Five Key Kang Comics
The season finale of Loki premiered earlier today on Disney+, and, wow. Just, WOW! Aside from the season one ending in spectacular fashion, the next Marvel Big Bad was finally introduced. Sorry, should have given the courtesy spoiler alert there. Now that is out of the way. Here are Five Key Kang Comics to add to your collection.
Avengers #8 gives readers the first appearance of the original version of Kang. With that being said, earlier iterations of the character can be found in Fantastic Four #19. Pharaoh Rama-Tut to be exact. Avengers #8 is hot right now and has seen gains of nearly 40% across low-grade copies in the past week. This means high-grade copies should be on the rise as well.
Fantastic Four #273
There is a lot going on in this book, so you may need to read through it a few times. With that being said, In Fantastic Four #273 readers are offered the first full appearance of Nathaniel Richards and the origin of Kang Prime. Needless to say, there is too much detail to cover here, but it’s a fantastic read. See what I did there.
Book number three on our Five Key Kang Comics is one that should play a larger role in the MCU. In Avengers #267 readers are introduced to the Council of Kangs. After today’s Loki episode, we now know that multiple versions of the character are on the way to the MCU. So, let’s just hope all of them are as great as the version that appeared today.
West Coast Avengers #61
West Coast Avengers #61 seems to be a perfect tie-in to what has been happening in the MCU. While the origins of Immortus, otherwise known as Kang the Conqueror are discussed, readers also get a cameo from the Time-Keepers as well. Finally, if that wasn’t enough, it is also revealed that Scarlet Witch is a Nexus Being. That means she is key to all possible timelines and realities. Now, that doesn’t seem important at all now, does it?
This book made the CBCS Hot List this week with a sales increase of over 1100%. The cover art by Alex Ross is so fitting, especially after the Loki finale. The bonus here is it’s still fairly cheap on the secondary market. In fact, you can grab a nice copy of Avenger #2 for about $25.
