Very collectible title. Some definite value increases in 2014 and through 2015. US collectors seem to be picking up issues....suffice it to say that after so many years, this title is HOT!

#1 shows up on eBay UK a lot so buy with caution if a seller says 'rare'. The free gift is a Captain Britain Mask. The free gift in #24 is scarcer by far. Yet for #1 with gift I've seen prices of £35. That's the auction-fever excitement of eBay I guess! The free gift Super Jet with #24 sold for £23.22 on eBay UK in Mar 2008. And another #24 with gift fetched £67 in Mar 2014!

A CGC graded 9.6 Near Mint Plus copy fetched $299 (£200!) in the Comic Link Febrruary 2014 auction.

Issue #8 has the first appearance of Betsy Braddock as Psylocke before any appearances in the American Marvel comics. Noted dealer and collector Paul Baddeley has offered a very high grade copy for sale a £139.99 on eBay UK. He's right to draw attention to this issue and I will be interested to see if it sells at his price.

Jun 2015. UK collector Glenn Preedy sold a copy for £95. Keep me posted of any more sales!

Apr 2020: a 9.8 CGC graded copy fetched $1,777 or £1,420! Incredible!
