Marvel Specialty Comics

If you have never heard of or seen Marvel Specialty comics, then you are truly missing some very cool stuff. You see, Over the years Marvel has produced numerous volumes of these specialty comics that have partnered the publisher with various pro-social groups and corporations utilizing the various Marvel characters to promote specific causes or products. Everything from Toy Fair, to Home Depot, to the U.S. Military, to Prevent Child Abuse America. Generally speaking these are all fun books.

Personally, I have quite a few of these books in my own collection. Which is why I was excited to find this particular comic, Spider-Man Battles The Myth Monster, for sale on ebay. What shocked me was the price attached to it ($40.00). Sure, I wanted to purchase the comic, but that price seemed to me to be a tad steep. So I decided to do a Google search for the title and came up with it for sale on Amazon for just $9.99. Cool, I thought, 10 bucks is way better than 40. then I found this link, to the Epilepsy Foundation which is selling the very same comic for a mere three bucks with no shipping (or you could buy a bundle of 50 for $73.00)

Can you guess what I did next? I thought you could. (I’ll add a link to my review of the comic on SpiderFan as soon as I get and read the comic then write and post the review.)
