I really hate this.
Does anyone read Wizard? It seems that this comic is right now the number one most sought-after comic right now, because it's the introduction of Deadpool. Never mind that Wade's character wouldn't be developed into the insane wisecracker we all know and love until much later. Nevermind that the comic sucks and the art is terrible. It was the first appearance of Deadpool, and therefore it must be had.
In my ideal world, comics are only sought after because they are genuinely good, with gripping stories and excellent art, not because of some vauge "collector's value".
