Question Question about Comics i've NEVER understood...

Why are first appearances (cameo) worth less than first (full) appearances? I've never understood this for the life of me. Can anyone give me a logical reason(s)?

Thanks,
Jason

Probably because a cameo is just that - normally the next issue they're presented in a much larger way and that's what collectors want.

you mean Wolverine in the issues of Hulk?
yeah, i agree, since it's a pretty good look at him, and not a one-inch tiny cameo.

Me as a collector i want the first thing they appeared in. (the first time ever seen) I think their first appearance should be more...

I'd have to agree with TedDastickJr and the opinion that it's much more better for a full acknowledged appearance than a tiny cameo that's pretty insignificance. A lot of characters can make cameos and not get a full appearance.

i remember reading about cameos and hidden 1st appearances as it relates to venom .. in some old Wizard magazine issue ..

it wasnt a cameo in Amazing Spiderman .. it was web of spiderman ..
did a quick ebay search of "1st app venom" and i think i found it .. Web of Spider-Man #18

it's also true of x-23 .. think some old issue had a test tube labelled x-23

kinda not special w just a blurb imo, but to a completist very valuable story-wise i guess.

You know a book(s) that pre-dates that book and has "Venom" in it?

Marvel Age #12 (black costume preview)

Peter Parker, Spectacular Spider-Man #90 pre-dates Secret Wars #8. (Spider-Man is wearing a black costume)

I have both of those books...

Me personally, i don't consider the costume Venom, but the costume + Eddie Brock = Venom

But, i'm aware that the costume is considered "Venom."

All these people "Venom" has attached to since Eddie Brock don't mean squat to me, personally...
