Giant Size X-Men #1 High Grade was also stolen and sold to a dealer who returned it after seeing evidence of Carlos’ ownership.

The thief is described as  “a man in his 50s, with a greyish mustache, very round with slicked back greyish hair. He wore a military hat.” If this sounds familiar to you or you see any of these books being sold PLEASE reach out either to us at the network or to Carlos directly via the facebook link above. He is devastated as he was trying to get them priced to sell in order to buy an iron man suit to do charity hospital visits for children. If you know any comic book dealers or store owners please also share this with them so we can catch this guy and recover the books.
