News came out this week that former Daily Show and Colbert Report Executive Producer Ben Karlin was in-words with ABC to adapt Marvel Comic’s Damage Control as a 30 minute a episode television series. Damage Control is the government program that cleans up cities and buildings after a super-hero melt-down; meaning that after something happens like Captain America throwing the Red Scull through a restaurant, Damage Control is there to clean up the mess.

Damage Control had three four part mini-series with the first one being a standout, with Damage Control #1 from 1989 selling from $10 to $20. This is a book pulled directly out of the dollar bin.

The clear winner in the Damage Control TV-Show news is Marvel Comics Presents #19 (May 1989) – this features the first appearance of Damage Control in name and features the full team. This book has already sold for $60 on ebay. So it is trending upwards with most average sale prices around $25 to $30 – this is a book to be looking for with great potential to continuing increasing in value.

Bleedingcool wrote an article today saying that the REAL first appearance of Damage Control was Marvel Age Annual #4 – This book features a preview of Damage Control #1 a full year before the book was released (June of 1988) – Marvel Age first appearances usually see a bump in price when a new announcement has been made but overtime the value drops, so if you find these sell them fast as they sell well now but will not hold value.
