  • Magneto becomes new Headmaster
Bad guy, good guy, bad guy, good guy. It seems Magneto just can't make up his mind. In this issue, Magneto becomes Headmaster of the school and takes the place of Charles Xavier. 

Of course, this doesn't last very long, and Magneto returns to the persona that we all know him as, and love him for. Not really a major key issue comic, but a key issue nonetheless.

eBay - More unslabbed goodness here. 

mycomicshop - Three copies available at mycomichshop. Highest copy is a VF. 

NewKadia - NM and low NM copies in stock.

  • Death of Cypher (Doug Ramsey)
Because the character during the time was so roundly hated by fans and those who had to draw him, the editors finally killed him off during the Fall of the Mutants cross over story. However, this issue is acclaimed as one of the most touching moments in The New Mutants comics, as Warlock and Cypher developed a close friendship during the series, and Wolfsbane developed a short-lived romantic relationship with Doug.

Strangely fans began to like the character after his demise in this issue.

eBay - We've got unslabbed copies and one CGC 9.8 that's actually priced right and still under a hundred bucks. 

mycomicshop - Two unslabbed copies available. VF is the highest grade so far.

NewKadia - Only one NM+ copy. 2nd highest copy is a solid NM.

  • First brief appearance of Cable
Demand for Cable's first appearances are extremely hot right now. There's little doubt that Cable will make his big onscreen debut soon, especially since Fox is planning an X-Force spin-off movie.

New Mutants #86 holds the brief first appearance of Cable. I've had a copy of this issue since I was collecting in the early 90s. This comic is a sleeper, and not too many people know that this issue holds the first brief appearance of Cable. 

Unslabbed comics are relatively cheap still. CGC 9.8s are still under a hundred bucks, if you can find them.

eBay - More of a selection for unslabbed copies. No CGC at this moment, but a 9.8 did sell not long ago. There's a PGX 9.6 available. People are slowly catching on that this issue is the first brief appearance of Cable. 

mycomicshop - Two unslabbed copies here. Highest is a VF.

ComicLink - ComicLink brings the CGC goodness with this issue. Two CGC 9.8s located, and their already slightly above the $100 mark. 

NewKadia - Two copies in stock. Highest grade is a VF+.

  • First full appearance of Cable
And here we are with the first full appearance of Cable. This is another of the hottest copper age Marvel Comics first appearances out there. As mentioned before, right now this issue is extremely hot!

Another Rob Liefeld creation, another popular character within the X-Men mythos, and one of the best New Mutants key issues to get. Cable was retconned to be the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor. His birth name is Nathan Summers.

eBay - No problem finding copies here for the first appearance of Cable. Loads of unslabbed goodness, and a few CGC options. I saw two so far, both already above the $200 mark. There's a CGC 9.6 and 9.4 as well.

mycomicshop - Two CGC 9.8s located here, already past the $200 mark! Three 9.6s and only a few unslabbed options.

  • 2nd appearance of Cable
Nothing much to say about this issue, except that it's the 2nd appearance of Cable. No doubt that this issue is getting quite a bit of attention lately in the market but not that much. May be a copper age key issue comic to consider whether you care for the character or not. 

I do predict that this will be one of the New Mutants key comics that many will be gunning for after Cable makes his onscreen debut.

eBay - Unslabbed copies, but CGC copies have yet to sprout up. Unslabbed copies are still pretty affordable, but people are catching on. 

mycomicshop - More unslabbed copies. Three available. Highest is a solid NM here. 

NewKadia - Three copies in stock. Highest is a solid NM copy. There is a low NM copy here as well.

  • Death of Warlock
For some reason I like the odd ball characters from the X-Men Universe like Longshot and Warlock. Apparently, not too many others do. In this issue we unfortunately see the death of Warlock.

Not an in-demand key at the moment, but a New Mutants key comic regardless.

eBay - Quite a few unslabbed copies and quite a few copies that are in comic lots on the mighty eBay. May be worth getting a comic lot the pics do prove they're in high grade.

mycomicshop - Three unslabbed options. Highest is a VF. 

ComicConnect - The folks at ComicConnect bring the CGC goodness. If high grade CGC is more your taste, a CGC 9.8 copy available here. 

NewKadia - Two copies located. Highest is a low NM.
