1 Silk #1 (2015) Stacey Lee 1:25 Variant

0 WRITER: Robbie Thompson
ARTIST: Stacey Lee
Long anticipated, this book is the buy-this-damn-book of the week! Following the surprise popularity of Spider-Gwen, there is every reason to believe that interest in Silk is going to skyrocket. Sales for the Stacey Lee 1:25 variant are already chasing the $100 mark on eBay, and are guaranteed to keep rising. The standard cover will have a large print run, so it won’t be a a high-dollar book any time soon, but it wouldn’t hurt to grab one or two of those as well, for future spec.

2 Amazing Spider-Man #4 (2014) Humberto Ramos 1:10 Variant

1 WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: Humberto Ramos
With the release of her own solo title, it only makes sense that Silk’s first appearance would also come into demand. This is a $50 book right now, and will also climb as more folks get on the Silk train (Hmmm).

3 Edge of Spider-Verse #2 (2014)

WRITER: Jason Latour
ARTIST: Robbi Rodriguez
Last week, we talked about the Greg Land variant of this book, and the crazy awesome prices it was getting. Let’s not overlook the standard cover – this $4 book is an easy $75-$100 sale right now. Like Granny used to say, “That ain’t too shabby, you little piece of crap!”


4 Enormous #1 (2014)

WRITER: Tim Daniel
ARTIST: Mehdi Cheggour
With the Fox announcement this week that they would be making a TV show based on this runaway indie hit, prices have doubled, and are still climbing. Completed sales for the #1 A cover, a $35-$40 book a week ago, have passed $75, and the book is listed in the $100 neighborhood now. The #1B cover is also desirable, as is the #1 Hastings Variant.


5 Rust #1 (1992) Special Limited Edition

WRITER: Steve Miller
ARTIST: Phil Hester
Spawn fans and collectors were rocked recently with the discovery by some astute comic geekulator, that there is a sketch of Spawn in Rust #1 one month before Malibu Sun #13, which was previously considered his first appearance. This book is drying up quickly and prices are reflecting that scarcity. The one to snatch is the smaller print foil Special Limited Edition.


6 Epic Illustrated #3 (1980)

There has long been rumors and talk of a Dreadstar movie in the works, but this week Benderspink and Universal Cable Productions released the word that they are developing a TV show starring Jim Starlin’s outer-space swashbuckler. Accordingly, his first appearance in Epic Illustrated #3 is gaining steam. Near Mint copies cost more than a $100 hooker and she’s getting more expensive every night.


7 Captain America #168 (1973)

WRITER: Tony Isabella/Roy Thomas
ARTIST: Sal Buscema
Speaking of hookers, loose lips let fly a rumor that Baron Zemo II – Helmut Zemo – is slated to be the villain in the next Captain America film. Not confirmed, but hey . . . money in the mattress and whatnot.


8 Morlocks #1 (2002)

WRITER: Geoff Johns
ARTIST: Shawn C. Martinbrough
Gina Carano has signed up to play Angel Dust in the upcoming Deadpool movie, and yes, she could kick your ass! Angel Dust’s first appearance is Morlocks #1. Go buy one.


9 Ultimate Fallout #4 (2011)

WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis/Jonathan Hickman/Nick Spencer
ARTIST: Clayton Crain/Salvador Larroca/Sara Pichelli
Okay, this one is a bit of a stretch but hey, there’s room in your spec longbox for one more, right? With the announcement that Spider-Man is coming back home to Marvel Films, and the further announcement that he would not be played by Andy Garfield, wheels started spinning and certain folks pondered “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if the Spider-Man they introduced was Miles Morales?” There have been other signals from Marvel that they may drift toward the Ultimate Marvel universe for upcoming projects, so . . . you never know. Mile’s first is in Ultimate Fallout #4 (1st print).


10 Mortal Kombat X #1 (2015) Retailer Incentive 1:10 Variant

WRITER: Shawn Kittelsen
ARTIST: Dexter Soy
Video game tie-ins are never a sure thing. Sometimes a game lends itself to other media, sometimes not. Sometimes a game is so good, gamers can’t stop playing and smoking weed long enough to take a break and read a comic. At any rate, DC’s Mortal Kombat X seems to have crossed over pretty successfully. Plus, we needed DC somewhere on this list (Marvel is curb-stomping you this week DC!). The variant is doing $25 right now, and sets of the #1 A & B covers are doing about the same. Not a bad pick-up.
