1 Edge of Spider-Verse #2 (2014)

0 WRITER: Jason Latour
ARTIST: Robbi Rodriguez
This the hottest book in the world and by a wide margin. There are even people trying to sale variants of this book on eBay claiming to have a darker cover etc. VF copies are getting $85 with NM going for over $100. I don't see this book going down anytime in 2015.

2 Descender #1 (2015) Eh! B&W Variant (500 copies)

001_descender01f WRITER: Jeff Lemire
ARTIST: Dustin Nguyen
The most exciting and critically acclaimed comic in a long time dropped this past week. There are tons of variants, but the rarest and most unique is the Eh! B&W variant. With a print run of only 500 copies this is the hardest to get copy of Descender. All other Image variants are 1000 copies minimum. This books will be the Saga RRP, Wytches NYYC etc when the chips fall.

3 Inhuman #12 (2015) Phil Noto Variant

WRITER: Charles Soule
ARTIST: Ryan Stegman
Of all the Noto variant covers to come out this past month for Marvel this book is the hottest. It is constantly selling for $15 dollars right now and was obviously very under-ordered. It's also a gorgeous cover and very unique one at that. This book also has the Medusa vs Black Bolt showdown that led to a huge moment in the Inhuman world.


4 Salvation Run #7 (2008) Neal Adams Variant

WRITER: Matthew Sturges
ARTIST: Sean Chen
Ever since this variant was showcased on the website, all copies have dried up and this is now a $100 book. The Neal Adams Joker cover is one of the best ever if you ask me and there are only few thousand copies of this book. There might still be some in boxes at some stores, I suggest you find them ASAP.


5 Secret Origins #10 (2015)

WRITER: Cameron Stewart
ARTIST: Irene Koh
The weird almost origin of Batgirl continued to sell well this past week on eBay with copies being scooped up for $12 very regularly. I'm not sure if this book will have any longevity, but if you can find them still at cover it's worth picking up.


6 Batman #35 (2014) DC Combo Pack Variant

WRITER: Scott Snyder
ARTIST: Greg Capullo
Endgame is turning out to be one of the most epic Batman stories ever, not to mention the first Joker origin of the New 52. The Suicide Squad #7,8 Harley origins are $45 books, and I suspect a in a few years from now these will be too. The DC Combo Packs are rare so, regardless of your thoughts on them, there might be less than 500 copies of this in the wild. Any Batman book this limited and this important = $$$


7 Convergence #0 (2015) Adam Hughes 1:100 Variant

WRITER: Jeff King
ARTIST: Ethan Van Sciver
I hate the pre-selling of books and hate putting this on the list, but this book is too hot. Once the cover was leaked earlier in the week by AH on twitter, every single pre-order copy of this book was scooped up and copies on eBay were going for $189 and more. This is his best cover in years in my opinion and this book will only get hotter closer to release.


8 Amazing Spider-Man #678 (2012) 1:50 Mary Jane Venom Variant

WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: Humberto Ramos
So a VF- copy with 7 color breaking spine creases sold for over $1400 this past week on eBay. This book is weird, not all that rare considering, but it might be the most lucrative variant on the market right now. The cover is ugly, but it still draws you in. This book, the JSC Siege #1 and Wolverine #1 Deadpool incentives command the most attention in the modern variant game and have for years.


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

WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: Humberto Ramos
This is one of those books that was slept on when it came out, and once people realized Silk #1 was going to sell out and be huge, this blew up. It was a 1:10 variant which isn't super rare, but consider the fact it is Silk's 1st appearance and it's harder to find makes this book attractive to collectors.

10 Descender #1 (2015) Cover B

WRITER: Jeff Lemire
ARTIST: Dustin Nguyen

The book was heavily pre-ordered by most stores and sites based on the writer. Most people weren't aware that there was a cover B going to retail and a lot of stores never ordered any, only getting copy A. This book immediately began selling better on the secondary market than cover A. It's outselling Cover A 3 to 1 right now on eBay as well. Not sure if this is Manifest Destiny #7 cover B all over again, or if this will stick, but as of today this book is hot.

    3 out of 10!! not good!!! GREAT list!! And spider-gwen is the new harley but don’t know is she has staying power

  • David P

    I’ve been grabbing the Walking Dead #100 2nd print variant for months now when I find them. I know it’s been speculated with the lower print run but I just checked eBay and they’re starting to break $30. I believe it’s only going to climb higher as we close in on his television debut.

    Possibly a CBSI Top 10 book?

  • JamesGoodwin

    Variants rule the day! Great list Trey. Think you are on to something with the combo variants and Endgame in general.

    This site is the best. I am new to the site, but have been “lurking” on the google site for a while. Not because I don’t want to join, but because my request hasn’t been accepted for a couple of months now. I’ve been eager to get involved and contribute. Either way, I am a fairly new collector and I appreciate all that you guys do to help us keep up.

    Great top 10 by the way. I found three copies of Salvation Run 7 Neal Adams variant at my LCS for 10 bucks a piece about a month ago. Glad to see it on this list.

  • Jason S

    Love the list Trey. Totally agree about the Combo variants. They are just waiting to be “hot”. And you cant seem to find a 35 anywhere.

  • Santos

    Idk about you guys, but i think we better get use to seeing convergence 0 on this list at least until it launches.

    Awesome cover!

  • Ben C

    Love it as always, thanks for doing this!
