1 Lady Killer #1 (2015)

1392293_xl WRITER: Joelle Jones

I'm not a fan of Dark Horse books, they never tend to hold value and I'm a little leery about this title as well. Lady Killer has been the surprise of 2015 so far and copies are flying off eBay for around $50 for a NM copy. Book is trending up still though and the ECCC variant at 500 copies should be huge.

2 Edge of Spider-Verse #2 (2014)

0 WRITER: Jason Latour
ARTIST: Robbi Rodriguez
Spider-Gwen is one of the most original ideas Marvel has produced in sometime. Yes, its based on an old character, but Gwen has always been a fan favorite. This character of Spider-Gwen is going to be around for a long time. Print run on this book is high, but it doesn't matter as of yet.

3 Salvation Run #7 (2008) Neal Adams Variant (1:25)

WRITER: Matthew Sturges
ARTIST: Sean Chen
This book has dried up on eBay and if it does show up it's now a $85-100 book. Neal Adams killed this cover, and people are starting to take notice. Unique Joker covers have a huge market and this is one of the best ones ever drawn. Buy this book if you can find it. Look at Detective #880, it has a higher print run and is still a $50-60 book.


Deathstroke Vol 3 #1 (2014) Sorrentino Variant (1:25)

WRITER: Tony Daniel
ARTIST: Tony Daniel
This book has snuck up on the market. There hasn't been a single copy of this on eBay in weeks and it sold for $60 then. Regular cover is getting $12 now. This series is getting great reviews and people are starting to take notice. Look at all the 1:25 variants of this series; they are on fire. This book is has a chance at being $150-200 very soon. I highly doubt many stores ordered 25 copies to begin with.


5 Enormous #1 (2014) NYCC Variant (106 copies)

WRITER: Tim Daniel
ARTIST: Mehdi Cheggour
106 copies of any book is incredible low. 106 copies of one of the hottest books on the market equals $800-1200 graded sales. Tim Daniel hit a home run with this series and this is the book to own. Fox has optioned it, and if it comes to fruition this has a chance at being a 3-4k book down the road.


6 Spider-Woman Vol 5 #5 (2015) Siya Oum Variant (1:50)

WRITER: Dennis Hopeless
ARTIST: Greg Land
Greg Land has been killing it on his variant covers the past 12 months. This is his homage to the original Spider-Woman cover and it really nicely done. Spider-Woman's books are selling well, with 2nd and 3rd prints of early issues coming to print. I know I sound like a broken record, but how many stores ordered 50 copies of this? This is a $100 book and climbing at the time of writing.


7 Batman Vol 2 #21 (2013) Capullo Sketch Variant (1:100)

WRITER: Scott Snyder
ARTIST: Greg Capullo
This is the first apperance of Duke Thomas. Who is he? He is the kid on the cover of  Batman #34 taking a selfie with Batman. He is also the star of a new upcoming series from DC called “We are Robin”. This variant could be bought for $25 earlier in the week, right now only a few can be found for less than $100. DC has big plans for Duke, so grab this book or the Jock variant quickly.


8 Detective Comics Endgame #1(2015)

lWRITER: Brian Buccellato
ARTIST: Roge Antonia
I don't know if anyone else has noticed but this book is sold out online now. I mentioned it on CBSI a few weeks back before it came out. My gut says something big is going to come from this book. The Anarchy as Joker's son rumor being the main reason. There are only a few copies left on eBay for cheap, and I don't expect them to be there long


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

WRITER: Jeff Lemire
ARTIST: Dustin Nguyen
This book had a nice week, with the limited copies still available selling well on eBay. It has the most unique cover of all the variants and the smallest print run to date.


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

WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: Humberto Ramos
People like Silk, Silk is popular. This is Silk's first appearance, and it's a limited variant. Any questions? $100 book raw right now with no ceiling. Silk's books are in some cases selling better than Spider-Gwen if you look at the market numbers. This isn't the EoS #2 Land Variant yet, but it's slowly closing the gap.


Suicide Squad Vol 2 #11 (2002)

WRITER: Keith Giffen
ARTIST: Paco Medina
Possible villain in the Suicide Squad movie called Antiphon's 1st appearance. This book had a very small print run as is and it has a black cover making high quality books hard to find as is. posted this a few days ago, and they have been spot on so far regarding the movie.


Silk #1 (2015) Comics Pro

WRITER: Robbie Thompson
ARTIST: Dave Johnson
Another book with an alleged print run close to or less than 100. Not a lot of people know about this book, or it's existence. Silk #1 regular covers are going for $10, and this book is closing in on $200 raw. I really think this book has no ceiling, and could reach $500 raw by summer if Silk stays hot.

    Only two this week! Damn I’m out of he loop! I knew I shouldnt have bought those ASM 41s.
    Great job Trey, couldn’t agree more about the death stroke read!

  • Matt DeVoe

    No one’s doing a list like this except for this site. It’s pure awesomeness.

    I’m glad people are starting to pick up on the Deathstroke. My LCS had the 1:25 variant, but sold it to some guy before I got there! They should make new comic book day on Sat. so I can wait by the door before they open!

    I passed on Detective Endgame when I did my previews and now I’m regretting it. Sold out locally as well. Hastings was my last stop and they said they were ordered in January but their distributor (I’m guessing Diamond) recalled them the following day and didn’t send any copies to my local Hastings this week. I don’t know what’s going on with that other than I found none in my area.

    Glad I saw this post before I went home. I ran to my local comic shop and they had plenty of copies of Detective Comics End Game. I purchased 10 of them so I’m counting on a pay off. I love this site I can miss a day without checking it. Thanks for all the great info.

    I love seeing the Hot Top 10! Brings back my youth Wizard nostalgia 🙂 Great Job Trey, your hard work is always appreciated.

    great picks as per usual! Enormous just keeps building steam, defying the trend of indie books optioned for film/tv quickly falling off once theyre no longer news. I sold way too many of mine way too cheaply i think. Cover A for #1 has been the big surprise for me. i sold a couple for 32.95 right after the news and theyre now moving at 60. Minor quibble in that i think a valiant book or 2 ought to’ve made the cut. god knows when they will again
