1318664_xl WRITER: Kelly Sue DeConnick
ARTIST: Filipe Andrade
Starting to notice a trend? This book is still selling faster than Pamela Anderson Playboy's in the 90's, for different reason of course, but same group of people : ) Kamala will have a role in the upcoming Avengers animated TV show and the rumors of an ABC show keep trickling out. Her storyline is fresh, and this book is the one to own. There are other books that have 1st appearance ties, but this is the Grandaddy.

2 NYX #3 (2012)

NYX_Vol_1_3 WRITER: Joe Quesada
ARTIST: Josh Middleton
Well Marvel decided to do something semi-intelligent for once. Since killing off Wolverine to rob Fox was their main focus and nothing else, they plan on bringing Wolverine back as a transgender after Secret Wars and will name her X-23. I might be lying about the “transgender” part, but Marvel would do it tomorrow to show how “diverse” they are. This book is the 1st appearance of the new Wolverine (his clone): X-23.  9.8's jumped $100 this week into $450 range. Buy fast, this won't ever get below where it is now.

3 Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 (2015) Cover K Incentive J Scott Campbell Variant

WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: Adam Kubert
People love beautiful covers and this book has a grade A one. The image shows a happy Peter and a Gen-13 character, I mean, um Mary Jane Watson. This was a 1:50 variant and people in the groups went out in droves last Wed to make sure they got their copy from their LCS. This book is will be like SSM #20 variant and will stay “hot” for a long, long time. Buy now, high grade copies are tough to find.


Lumberjanes #01 (2014) (BOOM! Exclusive Cover) 1 of 250

WRITER: Grace Ellis
ARTIST: Brooke Allen
Last time Fox fast tracked a movie it was Deadpool. They went from  a “leaked” trailer to casting and filming in 6 months. Fox head honchos have fast tracked Boom's Lumberjanes in the same fashion. It's about a group of softball players : ) who basically form a Scooby Doo like team, and solve mysteries of the paranormal. There is only 250 copies of this book and it was only sold on Boom's website. 250 copies dude, if this does hit the silver screen it could be a 1k book in 9-10 months.


5 Star Wars #1 (2015) Luke Skywalker C2E2 RRP Variant

WRITER: Jason Aaron
ARTIST: John Cassaday
These books have dried up and are going for insane prices right now. Nobody has a clue how rare they are, but 200 copies is the number I was told earlier in the week. To be honest i've heard 1k, 500, and so on, but looking at eBay sales and how many are available 200 sure makes sense. CGC 9.8 (AKA a CBCS 9.4) went for $600 B.O earlier in the week. Raws are still in the $300 range. The regular variant is getting up in the $30 range as Van Shima mentioned in his Variant article.


6 Nonplayer #1 (2011) Cover A 1st Print

WRITER: Nate Simpson
ARTIST: Nate Simpson
4.5 years isn't too long to wait for the second issue of this series is it? Well that is exactly what Nate Simpson did to the public with Nonplayer #2. The crazy part is people didn't mind and gobbled up copies of #2 online and at their LCS. This book wasn't stagnant on eBay for awhile, but people heard about #2 and began buying the low hanging fruit. This book wasn't heavily printed at under 10k copies, so finding NM copies in the wild is a pipe dream for most people. 9.8 copies are hitting the $150-175 mark right now. Buy quickly, this has a ton of room to grow.


All-New Marvel Now Point One #1 (2014) Cover A 1st Ptg Regular Salvador Larroca

WRITER: Al Ewing
ARTIST: Lee Garbett
Did I mention Kamala Khan is hotter than Katy Perry on Oklahoma asphalt? This is her full 1st appearance according to CGC and people have Scorched Earth Policy'd all copies that were sitting on shelves or websites. You could have bought 100 of these things a few weeks back at $7. Now NM+ copies are getting $25-40 per copy. Do I think this will ever surpass CM #17 2nd print …, but it will be a valuabl and heavily desired book for years to come.


Amazing Fantasy Vol 2 #15 (2006)

WRITER: Greg Pak
ARTIST: Takeshi Miyazawa
I had this book as a honorable mention a few months back for a completely different reason than today. I heard rumors he was in Avengers. AoU and those rumors and I were wrong. Well another rumor this week popped up online claiming after Secret Wars….. Amadeus Cho, not Bruce Banner will take the role as Hulk. I didn't buy it either then re-read Planet Hulk and World War Hulk this week. Check out Hulk #106 and this story starts to make a lot more sense. They have history and lots of it.


Divinity #1 (2015) 1:40 Larosa Variant

WRITER: Matt Kindt
ARTIST: Ryan Winn
This book is honestly a lot hotter than the 9th spot, but I have had multiple complaints from people saying, ” I can't find or afford this book, and I'm tired of seeing books I can't find at my LCS”. Yep that happens a lot to me, which thoroughly makes my day go A LOT slower. Divinity and Valiant are extremely hot right. The Book of Death's are about to come out and this comic lays the groundwork for it. It's also rarer than Shaun Leggitt without a beer.


10 Star Wars #2 (2015) Han Solo Variant

WRITER: Jason Aaron
ARTIST: John Cassaday
Han has been unfrozen again and makes an appearance on the Top 10. This book is $60 dollars raw right now. I was told a lot of retailers and stores weren't aware that #2 was an Action Figure variant like #1 and didn't order as many as they should have. This created a supply and demand issue, because Han Solo is a bad ass! People are trying to make sets of these figure variants and Boba, C2E2, and Han are the chase covers. $100 + when the movie comes out will be a reality. Buy now still.


X-23 #1 (2010) 1:25 DELL'OTTO VARIANT

WRITER: Marjorie Liu
ARTIST:Will Conrad
This is one of the coolest covers ever, it's IMPOSSIBLE to find, and it's a Dell'Otto. Try and find one, I dare you.


Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect Vol 1 #1 (1992)

WRITER: Peter David
ARTIST: George Pérez
I'm hearing rumors and seeing things online that would indicate Maestro will make it out of Future Imperfect from the Secret Wars and cause problems in the Marvel Universe for years to come. Balding, bearded, long hair, old man Hulk is pretty bad ass even though he's an a-hole.
