HOT 10 COMICS

1 Uncanny X-Men #101

WRITER: Chris Claremont
ARTIST: Dave Cockrum
Blast from the past.  Has always been an awesome book but with movie news, it is hitting new heights.  It is now a $2k book in 9.8 and could continue to go higher.  Thanks Philip Chung for the info.

2 Ultimate X #1 Art Adams 1:50 Metal Claw Variant

WRITER: Jeph Loeb
ARTIST: Art Adams
Metal Claws > Foil > Bone Claws.  That's all you need to know about these subtle variants.  This is now a $125+ book and very few if any are available on eBay at the moment.  Surprising to me to be honest.

3 Guardians of the Galaxy (Vol. 2) #1

WRITER: Dan Abnett
ARTIST: Paul Pelletier
Positive buzz around the movie coming out today has renewed interest in this book.  9.6's have seen a 50% increase in the past several weeks.

4 X-Men Gold #1 J. Scott Campbell Virgin Variant

WRITER: Marc Guggenheim
ARTIST: Ardian Syaf
A 3rd different cover from this series has now shown up somewhere on the Hot 10.  I am actually amazed the controversy surrounding this book is still causing these to sell well.  This Campbell, limited to 1440, was preselling for $40 but has now passed the century mark.

5 Amazing Spider-Man #569 2nd Print

WRITER: Dan Slott
ARTIST: John Romita, Jr.
1st appearance of Anti-Venom.  Hard to find and hard to find in high grade.  Now selling for upwards of $150 raw.

6 Suicide Squad (Vol. 5) #16 Lee Bermejo Variant

WRITER: Rob Williams
ARTIST: Tony Daniel
Creepy-ish homage to Batman: Harley Quinn, there have been a large number of sales in the $10 range.  Once again, do not sleep on these ‘B' Variants.

7 Uncanny X-Men (Vol.3) #19 J. Scott Campbell 1:50 Variant

WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis
ARTIST: Chris Bachalo
Granov/Campbell, Campbell/Granov.  Both #19 and #20 are great covers and both are red hot because they feature Magik.  This one wins out only because recent sales are higher.  And eBay, please stop autocorrecting me to ‘magic'!!!

8 Batgirl (Vol. 3) #12

WRITER: Bryan Q. Miller
ARTIST: Lee Garbett
I should be ashamed (you know, since I do own all the Artgerm books out there).  I honestly was not aware that this was a $60+ book now.  Up from the $40's just a month ago.  Still is probably the best Batgirl cover out there.

9 Amazing Spider-Man #300

WRITER: David Michelinie
ARTIST: Todd McFarlane
Yes, it is a blue chip.  Yes, it has been here before.  In the past 2 weeks, there have been 4 sales in the $1700-1800 range for 9.8's.  Still amazes me.

10 The Button Lenticular Covers

WRITER: Tom King & Joshua Williamson
ARTIST: Jason Fabok & Howard Porter
Batman & The Flash storyline is very good so far IMO and hopefully it will lead to some much anticipated answers.  In the meantime, these are selling for 2x+ cover even though there are a lot of them out there.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1

WRITER: Kevin Eastman
ARTIST: Kevin Eastman
A book that just doesn't show up often, a 9.8 sold for $24k.  The last sale that I could locate was about 3 years ago for $15k.  Pretty nice increase I would say.

Mysterious Adventures #19

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Ross Andru, Bill Savage & Dick Beck
I wanted to include this book as there was an auction that ended for a CGC 8.0 at $1500.  Extremely small number in the census (7 total) for this Pre-Code offering, this cover is just incredible and deserves to be noted.
