Rick and Morty #1 1:30 Ryan Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Rick and Morty variants have appeared here a few times over the years, but these books are legitimately hot. This book is a solid $100 bill, and has almost doubled from just a few months ago.

Jean Grey #1 Roadshow JSC Variant

I keep waiting for the bottom to fall out of this one, but it simply isn’t happening. Prices “bottomed out” at about $120, only to go right back up. We’ll see what happens after more are released at SDCC.

All New Wolverine #2 1:25 Lopez Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

Htfcomics mentioned this a few weeks ago in the comments of my last column, and this book containing the first appearance X-23’s cloned sisters is still selling well.

Optimus Prime #9 Whalen Variant

Drops this week!

Tom Whalen is huge in the poster game, so not sure why it doesn’t translate to comics. I still love it, and am awaiting the TMNT variants.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.

  • You have the wrong cover pictured the Jean Grey JSC variant. Cover D should be the white costume.

  • No offense toHtfcomics and not looking for credit, but I wrote about All-New Wolverine #2 Lopez variant 4 weeks ago on the G+ board. I mentioned how it was the first appearance of Gabby, Zelda and Bellona. That Zelda dies in #4 and Bellona goes back later in the series to join Kimura. This all happens after Doctor Strange assists them with removing life reducing nanites from their bodies. Gabby remains with Laura in a sort of sister/daughter relationship. There were no copies on the bay at the time and past sales had creeped up to $50. Now it is $75 and up. I think whatever Marvel has in store for Gabby will drive the demand for this book. If she continues to be a major character this will be a long term key.

  • MUCH RESPECT FOR THE CALL OUT…THE VARIANT LIFE IS WHAT I’M ABOUT…IVE YET TO GET SOMETHING WRONG FOR SHIRT TERM/LONG TERM COMIC BUYER/SELLERS…YOULL PROB BE HEARING FROM ME IN THE FUTURE..✌
