HOT 10 COMICS

hot10

1 Die! Die! Die! #1

WRITER: Robert Kirkman
ARTIST: Chris Burnham
Bravo Mr. Kirkman!  You pulled it off, and people LOVE it!  Some of the covers are selling in the $4-5 range, but the ‘I'm Drunk' and ‘No Word Bubbles' variants are selling the best in the $10-20 range.  I honestly just appreciate the fact that people did not get to spoil this.

2 Youngblood #2

WRITER: Rob Liefeld
ARTIST: Rob Liefeld
The comic world has gone 90's mad recently.  This is just another example.  Liefeld says that Prophet was optioned and now people want this ridiculously overprinted book again.  Like $10-15 for a NM copy.  Insanity I say.

3 Spider-Man Noir #1

WRITER: David Hine
ARTIST: Carmine Di Giandomenico
Yowza!  Ungraded copies are now at $60+ and a 9.8 just sold for $425 which, by the way, is almost 3 times higher than the previous all time high!

4 Titans (Vol. 3) #23 Brandon Peterson 1:25 B/W Variant

WRITER: Dan Abnett
ARTIST: Brandon Peterson
Despite Crush not making it into this issue, and it being a usually avoided B/W variant, sales are hitting $50.

5 Suicide Squad #23

WRITER: John Ostrander
ARTIST: Luke McDonnell
Birds of Prey movie news has once again brought life back into this book.  You should have bought it several months ago, but now you will have to pony up $25 for a raw copy and $100 for a 9.8.

6 Batgirl (Vol. 5) #20 Joshua Middleton Variant

WRITER: Hope Larson
ARTIST: Sami Basri
Clearly riding the coattails of #23, this one is now a $20 book as well.  Snow can make a cover look pretty cool I will admit.

7 Amazing Spider-Man #361

WRITER: David Michelinie
ARTIST: Mark Bagley
High grade raws are not easy to find anymore as they mostly have been graded at this point.  If you find one, expect to pay 3 figures.  9.8's are setting all time highs near $500.  Hey, if #300 can be a $2000 book, why can't this at least get to half that?

8 Ms. Marvel (Vol. 4) #31 Stephanie Hans ‘Virgin' Variant

WRITER: G. Willow Wilson
ARTIST: Nico Leon
I was definitely one who thought this was unnecessary and possibly a dumb idea…but beautiful covers win out most of the time–which is the case here.  Raws are selling for $80+.

9 Zinnober #2

WRITER: Thorsten Brochhaus
ARTIST: Ralf Singh
I saw a single copy sitting on the shelf and left it (dumb move).  This is virtually non-existent on eBay and it is showing in the $20-25 sales for it on the aftermarket.

10 Death of the Inhumans #1 Kaare Andrews 1:10 Variant

WRITER: Donny Cates
ARTIST: Ariel Olivetti
Not sure why this design variant (which most people generally ignore) is selling for more than the 1:25 Hildebrandt variant at $25-30. I guess it is strictly because of Vox.

Batman Incorporated #8 Scott Clark 1:25 Variant

WRITER: Grant Morrison
ARTIST: Scott Clark
In my opinion, this is one of the really good Batman variants.  Not easy to find at all and it shows in the current $50 price tag.

Venus #9

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Werner Roth & Mike Sekowsky
Ahhh…everyone is fighting over Venus!  Looks like bidders were too as a 7.5 just sold for $1500.  The last graded copy that sold was a 9.0 for $1000.
