1 Ice Cream Man #1

WRITER: W. Maxwell Prince
ARTIST: Martin Morazzo
This one has been announced as being developed for TV–which might be like a Twilight Zone/Tales from the Crypt type show I'm guessing.  Anyway, this one is selling in the $50 range right now.

2 Captain Marvel (Vol. 7) #17 2nd Print

WRITER: Kelly Sue DeConnick
ARTIST: Filipe Andrade
Yes, we all know and love this book.  Yes, we all should have bought it last year when 9.8's were selling in the $600-700 range.  No, a lot of us didn't do it.  It pushed to $1000 in the summer and is now hitting almost $1500 for those same 9.8's.

4 Return of Wolverine #1 J. Scott Campbell NYCC Variant /2000

WRITER: Charles Soule
ARTIST: Steve McNiven
$25 buy-in at NYCC (thanks Ray N. for the confirmation) and it is selling on the secondary market for around $100.  This one is serial #'d on the book and I again plead with publishers to follow in the steps of sports cards and do this for rarer variants–this will only help the hobby longterm!

5 Sparrowhawk #1 Stephanie Hans 1:15 Variant

WRITER: Delilah Dawson
ARTIST: Matias Basla
Faerie's aren't really my cup of tea (but I know there is a nice market out there for that genre) and this looks like a lot of Hans' covers, but the perception is that it is hard to find at the moment.  The price has gone from $25 all the way up to $50+ this week.

7 Deadpool (Vol. 5) #5

WRITER: Skottie Young
ARTIST: Scott Hepburn
I am a child of the 80's so Garbage Pail Kids hold a place in my heart (Adam Bomb was the best).  Apparently it does for others as well because this non-variant is selling for $15-20 just after release.

8 Fly #1 Stanley ‘Artgerm' Lau Variant

WRITER: Raven Gegory
Ok, I wrote about this book long ago, like 2 years ago, in a Ghost Hunting article (I need to find the time to bring that back I think), and it is still not easy to find.  Recent sales have gonefrom $25, to $40 to now $60.  Why do Amazing Fantasy #15 homages seem to work almost all the time??

9 Warrior Nun Areala #1

WRITER: Ben Dunn
ARTIST: Ben Dunn
This was literally a $3-5 book and then an announcement from Netflix that they were doing a show about it and then it popped to $25.  Man, this book just LOOKS like the mid-90's…

10 Deathstroke (Vol. 3) #36 Francesco Mattina Variant

WRITER: Christopher Priest
ARTIST: Ed Benes
This was preselling for $25+ and then once the flood hit after it was actually released, sales fell into the $10-15 range–but a TON of them have sold.  It is a great rogues gallery cover I will admit.

Just trying to go down the river with my girl and then swamp people start climbing in my boat…how rude.  In 2009 a Bethlehem pedigree 8.5 sold for $568.  This week, the same book sold for $7200!
