HOT 10 COMICS

1 Naomi #1

WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis
ARTIST: Jamal Campbell
Well, the Naomi train is at full power it seems.  The book was already up to around $25 early in the week, and then hit another gear and jumped to around $40.  I'm pretty sure this has been said before, but this does appear to be a character that DC is putting a lot of faith in.

2 Immortal Hulk #16 Joe Bennett 1:25 Variant

WRITER: Al Ewing
ARTIST: Joe Bennett
I’m not going to even get into the 2nd print mess, or that this dropped from a high of $150 to the current $100ish, or that when it is in a bag and board, it is just not pretty.  I'm just going to say that $100 is still an incredible high the week of release.

3 Amber Blake #1 Catherine Nodet 1:10 Variant

WRITER: Jade Lagardere
ARTIST: Butch Guice
From the synopsis, this book reminds me of a female version of something like the Kingsmen?  These books actually intrigue me and the early reviews appear to be positive on this title.  Likely low print, the 1:10 variant is hitting 4x ratio immediately after release this week.

4 Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0

WRITER: Geoff Johns
ARTIST: Lee Moder
DC debuted their costumed Stargirl at Wondercon and interest has spiked interest here again.  Raws had settled in below $20 and are back up in the $50 range and a 9.8 copy just sold for $330.  Hope the buyer of the 9.8 2 weeks ago for $150 is feeling pretty good!

5 Spider-Man/Deadpool #47

WRITER: Robbie Thompson
ARTIST: Matt Horak
Whether Mr Liefeld thinks so or not, the market recognizes this as the first Major X…  Just don't try to get this one signed folks.  Recent sales in the 20-35 range clearly trump the Deadpool 10 prices of 10 bucks…

6 Sonata #1 ComicsPRO Edition

WRITER: David Hine
ARTIST: Brian Haberlin
Similar to Dark Age #1 last week, this ComicsPRO edition isn't a variant because the title does not even release until June.  A month ago, this was $10-15.  Now it's $45 and a copy just sold for $80—and now it is a ghost

7 Special Marvel Edition #15

WRITER: Steve Englehart & Jim Starlin
ARTIST: Jim Starlin & Al Milgrom
Shang Chi is back on the list with a vengeance setting all time highs in 9.6 at $1900 (previously $1250) and 9.4 at $750 (previously $700).  Proof that the initial surge isn't always the peak for some of these books.

8 Akira #1

WRITER: Katsuhiro Otomo
ARTIST: Katsuhiro Otomo
Leo DiCaprio movie news and boom, tons of copies sold this week in the $50-60 range.  Prior to this news, there were very few sales and VF copies were only in the $7 range.

9 Avengers #196

WRITER: David Michelinie
ARTIST: George Perez
Black Widow villain and interest switched from the Ultimate Comics #26 last week to this classic.  All time highs are being set where a 9.6 will now run you $400+, 9.4's $325+ and 9.8's have topped $1k.

10 Uncle Scrooge (Vol. 2) #43 Paolo Mottura 1:10 Variant

WRITER: Vito Stabile & Carlo Panaro
ARTIST: Francesco Guerrini & Paolo Campinoti
Not much to say here other than this one is selling for $25-30.  Low print run is the only culprit that I can see at this point.

Spawn #216

WRITER: Will Carlton
ARTIST: Szymon Kudranski & Todd McFarlane
Ok, so I'm super confused.  A raw sold on 3/12 for $50, on 3/17 a graded 9.8 sold for $37?  This week raws are approaching and exceeding $100?  Sick cover by the way.

Web of Evil #5

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Jack Cole
A raw GD copy sold on Heritage for $1260.  Then a graded GD+ 2.5 sold on eBay for $1800!  Classic cover with very few confirmed sales before these (trimmed copy in 2017).  Oh, OSPG price in this grade is about $75–thanks Overstreet, you were THIS close on this book…
