HOT 10 COMICS

1 Batman (Vol. 3) #77

WRITER: Tom King
ARTIST: Tony S. Daniel
Death stories generally don’t hold up long term and with it being Batman, and heavily printed, I’m surprised this one is in the $20 range.  I will say that I’m glad to see a little DC buzz as everything recently has been super Marvel-centric (and just as a caveat, this list was compiled prior to any D23 announcements).

2 Venom: First Host #3 2nd Print Variant

WRITER: Mike Costa
ARTIST: Mark Bagley
1st appearance of Sleeper has moved from cover price last week to $30+ this week.  Would love to get everyone’s opinions on this Spidey/MCU news this week. Comment down below and there may be a nice giveaway if we get a decent response.

3 House of X #2 Yasmine Putri Variant

WRITER: Jonathan Hickman
ARTIST: Pepe Larraz
Like it’s connecting brother last week, this one has jumped considerably, up to around $50 and the connecting sets are approaching $100???  What is going on here?

4 Spawn #299 Boston Con Francesco Mattina Variant /500

WRITER: Todd McFarlane
ARTIST: Jason Shawn Alexander
Would have been higher on the list if it had held its lofty $350 initial sales.  It couldn’t, but $225 still isn’t bad for this con exclusive from last weekend

5 Venom: Lethal Protector #4

WRITER: David Michelinie
ARTIST: Ron Lim
Scream’s 1st appearance was selling around $10.  Renewed interest because of Absolute Carnage (man do I love the Allred/Edvard Munch painting homage variant) has it now up to $20-25 raw.

6 Fantastic Four #4

WRITER: Stan Lee
ARTIST: Jack Kirby
Ok, not really Namor’s 1st (but who’s buying a Motion Picture #1–even if they could find it).  Either way, this 1st SA is hitting record highs due to Namor spec. 7.5=$7250; 6.5-$6750, even a 3.0 will run you almost $2000.  I’m not really sold on this tbh…

7 Dead End Kids #2

WRITER: Frank Gogol
ARTIST: Nenad Cvitcanin
Weird, this issue dropped this week and is selling at or above #1 in the $20 range?

Check Availability

8 Supergirl (Vol. 6) #33 Recalled

WRITER: Marc Andreyko
ARTIST: Eduardo Pansica
Still selling strong, up to $50.  Cannot discount FOMO. It has even infiltrated fast food with people waiting an hour to get a Popeye’s chicken sandwich?

9 Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety #1 Clayton Crain 1:100 ‘Virgin' Variant

WRITER: Clay Chapman
ARTIST: Brian Level
Holding at the #9 spot it held last week, the price on this one has gone up about 25% to around $140.  While that doesn’t sound like a huge price bump, it’s a book that is bucking the normal trend of these losing value the week after release.

10 Psycho List #1

WRITER: Kevin Grevioux
ARTIST: Jonathan Lau
Generally selling in the $15 range from tiny Blackbox Comics the day after release.  A lot of these super micro indies get lost a couple weeks after release and some go higher in value.  Let’s see what happens to this one.

Venom (Vol. 4) #9

WRITER: Donny Cates
ARTIST: Ryan Stegman
Hmmm…i’d be more apt to look at #7, but anyways, this one is selling a lot of copies in the $20 range

Classic Comics #32

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Matt Baker
Good ‘ol Matt Baker returns with another fantastic cover.  $1200 9.0 sale this week which is about 3X guide. Only 1 copy graded higher (a 9.4)

    Nice List! BOLO for newest wave of Walmart 3-Packs. Some areas have rare 2nd+ prints of current runs inside, just got 2 of those Venom #3 2nd prints out of them last week! Seems they are placing issues that dont sell which ends up being later printings

    • manbat

      Do these packs have the 2nd prints on top or in the middle?

      • Avatar

        In the middle. They seem to be the 2nd wave of the Black Cat/Thanos etc. I found the 2nds in Virginia on vacation and bought 8, but when I got back home to PA I bought a few and they were just common 1st prints so I believe it may be only in certain areas. I didn’t find a way to differentiate between the 2 but I’m sure all you’d have to do is buy 1 and if there is no 2nd+ prints in it, they are the 1st wave with commons since every one I bought in VA had a 2nd+ print in it.

          The only problem is they are usually beat to hell from handling. The 2 Venom #3 2nds I got are no better than 9.2s even from being on the inside

            I’m a little behind on current issue spec. These were actually my 1st semi new issues I’ve bought in years. Are these Venom #3 2nds worth flipping or hold?

  • Avatar

    I’ve a question guys. Is that Winter Soldier 1 that was an error with pages of Venom 9 of any value? Thanks and hope I win something from this too!

  • Avatar

    Both Namor and Moon Knight are the two biggest sucker plays of the moment.

  • amazingdylman

    While his first appearance is issue 3, I think the first cover appearance of Sleeper is actually issue 4, which came out before the second printing.

    Spiderman can do whatever a spider can. So I’m not worried.

  • Avatar

    I remember reading First Host and really digging Sleeper.

    As far as designs go, Sleeper looks cool and bad ass at the same time.

    I wouldn’t t have purchased that #3 2nd if I really didn’t like Sleeper so this news is cool.

    “… connecting sets are approaching $100??? What is going on here? ”
    They are just cool covers! It also makes sense that the stories interconnect.

  • Avatar

    Man, some people have really deep pockets. Not hating, just wish my pockets were a bit deeper 🙁

    So with the Sleeper jump… What does that mean for Venom #165?

    It is considered the Sleeper symbiote full 1st no?

    New TOP TEN video coming out this week?

  • Avatar

    Actually Venom 165 just has the baby symbiote(wrongly said to be aborted) in it so it technically doesn’t become Sleeper until first host 3

  • Avatar

    Deep down I feel like they will work something out to get Spidey back in the MCU, they have years. Even if never works out maybe Sony will give us a live action movie with the spiderverse characters. Plus the MCU movies are going cosmic while it seems the Streaming series are gonna deal with the planetary-ish (dimensional/realms) characters, & we won’t miss Spidey in the cosmic landscape.

  • Gary Nusser

    The Venom 165 issue is the first appearance. (Also to be clear here it isn’t wrongly said to be a stillbirth- that is done in order to stop anyone from coming to look for it.) If you are looking at the first true form of Sleeper than that is issue 3 but that isn’t even really the first true Sleeper as a character as I would argue that is when it lobotomizes Tel-Kar and reserves all his knowledge and experience. anyway, the market is the market and as I always say, grab all relevant issues early until it makes up its mind.

  • Avatar

    Venom and spiderman could now be In the same universe and all those symbiotes could start making the rounds in the Sony movies. I don’t spec much on venom books but seems like with Sony making a good movies I might have to start. Either way seems like venom books are heating up and still no teaser for the sequel

  • Avatar

    I think Sony pulled Spidey out of the Disney/Marvel Studios deal for is the direction of Phase 4. They probably don’t see him currently fitting in to those plans and it would be Sony’s benefit to completely control his own universe of films for now. There’s good and bad to this scenario. Without Marvel Studio’s the films may lack some creativeness and direction. Sony still has to prove themselves on making a great Spider-Man film. On the other hand this could bring the Symbiotes into the Spider-Man universe.
    If Marvel Studio’s ever uses Namor it will probably be similar to way they used the Hulk. Namor is a great character and one of Marvel’s first. It would be very disappointing if they can’t figure out a way to utilize him down the road.
