HOT 10 COMICS

1 Spider-Girl #59

WRITER: Tom DeFalco
ARTIST: Ron Frenz
The prices are kind of all over the place as people keep finding this in the dollar bins and taking whatever they can get–which is anywhere from $40-80 at the moment.  Baby 1st appearances don’t really do it for me, but what do I know.

2 Star Wars Age of Resistance: Rey #1 Joe Quesada 1:50 Variant

WRITER: Tom Taylor
ARTIST: Ramon Rosanas
$100+.  Same formula, different SW book.  Will Rey have enough impact to come back for episodes after this Trilogy?

3 What If… (1989) #4

WRITER: Danny Fingeroth
ARTIST: Mark Bagley
It doesn’t matter if you believe Donny Cates’ assertion that there can’t be a 1st appearance in a What If book.  The fact is, this went from a less than $5 book to a $15-25 book, with tons of sales, this week. For those who do believe this is the first ‘Venom-Hulk’, does that really scream ‘key’ to you anyway?

4 Batman: The Long Halloween #1

WRITER: Jeph Loeb
ARTIST: Tim Sale
It appears that raw NM copies are in the $50 range, up from about $25-30 before news that the next Batman movie will follow this storyline.  9.8’s are also back up to around $250.

5 Spider-Men II #1 Julian Totino Tedesco 1:50 Variant

WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis
ARTIST: Sara Pichelli
So this Evil Miles is a thing now and this one is flying high at the moment at $150 raw and over $400 for a 9.8.  The regular cover is getting $20 as well.

Continuing to rise, raws are now around $150, up from $100 and even a 9.4 sold for $325 this week, up from around $175 the week before.

7 House/Powers of X

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Various
It was getting repetitive just including the connecting covers on the list.  The fact is, all issues of these mini’s are selling. Definitely the cover A’s and connecting variants as well as some of the other random variants.  I’m definitely going to have to sit and take the time to read this series so I can see what all this buzz is about.

8 Captain Marvel (2001) #21

WRITER: Peter David
ARTIST: Chrischross
There is a big web of speculation for the 1st appearance here of Big Mother.  I won't get into the weeds, but if you have to try this hard to ‘make' speculation, it's probably not worth it…In any case, this dollar bin book is up to $20.

9 Spawn #221

WRITER: Todd McFarlane
ARTIST: Szymon Kudranski
Rising a big rollercoaster in pricing…Last month it was a $50 book, now sales are in the $80-90 range.

10 Uncanny X-Men (2013) #1 Gabriele Dell ‘Otto 1:50 Variant

WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis
ARTIST: Chris Bachalo
Selling for $30 doesn’t seem hot for a 1:50 variant, until you realize that this was only worth half, or less, just a week ago.  But let’s be honest, if you are investing in Gold Balls, well….

Absolute Carnage #3 Pepe Larraz Variant

WRITER: Donny Cates
ARTIST: Ryan Stegman
$10-15. Moderate movement for this one that was released this week.

Amazing-Man Comics #22

WRITER: Various
ARTIST: Paul Gustavson (cover)
A 1.5 detached copy sold this week for $12k following up a $19k 3.0 detached copy last month.  I wonder what that 9.0 copy that sold 15 years ago for $5k would go for now?

      Since Tank Girl has been steadily rising, what do you think about some other independent first appearances such as Albedo 2, Cerebus 1, and Fantasy Quarterly #1 (First Elf quest). Do you think those are undervalued/overvalued?

      Will we ever get an Elf quest movie? It’s crazy you can pick up at VF copy for less than 100 dollars. There is a pretty rabid fan base but I feel like FQ 1 will spike if that IP is ever picked up by a major studio.

        Cerebus is 100% a key book as the first issue of a title that truly changed English language comics in a way few other books ever have. That being said, given its content, investing in it is probably not the best idea.

    Gold balls could be good if he doesn’t get killed. He’s kinda important now

    Ok here’s a question, Why is the mc2 Benjamin parker who makes his first as a baby and via cameo selling like this?

    Benjamin Parker appears first, as a teen in The Last Avengers Story 2.

    He makes his only appearance as a kid elsewhere ( The MC2 Benjamin Parker never appears as a kid, only as a baby )

    All I’m saying is there are a lot of baby books that are now undervalued.

    Damn. I thought I had one of those UXM#1 variants. Was gonna go on ebay and undercut everyone’s gold balls. Guess I sold it for $4 and a bowl of chili a while back.

    If that what if 4 is truly pumping, shouldn’t incredible hulk 4 variant also be getting the same treatment? It has a super cool venom possessing hulk cover

    Glad a Spider-Man exists in his many forms … where would the spec world be without variations of og characters ?

    I think it’s great that HOX/POX continues to make the hot list, it’s a book that’s on the list for its great story, and not because it’s the the first appearance of a baby, a hot cover, or associated with a movie rumor.

    I was really hoping to Voltron: A Legend Forged #1 on here, just for bragging rights. I’ve always been a little jealous who’ve chimed in with “That was my sale.”

  • Avatar

    hmmmm, several books spotlighted by different articles from this webpage…massive sales of said books…now said books are in the “top 10″…do I see a pattern of market manipulation here?? Idk, but it seems to be a trend, a book is featured in an article like true firsts, or dollar bin digging, within a week said book is now in the top 10. Either you guys have a huge following and people base their purchases off whatever books you spotlight or it’s a HUGE coincidence, just pointing out the obvious I suppose

      A) spec news breaks during the week
      B) people buy into it
      C) CBSI catches wind and writes articles about it
      D) more people buy into it
      E) Hot 10 summarizes the sales for the week
      F) even more people buy into it
      It’s pretty simple to grasp duh. It’s a sad state that the speculation market is almost 100% a reactionary one but that’s not going to change. You’re either early into the news or late. Now if the news originated from CBSI and articles were written to pump it up, that’s where there would be some issues.

    Spider-Girl #59…not even the same Ben Parker. Different universe, different timeline. smh

    • Topher

      Yea all the Bens are unrelated which makes me think the first appearance of Pete’s son Benjamin is the way to go.

      • Avatar

        If they are all unrelated why would any of them be important? None of them are the same character so why care – it is like Batman Son of The Demon and Damian. This is all posters on different boards/groups pumping whatever books they happen to have in their possession.

        • Topher

          If he wasn’t called Benjamin no one would care. He is though.

          • Avatar

            Actually, he is called Ben throughout Spider-Man #1. Signs his name as Ben and in a nightmare is called Benny by his mother. Nowhere in this book is he called Benjamin or Benjy as he is named in in Spider-Girl #59. I agree that this is a different timeline/different Earth. This Ben doesn’t have an older sister, so no Mayday Parker in this timeline. I mean if I can find some SG #59s in dollar bins I would be selling them to speculator who have FOMO too.

    So it seems like all these low print high ratio Star Wars variants are massive hits. I was able to pick it up for less than ratio. Should I hold and wait till it’s a ghost online or sell with the hype being high on the book? Also what ever happened to the wizard rewind articles

    What’s the deal with Big Mother????
