Top 150 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during LATE OCTOBER 2013

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

HotComics2013LateOctoberLogo

This list is updated every 2 weeks.  This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market.   I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month.     This list focuses on all regular edition covers.  (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs).   If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know.  Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold releases of the last few years online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price.  However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales.  Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

MARKET REPORT:

#1 AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #1 (ARCHIE 2013) 4 regular covers and 52 variant exclusive store covers made this the hottest new comic released recently and many sales as high as 3x guide for certain covers sold individually.

#2 LIFE WITH ARCHIE #23 (ARCHIE 2012) There are 2 covers and the 2nd cover is a horror theme and the first appearance on cover only of the “Afterlife With Archie” zombie theme which is now an ongoing series.  2nd cover hit $30.00 a year after release.

#3 FOX #1 (ARCHIE / RED CIRCLE 2013) New series with 4 different regular covers.   Some selling as high as $12.00 each in first week. Fiona Staples artist of Saga did one of the 4 covers.   In late October 2013 Archie comics for the first time possibly ever held down the top 3 spots of hottest new sold out comics.

#4 SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20 VARIANT (MARVEL 2013)  Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly a hot issue climbing in value and selling way more than expected for the print run.  Currently at about $70.00 instead of an estimated $25.00 for a 1:50 variant.

#5 WILDWORK #1 (ANTARCTIC PRESS 2013) New mini-series based on Dracula in the old west by Eric Red and Ben Dunn.  Very small print run and most retailers did not even order copies.   Sold copies up to $20.00 within first week and more online speculator market reports hype this up as the #1 best pick at the moment.

#6 LETTER 44 (ONI 2013)  #1 came out as a $1.00 book and yet early reviews were so great that the book sold out and now selling at $6.00

#7 TRILLIUM (DC VERTIGO 2013)  Rave reviews helped sell out this high print run Vertigo title and sell above guide online even before Diamond was sold out.    Now copies at $10.00

#8 DOCTOR WHO PRISONER OF TIME #1-10   Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly a hot issue climbing in value and selling way more than expected for the print run.  Currently the 1:25 photo cover sells each month on average at about $70.00 instead of an estimated $15.00 for a 1:25 variant.

#9 GHOST PROJEKT #1 (ONI 2010)  It was announced about Sept 22nd 2013 that the show was optioned for NBC tv series and the 3 year old title became super hot with #1 selling as high as $35.00 each.  It has now cooled off and settled more around $15.00

#10 CATWOMAN #23 (DC 2013) 1st appearance of Joker’s Daughter appears in the last page and is a prelude to her big appearance coming up soon in the 3D DC Villain take over month.   Prices hit $13.00 the day of release.

#11 DEATH SENTENCE (TITAN 2013) New series in Oct 2013 sold out instantly and selling a bit above cover.
#12 HENRY AND GLENN FOREVER AND EVER  (2013)  #1 and #2 are small digest sized indie comics in black and white.  Very small print runs and the stories are making fun of real life 1980′s hard rock stars Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins of Black Flag.   They appear to be gay lovers in the story.  Rock stars Hall and Oates also appear in the series as their satanic worshiping neighbors.  Series appeals to non-comic fans and most sellers getting a bit above cover.

#13 OUTLIERS #1 (2013) Indie comic self published with financing.  Highest ratings online for story and art.  Super small print run.  More and more hype every week and a print run of less than 1800 copies kept prices continually rising up and currently at $50.00.  We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.   Strong popularity kept prices high on this one after 2 months.

#14 HALLOWEEN FEST 2013 – Just like Free Comic Book Day, there is an annual Halloween free comic book day on Halloween each year and this year there were 22 giveaway promo comics.   Individually most sold instantly at a high price of $5.00 each and a My Little Pony hit $7.00 week of release.   Batman, Skyward, Thor, Sonic, Sesame Street, Zombies, Ben 10, Spider-man are some of the titles this year.

#15 MYTHOPOLIS #1 (ARRDEN 2013) #1 small print publisher printed 4 regular covers very limited.  Comic was delayed as the early variant covers came out 6 months ahead of time and the regular #1 shipped 3 months past original scheduling date.  Copies in first week of release sold as high as $20.00 each for regular cover #1A.     We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.

#16 CHRONOS COMMANDOS #1 (TITAN 2013) Small print run small publisher instant sell out – Both issues #1 and #2 have sold as high as $12.00 each.  Neither issue even charted on the monthly Top 300 Diamond sales.   Nazi soldiers and dinosaurs !!  We helped bring awareness to this great comic before release date.

#18 STEAM ENGINES OF OZ #1 (ARCANA STUDIOS 2013) Small publisher and print run – another Wizard of Oz inspired series selling way above cover after a month.  Become hot 6 weeks after release.

#21 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #4 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #4 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.       Week Four   Joker’s Daughter at $110.00    Doomsday at $20   Black Adam at $20   Killer Croc at $13   First Born at $13   Man-Bat at $13   Bane at $12   Sinestro at $12   Secret Society at $12   Ocean Master at $12   Parasite at $11.   Joker’s Daughter is without the single most hyped up and hottest comic of the entire year and may have set world record prices for a pre-sale of a new release as collectors were paying up to $110.00 each for a copy of this book just to make sure they got one.   That is paying almost 40x cover price before it even came out.   Very few customers got a copy unless they were a regular file customer for Batman: The Dark Knight series.  It was the hottest of all the 3D covers and the hottest comic of the entire year.   However the downside I predicted is that prices could only come down and that has already started to happen.

#22 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #3 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #3 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.      Week Three   Clayface at $20   Dial E at $46    Eclipso at $20   Deathstroke at $25   The Rogues at $15    Cheetah at $14     Penguin at $13    Ra’s Al Ghul at $13     Arcane at $13    Black Hand at $12   Scarecrow at $12    Shadow Thief at $12   Lex Luthor at $11    H’el at $7

#23 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #2 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #2 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.  Week Two   Harley Quinn at $36   Mr Freeze at $31    Lobo at $31   Riddler at $20.50   Reverse Flash at $20   Court Of Owls at $18   Killer Frost at $17.50   Solomon Grundy at $13   Trigon at $13   Black Manta for $12   Mongul at $12   Brainiac at $10.50    Zod at $10

#24 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #1 (DC 2013)   13 different 3D covers came out in week #1 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.   Week One   Forever Evil #1 – $280 (1 per store variant cover).  Darkseid for $31  Poison Ivy for $27   Ventriloquist for $26.50    Joker for $25     Count Vertigo at $20    Creeper at $20     Deadshot at $16.50     Two-Face at $15     Relic at $14    Bizarro at $13.50     Grodd at $13    Desaad at $13    Cyborg Superman at $10

#25 FARLAINE THE GOBLIN #1 (STUDIO FARLAINE 2013)  New small print publisher – possibly smallest distributed comic of the year with print run of only 1350.   Two versions of #1 exist as an early promo copy was sent out only to retailers with a print run of only 250 copies.  Both versions sold out before release date at Diamond.   Copies hit a high of $40.00 within first week of release.  We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.   Prices cooled down after a few weeks.

#26 DAY MEN #1 (BOOM 2013) New ongoing series – #1 sold out instantly – kept rising during early August and then new movie news and the world went nuts for this book.  I received long distance calls for this book and so did other local comic shops as people wanted to buy this book in major multiples.  Hit a high of $20.00 and then online got flooded with too many copies and prices settled now at $9.00.

#27 ZOMBIE ANNIHILATION (SILVER PHOENIX 2013) #1 new Kickstarter small print book selling for double cover and some sellers asking 15x cover.

#28 SAGA #1-12    #1 still super hot at about $80 down from peak of $100 – all issues in demand even with high print runs.  #12 was hot for a moment when banned by Apple.  Print runs have gone up the last 5 issues in a row.  #12 has a much larger print run than #1. After The Walking Dead sensation Saga is always Image’s best selling title.

#29 BATMAN #1 5 7 9 – sold out issues averaging $20-$30 each and #1 sells for $50.00.  Complete sets of #1-10 bring $150.00.  Batman is the #1 selling regular monthly comic book these days and it is the most valuable “complete set” of all current titles.
#30 SKYWARD #0-3 (2010) Originally a self published mini series in 2010. (3 years before the new ongoing series).  Jeremy Dale self-published the first three issues a few years ago.

#31 STEAM WARS (ANTARCTIC PRESS 2013)  Unique new series done in steampunk style but tells a new variation of the George Lucas Star Wars movie storyline featuring characters and storyline and artwork that is definitely borrowed and parodies from the original sci-fi movie.   Small print and demand growing for #1 and #2.    #1 did not even make Top 300 chart with sales less than 2400.

#33 CONSTANTINE #1 (DC 2013)  1st print sold out in the first month but took about 6 months to sell above cover.  Some sales at $7.00 for this new Hellblazer inspired series.   New TV show reports could drive this one up.

#34 THE WALKING DEAD (Image) #108 1st app Ezekiel and #110 origin and battle of Ezekiel with Michonne.  All back issues #1-110 are sold out and bring above cover prices.  #92 and #93 extremely hot at  $30.00 each.   Retailers upped their orders yet again starting with #109 onwards after the sellout of #108.  This is the highest print runs have ever been (not counting #100).

#35 SKYWARD #1-4 (ACTION LAB ENTERTAINMENT 2013) Originally a one-shot in 2010.  Summer 2013 a new ongoing series and all ages friendly from small publisher sold out instantly.  Many copies sold between $20 and $25 online.  I helped publicize this book online myself helping it achieve higher prices.   #1 and #2 currently sell about $8.00 each.   We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.

#36 DEXTER (MARVEL 2013) #1 and #2 sold out with small print run based on the violent TV show.  Immediate increases on #1.

#37 THE OTHER DEAD (IDW 2013) #1 of the regular and subscription covers sold as sets as high as $18.00 for the pair.  The series was delayed in stores potentially due to the controversial 1:10 variant cover featuring President Obama with machine guns which sold way above a typical variant price hitting $40.00

#38 THE MOCKING DEAD #1 (2013) New release comic that sold out instantly and went to 2nd print.  Early sales online were all over the place with sales anywhere from $4 to $40 for the subscription cover.  Currently a bit above cover for the regular cover and the subscription about $8.00

#39 INJUSTICE GODS AMONG US (DC) – the hottest DC title of 2013 with small print runs and 3rd prints selling out.  Peaked in May at $85.00 for set of #1-4      Many sellers with reprint sets that also sell well.   #1 2nd printing hit $12.00   #1 $40 #2 $25 #3 $8 #4 $5 #5-6 $4.   I predicted this could be a hit when I saw the initial print run numbers so low and yet featuring major characters Batman,  Joker, Superman, Wonder Woman etc.   Print runs peaked with #6 and are now leveling out.

#42 TODD THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH (Image) #1 hit high of $20 immediately in January week of release and then settled down.    Smaller print run.  Mini-series #1-4 is sold out and will become ongoing soon from Image with #5 coming out in a month.  News of a new tv/movie reported on July 13th made the #1 a super hot comic instantly with sales as high as $60 in July but then cooled down again.  #1 and #2 have a 2nd print which are both rarer typically in print run than the originals.

#43 WATSON AND HOLMES (NEW PARADIGM 2013) Small print run of 3,800 copies between 2 regular covers sold out instantly and brought sales of up to $50.00 each in first week and then cooled off.   Print run was so small that it did not even rank in the Top 300 of the month.  Currently #1 sells at above $10 and #2 sells at $7.00.   We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.
#44 EAST OF WEST (Image) #1 Hot as a pre-seller and now sells up to $12.00.   4th printing already and sets of #1-4 sell really well.  This is a rare modern example of a comic with a huge print run that still sells out due to popularity and goes to reprints on every issue.  It’s the “2013″ version of Saga in terms of popularity.  All 5 issues have gone to 2nd prints.

#45 PETER PANZERFAUST (Image) #1-9 prices peaked in March.  #8 and #9 really hot but less demand for #4-6.  One season of the TV series seems guaranteed.   #1 hit high of $300 now around $200.00   Current prices #2 $60 / #3 $20 / #4-7 $10 each / #8 $20 / #9 $20.  Print runs for #6 7 8 were so low they did not even chart during the month.  Note the print run increaes for #10 and then #11.  #11 is the most common issue and now print runs are leveling back down again.

#58 BODIE TROLL (RED 5 COMICS 2013) #1 very small print run selling above cover instantly

#59 THINK TANK (Image) #1-5.  #1 sold out immediately and no one seems to have a copy.  2nd printings also has very small print run.  #1 1st in the $20 range.   News of a new movie broke this week which might push prices up.

#60 UBER #0-1-2-3   Sold out printings instantly.  Originaly I felt this title was being speculated on too heavily but many sales above cover have proven the demand for this series.   I personally believe this is the single best looking comic of 2013 with glossy paper and amazing colors and artwork.  Some amazing variant covers make it a big job to collect every cover version of each issue.   The first issue was #0 and not #1.  #0 is the rare ones to find.  #0 has a 2nd printing called “enhanced edition”.   Print runs on each individual cover are very low.  There are 4 regular covers of each issue so when you take the worldwide print runs you have to divide it by 4 to get the real print run of each cover.  This makes it more obvious how rare each individual cover is.  In fact there are only about 2,700 copies of each cover of the first issue #0.   Diamond monthly rankings for each issue and the combined print run of all the covers

#61 THE SIXTH GUN (Oni) – All 31 issues sold out – many not even on ebay and low print runs.  Sold a #1 for $250 in Mid April.  #1 now at $90.00.   Prices have dropped by about 70% since their peak from April 2013 when the news of the potential TV show was at its highest hype.   Still some of the rarest comics to collect will keep prices and sales up on this title.  The image speculating boom peaked by April 2013 and orders were raised drastically on issues #30-32 which were the highest since issue #2 three years earlier.

#62 NUMBERCRUNCHER #1 (TITAN 2013) New miniseries from small publisher sold out instantly – nobody has copies for sale.

Did not even chart on the monthly Top 300.   High sale of $13.00.   #3 sold out even before day of release.

#63 THE LAST OF US (DARK HORSE) – 4 issue mini-series all issues instant sellouts and tie-in to video game.  All issues are sold out and Diamond has sold out of #4 a month before its release.  Currently all 3 1st print issues are selling for on average $23.00 EACH !  #3 hit a high of $41.00 the week of release.  Print runs of issues #1-3 are very low.   Print run of #4 jumped way up and is a common book.  Complete set of 4 issues hit high of $160.00 in early July.    I sold a few sets at $100.00.  Only #1 has had a reprint so far and that 2nd printing might be so rare that it did not chart which means likely a print run of less than 3,000 copies.   Reprints were scheduled by Dark Horse for #1-3 and then cancelled but now just came out.  Prices dropped down after the series was done.

#71 SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1-10 every issue seems to sell out at retail and gets a 2nd printing but not going up in value due to large print runs.  Peter Parker ghost gone in #9 – series might last longer than originally expected.  Readers very happy with this series.

#72 AMAZING SPIDERMAN #700 DITKO VARIANT (MARVEL 2012) Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly was hotter than normal.  It came out in December 2012 featuring the death of Peter Parker.  But this rare variant was a 1:200 ratio which usually are worth about $100.00 but by January this comic hit a high peak of $1200.00 making it a record high sales price for any new comic in 2013.

Smallest print run DC and Marvel comics 2013

Smallest print run DC and Marvel comics for June and July 2013

RarestDCMarvel201307

You can look at this from 2 points of view.

These are either the least popular titles published monthly by the “big 2”.

Or you can look it as an opportunity to hunt out the rarest new comics from the “big 2”.

3 DC comics have print runs under 10,000 – this is smaller print runs than even #1 issues from some of the small time publishers these days.      Arrow ties into a current TV show so sales are surprisingly very low.  Tom Strong #1 debuts with possibly the smallest print run of a DC #1 ever in history!!

Marvel’s bottom selling titles fair just a little better than DC.  Emerald City Of Oz #1 based on Wizard of Oz came in with a very small print run of only 13,000 for a new #1 based on a popular franchise.   Possibly more surprising is Wolverine had a new one-shot #1 issue with a print run of only 15,000 and only ranked as #155 best selling comic of July 2013.   More from popular characters Wolverine and Gambit rank surprisingly low.

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during LATE AUGUST 2013

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during LATE AUGUST 2013

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

HotComics2013LateAugustLogo

This list is updated every 2 weeks.  This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market.   I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month.     This list focuses on all regular edition covers.  (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs).   If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know.  Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold releases of the last few years online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price.  However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales.  Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

#1 OUTLIERS #1 (2013) Indie comic self published with financing.  Highest ratings online for story and art.  Super small print run.  More and more hype every week and a print run of less than 1800 copies kept prices continually rising up and currently at $50.00.  We hyped this book first and helped bring the book mainstream attention for this amazing book.

#2 DAY MEN #1 (BOOM 2013) New ongoing series – #1 sold out instantly – kept rising during early August and then new movie news and the world went nuts for this book.  I received long distance calls for this book and so did other local comic shops as people wanted to buy this book in major multiples.  Hit a high of $20.00 and then online got flooded with too many copies and prices settled at  $10.00.

#3 CATWOMAN #23 (DC 2013) 1st appearance of Joker’s Daughter appears in the last page and is a prelude to her big appearance coming up soon in the 3D DC Villain take over month.   Prices hit $13.00 the day of release.

 #4 CLONE (IMAGE 2012) On July 15th 2013 it was announced that the new TV series was official and that drove up prices on #1 even though it has a larger print run over 23,000.   Diamond still had copies in warehouse up to this news announcement and then sold its last 1,000 copies within days.   #1 currently at $10.00 – all issues selling better now and sold out at Diamond. Note how the print run has dropped drastically.  Issue #1 has almost 500% the print run of #9.

#5 TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #1 (DC 2013) New mini-series inspiring the Trinity DC crossover storyline for summer 2013 sold out and quickly went to 2nd printing and copies selling as high as $11.00 for regular edition.

#6 WILD BLUE YONDER (IDW) #1 and #2 both sold out instantly 2013 – brand new release sold out instantly and regular cover bringing above cover quickly.

184, Wild Blue Yonder, 1, $3.99, IDW, 10,840

#7 THE LAST OF US (DARK HORSE) – 4 issue mini-series all issues instant sellouts and tie-in to video game.  All issues are sold out and Diamond has sold out of #4 a month before its release.  Currently all 3 1st print issues are selling for on average $23.00 EACH !  #3 hit a high of $41.00 the week of release.  Print runs of issues #1-3 are very low.   Print run of #4 jumped way up and is a common book.  Complete set of 4 issues hit high of $160.00 in early July.    I sold a few sets at $100.00.  Only #1 has had a reprint so far and that 2nd printing might be so rare that it did not chart which means likely a print run of less than 3,000 copies.   Reprints were scheduled by Dark Horse for #1-3 and then cancelled but now just came out.

Last of Us American Dreams, 1, $3.99, Dark Horse, 6,012
Last of Us American Dreams, 2, $3.99, Dark Horse, 4,991

#8 SKYWARD #1 (ACTION LAB ENTERTAINMENT 2013) Originally a one-shot in 2010.  Summer 2013 a new ongoing series and all ages friendly from small publisher sold out instantly.  Many copies sold between $20 and $25 online.  I helped publicize this book online myself helping it achieve higher prices.
#9 WATSON AND HOLMES (NEW PARADIGM 2013) Small print run of 3,800 copies between 2 regular covers sold out instantly and brought sales of up to $50.00 each in first week and then cooled off.   Print run was so small that it did not even rank in the Top 300 of the month.  Currently #1 sells at above $10 and #2 sells at $7.00

#10 X-FILES SEASON 10 #1 and #2 both sold out instantly (IDW) #1 2013 – brand new release sold out instantly and regular cover bringing a bit above cover constantly.

94, XFiles Season 10, 1, $3.99, IDW, 24,270

#11 INJUSTICE GODS AMONG US (DC) – the hottest DC title of 2013 with small print runs and 3rd prints selling out.  Peaked in May at $85.00 for set of #1-4      Many sellers with reprint sets that also sell well.   #1 2nd printing hit $12.00   #1 $40 #2 $25 #3 $8 #4 $5 #5-6 $4.   I predicted this could be a hit when I saw the initial print run numbers so low and yet featuring major characters Batman,  Joker, Superman, Wonder Woman etc.   Print runs peaked with #6 and are now leveling out.

#12 GRIMM FAIRY TALES: OZ (ZENESCOPE ENTERTAINMENT 2013) #1 has 5 regular covers – most sellers including myself sold these as sets.  Selling for cover until it was reported they were sold out and then sets selling for double cover as of Aug 15th.

#13 STEAM WARS (ANTARCTIC PRESS 2013)  Unique new series done in steampunk style but tells a new variation of the George Lucas Star Wars movie storyline featuring characters and storyline and artwork that is definitely borrowed and parodies from the original sci-fi movie.   Small print and demand growing for #1 and #2.    #1 did not even make Top 300 chart with sales less than 2400.

362, Steam Wars, 1, $3.99, Antarctic, 2,399

#14 IT CAME #1 (2013) Small print mini series issue – sci-fi oriented – Very few retailers ordered it – hit $12.00.

#15 DEXTER (MARVEL 2013) #1 and #2 sold out with small print run based on the violent TV show.  Immediate increases on #1.
#16 TODD THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH (Image) #1 hit high of $20 immediately in January week of release and then settled down.    Smaller print run.  Mini-series #1-4 is sold out and will become ongoing soon from Image with #5 coming out in a month.  News of a new tv/movie reported on July 13th made the #1 a super hot comic instantly with sales as high as $60 in July but then cooled down again.  #1 and #2 have a 2nd print which are both rarer typically in print run than the originals.

#18 EAST OF WEST (Image) #1 Hot as a pre-seller and now sells up to $12.00.   4th printing already and sets of #1-4 sell really well.  This is a rare modern example of a comic with a huge print run that still sells out due to popularity and goes to reprints on every issue.  It’s the “2013″ version of Saga in terms of popularity.  All 5 issues have gone to 2nd prints.

#33 UBER #0-1-2-3   Sold out printings instantly.  Originaly I felt this title was being speculated on too heavily but many sales above cover have proven the demand for this series.   I personally believe this is the single best looking comic of 2013 with glossy paper and amazing colors and artwork.  Some amazing variant covers make it a big job to collect every cover version of each issue.   The first issue was #0 and not #1.  #0 is the rare ones to find.  #0 has a 2nd printing called “enhanced edition”.   Print runs on each individual cover are very low.  There are 4 regular covers of each issue so when you take the worldwide print runs you have to divide it by 4 to get the real print run of each cover.  This makes it more obvious how rare each individual cover is.  In fact there are only about 2,700 copies of each cover of the first issue #0.   Diamond monthly rankings for each issue and the combined print run of all the covers

#34 THE SIXTH GUN (Oni) – All 31 issues sold out – many not even on ebay and low print runs.  Sold a #1 for $250 in Mid April.  #1 now at $90.00.   Prices have dropped by about 70% since their peak from April 2013 when the news of the potential TV show was at its highest hype.   Still some of the rarest comics to collect will keep prices and sales up on this title.  The image speculating boom peaked by April 2013 and orders were raised drastically on issues #30-32 which were the highest since issue #2 three years earlier.

SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for September 4 2013 Release Week

Support new comics !

This column is here to help promote brand new comic book series beginning with a #1 issue.

Pictured are this weeks new comic series selling out the fastest !

NewComics20130904

This weekly article will also take a close look at how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.

This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!

Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !

Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !

Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores – if even 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold !

So any comics on the list that still have copies left I guarantee are going to eventually all sell out.

Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled on August 31 2013 (4 days BEFORE release date)!

Most Valuable ACG – AMERICAN COMICS GROUP published each year

Key investment comics and historically important issues

These are the 3 most valuable ACG – AMERICAN COMICS GROUP comic books published in every year

(Overstreet 2013 guide NM prices)

ACGMostValuable1948

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things. 

First of all it does truly highlight the major key books of every year.  It also shows quickly which titles seems to pop up the most often and are truly the most expensive series to collect.  Some titles are just more collected than others and bring higher $$ amounts even to non-key issues in a run. 

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are for their age a better investment. This can always be seen with most books from the 1950’s which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

American Comics Group (ACG) is an American comic book publisher from 1943 to 1967 that published the medium’s first ongoing horror-comicstitle, Adventures into the Unknown. ACG’s best-known character was the 1960s satirical-humor hero Herbie Popnecker, who starred for a time inForbidden Worlds. Herbie would later get his own title and be turned into a “superhero” called the Fat Fury.   Founded by Benjamin W. Sangor, ACG was co-owned by Fred Iger from 1948 to 1967. Iger’s father-in-law, Harry Donenfeld, head of National Periodical Publications (later known as DC Comics), was also a co-owner in the early 1960s (though Donenfeld was severely incapacitated and out of the business after an accident in 1962). ACG was distributed by Independent News Company, which also distributed (and was part of the same company as) DC.  The company evolved out of a company owned by Sangor. In the mid-1930s, Sangor and Richard E. Hughes began to produce a short-lived prepackaged comics supplement for newspapers. In 1939, the Sangor Shop (as it was informally known) began producing comics for Sangor’s son-in-law Ned L. Pines. The Sangor Shop produced the characters and stories of The Black TerrorPyroman, and Fighting Yank for Pines’ Nedor Comicsand produced most of the comics for Pines until 1945.

In 1943, ACG started to publish its own work under such names as B&I PublishingMichel Publications and Regis Publishing. It acquired the publisher Creston Publications in 1943, making Creston into an ACG imprint. By 1948, it was publishing comics under the name of American Comics Group. Its titles were typical of the times, including horrorcrime, mystery, romance, and funny-animal comics. In 1948, it began publishing the long-running horror title Adventures into the Unknown. This was the first of a trilogy of ACG horror/supernatural titles that also included Forbidden Worlds (1951–1967) and Unknown Worlds (1960–1967).  In 1949, ACG began publishing two long-running romance titles, Romantic Adventures (later changed to My Romantic Adventures), and Lovelorn(later changed to Confessions of the Lovelorn). Both titles lasted into the 1960s.  The company survived the 1954 Senate subcommittee hearings on the dangers of comic books, even retaining its somewhat diluted horror title Adventures into the Unknown. However, in 1955 ACG canceled four long-running humor titles: the funn-animal series Giggle Comics and Ha Ha Comics, and the teen-humor titles Cookie and The Kilroys.  An October 1, 1952 “Statement of the Ownership, Management, and Circulation” published in ACG’s Forbidden Worlds #15 gave its publisher’s name as Preferred Publications, Inc., 8 Lord St., Buffalo, New York” and the owners as Preferred Publications and “B. W. Sangor, 7 West 81st Street, New York, N. Y.” The editor was listed as Richard E. Hughes, 120 West 183rd St., New York, N. Y.” and the business manager as “Frederick H. Iger, 50 Beverly Road, Great Neck, Great Neck, L. I., N. Y.” An October 1, 1950 statement published in ACG’s Cookie #29 gives identical data, with the exception of the publisher and co-owner being listed as “Michel Publications, Inc. 420 DeSoto Ave., St. Louis 7, Mo..  Almost all stories after 1957 were written by editor Hughes under a variety of pseudonyms. Besides the satirical superhero the Fat Fury, other ACG superheroes of the period known as the Silver Age of Comic Books included Magicman (starting in Forbidden Worlds #125), Nemesis in Adventures into the Unknown (starting with #154), and John Force, Magic Agent, in his own title in 1962, then later in Unknown Worlds (#35, 36, 48, 50, 52, 56), with a few stories in Forbidden Worlds (#124, 145) and Adventures into the Unknown (#153, 157).  By 1967, the company had ended publication, except for its commercial comics division, Custom Comics, established in 1950, which lasted until the early 1980s doing work for a variety of clients such as Montgomery WardTupperware, and the United States Air Force

These are the 3 most valuable TOBY PRESS comic books published in every year

TobyMostValuableComics1954

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things.

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are for their age a better investment. This can always be seen with most books from the 1950’s which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

Toby Press was an American comic-book company that published from 1949 to 1955. Founded by Elliott Caplin, brother of cartoonist Al Capp and himself an established comic strip writer, the company published reprints of Capp’s Li’l Abner strip; licensed-character comics starring such film andanimated cartoon properties as John Wayne and Felix the Cat; and original conceptions, including romancewarWestern, and adventure comics. Some of its comics were published under the imprint Minoan.    Elliott Caplin entered the comic-book field as editor of True Comics for the Parents Magazine Institute. Some years later, he founded Toby Press with reprints of his brother Al Capp‘s popular newspaper comic strip Li’l Abner, a satire built around hillbilly archetypes. The first Toby comic-book series was Al Capp’s Li’l Abner, which began with issue #70 (May 1949), picking up the numbering from Harvey Publications‘ Li’l Abner Comics. It ran 28 issues, through #97 (Jan. 1955) Toby’s second title was the four-issue Al Capp’s Dogpatch Comics, numbered #71, followed by #2-4 (June-Dec. 1949). The first three issues are re-reprintings of Li’l Abner strips that the newspaper syndicate United Feature had published in the omnibus comic-book Tip Top #112-114 (Nov. 1946 – Jan. 1947), while the contents of the fourth issue are uncertain. Following through 1952 were Al Capp’s Shmoo Comics #1-5 (July 1949 – April 1950); Al Capp’s Wolf Gal #1-2 (1951–1952); and a series of pocket-sized, 6.75 x 3.5-inch, one-shot comics produced as premiums for Oxydol and Dreft detergents: Al Capp’s Shmoo in Washable Jones’ TravelsAl Capp’s Daisy Mae in Ham Sangwidges also Cousin Weakeyes, and Al Capp’s Li’l Abner in The Mystery o’ the Cave!!    Toby’s next series was John Wayne Adventure Comics, named after the Hollywood Western star and frequently featuring photo covers bearing scenes from his movies. It ran 31 issues (Winter 1949/1950 – May 1955) and spawned its own Oxydol/Dreft pocket-sized premium, John Wayne: The Cowboy Trouble-Shooter! Further such premiums included Archie in Mask Me No Questions, featuring the Archie Comics teen-humor star; and Paul Terry‘s Terry-Toon Comics (both 1950).     In its brief existence, Toby Press published in a wide variety of genres, including funny animal, with the 42-issue Felix the Cat #20-61 (1951 – June 1955, taking over the numbering from the Dell Comics series), which spawned spin-offs including Felix the Cat 3D Comic Book (1953); Western, with the likes of Gabby Hayes Western, a one-shot starring the movie sidekick, and the 29-issue Billy the Kid Adventure Magazinewar comics such as the 15-issue Tell It to the Marines and the six-issue Monty Hall of the U.S. Marines (no relation to the game-show host); the genre-evident Young Lover Romances and Tales of Horror; the medieval-adventure one-shot The Black Knight, with art by Ernie Schroeder; and even a two-issue comic Captain Tootsie, that starred the heroic mascot of Tootsie Roll candy.  Toby’s final comic, Felix the Cat #61, was cover-dated June 1955.   Some covers bore the logo ANC, standing for American News Company, at the time the country’s largest newsstand distributor.

Most Valuable Comic Books Made in 2013 and 2012

The first online comic book price guide specifically for 2013 published comics.

This is a very clear look at what the most valuable single issue mass produced regular cover edition comic books of the year and their current values.  (Note prices may have gone up or down throughout the year).  These are current prices as of this date.

How many of these comics did you predict would be valuable?     Due to the increased demand in small print run comics from Image in 2012 many speculators entered the collect/profit comics world and therefore actually hurt the chances of current comics going up in value.  So far in 2013 only 20 different comics published out of 4,000 are worth $10.00 or more !

Notice the drastic difference in the list of most valuable comics from 2012 – there are 3x as many comics on the list and many more valuable ones that are still in strong demand.

Image has 6 of the most valuable comics of 2013

Image has 35 of the 59 most valuable comics of 2012 – that is 60% of all valuable comics of that year!

All comics are regular cover editions and 1st printings (unless noted otherwise)

SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for August 21 2013 Release Week

Support new comics !

This column is here to help promote brand new comic book series beginning with a #1 issue.

Pictured are this weeks new comic series selling out the fastest !

NewComics20130821

This weekly article will also take a close look at how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.

This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!

Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !

Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !

Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores – if even 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold !

So any comics on the list that still have copies left I guarantee are going to eventually all sell out.

Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !

Support new comics !

Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !

Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores – if even 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold !

So any comics on the list that still have copies left I guarantee are going to eventually all sell out.

Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled on August 6 2013 (42 days after release date)!
