Buy, Sell, Hold – Werewolf By Night #32

One comic is chosen to go under the scope. What is the best course? As a speculator, is it worth buying, selling or holding?
Here are the pros and cons, YOU decide.

Werewolf By Night #321975
Writer: Doug Moench
Art: Don David Perlin
Inker: Howie Perlin
Cover Art: Gil Kane & Al Milgrom

PROS: The first appearance and origin of Moon Knight – The first appearance of right-hand man ‘Frenchie’ – An extremely valuable commodity in the aftermarket. An 8.5 CGC graded recently SOLD for $930+. This is an extremely high-priced sale for a character not considered to be an A-lister. A RAW copy sold for $700+ a couple of days later (see ‘cons’) – A constant rumored to be character from every television studio to movie studio to see live action (see ‘cons’) – IF Moon Knight ever does see the light of day, with SOLID news/confirmation of a live action, this comic will be aftermarket gold – A much revered cult followed character – A Gil Kane/Al Milgrom cover – Dubbed Marvel’s “White Knight” from comic fans – A part of the West Coast Avengers team at one point –  A Bronze Age comic – Constant upward ticks over years makes this comic very desirable. InvestComics recommended this comic 12 years ago and thru-out the years since. The comic was able to be bought in certain area’s for $100 at the time we first mentioned.

CONS: There are a total of 1873 graded copies (CGC Census). Out of those copies, 580 are graded 9.0 or higher. This is NOT including a CBCS Census (no data). NM copies are readily available out there and CBCS has not been factored in here – Rumors have been bound for a couple of years now, but have been getting particularly stronger more recently,  which means absolutely nothing – Rumors are not a stable environment for long-term investments. Markets need validity, balance and hard copy to proceed in the correct direction. If rumors continue, it will be a score for the seller. If rumors cease and or studios do not make a move (announcement), look for a possible major correction on this comic. RAW copies will take a major hit as graded books will wane away – As a non A-list Marvel character a $700 sale for a RAW copy is a bit of an aggressive stance for any speculator at this point.

What do you think? Is this comic a buy, sell or hold?

From the InvestComics Moon Knight Checklist

Werewolf By Night #33 (1975) Second appearance.
Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976) First solo book. Legendary writer Doug Moench on this book and long time penciler Don Perlin. A must for any Moon Knight collector here. Several first appearances in here.
Moon Knight #1 (1980) His first solo/self titled book. Bill Sienkiewicz art. First appearance of Bushman, Khonshu and Dr. Peter Alraune. Origin of Moon Knight  part 1. Also Sienkiewicz cover art.
Marc Spector Moon Knight #55 (1993) The first definitive Moon Knight artist. Legend Bill Sienkiewicz was amazing, but Stephen Platt took the character look to a whole new level. This is the Miller Dark Knight, the McFarlane Spidey, the Simonson Thor, etc. The first defining artist moment in Moon Knight history is right here. The second comes later. Too bad Stephen wasn’t enough at the time to save this series from its demise a short time later. The first published work of Stephen Platt.

Throughout the years InvestComics has explained that there is something within the speculative/collectors market that is just as important as the first appearance of a character. Sometimes an overlooked nugget, but most are privy to it. A characters second appearance is not only a fun get, but sometimes very affordable. Sometimes not, therein is the chance to make your decision as an investor to jump in or not. We cannot make that decision for you, nor would we. We will simply guide you and the rest is up to you.

For many years on this site, InvestComics has spoken about Marvel’s White Knight. Now he gets the Spotlight treatment. This checklist is the most extensive Moon Knight checklist on the internet. What you will find are many first appearances, key books, creator books, covers, etc. It’s absolutely a bookmark spot on your pc/phone.

So why Moon Knight? As said before, for many years InvestComics has spoken highly of this character and waiting for the moment that he breaks loose. InvestComics feels now is the time to give Moon Knight his due on the site and dedicate an entire article/checklist on him. We feel that MK is as close to breaking out as he’s ever been. A television announcement? A major motion picture announcement? Either way, it will be fantastic news for collectors and readers that follow Moon Knight.

A complex character that rivals DC’s Batman; hence “the White Knight”. Imagine if and possibly when Marvel Studios decides to go very dark, go in the direction of the Batman lure. They have their character right here. They have the history since 1975. The story is all there, the darkness, the emotion, the violence, the struggle. Let’s understand one thing here though. While the comparison is being made, he is not Batman. He never will be, so fanboys please relax. Batman is its own entity, we get that. What InvestComics is saying is Moon Knight possesses the dark ambiance as a character, just like Batman. And it would be amazing to see Marvel Studios take on a “Batman” like character. The grittiness of Moon Knight, that is like the Batman lure into moving pictures somehow. Be it T.V. or the big screen. It is time to get the Moon Knight character out there.

Avengers #501 (2004) Here is that “second artist” being referred to from earlier. David Finch first draws Moon Knight in this comic. He, like Platt will be looked at as the “go-to” when and if the Moon Knight makes it to television or the movies. Their art/style will be the foundation to which the character is based on. David Finch returns on this list again…..

Marvel Team-Up #3 (2005) Robert Kirkman, yes that one, writes a story here that includes Moon Knight in it (as filler). The headliner here is Dr. Strange. Kirkman writes a Dr. Strange story. Yep it happened. Let’s get back to Moon Knight……

Each week InvestComics will bring readers a few comics that have been long since forgotten. There is no redeeming value what so ever, but great reading value here. And that in itself is the best value any collector could get out of comics. So take a read about some of these once hot books and not so hot books back in the day. Happy hunting!

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now

Zot #1 (1984) – This series was a popular one back in the 80’s. It’s a Scott McCloud creation. It was from Eclipse Comics, which put out some great comics. Zot lasted about 40 issues or so. The first issue is a scarce get.

Jack of Hearts #1 (1984) – One of the best D level Marvel characters ever. Back in 1984, this limited series hit with little fanfare, but was still a great read. Writer Bill Mantlo brought Jack of Hearts to a new level here. So much so (insert sarcasm here) that Jack of Hearts went on to appear about 10 more times in various comics in the next 7 years. Jack first appeared in The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #22 (Cameo). His first full appearance is in the next issue; The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #23. Here’s a cool thing here. The creator of Jack of Hearts (Bill Mantlo) teamed with the great Keith Giffen on the cameo issue, then teamed with Legend Gil Kane for the first full appearance. That’s an impressive cameo and first right? Oh Jack of Hearts where art thou?

Six From Sirius #1 (1984) – An amazingly fun four part space epic from Marvel’s imprint Epic Comics. Writen by Doug Moench and pencils by Paul Gulacy. The series did well and spawned another limited series a year later. Rumors had this coming to the big screen a few times, but who knows if that will ever happen. A great story here nonetheless.

Vigilante #1 (1983) – Boy was this a great comic back in the 80’s. With Marvel’s Punisher character gaining more popularity, DC gave fans Vigilante and it was spectacularly fun. Brought to you by the always reliable great storyteller Marv Wolman and art by Keith Pollard. Vigilante’s first appearance was in New Teen Titans Annual #2 (Adrian Chase). The series went on to last only 50 issues, but what a fantastic action packed comic book run it was. Alan Moore and Gil Kane were part of this great series. Vigilante #50 was a controversial issue because Vigilante took his own life, thus ending the series of course. A scarce series ending issue. Low print run.

The Badger #1 (1983) – Speaking of fun action packed comics, The Badger was just that. Capital Comics had a few comics that are worth looks, this was one of them. They went out of business and Badger moved on to First Comics as of issue #5. Writer Mike Baron at the helm here. A great independent title that lasted 70 issues.

Blue Devil #1 (1984) – Here is a DC rated D character that first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm #24. An engaging character that never really caught on with many, but did have a following. The series went on to last 31 issues, but Blue Devil has appeared throughout the DC Universe on a regular basis despite the non demand for him thereafter. He recently showed up in one of the InvestComics Hot Picks (#369) Justice League #40. And this book is semi-hot right not. Not because of Blue Devil.

Jemm Son of Saturn #1 (1984) – Here is the first appearance of this character in a 12 issue limited series. Jemm goes on to make brief appearances, but never takes on a leadership role. Another D level character here. An interesting limited series featuring Superman in issues 3-6. Gene Colon pencils. Jemm also appears in the recent Justice League #40.
