Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday.

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: TWO CGC comics for $99. The Avengers #234 (1983) 9.8 AND 9.4. The Scarlet Witch is a mainstay (for now) within the Marvel cinematic universe. The Avengers #234 comic retells the Scarlet Witch origin. Both a 9.8 and a 9.4 priced at $99 is a sweet deal. This isn’t $99 for each, it’s for both. Two 1983 comics graded, with one being a 9.8 is a good deal. Better get this before it’s gone.

From Dark Horse comes a new Predator story; Predator Life And Death #1. Read the InvestComics review right HERE from filmmaker Ian Powers.

Image Comics’ The Discipline #1, written by Peter Milligan and art by Leandro Fernandez looks like a great read.

We love how the new Green Lantern #50 variant cover has Batman and Superman on it. No Green Lantern at all. Where’s Green Lantern? Get that money DC! But the Doug Mahnke cover is kinda sweet though.
Find out more about the new Batgirl villain in Batgirl #49. The conclusion of the Batman And Robin Eternal #22 story line will bring every single Batman partner into one book. His minions, his second fiddles, his pipsqueaks, his “you’ll never be Batman” peeps….you get the idea.

The Dustin Nguyen Batman Beyond #10 variant is quite awesome.
The $600+ Jim Lee Dark Knight III The Master Race #3 variant is still available at certain outlets. What a surprise right? A $600 brand new comic book is not sold out? Decisions Decisions…..should you go with that mid-grade first appearance of Black Panther or buy this book?

Mary Jane makes it onto another Invincible Iron Man cover; Invincible Iron Man #7. This cover is drawn by Kate Niemczyk. Marvel’s Women of Power covers are fantastic.
What’s behind the “classified” black-out section on the Deadpool #8 cover? Only cover artist Scott Koblish knows! The secret comic cover variant. Too funny.
The Black Widow title will work on its sixth volume number one issue. Mark Waid will write this volume.
The new Spider-Man series starring Miles Morales is doing very well. The Spider-Man #2 cover from Sara Pichelli will have non-fans pick this up and thumb through. More fans!
Avengers Standoff Assault On Pleasant Hill Alpha #1 (Party Cover) is sold out. Maybe is has to do with Gwenpool being on the cover?
The new Uncanny Avengers series is going to focus on the character Synapse; Uncanny Avengers #6. Her first appearance came in The Uncanny Avengers #1. The first EVER appearance of this character came in Daredevil #376 (1998).

There are so many variants coming out, it’s insane. Power Ranger fans will be in all their glory this Wednesday. GO GO POWER RANGERS!

The first appearance of Action Lab Entertainment’s logo in action takes place on Wednesday. Check out Action Lab Dog Of Wonder #1! This actually looks like a cool book. There are also two Neal Adams variants!

Chapter House Comics Publishing gives readers a double-shot of Captain Canuck this coming week. Aren’t we all lucky?! Check out All-New Classic Captain Canuck #1 and Captain Canuck #7. CC #7 will begin the Gauntlet story line. Jump on board.

BEST SELLING COMIC BOOKS of this DECADE (2010-2013)

BEST SELLING COMIC BOOKS of this DECADE (2010-2013)

WalkingDead100JusticeLeagueAmerica1UncannyAvengers1from2012

We are about to take an in depth analysis of  the Best Selling Comic Books of this time period to show the state of the current comic industry and look for any trends and to answer the all important question of “Can a comic with a gigantic print run have a chance of going up in value?”.

Only 131 different comic books have sold over 100,000 copies so far this decade.

Only 6 comics have sold over 200,000 in the past 40 months – a rare feat in the current comic economy.    In the same 40 month time period 50 years ago (1960 to early 1963) at least 1,200 different comics reached that sales figure !

The current biggest print runs either come with a new #1 series beginning, multiple covers, highlight of a storyline such as a 1st appearance or Death of a major character.

Walking Dead #100 is the best selling comic of this decade.  This super impressive for a number of reasons.  Its not a #1, its not a Marvel/DC title, its not a 1st appearance and its not even a superhero title.   Walking Dead is a sensation due to the huge interest in the TV show it ranks #1 mainly due to increasing demand for the title but primarily due to a large amount of variant covers which every Deadhead seemed to want.    Also impressive that Image has no other comics ever selling numbers that large and also the fact that no past issue of The Walking Dead had ever sold more than 80,000 copies before.

On the chart you will see its overall ranking followed by its monthly rank at Diamond when it was published.

Issue # is followed by original cover price and publisher and print run numbers.   Year and Month

I took current price values from 2 major online comic dealers – Mycomicshop.com and MileHighComics.com

I’ve had the debate so many times about whether its ever worth stockpiling new #1 issues when they have such massive print runs.  Surely these are not a good investment.  The majority of comics don’t go up in value in the first place nevermind an overprinted comic.

So here we will find out if this is true or not issue by issue.

First of all I am not here to advertise for either online comic dealer but wanted to show 2 prices to show how one dealer prices their books differently than the next.   Comics are worth whatever you want to pay.   MileHighComics are consistently much higher yet they often have up to 50% sales of their entire website inventory.

The one driving factor that makes books valuable is QUALITY.  Some titles offer an exciting storyline with amazing artwork. They may have a big influence in the superhero universe which makes these books historically important in the timeline chronology of the specific hero and their universe overall.  This helps keep demand up in the future and certain books will prove over time to be very important.    When this happens we find that the books do in fact sell out and increase.

Just because a book has a massive print run does NOT mean that it cannot sell out.  Comics values are all based on supply and demand.  A perfect example of this is the death of Peter Parker in Amazing Spider-man #700.  Not only the biggest print run of any Spider-man comic this decade but also historically important in his timeline which helped sell  the book out, go up in value instantly, and have 4 printings.

Does this mean then that all comics with high print runs must be important.   Definitely not !    There are still many books on the list which due to large print runs never sold out and stores were stuck with extra copies as they over estimated what they could sell and therefore the books may have even landed up in the $1.00 clearance bin.   You will see numerous books on the list that are still worth cover price.

Let’s just analyze the Top 10 best selling comics of the decade based on their price increase or no-increase.

Out of the top 10 we find Walking Dead, Justice League, Uncanny Avengers, Guardians, Avengers VS X-men 6, Avengers all hovering near the cover price.   That is 6 of the top 10 which shows in this instance that 40% of the top 10 actually sold out quick and had huge price gains:   Avengers VS X-men 1, Amazing Spider-man 700, Batman 1, Superior Spider-man 1.

In the top 20 the only books to show increases are Action 1, Avengers VS X-men 3 and 4.

So out of the top 20 only 7 have really gone up and 13 have not.

So which publishers have had the most succcess with big print runs:

Over 300,000 = Image 1 / DC 1 / Marvel 1
Over 200,000 = Image 1 / DC 1 / Marvel 4
Over 175,000 = Image 1 / DC 4 / Marvel 13
Over 150,000 = Image 1 / DC 13 / Marvel 22

It would appear that Marvel really is the top publisher based on the best selling and hyped up comics.

However out of the 131 comics to reach sales of 100,000 DC is actually in the lead.

Thanks to the New 52 re-launch of titles DC has 71 of the 131 titles which is more than half the entire list.

Marvel is close with 58 titles and Image sneaks in with 2 major hyped up books.  No other publishers make the list.
