SHAKER: ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER #1 | MARVEL | 2014

By Yves Navant

A CGC-graded 9.8 copy of this book just sold for $676, a smidgen over a more characteristic 666, but the book is worth that extra ten bucks. Part of Marvel’s All-New, All-Different initiative, this issue introduces Robbie Reyes, the first Ghost Rider to drive a flaming, haunted car instead of riding a spooky bike or spectral horse. Robbie drives a haunted car. Isn’t that rad?!? A 1969 Dodge Charger, to be precise. That is such a cool visual. The character’s design further deviates from his cowboy or biker predecessors. His head isn’t a disembodied skull but a blazing biomechanical head (?) that mimics the lines of his car; he and his vehicle are symbiotic. Based in Los Angeles, Reyes cares for a developmentally disabled younger brother, providing some genuinely heartwarming narrative moments. This run was great, and Reyes is a very enjoyable iteration of the Ghost Rider. Also of note is the mass media exposure Mr. Reyes has gotten during his tenure, joining the Avengers and appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Agents of SHIELD, portrayed by Gabriel Luna. Marvel did not print this issue excessively, adding to its desirability. In 2014, Ghost Rider was a character that had experienced several short runs due to lagging interest and sales. The introduction of Robbie Reyes was not printed with the typical furor and marketing as a bigger-name first appearance, relaunch, or first issue. Instead, the book received the typical print run for a monthly book at the time, at best. Ultimately, it’s a successful reintroduction of a fantastic character whose already been adapted for film and television, making the recent record-high sale perfectly logical.

SHAKER: ALL-STAR SQUADRON  #47 – NEWSSTAND | DC | 1985

By Matt DeVoe

After the Super Bowl’s tease of BLACK ADAM, which showcased our first glimpse of Dr. Fate, several key books started seeing some nice bumps in price. Now, All-Star Squadron #47 has never been considered a significant key, but it was one of the books to get a very nice surge in value to its new high of $975 for a CGC 9.8. While this newsstand had no prior 9.8 sales, the last direct edition 9.8 sale was for a mere $170 in January 2021. With an early Todd McFarlane cover and a modern origin of Dr. Fate, it’s officially now a key (and a pricey one at that). Raw copies for both the direct and newsstand are reasonable at a $40 FMV value.

SHAKER: AMAZING MYSTERIES #32 | MARVEL | 1949

By Matt DeVoe

This is one key Marvel book not to overlook in today’s world of firsts! While this week’s $975 raw sales mark a new high that we’ve recorded, it’s still WAY undervalued. This PCH is Marvel’s first-ever horror comic, and it was formerly known as Sub-Mariner Comics, rolling from issue #31 into this title. In 1949, pre-code horror books were highly scrutinized for violent, gruesome, sexual, and even satanic covers. We’ve shared enough covers here that’s make it hard to disagree with those who wished to shield their kids from such material. In 1949, the comic code’s start was still five years away, and this issue included a letter to the reader that addresses this controversy explicitly. It’s not well-known that Marvel was a prevalent player in the pre-code horror world, but this issue is a testament and written proof of this crazy moment in time that would bring about one of the most significant changes to comic books for over half a century!

SHAKER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #124 | MARVEL | 1973

By The Professor

Amazing Spider-Man #124 features the first appearance of the son of J. Jonah Jameson, John Jameson (AKA Man-Wolf!). Changing into the creature, he attacks his father, who recognizes the necklace around the creature’s neck as belonging to his son, and he soon realizes it IS his son. Spidey comes to the rescue, and with the Man-Wolf fleeing, J. Jonah threatens to say that Spider-Man actually attacked HIM if Spidey tries to capture the beast. Another great key ASM issue and some surprising record sales this past week. With most raw copies in previous months selling between $100-$200, it was remarkable to see two raw copies sell for $300, $500, and $560 (VF+) respectively this past week. Some of this may be related to the “trickle-down effect” as we saw a record sale for a CGC 9.6 of $2,850 right before the new year, as well as a CGC 8.5, hit $800, a CGC 8.0 surpass the $500 mark, and a CGC 6.5 hit $360 just last month.

SHAKER: CAPTAIN MARVEL #28 – REGULAR EDITION | MARVEL | 1973

By Matt DeVoe

We often mention how today’s collector slides down the line of affordable key issues in their budgets for their favorite character. This issue features several notable key appearances, such as the first appearance of Eon, the 3rd appearance of Drax the Destroyer, the 4th appearance of Thanos, and the 2nd Cover appearance of Thanos. While many of these key factors used to be minor… maybe even insignificant… that’s no longer the case to today’s collectors. There is MCU speculation around Eon, a cosmic entity, and his connection to time itself. He’s also a creator of the Quantum Bands that heroes like Captain Marvel (Mar-vell) and Quasar feature. This is a book that has a raw FMV of $48. However, this week’s 9.8 sale smashed all concepts of a high-sale with a mega new high of $22,800 on Heritage and was the first 9.8 sale we’ve ever seen. However, for comparison, a CGC 9.6 sold last week for $975… making that one heck of a good buy.

SHAKER: THE CAT #1 | MARVEL | 1972

By Yves Navant

Our feline fatale’s first issue and appearance sold this week for $2,640 (a new all-time high) & $1,104.99, both in a CGC grade of 9.6. This is a groundbreaking moment in comic history; this book was one of three conceived by early 1970’s Marvel to appeal to a female audience. In a masterful amalgam of diversity and pandering, Stan “The Man” Lee assigned three female writers to work from concepts and names he’d dreamt up for three female leads, among them Greer Grant, the Cat. The Cat was a feminist hero, a widow who had dropped out of college to marry her policeman husband. After her husband’s death, she ran into a beloved former physics professor who conducted experiments on Greer, heightening her physical abilities and senses to superhuman levels. Greer also wore a suit (well, she stole it from a burning lab in a moment of duress, ok?) designed to augment these refined abilities further. The book struggled to gain a footing, lasting only four issues, but this first issue was drawn by Marvel legend Maria Severin and inked by literal industry giant Wally Wood (EC Comics). The Cat appeared in an issue of Marvel Team-Up alongside Spider-Man before being fatally wounded and resurrected as Tigra, the were-cat-woman in Giant-Size Creatures #1. As Tigra, Greer Grant ascended past her turbulent beginnings by joining the Avengers, becoming a charter member of the West Coast Avengers, and appearing in the 1999 (think post-bankruptcy, pre-Disney Marvel) Avengers: United They Stand animated series. Remember that super cat-suit we discussed earlier? Well, that was found by the 1940’s teen soap opera character Patsy Walker (she was like Archie comics but for a larval version of Marvel) when she was hanging out with the Avengers in 1976; she wore it to become Hellcat. But, this isn’t about her. Sit down and wait your turn, Patsy. This book, Claws of The Cat #1, is a moment; it can be cherished as an example of women in comics working on a female lead character when that was not the norm, as well as an example of pop art imitating life at the height of female empowerment in America. Well worth this new high sale price.

SHAKER: CONVERGENCE SUPERMAN #2 | DC | 2015

By Matt DeVoe

There’s no more significant debate battle among collectors than first appearances vs. cameo appearances. But the new debate lies in whether a character’s first appearance as a baby counts as a proper first appearance. If you mentally already answered that question, you can see how such a debate exists. There are champions for both perspectives. Pre-covid, the “Baby firsts matter” camp was in the minority. The most infamous book in this rare debate is Uncanny X-Men #201, the first appearance of Nathan Summers as a baby, who later appears as Cable for the first time in New Mutants #87. New Mutants #87 is considerably more valuable than #201. However, this scenario is not playing out the same way for Jon Kent, aka Superboy, aka Superman. Unarguably, Jon Kent is quickly growing into a key character for DC. It’s clear that the publisher has long-term plans, which makes him one of the best (or at least most accessible) DC characters to invest in. His first appearance in this issue as a baby is rapidly out-pricingss all other key issues. For example, last week, raws sales hit as high as $82 with an all-new high sale of $825 for a CGC 9.8!! For comparison, his first appearance as a child in SUPERMAN: LOIS & CLARK #1, typically, has slow-moving sales at an FMV of $7 raw and a mere $40 for the variant. ​​We then see him age quickly through Superman (Vol. 4) with the first appearance in costume in SUPERMAN (Vol. 4) #2 and officially introduced as SUPERBOY in SUPERMAN (Vol. 4) #6. Those are both available below cover price. Jon Kent effectively takes on the mantle of Superman in SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #1, which has multiple pricey variants. Though, with such a price surge on his first appearance as a baby in this Convergence: Superman #2 issue, it’s worth mentioning that the rest of these early keys seem SUPER undervalued.

SHAKER: COYOTE #11 | MARVEL | MAR 1, 1985

By Matt DeVoe

Todd McFarlane is one of the most beloved artists of all time. His signature is in high demand, and any appearance or exclusive signing always sells out/ fills up in record time. Die-hard McFarlane collectors probably already know that this obscure Epic title, COYOTE #11, gets the honor of being his first published interior artwork. This week, it hit an all-time high with a 9.8 sale of $580. His first cover was for COYOTE #13, which is highly undervalued. An NM raw copy recently sold for $10 and an all-time high of $250 for a 9.8.

SHAKER: DEMON #1 | MARVEL | 1972

By The Professor

Created arguably during his ‘heyday’ of comic book cover art, Demon #1 features a beautiful and iconic early 1970’s Jack Kirby cover (who also penciled and wrote the issue itself). In it, the villain, Morgan le Fay, attempts to capture the great Wizard Merlin by laying siege to the citadel of Camelot. Merlin summoned his servant, The Demon, who could stem the attacking force. But as the end drew near, Merlin chose to destroy Camelot and instruct his demonic helper to flee into the world and await further instructions. The Demon turned into a man who was left walking the earth, waiting to be summoned back by Merlin once more. This past week we saw an incredible record high raw sale for $570, with another raw copy hitting $300. At the start of the year, we saw a CGC 9.6 hit $1700. Affordable lower-grade issues seem to still be plentiful.

SHAKER: DOCTOR FATE #1 – MOUSTAFA (1:25) | DC | 2015

By Matt DeVoe

As noted above, Doctor Fate books are heating up, thanks to the Super Bowl BLACK ADAM teaser. This 1:25 variant by Ibrahim Moustafa hot a new high of $600 for a 9.8 on Friday, two days before the teaser. What’s also notable is that this issue features the first appearance of Khalid Nassour as the new Doctor Fate. There have been some previous rumors of Khalid appearing in the film, though there’s been no confirmation or more recent rumors. Either way, this big sale was interesting to see.

SHAKER: THE EWOKS #10 – NEWSSTAND | MARVEL | 1986

By Matt DeVoe

In 1986, Marvel displayed this popular “Marvel Frame” cover across all their titles to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Marvel Universe. These covers were immensely popular and are highly collectible today. Like today, licensed comics weren’t big sellers compared to their super-hero competition. That made frame covers quite valuable for series like CARE BEARS, MUPPET BABIES, HEATHCLIFF, and now EWOKS. Mid-80’s Star Wars comics were dying. 1986 marked the last Star Wars at issue #107. Ewoks’ low interest also brought its series to a close at issue #14. Due to this scarcity, and growing collectibility, this newsstand sold for a hefty $250 raw this week. This isn’t an outlier either, as a copy sold for $180 back in December 2021. In 1986, the split between Newsstand and Direct editions was 50/50. So, it wasn’t necessarily rarer. Though, the condition was a significant factor. For comparison, Direct editions sell for a raw FMV of $54 (and that’s for VF copies on average). So, while hunting, don’t overlook these hard-to-find frame covers.

SHAKER: GEN 13 #1 – GEN-ET JACKSON COVER 1-H | IMAGE | 1995

By Matt DeVoe

Amongst all the content and new character weekly hoopla, Gen 13 has been quietly increasing in value. Granted, it’s nothing crazy, but it’s time not to overlook J. Scott Campbell’s first limited (Gen 13 #1 in 1994) and this ongoing series. 1994’s first issue of Gen 13 (limited series) featured his first published cover art, only preceded by the Purple Ashcan that was inked by Alex Garner and distributed at conventions almost a year before (which are both fantastic books to buy into). That initial 5-issue series was met with great success, which allowed it to move into an ongoing series. It was the first series to have numerous variants, exploding the variant game in a significant way that hasn’t slowed down even today. With 13 variants, most were sought after. Though, there were several front runners, like this Gen-et Jackson variant. It’s been pricey for years, floating around a $50 FMV. However, this week, a raw copy hit a new high of $100. Like the Lingerie cover at $90 raw this week, some of the other variants have followed in suit and hit their own new high. So there you go. They’re only going to go up and should see excellent 9.8 sales the next time one sells. Go out there and look for these at your LCS. Happy hunting!

SHAKER: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 | MARVEL | 2008

By DiodeLad

Dan Abnet introduced a new Guardians of the Galaxy team in Annihilation Conquest #6. The following month he started an ongoing series in which they are officially named “Guardians of the Galaxy.” It closely resembles the team we know and love from the James Gunn movies, featuring a line-up including Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. None of the characters appear for the first time in these pages, so this team-up is a key issue more like Ultimates #1 (2016) or Champions #1 (2016) than other series such as Young Avengers #1 (2005) or War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1 (2019) in which many of the characters also appear for the first time. Graded 9.8 copies sold for $650 and $701 this week, the highest sales since September of 2021.

SHAKER: HOWARD THE DUCK #1 – RON LIM – GWENPOOL (1:25) | MARVEL |  2015

By Matt DeVoe

First appearing via the cover on DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS #2 by Chris Bachalo, Gwenpool was simply a humorous response to the market’s immediate love for Spider-Gwen and the simple mashing of established heroes with Gwen Stacy. This bit of humor ended up turning Gwenpool into a fan-favorite character on her own. This week, it hit a new raw height of $497.89 and just keeps going up.

SHAKER: MARVEL #1 ART ADAMS 1:100 SKETCH VARIANT |  MARVEL | 2014

By DiodeLad

Art Adams slam-dunked these incentive ratios for Ms. Marvel #1, the first solo titled series for Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel. The 1:100 black and white version of the 1:50 with a red and yellow title hit a new high this week. This is a fun issue for Ms. Marvel collectors who like to hunt down the many Sara Pichelli variant late printings with different colored titles (the 7th printing sketch variant with the green title is most prized, a CGC 9.8 selling for $750 last October). But where the Pichelli cover feels dead serious, Adams captures the youthful enthusiasm and dynamism of an emerging Ms. Marvel. This incentive ratio sketch variant is a banger, regularly selling for over $750 in the graded 9.8, and this week it sold for $1,275!

SHAKER: RWBY #7 | DC | 2020

By Matt DeVoe

Due to low sales, the manga series RWBY was canceled at issue #7, along with issues #6 & 7 of GEN: LOCK. Since they were completed, both series were offered up digitally only. However, RWBY #7 and GEN: LOCK #6 were reportedly printed and held in Diamond Comic Distributor warehouses in May 2020. It’s unknown what happened to those two issues, though copies of GEN: LOCK #6 started popping up for sale on sites like eBay in March 2021, hitting a high of $200 raw. RWBY is slightly different and has had only one copy appear since this was reported. That copy popped up last week and sold for a massive $1,800 raw. The Derrick Chew variant for this issue is easier to find as they were released to Walmart as an exclusive within their comic packs. That variant also sold for an all-new high of $113 raw this week, most likely due to the attention from the standard issue’s sale. Are there copies floating around out there? Or was this a comp copy sent to the creators? Just in case, keep an eye out for it.

SHAKER: SPIDER-MEN II #1 – MICHAEL TURNER – SDCC 2017 – VIRGIN 

MARVEL | JUL 12, 2017

By Matt DeVoe

Last week we covered Aspen’s BATMAN / SUPERMAN #8 – MICHAEL TURNER – SDCC 2017 – ASPEN – COVER C VIRGIN (LIMITED 1000). At the same convention, they also provide a 3-cover variant set for Spider-Men II #, featuring Michael Turner’s art. While Turner passed away about four years before Miles debuted, Aspen recolored unproduced Spider-Man art into the closest thing we could ever get of Miles Morales by one of our favorite artists of all time. This virgin variant hit a new raw high last week of $155 and should increase as Ultimatum, aka “evil Miles Morales” (as he first appeared in this issue), increases in popularity.

SHAKER: TASKMASTER #3 – SHANE DAVIS (1:25) | MARVEL | 2021

By Matt DeVoe

This issue features the first appearance of Tae-Won aka Taegukgi, the national hero of South Korea and a key member of Tiger Divison. While he’s a tad MIA in Marvel comics right now, he’s one of several possible characters that actor Seo-Joon is speculated to poetry in THE MARVELS MCU film. However, Amadeus Cho is a front-runner. Still, Taw-Won is a great character to invest in. His potential hasn’t been explored enough, and he could indeed be a fun character to read in the future. Whether it’s these factors or the fact that this is a fantastic variant, it hit a new high raw sale of $342 this week. It was one of those FOMO books that never stopped increasing, despite not many talking about it these days.

SHAKER: WAR OF THE INDEPENDENTS #2 | RED ANVIL COMICS | 2011

By Matt DeVoe

War of the Independents was a unique crossover series by Red Anvil Comics. This series contained characters from various independent comic book companies. For example, the series featured over 200 indy favorites like Bone, Ant, Bomb Queen, Milk & Cheese, Flaming Carrot, Cerebus the Aardvark, Faust, Madman, Usagi Yojimbo, The Tick, Zen, Too Much Coffee Man, Megaton Man, The Maxx, Scud, The Toxic Avenger, Captain Canuck and of course Gumby & Pokey. It was the first and only time these characters interacted in one storyline (and will never see again). Despite being limited to 1,500 copies, the first issue is relatively cheap at $15 to $30. However, issue 2 moved a copy for $250 this week, only out-sold by a raw copy in 2021 for $255. What’s notable about this issue is that it focuses only on independent black characters and creators in comics. This included longtime indie creators such as Andre Batts (his character Dreadlocks) and Brian Williams (with his character Lucius Hammer). Other characters like Shadowhawk and Wargod (from Speakeasy comics) were also featured, not overlooking that Flava Flav and Chuck D also joined the fight. The print run is unknown, but it must be below due to this book’s scarcity. As noted, this 3-issue series features a collaboration that will most likely never happen again. So, keep an eye out for all three issues.

SHAKER: WITCHBLADE #150 – J. SCOTT CAMPBELL VARIANT | IMAGE | 1995

By Matt DeVoe

J. Scott has a huge fanbase who are more than willing to dish out big $ to get high-grade copies of his most hard-to-find covers. He did three Witchblade covers: #135, #150, and #151. The other two are also pricey but a little easier to find. Due to the scarcity around this variant, a raw copy sold for a new high of $250. This used to be a staple on convention walls but has since dried up.

SHAKER: WYTCHES #4 – EH RECALLED| IMAGE | 2015

By Matt DeVoe

Sometimes even the simplest errors/recalls can become significant money years later. For example, this EH cover had to be recalled and pulped. Per CGC, the label reads, “Recalled due to incorrect issue number printed on the cover.” In this case, it read issue three, despite being issue four. It’s a minor error that just hit a new high of $615 for a CGC 9.6. It was reported that out of the thousand print run, 69 copies were sold and shipped. This book doesn’t often appear, so its scarcity supports the destroyed run.

SHAKER: X-MEN #10 | MARVEL | 1965

By Matt Day

The 2022 Superbowl hath giveth to the comic book speculation community in the form of a new Doctor Strange 2 trailer and various potential Easter eggs! One of those Easter eggs that took people a while to realize, but when they did, X-Men #10’s started flying off the digital shelves. The trailer included dinosaurs, which caused speculators to jump to a possible Savage Land connection. The Savage Land, along with Ka-Zar and his empathically connected sabertooth tiger – Zabu – all first appeared in X-Men #10. This speculation caused an all-time high sale for a CGC 9.2 copy to hit $3,840 over on Heritage Auctions on 2/14. We have not seen any higher grade copies sold since the trailer hit, but it seems likely if a CGC 9.8 copy returns to the market after a 10+ year hiatus, it will eclipse the $16,250 sales point from 2011. So what do you think? Are the dinosaurs a precursor to the Savage Land playing a role in the MCU, or are they just filler for a multiverse jump scene for Doctor Strange and America Chavez? If you think it’s the former, hold on tight cause we’re likely in for a wild ride!

WHAT THE WATCHER IS WATCHING

WATCHING: STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC – TRAIL OF SHADOWS #5 – DAVID BALDEON VARIANT | MARVEL |  2022

By Topher S

Star Wars remains hot across the comic collecting community. Whether it’s Cad Bane, the Darksaber, Black Krrsantan, or others, fans can’t seem to get enough. This trend continues with Star Wars High Republic Trial of Shadows 5, the David Baldeon 1:25 variant. This book continues to climb, with recent sales topping 40-50, with only a few copies available at auction at any given time. The reason appears to be the first appearance of the Great Leveler, a being with the ability to cancel out the force. This book looks like the first cover for the evil, cosmic entity. The Leveler did cameo earlier, but this is probably going to be the book to get, and the way the eBay market is going, 40-50 could look like a bargain six months from now.

KEY COMIC OF THE WEEK

KEY OF THE WEEK: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #667 – GABRIELE DELL’OTTO (1:100) | MARVEL | 2011

By Matt Day

Modern variant? Not a 9.8? Get’outta heerreee! Many collectors and speculators are on the 9.8 or bust train. Is there a modern variant in CGC 8.0 condition you’d spend $3K on? 5K?? 7K??? Well, at least two bidders were willing to pay over $7K for a CGC 8.0 copy of Dell’Otto’s ASM #667 variant on February 14. Some VERY loving significant other must have bought their nerdy ASM fan a HUGE Valentine’s Day present to the tune of $7,366! This is the one and only lowest grade copy on the CGC census. A CGC 9.8 copy (of which there are 21 on the census) went for over $33K back in June of last year, so this is a pretty solid showing for such a “low grade.”
