SHAKER: ADVENTURE COMICS #12 / 515 – BERMEJO (1:25) | DC | 2010

By Matt DeVoe

In 2010/2011, DC & Marvel produced some of the rarest themed incentive variants. One of those rare sets was a series of homage covers that celebrated DC Comic’s 75th anniversary. Considered to be one of DC’s best variant theme sets, artists included the industry’s best with covers from Adam Hughes, Jim Lee, Mike Mignola, Lee Bermejo, etc.). Each cover had a DC75 at the top and ranged from 1:10 to 1:75 incentive ratios. This Bermejo 1:25 is so expensive that you would think it’s one of the 1:75s. This week, it had a big sale of $600 for a CGC 9.8, just $50 shy of the all-time high. However, it’s nice to see that highly sought-after variants have held their ground over the past year amidst a relatively unstable market of new characters and content-driven heat.

SHAKER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #607 – NEWSSTAND | MARVEL | 2009

By J1 Future

Amazing Spider-Man (ASM) #607 has become one of J Scott Campbell’s most famous covers, right next to ASM 606. While these issues weren’t his first work on Spider-Man, his rendition of Black Cat put Campbell on the map as a go-to cover artist. Due to this, his connection to Black Cat is still highly entwined (as you’ll see in the next entry). With those factors in mind, a recent Newsstand CGC 9.4 sold for a huge $600 this week. The All-time high was $1,005 for a 9.6 in March 2021. This comic came out during the end of the newsstand era, making it one of the rarest ASM comics you can find in a newsstand. ASM 606 and 607 are probably one of the greatest one-two punch comic covers you will find, and they weren’t even variants! Just your standard cover A-cover comics.

SHAKER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ISSUE #4 – J. SCOTT CAMPBELL – CONQUEST COMICS – COLOR | MARVEL | 2014

By Jeremy Imlach

We’ve covered the first appearance of Cindy Moon as Silk before, so this issue of Amazing-Spiderman shouldn’t be a surprise as a market shaker. This time, however, we’re focusing on a specific J. Scott Campbell variant. This book was released as a Conquest Comics exclusive and was limited to a 5000-unit print run. There is also a Black & White variant, limited to 3000 – and a Negative variant, limited to a 1500 print run. A graded 9.8 issue of this color variant recently sold for $575 and is currently on a +0.31% trend. This cover, featuring Black Cat, qualifies as an instant Campbell classic.

SHAKERS: COCAINE COMIX #3 | LAST GASP | JAN 1, 1981

By Matt DeVoe

At first glance, this may seem like just another weird indie comic. Predominantly featuring the devil surrounded by naked women, that’s a fair assessment. However, it’s also one of the most popular and sought-after underground comics. The cover, by indie legend Robert Williams, may not feature a household name to most comic fans. However, Williams worked alongside creators like Robert Crumb to usher in this new genre of comics that featured a weird mix of anti-establishment and social deviance. The underground comic movement was the antithesis of the comic code. Following in the steps of their pre-code horror trailblazers, books like this pushed the limits of what could be done in comics and what we, as an audience, considered art. While many comic fans devoured popular superhero books, die-hard comic fans looking for more adult storytelling turned to these underground/indie titles. What’s also interesting about this comic and all four issues in the series is that they all contained stories and internal art from George DiCaprio, father of Leonardo DiCaprio. George was instrumental in distributing underground and indie comics throughout the west coast for most of the ’70s and ’80s, placing him right in the heart of increasing exposure of these anti-superhero books, challenging creators and opening the door for companies like Image comics and every other independent publisher. With this issue a new high of $300 for a CGC 6.5, expect underground books to follow the likes of pre-code horror in the future. They’re not easy to find and suffer from terrible paper quality. This particular issue had a print run of 10,000 copies. This may sound like a lot, but these had little to almost no market value for decades and floated in the “adult” section of comic stores, deteriorating away. Iconic underground comics, like Cocaine Comix #3, are only going to increase in value.

SHAKER: THE DARK CRYSTAL #1 – NEWSSTAND | MARVEL | 1983

By Matt DeVoe

A common theme through this market report is the power of both nostalgia and newsstands in the aftermarket right now. Both of these two trends are two of the biggest (and steadiest) price drivers. Content-based book’s volatility has scared away new collectors and some big spenders, who have pivoted to something a little more certain. Mix in a rare high grade, and then you get this book’s new high sale of $456 for a CGC 9.8. However, if you want something more affordable, then go for Dark Crystal’s first appearance in MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL #24 (1983). That’s right, the first appearance is cheaper. This is mostly due to the fact that “The Dark Crystal” is easier to search for than “Marvel Super Special”. Also, the release date was only a couple of months apart.

SHAKER: EVIL ERNIE #1 | MALIBU | 1991

By Nick Richardson

Evil Ernie has been on fire lately! The straight-up evil, telepathic supervillain has been enjoying a serious revival. But, he wasn’t always that way. As an abused child who manifested powers, Evil Ernie has connected with a wide fanbase that (apparently) now has deep pockets. A fan of the evil-doer recently dropped $3,120 for a CGC 9.8, an all-time high sale by about $1,100. That’s some serious cash to drop on a rare indie book. With only 38 total 9.8’s on the CGC census, it is the price a fan was willing (or had to) pay to secure this elusive book in a high grade. The last 9.8 sold in 2020, an eternity ago, as we emerge on the other side of the comic boom. On top of that, his first preview appearance in Malibu Sun #8 saw an all-time high sale of $700 for a RAW book last week. A raw book! Evil Ernie has been making a comeback in a major way as of late, when Dynamite released a new series to commemorate his 30th-anniversary last year. Fans of the character and series were ecstatic to experience new Evil Ernie and Lady Death escapades. While mainline, squeaky clean characters have been enjoying high sales themselves, they should keep a lookout for ole Evil Ernie creeping up behind them to dispense his patented forms of tomfoolery.

SHAKER: FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (SIENKIEWICZ VIRGIN VARIANT)| MARVEL | 2018

By Keith Shimabukuro

A few weeks ago, our writer Van Denby added this book to our WHAT THE WATCHER IS WATCHING in our 7.1.22 Market Report. That was when raws were trending at $112. Well, we didn’t have to wait too long as there were two sales of a 9.6 for $400 on 8/1/22 and a record raw sale of $255 on 7/5/22. There are a ton of rumors out there on how Doctor Doom will be used in the MCU, with the earliest appearance possibly being in Black PantherWakanda Forever, in Fantastic Four (DUH!), or the Avengers: The Kang Dynasty/Secret Wars. Like with any major character, his first appearance in Fantastic Four #5 is out of reach for the average collector (raw FMV of $3,550 and 9.4 FMV of $162K), which begs the question, what do collectors reach for next? Variant covers are a good choice, and this beauty by the legend Bill Sienkiewicz fits that bill. As we previously noted, there were only 1,500 printed (with 150 signed) and sold exclusively on his website. Only 106 CGC 9.8 comics are on the census (38 are signature series), making this rare for a modern. Doom is supreme!

SHAKER: FOOM #10 | MARVEL | 1975

By Keith Shimabukuro

It’s been a while since we talked about this book (November of 2021, when a 9.4 sold for $5,000), and in that time, it’s hit crazy all-time highs for graded and raw copies. As discussed previously, collectors have tried to claim this preview as the first appearance of the new X-Men team (Colossus, Cyclops, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, Banshee and Thunderbird), but according to shipping dates Giant Sized X-men beat it to the shelf by a few months. Nonetheless, this book is considerably rarer than GSX #1 and certainly deserves its lore in the X-men’s chronology. Since we last reported on this book, a 9.8 sold for an incredible $33,600 on 4/8/22, and raw copies have gone for a record $2,9841.71 on 5/25/22, $1,403 on 7/24/22 and a near-record $2,425 on 7/31/22. Who says you need to be giant-sized???

SHAKER: HAUNTED MANSION #1 – SKOTTIE YOUNG VARIANT | MARVEL | 2016

By Matthew Glover

Welcome Foolish Mortals to the Haunted Mansion. Our tour begins here with this frightfully fun Skottie Young Variant. Is this Comic actually stretching? Or is it just your imagination? Consider this dismaying observation, there is a Haunted Mansion movie currently in production that is slated for a March 10th, 2023 release date. This may explain why a copy of this variant recently sold for $325 in a 9.8. This series was a part of the Disney Kingdom Line that Marvel began to produce in connection with Disney. This issue features wall-to-wall creeps and hot and cold running chills—one to keep your eyes on as we get closer to the movie’s release.

SHAKER: MARVEL SUPER-HEROES SECRET WARS (CANADIAN PRICE) #7 | MARVEL COMICS | 1984

By Yves Navant

The now infamous, original Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars is gaining attention due to the newly announced MCU Avengers film borrowing the title. This issue, #7, just sold for $900 in a CGC graded 9.8. It’s the first appearance of Julia Carpenter, who used the Spider-Woman appellation for 15 minutes, so there’s that. It’s also a rare instance where only the Canadian price appears on the cover of a book. In 1982, Marvel (and DC) began charging more for books imported to Canada due to an escalating exchange rate. The original Secret Wars #’s 1-9 are one of the few Marvel books printed at the time featuring the increased $1.00 Canadian price, as opposed to the 75¢ American price. This makes a series known for the excitement of its sequels, multimedia adaptations, and fan favorite introductions (we mean the symbiote suit, Julia. Calm down. You’re not even Spider-Woman anymore) even more covetous among speculators and collectors. As the currently forever-far-away 2025 release date of Avengers: Secret Wars approaches at a snail’s pace, you can expect much more speculation around Secret and Wars.

SHAKER: MARVEL SUPER-HEROES SECRET WARS #10 | MARVEL | 1985

By Nick Richardson

Here we go. ANOTHER big newsstand sale. This one has some heat to it as well. The community is chomping at the bit at the thought of the Fantastic Four coming to the MCU. Of course, their greatest villain, and one of the greatest villains, period, wouldn’t be far behind. That is, Dr. Doom! The rumor mill is turning, with some speculating Doom may appear as early as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Unsubstantiated, of course, but that hasn’t stopped “key” Doom issues from spiking, including this one! A CGC 9.8 newsstand copy recently sold for $600. That’s nearly double what it most recently sold for in a 9.6 and the average of the Direct Edition in a 9.8. This book sports one of the best Doom covers of all time from the excellent Mike Zeck, the visage of Doom after his battle with the Beyonder. When Secret Wars was announced at SDCC and Fantastic Four on the horizon, fans couldn’t help but theorize how Dr. Doom and the Beyonder might be on the horizon as well. If so, this is a must-have book after Doom defeats the Beyonder, ending the Secret Wars (off-panel, no less.) Deserving of the moniker, we’d say.

SHAKER: MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL #6 | MARVEL | 1978

By Keith Shimabukuro

Growing up in Hawaii made me fascinated with sharks, and I always loved watching Shark Week on Discovery. Who doesn’t want to watch the Jackass crew go toe-to-toe and get bit by a shark? Jaws is undoubtedly the most famous shark on the planet, and his first appearance is in an incredibly rare Janese Gekiga called Jaws, which coincided with the release of the original movie in 1975. Unlike Manga, Gekiga is a dramatic style aimed at adults. Marvel Super Special appears to be Jaws’ first American release, based on the sequel Jaws 2. Although not as rare as the Gegika, this comic is still relatively rare and a 9.2 sold for a record $360 on 8/1/22. Sharks aren’t all that bad.

SHAKER: NEW AVENGERS #7 | MARVEL | 2013

By Matt DeVoe

Black Panther and related Black Panther characters’ key books are at market heights right now. Couple this with the impossible task of owning the first or even any early Namor issue, and you’ll understand why fans are having a tough time determining what to speculate on and invest in when it comes to BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER. For this film, fans have turned to key story points. While it’s not completely clear what the entire plot will be for the film, the trailer alludes to a war between Wakanda and Atlantis. In this issue of New Avengers #7, Wakanda Declares War On Atlantis. It’s worth noting that Marvel is changing the name of Atlantis to prevent confusion between Aquaman and Namor, so the plot isn’t exact. Yet, that didn’t stop one buyer from dropping $550 on a 9.8 of this issue. The raw FMV is very affordable at $7.

SHAKER: NINTENDO POWER #1 | NINTENDO | 1988

By Cobra

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this issue of NINTENDO POWER hit the shakers list. The last time this book hit the shakers list was a weekly report in 2021! Last year, this book shattered new highs with the sale of a graded 6.0. It’s back on the list for an awesome record-breaking CGC 8.0 sale of $1500! This is the second highest graded sale, with the highest sale being that of a graded 8.5 copy. This new high sale could be attributed to anticipation of the new Mario movie, coming out in 2023. However, the most likely reason is that this is a highly desirable magazine for many nostalgic NES collectors, especially in high grade! Here’s the breakdown… There are only 51 CGC-graded copies of this book. Over 70% of those submissions are graded lower than 8.0. As for the high grades, there are two copies of an 8.0, two copies of an 8.5, six copies of a 9.0, and two copies of a 9.4 (the highest grade). Such a rare find will always garner considerable attention from the collector community, which reflects in the boost in value. Note: this was for the “Free Poster” edition. The differences are: The Sample Edition is labeled as PREMIERE ISSUE 1988 on the cover and the spine. In the star/bubble, it notes “FREE SAMPLE.” The Super Mario 2 sub-text also reads “18-Page Spectacular”. This edition was reportedly sent out to the Nintendo Fun Club Members. The “Free Poster” edition is labeled JULY/AUGUST 1988 on the cover and the spine. The yellow star/bubble reads FREE POSTER. You could pick up these copies on newsstands or order by mail. The Super Mario 2 sub-text reads, “20-Page Spectacular.

SHAKER: ROBOCOP #1 | MARVEL | 1987

By Matt DeVoe

ROBOCOP is the “ultimate ’80s movie.” Over-the-top action scenes, horrific violence, science-fiction fascination with robots, and poignant social exploration deliver that typical Paul Verhoeven philosophical satire. To which a regular audience member and film critics strip down to as “cheesy.” Even Verhoeven dismissed the initial script by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner until the satirical element was pointed out to him by his wife. That element became a typical tone across all his future films (Total Recall, Starship Troopers, Basic Instinct, and Showgirls). Despite the misfire of a 2014 reboot (which I enjoyed), Robocop is an ’80s icon and has had a considerable influence on pop culture, with references across decades worth of content. Like many ’80s and ’90s properties, nostalgia is a massive driver of collectible purchases and today’s most successful content. Robocop has been named one of the best science-fiction films of all time with a 91% fresh Rotten Tomato rating. The New York Times lists it as one of the top 1,000 best movies ever. Robo has most recently appeared in the film READY PLAYER ONE and as a DLC playable character in 2019’s MORTAL KOMBAT 11. Flash forward to a couple of weeks ago, when the gameplay trailer for ROBOCOP: ROGUE CITY was released, and fans went nuts for it! With Peter Weller returning to the role, this game is already being hailed as ROBOCOP 4 and has risen Robo back into the minds of fans. This has brought forth fan requests for new content on the classic Robocop we know and love. With that said, his various comic appearances have always been super affordable (even ignorable). High-grade copies on this first comic appearance (with a great cover from Mark Teixeira) tend to float around $30 raw. Yet, it was this week’s massive high sale of $800 for a CGC 9.6 that got our attention. All those combined reasons above are the numerous factors driving prices up for this nostalgic key. The previous high was for a CGC 9.8 this past April at $522. So, when you see this book out in the wild, you may now be more likely to say, “I’d buy that for a dollar.” (sorry, I had to do it)

SHAKER: SPAWN #306 – FINAL KOMBAT | IMAGE | 2020

By Matt DeVoe

Due to concerns over the then spreading COVID-19, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment decided to cancel the 2020 Last Chance Qualifiers (LCQ) for Final Kombat 2020. This epic Mortal Kombat tournament left many players without a chance to compete for the 16th spot in the tournament and left the finale without a live audience. There are rumors that this exclusive cover was made solely for the players of this tournament and LCQ. If that rumor were true, less than 130 players would be signed up for the LCQs and 15 pre-qualified finalists. On the opposite side of this theory, the exclusive cover may have been made for every attendee. If this were true, a quick search of the Park West venue indicates a max capacity of 1000 attendees. Therefore, if we were to speculate on a print run of this book, it would be somewhere in the range of 150-1000. However, this is not indicative of the number of books distributed, which could be far less than the actual print run. There is one fact that we do know, there are currently a sparse nine copies on the CGC census. Of those seven, only three are graded at a 9.8, with one of those selling this week for a massive new high of $5,000. The future of this ultra-rare cover is sure to continue breaking records (unless a thousand copies pop up suddenly).

SHAKER: SHAZAM #25 | DC | 1976

By Nick Richardson

There has been a myriad of controversies surrounding the slate of films and shows soon to be released from Warner Brothers. As a result, the recent news of Batgirl being canceled (after being nearly completed) is shaking the industry and leading to much uncertainty. Luckily, fans of DC have a few solid projects to look to, including the upcoming Black Adam film! Isis, who first appears in this book, is set to appear in the movie, played by Sarah Shani, and is the wife of Black Adam (in the books). Uncertain fans have still moved to pick up her first appearance, recently paying top dollar for a CGC 9.6, dropping $660 to secure a copy. Sales in this grade have been rising on this book since last year after holding steady at around $250. With news of the Rock signed up to a 10-picture deal and the recent teaser dropped at SDCC, fan excitement is still high, leading some to speculate Isis will be a big player in the future. No one knows yet, where she fits in the larger DCEU, but that hasn’t stopped fans from putting stock in this interesting character imbued with the powers of the Goddess Isis.

SHAKER: S.H.I.E.L.D. #9 – ART ADAMS – HOWLING COMMANDOS (1:50) | MARVEL | 2015

By Matthew Glover

What does the 50th Anniversary of SHIELD and monsters have in common? If you said the first appearance of the Howling Commandos of SHIELD, you’d be correct. This issue was billed as a big deluxe edition that celebrated the 50th Anniversary of SHIELD. At about this time, the TV series Agents of SHIELD was also soaring in popularity. This particular cover was 1:50 with art by Art Adams. There have been ongoing rumors for a while now about a Werewolf by Night character showing up in the MCU sometime soon, which may have fueled this purchase. The issue recently sold for $450 in a graded 9.8. The fair market value of this issue in the raw goes for about $125.

SHAKER: SHURI #1 – SKOTTIE YOUNG | MARVEL | 2018

By Matthew Glover

Our sponsored Youtube channel, NEARING NERDVANA, featured a BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA #1 – SKOTTIE YOUNG MARVEL BABIES VARIANT (2016) on their Long Story Short | Ghost Books | Bangers | Comic Oddities | Episode 4 show. Inspired by that pick, we came across this rare and hard-to-find Shuri Skottie Young cover. The heat from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer contributed to a record $100 raw comic sale on July 28th. This cover was part of a difficult order scheme for retailers. Marvel required retailers to meet or exceed 200% of orders for Black Panther #3 (MAY180880) with orders for Shuri #1 regular cover, and this variant was order all you want. As such, there are far fewer copies of this cover than others. This issue also happens to be the first solo series for Shuri. With her first appearance becoming as hot as a Wakandan Summer Day and her first appearance as Black Panther becoming as valuable as Vibranium, it’s easy to see why collectors are turning to the solo series. With the scarcity of this cover and the character’s popularity, expect this comic to increase in value.

SHAKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #101 – NEWSSTAND | MARVEL | 1985

By Van Denby

Negative space covers have become wildly popular in comics in the past four years or so, but this type of cover has been around for ages. This John Byrne (Legend) cover was released in 1985, for example. This book is a consistent seller and an eye-catcher when on a wall in a shop as well. As noted throughout this market report, higher-grade newsstand copies are commanding more of a premium than the standard (a high-grade copy in either is tough to find, thanks to this black & white cover… two colors that are not friends with condition). This week’s new high sale for this Newsstand sold for $720 in a 9.8, outpacing the last sale of $336 in May 2022 and the previous all-time high of $678 in March 2020.

SHAKER: STRANGE TALES ISSUE #169 | MARVEL | 1973

By Jeremy Imlach

After a 5-year publishing hiatus, Strange Tales returned with the first appearance of Brother Voodoo, Jericho Drumm. Strange Tales #169 introduces us to the origin of the character, which doesn’t always happen in first appearances. He was eventually chosen to replace the Sorcerer Supreme after Dr. Strange lost the position for having used dark magic. A 9.2 graded comic recently sold for $1,080, slightly below FMV for books in that grade, hovering around $1,160. Currently, the book is on a downward trend of -0.27%. The highest sale in that grade was $2,199.99 back in February of this year, which was significantly higher than all of the other sales in the same grade – meaning that this price range was not a consistent trend. Either way, this is a popular book for every collector and continues to retain value year over year.

SHAKER: SUB-MARINER #59 | MARVEL COMICS | 1973

By Yves Navant

Thanks to the (admittedly heartbreaking) trailer for the continuation of a dead man’s franchise, suddenly, everyone is in love with Namor. This book, 1973’s Sub-Mariner #59, just sold for a whopping $1,950 in a CGC graded 9.8. In the issue, Namor enters New York to rescue a wrongly captured Atlantean girl. Thor confronts him, and they fight (as seen by this AWESOME cover). Namor returns to Atlantis to consider a full-scale invasion of the surface world. It’s cool. They eventually end up Avengers together. Issues where A-list characters meet (and fight) are collector favorites (just ask any Silver or Bronze Age Hulk versus Thing back issue), and with Namor’s star on the rise, this issue is one of those books. An added cool factor of this particular issue is that it was written by the legendary Bill Everett, the fella who created Namor in 1939. Tenoch Huerta shall play Namor in the MCU’s forthcoming Wakanda Forever, and he appears in the aforementioned trailer (baby Namor being born with little wings on his ankles? I die). Namor will be the star of many future record-high sales. Listen, somebody has to say this, and I’m happy it’s me- Namor’s creation also predates Aquaman (about two years), so spend all your money on Namor books. In your face, Jason Momoa.

As we noted many times, The Ducktales #1 SDCC 2011 – NES Homage is one pricey and highly sought-after variant. However, a year before that classic SDCC cover was released came this exclusive for SDCC 2010. While it lacks that nostalgic homage, its scarcity equals that of the 2011 NES homage. This week was the first sale we’ve ever seen at $250. It’s also notable for being the first time Boom! used the Ducktales title before officially starting its own series in 2011.

WATCHING:  NEW AVENGERS #40 | MARVEL | 2008

When D23 hits in a few weeks, numerous books are going to take over the aftermarket. DC’s rebuild will be nipping at Marvel’s heels next year, leading to MANY opportunities for long-undervalued DC books to get that “MCU heat.” One rumored announcement is around a final announcement of VERANKE the Skrull Queen. Her first appearance in this issue once hit highs of $55 raw and $440 in a 9.8. However, today, raws trend at $20 with 9.8s at $320. It’s a nice lull to watch closely to see if sales pick up closer to D23.

KEY COMIC OF THE WEEK

KEY OF THE WEEK: WONDER WOMAN #6 | DC | 1943

By Cobra

DC has been all over the media lately, and not in the best way. Although WB/DC may be faltering with its movie properties, fans still see the value of comic gems like this one. Cheetah is a prominent figure in Wonder Woman’s mythos, brought to life by Charles Moulton. Regardless of film portrayals, Cheetah is a legendary villain, and her first appearance is nothing short of an epic piece of comic history, even in lower grades. This is precisely what one buyer thought when they broke new all-time high records for a $3500 sale of a CGC 1.8! A picturesque purchase for the Princess of Themyscira’s greatest foe!
