SHAKER: THE ADVENTURES OF REX THE WONDER DOG #1 | DC | 1952

By Nick Richardson

Rex the Wonder Dog doesn’t get the credit he deserves for being a comic book pioneer. Arguably, he is the mutt who started the craze of super-powered animals when he first appeared in this book. Rex was a sweet yet serious pooch during WWII before receiving a super soldier serum because he was such a good boy. Fans of the era absolutely loved the character, helping bring the likes of Ace the Bathound and Krypto the Super Dog to legions of fans. Some may wonder why Rex isn’t better known, and that boils down to the fact that he wasn’t affiliated with a major hero like Superman or Batman. However, this good boy still has his fans out there, as one such fan recently dropped a mind-boggling $8,400 for a CGC 9.0! That’s an incredible jump from its previous all-time high-graded sale of a CGC 4.0 for $1,020 3 months to the day prior. These sales are few and far between, as we only have 2 graded sales in our database, along with just a handful of ungraded sales. Earlier this month, the most recent ungraded sale saw a nice net of $405 for an ungraded copy. Just incredible to see a book pulling in numbers like that, and he hasn’t even been in a movie yet! But that could change, as rumors are swirling that Rex is set to appear in DC’s Superpets sequel.

SHAKER: AVENGERS: SOLO #3 – BLACK WIDOW MOVIE VARIANT (1:15) | MARVEL | 2011

By Mr. Long/Short

A CGC 9.6 Avengers Solo #3 1:15 movie variant featuring Black Widow sold this week for a record price (for a 9.6) of $313. The high sale for this book in a 9.8 hit $720 in June of 2021 at the height of the comic boom. This ratio variant is extremely rare, with only 25 total copies on the census, 7 of which are graded at 9.8 and 8 of which are graded at 9.6. We have only ever seen six sales of this book since we’ve been tracking. Avengers Solo was not a heavily ordered book by retailers. Comichron.com estimates that there were only 11,530 copies ordered for issue #3, implying that only a few stores were ordering 15 or more copies. Black Widow is one of many characters that collectors seek rare covers for, including Magik, Emma Frost, Black Cat, and Catwoman, to name a few. Demand for her hard-to-find issues will likely keep this book on collector’s radars for the foreseeable future.

SHAKERTHE BATMAN ADVENTURES #36 – DC UNIVERSE LOGO | DC | AUG 3, 1995

By Matt DeVoe

Despite only running for two seasons, The Batman Adventures TV show remains to this day the definitive (and dare one say, perfect) Batman. Everything about the show was amazing and perfectly captured the caped crusader. However, the comic book series captured the comic market’s attention MUCH later. Notably, this series contains the first iconic appearance of Harley Quinn in Batman Adventures #12. Yet even that first appearance got little attention until the past 10 to 15 years. Lately, the overall nostalgia has added value to the other issues, especially this hard-to-find last issue. Yet, this week we’re covering the almost impossible-to-find DC Universe Logo variant. These logo variants were typically the last printing of the book and found in comic book packs, distributed by various retailers (including Toys R’ Us). Of course, dependent on these various circumstances, some are harder to find than others. This is one of those rare copies, selling for an incredible new high sale of $1,869 for a CGC 9.8. Fun fact, this issue features all 35 covers previous to this issue, including Batman Adventures #12, giving this a slight connection to Harley’s first appearance (second row from the top, second picture).

SHAKERS: CEREBUS #1 | AARDVARK-VANAHEIM | 1977

By The Professor

One of the most historically interesting independent comic book series is Cerebus the Aardvark. It was created by Canadian David Sim and ran from 1977 to 2004. The leading character (Cerebus) is a misanthropic anthropomorphic 3-foot-tall bipedal gray aardvark (born to ordinary human parents) and is a parody of Conan the Barbarian. The plot twists and turns within this longest-running independent comic book are as intriguing as Sim himself, who in the 1970s was an avid drug user. He consumed so much LSD he ended up hospitalized – an event he claimed inspired him to produce Cerebus for 300 monthly issues. Issue #1 is by far the most valuable issue and has an interesting “backstory” unto itself. The print run for this issue was meant to be 2000. As the story goes, many of these arrived damaged from the printer, while the vast majority of the others were mid-grade copies at best. Sim considered only a few to be in VF/NM condition, with him keeping the majority of these for his personal collection. There are no CGC 9.8 graded copies on the census, with only one graded 9.6. There are five 9.4s and nine 9.2s. The vast majority of graded copies fall within the 5.0 – 8.5 range. This past week we saw a CGC 8.0 come up for auction and sell for 9K, setting a new record in this grade by almost $1000. NOTE: Counterfeit copies flooded the market a few years after the first print originals and can sell for a premium (a recent VF ungraded copy sold for $317). There are a couple of tried and true ways to tell the difference – the easiest way is to check out the character, Floyd, on the cover. There is a “donut” shaped object obstructing his left arm. If you see a red “halo” ring around this donut shape, you have a counterfeit copy. First print originals should be all black, with no red halo. The other way requires you to be able to check out the splash page of Cerebus and the wizard. If Cerebus himself is filled in all black, you also have a counterfeit copy. He should be gray-scaled. See below for these examples:

SHAKER: CRIME SUSPENSTORIES #22 | EC | 1954

By Matt DeVoe

This past week was filled with new high sales from recent Heritage auctions. We’re covering a few of our favorites in this market report. One is this PCH favorite, Crime Suspenstories #22. It sold this week for a massive new high sale of $72,000 for a CGC 9.0. It’s clearly recognizable and frequently homaged. It’s a common misconception that this cover was used in SOTI (Seduction of the Innocent). While it wasn’t referenced within the book, it received a little more notoriety than that. Author Dr. Frederic Wertham used his book (SOTI) to lead the charge against comic books and believed that particular comic books led teens to become juvenile delinquents. At the time, America saw a considerable rise in juvenile delinquency, leaving political officials seeking a source (ignoring that the country was still recovering from WWII). Even J. Edgar Hoover claimed that comic books ” ridicule decency and honesty” and corrupted “susceptible” children. This led the Senate Subcommittee to determine if comic books needed restrictions. Of course, this was a massive infringement on the first amendment, yet the examinations proceeded. William Gaines, EC publisher, was called to the stand before the committee to defend his macabre and violent covers. One senator held up this particular issue and asked Mr. Gaines, “Here is your May 22 issue. This seems to be a man with a bloody ax holding a women’s head up, which has been severed from her body. Do you think that is in good taste?” Gaines replied, “Yes, sire, I do, for the cover of a horror comic.” The cross-examination continued, and the committee submitted its finding on March 14, 1955, with “this Nation cannot afford the calculated risk involved in the continued mass dissemination of crime and horror comic books to children.” Thankfully, the subcommittee rejected government censorship and concluded on only reining in content with strict regulations and formed the Comics Code Authority. Those strict regulations did stifle sales in such a significant way that did essentially censor comics. Comics not approved by the Comics Code Authority were banned by law and prohibited businesses from selling them to those under eighteen. Some states, like California, even flat-out outlawed the sales of horror comics. Gaines was effectively driven out of publishing comics and pivoted into his next creation, MAD MAGAZINE. Which continuously mocked politics and government.

SHAKER: THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH #14 – SANCHEZ – TUPAC HOMAGE (LIMITED 500) | IMAGE | 2021

By Cobra

While everyone talks about the latest music legend to grace a comic cover, looking at you Jack White, other iconic giants were appearing on covers long before this year. Biggie, Eminem, and Paul McCartney have been taking the spotlight these past few weeks. However, in December 2021, another icon broke records with their comic cover debut, Tupac. Perhaps in one of his most iconic photographs, Tupac poses for the cover with the Department of Truth’s trademark two X’s across the eyes (a nod to the various conspiracy theories surrounding his death). This issue was a limited cover, with only 500 copies hitting circulation. This book recently hit a new high a few days ago. A graded CGC 9.8 copy recently sold for $300! This is a $180 increase from its last sale in September of ’22.

SHAKER: EAST OF WEST #1 – DIAMOND RETAILER SUMMIT | IMAGE | 2013

By Matthew Glover Esq.

This Sci-Fi Western set in a dystopian America was created by Jonathan Hickman, and the art was done by Nick Dragotta. This book has been fueled by several factors: First is the rise in prominence of Hickman’s writing. This book was released before he became a superstar writer. Second, back in 2018, it was announced that Amazon had optioned and was in the process of developing this story for TV. Since that announcement, there has been very little news regarding where the project currently stands. Finally, this particular issue was limited and was a summit exclusive through the Diamond Retailer Summit. There were seven different covers of this first issue. The majority are reprints of the regular cover with slight color changes, with the first printing selling for about $10. This summit variant, however, had a high sell of $600 for a CGC 9.8 this week. That is a significant jump since the book had been trending at about $200 in a 9.8 for the past few years. Does someone know something? Or are copies simply drying up?

SHAKER: GREEN LANTERN #59 | DC | 1968

By Van Denby

Guy Gardner is one of many DC characters with a following, yet their books typically do not translate to big aftermarket sales. Hopefully, that changes, as this week saw an excellent sale of 9k for a CGC 9.8 copy. This book has been sought after for years by collectors as it is the first appearance of GG. Of course, finding such a nice NM copy is challenging, yet many ungraded copies on various grades also sold this week. Some of these ungraded sales were near similar to recent sales, and some were a bit higher. Many collectors and speculators overlook DC, but will that last into 2023? Proabably not.

SHAKER: GOOGLE CHROME | GOOGLE | 2008

By Matt DeVoe

So, any comic book can be a collectible. Case in point, this Google Chrome comic was written by Scott McCloud to explain “the inner workings of their new open-source browser Google Chrome. “Per his site, the comics were “designed as a printed comic for journalists and bloggers .”He notes, “I helped conduct interviews with about 20 engineers who worked on the project, then adapted what they said into comics form. Some paraphrasing, lots of condensation, and one or two late drop-ins, but basically, it was a very organic adaptation, and I had a lot of latitude.” Since this comic landed in the hands of non-comic collectors, this is significantly tough to find. While the highest sale for this book was back in April 2020 for $400, a recent ungraded NM copy set a substantial new high sale of $203. It’s important to note that ungraded copies are tough to come by. We’ve tracked only four sales versus the ten graded. The square-bound binding allows for higher copies than your traditional stapled comic, leading to an increased number of 9.8s, as seen by the 55 9.8s out of the overall 74 copies on the census.

SHAKER: NINTENDO POWER #111 – WITH POKEMON POWER #1 COMIC INSERT | NINTENDO OF AMERICA INC | 1998

By Keith Shimabukuro

With an upcoming feature Animated film and its own theme park land at Universal, Nintendo nostalgia is massive right now. With all things Nintendo trending, Nintendo Power magazines have been doing very well in the aftermarket, as we’ve written up on issues #1#6, and #20 in past weekly Market Reports. We even covered Nintendo Fun Club News #2, which was a precursor to Nintendo Power. Starting with issue #111, Nintendo Power released Pokemon Power inserts for six issues. These mini-issues contained strategy guides for Pokemon Bue or Red and a comic featuring Ash and Pikachu’s early adventures. Pokemon first started as a video game for the Gameboy handheld system in February of 1996 and has evolved into a multi-media powerhouse, most notably as the highest-selling trading card game of all time. The first authentic Pokemon manga was Pokemon Pocket Monsters, published in November 1996. Collectors have taken notice of this Nintendo Power magazine that included Pokemon Power #1, with one of them dropping $130 for a ungraded copy on 1/13/23. It’s hard to go wrong when a collectible contains such iconic brands as Nintendo and Pokemon.

SHAKER: PLANET COMICS #40 | FICTION HOUSE | 1946

By Cobra

Golden Age, science fiction comics, are always a pleasure to write about. Planet Comics was a series produced by Fiction House, running for 73 issues from 1940 to late 1953. Debuting only two issues prior (#38), Mysta of the Moon continues her galactic adventures by going toe-to-toe with the chameleon men from Galaxy 9. Murphy Anderson, Lily Renee, Lee Elias, and Fran Hopper deliver six pulse-pounding stories from deep space. A CGC 6.5 of this golden-age beauty recently sold for a new high of $895. This is over a $300 increase from its previous sale in November 2020. Why such a significant time gap between sales? According to the CGC Census, only 55 graded versions of this book exist. Of those 55, only seven are graded at 6.5. I can only imagine that the one person that owns the only copy of a graded 9.6 will hold on to it for the foreseeable future. However, I look forward to covering the new high sales of any copies of this book graded above a 6.5!

SHAKER: PUSSYCAT #1 | MARVEL | 1968

By Matt DeVoe

This rare book features cover art from Marvel legend Bill Everett. It almost feels like a modern-day cover from pulp artists like Bruce Timm. Yet Bill went off the Marvel grid of typical superhero fare to create this sultry “swinger.” Bill was a founding father of Marvel, creating the likes of Namor (with MARVEL #1) and co-creating Daredevil. He’s an integral part of Marvel lore that should not be overlooked. His “curvey cutie” (as noted on the cover) just hit a new high sale from Heritage at $5,040 for a CGC 9.6.

SHAKER: THE RIFLEMAN #10 | DELL | 1962

By Matt DeVoe

One thing we love about the comic community is its overwhelming lack of maturity and high sense of humor. So much so that this unintentionally suggestively placed wood is enough to make it valuable. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Little did actors Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford know that the most popular image from their acting careers would be this “mysterious” log comic cover. Regardless, this week’s surge of big Heritage sales included this week’s HUGE new high price of $1,680 for a CGC 9.0.

SHAKER: ROBIN #1 – 2ND PRINT NEWSSTAND | DC | 1990

By Nick Richardson

Gee willikers, dear readers, someone just dropped an incredible $2,600 for a CGC 9.8 copy of this book! This a stunning sale considering the last CGC 9.8 of this book that sold topped out at $765 back in September of 2022. While at this point, newsstand copies made up roughly 15% of total sales for a book vs. direct editions, the CGC census has more newsstand second print copies at 75 (with 10 9.8 copies) than direct edition second prints at 25 (with 3 9.8 copies). This book does have a couple of things going for it, as it features several first appearances like that of Shen Chi and Lynx. It also was the debut of prolific Batman writer Chuck Dixon and came with an awesome Neal Adams poster that dang near everyone hung up on their wall. That made CGC blue labels tougher to come by as it was considered incomplete without it, much like Amazing Spider-Man #238 without its tattoos. Ultimately, this book is relatively rare and coveted, but there is a market for everything. If a fan had the cash to make it happen, more power to them!

SHAKER: STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE #1 – 2ND PRINT – ARTHUR ADAMS | MARVEL | 2023

By Nick Richardson

This book quickly became a fan favorite as it features a cover that Star Wars collectors love. A snarling depiction of Darth Maul that’s incredibly similar to his appearance in THE BAD BATCH. Not only that, it is a Qi’ra-centric book of SOLO fame. She has a rich backstory that is developed in real-time and has fans’ interest. Enough interest warrants a second print, a B&W version of the 1:50 Arthur Adams variant. It’s quickly become the book to get thus far, seeing the highest sale across all printings of this issue. Recently, a ungraded copy sold for $180, surpassing the previous high sale of a reported 9.4 NM copy for $56. It’s still early, but rumors have been swirling that the future is bright for Qi’ra. Writer Jon Casdan revealed he has spoken with Jon Favreau about seeing the character introduced in THE MANDALORIAN, coincidentally with season 3 right around the corner. Before that, rumors were flying that Qi’ra and Crimson Dawn, another main focus of this book, would be the main protagonists in BOOK OF BOBA FETT. The point being she has a fair amount of momentum behind her!

SHAKER: SUPERMAN / BATMAN #4 – MICHAEL TURNER – GERMAN VARIANT EDITION – PRINTER PROOF EDITION (LIMITED 50) | DC | 2004

By Matt DeVoe

In 2004, DC reintroduced a modern version of Kara Zor-El and simplified her complicated post-crisis character. Michael Turner’s art greatly complimented the issue. So much so that the interior art was reused as the cover for this german reprint of issues #7 and #8 of the Superman/Batman series. We’ve previously highlighted how difficult this issue is to find, especially in high grades. As the foreign market expands in aftermarket popularity, this reprint’s spotlight has only grown. However, it was widely unknown that this 499 print run included a VERY rare printer-proof run of fifty copies. A printer proof is an initial prototype to test how the cover design and colors will look once professionally printed. These first fifty copies looked good enough to keep and move forward with the additional 449 copies. The only noticeable difference is on the back. All copies on the regular print run are hand numbered (which is why it always received a qualified green label) as the copy number out of 499. The printer proof displays the copy number with PP next to it. One of those rare copies showed up this week and quickly sold for $699 ungraded!

SHAKER: TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN #1 – HAL LAREN – SIMPLEMAN’S COMICS – COVER A (LIMITED 450) | IDW | 2020

By Nick Richardson

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird returned to the drawing board, bringing a story to life they had been sitting on for 25 years. The community loved it, many seeing ‘their’ iteration of the Turtles’ stories progressing. Well, at least one of them. With the mystery surrounding who the Last Ronin was, fans hopped on board and devoured everything they could. That includes this fantastic variant cover for issue #1 from Hal Laren, limited to only 450 copies. One of those copies went through CGC, securing a highly coveted 10.0 before reaching the aftermarket and quickly selling for $990. Being 1 of 80 variants, this book has been lost in the shuffle, with only one graded sale in our database. While this book was released in the magazine square bound fashion and had a high chance of securing a high grade, a 10.0 is still incredible. To put it in perspective, only 49 books have secured that grade across 80 variants and thousands of submissions for this first issue!

SHAKER: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #21 | DC | 1946

By Nick Richardson

Looking at the cover, one would assume that Superman would SMOKE Batman in a game of basketball. Like, it wouldn’t even be close. Superman is a high-flying sharpshooter, while Batman is a low-swinging monster in the paint. But, you know what else is high flying? The most recent ungraded sale for this book! A reported 6.5 ungraded copy just sold for an astounding $1,725! A high flying sale compared to the last time it sold in that grade as a CGC 6.5 back in 2020 for $528. Some might say a sale comparable to the two DC icons on the cover. That most recent ungraded sale is comparable to the last CGC 9.2 sale in 2018, which came in at $1,920! Obviously, the cover is what catches the eye, but the lucky fan who secured this book also got a neat little piece of history. Aside from becoming an iconic “high-five” meme notoriously used across the inter-webs, this was also the first time Bob Kane’s signature was not included in a Batman title, per his contract with DC. Artist Win Mortimer included his signature in the Batman story, but not Bob Kanes! An odd factoid for the brain.

NEW FEATURE! – As noted last week, we recently added a new feature for New Releases where you can now filter by the highest estimated value or by percent growth. It’s an easy and quick way to see what is trending before you head to your LCS on Wednesdays! You can also look back at every other week in the past couple of years and see what books have shaped up to be the most valuable. It’s a fun tool that’s easy to get into some pretty hefty price guide wormholes. Let’s check out this week’s top selling books!

 

NEW RELEASE SHAKER: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #14 – 2ND PRINT – ED MCGUINNESS – B&W (1:25) | MARVEL | 2023

By Matt DeVoe

When it comes to a character’s first appearance, collector’s all want the rarest cover that also features excellent art. The market has deemed that this 1:25 2nd print is THE book to own when it comes to the first appearance of Hallow’s Eve. Trending at $50 to $60 before release, this book caught on instant fire when copies hit $125 and kept climbing to its current FMV of $180 ungraded. It’ll be interesting to see if this price holds.

NEW RELEASE SHAKER: BATMAN/SUPERMAN: WORLD’S FINEST #11 – JACK WHITE III – COVER D | DC | 2023

By Matt DeVoe

Clearly, this sneaky book was the hottest cover of the week. Most retailers and collectors glazed over the name “Jack White III” as the artist… until they realized this was not just any artist. It was Jack White of the White Stripes! Not only that, but it also features him on the cover and closely resembles the aesthetic and design of his recent concert posters. This is another “musicians on comics” scorcher that’s been trending lately. Already creeping to 200 aftermarket sales in just three days, it will most likely be on our Top 10 next week. While this saw an ungraded sale of $104, recent market flooding has dropped it to its current NM FMV of $55. With that said, sales don’t appear to be slowing down.

NEW RELEASE SHAKER: NIGHTWING #100 – GEORGE PEREZ – ART BOARD DESIGN – FOIL (1:150) | DC | 2023

Whether it’s Geroge Perez’s art, the shiny foil, the immense challenge of finding a copy, or the fact that Dick calls Batman “Dad” for the first time, this 1:150 is trending at double ratio of $300. That’s VERY rare for a high-ratio cover to perform so well. Typically, these fall well below ratio. Another one to watch!

NEW RELEASE SHAKER: NIGHTWING #100 – DAN MORA – FOIL (1:100) | DC | 2023

Another shiny cover at a challenging ratio that’s also overperforming past expectations. This 1:100 is a nice clean representation of Nightwing and trending over ratio at a current upgraded FMV of $175. If it’s just Nightwing calling Batman “Dad,” then maybe “the feels” can help retain its value.

Whatnot books are not easy to find at stores and are clearly easier to find on the live-auction app. However, there is market demand for this Adventures of Link homage as the few copies sold are trending at an ungraded NM FMV of $56. Finding them, even on Whatnot, will be your quest.

RUMORED/OPTIONED COMICS

 

RUMORED/OPTIONED: BITCH PLANET

Per Above The Line, “Matt Fraction, Kelly Sue DeConnick Ink Big Overall Deal With Amazon; Sex Criminals and Bitch Planet Shows in the Works.” Both series have already started moving copies off online marketplaces. The cheap copies have been moved, and higher prices are replacing them. The rarest editions of these series will be challenging to find and will sell for a premium. Fun note: Bitch Planet has a very subtle, yet hard-to-find, logo variant. The top right-hand corner features an alternate Image logo with the Image “I” in a circle with stars on the left and right and the words “Image Comics.” The standard issue features just the Image “I” on its own. It’s a minor difference, but it could be a fun book to look for if you’re picking up the standard issue (we’ve never seen a sale, yet a few copies are currently listed).

WHAT THE WATCHER IS WATCHING

 

WATCHING: YOUNG AVENGERS #6 | MARVEL | 2005

By Matt DeVoe

As we gear up for ANT-MAN: QUANTUMANIA, it’s clear that Cassie Lang will take on the role of Stature in the film. While Cassie’s first appearance goes WAY back in Marvel Premiere #47, her first appearance as Stature was in this Young Avengers issue. The trailers for this film hint at Scott Lang’s demise. While we hope this isn’t true, Marvel is cleaning the slate a bit to make way for new (and younger) heroes. This issue’s current NM FMV of $25 seems cheap and is the one book we’ll be closely watching as we exit theatres on this film.

KEY OF THE WEEK: AMAZING FANTASY #15 | MARVEL | 1962

By Matt DeVoe

This first appearance of Aunt May (oh, and Spider-Man, Uncle Ben and Flash Thompson) hit a slew of new high sales this week, including a new high of $810K for a CGC 9.2, obliterating the previous high of $598K in 2019. As they say, it takes money to make money. Whoever owned that $598K made a cool $212K in just a few years.
