Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – First ever appearance of Harley Quinn – Click to Buy/Bid

Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – The first appearance of Harley Quinn. This comic features the “animated” version of Harley and not the actual “continuity” Harley Quinn” within the DC Universe. There are approximately 14+ or so books before she ever appeared within the confines of the actual DC Universe. Here are some of those early appearances (listed below).

Batman Adventures: Mad Love #1 (1994) – Second “non-continuity” Harley appearance.

Batman Adventures Annual #1 (1994) – Third appearance and legend John Byrne actually pencils a Harley Quinn story here. How great is that???!!

Batman Adventures #28 (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #1 (1995)

Batman Adventures: Holiday Special (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #8 (1996)

Batman and Superman Adventures: Worlds Finest (1997)

Batman Chronicles Gallery #1 (1997) – Harley made an appearance in the regular DC Universe with a pinup in this comic before the next book listed here.

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – Here is the first official Harley Quinn entry (appearance) into the DC Universe. Also an origin issue. A modern day classic cover; Alex Ross.

Batman No Mans Land Gallery #1 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance is very much like her first. In a gallery book. So this means that this comic is not really recognized as her second appearance in the DC Universe, very much like her first appearance.

Batman #570 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance. Many collectors are hoarding these away for a future gauntlet throw down to maximize their potential earnings. Not an easy book to get.

Detective Comics #737 (1999) – The third appearance of Harley Quinn.

Action Comics #765 (2000) – Harley steps out of a Batman comic universe for the first time. This comic is also the first time she appears in the same book as Superman. A definite collectors item here and it’s an affordable book too!

Harley Quinn #1 (2000) – 7 years after her debut into the comic book world, Harley finally gets her own title.

Wonder Woman #164 (2001) – Harley in the same comic as Wonder Woman for the first time. A ridiculously gorgeous Adam Hughes cover as well.

Batman 613

Batman #613 – Click to Buy/Bid

Harley Quinn #4 (2001) – First appearance of the Quinntets.

Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War #1 (2001) – This comic not only possess a great story, but it also marks the first time Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti get their creative Quinn popped. Amanda and Jimmy are THE go-to when it comes to Harley Quinn and this is their first work on the character.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Jokers Last Laugh Secret Files #1 (2001) – A couple of months later, Amanda and Jimmy do a backup story in this book. The beginnings of the Quinn/Conner/Palmiotti threesome. A Threesome that will become a monthly romp in about 13 years.

Batman #613 (2003) – During Jim Lee’s epic Batman run, he penciled Harley into the Hush story line. He got her right on the cover too. When a talent like Jim Lee draws any character for the first time, it’s time to take notice.

Harley Quinn #38 (2004) – Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard pencils the final issue of Harley’s first comic book run. Nice way to go out right? With Charlie at the helm and a low print run, this makes for an attractive comic.

Suicide Squad #1 (2011) – This comic is essentially Harley’s first appearance “post Flashpoint” and the character in the movie will be in direct correlation to THIS particular time frame. Hence the high mark selling points in the aftermarket. Her second appearance came a week later in Batman #1 (2011).

Suicide Squad #6 (2012) – The origin of Harley Quinn. The first of two parts. Two major comics for ANY Quinn collector. Great cover too.

Suicide Squad #7 (2012) The origin of Harley Quinn concludes. Another stellar cover.

DC Comics Every New Series Of 2013 Number Ones Sales Figures

DC Comics Every New Series Of 2013 Number Ones Sales Figures

2013TopDCComics

Market report and year summary by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com

DC Comics had an incredible year during 2013.

In total they had 65 new #1 issues released including ongoing series, mini-series, one-shots and re-numberings.

They also featured 11 annuals and 10 entries from 2nd printings.

This chart only covers Jan-Nov as the Dec sales figures are not yet released until the new year.

Here we list and rank all of them and show the diverse and successful year that Image had.

This chart shows the sales figures for every issue released during 2013 of any new series started in 2013.

Injustice Gods Among Us was the most prolific new title with 11 issues released during the year.

Five high profile new series debuted with sales over 100,000 copies each.

Justice League America #1 was the best selling comic book of 2013 with print run over 300,000 due to 54 different covers.

Harley Quinn #0 was the highest selling comic of the year not reliant on a number of variant covers.

This chart not only shows what sold well and what didn’t but it also is very useful to see which books have kept their sales figures up and are likely to be the books that in the next year stay hot and could potentially rise in value.  The main ingredient is constant and steady sales OR better yet increasing sales month to month. (The later is very rare in the comic business)

It is very common for #1 issues to be ordered higher than subsequent issues but after a few issues if the title is truly popular sales should level out.  In the past this has happened to successful titles such as Batman.

But in 2013 there are no clear winners in that category.

Retailers usually get it right!  In most cases they order the right amount of product.

Once in a while they over order a product making the book virtually worthless in the secondary market.

The rare occasion retailers under order a title since they don’t know what to expect with a new series and these are the books that always have the secondary market price gains.

This year that happened to:  Injustice Gods Among Us.   The hottest DC back issue series of the year was predictable as sales started low with #1 and #2 before gaining each month.   Sales actually peaked with #6 which is almost unheard of.  In fact sales of #11 were still higher than that of the #1 debut issue.    This translated into higher prices for back issues as demand kept growing and stabilizing.  Injustice #1 sold only 20,000 copies and only ranks as the #47 best selling first DC issue of 2013.

The Wake #1 started out much stronger with 44,000 copies and then dipped predictably with #2 but sales actually started to increase with issue #4 and have stayed strong helping the early issues all go to 2nd printings.

Trinity Of Sin Pandora #1 saw very small drop in sales by issue #2 showing instantly that the demand was stronger than expected causing sellouts of the first 2 issues and reprints and a price gain on those 2 issues as well as the print run actually grew by #3.

Batman Lil Gotham featuring Batman and Harley Quinn had fairly small orders for #1 and sales stabliized for issues #2 and #3 before increasing for #4.

While sales have not grown “Constantine” has had stayed more consistent than most titles and it has dipped slowly with later issues.

He Man And The Masters Of The Universe #1 has shown small drops in orders and has stayed fairly strong still having about 60 percent of its original orders as late as issue #8.

Collider #1 opened fairly weak at only 15,000 but sales have stayed at actually fairly strong for the small numbers and has only dipped 33% after 5 issues and a name change to FDP.

The rarest new series of 2013 from DC was “Insurgent”.  Quietly debuting in January to sales of only 7500 copies and quickly dropping so rapidly that #3 did not even chart selling less than 4000 copies and DC even cancelled the issues after #3.

The Wake (Directors Cut) #1 had a low print run of only 5300 copies which is one of the rarest DC #1’s of the year and could prove to be more valuable in the future if the interest in the regular series stays strong.

The other rarer new #1 of 2013 was “Time Warp” a sci-fi one-shot with sales under 10,000 copies featuring big name creators.

Tom Strong mini-series barely passed 10,000 mark and dropped almost 50% by the end of the 6 issue run.

While its common for a new series to lose up to 30% of its initial order from #1 to #2 its more important to see if sales stabilize or continue to drop after issue #3.    Some big droppers in sales and not likely to show increases in the future include:

Larfleeze (down 60%), Adventures Of Superman (down 65%), Threshold (down 70%), Movement (down 70%), Green Team (down 80%), Katana (down 70%).

DC released 11 new #1 Annuals in 2013 and the best selling by far was the Batman and Robin Annual #1 hitting 52,000.

The rarest new DC Annual of 2013 was Injustice Gods Among Us with only 19,000.

The best selling non-superhero DC #1 of the year was Sandman Overture with a hefty 93,000.  The #2 ranking new series was The Wake with 44,000.   Constantine came in with 37,000.  Coffin Hill and Hinterkind both came in with a decent 21,000 each.

Most Valuable Comic Books Made in 2013 and 2012

The first online comic book price guide specifically for 2013 published comics.

This is a very clear look at what the most valuable single issue mass produced regular cover edition comic books of the year and their current values.  (Note prices may have gone up or down throughout the year).  These are current prices as of this date.

How many of these comics did you predict would be valuable?     Due to the increased demand in small print run comics from Image in 2012 many speculators entered the collect/profit comics world and therefore actually hurt the chances of current comics going up in value.  So far in 2013 only 20 different comics published out of 4,000 are worth $10.00 or more !

Notice the drastic difference in the list of most valuable comics from 2012 – there are 3x as many comics on the list and many more valuable ones that are still in strong demand.

Image has 6 of the most valuable comics of 2013

Image has 35 of the 59 most valuable comics of 2012 – that is 60% of all valuable comics of that year!

All comics are regular cover editions and 1st printings (unless noted otherwise)
