Marvel will ‘relaunch’ their Inhumans brand. Not a serious revamp or anything like that, just a way to get them back into the mix….again. Check out Inhumans Prime #1 and see where their headed. Written by Al Ewing with art by Ryan Sook.  Oh yes, the X-Men are going through the same process this week. in X-Men Prime #1. Written by Marc Guggenheim and pencils by Ken Lashley.
Remember the old oversize Marvel Treasury Edition comics back in the 70’s? Those were the best comics ever. Literally larger than life. A comic bigger than your entire head. You were able to wrap the comic around your torso if you wanted. Boy, those were fun times. We’re showing our age, but now your kids (if you have any) can experience the amazingly large panels/larger than life Marvel Treasury Edition this Wednesday; Guardians of the Galaxy All-New Marvel Treasury Edition. Collecting a bunch of Guardians stories and a new Sara Pichelli cover. Buy this, get nostalgic, share the magic with your children.
While Marvel Man-Thing fans will get their fill with the latest issue, Man-Thing #2 will feature another original R.L. Stine secondary story. That is the keepsake with these new Man-Thing comics. Unfortunately, Man-Thing will not sustain his new life offered from Marvel (unless this is a limited series, which we are not aware of), so enjoy his time here now and really enjoy the new (non-Man-Thing) stories as well.

Lobo finds his way back and into Harley’s Little Black Book #6. Comic book power couple Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner at the helm here with artist Simon Bisley.
Batgirl Annual #1 finds Supergirl and Batgirl teaming up.

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY FEBRUARY 2015

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY FEBRUARY 2015

HotComics201502Early

This chart is styled like the old classic Wizard Magazine Top 10 Hottest Comic charts that were published every month in the 1990′s.

This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

(If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know)

MARKET REPORT:

#1 EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2 (MARVEL 2014) 1st app of new Gwen Stacy Spider-woman had a high print run of 50,000 but yet still sold out with sales continuing 3 months in a row now up as high as $100.00. 1:25 ratio variant cover now up to $350.00. A new ongoing series debuts Feb 2015. 2nd printing released in October also sold out instantly with sales also up to $15.00 each for Marvel’s hottest new character of 2014. 3rd printing in Nov 2014 sold as high as $15.00 each. 4th printing also sold out and up a bit. Literally thousands of copies sold instantly above cover of the hottest Marvel comic of 2014.

AMAZING SPIDERMAN #700 DITKO VARIANT (MARVEL 2012) Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly was hotter than normal.
