Hoknes Comics Hot 200 comics for late July

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of http://www.HoknesComics.comhoknes@hotmail.com

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 usually listed unless they have heated up way above the potential initial high price for them). 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. Usually books ranking highest in the top 40 are books that have made jumps in value since the very last chart. These are the books that are likely increasing at this very moment. Books ranking from #41-100 are usually big sellers and have recently jumped in the past months but have not climbed since the last chart. Any comics ranked below the top 100 used to be hot books and do have a high value but are no longer expected to climb in value so be more cautious hunting those books out. Data can get outdated quickly so I always suggest you look at ended sold auctions at http://www.ebay.com to see what the most recent sales prices are on any listed books. (If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know) Continue reading

One to Watch: Imperium #7

Divinity was one of the most popular new mini-series for the year, and not just from Valiant. Many people skip over mini-series for speculation, but end up missing out because of the mentality. We reported earlier that a second Divinity mini-series would be coming out in the fall. But the story is continuing before then. Continue reading
