Blind Adam's Hidden Gems Vol. 75

Greetings to my Comics Heating Up and Awesomesauce families. Thank you everyone for reading this each and every week. Before we make money with comics, I have a few thoughts. With all the Venom hype, don’t forget to speculate on the Venom hologram trading card (available on eBay) , there is a sweet 3D hologram card that came in the MarveL Universe Four Series. Daredevil #598, Amazing Spider-man #795, Green Lanterns #40 were all reads of the week. Lucifer is #awesomesauce, Tom Welling as Kane is just great, Maze is hot, Ella is hot, Lucifer has hot ladies and you can’t teach that. Now lets make the money with some comics.
1. Adam Hughes Slayboy Sketchbook 2010 (available on eBay) – Adam Hughes is #awesomesauce. Convention sketchbooks are an untapped source of speculation. Most of these sketch books are limited in print, have great sketches, and are worth the buy in. I really like the Catwoman stuff in this edition $40
2. Harley Quinn #1 Adam Hughes Mexican Variant (available on eBay) – can’t afford the 1:25 American verson of the Hughes Harley Quinn, well you can get the Mexican edition or half the price just a great way to get a desired variant on the cheap $30-60
3. Penthouse Comix #2 (available on eBay) – sexy Adam Hughes artwork that is all $5-15. Hughes did a lot of early work for Penthouse.
4. Marvel Age #129 (available on eBay) – Adam Hughes cover. Marvel Age issues are a great speculation play and this needs more love $2-5
5. X-Force Megazine #1 (available on eBay) – reprints New Mutants #98, first Deadpool, and it is easy on the wallet $15-40
6. Wolverine Origins #25 (available on eBay) – ends the Deadpool story and leads into the 2008 Deadpool series. It even reprints New Mutants #98 this is super cheap $5-20
7. New Mutants Annual #5 (available on eBay) – New Mutants plus Rob Liefeld equals money
8. X-Force #1 (available on eBay) – I now think after the Deadpool trailer that all the X-Force #1’s should be pulled out of dollar boxes. There is a Shatterstar card, a Cable card, a Deadpool card, and I want to submit this as Deadpool’s true second appearance (it is on Tony’s old list as second appearance) as he has a file page at the end and not just a trading card $1-10 sets go higher
9. Amazing Spider-man #300 Walmart Variant (available on eBay) – Venom-manina is running wild brother, not sure how I feel about the trailer yet but Venom is hot. ASM #300 is king and this reprint, which is a Walmart promo, is a great, inexpensive way to obtain this classic Spidey book $20-40
10. Spectacular Spider-man Annual #12 (available on eBay) – Venom appearance nuff said
11. Nightwatch #6 (available on eBay) – low printed Venom appearance. Everyone is chasing Lethal Protectors and ASM appearances, but who in there right mind is chasing Nightwatch #6? I put in the toughness of Kid n Play #9 (available on eBay) . Dig in
those dollar bins people $10
12. Wizard Magazine #17 Platinum Edition (available on eBay)  –  giving credit to Topher S., the true first appearance master himself. This ties for first image of Harley Quinn. Early Wizard Magazines are in dollar boxes and this is a must for Harley Quinn apeprances $10-20
13.  Wizard Dark Book #1 (available on eBay) – Carnage cover. Carnage vs Venom on the big screen can’t wait $10
14. Web of Spider-man Annual #8 (available on eBay) – Venom appearance nuff said
15. Amazing Spiderman Annual #26 (available on eBay) – first solo Venom. Thanks to everyone in the comments for last weeks hidden gems for pointing this out. All the annuals for this year had venom apperances so happy hunting $5-10
16. Fame Lady Gaga FCBD #1 (available on eBay) – remember Bluewater productions and their biocomics? I do and some of them still make decent money like this Lady Gaga comic, Lady Gaga is #awesomesauce $5-10
17. Avengers #4 JC Penny Variant (available on eBay) – with DCU variants getting love with Canadian price variants getting love what about the JC Penny Variants avengers movie in may classic cover first silver age Captain America cheap reprint great addition to any collection or investment box $20 and up
18. Justice Society of America #12 (available on eBay) – first appearance of Black Lightning’s daughter. This is the first mainstream DCU appearance of her as she first appeared in Kingdom Come #1 (available on eBay) . Both are classic issues and Black Lightning’s daughters.
19. Rick and Morty #30 Blank Cover Variant (available on eBay) – it is convention season, time to get sketches. Well this Rick and Morty is perfect for it. It was exclusive to Frankies Comics and was limited to around 1,000 copies. It is perfect for sketches of Summer or Rick giving Ronald McDonald the finger. $20 and up
20. Sandman #50 Platinum (available on eBay) – Neal Gaiman is #awesomesauce. Thanks to him for help in my braille reading, getting better every day. American Gods is in braille, but betweent that and Lucifer, I am a bigger fan of Lucifer and was surprised to see this platinum edition of a key Sandman comic $50
love you guys see you next week time for dinner

  1. I literally pulled a spec spidey annial #12 out of my box in order to list. Perfect timing. I also realized that 3 of the 5 New Mutants #14s i own are Canadian price variants. That is the one benefit of collecting comics in Canada.

  2. I just dug out my Venom Marvel Universe holo card. Still in perfect NM/M shape, along with all the other hologram cards from sets I, II and III.

  3. That wolverine origins 25 I believe is so underrated. I mean it does feature a cool cover with deadpool and Wolvie on it and I believe at the time it was the 1st ever exact reprint of deadpool 98.
    I believe this book will get some love real soon!

  4. Great list ! ! ! I just found Nightwatch #5 and #6 in a dollar box a little while ago #5 has Venom also. There’s another title that came out around the same time called Wild Thing that has both Venom and Carnage in the first two issues.

  5. I did not know there was a Penthouse Comix let along that Adam Hughes did a lot of the early artwork. I grabbed issue #2, but the cheapest one available at the moment was $19.95 in NM.

  6. Great list! Love AH! Art. And great talking to you the other day Adam. Very good dude, look forward to the next one. #awesomesauce!

  7. Just so people don’t get confused Wizard 17 came out later.
    And the NM Annual 5 is his first work on NM, definitely undervalued.
    Nice list as always man!
