As a comic book historian I love keeping track of stats.
So I thought it would be interesting to keep a solid log of every single comic that goes up in value.
This calendar is a log of every comic that suddenly becomes hotter and jumps in value with an actual date.
This list should be continually updated and I hope others will add any comics that I may have missed.
Over a period of time we can look for trends and make interesting comparisons
Here is the 2014 Hot Comic Calendar

Larry from larryscomics.net has been speculating for a long while now. He used to do a weekly newsletter that was awesome. I am glad the he stops by to give us his pick of the week:
I thought COWL #1 had too many “talking heads”
Trees #1 is obviously part of a graphic novel, thus a limited series.
Those two Image titles are “bellybutton picks”
Everybody has one of those on their list.
I’m going to roll with:
(W) Jonathan Hickman (A/CA) Leinil Francis Yu
WHAT DID HE SEE?
WHY? It’s the 1st appearance of a character that has “it”
It, being: monster speculator potential.
Not going to spoil. Buy one. Read it.
You’ll fall in love…

The Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder List is a great speculators tool. It shows what books comic shops are going back and ordering more of before the final order cut off. These are books that have heat behind them due to a current storyline, chatter in the shops, chatter on blogs and message boards, desired variants, or reprints of recently sold out comics. Here is this weeks:
