Thanks to Wiley S. in the comments for this tip and this one is a bit of a surprise. Dredd Underbelly sold out quickly a little while back and shot up in price due to the small print run and the demand, in part due to speculation and in part due to it’s rareness. Well, here we go again. Continue reading “Dredd Underbelly 2nd Print: A comic heating up”
Here is one to look for this week. One that TFAW, Mycomicshop, and Midtown are not even listing. Continue reading “24 #1 from IDW sold out a week before release, and print run”
Arrow has been superhero TV done right. Not like Agents of Shield. Sure both have introduced comic characters to their respective shows, but Arrow gives us Summer Glau dressed in a Ravager outfit, and a peek at a prison bound Harley Quinn, and Shield gives us a Deathlok in a chest protector.

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – email@example.com
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.

With almost everything Guardians of the Galaxy heating up, the focus has been honed to a microscopic level on characters who will be in the movie. One character that will be in the movie, which has not gotten much attention is Korath the Pursuer. Continue reading “More Guardians of the Galaxy Spec: Korath the Pursuer”
It is no secret that Mark Millar is focused on movies, Marvel’s and his own. He has been essentially releasing comics to be made into movies. He has had some success with ‘Wanted’, ‘Kick Ass’, and ‘Kick Ass 2’. Next up seems to be ‘Secret Service’. Fox previewed first looks of the Secret Service movie at Cinema Con 2014. Continue reading “CinemaCon 2014: Fox offers first look at Mark Millar's 'Secret Service'”
From our friend Dakoit over at http://comicbookspeculation.blogspot.com/. Make sure to check out his blog for more back issue spec.
With recent discussions on message boards of the white-hot desirability of new Amazing Spider-Man variants by J.Scott Campbell and Image variants (Bunker, Zero) by relative newcomer Fransciso Francavilla, I just had to do a post discussing another artist who is a great personal favorite of mine, and who I feel has also seen re-emergence of late whilst flying under the proverbial radar. Recently providing gorgeous variants of his own, including high profile titles such as Fantastic Four, Guardians of The Galaxy, Dejah Toris and too many others to list, it is surprising that Mr. Art Adams has not come up in the same conversations as among the hottest cover artists today. Although Mr.Adams has been drawing comics for almost 30 years, his pages and covers never looked better. Each visually stunning and contemporary, the line-work intricately executed and more sharper than ever before. Mr. Adams really does seem to get better with age.

The Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list is an excellent source for spec-ing. It shows the books retailers are going back to reorder.

What ever the reason, these are the books store are going back and getting more copies of. Here is the Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list for 3/31/14 Continue reading “Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list for 3/31/14”
