2017 MARKET UPDATE: NEW TO THE LIST!
With only 100 books, any "must-buy" list is going to be controversial. We received plenty of questions about the omission of ASM #1 last year. Most went something like, "WTF?!"
Truth was, when I first compiled the list, ASM #1 was in a little bit of a price slump. It isn't enough for a book to be in demand. To be truly hot, I want to see lots of price increases, and ideally above average for that book.
This is a true blue-chip Marvel mega-key. But this year has seen those price increases, so it's on the list. One to buy and hold, and hold, and hold. Don't expect 10 percent year-on-year.
