2017 MARKET UPDATE:
There's cold. There's popsicle cold There's a polar's bear's butt cold. There's Mr. Freeze cold. And there's Avengers #144 cold!
It barely clings to its place on the Hot 100 due to the high grades still having life in them, and a fair amount of activity. Otherwise it would have dropped off like the stone it has become.
Repeat after me. DO. NOT. BUY. THIS. IN. GRADES. BELOW. CGC 9.6.
Okay. If you've been paying attention to the rest of our Hot 100 list, you'll have noticed a trend. Movie or TV + comic books = investment opportunity.
Jessica Jones (the Marvel TV series), whose first appearance in Alias #1 is on this list, is just one of the properties responsible for all this comic book speculation.
Bronze Age Avengers comics aren't especially exciting from an investment perspective. There are only a couple of issues I always ask to see, including Avengers #196 (first Taskmaster) which is also on the Hot 100 list.
They are pretty common books, but in high grade not easy to find.
That goes double for Avengers #144. I never see this above a VF. It's a tough book.
