2017 MARKET UPDATE:
There are barely any sales. Ever. Probably not as stony cold as, say, Preacher #1...
The problem, then, is that Cerebus #1, a cool, rare and amazing book from the Bronze Age of comics, never deserved its place on the Hot 100 in the first place.
Let's just begin by saying that this really ISN'T a hot comic at all! There is barely enough inventory in the world to have a turnover of sales.
That said, it's a book that should be on your radar, and you ought to buy a nice-looking CGC copy if an opportunity arises.
Cerebus is a cult figure. This was the first really successful underground 'hero' comic book and it's certainly got potential as a long-term investment. The census-topping 9.4 recently sold for $9,000.
Note that a counterfeit version of this book exists. It's nothing to concern yourself with if you're buying it in a CGC holder, as CGC is well aware of the book's existence -- and counterfeits are actually worth owning too.
