Which Books Are in the Hot 100? And Why is There No Index?

Actually there IS an index. But you'll have to get to #1 on the list to see it (and #-1 to see the bonus content and special offers, as a thank-you for making it all the way to the end!).

We know the temptation would be there simply to skip ahead to the top few books on the list. We don't want you to miss out on the 90 other books that we've spent days researching prices, sales data, historical values, and the reason they are suddenly hot.

This list is 100 opportunities to make money when you buy and sell comic books, with careful choosing of books, and timing to resell them.

Each comic book on the hot comics list has an explanation section telling you WHY you should care about it, and invest your money in a copy. We also pick a CGC grade that is optimum for potential return on investment.

As to which books are hot, well, you'll just have to click the arrow and get started! There will be some no-brainers on the list for sure, but (we hope) more than a few surprises...
