Why Action Comics #252 is a Hot Comic

2017 MARKET UPDATE: SUPERGIRL IS NOT SO SUPER

With the interest in Teen Titans, this character is still potentially on the up and up, but sales this year are softening.

I still think it's a good value proposition right now.

  • CGC 7.0 $6,500
  • CGC 6.5 $3,800
  • CGC 6.0 $3,200
  • CGC 5.5 $2,600
  • CGC 5.0 $2,200
  • CGC 4.0 $1,200
  • CGC 3.0 $930
  • CGC 2.0 $650
  • CGC 1.0 $430

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

While the Supergirl TV series got a lukewarm reception, this character isn't going away, thanks to all the DC cinema action coming up. Teen Titans is certain to appear, and will probably feature this blonde heroine.

Low-grade copies are fairly common, and much of the reason for the drop down the Hot Comics list is a sense that investors can afford to wait for better copies. However, the high sale of an 8.0 is a very good sign for the scarce upper end of the market.

  • CGC 8.0: $16,500
  • CGC 6.5 $4,780
  • CGC 6.0 $3,100
  • CGC 5.5 $2,550
  • CGC 5.0 $2,045
  • CGC 4.0 $1,500
  • CGC 3.0 $990
  • CGC 2.0 $925
  • CGC 1.0 $460

In a word... Supergirl. The hottie from Krypton is coming to the big screen, and her first true appearance is on fire in all grades. (See also Superman #123, Supergirl tryout issue, also on the Hot 100 list.)

We are extremely bullish on the value of this book. Not only because the JLA and Teen Titans movie franchises have a chance of running for a decade or longer, but because in general, when compared to their Marvel counterparts, DC Silver Age key issues tend to be tougher to find, and under-valued in the market.

There are plenty of dogs available. Be a little pickier.

When it comes time to sell, you want a fresh, nicely-presenting book which is above average shape, with off-white or white, supple pages. These will sell well.
