Why Avengers 47 is a Hot Comic

2021 MARKET UPDATE: THE ENDLESS KNIGHT OF COVID

Apart from a really aggressive CGC 9.8 sale in January 2021, there wasn't a lot to get excited about for this book in the past 12 months.

Like so many movie speculation books, the coronavirus has put the Eternals movie on hold, and we're going to have to wait -- patiently or otherwise -- for things to move for us.

Our chosen grade appreciated a mere 5 percent.

Recent sales:

  • 9.8 $5,050

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.2 2020 $546
  • LAST SALE $565
  • PERCENT CHANGE +5%

This book is essentially the poor man's Avengers #48!

Avengers #48 is when Dane Whitman becomes the new Black Knight, who is the love interest of Sersi in the upcoming Marvel Comics Eternals movie.

Kit Harrington (Jon Snow of Game of Thrones) has signed to play the character, and there is speculation that the popularity of the actor will lead Marvel Studios to extend the Black Knight from the Eternals into other movie series.

If that is true, then both Avengers 47 and 48 will be long-term holds -- there is nothing like repeat custom in the MCU to make a book appreciate in value!

What to Invest In

There is a hint of desperation around some of the asking prices on eBay for Avengers #47, but if you're patient and hang on for the right book then you will surely find a good one.

Here are the most recent sales:

  • 9.6 $2,055
  • 9.4 $780
  • 9.2 $650
  • 9.0 $650(!)
  • 8.5 $438
  • 8.0 $325
  • 7.5 $305
  • 7.0 $205
  • 6.0 $123

Don't be the person paying 9.2 money for a 9.0. Impatience is the enemy of putting your money into the right book at the right time.

A CGC 9.0 is not a terrible investment, but don't over-pay. If you can, wait for the 9.2 to come along, ideally with white pages.

Avengers #48 is the better bet in my opinion. Unless the MCU expands Dane Whitman's non-Black Knight persona in some unexpected way.
