Why pick Captain Marvel 17, when half the books on the 100 Hot Comics list could end up being related to the Captain Marvel movie that's due out in a couple of months now?
We could literally fill an entire price guide with related issues.
According to the CGC census, this is a hotter comic than Marvel Now! Point One #1 and Ms. Marvel (2014) #1. Point One is approaching $500 in CGC 9.8, but Ms. Marvel #1 2014 is a dead duck at this stage of the pump-and-dump cycle.
Not really surprising that some are falling by the wayside, given the choices of investment comics for the Ms. Marvel movie.
You should not overlook some of the better vintage comics, such as:
Some make it to the hot list. Others are also-rans and you should not spread your net too widely. Especially considering the pattern of 'keys' sinking after a movie hits the cinemas.
Examples of books which died a death after the movie hype went away include Iron Man #219 (1st Ghost, antagonist in Ant-Man and the Wasp), Avengers #55 (1st Ultron) and Aquaman #29 (1st Ocean Master).
Look for the highest grade example you can afford. Remember that the difference between a CGC 9.8 and 9.4 is the same as the difference between a 9.0 and 8.0 -- pretty significant.
Modern books are far more often looked after from new and in near-perfect shape. You really should not let your standards slip below CGC 9.4.
This is an expensive book though. This may work in your favor when other minor keys like Point One are dropping like a stone come July.
