Why Daredevil #1 is a Hot Comic


Not quite true! But pretty close. We promoted Daredevil #131 to the 100 Hot Comics list this year, thanks to Bullseye being an anti-hero in the TV series.

But apart from that and a few other exceptions, Daredevil is not shaking off its reputation as a second-string Marvel Silver Age title.

Still, sales of #1 have been hot this year, with strong gains seen at many levels. There has been a general sense of searching for value, as the super-keys have become too expensive for many casual investors.

Here are some recent sales. Lower grade levels have keep this book high on the hot list.

  • CGC 9.4 $22,500
  • CGC 9.0 $9,000
  • CGC 7.5 $4,300
  • CGC 7.0 $3,700
  • CGC 6.0 $2,500
  • CGC 4.5 $1,500
  • CGC 3.5 $1,225
  • CGC 2.5 $1,075
  • CGC 1.0 $465


This book is STILL an under-valued key issue, despite the DD series being extended, and while it's certainly more common than other Marvel #1s from the 1960s, it's becoming harder to find at affordable prices.

The white cover does make it genuinely tough in higher grades. Try to find one that presents well from the front and which is free of stains and dust/sun shadows.

  • CGC 9.6: $35,850
  • CGC 9.2 $10,000
  • CGC 9.0 $8,880
  • CGC 8.0 $5,000
  • CGC 7.0 $3,300
  • CGC 5.0 $1,500

Marvel's Daredevil TV series dragged this comic book kicking and screaming into the limelight.

Sure, only a handful of back issues have value (including the origin and first appearance of the Purple Man in Daredevil #4, and Daredevil #168, 1st Elektra) also on the Hot 100 list), but there is no doubting Daredevil #1 is a Marvel mega-key.

It's still relatively affordable, too, so unlike, say, Incredible Hulk #1 or Amazing Fantasy #15, those on a limited budget can actually afford a decent-looking copy.
