Why Edge of Spider Verse 2 is a Hot Comic

Edge of Spider Verse 2 is one of several books on the 100 Hot Comics list to benefit from movie mania this year.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, despite animation not being everybody's cup of tea, is a big hit in the movies, and many of the first editions of the characters have seen increases in value.

Most notable of these is Ultimate Fallout #4, also on the hot 100 list, the first appearance of the protagonist Miles Morales, but there are lots of others. Most have begun to fall back due to profit taking.

Spider-Gwen has a wider appeal though. Spider-fans have always had a soft spot for Gwen Stacy (just as Peter Parker has), and this crossover into her role as a superhero is sure to endure where others (Spider-Man Noir, Peter Porker Spider-Ham) will not.

There are two versions to consider when deciding what to invest in, and they are really totally different propositions, as we will see in a moment.

What to Invest In

Let's start with the regular edition. Remember that the most important aspect of supply and demand is demand -- a large supply does not affect prices, as New Mutants #98 has proven.

CGC 9.8 copies have been driven up to the $500 mark. The most recent sale was $485 (pity the poor soul who paid $600 in January 2019).

I certainly wouldn't pay more than $485 for a 9.8. If you're patient, then you will probably find one for nearer $400.

I would not recommend any other grades either. Modern books are so common in high grade (there are over 1,600 CGC 9.8s in the census) that it doesn't make sense to lower your standards.

As for the variant edition by Greg Land. There is an entire sub-community dedicated to collecting variant covers.

Here are some recent selling prices. You'll have to decide on your budget: I don't mind lower than 9.8 for these rarer variants.

  • CGC 9.8 $2,200
  • CGC 9.6 $1,357
  • CGC 9.4 $920
  • CGC 9.2 $650
  • CGC 8.5 $811 (!!)
