Why Green Lantern 76 is a Hot Comic

2019 MARKET UPDATE: A BRIGHT LANTERN IN THE DC DARKNESS

I hope you kept the faith with GL#76, because it's one of the few DC comics this year to return a decent result.

Though by pure chance, CGC 9.0 is a loser! Bah.

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.0 2018 $1,750
  • LAST SALE $1,334
  • PERCENT CHANGE -24%

I'd like to defend this book a bit! That outcome was extremely unlucky when you compare to other similar grades:

  • CGC 9.6 $12,000 (vs. $5,850!)
  • CGC 9.4 $3,250 (vs. $3,000)
  • CGC 9.2 $2,100 (vs. $2,300)
  • CGC 9.0 $1,334
  • CGC 8.0 $840 (vs. $775)
  • CGC 7.0 $477 (vs. $415)
  • CGC 5.0 $237

It looks like the action happens at 9.2 and above. Either way, if you're not in this book already, then I hesitate to recommend buying one now.

DC Comics characters are lagging behind Marvel. There are better options for your cash.

2018 MARKET UPDATE:

This book is up and down, though there is enough interest in the classic Neal Adams book to keep it in the top half of the 100 Hot Comics list.

There isn't a ton of action to report. Some record sales, a few softer prices. Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.6: $5,850
  • CGC 9.4 $3,000
  • CGC 9.2 $3,300
  • CGC 9.0 $1,750
  • CGC 8.0 $775
  • CGC 7.0 $415
  • CGC 5.0 $235

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

This is one of the all-time biggest LOSERS affected by the implosion of Bronze Age prices in the early 2000s; that doesn't affect its status as an all-time mega-key issue, or prevent it from being a good investment opportunity NOW!

Some big-ticket sales recently have proven support once again, and Neal Adams continues to be a hot property.

  • CGC 9.6: $7,000
  • CGC 9.4 $3,580
  • CGC 9.2 $2,175
  • CGC 9.0 $1,500
  • CGC 8.0 $720
  • CGC 7.0 $520
  • CGC 5.0 $400

Hal Jordan first appeared in Showcase #22 (also on the Hot 100 list) and is the Green Lantern in the DC Universe continuity. It's a no-brainer why the book is hot.

All the DC movies are going to feature crossovers of the classic Justice League of America characters, so even though the Green Lantern movie was not popular, there's a great chance Hal Jordan is not done with the silver screen just yet.

This book is also red hot because Neal Adams is the artist of the moment, and this is THE Adams issue and title. The original cover art for Green Lantern #76 just set a record for Adams art, selling for over $400,000.
