DROPPED OUT OF LIST
2022 MARKET REPORT: TURN AROUND BEING SEEN JUST IN TIME
I drew up this year's Hot list at a time when all sales of Spotlight 32 were lower, and things looked gloomy. I even considered relegation!
If I had checked today, then this would be much higher on the list. So don't give up just yet on Jessica.
My 9.8 grade gained $1K from last year.
2021 MARKET REPORT: NEW RECORD SALES IN UPPER GRADES!
There is a phenomenon occurring in the female Marvel comics characters world. As well as the expansion of all things Spider-related, female superheroes are hot this year.
Record sales for Spotlight #32 are proof that Spider-Woman has a big future in the MCU.
IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:
Here's the bottom line.
2020 MARKET REPORT: MODEST GAINS IN A WIDER RANGE OF GRADES
There is no real news about Spider-Woman, but Spider-ANYTHING is usually a good bet for speculation.
It's mildly hotter than last year due to the interest in different grade levels, with VF and higher seeing small gains.
If and when Spider-Woman gets a movie appearance, or a TV series, Marvel Spotlight 32 will take off rapidly. Until then it remains a cautious hold rather than a must-have hot buy.
This is a common book, so don't fall into the price compression trap around 8.0-9.2.
2019 MARKET REPORT: NEW ENTRY ON THE HOT 100 LIST!
Marvel Spotlight 32 is the first appearance of Jessica Drew, the original Spider-Woman.
Female Spider-characters are hot in general, following rumors of a spin-off from Marvel male Spider-characters, with the first Spider-Gwen also in the 100 Hot Comics list in Edge of Spider-Verse #2.
This book is pretty common. It shows up in almost every collection from the era, usually between FN and VF/NM.
Thanks to the new interest in books of a similar theme, like Amazing Spider-Man #210 (1st Madame Web) and What If? v2 #105 (1st Spider-Girl), this book is now worth certifying as low as CGC 9.0.
Back in October, I wrote a newsletter about this topic, and at the time CGC 9.8s of Spotlight 32 were selling for an average of $1,167.
Already a few months later, the average is $1,340, while lower grades have not done as well. CGC 9.6 has actually fallen during the same period.
So I am going to stick with my recommendation of buying a CGC 9.8 with White pages.
Here are the most recent sales.
