Why Marvel Spotlight 32 is a Hot Comic

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 YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.8 2019 $1,506
  • LAST SALE $1,545
  • PERCENT CHANGE +2.5%

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.

Recent sales:

  • 9.8 $1,545
  • 9.6 $390
  • 9.4 $204
  • 9.2 $128
  • 9.0 $144(!)
  • 8.5 $102
  • 8.0 $135(!!)
  • 7.5 $100
  • 7.0 $76

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.

What to Invest In

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.

  • CGC 7.5 $64
  • CGC 8.5 $100
  • CGC 9.0 $175
  • CGC 9.2 $290
  • CGC 9.4 $245 (!)
  • CGC 9.6 $350
  • CGC 9.8 $1,275
