2023 MARKET UPDATE: PRICES SOFTENING BUT INTEREST VERY STRONG
The next generation of X-characters is sure to include Wolverine's daughter, and while this book has come off the top of the market, it's still turning over briskly.
It's a hold if you own it.
2022 MARKET UPDATE: DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE
The all-time record sale for NYX #3 in CGC 9.8 is not too far off. With the most recent sale flirting with $1,900, that is virtually double what it was a year ago!
The story is reflected in all the other grades. Most have doubled in the past 12 months. I could see this book breaking out of its all-time high of $2,260 by next year. If New Mutants #98 can do it then this certainly can.
You can expect it to double again if the MCU announces a Marvel TV series featuring X-23.
2021 MARKET UPDATE: CLAWS FOR CONCERN
There are not many places to go when you drop to #99 on the 100 Hot Comics list...
A recent CGC 9.8 sale flirted with $1K and returned a fair percentage year-on-year.
I love that people are stupid enough to pay $300 for a CGC 6.0 of a book from 2004!
IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:
Here's the bottom line.
2020 MARKET UPDATE: PRICES MOVING SIDEWAYS IN MOST GRADES
This is a pretty tough book for a modern issue, about as scarce as Batman Adventures 12.
A few lower sales can make it look bad, but it is holding its value pending some more action in the Wolverine universe.
We declared this a tie for 53rd place with Vampirella #1!
I would hold this book if you already own it. But your money is better invested elsewhere if you haven't got one yet.
2019 MARKET UPDATE: CGC 9.8 HAS SHOWN GAINS
If you took my advice and held NYX 3 last year in CGC 9.8, then you did okay. Other grades, not so much.
There are simply too many modern books around to let your standards slip. People rushing in at CGC 9.4 or 9.2 are the ones who have the most to lose.
2018 MARKET UPDATE: HOLDING WELL, ONE FOR THE FUTURE
This book has bucked the trend of movie-out, prices-down. So we are confidently predicting a solid HOLD.
It's still currently more valuable than New Mutants #98, which is hardly surprising -- NYX #3 is much rarer.
Don't buy below 9.4. Recent sales:
2017 MARKET UPDATE:
(SPOILER ALERT!) With the death of Wolverine in the Logan movie, all eyes are on X-23 as the future star of the Wolverine franchise.
As expected, prices went crazy just before the movie came out. But unexpectedly, sales have continued to be strong, as speculation of X-23 in future movies is rife. Still a good time to invest? We believe so.
Everything Wolverine is red hot now. Several of the books on the Hot 100 list are key Wolverine comic books, including the following:
Incredible Hulk #180
Giant-Size X-Men #1
NYX #3 is definitely among the most in-demand modern books. It's fascinating to see what happens to prices of relatively common books like this when demand goes crazy.
Insist on a CGC 9.8 with white pages, ignore all the crazy stuff that's hard to price like CGC Signature Series, and you should do well over time.
