Why Tales to Astonish #27 is a Hot Comic

2018 MARKET UPDATE: 'ANT' YOU GLAD YOU GOT IN WHEN YOU DID?

This book would be right up there on my under-valued top 100, as it's still cheap compared to other Marvel keys of the period.

Some strong sales have been seen across the mid-grade range, and there is plenty of upside in this book still, especially with the new Ant-Man and the Wasp movie coming out soon.

  • CGC 6.0: $4,400
  • CGC 4.5 $3,000
  • CGC 4.0 $2,000
  • CGC 3.0 $1,150
  • CGC 2.5 $1,150
  • CGC 2.0 $1,200
  • CGC 1.8 $800

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

Considering how important this book is in the history of Ant-Man, it's not bought and sold very often. It does seem scarcer than other early 1960s Marvel books: we see Incredible Hulk #1 about as often, if not more so, than Tales to Astonish #27.

There have been no high-grade sales of note since last year's list, and the lack of turnover is what led us to drop this book down the rankings. It's still hot, and a great investment.

  • CGC 6.0: $4,400
  • CGC 4.5 $3,000
  • CGC 4.0 $2,000
  • CGC 3.0 $1,150
  • CGC 2.5 $1,150
  • CGC 2.0 $1,200
  • CGC 1.8 $800

Anybody who saw last year's Ant-Man movie can't have failed to be impressed with the awesome job Marvel Studios did with what was supposed to be a B-list character.

Great casting, a really fun and funny script, just a hint of teasers for The Wasp in a probable sequel...

Look out for the related Tales to Astonish #44 (1st Wasp), also on our Hot 100 list. You should also consider the first Ant-Man in costume in Tales to Astonish #35.

TTA #27 is expensive. Some of the prices have just come off the top of the market. I predict a new spike if and when the sequel gets the green light.
