Why Tales to Astonish #44 is a Hot Comic

2018 MARKET UPDATE: 

Ant-Man and the Wasp is due out soon, just one of the upcoming Marvel movies having an impact on comic book prices.

Wasp is a hot character in both senses of the word. Her inclusion should make this movie the latest in the humorous Marvel movies, and add a love interest which was missing from the first storyline.

There have been no super-high grade copies sold in the past year, but steady increases in most grades. Here are recent sales.

  • CGC 8.5 $4,700
  • CGC 7.5 $2,750
  • CGC 7.0 $1,675
  • CGC 6.5 $1,200
  • CGC 6.0 $800
  • CGC 5.0 $670
  • CGC 4.0 $390
  • CGC 2.5 $230

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

The big news is a new record high-grade sale of this book in February 2017. No matter what happens lower down the grade scale, it's always exciting when a book sets a new highest ever sale.

Wasp was a founder member of the Avengers original team. She is far more important than her current status in the Marvel Universe dictates. Sales of Tales to Astonish #44 have started to reflect this, at last.

  • CGC 9.6: $26,290
  • CGC 8.0 $3,100
  • CGC 7.5 $2,300
  • CGC 7.0 $1,700
  • CGC 6.5 $1,200
  • CGC 6.0 $800
  • CGC 5.0 $750
  • CGC 2.5 $330

It's no surprise that the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have shaken up the values of some long-undervalued Silver Age key issue comics. This is one of them.

Anybody who watched the Ant-Man movie all the way to the credits will have seen the reason for this book's super-hot status. The Wasp was introduced as a future character in the series in an extra post-credits sequence. This is her first appearance.

A tough book above FN grades, so be patient and pick a good-looking VF- to VF copy.
