2021 MARKET UPDATE: WARLOCK WEAKENS
A very disappointing year for Adam Warlock fans. While this is technically not his true first appearance (see FF#67), it's still a big late Silver Age comic, and one that ought to get more love than it is right now.
Like so much of the MCU, Warlock seems a very long way off right now.
Thor 165 is just one of many Adam Warlock comics which have taken off lately.
If the character interests you and you see a big future for HIM! then I suggest you consider some of the following books as well:
Fantastic Four #66 and #67 | Incredible Hulk #178 | Warlock #1 (197x)
He looks sure to play a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This is a market of two halves. Lower-grade books have actually plateaued, and are probably best avoided.
Most black comic book covers are much more appealing in VF or nicer.
I dug into selling prices and settled on CGC 8.5 as being the sweet spot. It's gone up in value more than the 9.0 (in percentage terms) in the past two years, yet the investment is $300 less than the 9.0.
Higher than 9.0 the prices get scary. You might buy an 8.0 instead if you are short a couple of hundred dollars.
Here are the most recent sales.
