2023 MARKET REPORT: IN A FALLING MARKET, YOU CAN STILL BE A HOTTIE
Prices of the regular edition of this book have come off about 20 percent.
Prices of the newsstand edition are holding firm.
Prices of the variant comics have set new records, with a CGC 9.8 breaking the $40K barrier. That's a truly massive result, and shows the enduring appeal of Miles Morales.
It's this year's hottest book. One to watch.
2022 MARKET REPORT: PRICES DOUBLE, AGAIN!
Miles is here to stay. That's what the market is saying, and if you look at the sales achieved since last year then it's pretty hard to argue against this conclusion.
$28K for the variant. That's REAL money. I was feeling pretty good about the 63 percent gain last year, but this year has shattered that record.
Should you sell or should you hold? I want to point out one small detail. There are 155 copies of the variant comic certified at CGC 9.8 alone (out of 669 total). It's NOT RARE.
2021 MARKET UPDATE: MILES OF PROGRESS IN PRICES THIS YEAR!
Unbelievable! Miles Morales is clearly a big fixture in the future of the MCU, and prices have gone nuts on both the regular and variant editions of this book.
We have decided to report both regular and variant edition sales moving forward.
IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:
Here's the bottom line.
I went to see Spider-Man: Edge of Spider-Verse with the kids and didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. There were tons of great moments, and the supporting cast of alternative universe Spideys was powerful.
But it was Miles Morales I enjoyed watching the most. I heard mutters and grumbles from the dealers writing their Overstreet market reports about the increased diversity of the Marvel Universe, and they may have a point.
But throw enough mud against the wall and some of it is sure to stick.
I'm certain we have not seen the last of Miles, and I for one would go and watch another movie with him as the protagonist.
In my book, that makes his first appearance worth holding long-term.
As with several other comics on the 100 Hot Comics list, this book comes in two versions, and you should really consider them to be different comic books altogether.
Variant comics are huge business these days, but investing in them is not for the feint of heart. Nobody is really sure how many of each issue exist, for example.
And while Amazing Spider-Man #667 Dell'Otto variant keeps appreciating (rapidly), others have fallen in value as high sales flush out more copies.
First, the easy part. If you're looking to buy an Ultimate Fallout 4 regular edition, then you're looking at CGC 9.8. Period.
Most recent sale was $305 against a year-high of $420. Be patient and you will probably find one for $275 before long. I don't mind a bit of a price drop, it just makes the investment better long-term.
Now for the variant cover. Here are the most recent sales. I can't really advise you on what to buy, if anything, beyond what you can afford, and don't be silly and get tempted by a CGC 7.0 or something.
Based purely on the recent sales, 9.4 looks like a steal.
