Comic Store In Your Future: 25 Hot Back Issues And Not Just Star Wars

Rod Lamberti of Rodman Comics of Ankeny, Iowa, writes weekly for Bleeding Cool. Find previous columns here. And it's time for one of his rummages through his comic store's back issue stock, what is selling and for just how much.

2021 is seeing a lot of hot back issues. Star Wars is blazing hot currently. I could have typed up a 25 hot Star Wars list by itself. People that have been collecting Star Wars comics for years may easily have comics worth hundreds of dollars. Star Wars issues with first appearances are very heavily in demand. I know our back issue stock of Star Wars has been bought like there is no tomorrow. Star Wars Dark Horse issues are almost all gone here. So without further delay, here is 2021's first Hot 25 comics.
