Comic Store In Your Future – 25 More Hot Comics From Captain Atom to Eternal Warrior

Rod Lamberti of Rodman Comics writes weekly for Bleeding Cool. Find previous columns here. He writes: Here is the latest 25 hot comics list.

A few surprises for me this time.  I did not know the New 52 Green Lantern #20, the first appearance of Jessica Cruz is going for $25 online. I made sure to put one of our copies up online for sale.  It even beats out the older first appearance of Kyle Rayner from Green Lantern #48 from 1994. Poor Kyle, always second to someone else now.

Captain Atom #42 from 1990 is currently clearing $20. Death from Sandman's first appearance in a main DCU book.  I never knew that. I most likely passed up many chances to get a copy for a dollar over the years. Now I want to actually check out the comic.

A few no brainers on the list. With Natalie Portman announced as the next Thor on the big screen Jane Foster as Thor is in demand. From the first story of Jane Foster being Thor from What If #10 from 1978 to Thor #1 from 2014 when Jane becomes Thor in the main Marvel Comics Universe those issue are very popular.

Marvel Comics Presents #6 is still kicking butt for a comic almost a month old.

Hopefully you have some of these or all of these in your collection. If not and if you are hoping to find a copy perhaps your local comic store has a copy.  Captain Atom 42 before I typed this up would have gone to our dollar bin so there are possible great deals out there.

Good luck and happy hunting.
