Hot Comics – The Three Hundred Dollar Club – August 2015

Here are the comics published within the last thirty-odd years that have been burning up the top of the charts and selling over $300. All raw copies, no slabbing here, no variant covers, no convention exclusives, no hardcovers, no TPBs, no artificial collectibility, just the standard books available to anyone that, if you have them in your collection, could pay your rent for a few months. All data taken from successful sales on eBay.

As always there are winners and losers…

The Walking Dead #1 – $1375, also the same.
