Hot Comics – The One Hundred Dollar Club March 2012

Hot Comics – The One Hundred Dollar Club March 2012Earlier we looked at comics published in the last thirty years that have been selling for over $200, raw, unslabbed, without variant covers or signatures to push them up the ranks. Here's a look at those selling for between $100 and $200… and there's a lot of Walking Dead, Goon and Hellboy about…

Walking Dead #5 by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore from Image Comics recently selling for $171

Walking Dead #19 hitting $170 – that would be the first appearance of Michonne pushing this one up so high.

Hellboy CBG 4 Page Supplement selling for $169.50 – ripped from the pages of the Comics Buyers Guide and selling rather nicely.

Walking Dead #3 gets $162.50, up from $115 in November.

Dime Press #4 featuring early Hellboy for $162, down form November's $200

New Mutants #98 with Rob Liefeld's first Deadpool goes for $160

Ultimate Spider-Man #1 from Bendis and Bagley garners a tidy $155, well up from November's $100. Could a new TV series be helping?

Invincible #1 by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker sells for $152.50, up from November's $114. Imagine if this had a TV series?

Cursed Pirate Girl #2 with its reduced print run sells for $152.50, down from November's $200.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2  gets $152.50, up from $100 in November. The power of a new TV series there…

Maxx #3 Ashcan Blue – and I may have one of these from a UK convention sells for $150

Slow Jams #1 by the Facebook hundred-re David Choe sells for a relatively small $150

Walking Dead #4 gets a natty $142.50 – there must be some collectors out there with thousands in a small longboc that have completely skipped them by.

Walking Dead #2 Second Print sells for $135 – as if to prve a point.

Miracleman #24, the final issue by Gaiman and Buckingham sells for $130

Miracleman #15, by Alan Moore and John Totleben, usully the most valuable comic of the series now goes for the same price, for $130, down from $140 in November.

San Diego Comic Con Comics #2 with some early Hellboy gets  $125

Cursed Pirate Girl #1 with it's still far-too-small print run sells for $111, down from $190 in November.

GI Joe Special #1 with its ignored McFarlane art sells for $110

Walking Dead #5 is back at $110

Wolverine #1 by those Claremont and Miller fellow sells for $110

The Goon #3 brings up the rear at $100

Grimm Fairy Tales #2 shows the rarity of a second issue by clocking up $100

Coheed and Cambria: The Second Stage Turbine Blade sells for $100. Something to do with music, I seem to recall.

Incredible Hulk #377 third print, of which there were only a few thousand, and mostly eaten up by newstand distrubution, sells for $100

Sonic The Hedgehog #1 from Archie grabs $100 worth of gold rings.

And that elusive final issue of GI Joe #155 sells for $100. Exactly where it was in Nove,mber. At last, a little consistency…
