Speculator's Corner: Buying Up Spider-Man's Nightwatch

Today, Bleeding Cool ran the rumour that the Marvel character Nightwatch will be appearing in the upcoming Sony movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. All his previous appearances can be found on the Marvel Unlimited digital reading service and on ComiXology.

But if you are the speculatory sort and fancy an investment, here's where to go, and how much you can expect to pay.


The first appearance of Dr Kevin Trench is Web Of Spider-Man #97 published by Marvel in 1992.  And recently selling for $1.35 on eBay.


He also appears in Web Of Spider-Man #98, also $1.35.


He makes his first appearance in full Nightwatch costume in Web Of Spider-Man #99 – also $1.35.


And yes, he totally looks like Spawn.


And we get his origin story in Web Of Spider-Man #100 – also $1.35, though you might have to pay around $2-$2.50 elsewhere.

He would then appear in Web Of Spider-Man Annual #9 , Spider-Man Unlimited #2 and Web Of Spider-Man #103-#106, as well as Spider-Man Unlimited #14. All around the same price.


He then got his own series, 12 issues worth, named simply Nightwatch. They are even cheaper, issue 1 just going for $1, and the whole set recently selling for $3.

He also popped up in Morbius The Living Vampire #29 and, bizarrely, Beavis & Butthead #10. Again, all selling for chicken feed.

The character then returned in a new format in the legal comedy She-Hulk Vol 2 as Kevin Trench in the Nighteater storyline of She-Hulk #2, #4, #6, #11 and #12. That may cost a little more, but you can still pick up issues 1-12 for $18 the lot.

Basically, if you want the entire appearances of Nightwatch, you can get them for around $30-$40.

If you buy them now that is. Good luck…
