Invincible time! Tomorrow, Skybound's Comics Vault Live returns as Shawn "Big Clutch" Kirkham delivers his very first stream of 2022 after causing a whole lot of excitement in the collector community with surprise Invincible #1 drops in partnership with Whatnot (the secret lovechild of eBay and Twitch). And so it's no surprise that the very first CVL of 2022 features a new Invincible #1 silver foil variant. that will be CGC graded 9.8 and priced at $99.99, though we've told you that CVL variants often resell for much more. Add in the fact that this is limited to only 150 graded copies at debut – the rarest Invincible drop in CVL history – and you can expect a lot of collector interest.

For some comparison to previous CVL variants, the Invincible #1 Black Foil recently sold for $280, while the Red Foil Variant came in at an "affordable" $199. But the aforementioned interest in Big Clutch's recent Invincible drops with Whatnot may indicate even more excitement for any variants of this debut issue, with a raw copy of the Omni-Man variant hitting $500. We'll find out more tomorrow, January 21st, at 4pm PT, 7pm ET or midnight GMT when Comics Vault Live returns with a new stream (that you can RSVP for right here) also featuring new The Walking Dead Deluxe drops, along with a special TWD homage cover to Image's monster hit Stray Dogs: Dog Days #1 by series creator Tony Fleecs.
