 Archie, Oct-82  1st Appearance Of Cheryl Blossom
#1 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: In June 2020 a 9.4 CGC sold for $1465 and a 5.5 CGC in October 2019 for $200. First appearance of Cheryl Blossom! This mega key Price Variant is really tough to find in higher grades and rarely comes up for sale. Very early CPV Cheryl Blossom appearances are great investments.
Ben notes: Note that Archie only introduced direct editions much later, so for earlier Archie issues like this one there was only newsstand distribution and thus two total types (the two different cover priced newsstand versions) instead of three; one thing this difference means is that the percentage of total copies that are the CPV is much higher when compared to Marvel/DC CPVs.
Doug notes: 1st appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in Dare to be Bare = 5 page-s;
CGC label note: 1st appearance of Cheryl Blossom. 75¢ cover price.

▲ $250
 Marvel, 3/1984  1st Appearance of Storm Shadow; Silent issue
#2 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: The few copies that sold in 2020 were all record-breaking prices! Raw mid-grades selling for $500-600! This book will continue climbing in price given the history and importance behind the creation of this issue as Larry Hama briliantly needed to recreate the wheel to meet a last minute deadline!

Conan notes: Example variant sales at MyComicShop: a raw 3.0 on 8/13/2020 for $130, a raw 3.5 on 10/29/2020 for $198

Amazing Spider-Man 238 Canadian Price Variant picture $0.75 $510
▲ $35
 Marvel, 3/1983  1st Appearance of Hobgoblin; Came with Tattooz
#3 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: Rumors are circulating that the Hobgoblin will be coming to a theatre near you but most probably after Spider-man 3. In 2020 the following grades sold for breakout prices: 4.0 CGC for $160 in October; 5.0 CGC for $335 in July; 9.2 for $800 in March; 9.8 in March sold for $4650 becoming the highest amount paid for any CPV on a public auction only to have this price shatterered once agian a few months later in November when a second copy sells in another public auction for $7800. This has become a must have book for the serious C.P.V. collector and/or investor. A double cover in 9.4-9.4 CGC has been confirmed to exist!
Ben notes: Classic cover contender. Also refer to my prior note in this separate blog post »
Conan notes: Example variant sales at MyComicShop: a raw 2.0 on 3/20/2020 for $80, a CGC 8.5 on 12/26/2019 for $350
Jon notes: Amazing Spider-Man #238 is not incomplete without Tattooz. It was printed in a standard, old fashioned way, independent of the Tattooz inserted later, just like many other in-house or paid advertisement inserts from any era. I believe this problem originates from the fact that the comic’s cover mentions Tattooz, as does the cover to Fantastic Four #252(3/83). Ideally, the Tattooz ARE absent due to the slow degradation of the contents that will eventually effect the paper quality inside. Overstreet listings are confused, forced to respond to CGC’s myopic view. Once upon a time, I called Bob Overstreet and told him that the FF #252’s Tattooz were being used as ASM #238’s Tattooz and that the cure was to list them as same value, which he agreed with and subsequently did so. Collectors aren’t sure what to believe and that’s how the myth is perpetuated, the myth of being incomplete without Tattooz. At some point, although my original note remains in the guide about the switching of Tattooz between books, this was changed back to the original mistaken listing (including the explicit mistaken statement that NO Type 1a Canadian variants exist with Tattooz) with two values, with and without Tattooz. The FF #252s are listed in Overstreet #48(2019) at $8 with Tattooz and $6 without in NM-, and ASM #238 is listed at $170 with and $80 without in NM-, a discrepancy that highlights this dilemma, with Tattooz worth between $2 and $80 for the same item. All any grading company would have to do is say ”no Tattooz” on the label and have a blue label, leaving it to the collector to decide on the relative importance of its inclusion. There is little difference between the mistaken use of the term ”Canadian Edition” for Type 1A variants and insisting books without inserts are incomplete; thankfully the misidentification of “Canadian Edition” now reads “Canadian Price Variant.” Any real NM- or better copy should be taken seriously with or without the insert. Tattooz were inserted in Amazing Spider-Man #238 and Fantastic Four #252 and advertised on the covers; Captain America #279(3/83) and Star Wars #69(3/83) were all given Tattooz inserts without any advertising on the covers. Because neither of the latter books are considered incomplete without the inserts and would receive CGC blue labels, it stands to reason that ASM #238 and FF #252 are not incomplete without Tattooz either, as the books are complete, having been printed in a standard way, independent of the Tattooz that were then inserted. The only difference is the ads on the covers, and those are irrelevant as they are part of the cover of the comic book.
Paul notes: 75¢ variants of this issue did indeed come with Tattooz included; book is considered incomplete at CGC (green qualified label) if absent — read Jon’s note as well, regarding CGC’s treatment. A VF- Amazing Spider-Man #238 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $160 in 2018
CGC label note: 1st appearance of the Hobgoblin. Manufactured with “Tattooz” insert & sample. 75¢ cover price.
 
Saga of the Swamp Thing 37 Canadian Price Variant picture $0.95 $375
▲ $75
 DC, 6/1985  1st Appearance of John Constantine
#4 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: This book has been on everyone’s radar for good reason and so has the price. In 2020 the price for this issue has been everywhere: 9.0 CGC sold for $356 in April , 9.2 CGC sold for $550 in October , 9.6 sold in January for $600, a second copy in 9.6 sold in the spring for $300. I believe the latter prices were soft and ocurred prior to rumors hitting the street that Constantine might be coming to the big screen. Lets not forget a 5.5 CGC sold for $300 in 2019. A CGC 9.6 variant sold in 2018 for $750.
Doug notes: First FULL appearance of JOHN CONSTANTINE aka HELLBLAZER; ALAN MOORE Story;
CGC label note: 1st full appearance of John Constantine. 95¢ cover price.

Rumors circulating that Red Hood will make it to the big screen have yet to materialize and who knows when that will actually occur.
Conan notes: Example variant sales at MyComicShop: a raw 3.5 on 7/24/2020 for $46, a CGC 6.0 on 5/28/2019 for $50, a raw 6.0 on 7/6/2020 for $57, a CGC 6.0 on 10/12/2020 for $90, a CGC 8.0 on 7/6/2020 for $125, a raw 6.0 on 7/15/2020 for $170

Marvel, 9/1984
$1.00 $300
▲ $45
 Marvel, 9/1984  1st Appearance of Transformers
#6 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: Every CPV collector should have a copy of this book given the importance of this issue. A good number of copies were printed with a manufactoring flaw due to a dull blade (top and/or bottom edge of covers). A 9.8 CGC copy sold in 2020 for $2425 and a 9.2 CGC sold for $400.
Bill notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,800 in December 2017
Conan notes: Example variant sales at MyComicShop: a CGC 8.5 on 11/18/2019 for $77, a CGC 9.2 on 7/3/2020 for $350

Archie, 10/1982
$0.75 $275
▲ $25
 Archie, Oct-82  2nd Appearance Of Cheryl Blossom
#7 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: Second appearance of Cheryl Blossom. This issue came out the same month as Archie’s Girls Betty and Veronica #320. A very key book that needs more attention! Very early CPV’s of Cheryl Blossom appearances definitely need a price hike given the difficulty finding high graded copies.
Doug notes: SECOND appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in Barely Friendly = 6 page-s; First appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in this Title; Same Month as Betty & Veronica #320; Jason Blossom app; RARE due to HIGH demand; Very Undervalued as compared to B&V#320;
Paul notes: A CGC 6.0 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $115 in 2020.
CGC label note: 2nd appearance of Cheryl Blossom.
 
Marvel Graphic Novel 4 Canadian Price Variant picture $5.95 $220
 Marvel, 1982  Origin & 1st Appearance of The New Mutants, (Cannonball, Psyche, Sunspot & Wolfsbane).
#8 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: A CGC 9.8 sold for $1,075 in July 2019 and has since fallen in value.
Ben notes: Readers should be aware that Marvel Graphic Novel does not fit the same mold as the newsstand-exclusive comic book variants that make up the rest of the Marvel guide. These Marvel Graphic Novel books are magazine-tier at CGC/CBCS, and beyond the size difference to regular comics the distribution differed as well, with these books distributed as graphic novels with just one version priced at $5.95 for Canada, as opposed to there being direct edition and newsstand versions.
Paul notes: A CGC 9.8 Marvel Graphic Novel #4 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $1105 in 2019
CGC label note: Origin & 1st appearance of The New Mutants (Cannonball, Psyche, Sunspot & Wolfsbane).
 
Amazing Spider-Man 252 Canadian Price Variant picture $0.75 $204
▲ $9
 Marvel, 5/1984  1st Appearance of the black costume; Amazing Fantasy 15 cover homage
#10 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: In 2020 the following grades sold for breakout prices: 9.0 CGC S.S. Lee for $426 in March; 9.4 CGC S.S. Lee in August for $740; 9.8 CGC in October for $1800. Along with Marvel Team-up #141, Spectacular #90 and Secret Wars #8 this book is a must have for the Spider-man collector/investor interested in the black suit which eventually becomes Venom.
Ben notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,813 in November 2020. An “event” comic that received immediate collector interest, it is likely that many collectors may have not been able to load up at their local comic shop with as many copies as they wanted, and thus headed to the newsstands to add additional copies. We see an extraordinarily high number of CGC census copies of both the variant (relative to other CPVs) and the “regular” types for this particular issue.
Bill notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,282 in October 2018; back in December 2017 a CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,000; a VG/FN variant sold for $107.58 in August 2018

Paul notes: Example ASM #252 variant sales at PNJ Comics: A CGC 9.8 Amazing Spider-Man #252 variant sold for $1,020.00 on 12/24/2017, an NM+ variant sold for $250.00 on 3/7/2018, an NM variant sold for $215 in 2018, and a raw VG/FN variant sold for $80 in 2020.

▲ $145
 Archie, Aug-88  1st Appearances of Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady in comics. Newsstand AND Direct Variant CPV exist
#12 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: Not one but THREE first comic book appearances; Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady! Prices in 2020 have skyrocketed on all grades making me wonder where the ceiling for this book is. A 9.8 CBCS direct CPV sold in November 2020 for $1875 on a public auction.
Ben notes: Advisors still do not have a full consensus as to whether we should give separate values for the newsstand and direct edition CPV for the issue; but the present “lean” among the group seems to be for the newsstand version to have a higher value, and we will revisit next year. This book only very recently “took off” in market value and the number of direct vs. newsstand sales we can observe will hopefully continue to grow during 2021. Related: please note that CGC “lumps together” both types by cover price on their census, making it more difficult to study the relative rarity between the newsstand and direct CPVs, and making the census count number at right inclusive of both types. A CGC 9.8 (Direct) variant auctioned for $1,525 on 12/13/2020 and a CBCS 9.8 (Direct) variant auctioned for $1,875 on 11/19/2020; a CGC 9.8 (Newsstand) variant sold very quickly at a buy-it-now for $2,069 12/7/2020. Also, see my separate two-part post on this issue: Part I & Part II

#15 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: A 9.6 CGC in May 2020 sold for $450. A CGC 9.0 sold for $270 in 2019. Punisher series was great on Netflix and now that there’s no news about his return on T.V. would be a great time to buy this book.This character is just too important, it’s all a matter of when and not if he will reappear on either the small or big screen.
Conan notes: Example variant sales at MyComicShop: a CGC 9.0 on 5/28/2019 for $51, a raw 6.5 on 10/6/2020 for $74, a CGC 9.2 on 12/24/2019 for $81, a CGC 9.0 on 8/5/2019 for $270

Angelo notes: The highly successful Mandalorian series on T.V. has key elements based on this issue, making it very important and a must have book without a doubt. Key Star Wars comics are red hot in 2020. An 8.0 CGC sold for $125 in October; two copies in 9.8 sold for $1000 and $1510 compared to $600 in 2019.

#21 in this year’s Top 100.
Angelo notes: In my opinion, a book that is investment-worthy with more upside potential.
Ben notes: Something that really strikes me about the Blip series is that it is the only instance I am aware of among CPVs where there exist both dual-price newsstand copies *and* single-price newsstand copies (the CPVs) (here’s pictures of what I mean).
