  • 1st appearance and origin of Daredevil
  • 1st appearance of Foggy Nelson and Karen Page.
  • Making its first appearance on the new Hot 10 but very likely not it's last is perhaps the most undervalued book in Silver Age comics.
  • Last weeks @x tip was to keep an eye on this book as it was due a correction.
  • This week we have a new high sale in grade for a 9.0 at $18,000 (up from a previous high of $13,200).
  • A new all-time high in grade for an 8.0 at $6,900 (up from $6,600. The $9k sale at GPA is an error).
  •  A big jump for a 4.0 to $2,150 (up from $1,900).
  •  A new high in grade for a 3.0 of $1,700 followed quickly by a sale at $1,680.
  •  Meanwhile, a 2.5 matched the high for that grade of $1,250 set in 2018 and raws are now trading at $4,000.
  • Daredevil has been out of the public eye on the media front since his hit tv show was canceled at Netflix so that they could focus on content they owned wholly.
  • Most collectors are unaware that Marvel does not yet have the rights back and assume that because there is no news on the MCU side that Daredevil is not of interest to Kevin Feige.
  • In truth, Daredevil returns to Marvel and is available for the MCU in 2021 (in just over 3 months).
  • Daredevil was created during the period known as the Birth of the Marvel Universe. A period that gave us the majority of the major Marvel characters (and collectible first appearance) e.g. Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, X-Men, FF etc.
  • His depth of characterization and breath of storytelling rival and often surpass those greats with all time runs from Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Waid and Kevin Smith just to name a few.
  • There is a long held belief that Daredevil is a more readily available than the first appearances of the other major marvel characters because there is more supply. The CGC Census. however, places Daredevil lower than both the X-Men and Avengers first issues.
  • The book represents a big opportunity in its highest grades if a correction continues.
  • Even with the big correction on the 9.0 grade, the book lags significantly behind the other birth of the Marvel Universe era books.
  •  In the same grade, Amazing Fantasy 15 is a $450-500k book, FF1 is $160k, Hulk 1 is $215k, Journey Into Mystery 83 is $43k, Tales of Suspense 39 is $47k, X-Men 1 is 70k, even Avengers 1 which features no 1st apps is $50k.
  • Daredevil is also benefiting from a return to blue chip books by collectors.

  • 1st appearance of Nathaniel Richards aka Kang the Conqueror, Rama-Tut and Immortus. Nathanial is the father of Reed Richards (Mr Fantastic of the Fantastic Four).
  • This week news broke that Jonathan Majors has been cast as the lead villain in Ant-Man 3. Rumors swirl that he will be playing Kang.
  • This of course immediately led collectors to assume this meant that the Fantastic Four were soon to be making an appearance in the MCU as well.
  •  The resulting frenzy sent his 1st appearance into new price territory. We saw new all-time highs for a number of grades.
  • As an example, the 7.5 grade went from averaging $700 this year to selling for $1,025, then $1,100, then $1,150, then $1,400 and finally $1,500. In a 48 hour period.
  • Interest is spilling over to Fantastic Four #1 too. We saw a 7.5 copy jump from a previous record of $48,000 to $69,000.
  • Expect this trend to continue as Marvel gets closer to bringing the first family to the MCU.

  • This week, a 9.6 White Page copy (I'm sensing a trend with these White Page books) sold in the Heritage Platinum Session Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction for a other wordly $21,000 obliterating the previous record of $18,000.
  • Raws are selling consistently as well and are now at the $1k mark for mid grades.
  • This is after a CGC 9.8 white pager set an all-time record two weeks ago of $42,500 at the ComicLink Summer Featured Auction and a copy of Fantastic Four 5 CGC 9.4 (1st Dr. Doom) hit $84k on Comic Connect the same week (up from $66k).
