  • Many classic characters were introduced in anthology titles, Thor in Journey Into Mystery and Iron Man in Tales of Suspense but unlike the other two, Doctor Strange did not appear on the cover which causes this book to be overlooked
  • Until this latest 6.0 sale, there was a difference of $10,000 between Strange Tales #110 compared to Journey Into Mystery #83 and Tales of Suspense #39
  • Whoever purchased the 8.0 for double the previous high actually got an incredible deal on the book
  • For one, there are only about 100 copies that are graded higher than 8.0
  • Also, the $15k purchase is still half the average price paid for Iron Man and Thor’s first appearances
  • While Iron Man and Thor may be considered more popular, all three issues are comparatively similar having been released within a year of one another and register approximately 1,600 graded copies in existence
  • Strange Tales #110 is currently undervalued

  • In June 2020, we predicted Daredevil #1 was grossly undervalued and would soon experience a price correction
  • After spending much of 2021 on the Hot List, we’d love to brag about our mutant abilities to see into the future but the truth is much simpler than that
  • Anticipating a comic book’s increase in value can be determined by analyzing comparable items
  • For example, in 2015/16, The Incredible Hulk #1 graded 5.5 jumped from an average sale of $8k to $15k
  • The Fantastic Four #1 averaged $7500 in the same grade throughout 2015/2016 then in 2017 increased to an average sale of $12k and even more in 2018
  • There is a cyclical aspect to Blue Chip Key Issues correcting in price that occurs over the course of years to match other comparable books that have increased in value
