  • 1st team appearance of the Young Avengers.
  • Coming in at number 7 this week is a book that was overlooked for a decade but is putting up monster numbers this year.
  • As recently as February this book could be had for just $200. Blame a lack of awareness and a pre-Kate Bishop rumor world.
  • Beginning in August (as we started spreading the word about it at Key Collector. Humble brag!) the book exploded into the $3k range.
  • This week we have two more big sales at $2,500 and $3,000 further enforcing this as the price threshold to obtain a copy.
  • An extended period without a copy coming to market was broken after a mention here on the Hot 10 when the Jim Cheung sketch cover made an appearance. That copy set a new all-time record of $3,051.
  • The edition has established itself as the edition to own of this book
  • This book features the first appearance of Kate Bishop (later becomes Hawkeye), Patriot, Iron Lad (Kang), Hulkling, son of Mar-Vell and Anelle, the Asgardian (name later changed to Wiccan, son of Scarlet Witch).
  • 285 copies of the Wizard World Los Angeles 2005 exclusive sketch cover by Jim Cheung were encapsulated by CGC at Wizard World Philadelphia for the Wizard First program. Mint condition copies were chosen by CGC, given a unique label and graded 9.5.
  • This book is smoking hot and with all the first appearances it contains as well as rumors that Hailee Steinfeld is playing Kate Bishop in the Disney+ Hawkeye series it may be here to stay.
  • Also note that anecdotal evidence points to at least a handful of the 285 copies being cracked and regraded with regular labels in the years since the books' release. Collectors report receiving 9.8 grades for those copies.

  • 1st team appearance of the Young Avengers.
  • 1st appearance of Kate Bishop (later becomes Hawkeye), Patriot, Iron Lad (Kang), Hulkling, son of Mar-Vell and Anelle, the Asgardian (name later changed to Wiccan, son of Scarlet Witch).
  • Variant sketch cover art by Jim Cheung
  • 2005 Wizard World Los Angeles exclusive.
  • Last week the regular cover landed at number 10. This week the┬áblack and white Wizard World variant replaces it and comes in at number 7 on the list.
  • Prices took a massive leap this week with a new all-time record 9.8 price of $911.
  • This is a book bursting with first appearances but Kate Bishop is the one on everyone's lips this week. Rumors that Hailee Steinfeld is playing her in the Disney+ Hawkeye series are helping fuel demand.
  • Several versions exist including a Toybiz reprint and a director's cut. But the rarest and most in demand is the CGC 9.5 (yes! 9.5!) Wizard World VIP Edition graded for the Wizard First Program and limited to just 285 copies. Currently a ghost, it has not been seen for sale publicly in weeks.
  • We predict that when a copy comes to market it will set records and make waves.
