A shortened version of our New Comic Wednesday this time out as it is the dreaded fifth week for new comic book releases. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any worthy books from this smaller crop, however, as the three major comic book publishers each have some interesting releases in our report for January 31st.

Copper Age Comic Report: A More Eclectic Mix, but Major Keys Still Dominate

comic book auction

Although we do get a couple of copies of the comic book that debuted Venom, it is not the top-to-bottom domination that we have seen of late in our Copper Age Comic Report. Instead, we get a more varied mix of books (and yes, the two main staples) in our eBay report for January 19th thru January 25th. [Read more…]

Bronze Age Comic Report: Wolverine, Punisher Debuts Once Again Lead the Way for Marvel

It was a slightly different mix of books in our Bronze Age Comic Report for January 17th thru January 23rd, but in the end, the two, main key issues from this era – both from Marvel Comics – managed to pull in the lion’s share of the top comic book auction sales in this eBay report. [Read more…]

Golden Age Comic Report: DC Holds Court Thanks to a Nice Helping of Batman

comic book auction

While they had a somewhat sleepy start to the new year, DC Comics is now back in form in CPG’s Golden Age Comic Report as the top comic book publisher from that era. DC fashioned a win in the comic book auction results for the week of January 15th thru January 21st thanks in part to the presence of a few Batman-related books. [Read more…]

Modern Age Comic Report: Walking Dead, Harley Quinn Debut Lead the Way

There are no real surprises in this edition of CPG’s Modern Age Comic Report as the comic books landing in this Top 10 have mostly appeared in prior reports. And of course, the book at the top of the list is no stranger to this report as that issue notches two appearances in the comic book auction results for January 11th thru January 17th. [Read more…]

Silver Age Comic Report: Marvel Misses Out on Sweep, But Has Strong Week

It was another fine showing for Marvel Comics in our Silver Age Comic Report, although it could have been even better had a few comic books not been involved in private sales at eBay. Leading the way in our report for January 9th thru January 15th is a key issue that re-introduced one of Marvel’s top superheroes from the Golden Age. [Read more…]

New Comic Wednesday: DC Does Damage, Image Serves Up Ice Cream Man, Marvel Incorporates Venom

new comic book releases 011718

In addition to new comic book releases from DC Comics, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics, we also get at least a little more variety in CPG’s New Comic Wednesday feature for January 17th. DC kicks off their New Age of Heroes with the first issue of a Dark Nights Metal-related character, while Image introduces an anthology hosted by the Ice Cream Man, and Marvel “incorporates” the Venom franchise (not really).

Golden Age Comic Report: DC, Fawcett Battle to a Draw

comic book auction

Marvel Comics can claim bragging rights for the top sale of the week in our Golden Age Comic Report, but DC Comics and Fawcett Publications dueled to a draw for the total number of comic books in the Top 10 for January 8th thru January 14th. A pair of caped superheroes aided the cause of DC and Fawcett, with heroes and creepy tales making up the whole of this week’s list. [Read more…]

Modern Age Comic Report: Marvel Rides Variant Cover Wave to a Comic Age Win

comic book auction

While CPG’s Modern Age Comic Report has most recently been the domain of Image Comics, Marvel Comics rose up to at least temporarily take the mantle away from Image with the help of a handful of hard-to-find variant covers. Image was still in the mix, of course, but that comic book publisher wasn’t able to secure enough sales to lead our comic book auction report for January 4th thru January 10th. [Read more…]

Bronze Age Comic Report: Pair of Sales of Star Wars’ Debut Issue Lead Good Week for Marvel

It was a good week for Marvel Comics in our Bronze Age Comic Report, with a little help from the first issue of the Star Wars comic book. That book, plus two more major key issues for Marvel from this era helped that comic book publisher to a near-sweep of the top comic book auction results for the week of January 3rd thru January 9th.
