HOT MARVEL AND DC COMICS

Movie and TV speculation is rife at the moment and fuelling some strong prices for comics that, on occasion, were pretty much ordinary a year or so ago. Exercise extreme caution when looking to buy hot books! There's usually a decent supply so compare prices and grades. In alphabetical order only rather than any value order, these are some of the Marvel and DC comics (Silver, Bronze & Modern Age) that people are looking for! This list is updated once a month as issues fall in and out of 'hot book' status. If there's a comic you think should feature on this list, let me know at info@comicpriceguide.co.uk and I will credit you.
