Isn't asking why we have no threads that show books that have or are dropping in value a better question to ask? I ask this question in general terms and not to contradict the original poster in any way. In typical fashion it appears we only care about books that are rising in price and not those that fall. Why is this? You can learn much more by looking at books that are dropping in price than those that are on the rise.

Lots of debate so let's just start the dialogue.

 

Fantastic Four

36, 45 and 52 have taken off.

While 46, 53 and 67 are seriously heating up.

 

Clearly Marvel is trying to buy back the rights to the FF movie franchise. Imagine what would happen to all FF books if Marvel secured the rights and Feige got his hands on the huge wealth of characters. No other comic has the breadth and scope of earthly and cosmic characters. It would be a wild ride.

Flash #117. 6 months ago a friend of mine bought a CGC'd 6.0 for I believe $60.

 

Not too long ago a CGC'd 4.5 went for over $270.

 

Flash #139, Aquaman #29/35, and ST #111/126 are all going up big time as well.

Marvel

 

Strange tales 110 (Climbing but not peaked)

Strange tales 115 (Really has been climbing since November as 110 is getting very expensive)

Strange tales 138 (First Eternity showing some gains)

Strange tales 146 (First AIM and best Ditko cover ever)

Strange tales 169 (First Voodoo) - Bronze age

 

Silver Surfer 3 (Mephisto - Infinity War speculation)

 

Amazing Spiderman 15 (First Kraven - Last hunt speculation next story movie by Sony was in recent hack)

Amazing Spiderman Annual 1 (First Sinister Six - same reasons as Kraven Speculation)

 

Marvel Super Heroes 12 & 13 (Captain Marvel and Ms Marvel)

 

DC

 

Any Neal Adam covers are scorching

 

All War issues with (Rock) - 168 First Unknown Soldier (On fire lately)

 

All showcase issues with Flash and Lantern - the rest are slow and easily picked up at guide

 

Again this is from Observation over the last year on auction sites and conventions.

I really think there are a number of Showcase issues heating up, 30 Aquaman, 34 Atom, and 37 Metal Men specifically.

Brave and the Bold 25 1st Suicide Squad , very rare , hard to find, prices have already escalated.

My Greatest Adventure 80, first Doom Patrol, another rare book that sells immediately for high prices when it shows up.

All the early Supergirl issues in the Action title have been heating up.

It's a good time to be a DC collector and holding some of these books.

I think Marvel is waiting for Fox to make another DUD and hoping the rights will just revert

I'd add Tales to Astonish #44 to the list for Silver Age hot books.

 

And compared to most of the other Marvel books, it shows up a lot less.

Asking for facts which could potentially get in the way of a good story? Party pooper :)

I find it interesting how a pleasant chat can be derailed by a demand for evidence.

 

Let's start with facts first. Marvel has at one time or another tried to rectify their near bankruptcy mistakes by trying to get back all of their estranged properties; Xmen, Spiderman, and Fantastic Four. Spiderman is the one that is in the news right now because of the Sony hacking scandal where we have learned through the emails that Marvel has several variations of revenue sharing deals in place in order to get Spiderman in Captain America Civil War. This makes tremendous business sense as Marvel's main competitor, DC has the movie rights to all of their characters giving DC a significant long term advantage allowing them to control story lines and quality control of their final movie product and how the stories weave together.

 

Specifically for the FF, Marvel has tried to negotiate the rights for both Silver Surfer and Galactus which did not succeed. They were also in negotiations for Submariner (Aquaman competitor) which also failed. In the meantime Fox keeps churning out bad FF movies weakening the equity of the FF brand name and along with it a critical part of the Marvel brand. Marvel cannot deploy hope as a brand strategy and expect Fox will allow the rights to revert back to Marvel. As long as there is a buck to be made Fox will hold on and churn out putrid plots with half assed CGI. Marvel's latest tactic is to cancel the FF comic line so as not give any additional publicity for the next movie. I doubt this will work but it might speed up negotiations.

 

If you would like specific evidence, you can Google all of the above. However common sense should also apply in this discussion. Disney is calling the shots and wants to keep the huge advantage Marvel currently has over DC in terms of revenue and movie quality. DC however has made huge strides in TV and has a long term plan for a significant movie franchise (on paper at least). Imagine the possibilities of a fully operational Marvel line of characters and what could be done on TV, Movies and Netflix. There are hundreds of great FF stories to be told right but I am pulling for this deal just for them to clean up that Steaming turd that was FF 2 Rise of the Surfer and do the Galactus / Silver Surfer movie the right way and make King Kirby proud.
