SDCC is only about a month away now so I was interested in what boardies thought were the hot or cold genres or titles or single books right now. I collect most stuff (exceptions being most war or westerns) so just looking for some thoughts on where you would buy right now based on the current market conditions. Be as general or as specific as you like. Romance  genre or Baker books or Teenage Romances #14 all work for me. I check some of the market myself so just looking to see what I’m missing. Any help out there for a fellow collector with your insights?

I think Archie’s and Centaurs are cold

No interest in Archies, but if that's the case I'm'a be buying up Centaurs like a mad mongoose.

I’m useless to you. The only recommendations I can give you (that aren’t obvious; PCH, Baker) are Space Western and Foxhole.

All classic covers have a market and the books you can't find are always hot.

Planets are hot, new collectors keep energizing the run.

Lower grade Bakers, Archies, and Centaurs have cooled off a bit, but I wouldn’t describe them as being cold (more like lukewarm).

Romance is steadily rising, especially oddball and non-photo cover stuff, some scarce books.

PCH hot, obviously.

Fox mainline titles remain hot.

MLJ generally hot.

EC’s heating up.

Goofy DC is slow.

Too hard to find the ones I want already...:sorry:

I agree war covers are hot/heating up, especially flamethrower stuff. 

DeCalro GGA, PCH especially Harvey classic covers, LB Cole, Centaurs, Fox, any GGA bondage covers.

Well, probably not in the case of Pep 22 as we are still waiting for a few of these to hopefully hit the marketplace one of these days.  :wishluck:

As for the early Centuars, if it's the right copy at a "reasonable" price, you can bet that I'll most definitely be more than interested in that.  :takeit:

There does frequently seem to be a pause with a lot of red hot books, where the buying community seems to react with a "hmm maybe not that much"  that halts the spiral, though often it can pick up again later. 

+1

This definitely seems to be true as the market clearly cycles itself through from one sector to the next, before eventually completing the circle and then starts the same rinse and repeat cycle all over again.  hm

Huh? Archies are Archies, Pep 22 is MLJ.
