Individual Book Scarcity

Is there a resource other than the Gerber books where I can find out the scarcity of individual comics? I'm working on the Detective comics run. Specifically 'Tec 155 to  235. Certain books seem more scarce than others. I'm aware of the general scarcity of the early 50's books regardless. Thanks

I look at the cgc census as a general comparison tool (issue to issue).

I look at Heritage Auction past sales, comicconnect past sales.

Anything truly rare won't have come up in either auction more than a few times.

Then I extrapolate from there how many copies may be out in the wild, both known and unknown.
