Comic book performance 2021
After a significant run-up in summer 2021, comics have mostly flattened with only Tier 1 blue chips continuing to rise.
Last week’s performance
Fractional secondary markets
It was mostly a flat week for comics bookended by Tomb of Dracula #10 and Avengers #1, both trading on Otis. They were up 40% and down 38%, respectively.
Last week, ComicLink wrapped up its focussed auction series with its most modern issues. Notably two TMNT #1 comics sold for nearly identical prices:
- CGC 8.5: $20,258
- CGC 8.0: $20,000
It’s noteworthy that the sale shows the value of white pages. Typically you’ll see an advance of 20% from 8.0 to 8.5. So there’s a 20% premium to white pages vs. off-white.
