Now, this is the FIRST PART (of TEN) of the Top 100 Most Wanted Comic Books by collectors of all ages and from all eras. I could have easily filled the Top 100 with Golden Age and/or Silver Age books, but where would the fun be in that? So if you’re new to the hobby, a veteran like me, or an old timer who remembers the Superman radio show, I hope there’s a few comics on here that would make your list.
So like the list, hate it… print it out and use it as a dart board, but just remember, these are my choices. If you feel your list would be better, go for it. Write a list. I’d love to read it. And chances are, I’ll like it, cause I love reading about comics… as I hope you do too.
So with all that said, here’s the first 10 (Numbers 100 to 91.) ENJOY!
100 – Harbinger #1 (January, 1992) Valiant Comics
The most wanted Valiant title is also our first entry into the Top 100. Desired with the coupon intact, this issue is also the first appearance of the Harbinger Kids. At over one hundred bucks, it’s a holy grail to many new collectors.
99 – All Star Comics #58 (February, 1976) DC Comics
When All Star Comics returned during the bronze age, it returned with a bang. This issue, which brings in a cool 150 to 180 bucks near mint, has the pleasure of being the first appearance of Power Girl, Earth-2’s answer to Super-Girl.
And be honest, fellas. Earth-2 got the better Super-Girl. Am I right?
98 – NYX #3 (February, 2004) Marvel Comics
Some old timers may not like this next choice, but newer collectors are all over this. The first appearance of Laura Kinney, aka X-23 is a very sought after book in the modern age market. Newbies, ignore the haters. If this is on your list, go after it!
97 – New Teen Titans #2 (December, 1980) DC Comics
The first appearance of Deathstroke is a must have for DC villain fans. At around 120 bucks in Near Mint, this book has a strong following that shows no signs of slowing down. Not bad for a Deadpool clone. Just kidding, just kidding! Don’t kill me fan boys!
96 – Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1 (February, 1986) DC Comics
Can you believe I originally didn’t have this book on my list? Instead in its place, I had Secret Empire #0. Seriously. Okay. I’m fucking with you, but truth be told, Frank Miller’s take on Batman broke the mold. What can I say that hasn’t already be said. This is quite possibly, the greatest Batman story ever told.
95 – Uncanny X-Men #101 (October, 1976) Marvel Comics
Jean Grey’s transformation into the Phoenix took the former Marvel Girl from a boring Damsel in distress to a kick ass, powerful entity that changed the face of the Uncanny X-Men book for years. BTW, good luck finding a high grade copy for a low price. You’d have a better chance of Kanye West not saying something stupid than finding one for under a hundred bucks.
94 – Iron Fist #14 (August, 1977) Marvel Comics
Any self loving X-men fan worth his weight in X-titles will tell you that this book is near the top of their lists — if they don’t already have one. The first appearance of Sabretooth is a true KEY ISSUE in every sense of the word. And contrary to popular belief, he didn’t start off as a Wolverine antagonist, but as a foe of Iron Fist. Crazy, right?
93 – The Walking Dead #1 (October, 2003) Image Comics
Can you feel it? The Comic book “purists” are going crazy over this choice! The Walking Dead?! How can that be? Well Fan Boys, the truth is, this book deserves it’s place on My List. It’s probably the most sought after comic of the last 20 years and well, the Walking Dead TV show only adds fuel to the collectable fire so… at 1,500 dollars RAW Near Mint, it makes the list. And if you don’t like that, make like a Zombie and BITE ME! Or don’t.
92 – Amazing Spider-Man #101 (October, 1971) Marvel
And speaking of scary shit like Zombies, I give you Vampires! To be more precise, I give you Morbius, the Living Vampire! One of the Amazing Spider-Man’s most desirable KEY ISSUES, this first appearance of Morbius is a Five Hundred dollar book in Near Mint. So if your daddy has a good job, beg him for a raise in your allowance, cause this book is gonna cost you.
91 – Marvel Preview #4 (January, 1976) Marvel Comics
This entry may come as a surprise to a few, but many of us have realized a long time ago that Star-Lord is a HOT Character! And thanks to the super-popular Guardians of the Galaxy movies, his first appearance went from a few bucks a few years ago to around five hundred bucks today! Whoa!
