“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 7/10/20

These days the Hollywood rumor mill is constantly turning discount comics into key issues overnight.

This isn’t really any sort of recent development though.

I’d be willing to bet that when the Batman movie serials were first shown in theaters way back in the forties, that sales on Batman comics enjoyed a nice little uptick.

People see the movie or show, enjoy it, and then sometimes they want to check out the comics.

Difference being that these days just the rumor of there possibly being a movie or television show based on a comic book property sends the speculators into a scramble looking for one of these overnight keys.

Here are a few recent examples of this phenomenon…


Batman Movie Adaptation, signed by Bob Kane, Dennis O’Neil, and Jerry Ordway, Very Fine Minus (7.5), $50.


Static #1, first appearance of Static, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $29.



Invincible Iron Man #7 Third Printing, first appearance of Riri Williams, Very Fine Plus (8.5), $25.



Beavis and Butt-Head #1, Very Fine/Near Mint (9.0), $20.


To be perfectly honest some of the back issues listed above aren’t really the best examples of a truly speculative key issue.

The Batman book is signed by three industry legends, nothing speculative about the value on that book!

I’m pretty stoked about Beavis and Butt-Head coming back to T.V.

I love those guys!

Especially when they criticize the music videos. Classic!
