Introducing The 2020 Price Guide Edition

Our inaugural 2018 edition of this guide marked our hobby's first comprehensive price guide for 1980's newsstand-exclusive cover price variants from Marvel and D.C. — covering the two heavyweight comic book publishers of the era. Last year for our 2019 edition we added missing issues and introduced new features such as our Market Reports & Articles section, and, another great collaborator joined our team: Shuster Award winner Walter Durajlija.

This year we are proud to be joined by two great additional collaborators: Jay Halstead (Overstreet Advisor and Director at the International Comic Exchange), and Conan Saunders (Overstreet Advisor and Vice President at MyComicShop). Some new guide features this year include a picture database for Marvel & DC variants (click any thumbnail you see within the guide pages to see the enlarged price variant cover), and expanded publisher coverage to now include CPVs from Archie, Gladstone, and Modern (special thanks to researcher extraordinaire Salvatore Miceli whose efforts made this large coverage expansion possible).

Readers should note that there are other publishers who produced Type 1A variants during this timeframe as well that we have yet to cover — collectors interested in exploring variants from other publishers such as Charlton (not to mention other types of variants) are encouraged to read Jon McClure's article published in the Overstreet Price Guide #40, p. 1010-1033, entitled "A History of Publisher Experimentation and Variant Comic Books" (also available to read online here).

Introducing The Variants — Marvel & D.C.

Introducing The Price Variants — Marvel & D.C.

First, let us discuss Marvel and D.C. Entering the 1980's, Marvel and D.C. each sold comics through two distinct distribution channels: "Direct Edition" copies were directly sold to comic shops on a non-returnable (but discounted) basis; "Newsstand" copies meanwhile were distributed to newsstands across North America, and unsold copies could be returned. In the beginning of the 1980's, all of North America got the same identical newsstand copies.

But starting in October of 1982, due to currency fluctuation, these publishers could no longer afford to charge the same 60¢ price on newsstands in population centers like Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal — i.e. places where buyers would be paying in Canadian currency. For this reason, both publishers started to demand 75 cents from those newsstand customers north of the border. But instead of placing both US and Canadian prices on newsstand copies as they eventually did, from 10/1982, out to 8/1986 for Marvel and out to 9/1988 for D.C., these publishers produced two distinct batches of newsstand copies: a higher cover price batch and a lower cover price batch.

Each batch was produced simultaneously with the other copies on the same manufacturing equipment, so all are 1st print copies (each batch involving only a change of the black/key plate), but the number of copies created for each batch was different, with each batch sized to fit the corresponding market: the Direct Edition batch size was informed by comic shop order levels, and each of the two Newsstand batch sizes were informed by the size of the target market and newsstand sales trends. The smaller batch of higher cover price newsstand copies — the copies today known as "Type 1A cover price variants" were therefore sold in vastly smaller numbers, were purchased mostly by readers, and have estimated survivorship of ~2% of copies (CGC census data for most issues shows variant rarity between 1-2% of census copies), as we illustrate below:

Direct Edition Comic Books:  An Estimated 80% of Surviving 1980's copies Newsstand Comic Books: An Estimated 20% of Surviving 1980's copies [Click here for a detailed explanation of these graphics]

Introducing The Variants — Archie, Gladstone, & Modern
Introducing The Price Variants — Archie, Gladstone, & Modern

This year, thanks to the research efforts of Salvatore Miceli, we are expanding our guide's coverage to include additional publishers. Each of these publishers has varying dates during which price variants were published, and there are also different distribution circumstances to keep in mind versus over at Marvel/DC: for example with Archie, direct editions were generally only introduced much later (with certain titles only getting their first direct editions way out in September of 1988), with early 1980's keys like Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica #320 (1st Cheryl Blossom Appearance) having had only newsstand distribution. Archie kept publishing their price variants well past the end of the '80s and into the '90s (Gladstone also published variants into the 90's). Read more detailed introductions at the following links about the variants from Archie, Gladstone, & Modern.

The Top 50 (& Runners Up) By Median Advisor Variant Value
1
Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica 320 Canadian Price Variant picture $0.75 $600
1st Appearance Of Cheryl Blossom
Angelo notes: A 5.5 CGC sold for $200 in October 2019. First appearance of Cheryl Blossom !This key Price Variant is really tough to find in higher grades. Very early CPV Cheryl Blossom appearances are great investments.
Ben notes: Note that Archie only introduced direct editions much later, so for earlier Archie issues like this one there was only newsstand distribution and thus two total types (the two different cover priced newsstand versions) instead of three; one thing this difference means is that the percentage of total copies that are the CPV is much higher when compared to Marvel/DC CPVs.
Doug notes: 1st appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in Dare to be Bare = 5 page-s;

Amazing Spider-Man 238 Canadian Price Variant picture $0.75 $475

1st Appearance of Hobgoblin; Came with Tattooz
Angelo notes: A 6.5 CGC sold for $210. A 9.6 CGC sold in August 2018 for $2,300. None in this grade have appeared in months. This has become a must have book for the serious C.P.V. collector and/or investor. A double cover in 9.4-9.4 CGC has been confirmed to exist!
Paul notes: 75¢ variants of this issue did indeed come with Tattooz included; book is considered incomplete at CGC (green qualified label) if absent — read Jon's note as well, regarding CGC's treatment. A VF- Amazing Spider-Man #238 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $160 in 2018
Ben notes: Classic cover contender. Also refer to my prior note in this separate blog post »
Jon notes: Amazing Spider-Man #238 is not incomplete without Tattooz. It was printed in a standard, old fashioned way, independent of the Tattooz inserted later, just like many other in-house or paid advertisement inserts from any era. I believe this problem originates from the fact that the comic's cover mentions Tattooz, as does the cover to Fantastic Four #252(3/83). Ideally, the Tattooz ARE absent due to the slow degradation of the contents that will eventually effect the paper quality inside. Overstreet listings are confused, forced to respond to CGC's myopic view. Once upon a time, I called Bob Overstreet and told him that the FF #252's Tattooz were being used as ASM #238's Tattooz and that the cure was to list them as same value, which he agreed with and subsequently did so. Collectors aren't sure what to believe and that's how the myth is perpetuated, the myth of being incomplete without Tattooz. At some point, although my original note remains in the guide about the switching of Tattooz between books, this was changed back to the original mistaken listing (including the explicit mistaken statement that NO Type 1a Canadian variants exist with Tattooz) with two values, with and without Tattooz. The FF #252s are listed in Overstreet #48(2019) at $8 with Tattooz and $6 without in NM-, and ASM #238 is listed at $170 with and $80 without in NM-, a discrepancy that highlights this dilemma, with Tattooz worth between $2 and $80 for the same item. All any grading company would have to do is say ''no Tattooz'' on the label and have a blue label, leaving it to the collector to decide on the relative importance of its inclusion. There is little difference between the mistaken use of the term ''Canadian Edition'' for Type 1A variants and insisting books without inserts are incomplete; thankfully the misidentification of "Canadian Edition" now reads "Canadian Price Variant." Any real NM- or better copy should be taken seriously with or without the insert. Tattooz were inserted in Amazing Spider-Man #238 and Fantastic Four #252 and advertised on the covers; Captain America #279(3/83) and Star Wars #69(3/83) were all given Tattooz inserts without any advertising on the covers. Because neither of the latter books are considered incomplete without the inserts and would receive CGC blue labels, it stands to reason that ASM #238 and FF #252 are not incomplete without Tattooz either, as the books are complete, having been printed in a standard way, independent of the Tattooz that were then inserted. The only difference is the ads on the covers, and those are irrelevant as they are part of the cover of the comic book.

Rumors circulating that Red Hood might be coming to the DCU. Treat it with a grain of salt. So much going on with this book that it'll only get more expensive as an investment.
Doug notes: Low Print = 97,741 Copies in Pub. Circ. Stmt; FIRST appearance of JASON TODD (Later becomes the RED HOOD); FIRST brief appearance of Waylon Jones aka KILLER CROC; (See Detective #523 for First cameo appearance; See Detective #524 for First FULL appearance);

Angelo notes: Second appearance of Cheryl Blossom. This issue came out the same month as Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica #320. A very key book that needs more attention! Very early CPV's of Cheryl Blossom appearances definitely need a price hike given the difficulty finding high graded copies.
Doug notes: SECOND appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in Barely Friendly = 6 page-s; First appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in this Title; Same Month as Betty & Veronica #320; Jason Blossom app; RARE due to HIGH demand; Very Undervalued as compared to B&V#320;

Paul notes: A CGC 9.8 Marvel Graphic Novel #4 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $1105 in 2019
Ben notes: Readers should be aware that Marvel Graphic Novel does not fit the same mold as the newsstand-exclusive comic book variants that make up the rest of the guide. These Marvel Graphic Novel books are magazine-tier at CGC/CBCS, and beyond the size difference to regular comics the distribution differed as well, with these books distributed as graphic novels with just one version priced at $5.95 for Canada, as opposed to there being direct edition and newsstand versions.

1st Appearance of the black costume; Amazing Fantasy 15 cover homage
Angelo notes: In August 2018, a 9.8 CGC variant sold for $1,150 and a 9.6 CGC variant sold for $764. Book has settled for lower prices since because an increased supply came up for sale. Then in November 2019, a CGC 9.8 variant (white pages) sold for $1750. Along with Marvel Team-up #141, Spectacular #90 and Secret Wars #8 this book is a must have for the Spider-man collector/investor interested in the black suit which eventually becomes Venom.
Paul notes: Example ASM #252 variant sales at PNJ Comics: A CGC 9.8 Amazing Spider-Man #252 variant sold for $1,020.00 on 12/24/2017, an NM+ variant sold for $250.00 on 3/7/2018, and an NM variant sold for $215 in 2018.
Ben notes: An "event" comic that received immediate collector interest, it is likely that many collectors may have not been able to load up at their local comic shop with as many copies as they wanted, and thus headed to the newsstands to add additional copies. We see an extraordinarily high number of CGC census copies of both the variant and the "regular" types for this particular issue.
Bill notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,282 in October 2018; back in December 2017 a CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,000; a VG/FN variant sold for $107.58 in August 2018

Prices for 9.6 and 9.8 have fallen in 2019 however, prices in lower grades have seen a slight uptick with speculation that Apocalypse can potentially make a comeback.

3rd Appearance of Cheryl Blossom
Angelo notes: In my opinion, a very undervalued CPV. Cheryl Blossom's third appearance; first solo story; second Jason Blossom; multiple SEXUAL suggestive panels well-disguised on the cover making this controversal indeed! See my market report for this year where I point them out in detail!
Ben notes: In this year's value survey, for this issue (and other early Cheryl Blossom appearances as well), the difference between the highest advisor opinions and the median advisor opinion was particularly stark; in other words I feel this makes the early Cheryl Blossom appearances "issues to watch closely" for the future, as some members of the advisory team clearly see more upside.
Doug notes: FIRST SOLO Story & Third overall appearance CHERYL BLOSSOM in Snob Hill, 11 page story; Cheryl Blossom Pinup; Second appearance of Jason Blossom;  Archie in DRAG cover; CONTROVERSIAL Hidden SEXUAL and Sexual Innuendo Scenes HIDDEN in Busy BORDER Images; First appearance of CHERYL BLOSSOM in this Title;

Price Guide Methodology

The team of collaborators have independently submitted advice on variant values for the top key comic books. The median of those advised values collected for each issue — i.e. the middle ground number at which exactly half of advisors gave an equal or lower value opinion and half of advisors gave an equal or higher opinion — were used to compile a Top 100. By comparing these median advisor values for each issue against the "base Direct Edition value" for those same issues, a variant premium was discovered which helped inform the rest of the guide. The base Direct Edition values were determined by (1) an extrapolation of observed marketplace asking prices for the issue around the research period of August-September 2019, and (2) opinions from up to three different popular comic book price guides.

Using This Guide to Canadian Price Variant Comics

This guide is presented on a best-efforts basis, but none of the included information is guaranteed to be free of human error; and due to the sheer volume of issues included in the guide, it was not possible to individually verify all information issue by issue or to confirm the existence of every variant by observing a photograph of each variant proving its existence. We have included Marvel & DC variant pictures this year, with 92% picture coverage; for those issues we were unable to find, while there is reason to believe the variants may exist, is it also possible that certain included issues were actually direct edition exclusives lacking newsstand distribution. Therefore you should use this guide only as one tool among your comics research tool-belt, and you should verify information with other sources before acting. Expected variant cover price, for example, can be error-checked by referencing a direct edition copy and looking up the small-print Canadian price tag — that small-print price would then be the expected cover price used for the smaller newsstand batch.

Information columns presented in the guide are: Issue (and date), Direct Edition value, the expected cover price found on variant newsstand copies, and finally our guided Variant values (all guided values presented are for "raw" copies; all guided values are presented in US Dollars). The final column is used to indicate when the variant for the issue has been confirmed at CGC, i.e. at least one variant copy appears on the CGC Census as of 8/27/2019; when found, we show the number of variant copies on record as of that date. At the bottom of each row, a Note may appear for a given issue for noteworthy items such as 1st appearances; Advisor notes are displayed in green. In the full guide pages for each title, rows are highlighted in yellow by noteworthy value above a threshold. Direct edition value columns are highlighted with a pink circle in cases where noteworthy value disagreement among price guides was spotted and flagged.

CGC census information is presented throughout the guide, comparing the year-over-year census counts for both the main/regular census entry and the variant census entry. The census counts shown are drawn from the 8/21/2018 census snapshot for last year's counts, and the 8/27/2019 census snapshot for this year's counts. Note that as of May 2019, CGC now catalogs variants on their census under the name "Canadian Price Variant" while pointing out the variant cover price on the right-hand side of the label. As of the time of guide publication, CBCS has not yet released their census. As of October of 2018, CBCS began denoting the variants as "Canadian Price Variant" with the cover price included in the label name itself, e.g. "75¢ Canadian Price Variant."

The most common terminology you will find in the marketplace for these variants are "Cover Price Variants", "CPVs" (CPV being an abbreviation for Cover Price Variant or for Canadian Price Variant depending on context), "Type 1A Variants", "Canadian Price Variants", "Canadian Newsstand Editions", and older slabs prior to October 2018 for CBCS and prior to May 2019 for CGC will show the variant name as "Canadian Edition."
