Angelo notes: Key Star Wars comics have been on fire in 2020 and 2021 and this book has far more room to grow. In Jan of 2021 a 9.6 CGC sold for $400. In August 2020 a 9.6 CGC sold for for $265. An 8.5 CGC sold in December of 2019 for $350. A CGC 7.5 CGC sold for $265 in April 2018 only to be auctioned once again shortly after for $208. Dark cover makes it difficult to find in higher grades.

Marvel Movie Showcase Comics CPV FAQ

Do cover price variants exist for Marvel Movie Showcase in the 1980s?

✔️Accepted answer: Yes, Type 1A 1.50 cover price variants exist within the Marvel Movie Showcase title.

Which issues of Marvel Movie Showcase have cover price variants in the 1980s?

✔️Accepted answer: There are Type 1A cover price variants for issues #1-2 of Marvel Movie Showcase. Noteworthy cover price variant examples include #1, and 2.

Are the Marvel Movie Showcase cover price variants of the 1980s rare?

✔️Accepted answer: The Marvel Movie Showcase 1980s cover price variants were exclusive to the newsstand distribution channel (by contrast the well-preserved direct edition type sold in comic shops were not price variants). Within the newsstand distribution channel, the price variants were distributed only to a restricted geographic area within the larger North American newsstand market: that restricted area being Canada. Canada had one tenth the population of the United States in the 1980s. As a result, Marvel Movie Showcase cover price variants from the 1980s are a dramatically more rare newsstand type, and collectors who care about relative rarity are keen to target the price variant version of issue numbers they seek for their collections of interesting and rare comic books.

Are Marvel Movie Showcase 1980s cover price variants 1st printings?

✔️Accepted answer: Yes, by definition Marvel Movie Showcase Type 1A price variants are first printings which were published simultaneously with the other types, on the exact same manufacturing equipment, at the same time, on the same paper, using the same ink, and with publication origin being the USA. The indicia, interior pages, and all other aspects of the variants beyond the cover price box are 100% identical to their regularly priced newsstand counterparts. The Marvel Movie Showcase price variants, having originated in the USA as first print originals, were then shipped North to their destination market.

Are Marvel Movie Showcase cover price variants more valuable?

✔️Accepted answer: Yes, as seen in more detail in the Marvel Movie Showcase price guide page above, the variant values represent a sizable premium over the values of the commonplace direct editions in the same grades.

Help, I cannot find CGC 9.8 copies available for the Marvel Movie Showcase cover price variants I am looking for?!

✔️Accepted answer: We recommend lowering your grade expectations for all of the 1980s cover price variants, including those in the Marvel Movie Showcase title. Remember, the price variants were exclusive to the newsstand distribution channel, which means they were treated as reading material, not as collectibles, by both the staff that handled them, and the typical buyers who as a general rule were members of the general public actually interested in reading the comics. Collectors buying comics from newsstands was the exception, not the norm. As a result, surviving copies in the 9.8 NM/MT grade tier can be exceptionally difficult to find among the Marvel Movie Showcase cover price variants. A more reasonable grade to shoot for would be 9.0-and-up.
