Sonic the Hedgehog #1 Comic Book FAQ

What is the value of Sonic the Hedgehog #1?
I have a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog #1 and I want to know what this comic book is worth in different grades as a first printing?

✔️Accepted answer: The answer depends on whether you own a Type 1A cover price variant copy, or just a regular/plain copy of Sonic the Hedgehog #1. If you own a price variant, lucky you, it is worth $140 in 9.2 (Near Mint Minus).

  Suggested answer: Check the cover price of your copy of Sonic the Hedgehog #1, and if it is $1.50 then congratulations, you own the more-rare cover price variant type which has a higher value. If not, then you own the regular type which has a lower value.

  Suggested answer: The higher the grade, i.e. the better the condition, the stronger the value. Our guide only goes as high as 9.2 (Near Mint-), with values for Sonic the Hedgehog #1 listed in various grades shown on this page down to 2.0 (Good).


How rare is the Sonic the Hedgehog #1 $1.50 cover price variant?

✔️Accepted answer: Among surviving copies of Sonic the Hedgehog #1, the market area that received the $1.50 cover price copies was a restricted area representing less than 10% the population of the total North American comics market. That's because the destination market for $1.50 copies of Sonic the Hedgehog #1 was Canada — hence the name Canadian Price Variant as a short-hand for $1.50 Price Variant. All of this adds up to a market value for the $1.50 variant approximately 57% higher than the regular copies in Very Fine / Near Mint condition (as of our 2023 CPV Price Guide Edition).
