Amazing Spider-Man #606

Amazing Spider-Man #606 return with its 4th entry in the charts. This is the highest sale so far due to the copy being sold being a 9.8

Venom FlashPoint #1

Copies sold: 1

Appearing for the 3rd time on the charts is Venom Flashpoint #1, which reprints the first appearance of Agent Venom.

The previous sale in 1st week of Sept saw 2 copies selling for $200 each. This sale of $192 closely matches that.

The first appearance of Asajj Ventress finally made its debut entry. This book was first talk about in the 4th week of July as a honorable mention.

The 4th Amazing Spider-Man in the charts this weeks is also a new entry. This issue features a very popular Skottie Young cover of Spider-Man and Deadpool.

This is a CGC 9.0 copy and it sold for $100. There was no sales data for a regular 9.0 but a 9.4 sold for $27.

If we made some assumptions, the newsstand premium for this sale can be in the range of 300-400%!

What if Venom Possessed Deadpool?

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $510

What if Venom Possessed Deadpool makes its entry into the charts for the 3rd time. This particular copy is around a raw 7.5 and sold for $500.

One thought on “September 2020 (4th week) Comic Book Sales Charts and Figures

  1. Dont sleep on that Mace Windu newsstand. That book was a low print run to begin with and I dont think the Star Wars market knows about newsstand as much. I see listings for some rare DarkHorse books sellers miss what they are. And Ventress is going to be a bigger character I think in the long run.
