This week there are two books to be looking for.
This week sees the release of Thanos #16, featuring another chapter of the Cosmic Ghost Rider story. First prints of this book have sold out at the distributor and the book has started selling online for a few dollars above cover. This book is trending up.
Another book that comes out this week that has been selling well online is the new Spawn Comic. Spawn #283 was originally solicited as having a Jason Shawn Alexander cover. For some reason, Image switched covers and Spawn #283 features a cover by Francesco Mattina. There is also a cover B featuring the same artwork but in Black and white. Copies of both A and B covers have been selling for $15 to $20 on ebay in presales.

It looks like David Schnebly was the first person to point this out. Check out his website.
About five to ten years ago the discussion arose about the first appearance of Spawn. This has a lot to do with Spawn fans wanting to stronger collections, looking for obscure books that others can’t find, resulting from the high print run of Spawn #1. An argument began that Malibu Sun #13 published in May, 1992, an earlier product catalog featuring Spawn, was actually the first appearance of Spawn featuring Mcfarlane’s first Spawn Pinup from 1991, being published weeks earlier than Spawn #1 (published date May 1992). Malibu Sun #13 currently sells for $20 – $80, depending on condition, with CGC Graded copies reaching anywhere from $250 – $400+.
This week it was revealed that there was an earlier published Spawn Pin-up, bringing a new “spawn first-appearance” into the equation.
Rust #1 published by Adventure Comics (Later turned into Malibu Comics) in April of 1992 – a full month before Malibu Sun #13 – and features the original Pin-Up of Spawn done my Mcfarlane in 1991.
This book is currently selling for $20 – $30 – with a limited edition Gold Foil Variant, numbered and limited to 10,000 – hitting the $100+ range. This book is 100% dollar bin material, so that is where you should start looking.
