CBSI HOT 5 LIST : Joker Covers

1 Detective Comics #69

COVER ARTIST: Jerry Robinson
Technically the 3rd Joker cover in comics(sorry Tec 40…) this comic has experienced incredible growth/price correction over the last 5 years.  While a raw copy could be had for under 500.00 at almost any show pre 2014, a low grade copy will now run you a few grand…  I honestly believe as more folks discover this comic, the price will continue to spike.

2 Batman #251

COVER ARTIST: Neal Adams

Another example of a comic that could be had for a song pre 2014.  As the market shifted and Adams got more attention, this book took off as well.  Arguably the most recognized Joker image outside of Killing Joke at this point.

   

3 Detective Comics #880

COVER ARTIST: Jock

A true classic cover from the modern age.  Jock separated himself from other artists with works like this.  Being the last issue of the run with a “lower” print run than earlier runs gives this a little boost as well.

4 Killing Joke

COVER ARTIST: Brian Bolland

You would be hard pressed to find a person in comics today, that does not immediately recognize this image.  Through multiple printings, homages, swipes and even a movie, Killing joke has remained a steady seller on the market in all printings.

5 Batman #11

COVER ARTIST: Fred Ray

Another classic from the Golden Age of Comicdom.  There are a handful of comics that could have landed here from the golden age alone.  That said, this cover continues to bring bidders to the table whenever it hits the market.

       

Superman Batman #7 French Limited Edition Variant

ARTIST: Gabrielle Dell’Otto
Released in France in 2008, years before Dell’Otto really got hot in the states, this variant limited to 2,000 copies is on a lot of collector’s want lists.

            

Batman #423

ARTIST: Todd McFarlane
1988 classic that has 3 printings.  First print is the one to have here, with the only differences between printings being the logo or upc on the cover.
