The last few years have been a wild ride for the comic book market as even the most minor of keys experienced exponential growth. Have we reached an inflection point? All signs point to yes.  So what gives? Let’s take a look at TMNT Adventures #1, a Copper Age favorite, and see if we can learn something about speculation and the health of the broader comic book market in general.

Some of the first comics to irrationally take off were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle books. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #1 has been the biggest roller coaster of all.

Turtles in Time

Just to be clear, I am not writing about this comic to bash it. I absolutely love TMNT Adventures #1. I’m an 80s baby and it was the first comic book series I ever collected. I still have my full run of the mini-series and then 1-30 of the main title. I will never, ever sell them. That being said, loving a book and thinking it wise to impatiently spend over $2,000 dollars on a 9.8 are two very different things.

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird released the first print of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 in 1984, causing an independent comic book boom. This gold rush atmosphere in comic book collecting led to a myriad of publishers entering the market and obscure comics most of us have never heard of started selling for hundreds of dollars, a small fortune in the 1980s.

As always, this speculative frenzy was quickly followed by a bubble. Many independent comics quickly found themselves in dollar bins by 1987 and most of the new publishers ceased to exist. The point is: Ninja Turtles are no strangers to causing speculation; history repeats itself. tmnt-1-202x300 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

Unfortunately, it seems like, once again, the turtles are at the center of another Copper crash. I know that sounds dramatic, but let’s take a look at TMNT adventures and what the turtles have generally been doing since the start of Covid.

Off the Radar

The start of the Pandemic is foggy for a lot of people. Many of us thought the world was ending and the streets of Manhattan looked like a scene from I Am Legend. People were suddenly out of work and parents unexpectedly had kids at home all day to take care of. The resultant uncertainty and newfound need for cash were reflected in both the stock market and the comic market. Major keys flooded eBay and were readily available for well below fair market value. It was a great time to buy if you had cash on hand.

When Covid began, you could pick up a 9.8 copy of TMNT Adventures #1 for $150. I specifically remember seeing an Instagram post at that time where someone was selling two NM+ copies for $20 combined. Raw copies were readily available all over the internet for next to nothing.

This has always been one of those books I keep my eye on simply because of nostalgia. At that point, I was pretty much alone in my appreciation. Let’s be honest, no one cared about TMNT Adventures until very recently. There were so many other Ninja Turtle keys to focus on and it was a children’s comic produced by Archie. So what happened? last-ronin-1-195x300 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

The Perfect Storm

Many of us were stuck inside during 2020 and looking for sources of entertainment. After the initial shock and fear from Covid subsided a bit, people began spending the stimulus checks that started landing. Amazon and Nike stock soared from frivolous purchases. An incredible one in ten stimulus checks went straight into cryptocurrency. I would love to know how many of them went to comics.

My birthday is in September, and at that time I thought I might treat myself to a 9.8. It was relatively cheap and I had noticed in GoCollect’s database there were only a few hundred 9.8s on the census, which I thought was shockingly low. I love books with a low census. Low census numbers do not necessarily mean a book is rare, however. It often means people just don’t care enough to get a book graded because it simply isn’t that desirable and therefore isn’t worth that much money. Just because there aren’t hundreds of thousands of Darkhawk #1s on the census doesn’t mean there aren’t a ton of high grade raw copies out there in the wild.

I decided to pass on grabbing a 9.8. They were simply not that many available online and I decided to grab something else. I immediately regretted it. The Last Ronin #1 dropped in October of 2020 and, in my opinion, it is largely responsible for the comic market explosion we’ve seen since then. Many credit it with keeping comic book stores afloat and with bringing renewed attention from Millenials to collectibles. With the release of The Last Ronin, we saw TMNT 1, 2, 3, and 4 all shatter records along with Raphael #1. Once again, the Ninja Turtles were in the middle of a speculative explosion. raphael-1-202x300 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

Market Change

This is where things get a little weird for TMNT Adventures #1, and the market in general. TMNT Adventures made it to a hotlist as an honorable mention stating it was going to be the next big comic. A few 9.8s hit the market and the book jumped from $250 to $600 and then $900, a 400% increase, or a four-bagger if we’re using investment slang. Amazing! What a great come-up if you had one. The rest of the comic market quickly followed. Third cover appearances, first team-ups, and comics with 10k graded copies somehow started going for at least triple their historical prices.

For most of 2020, you were lucky to have one copy of TMNT Adventures pop up on eBay in a month. Suddenly there were 12 graded 9.8s. The book dropped a bit after hitting this new ceiling, then one very public post later and we were back to the races. Next thing you know, by early 2021, TMNT Adventures #1 hit $2250 dollars. That’s right, $2250 dollars. That is more than a 1000% increase in FMV in just a few months. Several sales followed in the proceeding months for about the same price.

Let’s break down what a 1000% increase in FMV means. Hypothetically, if you had ten 9.8s worth 2k, you now had 20k worth of slabs. You suddenly had a down payment on a house. When TMNT Adventures #1 hit 2k, the first appearance of Miles Morales in Ultimate Fallout #4 was still hovering around 1k, doubling its FMV. The first appearance of the Punisher in Amazing Spider-Man #129 in 7.5 was about 1k when TMNT Adventures #1 hit 2k. I should also mention that a newsstand copy of TMNT #1 sold for an even 6k on 1/29/21. SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS! If this all sounds ridiculous to you, it should. How did this happen? Did everyone suddenly wake up and care about the first appearance of colored bandanas? Please. tmnt-1-3rd-205x300 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

From Pump to Dump

So what has happened to TMNT Adventures #1 since its 1000% increase in FMV? It isn’t pretty. After selling for around $1,500 dollars for months after that initial record was set, prices quickly declined. In October of 2021, a 9.8 white pages copy sold for $660. That is more than a 66% decline in FMV in a matter of months. I would also like to point out that Raphael #1, which had an FMV of $2,800 in a 9.6, recently had a sale of $1000.

A 9.6 of the third print of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, which had an FMV of 3k, recently sold for $1500 dollars at auction. It is no coincidence that the first books to be pumped on social media during the pandemic were also the first to crash and burn. Watching these exploding FMVs is what motivated me to write multiple articles suggesting caution when collecting during Covid.

What’s the Why?

So why the drop in price? There are a lot of factors. One, the stimulus checks have dried up. The price of eggs and avocados are not the only things that were affected by printing trillions of dollars. I don’t think anyone is willing to spend 2K on such a minor key when it’s coming out of pocket.

Two, this isn’t a remotely rare book. The CGC census of 9.8s has doubled to 425 in a year. As expected, the first books sent to CGC to cash in on a booming speculation market are coming back and landing on eBay. The law of supply and demand applies to comics as well.

For the record, I reached out to John Jackson Miller of Comichron.com to do some print-run research. He informed me that there were an estimated 280,000 copies sold of TMNT Adventures #1. That is a very, very large print run. Keep in mind that by 1988 the Ninja Turles were already a massive success with 5 prints of the original first issue, multiple graphic novels, cartoons, toys, and a movie in the works, so it makes sense so many of these were sold. The question remains: how many more of these will end up getting graded?

home-alone A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?Lastly, the social media echo chambers and eBay market manipulators moved on to other books after making their money. Unseasoned speculators who bought copies to make a quick buck were left to catch a falling knife, reminiscent of a Ponzi scheme. If you’ve been on YouTube lately, you’ve probably seen everyone making the Home Alone face in their videos, feigning shock that prices have dropped so drastically not just for TMNT Adventures, but a solid half of the books that exploded during quarantine.

Are these people really surprised? I don’t think anyone posing in front of a 100k comic collection was blindsided by this decline in FMV. If anything, this is probably how they were able to afford that collection, pumping books they own or just thoughtlessly creating content out of necessity. You’ll often see them discuss hotlists and books to buy, but you’ll rarely see them comment when they miss or when a book dives.

I just want to say, I am not pointing the finger at any particular outlet or person. We all speculate and make hot lists and there is nothing inherently wrong with them. What I will say though is that some people take advantage of them and then manipulate the market knowing they can make a quick buck at the expense of buyers with raging FOMO. If you watched eBay in the last year, you might have noticed how rampant the manipulation was. Keep in mind there is no SEC monitoring collectibles and manipulating bids is extremely easy.

I hate to see people lose money, and losing more than 50% on an investment in less than 6 months is horrible. It is also terrible for the comic collecting community on the whole and a sure-fire way to quickly turn people away that might just be returning after a decades-long absence. That being said, let’s take a look a what a “crash” actually is and some telltale signs of eBay manipulation.

What Is a Correction, a Bear Market, and a Crash? stonk-meme-300x169 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

When I wrote about a potential crash last year, I suggested investing in blue chip Silver and Bronze Age comic books instead of the high print run comics of the Copper and Modern Ages such as TMNT Adventures. The blue chips have continued to break records at the time of my writing this blog entry, while the newer stuff has taken a beating to put it lightly. I have seen some outlets call this a “correction”. If we’re going to use financial terminology in reference to comic books, we should use it honestly and properly.

A correction occurs when there is a 10% decrease in value in an asset. You officially enter a Bear Market when there is between a 10% to 20% decrease. When you are well north of a 20% decrease in value, and it happens quickly, you have yourself a crash. So where does that leave us with TMNT Adventures, TMNT keys in general, and many Copper and Modern Age keys? Well according to this terminology, a lot of these comics are crashing and crashing hard.

You may have recently observed comic listings piling up on eBay with prices from last year. See those buy-it-now prices that no one is falling for? Everyone is scared to go to auction because they know the end result will be ugly. The good news is you only lose money when you sell, so you might just want to hold on until they go back up in price in the years to come.

Signs of Market Manipulation

There is a reason there are countless books on the psychology behind trading stocks. Staying focused despite experiencing FOMO is crucial in making educated decisions for trades. The same applies to buying and selling comic books and collectibles in general. A lot of sellers know this and took advantage of people being glued to screens with free money by whipping up some FOMO with their friends. How is this done? It isn’t very complicated.

hulk-345-195x300 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?You may notice sometimes after a book hits a hot list, someone will post it for quadruple its FMV, attempting to set a new ceiling for its price. Then you”ll see an auction go up, they’ll have their friend bid it up for them, causing everyone watching to experience FOMO. The next thing you know you have a new record. This is reminiscent of whales in the stock market coordinating to jump on a stock or cryptocurrency, causing upward momentum, which then leads to more buyers jumping on to pump up the price even further, at which point the whales sell. This is very illegal with good reason. It always leaves the little guy holding the bag.

An easy way to tell when this is happening is when an auction surpasses an existing buy-it-now price. With TMNT Adventures #1, there was a listing with a buy it now of $800, but inexplicably an auction went to $1500. Why would someone bid a book up to $1500 when they could buy one for $800? They wouldn’t. The purpose of that auction was to make someone buy the book at $800 thinking they got a deal. Rinse, wash, repeat, next thing you know you have sales hitting 2k.

The craziest example of this type of pump and dump scheme was Hulk #345. We all have access to CGC census data now and everyone in the last few years has started mining it while stuck at home. Hulk #345 has a 9.8 population of 79. It seems like these quasi-low populations are the perfect targets for market manipulation in the hype madness that’s been Covid comic collecting.

You can’t corner a market if there are only a dozen, and you definitely can’t if there are thousands. A couple of hundred is just right. I love anything McFarlane, so I always watch this book. It had a FMV of around $300 for years. Covid came along, and then the next thing you know it was listed for $10,000 and sold. Guess what? The auction that was ongoing went for a couple of thousand after that 10k posting. It now has a 1 year average of $900 after multiple sales above 1k. And you know what else? That book that was listed and sold for 10k was bought for $300 just a few months early. Those CGC serial numbers are a dead giveaway in these situations. maxresdefault-8-e1646339422110-300x171 A Covid Comic Market Case Study: Is TMNT Adventures #1 Turtle Soup?

Lessons Learned

So I hope the takeaway here is to do your due diligence and to question the louder voices in the comic book community when they promote certain comics. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #1 is only one of many books to have a rough ride in the last year or two. At the end of the day, people need to create content for subscription fees and monetized YouTube channels.

There is no fiduciary duty in collecting comics and you are ultimately responsible for doing your own research on whether a comic is a smart investment, experiencing market manipulation, has a small or large print run or CGC census etc. If a comic has landed on a hot list, you should probably stay away if you don’t have it already. Check eBay auctions and sale histories and keep your head on a swivel.

I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on TMNT Adventures #1 and other books you may have noticed getting the same treatment in the last two years. Drop a comment below. Shout out to John for helping me pin down those numbers. Thanks for reading!

This is a great article…..very informative information and very interesting… it seems to go counter to the site it’s on and I like that ….it feels balanced 😊

Harry Stone III March 8, 2022 - 4:07 pm

Thanks John. And not to shamelessly plug the site here, but this type of stuff is actually right on target for GoCollect. I’d say now more than ever, people need access to CGC populations, years of sales info, and just plain old information, that way you can see how a comic actually performs in the long term. If it wasn’t for GoCollect data, I’d have no idea how crazy some of the recent sales are.

Ruben+Rivera March 8, 2022 - 3:05 pm

Harry, as longtime investor in stocks and mutual funds, etc., your analysis with regard to comics and other collectibles is dead on. When I first started investing in the stock market, man, was I naive. I just assumed if I did my due diligence that it would pay off in the long run. I had no idea then the massive number of pump and dump and other scams and I was appalled that crooks, let’s be blunt, had never-ending schemes to bilk one out of their hard earned savings and ruin whole family finances and their future retirement. I am not surprised to see the same garbage in comics. I read and watch a lot of comic book gurus and speculators. An old college professor once told me to learn how to eat the meat and garbage the bones. When I watch these guys, it’s so obvious they’re pumping their stuff. One way to be sure is they don’t tell anyone anything until they have first bought the given comic and then talk about why it’s so undervalued and about to explode. For the most part I don’t buy today’s modern comics, whatever the hype, unless I have already bought them at list price when they first come out, or pre-ordered them from my favorite online stores. That’s how I can say I have, as one of many examples, mint SIKTC #1A that I bought on Midtown pre-order for like $3 and it is worth many times that. If I miss the boat on some new comic that goes through the roof, so be it. Didn’t loose anything. I’m satisfied. Thanks for the great post. All the best.

Thanks for the comment. As for the market, this type of stuff has gotten very bad in the last few years regarding comics and collectibles in general. I think the “gamification” of investing, along with everyone sitting at home with free money, caused a lot of greedy, dishonest behavior. Speculation has always been around, but not at this level, if you even want to call it speculation at this point. I’d call it fraud.

Modern comics aren’t to be avoided necessarily. If anything, precovid, those were the books that exploded that made sense to me anyway. It was either A. A hot new character in a modern book or B. A character from an older comic was popping up in a movie. Now books explode for absolutely no reason other than someone making a video with some trumped up future possible appearance, a third cover appearance or a fourth team up. They drop as quickly as they were pumped. The FOMO has gotten crazy.

GeekStoxx March 8, 2022 - 6:38 pm

You hit it right on the head with this post! I’m an expert in many losses and have learned the hard way like many, I’m sure. So when it came to these “highs” that seem to be outrageous, like a seasoned vet, I put my money to the tried and true books that no others were having their radars on. I did purchase a couple of TMNT Adventures #1… $65 & a set of 1-3 for $100. Though it was pretty high from what I would typically pay, it was low enough for a NM+ that I would acquire it. At times I wouldn’t find these books posted until the Last Ronin, and everyone and their parents were posting them up for sale. I had to pull the trigger.

But I do feel bad for those who paid significant amounts to acquire these, when the numbers do show there were a lot of these out there. So glad there are tools available now for all to use and be informed.

But let’s also not forget that there are those nerds and geeks (myself included) who are buying for nostalgic reasons and if I had the cash to spend, would acquire grails at any price. There’s even a book I would pull my savings and credit cardS out and purchase if it came to market at the right price. So market manipulation or not, there are those who would spend hard earned dollars to catch that grail.

Thanks Harry, love the post! Keep ‘em coming!!!

Justin March 8, 2022 - 7:04 pm

Wonderful article and I’m glad I learned about FOMO in early 2019. Learned to ride my own boat then, mostly dollar bins in dark corners. One thing I hear often is you only lose when you sell, but how does one “win”? At some point it’s important to realize profits to win in my opinion. Maybe I’m talking about another game, but even as an investor if I see 200% gains that’s a dream come true.

Harry Stone III March 9, 2022 - 10:50 am

Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of honest people out there with excellent information, no need to ride your own boat. Regie Collects is probably my favorite YouTube channel and he talks about the ins and outs and ups and down of comic collecting. A lot of detailed, in depth information on his channel. I just get a little wary when people act like what goes up can’t come down and they have a new spec list every two days. There are some of those channels out there too. But shout out to Regie, great channel.

I’m guessing a lot of people sold last year when they saw 200 to 1000% gains. They definitely won. I saw a few articles on business websites about instagram sellers making fortunes during Covid. I wrote one of these about Darkhawk last year bout taking profits if you want to take a look.

Justin March 10, 2022 - 6:17 am

Thanks for the reply and suggestions on some guys to check out. I’ve still learned along this track that I’m my best guide. I don’t watch YouTubers or IG accounts to influence my collection, but I do like it when they pump my books. It was never part of my equation for collecting, I literally took the best advice given to me, collect what you love and it hasn’t burned me yet. Your article points out the main reason I avoided social media to influence my decision making process. I’m sure there’s a few good people out there guiding collectors, but my faith will always lie in my own DD. Everything else is just a confirmation if I’m right or wrong.

Kenloi March 9, 2022 - 6:21 am

Recently when Ultimate Fallout 4 was discussed here, your rational words tranced over the echo chambers. The book was getting expensive to buy but had Covid artificially increased it’s worth. Probably but the book is still increasing because of its potential. FOMO reduces the buyer beware in us. Only ever buy what you can afford applies to everything, usually learnt the hard way. Only luck, experience and instinct allows some people to make the correct choice 50% of the time. I still think modern books are a good investment long term. Research, research, research. If Miles appears in a live action movie this year i am fascinated to see what will happen to his key books…

Harry Stone III March 9, 2022 - 10:59 am

Miles is kind of the exception to the rule. 3k might be a little much, but he is once in a generation character. I think in his case, the demand outstrips the supply, kind of like ASM 300 and Hulk 181. I’d grab for sure if UF4 drops back down. Lots of other Miles keys with room to grow out there too.

When he comes to a live action movie, I have no idea what to expect. I remember arguing with another blogger that 1500 was ridiculous on here two years ago, now we’re at 3k with nothing concrete. 4500 maybe???

Ruben+Rivera March 9, 2022 - 3:20 pm

“Speculation has always been around, but not at this level, if you even want to call it speculation at this point. I’d call it fraud.”

I wish you were wrong, but you’re not. When I first bought comics on Ebay back in another era, I was so naive. The number of crooks selling doctored comics was ridiculous. The grading / slabbing comics pioneers understood this, hence CGC, PGX, etc. Thus I turned to slabbed comics for the ones I really wanted. But as those can be so expensive, I have bought key raw comics over the years from reputable sellers and only occasionally have had to return books that were not as advertised.

That’s how I bought Ultimate Fallout #4 the Djurdjevic variant for just under $80 back in the day and Captain Marvel #14 newsstand for $100. The Ebay seller I bought it from (who was really into newsstand comics) told me that Kamala Kahn was going to be big and to grab his newsstand while the getting was good because it was ghost. Glad I did. Both are NM raws. Those days of course are gone.

Today I could never afford to pay for my dream comics that I bought a decade or more ago. So these days, when it comes to newly released modern books, if I didn’t pre-order it (like I did with Canto #1 or SIKTC #1), then I figure that shipped has sailed and I’m OK with that. Like with stocks, better to miss a stock that goes up than to buy a pump and dump and get hosed. My top goal is to have fun, not feel like I’m in a war with the jerks out there.

Keep up the good posts.

GQGuyforComics March 10, 2022 - 2:34 am

you have done justice to the hobby of collecting comics , thanks for this very informative and very detailed writing. it make sense now what i have always doubt about the pricing of most books in the market, but can you blame the buyers since some books can be seen only when speculation or news gathered by comic owners ( yes your website has some stir in it as well ) that the only time they put it out there, one book i can say is seasoned by the so called speculation out of proportion is the 1st gunslinger spawn , you might say the limited print of 22k++ affected its rarity but to get pumped this much due to having its own title run ??? you tell me how many books out there got pump that much %%%% due to news of having its own story arc. i mean dont get me wrong to have increase value due to having your own title book is understandable but this crazy high ? again thank you writer to elaborate and pin point the issues dead on and teaching us about whats happening in the market. even to those shameless people who even writes here on comment sections saying the prices wont go down and so forth even adding their reasons like bullet points in which are the 10 commandments of todays comic collecting. and thank you again in teaching us to keep going for this hobby by sticking to whats relevant , just like in any bubble there will always be places or areas of value the challenge is looking and earnestly researching which holds value. lastly thank you for sole comfort of you only lose if you sell , lucky enough i love what i bought even if its expensive like the cgc 5.5 hulk 180 i bought for 1300 when at that time dd1 can be bought with a grade of 1.5 – 2.0 , now hulk 180 dipped and dd1 well no need to mention the price now. cheers !

mikedeville90 March 10, 2022 - 5:46 am

I have a couple of these that are signed by Kevin Eastman and Steve Levine. I am curious on the value of them? Any ideas?

Kenloi March 11, 2022 - 5:17 am

In most of my local comic shops i have always liked to wander in and pick what i fancy at that moment. At present it is not possible unless you are first in store opening. You will be lucky to find ANY hot book other than the store saying go on Ebay and you can buy a new standard 1st print book for 2-3 times cover price or wait a day and if any left buy for what that store has upped its price to. All comics seemed to be saved for ‘new subscribers’. I don’t use ebay at present to buy or sell. I only add to a personal collection to read the book once and then store.This is a sad situation really and surely not healthy for any brick comic shop.I know this has been discussed many times before but it does irritate. The only plus point is one of my honeyholes has a healthy back stock and i can usually buy any hot comics 3 weeks later when the ‘new subscribers’ haven’t picked them up due to the inflated price dropping, for less than cost in the back stock. Take for example Sixth Gun 1 1st print. I was always interested in the story due to Cullen Bunns writing and could never find a raw copy in any store 5 or 6 years ago.I usually like to find raw comics rather than a trade. Eventually found a beauty at cover price.What goes around comes around. Short term or long term price increase. Who knows. 8 years ago tried to find an Invincible 1 to read. Only found a vg copy for way too much money and left it. Instead found in one shop 10 reprints at 50 cents each in nm 6 years ago. Bought 5 read it and gave 4 away. One hardback i have been trying to find is Pride of Baghdad Omnibus, 1st print only, due to my obsession. A sad story based on fact with excellent interior art.Might have to get someone to buy me a copy on the Bay eventually. TMNT 1 Adventures has been on my current find list for years. Wouldn’t pay much for a raw if possible when i find a suitable copy. Did buy a fifth print TMNT 1 7 years ago for cover price in VF condition. Massive print run may stop it going astronomical long term. A few years ago two local shops had multiple comics of Ms Marvel 1 kamala kahn in every print at cover price. They couldn’t sell them and i did buy nearly one of every print as i am a fan of hers. Her books should rocket eventually. If you go deep hunting you can usually find anything in dark,dank corners of every shop.My favourite shop that has now closed, used to be a basement below a furniture store with tons of comics thrown everywhere. There was no walkway. Just stand on top of layers of comics and delve your way through. No staff. Just pick what you want and pay at ground level. Everything was 50 cents or less. I could have lived there in bliss. They had multiple copies of Thundercats 1, Walking Dead 1. Loads of hot books from bronze to today and yes you guessed it i didn’t buy any of these hot comics…Would be nice if you could do a thorough miles current key list. As there are now quite a few. I enjoyed your Moonknight article…Peace
