Spider-Verse was a big crossover event from Marvel a couple of years ago that introduced a host of Spider-themed heroes from alternate realities. None had the immediate impact of the Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman, who quickly got her own Spider-Gwen spinoff title, and was also a central character in last year's Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated film. Edge of Spider-Verse #2 is the first time that we see this version of Gwen Stacy, and copies will fetch up to £400 ($520) depending on the quality.
Go to any comics-themed event and you can guarantee that you will see people dressed as Harley Quinn. The former Dr Harleen Quinzel began life as the Joker’s girlfriend but is now a pop culture icon in her own right, again to the point that she gets a starring role on the big screen in the likes of Suicide Squad and the upcoming Birds of Prey. Her first appearance in comics was in The Batman Adventures #12 from 1993, and top-quality copies will sell for up to £1,300 ($1,700).

The Walking Dead has become a phenomenon. This black and white comic from Robert Kirkman has spawned not one but two TV shows, but initially just 7,200 copies were printed of the first issue. If you have a first printing copy in mint condition then you could be looking at a comic worth more than £1,500 ($2,000), though even those in less than pristine condition will still fetch at least £190 ($245).

This issue, drawn by the enormously influential Todd McFarlane, marks the first full appearance of one of Spidey’s most iconic villains, Venom. Venom has gone on to become a huge star in his own right, not only enjoying spin-off comics of his own but even a blockbuster movie in 2018 starring Tom Hardy. Top-quality copies of Amazing Spider-Man #300 will fetch up to £1,500 ($2,000), while those that are a little more worn and thumbed could bag you between £60 ($80) and £180 ($235).
