Welcome back to this week's Weekly Auction Gem rundown! Each week, we'll look at Heritage's weekly Sunday - Tuesday comic auction, their weekly video game auction, and their weekly poster auction to see which items should be on your radar!

Adventures Into The Unknown #33 Ungraded

This late Golden Age Ken Bald cover has loads of appeal. The damsel in distress is being preyed upon by a ghastly spider with a human skull head, while she attempts to escape despite being caught in a human size web. This issue features a number of horror-adjacent stories, including When Werewolves Howl and The Girl Who Died Twice.

Heritage notes that there are pieces missing from the cover, but appears to be in overall Very Good/Fine condition. Graded copies don't come up for sale too often. The last recorded sale was January 2023 when a CGC blue label 4.5 sold for $279. Overall CGC has graded 14 of these books -- 10 received a Universal label, while 4 received a Signature label.

The Amazing Spider-Man #15 Ungraded

While most early Spider-Man issues are important, more eyes may be on this particular issue. The Amazing Spider-Man #15 introduces Kraven the Hunter, whose own movie will be released in October 2023.

The trailer might have helped boost sales of this issue, but between you and me I found the trailer to be laughable at best. While I hope the movie turns out to be good, I do not believe the movie will have much of an impact on this issue's value overall. Sure, you'll see a price jump, but this book has been a hot key for years.

Heritage notes that this issue is in Good+ condition. The current Fair Market Value for similarly graded copies is $550, with prices trending down between August 2022 to February 2023.

Catwoman Sealed WATA 8.5

2004's Catwoman is one of the worst comic book movies of all time. Despite casting Halle Berry, Sharon Stone, and even Benjamin Bratt, this movie was so bad that it has a mere 8% on Rotten Tomatoes. Catwoman is completely disrespectful to the otherwise iconic Batman antihero, and somehow -- SOMEHOW -- director Pitof managed to make an entire movie about Batman's main love interest, and not even utter a word about the Dark Knight.

It would be impressive if the movie wasn't an actual pile of cat poop. So of course there's a video game tie-in that's just as bad.

As an avid fan of bad cinema, Catwoman is an actual delight. The game, on the other hand, is so bad it's almost unplayable. In its own defense, I did like the graphics. But otherwise, this is a bad, bad game. So does that make it a collectible? Yes, of course. This is still a part of the overall Batman mythos, and if you do collect bad video games, this is one I would go after. This sealed WATA-graded 8.5 B presents well, and you can probably get it for under $40. A sealed WATA-9.4 has a one-year average of $51, so this won't break the bank.

Daredevil Poster, 2003

Speaking of bad comic book movies, it might be time to give 2003's Daredevil another chance. Daredil came out after both X-Men and Spider-Man but unfortunately fell flat against both films. The movie might have suffered from introducing too many characters from the start (among other things), but this was a very early 2000s film that, in hindsight, wasn't the worst comic book movie to come out in that era. Most of the cast would go on to better things, including Ben Affleck, who would go on to play Batman.

This poster may not be on everyone's radar. But it is visually compelling and really captures the comic book feel. Similar posters on Heritage sell for under $50, so you won't be breaking the bank for this poster.
