As promised, the Covrprice.com runners-up list. Think of this as the second half of the top 20.
#11 BLACK PANTHER #1 LASHLEY (MARVEL, 2009) As we already mentioned, Shuri books are hot. We don’t like reporting on a trend that stems from such a huge loss. However, the market’s fear of missing out is a strong machine that refuses to wait. This first cover appearance of Shuri as Black Panther moved both the Campbell (which had a high raw sale of $295) and Lashley variant to INSANE new heights. While the Campbell variant had more of a jump, the Lashley variant had both a big jump AND sold more copies (14), had a 7-day trend of 151% and had a high sale of $270 for a CGC 9.8.
#12 INFINITY #4 (MARVEL, 2013) Based on recent speculation that Thane (who’s first full appearance and origin is in this issue) will play a heavy role in the next several THOR issues, it’s still trending. It sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 144% and had a high sale of $19.99 for a raw copy.
#13 NEW AVENGERS #10 (MARVEL, 2013) Following on Infinity #4, this issue features the first cameo appearance of Thane. It sold 23 copies, had a 7-day trend of 111% and had a high sale of $249.99 for a CGC 9.8.
#14 THOR #5 (MARVEL, 2020) The first Black Winter is still selling well. Currently, Marvel took over Fortnite with a heavy connection to Donnie Cate’s Thor storyline. It hints at BLACK WINTER appearing, which could introduce the characters to hundreds of thousands of new eyes. For now, this is doing just fine even without Fortnite as it sold 27 copies, had a 7-day trend of 88% and had a high sale of $207.50 for a CGC 9.8.
#15 BATMAN #4 NEW 52 (2012) The highly debated first appearance of THE COURT OF OWLS is still trending due to their inclusion in the upcoming GOTHAM KNIGHTS game AND their possible inclusion in Matt Reeve’s BATMAN film. The debate lies in whether #4 or #6 is the first appearance. Since CGC hasn’t noted one over the other, this debate is a hot one right one. Read both issues and see what you think. Regardless, this issue sold 14 copies, had a 7-day trend of 197% and had a high sale of $48 for a CGC 9.6.
#16 STATIC #1 (DC, 1993) Static is getting a new series and was mentioned during DC Fandome that WB is considering a feature film. This drummed up a ton of excitement and started moving copies right away with 15 copies sold, had a 7-day trend of 143% and had a high sale of $289 for a CGC 9.8.
#17 STATIC #1 COLLECTOR’S POLYBAGGED EDITION (DC, 1993) Ditto to #16 above. How many of these are still in polybags? Collectors are seeking these out as it sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 108% and had a high sale of $64.99 for a raw (sealed) copy.
#18 SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 (BOOM, 2019) Man, is this first issue hot. While BOOM has a first look with Netflix, it makes sense to think that the streamer could be considering this series for content. Regardless, it’s been organically growing to new heights each week. This week it sold 18 copies, had a 7-day trend of 103% and had a high sale of $338 for a CGC 9.8.
#19 THE NEW MUTANTS #1 (MARVEL, 1983) The film is FINALLY coming out, which helped move this first issue by selling 30 copies, gave it a 7-day trend of 95% and had a high sale of $213.50 for a CGC 9.8.
#20 ULTIMATE FALLOUT #4 (MARVEL, 2011) Miles Morales. Nuff’ said. He sold 31 copies, had a 7-day trend of 92% and had a high sale of $995.24 for a CGC 9.8.
