Since Covrprice.com came on the scene, they have become a go to spot for watching eBaytrends on comics. They scour thousands of eBay sales to cultivate data to spotlight the hottest selling comics. Here is this week’s Top Ten Comics: (Please note, potential spoilers do follow, and, these results are for auction that closed last week. )
#1 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL, 2014) As we mentioned, there’s a “Silk Live-Action Marvel Series in the Works at Sony Pictures Television”. This news set fire to Cindy Moon’s first appearance as Silk. However, after being mostly ignored, Cindy Moon’s cameo appearance in this issue also saw traction for the first time with 44 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 395% and had a high sale of $90 for a CGC 9.8. Keep an eye on the hard to find 2nd print for this issue too.
#2 BATMAN #92 RETAILER APPRECIATION (DC, 2020) With Punchline’s heat, there are a lot of expectations on this book’s potential. However, it’s really hard to say what this will do long term. This book was VERY hot with 78 copies sold, had a 7-day trend of 89% and had a high raw sale of $335. Based on the current market, this appears to be dropping with a current market price of $225. Can this price hold?
#3 MILES MORALES SPIDER-MAN #18 BIRTHDAY (MARVEL, 2020) We’ll admit, we’re super wary of One-Per store variants. With very few exceptions (Spawn, Something’s Killing the Children, Negan Lives), most one-per store variants are typically poor investments. They’re almost always overpriced in stores and tend to dramatically decrease in value in a very short amount of time. Despite this, this Miles Birthday cover sold 79 copies, had a 7-day trend of 74% and had a high raw sale of $100. However, prices have dropped and currently sell for $55.
#4 BLACK PANTHER #2 (MARVEL, 2005) This first appearance of Shuri is INSANE right now. This issue sold 33 copies, had a 7-day trend of 161% and had a high sale of $750 for a CGC 9.8.
#5 SPAWN #309 MCFARLANE (IMAGE, 2020) This return of Gunslinger Spawn seemed to be a cover that everyone wanted. The heat continues for this issue as it sold 55 copies, had a 7-day trend of 94% and had a high raw sale of $33.
#6 BLACK PANTHER #5 (MARVEL, 2009) While on all the covers from issues #1 to #4, this issue is the first full internal appearance of Shuri as Black Panther. This has pushed this book to crazy new prices like this week’s raw sale at $170. We’ve seen these in $1 boxes plenty of times… so this jump is absolutely amazing. It sold 25 copies, had a 7-day trend of 198% and had a high raw sale of $170.
#7 SUPERMAN #4 (DC, 1986) Also on the TOP 10 last week, Idris Elba announced as the character BLOODSPORT (revealed during DC Fandome) lit a surprising amount of fire under his first appearance in this issue. It sold 47 copies, had a 7-day trend of 94% and had a high raw sale of $40.
#8 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #4 (MARVEL, 2014) Variety reported that there’s a “Silk Live-Action Marvel Series in the Works at Sony Pictures Television”. This news set fire to all covers of her first appearance. After seeing a spike in price due to the Miles Mania Halo, this first print is now super hot with 31 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 136% and had a high sale of $350 for a CGC 9.8. The Ramos 1:10 is selling for over $400 raw and $800 in a 9.8.
#9 MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #10< (MARVEL, 2005) There are some spoilers here for VENOM #28, but we’ll try to keep it as vague as possible just to explain why this comic made it to our list. Apparently, a YouTube comic channel leaked panels from this issue, revealing the identity of VIRUS. This character has a connection to Venom/ Eddie Brock and had a first in this MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #10. This reveal moved all the copies listed on eBay and drove the price up to new heights. It sold 16 copies, had a 7-day trend of 262% and had a high raw sale of $50.
#10 BLACK PANTHER #1 LASHLEY VARIANT (MARVEL, 2009) As we mentioned last week, the sudden loss of Chadwick left Marvel fans wondering how the Black Panther world progresses. The strongest consensus is that Shuri will take over the mantle, which gave this overlooked Lashley variant a nice boost in price with 13 copies sold, had a 7-day trend of 266% and had a high sale of $250 for a CGC 9.8.
