#11 THOR #617 (MARVEL, 2010) There’s been speculation that we would see Kid Loki on the Disney+ LOKI series. This news has only increased as folks read into who the various actors attached might be playing, with actor Jack Veal fitting “the look”. This rumor sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 197% and had a high sale of $69.99 for a raw copy.
#12 ENIAC #1 (BAD IDEAS, 2021) ENIAC falls off of the Top 10 after 3 consecutive weeks. While sales have slowed and raw prices have come down, this book is still performing well with 42 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 92% and had a high sale of $2,125 for a CBCS 9.9.
#13 SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN #1 LCSD 2020 FOIL (BOOM, 2020) SIKTC #1 standard cover is on fire and hit a new high of $999.99 for a 9.8 this week. As it gets more expensive, it moves further away from most collectors being able to afford to buy one… which leads them to this foil LCSD variant. At a more affordable $20 raw price, it sold 32 copies, had a 7-day trend of 135% and had a high sale of $115.50 for a CGC 9.8.
#14 CAPTAIN AMERICA #341 (MARVEL, 1988) This issue marks the first appearance of Lemar Hoskins as BATTLESTAR. Since Lemar has appeared in TFATWS #2 as John Walker’s (the new Captain America) sidekick and friend, speculation assumes that Lemar will become Battlestar at some point. In the comics, Lemar receives treatments from the Power Broker, gaining the abilities of a Super Soldier. This speculation sold 14 copies, had a 7-day trend of 304% and had a high sale of $50 for a NM raw copy.
#15 MOON KNIGHT #1 (MARVEL,1980) Recently, various tweets and news articles have noted Oscar Issac’s preparation for his Moon Knight role. This is about all the news we’ve recently received. And maybe it’s enough for now. Fans continue to snatch up copies of his first solo series. It sold 30 copies, had a 7-day trend of 128% and had a high sale of $279.99 for a CGC 9.6.
#16 COLD DEAD WAR #1 (HEAVY METAL, 2021) The low print zombie series, written by George Romero’s son Geroge C. Romero, is described as “A Horror-War series set across the past, present and future, a freak occurrence reanimates an island of freshly killed soldiers in the wake of the Battle of Midway in World War 2.” Umm, yes please. However, it’s pretty hard to find… hence folks having to turn to eBay for a copy. It sold 11 copies, had a 7-day trend of 350% and had a high sale of $23.99 for a raw copy.
#17 BLACK PANTHER #4 (MARVEL, 1999) A brief mention in TFATWS episode #2 of Bucky’s WHITE WOLF nickname in Wakanda reminded collectors of his first comic appearance… which is actually NOT this one. Bucky/Winter Soldier’s first appearance as The White Wolf was in MARVEL’S AVENGERS: ENDGAME PRELUDE #2 (2019). This issue of BLACK PANTHER #4 is actually the first appearance of HUNTER, THE WHITE WOLF… an adopted brother of T’Challa. Now, this could also be spillover speculation of another candidate for the BLACK PANTHER moniker in the MCU. However, it looks like the buyers just got confused. Still, it sold 10 copies, had a 7-day trend of 385% and had a high sale of $34.06 for a raw copy.
#18 WOLVERINE #1 (MARVEL, 1988) This LONG undervalued first issue to Wolverine’s first on-going series is finally picking up steam. There’s no word of when we’ll see Wolverine in the MCU, but boy are fans itching for it. This issue sold 26 copies, had a 7-day trend of 142% and had a high sale of $439 for a CGC 9.8.
#19 SUPERBOY #0 (DC, 1994) Before SUPERBOY #9, King Shark had a cameo appearance in this issue. With all the heat and excitement around his appearance in SUICIDE SQUAD, this may be the book to dive into as it’s significantly cheaper than issue #9 (his full first appearance). It sold 17 copies, had a 7-day trend of 217% and had a high sale of $65 for a CGC 9.6.
#20 CAPTAIN AMERICA #334 DIRECT EDITION (MARVEL, 1987) As noted in the TOP 10 (for the newsstand), this direct edition also features the first appearance of Lemar Hoskins (as Bucky) (and first cover) who also appeared in TFATWS episode #2 alongside John Walker’s Captain America. It sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 188% and had a high sale of $29.99 for a raw copy.
