#10 DAREDEVIL #10 (MARVEL, 2000) Variety is reporting that “‘Hawkeye’ Spin Off Series About Echo in Early Development for Disney Plus”. This issue marks her 2nd appearance, first cover and first costume. It sold 29 copies, had a 7-day trend of 169% and had a high sale of $500 for a CGC 9.8.
#9 DAREDEVIL #9 (MARVEL, 1999) As noted, Echo is in development and her first appearance in this issue is (of course) also hitting new highs. Her rumored appearance on the Disney+ HAWKEYE series has already been moving copies for a while now and has pushed most raw copies off of online sites like eBay. Yet, this news still sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 293% and had a high sale of $455 for a CGC 9.8.
#8 HARLEY QUINN #1 YOSHITAKO AMANO LUNAR THANK YOU (DC, 2021) Lunar’s retailer THANK YOU offers a green version of the Amano variant. Surprisingly, this has been selling like hot cakes! It sold 83 copies, had a 7-day trend of 86% and had a high sale of $203 for a raw copy.
#7 TRUTH RED, WHITE & BLACK #1 (MARVEL, 2003) This seven-issue series had great early speculation, but recently catapulted into the spotlight with the introduction of (spoiler alert) Isaiah Bradley in the Disney+ series, ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier’- one of 300 African American soldiers experimented on by the US Army in an attempt to create super soldiers. By the looks of what we saw in episode 2, this Army vet still has it! As soon as this lesser-known super soldier officially hit the TV screen, sales of issues in this series (including complete sets) have been flying off the eBay shelves. It sold 71 copies, had a 7-day trend of 118% and had a high sale of $500 for a CGC 9.8.
#6 MACHINE MAN #7 (MARVEL, 1978) Yep, another FALCON/WINTER SOLDIER book. In episode 2, the Flag Smashers are powered by a liquid provided by THE POWER BROKER, who was quickly mentioned in the episode. This issue of Machine Man #7 is a one-panel unnamed cameo appearance of the Power Broker. In Machine Man #8 he has a larger/ more substantial appearance (though still unnamed). Regardless, MM #7 sold 28 copies, had a 7-day trend of 338% and had a high sale of $58 for a raw copy.
#5 SUPERBOY #9 (DC, 1994) It’s amazing how a good trailer/content can help for a book’s market demand. After the last SUICIDE SQUAD film, all related books became instant market Kryptonite. Values plummeted almost immediately. Even Harley saw a dip. However, last week’s new red band trailer gave DC fans some hope for a significantly better film. With that said, the instant star out of the trailer was KING SHARK, who has seen his own questionable content appearances in the past. Voiced by Sly Stalone only enhances this instant fandom… which landed the standard cover of this on this week’s Top 10. It sold 58 copies, had a 7-day trend of 172% and had a high sale of $499.99 for a CGC 9.8.
#4 X-MEN #4 (MARVEL, 1992) As noted, OMEGA RED was rumored to appear in Episode 3 of FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. So, we finally got to see if this speculation played out. It didn’t. We did get Madipoor though. It sold 106 copies, had a 7-day trend of 97% and had a high sale of $401 for a CGC 9.8.
#3 CAPTAIN AMERICA #334 NEWSSTAND (MARVEL, 1987) This issue 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. This book saw big spikes in price as it sold 18 copies, had a 7-day trend of 643% and had a high sale of $55 for a raw copy. Lemar first appears (unnamed) in Captain America #323 and named in #333.
#2 TOKYO GHOST #1 SEAN MURPHY (IMAGE, 2015) As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, “Cary Fukunaga (set) to Direct ‘Tokyo Ghost’ Adaptation for Legendary”. This news sold 17 copies, had a 7-day trend of 731% and had a high sale of $69.99 for a CGC 9.8.
#1 TOKYO GHOST #1 COVER A (IMAGE, 2015) The recent option news took this $4 book to big new high sales. It sold 48 copies, had a 7-day trend of 968% and had a high sale of $50 for a raw copy. Keep in mind that Legendary tends to move slow (and this production is not going to be cheap), so you have plenty of time to find a copy.
