#10 STRAY DOGS #1 BLANK | IMAGE | 2021 There are multiple blank copies out there that retain significant value. However, only a few have surpassed a raw market value of $100+. This blank for Stray Dogs is one of them. Our guess is that fans of the series might be seeking out their favorite artists to recreate personal favorite horror film posters. To do that, this blank is a must-have… and it’s pretty hard to find! This week it sold 12 copies, had a 7-day trend of 293% and had a high raw sale of $149.99.
#9 STRAY DOGS #5 FORSTNER & FLEECS HORROR MOVIE | IMAGE | 2021 The Stray Dogs FRIDAY THE 13TH homage is still trending and makes its reappearance on the list this week. It sold 48 copies, had a 7-day trend of 106% and had a high raw sale of $21.
#8 THOR #617 | MARVEL | 2010 (Loki Spoiler) The speculation turned out to be true as we witnessed the reveal of Kid Loki at the end of LOKI episode 4. His first appearance in this issue saw a nice boost in sales and price with 45 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 119% and had a high sale of $450 for a CGC 9.8.
#7 TALES OF SUSPENSE #62 | MARVEL | 1965 This saw a spike after the recent SHANG-CHI trailer revealed the Mandarin, his Ten Rings, the Great Protector Dragon, and the Abomination. This particular issue, featuring the Ten Rings and the Mandarin’s origin (as well the Dragon Axonn-Kaar, who might be the “Great Protector” Dragon in the trailer) was spotlighted on TALES FROM THE FLIPSIDE. Due to this, it sold 41 copies, had a 7-day trend of 137% and had a high sale of $250 for a PGX 8.0.
#6 BLACK PANTHER #3 | MARVEL | 2016 This issue features the first COVER appearance of THE MIDNIGHT ANGELS, which is the strike-force subgroup of the Dora Milaje. Many sellers were incorrectly calling this issue their first appearance, despite first appearing in DOOMWAR #5. Still, this news helped move 42 copies with a 7-day trend of 156% and had a high raw sale of $10.
#5 X-FACTOR #10 BALDEON CHARACTER DESIGN VARIANT | MARVEL |2021 This issue and ALL variants were hot this week due to it featuring the “death” of the Scarlet Witch. Seeing how heavily Scarlet Witch is being developed in the MCU, this death may be short-lived. However, this design variant sold 34 copies with a 7-day trend of 209% and had a high raw sale of $30.
#4 WHITE #1 | BLACK MASK STUDIOS | 2021 This new issue from a re-emerged BLACK MASK STUDIOS was instantly hot when copies hit the aftermarket. Initially, it was reported that this first issue was limited to 2,500 copies. However, it has been reported that those sales increased significantly due to high demand. Regardless, aftermarket sales were on fire as it sold 44 copies, had a 7-day trend of 274% and had a high raw sale of $150.
#3 BLACK CAT ANNUAL #1 | MARVEL | 2021 In this issue, Marvel introduces a new South Korean team called TIGER DIVISION, with a line-up of: BLACK CAT, WHITE FOX, LUNA SNOW, THE GENERAL, MR.

#2 FANTASTIC FOUR #273 | MARVEL | 1984 As noted, speculation believes that we’ll be seeing Nathanial Richards aka KANG THE CONQUEROR in the next few episodes of LOKI.

It sold 45 copies, had a 7-day trend of 342% and had a high sale of $400 for a CGC 9.8.
