#10 STRAY DOGS #1 FCBD 2021 | Image | 2021 This past weekend was Free Comic Book Day, and one of the top books fans went out looking for was this FCBD edition of STRAY DOGS #1 (with additional material). This issue, amongst others, was one of the first free books to disappear and pushed fans online for those who missed out. This issue sold 28 copies, had a 7-day trend of 111% and had a high sale of $16 for a raw comic. One to watch is the Comic Bug “Jason Goes to Hell” Exclusive which has been selling for $40 to $70 (there’s also a virgin, with no current listings or sales).

#9 SUPERMAN #4 | DC | 1986 Idris Elba’s role as BLOODSPORT is still moving copies as fans finally catch up watching the new SUICIDE SQAUD. Many fans have expressed interest in one day seeing Bloodsport taking down Superman. We’ll see. This issue sold 42 copies, had a 7-day trend of 97% and had a high sale of $280 for a CGC 9.8.

#8 SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED #1 | MARVEL | 1993 Another holder from last week is this first appearance of Shriek. She managed to hold her stake in last week’s hot comics, with 46 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 98% and had a high sale of $229 for a CGC 9.8.

#7 THE NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE #1 | DC | 2021 This book refuses to leave the list and somehow has a steady stream of sales, like this week’s 44 copies with a 7-day trend of 109% and had a high sale of $175 for a CGC 9.8.

#6 MOON KNIGHT #13 | MARVEL | 1981 This issue features the first fight between Moon Knight and Daredevil. This one might be mostly wishful thinking, with fans hoping to see an on-screen battle between the two fan-favorite Marvel characters. It sold 28 copies, had a 7-day trend of 202% and had a high sale of $60 for a CGC 9.2.

#5 EXILES #3 | MARVEL | 2018 Despite never being called “Captain America OR Captain Britain”, Super Soldier Peggy Carter chose to go by Captain Carter. However, due to close comparisons, this issue had a ton of heat. This week, sales continued to spike with 50 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 114% and a high sale of $525 for a CGC 9.8.

#4 NOCTERRA #1 | IMAGE | 2021 Recently, Bleeding Cool hinted that “I would advise comic book speculators to get ahead of the game here”. This was enough for sales to spike and other sites to run with this rumor. It sold 49 copies, had a 7-day trend of 147% and had a high sale of $75 for a CGC 9.8.

#3 BATMAN URBAN LEGENDS #6 EJIKURE VARIANT | DC | 2021 One of the top books this week is one that’s being discussed everywhere online. In this issue, one of the stories explores Tim Drake’s sexuality. While there’s no big reveal in an obvious way, the issue does mention Tim having been on a date with a boy that he’s trying to save (as Robin) and spends the rest of the story exploring his feelings. The story ends with him agreeing to go on another date with the same boy. The story sets the table for the story to continue in Urban Legends #10. This news sent fans rushing to eBay to pick up a copy of any cover, helping this variant to move 52 copies, had a 7-day trend of 179% and had a high raw sale of $36.

#2 BATMAN URBAN LEGENDS #6 ANACLETO VARIANT | DC | 2021 Obviously, the issue has stirred a lot of debate and conversations across comic chatter. Those very conversations inspired collectors to also pick up this issue, selling 35 copies with a 7-day trend of 277% and had a high raw sale of $36.

#1 BATMAN URBAN LEGENDS #6 | DC | 2021 AND the official big winner of the week, URBAN LEGENDS #6 with 176 copies sold! A new record since STAR WARS: HIGH REPUBLIC #1. This issue had a 7-day trend of 351% and had a high raw sale of $103, helping it to take the #1 spot.
