#10 MATRIX COMIC BOOK PREVIEW | WARNER BROS. RECORDS | 1999
With the recent trailer for MATRIX 4: RESURRECTIONS, copies of this first 1999 recalled Matrix Preview have been moving briskly and hitting new high prices. Due to the comics being “too mature”, Warner Brothers requested a recall and pulped those copies once returned. However, many didn’t send them back and this is a fairly easy book to find. Until recently, copies could be had for under $10. However, with this recent news, it sold 13 copies last week with a 7-day trend of 165% and had a high sale of $160 for a CGC 9.2.
#9 SPIDER-MEN #1 | MARVEL | 2012
Persistent rumors continue that Miles COULD show up in FAR FROM HOME (possibly as a post-credit scene). With that expectation, collectors are investing in the first time Miles and (616) Peter met in this issue. However, the recent announcement of PS5’s SPIDER-MAN 2 game has Miles and Peter fighting side by side. That could also be a large contributing factor to it selling 20 copies with a 7-day trend of 107% and had a high sale of $183 for a CGC 9.8.
#8 THE MIGHTY THOR #134 | MARVEL | 1966
The MCU rumor mill states that the High Evolutionary (whose first appearance is in this issue) MAY appear in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 and will have direct connections to Rocket Raccoon. This doesn’t seem that far off, which helped convince buyers to pick up 30 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 78% and had a high sale of $1,500 for a CGC 8.5.
#7 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #361 MARVEL | 1992
Interest in Carnage is picking back up a little as prices and sales saw an uptick last week. It sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 129%, and had a high sale of $995 for a CGC 9.8. Despite many are debating whether the film will work, we all can’t wait to find out.
#6 SANDMAN #25 | DC | 1991
Sandman is still set to release on Netflix “sometime in 2021” (though the year is running out quickly), though that didn’t stop HBO from announcing a ‘Dead Boy Detectives’ Series From Steve Yockey, Jeremy Carver, Greg Berlanti” is in development with HBO Max. It sold 16 copies, had a 7-day trend of 156% and had a high sale of $199 for a CGC 9.6.
#5 PYRATE QUEEN #1 | BAD IDEA | 2021
BAD IDEA’s book three of their “final five” titles, PYRATE QUEEN by Peter Milligan was released on September 1st and took a week to properly ramp up, landing on this week’s Top 10 in the 5th position. It sold 33 copies, had a 7-day trend of 83% and had a high raw sale of $28. Most Bad Idea titles have landed on this list, so it’ll be interesting to see what’s next for Dinesh and the Bad Idea team.
#4 STARSLAYER #2 | PACIFIC COMICS | 1982
With the recent announcement of the onscreen resurrection of the Rocketeer franchise through Disney+, the 1st appearance of the Rocketeer in Starslayer #2 is still trending, landing a holdover spot this week with 27 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 107% and a high sale of $539 for a CGC 9.8.
#3 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 36 copies, had a 7-day trend of 94% and had a high sale of $180 for a CGC 9.8.
#2 SPECIAL MARVEL EDITION #15 | MARVEL | 1973
Shang-Chi’s first appearance in Special Marvel Edition #15 continues to see big sales post-release of the well-received new film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It sold 32 copies, had a 7-day trend of 118% and had a high sale of $13,800 for a CGC 9.8 from Heritage Auctions. However, this is a huge price difference from the $20K 9.8 sale a couple of weeks ago.
#1 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #546 | MARVEL | 2008
In the SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME trailer, there was a “blink and you’ll miss it” shot of a delivery truck with F.E.A.S.T. on the side. This led many to the obvious conclusion that if F.E.A.S.T. exists in the MCU, then so does Martin Li aka Mr. Negative. While Mr. Negative had a cameo appearance in the 2007 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN FCBD (SWING SHIFT) issue, his full appearance as both Martin Li and Mr. Negative are in this issue. More directly, it also features the first appearance of F.E.A.S.T. This quick reference helped move 40 copies with a 7-day trend of 126% and had a high sale of $173 for a CGC 9.6. Will we see him in NO WAY HOME, probably not. This is probably just a fun Easter Egg.
