#10 KILLADELPHIA #12 TODD MCFARLANE | IMAGE | 2021
Falling one spot this week, Todd McFarlane’s rare non-Spawn variant continues to move in the aftermarket. Usually, hot variants like this fall off after a week while collectors move on to something new. That’s not the case for this Killadelphia cover, which sold 18 copies, had a 7-day trend of 241%, and had a high sale of $45 for a raw copy with a FMV of $43.
#9 SUPERMAN SON OF KAL-EL #2 INHYUK LEE | DC | 2021
As noted last week, this issue features the first appearance of Jay Nakamura, with whom Jon Kent will explore his bisexuality in issue #5. This variant for Jay’s first appearance remains hot this week with 35 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 126%, and had a high sale of $23 for a raw copy with a FMV of $16.
#8 CAPTAIN MARVEL #27 | MARVEL | 1973
Okay, so this is a tough one to do without spoilers. So, let’s do this… this issue features the first full appearance of Eros, brother of Thanos, who is later called Starfox. Now, if you know why this is trending, then we won’t go into it. However, for those who don’t like spoilers, then don’t search for Eros or Starfox right now (sorry Nintendo fans). Since the first cameo of Eros is in the already pricey in IRON MAN #55 (first Thanos), fans turned to his next key… which is this and trending with 28 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 176% and had a high sale of $420 for a CGC 8.0.
#7 SHE-HULK #6 | MARVEL | 2006
And yeah, more Eros. This is simply a modern Eros cover by Greg Land that suddenly became popular as collectors race to buy their favorite key books and covers. It sold 12 copies, had a 7-day trend of 417%, and had a high sale of $46 for a raw copy.
#6 SUPERMAN SON OF KAL-EL #1 | DC | 2021
AND back to Jon Kent. The news of Superman’s son, Jon Kent, shook the internet with the news that he’s bisexual. Interest in his overall story arc continues with solid sales of this first issue of this series’ path to issue #5. It sold 49 copies, had a 7-day trend of 111%, and had a high sale of $150 for a CGC 9.8 presale.
#5 GUN HONEY #1 2ND PRINT | TITAN | 2021
Gun Honey makes it back on the list! However, instead of Adam Hughes, we have this hard to find 2nd print by artist Robert McGinnis. Limited to an estimated 2,000 Copies, it sold 23 copies, had a 7-day trend of 258%, and had a high sale of $75 for a raw copy with a current FMV of $44.
#4 WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH #1 | MARVEL | 1992
No longer a dollar book, this 90’s staple is having its best month ever. Due to being the cheapest and more accessible Warlock book, it made this week’s list again by moving 45 copies, had a 7-day trend of 163%, and had a high sale of $35 for a NM raw copy, though the FMV is $22.
#3 SUPERMAN SON OF KAL-EL #2 | DC | 2021
This first appearance of Jon Kent’s new love interest, Jay Nakamura, slips from the #1 spot last week with 69 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 132%, and a high sale of $29 for a raw copy with a current FMV of $20.
#2 AVENGERS #232 | MARVEL | 1983
And now we officially get the first appearance of Eros as Starfox. As Eros joins the Avengers, The Wasp gives him the moniker stating the inspiration as “You’re a pretty foxy guy and you’ve been out among the stars”. This issue took off in a big way this week and sold 65 copies, had a 7-day trend of 416%, and had an all-time high sale of $950 for a CGC 9.8.
#1 WORLD WAR HULK #1 | MARVEL | 2007
The Geeks Worldwide recently posted an article stating that “The GWW has learned that a Hulk movie is on the way and it is currently being called World War Hulk. Yes, we finally have a new “solo” Hulk film in active development at Marvel Studios and we were told it is currently slated to start production in late 2022, likely following the events of the upcoming She-Hulk series on Disney+”. While this news is very unconfirmed, many news sources ran with it. This sent fans rushing online to find a copy of the first issue of World War Hulk, despite the likelihood that this project would follow the original WWH storyline. Regardless, this rumor lit a fire under this first issue, selling 68 copies with a 7-day trend of 439% and a high sale of $180 for a PGX 9.9 and a FMV raw value of $47.
