#11 MARVEL ZOMBIES #1 | MARVEL | 2005
During Disney+ Day last week, Marvel announced that an original Marvel Zombies animated series was in development. One of the fan-favorite episodes from the recent WHAT IF? series, the Marvel Zombies series, was a spin-off that many fans were hoping to see. While the episode helped move the key issues for their first appearance in Ultimate Fantastic Four #22, this announcement lit a big fire under this 2005 ongoing series. It sold 10 copies, had a 7-day trend of 284%, with a high sale of $390 for a CGC 9.8 and $150 for a NM raw copy.
#12 WAR OF THE REALMS NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #2 | MARVEL | 2019
War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #2 features the first appearance in the story of Sword Master after he appeared on the cover of #1 along with the other members of the team. Marvel has been quite favorable with Sword Master, giving him a solo series, introducing him into the Future Fight video game, and including him into stories with established characters such as Iron Man and Shang Chi. Rumors have Sword Master as a possible contender to replace Doctor Strange as the Sorcerer Supreme. This issue sold 18 copies this week, had a 7-day trend of 107%, and had a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8.
#13 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 2006
During Disney+ Day, we got snippets of shots from the upcoming MOON KNIGHT series. Moon Knight is easily one of the most anticipated shows coming to Disney+, and any glimpse of the character is enough to throw more kindling to the already fire behind Moon Knight aftermarket sales. While there was light interest in this 2006 series, it wasn’t until last week that it truly started to move. This Charlie Huston and David Finch series took Moon Knight and made him accessible to readers who hadn’t read the character. It brought a whole new crop of fans to the character, and it’s great to see it get some love. This week, it sold 11 copies, had a 7-day trend of 257%, and had a high sale of $150 for a CGC 9.8.
#14 MOON KNIGHT #190 | MARVEL | 2017
In the Disney+ Day teaser, we see a quick glimpse of a teenager in (most likely) the Moon Knight series. This issue features the first cameo appearance of Moon Knight’s daughter, Diatrice, and the first Sun King cover. This possible introduction was enough for collectors to race online, buy up 15 copies to give it a 7-day trend of 180%, and a high sale of $26.77 for a raw copy.
#15 AVENGERS #232 NEWSSTAND | MARVEL | 1983
This first appearance of Eros as Starfox is officially the “go-to” issue for the character. His official inclusion into the MCU still has a significant fire under this key book as it sold 22 copies with a 7-day trend of 136% and had an all-time high sale of $102.50 for a raw copy.
#16 THE ETERNALS #3 | MARVEL | 1976
With THE ETERNALS out, this first appearance of Sersei is still trending with 32 copies sold, with a 7-day trend of 76% and a high sale of $575 for a CGC 9.8. However, this is already down from last week’s $710 for a CGC 9.8.
#17 MARVEL PREMIERE #10 | MARVEL | 1973
This issue is the first appearance of SHUMA-GORATH, who is rumored to appear in DR. STRANGE: IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. While this leak is connected to art being used for a puzzle, it remains unconfirmed. We’ll have to wait for all the pieces to come together. Still, this sent collectors rushing online and picking up 17 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 138%, and a high sale of $1,080 for a CGC 9.8
#18 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 1980
As noted, Moon Knight’s anticipation continues to increase. The first issue for his first ongoing series sold 30 copies, had a 7-day trend of 91%, and had a high sale of $910 for a CGC 9.8.
#19 THUMBS #1 | IMAGE | 2019

#20 WEREWOLF BY NIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 2020
It was recently confirmed that actor Gael Garcia Bernal had been cast as Werewolf by Night for a Disney+ Halloween special (2022). However, it’s unknown which version Bernal will be portraying. The options are Jake Gomez (who first appeared in this issue), Jack Russell (the original Werewolf by Night who the first appearance in Marvel Spotlight #2), or perhaps a new iteration just for Disney+. The market appears to be confident that it will be the more recent Jake Gomez version, as they bought up 19 copies, giving this a 7-day trend of 109% and a high sale of $200 for a CGC 9.8.
