Here is this week’s Top Ten Comics: (Please note, potential spoilers do follow, and, these results are for auction that closed last week. )

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Entrepreneur Josh Jones “has acquired the animated film and television rights to Groo, with the intent of producing the character’s first-ever animated adaptation via his film company, Did I Err Productions.” Thanks to this announcement, GROO’s first appearance in this issue has been trending. Created by Sergio Aragonés, this issue featured a 3-page original story of Groo and was intended as a satire of Conan The Barbarian. A few months ago, we were impressed with its high sale of $575 for a 9.8 and $50 raw. This week, 17 copies were sold with a 7-day trend of 114%, had a massive high sale of $1,850 for a CGC 9.8, and a FMV of $90 raw.

Artists David Nakayama truly delivered one gorgeous variant last week. WONDER WOMAN BLACK & GOLD has produced some amazing covers, many of which have landed on our Top 10. This variant is going to be a tough cover to beat. It moved 14 copies with a 7-day trend of 140% and had a high sale of $156.49 for a raw copy.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME fans are still wondering if Miles could appear in the end credits. Recent interviews with Producer Amy Pascal have tiptoed around the subject when asked about future Spider-Man plans. While Tom Holland will still be around for three more Spidey-based projects, it’s unknown when or where Miles fits. Either way, buyers have been boosting sales with 20 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 103%, and it’s back at $3K for a CGC 9.8.

While packed with first appearances, Kate Bishop’s first appearance is one main driver for current sales. However, there is significantly more chatter around the team appearing soon. This key issuus sold 21 copies, had a 7-day trend of 99%, and had a high sale of $1,125 for a CGC 9.8.

#6 DAREDEVIL #10 | MARVEL | 2000
Watching Marvel Disney+ content as soon as possible tends to be a priority for those who don’t like spoilers. Marvel’s Disney+ content can sure move books when a character first appears or is referenced. Without getting too detailed, Maya Lopez (aka Echo) is coming. When it comes to Echo, the market has plenty of books to chase. This particular issue is the 2nd appearance of Maya Lopez and also features her first cover appearance. It sold 19 copies with a 7-day trend of 128%, and had a high sale of $360 for a CGC 9.8.

#5 SUPERMAN SON OF KAL-EL #1 | DC | 2021
With issue #5 now out, the anticipated and hyped “kiss” with Jon Kent’s new love interest Jay Nakamura is memorialized on this very hard to find 1:50 3rd print. Only 10 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 279% and had a high sale of $315 for a raw copy.

#4 DAREDEVIL #11 | MARVEL | 2000
CGC recently updated its case labels for this book to indicate Daredevil #11 as “1st Appearance of Echo (Maya Lopez)”. That has had a significant effect on this mostly ignored issue until recently. With this new attention and recent HAWKEYE heat, 22 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 131% and a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8.

#3 AVENGERS #19 | MARVEL | 1965
Spoilers ahead for HAWKEYE episodes 1 & 2. This one is tough to tiptoe around. If you watched the recent episodes, Jacques Duquesne (played by Tony Dalton) was introduced as Kate Bishop’s Mother’s (played by Vera Farmiga) fiance. To Marvel fans, he’s better known as THE SWORDSMAN. The comic version of this character, who has been both a villain and an ally to the Avengers, has always been complicated. This complexity should deliver unpredictable elements to the Disney+ series. His first appearance in this issue sold 17 copies with a 7-day trend of 243%, had a high sale of $467 for a CGC 7.5 and currently has a raw FMV of $98.

#2 FANTASTIC FOUR #110 | MARVEL | 1971
As Marvel develops a solo Disney+ series for Agatha Harkness, her first and 2nd appearances continue to escalate in price. The market is now also looking closer at this issue which features her first cover appearance. It sold 16 copies, had a 7-day trend of 300%, and had a high sale of $80 for an NM raw copy. There’s also a rare green error edition with a massive sale of $1,500 for a CGC 8.5.

#1 NOCTERRA #1 | IMAGE | 2021
Back in late August/ early September, Scott Snyder commented on Twitter, “So huge news! Tony S. Daniel and I just finalized our ‘Nocterra’ TV deal! We couldn’t be happier with our partners and excited for what’s to come. The official announcement with all the details will follow in the coming weeks — thanks so much again.” This slowly started moving copies until other sources finally found it and shared it, pushing all the cheap(ish) copies off eBay and online sources. This week, that news was confirmed by Deadline that DMZ creator Roberto Patino “will write, exec produce and serve as showrunner on the project, which is in the early stages of development, with James Wan’s production company Atomic Monster.” It’s noted in the article that Patino just secured an overall production deal with Netflix, which is where this project will land. Once again, in the #1 spot, this time it sold 41 copies, had a 7-day trend of 126% and had a high sale of $130 for a CGC 9.8.
