Since Covrprice.com came bagged on the scene, they have become a go to spot for watching eBaytrends on comics. They scour thousands of eBay sales to cultivate data to spotlight the hottest selling comics. Here is this week’s Top Ten Comics: (Please note, potential spoilers do follow, and, these results are for auction that closed last week. )
#10 DAREDEVIL #51 | MARVEL | 2003
Echo is significantly out-trending any other character in the HAWKEYE Disney+ series, and all her various keys are trending. Specifically, this origin issue moved 24 copies, had a 7-day trend of 145%, and had a high sale of $60 for a raw copy.
#9 DAREDEVIL #10 | MARVEL | 2000
Continuing with Echo heat, this issue features the 2nd appearance of Maya Lopez and her first cover appearance (as Echo). Many feel that this should be the go-to issue for Echo, however we’ll cover that a little further into this list. Meanwhile, this issue sold 23 copies, had a 7-day trend of 153%, and had a high sale of $360 for a CGC 9.8.
#8 SLEEPWALKER #1 | MARVEL | 1991
As previously noted, insider Daniel Richtman recently reported that a project centered on Marvel’s Sleepwalker is in development (in some capacity) at Marvel. While this is very unconfirmed, 31 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 114%, and had a high sale of $225 for a CGC 9.8. It’s doubtful that this would be a film. However, we previously would have said the same for a TV show. We’ll have to wait and see.
#7 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 1980
While Spider-Man has the most heat for a Marvel film’s pending release, Moon Knight is the equivalent for Disney+. This highly anticipated series continues to push this first issue to his ongoing series. It sold 26 copies, had a 7-day trend of 148%, and had a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.6.
#6 HAWKEYE #1 | MARVEL | 2016
The HAWKEYE Disney+ series is moving all sorts of key issues. This first solo Kate Bishop series has been a core title that collectors have been steadily selling for months. This week, it had a high sale of $258 for a CGC 9.8 and a FMV of $28.
#5 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. For clarification, issue #9 is the first appearance of Maya Lopez, (as noted) issue #10 is her 2nd appearance and first cover appearance as Echo. Each one of these issues have significant value. Right now issue #9 is the market winner. Yet, with this new attention and recent HAWKEYE heat, 28 copies sold of issue #11 with a 7-day trend of 161% and a high sale of $395 for a CGC 9.8.
#4 EPIC ANTHOLOGY PRESENTS SLEEPWALKER #1 | MARVEL | 2004
This issue features the first appearance of Sofia Strange. As noted by Fandom, “The writer, Jason Henderson, has confirmed that Sofia was supposed to be the secret daughter of Doctor Strange and Clea, born without Strange’s knowledge and hidden from Dormammu on Earth. However, this part of the story was never published and Sofia only had this one appearance. There are two bits of speculation around Sofia. One, as a possible candidate to take the reins of Sorcerer Supreme from her deceased (unestablished) father, Stephen Strange. The other speculation is around her possible MCU inclusion as Marvel builds a next generation/ Young Avengers team. These bits of speculation helped move 12 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 425%, and had a high sale of $90 for a raw copy.
#3 ANIMAL CASTLE #1 | ABLAZE | 2021
As a nod to George Orwell’s Animal Farm, this series by writer Xavier Dorison and artist Felix Delep features a twist on the concept where all animals are NOT equal. It was originally released in France back in 2019 & 2010 as a two-part graphic novel (with some amazing overs by the way). The synopsis describes the series as “Nestled in the heart of a farm forgotten by men, the Animal Castle is ruled with an iron hoof by President Silvio. The bull and its dog militia savor their power, while the other animals are exhausted by work, until the arrival of the mysterious Azelard, a traveling rat who will teach them the secrets of civil disobedience.” Fans immediately took to this very hard to find series and turned to online sources to find a copy. It sold 47 copies, had a 7-day trend of 379%, and a high sale of $50 for a raw copy. The variants are also doing very well. Sets of A and B covers plus all variants can be found here cheaper than eBay prices.
#2 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Spider-Man has had some cool costumes, and few are cooler than Miguel O’Hara, Spider-Man 2099. This futuristic chap was introduced in Amazing Spider-Man #365 (1963) as part of Marvel Comics’ well-intended, early 1990’s 2099 imprint. The character, voiced by Oscar Isaac working double time voicing Miguel O’Hara as well as appearing as the live-action Moon Knight for Disney+, is getting a massive spotlight in the forthcoming Across The Spiderverse animated film, with the new trailer immediately sparking massive interest!! In just two days, this first issue to 2099’s ongoing series sold a whopping 183 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 151%, and had a high sale of $250 for a CGC 9.8.
#1 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #365 | MARVEL | 1992
While this issue features a preview of the (then) upcoming SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1, it gets the honor of being the first appearance of Miguel O’Hara and Spider-Man 2099. With so much heat from the teaser trailer it sold an incredible 189 copies in JUST two days, with a 7-day trend of 156%, and a high sale of $475 for a CGC 9.8. This book is only going up for the next year until we get PART 1 of SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE. And we can’t wait.
