As promised, the Covrprice.com runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.
#11 RECOUNT #1 | SCOUT | 2020
As reported by Deadline (and hinted by us a few weeks ago), “Concussion filmmaker Peter Landesman will adapt and direct Scout Comics’ comic series The Recount into a feature film for Don Handfield’s Motor Content and Jonathan Kadin’s KadinCreative. Nick Jones Jr. will co-write with Landesman.” This announcement helped 14 copies to move with a 7-day trend of 183% and had a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and a FMV of $39.
#12 ANNE RICE’S THE WITCHING HOUR #1 | MILLENNIUM; COMICO | 1992
The Hollywood Reporter recently noted that “(AMC) has handed out a series order for Anne Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches, which joins Interview With the Vampire at AMC. The formal green light comes three months after AMC announced it was developing Mayfair as the next show in its Rice universe.” The first book in the Mayfair Witches series is THE WITCHING HOUR, which received this comic book adaptation. 28 copies sold for this comic, giving it a 7-day trend of 185%, and a high sale of $33 for a raw copy.
#13 NEW AVENGERS #11 | MARVEL | 2005
The Ronin suit has clearly become the MacGuffin (an object or device in a movie or a book that serves merely as a trigger for the plot) for the Hawkeye series. It was initially thought that the suit would simply make a quick appearance. However, it really has become “the” object of focus. This issue features the first full appearance of Ronin (with Echo in disguise). Ronin appeared on the Joe Quesada 2nd print cover of New Avengers #1 and the variant for issue #4. Interest in this first Ronin moved 27 copies with a 7-day trend of 100% and had a high sale of $225 for a CGC 9.8.
#14 YOUNG AVENGERS #1 | MARVEL | 2005
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 week, it sold 21 copies, had a 7-day trend of 97%, and had a high sale of $1,148 for a CGC 9.8.
#15 SPAWN #1 | IMAGE | 1992
What’s left to say about SPAWN #1? It has a massive print run and content seems like a ways away… still, Spawn is one of the most beloved modern comic characters that’s driven by nostalgia and McFarlane fans. This week, it sold 20 copies, had a 7-day trend of 116%, and had a massive high sale of $9,995.50 for a rare CGC 9.9.
#16 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 17 copies, had a 7-day trend of 122%, and had a high sale of $120 for a CGC 9.8.
#17 CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS #1 | MARVEL | 2015
Interest in White Fox is growing as Marvel continues to weave the character into numerous comic series. It’s clear that both the publisher and fans greatly enjoy her inclusion. Her first appearance in this issue has already helped books like the Yu 1:25 hit over $100 raw. However, this standard cover which also features White Fox on the cover moved 15 copies with a 7-day trend of 136% and had a high sale of $30 for a raw copy.
#18 JUSTICE LEAGUE INCARNATE #1 BRESSAN & PETERSON (1:25) | DC | 2021
This issue features the first appearance of Dr. Multiverse, who’s featured on the cover of this 1:25 variant. High interest in her first appearance moved 16 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 119%, and a high sale of $86.67 for a raw copy.
#19 AVENGERS #19 | MARVEL | 1965
If you watched the recent episodes, Jacques Duquesne was introduced as Kate Bishop’s Mom’s 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 bring some unpredictable elements to the Disney+ series. His first appearance in this issue continued to have a boost in sales and price with 12 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 160% and had a high sale of $825 for a CGC 8.0.
#20 MIGHTY AVENGERS #1 | MARVEL | 2013
This first appearance of Monica Rambeau as Spectrum is trending again. We will see Monica again in Marvel’s THE MARVELS film. The likelihood of seeing her sooner in some capacity is high. THE MARVELS logo features the Spectrum icon to represent Monica. However, it’s unknown if she’ll be called that. Either way, fans bought up 17 copies, giving it a 7-day trend of 87%, and had a high sale of $160 for a CGC 9.8.
