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 SLEEPWALKER #1 | MARVEL | 1991
Well, as we head into 2022, we didn’t expect to ever see Sleepwalker on the Top 10 and Runner up list this time last year. Yet, here he is, on the list for five weeks in a row. As previously noted, there have been rumors of Marvel developing a Sleepwalker project supported with the character appearing in the Hasbro Marvel Legends Series Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness action figure line. With no official word, this still feels like a gamble. Though, collectors are picking these up with the belief that where there’s smoke, there may be fire. This week, it sold 38 copies with a 7-day trend of 94% and a high sale of $420 for a CGC 9.8.

#9 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #365 | MARVEL | 1992
Some books can’t be shaken off of the Top 10 list. And like Spidey himself, this book is sticking to the list. This first appearance of Miguel O’Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099 (via a preview of SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1), is showing no signs of slowing down. It sold 32 copies with a 7-day trend of 121% and had a high sale of $440 for a CGC 9.8.

#8 NEW AVENGERS #7 | MARVEL | 2005
With SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME back in 2021, speculation is now ramping up and focusing on the next MCU release, DOCTOR STRANGE AND THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. There are rumors that this next film will either introduce Marvel’s Illuminati or hint at their existence by introducing some of the key members. Their first appearance is in this issue, helping it move 33 copies with a 7-day trend of 129% and had a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8.

#7 GHOST RIDER #28 | MARVEL | 1992
This book has been hot for a while now. However, strong rumors of Norman Reedus cast as GHOST RIDER have reignited The Midnight Sons’ first cameo appearance. Ghost Rider’s first appearance in 1972’s Marvel Spotlight issue #5 is already costly. This issue is much more affordable low-hanging fruit with 28 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 190%, and had a high sale of $199 for a CGC 9.8.

#6 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Once again, this first Spider-Man 2099 ongoing series returns to the list as it continues its upward trajectory with a massive 72 copies sold. It’s crazy to see a book that littered $1 bins for almost three decades to see such a boost in sales like it’s having now. It had a 7-day trend of 92% and a high sale of $250 for a CGC 9.8.

#5 THE INCREDIBLE HULK #156 | MARVEL | 1972
Rumors are swirling that Bill Murray will play the obscure Marvel character Krylar in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” This character is from a planet called K’ai in the microverse, and it’s his first and only Marvel appearance. This is a new trend where even the most minor appearances are causing pretty large jumps in prices, which sold 19 copies, had a 7-day trend of 373%, and a high sale of $150 for an NM raw copy.

#4 STAR WARS TALES OF THE JEDI #1 | DARK HORSE | 1993
Returning to the list this week, this issue features the first appearances of Ulic Qel-Droma & Cay Qel-Droma. However, per Comicbook.com,” new details have emerged that Lucasfilm could be developing another animated project in the form of Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi. Images have surfaced online featuring the gift given to employees of Lucasfilm, with its packaging featuring the logos of projects that the studio has been developing this year.” Other sources ran with this and helped move 71 copies online with a 7-day trend of 182% and a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8.

#3 MIRACLEMAN #1 | ECLIPSE | 1985
Marvel’s TIMELESS #1 was immensely hot last week. However, Marvel’s teaser image of the Miracleman logo with the caption “How will Miracleman affect the future of the Marvel Universe?” sent collector’s racing online to pick up this first Alan Moore issue. Many fans compare this to the mixed-reviewed DOOMSDAY CLOCK series by DC. Regardless, buyers raced online to pick up a copy of MIRACLEMAN #1, with 52 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 257%, and had a high sale of $90 for a CGC 9.6.

#2 STRANGE ACADEMY #14 | MARVEL | 2021
This issue features the first appearance of Gaslamp, a dark magician who grants wishes (with consequences). This new villain has seen significant traction in our runner-up list over the past several weeks. However, it had a massive surge in sales this week with 117 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 148%, and a high sale of $25 for a raw copy.

#1 TIMELESS #1 HUMBERTO RAMOS MISS MINUTES VARIANT | MARVEL | 2021
Aside from the big build-up to the return of Miracleman, this introduction of Miss Minutes from Disney+’s LOKI into the Marvel comic universe (via cover) made this the hottest book of the week with 186 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 384%, and a high sale of $56 for a raw copy.
