As promised, the Covrprice.com runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.
#11 STAR WARS #20 MIKE MAYHEW SKETCH (1:100) | MARVEL | 2016
While the Alex Ross covers for Darth Vader #1 are the most expensive, this hard-to-find 1:100 (high ratio for such a late issue) takes the runner-up spot as it quickly climbed in price. 16 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 282% and had a high sale of $130.50 for a raw copy.
#12 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Well, after 5 weeks in a row of being in the Top 10, Spider-Man 2099 gets pushed off the list by a Wookie and a Hammer. Yet, don’t stress, it’s still selling very well with 61 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 102%, and a high sale of $255 for a CGC 9.8.
#13 STAR WARS DARTH VADER #1 MOVIE PHOTO (1:15) | MARVEL | 2015
As noted, many of the variants of Black Krrsantan’s first appearance were trending this week. This Vader photo cover sold 15 copies, had a 7-day trend of 233%, and had a high sale of $69 for a raw copy.
#14 STRANGE ACADEMY #14 | MARVEL | 2021
This issue features the first appearance of Gaslamp, a dark magician who grants wishes (with consequences). This new villain is still hanging on with 43 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 122%, and had a high sale of $31 for a raw copy.
#15 THE MIGHTY THOR #12 | MARVEL | 2016
This issue is trending due to its connection to THOR #20. It features Jane Foster’s Thor wondering if the Mjolner is alive since it seems to control her at times. The story dives deep into the history of Mjolner and how “The God Tempest,” a storm that Odin fought, was trapped and forged into a hammer. It’s well known that Donny Cates is a fan of Jason Aaron, leveraging and expanding the stories he created. If this is the case, this will be a key issue for The God of Hammer’s origin. 21 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 192% and had a high sale of $26.45 for a raw copy.
#16 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.

#18 MIRACLEMAN #1 | ECLIPSE | 1985
