Since Covrprice.com came bagged on the scene, they have become a go to spot for watching eBay trends 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 WOMAN WITHOUT FEAR #1 JEN BARTEL (1:50) | MARVEL | 2022
It’s been a little over a year when Elektra first took on the Daredevil mantle in DAREDEVIL #25. Back then, it was the hottest book of the month, with all covers landing on our Top 10 and dominating the list for weeks. But then, it cooled with values tumbling significantly just a few months later. Many thought Elektra as Daredevil would be short-lived (like 2 or 3 issues short-lived). However, one year later, she is staring in her own title as DAREDEVIL: WOMAN WITHOUT FEAR. This gorgeous Jen Bartel cover was the star of the covers and was hot right out of the gate with 20 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 119%, and had a high sale of $204 for a raw copy.
#9 AMAZING FANTASY #10 | MARVEL | 2005
Recently, actress Laura Donnely was cast in Disney+’s WEREWOLF BY NIGHT HALLOWEEN SPECIAL. While it’s not confirmed who she will be portraying, many speculate on the actress playing Nina Price, Vampire by Night. In the comics, Nina is the niece of Jack Russell, the original Werewolf by Night. It’s also important to remember that it hasn’t been confirmed which Werewolf by Night version actor Gael García Bernal will portray. Still, this was enough to help her first appearance in this issue hit a high sale of $650 for a CGC 9.8.
#8 STAR WARS DARTH VADER #3 | MARVEL | 2015
BOOK OF BOBA FETT – EPISODE 2 surprised everyone and briefly introduced Black Krrsantan (BK), a Wookie Bounty Hunter. His various covers and key appearances are on fire. Though, the big question is where or not Doctor Aphra also exists. Having closely worked with BK through her various series, his appearance does lend proof to her existence and possible future appearance. Her first appearance sold 38 copies this week, had a 7-day trend of 119%, and a high sale of $600 for a CGC 9.8.
#7 DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE BLOODSTONE #1 MARIA WOLF | MARVEL |, 2022
If you haven’t been paying attention to the market, Elsa Bloodstone has been scorching hot in the aftermarket, with her first appearance in BLOODSTONE #1 (2001) and many of her variant covers jumping up in market value. And now, with this issue’s introduction of her sister, Lyra Bloodstone, that heat instantly set all covers for this issue on fire. This “B” cover moved 35 copies, had a 7-day trend of 188%, and had a high sale of $17 for a raw copy.
#6 TIMELESS #1 HUMBERTO RAMOS MISS MINUTES VARIANT | MARVEL | 2021
Miss Minutes is back on the Top 10 for its 3rd week in a row. This is still a book fans are actively seeking. This week, she sold 71 copies, had a 7-day trend of 97%, and a high sale of $68 for a raw copy.
#5 DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE BLOODSTONE #1 IG GUARA DESIGN (1:10) | MARVEL | 2022
As noted, Lyra’s first appearance is clearly driving aftermarket sales. IG Guara’s 1:10 features Lyra on the cover, making this “the one to have.” 71 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 116%, and had a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8 (pre-sale) with a raw FMV of $68.
#4 STAR WARS #20 | MARVEL | 2016
Returning to the list, this issue features the origin of Black Krrsantan’s scar, given to him by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Speculation is very confident that we’ll now most likely see this battle in the Obi-Wan Disney+ series. 49 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 176%, and had a high sale of $40 for a raw copy.
#3 STAR WARS DARTH VADER #1 | MARVEL | 2015
The official first appearance of Black Krrsantan seems to be a solid investment. While Star Wars has a habit of eliminating fan-favorite villains too soon, BK’s reappearance and survival in Episode #3 bodes well for the character’s future appearances and value retention. It sold 88 copies, had a 7-day trend of 128%, and a high sale of $458 for a CGC 9.8.
#2 THOR #20 | MARVEL | 2022
The God of Hammers, free from Mjolnir, is on the warpath to possibly destroy Odin and the Ten Realms. It’s unknown how this revelation will play out, but it doesn’t look good for Thor. This week, it slid down one spot with 134 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 96% and a high sale of $37 for a raw copy.
#1 DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE BLOODSTONE #1 DAVID NAKAYAMA| MARVEL | 2022
Taking the top spot is the first appearance of Lyra Bloodstone with a great cover by David Nakayama. It sold 141 copies with a 7-day trend of 215% and had a high sale of $125 for a CGC 9.8 (pre-sale) with raws at an FMV of $16.
