#10 BLACK #1 | BLACK MASK | 2016
Deadline recently reported,”‘The First Purge’ Helmer Gerard McMurray To Adapt ‘Black’ Comic Book For Warner Bros., Studio 8″. This news instantly helped all covers of the first issue trend.

#9 STAR WARS WAR OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS JABBA THE HUTT #1 – BERNARD CHANG | MARVEL | 2021
As we frequently note, Star Wars comics are ripe with the first appearance of characters we can barely pronounce. Due to this, it doesn’t take much to help a Star Wars book trend. Recent highlights around this issue and its various variants are a perfect example of this. This issue features the first full appearance of the Bounty Hunter Deva Lompop. It’s unknown if we’ll see her in future content. However, her fun and unique look have made her a recent fan favorite. We tracked 20 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 144% and had a high sale of $100 for a CGC 9.8. Raw copies are trending at an FMV of $12.
#8 POINT ONE #1 | MARVEL | 2011
There are rumors that both the Richard Rider and Sam Alexandar versions of Nova are in active development. Sam’s first appearance in this issue is still super hot with 32 copies sold, had a 7-day trend of 93%, and had a high sale of $400 for a CGC 9.8. Raw copies are trending at an FMV of $39
#7 DETECTIVE COMICS #647 | DC | 1992
Last week, Variety reported that “‘Gotham Knights’ CW Pilot Casts Anna Lore as Stephanie Brown.” While this issue features the first appearance of Stephanie Brown (who appears as The Spoiler), she has also held the moniker of both Robin and Batgirl. It’s unknown what role she will play in the show, but this key issue is hot either way, with 39 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 113% and a high sale of $60 for a raw copy.
#6 NOVA #1 | MARVEL | 1976
While Sam Alexander as Nova is unconfirmed to appear in the currently in-development NOVA project, Richard Rider’s Nova is almost a sure thing. His first appearance in this issue has been trending ever since Kevin Feige first mentioned it several years ago. With official confirmation, this issue is now on fire, with 42 copies tracked at a 7-day trend of 108% and a high sale of $750 for a CGC 9.6.
#5 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 1980
This highly anticipated Moon Knight Disney+ series is finally here with one episode in and Episode 2 just hours away.

Interest in his first issue spiked last week with 49 copies tracked at a 7-day trend of 105% and a high sale of $800 for a CGC 9.8.
#4 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #93 – GERARDO SANDOVAL (1:25) | MARVEL | 2022
Ben Reily, a clone of Peter Parker, embarks on a new persona as the villain CHASM. This new role will have MANY fans divided.

#3 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #93 – ARTHUR ADAMS – REGULAR | MARVEL | 2022

#2 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #93 – PATRICK GLEASON – WEBHEAD | MARVEL | 2022
Out of all the Chasm variants, this one by Patrick Gleason is the only one with Chasm on the cover (kind of). We tracked 158 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 142%, and a high sale of $25 for a raw copy.
#1 BATMAN BEYOND: THE WHITE KNIGHT #1 | DC | 2022
This issue introduces several new appearances that could turn into future key Bat roles (it’s also a fantastic read). However, it’s currently trending due to a cameo appearance of Red Hood’s sidekick, a new Robin. It was quickly the hottest book of the week with 268 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 345%, and had a high sale of $34 for a raw copy.
