Top Ten for Week of 4/22/22

Since  came 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 BLACK PANTHER #3 | MARVEL | 2022
Tosin is back on the list! When Bleeding Cool reported that Tosin was possibly the new Miles Morales, this book flew off the shelves. The Wakandan youth has garnered the attention of the collective fandom with his unique perspective and use of vibranium. Tosin breathes new life into the old ways of Wakanda, and this book provides a strong set-up for what will likely be a long-term player in the Black Panther mythos. Wakanda forever! This week we tracked 16 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 117% and a high sale of $300 for a CGC 9.8.

Jenny Frison continues to add to her long list of iconic covers. From her hip-hop Ms. Marvel #1 cover to her dynamic set of Something is Killing the Children #1 variants, this is yet another highly desirable Frison cover. Aside from the phenomenal artwork, this book also introduces characters such as the Smiling Man, Mr. Agony, and Mr. Ecstasy. We tracked 22 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 89%, with a high sale of $280 for a raw copy.

Takashi Okazaki blows it out of the water with this amazing bubble gum cover of Spider-Punk 1! The 1:50 ratio keeps Spider-Punk’s solo series in the top ten. However, the cover isn’t the only desirable aspect of this book. It also introduces hardcore rocker variants of some well-known characters, like Kraven the Hunter, Taskmaster, and a new version of Riri Williams as Riot Heart! We tracked 16 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 186%, with a high sale of $229.50 for a raw copy.

This issue features the first full appearance of Howie, a werewolf-like character with possible ties to WEREWOLF BY NIGHT. Note that he appears in multiple panels in issue #10, which will lead to debate on whether issue #16 should even be deemed the first appearance. For now, fans helped get this back on the Top 10 with 29 sold copies tracked, a 7-day trend of 103%, and a high sale of $20 for a raw copy.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA returns to the Top 10 this week. If you recall, a new show was announced back in October. However, a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that this reboots’ showrunner moved on to another project. While not dead, this does mean it will be significantly pushed back. Despite this delay, several online sources touted this as a book to pick up ASAP, which sent buyers picking up a copy. We tracked 42 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 71%, and a high sale of $70 for a CGC 9.4.

Ben Reily, a clone of Peter Parker, embarks on a new persona as the villain CHASM. This new role will have MANY fans divided. Out of all the Chasm variants, this one by Patrick Gleason is the only one with Chasm written across the cover. We tracked 33 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 95% and a high sale of $23.50 for a raw copy.

#4 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
What once was found in dollar bins has become a top ten seller! This book is a perfect example of how powerful the media’s influence is on the current market. Since his first appearance in an end credit scene of SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, Miguel O’Hara’s marvelous book has been steadily increasing in value. These sales will likely continue well up to (and after) the movie’s release. This week we tracked 41 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 100% and a high sale of $210 for a CGC 9.8, with FMV standing at $189. A CGC 9.8 newsstand sits at a comfortable FMV of $932!

Fans are already gearing up for DR. STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. There’s plenty of anticipation for Brother Voodoo to be included in the film. As noted before, the market has moved well past from just first appearances trending. For example, take this issue, where Dr. Strange and Brother Voodoo meet for the first time. This first meeting sold 29 copies, had a 7-day trend of 151%, and had a high sale of $395 for a CGC 9.8, not bad for a 40-year-old book!

#2 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 1980
While this has been hot for over a year now, the Moon Knight Disney+ series has been lighting his first series on fire. Unlike any other piece of Marvel content, this series offers the audience an intriguing and unpredictable new addition to the MCU. Word is the next couple of episodes are the best and will set the table for Moon Knights’ future MCU appearances. Confident buyers jumped into his first issue by picking up 59 copies at a 7-day trend of 91% and a high sale of $950 for a CGC 9.8.

The cameo appearance of a new Robin (and Red Hood’s sidekick) continued to be one of the hottest books of the week with 61 copies (down from last week’s 119) sold, a 7-day trend of 101% and had a high sale of $22.38 for a raw copy. However, the current raw FMV is $18.
