#10 SPIDER-VERSE #6 | MARVEL | 2020
This issue features many first appearances: The Spinster, Sea-Spider, Spider-Requiem, Garden-Spider, Spider-Sting, V, Sun-Spider, Spidair, and White Widow. SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE is traveling various dimensions, set to feature over 200 characters! With so many characters appearing, some of these first appearances are bound to grace the silver screen, even for a brief moment. The many first appearances in this book have landed it a spot on this week’s list! We tracked 13 copies sold last week with a 7-day trend of 125% and had a massive sale of $1,575 for a CGC 9.8. The raw copies have gone nuts too.

Thor is back in the top 10 this week! Gorr’s first appearance reclaims a spot in the top ten as fans hold tight, waiting to see the first glimpse at Christian Bale’s God Butcher! This book will likely hit new highs when we finally see Gorr in future Thor trailers. We tracked 19 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 93%, with a high sale of $480 for a CGC 9.8.

The new Robin’s cameo has found another way back into the top ten. Released just last week, Sean Murphy’s beautifully illustrated ratio, virgin variant, left the printing press on fire. In less than a week, we tracked 15 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 120%, with a high sale of $100 for a raw copy.

#7 VENGEANCE #1 | MARVEL | 2011
The MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS is here! The debut of America Chavez in the film has shined the spotlight back on her first appearance. Without spoiling any elements of the movie, Xochitl Gomez gave a stellar performance as America Chavez. For the foreseeable future, America is here to stay in the MCU. We tracked 23 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 111%, with a high sale of $1,250 for a CGC 9.8.

Another MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS book lands in the top ten. After first appearing in the Disney+ WHAT IF? animated series, Captain Carter is seen in a teaser trailer for the MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS movie. It’s only fitting that the same art style on the cover of her first solo series would be as well received. We tracked 22 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 129%, with a high sale of $325 for a raw copy.

#5 THOR #1 | MARVEL | 2014
The first cover appearance of Jane Foster as Thor is iconic, leading fans to think of this book when thinking of the character. That trend continued after the trailer for THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER debuted, as we tracked 32 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 89%, with a high sale of $501 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw FMV of $80.

#4 EXILES #3 | MARVEL | 2018
This is an interesting book to see in the top 10. The cover of this book has Peggy Carter in a Captain America outfit, which has led some to believe that this is the first appearance of Captain Carter, which is incorrect. As mentioned, this is the first appearance of Peggy Carter, uniformed as Captain America, which is an entirely different character. The first appearance of Captain Carter in comic books was her March 2022 series, in CAPTAIN CARTER #1. However, for the time being, the fandom is clamoring for this harder-to-find issue. We tracked 31 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 95%, and a high sale of $500 for a CGC 9.8.

WWE fans are no strangers to the 2022 Hall of Famer, Shad Gaspard, who wrote ASSASSIN AND SON #1. For those that are not fans of WWE, you might enjoy the fun fact that Shad provided the motion capture for the infamous Kratos in 2018’s God of War. Last week, news broke that this series was optioned for a movie by State Street Pictures. Since the announcement, this book has garnered increased interest. We tracked 30 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 203%, with a high sale of $80 for a CGC 9.8.

#2 NEW AVENGERS #7 | MARVEL | 2005
The MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS has teased the debut of many new characters and new team appearances. Once the Illuminati were confirmed in the most recent trailer, fans flocked to pick up the first appearance of the legendary marvel group. Since the film is still fresh, we’ll keep our mouths shut about the mind-blowing experience awaiting first-time viewers! We tracked 67 sales with a 7-day trend of 96% and a high sale of $415 for a CGC 9.8 and raw copies at an FMV of $72.

Another interesting book to see in the top ten list! The season finale of MOON KNIGHT had many twists and turns, one of which was seeing the fantastic Layla spread her wings and soar into a brand new role (quite literally). Marvel has since confirmed her new identity as the Scarlet Scarab. What is interesting about this book is that there is no apparent connection between the TV portrayal of the hero and the comic book counterpart. This is the 1st appearance of the second Scarlet Scarab, the son of the 1st Scarlet Scarab, who debuted in INVADERS #23. Regardless of this disconnect, this book has seen a massive increase in sales since the conclusion of the MOON KNIGHT series. We tracked 27 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 551%, with a high sale of $345 for a CGC 9.6.
