CovrPrice.Com Runners-Up for Week of 6/10/22

As promised, the runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.

Star Wars hype is in full swing again with the release of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Eagle-eyed watchers spotted a High Republic easter egg in episode 3 that sent them searching for key High Republic issues. As Kenobi moves through a safe house, a symbol of the High Republic is briefly visible, specifically an iteration of the High Republic symbol from the novel “Light of the Jedi.” However, this issue also features the first appearances of Bell Zettifar, Ember, Indeera Stokes, Loden Greatstorm, and Porter Engle. This week, this book’s trend is primarily due to the recent confirmation that Porter Engle will be getting his own solo comic series. We tracked 11 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 112%, with a high sale of $31.59 for a raw copy.

#12 BLACK PANTHER #3 | MARVEL | 2022
Tosin officially (and FINALLY) appears in the upcoming BLACK PANTHER #7. Once again, fans are picking up his first appearance in Black Panther #3 (though they really never stopped). We’re all eager to see the continued development of one the hottest new Marvel characters. This week, we tracked 13 copies with a 7-day trend of 99% and had a high sale of $255 for a CGC 9.8 with raw copies at an FMV of $48.

The excitement for She-Hulk has ebbed slightly, falling to our runner-up list as anticipation for other projects take some of the spotlight. While many are chasing She-Hulk’s first appearance, the meta-aware (and third-wall breaking) first issue of her second series has garnered much interest. She-Hulk finds her specific tone and style in this series that has carried through her numerous comic book series and provided inspiration for the upcoming Disney+ show. We tracked 40 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 96%, with a high sale of $122.50 for a CGC 9.6.

#14 THOR #1 | MARVEL | 2014
This first cover appearance of Jane Foster as Thor has been a repeat resident of our Top 10 and runner-up lists over the past weeks. With the first full trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder finally dropping and the continued release of images from the film, it’s easy to see why fans steadily pick this book up. We tracked 45 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 93%, with a high sale of $270 for a CGC 9.8.

While this is her second appearance on this list, it’s telling She-Hulk is still going strong. After the recent full trailer (and then a corrected version with updated graphics) of the SHE-HULK series from Disney+, this book has finally picked up its speed. Disney appeared to take notes from the production of Sonic, tweaking some CGI and watching a large majority of detractors fade away. Despite tracking 26 copies with a 7-day trend of 73%, this week’s high sale of $889.95 for a CGC 9.8 is a price drop compared to previous weeks.

Miles Morales and Spider-Man, in general, certainly lend themselves to multiverse timeline shenanigans. What would happen if Miles’ evil clone, Selim, won in a pitched battle against our hero? This current arc aims to answer those questions! While searching for his uncle Aaron, Miles comes across a new Spider hero, Spider-Smasher, who is none other than his grown-up baby sister Billie leading the rebellion against Selim. Fans knew this was coming due to leaks and solicitations, grabbing up this book and its variants at speed as the hype built. This 1:10 concept design from Christopher Allen is seeing some heat behind it, with Billie Morales Spider-Smasher cover art front and center. 21 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 89%, and had a high sale of $15 for a raw copy.

Collectors and fans have spoken, and they want more Gorr! Key books in a storied run tend to get a bump when adaptations make their way to the big screen, and this book is no different, being the first mention of Gorr the God Butcher, played by Christian Bale. The excitement for Bale’s iteration of Gorr is palpable, as he has a tremendous amount of excellent source material to choose from. After the latest Thor trailer, Gorr remains on the brain as collectors continue to pick up books he is featured or mentioned in. We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 91%, with a high sale of $155 for a CGC 9.8.

Secret Wars continues to be the talk of the community, landing back on our list as fans continue seeing and breaking down MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. Where the MCU will head is anyone’s guess (except Kevin Feige), but collector sentiment is pointing toward this Spidey key. Doubling as the origin of the symbiote that comprises Spider-Man’s black suit, which later becomes Venom, and appearing in the first Secret Wars event, this sought-after book is always in demand. While not the first appearance of the symbiote suit, collectors often pick this up as if it were. With a new universal threat looming in the MCU and with a piece of Venom left behind during the end credits of NO WAY HOME, collectors are leaning on this issue that would bridge the gap between epic MCU events and the introduction of a fan-favorite suit/character into the MCU proper. We tracked 14 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 105%, with a high sale of $840 for a CGC 9.8.

#19 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Since his first appearance in an end credit scene of SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, Miguel O’Hara’s nostalgic first solo-series issue has been steadily increasing in value. These sales will likely continue well up to (and after) the movie’s release, especially as rumors of a live-action depiction of the character, also featuring Oscar Isaac, continue to stick around. This week we tracked 12 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 123% and a high sale of $200 for a CGC 9.8.

#20 MOON KNIGHT #1 | MARVEL | 1980
While this has been hot for over a year now, the Moon Knight Disney+ show lit his first series on fire! With the show’s conclusion, fans weren’t wrong when they felt like they witnessed one of the most unpredictable and complex additions to the MCU. Confident buyers can’t help but picture Moon Knight’s next outing, or next to Mahershalla Ali’s Blade, picking up 14 copies at a 7-day trend of 99% and a high sale of $280 for a CGC 9.6.
