#7 GRIM #1 3RD PRINT | BOOM! | 2022
Grim has returned to the top ten, this time in the form of a 3rd printing!

#6 SPAWN #38 | IMAGE | 1995
After years of rumors and hints, McFarlane Films has announced they will be developing an adult animated series with wiip, titled RAW10. This series is set to focus on cyber-enhanced animal characters like Fren-Z, Battlesnake, and Cy-Gor. Cy-Gor first debuted in SPAWN 38; however, RAW10 is stated to be separate from the SPAWN universe. Nevertheless, this book has still seen a massive spike in popularity. We tracked 70 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 121%, with a high sale of $279 for a CGC 9.8.
#5 THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #97 | MARVEL | 1984
The Spot was once known as a throwaway joke villain, and he had associated himself with criminals like the Gibbon, Grizzly, and the Kangaroo. He then became a villain for hire, hired out by villains like Tombstone, Mister Negative, and mob boss Sal Donoratti. However, it seems his days of obscurity are over as The Spot has been highlighted as one of the main antagonists in ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE. Due to the recently released image, all of The Spot’s books have increased in popularity and value. This particular book is the first appearance of Jonathan Ohnn, who later debuts as The Spot in SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #98. We tracked 55 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 156%, with a high sale of $180 for a CGC 9.8.

The Spot returns! This book is the villain’s second appearance and first cover appearance (and probably the most iconic cover in a short list of cover appearances). We tracked 51 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 207%, with a high sale of $269 for a CGC 9.8.
#2 THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #98 | MARVEL | 1985
While THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #97 is the first appearance of Jonathan Ohnn, this book marks the first full appearance of his alter ego, The Spot.

We tracked 78 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 145%, with a high sale of $775 for a CGC 9.8.
#1 WONDER MAN #1 | MARVEL | 1991
