#18 MARVEL AGE ANNUAL #1 | MARVEL | 1985
Yes, it’s true. This issue is the first appearance of the most well-known and beloved Marvel hero of all time, The Phone Ranger. In all seriousness, this obscure character has become a sought-after spec after a few set photos from LOKI SEASON 2 were leaked on Twitter. One of those images shows a movie theater with a poster for a movie titled Phone Ranger. The poster shows the character in full costume, telephone head, and all. We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 107%, with a high sale of $28.60 for a raw copy.
#19 X-MEN #4 | MARVEL | 1992
Omega Red has been a highly popular (and running joke) character that fans have desired to see in the MCU. For the past couple of weeks, Kevin Feige has been teasing that Phase 4 will reveal its “next big saga” soon. Many fans believe this announcement is about Secret Wars, X-Men, or Kang’s plans. There is a lot of hope that there will be a live-action version of Omega Red in the near future. We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 112%, with a high sale of $166.50 for a CGC 9.8.

The 1:25 ratio is a beautiful piece of art by the highly talented Guillen March. We tracked 21 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 62%, with a high sale of $45 for a raw copy. This is a fantastic long-term variant, and it’s just TOO good!
