CovrPrice.Com Runners-Up for Week of 10/28/22

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

The rumor mill is swirling regarding Bloodline, and the aftermarket is feeling the effects! This book features the 2nd appearance of Bloodline and her first cover, along with two more first appearances in Ravenette and Vince. They also happen to be ghost hunters. Marvel is leaning into the supernatural aspect of their deep archives, and the community is loving it if reviews for Werewolf By Night are any indication. With the success of Moon Knight to boot, along with an ethereal whisper from the Daywalker himself, it’s no wonder Bloodline, the daughter of Blade, is quickly receiving a following. We tracked 61 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 246%, with a high sale of $12 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $6.

The Star Wars Visions animated series on Disney+ won over many die-hard fans. The short “The Duel” mixed different beloved genres and created something extraordinary. This series was a fresh take on the Star Wars property, and this prequel features the first appearance of the character known as the Ronin. That’s reason enough to cause some increased interest. We tracked 55 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 222%, with a high sale of $18 for a raw copy with an NM FMV of $5. The hottest part of this book is the heat from the NYCC variant that hit a recent high of $326 raw. The likelihood of that making the Top 10 next week is high.

#13 DAREDEVIL #28 | MARVEL | 2017
The community is ecstatic that the great Charlie Cox as Daredevil has made his MCU debut, along with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. It’s hard to believe that Daredevil will be receiving his own Disney+ series (or is it), and it’s only natural for fans to suspect they shall meet again. With the influence Kingpin exerted over the city of New York, one can’t help but speculate what the end goal is for that character. Mayor perhaps? Well, he just so happens to appear in that capacity in this book, a fascinating idea to potentially see play out on the screen. We tracked 10 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 212%, with a high sale of $18 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $7.

James Tynion is quickly becoming a titan in the industry. With works like Department of Truth and a little something called Something is Killing the Children, the community wasn’t sure he would be able to replicate that magic three times. But he did, by creating a beloved story with fans picking up each new release in droves. Many find themselves returning to the first issue, moving to secure a copy for their collections as rumors swirl. We tracked 12 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 144%, with a high sale of $75.56 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $17.

As mentioned in our Top Ten, news from the Hollywood Reporter surfaced discussing Matt Reeves’s ambitions with the Batman IP and some of its rogue’s gallery, aiming to develop several projects as periphery add-ons to The Batman. One of those villains happens to be Professor Pyg, a sadistic but interesting and newer addition to the rogue’s gallery, having (somewhat debatably) first appeared in this book. Folks are buying this book up on the off chance these rumors, or reports, become a reality, hoping that the Matt Reeves project comes true as many feel the darker nature of The Batman would suit Professor Pyg. We tracked 18 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 200%, with a high sale of $52 for a CGC 9.6 and raw NM+ FMV of $17.

Another variant for a book mentioned, well, heavily featured from our Top Ten, makes an appearance. Yet, this variant oozes the aesthetic of the nuclear fallout-themed book, being glow-in-the-dark and all. With a name like Geiger, who wouldn’t make a glow version? Fans are feeling it, picking up copies of this variant due to the recent news. We tracked 27 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 142%, with a high sale of $60 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $8.

Peach Momoko crushed this 1:25 variant for this interesting new series. It has this uncanny knack for making your skin crawl. As mentioned in our Top Ten, a dark Spider-Man has been explored prior with the depiction of the Superior Spider-Man. But that wasn’t the real Spider-Man. This book has been hot coming out of the gate as fans are eager to see Spider-Man as a bad boy, far from what Sam Raimi attempted in Spider-Man 3! We tracked 32 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 53%, with a high sale of $33 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $20.

#18 DC COMICS PRESENTS #49 | DC | 1982
Fans are clamoring for more of Cavill’s Superman and a future team up with Shazam to take on Black Adam, much like they did in this book. With the Rock’s support behind Cavill, fans feel strongly enough to pick up some copies in force! We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 61%, with a high sale of $199 for a CGC 9.4 and a raw VF FMV of $62.

#19 SPAWN #1 | IMAGE | 1992
As frequently noted, Spawn is one of the most beloved modern comic characters. Driven by nostalgia and McFarlane fans, his first appearance remains the BEST and most consistent aftermarket seller, year after year. McFarlane’S content news and CGC signing have landed TWO Spawn #1 on the Top 10/Runner-ups. This has all factored into this week’s trends as Spawn’s reign continues with 24 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 109%, with a high sale of $230 for a CGC 9.8 and an NM FMV of $29.

#20 THE NEW MUTANTS #98 | MARVEL | 1991
Despite its fall from the Top 10 and the eventual fall from the Runner-ups, Deadpool’s first appearance is still trending post-Deadpool 3/ Wolverine teaser. This key issue is a powerhouse modern grail that should continue to trend upward for the next several years. We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 84%, with a high sale of $2,080 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $546.
