Since Covrprice.com came on the scene, they have become a go to spot for watching eBay trends on comics. They scour thousands of eBay sales to cultivate data to spotlight the hottest selling comics. Here is this week’s Top Ten Comics:
Due to the Holidays, Covrprice only released the Top Ten list with no Runners Up list.
#1 BATMAN/SUPERMAN WORLD’S FINEST #10 DAN MORA HOLIDAY CARD COVER C | DC | 2022
The holidays tend to cause holiday-themed books to spike as the holiday spirit infects us. This book is no different, with Dan Mora bringing the prominent members of DC comics together for a holiday party. This book also continues the trend of featuring well-known musical artists on their covers, with Paul McCartney belting out a Christmas tune with none other than Superman. The holiday spirit was strong with this one, leading to many books moving in the aftermarket. We tracked 71 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 535%, with a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $40.
#2 THE JOKER THE MAN WHO STOPPED LAUGHING #3 LEE BERMEJO COVER B | DC | 2022
Tis’ the season for low-key morbid (yet awesome) holiday-themed Joker covers! Lee Bermejo killed this cover, and the fan response has been nothing short of absolute. It continues to move copies after three weeks at or near the top of our Top Ten list. With the holidays upon us and this being a holiday cover, it’s fitting to see its continued success. If it can keep that up in the new year is anyone’s guess, but until then, it will keep its spot in our Top Ten. We tracked 57 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 131%, with a high sale of $200 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $24.
#3 SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #24 | MARVEL | 1978
Like many books on our list (such as the first appearance of El Muerto), this book also had a meteoric rise from obscurity to the front page due to a surprise announcement. Recent news dropped from Sony that Donald Glover has been cast in a movie featuring the Hypno-Hustler. It continues to see some movement, albeit at less than half the level it saw last week. Many are still looking for this book in back issue bins, but that will only last for a while as all eyes are now searching for this obscure (yet excellent) villain. We tracked 32 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 180%, with a high sale of $155 for a reported 9.0 NM raw copy with an FN FMV of $42.
#4 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Fans are PUMPED for him to debut on the big screen and continue to snag copies when they can. Luckily, these books were dollar bin fodder for years and are everywhere. But high-grade copies are tough to get as that iconic red foil cover was easily damaged. We tracked 41 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 115%, with a high sale of $170 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $20.
#5 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #365 | MARVEL | 1992
Fitting the first ongoing series from Spider-Man 2099 would come in right next to his first appearance. Finally, fans got a peek at Spider-Man 2099 in the recent Across the Spider-Verse trailer and loved it! We’ve known he was coming for months after announcements Oscar Isaac would be voicing the character, but that hasn’t dulled the communities excitement. The community has been reinvigorated, continuing to pick up his first appearance after a cool down earlier in the year. We tracked 38 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 118%, with a high sale of $199 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $32.
#6 THE KEEP #1 | IMAGE | 2005
Per Comicbook.com, The Keep has been optioned, set to be developed by Greg Nicotero of Walking Dead fame. An adaptation itself, The Keep has flown under the radar until news reached fans. Books were snapped up in a hurry, with the aftermarket becoming a figurative ghost town as this horror book is pretty challenging to find! We tracked 12 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 203%, with a high sale of $30 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $14.
#7 THE OMEGA MEN #3 | DC | 1983
After a two-week hiatus from our list, Lobo is back and in the Top Ten. Movement for the first appearance of Lobo has remained strong as the situation over at DC continues to develop. Per Collider, Jason Mamoa’s take on Aquaman will end after the third film. Obviously, that frees Mamoa up to play a self-professed favorite character of Lobo in future features. It may never come to pass, but the passion brewing for the character at DC is certainly raising some eyebrows among fans. We tracked 27 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 98%, with a high sale of $450 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $92.
#8 CATWOMAN #50 SOZOMAIKA FOIL (1:50) | DC | 2022
Sozomaika Catwoman variant covers appeared on our list through a good chunk of 2022. Well, with the most recent release, we see that trend continue! Fans have absolutely loved their take on Catwoman and have made that sentiment known as they visit the aftermarket to secure a copy of this hard-to-find 1:50 foil variant. We tracked 16 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 154%, with a high sale of $100 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $68.
#9 VAULT OF SPIDERS #1 | MARVEL | 2018
Yet another book spiking due to the upcoming mega event that is SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE. To go with the recent trailer, a poster for the film was also released. It features a literal ARMY of Spidey folks, one of which was definitively Spider-Byte, a cybercrime fighter who first appears in this book. Savage Spider-Man also debuted in this book and is POSSIBLY featured on the poster as well. We tracked 25 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 77%, with a high sale of $119 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $15.
#10 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #258 DIRECT EDITION | MARVEL | 1984
While he has maintained his position in the Top Ten, Bombastic Bag Man is still unknown to many fans. After Peter separates from the Symbiote that later becomes Venom, Johnny Storm hooks his buddy up with a paper bag to conceal his identity. Thus, Bombastic Bag Man (who first appeared in this book) was born! Soon, he will jump from page to screen after being spotted in the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse trailer. Fans opted to continue picking up this book in the hopes it would be a memorable outing. We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 133%, with a high sale of $345 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw VF FMV of $26.
