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:
#1 THOR GOD OF THUNDER #19 ESAD RIBIC REGULAR | MARVEL | 2014
Once again, rumors are as powerful as confirmed news. According to some leaks, Ben Affleck has been speaking with Marvel about possibly taking on the role of Dario Agger (aka The Minotaur). While the studio hasn’t confirmed anything, these rumors were enough to bring some heat to The Minotaur’s first appearance. Only time will tell if this rumor is true or just a load of “bull.” We tracked 20 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 622%, with a high sale of $100 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $19.
#2 BATMAN/SUPERMAN WORLD’S FINEST #10 DAN MORA HOLIDAY CARD COVER C | DC | 2022
The Guardians of the Galaxy may have Kevin Bacon, but DC has Paul McCartney. While a certain Joker cover delivers a more menacing holiday tone, this cover is much more festive. We see all the heroes enjoying themselves in hopeful and colorful camaraderie. Moreso, it does look like Paul McCartney was there of his own free will (we’re looking at you, Mantis & Drax). While the holidays are being left behind, this book is not. We tracked 65 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 101%, with a high sale of $40 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $31.
#3 BURNING MAN #1 | BAD IDEA | 2022
Bad Idea has returned with new marketing and innovative storytelling ideas to showcase. This book is the start of a possible “infinite narrative.” Bad Idea has allowed readers to choose their path in future publications by following storylines of their own making throughout the run of this series. We’ll see how readers react to this new form of storytelling! We tracked 42 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 112%, with a high sale of $33 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $22.
#4 PETER PARKER AND MILES MORALES SPIDER-MEN DOUBLE TROUBLE #2 GURIHIRU REGULAR | MARVEL | 2022
This light-hearted superhero story delivers a down-to-earth tale. It is coupled with colorful and animated artwork. The characters leap off the page as if they were a Saturday morning cartoon. We learn that even the villains have their own fanbase, with the story primarily taking place at a villain’s convention. Heck, they even have mentoring programs for aspiring villains! In fact, Mysterio’s mentee is what has caused this book to fly off the shelves, debuting the first female Mysterio! We tracked 31 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 139%, with a high sale of $13 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $5.
#5 NOVA #1 | MARVEL | 1976
This book saw some heat when Nova was officially announced in the MCU. Recently, rumors have spread that the Nova project will be a movie, not a Disney+ Limited Series. As we have seen in the past, rumors are just as strong as confirmed news when it comes to moving key issues. We tracked 21 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 140% and a high sale of $1,500 for a CGC 9.9 and a raw VF FMV of $72.
#6 THE JOKER THE MAN WHO STOPPED LAUGHING #3 LEE BERMEJO COVER B | DC | 2022
Keep the holidays going with this festive cover! While the holidays are settling down, this book has yet to cool off. The sales of this book are still going strong. It looks like we have a Christmas classic for the Clown Prince of Crime. We tracked 27 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 103%, with a high sale of $200 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $26.
#7 THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #24 | MARVEL | 1978
Sony has produced many films that have divided the fanbase. However, any news from Sony has still affected the prices of aftermarket comics. Venom, Morbius, Kraven, El Muerto… they all have had their time to shine. Now, it is time for the Hypno-Hustler! Perhaps this villain is the monumental hero Sony needs to win over the majority fanbase. Only time will tell!
#8 HARLEY QUINN #25 JENNY FRISON (1:25) | DC | 2022
It seems like “multiverse” is the keyword for comic properties lately. *SPOILER ALERT* This book ends on a page showcasing multiverse versions of Harley Quinn. Have you ever wanted to see Harley Quinn as a mermaid? How about a bat? Or a mecha? Well, wish granted! On top of all these new variants, Jenny Frison gives us a fantastic cover showcasing Harley and her hyenas, Bud and Lou. As we’ve seen with Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Gwen-Pool, these offshoot variants of Harley COULD take on a life of their own in the future. This is a great book to watch. This ratio cover has sold 31 copies, at a 7-day trend of 65%, with a high sale of $67 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $16.
#9 THE OMEGA MEN #3 | DC | 1983
Since James Gunn tweeted a picture of the titular character, this book has been popping up on our top list. Whenever news about the DC movie verse is announced, traction always helps this book resurface. The latest news comes from DC Studios directly, announcing that their slate of movies will be announced next month. We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 109%, with a high sale of $400 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $100.
#10 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 SALVADOR LARROCA HUSTL. EMINEM (LIMITED 5000) | MARVEL | 2022
Eminem and Spider-Man are still going toe-to-toe in this epic rap battle cover, and their legendary match-up has yet to lose interest. While the book has remained in the $150-$200 range, it hasn’t stopped collectors from continuing to buy this cover. Many of the initial copies were shipped poorly, causing graded 9.8 books to go for a high premium. Additionally, a homage to Javan Jordan’s Hail Crow caused a considerable online debate around nazi symbols included in the initial art, which has since been altered. Despite its recency, this only cemented the original Eminem cover as a modern must-have. We tracked 19 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 92%, with a high sale of $1,750 for a CGC 9.8 copy with a raw NM FMV of $172.
