As promised, the Covrprice.com runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.
#11 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
The aftershocks from the Spider-Verse trailer are still moving throughout the market. That includes this book, one that has been steadily climbing. It’s cooling down slightly, yet still strong enough to land on our Runner-Up list. Fans are excited and actively picking up the first solo series featuring Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Man 2099. We tracked 28 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 68%, with a high sale of $132.50 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $20.
#12 BATMAN/SPAWN #1 BARNES & NOBLE | DC | 2022
Batman and Spawn returned for a third outing and immediately snagged the spotlight from numerous other high-profile books. It was released with over a dozen variant covers, including this one. While some still sit on the shelves at LCS, this book immediately sold out, shelves bare at the retail giant across the country. The aftermarket quickly became active and remained so as collectors aimed to acquire one of the rarer variants. We tracked 22 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 85%, with a high sale of $31 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $27.
#13 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #365 | MARVEL | 1992
Like the first solo series for Spider-Man 2099, his first appearance saw a lot of action after the first film’s end credit scene and then again with the recent trailer releases. It’s also leveling out, at least until more information comes out that the community can indulge in. Even after knowing he will appear for months with Oscar Issac voicing the character, the community is still pumped, and rightly so! We tracked 38 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 82%, with a high sale of $202.50 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $24.
#14 WOLVERINE #75 | MARVEL | 1993
It’s interesting seeing this book pop up on the list. It’s not a high-profile key or anything, but it is undoubtedly a wanted book! While it has an arguably iconic cover, it was heavily produced and can be found everywhere. It also revealed that Wolverine’s claws are bone after Magneto ripped all the adamantium out of him in a previous crossover issue. It’s an under-the-radar book that moves consistently, and some weeks, enough to be noted on a list like this! We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 113%, with a high sale of $99.95 for a CGC 9.6 and a raw NM FMV of $10.
#15 MARVEL SUPER-HEROES SECRET WARS #1 | MARVEL | 1984
After it was announced Secret Wars would be pushed back until 2026, fans were a bit spectacle of Marvel and if they had bitten off too much. They were relieved to find that Marvel decided to focus on quality over quantity, which was the reason for the delay while announcing the film adaptation would be the conclusion of phase 6. That perked the fanbase up a bit, as this book features the first cameo of The Beyonder in voice and light form, a character that has MASSIVE connotations for the future. We tracked 15 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 127%, with a high sale of $706 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw VF FMV of $46.
#16 EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #4 JOSEMARIA CASANOVAS | MARVEL | 2022
This book appeared on our list several times when it was first released. Featuring several first appearances in Spinstress, Bishop Octopus, Queen Mysteria, and what most fans were after in Sun-Spider, a disabled Spidey. Many welcomed the representation Sun-Spider brought, and that same crowd now hopes for them to appear in the upcoming Across the Spider-Verse. We tracked 14 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 110%, with a high sale of $49.99 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $5.
#17 SPIDER-MAN #1 TODD MCFARLANE REGULAR | MARVEL | 1990
This book is similar to Spawn #1 in many ways. Not only does it come from the mind of the Toddfather, but it also is an incredibly prevalent and iconic book! It also makes an appearance every once in a while as collectors constantly pick up copies, some weeks more than others. It’s a must-have (and affordable) 9.8 display book. With Spidey on the minds of many, it makes sense why some would gravitate toward this issue. We tracked 18 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 83%, with a high sale of $100 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $24.
#18 BOOK OF SLAUGHTER #1 DAN MORA | BOOM! STUDIOS | 2022
The world of Something is Killing the Children quickly became a fan favorite and a must-have new release. This book is the latest in the SIKTC universe after House of Slaughter. A one-shot that focuses on Maxine Slaughter, fans found it a welcome addition as they picked it up in the aftermarket. We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 81%, with a high sale of $12.04 for a raw copy and a VF FMV of $8.
#19 THE NEW MUTANTS #98 | MARVEL | 1991
The first appearance of Deadpool is a big book (yes, Rob Liefeld, it’s the most expensive book on the list and is easily one of the top best-selling aftermarket keys). It also costs a pretty penny and is something people don’t purchase on a whim. That’s why it’s interesting to see it pop up on this list, as numerous fans moved to pick it up in the aftermarket after Shawn Levy confirmed last week that this film would be just as brutal and violent as previous iterations. Enough took those words to heart and picked up a copy. We tracked 13 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 117%, with a high sale of $730 for an NM raw copy and an NM FMV of $354.
#20 UNCANNY X-MEN #266 | MARVEL | 1990
This book arguably started the debate between first appearances and cameos. Originally known as the official first appearance of Gambit, recently, many now consider X-Men Annual #14 as his first appearance as Gambit as he appeared on 15 panels, was named, and spoke. However, this book was meant to be released prior. So where does Gambit’s first appearance lay? We may be seeing the community’s sentiment unfold on this list regarding Gambit. Like Hulk #181, the debate may last forever, with collectors favoring the better cover (this issue). We tracked 11 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 125%, with a high sale of $740 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw VF FMV of $153.
