As promised, the Covrprice.com runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.
#1 BATMAN/SUPERMAN WORLD’S FINEST #11 JACK WHITE III COVER D | DC | 2023
First Biggie, then Eminem, Paul McCartney, and now, Jack White? Jack White (of the White Stripes) makes his comic creation and debut with this cover, continuing the trend and dominance of books featuring musical artists. Each has appeared in our top spot on the Top Ten over the past several months, so he’s in good company. Jack White also happens to be a massive comic fan, especially those of the DC variety (specifically Golden Age Batman and Superman and the owner of many incredible keys). It’s fitting he would debut on a Batman/Superman-centric book! A dream come true for a fellow nerd. We tracked 234 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 372%, with a high sale of $112 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $51.
#2 WAKANDA #4 | MARVEL | 2023
Tosin quickly became a fan-favorite character, with his first appearance continuously commanding premium prices. Marvel has rumored “big” plans for him, evidenced by their recent introduction of his love interest, Kime. This book marks her first appearance, and another character the community feels has a bright future. This also features an awesome Tosin cover! We tracked 82 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 133%, with a high sale of $22 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $16.
#3 THE ATLANTIS CHRONICLES #4 | DC | 1990
This book features the first appearance of Kordax, a green-skinned ancestor to Aquaman that rivals his power. While Aquaman 2 has been put on the back burner due to the turbulence surrounding DC, it’s reportedly still happening. Rumors are swirling that Kordax could appear in the sequel. While neither confirmed nor dispelled, the community is still picking up copies (just in case). We tracked 37 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 280%, with a high sale of $20 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $10.
#4 BIKER MICE FROM MARS #1 | MARVEL | 1993
Per ComicBook, the nostalgia trip that is The Biker Mice from Mars is set to return! A relic of the past has been revived and slapped with a new series AND toy line! This excited fans, who immediately turned to the aftermarket to secure the first issue in their brief comic run. BMFM began as a TV series before branching out, quite the opposite of their long-time rivals, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We tracked 15 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 501%, with a high sale of $225 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw VF FMV of $15.
#5 VENOM #15 EJ SU COVER D (1:25) | MARVEL | 2023
So far, the Dark Web storyline has the interest of the community and has offered several fantastic covers. This 1:25 from EJ Su is stunning and immediately became THE variant to get, even outpacing the limited books. How could it not, with a blood-red cover and the hand of Spider-Man reaching from a wicked-toothed maw? Glorious. We tracked 47 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 146%, with a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $44.
#6 BITCH PLANET #1 | IMAGE | 2014
Bitch Planet is another book reportedly set to be adapted by Amazon into a TV series, and this one features a more PG-13 rating. When the world is full of criminals, a prison opens off-planet solely populated by women. Orange is the New Black in space, anyone? This excited fans as we tracked 42 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 158%, with a high sale of $85 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $11.
#7 SEX CRIMINALS #1 | IMAGE | 2013
This book is making the comics code authority roll over in its grave. It features a storyline about two people, Suzie and John, who figure out they can stop time and steal whatever they want when they orgasm. Odd, but promising, enough so that it was recently reportedly optioned by Amazon! We tracked 23 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 179% with a high sale of $122 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $19.
#8 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #14 2ND PRINT ED MCGUINNESS B&W (1:25) | MARVEL | 2023
While the dame behind the mask, Janine Godbe, debuted long ago, her first proper appearance as Hallow’s Eve was in this book. Fan reception for the new villain was tremendous, enough to help propel this book to a 2nd printing. Hallow’s Eve also has a solo title set to debut after the Dark Web storyline, and the fanbase is gearing up for it. We tracked 16 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 231%, with a high sale of $205 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $151.
#9 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #17 ED MCGUINNESS COVER E (1:25) | MARVEL | 2023
Rek-Rap or Parker backwards is still going strong, especially with this being the only variant to feature him on the cover! The community is still determining if he will be a throwaway or a mainstay, but they feel confident enough to secure a copy of his first appearance. Another first appearance of the Insidious Six adds to the fanfare. We tracked 36 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 99%, with a high sale of $26 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $19.
#10 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 SALVADOR LARROCA HUSTL. EMINEM (LIMITED 5000) | MARVEL | 2022
Who knew a rap battle between Eminem and Spider-Man would garner so much interest? This book is still going strong and is maintaining the momentum that propelled it onto our Top Ten since its release. The fire beneath this hot book is due to the relative scarcity of high-grade copies as they were shipped poorly, leading to 9.8 (and above) books selling for high premiums. Still, this book has become a grail for many, sending them to the aftermarket to acquire it. We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 134%, with a high sale of $1,100 for a CGC 9.8 copy with a raw NM FMV of $176.
