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 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
The Flash has, unfortunately, been somewhat of a box-office disappointment. It was expected to be the main competition against Spider-man: Across the Spider-Verse. Yet, the latter has come out on top, driven by a top-tier script and excellent voice performances, like Oscar Isaac as Miguel O” Hara, AKA Spider-Man 2099. Fans continue to flock to this prevalent and cheap key, featuring the first ongoing issue for the futuristic crime fighter. 2099 was perfectly placed as the oil to the water that is Miles Morales Spider-Man, both with the same ultimate goal but going about it in entirely different ways. There is much more in store for ole Miguel, and the fans can’t wait to see it. We tracked 98 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 94%, with a high sale of $200 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $22.
#2 SHE-HULK #3 | MARVEL | 2004
If you have yet to hear, the identity of Spider-Boy has been revealed. Leaked ahead of release, his name is officially Bailey Briggs. That led to a rush for this book on the aftermarket as it features a character by the same name. However, this Bailey is a murdered Hammer Aeronautics engineer and returns as a ghost. Our dear Spider-Boy is clearly not a ghost, so an inference can be made that they’re not the same person. Yet this book has remained in the top 10 for two weeks, which is intriguing. Dan Slott also wrote this book, another connection the two share. There could be something larger at play here. We tracked 27 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 309%, with a high sale of $50 for a raw copy and a VF FMV of $11.
#3 HULK ANNUAL #1 – GARY FRANK – REGULAR | MARVEL | 2023
This book saw a nice run after its May 2023 release due to this issue being a prelude and original story for the new Hulk run! While also featuring the first appearance of the Eldest, fans have met this new series with high reviews and high expectations for subsequent issues. We tracked 40 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 156%, with a high sale of $55 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $13.
#4 SPIDER-MAN #7 – HUMBERTO RAMOS – SPOILER | MARVEL | 2023
As mentioned last week, Spider-Boy is here to stay. This book was all the rage when it was released, amplified by last week’s Edge of Spider-Verse #3 revealing his face and full name, Bailey Briggs. Additionally, there’s a solicitation for a future solo run, and all signs point to significant plans for the forgotten sidekick. While sales are still impressive, we are seeing a downtrend as we tracked 41 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 95%, with a high sale of $123 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $34.
#5 MARVEL SUPER-HEROES SECRET WARS #8 | MARVEL | 1984
We’ve said all we can about this book over the numerous times it’s popped up on this list. It’s a modern grail that features the origin of the black suit that would later become Venom. Every few weeks, there’s a strange surge of sales, like this week’s traction of 35 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 105%, with a high sale of $680 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $156.
#6 THE SICKNESS #1 | UNCIVILIZED COMICS | 2023
Tales of the macabre and the melancholy are indeed experiencing a renaissance as of late. This book falls into that camp, a black-and-white story about a mysterious illness that makes people lose their marbles. Because it was from a small publishing house, it flew under the radar upon release. That is, until folks got their hands on it, and positive reviews helped it spread like wildfire. Securing a copy within the aftermarket was challenging, hence the price surge. However, many fans were able to secure a copy from Uncivilized’s website. As those buyers receive their orders, expect more copies to be listed. We tracked 29 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 127%, with a high sale of $25 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $22.
#7 WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 | MARVEL | 2019
“Jennie (of BLACKPINK) will be a team member on the first-ever Asian superhero team in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She’ll be playing K-pop singer and superhero Luna Snow, aka Seol Hee; who manipulates ice to protect people in the Pacific Rim and around the world. Like Jennie, Luna Snow speaks both Korean and English.” The rumor first appeared on ALLKPOP. It’s still going strong with no definite signs of debunking. However, that hasn’t stopped the internet from running with it! We tracked 35 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 128%, with a high sale of $100 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $39
#8 COYOTES #1 | IMAGE | 2017
Coyotes was recently thrust into the limelight when it was announced “Selena Gomez and Jordan Peele are developing a series adaptation for Prime Video. The series follows a group of women who take a stand against a legion of werewolves that have been hunting them. This book got hot quickly but is seeing some moderate cool-down this week. We tracked 21 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 139%, with a high sale of $124 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $16.
#9 THE TRANSFORMERS #11 | MARVEL | 1985
Jetfire is back! The community was pumped to see him make a return in Void Rivals #1, moving to pick up his first appearance on the aftermarket. That trend continues this week, now that Void Rivals has made it into the hands of even more collectors as they anticipate he will play a significant role in future properties. We tracked 24 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 113%, with a high sale of $165 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw VF FMV of $8.
#10 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #209 | MARVEL | 1980
Well, the new Kraven trailer certainly has the fandom divided. What has them less divided is the excitement for Calypso, played by Ariana DeBose in the upcoming Kraven film. Originally the one who bestowed powers onto Kraven, many anticipate she will hold the same role in the upcoming film. Collectors visited the aftermarket to secure a copy of her first appearance. We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 165%, with a high sale of $287 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw VF FMV of $44.
