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 STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #33 – DAVID MARQUEZ | MARVEL | 2023
This book isn’t a key issue, retailer incentive, or store exclusive, and there aren’t any new rumors about Aayla Secura in any live-action projects. Her death was retconned in the previous issue, allowing her to return to the spotlight on this gorgeous cover. Copies of this issue began to hit the aftermarket at breakneck speeds, seeing an immediate increase in demand and value. We’re less than a week out from the debut of this cover, and we have tracked an astounding 46 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 452%, with a high sale of $25 for a raw copy.
#2 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Miguel O’Hara was a major fan favorite even before his spectacular debut in Across the Spider-Verse. His popularity transcended comic fans and crossed over to movie fans, who first ever saw this Spider-Man in cinemas. What keeps Miguel O’Hara on our top lists is that this key issue is affordable and easy to find. It also has a sick cover. We’ll continue to see this comic book perform well as we anticipate O’Hara’s second cinematic appearance. We tracked 96 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 105%, with a high sale of $172.38 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $21.
#3 HULK ANNUAL #1 – GARY FRANK – REGULAR | MARVEL | 2023
After so many books being in the spotlight due to news and rumors, it is nice to see a book trending due to fan love. This book introduces a new character to Hulk’s story, The Eldest. Solicitations for INCREDIBLE HULK 2, releasing in late July, demonstrates that The Eldest is a major player in the war between Hulk and the Mother of Horrors. The solicitation reads, “The Mother of Horrors demands her freedom! And in order to make it happen, her most dutiful servant – a terrifying monstrosity who calls herself the Eldest – seeks to reclaim that wayward son of monsters: the Hulk himself.” Is that enough for you to buy into this issue? It definitely was enough for many as we saw 42 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 222%, with a high sale of $40 for an NM+ raw copy and a raw NM FMV of $19.
#4 SPIDER-MAN #7 – HUMBERTO RAMOS – TOP SECRET SPOILER | MARVEL | 2023
Have you heard about Spider-Boy? This may be the first time we have written about him (sarcasm). Since his reveal three months ago, Spider-Boy has consistently remained on either the Top Ten or Runner-Up lists. His rate of sale has tapered off a bit but still not enough to take him off of our top contenders. Keep on swinging’ Bailey Briggs! We’ll see you next week! We tracked 56 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 97%, with a high sale of $146.50 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $41.
#5 SPAWN #1 | IMAGE | 1992
Spawn is back! No, it’s not a repeat instance—no false alarms. We actually have news coming down the pipeline! The Spawn movie is in production and has an estimated release date! While Jaime Foxx’s uncertain health status is still in question, with years of production and post ahead of it, fans are clearly excited to see that the film is moving forward! We tracked 47 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 107%, with a high sale of $182.50 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $33.
#6 ALL-STAR SUPERMAN #1 | DC | 2005
James Gunn has been turning all the gears on the revamp of the DC cinematic universe. While tensions are still high due to the seemingly sudden upending of all DC continuity, fans are still curious and waiting. Since the announcement of the DC slate, Gunn has been fairly quiet about the progress of the cinematic universe. However, we recently got an update that the new Superman and Lois Lane were cast for Superman: Legacy. This proof that production is moving forward gave steam to this comic. As we see more movement on this movie, many fans are clamoring for their copy of the comic it is based on. We tracked 15 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 336%, with a high sale of $175 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM FMV of $8.
#7 ULTIMATE FALLOUT #4 | MARVEL | 2011
Miles Morales is still seeing great sales as the aftermarket is booming with all things spider-verse. Miles Morales was already a successful character, and his movie was a nice reminder of that fact. He was an excellent successor to take on the mantle of Spider-Man and has been universally loved. The more we see his first appearance make our lists, the more we remember how great it was to be there for his debut in Marvel Comics. We tracked 24 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 108%, with a high sale of $1,990 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $398.
#8 THE SICKNESS #1 | UNCIVILIZED COMICS | 2023
This book is still going strong, trading punches with the likes of Spawn and Spider-Boy! It’s admirable to see how well an indy book is doing in the aftermarket. This book’s popularity is based on the exceptionally positive reviews it received. No media news pump or key appearances has pushed this to the top. It is simply a great comic book, and people want to read it! We tracked 23 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 111%, with a high sale of $27 for a raw copy and an NM FMV of $22.
#9 WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 | MARVEL | 2019
Since early 2020, Agents of Atlas has been rumored to eventually become a part of the MCU. Last month Jennie, a member of a Korean K-Pop group named Blackpink, was rumored to have been offered the role of Luna Snow in an unnamed MCU project. The website, allkpop.com, reported the news and sales of this book took off. However, soon after, Jennie Kim told a Korean news outlet that she had not been in talks with Marvel for any MCU role. We have seen many actors deny rumors in the past, only to find out they were true (we’re looking at you, Andrew Garfield!). With nothing but rumors and a denial from Jennie Kim, this book is still selling strong. These sales indicate that many fans hope to see the team enter the MCU sooner than later! We tracked 23 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 95%, with a high sale of $95 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $24.
#10 RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK #1 | MARVEL | 1981
In 2015, we said goodbye to one of Harrison Ford’s iconic characters in the form of Han Solo’s tragic death. When Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull debuted, we all felt an unfortunately ungratifying ending to the legendary character. Thankfully, Ford returned for one final hurrah as the heroic archeologist. The movie brought fans back to the character’s roots while painfully reminding us that even our heroes are no match for Father Time. Director James Mangold breathed life into a slightly tainted franchise, bringing us an ending worthy of the scholarly adventurer. Perhaps this movie drove enough nostalgia to send fans looking for Indy’s undervalued first appearance once more. With a fantastic cover and all the elements of our childhood, it’s easy to see why we saw this book sell 16 copies, at a 7-day trend of 140% with a high sale of $301.56 for a CGC 9.8 and an NM raw FMV of $12.
