Since  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:

By all accounts, fans are loving this series so far. It’s been highly rated and sought after. Add a few first appearances to the mix and you have a hot book! This issue features the debut of Venom-Noir, plant-based symbiote Flora, and a manga version of Venom in Necroko. Well, this 1:25 variant from Okazaki features Necroko front and center, and it has been the pick of the litter for fans. It’s seen a sharp rise since release, and that incline is only getting sharper! We tracked 81 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 141% with a high sale of $190 for a raw copy and a NM FMV of $137.

#2 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 | MARVEL | 1992
Let’s be honest, the Flash film has fallen pretty flat since it debuted. This has led Across the Spider-Verse to claw its way back into the spotlight and hold strong. Spider-Man 2099 was the beloved newcomer of the film (along with many others) and has quickly become the face of this latest installment. Fans have been scouring the internet in search of this book where he features so prominently on the cover. Luckily, it’s plentiful and cheap! We tracked 83 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 112%, with a high sale of $230 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $22.

#3 X-MEN ANNUAL #14 | MARVEL | 1990
We touched on it already, but the community is grabbing the rumor that Channing Tatum is set to play Gambit and running with it. Thus, the age-old argument of which book he first appeared in rears its head. As mentioned, CGC recognizes UNCANNY X-MEN #266 as his first appearance, yet he has much more than a cameo in this book, appearing in 15 panels across 9 pages and is even name-dropped. The confusion arises because this book was released before #266, yet the events within take place after those in #266. It’s all quite confusing and at this point, comes down to preference. But, the debate still rages and will continue until it’s settled once and for all! We tracked 28 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 243%, with a high sale of $225 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $40.

Geez, there is just no getting away from Spider-Boy! Since his debut, he has consistently appeared on either this list or our Runner Up list. But why? A chunk of the community loves him for his relation to the Spidey family, while another loves the mystery behind the character, and yet another loves the potential he holds. Will he be the next Miles? Or will he fall flat and become a forgotten gimmick? If the numbers are to be believed, he’s more than just a gimmick, but we’re all holding on for the ride! We tracked 53 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 101%, with a high sale of $130 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $38.

Many may forget, but Elektra appeared in the Ben Affleck Daredevil and later got her own spin-off film. It was critically and commercially panned, but hey, the nostalgia is flowing these days. Per the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Garner is set to return as Elektra for the upcoming Deadpool 3. This news has caused the comic adaptation of the film to surge into the spotlight once again, a book that few saw coming! We tracked 24 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 214% with a high sale of $22 for a raw copy and a VF FMV of $9.

This book initially wasn’t considered a key, but fans are taking a closer look as it features the first cameo of Starweird. While they aren’t named explicitly, people love new characters across the gamut of Star Wars comics. That, and this issue features Aayla Secura front and center, whose death was retconned in the previous issue. This opened a can of worms in the aftermarket that’s still going strong!

Many news outlets report it as fact, but cbr has the gist of it. Rumors are swirling that Channing Tatum will finally be portraying the character fans have been clamoring for years—Gambit.
