#11 MS. MARVEL: THE NEW MUTANT #1 – ARTHUR ADAMS (1:50)
In case you missed it, Kamala Khan made a big splash in the MCU when a dialogue exchange alluded to her powers being derived from a mutation in her DNA. Could Kamala Khan be the first mutant to debut in the MCU? Many fans think so, especially with Ms. Marvel’s latest comic plot. After the death of Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan has been reborn as a mutant. This change has fueled the fire that Kamala Khan is the beginning of the X-Men in the MCU. If it is true, this book holds a bit of significance, as it is the first appearance of Ms. Marvel as a mutant. Throw in a legendary artist like Arthur Adams and make this cover a retailer incentive; you’ve got a recipe for a highly collectible comic cover. We tracked 25 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 55%, with a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $34.

Another unique part of this book is that this book is the first publication for a new publisher, DSTLRY. DSTLRY is the first publishing company founded/owned entirely by creators. In addition to creators owning a piece of the publishing company, they own their work wholly. This is a massive milestone for creator’s rights and a first step away from big publishing companies.

#18 THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL.1 #121
Speaking of iconic covers in Spider-Man history, no collection is complete without the death of Gwen Stacy. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this historic moment in comic history. Earlier this year, we saw Marvel push a marketing plan that insinuated an upcoming comic death would have the same significance as Gwen Stacy’s death. That event was the death of Ms. Marvel, who was recently revived. Whether this carries the same importance or not is up to fans of Spider-Man.
