As promised, the Covrprice.com Top 10 Runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.
11. BIRDS OF PREY #3 – OTTO SCHMIDT (1:25)
The community has spoken, and they want more heroines and those a bit villainous gracing their variant covers! Black Canary gets the spotlight this time, as this 1:25 Schmidt variant saw some serious movement last week. With the recent launch of this current Birds of Prey run, Black Canary has been a focus. Now, she’s one the aftermarket is focusing on. We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 136%, with a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $55
12. YOUNG AVENGERS #1
*SPOILERS FOR THE MARVELS*
If you recall, this book saw unprecedented sales just a few short years ago during the hype of WanaVision. It features a gaggle of first appearances like Wiccan, Kate Bishop, Hulkling, Patriot, and Iron Lad, three of whom we would see adapted, and three others from the second Young Avengers iteration. The community mused Marvel would head the Young Avengers route before things calmed down. Thanks to The Marvels end credit scene that leaked teasing the Young Avengers, some heat is again building. We tracked 15 copies sold at a 7-day trend of X% with a high sale of $316 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $80.
13. DAZZLER VOL.1 #1
Yes, this book is still hot and likely will be until we get a firm confirmation or denial from someone in the know. The sheer mystery of it is dazzling, enough to entice more collectors to take a swing on this book! We tracked 33 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 111%, with a high sale of $102.50 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $22.
14. SPAWN #1
Spawn has that dawg in him. This book is one of the all-time great aftermarket books and likely will remain that way for a long time. It’s a cheap, affordable key, and there is a constant buzz surrounding Spawn (like the movie supposedly coming in 2025). It comes from a beloved creator whom millions idealize, and the character is a complete badass. What more is there not to like? We recorded 24 copies sold, with a 7-day trend of 121%. A CGC 9.8 copy achieved a high sale of $184.47, and a current raw NM fair market value sits at $25.
15. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL.1 #129
Daredevil: Born Again was hurting last week. We encourage you to look up the saga that transpired, as it would take up tens of pages. The point is the series received what was dubbed a “retooling,” casting the project somewhat in doubt. One thing fans were excited about most of all was the return of Jon Bernthal as the Punisher. With Daredevil in the news, many remembered to secure a copy of the Punisher’s first appearance before it can reach maximum hype (and cost) levels if the series gets back on track. We tracked 21 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 130%, with a high sale of $4320 for a CGC 9.4 and a VG FMV of $807.
16. THE X-MEN VOL.1 #130 – NEWSSTAND
While this book has fallen behind Dazzler #1, it has steadied quite a bit. It marks the first appearance of the much-discussed Dazzler, but also Sebastian Shaw, and is the second appearance of Emma Frost and Kitty Pryde. It’s quite a bit more expensive than Dazzler #1, hence the falling behind, but it’s still an excellent key to acquire for fans of the character(s). We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 104%, with a high sale of $480 for a CGC 9.6 and a current raw NM FMV of $328.
17. THE INCREDIBLE HULK VOL.1 #340
We got another Toddfather book on our hands. For good reason, it’s a classic cover that has been homaged to death. It tends to ebb and flow with the market, and last week, it was flowing as there were good deals out there! We tracked ten copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 131%, with a high sale of $1,182.75 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $218
18. GHOST RIDER #17 – RYAN STEGMAN – REGULAR
This book contained a preview for Wolverine #36 and the debut of Hellverine. Also, it’s part two of a crossover the fanbase didn’t know they needed/wanted. While the Barends Variant is seeing more action, this is a solid consolation prize for the collectors who missed out. We tracked eight copies sold at a 7-day trend of 85%, with a high sale of $20 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $16.
19. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL.1 #252
The market has recently been flooded with this book, but the fanbase is okay with it. It’s been trending for weeks, which isn’t surprising considering this is an iconic Black Suit key. Of the four major Black Suit keys (ASM #300, MARVEL TEAM-UP #141, and SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #90, this book falls right in the sweet spot of affordability, availability, and exclusivity, making it an attractive book to acquire for Spider-Man collectors. We tracked 14 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 83%, with a high sale of $1,685 for a CGC 9.8. FMV for a raw NM copy is $187.

The vixens of the Marvel and DC lexicon have been feasting the past few weeks. This Arthur Adams 1:25 variant got Black Cat fans willing to open their wallets to secure a copy. It doesn’t just have a marvelous vixen gracing the cover but also features the first appearance of the Repossessor (Editor’s note: In a Marvel Comics solicitation on X, they call him “the repulsive Re-Po”), a demonic repo man unearthed by Goblin Queen to “reclaim her children.” The guy has Spider-Man in his sights, and the fanbase typically loves a new villain. We tracked 12 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 96%, a high sale of $50 for a raw copy, and a current raw NM FMV of $44.
