10 Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars Vol.1 #8 – Direct
This book is a must-have key for fans of Spider-Man and Venom. It features the origin of the black suit and saw a nice spike with the recent release of the PS5 game Spider-Man 2. To a lesser degree, this book also features the second appearance of Julia Carpenter, the second Spider-Woman, AND the second Madame Web. In the upcoming Madame Web, Julia Carpenter will be played by Sydney Sweeney, bringing a significant spotlight on the character. We tracked 26 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 88%, with a high sale of $610 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw VF FMV of $133.

9 The Avengers Vol.1 #181
Paul Rudd did such a fantastic job bringing Scott Lang to life. This book saw the debut of Lang, who would later go on to become Ant-Man. Thanks to Paul Rudd, Ant-Man is now a household name. The character was all over the internet last week, as the most recent Marvel film (The Marvels) was released, and fans are ready to compare everything Marvel has released in this phase. And Rudd gave an interview detailing his diet to embody the character. Despite years of comic fans ignoring this key, it’s sudden trend this week of those same fans opting to secure a copy of the first appearance of Scott Lang. We tracked ten copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 242%, with a high sale of $100 for a raw copy and a current raw VF FMV of $21.

8 Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars Vol.1 #1
There is a lot at stake for Marvel, as rumors have been swirling for months now that Disney and the MCU might abandon the Kang storyline. That leaves half a slate empty and adds tremendous pressure for the other half of the slate, featuring SECRET WARS. We still don’t know which Secret Wars run Marvel will adapt, but this series is a natural focal point. It’s a pivotal run with a TON of material to pull from. If Marvel wants to brush themselves off and move forward, adapting this storyline may be the way to go. We tracked 16 copies sold with a 7-day trend of 151% and a high sale of $130 for a raw copy with a VF FMV of $22.

7 The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #239 – Direct
Disney +’s X-Men 97′ is right around the corner. However, all those fans excited about it may have had the ‘co-main’ villain spoiled. We got word a few months back that Mr. Sinister would be the main villain of the series, with this book marking his second appearance and first cover. He shares the cover with Madelyne Pryor, the Goblin Queen. Recently, fans spotted a Funko of the character that will be released soon to coincide with the release of X-Men 97′. Fans zeroed in on this book, sporting both on the cover! We tracked 13 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 210%, with a high sale of $185 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a current raw FN FMV of $10.

6 Godzilla Vol.1 #1 – Regular
As the kids say, Godzilla is FEASTING! Godzilla Minus One is crushing the box office and is quickly becoming one of, if not the highest-rated pieces of Godzilla media ever. Monarch debuted on Apple TV in mid-November, and there were rumors we would see a new trailer for Godzilla/Kong soon. As of this writing, we did get that trailer, and the fandom is beyond excited. Fans of the character are obssessing over Godzilla currently, and many are opting to secure a copy of this book, the first piece of Godzilla media aimed at US audiences! We tracked 18 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 152%, with a high sale of $485 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw VF FMV of $66.

5 Nth Man The Ultimate Ninja #11
Last week, the female Silver Surfer rumors caught fire and got out of control! Everything remotely in orbit was gobbled up by collectors, including this book. In it, a reality-altering character turns a woman into his herald. This new herald resembles the Silver Surfer despite not having the Power Cosmic or being a herald of Galactus. Still, this cover caught the eye of numerous collectors who opted to secure a copy. We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 171%, with a high sale of $11 for a raw copy and a current raw FN FMV of $3.

4 Hercules: Twilight Of A God #1
The market has been active the past few weeks when rumors began to hit social media regarding a female Silver Surfer. While the rumors point more toward Frankie Raye (Nova) as a Herald of Galactus, some fans pointed at this book as the book to chase. It features the first appearance of Juno, a daughter of Hercules from Earth-829. She would later become a Herald in issue #4, where Galactus bestows upon her the name of Silver Surfer. The aftermarket has fluctuated between this book and issue #4. It appears this book has won out, despite it being speculation that doesn’t hold up when you take a hard look at it. Regardless, fans collect what they want, and last week, it was this book. We tracked 16 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 187%, with a high sale of $50 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $23.

3 Spider-Man 2099 Vol.1 #1
This book has cemented itself as a fantastic wall book that won’t break the bank. It’s affordable and attainable and a debated first appearance battle with ASM #365. It checks the boxes for many collectors and quickly goes the route of Spawn #1, as it appears on our lists every few weeks regardless of what’s happening in the market. We tracked 35 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 101%, with a high sale of $160 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $23.

2 Miles Morales: Spider-Man #12 – David Baldeon (1:25)
Miles is at a pivotal point, with the powder keg ready to blow! This book marks the last issue before the GANG WAR event, and David Baldeon crushed it with this 1:25 variant. The negative space style has been done to death lately, but this book is *Chef’s Kiss* remarkable. It quickly became THE variant to get for this book and one of the most sought-after covers of the last few months. Cheaper copies are going swiftly online, and the premium is rising! We tracked 25 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 179%, with a high sale of $43 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $41.

1 Spawn #1
As mentioned in our Spider-Man 2099 entry, Spawn is the king of the aftermarket. Even when there isn’t a media storm surrounding the character, Spawn sells books. Despite it being a quiet period for the character after having the spotlight shining bright in previous months, he tops the list. This book is a cheap and plentiful key that trades hands often, gradually building its FMV and aftermarket asking price! We recorded 47 copies sold, with a 7-day trend of 98%. A CGC 9.8 copy achieved a high sale of $170, and a current raw NM fair market value sits at $32.
