The shape-shifting X-Men villain takes center stage in this recent release of X-MEN: BLUE ORIGINS. The debut issue features Mystique casting multiple shadows of her previous assumed identities. The virgin cover is not only a magnificent piece of art by E.M. Gist, but it is also a retailer incentive. A 1:50 virgin variant is difficult to find, making this issue much more coveted. We tracked nine copies sold at a 7-day trend of 108%, with a high sale of $130 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $102.

As part of the show’s 60th anniversary, David Tennant and Catherine Tate returned to the series for a Doctor Who 3-episode special. The first special debuted last week, and the second episode was released a few days ago. The previous anniversary special (50th) was extremely well-received by most fans, and it looks like the 60th is following that same track record. This special has shone a light on the premiere issue of the series. In addition to the specials, Magic: The Gathering, the popular card game, will feature the debut of the Fourteenth Doctor. Magic will release the debut on December 11th as part of a drop called Secret Lair x Doctor Who: Regeneration. Needless to say, Doctor Who has a lot going for it now, and it makes sense that it is selling as well as it is! We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 121%, with a high sale of $97.43 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $20.

13 GREEN ARROW #6 – HOMARE (1:25)
Black Canary is an extremely popular character when it comes to collecting cover art. Several artists have made their mark by bringing this character to life. Homare joins the ranks with a beautiful Black Canary illustration. This issue is even more coveted because it is a retailer incentive, making it more difficult to find. We tracked 13 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 93%, with a high sale of $40 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $29.

It is a new era in the age of comic books as it seems every hero is getting their own younger “sidekick.” Yuna Yang debuted in CAPTAIN MARVEL #1, introduced as Carol Danvers’s only chance to defeat a new enemy, The Omen. Yuna Yang currently possesses the Nega-Bands and is in a cosmically intertwined story with Captain Marvel. When Yang uses the bracelets, she switches places with Captain Marvel. Sound familiar? There may be more significance to Yang than we think. In the meantime, this book is her first cover appearance, and it is picking up heat as fans learn more about this new hero! We tracked 11 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 175%, with a high sale of $16 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $12.

At the tail end of the Silver Age is a piece of Spider-Man history. This cover depicts an epic battle between Spider-Man and his deadly villain, The Vulture. While this book is a hot collector’s item due to its scarcity, it also is a fantastic piece of history. It boasts not one but two comic book titans in its credits. Stan Lee is the featured writer, and John Romita Sr. is the artist. While it is fun to chase after the keys and find the FOMO of the week, books like this truly make the hunt thrilling. We tracked 13 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 273%, with a high sale of $489 for a CGC 9.4 and a current raw NM FMV of $315.

Silver-age comic books will always be a hot collector item. As more collectors hunt down books and send them to CGC, the chance of finding raw Silver-Age comics in the wild reduces. The holiday season is upon us, and hard-to-find books are being scooped up for gifts or for personal collections. This book is a beautiful classic, with legends like Jack Kirby and Stan Lee taking the helm. We tracked 11 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 196%, with a high sale of $45 for an NM+ raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $28.

Venom is the most anticipated villain for Tom Holland’s next debut as Spider-Man. Disney teased fans of the symbiote’s existence in the MCU during No Way Home two years ago. As of now, there has been no new info on whether the next Spider-Man solo movie will be greenlit. As most fans know, the MCU is in a transition phase after what fans have called a lackluster phase 5. 2024 will only see the debut of Deadpool 3 and no other Marvel movies. When will Spider-Man return for his own film? The answer to that question remains unknown. We tracked 24 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 110%, with a high sale of $120 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $24.

Deadpool is the definitive rated-R character at Marvel (unless we’re getting another rated-R Wolverine!). When Igor and Co. bought the rights for Deadpool to bring him under the Disney umbrella, many fans had reservations about the character’s direction. However, recent teases and leaks have proved that Deadpool will remain the wise-crackin’, murdering assassin we know and love. Ryan Reynolds himself has taken a massive role in the film’s direction, and we trust in Wade Wilson to write his own movie. As we learn more about the film, expect to see more of this book in our top lists! We tracked 20 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 102%, with a high sale of $1,499.99 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $356.

By now, most have heard of the rumor that Channing Tatum will play the role of Gambit in the upcoming Deadpool 3 film. However, most still believe that this is Gambit’s first appearance. In fact, that title goes to X-MEN ANNUAL #14, which showcases Gambit in 15 panels. It doesn’t help that CGC recognizes the annual issue as a cameo appearance, not a full one. Regardless of what defines a full appearance, this issue still sports the best cover, and sales show the fan’s preference for this annual issue! Recently, we tracked 16 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 126%, with a high sale of $774.99 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $181.

Frankie Raye returns to the top lists once more! A couple of weeks ago, a rumor broke that the MCU will feature a female herald to Galactus in the upcoming Fantastic Four film. Frankie Raye became the subject of attention as the go-to female herald. Although this is not her first appearance, see FANTASTIC FOUR #164. This issue is her first debut with the moniker “Nova.”

Since Nova has been a rumored name for future MCU projects, fans quickly connected the two rumors. Although this still needs to be confirmed, it is still fueling this issue’s sales. We tracked 16 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 114%, a high sale of $398 for a CGC 9.8 copy, and a current raw NM FMV of $34.
