Top Ten Runners-Up for Week of 3/1/24

As promised, the Top 10 Runners-up list. The second half of the Top 20.

H.E.R.B.I.E is the first family’s robot assistance. He was first introduced in this comic book and played a few minor roles in the Fantastic Four’s adventures. Marvel recently announced the casting list for the Fantastic Four with a family portrait. In the family portrait, a robotic friend is featured handing Thing a cup of coffee. Marvel has always enjoyed their easter eggs, and it is a tad suspicious that they would include H.E.R.B.I.E. without insinuating that he may appear in the film. Fans are speculating on his appearance and quickly picking up this affordable key. We tracked 33 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 160%, with a high sale of $220 for a CGC 9.6 copy and a current raw NM FMV of $33.

#12 DAZZLER #1 MARVEL | 1981
We’re sorry to disappoint if you thought there was new information on this rumor. There are still no official confirmations or denials about the rumor that Taylor Swift will cameo as Dazzler in Deadpool 3. Nevertheless, Swift’s massive following has continued to hold out hope to see the superstar as a member of the X-Men. Sales continue to trend as we wait for any information on the hottest rumor coming out of Deadpool 3. We tracked 25 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 130%, with a high sale of $189 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a current raw NM FMV of $26.

Tony Stark is a pillar of the MCU. Robert Downey Jr. brought a gravitas to the character, and Iron Man became a household superhero name. If there ever were a moment in the MCU that would debut his son, that moment would be historical. Fans are preparing for the smallest chance that James Stark would appear in the main MCU or the popular What-If series. Either way, the demand from the aftermarket has yet to dry up. We tracked 34 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 81%, with a high sale of $20 for an NM raw and a current raw NM FMV of $9.

The Hellverine returns! It returns onto our lists as fans gear up for a limited series revolving around the character. The first appearance of the Hellverine turned a few heads when it first debuted. However, it has been increasing in popularity every day. This character’s positive reception is likely why Marvel has decided to have him star in a limited series. We tracked 24 copies sold, a 7-day trend of 115%, a high sale of $185 for a CGC 9.8, and a current NM FMV of $63.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1 was extremely popular when it debuted. It was extremely likely that the 2nd Print would move just as fast. It almost immediately went to the aftermarket, and prices soared. A 3rd print is on the way for next week, and presales for the virgin retailer incentive are already selling quickly! We tracked 43 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 105%, with a high sale of $60 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $15.

#16 SPAWN #1 IMAGE | 1992
SPAWN #1 is a comic that consistently finds its way back to our top lists. The book has been hitting our lists in recent months because of the progress made on the Spawn movie. McFarlane is currently celebrating 30 years of toy design with his company, McFarlane Toys. During an interview with IGN FanFest, McFarlane shared that he is fully confident in the return of Al Simmons as Spawn on the big screen. In fact, he stated that he and Jason Blum are already planning out sequels. We recorded 36 copies sold, with a 7-day trend of 73% at a high sale of $175 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $35. This book simply will not stop.

While we saw the debut of the new Ultimate Universe Peter Parker in #1, this is the first full in-story appearance of Earth-6160 Spider-Man. As a bonus, you also get the first appearance of the Ultimate Universe Shocker! It is interesting to note that, while this is the retailer incentive cover, Cover A has been selling for more value than this book. It is the same trend as the first issue, which also has cover A as the best-selling cover. We tracked 30 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 82%, with a high sale of $27.50 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $21.

#18 SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 MARVEL | 1992
This book has been cycling through our top lists for the past year, with many thanks to Across the Spider-Verse for bringing Miguel O’Hara to the spotlight. Since that movie, this book has been a top seller. It is an easy-to-find book and one of the more affordable key Spider-Man books. It is a great pick-up to read before we start getting any promos for Beyond the Spider-Verse. We tracked 14 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 174%, with a high sale of $40 for a CGC 9.4 copy and a raw NM FMV of $11.

#19 X-MEN #25 MARVEL | 1993
There’s a lot to look forward to with the X-Men lately. We hear whispers of their future appearance in the MCU. We know a certain adamantium claw-wielding mutant is set to return in Deadpool 3. We also saw the new X-Men ’97 trailer debut, featuring Magneto’s return as the school’s head. The elements are there to recreate the infamous scene of Magneto ripping out the adamantium from Wolverine’s skeleton. While that seems a tad bit more violent than what we have seen in the MCU, Deadpool 3 will test the waters for the demand of a Rated-R MCU market. Its success could lead to darker, more adult-oriented storylines that would welcome a brutal scene like this one. We tracked 15 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 150%, with a high sale of $108 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $17.

We got the first trailer for X-Men ‘97 a couple of weeks ago, and fans were ecstatic! As we wait for the anticipated debut of the series next month, we will revisit old favorites. Morph was a mutant that hit popularity during his first appearance in the show. Since then, he has played significant roles in future X-Men comic storylines. While we relive the nostalgia, we might as well pick up a copy of his first appearance! Last week, we tracked 25 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 87%, a high sale of $172 for a CGC 9.8, and a raw NM FMV of $9.
