11 Geiger #1 – Gary Frank – Regular
Weekly Units Sold 17
Last week, Ghost Machine launched new titles that take place in the Geiger universe: GEIGER, REDCOAT, and ROOK: EXODUS. This resurgence has led many back to the original books, seeking to pick up the significant keys that are associated with the revisited characters. For those that follow GEIGER news closely, Paramount Studios was in the process of creating a TV adaptation of the series in 2022. However, news of that production has been largely absent. The release of these new series has been the most we have gotten from the IP, but it was enough! Fans of the universe have taken to the aftermarket to show the community just how much GEIGER is loved! We tracked 17 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 19%, with a high sale of $60 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a raw NM FMV of $14.

12 The DNAgents #24
Weekly Units Sold 8
Dave Stevens covers have been heating up recently! Iconic covers like BAD PLANET #6 and PLANET COMICS #1 have seen a sudden spike of interest in the aftermarket. Dave Stevens covers have recently come into the spotlight since the release of a highly praised documentary, Dave Stevens: Drawn to Perfection. This book is a particularly difficult cover to find, especially in a higher NM grade. Demand for higher grades will also increase as his covers continue to sell on the aftermarket. We tracked eight copies sold at a 7-day trend of 46%, with a high sale of $101 for a VF raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $125.

13 The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #244
Weekly Units Sold 27
Every X-Men is getting a chance to shine in the new Disney+ series. Whilst Jubilee started as a naive and hot-headed teenager in the original series, this continuation shows viewers her immense growth. She may still be a bit rebellious, but she is also allowed to grow her character. Jubilee has also proven herself to be a cornerstone of this new iteration of the X-Men team, even earning her own solo story in the latest episode. It makes perfect sense that her first appearance is trending! We tracked 27 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 8%, with a high sale of $32 for a raw VF copy and a current raw NM FMV of $35.

14 Spawn #1 – Todd McFarlane – Regular
Weekly Units Sold 41
This comic book is one of the most desired books of a collector. It is a highly desired #1 key issue for a popular character. What’s more, it is also one of the easiest to locate and one of the most affordable. Fans of Spawn have also been anticipating a long-awaited return to the big screen for the character. Even though Spawn may not be appearing in theaters, he has kept busy with appearances in tons of video game crossovers! We tracked 41 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 90%, with a high sale of $40 for an NM raw and a current raw NM FMV of $32.

15 The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #266
Weekly Units Sold 23
Gambit is one of the X-Men’s most popular characters. Additionally, he has been the most anticipated character to hit the silver screen. Fans were excited to hear about his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, only to be disappointed by a drab cameo appearance. Fans got excited once more when the rumor of Channing Tatum bringing Gambit to the big screen in his own movie, only for that dream to fizzle away. Fans’ dreams have been reignited once more as rumors of the character appearing in Deadpool & Wolverine are running rampant. Gambit’s appearance in the new animated show has been well received. Recently, we tracked 16 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 9%, with a high sale of $685 for a CGC 9.8 and a raw NM FMV of $138.

16 Batman: The Killing Joke
Weekly Units Sold 10
THE KILLING JOKE is often heralded as one of the best Batman stories in comics. It can also be argued that this is the best Joker story in Batman mythos. Alan Moore took the level to another level by exploring a much darker and twisted storyline. Christopher Nolan was even quoted saying that THE KILLING JOKE was the influence for the film’s version of the Joker in The Dark Knight. Whatever your opinion may be, this book has suddenly been taking off in popularity once more. Even more mind-blowing is a perfect CGC 10.0 copy recently sold at Heritage Auctions for a monumental $28,800! We tracked ten copies sold at a 7-day trend of 13% with a current raw NM FMV of $82.

17 Wolverine #8
Weekly Units Sold 16
Prior to Deadpool & Wolverine, this book was a highly coveted cover. It features fantastic John Buscema artwork featuring Joe Fixit and Patch (Hulk and Wolverine’s alternate personas, respectively). However, this book is seeing new life after the debut of the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, which had fans speculating that Patch would make his first appearance in the MCU. Additionally, rumors have begun floating around that Henry Cavill was brought on to play a version of Wolverine. Could this be Patch? Who knows, but we’re hyped! We tracked 16 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 4%, with a high sale of $380 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $95.

18 Dazzler Vol.1 #1
Weekly Units Sold 12
Dazzler is back! While we still haven’t received any confirmation of Taylor Swift’s appearance in the Deadpool & Wolverine film, a potential cameo still has fans hyped. Surprisingly, in the age of movie leaks, we have yet to have any confirmation/denial about this rumor. We are only three months away from the debut of the film. Either way, we will know soon enough! We tracked 12 copies sold at a 7-day trend of 56%, with a high sale of $20 for a VF raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of $24.

19 Fantastic Four Vol.1 #49
Weekly Units Sold 14
The cat’s out of the bag! When Marvel announced the Fantastic Four film, the rumor was that Galactus would be the film’s main villain. The recent casting of Julia Garner as the Silver Surfer is as good as a confirmation that Galactus will likely appear in the film. Additionally, fans did not take this casting choice lightly. There has been a mixed reception on this decision. There are current rumors/theories that the Fantastic Four movie will take place in an alternate dimension, bringing the first family to the main timeline by the film’s end. If this is true, Marvel may reserve Norrin Radd for another encounter in the main timeline. Until more is revealed, fans are still preparing for a Silver Surfer to enter the MCU! We tracked X copies sold at a 7-day trend of X% with a high sale of $20,400 for a CG 9.6 and a current raw FINE FMV $726.

20 The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #282
Weekly Units Sold 29
Episode 3 of X-Men ‘97 finally sheds some light on Bishop and why he remained in the past. We won’t spoil it here, but the reason he has stayed behind sets him up in a role we have never seen that character in before. It will be intriguing to see where the series will take his overall story arc. Now that Bishop has returned to the spotlight and will play a key role in the series, fans are back at picking up his first appearance. We tracked 29 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 25%, with a high sale of $35 for a CGC 8.5 copy and a raw NM FMV of $15.
