RUNNERS UP

#11: THE NEW MUTANTS #98 – Regular | MARVEL | 1991
We’re nearly there, July 26th, the day Deadpool and Wolverine finally arrives. The fanbase has been receiving constant teases and promotions for the upcoming, raising the hype level even further, which naturally entices collectors to take a gander at available copies of the first appearance of Deadpool on the aftermarket. We tracked 22 copies sold, at a 7-day growth trend of 8%, with a high sale of $1,400 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $420.

#12: X-MEN #185 | MARVEL | 2006
Bear witness to our dear Cajun X-Man’s return as a Horseman for Apocalypse! Gambit returns to take on the moniker, much like he may be doing after the conclusion of X-Men 97’. Fans are still going through the season, providing fresh eyes on Gambit’s heroic sacrifice and apparent return. That’s led to steady aftermarket sales. We tracked 21 copies sold, at a 7-day growth trend of 65%, with a high sale of $24 for an NM raw copy and a current NM raw FMV of $21.

#13: THE AUTHORITY #1 | DC | 1999
Jenny Sparks of the Authority is getting a revival limited series from DC. Many know that the Authority is on the DCU slate, thanks to the information provided by James Gunn. DC may be taking one out of the Marvel handbook and softening up audiences with a killer title before the character debuts on the big screen. We may get more titles for each member of the Authority down the line, but the community will have to wait and see. We tracked 12 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 103%, with a high sale of $265 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $39.

#14: X-MEN #24 | MARVEL | 1993
For those that followed X-Men ’97’, they had to bear witness to the utter devastation Rogue experienced after the death of Gambit. She would proceed on a bit of a rampage herself, with numerous repercussions because of it; however, many fans like remembering the good times when Rogue and Gambit were the ideal X-Men couple in the cartoon (don’t worry comic book fans, they are still the perfect couple in the comics). We tracked 20 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 53%, with a high sale of $237 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $17.

#15: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #50 – GREG CAPULLO – VIRGIN (1:100) | MARVEL | 2024
When most fans see Capullo’s name, they assume they’re looking at a DC title. This book is a healthy warmup for Capullo before he makes his major Marvel return on a Wolverine title later this year. He has a massive fanbase, and so does Spider-Man. Pair the two together, and you have an aftermarket darling. We tracked 12 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 26%, with a high sale of $190 for an NM raw copy and a current NM raw FMV of $96.

#16: X-MEN #53 | MARVEL | 1996
Oh yes, it appears X-Men 97’ is going there! By that, we mean introducing Onslaught and a corresponding storyline, which caused collectors to seek out his first appearance. Onslaught has quite a complicated history, but if the creators can get their hands around that, the fanbase may be in for a massive treat! We tracked 29 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 19%, with a high sale of $182 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $15.

#17: WOLVERINE #75 | MARVEL | 1993
After Magneto yanked all the Adamantium from Wolverine’s body, many wondered how he would maintain his ferocity without his patented claws. Well, this book aimed to answer that, introducing his admittedly less intimidating bone claws. Still, those calcium sticks are a major springboard point for numerous storylines. With X-Men ’97 shadowing portions of the comics, the fanbase anticipates we may see more of the same. We tracked 34 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 14%, with a high sale of $102 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $10.

#18: X-MEN ‘97 #1 – Todd Nauck | MARVEL | 2024
X-Men 97’ hit a major portion of the fanbase right in the feels, bringing back the series and improving upon it. Naturally, fans opted to secure a copy of the series adaptation, grabbing them from online sources if the LCS dried up. It won’t secure your retirement or anything, but hot dang, it’s a sweet book! We tracked 38 copies sold at a 7-day growth trend of 3%, with a high sale of $150 for a CGC 9.8 and a current NM raw FMV of $16.

#19: DOOM #1 – Maria Wolf (1:25) | MARVEL | 2024
DOOM! Seriously, this one shot from Marvel was what the fanbase ordered. Dr. Doom is one of the most complex villains ever produced. He’s been investigated to death, yet there is still SO much Marvel can do with him. Whether it was their way of testing the waters or prepping audiences for his eventual appearance on the big screen, they did a good job. Aftermarket sales have been brisk since it dropped, and this 1:25 variant from Maria Wolf has been at the top of the charts! We tracked 29 copies sold, at a 7-day growth trend of 11%, with a high sale of $40 for an NM raw copy and a current NM raw FMV of $30.

#20: DOOM #1 – SKAN SRISUWAN – KRS / COMIC CORNER – SECRET WARS #10 HOMAGE (LIMITED 300) | MARVEL | 2024
Most see this book and see the Secret Wars #10 homage, but there is also one on the first page for rapper MF Doom (RIP). His iconic look was ripped straight from books like this, making it a double whammy for Doom fans. His return in this one-shot has been welcomed with open arms. Some were caught a bit off guard and have been attempting to catch up by scouring the aftermarket! We tracked 11 copies sold, at a 7-day growth trend of 5%, with a high sale of $100 for an NM raw copy and a current NM raw FMV of $92.
