10: INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #9 | WONDER | 2016 | It is finally here ! The BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER trailer debuted at SDCC, and we got our first glimpse of Riri Williams in Wakanda. With a series for Disney+ in the works, we’re beyond excited to see Riri Williams on the big screen for the first time. As Riri grabs the headlines, fans are once again ready for a second wave of fundraising. We trailed it to a sell high of $615.43 for a CGC 9.8 with a gross FMV of $136.
#9: BLACK PANTHER #1 | WONDER | 1998 | Among the appearance of characters, such as Riri Williams and Namor, fans also saw images of Okoye and Nakia. These characters make their debut in this 1998 issue of Black Panther. It looks like the future of the Black Panther mantle will be passed on to a successor. Many fan theories place Okoye, Nakia, and Shuri at the top of this speculation list. We trailed it at a sell high of $306.87 for a CGC of 9.8 and a gross FMV of $43.
#8: THE INCREDIBLE HULK #449 | WONDER | 1997 | SDCC has confirmed that the Thunderbolts are officially coming to the MCU, and that information continues to push this book forward! The interest in the Thunderbolts team was enough to land this book on our top ten list. We tracked it to a high sale of $2,160 for a CGC 9.8* (*note this was a Heritage sale, where the typical FMV for a 9.8 elsewhere is around $650) . The current gross FMV is currently $137.
#7: THE AMAZING ANT-MAN #6 | WONDER | 2016 | SDCC has confirmed many fan theories with trailers and poster reveals! One piece of news that came out of SDCC was confirmation that Cassie Lang would be featured prominently in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA. This news caused a boost in sales for his first appearance as the Stinger. Keep in mind that her first appearance, as Cassie Lang, is in MARVEL PREMIERE 47. We tracked her at a high sale of $230 for a CGC 9.8 with a gross FMV of $40.
#6: AVENGERS #267 | WONDER | 1986 | Based on Feige’s reveal of the MCU’s Phase 6, this first appearance from THE COUNCIL OF KANGS seems pivotal moving forward. Kang was set to be quite the adversary in the next two phases of the MCU, and the fan base is preparing for it. It trended at a high sell of $299 for a CGC 9.8 and a gross FMV of $50.
#5: AVENGERS #268 | WONDER | 1986 | While some collectors may want AVENGERS #267 for the key appearance, many fans want to read the story all the way through. This issue is the second part of the Kang Dynasty storyline and recently saw a slight uptick after the SDCC news on the upcoming Avengers movie! We trailed it at a high sell of $275 for a CGC 9.8 and a gross FMV of $25.
#4: THE SAVAGE SHE-HULK #1 | WONDER | 1980 | With more footage from the SHE-HULK series, this book is seeing another spike since the launch of the latest trailer. With two weeks until the first episode, it’s likely that we’ll see She-Hulk again in the top ten or in the second list. We tracked a high sell of $968.99 for a CGC 9.8 with a gross FMV of $151.
#3: PAPER GIRLS #1 | PICTURE | 2015 | The first season of Paper Girls was released on Amazon last Friday, receiving positive feedback from fans and critics. We tracked it to a high sale of $130 for a CGC 9.8, with raw copies at an FMV of $23. However, what’s interesting about sales is that many sellers are reporting that their listings have stalled. For now, it seems that the supply of this show exceeds the current demand. It’s only been a few days since the series was released, so chances are that will change.
#2: X-MEN #200 | WONDER | 1985 | Here’s another book that moved to the top of our lists due to SDCC announcements. The exclusive first look at the upcoming X-Men animated series saga showed off a new version of Magneto. In the preview, Magneto featured the same costume that was shown on this issue’s cover. We trailed it at a high sell of $189 for a CGC 9.8 and a gross FMV of $29.
#1: SECRET WARS OF MARVEL SUPERHEROES #1 | WONDER | 1984 | Moving from #8 last week to #1, Marvel recently announced the next 2 Avengers movies, the second of which was titled SECRET WARS. A dead giveaway, but the potential behind this ambitious endeavor could bring us the likes of the X-Men and sooner than expected. We followed it at a sell high of $1050 for a CGC 9.8 and trending raw at a FMV of $66.
