Last Week’s Top 10 Comics Rising In Value Include Darth Vader, Thor, And More
Want to know which comics are trending each week and why? COVRPRICE.COM uses live sales analytics to identify and compile the most robust market price guide, highlighting the hottest comics each week. No opinion. Just data. Every week they feature a newly updated TOP 10 COMICS list. These trends are driven by rumors, fan-favorite covers, story-based content, and content-related news.
NOTE: THIS WEEK’S LIST CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM DISNEY+’S BOBA FETT BOOK – EPISODE 2 and the recent Marvel comic book release of THOR #20.
Well, if that spoiler warning didn’t scare you, we have to ask how many Wookies and Hammers did it take to remove Spider-Man 2099 from the list after its 5 weeks of running? The answer is a Wookie (well, maybe two Wookies) and a Hammer. THE BOBA FETT BOOK helped Star Wars take the market lead with six books this week. However, in terms of the comics, Mr. Donny Cates introduced a potential new villain (or perhaps an ally?) in his recent issue of THOR #20 titled THE GOD OF HAMMERS. Those two factors are only interrupted by the TIMELESS #1 variant Miss Minutes Ramos, who returns after taking the top spot last week. There are some great comics listed here to look for in your local comic book stores. Happy digging!
#10 STAR WARS: DARK VADER #3 | WONDER | BOBA FETT’S BOOK 2015 – EPISODE 2 surprised everyone by introducing Black Krrsantan, a Wookie Bounty Hunter first introduced via comics in 2015’s Darth Vader #1. This brief (and menacing) appearance put his various appearances and key covers on absolute fire. However, fans immediately knew what her looks could mean. If Black Krrsantan is there, then surely Doctor Aphra must exist too. To the right? Having worked closely with Black Krrsantan throughout his various comic series, his appearance is testament to his existence and possible future appearance. His first appearance in Darth Vader #3 has a gross FMV of $153 and a high sale of $533 for a CGC 9.8.
#9 STAR WARS #14 | WONDER | 2015 Almost all the covers with Black Krrsantan were hot last week. This cover by Mark Brooks features our favorite classic Wookie (Chewbacca) against our new favorite Wookie (BK) and has a gross FMV of $21
#8 STAR WARS #13 – CLAY MANN CONNECTION VARIANT | WONDER | 2015 Initially, this was considered Black Krrsantan’s first cover appearance. However, this was quickly rectified with the confirmation of the ZBOX STAR WARS: VADER DOWN #1 variant and the MILE HIGH KATIE COOK variant holding the honor. Still, it was a bit late for those who helped bring this Star Wars #13 variant to its current FMV of $30.
#7 THOR #20 – SIMONE BIANCHI (1:25) | WONDER | 2022 Breaking the Heat of Black Krrsantan is the GOD OF HAMMERS, who emerged from Mjolnir on the last page of this newly published issue. What does this mean for Thor? Well, that doesn’t look good. But its gross FMV of $151 looks pretty good!
#6 STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL #1 | WONDER | 2017 This issue features Black Krrsantan’s first solo story. Due to the high interest in the character and his origins, fans were quick to grab this annual, helping him reach a gross FMV of $35.
#5 TIMELESS #1 – HUMBERTO RAMOS – MISS MINUTES VARIANT | WONDER | Miss Minutes 2021 retained her hold on the Top 10 after taking the top spot last week. This week it sold 122 copies with a gross FMV of $55 and a high sale of $240 for a CGC 9.8.
#4 STAR WARS #20 | WONDER | 2016 It was a rather key issue for Black Krrsantan. He presents him on a mission on Tatooine from Jabba the Hutt, to cross paths with Obi-Wan Kenobi. This is how he gets a scar over his eye, via Obi-Wan’s lightsaber. Speculation is very confident that we will most likely see this battle in the Obi-Wan Disney+ series, boosting it in a gross FMV of $27 (note: the 1:100 VARIANT has a gross FMV of $111 and growing).
#3 THOR #20 – GREG LAND – REIGN OF THE VILLAINS | WONDER | 2022 Back to the God of Hammers, whose first appearance in this issue helped ALL the covers sell. Greg Land’s cover sells for a gross FMV of $20.
#2 STAR WARS: DARK VADER #1 | WONDER | 2015 Here it is, the first official appearance of Black Krrsantan. Wow, did he own that list? And rightly so, with 161 copies sold, a gross FMV of $56, and a high sale of $350 for a CGC 9.8. We can’t wait to see more BK!
#1 THOR #20 | WONDER | 2022 While Black Krrsantan topped the top 10 list with 6 related books, God of Hammers was easier to find due to its recent release. This allowed 207 copies to sell with a gross FMV of $21. Ending on a cliff, issue 20 makes us want to read issue 21.
