Last week’s top 10 comic books that are increasing in value including Darth Vader, Thor and more

Want to know which comic books are trending each week and why? COVRPRICE.COM uses live sales analytics to identify and build the most robust market price guide, highlighting the most popular comics each week. No opinions. Just data. Every week they present a newly updated list of the TOP 10 COMICS. These trends are due to rumours, fan favorite covers, story-driven content, and content-related news.


Well, if that spoiler warning didn’t put you off, then we have to wonder how many Wookies and Hammers it took to push Spider-Man 2099 off the list after a 5-week run? The answer is a Wookie (well, maybe two Wookies) and a Hammer. BOBA FETT’S BOOK helped Star Wars take the lead in the heat of the market with six books this week. But in the field of comics, Mr. Donny Cates a new potential villain (or perhaps an ally?) in his recent issue of THOR #20 called THE GOD OF HAMMERS. These two factors are only interrupted by the TIMELESS #1 Miss Minutes Ramos variant, which returns after taking the top spot last week. There are some great comics listed here to hunt for at your local comic shops. Have fun digging!


#10 STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #3 | MARVEL | BOBA FETT BOOK 2015 – EPISODE 2 surprised everyone with the introduction of Black Krrsantan, a Wookie Bounty Hunter first introduced via comics in 2015’s Darth Vader #1. This brief (and menacing appearance) continued his several key appearances and covers on fire. But fans immediately knew what his appearance could mean. If Black Krrsantan is around, then Dr. Aphra must surely exist as well. Right? Having worked closely with Black Krrsantan during her various comic book series, his appearance is a testament to her existence and possible future appearance. Her first appearance in Darth Vader #3 has a raw FMV of $153 and had a high sales of $533 for a CGC 9.8.

#9 STAR WARS #14 | MARVEL | 2015 Pretty much every cover with Black Krrsantan was hot this past week. This Mark Brooks cover features our favorite classic Wookie (Chewbacca) vs. our new favorite Wookie (BK) and has a raw FMV of $21

#8 STAR WARS #13 – CLAY MANN CONNECTION VARIANT | MARVEL | 2015 Initially, this was considered Black Krrsantan’s first cover performance. However, that was quickly corrected with the confirmation of STAR WARS: VADER DOWN #1 ZBOX variant and the MILE HIGH KATIE COOK variant taking the honors. Still, it was a little late for those who helped push this Star Wars #13 variant to the current $30 FMV.

#7 THOR #20 – SIMONE BIANCHI (1:25) | MARVEL | 2022 Breaking the heat of Black Krrsantan is the GOD OF HAMMERS, who emerged from Mjolnir on the last page of this recently released issue. What does this mean for Thor? Well, it doesn’t look good. But the $151 raw FMV looks pretty good!

#6 STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL #1 | MARVEL | 2017 This issue features Black Krrsantan’s first solo story. Due to the great interest in the character and his parentage, fans quickly grabbed this yearbook, hitting a raw FMV of $35.

#5 TIMELESS #1 – HUMBERTO RAMOS – MISS MINUTES VARIANT | MARVEL | 2021 Miss Minutes maintained her hold on the Top 10 after taking the top spot last week. This week she sold 122 copies with a raw FMV of $55 and a high sales of $240 for a CGC 9.8.

#4 STAR WARS #20 | MARVEL | 2016 This was quite an important point for Black Krrsantan. It shows him on a mission to Tatooine from Jabba the Hutt, only to cross Obi-Wan Kenobi. He gets a scar over his eye from Obi-Wan’s lightsaber. Speculation is very confident that we will most likely see this battle in the Obi-Wan Disney+ series, boosting it into a raw FMV of $27 (note: the 1:100 VARIANT has a raw FMV of $111) and growing).

#3 THOR #20 – GREG LAND – RICHES RULE | MARVEL | 2022 Back to the God of Hammers, whose first cameo appearance in this song helped sell ALL the covers. The Greg Land cover is sold for a raw FMV of $20.

#2 STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1 | MARVEL | 2015 And there you go, the official first appearance of Black Krrsantan. Wow, did he own this list? And rightly so, with a whopping 161 units sold, a raw FMV of $56 and a high sales of $350 for a CGC 9.8. We can’t wait to see more from BK!

#1 THOR #20 | MARVEL | 2022 While Black Krrsantan dominated the Top 10 list with 6 related books, the God of Hammers was easier to find due to its recent release. This helped sell 207 copies with a raw FMV of $21. Issue #20, ending on a cliffhanger, has us itching to read #21.
