Below are the top 10 newsstand sales for the week.

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol 2, #1

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $2,899

Claiming top spot this week is a sale of a CGC 9.6 Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol 2, #1. This is the book’s 10th entry after its 9th just 2 weeks ago.

This particular sale of $2,899 is probably the highest amount since this book first enter the charts. Previously, most of the sales were for Vf-NM raws that fetched between $60-$150.

Regular CGC 9.6 of this book is selling for $300. This implies a newsstand premium of almost 10x for this sale!

Jedi Mace Windu One Shot

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $325

The first appearance of Asajj Ventres continues to heat up on the charts with its 4th entry. This is just after making its 3rd entry 2 weeks ago.

This week’s sale is for VFNM copy. Its selling prices of $325 is in line with Oct’s VFNM sale of $300.

Regular editions of this book has seen some cooling off, with prices around the $100-$120 mark. This means a newsstand premium of around 200% for this sale.

New Avengers #7

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $300

New Avengers #7 contains the first appearance of Illuminati, which has been rumored to appear in the MCU. This sale marks the 3rd time the book has appeared in the charts, after an absence of 4 months since July 5th week.

The sale is for a CGC 9.6 and is the highest newsstand sale for this book. The previous sale for a raw VFNM that went for $150.

In comparison to direct edition 9.6, the premium is around 650% as the latter is only selling for $40.

Star Wars Insider #140

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $203

You know a character is hot when even her magazine covers are being bought up at expensive prices. This weeks marks the 2nd time this magazine has appeared on the charts, after debuting 2 weeks ago.

This sale of $203 is about 25% higher than the previous sale, which indicates a rising interest.

The direct edition is seeing sales of $100 so there might be a newsstand premium of 100%.

X-Force #116

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $199

X-Force #116 makes its 2nd chart this week with a CGC 9.8 sale of $199, after debuting last week. This issue contains quite a number of first appearances but Doop has to be the most popular.

This sale is also its highest newsstand sale as this is the first 9.8 copy that appeared on the charts. However, relative to the direct edition 9.8, which are selling for $150, the premium is a modest 30%. This implies that the newsstand might be undervalued.

Ultimate Fallout #4

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $2,050

If you need proof that Miles Morales is hot, look no further that the fact that he has claimed #1 and #2 spot this week. This is the book’s 8th entry and is for a Vf copy only!

The previous 7th entry was also for a VF copy but it went for only $1,280. Just after 2 weeks, the price has went up by almost 80%. This sale is coming close to the CGC 8.0 that sold for $2,700.

A VF raw copy for the direct edition is selling for $250. That means a newsstand premium of 700%!.

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 2, #36

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $310

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 2, #36 hits its highest record with this CGC 9. 8 sale of $310. The previous sale was for a CGC 9.6, which went for $158.

This sale marks the book’s third entry. With its all black cover, getting a 9.8 newsstand edition is a lot harder than you think. I wouldn’t be surprised if this 9.8 book continues to rise.

In terms of newsstand premium, it is about 100% as regular 9.8s are selling for $150.

Knights of the Old Republic #42

Copies sold: 2
Average Sales: $299 and $150

Darth Revan put on this famous mask on this issue, resulting in a debate on whether should this issue be consider his full first. Anyway, this book has appeared twice on the charts, with the first just 2 weeks ago. Star Wars fever?

The previous sale of $230 was for a NM copy. This week, the sale was for a VF copy but it sold at an even higher price of $299.

In terms of newsstand premium, it is around 200%.

Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1

Copies sold: 1
Average Sales: $203

The only new entry this weeks comes from Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1. If you have not read this, I suggest you do as it pits 616’s Deadpool against Dreadpool who murdered the entire Marvel universe 12101. Unfortunately, there is no first appearance in this book so the value is questionable.

In comparison, direct editions 9.8 are selling for $50. This means there is a newsstand premium of around 300% for this sale!

Star Wars Tales #23

Copies sold: 2
Average Sales: $150 and $50

The final spot this week is Star Wars Tales #23, which is making its 4th chart entry. Its previous entry was 3 months ago on the 1st week of September.

This week saw 2 copies being sold. One is a raw FVFfor $50 while the other is raw VFNM for $150. These sales represents almost a 100% jump in prices since the last chart entry.

Relative to direct editions which are selling for $80 in VFNM condition, there is almost a 100% newsstand premium being paid.

  1. The Deadpool vs Deadpool has to be a bogus sale. I don’t even have to look at any of the details. I know because I have the same newsstand in the same grade listed on eBay and I haven’t even received an offer. It was listed at $40 when the bogus one sold. Someone trying to drive up the price on it no doubt. I raised the price just today just in case.
