#5: MOON KNIGHT #1 | WONDER | 1980 | This highly anticipated Moon Knight Disney+ series is finally here with an episode and Episode 2 just hours away.

#3: INCREDIBLE SPIDER-MAN #93 – ARTHUR ADAMS | WONDER | 2022 | While not entirely celebrated on this new path for Ben Reily, fans were still in for that first Chasm appearance, causing all the trouble trending with a high sale of $20 for a raw copy. This price has already fallen to a FMV of $6.
