Top 50 Marvel Comics Of 1999

[ Note: in 1999 Marvel made a conscious decision to walk away from the newsstand model and a newsstand rarity estimate of 14% exists for this year for Marvel.  If you are not already in-the-know about the difference between newsstand and direct edition comics see the following: Comic Book Newsstand Editions: Understanding The Difference ]

To repeat the caveat I gave on the main 1990’s page [which has links to see other years within the decade], the list you are about to see involves no judgment or pricing data, but rather simply ranks the universe of Marvel comics published in 1999 by how many copies have passed through CGC’s doors to date — that’s it!

This exercise should tease out a very interesting list of “key” or otherwise interesting Marvel comics from 1999 but not necessarily an all-encompassing list (if very few copies were created for a given key, that restricted supply could keep the count of CGC submissions low). So without further ado, here below is a list of the top 50 most-submitted Marvel comics from 1999 (census numbers are as of year-end 2016). [Also see: top 50 D.C. comics of 1999; all key comics from 1999 ].
