Top 50 Marvel Comics Of 2006

[ Note: in the prior year a newsstand rarity estimate of 2% exists 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 2000’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 2006 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 2006 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 2006 (census numbers are as of year-end 2016). [Also see: top 50 D.C. comics of 2006; all key comics from 2006 ].
