#1: THE MIGHTY THOR #326 – NEWSPAPER | WONDER | 1982 | Another interesting book to check out in the top ten list! The season finale of MOON KNIGHT had many twists and turns; one of which was seeing the fantastic Layla spread her wings and soar into a new role (literally). Marvel has since confirmed her new identity as Scarlet Scarab. The interesting thing about this book is that there is no clear connection between the television portrayal of the hero and the comic book counterpart. This is the first appearance of the second Scarlet Scarab, the son of the first Scarlet Scarab who debuted in INVADERS #23. Regardless of this disconnect, this book has seen a massive increase in sales since the conclusion of the MOON KNIGHT series with raws at a $43 FMV and a high sell of $345 for a CGC 9.6.
