The Day After Wednesday for 10/29/15
Want to know what yesterday’s books are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day After” list that we hope will help! This isn’t a reflection on the quality, collectability or long term potential of recently released books. This is based on today’s market price for books that came out yesterday, Wednesday 10/28/15. This is a pretty light week, but there are some indie heaters to pay attention to. They could still be at your shop.
HENCHGIRL #1 (Scout Comics, $3.99 cover price) – This book was completely off my radar until I did this list. If your shop has it, it’s steadily selling for over $15.
SELF STORAGE #1 (451) – Selling for $15 on average. Some sales are even around $20. These indie books, and 451 specifically, are killing it lately. However, Sunflower has already been dropping in price. Be wary.
WES CRAVEN COMING OF RAGE #1 BLOODY WHITE VARIANT (Limited to 100) – There were a couple lucky pre-sales at $24.99. But this book currently has 4 auction listings moving past $60 with days left to go. Definitely pick this up if your store has one. Though, I wouldn’t hold on to it for very long. (the other covers are all doing decently too)
BONUS – LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMERS (See Keith’s Variant Heat Check Article)
BACK TO THE FUTURE #1 – The standard Cover A is good and selling above cover ($8). However, the Diamond Retailer UK Variant & the VA Comic Con are the covers to find and hold. And speaking of Back to the Future…. Back to the Future #1 from Harvey Comics (1991) is seeing some nice sales ($25 for NM) thanks to this new release.
WELCOME TO SHOWSIDE #1 (Z2) – Granted, this book isn’t doing anything crazy right now. It’s only selling at cover price and the variants are selling for standard in-store prices. HOWEVER, this is exactly the type of book that goes crazy two weeks later. The lack of eBay listings also tell me that it may be hard to find. My favorite cover is the Fried Pie variant. Watch this one….. seriously. Oh, did I mention that this was optioned?
ANGELA QUEEN OF HEL #1 1:25 Variant
BLACK MAGICK #1 – All covers
HOWLING COMMANDOS OF SHIELD #1 – All covers
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR BATMAN #1 – No variant for this? Bummer.
PLANTS VS ZOMBIES GARDEN WARFARE #1
UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #1 – All Covers (though I like the 1:25, which is selling for $10)
WEBWITCH #1 – I guess not all Indie’s take off the day after release.
WHAT IF INFINITY DARK REIGN #1 – Selling below cover.
