The Day After Wednesday for 11/5/15
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 11/4/15. They could still be at your shop.
AVENGERS VS INFINITY #1 – ERROR edition. This issue was misprinted and is missing pages. Retailers were instructed to destroy all copies. Replacements are coming on 11/25. If you see any, grab them. These are selling for $15 and rising. While there are a bunch of copies floating around, misprint & error editions tend to have long term value and always be in demand. What’s not clear is if the Ron Lim Variant was also recalled. I assume so. It might be a good idea to pick one up if it’s cheap enough.
HOWARD THE DUCK #1 RON LIM “GWENPOOL” Variant – This was a no brainer. This variant was doing stupid numbers days before release and has pretty much held those prices. It’s really impossible to say what potential lies in this book. Nobody expected the Spider-Verse SPIDER-GWEN variant to do what it did. Right now, the market is showing a slight decrease in demand though. If you have a copy, watch this closely. Even the other covers are doing really well. All are selling consistently and over cover.
KLAUS #1 1:100 Variant – This book is TOUGH to find. As of right now, there’s only 1 on eBay (and one other with the wrong cover) and only a few previous sales. It’s currently sitting at about $80. However, if you got in early and at a low price, there’s a lot of potential (short term) in this book. Just don’t hold them for too long. This is a mini-series and the likelihood of this getting optioned is very slight.
BONUS – LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMERS
HENCHGIRL & SELF STORAGE – Both of these titles were HOT last week and were both seeing solid sales. However, as speculation goes, these have already dropped in value. If flipping is your thing, then hopefully you did so already. If you didn’t, hold on to them. These titles are still hard to come by and could always hold long term potential.
DEADPOOL 1 ANKA “MR. NOVEMBER” 1:100 Variant – This variant is selling for about $70. Why is this warm? Due to it being Deadpool, a 1:100 variant AND a new #1, I assume that most stores have this way overpriced. AND the crazy part is that they’ll actually sell at those prices. However, if you see them for around $40 or less…… you could see a nice return.
BONUS DEADPOOL “Keep on your Radar” VARIANT: DEADPOOL 1 ROB LIEFELD Variant – This is an exclusive for the Amazing Oklahoma Comic Con at the end of the month. The color is limited to 3000 and the B&W is limited to 1500. While these aren’t rare, people lose their minds when Liefeld draws Deadpool. Make that a limited con variant AND a #1 issue……. this book will be a beast.
NIOBE SHE IS LIFE #1 – This was probably the most discussed book of the week. There was also a lot of debate over the speculation and hype for it. While there was a lot of hype, it also came from a place of actual excitement and love for this character. The standard and variants are all doing well. It’s just not the earth shattering “send your kids to college” profits that people were expecting. The standard cover is selling above cover price and the variants are selling at “in-store prices”, which is about $20. There’s still traction and interest in this book. However, if you have copies, hold them. DON’T throw them on e-bay. The market place is already pretty full and will just lead to “the flood effect”. The very limited Hoknes variants are mailing out now, so it’s yet to be seen what that will do.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #3 DEL OTTO 1:25 Variant – Selling JUST above cover, which is really surprising. This is a really cool cover too. Variant fatigue is definitely setting in.
CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS III #1
CAGE HERO #1
CITIZEN JACK #1
EXODUS LIFE AFTER #1
EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #1 CAMPBELL 1:25 Variant – These were pretty hot before release, but today, prices are only seeing $20 sales. Again, variant fatigue is setting in. There have been too many covers by the same artist, Campbell included. Stores immediately overprice these too. I LOVE his covers and pick these up for the PC, but lately these are poor investments.
JAMES BOND #1
JOE GOLEM OCCULT DETECTIVE #1
JOHNNY RED #1
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR FLASH #1 – These Darkseid War covers are pretty cool.
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR SUPERMAN #1
MAX RIDE #1 ULTIMATE FLIGHT
SPIDER-GWEN #0 – Reprint of Edge of Spider-Verse 2
UNCANNY X-MEN #600 – All covers. Even the Hughes Variant is selling just above cover.
