The Day After Wednesday for 11/12/15
Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries 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 11/11/15. They could still be at your shop.
Well……. this is the first week in a while where there are no clear hot books shooting up in value the next day. However, there are a few potential heaters. Last week also saw hot books that became scorchers.
LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMERS:
AVENGERS VS INFINITY #1 – VARIANT ERROR EDITION. This issue was misprinted and is missing pages. Retailers were instructed to destroy all copies. Replacements are coming on 11/25. Last week, the standard cover was selling close to $20, now it's moving at just a little over cover. However, the recalled Lim 1:25 variant appears to be very hard to come by with only a few currently listed. There is one up for auction at $81 with less then 4 hours to go. There are also two others with “buy it nows” for $150. Can it hold that price when the replacements come out?
HOWARD THE DUCK #1 RON LIM “GWENPOOL” Variant – This was a no brainer last week. It hit highs of $160 and has since settled to an average of $110…. Which is still pretty solid from it's next day sales of $80. I have a hard time getting a read on this character and if there's any longevity. The future of this book depends on what Marvel will do with her.
JESSICA JONES #1 Netflix Retailer Custom Edition – This sells for $15 on average, which is probably close to in store prices. However, the cover is awesome and seeing how well Alias 1 is doing and how great the show looks, this could see some interest by new fans looking for Jessica Jones books who don't associate her with Alias. However, there's not much story in there with a mere 4 pages. This was also provided during New York Comic Con.
STEAM LEAGUE 1 (Antarctic Press) – There are no U.S. ebay copies listed currently and the most recent copy sold at $7. It has a great cover and should see a decent bump when people are aware of it.
STEAM WARS BOUNTY HUNTERs (Action Lab) – There is only 1 international copy on eBay currently and I can't find any that have completed sales. This can mean two things, no one cares or it's really hard to find. The cover price is $3.99. Picking one or two up seems like a safe bet.
ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS – Alex Ross's 1:150 sketch is only selling at $80 (with free shipping). This proves that variant fatigue is absolutely here. The other variants are selling below in store prices. The hip hop variant is the only one doing decently ($8) if you can find them at cover.
BLACK BAG 1
CARNAGE (ALL NEW) 1
DC LOONEY TUNE VARIANTS – There are several good looking and fun covers in this month's theme. Unfortunately, none are hot today.
GODDAMNED – This was almost warm, this book has two covers (including one from Jock) is selling consistently at cover….. and a touch more in some cases.
HAWKEYE (ALL NEW) 1
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR GREEN LANTERN
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARKSEID WAR SHAZAM
PATHFINDER HOLLOW MOUNTAIN – all variants
POSTAL FBI DOSSIER
SLASH & BURN 1
SUPERMAN AMERICAN ALIEN 1 – Despite being cold, the variant is seeing some slight upwards movement.
ULTIMATES 1 – The 1:50 Adams Galactus cover is pretty awesome. But, it's only selling for $25
WEB WARRIORS 1 – all covers
WOLVERINE (ALL NEW) 1 – I expected these to do pretty well, but so far the variants are all selling at or below store prices. Even the Campbell variant is still available on The Cargo Hold's eBay page at $15 for the color and $20 for the black & white (though they are almost sold out). Store exclusives haven't been great investments lately.
