The Day After Wednesday for 4/14/16
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 on Wednesday 4/13/16. They could still be at your shop.
GWENPOOL 1 STACEY LEE 1:50 VARIANT – Say what you like about the character, but she’s moving books! All of the variants are doing decently, however the clear winner is definitely Stacy Lee’s 1:50. I’m not a huge fan of this cover (nor the other ones), but it’s doing really well and selling at $80 (plus shipping). I would normally expect this to come down by the weekend, but I kind of think it’ll have some legs for a while.
MOON KNIGHT 1 1:25 MARCO RUDY VARIANT – This is swiftly selling for $45+shipping. Moon Knight has a very devoted fan base and most of his incentive variants tend to command solid prices. I think this will settle to about $75 and just stay there.
LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMER:
HARLEY QUINN & SUICIDE SQUAD APRIL FOOLS SPEC #1 JIM LEE BLACK & WHITE 1:50 VARIANT – This variant was doing about $60-70 last week and has held that price. What’s worth noting is that, over the past week, the marketplace was pretty flooded with over 70 (sold/still active) copies. And…. they just keep selling. Once the market dries up (which will take a while), these will start seeing a nice bump.
BLACK PANTHER #1 was in warm, and all covers are still warm. I don’t see a ton of movement on these.
MOCKINGBIRD #2 CHANG 1:25 VARIANT – This is an interesting book. There aren’t many listed and not a lot have sold either. The most recent copy sold for a decently warm $30. While Mockingbird isn’t a high demand character, I have a feeling that stores ordered really low on this book and this 1:25 is going to be really hard to find. I expect a decent jump for this.
ACTIONVERSE #1 (ACTION LAB)
AETHER AND EMPIRE #1 (BLUE JUICE COMICS) – There seems to be a lot more new comic publishers lately.
BLACK ROAD #1 (IMAGE)
BLADE BUNNY #1 (ANTARTIC PRESS)
CAPTAIN AMERICA 75TH ANNIVERSARY MAGAZINE #1
DOCTOR WHO 9TH #1 – All covers
ERATHUNE #1 (STRANGER) – Though the 1:5 Variant is selling for about $10. This is another title to keep an eye on.
HEARTTHROB #1 (ONI)
HOUSE OF PENANCE #1
GOLDIE VANCE #1 (BOOM) – I would keep an eye on this. Grab the 1:20 Variant if you can find it for cover.
GOTHAM ACADEMY #17 – Only putting this on here JUST so I can say how much I love this cover.
HOT DAMN #1 (IDW) – All covers
JACKPOT #1 (AFTERSHOCK COMICS)
PICTORIAL CONFESSIONS #1 – Golden Age reprint.
PRINCELESS MAKE YOURSELF #1 (ACTION LAB)
ROCKET RACCOON AND GROOT #4 LIEFELD 1:15 VARIANT – I actually love Liefeld. However, his version of Rocket is not my favorite. It’s selling for about $10.
STARFIRE #11 ROMITA VARIANT
STAR WARS SPECIAL C-3PO #1 – This book (including variants) just isn’t moving. I think there’s some Star Wars fatigue. There are too many Star War titles out now and it waters down both interest and the overall value. Star Wars titles have huge print runs and most of us speculators have learned to stay away. Even the 1:1000 variant has 2 copies sitting at $1200 – $1400 on ebay right now. I expect those to eventually sell around $700.
