The Day After Wednesday for 5/26/16
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, 5/25/16. They could still be at your shop.
SUPERMAN LOIS AND CLARK #8 – 1st official new Superboy. No variant for this issue has definitely helped this hit triple cover prices. This should also be a solid climber for a while. Seeing Clark be a father and seeing Superboy in action will be a lot of fun.
CAPTAIN AMERICA STEVE ROGERS #1 HILDEBRANT 1:50 & EPTING 1:50 – This issue seems to have caused people to be a little ticked off with Marvel. Obviously, there's more story here then the last page revealed. The Hildebrant is selling for $50 shipped and the Epting is less at $30. These will both go down.
DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH #1 1:100 VARIANT – Selling for $50-$70. I actually think that an average $60 for this 1:100 is decent. However, this is not rare and it's been heavily printed for a 1:100. My LCS received 8 copies. DC sent most shops extras on top of their incentive order. The print run on the standard issue will be exceptionally high. It's important to remember the intention behind this issue: to kick off the relaunch and get this initial issue into as many reader's hands as possible. That's why it's only $2.99 and all issues are returnable (*edit – these are NOT returnable. Thanks Drew Lujan!). There's absolutely little to no short or long term in this book overall. If you can find this 1:100 under $40, it's worth grabbing. However, due to so many copies out there, this will most likely suffer from eventual market flooding and will drop. I wouldn't invest in these.
SPIDER-MAN DEADPOOL #1 MCGUINNESS 5TH PTG VARIANT – This is selling for $10 shipped. While that's nothing too exciting, the potential is long term. It all depends how fast copies move and what the print run ends up being.
ACCELERATORS RELATIVITY #1 (BLUEJUICE COMICS)
BUTTERFLY GATE #1 (IMPROPER BOOKS) – There's not a single copy listed or sold on eBay. It appears that this is also more of self contained story at $12.99.
DISNEY MAGIC KINGDOM COMICS #1
FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS #1
JUSTICE LEAGUE #50 – Darkseid war is awesome. Grail is a great villain. It's nice to have a strong female villain too. There aren't many in comics in general.
NIGHTHAWK #1 1:25 VARIANT – Selling for $15-$25 shipped. I don't see any long term potential.
SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #1 – None of the variants seem to be doing anything right now. I love Jim Lee, but this reimagined Scooby Doo is just……. not right.
SQUARRIORS VOL 02 SUMMER #1
STAN LEE CHAKRA RISE OF INFINITUS #1
SUPERMAN #52 (FINAL DAYS)
ULTRACAT #1 (ANTARCTIC PRESS) – People love cats. Maybe they love super cats too? I think this will be pretty hard to find and it's absolutely worth grabbing a copy.
