The Day After Wednesday for 6/23/16
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, 6/22/16. They could still be at your shop.
HARLEY QUINN #29 1:25 CONNOR VARIANT – I feel like every Harley book has a variant, which tends to water down the value. However, this is a solid $40 right now. It will dip a bit, but still a solid buy. By the way, there's a GameStop rewards variant for this issue that's pretty awesome. None have sold yet, but there's one listed for $99.
LAST WEEK'S TOP PERFORMERS
BATMAN #1 – The standard covers (standard & Tim Sale variant) are still selling for $10 shipped. However, the variant highlights are the Tyler Kirkham Hastings color variant ($40 avg.), the Amazing Comic Con Philip Tan “Harley” Variant (both b&w & color are doing $45 avg.) and the heavy hitter is the Turner Aspen variant. The color is doing $60 avg. and the b&w is $100. If there's any book to hold and tuck away into your collection, it's the Turner b&w. At 1500, that b&w variant is the rarest of them all. A lot of these issues are getting tucked away into collections and will dry up as the years pass.
DARK KNIGHT RETURNS THE LAST CRUSADE #1 – The buzz behind the Sienkiewicz variant didn't seem to do much as it still sits as a $25 book. The Jim Lee 1:500 hit $500 and very few are getting listed. The Miller 1:100 is doing $80 shipped.
GREEN ARROW #1 – Still selling for $10-12 shipped.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #51 – This book was easily the book of the week last week. Show of hands: who here either called or visited a Barnes & Noble this week? First to market copies hit huge numbers. Then people started finding copies and they began flooding eBay. However, while the flood dropped values, copies are still moving consistently at $40. The direct $3.99 version has proven itself as the hardest to find and tends to go for a little more then the B&N version. Error editions tend to have a long life in the after market.
PATSY WALKER AKA HELLCAT #7 – Prices have been fluctuating between $25 & $45 shipped. There are about 13 copies currently listed. The long term value is hard to gauge. Still a great cover, but it'll most likely stabilize at $25 and stay there.
SUN BAKERY #2 1:5 VARIANT – Despite being impossible to find in stores, this has dropped from $40 to $20.
TITANS REBIRTH #1 – The standard cover is doing a bit better then the variant at $14 shipped.
FLASH #1 – Selling for $1 or $2 over cover.
GWENPOOL #3 1:25 FAGAN VARIANT – Solid $30 shipped.
LA MUERTA DESCENT #1 (COFFIN COMICS) – There are a lot of variants for this, most of them are sold on the Coffin Comics site. The foil variant is selling for the most at $50, which is still in stock there for $25.
STAR WARS FORCE AWAKENS #1 – The variants are doing decently, but they're probably overpriced at your LCS. Here's what they're doing to help you gauge a good in-store price: Quesada Sketch 1:300 @ $240, Cassaday 1:200 @ $160, Quesada Color 1:100 @ $80, Cassaday 1:50 @ $25, Noto 1:25 @ $20 & Movie Poster 1:15 @ $10.
WONDER WOMAN #1 – The Cho variant is doing double cover.
AMERICA #1 (OVERGROUND COMICS)
AQUAMAN REBIRTH #1
CIVIL WAR II CHOOSING SIDES #1
DEADPOOL VS. GAMBIT #1 – With the success of Deadpool vs. Spider-man, Marvel has decided to just keep doing the same thing with other Marvel characters.
