The Day After Wednesday for 8/12/16


Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day After Wednesday” 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, 8/10/16. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

Jim Hensons Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Special #1 Mike Allred VariantLABYRINTH 30TH ANNIV SPECIAL #1 1:10 ALLRED VARIANT (BOOM) – Selling for $30-$40, this $9.99 cover priced book was severely under ordered by shops. My local shops only ordered 3 copies each. It's an excellent cover. On the plus side, if you want one, you can buy one for $14.99 off of Boom's website.

LAST WEEK'S HOT COMICS

STL012667 1537604_xl

ANIMOSITY (AFTERSHOCK) – This book was the surprise hit last week. The 1:10 variant is still selling strong for $40 and the regular issue is doing about $10. The blind box variants ship in September and Frankie's comics is also doing a limited variant. It's a fun read, so this should have some legs for a while.

HILLBILLY 2 (ALBATROSS) – While many stores were shorted last week, it appears that copies showed up this week to stores that didn't get their order. This is selling well at $10. This issue is supposed to have an incredibly small print run. So we'll how it does over the next few weeks and if interest holds for this title.

WARM

STL013113SONS OF ANARCHY REDWOOD ORIGINAL #1 1:20 TATTOO VARIANT – This is warm…. for now. There's only one currently listed for $50. The few copies that sold yesterday were between $16-$20. I had a copy in my hand and put it back. I have a feeling that I'm going to regret that. Watch this variant closely.

COOL

All-New_All-Different_Avengers_Annual_1_CoverACCUSED #1 (MARVEL) – the Fiona Staples variant is nice…. But only selling for $5.

ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS ANNUAL #1

ALL STAR BATMAN #1 – Selling for a tad over cover at $5.

BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1 (IMAGE) – Also selling for a tad over cover at $5.

BLUE HOUR #1 (ACTION LAB)

CAVEWOMAN FREAKIN YETIS #1 (OF 1) (AMRYL) – There are 7 covers (warning: 2 are topless). The Monty Moore (limited to 450 copies) variant is a nice cover and is selling for $15. Some of the other covers (like Valentina and the Budd Roots) are all doing a little over $10. All of the variants don't seem to be incentives, but just limited from 375 to 550 copies. $9-$15 seems low for each cover being so limited.

DEATHSTROKE REBIRTH #1 – I can't tell you how disappointed I am that there are no incentive variants for Rebirth. It takes the fun out of it for me since I love variants. But, with that said, it does save people $!

ISLAND 731 #1 (OF 6) (AMERICAN GOTHIC)

  • Animosity and Hillbilly are my favorites of 2016 so far. Agreed about no Rebirth variants.

  • Completely mystified by Superwoman not being the hottest book in the country
    -Biggest twist since T-Bolts #1 19 years ago.
    -Iconic character death
    -Great creator

    I sold the two copies of the Dodson cover I had at Boston Comic Con today (Dodson and Jimenez are there) for $5 to someone who said I was the only seller with copies of it (didn’t see either cover around). I’d have priced them higher, but eBay prices are as low as $2.

      I don’t think people really know about those twists…. Or worse they don’t care. I think rebirth had a lot of excitement and interest at the beginning. But the lack of collectibility (incentive variants) and onslaught of bi-monthly books are burning people out financially and spec wise. My shop has (I kid you not) 100’s of each rebirth titles. Being returnable doesn’t help. BUT, I hear it’s all selling really well. So, who knows. Give it time.

    I thought Superwoman was great.

  • Superman, another Superman, Supergirl, two Superwomen at the same time … sorry I am getting confused…
