The Day After Wednesday for 9/22/16
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, 9/21/16. They could still be at your shop.
STREET FIGHTER SWIMSUIT SPECIAL RUFFINO 1:10 VARIANT – As soon as a copy was listed for $100, people started rushing to their LCS to find a copy of this relatively cheap variant. However, many didn’t check to see if any actually sold for that price. Not even one copy sold for that much. Currently, this sells for $35. One international sale moved a copy at $65, which seems to be the height. There are about 7 current listings and most are holding out for their promised $100. There is some good news for this variant as a couple auctions are moving past $30. So, all In all, it may not be $100, however $30 for a 1:10 is pretty good. It’s important to note that 7 copies aren’t a lot for a variant that caused a mad scramble yesterday. EBay should be flooded, but it’s not. It could have a shot at increasing even more.
LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMERS
GWENPOOL #6 COSPLAY VARIANT – CBSI site member Joe Gualtieri made a great point in last week’s article comments section. These cosplay variants are doing better not only due to lack of store orders, but also due to the fact that these are professional Cosplayers who have large fan bases. That has brought some validity and collectability to this round of variant over the terrible set earlier in the year. Cosplayer Alana Waffles, is helping drive her variant to a slight price bump since last week, jumping from $10 to it’s current $15-$17.
SCARLET WITCH #10 1:15 COSPLAY VARIANT – Cosplayer Yaya Han is helping drive this 1:15 variant to a $30+ book and slowly climbing.
SEVEN TO ETERNITY #1 (IMAGE) – Rick Remember is awesome. He’s easily one of the best writers out there right now. There is a lot of positive buzz surrounding this book. It’s doing well, so this is a very strong warm. There are 4 covers of equal distribution. Cover A is the current cover to get as it’s selling for about $8-$10. Several of the other covers, like cover B, are just starting to move today as well. Pay close attention to the announced NYCC exclusives. I wouldn’t be surprised if this book was listed as a convention variant. That copy will go nuts as this series should see some solid legs. It’s also worth noting that this is already heading to a 2nd printing.
BRITANNIA #1 (OF 4) – There’s a 1:50 selling for a mild $20-$30.
CYBORG #1 (DC)
DARK TALES FROM THE VOKESVERSE #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)
EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN ANNUAL #1
RAVEN #1 (DC)
REVOLUTION #1 (IDW) – It looks cool, but none of the covers are doing anything right now.
ROM REVOLUTION #1 (IDW)
STEAM WARS CHRONICLES #1
TRINITY #1 (DC)
