The Day After Wednesday for 9/29/16
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, 9/28/16. They could still be at your shop.
UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #12 1:15 COSPLAY VARIANT – Popular cosplayer Riki “Riddle” Lecotey managed to make this hard to find cosplay variant decent. Stores are still under ordering these cosplay variants, causing prices to jump to $40-$45. However, the success is mostly thanks to Riki. Low orders didn’t help the terrible Ultimates #11 Galactus cosplay variant and the Thunderbolts #5 Winter Soldier cosplay variant. Those have captured the “what were they thinking” feeling that the original cosplay variants provided.
LAST WEEK’S TOP PERFORMERS
STREET FIGHTER SWIMSUIT SPECIAL RUFFINO 1:10 VARIANT – I absolutely thought that this variant would be dead by this week. It’s selling for $40, which is really good for a 1:10. There are still multiple listings hoping for that $75. That’s not going to happen.
SEVEN TO ETERNITY #1 (IMAGE) – Prices have mostly held over the past week. Each issue sells for about $10 separately and $30 for a 3 cover set. The blank variant has proven itself as the hardest to find and sells for $20. The downside is there are a lot of these sets and individual books listed on eBay and the majority aren’t moving. Undercutting hasn’t kicked in yet, but it will. People with multiple sets will want to move excess books before they’re stuck with them.
Slow week. Nothing warm and the hottest thing is a Cosplay variant. Yawn.
BATMAN BEYOND REBIRTH #1
BLUE BEETLE #1
CASTOFFS, THE #1 (ROAR)
DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1 – Even the variant isn’t doing much. I like Ron Lim & Scottie Young, but why can’t we get better variants like the Deadpool #45 Ultimate Spider-man Homage Variant? The Fried Pie Liefeld variant is the way to go for this book. There’s nothing new or fresh about it, but it’s cheap at $14 and it’s a Liefeld variant.
DISNEY PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN #1 – No variant? Bummer.
DISNEY STAR VS THE FORCES OF EVIL #1 – This is Disney’s attempt at a Cartoon Network-like show. The show is in its infancy and still has time to gain popularity. I don’t think stores ordered many of these. Keep in mind, that kid comics VERY rarely increase in value.
FROSTBITE #1 (OF 6) (VERTIGO)
JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS #1 – Even the JSC variants are barely moving.
MASK REVOLUTION #1 (IDW)
MICRONAUTS REVOLUTION #1 (IDW)
SENTIENT #1 (HERMES PRESS)
STAR TREK WAYPOINT #1 (IDW)
SURGEON X #1 (IMAGE)
TANK GIRL GOLD #1 (OF 4) (TITAN)
TARZAN ON THE PLANET OF THE APES #1 (OF 5) (DARK HORSE)
TEEN TITANS REBIRTH #1 – Hey, Trey liked it. So, worth a read at least!
THREE STOOGES RED WHITE & STOOGE #1 (AMP) – I’m not suppose to pass judgment on the book itself, but I’m interested in who/where the market is for this.
VIKINGS UPRISING #1
WOMEN OF DARBY POP #1
