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.

HOT

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #12 Cosplay VariantUNBEATABLE 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

Seven to Eternity #1Street Fighter Swimsuit Special #1 Nei Ruffino Homage VariantSTREET 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.

WARM

Slow week. Nothing warm and the hottest thing is a Cosplay variant. Yawn.

COOL

Deadpool Annual #1 Liefeld Fried Pie VariantASSASSINS CREED LOCUS #1 (OF 4) (TITAN)

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.

Disney Stars vs Forces of Evil #1DOCTOR STRANGE ANNUAL #1

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.

    As a “hot” comic, Seven to Eternity is also a great read, you get more than a cover.

    You said and it’s a liefield like that’s a good thing. I know he co created him but he also has more terrible covers than anyone in the history of comics maybe. How he became halfway relevant again is beyond me.. This site is prob the reason.

      Actually I agree with you. My comment was really speaking to the fact that when he draws Deadpool, it seems to sell books. Being the creator of Deadpool, there is a certain level of cache that comes with him doing another cover with the character. I’m definitely not a Liefeld fan, nor do I know many who are. Most of us (if not all) would absolutely agree with you. But, and hear me out, the reason why he’s relevant today and maybe even popular is 100% thanks to nostalgia. I was a child of the 80’s. The height of my childhood collecting came with the dawn of Image. I think my first real comic I ever purchased for myself was Youngblood #1. His style is ridiculous, over the top, completely wrong anatomy and a inability to ever draw hands and feet. But seeing Liefeld, Mcfarlane, Jim Lee, Joe Mad, Silvestri just feels like home. Probably too much of an explanation to basically say I agree with you. Lol.

    I would put him #1 on my most overated artist list. Who would be your guys?

    With SURGEON X #1 going to a 2nd print, I think its at least warm-eligible.

    • Matt D.

      It’s slightly warm today. But, this is all based off of sales yesterday (Thursday). If it sees an increase, I’ll definitely note it in next week’s article.

      Thanks!

    Where do you get the price info from?

    Love Lefield, Campbell, and Mcfarlane. Godfathers of some of the most important keys of the modern era. It’s not nostalgia or movies that make these artist popular it’s the creation of such characters as cable, deadpool, venom and many others along with their unique drawing style. Get over yourselves fanboys and give credit were it is do.
