The Day After Wednesday for 4/20/17
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, 4/19/17. They could still be at your shop.
FAILSAFE #1 (VAULT) – Vault is killing it lately. Their new book FAILSAFE is selling for a consistent $10.
MS MARVEL #17 X-23/WOLVERINE KUBERT VARIANT (MARVEL) – I thought this was a 1:25 until our reader “mmmoussa” pointed it out that this was a non-ratio variant. Since it’s selling for $15-$20, that’s pretty solid.
REDNECK #1 (IMAGE) – This was one of the hottest books of the week. Everyone received plenty of notice to go get a copy, thereby selling it out and sending it to a 2nd print. It saw some hard flooding yesterday morning, taking it below $10. Currently, consistent sales show it moving well at $10. The flood is still there as there are a lot of copies listed and should hold it to $10 for a while. I honestly can’t tell what the long term for this book is after that. The B&W ashcan saw a dip down to $30 yesterday as well. It has fared really well and bounced back to $45-$50.
RED SONJA #4 CAMPBELL ART BOARD 1:25 VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – As we move into the “later” issues of Red Sonja, it’s time to start paying attention to the Campbell variants. As the print run decreases, it could be a great time to start grabbing these harder to find variants. Campbell is one of the best value retention artists and people chase everything he does. The CAMPBELL ART BOARD 1:25 VARIANT is currently selling for $40. There are only 2 listed.
ROYALS #2 GRANOV 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) – This was pre-selling for a solid $60 and made every speculator request it from their LCS. Several sellers flipped them to eBay only to drag them down to $30. However, today they are bouncing back at $45 and moving up. There are still some listed for $40, though I expect those to move by the end of day.
WORLD READER #1 1:10 VARIANT (AFTERSHOCK) – Man, this was a hard book to find and easily the hottest book of the week. It’s selling for a solid $40, which is holding from its presales. What’s the long term for this book? The only thing I know about it is that everyone was looking for a copy. So, now what? I would love to hear how people liked it (seeing that even the standard cover has disappeared around me).
LAST WEEK’S HOT BOOKS
GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #19 DEODATO 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – So, last week this book hovered firmly at $25. However, fans of this book were right! Yesterday saw an auction sale of $51. There are currently only a few listed, with most set at $40. As this is trending upwards, it’s definitely a book to keep an eye on.
HEATHEN #3 (VAULT) – Cover A dipped a bit, selling roughly between $8-10 (with an outlier of $17). The Tess Fowler Cover 1:5 variant has held and is still selling for $30.
SEVEN TO ETERNITY #5 1:25 FOIL VARIANT (IMAGE) – This dipped a little bit to $50. That should hold as there aren’t that many listed. This book just seems to move.
SOLAR FLARE #1 (SCOUT) – Here’s another hot book from last week to drop. This is selling for $10 shipped.
GODSHAPER #1 AJA VARIANT (BOOM) – The Aja variant saw some tiny bumps to about $15 shipped. It might have some legs. Granted they’re tiny legs, but it’s still moving up.
WEAPON X #1 LIEFELD 1:50 (MARVEL) – This book got exciting for a hot minute when it saw a sale of $76 over the weekend. But like Kelis and her “boys”, this book’s milkshake brought all the books to the yard and dragged it back down to $30.
Z NATION #1 1:20 VIRGIN VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – Dang it, Mel V. was right on this one. A copy recently sold for $56. There are only two listed on eBay, one at $40 and another at $75. I don’t know if that price will hold, but it’s another to keep an eye on.
GOD COUNTRY #1 4TH PTG (IMAGE) – Some hopeful sellers have this listed for $25. However, it’s currently only selling for cover. I like this one the best out of the subsequent printings.
GREATEST ADVENTURE #1 (DYNAMITE)
GUARDIANS OF GALAXY DREAM ON #1 (MARVEL) – Hmmm, oooookay Marvel.
INVINCIBLE #135 SUMMIT APRIL FOOL’S DAY (IMAGE) – So, the color variant never showed up due to a rumored “error”. Not sure what it was, but the B&W Summit variants DID show and are currently selling for about $15. I saw shops selling it for this amount (which is why it’s in “cool”), so hopefully you got it for less!
LADY DEATH OBLIVION KISS #1 HUGHES PREMIUM FOIL (COFFIN) – These were doing pretty well at about $40 yesterday and have now settled to about $27.
PLASTIC #1 (OF 5) (IMAGE) – Sold out, but not showing any movement off of cover price.
SECRET EMPIRE #0 (MARVEL)
UNCIVIL WAR INAUGURAL EDITION COLORING BOOK: TRUMP VS. HILLARY (ANTARCTIC PRESS) – Selling for $7….. so just keep your copy and color yourself some Trump. Grab yourself some extra orange crayons though.
