The Day After Wednesday for 6/28/17 (WEEKEND EDITION)
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” WEEKEND EDITION 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, 6/28/17. They could still be at your shop.
BATMAN ELMER FUDD #1 (DC) – Apparently this was the hottest book of the week. On Wednesday, both covers of this book were steadily selling for cover price. Then, all of a sudden a set sells for $24. Prices ended up bouncing from cover price up to $10 for each cover, then to $16 and then up to $30 for a set. The Weeks cover even hit its own height of $30. Several steady sales saw both covers selling for $20 each. However, as more copies hit eBay, some flooding started dragging prices down a little. While there are a lot of copies currently listed, the Weeks cover is selling for $15, the Fingerman cover for $10 and $25 for a set. I can't see prices holding for too long.
EDGE OF VENOMVERSE #1 (OF 5) 1:50 MATTINA VARIANT (MARVEL) – I actually thought this was a store variant. It's doing pretty well and selling for about $55-$60. The most recent sale was for $68 shipped. Having seen so many Mattina store variants lately, it was pretty easy to ignore this book. However, I have a feeling that when others also realize that this was a 1:50 store incentive (and that it's selling well) and it's not a store variant, it should slowly climb in price.
WONDER WOMAN 25 FRISON “B” VARIANT (DC) – I like to call this the Jennifer Connolly variant, which is totally not a bad thing as I've crushed on Ms. Connolly since “The Rocketeer” (totally still awesome). This variant is gorgeous. Fellow collectors seem to feel the same and one even shelled out $20 shipped for one copy on Wednesday. While there were several sales around $15, copies dipped back down to cover…… and now trending back upwards. If you want a copy, it'll cost you at least $13 shipped. If Frison gets even more popular, this will be the variant people hunt for. Now I need to go find one.
LAST WEEK'S HOT COMICS
BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #3 1:50 JOHNSON VARIANT (VALIANT) – Last week this book was selling for $60. The most recent sale for this variant was for $40. However, looking at the prices of the 1st issue's 1:50 variant, as well as the $60 price tag for the 2nd issue's 1:50, I think that this will also end around that $60 price tag.
NICK FURY #3 1:25 BLANCO VARIANT (MARVEL) – Prices have been all over for this. It's seen a sale as high as $39 and one as low as $8. The most common sale price is around $25, which is what it was doing last week.
SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #1 (OF 5) 1:25 “NUDE” VARIANT (IMAGE) – While the standard print is still selling for cover, this variant is still holding firm at $40. I'm sure people are hoping for it to rise. However, for right now, it's just hanging in there.
Z NATION #3 PARRILLO 1:20 VIRGIN VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – Well, the only solid sale for this is a $6 international sale. There's only one other copy listed, and it's also a international sale. They're looking for $51+shipping for two of this issue's higher ratio variants (including this 1:20). Looking as this book's previous 1:20 virgin variants, it'll most likely end up around $35/$40 (though issue #2 is still really hard to find).
SPAWN 1 25TH ANNIVERSARY GOLD FOIL (IMAGE) – Prices have been ranging between $10 and $20 for these. They did see some steady heat at $25 yesterday. Surprisingly, they seem to be trending downwards (hence, why it's in warm). I noticed that stores around me saw the buzz on the Spawn Thank You foil and priced these accordingly.

BANKSHOT #1 (DARK HORSE) –
BEAUTIFUL CANVAS #1 (BLACK MASK)
BLOOD BROTHERS #1 (DYNAMITE)
CLUE #1 (IDW)
GFT ROBYN HOOD TAROT ONE SHOT (ZENESCOPE)

MY LITTLE PONY MOVIE PREQUEL #1 (IDW)
SCRIMSHAW #1 (ALTERNA)
SECRET EMPIRE #5 (OF 10) (MARVEL) – The Campbell Secret Empire variants do have some collectors for it. They just don't seem to be doing anything noteworthy. Copies are selling anywhere from $28 to $40. That's not terrible, but with most stores now knowing Campbell's appeal, they tend to mark his books way up.
SECRET WEAPONS #1 (OF 4) 1:50 HITCH VARIANT (VALIANT) – Well, here's a Valiant 1:50 variant that's not doing much on eBay. Currently $20.
SOFTBALL #1 (KEENSPOT)
SPAWN #275 (IMAGE) – I thought this cover was great, however it's only selling for cover right now. I really like the Las Vegas Comic Con McFarlane variant for this book.
STARGATE UNIVERSE BACK TO DESTINY #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)
STAR WARS DROIDS UNPLUGGED #1 (MARVEL)
STREET FIGHTER VS DARKSTALKERS #3 (OF 8) 1:20 LAGACE VARIANT (UDON) – This book saw some strong pre-sales of $40. Currently, it's not moving at all. The lowest available price is $20.
