The Week After San Diego Comic Con 2017 for 7/31/2017

It’s one week after SDCC!  Want to know which exclusive comic books from this year’s San Diego Comic Con are heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Week After Comic Con” 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 during SDCC 2017 (excluding sketchbooks).

For my pricing clarification in this article, anything with a market profit over $50 is SUPER HOT, $15-$49 is HOT, $10-$15 for WARM and $9 or less is COOL.

    I love this kind of stuff. Thanks Matt, top work dude.

  • There was no Valiant Booth at SDCC the Retailer preview black bags were to the retailers that went to the Diamond Lunch those weren’t given out or sold to con goers. The CBLDF variant of Secret Weapons was only $5 at the booth.

  • Ben Steiniger

    I don’t think people realize how hard it is just to do a checklist of all the sdcc books, let alone research the going rate.

    Outstanding Matt.

    • Your right Ben I wasn’t trying to be an ass just pointing out some facts. The research alone had to be exhausting Matt Great Job.

      • Ben Steiniger

        I didn’t think you were–if it sounded like it was directed at you, I apologize. I was more just commenting how much time this had to have taken him to put together lol.

        • Matt DeVoe

          Yeah, I didn’t take it in that context as well.
          Thanks Ben, yeah this turned into a bit of a rabbit hole. It took longer then I thought. Lol. I mostly wanted to create this as a future reference. I know some of these exclusives can tend to dry up through the years and then finding info on them to be really hard to find. I figure, having this list can provide some insight if any of them do get hot in the future.

  • userX745

    I was at SDCC and did not even know about a few of these variants / exclusives. LOL

  • Great job Matt! Thanks for the breakdown! Next time please just do this with the future prices before the con and keep it between us! 😝
    Awesome work my man!

    • Matt DeVoe

      Totally! It makes me re-think my SDCC strategy for the future. Thursday morning is key. Stay away from long lines, stay away from overpriced exclusives (Aspen, Power Rangers, etc.) and focus on small print run books. Generally though, almost every book sells for more then the purchase price.

  • Khoi Cakes

    Great job Matt. I don’t think any books are going to catch fire like the SDCC WCNGH did a couple of years back. Hopefully that’s a lesson learned.

  • Love the Brooks Psylocke cover

    • Matt DeVoe

      Me too. It’s easily my favorite cover of the convention. I love it.
      Ebay seller Drewbizz bought a ton of these (I think like 250 out of the 1000 print run). He’s been selling through 20-50 copies at one price. He then increases it a little, sells another 20-50…. and then increases the price, and so on. I think he’s almost sold out. Once he does, the availability of this book will disappear. I think it’s the sleeper of the con and my pick for the best long term book. Mark Brook’s popularity is gaining and this cover is just gorgeous. We shall see.

  • Great article Matt, appreciate the time it must have taken to put it together. I picked up the Lola XOXO foil variant from Aspen which was limited to 200, but couldn’t see it on your list. It’s probably dropped into to the permafrost layer knowing my luck, but I do like Siya Oum’s art.

    • Matt DeVoe

      It’s in there under Aspen. The Non marvel/DC Turner exclusives were only selling in bundles on eaby, so I grouped them together. And yeah, they’re going pretty cheap. The set’s selling for about $30 for 5 books including Lola.
