THE DAY AFTER WEDNESDAY FOR 8/9/2017


Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day After” (Late 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, 8/9/17. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

 

MISTER MIRACLE #1 (OF 12) (DC) – Man, this sure escalated. Since Rebirth started, there haven’t been too many of its titles to pass the $10 mark. Cover A is selling for $12 and cover B is selling for $15, $30 for a set.  Mister Miracle is a great character and I’m interested to see where this goes. It’s only scheduled to run 12 issues, so I’m wary of its long term potential.

SUPERGIRL #12 ARTGERM “B” VARIANT (DC) – I love this cover. I tried hard to secure several copies, but every store I visited either sold out or only received a few.  I got one copy and considered myself lucky. This is selling for $10, but there are a lot listed. The price will come down a bit but I think it will do well long term.

TOYETICA #1 (ACTION LAB) – I didn’t see a single copy of this anywhere. It saw a height of $17 but has since settled to $7-$10.

 

LAST WEEK RECAP

GENERATIONS BANNER HULK & TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1 (MARVEL) 1:50 ROSS VARIANT – At one point last week there was some hope for this book when a copy sold for $75. Then it went as low as $28. It has since leveled out to about ratio, $50. Alex Ross variants have such a hard time retaining value. Which is a shame, because he’s unarguably one of the best comic artists in the business. Some of his covers are also some of the rarest of the big two, like the Marvel 75th Anniversary 1:300 Sketch variants.

GHOST STATION ZERO #1 (OF 4) CLOONAN VARIANT (IMAGE) – Cloonan’s variant is still selling for $7-$8.

ROBOTECH #1 ARTGERM VARIANT (TITAN) – This is still selling well, just not AS well as it did last week. $7 seems to be the going price. The Boston comic con foil has stolen a lot of its thunder and is pre-selling for $50.

TMNT DIMENSION X #1 EASTMAN 1:20 VARIANT (IDW) – Last week this variant jumped to $60, and I thought THAT was good. This is now a $100 book. Turtle Power.

WARM

 

REDLANDS #1 FOIL VARIANT (IMAGE) – Sooo, I guess Image went from “no variants” to “lets foil everything!” The standard issue is sold out, but still selling for cover. The foil is selling for $15-$20.

COOL

 

DANGER DOLL SQUAD #0 (ACTION LAB)

FIRST STRIKE #1 (IDW)

GENERATIONS PHOENIX & JEAN GREY #1 (MARVEL) ROSS 1:50 VARIANT – $40

GHOST MONEY #1 (OF 10) (LION FORGE)

INHUMANS ONCE FUTURE KINGS #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – Seeing the bad reviews that are coming in for the show, I would stay far away from investing any money in Inhumans right now.

NIGHTS DOMINION SEASON 2 #1 (ONI)

QUAKE CHAMPIONS #1 (OF 4) (TITAN)

SHADOW #1 (DYNAMITE)

SHERLOCK THE GREAT GAME #1 (OF 6) (TITAN)

STAR WARS ROGUE ONE CASSIAN & K2SO SPECIAL #1 (MARVEL)

TMNT DIMENSION X #2 (IDW) – There is no 1:20 for this like there was for #1. Apparently, 1:20 is the magic ratio for TMNT books.

ZOMBIES ASSEMBLE 2 #1 (OF 4) (MARVEL)

  • I, too, was left feeling fortunate when my preconceived notions of grabbing multiple Supergirl 12’s ended up with me being lucky enough to snag just one copy out of 4 shops. The Mister Miracle (awesome book!!) was a surprise from a speculation standpoint and has me wanting to buy up any remaining copies and do a quick flip on them as I feel the prices will settle down rather quickly on it.

  • Supergirl 12 will fade as Supergirl 13 another Artgerm B cover comes out

  • Yea I’m staying away from mini series as their value seems to rarely hold up. SO no Mr.Miracle for me.

  • Crazy how a couple years ago the Inhumans were at the top of my list for most anticipated to have a solid presence in the comic and tv/movie world. Now I couldn’t care less. Marvel has succeeded in marginalizing yet another property with mega potential.

  • amazing Spider-Man #607 j scott campbell should have made the top 3 on the list….it suddenly took off like a rollercoaster….yet I don’t know why…?

  • Thanks again for another “The Day After Wednesday” post. I love this article.
