The Day After Wednesday for 9/7/17
Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day After” 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, 9/6/17. They could still be at your shop.
WALKING DEAD #171 PINK SIGNATURE (IMAGE) – There’s debate whether this is a 1:7 or 1:10, regardless it was easily the hottest book in a super quiet week. This is selling for $75. Even the regular prints are starting to gain traction. I’m not loving these covers…. the one with Princess on the front is strangely proportioned.
*Yawn* Nothing. What a slow week!!
ACTIONVERSE ONGOING #1 (ACTION LAB)
ASTONISHING X-MEN #3 BIANCHI 1:50 VARIANT – $20 market value for a 1:50? Ouch.
BLACK SABLE #1 (OF 6) (ZENESCOPE)
BOMBSHELLS UNITED #1 (DC)
DARK NIGHTS METAL #1 (OF 6) 2ND PTG (DC)
DASTARDLY AND MUTTLEY #1 (OF 6) (DC)
EVIL WITHIN, THE #1 (TITAN)
FRUIT NINJA #1 (DYNAMITE) – I actually appreciate this comic. Why? Well, Dynamite knows that kids spend a lot of time with mobile gaming. It’s really a no brainer to create material based of that content to appeal to new readers. Is it a stretch story wise? Of course. But who cares. It’s for kids.
GENERATIONS IRON MAN & IRONHEART #1
KINGSMAN RED DIAMOND #1 GOLD RETAILER VARIANT (IMAGE) – Selling for $12 shipped.
LAZARETTO #1 (OF 5) (BOOM)
MADE MEN #1 (ONI)
MILLENNIUM GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE #1 (OF 2) (LETTERHEAD COMICS)
SCALES & SCOUNDRELS #1 (IMAGE)
STAR WARS ADVENTURES #1 (IDW) – Wait… IDW? Why isn’t this Marvel? Anywho… this is worst that I’ve seen a 1:50 do for a major popular title in a while. You can pick one up on eBay for $13
STAR WARS: CAPTAIN PHASMA #1 (MARVEL) – There’s some cool covers… but they’re all selling below ratio. Definitely don’t buy Star Wars variants on release day (unless they’re cheap!). Especially high ratio ones.
TRUMP’S TITANS #1 (KEENSPOT) – This is tough book to obtain readers for. If you’re anti-Trump, you’re not going to want this in your house. If you’re pro-Trump, it obviously seems like a parody/mock book, so you’re probably not going to pick it up. You really have to walk the line in between those to be able to enjoy it. With that said, these had some heat on Wednesday and has since dropped. At it’s height, all covers were each selling for $10. They’re all mostly selling for cover or a max $5 now.
VENOMVERSE #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – The variants aren’t doing much for this book. Like many have mentioned already, the Venomized character thing is immensely overplayed. I love Venom and enjoy many various Venom variants, but this is really starting to become white noise. Between all the store exclusives and retailer variants, I honestly can’t think of another cover theme that has been done to death THIS much. Obviously, folks are making a lot of money off creating and selling them. So, as long as we keep buying them, they’ll keep making them. With that said……. I love the Bradshaw 1:100 variant, despite that it’s only selling for $50. I’m still not buying it though! I think others are doing the same.
VENOMVERSE WAR STORIES #1 (MARVEL) – Too much Marvel!
