The Day After Wednesday for 9/27/2017
Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day After” 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, 9/27/17. They could still be at your shop.
REDNECK #6 FELICI PINK/RED SIGNATURE VARIANT (IMAGE) – I both love and hate these lazy variants. It’s an insignificant variant change to truly warrant such a high price. Yet, these are the books that sneak past retailers and reward early shoppers. Its a great feeling finding them mixed in with the other books for cover price. It’s a treasure hunt, and I totally get that. While this isn’t selling as high as Walking Dead (which also featured a new character), it’s $35-$40 price tag is pretty solid. I would highly recommend NOT buying these for over $25 as that’s where they will settle.
SPIDER-GWEN #24 (MARVEL) – Gwenom is here! I swear, this is been talked about for so long, that I thought this happened months ago. I'll admit, she has a cool design. But man, I try not to be too critical about a cover, but I'm just not a fan of this one. And Robbi Rodriguez's style is awesome too. This just isn't my preference. With that said, it's currently selling for about $8 to $13 shipped. It seems to be trending upwards. The J. Scott Campbell covers are the way to go for this. I personally just want the Gwenom and Spider-Gwen covers.
BLACK MAGIC #8 FRISON VARIANT (IMAGE) – Ms. Frison is awesome. It is known. This variant is definitely not abundant. Only a few copies have been listed and sold, which have ranged from cover price to $12 shipped. As I write this, a copy was just listed for $27.99. I’m sure it well sell by the time you read this article.
BEAUTIFUL DEATH, THE (STATIX) #1 (OF 5) GRAHAM VARIANT (TITAN) – Don’t underestimate Brandon Graham's covers. He’s an indie artist who has multiple books that command high prices just for his art. His fans are loyal and will gladly pay those high prices. His cover for this book has been selling from cover price to $12 shipped. I would recommend grabbing one if you see it.
DUCKTALES #1 1:25 SKETCH VARIANT (IDW) – Man, try finding this. It’s a tough one. Granted, it’s not the most dynamic variant, but it’s selling for $25 to 34 shipped. The IDW Disney variants tend to rest in that price point. So, I don’t expect it to jump.
GENERATIONS HAWKEYE & HAWKEYE #1 MATTINA 2ND PTG (MARVEL) This is going for about $7. That’s actually the highest day after I’ve seen for any of the Mattina Generation 2nd prints.
AARDVARK COMICS #1 (OF 1) (VANAHEIM)
ARYA #1 (ANTARTIC)
BLACK PANTHER #18 FRISON VARIANT (MARVEL) – Another great Frison! However, it’s only selling for cover. It doesn’t feature a key Marvel character like it’s connected cover sisters. People will still need it though.
CAPTAIN KRONOS (HAMMER) #1 (TITAN)
DISHONORED PEERESS AND THE PRICE #1 (TITAN)
FU JITSU #1 (AFTERSHOCK)
GENERATIONS CAPTAIN AMERICAS #1 (MARVEL)
GENERATIONS MORALES & PARKER SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL)
GRAVELAND #1 (SCOUT)
INFINITE LOOP NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH #1 (OF 6) (IDW)
MALEFIC #1 (OF 8) (DEVILS DUE)
MARVEL LEGACY #1 (MARVEL) – It’s always really shocking to me to see how little Alex Ross variants sell for. The 1:50 color is selling for about $27 and the 1:100 for about $40. Maybe it’s just the title itself or that his covers tend to be on high print runs? Case in point, even the 1:500 Deodato variant is only selling for $170. Heck, there’s a Quesada 1:500 B&W variant that’s only selling for $100 (though that’s trending upwards at $160). I can’t remember the last time any high ratio variant like those sold for THAT low the same week. Those could be a smart buy right now. The 1:1000 Deodato B&W variant is at $550. The party variants all range around the $15-20 amount.
MICRONAUTS FIRST STRIKE #1 (IDW)
RAT QUEENS SPECIAL ORC DAVE #1 (ONE-SHOT) (IMAGE)
SPAWN #278 (IMAGE)
VENOMVERSE #4 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – The 1:50 Bagley variant has a venomized Rocket Raccoon. Just mentioning. That variant is selling for $32.
