The Day After Wednesday for 11/10/17


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, 11/8/17. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

HARBINGER RENEGADE #0 1:25 TIESMA VARIANT (VALIANT) – So, just as a rule… if you see a 1:25 or higher ratio Valiant book, buy it.  This 1:25 is selling for $50.

WARM

VENOM #155 MATTINA 2nd PRINT (MARVEL) – Despite several issues with the 3D covers, I thought a lot of these homage covers were great.  This was easily my favorite out of all of them.  It’s way better than the 3D version (in my opinion).  These 2nd prints are really hard to find.  Most stores are still sitting on a bunch of the 3D copies and refrained from ordering more.  It’s currently selling for $5, but there are only a few listed.  Plus, it’s Mattina. It’s definitely one to watch.  I would also say that some of the other 2nd prints might be worth grabbing

COOL

 

1985 BLACK HOLE REPO #1 (HEAVY METAL)

BATMAN LOST #1 (METAL) (DC)

COYOTES #1 (IMAGES)

DIE KITTY DIE HOLLYWOOD OR BUST #3 (ASTRO COMICS) – While this isn’t selling for much, the “I Love Lucy” homage variant is still a great.  It’s fun and I like the Archie art style on it.

FALLEN SUNS #1 (CHAPTERHOUSE)

FORCE #1 (ACTION LAB) – Man, what’s the worst possible name to call your comic?  Answer: “Force”.  Do you know how many books come up with FORCE #1 and COMIC in it?   Answer: 9,129.  It’s a great way to bury new indie books.

GFT DANCE OF THE DEAD #1 (OF 6) (ZENESCOPE)

HARCOURT LEGACY #1 (OF 3) (ACTION LAB)

HEAVY METAL #288 (HEAVY METAL) – Death Dealer cover!

IRON MAIDEN LEGACY OF THE BEAST #1 (OF 5) (HEAVY METAL) – The “B” Royos Variant is starting to pick-up a little.

KID LOBOTOMY #2 (IDW) – I considered buying the foil for this as well as picking up the corrected foil for #1.  Both neither are really doing well.  The foil for #2 is selling for $6 and the fixed #1 foil is $6.  The foil error is actually pretty significant when you look at the fixed copy.  Still, the recalled copy has dropped significantly to $7-$10.  Man, interest just died on these.

KONG ON PLANET OF APES #1 (TITAN)

PORT OF EARTH #1 (IMAGE) – Writer Zack Kaplan is awesome.  This book is interesting and I definitely grabbed one.  It’s not doing much right now on the back market. There’s a NYCC ashcan for this that might be worth grabbing.

RIVERS OF LONDON CRY FOX #1 (TITAN)

SINK #2 (OF 5) (COMIXTRIBE) – The standard “B” variant is doing well at $19. There’s not many copies hitting eBay either.

SLOTS #1 2ND PRINT (IMAGE) – This is a great cover.  It’s selling for cover price… but I love it.

TRANSFORMERS FIRST STRIKE #1 (IDW)

WONDERFUL WORLD OF TANK GIRL #1 (TITAN)

  • slots 2nd print, there’s none to be found..

  • Of course they would have to pick the ugliest cover for the 1:25. Roberto De La Torre Cover is so much better than this POS cover. I mean check out the size of the dude’s head compared to the rest of his body.

  • Kantakerous75 Took the pudding right out of my cup. It’s a shite cover. I put my money that the $50 is a fluke and that next month it will be a >$10 book. Of course now that it was mentioned here I’ll probably eat my shoe. Valiant variants are usually just like any other publisher’s variant, cover and quantity, but there are plenty of shite covered covers from Valiant, and they aren’t worth pudding. I feel like this one will follow suit. I’d rather foot the bill for the De La Torre, even if it is just a B cover.

    All that said, Harbinger Renegade is one of Valiant’s top 3 worst books since the 2012 relaunch. I wouldn’t recommend it. Go buy some pudding pops instead.
