The Day After Wednesday for 1/4/2018
After a delay, I'm back for the New Year! 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, 1/3/18. They could still be at your shop.
GREEN LANTERNS #38 (DC) – With the appearance of a new villain team, RED TIDE, both covers are selling for $10. Sets are (obviously) $20. This is so close to being WARM as eBay is currently flooded with copies. Undercutting hasn’t yet started, but probably already has by the time you’re reading this. Don’t fret; a first appearance with the character on the cover is usually a solid long-term spec.
SECRET WEAPONS #0 1:50 POLINA VARIANT (VALIANT) – The 1:50 Polina variant sold for $100 and the 1:20 is primed for $50. Always buy high ratio Valiant variants. They’re fantastic flips. (Corrected: I mentioned that this was a re-numbering. It is not. Thanks to our members for the correction.)
BATMAN #38 (DC) – Yeah, I know. You feel this should be HOT. Yes, both the variant and the standard cover for “The origin of Bruce Wayne” were selling decently between $7-$10 shipped, which roughly doubled your money. Earlier today, sets were selling for $20 shipped. As I write this, the flood has risen and they have dropped to about $13 shipped for a set. A copy of the Tim Sale cover sold for as low as $5.50 shipped. I would personally only buy the Coipel variant as it has the best long term potential.
POPEYE CLASSICS ONGOING #65 ZOMBIE 1:10 VARIANT (IDW) – Remember how overdone Zombie variants were at one point? With the now overdone Venom and Batman Who Laughs variants becoming simply exhausting, this is a well-welcomed old friend. It’s a great variant for a character that you wouldn’t associate being grotesquely zombie-fied. There are no current sales for this insanely hard to find 1:10 variant. I’m leaving this as WARM as I’m positive that it will sell really well once a copy is listed.
BATMAN AND THE SIGNAL #1 (OF 3) (DC)
BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #4 (OF 8) (DC) – Selling for a tad over cover price plus shipping. Sellers are doing well pairing this issue with #3. You’re not making a profit, but it helps issue #3 to sell over solo copies.
COSMO #1 (ARCHIE) – This is currently selling for cover. Full sets of all the variants have been selling for $35-40 shipped. Hopeful sellers have their standard copies listed for around $20.
DUCKTALES #1 2ND PTG (IDW)
GAO #1 (ANTARTIC)
KOSHCHEI THE DEATHLESS #1 (OF 6) (DARK HORSE)
NINJA-K #1 2ND PTG (VALIANT)
PLANET OF THE APES URSUS #1
RISE OF BLACK PANTHER #1 (OF 6) (MARVEL)
ROGUE & GAMBIT #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL)
SINK #1 (OF 5) 2ND PTG (COMIX TRIBE)
TRANSFORMERS VS THE VISIONARIES #1 (OF 5) (IDW) – Keep an eye on the RI-B 1:20 variant. There are no copies for sale and I have a feeling that this could do decently.
VAN HELSING VS ROBYN HOOD #1 (OF 4) (ZENESCOPE)
WALKING DEAD #175 SIENKIEWICZ VARIANT (IMAGE) – I thought these were going to be hard to find. However, the standard cover was sold out at my LCS and a stack of this variant still sat on the shelf.
