The Day After Wednesday for 1/20/2018
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, 1/17/18. They could still be at your shop.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VENOM INC OMEGA #1 1:50 DELL’OTTO (MARVEL) – Phew! Finally, an actual HOT book that is seeing profits over just a few dollars!! This is doing fantastic at $100 and I don’t see it ever going below that. Honestly, at first glance, I thought Spidey was having web-performance issues. Then I was able to see the web wrapping around him pulled in from his bottom hand and felt WAY better about this cover.
AVENGERS #676 BROOKS COVER A (MARVEL) – I completely missed this (thanks to our readers for the heads up). Avengers #676 is selling between $18 to $20 shipped. That's really strong for a brand new standard cover. The legacy variant is selling for a little less at $11, with one recent sale of $17.
CALL OF THE SUICIDE FOREST #1 (OF 5) (AMIGO) – Prices on this have moved around over the last couple days. This is currently selling for $11-$15 shipped. I think this book has seen some heat due to the recent news the Suicide Forest has received lately. Being such a sensitive subject, I’ll let you decide for yourself on whether this is a book you should buy to flip.
ICE CREAM MAN #1 (IMAGE) – For a comic about Ice Cream, it sure is hot! Both covers are selling for $15 shipped, or $26 for a set. HOWEVER, as I write this, there are roughly 77 listings for this title. Copies are actually selling briskly, with around 27 various copies selling today around these “hot” prices. All it takes is a handful of under cutters to drag it down. I’ll be interested to see how it holds over the week. I think it’ll just drop a little to $10 shipped.
STRANGERS IN PARADISE XXV #1 BLANK VARIANT (ABSTRACT STUDIOS) – While the standard cover isn’t doing much, it’s worth noting that the blank variant is selling for about $10-$12 shipped.
TEETHER #1 (OF 4) (ANTARTIC) – Prices are averaging around $10 shipped for the standard cover.
LAST WEEK RECAP
FLASH #38 MATTINA “B” VARIANT (DC) – Watching the “B” variants each week is always interesting. Some hold over really well, some go up and some drop. Unfortunately, this is the latter. With that said, it dropped to a steady $4.50 + shipping. I guess a $1.51 (less tax) is still profit. The “B” variant game is only for the patient.
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #22 MAHNKE “B” VARIANT (DC) – Case in point, here’s a book that was warm last week, selling for $7 shipped. It has since jumped to $13 shipped and there are only 3 copies currently listed. The best “B” variants are the ones people aren’t paying attention to (lower orders and print runs help too).
PHOENIX RESURRECTION RETURN JEAN GREY #3 HANS 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) – This is still holding to its $25 shipped market value.
ROCKOS MODERN LIFE #2 SUBSCRIPTION MERCADO VARIANT (BOOM!) – Here’s another holdover at $8 shipped.
ROSE #7 LOOPYDAVE COVER “B” VARIANT (IMAGE) – I mentioned last week that this was trending downwards to $15 shipped. It dropped a little more then that to $12 shipped. Honestly, that’s still decent.
SUPERGIRL #17 ARTGERM VARIANT (DC) – Yep, another hold at $7 shipped. The #12 & #13 of Artgerm’s covers are still doing the best. Retailers are ALL over these by now.
STABBITY BUNNY #1 (SCOUT) – AND another hold at $12 for the standard cover. When I wrote this last week, I completely missed the “white label” variant, which sells for $30-40 shipped. 3 copies of the original self-published 5 issue series is selling for $130. A full set sold for for an insane $1925! Apparently, issue #5 is impossible to find and is thought to be limited to 100 copies.
TRUMPS TITANS VS MARK ZUCKERBERG #1 (KEENSPOT) – Since I wrote on this last week, there have been only 3 sales between all the available covers. The most recent sale was a set of the Zuckerberg cover and the Fake News variant for $10.50 shipped.
AQUAMAN #32 MIDDLETON “B” VARIANT (DC) – Selling for $7-$8 shipped makes another big $1 profit book.
BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #2 2ND PRINT (DC) – This did see some movement in price and hit a high of $11 shipped. It has since rested to about $8 shipped.
GO WEST #1 (of 3) (ALTERNA COMICS) – While there are copies available for cover price, it’s worth noting that one copy sold for as high as $8. While that sounds unimpressive, keep in mind that the cover price is only $1.50. The story sounds interesting and the cover is cool. The only downside is that it’s only a 3 issue series. I would still recommend grabbing a copy if you see one.
SUPER SONS #12 NGUYEN “B” VARIANT (DC) – So, yes, another $1 profit “B” variant, selling at $8 shipped. I really like how this connects with the #11 variant. I hope we get a convention foil variant with these two covers connected. For now, I'll just glue them together.
BELLE BEAST HUNTER #1 (OF 6) (ZENESCOPE) – There’s a HALO cosplay variant for this for all you Z-Scopers out there.
FURTHER ADV OF NICK WILSON #1 (OF 5) (IMAGE) – There was some attention on this one. However, both covers are selling for less then cover price.
PACIFIC RIM AFTERMATH #1 (OF 6) (LEGENDARY)
ROBYN HOOD THE CURSE #1 (OF 6) (ZENESCOPE) – There is a limited to 75 copies “naughty” variant that sells for $115 and is “New Years” themed. While that sounds like some form of dirty code, it literally has two champagne glasses and festive holly in the background. I just report these books people.
TALES OF ROGUES #1 (OF 6) (AMIGO)
