The Weekend After Wednesday for 3/17/18
Want to know which books from Wednesday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Weekend 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, 3/14/18. They could still be at your shop.
AVENGERS #684 (MARVEL) – Several key events like the return of the Hulk, the origins of Voyager and Iron Red Hulk are helping drive this to a $9-$10 shipped book.
DUCKTALES #7 1:10 BENTINA BEAKLEY VARIANT (IDW) – These are getting super hard to find. Hence, this variant is selling for $30 + shipping. People need their sets and will pay to get it.
SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #23 BEN OLIVER “ZOMBIE” VARIANT (DC) – Zombie variants are hot again (and yes, I realize there are different Monsters on this cover). First Popeye and now Scooby Doo. This is selling for a solid $10-$15 shipped. I have a hard time believing this will hold with 50+ copies listed.
LAST WEEK RECAP
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #795 2ND PRINT (MARVEL) – This 2nd print is still holding at $10 shipped. Word is that Red Goblin may not be Norman Osborn. If that’s true, what does that mean for all issues from #795 to #797?
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #797 (MARVEL) – #797 has dropped a tad across all books: 1:500 @ $412, Thor @ $6, Design variant @ $18, Kuder Young Guns @ $18 & Standard @ $5.
CALL OF THE SUICIDE FOREST #2 (OF 5) (AMIGO) – The standard cover saw a nice bump up to $9 shipped. What’s interesting is that the variant hasn’t seen a single listing since the one copy that sold last week for $25. If you have one, I highly recommend listing it.
OBLIVION SONG #1 COLLECTOR’S SET (IMAGE) – The limited to 1000 Statue Collector’s has dropped from $400 to $370. The standard issue is selling steadily, it’s just stuck at cover price. The Collector’s set Chromium variant hasn’t shown up by itself all week.
RICK & MORTY PRESENTS THE VINDICATORS #1 (ONI) – Both cover A and B have dipped from $14 to $10 shipped. This isn’t a huge drop. However, the focus has shifted from the standard cover to the ECCC variant (limited to 500 copies). Last week, this variant was selling at $75 and has jumped to $150. 9.8’s sold for $350 & $360. The C2E2 variants (also limited to 500 copies) dropping next week are primed to hit $100 before the convention even starts. These variants will most likely water down the ECCC variant a bit, but it will still sell for over $100. Rick & Morty fans love paying for these.
SPIDER KING #1 1:10 SKOTTIE YOUNG VARIANT (IDW) – This was an easy winner last week with a steady $30 market price… but then it just stopped selling. There hasn’t been a single sale for this variant in 5 days. Copies are available for $25 (with best offer) and ready to drop. It will most likely settle to $15.
TRUE BELIEVERS VENOM VS SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL) – At $1, I’m really surprised there aren’t more then the 100+ copies currently listed. Prices have dropped a bit to $2.50, with some higher sales here and there. Making that $1 profit (after fees) seems like a massive grind and is reserved for the patient.
INFINITY COUNTDOWN ADAM WARLOCK #1 2ND (MARVEL) – There aren’t many of these currently listed. Recent sales have been for $9-$10 shipped. If Warlock pops up in Infinity Wars, this could see some interest.
ACTION COMICS #999 (DC)
BARBARELLA #4 (DYNAMITE) – The Hans 1:30 Variant was on the radar for most speculators. It’s a strange variant that has polarizing opinions. Regardless, it has mostly been selling for $20 but is available on eBay for $15 and is sitting at that price. The rest of the variants aren’t doing any better.
BETROTHED #1 (AFTERSHOCK)
COME INTO ME #1 (BLACK MASK)
DETECTIVE COMICS #976 (DC)
DRY COUNTY #1 (IMAGE)
ENCOUNTER #1 (LION FORGE)
ETERNITY GIRL #1 (OF 6) (DC)
GHOSTBUSTERS CROSSING OVER #1 (IDW)
GOTHAM CITY GARAGE #11 (DC) – Cool Lobo cover and has a super low print.
INFIDEL #1 (OF 5) (IMAGE)
JUSTICE LEAGUE #26 MATTINA VARIANT (DC) – Great cover that’s selling for cover.
KICK-ASS #1 2ND PTG (IMAGE)
NEIL GAIMAN AMERICAN GODS MY AINSEL #1 (DARK HORSE)
NEW MUTANTS DEAD SOULS #1 (OF 6) (MARVEL) – Campbell & Brooks exclusive variant sets will be the winners for this title. I’m a bigger fan of Brooks, but the Campbell D “Demon” Magik is awesome. Currently, the Brooks full set is $120 and Campbell is $240 for a signed set.
ROSE #9 CVR B LOOPYDAVE (IMAGE) – There was one sale at $10 shipped, however they are available for sale at $4 + shipping.
SEA OF THIEVES #1 (TITAN)
SECRET WEAPONS OWENS STORY #0 1:20 VARIANT (VALIANT) – There was one pre-sale from over a month ago at $30. There’s one international copy listed at $34. That’s it. No other listings or sales. It’s hard to tell what this variant wants to do.
STARGATE ATLANTIS SINGULARITY #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)
STAR WARS THRAWN #2 (MARVEL)
SUBSPECIES #1 (ACTION LAB)
SUPERGIRL #19 (DC) – Selling for under cover. The Wondercon foil variant is the way to go. It’s pre-selling for $30 shipped.
VAMPIRONICA #1 (ARCHIE) – The variants aren’t selling for much, however I love Stadium Comic’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 101 tribute cover. It costs $20+shipping on their site and sells for $30 shipped on eBay. So, it’s a wash.
