The Weekend After Wednesday for 4/1/18 (late edition)


Want to know which books from Wednesday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Weekend After” (late edition) 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, 3/28/18. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

 

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25 (BOOM) –Wow, Power Rangers are bringing the heat this week.  I completely missed out on these.  They all seem to be selling really well.  I don’t recommend holding these though.  Don’t be caught holding copies, Power Ranger books all seem to fall hard.  Here’s the current market rundown:

Wondercon: $130

1:25 Chase:  $75

Green Ranger: $55

Red Ranger: $30

Sealed blind bag:  $20

Black Ranger: $20

Blue Ranger: $15

Pink Ranger: $10

Ramos Unlocked: $10

Yellow Ranger: $8

Subscription: $8

MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #29 (MARVEL)– Well, this book disappeared quickly this week.  It’s been hovering at a steady $10-$14 shipped.  I’m not sure exactly why this is commanding a higher price.  Ebay sellers are listing this as the “New Fantastic Four”.  However, with the recent FF news, we know that’s not true (not to mention that this “team” has already been working together in previous issues).  It could just simply be hard to find due to the super low print run.

SHADOWMAN (2018) #1 GLOW IN THE DARK 1:250 VARIANT– Wow, a 1:250 incentive is a big ask for most retailers.  That is exactly why this book is hot right now.  It’s easily selling for $300+ (hit $365 on Thursday).  I’m actually surprised that it’s ONLY $300, especially when 1:50’s can sometimes hit that.  And let's be honest, glow in the dark stuff is awesome.  This should be a fun book to watch.

WARM

 

 

JOHNNY BLAZE: GHOST RIDER #1 AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. VARIANT (MARVEL) – I'm a little surprised by this one.  AOS covers have historically performed terrible on the after market.  This one is actually okay at $10 shipped.  But don't rush out quite yet to pick one up.  There are a lot listed and they're just sitting.  Hence, why it's warm.

SAGA #50 (IMAGE)– The  “Artist Appreciation” virgin variant is doing decently at about $7-10 shipped, which is cover price to double cover price.  It keeps flip-flopping between those two price points.  This is a pretty monumental issue for Saga, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a convention variant at some point for this particular issue.

COOL

 

ADVENTURE TIME BMO BONANZA #1 (BOOM)

BATTLECATS #1 (OF 5) (MAD CACE) – Battlecats Hoooooooooo!

BREATHLESS #1 (BLACK MASK)

CAVEWOMAN BATTLE ANKHAS BROOD #1 (AMRYL)

CROW MEMENTO MORI #1 (IDW)– It’s great to see The Crow back! However, I’m a little disappointed with these covers.

CYBER FORCE #1 (IMAGE)

DAREDEVIL #600 (MARVEL)– The 1:50 Alex Ross variant is selling for $40 shipped.  For comparison, the easier to obtain standard Granov store variant (limited to 3000 copies) sells for $49.  I don’t know exactly why Ross’s demand is relatively low.  He’s clearly amazing and has a long list of some of the most iconic modern covers.  Maybe it feels too similar or just too “realistic”…. I’m not sure.  With that said, it really goes to show you how Marvel is doing something wrong with creating a variant that everyone HAS to have.  I’m generally not a fan of store variants, specifically due to all the various trade dressings, but they definitely blow the retailer incentives out of the water in terms of awesome art.

DARK NIGHTS METAL #6 (DC) – Nothing’s really selling for over cover.  The store variants are stealing all the heat. 

FACTORY #1 (TITAN)

GI JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO #250 (IDW)– The Kirkman store variants look awesome.

GOTHAM CITY GARAGE #12 (DC)– I was really hoping for an awesome cover for this last issue.  This one was a bit disappointing.

KISS: ARMY OF DARKNESS #2 MONTES VIRGIN VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – Selling at ratio. 

MOTHER PANIC GOTHAM A D #1  (DC)

PEEK A BOO #1 (OF 5) (ZENESCOPE)– With a Zenescope book titled PEEK A BOO, your mind easily goes straight to the gutter.   However, it appears this is a legit horror book.

PUSSYCATS END OF EVERYTHING #1 (E-COMIX)

SHEENA #7 (DYNAMITE)– The Dan Parent virgin variant is fun (I love his Die Kitty Die covers).

SINK #5 (OF 5) (COMIX TRIBE)– Sink started strong and continued to show solid sales throughout the past 4 issues.  Now that we’re at the end, it all seems to be coming down in price.

STABBITY BUNNY #3 (SCOUT)– Stabbity #3 is selling okay.  This 3rdissue did see some prices for $10 shipped.  However, cheaper copies are available under cover price. 

TRUE BELIEVERS VENOM HOMECOMING #1 & AGENT OF VENOM (MARVEL)– $1

WORLDS FINITE CEREBUS #1 (OF 1) (AARDVARK VANAHEIM)

  • Good stuff! I too missed out on the Power Ranger action. I went to 4 LCS’s between 2 cities and nobody ordered any in. Probably for the best, the gambler in me would probably buy them all looking for the 1:25..lol!

    This is like my weekly speculation report card. Great post as always.

    Can’t believe the power rangers books are commanding such a high price. I was able to put together a helmet set for $45 but it was for pc. They look great next to the other helmet variants, Wish i picked up extras.

    Moon girl 29 is the first app of that fantastic four team(it was fantastic 3 until a familiar character was brought back to this dimension to make 4 at the end of this issue. Although i think its the momentum of issue 28 driving the price because as you stated we are getting a real F4 team soon so this one is probably going to be gone very soon.

  • Everyone I’ve ever talked to, loves Alex ross….yet as you said, his stuff is rarely hot. Seriously I wish someone could give an explanation. Makes no sense whatsoever…

  • re backup: 2 words for you man… No Boobs.

    Ross is a great artist and does great covers and interior art however he is not known for oversexualizing his female characters and for that his covers rarely generate heat.

    If Ross made a sexy Blackcat or Emma frost cover and by that mean both Felicia and Emma with big boobs in an impossible position showing a bouncy ass and huge tittie cracks, those books would probably explode!

    Look at JSC or AH… do any of their covers featuring dudes go for anything? Aside from ASM 688 which is a ghost not really, and I don’t even think AH draws dudes lol.

    It’s sad but it’s the reality of things.

  • A lot of people got cought off guard with Power rangers, hence the increased prices. Add to that the fact that it is a key issue and one that changes the status quo of the Rangers and people get interested.

    The variants are pretty hard to come by as well. Especially the Green Ranger variant. (for good reason… won’t spoil it for people)

  • accustomfigures

    Nice rundown, Matt.

  • Always appreciate your weekly rundowns Matt. Great stuff as always 🔥

  • Well done sir… well done.

  • As a ranger fan I’ve been collecting these Montes covers from the start and they look amazing displayed. Although I think you did miss one in the list of #25 covers. As far as Montes helmet covers goes, there’s the 6 rangers, then a crystal cover and a saba cover. I think you might be missing one
