The Weekend After Wednesday for 4/28/2018

Want to know which books from yesterday’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, 4/25/18. They could still be at your shop.



AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #798 2NDPRINT (MARVEL) –I was surprised to see that this is selling for about $12 shipped. There aren’t even that many copies listed.  Seeing how few copies there are right now, this could have some legs.

EXILES #2 RODRIGUEZ 1:10 VARIANT (MARVEL) – I can’t say I love this cover.  However, it is doing well in the after market and drying up.  It’s selling for $20 shipped.  It was apparently super difficult to find in store, which has helped its price. Valkyrie from THOR: RAGNAROK makes her first appearance in comic form (if you don't count her design variant for issue #1).  If she crosses over into Marvel 616 comics, this could see some decent spikes in price.

LADY DEATH UNHOLY RUIN #1 MENDOZA 1:10 VARIANT (COFFIN COMICS)– While this sketch 1:10 did see a pre-sale as high as $64, the current market price of $19 shipped for a 1:10 isn’t bad.  This title has a lot a various variant covers (conventions, kickstarters, etc.), so it’s hard to tell what actually came out as an in-store variant.  The Holo Foil Creepy Crawler C2E2 Edition is doing the best at $185.

MARVEL RISING #0 (MARVEL) – This free promotional comic for Marvel’s upcoming animated movie/show contains the first appearance of Ember Quad.  It’s selling for $10 shipped and there’s only 1 copy listed (US).  If you have a store that has a stack of copies, it doesn’t hurt to grab a few.  You can’t beat the price. 

MEGA MAN MASTERMIX #2 1:10 RI HUANG HOMAGE VARIANT (UDON) – This is absolutely my favorite cover of the week (for obvious reasons if you look at my avatar).  I honestly didn’t care if this variant got hot.  I just wanted it.  Apparently, others share my love for the Blue Bomber.  Prices for this have been all over the place.  It has sold for $10, $20, $25 & $60 all in the last two days, and not in order.  Copies are definitely drying up.  Sellers are just throwing these on eBay at these random prices.  Those cheaper copies have sold almost instantly.  I don’t know what the longevity of this variant is, but for now, it shall have a permanent home in my PC.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #4 HESSE 1:25 VARIANT (IDW) – These 1:25 variants quickly overtook the 1:100 as the sought after covers for this series. This cover is selling for $40 shipped. The 1:10 Fourdraine cover is selling at ratio.


ACTION COMICS #1000 (DC) – The Jim Lee Tour Variant is still selling the best between $70 to $103.

BATMAN #45 JIM LEE “B” VIRGIN VARIANT (DC) – With plenty of copies hitting eBay, this dipped a bit to $9 shipped. 

CABLE #156 1:25 OLIVETTI VARIANT (MARVEL) – This is still selling for a consistent $35 to $40 shipped.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #26 1:25 CARLOS VILLA VARIANT (BOOM) – After seeing sales bounce around $50 last week, that’s where all sales stopped.  The last $50 copy sold on 4/19.  The most recent copy sold for $36 shipped (UK).  Sellers seem to be holding out for those high sales.  It's ready for a steep drop.

*NEW* STAR TREK DISCOVERY SUCCESSION #1 1:25 VARIANT (IDW) – Here’s another hot variant from last week that has dropped a bit. After a height of $40, it has settled back down to $25.

WWE #16 ALEXA BLISS 1:15 WERNECK VIRGIN VARIANT (BOOM) – This is selling even better than last week at $50 to $60. It looks primed to go even higher as there’s only one copy left on eBay, listed at $100 shipped.  It’ll probably get it.



BITCOIN COMIC HANDBOOK (DEVIL’S DUE) – A Bitcoin comic… okay… enjoy cryptocurrency kids!  With a $5.99 price tag, this has been seeing multiple sales of $15 shipped. However, there are plenty of copies also selling for cover price (as did the most recent copy).  There are only 3 copies listed, so I can see this jumping up in value a “bit”. 



ALIENS DUST TO DUST #1 (OF 4) (DARK HORSE) – The D’Anda variant is absolutely awesome.   







HUNT FOR WOLVERINE #1 (MARVEL)– The 1:50 McNiven sketch variant is seeing some sales at ratio and then some sales at half.  You can buy one for $25 right now.  The rest of the variants are all just selling half of ratio.

JEEPERS CREEPERS #1 (DYNAMITE)– Man, the 1:20 Kewber Baal cover is super creepy (selling for $10 shipped). 

LOCKJAW #3 (MARVEL) – I added this simply because I love the Spider-Ham Amazing Fantasy 15 cover swipe.  It’s such a fun cover.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25 2NDPRINT (BOOM) – You never know what a 2ndprint will do after a hot 1stprint skyrockets in value.  There doesn’t appear to be much demand for this printing right now.   



THANOS #13 & #14 4THPRINT (MARVEL)– The printings keep coming

    Where does the IDW “Danger Girl : Twenty Years” release rank?

    • Matt DeVoe

      I didn’t include it as I think of it as a trade paperback. I know there are variants, but the store exclusives are the ones doing best. The Foil, which I think was in store, is selling for $50. The b&w isn’t really doing anything.

  • Horrific

    Great write up! Nice seeing Jeppers Creepers got a mention. I’m also super happy about Action Comics 1000 Lee Tour Variant is going up in value. Still wondering what the ceiling will be on it

    Sorry Action Comics 1000 80s era variant you just lost your bag/board to Marvel Raising… definitely need some boards and bags too but mostly boards have a few bags left but I hate bagging without a board. That Action is square and will be find on the stack of trades till I get boards 😉

    I’ve been grabbing all of the ASM 2nd prints. I’m really digging the art they’re using for the covers.

  • Earlybird

    Grabbed 2 copies of Exiles #2 Rodriguez Variant its very hard to find, only seen 1 copy on EBay, will hold and see what happens on this one,
    Great work yet again Matt thx 👌

  • Lloyd Brothers

    What’s going on with the Mega Man Mastermix? All the copies on the bay are showing “1:10” The copies without the UPC are the 1:20. The 1:10 have the UPC. I just don’t understand people buying up 1:10’s at 1:20 prices? Is there a print run difference? I am confused.

    • Lloyd Brothers

      I get it now. Cover on the front and back had me thinking there were 2 different copies. Just the 1:10. Nice low print run though. I apologize for my convoluted thoughts.
