The Weekend After Wednesday for 5/5/18
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, 5/2/18. They could still be at your shop.
VENOMIZED #5 SANDOVAL 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) – It’s not very often when a brand new 1:25 jumps to the height that this variant is at right now. At $80 (and climbing) it’s hard to say where this will stop.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #798 2NDPRINT (MARVEL) – This 2ndprint is still holding at $12 shipped despite a small flood of copies hitting eBay.
EXILES #2 RODRIGUEZ 1:10 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Sales have slowed for this variant. You can buy a copy for $15, yet none have actually sold since May 1st.
LADY DEATH UNHOLY RUIN #1 MENDOZA 1:10 VARIANT (COFFIN COMICS) – Mendoza’s LADY DEATH sketch cover has almost dried up. There’s only one copy left for $40. It will most likely get it.
MARVEL RISING #0 (MARVEL) – For a free promotional comic, there really aren’t as many copies listed as you would think. However, sales have almost stopped, with the exception of a few multiple copy lots selling for $20-$30. With the first appearance of Ember Quad, this is still worth holding.
MEGA MAN MASTERMIX #2 1:10 RI HUANG HOMAGE VARIANT (UDON) – Cheap copies are officially gone. Recent copies have sold for $30. You can currently buy a copy for $40.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #4 HESSE 1:25 VARIANT (IDW) – Sonic can’t keep up the speed to move this forward. It’s dropping. Recent sales were for $30.
CODA #1 (OF 12) 1:25 STOKELY VIRGIN VARIANT (BOOM)– This virgin variant is selling for ratio and even a little more in recent sales.
RED SONJA TARZAN #1 ADAM HUGHES 1:50 VIRGIN VARIANT (DYNAMITE)– After everyone commented that this version of Red Sonja looks like Peggy Bundy, it’s really hard to not see that. Recent sales have been fairly warm at $45 & $54. However, copies are drying up on eBay and one auction is already passing ratio with 4 days left. Never underestimate a Hughes cover nor his fan base.
ACTION COMICS SPECIAL #1 (DC)
ALIEN TOILET MONSTERS #1 (OMNIMORPHIC) – I can’t tell you how many people reached out to me asking about this title. It has a September 2017 date and has had plenty of sales over the past 6 months. It’s confusing why it was released this week. There’s also a Nerd Block variant of the b cover (which has a Nerd Block logo at the top) that’s doing the best. Regardless, I heard so much about this book that I ordered a copy.
AVENGERS #1 (MARVEL)– With such a big print run and numerous variants, there’s really no surprise to why these variants are only selling for about half of ratio. You can get the Ribic 1:50 variant for $15. The 1:100 is available for $50, though it should drop even more.
BATMAN #46 (DC)
CYBER SPECTRE #1 (SCOUT)
DEATH OR GLORY #1 (IMAGE)– Remender is awesome. Unfortunately, these are only selling for cover right now.
DEATHSTROKE #31 (DC)– I’m loving these virgin-ish variants.
HARLEY LOVES JOKER #1 (OF 2) (DC)
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE WEAPON LOST #1 (OF 4) (MARVEL)– The Nauck “Where’s Wolverine” cover is pretty cool.
JASMINE CROWN OF KINGS #1 (ZENESCOPE)
MIKE WOLFERS GALLERY OF MONSTERS #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)
NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS ZEROS JOURNEY #1 (TOKYO POP)– I’m actually surprised that these aren’t moving at all. NIGHTMARE fans buy everything.
SHERLOCK HOLMES VANISHING MAN #1 (DYNAMITE)
SPAWN #285 (IMAGE)– When I saw these on my LCS’s shelf, I got really excited to see the half blank copy as I though I found an error copy. I then realized that it was just another variant. Regardless, these are awesome covers despite only selling for cover.
STAR TREK TNG THROUGH THE MIRROR #1 1:100 VARIANT (IDW)– On Wednesday, Midtown was selling this 1:100 for $17.99. That seemed like a great deal when one copy sold for $70. Then, as quickly as it shot up, it dropped all the way down to $19.99. Ouch.
TANK GIRL FULL COLOR CLASSICS 1988-1989 #1 (TITAN)
YOU ARE DEADPOOL #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL)
