Variant Heat Check for 5/9/18



Saga #1 Staples RRP Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

The Saga RRP is a modern grail that ages like fine wine. With no media news in sight, it’s very interesting to see this book keep going up. A raw copy almost hit $1400, while the last 3 9.8 sales were $2250, $2500 and $3000. Fiona Staples may be one of the most underrated artists out there.


Wasted Space #1 1:10 Gooden Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Vault is sidestepping the normal channels of distribution by offering retailers a special incentive variant of Wasted Space. For every 10 copies retailers ordered, they could receive 1 variant if they submitted a form through the Vault website. We’ll see if this catches on for other indy books, but it’s currently getting $60.


X-Men #205 Campbell Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

Hope Summers is coming! Maybe. Who knows, but this book is a solid $100 raw and $275 9.8. X-23 is also on the cover, which doesn’t hurt either. The only thing I really know is it’s selling like hot cakes.


New Mutants #25 1:25 Adams Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

With the news of the New Mutants movie getting pushed back a year, it sure feels like it may never see the light of day. This is one of my favorite Adams variant, and is a steady $200 even with all the delays to the movie.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.
