The Weekend After Wednesday for 5/19/18


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, 5/16/18. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

 

WALK THROUGH HELL #1 COVER B “BLACK” VARIANT (AFTERSHOCK)– This was a slow week and only one hot book to show for it.  This B variant is selling well between $13 to $17 shipped. This price should hold as Garth Ennis has a pretty solid fan base.  Don’t overlook the limited to 200 copies Templesmith variant.  That’s selling for about the same amount.

LAST WEEK UPDATE

EXILES #3 PUZZLE QUEST 1:10 PEGGY CARTER VARIANT (MARVEL) – I was really surprised last week to see this hit a height of $50.  It has since settled to $35.  It’s showing a few signs of dropping more as well.  It should level out at $25. That’s still great for a 1:10 Marvel variant.

SCOOBY APOCALYPSE #25 (DC) – This impossible to find issue fell from a height of $19 to roughly $10 shipped.  Cover B is favored over cover A by $1. Sets of both cover A & B dropped even harder to $12.

WWE #17 ASUKA 1:15 VIRGIN VARIANT (BOOM) – This went from an iffy hot book last week to a full-blown scorcher this week.  This is a steady $100 bill right now.  So…. retailers, 15 copies probably cost about $40 to order from diamond. Seems like a no brainer to try to start getting these.

HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR

GOD COUNTRY #5 SPAWN VARIANT (IMAGE) – Both the color and B&W covers were each selling for about $10.  Currently you can find it at cover price.

GOLD DIGGER #242 MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE HOMAGE (ANTARCTIC PRESS) – Remember when this was selling for $40 last year? The going price now is $15 shipped.

STREET FIGHTER VS DARKSTALKERS #1 (OF 8) ARTGERM 1:20 VARIANT (UDON) – This was easily the hottest book of the week this time last year with a sales height of $75.  It currently sells for $50 with only one copy currently listed.  That's still a solid price hold one year later.

ZOMBIE TRAMP #35 FISHER VARIANT(S) (ACTION LAB) –  Last year the standard cover was selling for $12 and $18 for the risqué.  Both covers are still selling for $12 to $15 today. Zombie Tramp books tend to either hold their prices or make big jumps in value.

WARM

 

WEAPON H #3 1:25 SMITH VARIANT (MARVEL) – On Wednesday, this variant was barely selling for $15 shipped.  It’s slowly been increasing over the past couple days. It’s currently selling for $25 to $27. I don’t think it’ll go much higher.

COOL

 

ALL NEW WOLVERINE #35 DEADPOOL VARIANT (MARVEL)

AQUAMAN #36 VARIANT (DC)

AVENGERS #2 1:100 MCGUINNESS VARIANT (MARVEL) – This variant is available for $40 and copies are just sitting.

BUBBA HO-TEP & COSMIC BLOOD-SUCKERS #1 (IDW)

CAVEWOMAN LYCAN RUN #1 (AMRYL) – While many of the covers for this title are NSFW, I love Connie Valentina’s variants.  I would love to see her do some covers for another publisher outside of Amryl. 

CROSSED PLUS 100 MIMIC #1 (AVATAR)

ETHER COPPER GOLEMS #1 (OF 5) (DARK HORSE)

FLAVOR #1 (IMAGE) – A futuristic apocalyptic society where chefs are the celebrities?  I’m in.

HUNT FOR WOLVERINE CLAWS OF KILLER #1 (OF 4) (MARVEL)

NEW CHALLENGERS #1 (OF 6) (DC)

  • Isola 2 Virgin Variant is pretty rare from last week and slowly heating up.

  • Awesome job as always Matt! This truly does go hand and hand with Stein’s piece too. Only other book I would mention is the Cable 157 1:25. Seems to be holding at ratio now. These have very low print runs in comparison for today’s books so this mini run of 1:25s including this one may be a great set to own.
