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.
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.
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.
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.
BATWOMAN #15 GRAMPA “B” VARIANT (DC)
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.
GARFIELD 2018 VACATION TIME BLUES #1 (BOOM) – I loved Garfield as a kid, now I just GET Garfield. I hate Mondays, love Lasagna and find my dog super annoying.
GREEN LANTERNS #47 PETERSON “B” VARIANT (DC) – I absolutely love this variant.
HUNT FOR WOLVERINE CLAWS OF KILLER #1 (OF 4) (MARVEL)
INFINITY COUNTDOWN DAREDEVIL #1 (MARVEL)
JAZZ LEGEND #1 (SCOUT) – This looked interesting to me, but I could not find a single copy anywhere.
MIGHTY MOE SZYSLAK #1 (BONGO)
MIGHTY THOR GATES OF VALHALLA #1 (OF 1) (MARVEL)
NEW CHALLENGERS #1 (OF 6) (DC)
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #27 (BOOM) – The 1:25 Villa Virgin variant is so close to selling for ratio. It sells for $22 to $24.
QUICKSILVER NO SURRENDER #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL)
ROT #1 (OF 3) (SOURCE POINT PRESS)
RUIN OF THIEVES BRIGANDS #1 (ACTION LAB)
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #1 3RD PRINT
