The Weekend After Wednesday for 6/2/2018
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, 5/30/18. They could still be at your shop.
AQUAMAN JABBERJAW SPECIAL #1 MIDDLETON “B” VARIANT (DC) – This is a great cover. It’s going for $13 to $14. Middleton is finally getting his due.
MAZSCARA #1 (RED ANVIL) – You probably don’t know much about this title nor that it’s selling for $16 shipped ($6.99 cover price). The plotline is “After committing suicide, Victoria Starfield is saved by her animal spirit only to be resurrected as code name Mazscara, to protect her fans and any child in Los Angeles targeted by the evil Tung. With every life she saves, she brings herself closer to her own salvation.” It sounds like an interesting twist on THE CROW. I might just have to hunt this down.
UNCLE SCROOGE #34 COVER B BARKS VARIANT (IDW) – Prices for the “B” variant (featuring re-used Carl Barks artwork) have been bouncing around from $14 to the most recent sale of $30. Just to compare, the much harder to find 1:10 RI variant is only selling for $13 shipped. Amazing what a great cover can do. I really wish I hadn’t slept on this.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
BATGIRL #23 MIDDLETON “B” VARIANT (DC) – Phew, I thankfully found one copy of this last weekend. Like most of you, I love it and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. This book had a huge wave of copies hit eBay over the week and it not only survived but also already started increasing in value. If you look at the copies sold, WELL over 300 copies of this book has sold. It’s just starting to dry up as only 35(ish) copies are currently listed. Yes, the copies that people ordered through the online shops are starting to come in. Yes, it will most likely start a 2ndwave. Don’t worry, it will survive. It’s currently sitting at $35 shipped. I can see this hitting $50 by the end of June. (Tip: Older Middleton variants are starting to see some spikes. Supergirl #50 1:10 Variant (2010) is selling for $30 lately. Wonder Woman #30 1:10 (2009) is also doing well)
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #600 ROSS VARIANT(S) (MARVEL) – Amazingly, the Alex Ross 1:50 variant is still holding at $50 shipped. However, the 1:100 virgin Ross variant has dropped to about $75 shipped.
KONG OF SKULL ISLAND 2018 SPECIAL #1 1:10 VARIANT (BOOM!) – This is doing okay at $14/$15 shipped, which is ratio plus shipping.
PINK PANTHER 55TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL RETRO ANIMATION VARIANT #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY) – With a $9.99 cover print, this retro variant hasn’t been selling quickly. The most recent sale was for $34 shipped on 6/1. However, there are several NM copies available for $19+shipping.
SKYWARD #1 JOCK 2NDPRINT (IMAGE)– These 2ndprints were pretty much nowhere last week, including eBay. It’s currently selling for $8 to $10 shipped.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
NAMWOLF #2 (ALBATROSS) – We had a very quiet comic week one year ago. This Mike Mignola variant was “hot” and selling for $13 plus shipping. The drop to it’s current sales of $6 to $10 shipped isn’t bad. Though, it’s worth noting that copies don’t sell very frequently and most are just sitting while sellers still try to get last year’s price.
SPAWN SILVER FOIL RETAILER THANK YOU VARIANT – This “one per store” thank you variant was the hot book to get last year. It sold from $90 to $144. It’s currently selling for $100, although no copies are currently listed under $175. Surprisingly, this only sells for $150 in a CGC 9.8. Regardless, this is a book that has actually held its value pretty well.
BLACKWOOD #1 (OF 4) (DARK HORSE) – Cover B was selling for $7 and the 2-cover set sold for $15. They appear to have settling back to cover price… but haven’t officially done so.
MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #6 PAREL VARIANT (MARVEL) – I love Parel. His Thing as Deadpool is interesting, yet only selling for $9 shipped.
STAR WARS LANDO DOUBLE OR NOTHING #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – The 1:25 Quinones is doing the best out of the five different covers. It’s selling for $22 to $29. It does show signs of increasing. This contains the first comic appearance of L3-37.
X-MEN RED ANNUAL #1 JOHNSON 1:50 VARIANT – While this is technically COOL, it’s worth noting how it jumped up from $15 a couple of days ago to its current $44 price value. The current copies listed have active auctions and seem to be trending towards $50. While it’s a good cover, I don’t know if it can pass $50 nor stay there for too long.
2021 LOST CHILDREN #1 (OF 2) (TITAN)
