The Weekend After Wednesday for 7/14/18
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, 7/11/18. They could still be at your shop.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 BEHIND THE SCENES PROMO EDITION (MARVEL) – None of the covers are doing much for this new ASM #1. The B&W party variant is “meh” at $20. My shop has that listed for $79.99. What IS doing well is the FREE “Behind the Scenes” Promo edition. That’s selling between $6 to $12!!? That’s officially the hottest book for this new Spidey Release and you can't beat the price.
DIE DIE DIE “I’M DRUNK” VARIANT (IMAGE/SKYBOUND) – Kirkman’s surprise release caught everyone off guard. A full set of 10 covers is selling for $55. Of those 10 covers, the “I’M DRUNK” word bubble variant is selling the best at $22 shipped.
RELAY #1 (AFTERSHOCK) – Here’s a new Donny Cates book that kind of flew under the radar. Cover A is selling for $10 and the B&W virgin variants is selling for $25. Strangely, cover B is only selling for cover price.
TITANS #23 (DC) – Even without Crush, this has been selling for $10 to $15.
WONDER WOMAN #50 FRISON “B” VARIANT (DC)– This gorgeous Frison variant bounced around from cover price to $10 shipped. It currently is selling for $13 shipped.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
DEATH OF INHUMANS #1 (OF 5) 1:10 ANDREWS DESIGN VARIANT (MARVEL) – This VOX design variant is still holding at $20/$25. A 9.8 already showed up and sold for $135. Not too shabby.
NIGHTWING #46 OLIVER “B” VARIANT (DC) – This went UP a $1 or $2 this week. It’s now $13 shipped.
IMMORTAL HULK #2 ZAFFINO 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) – This dipped back down from $28 last week to $18 to $22 shipped.
UNNATURAL #1 (OF 12) MANARA VARIANT (IMAGE) – Prices dipped a lot to $9 shipped.
STAR WARS LAST JEDI ADAPTATION #4 REIS 1:25 VARIANT – The most recent copy ended in an auction for $60 shipped.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
NADA – THERE WERE NO HOT BOOKS THIS TIME LAST YEAR.
BLACK HOPS USA GI #1 (ANTARTIC WORLD) – Only two copies have sold all week: one for $3 and the other for $10. There are only two copies currently listed at $15 and $18.
FARMHAND #1 (IMAGE) – I’m surprised at how many store variants there are for this series. The main cover has been selling decently at $11 shipped. However, there are copies currently listed for cover price.
LITTLE GIRL #1 (OF 4) (DEVILS DUE) – This is moving back and forth between cover price and $10.
ZINNOBER #2 (SCOUT)– This book saw one sale at $30 shipped. However, the past couple sales sold at cover price. There are only two copies left at $20 each. So, I guess we’ll see how it goes the next week.
CASPER AND HOT STUFF #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)
CHAMPIONS #22 (MARVEL) – New Ironheart costume AND Totally Awesome Hulk renamed as BRAWN. Meh. Selling for cover price.
DETECTIVE COMICS #984 BROOKS “B” VARIANT (DC) – Man, I am loving Brooks’ Batman covers and this is no exception.
DISNEY PIXAR INCREDIBLES 2 #1 CRISIS MIDLIFE & STORIES (DARK HORSE)
DOCTOR WHO ROAD TO 13TH DR 10TH DR SPECIAL #1 (TITAN)
DUCKTALES #10 1:10 “GYRO” VARIANT (IDW)– It appears that these 1:10 variants are slipping in value. This 1:10 is selling for ratio, which is $10.
FLASH #50 (DC)
GRIMM FAIRY TALES PRESENTS 2018 COSPLAY SPECIAL #1 (ZENESCOPE)
IT CAME OUT ON A WEDNESDAY #1 (ALTERNA COMICS)
LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN THE TEMPEST #1 (IDW)
METAPHASE #1 (ALTERNA)
MIDNIGHT TASK FORCE #1 (MAD CAVE)
NU WAY #1 (ASPEN)
OUTPOST ZERO #1 (IMAGE/SKYBOUND)
RUINWORLD #1 (OF 5) (BOOM) – While this book is selling for cover price, I actually really like it. It’s a lot of fun. I initially thought that this series came from a Kickstarter campaign by creator Derek Laufman. However, it appears that he just self-published 400 copies of the one issue and it’s now NOWHERE to be found. While this is a kid’s book at first glance, it actually has a lot of promise. It feels very LEGEND OF ZELDA, but with animals. Which is not a bad thing. Don’t sleep on this series.
SHE COULD FLY #1 (DARK HORSE)
SUPERMAN #1 (DC) – Most of these covers are selling for a tad under cover. The David Mack variant has seen some decent sales around $9, but it can still be had for under cover. The B&W Reis 1:100 is selling for $40.
TRANSFORMERS UNICRON #1 (OF 6) (IDW) – There was a lot of chatter this week about these variants. They’re doing okay. The 1:50 has been selling for $40, with one recent sale at $50. The Stadium Comics Movie Homage RE Variant (500 copies) is doing better at $30/$35.
VOLTRON LEGENDARY DEFENDER VOL 3 #1 (LION FORGE)
X-23 #1(MARVEL) – I’m honestly really surprised that several of these variants aren’t doing better. I actually really like the Bartel 1:25, which is selling for $13 shipped. The 1:100 Choi Virgin Art Variant is only selling for $55 to $70. It's worth noting that the Rahzzah 1:25 for #2 is already pre-selling for $55 though.
