The Weekend After Wednesday for 7/28/18
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, 7/25/18. They could still be at your shop.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2 1:25 CAMPBELL VARIANT (MARVEL) – Campbell books tend to be overpriced in stores. If you spent more then ratio, then this might not be hot for you. Currently, this is selling for $35 to $40.
BARBARELLA #8 NATALIE SANDERS VARIANT (DYNAMITE) –I’m really surprised that this variant hasn’t been flooded on eBay. Copies have been selling between $12 to $20 shipped. Sanders has a growing fan base, so this should do well.
INFINITY WARS PRIME #1 HILDEBRANDT 1:25 VARIANT– This is easily the hottest NEW (*see Venom #4) book of the week. It’s currently selling for $65 after dropping from a height of $119. I’m wary of that price holding. Hopefully the next issue will help bring some clarity to who Requiem is. Is this a new character or one we already know? Dependent of that info, this book could skyrocket or drop like a rock.
TEEN TITANS #20 1:25 JIMENEZ DESIGN VARIANT (DC) – For a highly anticipated variant, $40-$50 is a great price on this 1:25. Surprisingly, copies are starting to thin out on eBay and prices are trending upwards.
VENOM #4 (MARVEL) – This book caused quite the market boost for Thor: God of Thunder #2 and #6. God of Thunder #2 Acuna 1:50 Variant just went nuts (see Ben’s Top 10 this week) thanks to references made in this issue. Venom #4’s prices have greatly varied. The most recent copy sold for cover price. However, prices have been ranging between $10 to $20.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
CABLE #159 1:25 ANACLETO VARIANT (MARVEL) – This had a drop from $75 last week to $55 to $64 this week. What’s interesting is that the last sale for this was 3 days ago on the 25th. When books sit, eventually a seller will accept a lower offer and then the rest will follow.
LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 ARTGERM 1:200 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Here’s another variant that averaged around $200 to $240 last week. It’s currently holding at $225. Similar to Cable, sales have stopped and are now just sitting.
NANCY IN HELL #1 (OF 4) (AMIGO) – The 1:10 Olmos variant is still selling well at $15 shipped.
SPIDER-GWEN #34 (MARVEL) – This was warm last week when it was barely moving outside of cover price. It’s now selling for $10.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
BATGIRL #13 MIDDLETON B VARIANT (DC) – You would think that with all the fervor around Middleton, that this variant from last year would start increasing in value. It’s selling for the same amount, $8.
SAVAGE DRAGON #225 25TH ANNIVERSARY XXX KRASH VARIANT (IMAGE) – This super scandalous variant had a heavy buy in price of $11.99. Sales were hitting $25. I was surprised to see that this has held that value at $25.
SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #2 1:15 SCOTTIE YOUNG BABY NUDE VARIANT (IMAGE)– Last year the 1:15 Young variant was selling at $35 shipped. This has almost disappeared from eBay and therefore hasn’t seen a sale in quite a while.
STREET FIGHTER SWIMSUIT SPECIAL 2017 MORRIGAN “VAMPIRELLA HOMAGE” 1:10 VARIANT (UDON) – While this homage sold for $20-25 shipped last year, it’s now selling for $10 shipped.
MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #33 (MARVEL) – One copy sold for $12.99, so now all sellers are holding at that price and none are moving. It’ll come down, but probably at least double cover price.
ACTION COMICS #1001 (DC) – 1:100 variants are struggling lately and this is no exception, the 1:100 is selling for $35.
DETECTIVE COMICS #985 (DC)– This isn’t selling for anything, but MAN I love this cover. Brooks is putting out some of the best Batman covers of late.
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1 CAPULLO 1:50 B&W VARIANT (DC) – Despite some buzz, this is only selling for $40.
MR AND MRS X #1 (MARVEL) – The Campbell variants are selling for under ratio. The 1:100 is selling for $66 and the 1:50 is selling for $45.
WONDER WOMAN #51 (DC) – LOVE this Artgerm cover.
X-23 #2 RAHZZAH 1:25 VARIANT – Selling for $20
