The Weekend After Wednesday for 8/4/18
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, 8/1/18. They could still be at your shop.
STAR WARS LAST JEDI ADAPTATION #5 (OF 6) 1:25 LOPEZ VARIANT (MARVEL) – When this book hit a height of $61 and then a 2nd sale for $50, I thought we had a hot book on our hands. Then it dropped to $20. I thought it was done… until it bounced back up to $38 shipped. I doubt that it’ll hold at this price… the cover isn't the best. But you never know. The Laura Dern variant for #4 is still holding at $50.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2 1:25 CAMPBELL VARIANT (MARVEL) – Still at $30/35. I know it’s not terribly original, but I actually like this cover.
BARBARELLA #8 NATALIE SANDERS VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – Another holdover at $12 to $15 shipped. There aren’t that many listed currently, so this price should actually go up a bit.
INFINITY WARS PRIME #1 HILDEBRANDT 1:25 VARIANT – I was very curious to see how this book would do after Requiem’s identity reveal. This sold as high as $119 last week and settled to $65 after the market flooded. It is worth noting that close to 133* copies of this (or more) variant sold last week on eBay. It was briskly moving. It's currently dropping to $40 to $45, but should stay at this price for a while.
MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #33 (MARVEL) – This book dropped to cover price really quickly. It has rebounded a bit today with a few sales at $8.
TEEN TITANS #20 1:25 JIMENEZ DESIGN VARIANT (DC) – Still going strong at $40 to $45. It yo-yoed from as low as $33 and as high as $52, however $40 seems to be the average. More than 89* copies of this sold in the past week. There’s no sign of this slowing.
VENOM #4 (MARVEL) – So, what camp are you in? Thor: God of Thunder #2 or #6? Regardless, this book has been selling furiously with over 138* copies sold in just the past week. $9 seems to be the going price and should see little jumps over the next couple weeks.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
GENERATIONS BANNER HULK & TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #1 (MARVEL) 1:50 ROSS VARIANT – At its height, a copy sold for $75 and then dropped to $28 and bounced back up to $50. Copies can now be purchased for $24.
GHOST STATION ZERO #1 (OF 4) CLOONAN VARIANT (IMAGE) – Cloonan’s variant sold for $7-$8 and can now be had for less than cover price.
ROBOTECH #1 ARTGERM VARIANT (TITAN) – This was selling for $7 and got knocked back down to cover thanks to the Boston Comic Con Foil hitting that same week. It’s still at cover price and the Boston comic con variant still does well at $38.
TMNT DIMENSION X #1 EASTMAN 1:20 VARIANT (IDW) – Last year, this was the hottest book of the week, selling for $100. It’s held up well as recent copies have sold for $60 to $85. There is only one copy currently listed and has proven itself to be a difficult book to find.
COSMIC GHOST RIDER #2 (OF 5) (MARVEL) 1:25 ZAFFINO VARIANT – This 1:25 is doing decently and selling between $20 to $30.
INFINITY WARS #1 (OF 6) (MARVEL) – So, premiere variants and one-per store variant are super random price wise. Some of you can find copies for cover price or you can buy one off Midtown for $250. Shops don’t seem to always pay close attention to market price. Current market is $40 to $45. Was this hot for you?
TMNT BEBOP ROCKSTEADY HIT THE ROAD #1 (OF 5) (IDW) – A 1:100 for a TMNT miniseries? That's rare. It’s selling for under ratio from $60 to $80. This has to be impossible to find. I wouldn’t be surprised if it jumps up next week.
VENOM #3 2ND PRINT (MARVEL) – Selling for $9 shipped. Seeing how hot the 1stprint is, I can only imagine that this 2ndprint has a far less print run.
DEATHSTROKE #34 “B” VARIANT (DC) – Awesome cover
DEATH OF INHUMANS #2 CHECCHETTO YOUNG GUNS (MARVEL) – Love this cover
DISNEY FROZEN BREAKING BOUNDARIES #1 (DARK HORSE) – Who was spec’ing on this? Let’s not please.
LEVIATHAN #1 (IMAGE)– The 1:25 B&W variant is selling for $18 to $20 shipped.
MARVEL RISING MS MARVEL SQUIRREL GIRL #1 (MARVEL) – The variants could see some spikes when the animated film releases.
ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES #1 (DYNAMITE) – The 1:10 virgin variant is selling for $10 (but can be had for cheaper).
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA CEREBI #1 – Great TMNT #1 homage.
