The Weekend After Wednesday for 8/11/18
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, 8/8/18. They could still be at your shop.
RIPTIDE #1 (OF 4) (RED 5) – This book is really tough to find, hence the current going price of $25. There’s only two copies currently listed. This is only going up.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
STAR WARS LAST JEDI ADAPTATION #5 (OF 6) 1:25 LOPEZ VARIANT (MARVEL) – While not many copies have sold over the past week, the most recent copy sold for $39 shipped. It’s also worth noting that there are only 4 copies currently listed.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
MISTER MIRACLE #1 (OF 12) (DC) – Last year, this book was hot out of the gate and was also one of the first rebirth titles to get past $10. Cover A was selling for $12 and cover B was selling for $15. One year later, both covers are selling for $40 each (sometimes even higher). This is one of the few HOT books from THIS TIME LAST YEAR to actually increase significantly.
SUPERGIRL #12 ARTGERM “B” VARIANT (DC) – I loved this cover last year and still do. This cover “flew” under the radar and surprised shops when everyone wanted one and no one could find them easily. It was definitely the cover that made stores finally see huge value in Artgerm. Unfortunately, that translated to stores over ordering subsequent Supergirl variants. Regardless, #12 sold for $10 when it first released. It now sells for $12 to $19 shipped.
TOYETICA #1 (ACTION LAB) – After selling for a height of $17 during it’s initial release week, it quickly dropped to cover just a week later… where it has stayed.
DINOSAUCERS #1 (LIONS FORGE) – Copies are selling for $9 shipped. There’s only 1 domestic copy listed at $14.
BLACK BADGE #1 (BOOM!) – While most of these variants are selling for under ratio, I wouldn’t under estimate the Jeff Lemire 1:20 variant. His variants tend to jump up in value.
CATWOMAN #2 ARTGERM “B” VARIANT (DC) – I may not be buying multiples of Artgerm covers anymore, I do still pick one up for the PC. This one is no different.
DETECTIVE COMICS #986 BROOKS “B” VARIANT (DC) – Man, I absolutely love these Brooks B variants. You can clearly tell that he enjoy drawing Batman and puts a lot of effort into making these. Every copy I found had significant spine creases. Time to find a copy online.
FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (MARVEL) – Personally, spec wise, I stayed far away from this title. With such a high print run and way too many variants, there’s really only one way for most of these to do… down. Just look at the Ross 1:50 variant. You can buy a copy for $17 shipped. This is the lowest I’ve ever seen for a Ross variant that JUST came out.
NORAH #1 (OF 4) (SOURCE POINT) – One copy sold for $10 shipped, though there are cheaper copies available.
WONDER WOMAN #52 (DC) – Whether you love or dislike this, you’ll never un-see double headbands.
