The Weekend After Wednesday for 9/15/2018
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, 9/12/18. They could still be at your shop.
RAGS #1 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – Wow, these sure shot up fast. I had these in my cart at the Antarctic Press store and just couldn’t pull the trigger. Well, the regular cover is now selling for $30 to $50 and the virgin cover (limited to 100 copies) is selling for $100. One auction on eBay still has 5 days left and is already at $127.50. Oops! Oh well.
RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #26 PUTRI “B” VARIANT (DC) – This gorgeous Putri cover sells for $12 shipped. These B variants have really been fantastic at showcasing underrated artist’s and bringing them into the big leagues. Red Hood #25 is also awesome and sells for $17/$18.
RIPTIDE #2 (OF 4) – Earlier this week, a copy sold for $60. That’s insane. Prices have settled to $18 shipped, which his still pretty good. 2ndissues rarely see such a price jump.
STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI #6 MAYHEW 1:25 VARIANT – This book just seems to be climbing (despite one seller recently listing this as a $10 buy in now). It’s currently at $69.86 and there are only 5 copies listed. This will continue to go up over the next couple weeks.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
BORDER TOWN #1 “B” JIMENEZ VARIANT (DC) – This B variant is still doing well and selling for $10 to $20 shipped. Cover A is selling for cover price and the SDCC retailer preview is picking up and starting to sell for about $12 shipped.
ELRIC WHITE WOLF #1 (OF 2) B VARIANT (TITAN) – This B variant is holding and still selling at $20 shipped.
FAMILY GRAVES #1 (SOURCE POINT PRESS) – These did drop a bit to $10/$13 shipped.
UNNATURAL #3 (OF 12) CBLDF CHARITY UNCENSORED (IMAGE) – These went up over the past week from $11 last to various prices between $13-$19 shipped.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
REALM #1 (IMAGE) – Last year, both covers were selling a little over $10. Haun's is selling for $10 and Moore’s (which is awesome) is selling for about $12. While the covers have dropped to cover (and less in some cases), several of the harder to fin variants have dried up. The secret variant that was selling for $110 to $200 a year ago, recently sold for $46.
ROSE #6 CVR B FINCH (IMAGE) – Selling for $12 to $15 last year and now this mostly sells for cover price. The blue foil does a bit better at $10.
SHEENA #1 1:50 VIRGIN CAMPBELL VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – A year ago, this were selling for $70 to $80. Copies are now pretty dry. Only a few copies are listed and the most recent copy sold for $50 shipped.
SINK #1 (COMIXTRIBE) –Sales for SINK were really good last year, with both cover A & B both selling separately for $17 shipped. A set ran a little cheaper at $27 shipped. Today, there aren’t many sales. However, the most recent sale was for both covers was at $28.75 shipped. It's worth noting that most listed copies are sitting.
TEEN TITANS #12 METAL TIE-IN (DC) – This time last year,both covers were selling for $10-12 shipped. The Sejic A cover fluctuates in prices from $25 to $60. The variant sells for $28 to $30. CGC has this noted as the “First full appearance of the Batman Who Laughs”. So, this is definitely a big win. I think it will continue to climb.
CATWOMAN #3 ARTGERM “B” VARIANT (DC) – I love the gold foil for this. Get ready for #4, which could possibly be (arguably) Artgerm’s best cover yet.
CEMETERY BEACH #1 (OF 7) (IMAGE) – The story is fun. I’m on board for the next one.
DISPOSABLE LEGENDS #1 (OF 6) (T-PUB)
TRUMPS TITANS VS DIVERSITY #1 (OF 1) 1:5 FAKE NEWS VARIANT (KEENSPOT) –variant – This is selling for $15/$19 shipped.
VENOM FIRST HOST #3 (OF 5) – Venom first host isn’t moving above cover price right now, but it sure did kick off Venom #165. Venom #165 (the “A” cover and the Deodato variant) features the first baby symbiote that bonds with Eddie Brock in Venom First Host. Those are selling for about $12 shipped for the variant and $8 shipped for the standard. A set sells for more at $29 shipped.
