The Weekend After Wednesday for 10/6/2018
Want to know which books from yesterday’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, 10/3/2018. They could still be at your shop.
DEADPOOL #5 (MARVEL) – I definitely liked this cover when it was revealed (without trade dressing) over the past couple months. However, I wasn’t planning on rushing out for this…. until I saw the Garbage Pail Kids trade dressing and I was so in. It’s currently selling for $15/$18 shipped.
DEAD RABBIT #1 1:10 JOHNSON VARIANT (IMAGE) – I like this cover a lot. It’s selling for $20 shipped. The NYCC (which is not as good) is selling for $28.
DEATHSTROKE #36 (DC) – Before Deadpool #5 took over, this was already set to be the hottest book of the week. At it’s highest, copies were selling for $30-$40. $15 shipped seems to be the going price right now.
MOBSTER GRAVEYARD #1 (OF 5) (ANTARTIC) – Not sure exactly why, but this is a steady $20 book right now.
NIGHTWING #50 MEYERS B VARIANT (DC) – Here’s another book flying under the radar. This is probably the best (arguably) Nightwing cover I’ve seen. It’s selling for a steady $12 and seems to be picking up.
SPARROWHAWK #1 1:15 HANS VARIANT (BOOM!) – Prices are all over the place for the Stephanie Hans variant. The most recent sales have been for $50 and $64. There are a lot of copies listed, so a price drop does seem to be imminent.
VENOM AMC OPENING WEEKEND GIVEAWAY – Reports of people walking away with stacks of these are very telling of the print run (it’s high). There’s a HUGE amount of copies listed and most are pretty beat. These are thin and mishandled, so 9.8’s will sell for a premium. Right now, these are selling for $8 to $13 shipped. So, you pretty much get a free movie (mostly) if you get a copy this weekend. Regardless, it’s an awesome cover.
WONDER WOMAN & JL DARK WITCHING HOUR #1 FERERICI B VARIANT (DC) – Another great (yet creepy) variant this week. There was one sale @ $25 shipped and has since settled to $10 shipped.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA #24 REIS BOBA FETT B VARIANT (MARVEL) – Over the past week, this went up a bit. It was $15/$18 and is now $18/$20 shipped.
VENOM FIRST HOST #5 GARRON VARIANT (MARVEL) – Unlike the above Boba Fett variant, this dropped a bit from last week’s $12-$14 shipped to now $10.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
BATMAN THE DAWNBREAKER #1 (METAL) (DC) – One year ago, this was selling for $12-$13 shipped. It’s held well over the year and now sells for $12 to $15 shipped.
WEED MAGIC (BLISS ON TAP) – Last year this was selling for $10 shipped, and still sells for $8/$10. The “Supergirl And The Legion Of Super-Heroes #23” homage sells for a bit more at $15.
BARACK PANTHER #1 (ANTARTIC PRESS)– I have this in warm specifically because I can’t tell what the buy in is for most of these covers. The standard cover sells for cover price. The Silver Screen variant sells for $15 shipped. The Silver Screen Foil sells for $25. Lastly, the Green Foil (limited to 100 copies) sells for $30/$35.
BLACKBIRD #1 (IMAGE) – This is such a gorgeous book. I absolutely love Bartel and I’m very on-board with this book. The NYCC Foil is doing well at $30 shipped.
COSMIC GHOST RIDER #4 (OF 5) LIM MARVEL BATTLE LINES VARIANT (MARVEL) – The Superlog 1:25 variant is selling for $14/$15 shipped. The cover I love is the Lim Battle Lines virgin cover. It’s pretty awesome.
SHATTERSTAR #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – The 1:50 Liefeld Variant is creeping close to ratio. Sales vary between $35 to $45.
STAR WARS TALES FROM VADERS CASTLE #1 (OF 5) (IDW) – The 1:100 variant seems like a hard pass. It’s selling for $40 and shares the same cover (in sketch form) with the NYCC variant.
THESE SAVAGE SHORES #1 (VAULT) – The white noise variant (limited to 300 copies) is selling for $17 shipped.
TYPHOID FEVER SPIDER-MAN #1 JOEN MARVEL BATTLE LINES VARIANT (MARVEL) – Here’s a underrated cover of the week. This Typhoid Mary variant is gorgeous. Heejin Joen is another artist to watch closely.
UMBRELLA ACADEMY HOTEL OBLIVION #1 (DARK HORSE) – The NYCC variant is selling for $20 to $40.
X-MEN BLACK MAGNETO #1 (MARVEL) – The Campbell 1:100 virgin variant is seeing sales around $70. Some hit above ratio $119. However, most are selling below ratio.
