Variant Heat Check for 11/6/18



East of West #1 Diamond Summit Variant Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

I typically don’t put signed books on the heat check, but this one was too pretty to leave out. This very cool Dragotta remark, double signed (by Dragotta and Hickman) in 9.8, sold for a whopping $2,250. Raw copies are creeping back towards $200, with one selling for $180 and a VF going for $150.

Eternals #2 30 Cent Price Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

It appears that people are now betting on the Celestials, as copies of this 30 cent price variant have started to move up in price. A higher grade raw sold for $180, while a mid to lower grade sold for $110

I don’t understand the appeal of these books (besides the obvious T&A), but sex sells, and this book is a solid $70.

    Yeah, I would say it is a good to bet on Celestials at this point. Even if you didn’t jump on the Eternals band wagon when the first few issues were dirt cheap there are still many Celestial first appearances throughout the entire 19 issue bronze age run. Most of the issues with Celestial first appearances can still be found pretty cheap even in high grade. Definitely worth picking up some just in case. When it comes to Celestials who knows which ones Marvel Films would introduce so cover those bases!

        Have fun searching them out! Outside of the first three issues the rest of the Eternals with celestial first appearances won’t be hard to come by at good (cheap) prices. You can still be picky with them right now and shouldn’t have too much of a problem finding them even outside of Ebay. If you have any comic shops that sell bronze age stuff close by you can probably find some copies cheaper than online. It’s all a crap shoot right now but Eternals #7 looks like a good bet as well. Until the studios release official info it’s all just guess work, but “if” the Celestials are going to play a big part in the Marvel Movie U from here on out right now is the last time frame to buy at cheap or not budget breaking prices. Get high grade (9.0 or higher) if you can.

          I’ve had an easy time finding various Eternals issues in dusty dollar bins, VG-VF+ plus stuff.

            Yeah, even at VG “if” the Eteranls and Celestials take off they will sell multiples of what you got them for! If they don’t take off, ya got them cheap and very low risk.
