The Weekend After Wednesday for 12/15/18
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, 12/12/18. They could still be at your shop.
DEFENDERS SILVER SURFER #1 1:25 SKAN VARIANT (MARVEL) – After hitting a pre-sale high of $95 this was the variant to hunt for this week. However, prices dropped to $70, then $50 and have settled to $35/$40 shipped. That’s still not bad for 1:25 variant.
MEGA GHOST #1 (OF 5) (ALBATROSS) – The awesome Eric Powell B Variant is selling for $17 to $22. Even the standard cover sells for $10 shipped.
PUNCHLINE #2 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – While I’ll admit that I follow RAGS just for the heat of it all, I actually really enjoy PUNCHLNE. The art is fantastic and the story is fun. With that said, I can’t find a copy of issue #2. #1 was quite a challenge as well. I think this series has potential. The standard issue sells for $12 to $17 shipped. The soaring variant sells for $40.
X-23 #7 (MARVEL) – Almost forgot this one.. The Deodato variant is commanding $45 to $50. Even the standard cover is going for $15 now. 1st X-Assassin seems to be what's driving these prices.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
DEFENDERS IMMORTAL HULK #1 1:50 GRANOV VARIANT (MARVEL) – This Granov 1:50 variant has dropped from $65/$70 to $40 to $50.
GRUMBLE #1 (ALBATROSS) – The Dog “Witchcraft” variant dropped from a high of $100 last week to now $48. The “Buy this book” variant fell from $35(ish) to $20 shipped. The B variant is selling for $12 shipped.
KILLMONGER #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – The movie variant went up a tad to $11, the 1:25 variant sells for $18 and the 1:50 is at $43.
OGRE #2 (OF 3) (SOURCE POINTE) – Selling for a little under $10 shipped.
RAGS #1 2ND PRINTING (ANTARTIC PRESS) – This 2nd print was selling for $20 last week and about $14/$15 this week.
ROAD OF THE DEAD HIGHWAY TO HELL #2 1:10 B&W VARIANT (IDW) – This 1:10 variant fell from $28 to $15.
THE SOURCE #2 (SCOUT) – The 2nd issue is still selling for $14/15 shipped. The limited to 300 copies Scout webstore variant is also still selling for $40.
UNCANNY X-MEN #4 BROOKS 1:100 HIDDEN GEMS VARIANT (MARVEL) – This Mark Brooks variant is still moving really well and fetching a steady $200.
WINTER SOLDIER #1 1:50 GUICE VARIANT (MARVEL) – With more copies coming to market, this has leveled back down to ratio at $50 (and a little lower in a few cases).
TEAM MOBILE #1 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – I debated having this in warm due to one lonely sale of $9.50 + shipping. There aren’t many copies listed, yet those copies are all hoping for $15 to $20. There doesn’t seem to be much heat on it like there has been for RAGS and PUNCHLINE.
BATMAN DAMNED #2 (OF 3) (DC) – Batman: Damned #1 hasn’t stopped selling since it’s release. It’s easily the top selling book week after week. Raw prices have barely dropped. With that momentum, every store was well on top of ordering plenty of copies of issue #2. Right now, these are selling for cover price. Without the controversy of a bat penis, can this go up? Probably not much.
BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #1 (OF 6) – This week’s big seller is only selling for cover.
CEMETERY BEACH #4 HOMAGE VARIANT (IMAGE) – Such a cool homage cover.
FANTASTIC FOUR WEDDING SPECIAL #1 (MARVEL) – As a She-Hulk fan, the Artgerm variant was surprisingly hard to find for me. Artgerm’s take on She-Hulk may be a tad too buff, but I was glad to finally find one.
MILES MORALES SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL) – The 1:25 Granov and 1:50 Garbett variants are both great covers. However, they’re selling for under ratio with the 1:25 @ $20 and the 1:50 @ $40.
