The Weekend After Wednesday for 12/22/2018
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, 12/19/18. They could still be at your shop.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12 GRANOV GALACTUS VARIANT (MARVEL) – While this isn’t the biggest price jump of the week, it’s seeing a lot of movement and selling for $10 to $13 shipped.
GRUMBLE #2 (ALBATROSS) – Following #1’s success, issue #2 is selling well at $15 shipped. No secret variant for this one.
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #34 LITHEN VIRGIN VARIANT (BOOM) – I haven’t followed POWER RANGERS for quite a while, however word is this features the first appearance of a new ranger. That helps explain why this 1:25 variant is selling for $45.
OGRE #3 (SOURCE POINT) – The #2 & #3 issues are moving up. These issues tend to have MUCH lower print runs. Seeing how hard this issue was to find this week, I’m not surprised that this is selling for $13/$14 shipped.
THOR #8 KAARE ANDREWS VARIANT(MARVEL) – Prices are a little all over the place. It’s selling for a tad over cover price to $15 shipped. It’s a great cover, but I just don’t see it going any higher.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
DEFENDERS SILVER SURFER #1 1:25 SKAN VARIANT (MARVEL) – While this fell sharply last week, it has settled to consistent $35.
MEGA GHOST #1 (OF 5) (ALBATROSS) – While recent sales are still going for $18, they have quickly slowed down. There’s a small flood of copies and most aren’t moving.
PUNCHLINE #2 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – This second issue sells for $12 to $15 shipped. The soaring variant is still selling for $35/$40.
DARTH VADER #25 DELL’OTTO 1:25 VARIANT – This variant was selling for $30 to $45. It’s currently moving at ratio. STAR WARS variants tend to always drop.
KILLMONGER #2 (OF 5) 1:25 DEKAL VARIANT (MARVEL) – Selling mostly at ratio plus shipping, this 1:25 variant is WARM at $30. There are enough copies listed to lock it in at that price for a while.
CATWOMAN #6 VARIANT (DC) – Love this Artgerm cover.
CHAMPIONS ANNUAL #1 (MARVEL) – The Babs Tarr variant is not her best.
LIVEWIRE #1 (VALANT) – The 1:250 glass cover is selling for under ratio between $160 to $225. I actually think this the glass cover is pretty awesome. Having seen the BLOODSHOT one is person, it’s gorgeous. However, having such a fun gimmick doesn’t work as well when the cover is just okay. I’m surprised that Valiant fans haven’t been snatching these up. It’s been a while since a Valiant variant has been HOT.
SPIDER-GEDDON #5 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – The Del Rey 1:50 is selling for $30.
TEEN TITANS #25 GARNER “B” VARIANT (DC) – I’m not sure who I love more, Garner or Brooks. Both have a gorgeous, clean & polished style. This variant is no different. If CRUSH ever takes off big one day, this will be the cover I will point to as her best.
