The Weekend After Wednesday for 12/28/2018

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, 12/26/2018. They could still be at your shop.


NONE: Due to Christmas, this was a VERY quiet and light week (which I LOVE).  There’s no HOT book of the week.  Only Marvel released a few titles this year, and none are notable. So, enjoy the break and check out some great back issues at your LCS or online.  (Hint. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 SUPER SPECIAL: PLANET OF THE SYMBIOTES #1 just sold for $120 raw!!)

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12 GRANOV GALACTUS VARIANT (MARVEL) – There was one sale at $25, thought it can be purchased for a consistent $8 shipped.

DOMINO #9 (MARVEL) – Missed this one last week.  It was selling for double cover.  It’s now back to cover price or even less.

GRUMBLE #2 (ALBATROSS) – Jenny Frison’s variant for issue #2 is still selling well at $15 shipped.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #34 LITHEN VIRGIN VARIANT (BOOM) – Wow, I totally expected this to drop by now.  Still holding at $45.

OGRE #3 (SOURCE POINT) – The prices waver from cover price to $10 shipped.

THOR #8 KAARE ANDREWS VARIANT(MARVEL) – Prices have dropped a little to steady $10 shipped.



X-FORCE #1 1:25 LIEFELD VARIANT (MARVEL)– This Liefeld variant was mostly selling for $15 shipped.  However, there was a recent sale of $25.



MARVEL ACTION AVENGERS #1 (MARVEL)– Captain Marvel 1:25 only selling for $15.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL)– The 1:50 Lupacchino Stan Lee Tribute variant is selling for $40.

    I dig that captain marvel 1:25 for marvel action avengers #1. Something about it just looks cool. Could be a sleeper as I’m sure the print run is on the low side and people haven’t been paying attention to comics this week (and they shouldnt over Xmas!)

    120?!?! Seems to be a few listed for way below that 🤔

      It is weird… but I did confirm that the sale was legit. It seems that sellers are getting more when they list it with the Scarlet Spider side over the Planet Symbiote side.

    Yea I was gonna say… way cooler side!

    The normal price for ASM Super Special in NM grade is about $30. One outlier sale shouldn’t become the norm. Getting 4x the price is very suspicious considering dozens sell for a lot less.

      Yep, definitely not the norm but thought it was interesting enough to post. The seller was surprised to get it himself. Buying has been weird. For example, someone who sells on Amazon told me that he’s sold several Spiderman Noir variants at $300 each, while my 9.8 sits at $250. Who knows why some pull the trigger on crazy amounts. Maybe it’s a search issue or just someone who just doesn’t know?
