The Weekend After Wednesday for 1/12/19
Want to know which books from Wednesday’s new releases 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, 1/9/19. They could still be at your shop.
GREEN ARROW #48 ADAMS B SKETCH VARIANT (DC) – Here’s the surprise book of the week. Copies are selling for a steady $10 shipped with a few recent individual sales of $15 & $20. I don’t think those prices will hold, but we’ll see.
HARLEY QUINN #57 TEDESCO B VARIANT (DC) – While this anticipated variant was hitting high pre-sales, the values didn’t suffer much from the huge number of copies that hit the market. As I write this, 186+ copies have sold. The current going price is $25 shipped and seems to be going up a bit every day. I’ve heard people call this the new BATGIRL #23 MIDDLETON VARIANT and it definitely seems to be going that direction (which is a $50-$70 raw book now by the way, yet strangely sells for $80 to $120 in 9.8. Time for a market correction?).
LAST WEEK UPDATE
KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN SUN #2 (MAD CAVE) – This is still holding at $20 while the first print keeps jumping.
WWE #24 RAHZZAH 1:15 ANIMAL STEELE VARIANT (BOOM) – This was selling for $40 last week, however that was also the last time one sold.
THIS TIME LAST YEAR
ROSE #7 LOOPYDAVE COVER “B” VARIANT (IMAGE) – Last year, this was selling really well at $17-$20 shipped. However, it’s back down to cover… maybe even less since even cover price copies haven’t sold in months.
STABBITY BUNNY #1 (SCOUT) – Wow, this came out a year ago? I feel like this has been out for years. Back then, it was selling for $12. It mostly sells for about the same now. Sometimes it sells for a little higher and sometimes a little lower. The white box variant sells for $20.
CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 (MARVEL) – With such an anticipated release ahead of anticipated content, the print run is going to be high. With that said, all variants are selling at ratio, Hughes virgin 1:100 @ $100, Hughes 1:25 @ $25, Ross 1:50 @ $50, etc. The Campbell store variants are doing the best (roughly around $60-$75 for each cover).
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #1 ARTGERM 1:100 VIRGIN VARIANT (MARVEL) – Another anticipated release that’s also selling at ratio, $100 shipped.
LIFE IS STRANGE #2 (TITAN) – The main cover has been mostly selling for cover, except for one recent sale for $11 shipped.
WEB OF VENOM UNLEASHED #1 BRADSHAW VARIANT (MARVEL) – Like LIFE IS STRANGE, this is also selling for cover and had one recent sale of $10. One to watch.
RAGS #3 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – Either people are out on RAGS at this point or stores are ordering more, making them easier to find. Not quite sure. After so much traction of the 1st and 2nd issue, this issue is selling for cover (The variant has a bigger price tag at $9.99).
SAVANTS #1 (OF 5) (SOURCE POINT) – While this is only selling for cover, there’s a GOLD FOIL that’s limited to 100 copies that sells for $30.
