The Weekend After Wednesday for 1/19/19
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, 1/16/19. They could still be at your shop.
APPALACHIAN APOCALYPSE #1 (CAVE PICTURES PUBLISHING) – A copy is listed for $2,499 if you feel really confident that this could double the current value of WALKING DEAD. I doubt it. With that said, this is selling for $13 to $16.
CATWOMAN #7 OLIVER B VARIANT (DC) – This gorgeous Ben Oliver variant was heating up earlier this week and was creeping up to $20 shipped, until the market flooded and brought it back down to $10 shipped. There are a ton of copies listed, so prices will be heading back to cover price. For now, it’s still HOT.
CONAN THE BARBARIAN #2 BROOKS 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – I love this cover. Mark Brooks is just awesome. This is selling for $60 to $70 shipped.
MARVEL TALES VENOM #1 VIRGIN BARTEL 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – There has been only one sale at $100. Current listed copies are going that way via auction as well. Bartel brings a different energy to Venom then previous artists. This could see some heat.
TMNT SHREDDER IN HELL #1 1:10 ALBUQUERQUE VARIANT (IDW) – It’s not often when a 1:10 hits as high as this is currently. It’s selling for $65 to $80. This is officially the hottest book of the week. 1:10 is obtainable, so go check your LCS!
UNCANNY X-MEN #10 FINCH VARIANT (MARVEL) – This Finch cover was impossible to find this week and now commands $30. It’s a great classic Wolverine cover that should have long-term value.
WHITE WIDOW #1 (RED GIANT) – After a successful Kickstarter, we knew this was coming and yet it was very hard to find. The Kickstarter has a lot of different variant covers. Focusing on just the books released in stores, the standard “silver” cover sells for $25 to $35. The Red Foil variant is selling for $25. Both should have decent legs, as long as the Kickstarter exclusives don’t water down the value once those ship.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 (MARVEL) – One week later, values are pretty much holding in line with last week's sales at ratio. However, the 1:100 virgin variant saw a sale on Friday of $160. So, this book might start seeing more price bumps.
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #1 ARTGERM 1:100 VIRGIN VARIANT (MARVEL) –This 1:100 variant took a bit of a hit over the week and dropped from $100 to its current $70.
GREEN ARROW #48 ADAMS B SKETCH VARIANT (DC) – What a difference a week makes. Dropping from a height of $20 to now cover price… and some even selling for $1.
HARLEY QUINN #57 TEDESCO B VARIANT (DC) – This hot book from last week is STILL selling a ton of copies on eBay. It’s actually seen a slight increase to $30 shipped.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VENOM INC OMEGA #1 1:50 DELL’OTTO (MARVEL) – $100 last year and now selling at ratio for $50.
AVENGERS #676 BROOKS COVER A (MARVEL) – A year ago, this was selling between $18 to $20 shipped and today sells for $7 to $9 shipped.
CALL OF THE SUICIDE FOREST #1 (OF 5) (AMIGO) – Last year, this sold for $11-$15 shipped and now for less then cover price.
ICE CREAM MAN #1 (IMAGE) – Finally, a book that has increased one year later. Both covers were selling for $15 shipped, or $26 for a set. EBay even flooded with copies, yet survived. Granted, a content announcement for this helped shoot the value up to the current $40 to $60 for cover A and $35 to $40 for cover B.
TEETHER #1 (OF 4) (ANTARTIC) – Prices were averaging around $10 shipped for the standard cover and now sell below cover price.
BLACK HAMMER #1 DIRECTORS CUT (DARK HORSE) – There aren’t many copies listed nor sold. But the last copy sold for $15. I doubt the print run is large for this, so it could have some legs when content eventually releases.
TMNT IDW 2020 1:10 RODRIGUEZ VARIANT (IDW) – The 1:10 Rodriguez variant did see one sale at $20 shipped and there are no other copies going that way. So, WARM it is.
WONDER WOMAN #62 SCALERA B VARIANT (DC) – This cover is awesome and really stands out on the shelf. The style felt familiar and it took me a few days to figure out why. This feels very Frank Miller, but more controlled and cleaner. It was hitting sales of $12 but has come down a bit to $8 shipped.
BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #2 (OF 6) (DC) – There are some sales at $1 to $2 over cover.
SUPERGIRL #26 ARTGERM B VARIANT (DC) – Just checking in with the current Artgerm Supergirl variants. Still going for cover.
