The Weekend After Wednesday for 1/26/19
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, 1/23/19. They could still be at your shop.
BLOSSOMS 666 #1 HACK D VARIANT (ARCHIE) – Awesome variant, yet I didn’t see a single copy anywhere. It’s selling for $15-$18 shipped.
GRUMBLE #3 (ALBATROSS) – Both covers are doing well. The standard is selling for $10-$11 shipped and the variant for $14 to $20.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 PREMIERE VARIANT (MARVEL) – To my experience, most retailers mark these premiere and party variants WAY up. This premiere variant sells between $50 and $60. Whether or not this is hot for you really depends on how your shops prices these. My shop charged $100, so this wasn’t hot for me. With that said, I know some shops only charge cover price. So, it really depends. Most premiere variants don’t hold value. The party variants sell for $22 and the incentive variants are all way under ratio.
HEROES AT LARGE #1 (ANTARCTIC PRESS) – Antarctic Press is doing pretty well lately. This book is currently selling for $16 to $25.
IMMORTAL HULK #12 (MARVEL) – A gorgeous Alex Ross cover and averaging around $13 shipped.
LADY DEATH HELLRAIDERS #1 BOMBSHELL VARIANT (COFFIN) – Lady Death variants are hard to find in shops. Heck, even the regular edition can be challenging. Regardless, Lady Death has a strong fan base and plenty of her books see significant spikes. This variant is selling for $15.

TMNT SHREDDER IN HELL #1 1:10 ALBUQUERQUE VARIANT (IDW) – Down from $65 to $27/$30. The Eastman 24hr flash sale variant is taking most of its thunder and selling for $50 to $70.

TEEN TITANS #12 2ND PRINTING (DC) – This time last year this went for $10-11 and now ranges from $16 to cover price.
THANOS #15 (MARVEL) – This was a steady $16 shipped last year and now goes for $35 to $40.
CRYPT OF SHADOWS #1 YOUNG GUNS VARIANT (MARVEL) – The Young Guns variant is selling for $15. If you can get this for cover price, then this is could be a good book to grab.
DIE KITTY DIE HEAVEN AND HELL #4 SCOOBY DOO VARIANT (CHAPTERHOUSE) – This has been selling… but only in sets and multiples. Roughly, this seems to be selling for $15/$20. There aren’t that may sold or listed… so, this is in WARM for now.

WAR IS HELL #1 CHECCETTO YOUN GUNS VARIANT (MARVEL) – Here’s another young guns variant that’s selling for $10 to $15. Again, depends on whether your store marks these up.
