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.

HOT

 

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. 

LAST WEEK UPDATE

APPALACHIAN APOCALYPSE #1 (CAVE PICTURES PUBLISHING) – Down from $14 to $10 shipped.

CATWOMAN #7 OLIVER B VARIANT (DC) Still holding at $10 shipped.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN #2 BROOKS 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Down a bit to $56.

MARVEL TALES VENOM #1 VIRGIN BARTEL 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Holding at $100.

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.

UNCANNY X-MEN #10 FINCH VARIANT (MARVEL) – Down a bit from $30 to $20/$25.

WHITE WIDOW #1 (RED GIANT) – The standard “silver” cover is selling for $20 and the Red Foil variant is still selling for $25.

HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR

LEGION #1 (OF 5) (MARVEL) The Sienkiewicz standard variant was selling for $13 shipped last year and is still selling around $12 shipped now.

PHOENIX RESURRECTION RETURN JEAN GREY #4 (OF 5) SINGH 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) This gorgeous cover averaged between $45-$48 one year ago.  It has since dropped to $30.

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.

WARM

 

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.

PUNCHLINE #3 (ANTARCTIC PRESS)Prices vary between $7 and $14.

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.

    I didnt get any blossoms 666 at my lcs. I ordered a bunch from Archie and i am hoping they dont come trashed as i have been hearing bad things about the shipping.

    The Blossoms 666 was a good read. Lightly ordered in my area, with most shops having just one copy of each variant cover.

    Also note there is a store exclusive cover by Hack that has a nice retro vibe.

    Archie comics is onto something with this horror take on their characters. Helps that Sabrina translated well to Netflix.

    Anyone know the ration of the X-Men Wolverine Finch variant?

    I love that Blossom 666 cover … the Francavilla is awesome too but the Hack has really grown on me and it makes me even happier to know it was hard to find. I managed to snag 9.8 candidates of both. May grade em when I have extra cash. But I’m in no rush as they are solidly PC books that I have no plans of selling.
