The Weekend After Wednesday for 2/23/19
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, 2/20/19. They could still be at your shop.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2 1:25 SCALERA VARIANT (MARVEL) – This was a pretty light week and here’s the only HOT book. It’s been bouncing around from $35 to $55 all week. It’s been pretty inconsistent from one sale to the next. The most recent sales have been for $40 shipped.
LAST WEEK UPDATE
AVENGERS NO ROAD HOME #1 (OF 10) HUGHES 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Still holding at $75 shipped.
CAPTAIN MARVEL #2 BACHALO 1:50 VARIANT (MARVEL) – This book was a surprise drop this week. It fell from a height of $119.95 last week to its current $52 to $70.
DEAD MAN LOGAN #4 (OF 12) ZAFFINO 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL) – Selling for a steady $60/$70 shipped, many came to market with the heat. It saw a slight dip to $50 to $60 shipped.
EXCITING COMICS #1 SPEEDWAY VARIANT (ANTARTIC PRESS) – The SPEEDWAY variant is still doing the best. It had a retail price of $19.99, limited to 300 copies and dropped from $50 to now $30.
MARVEL TALES BLACK WIDOW #1 1:50 BARTEL VIRGIN VARIANT (MARVEL) – Last week, there was only one (US) sale for $114. It was my favorite book of the week and impossible to find (yes, I still don’t have a copy). That seems to still be the case. Only 5 more have been listed since last week. Those sold for $225, $224.99 & $249.99. There are only two copies listed in auctions, each over $165+ and with a couple days left to go.
HOT – THIS TIME LAST YEAR
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #796 (MARVEL) – If you can recall this book from last year, it was the one that spurred a large debate over Red Goblin’s first appearance. Regardless of the debate, this was selling for $20 shipped. When news trickled in the day of release about this issue NOT containing a full appearance, it then dropped to about $12+shipping. And then…. it jumped right back up to $20. One year later it’s still selling for $15 to $20.
AVENGERS #15 PAREL CAPTAIN MARVEL VARIANT (MARVEL) – Great cover and selling for $10 shipped.
HIGH LEVEL #1 (DC) – The Francesco B variant is selling for $10 to $11 shipped.
HULKVERINES #1 (OF 3) (MARVEL) – I’m really not a fan of the name of this book… but I digress. The 1:25 Cory Smith variant is selling for ratio at $25 shipped.
PUNCHLINE #4 (ANTARTIC PRESS) – One seller has been selling this consistently at $16 shipped (though there are cheaper ones available at $8 shipped. The Valentine’s Day Red Foil did see one sale at $45. There are also cheaper copies available of this. Antarctic has listed these on their site as well.
VENOM #11 GIBBONS WATCHMEN HOMAGE VARIANT (MARVEL) – Here’s another $10 shipped book this week.
DIE #1 3RD PTG (IMAGE) – With all the heat of DIE #1 first print, there’s some potential with this print.
LOVE ROMANCES #1 DAUTERMAN YOUN GUNS VARIANT (MARVEL) – The variant is selling between $7 to $10 shipped. It’s a nice/ classic cover. I can see this go up at some point in the future.
