Variant Heat Check for 3/4/19


Ultimate Fallout #4 Newsstand Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

I don’t get the appeal of newsstand variants, but there is a market for them, and this book is extremely rare in newsstand. Only three copies have surfaced since December, and the last two have eclipsed $300, which is more than 3 times the amount of the regular version and about what 9.8’s go for.

Jem and the Holograms #1 Artgerm Wondercon Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

I’ve definitely noticed older and more obscure Artgerm covers start to sell, and this one has dried up. One came to market last month and only got $40, which is why this sale for $150 was shocking. Does it last? Probably not, but maybe it’s time to start digging up those other older Artgerm covers.

Marvel Tails #1 Canadian Price Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

I never thought I would be talking about this book again, but here we are nearly three months after the movie was released and one Oscar later, and this character hasn’t gone away. A high grade Canadian variant went for almost $200.

The Mall #1 1:10 Variant


Here is a cautionary tale for you. There has been no news on this property that I could find since it was optioned in October of last year, but some guy mentioned that it just got optioned on you tube (on March 4th), and a buying frenzy occurs, which causes issues to sell for up to $35, and a 9.8 to sell for $150. Do your research people, this is old news.
