Trade Secrets #29
Greetings my fellow agents.
It’s a busy summer, but I still find time to identify some interesting action in the secondary market.
Supply and demand are such beautifully consistent forces. Volumes 1 – 5 all have reprints, 6 does not. That turned this $16 book into a $52 book.
Conan: The Curse of the Golden Skull and Other Stories collects Conan the Barbarian (1970-93 Marvel) #35-42. Published by Dark Horse these trades feature completely remastered color and text corrections.
I know this was a popular series, but it always amazes me when a newer $20 TPB sells for a price like $79. It collects Godzilla in Hell #1-5.
Another example of video game and comic book crossover popularity. This $17 retail book just sold for $37 on ebay. The funny thing is, If you go back just two days before one sold for $2. Timing is everything. Another flip in the making?
This trade reprints World of Warcraft: Curse of the Worgen #1-5.
Trade paperbacks like these are the ones that often end up sitting around in physical stores. Keep your eyes open agents!
That’s all for this week's Trade Secrets. Good luck out there.
Agent Newton out.
