3 Daredevil (Vol. 7) #2 2nd Print

WRITER: Chip Zdarsky

Cover appearance by Cole North has pushed this to a $30-40 book.  This was cover price a week ago.  Again, will anyone care about this character?

4 Black Widow #1 J.G. Jones Variant

WRITER: Devin Grayson

Now this is a character that may have staying power.  Yelena is hot.  This one jumped from $5 a few weeks ago to $80 (ignoring the 9.0 copy that sold around $30).

5 Legend of Oz: The Wicked West (Vol. 2) #7 Shannon Maer Variant /250

WRITER: Eric M. Esquivel
ARTIST: Carlos Reno
If you haven’t noticed, Maer is on the rise.  All of his early covers were these odd Big Dog Ink variants that were super low numbered (try and find one in the wild, I dare you). This is a $125 book now. Is this his first cover art?

9 Spider-Man Adventures #8

WRITER: Ethan Sacks
ARTIST: Will Sliney
Started slow, but has now picked up from $15, to $33, to now $60…and very few are available.  I don't know what the formula is for these Star Wars variants, but it does seem to repeat itself many times over.

    If you’re reading Daredevil you know it’s one of the most quality reads out there. Maybe Marvel’s close second to IH. And Cole North is a really inspired character. He’s gone toe to toe with DD, but they’ll probably kill him or something because, unless it’s a symbiote, Marvel doesn’t usually know what they have til it’s dead.

      I agree on DD being the best read out there at the moment, and even that Cole North may become something a little more than we expect, there’s something about his the law is the law attitude

      I’ve got DD and Venom (outside of WoTR) above IH.
      Regardless of preference, it’s nice to have all these titles delivering.

    So once again a 2nd print is selling higher than 1:25 & 1:50 variants… DD2. Really just because the characters on the cover… it’s still a 2nd print which is really a reprint in my book.

      I don’t care, I have been flipping those DD2’s like crazy. $15, 18, 35, prices went up all week.

        I think I bought one of your DD#2s SMHcomics! Thank you.
        That book was an absolute ghost in my area. I know people may shake their heads at it, but…
        1. I’m a fan of Checchetto & the cover is great.
        2. Love the series & Dect. North is an intriguing character. I feel like he’s here to stay.
        3. Again, even #2a was lightly ordered to begin with…the 2nd print #s should be crazy low.

      buy up cheap copies of the 1:50 when you can, might be another immortal hulk #2 situation where the incentive heats up months later after the main cover did

    Nice list with good variety.

    Only question would be Number 6? I see 5 international good sales for $30ish to 90ish
    in the last several months. Did I miss the $1400 sale?

    Animated Spider-man has sold well for me for years.
    Canto just looks like it has so much promise.
    Loved that Widow series years ago.

      You are looking at a German reprint for $30-40. The original rarely pops up. There is a whole run of this series going for $100-200 at the moment.

    You asked what may behind the driving force for Dark Avengers. Speculators out here in some of the live auctions and comic conventions I attend are speculating that some of the next characters being used in MCU are the Thunderbolts, but with a Dark Avengers-esque team. People are looking for both the 1st appearance of Thunderbolts in Hulk and the Dark Avengers in an attempt to be on the ground floor of a potential windfall. In an auction last week only two people were aware of the possible introduction of Phantasm you mentioned in top 10 and bid on the book knowing that tidbit, but everyone else in room is keying on the next MCU speculaton. That belief had people investing in books where the multiverse is mentioned in Marvel Books because of the next Spider-man film, but Mysterio is a character whose very power is misdirection. I am watching as everyone is assuming multiverse and driving those books up too. Some people see these books going up and do not want to miss out so other sites are mentioning this as fact or very likelihoods when no one is really sure just yet but they would rather be part of rush rather than missing out. They call could be ahead of the curve but Dark Avengers is the film people think might be the next Ant-Man sleeper hit.

    I picked up the Galaxy’s Edge for $10 this morning at the LCS. Is this a hold or flip book?

    Why the heat on Venom #3 third print but very little heat on the second print?
