The Weekend After Wednesday for 6/29/19


After a brief hiatus due to work events and vacation, Weekend After Wednesday is back!  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, 6/26/19. They could still be at your shop.

 

HOT

 

CANTO #1 (IDW) – While there was lots of chatter about this book before release, the prices that both the standard and variant were reaching was still a surprise.  The standard cover hit a height of $27 but seems to be settling a little lower at $18 shipped.  The 1:10 variant hit a height of $90 and has settled to a solid $60/$70.  It’s hard to say what this series will do and if prices will see another increase.  It’s already sold out at Diamond, so there’s still potential. 

MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #6 (MARVEL) – So, Wolverine’s daughter?  I don’t know.  Plenty of great Wolverine clones and offspring are relevant today.  Does this new one have any long term potential?  With the fear of missing out driving sales these days, it’s hard to tell if that is what this is.  Regardless, this is selling for a steady $50.  Issue #5, which features a cameo of this daughter, is also selling well at $25 shipped.  So, this should be a thing for at least a little while.

STAR WARS GALAXY'S EDGE #3 (OF 5) (MARVEL) – This 1:25 variant had one big sale of $60, followed with various sales around $15 to $30.  There are only a few listed as auctions and all seem to be moving well.  I’m interested to see how those sales end.  That will determine where this book goes.

ONE-YEAR LATER UPDATE

BATGIRL #24 MIDDLETON “B” VARIANT (DC) After Batgirl #23, everyone was on top of this variant last year.  It was selling for $13 shipped.  It’s held over decently at $10 shipped.

BLOODSTRIKE #23 LIEFELD “THE POUCH” VARIANT (IMAGE) – Last year this was selling for $15 shipped and now sells from $5 to $17 shipped.

CHAMPIONS #19 & #20 CONNECTING 2NDPRINTS (MARVEL) – One year ago, this 2nd print set sold from $30 to $40 shipped.  Today, these go for $15.

MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #32 (MARVEL) – This 1st appearance of PRINCESS FISK went for $13-$16 shipped.  Today it sells for $10.

MARVEL #31 HANS VARIANT (MARVEL) – This hard to find variant last year sold for $19 shipped. Today it sells for $12.

TEEN TITANS SPECIAL #1 (DC) – One year ago, we debated Lobo’s Daughter CRUSH making a brief cameo in this book.  It sold for $12-$15.  As this book is now mostly ignored, it now sells for cover price.

VENOM #3 1:25 MOLINA VARIANT & 1stPRINT (MARVEL) – Knull is still hot one year later.  The 1:25 variant sold for $108 last year and sells for $100 today.  The first print was selling for $15 and now sells for $35 to $40 shipped.

WARM

 

TRANSFORMERS GHOSTBUSTERS #1 (IDW) – The best-selling cover belongs to the Virgin Clayton Crain cover, limited to 300 copies.  These had a $39.99 buy in and are selling for $60.  The 1:50 is selling for a tad over ratio at $60.  The other variants are selling under ratio and the standard editions are selling for cover price.

COOL

 

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO CORTEZ & FRESHMAN FORCE WHO DIS 2ND PRINT (DEVILS DUE) – The 2nd print can’t match the heat that the 1st print… which has been cooling.

AMPED #1 (RED GIANT)

AT THE END OF YOUR TETHER #1 (OF 3) (LION FORGE)

BATMAN DAMNED #3 (OF 3) (DC) – Batman Damned is back!  While this isn’t moving, as Ben mentioned in the Top 10, #1 is selling well again.

BATMAN LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH #1 (OF 3) 2nd PRINT (DC)

CROW HACK #1 (IDW) – While these aren’t doing anything, as a Crow fan, I might just have to break down and buy the awesome Brandon Lee “Den of the Damned Comics” variant.

MAJOR X #6 (OF 6) (MARVEL)

MARILYN MANOR #1 (IDW)

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #40 (BOOM) – There was a lot of build up and expectation for this issue.  With all that heat, these are all selling under ratio.  I’m not a Power Ranger expert but after reading the spoilers it seems like the twist is tied deep into the Rangers history and maybe only relevant for the super fans. 

OPERATION OVERLORD #1 (REBELION)

PRINCESS OF VENUS #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)

ROAD OF BONES #1 (OF 4) 2ND PRINT (IDW)

ROCKY & BULLWINKLE SEEN ON TV #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)

SAMURAI GRANDPA #1 (SOURCE POINT)

SOULFIRE VOL 8 #1 (ASPEN)

SPAWN #298 (IMAGE)

SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1 (MARVEL) – There was some early expectations that the 1:50 Armstrong variant might see some heat.  Unfortunately, this one was a bit of a bust as it’s only selling for $20.

SPIDER-MAN REPTILIAN RAGE #1 (MARVEL)

STAR WARS AOR DARTH VADER #1 (MARVEL)

STEEL CAGE #1 (AHOY)

STREET FIGHTER NECRO & EFFIE #1 (UDON)

SUPERMAN LEVIATHAN RISING SPECIAL #1 2ND PRINT (DC)

WAR OF REALMS NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #2 (MARVEL)

WEATHERMAN VOL 2 #1 (IMAGE)

WHITE WIDOW #2 (RED GIANT)

WOLVERINE EXIT WOUNDS #1 (MARVEL) – The 1:50 Liefeld variant ranges from a height of $51 and a low of $25.  Copies are selling mostly around $30 to $40.

    Samurai Grandpa #1 is cool? Selling for above cover with sales in the $8-$9 range. Also, it is sold out at Diamond and the print run is micro, my guess is under 2500. Canto #1 is a IDW release so no surprise it was hyped and pushed at release. Just curious how a book that has buzz, like Samurai Grandpa, is cool ?!

    Yeah, it’s cool in price. If it has sales of $8 or $9 and then plenty of copies available at cover (like this had on Friday night when I wrote it), then I couldn’t justify having it in hot. To your point, I could have put it under warm specifically due to buzz and some of those decent sales.

    Plenty of copies available at cover? Tfaw was sold out before release, midtown had a limit of 1 before release, and the same for mycomicship. Now midtown is the only one with copies available (limit one), and there are a total of 7 copies available on eBay all above cover. Very rare book. However, I do agree that unless other sites talk it up it might fade into oblivion. Having read the entire run, as it was a kickstarter a few years ago, I can say it is a wonderfully written story with stunning art. I know the writer has written additional content already so I personally hope there is more interest in the book moving forward. I also preordered quite a few Canto #1s so I am pleasantly surprised with the returns. But the book will have to get A LOT better to be a better story then Samurai Grandpa. IMO
