Trades Secrets #33
Hello agents. The past two weeks have been fast and furious for the Newton household, but I’ve still found time to dig through some current intel and find some actionable data. I always learn something new when I research trade paperbacks. Let’s dive in, learn, and have some fun.
Volume 11 of the GI Joe Classic collection recently sold for a nice premium. I highlighted volume 15 in the past (it’s still the best one to find), but there are several others in the run that make for great flips. Volume 11 is one of those. It sold recently for $60
Volume 11 collects GI Joe #101-110.
If you ever find this one in the wild don’t pass it by. This is the 1992 Blind Justice Retailer Seminar Edition. It is rare. It was given away at the same seminar as the Todd McFarlane Spider-Man Torment TPB. According to my research, these books are the first RRP editions (AKA variants). It sold last week for $75.
This TPB collects Detective Comics #598-600 with the covers and ads intact.
The last few issues of Lone Wolf and Cub are hard to find. So is the omnibus that reprints those issues, volume 12. It sold recently for $80.
This trade continues to sell at premium prices. It is out of print and in high demand. The most recent selling price I found was $125. That is actually the lowest selling price of the past two weeks.
Volume 1 (Children of the Atom) collects Uncanny X-Men 1st Series #1-23.
My research this past week proved to be entertaining and valuable. I hope you found it that way as well.
Agent Newton out.
