The Day After Wednesday for 7/26/2017
Want to know which books from yesterday’s new deliveries are already heating up and which ones are cooling? Here’s a “Day 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, 7/26/17. They could still be at your shop.
SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #2 1:15 SCOTTIE YOUNG BABY NUDE VARIANT (IMAGE) – When a 1:15 is selling at $35 shipped, it’s definitely a hot book. Sure, I get it… it’s a naked baby with a beard fighting a bear. Okay. It bothers me a tad…. but I get it. This is a fricking weird week with comics and nudity.
STREET FIGHTER SWIMSUIT SPECIAL 2017 MORRIGAN “VAMPIRELLA HOMAGE” 1:10 VARIANT (UDON) – I actually really like this cover. I’ve seen the original Vampirella cover time and time again, but I’ve never really appreciated it. With Parillo brining some heat to Vampirella, I’m starting to pay attention to her first appearance. This is a great homage, especially when you’re also a Darkstalkers fan like myself. It’s selling for a consistent $20-25 shipped.
BATGIRL #13 MIDDLETON B VARIANT (DC) – DC’s B variants are definitely getting noticed. Speculators like us look to upcoming releases that have great art. This is no exception. This is selling for about $8 to $9 shipped. I don’t think this will go much higher. However, thanks to the scarcity of most of these B variants, this could do well years from now.
BETTIE PAGE #1 BLACK BAG EDITION (DYNAMITE) –Dynamite released their black bag “nude” variant today. It’s selling between $9 and $20. Current listings seem to be showing favor towards the $20 price, but it’s not quite there yet. Bettie Page is the Queen of pin-ups and has a huge fan base. Some of these hard to find variants could do well when Bettie collectors wise up to this current comic’s release. I personally like the Linsner 1:20 virgin variant the best from last week (which sells for $10).
SAVAGE DRAGON #225 25TH ANNIVERSARY XXX KRASH VARIANT (IMAGE) – Wow. Just…..wow. This book probably made Boundless blush. It’s easily the most scandalous cover of a well-known comic character. This book also has a very heavy buy in price of $11.99. Sales are ranging all over from $16 to $25 (before shipping). There are about 20 copies currently listed, which I wouldn’t quite call a flood. I honestly don’t know if this is worth flipping. After tax, you’re almost at break even. Even long term, I think there are enough copies out there for Dragon fans to find for their collections.
WEAPON X #6 (MARVEL) – Until it was pointed out by one of our readers (thanks invinciblelatin), this book slipped past me. It’s been selling for mostly cover, but has also seen multiple sales hit as high as $10 (+shipping). My understanding is that this is the first time Batch H Wolverhulk is seen in action. Watch this book closely…. it could see more movement if this character takes off.
ALIEN BOUNTY HUNTER #1 (OF 5) (VAULT)
ALL NEW CLASSIC ARCHIE YOUR PAL ARCHIE #1 (ARCHIE)
BLOODSTRIKE #1 REMASTERED (IMAGE)
BPRD DEVIL YOU KNOW #1 (DARK HORSE)
CAPTAIN CANUCK #1 SEASON 3 (CHAPTERHOUSE) – “Canadians Assemble!” – Captain Canuck. I don’t know much about ol’ Cap. Canuck, but I do really like this cover.
FAITH AND THE FUTURE FORCE #1 (OF 4) (VALIANT)
FANTOMAH #1 (CHAPTERHOUSE)
GO GO POWER RANGERS #1 (BOOM)
HEAVENLY BLUES #1 (SCOUT)
JOHN CARPENTER TALES OF SCI FI VAULT #1 (OF 3) (VAULT)
SECRET EMPIRE #7 CAMPBELL VARIANT (MARVEL) – Campbell’s first America cover AND we’re definitely getting into the variants that are becoming harder to find due to lower issue orders. It’s selling for $30. Most of these Campbell variants have been hovering around that same price.
SIDEWINDER #1 (ANTARTIC)
TRANSFORMERS LOST LIGHT #8 WHALEN VARIANT (IDW) – This is a cool cover, but it’s not doing much right now. Granted, there’s only one listed and one sold. So, these Whalen variants could surprise us. I might just go grab the one I left behind at my LCS…. if it’s still there.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #72 WHALEN VARIANT (IDW) – This is facing the same issue as TF Lost Light, it’s just not selling. However, there are only two copies listed. Definitely keep an eye on these.
VAN HELSING VS THE WEREWOLF #1 (ZENESCOPE) – In review of this week, Zenescope is the classy option for T&A covers.
ZOJAQAN #1 (VAULT)
