The Day After Wednesday for 8/24/17


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, 8/23/17. They could still be at your shop.

HOT

 



This week’s entries are pretty warmish “Hot” books in a pretty quiet week:

BATMAN THE SHADOW #5 (OF 6) MATTINA VARIANT (DC) – This was a strong seller for the week.  It’s getting $9 to $12 shipped.   What’s surprising is how few copies there are currently listed.  Retailers have been WAY under ordering “B” variants.  Seeing how few copies of these that there were at my LCS, I’m guessing this is another “B” variant that will do well.

SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER #3 1:15 BURT REYNOLDS VARIANT (IMAGE) – This cover was selling frequently at $20.  It JUST saw a jump up to $35 shipped.  My store has one.  I just can’t.

WEAPON X #7 (MARVEL) – What’s weird is that these were everywhere yesterday.  I went to several shops with multiple copies on the shelf… and no one grabbing them.  It’s selling decently at about $10 shipped.  Like the Batman Shadow Mattina, these aren’t earth shattering returns, just kind of “meh”.  This will increase the more TAH #22 goes up.

DARK NIGHTS METAL #1 (OF 6) (DC)

TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #22 (MARVEL) – This issue skipped right over the undercutter wave and survived price drops.  It’s currently getting between $20-$25.  A set with Weapon X #6 & #7 sold for $50.  There’s a lot of heat on this character and I really wish I found a copy.

WARM

 

ROBOTECH #1 2ND PTG (TITAN) – This is selling for about cover + shipping ($7).  This was another book that was hard to find.  Most of the copies I saw also had a lot of damage.

COOL

 



ANGRY BIRDS FURIOUS FOWL (IDW)

BETTIE PAGE #2 (DYNAMITE) – The 1:20 Lisner Virgin variant is selling at ratio of $20.  It could be worth grabbing if your LCS sells these cheap.  Mine tend to just sell them for cover.

CATALYST PRIME INCIDENTALS #1 (LION FORGE)

DONALD & MICKEY #1 (IDW) – It’s interesting that there are no retailer incentives for these Disney titles any more.  The early Micky and Disney Stories IDW variants perform well on eBay.  I wonder why IDW stopped doing them?  It’s too bad.  They were great.

GENERATIONS UNWORTHY THOR & MIGHTY THOR #1 (MARVEL) ROSS VARIANT – This Alex Ross 1:50 variant is selling for $30.  I expect that you will be able to buy a full set for cheap when this run is finished.

HARD PLACE #1 (OF 5) (IMAGE) – The B&W variant saw one sale of $20.  However, there are similar AND cheaper priced copies on eBay and none are moving.

HI-FI FIGHT CLUB #1 (OF 4) (BOOM)

LAND THAT TIME FORGOT FROM EARTHS CORE #1 (AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY)

LADY DEATH MERCILESS ONSLAUGHT #1 – The standard issue and variants aren’t doing much.  But, the Lady Death store covers are doing decently.  What’s up with Lady Death lately?  There seems to be a bit of resurgence and interest in the character.  The “Spawn” SDCC, Foil and Virgin variants are selling like crazy.  Anywho…. the Naughty variant for this title is selling for $55.  They cost $40 on the site.  A full 6 book variant set, with the Turner foil, costs $80, which seems decent.  The Tuner variant also has 6 or 7 different variants for this title, including the SDCC pearl edition.

MANHUNTER SPECIAL #1 (DC)

NIGHTWING THE NEW ORDER #1 (OF 6) (DC)

STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL #1 (MARVEL)

WAR MOTHER #1 (OF 4) (VALIANT)

Z NATION #5 PARILLO 1:25 VIRIGIN VARIANT (DYNAMITE) – I’m putting this one in here specifically for Mel V.  While it’s cool, that’s ONLY because there are no listings and one pre-sale at $9 from last week.  The other 1:25’s in this series are incredibly hard to find.  I asked my LCS if they were getting any variants and they mentioned that they didn’t even order 1 copy.  Next to the super limited Red Sonja virgin covers, these are probably the hardest Parillo variants to find.
