Variant Heat Check for 5/31/2018

 

TITLE : Batgirl #23 Middleton Cover B Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS:

Hundreds of sales in the past week ranging from $15-$40 make this the hottest book of week, and possibly the cover of the year. People who ordered multiple copies online should be receiving their orders soon, so expect a decline in prices (it’s already happening), but $20 for a $4 book is amazing. Just like this cover.

 

TITLE :Black Panther #1 Capes & Cowl “Oakland” Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS:

I don’t really like promoting store variants anymore, especially with prices continuing to escalate and artists now selling “directly” to fans, not to mention a decline in the quality of the artwork (which is the main reason why we buy variant covers). But this book has become quite the story, as people lined up in Oakland outside of Capes & Cowl comics to score a copy of this Oakland centric variant. Copies are slowly trickling out and selling for around $125.

 

TITLE : Ultimate Death of Spider-man #159 1:20 Cho Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS:

Frank Cho doesn’t get enough credit. He’s killing it on the Harley Quinn covers, and he was a super nice guy when I met him last year. A lot of his covers don’t sell for much, but this one is gaining steam. A couple of months ago, an auction ended under $100. Now the last 2 raw sales were $160 and $180.

 

TITLE : Captain America #6 Epting Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS:

I always figured that after Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit theaters this book would be dead in the water. Here we are, over 4 years later and people are still buying up this book. Raws are getting $40, while a 9.8 hit $185.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.
