Hollywood Daze (AGAIN?!): Empire of the Dead

hitlist

A lot of titles have been getting picked up for TV or movie developement lately so I try not to report on them unless the book starts exploding or is starting to heat up. On Thursday news came out that George Romero’s Empire of the Dead, published by Marvel, was being developed into a television series. On thursday copies of Empire of the Dead #1, (a three part mini-series told in “acts”) was a $10 book, and a signed CGC 9.8 SS that was on ebay for the last year finally sold for $200. Fast forward to today, raw copies of this book are selling for $50 to $150.

George Romero’s Empire of the Dead #1 has two variant covers a 1:25 Frank Cho and a 1:75 Arthur Suydam. Both of these books were hard to find when they came out because this book wasn’t ordered in that high of a number on initial release. Those are the books that are going to be the most sought after. Those and Signature Series George Romero. This is a book you don’t want to be holding onto right now because prices are getting crazy and they have a high potential of crashing.

Hollywood Daze: Mad Max Fury #1 Vertigo Comics

hitlist

Max Max Fury Road, the fourth film in the Mad Max Franchise has been released with very high praise. Two weeks after its initial release it is still at a 98% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This week Vertigo / DC have released a comic, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD: NUX & IMMORTAN JOE #1, a 40 page comic with creative input from Mad Max (and Happy Feet) creator George S. Miller.

The comic, like the film, has been flying off shelves and has already sold out at Diamond while selling for upwards of $25 on ebay! Currently the book is averaging between $15 – $18, which is a big jump from its $4.99 cover price. Buy them while you can! Last year when Django Unchained came out it became an impossible to find collectible driving up the prices on ebay. This book can still be found in limited quantities in the wild!

Word?!?! Vengeance #1 / Miss America

Screen shot 2015-05-21 at 11.40.24 PM

Miss America is a pre-Marvel character published in a variety of stories published by Timely Comics in the 40’s. Marvel being marvel has launched a new female avengers title, A-Force, where the storyline is based around the new Miss America, America Chavez.

The roaster of the A-Force Team is She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Singularity and Nico Minoru (From Runaways). While the storyline so far is based around America Chavez, it is assumed she will eventually join the team. Since the release of A-Force #1, copies of the first appearance of America Chavez, Vengeance #1 (2011) have virtually disappeared from the online marketplace. Gone are the days of last week when copies of Vengeance #1 would sell for $2 in near mint condition! This book is now selling for $10 – $20 in Very Fine to Near Mint condition and the Villains variant cover (Available on Milehighcomics for $4 in near mint condition last week!) has sold online for upwards of $40!

This book has a lot of potential of being in your local comic book stores back issue bins, while having just as much potential to lose all value by next week! This is not a book you should be holding on to!

Week in Review: Week of May 18

Screen shot 2015-03-30 at 3.40.18 PM

Now that everyone seems to be focusing on New Mutants, where the New Mutants #1 CGC 9.8 has more then doubled in price selling above $700 on auction! Now is not the time to be holding onto Marvel Graphic Novel #4s or New Mutants #1. In this week in review I’m going to talk about some other books I’ve ignored in the past few days that have seen upwards movement.

With Batman #40 selling out and the second print selling out before release, the second print, red cover has already been hitting the $10 price mark. If you can buy these for cover, a lot of potential to make some fast cash.

Captain Marvel #14 (2015) has been selling for between $15 and $35. This book involves the cross-over storyline Black Vortex, has roughly a 22,000 print run when compared to the 40,000 of the other cross-over stories. This book has a lot of potential to make a few bucks, with a high likelyhood of being at your local comic book store.

Another book to look out for is Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Volume 3 #3 – this book was recalled by Boom because the printer used the wrong paper stock, as with all recalled books there is a lot of holding potential. So far one has sold on ebay for $15.

IMG_0001

(As pointed out on the CGC Boards) A book that has broken out of the $10 group is Batman #567 – the first appearance of Cassandra Cain as Batgirl. This could be because of the current trend towards female superheros or it could be because of the recent speculation that the Batgirl in Batman: Arkham Knight’s upcoming Batgirl Downloaded-able content Batgirl story was either Cassandra Cain or Barbara Gordon. (The company producing the game has confirmed its Barbara Gordon). Either way this book has been selling for $20 – $35 in Near mint condition hitting above $20 in Very Fine plus. This is a book to look out for.

Hollywood Daze: Captain America : Civil War

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AM

Its only taken a good two years but the first Cameo and Full appearance of Crossbones, Captain America #359 and Captain America #360, are finally selling above $10.

Screen shot 2015-05-17 at 12.01.16 AM

This week a picture of Frank Grillo on set in costume as Crossbones hit the internet, and like Raccoons on garbage day, reasonably priced copies of the first appearance of Crossbones have been ravaged off ebay bringing the price up. Last sales for Captain America #359 and Captain America #360 have reached upwards of $50 in near mint condition, which is a huge jump from last week!
Pictures of one of the first scenes to be filmed for Captain America Civil War leaked online two days before the Crossbones news – it shows them filming a funeral scene. Could this mean Captain America dies? This week they are planning on filming a fight between Flacon and Crossbones. Another possibly sign that Captain America dies in the Civil War Film.
So what does that mean for speculation?
Now is the time to buy up Captain America #25 – the death and funeral of Captain America. If you’re going to buy CGC copies you will want to seek out Joe Simon SS – as those will hold a huge premium over all other copies.

Word?!?! White Canary / Legends of Tomorrow

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AM

The first trailer for the Arrow Spin-off show, titled “Legends of Tomorrow” was released on thursday. The team features The Atom, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Hawkgirl, Rip Hunter, Firestorm and White Canary. It was rumoured that Black Canary would appear in the show however with the trailer being released it is clearly White Canary.

Right now the book to look for is the first appearance of White Canary, Birds of Prey Volume 2 (2010) #1 (which has already been ravaged off ebay and other online comic marketplaces). This book has a stand cover, a variant cover as well as a second print variant. All should have a potential jump in value.

Holly-Very-Weird: New Mutants Movie

Screen shot 2015-04-08 at 10.37.19 PM

So What if #10 is already selling for $100 in raw NM condition and BleedingCool is even talking about it. But thats not the break-out news of the day. Today I read on Comicsheatingup that Fox has decided to spin a movie out of their X-Men Franchise based on The New Mutants. I thought it was a joke at first but can now confirm that Fox really is developing something based on the New Mutants, as confirmed by THR. This could be because of continued interest and the development within the Deadpool Film, also produced by Fox – so one can assume there will be easter eggs and the Deadpool movie will lead into the new FOX New Mutants film.

So what does that mean? There are two books you should be looking for that in the past 12 months have been slowing commanding a premium in high grade condition – selling for over Overstreet Guide prices. Now these two books are going to explode.

Marvel Graphic Novel V.1 #4 – (1982) – the first appearance of the New Mutants
Raw copies are selling for $60 – $100, which is more then double the $30 high this book had been getting before the recent FOX News. CGC 9.8 copies are selling for $350 with more then three selling on ebay today. This book is on fire.

14172

The New Mutants #1 (1983) – The first on-going series.
This book has dollar bin written all over it. This book is trending up, and will have a LOT of moving room!

Thanks to Zack for the great intel! Check out his ebay!
