Tuesday Morning Speculation

I didn’t do a post last week. Does that mean I’m going to do more posts this week? Perhaps.

Here are a few talking points,

Here is a book that hasn’t really been talked about since October when it was released, He Man – Thunder Cats #1. The First print of this book has two covers, both are selling well on the secondary market with the Cover B selling for $10 to $14 and Cover A selling for $20 to $25. There is also a second print and a coloring book variant that are not seeing any love online.

These are books that many stores sold out of upon release but is still under the radar enough that you might be able to pick up a few copies

While we’re on the subject of He-man. This New He-Man on Battle Cat Dorbz Funko is selling for $75 online but limited quantities are still available on the Funko site at a strict one per order for $25!

Monday saw Disney announce the name of the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi. This will be the eighth Star Wars film. Brought to my attention by Drew Lujan on CBSI, The Last Jedi first appeared in the Marvel comic book, Star Wars #49. This was also reported by Bleedingcool so expect sales of this book to start trending upwards while any copies in the wild start to dry up.

Last week saw the release of five retailer incentive variants. Unlike ratio variants these were variants sent to every retailer if they ordered any copies of a certain book. Image Comics Curse Words #1 Gold Foil Cover, Boom Studios WWE Gold Belt #1, Marvel Comics Monsters Island #1, Marvel Comics Mighty Captain Marvel #1 and the Batman TPB Jim Lee cover. Unlike the other retailer variants The Batman Jim Lee TPB was only sent to retailers that ordered 5 or more copies of the new Batman TPB. Many retailers still have single issues of these books which resulted in this trade paper back being under ordered and many stores did not receive this variant.

To my knowledge this is the first time DC has ever done a Trade Paper back. This book is currently selling for $50 to $100. Long term this will be a good book to be holding on to.

Quick Flip: God Country #1

I wasn’t going to write a post this week but something changed a few hours ago. This book started to trend up around 1 PM Eastern Central time today. Sold out on diamond another Image #1 is currently selling for $10 to $15.
That book is God Country #1 from Image Comics. This book has two covers and is trending up very quickly. If you can find copies there is money to be made. This is not a book I would be holding on to.

 

Not a lot going on this week except for that one book.

Week in Review January 4

This is my first post of the year and there is really only one book this week that you should be looking for.
Underworld: Blood Wars is a graphic novel sized comic that came out this week from Darkstorm Comics. This book has already sold out at the distributor and is becoming harder and harder to find online. This book has a 50/50 cover and both covers are photo covers promoting the film of the same name that was released to theaters this week.
Cover A has already sold online for $20 while the Cover B “Variant Cover” has sold for $30.


If early film reviews of Underworld: Blood Wars says anything its that you should not be holding on to this book.

Here are a few things I should have talked about last week but didn’t.

love is love came out last week and immediately started selling for $40, this was of course before retailers realized they had received second printings. Due to printing error that has been reported by almost every speculation site except mine, Love is Love seconds prints shipped out before the first prints to North America retailers. The second print has cooled down and is currently selling for $20+ while the few copies of the first print that have hit stores are selling for $35 to $40.
This book is being totted as the first appearance of Harry Potter but its really just a pin-up that was approved by Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling and CGC has decided not to indicate this book as the first appearance of Harry Potter on the comic book label.
Is there speculation value here? I would advice you to sell now and not hold onto this book. Long term this book is not going to be sought after.

Another book that has seen some interest is the new Saga comic book issue #41. This book due to a printing error where the book was printed too dark was recalled by the distributor and publisher. Now while this book is not currently selling well, this book will do well term in high grade CGC or CBCS copies. There is a market for recalled book, it just happens to be small.

Week in Review December 21

I’m talking about two books this week and they’re both variants.
The first one came out last week and I didn’t talk about it because honestly I didn’t realize it existed. Last week saw IDW release two Transformers Universe books, Optimus Prime #1 which I spoke about last week, and Lost Light #1. Both featured high ratio Paul Pope variant covers – and as with all transformers comic books, most retailers did not order this title or ordered very low quantities not qualifying them to receive the high ratio variants which has already drive up the price.

Two copies of The Lost Light #1 1:50 variant sold this week for $140 to $150. This book is on fire with no where to go but up and its definitely a book that should be on your radar.

A book that came out this week that you should be looking for is the 1:25 Marco Checchetto Gamora #1 variant cover. This book is starting to sell for $50 which is great for a 1:25 incentive variant cover. While this book will probably not hold at this price its a great book to be looking for this week for the quick flip.

Week in Review December 14

This week saw the release of Atoll #1 – the second comic book about a predator shark in the last few weeks. (the other being White #1 from Devils Due). Atoll is written by Tim Daniel of Enormous and has sold out on diamond and almost all online retailers. Selling on ebay for $20 to $25. Atoll is published by Creative Mind Energy and could be at your local comic book store.

Another book that came out this week that you should be looking for is the high ratio variant of the new Transformers comic book Optimus Prime #1. The Optimus Prime #1 1:50 Paul Pope cover selling for $60 to $70. This is a book to be watching as transformers books are notorious for low print runs and have a large niche collecting market. This book should have long holding value.

The big comic book news that came out this week was that the Harley Quinn Suicide Squad spin-off film produced by and starring Margot Robbie would be titled Gotham City Sirens and featuring both Poison Ivy and Catwoman as Harley Quinn love interests.

latest-1

The book Gotham City Sirens has exploded on ebay – raw copies of Gotham City Sirens #1 have sold for $50 to $90 with CGC 9.8 graded copies going for $190 to 250, with the J.G. Jones Variant $900 or best offer Buy it Now Auction selling just after the news broke – with the current lowest price copy sitting at $675.  This is book that has always been pricey in comparison to other modern books however it can still be found in the wild for under ebay completed sale prices!

WORD?!?! Guardians of the Galaxy NEW Character

I havn’t made a post in a few weeks mainly because it has been very slow this month. Not a lot of books to report on. Here is one book that should start seeing heat.

Today (December 1) James Gunn went to faceook to reveal a new character in the Guardians of the Galaxy film.

Screen shot 2016-12-02 at 2.05.22 AM.png
Meet Brahl – created in 1977 – a “minion of menace” and bad guy in Guardians of the Galaxy universe. This book will most likely see a small increase in value once news spreads of the characters introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. – That book is Thor Annual #6.
