Batman: THE DAMNED

The last few days every speculation related website or social media group has been focused on DC censoring future issues of Batman the Damned #1. DC’s Batman the Damned #1 features full frontal nude panels of Bruce Wayne – which has been reported on by many mainstream media outlets including the Guardian and TMZ. Batman the Damned #1 has a print-run of just over 100,000 and both covers have been selling for $25 to $30 online.
There is also a retailer proof edition of this book that was sent to retailers in July. This book only features the artwork and has no text. Online it has been selling for $60 to $100.


SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. In 2006 Marvel revamped their Marvel Knights imprint and started to publish high-quality mature limited series. The Marvel Knights imprint published stories that took place outside of the current Marvel Universe. One of those series was Spider-Man Reign. When the first issue of Spider-Man Reign was released marvel sent out a content advisory to retailers and stated the book was 100% returnable based on its content. This was because one of the panels included a nude adult spider-man. Like Batman the Damned #1, Spider-Man Reign #1 was not recalled by the publisher, however, the nude panel was removed from all subsequent printings. A few years ago this book would regularly sell for $10+. There are currently copies of this book for sale online at cover price.

Week in Review: September 19

I touched one some hot books this week on the latest episode of the Comic Book Scalping weekly podcast but here are some books that are selling well online that I didn’t talk about.

This week sees the release of Edge of Spider-Geddon #3. This book was released on the coattails of last months release of Edge of Spider-Geddon #2, which featured the first appearance of Mechanical Venom. A few days after release, the two cover set of Edge of Spider-Geddon #2 was selling online consistently for $25. Both books are currently selling for $5 to $10 each.
Edge of Spider-Geddon #3 features the first appearance of Uncle Ben as Spider-Man. There are two covers for this book and both have been selling for $7 to $10. I doubt either of these books will stay at these prices but right now there is some great quick flip potential.

This week also sees the first appearance of Xandra. Xandra is the daughter of Professor Xavier and Lilandra Neramani, the Empress of the Shi’ar Empire. Xandra first appears in this weeks Mr and Mrs. X #3. While the regular cover has been selling well, it hasn’t been selling above cover whereas The 1:25 Terry Dodson variant for Mr. and Mrs. X #3 has been getting a lot of attention selling for $50 to $60 online.

Another book that comes out this week that you should look at picking up is the new Keenspot book, Junior High Horrors #1, the first issue of the four part mini-series. Junior High Horrors has four covers, all four covers homage classic horror movie posters – three of the covers were open order to retailers and one was a ratio variant. The Junior High Horrors #1 Cover B (the exorcist poster homage) has been selling on ebay for $12 while the 1 in 5 ratio cover has been selling for $25 online. As of writing this post, all four covers are still available on the keepspot website.

Thanks Jack Demayo for pointing this out.

This week Entertainment Weekly released promotional images from the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. The DC.Marvel.Jpg instagram account did a really good job of breaking down which characters appear in these images.

Captain Marvel’s Star Force (Week in Review September 12)

This week sees the release of Venom First Host #3. If you havn’t been following the story, Venom gave Eddie Brock his infant symbiote child to raise for safe keeping. In this issue, Venom’s child fuses with Eddie Brock. This has caused a flood of sales on the first appearance of Venom’s infant symbiote. While this book hasn’t been selling above cover it is a good book to be picking up and holding on to. The first appearance and origin of Venom’s infant symbiote is Venom #165 from April of 2018. This book has two covers.

A book that comes out this week and has been selling well online is Redhood and the Outlaws #26 cover B. Online, This book has been selling for double to triple cover.

Last week Entertainment Weekly released some production images from the Captain Marvel movie. This week a “scene description” was leaked from the Captain Marvel movie set in California. This leak showed that the Starforce Team would have a big role in the Captain Marvel film. The first appearance of the Starforce team is Avengers #346. Some people are speculating on the first appearances of the various members of Starforce, I will expand on this in a later post.
