Mad Money: 2014 Roundup

Heres some books on the move that I just haven’t spoken about from the last few weeks. Christmas times means most people are on vacation so comic book speculation is minimal.

Everyone seems to be noticing Swamp Thing 50 – First Justice League Dark, and the surrounding issues also seem to be selling in the $10 to $10+ arenas – with Swamp Thing #49 hitting well above $30. These have been easily found for cover or less for the decade.


Batman #417 is another book that is steadily rising. Hitting $10 – $20 when in condition.

Another book that has gone up in value based on TV- Speculation, this one surrounding CW’s Arrow, Flash #92 – First appearance of Impulse. This book has been steadily increasing the past month or two, but now it seems to be selling in the $20+ range.

Word?! Weird War Tales #93

First and foremost big shout out to 1Tommyg69 – for giving me this tip!

LT. Matthew Shrieve the only human member of the creature commandos has been cast and will be appearing in the third season of Arrow! That means in a few weeks this character will appear on the tiny screen for the first time. Already his first appearance has skyrocketed in value – Weird War Tales #93 – The first appearance of the Creature Commandos (and Lt. Matthew Shrieve)

Two months ago this book sold for $10 – $15 with one 9.8 sale four years ago for $200. NOW, the book is averaging $60 – $80 and is only going higher.

This is a book to find before people realize its potential.

Again, big ups to 1Tommyg69 – for giving me this tip! Got a tip? Leave a comment below!

December Lootcrate Reminder

The December Lootcrate is only going to be available for purchase for the next 12 hours.
This crate comes with an exclusive Batman Variant for Batman #36 and it comes with an exclusive POP Figure of a Batman bombed Joker, (picture below)


Screen shot 2014-12-18 at 9.36.21 PM

Depending on if you are located in Canada or the US the lootcrate could cost you $30 or $20. However, the funko pop is already selling for $30+ and the book is already selling for $20.

This should be a no brainer.

Tomorrow sees the release of two new Image Display Logo Variants and the Marvel 2015 Free Calendar. Usually I wouldn’t ignore freebees however, these calendars feature five different S.H.I.E.L.D. television TV-Show Trading Cards.
Screen shot 2014-12-17 at 1.07.54 AM
This set of all five cards could easily sell for $5 in a few weeks when the new SHIELD comic comes out – They feature Colson, May, Fitz, Skye and Simmons.

Do yourself a Favour: Lootcrate

Lootcrate is a company that makes subscription lootbags – with one general bag of goods each month. Sometimes they have exclusive items, like the famed Groot Funko Pop glow in the dark see-through figure. This Month’s loot bag has another Funko Marvel Pop figure, and an exclusive Batman Comic with a Greg Capullo Cover, Batman #36. This will have a high print run, but as with all batman variants, it will be sought after. Comicsalliance published this picture earlier today.

BMCv36LootCrate-e0769Again, this months Lootcrate features a still unannounced Marvel Funko Pop, so this box is filled with value!




This is probably old news, but this book came out two years ago, is a NEW 52 book, and has gone up in value based on the Flash TV-Show.

DC New 52: Flash Annual #2


This is apparently the first time Hal Jordan and Barry Allan appear together in the New 52 – and has been selling online for $40+.

Also – just a reminder, this book comes out this week and is awesome! #BURR


Expect a Image Logo Update once I find the Rumble #1 Logo Variant that comes out this week (thanks Steve @ Amazing Heroes!)

Burr: Amazing Spider-Man #11 Variant / Skybound Mystery Box Update

Its cold outside and Marvel Comics knows it. Thats why they’ve teamed up with Young Money’s Birdman and have announced a custom variant cover to ship next week – in the same vein as the Daredevil / Punisher energy Drink Variants and the Captain America No Flex Zone Variant.


This book is cool for a few reasons, for one it has the King Pin signing Birdman to what can only be assumed is a Disney record contract, and two, the current Lil Wayne / Birdman controversy has no end in sight! Every week there seems to be a new news story. (Lil Wayne wants off his record contract and Birdman AKA Baby AKA Stuntaman AKA CEO Owner of Lugz won’t let him)

Amazing Spider-Man #11 1 Per Retailer Variant 

This book has already sold on Midtown comics website for $80! No copies have sold on ebay yet, but this could be a first to the market scenario where if you are able to secure a copy you might be able to double or triple your money. This is a one-per store variant – so you will want to contact your LCS store.

Also, This is “old news” but still pretty interesting. Was posted on Bleedingcool a few days ago – This book is the first appearance of Daisy Johnson who has recently appeared on the SHIELD TV-Show. Now this book is selling for upwards of $30+ so start digging out your copies!
