Two books to talk about – Before we start this post is filled with Spoilers. So be warned.
Walking Dead #83 – This book has shot up in price since sunday nights episode of walking dead. In the opening episode of the midseason premier, Carl was shot in the face mimicking this scene from the comic book.
In Short, Carl was shot, but as the comic shows, he’ll be fine. This book has doubled in price last week selling for $15 to $20, today hitting $30 to $40 and on the rise. This is a book to be looking for! Another book that should hold speculation value is the awakening of Carl.
Walking Dead #87 – Where Carl wakes up and asks Rick where his mother is, forgetting the previous five years of the zombie apocalypse. This book is currently a $10 book but has a lot of potential for growth depending on how AMC plots out this season.
The other big spoiler news from this week involves Cable and Deadpool #38 – This is the first appearance of Hydra Bob – a character who briefly appeared in the Deadpool film and who (in the comic book) will not die and appears in Deadpool’s more popular story lines (Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool MAX). This character’s appearance in the film demonstrated there was a long backstory between Deadpool and Bob, which helps highlight the potential of speculation on his first appearance. Last week this book was in the dollar bin. And in many unlooted comic book stores, they still are. Since the films release, this book has been selling for $15 to $30. For a character that appeared in the film for 30 seconds, it’s kind of crazy; but it demonstrates the comic juggernaut that is the Deadpool film.
Another big jump was Cable and Deadpool #1, a book that was sold on average for $20 since my last post, has now sold between $40 to $100, with multiple sales at the $100 level. Another book still very undervalued is the first appearance of Weasel in Cable #3.
Why is Cable #3 undervalued? Of all the characters appearing in the Deadpool film, this is the character with the biggest connection to Wade Wilson. He gave Wade his code name and is quickly becoming Deadpool’s side kick. This character has the potential to appear in future X-men films alongside with or without Deadpool. At $10, this book has a lot of room to grow.
