Week in Review: June 29

This week there are two books to be looking for.

The first one has been heavily discussed on many speculation websites. Marvel’s Press department has been working overtime the past few weeks trying to let everyone know they were introducing a new character, Mosaic, debuting this week in Uncanny Inhumans #11. This book has a 1:25 variant cover, a Marvel 80 Years variant and a regular cover. All of which have been sold out on Diamond for some time. Currently, the 1:25 variant cover has multiple sales at the $130 mark, with the regular cover $10 to $15. This book will likely go down in value but has great pump and dump value if you can secure copies this week and list them online.

Another book that has been heating up this week is Invincible Iron Man #7 from 2016. This book has been selling for a few dollars above cover and is the first appearance of Riri Williams – the new war machine. Depending on how Marvel uses this character after its new Civil War II event – this first appearance could really have some legs. This will be the first appearance of a new Marvel character who just happens to be a strong black woman in the Iron Man outfit. Call me crazy but this character is going places! Update:  (there is also a second print with a very low print run and colour variation cover that should also see some interest).
UPDATE: A CGC 9.8 copy sold on June 27 for $150 USD. This book is on FIRE.

Oh Word? Silver Sable

Here’s a book that has been selling for $10 to $15 for the past few months, Amazing Spider-Man #265 – The first appearance of the Silver Sable. However, today the book has been selling for quite a bit more.  Today Amazing Spider-Man #265 has been selling for $25 to $30 with three CGC 9.8 sales. One sold for just under $100, Later one sold for $125, after that one sold for $200. So Why the sudden interest in the Silver Sable?

In a recent interview (June 23), Tom Rothman, Sony Movie Chief, stated he was planning on building a Spider-Man Universe with Marvel. Since Sony and Marvel have recently come to arrangements with each other over the rights of Spider-Man it seems some of Sony’s previously leaked plans (in the hacked Sony E-mails) might still be in play.

When Sony’s studio was hacked and all of their private e-mails released to the public most fans focused on the big news that Spider-Man would be appearing in Civil War. However, some fans also found e-mails talking about Sony’s Plans on doing a solo Silver Sable film in the Spider-Man Universe through building a Spider-Man cinematic Universe at Sony. Most of this was thought to have been scrapped when the news that Sony was giving the rights to Spider-Man back to Marvel was announced, however, it appears that Sony still has plans for building this new Spider-man Cinematic Universe. As Confirmed by Jeff Snider on his podcast  Meet the Movie Press, Sony is still working on a solo Silver Sable film and are even trying to sign screen writer Abi Morgan onto the project.

I would expect to be hearing about the Silver Sable for some time as this book has no where to go but up. There is also a second printing (it has a silver cover) that should see an increase in interest.

AND REMEMBER
The Aspen Justice League #1 Variant Cover featuring art by Micheal Turner and featuring a Black and White Sketch cover goes on presale Sunday June 26 at 9 am Pacific on Aspencomic.com – Like the Aspen Batman #1 This book will be in high demand upon release and will sell out on prerelease. Don’t sleep on this!

Oh Word? Pilot Season Demonic #1?

Something that went under the radar when first announced but seems to have picked up some steam is Demonic #1 from 2009. Demonic was one of the Topcow Pilot Season titles, which were five different #1 issues from Kirkman and Silvestri with the intention of continuing one title based on public opinion and voting. Hardcore was one of the other titles in the 2009 Pilot Season run. Skybound announced last month that they were picking up the Demonic title with a new creative team of Chris Sebela with art by Nico Walter and Dan Brown. Comichron reports the original Pilot Season: Demonic #1 had a print run of under 10,000 – which is probably what has resulted in the title currently selling for $20 to $25 in VF+/NM- condition. This is a book to look for – but don’t look at it as something with any holding value, this book only has quick flip potential.

Another book to look for is the Pilot Season 2009 #1 – This book was already HEAVILY speculated on as it was the first appearance of Hardcore. Well it also happens to feature a preview for Demonic making it the first appearance of Demonic. Like Demonic #1, this book is also starting to pick up steam.

Hollyweird Catchup

I haven’t done a Hollywood post in a little while so this post will start with some new news and end with some catch-up information. Four titles to look for!

News came out today that the third season of the Flash CW TV-Show would be based around the DC Flashpoint story line with its own take on the original source material. It was also hinted that Arrow and Supergirl, both CW TV-Shows, would also appear in the Flash point third season. Flashpoint #1 first print has been heating up on its own in the past two months, selling for $15 to $25 respectivel. However, since the TV show news more copies are selling around $25 and the retailer incentive variant cover is selling upwards of $50. These two books have a lot of room to grow in the coming weeks. (The SDCC Variant for Flashpoint #1 is still available for $10 – It has not been performing as well on the secondary market as the first print cover A, however, it has great potential for growth)


Another book that has already been preforming well on the secondary market that is sure to benefit from this Flash News is the Flash Point Reverse Flash #1 one-shot. This book has been selling for $10.However, this book has the most potential for growth as there is no Flash Point without Reverse Flash and since this is the Flash TV-Show this character has a very high likely hood of showing up.

The Kitchen was a title that was published by Vertigo / DC in 2014. This week it was picked up by New Line Cinema to be adapted for film. This has resulted in the Kitchen #1 selling for two to three times cover. This is a book that can still be found in many back issue bins!

Another book that has been selling for triple cover price is Titan Comics Surface Tension #1. This book came out in February of 2015, became a mini series, now just announced a few weeks ago it’s being picked up for television adaptation.

The last book to be looking for is Scarlet from Icon / Marvel Comics. Scarlet was Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev’s creator owned title that has released nine issues since 2011. This book has apparently been picked up by HBO/ Cinemax. While Scarlet #1 started selling for $90 when this news broke is has started to cool off selling on average for $25. Almost every issue of Scarlet can still be found in the wild and all issues under 5 are selling for $10+. While this isn’t a book I would be holding onto it has great quick flip potential.

Week In Review June 19

This has been a weird week. This week Justice League 51 came out and some stores reported receiving weird variant covers (as first written by Comic book Invest).

This “weird variant” was a Justice League #51 with the solicited cover of Justice League #52. This book was rumored to have been shipped to stores whom have reported damages to Diamond early Monday. However, this is just a rumor. Also, all Justice League #52 copies received at Barnes and Nobles in the US received these Justice League #51 variant covers, except they have the $4.99 price tag (comic store copies have a $3.99 price). While this book had started selling for up to $150, it has now started to cool off selling around $40, which isn’t bad for a $3.99 or $4.99 book.

IMG_0005
Does this book have any further potential or will it continue to fall down in price? This book, like the Rai #2 Mask Variant, has been recalled by the distributor giving it long term value.

X23 continues to dominate eBay back-issue sales. Two books very attainable in the wild are X-Men #450 / #451 – the first meeting of X23 and Wolverine. These books together seem to fetch upwards of $35 in near mint condition and if X23 does appear in the new Wolverine film (all signs point to no) this book will have great long term power.


These two books were reprinted together included with the 2001 X23 Marvel Legends Collector Action Figure making it very hard to find in high grade.


Happy Speculating and Remember not to give any of your hard earned money to Larrys Comics.

Week in Review: June 8

The last two weeks have been crazy for DC speculation. All rebirth titles seem to be selling online for over cover. It seems the Wonder Woman Rebirth #1 variant is the book to be looking for, however, almost every Rebirth title that has been released this month has sold above cover in the last few days.

Screen shot 2016-06-08 at 9.27.11 PM
As pointed out by CHU, the book to look for this week is Norman #1 from Titan comics. With multiple sales (pre-sales from last week) averaging $1o to $15 – this seems to be the book to be looking for. What many people don’t realize is that this is the THIRD volume of Norman. The first two volumes also released by Titan were released as TPB’s (still available on Amazon and other online retailers). If Norman has good content and grows a following the book to be looking for is Norman Volume #1 from 2015 released as a 64 page hardcover.

This is the book to be looking for.

GOTG 2 / HAIL HYDRA

This week news came out about who the apparent villain in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. This character has been hinted at appearing in the past however now we have confirmation. The reveal being that the villain will be Kismet AKA Paragon AKA Ayesha – but more known as “her” – the female warlock. Adam Warlock was suggested as appearing in the films and this confirms that something is happening with his character – as both characters were designed in labs by the same person. An argument could be made that they are a family unit that will be appearing together in the upcoming film. Details haven’t completely come out yet as to how the character will be used but there are more than a few books to be looking for based on this news.

My Adam Warlock GOTO and run-down books to look for-post can be found here.

Ayesha (or Her) first appeared in Hulk Annual #6 as Paragon (1977) and appeared as “Her”, the female answer to Adam Warlock’s “Him”,  in 1980’s Marvel 2-in-1 #61. Both of these books seem to be heating up online but can still be found for reasonable prices in the wild (just like the recent Justice League villain news of New Gods #7).

 

Another book that has been heating up quite considerably online in the past few days is the recent 2016 Marvel now – Captain America #1.

Screen shot 2016-06-02 at 10.21.49 PM

This book reveals that Captain America was actually a Hydra agent this entire time, which as you can imagine, has created a lot of outrage and calls for boycotts towards Marvel and the Marvel brand. Unsurprisingly, this book has gone to a third printing (remember ASM #1 of 2015 went to 7 printings) – and VERY surprisingly this book has started to heat up online. Selling on average $20 to $25 with some peak sales about $35 – and that is the regular cover – the variant covers are also selling for top dollar. This is a book that can still be found in the wild (it came out last week!) – so if you can find copies… it has great speculation value.
