The initial print run of this book has sold out at the distributor and it has been selling online for $10+. This has the potential to be the book of the week.

Today news came out from the Hollywood reporter that Lionsgate entertainment had signed on to turn the image series Analog into a motion picture. Analog is an on-going series from Image Comics that currently has two issues. Analog #1 has two covers and a C2E2 convention variant cover.
This week sees the release of a Joshua Middleton cover that has already had peak presales of above $40. Batgirl #23 Cover B is the book to buy this week. It is currently selling for $22. As more copies hit the market the price will go down but I wouldn’t be surprised if this continued to be a $10+ book.
This week also sees the release of Champions #20. While it has not been selling above cover, this book has been receiving some heat as it features the first full appearance of Snowguard.

As interest grows for Image’s new series Magic Order it is worth noting the first appearance of this series is the very hard to find Magic Order ashcan. The Magic Order #1 (Out June 13 2018) is the first issue to the new Mark Millar Netflix book – the first netflix imprint comic that was given out through a lottery system at the 2018 C2E2 Comic Convention.
I don’t think this book has a very long shelf light or has long term hold potential but right now there is one book that comes out this week that has been selling for double to triple cover price. Scooby Apocalypse #25, the more “adult” Scooby Doo DC title, features the death of Mystery Inc. Co-founder Fred Jones. This book has two covers, a regular cover A and a virgin art cover B, both have sold out at the distributor level and have been selling well online. One online retailer sold 20 copies of cover A for $8 each.
