This week sees the release of a two Joshua Middleton covers and a marvel chase variant.
Aquaman #39 comes out this week and it has a cover B variant by Joshua Middleton. The cover features Mera – a character that is appearing in the new Aquaman film. This book has sold out at the distributor level, meaning comic book stores can’t order any more copies – and it has been selling for $12 to $20 in presale online. It is currently selling for closer to $12.
Batgirl #25 also features a Joshua Middleton cover B Variant . While This book hasn’t been selling over cover price it been receiving a lot of attention online. The previous two Batgirl Middleton covers sell very well on the secondary market with the cover B variants for Batgirl #23 selling for $40 to $50 and Batgirl #24 selling for around $13. This is a book to be looking for this week.
Another book that came out this week in Infinity War #2. Infinity War #2 features a secret unannounced variant cover. It is believed to have been sent out by marvel in a 1 in 10 ratio. The last time Marvel did this was for Avengers #682 – which features two different variations of Hawkeye on the cover. The chase version of that book still sells for $8 to $9. I would expect that would be the same situation with this new variant.
This week sees the release of X-men Gold #30 – I am about to spoil this book so consider this a spoiler warning! This book was advertised as a Kitty Pryde / Colossus wedding issue but inside you’ll find that Kitty Pryde leaves Colossus at the altar and in a complete plot twist Gambit and Rouge end up getting married. The X-Men Gold #30 Secret J. Scott Campbell polybag variant is the only cover to show Gambit and Rouge getting married. This is a $4.99 book that has been selling for $8 to $10 online. It is very possible this book will be considered the first appearance of Mr. and Mrs. X – the new Gambit / Rouge series announced earlier today.
Another book to look for this week is the Josh Middleton cover B of Aquaman #37. This book has sold out at the retailer distributor level and has been selling for $8 to $10 online.
The last book to look for came out last week, Oblivion Song #4 Frog Variant. Skybound released a chase variant for Oblivion Song #4 that was inserted randomly into retailers orders – this variant has a frog on the cover. The Oblivion Song #4 frog variant has been selling steadily online for $10.
Riding on the coattails of Batgirl #23 Cover B, this week there has been a lot of interest in the Josh Middleton cover B for Aquaman and Jabberjaw #1. 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.
This week also sees the release of Uncle Scrooge #438 from IDW. For this issue IDW released a cover B variant by renowned comic artist Carl Barks. Carl Barks is a legendary comic artist was the original comic artist for Donald Duck and many of Duck family characters. This Cover B variant has been selling for $10+.
Another book that has started to sell well recently is He-Man Masters of the Universe #18. This book features the first DC comic appearance of She-Ra*. This book started seeing interest after the She-Ra netflix show was announced, now that production art has been released this book has had multiple sales around $20.
*She-Ra does appear on a variant cover before this, but this is the first comic issue she appears in
