Week in Review: Hollywood run down

Two things came out this week to take note of.

It was announced that Ann Weying would be appearing in the upcoming Venom film. In The Marvel Universe, Ann Weying becomes a female venom, She-Venom, this has led to the book she first appears in as She-Venom to sell for very high prices. Ann Weying first appears in Amazing Spider-Man #375 and becomes She-Venom in the Venom: Sinner Takes All series. She first becomes She-Venom in Venom:Sinner Takes All #2 and appears on the cover of Venom: Sinner takes all #3. While ASM #375 hasn’t really been selling (this book has a very high print run), Venom: Sinner Takes All #3 has been selling for up to $100 in raw near mint condition online. While Venom: Sinner Takes All #3 has been a sought after book in high grade  for the last few years, this week this news has blown this book up. Two things to think about – Will the real first appearance of She-Venom start to go up? Has She-Venom been confirmed for the movie?

 

Another announcement that started as a rumor last week but has since been confirmed is the Umbrella Academy TV-Show announcement. The Hollywood Reporter came out with the news this week that Netflix ordered a 10 episode series for Gerard Way’s Umbrella Academy. Umbrella Academy first appears in the Dark Horse 2007 FCBD book. While this book hasn’t been getting a lot of attention the ratio variants for Umbrella Academy #1 have been (as well as the Volume 2 RRP). Another thing to keep note of is that the Gerad Way signed and graded copies will see a stronger demand down the road – Gerad Way has always been a hard to acquire signature, only attending a handful of conventions.

Week in Review: May 30 2018

There is really only one book to be looking for this week, Spawn Directors Cut 1 Per Store Retailer Appreciation Variant. This book features the Spawn #227 cover with a new coloring and with silver foil logos. This book was sent to every diamond account retailer making the print run 2 to 3 thousand. This book is currently selling for $80 to $100, I would expect the price to drop as more copies come to market, however, with the large Spawn fan base this could be a long term collectors item.

The Unquotable Trump is an ashcan comic book featuring classic comic covers redone featuring Donald Trump and various quotes from speeches he’s made.  Drawn and Quarterly picked up the comic and is publishing an over-sized treasury edition in November. In the past week on ebay this ashcan has sold from $15 to $30. You can still buy copies of this ashcan for $4 from this link.

Word?! Bleedingcool Effect on Giant Day

Screen shot 2015-04-08 at 1.35.34 AMBleedingcool for the most part is either late in providing information for their speculators corner or they give information that just throws you off. Today they did a article on Boom’s series Giant Day #1, which has sold out at Diamond in first print and is selling on ebay for $5 to $6. This should be expected to rise just based on the effect Bleedingcool has on the comic market.
Second prints are still available at diamond, first prints are selling for $6 AND can still be ordered on the Boom Website for cover price. With the 1:20 and 1:10 variants also be offered at very reasonable prices. This book has a lot of potential.

Old News: Planet Hulk + Spider-Man Joins Civil War

One of the biggest comic book related stories to come out of the sony hacking and private e-mail dump was the revelation that Marvel was trying to secure the rights back to Spider-Man so he could join the cinematic Marvel / Disney universe. News this week has confirmed this – with studios apparently announcing Spider-Man joining the Civil War story-line.

If this is true – the books to go out and buy right now are Amazing Spider-Man #532, Amazing Spider-Man #533 and the consecutive issues to issue 538. This is the Spider-Man joining Civil War story line, with Amazing Spider-Man #533 having the revelation to the world that Peter Parker is Spider-man – which should be a mini-key if this new news pans out.

This is old news- but its news from the past month or so – seems that the animated Planet Hulk film from 2010 has helped jack up the price of the first appearance of Planet Hulk. The Incredible Hulk Volume 2 #92 – features the Hulk waking up on a spaceship after being exiled from earth for getting angry all the time. The book is selling for $30+ and has a lower print second printing that has been selling for around $50 – largely because the cover says variant and features new art without indicating its a second printing variant.
