It is nice to walk into a comic shop on Wednesday and buy your comics. It is even nicer to Walk into the shops, pick up your comics, and have them sell for multiple times cover price by the end of the day. Marry Me #1 is one of them.
Marry Me #1, my pick of the week for 1/4/17, is a small press book with a great concept, small print run, and built in fanbase from the Webcomic that has been around for 10 years. Throw in a “sexy variant” and a blank cover, and you have a winner.
The 1C variant was a 1:3 variant, and has been selling for $15.99. New listings are now asking in the $20 range.
The cheap copies are now gone and according to completed listings the regular cover is selling for as much as $6.25 and the blank is selling for $10, the 1:3 variant is the one to grab though.
Other Comic Observations
Also of note, Love is Love #1 First Print were on the stands of my local comic shop here on the east coast. That means they are in the US. They are selling for about $30.
Also, seems that Heavy Metal #284 was shorted and some shops didn’t get them today, they may not get them until next week. Might be a quick flip, especially for the Jesus The Barbarian cover that could cause controversy.
