What up you CHUligans? Hope everyone had a good week. I finally had time to go to my lcs and pick up my pulls from the last 6 weeks……that was a cheap trip. Man, it is crazy how many Image books these days are immediately going up in value and I am really looking forward to seeing where they stand a year later. Anyone read Plastic yet? WOW…. that was weird……and yet I can’t wait for #2 to come out. I knew that I had a warped taste in stories but I may have found a new level.
I’ll keep the intro short this week and get right to it! Tougher week for the guys. Out of the 100’s of issues released One Year Ago Today, very few held strong for a year.
Disney Darkwing Duck #1 – Anthony Pick Original Value: $4 Current Value: $12 Gotta admit that Anthony is pretty solid at the kid comic picks. Joe must be advising him.
Image + #1 – Anthony Pick Original Value: $2 Current Value: Sales at $3 – $4 on eBay but also still available at Midtown. Some pretty shocking prices paid for issues #1 – 12 sold as a lot, but they seem to lower on individual sales of #1. Considering this is Negan and Lucille’s back story I am going to hang onto these for a while. Who am I kidding….I hang onto everything.
