Wednesday Winner: Weapon X #7

It is nice to walk into your local comic shop on a Wednesday and pick up your books. It is even nicer that by the end of the week some of those books sell for multiple times cover price. Weapon X #7 is one of those books.

Recently closed sales have ended for as high as closed as high as $15 , prices have slid slightly as some people have sold them as low as cover price (shaking my head on that seller). Bundled sets have been doing extremely well, people adding Weapon X and Totally Awesome Hulk books together and selling parts of the story line.

Copies of Exiles #86 and Secret Wars Battle World #3 have also been moving as people are getting swept up in the Hulk/Wolverine Mashup craze.

(This should have been up a few days ago but I have been sidelined.)

    Not a first appearance, and the white corner ruins the cover of what would of been an amazing cover. I have no desire for a copy.

    • agentpoyo says:

      You can tell they literally added the white to keep the writers/artists name in black along with the barcode, etc.

      • Brennan says:

        At least it’s the same dimensions as the triangle formed by the x on the opposite corner. *Shrug emoji*
        (I don’t know hot to do real emojis so that will have to do)

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah.. the white doesn’t bother me that much to be honest.

        But also, when I don’t know how to do the right code for emoji’s, I revert to ascii text..

        ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ = IDK Shrug Emoji

      • Anthony says:

        ASCII for the win.

  2. JasonC says:

    It really is a bad spec play. Spend your money on TAH #22 or WX #5 and #6.

    • Anthony says:

      I have them all. But have been flipping these for more than cover. Flippers not keepers on this.

      • JasonC says:

        I agree Anthony. Now is the time to flip WX #7 before many read it. Make that money. lol I know it’s the first full of the alter ego of Weapon H but that’s like saying which book would you rather have: 1st Eddie Brock or first Venom. In the long run it’ll have a slight bump in value. Also, I hate that it looks like they are steering Weapon H into hero territory. We need great Villains.

  3. Vann says:

    The market is the market is the market.

  4. OC_Guy says:

    I think weapon H should go up against whatever versions showed up in Exiles #86 and Battleworld #3…..Hey, it’s just as good an idea as anything Marvel has been putting out!….Have Squirrelgirl and baby Groot show up for some stupid reason, con Jim Lee into doing the cover and you have an instant modern classic…….Sigh.

    • Alana says:

      The Cosmic Weaponvenomizedsquirreldr.spidergwenroot will be Marvels next big character. Will come with lenticular glow in the dark foil extra gloss virgin homage pop up book store exclusive cover 👻

      • Brennan says:

        Yeah but they’ll make you order the square root of the closine of the tangents of the circumference of your store percent more than your order of their last three relaunches just to be allowed to order them. Then they’ll be allocated anyways so you still won’t get one.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Brennan, don’t forget, you have to stand on one foot while balancing a bowling ball on your head while hula hooping when you make your order to qualify as well.

      • OC_Guy says:

        Y’know there is a Marvel comics exec reading this right now just drooling over all the”great” ideas he is going to steal.

      • A. King says:

        I don’t know about anyone else, but for some reason I’m a sucker for glow in the dark covers.

      • Anthony says:

        I have a Glow in the Dark Ghost Rider with the sweet cover by Buzz signed by Buzz. Somewhere around here. It is awesome.

      • Alana says:

        Me too. I love the baby teeth #2 by Frankie’s comics, preordered the coming Deadman glow n Dark. Have a couple Evil Ernie ones, a Daredevil and ghost rider glow covers as well.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Forget glow in the dark covers.. I want them to start bringing back the “scratch & sniff” covers.. we can learn what Logan’s pits smell like or Hulk’s breathe…

      • Anthony says:

        Way to stick to only male characters.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah well….. You know….. I’m not gonna even go there…. 😉

      • OC_Guy says:

        For some reason I am getting lavender for Hulks breath.

      • Brennan says:

        It was bad enough the scent deadpool’s uniform, did they really need to make me scratch his crotch?

  5. Angelo says:

    Weapon x 8…the venomized weapon h is selling out everywhere. Get em when you find em.

    • Karl says:

      I’ve pre-order a bunch of weapon x #8 venom variant cover.

      But what do you guys think about TA Hulk #23?

      Will it be another eBay frenzy or has that storyline ending meant the end of the craze?!

      • Anthony says:

        TA Hulk is up to $40 now, insane. Hoping this will continue.

      • Anthony says:

        But at some point stores will catch on and order more.

      • Karl says:

        I’ve pre ordered 10 copies of the venom variant cover for #23 and will pick up More in store on the day.

        Ive sold 2 Weapon X 7’s for just over double price and have 2 more auctions ending this evening, but certainly nothing like metal or TA #22 or even Mister Miracle…..

      • Karl says:

        Previous comment was venomised weapon x…

        Also got 10 copies pre ordered for TA Hulk #23….

    • Alana says:

      I have the whole venomized set coming so all the Radom Marvel books should be covered for me this month.

  6. JasonC says:

    TAH #22 is the real deal. There is plenty of juice left in the storyline. MIght fall a bit. If you can find an issue for $20 or less it’s still a good buy.

  7. JasonC says:

    I thought TAH #23 is not a continuation of the Weapon H storyline?

    • agentpoyo says:

      Yeah, for TAH #23 it’s a new storyline, from what I can tell, no Weapon H stuff. Seems like Weapon H stuff is all in Weapon X books.

      But because we demanded it, expect a new series titled Weapon H in the foreseeable future. 😉

  8. JasonC says:

    OK did a little digging.
    Weapon X #8 sounds like the true origin story of Alpha
    Weapon X #10 Weapon H v Old Man Logan.

  9. David Bitterbaum says:

    I was able to snatch-up some of , “Weapon X #7,” and flip them quickly. I was very perturbed when one shop I occasionally frequent and which had pulled me a copy had FIVE more on their shelf but said they were limiting people to one copy per customer unless they specifically pre-ordered more. I understanding the logic of making sure you have it in stock so folk wanting one can get it, but that just made me irritable. Also, I flipped my Totally Awesome Hulk #22 copies too early and only got 20-ish for them. Should’ve waited for them to get so red-hot maybe, but a profit is a profit!

    • Richard Sean Guevara says:

      I prefer they limit it to one per person as it allows for people to pick up instead of one person hoarding everything. My LCS sold them at cover price to those who had it in their pull box prior to Wednesday. Come Wednesday they were selling them for $15 a pop. So that’s the flip side. If not limited one per customer you’ll see stores jump in on the speculation.

      • Vann says:

        If we are talking about an LCS here, that methodology is garbage. Shops that charge an elevated amount on opening day (ie Wednesday) is ridiculous. Yes, I know the argument that “this book is selling for far more on eBay”…..but when you ask them about the piece of crap book selling for 2/3 or even 1/4 the cover price on eBay and if they’ll match that price…of course they won’t.

      • Alana says:

        I’m telling you Gwenom is going to do the same, I’ve been hollering Gwenom since SpiderGwen came out.

    • Anthony says:

      Yeah. A profit is a profit. I have one left of 22 and holding it. It’s up to $40 now so I want to see where it goes.

      • Vann says:

        Jesus, you’re fast. I have more than a mitt-full of this book….and should have been listing them in sets as I was a very early adopter to this story line…..

        I need to catch-up dammit…..

    I have 20 TAH #22’s at CGC.. Solid book
