What up CHU Believers!?!? Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season! Shawn B., the One Year Later Investigator, here, sorry I have been MIA for so long. Had a lengthy vacation and then had some minor health issues for the past month. Wasn’t fun. I even missed out on some recent key issues that came out. But I am back and look forward to starting out 2018 strong with the spec reviews.
I am starting to get more data on historical values of some of the specced releases. So I have added a new Quick Flip Winner section that you will start seeing from time to time. I have also started re-watching Anthony and Terry Hoknes’ spec review videos from a year ago and will be adding some of their specs from them.
I am psyched to be back and hope that everyone has an incredible year of speccing and collecting. That being said, let’s get on with the review.
Underworld: Blood Wars One Shot – Poyo, Anthony Pick
Original Value: $7 Current Values: A-$??, B-$75, C-$125
Wow! Can’t determine regular cover value but I can say there are none for sale…. anywhere. The 2 Variants can be found at an expensive cost. Copies signed by Kate Beckinsale and graded have sold for up to $650. Guessing there is a following here.
Quick Flip Winners
A B C D
Marry Me #1 – Anthony Pick & Poyo Specced on Cover C
Original Value: $4 Quick Flip Value: A-$8, B-$8, C-$20, D-$6
This one has since kind of fizzled out. There are many for sale close to these quick flip values, but the few recent sales are closer to original cover value. That C cover was hot for a while.
Heavy Metal #284 Savage Sword of Jesus Christ By Ken Kelley Variant – Poyo Pick
Original Value: $9 Current Value: $10
Not a winner but close. Lots for sale from $10-35. Unsure of any quick flip opportunity.
Unstoppable Wasp #1 Incentive Elizabeth Torque Variant Cover – Mel & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $25 Current Value: $15
Not a ton of sales here to get an accurate value. But in general the series never really heated up.
Harley Quinn #11 Frank Cho Variant
Original Value: $3 Current Value: $8
Anthony must have started his HQ Cho Variant kick shortly after this.
