What up CHUllectors!?! Shawn B., the One Year Later Investigator, back with another One Year Later round up, where we take a look at some of the comics that Anthony, Mel, and Poyo specced on one year ago. Their specs turn out to be quick flips, slow burns, straight up misses, straight up winners and on and on. Sometimes they spec with their hearts out of their passion for comics. Sometimes they spec based on data. And sometimes they spec based off the word on the street. Either way, all their specs appeal to a few or many collectors whether it is due to them having similar taste in writing or art, or just an opportunity for a collector to flip a book and make money to “support their habit”. So, this is our weekly chance to look back at how some of our buys from a year ago are doing today.
Wonder Woman #23 Variant Jenny Frison Cover – Mel & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $3 Current Value: $8
No shocker here. These Jenny Frison variants might be the most consistent winners when it comes to the Killer Bs covers. Cho is up there too.
Quick Flip Winners
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #19 Incentive Marcos Martin Variant Cover – Anthony & Mel Pick
Original Value: $25 Quick Flip Value: $40 Current Value: $25
First appearance of Girl Moon. With the success of the series and the show coming out, the drop surprises me a little on this one. If Girl Moon is introduced in the show this could be a great long-term hold. Regular cover goes for cover price and below still.
Normals #1 Incentive Elizabeth Torque Variant Cover – Mel & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $15 Quick Flip Value: $25 Current Value: $7
You’d a had to move faster than a speeding bullet to get the quick flip value out of this one. Last sale on the bay was for $1!
Seven To Eternity #6 Variant Jerome Opena Spawn Month Color & B/W Cover – Anthony & Poyo Picks
Original Value: $4 each Quick Flip Value: $25 for set Current Value: $5 each
I don’t do any quick flipping so I hate the fact that I fall for these variant themes when I shouldn’t.
Elektra #4 Incentive Christopher Stevens Variant Cover – Mel Pick
Original Value: $25 Current Value: $10
These Elektra variants had a little juice off the bat but quickly fizzled out. Unsure of any Quick Flip value.
Original Value: $3 Current Value: $10
The B Cover is at the same value.
Totally Awesome Hulk #19
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $12
Who knew at this point?!
