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.
Light week having been a fifth Wednesday.

Quick Flip Winners
Vampirella #3 Variant Jimmy Broxton Subscription Cover – Anthony Pick

Cool cover. I think I like this one better than the virgin cover.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2017 Annual #1 Dan Mora Virgin Variant Cover – Mel Pick
Original Value: $15 Current Value: $15
Sold out everywhere. Very hard to find. To be fair, Mel only posted 3 variants a year ago this week. While he didn’t spec any to go up in value this one was his favorite and I wanted to review at least one of his picks. Mel did you get this one onto a t-shirt?
