One Year Later: Spec Review for 10/4/17

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.
Poyo’s Drek (Trust the chicken!) – Let’s see what the agent told us to stay away from last year.

Shadow Batman #1– Original Value: $4           Current Value: $4 or less

The Archies #1 – Original Value: $4           Current Value: $4 or less

Batman: White Knight #1 – Anthony Pick
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $12
In fact this whole series is still pretty hot!
Quick Flip Winners

Weed Magic #1 – Anthony & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4.20           Quick Flip Value: $24.20           Current Value: $8-9
Fizzled out a bit but still fairly active for sales.
Still Potentials

Darth Vader #6 – Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $5-6
For now The Inquisitorius has not heated up too much but who knows what the future holds when it comes to Star Wars.

Batman #32– Poyo & Mel Pick on Cover B
Original Value: $3           Current Value: $3-4
Not sure of any quick flip potential here but this one was really the set up for a let down.
Unspecced Winners

Batman: The Dawnbreaker #1
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $13
DNM! Can’t go wrong!

Green Arrow #32
Original Value: $3           Current Value: $10
I am sounding like a broken record here with these DNM tie-ins.

Warframe #1
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $6
Not a big winner but this one seems to be heating up slowly.

  1. Finally got Around to reading White Knight. Very good. May read the upcoming sequel, but not sure I want to risk disappointment. Probably will be hyped up a lot.

    1. Despite any hype the sequel will get, Sean Murphy was given the green light to expand on his alternate Batman Universe that he created in the initial WK series. I believe his vision wont be compromised by ‘hype’, and will live up to the expectations of the readers. Imo
