One Year Later: Spec Review for 10/18/17

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.

Very light week a year ago for the speccing crew. Mostly recommendations on good reads or good art so I pulled out what I could.

Poyo’s Drek (Trust the chicken!) – Let’s see what the agent told us to stay away from last year.
Marvel’s Lenticular Covers – Correct again. All are still available for cheap.

Winners


Harley Quinn #30 Variant Frank Cho Cover – Anthony & Mel Pick
Original Value: $3           Current Value: $7
One of the more sought after Harley variants by Cho and for obvious reasons.

Quick Flip Winners

Still Potentials


Z Nation #6 Lucio Parrillo Virgin Cover – Mel Pick
Original Value: $25           Current Value: $??
Could be a winner but only one recent sold listing for $75. And just a couple for sale. I guess people are hanging onto these.

Misses


Deadpool vs Old Man Logan #1 – Anthony Pick
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $4
Still available at retailers. Sets of #1-5 are going for $20ish.

Unspecced Winners


Batman: The Drowned #1
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $9
DNM!


Batman: The Red Death #1 2nd Printing Variant Jason Fabok Cover
Original Value: $4           Current Value: $8
DNM!
