Anthony from http://www.comicsheatingup.net talks about the hot new comic book releases of the week. Here is this week’s for delivery 10/24/18:
The ASM #8 Black Cat cover by JG Jones isn’t really a B cover, as shops had to “meet or exceed” in order to qualify for it. – “And knowing’s half the battle” Jake
Lol. Very true but Killer B sounds better than Killer Has to Meet or Exceed. I hate Marvel’s practice of doing that. Have you seen the solicitation for Uncanny X_Men #1? Makes no sense that you have to meet or exceed 200-250% of Avengers #4 in order to qualify for some of the variants, and, it is an $8 price tag book.
Marvel loves 75% off back issue sales at your local comic shops.. 😉
I’ve been flipping batgirl 28 killers Bs for $15 (presage) even though midtown hasn’t sold out.
How have you guaranteed that you will have the copies that you are pre selling, D-rog?
Thats why i always wait till i have em in hand. You never know what can happen. And even if youre a shop you may not get replacements if they come in damaged.
I pull my copies Tuesday night and list them then.
I’ll defer the answer to midtown as they took my money with the promise to deliver.
I’ve never had a problem with midtown delivering. Condition is the issue of concern. And my description states it is a presale and should it not arrive in near mint or better condition I’ll give the buyer the option to take a discount or back out/cancel.
I usually wait to have them in hand, but I feel preselling this issue may be my best option for flipping as this cover, although attractive, isn’t that inspiring and may not hold value after the flood hits Wednesday.
I have to say I agree 100% and think the way you are doing it is possibly the best way to cash in on the cover.
Same here, sold 5 of 7. Thought there would be a lower print run considering the artwork came out after FOC bur I guess shops are ordering anything Middleton at this point… I figured ebay prices will drop to just above cover on Wednesday so I cashed out.

I’m surprised there was no mention of Finch’s variant for Moon knight!
Its supposed to be cover price and Finch never disappoints with moon knight.
I saw it, love it, but think it may be parts re-used from other covers. I meant to look into that more.
Regardless I preordered one from midtown, as my lcs marks most variants up.
I will be grabbing one. i love Finch’s work on Moom Knight and honestly consider his Moon Knight covers as good as Bill Siekiewicz’s back in the day. I collected all his covers as well.
I read somewhere the Flash cover was by Mico Suyan, i probably spelled that wrong.
I went by what was showing in Diamond when I checked, it very well could be as Diamond can be slow in updating that sort of thing.
It honestly doesn’t look like his work to me, not saying it’s bad but man his covers are always some of the best imo.
