Welcome once again to the another installment of the One Week Later Report. This week we’ll cover the books released on 11/28/2018. This week was a little bit more exciting than the previous weekly report.
Absolutely no winners from last week. Most if not all can still be ordered online or found at your local shops.
I will mention for those that were able to nab a Green Lantern #1 LCSD Foil Variant for cover price or cheap, these were flip winners as most are averaging sales around the $85 range.
These weren’t part of the regular Wednesday release but instead part of the Local Comic Shop Day on Saturday, the day after Black Friday.
Midtown has these for $50 so even at that price, one could still make some decent profit.
The first winner was seeing some really nice pre-sales initially. This one goes to the Stephanie Hans variant for Iron Heart #1.
This one seemed to simmer down but has gone back up as most recent sales are between $95 to $115 range.
So if you got’em, now’s the time to sell’em I think. I can only assume unless Iron Heart takes off in popularity, these will drop in price before they continue to go up.
I still don’t think this is her best work either. I might be in the minority but it just sits wrong with me.
This next book sold out quickly online but if you missed out, now’s the time to possibly buy if you’re a fan of Gang-Hyuk Lim (not to be confused with In-Hyuk Lee). That goes to Spider-Girls #2 Gang-Hyuk Lim variant which is selling on average of $25 or less. Some shops put this 1:25 variant at a starting retail price of $30 range and these are found now for $20 or less with some listings.
Another book that is seeing some success is the Daredevil #612 Campbell Variant. It retailed for around the $85 range (at least Midtown listed it at that much, it varies from retailer to retailer) but is selling for anywhere between $100 to $240. There was one sold listing at $9.99 but I’d imagine that was a total mistake, so whoever scored that sale on eBay should go buy some lotto tickets.
Poyo says hold out though if you really want this Campbell variant in your collection. Daredevil will be back and I can only see this one dropping after the hype dies off a bit. At least it has one thing going for it, Daredevil doesn’t look like Mary Jane.
Independent and Small Publisher Books
The first book was mentioned last week as a pre-sales winner with a few sets of both covers selling at $50. Once these were released, the regular cover has settled to be on average a $20 book.
This is Stars End #1, another book out from Antarctic Press who’s seen a lot of success lately starting with their self-published turn Antarctic book Rags.
I just can’t stop talking about Rags. I might not understand why it’s selling like crazy but I’ve done really well picking these up at cover and flipping them.
Dredd Final Judgement #2 Jock Cover did not see as as much success as it’s first issue but still was a potential hit book. Could be a long term gamble. Some were lucky to sell these at $12 average but a few MCS ebay sales putting this at $3.99 price range, seems most are lowering their prices.
So if you missed out, now’s the time to buy at secondary market prices where you can score it at cover price or just a tad bit over cover price.
Future Jock and Dredd fans will likely seek these out over time. I say buy now and hold for the future gamble.
Monarchs #1 from Scout Comics sold out online at most retailers but it hasn’t seen much heat on the secondary market. Perhaps it’s a long term hold gamble.
Scout has seen success when their books get optioned so might not be a bad idea to pick up a few for cheap gambling.
These Savage Shores #1 Second Print is seeing some success as a solid $10 to $12 book.
With a great looking classic homage cover, it’s a nice pickup if you can find them. Keep it for the personal collection or sell at double the profit.
The last book to mention is the Marvel Action Spider-Man #1 Eastman from IDW. Talk about being happy I didn’t pull the trigger and spend $20 or so bucks when Midtown listed theirs. You can now find these at $15 or less on the secondary market.
I love Eastman’s style with the Turtles so when he draws other heroes, I’m going be all over it as this was my favorite cover art from this week.
If you missed out, buying on the secondary market is the way to go. That’s of course you found it for cover price at your own local shops.
That’s all the highlights for this weeks review from books that came out on November 28th. If a book wasn’t mentioned, it’s likely because you can still find it at your local shops or online for cover price.
