Welcome once again to the another installment of the One Week Later Report. This week we’ll cover the books released on 2/27/2019.
Action Comics #1008 was a pretty sweet cover that sold out quickly online.
Jeff Dekal is the cover artist.
Despite selling out pretty quickly online, there’s no real love on the secondary market as this is a cover price book with most sold sales at $3.99 average and that’s not even including shipping.
Your better off finding these at the local shop if you can to make it worth your while if you missed out. Or buy multiple books from the same seller if the combine to make it worth the cost.
Old Lady Harley #5 introduced Old Joker and Joker Jr. that got speculators and collectors scrambling for this issue.
This quickly became a solid $20 book but recent sales put it around the $15 range with a few sales still flirting towards the $20 range.
It’s definitely a book to grab out in the wild if you can find them as it’s a nice flip or possibly long term hold if the new characters stick around and remain popular amongst the DC fan masses.
Naomi #1 2nd Printing hit shelves last week and is sold out at most online retailers.
It’s still a cover price book on the secondary market place.
The first printing is doing quite well though being a solid $15 to $20 book for most sold listings.
I say grab any of them you find, could be a long term gamble since there are the Bendis fanboy and girls out there who still love his work.
The only Marvel book worth mentioning is the Marvel Comics Presents #2 Gerald Parel variant.
This is a 1:50 ratio variant so some shops might start the retail price around the $50 range but this one is still selling on average of $70 or so, with one peaking at $79 and an auction that ended around $61.
Not a lot of sales and movement but it’s one to watch. But unless something special happens in this issue (which we probably would have already heard about), I think this will result in the normal Marvel Ratio Variant fizzle.. over time it’ll lose more value than gain.
Indie and Small Publisher Books
Honor and Curse #1 is seeing some success.
A lot of sold listings but still plenty available on the secondary market. These have sold anywhere from $10 to $20 on average and reaching as high as $25 a few times.
Sold out at most retailers that I’ve checked, might not be a bad pickup if you find them.
Tread carefully though. Indie books like this can fizzle quickly so if you do find it, check online to see if there’s any movement to make sure you’re not wasting your time. There was 34 listings at time of writing this.
That’s it. It was a small week for spec’s. Hopefully the books from today on March 6th are much better come next week.
