One Week Later Report for March 27th, 2019

Welcome once again to the another installment of the One Week Later Report. This week we’ll cover the books released on 3/20/2019.

DC Books

Batman #67 Johnson Variant B was a great looking cover, selling out at most retailers online but has not seen any love on the secondary market.

Sets of both covers, A & B have sold as high as $7.25. One sold listing ended at $8.49 but with free shipping. Most listings have sold under cover price.

So if you missed out, buy off eBay with hopefully other books to offset the shipping costs cause it’s cheaper than buying from your retailer at this point. I saw my local shop had a few extra copies out still.

Naomi #3 was likely the top winner for the week.

Single issues reached the $25 to $30 range. After the hype has settled, most recents are putting this at the $10-$12 on average price tag.

Find, buy and flip or buy to keep, could be a nice long term hold as well.

Teen Titans #28 Mico Suayan Variant B was a great Killer B but saw no love on the secondary market. Another book I saw at the local shop that was still available.

Marvel Books

Avengers No Road Home #6 quickly sold out online at most retailers but is once again back in stock.

We did see some sales reach the $10 mark though, most with free shipping.

Still worthy thought to mention as I think these Avenger NRH issues have long term hold potential.

Immortal Hulk #15, the current title that wins all the buzz each time it’s released.

You can still find the regular cover online (back in stock at Midtown), the Alex Ross 25th Anniversary is doing much better on the secondary market, being a solid $10 book with most sales.

So if you find them, not a bad pickup if you ask me. Are we going to start seeing increased print runs for Immortal Hulk? That could be the case so one should approach buying these with caution as we could see supply affecting overall demand.

Venom #12 Stegman Villains Variant was a great looking and even relevant cover art to the title but saw zero love on the after market. Sold out at most retailers but still selling for around cover price on average.

Indie and Small Publisher Books

Die #1 4th Printing is doing quite well as a 4th print. There was also a virgin variant of this that is a solid $20 book on average.

The regular 4th printing is around double cover for now with some $8 sales to average it out around that value point. If you missed out, you can still pre-order the Die #1 5th Printing that was mentioned last week.

Dark Red #1 Stroman Variant was the indie winner of the week I think. If you found this for cover or cheap, this is an easy $40 flip.

Most retailers likely set the inital price around $15, that’s still a nice profit margin if you ask me.

The regular cover you can still find available at most retailers, online and locally. This was highlighted by I think both myself and Anthony so it’s on my to read list.

Rise #1  is a new scout book that’s on my to read list.

It’s actually doing quite well with the Aguillo cover selling between $8 and $10 on average.

The regular cover is sold out still at Midtown and I couldn’t find any at my local shops but you can still find the Aguillo variant at Midtown currently, limited to 1 per customer.

The regular cover is still around a cover price book for the most part despite being sold out.

That’s your week in review. What were your winners from last week?

    1. Makes sense. Lower print runs with demand gonna lead to more printings. Overall though, if this continues to take off, issue #1 Cover A will be the clear winner long term.

      1. Sold one of my copies of Naomi #1 yesterday for $25. Someone offered me $32 for 1 & 2 today and I declined. Holding out for big bucks, no whammies!

    2. Final Printing is the key thought here. There will not be additional after Mondays FOC.

      SOLD-OUT NAOMI ISSUES GO BACK TO PRESS FOR FINAL PRINTINGS All are on Final Order Cutoff on April 1 and on sale on April 24. Each will feature a recolored version of the original covers.
      NAOMI #1 FINAL PRINTING (FEB198306) this final printing is now available to order featuring a recolored version of the original cover by Jamal Campbell.
      NAOMI #2 FINAL PRINTING (FEB198307) this final printing is now available to order featuring a recolored version of the original cover by Jamal Campbell.
      NAOMI #3 FINAL PRINTING (FEB198308) this final printing is now available to order featuring a recolored version of the original cover by Jamal Campbell.

      I underordered #4 since the shelf was bare of 1, 2, & 3 and there was no sign by FOC of additional printings. I’m assuming the market would be flooded with over purchasing of 4 5 and 6 anyway due to the jump in the first 3. Now that there’s some Final Printings coming I’ll increase my order for 5 and 6 while chasing down some 4’s to make reader sets out of since I expect no jump in the final 3’s price or at least not 5 and 6.

  1. I’ve solid 5 issues of Naomi for $20 a piece. I’ve kept two sets of issue 1,2,3 for long term. Also finding and flipping lots of Incredible Hulk #347 for about $25

        1. im a big believer in Naomi, i think this time next year its very possible issue 1 is selling near tt12 prices if bendis does what he’s promised
