April 24th Books
Amber Blake #2 – 2,489
Sold out online with another hard to find Nodet variant that saw some pre-sales heat up to the $100 range again.
Amber Blake #2 is still selling well.
The Nodet is still a solid $40 book while the most recent regular cover went for around $15.
The regular cover for issue #1 is selling just as well. Sets are going as high as $30 which puts the regulars around $15 each.
GI Joe Sierra Muerte #3 Swaid Variant – 4,932
GI Joe Sierra Muerte #3 Swaid Variant is a solid $20 to $30 book. If you can find them cheap as they’re a 1:10 variant, buy and flip.
Ghost Tree #1 – 4,847
Ghost Tree #1 was mentioned in a back in stock alert post. Sadly within minutes it was sold out, even limited to 1 per customer. Either a bunch jumped on board or they had limited stock available.
This one quickly became a $15 book initially though but has since settled down. But it has seen a 2nd print and you can pre-order the Ghost Tree #1 (3rd Printing) which comes out June 26th along with Ghost Tree #2 (2nd Printing) as well when Ghost Tree #3 (Cover A – Gane) hits store shelves.
Hot series seeing sellouts based on organic grown popularity. This one has potential long term I think. IDW certainly has a winner with this title.
Immortal Hulk #16 1:25 Second Print – ??
Immortal Hulk #16 1:25 Variant is a solid $35 book. Midtown is still trying to offload their copies for $75.
Not sure what Marvel is thinking or why retailers would give into these 2nd print ratio books but I don’t think it’s going as planned. Well, for those retailers who chased these the publishers are winning.
If you can find for cover or cheap, great flip potential but I don’t think these have legs to stand on for the long term.
Marvel Rising #2 Ganucheau Variant – 9,485
Marvel Rising #2 sold out quickly online but I hope you all didn’t fall for this book at the 1:25 ratio price retailers listed this one at as most sales put this as a $5 book.
If you’re a fan and want a cheap ratio, the secondary market is where you should buy.
Just like the Marvel Rising #1 Peach Momoko Variant that was hyped up and even saw sales over $100 range. Hope no one bought into that hype train as you can even find these for $30 or less now.
Naomi #1 – 6,100, #2 – 5,381 and #3 – 5,111 Final Printings
Issues #2 and #3 are still available at Midtown. Naomi #1 Final Print is not seeing the same love as the other additional printings.
You can find all these at cover or slightly above cover price. If you’re looking to create a complete set and missing any, now’s the time to buy these. Long term could still make these sought after if the character remains hot and DC plans to make her prominent in the DC universe.
Punk Mambo #1 – 18,773
You can find almost all the covers available for Punk Mambo #1
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge #1 Attraction Variant – 30,129
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge #1 Attraction Variant prices are all over the place. A recent sold went for $24.99 while many other recents were between $4 to $10.
Still a great variant to nab. Could be one for the personal collection and a long term hold.
That’s it for your April 2019 in review. If I missed anything, create a comment or it’s very likely the book is still available at your local retailers.
