Let’s finish out the month.
April 17th Books
Naomi #4 – 19,282
Hot series that still holds a potential long term spec value after we saw the first 3 issues heat up but have cooled off since.
Naomi #4 is still a solid $10.00 book on average. A recent sold auction ended at $14 and change.
Buy and hold or if you can find at cover, flip for a quick double your money.
Knights of the Golden Sun #1 2nd Print – 935
Super small print run, even for a second printing. Knights of the Golden Sun #1 2nd Print reached a peak of $15 but has turned into a solid $8 to $10 book on a good day.
Not a bad pickup if you find them out in the wild.
Major X #2 Noto Variant – 28,152
Major X has some goofy looking Liefeld covers but the variants are the real winners for this one, well, intially.
Major X #2 Noto Variant reached as high as $79.99 on a few pre-sales. I bet those buyers are having buyers FOMO remorse as the most recent sold listing went for a whopping $9.99.
So if you missed out and want the Noto variant for Major X, now’s the time to nab a copy for dirt cheap compared to what retailers likely priced them at.
Star Wars TIE Fighter #1 Character Variant – 30,900
Star Wars TIE Fighter #1 Character Variant are some pretty cool variants introducing some new characters in the Star Wars universe.
Saw some heat initially as a ratio variant, reaching as hight as $39 and $49, it’s now settled back down to be a solid $8 to $10.
If these characters ever make it to the big screen or another Star Wars show, could see these heat up and become more desirable once again. I would totally welcome a TIE Fighter Disney+ streaming show. If done right, would be a really cool take on the TIE Fighters from their perspective.
West Coast Avengers #10 – 13,259
Sets of both issues reached as high as $50. Recent sales are now putting these at cover or slightly over cover with issue #9 still being a winner with most sales around the $10 range.
Perhaps this one is a long term hold now rather than short term if the character ever takes off with some organic popularity. If you missed out, now’s the time to buy I say.
Small print run + organic demand initially = Possible valuable book down the road.
War of the Realms War Scrolls #1 – 24,718
The Sorrentino Variant of War of the Realms War Scrolls #1 ended up being a winner I think based on it’s cover art alone.
Maybe I’m missing something but as the cover is cool, I still don’t know why this heated up to to the $25 range briefly.
Recent sales have been anywhere from $5 to $10 now for this variant. The other regular cover is still a cover price book despite most online retailers being sold out.
