It is nice to walk into a shop on Wednesday and buy new comics. It is an added bonus when you can walk into a shop, buy books, and sell them for multiple times cover price by the end of the day. Hillbilly #2 is one of those books. Continue reading “Wednesday Winner: Hillbilly #2”

Thanks to Mycomicpulllist for sending this over.
I know we all hate it, hearing a comic shop was broken into and burglarized. Valuable collectibles stolen to never be recovered. Not to mention, even if the shop is insured, replacing the comics can be very hard. That is why this story made me smile. Continue reading “Karma (and Stupidity) Leads to Comic Shop Burglar Arrest”
It would be an understatement to say there are going to be a ton of covers for Dark Knight III the Master Race #1. This is going to be a big book, both in size and sales. Expect this one to take the #1 slot for the month in both dollars and number of copies sold, unless Marvel pulls some trick to bump it into second place (they have done that before.) Anyway, our friends at ComicXposure.com ran a cover gallery showing off twenty-one of the covers. Continue reading “Variant Envy: Dark Knight III Master Race #1”

Commentary by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – firstname.lastname@example.org
I was six years old in Grade 1 when Star Wars debuted in theaters in 1977. So Star Wars is possibly the most important franchise/concept in my life. So very excited to see Star Wars back at Marvel.
However their new slogan is “welcome Home” which I think is a bit funny since it was Marvel’s decision to stop publishing Star Wars comics completely back in 1986 as sales had dropped fairly low. The series lasted 107 issues. #107 is very valuable now as the last issue that also had the smallest print run. Those facts are true but note that #104-107 are almost the same small print run. The print run in 1986 was 65,000 copies for the final issue. Marvel’s average comic sales must have been fairly impressive to cancel a title with 65,000 considered a failure. In 2014 a print run of 65,000 would now make a title about the #6 best selling ongoing Marvel title and would be considered a great success.

Thanks to my friends at the Comic Book Speculating and Investing community at Google+ for this tip. Continue reading “Captain America #6 First Winter Soldier: A Comic Heating Up”
It is funny how books can shoot up in value for what seems to be no reason. It is funnies how some continue to perform well for a while after. Many speculation books should be flipped quickly to maximize returns, as they often drop well below their original selling price. That is why it can be difficult to speculate on new books. Black Science #2 has so far bucked the trend of dropping in price. Continue reading “Black Science #2 continues to do well on secondary market”
