Bidding down on ‘Sixth Gun’ since NBC passes on show

It was bound to happen, hype built up on “The Sixth Gun’ stemming from the announcement that NBC optioned it for a TV show. When the NBC passed on it, prices dropped. (Do not get me wrong though, this is a great book.) This ends up creating what stock traders call “bag holders,” as in being left holding the bag. The thing with it is, NBC could still make the show in one of it’s subsidiaries. And Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt are still shopping it around. This has happened with several hot books such as ‘The Test’ which burned white hot and then dropped off. Oddly, this did not happen to  ‘Chew’ #1 after Showtime passed on their option

There are currently a couple of copies of ‘Sixth Gun’ number 1 sitting on eBay that are real steals.

Here is the regular edition for $12.50 with a few hours left:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121107763982?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

(Edit: 80 views and now up to $14.50)

(Edit 2: 177 views and closed at $92.78, Anyone else bid on this?)

And the Free Comic Book Day Edition for $5.50 with 2 days left:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/140972556601?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

(Edit: Now up to $7.00 I threw some bids on it)

(Edit 2: Still only at $7.50)

This book had peaked well into the $300 range.

We will have to see what happens with the options for ‘The Damned.’

Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list 5/3/13

Diamond Advanced Reorder List

One way to guage how hot a comic is/will be is by the Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list. This gives retailers to up their orders for books that may have caught some heat before the release and before the final order cut offs. So without further ado, this weeks advanced reorder list:

1. Mighty Thor Omnibus Hardcover Vol. 2

2. Batman Beyond 16

3.Batman lil’ Gotham #2 – First issue sold well. Does well as an download and translating well into sales for floppies.

4. Constantine #1 2nd Printing – 1st issue of Post-Hellblazer leads to a 2nd printing

5. Supior Spider-man #10 – Fallout from #9 is translating into increased orders for 10.

6. Five Ghosts Haunting of Fabian Gray #3 of 5 – Word is this has moved to an ongoing, retailers upping their orders.

8. East of West #3 – Another hit from Jonathan Hickamn, first issue is seeing increase prices on eBay

9. Bounce #1 – Heat from ‘Sex’ helping to pull interest into this book. #1’s from Image have been good speculator fodder

14. Helheim #2 2nd Printing – ‘Sixth Gun’s’ writers latest hit. Support from variants doing well on the secondary market and good story and art leading to good sales.

Picks of the week April 24th

There are a good crop of books coming out this week and I always put out my picks of the week the day before the books come out. So here are my speculator picks of the week for Wednesday April 24th 2013.

1. Jupiter’s Legacy #1- I know I ranted about how the regular cover will be so over printed that there is very little chance for the book to shoot up in value. But I still see the potential for a good story, great art, and variant covers that can be flipped in the first week if you get them cheap enough.

2. Helheim #2 – First issue of this Cullen Bunn book did well on the secondary market. Second books usually are printed less than the first so there is a good chance this one could do as well.

3. East of West #2- Again, first issue sales, did well on the secondary market. Book has heat.
