I mulled over putting this on my blog, but folk don’t read my posts there about flipping too much besides when I note hot comics. I wanted to share some nitty-gritty stuff though and figured a group such as this would appreciate a report on my flipping as of late. Sometimes I don’t even flip much and am instead getting my comic-budget money through freelance ghostwriting gigs or such, but I had some solid flipping occur or am in the process of getting stuff graded to then flip, so why not share?
Simon Hanselmann is a hot indie cartoonist who puts out little self-published comics sometimes with his hit characters Megg, Mogg, Owl, Werewolf Jones, etc. I buy those, read them, and flip them. I sold the latest, “Megahex Winter Trauma Annual,” for $40, I paid $15 for it.
I acquired a handful of those Batman Giant Specials that are exclusive to Target. They cost $10 and trend online for $15-$20, so a pretty small profit after shipping costs if you sell now. I sold a couple, may hold onto some and see what happens.
At a small local comic show, I traded a Funko Pop of, “The Countess,” I got for really cheap previously for a 7.0 copy of Wolverine #1–the 1988 ongoing. Sold that $25
Picked up some of those Iron Man 2020 #1 limited variants for about cover, sold two of them and the free ashcan for $20.
Unloaded issues #1-#6 of, “Wytches,” for a pretty cheap $20. I could’ve tried for more with rumors of an option, but my copies were a little worn, so it wasn’t like if a movie or show were announced it would’ve made any sense to grade them.
Sold issues #1-#8 of, “Secret Invasion,” for $21. Again, worn copies so not too shabby for me.
I got a copy of, “Peter Porker: The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1,” for a buck, sold it for $10.
I am going to get some of my duplicate Moon Knight comics pressed and then send them to CGC. I have a low-quality and higher-quality of #25 of the 1980’s AKA first Black Spectre, so I’ll keep the one in shoddy condition and grade the better one. I also will get a, “Marc Spector: Moon Knight #57,” pressed and graded once a cheap copy in good condition I bought online arrives. Has that snazzy Platt cover with Moon Knight and Spider-Man that riffs on, “Amazing Spider-Man #300.”
I am working at selling some other Simon Hanselmann comics currently too. I maybe am asking too much the places I have them listed and will adjust the price as needed.
I have a number of cheesecake-style comics being graded with CGC right now. A Frankie’s Comics variant for, “Vamp,” and two raunchy, “Notti and Nyce,” covers I got for pretty cheap from a vendor who keeps them in perfect condition. They should hopefully get a 9.8 from CGC and then sell to fans of that artwork for a small-to-decent profit.
Personal Collection Note:
I have a Moon Knight #12 (first Morpheus) I got from a friend years ago that is a double cover misprint. I am getting it graded as I have duplicates of the regular cover versions and it will look really cool with the double cover grade on display in my personal collection.
Nothing crazy, just some nice flips that help fund me buying more comics to read, enjoy, and then keep or flip!
If everyone liked this let me know and I can always post more data about when I am active at flipping. I can try and post pics too when things return from CGC. The more NSFW covers may need some censor bars or a content warning, however!
