May wasn’t exactly quiet but lacked too much in the way of buy-and-sell craziness.
I snatched up the four-issue mini-series, “Ball and Chain,” once I heard the announcement of a movie from Atomic Avenue from the one seller who had a first issue and the other three. I got them all for under $20 and sold the lot for $40.
I bought three copies of, “Youngblood,” #2 from a chum of mine who only wanted $12 for them and sold them all for $12 each on eBay and Mercari.
I bought a, “Cherry Poptart Volume IV,” trade paperback for $12, sold it for $25. I got it more to read (I enjoy saucy comics now-and-then), but listed it on lark after I read it and it sold within a day.
I found a, “Mighty Avengers,” #13 in a dollar bin at Vstock when I went for their Memorial Day sale (I wore my mask and used sanitizer of course). It was only $2 and comics were BOGO, so I got it with a random other comic I don’t recall and with the sale it was essentially free. I sold it for $12 on eBay.
One of my bigger sales was getting a copy of, “Skullgirls: Second Encore,” for the Nintendo Switch from Skybound’s website. I get their emails and they put 250 copies up for sale for $35 retail. I sold my copy for $62 within 24 hours of it arriving.
I bought a, “Blackwood: The Mourning After,” #3 Peach Momoko variant for cover price and sold it for $15 on eBay.
Got a, “New Gods #9,” when rumors abounded about All-Widow. It cost me $10 and I sold it for $29 on Mercari.
I bought two Nova #1 when it was getting more buzz. Cost me about $100 total to get some decent-grade copies and sold them for $160 overall between Mercari and a comic-selling Facebook group.
Bought a, “Moon Knight,” #25 with the first appearance of Black Spectre in 9.0-ish condition for just $25 on eBay. It was an amazing deal and I was thinking of getting it pressed and graded. I set it on the table, one of my cats jumped up on the table, I yelled in shock for it to get down, it jumped off the comic and ripped through the bag it was in and sliced the front of the comic. I was hot-pissed. I was still able to sell the comic for $35 on Mercari to someone who said they would probably tape it and just display it because it looked great otherwise and make $5 basically after fees and shipping. Still, not fun.
That is everything I can readily recall from May.
