Welcome to the One Week Later Report for 2021. Skipped last week that would have included books from 06/30/2021 so I might throw a few books from that week in the mix as well.
This week we’ll mainly cover the books released on 07/07/2021, which was last week.
These can be books that were simply overlooked or we anticipated getting hot, total surprise winners and perhaps books that got hyped, ending up as complete duds. Also could be a good list to use when out picking up this weeks books for you Wednesday Warriors…
Stray Dogs is simply on fire. Everyone is seeking these out, all these additional printings that are doing homage covers from mostly horror related movies.
Stray Dogs #1 4th Printing - Selling anywhere from $11 to $20 with a bunch of $11 to $12 sales in past few days.
Stray Dogs #2 3rd Printing - Almost same as the first issue 4th printing, a lot of $12 type sales but this one has what appears a few more sales around the $20 mark.
Stray Dogs #3 3rd Printing - Not doing as well as the others, seeing sales anywhere from $4 to $8 currently.
Stray Dogs #4 3rd Printing - This one started out pretty good, seeing sales around the $10 range but looks like auctions with actual bids have set the value of this one at or around the $5 mark with the most recent sales.
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #14 is more of an honorable mention which gives us the first full of the new Deathstick character after her debut in Bounty Hunters #13 (looks like it’s a $10 book on a good day).
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #14 (Camuncoli Headshot Variant War of the Bounty Hunters) and Star Wars Bounty Hunters #14 (Sprouse Lucasflim 50th Variant War of the Bounty Hunters) still available at TFAW but the long term winner will be Cover A. Still available at Midtown but limited to 1 per.
This one is the long term hold to see how this new character pans out.
I hope you didn’t overspend for the Mamo #1 Unlockable Virgin One Per Store Variant.
You can nab these for around $10 on eBay. Might not be a bad gamble if this series gains some love and demand. I have yet to read it so I can’t vouch for the story within.
Seems a majority are on the Tynion high due to his secondary market success for SIKTC so seeing some love for his new Nice House on the Lake series at DC/Black Label, we all should have expected a drop in print for the second issue but if people are liking the story, expect a demand and we’ll likely see this issue start to go up in price when supplies start to run dry.
Nice House On The Lake #2 is still available with the A cover at TFAW.
Also to note, TFAW still has Nice House on the Lake #1 (of 12) (Francavilla TFAW Exclusive Variant) which are still seeing sales hovering around the $30 mark. Not a bad pickup I think at $14.99 and you can almost double your money. Buy two, sell one, it’s like getting the book for free almost.
Now a few mentions from two weeks ago, since I failed to do this report last week.
Marvel Action Spider-Man #3 Florean 1:10 is doing decently. If you were able to score this 1:10 for cover or 1:10 ratio type prices from retailers (the $10 to $15 range), this one is averaging $30 currently.
Just a cool cover if you ask me.
Black Cat Annual #1 introduced a team with some first appearances within. Not going crazy but still decent sales on the secondary. It’s cooling off but seemed to average around the $10 mark, double your money type of book. I’d say it’s one to grab a copy of and tuck away for the long term gamble potential.
X-Factor #10 gave us the death of Scarlet Witch. We all know deaths don’t last long and mean nothing but they still generate a little bit of FOMO, making this one initially jump in price but it seems to have since settled back down to a cover price book.
White #1 seems to have a lot of collectors and speculators scrambling. This one seeing sales $50 and up for the first issue. I’m out of the Black Mask game myself and don’t even bother with them or their titles.
I say flip these if you can, in a few months they’ll likely be worthless and I mean, if history repeats itself when it comes to Black Mask, you won’t even be able to pay someone to take these off you hands.
