    Best modern covers ever

    Influenced by this week's great Catwoman variant, this is one of my favorite covers of the New 52 era, also by Ben Oliver:

    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    Thank you for this input... I have been following recent sales and listings and it seems to be slumping before the release of the movie, so I wasn't sure if now would be a good time to let go of one of my raw copies. I was leaning towards holding them, anyway. Also, some things I've noticed; Monstress #1 2nd print still doing well, recent sales over $100. I just sold a copy of Sheriff of Babylon #1 for $30, so there's still demand for this great (but seemingly forgotten) story. I think this could make a great Kathryn Bigelow style war drama. I've also recently sold copies of Darth Vader #3 (vol. 1), Vengeance #1, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1, and 52 Week Eleven in the last handful of days, all for anywhere from $16 to $25 per.

    My shop only got two in, and I knew it was a hot book but only grabbed one. They seem to be selling for just under $20 shipped, right now. Awesome cover, though. I'm surprised today's Alex Ross and Adam Hughes' Captain Marvel covers aren't going for more, they're lovely.

    Sentry #1 SDCC print run

    I’m interested in this, too. Only two copies I’ve found were back to back in a dollar box. Just a shot in the dark, somewhere in the low 4 digits?

    Adventures in the Dollar Box

    Pretty solid dives into the cheapo boxes this past week, all of these ended up being either 50 cents or $1. The Rebirth Action Comics are newsstands (and in decent shape, too), I thought that German Spawn was really neat (it's a kind of odd near-double cover), Unity appears to be signed by Jim Shooter, and I think Gen 13 is a 1:50 (or so say eBay listings).

    I'm leaning towards keeping them for my PC, as I do with most of my newsies, but I'll have to see how these prices are holding out. If they go much higher I just might. On a related note, aforementioned #11 just sold for $40 (it's not in quite as good of shape, and 27 seems to be selling higher on its own for whatever it's worth) 15 minutes after listing.

    I just listed a nice New Avengers #27 for $45 and it sold within five minutes. Hopefully my #11 isn’t far behind. Now, I’m wondering if I should list my newsstand copies of those issues...

    Books you just cant find in the Wild

    It’s in horrible shape, but I came across this going through some boxes the other day. Any estimates on how many there are?

    Yup. Spent about an hour the other day going through misc. boxes in my attic to find that I only have one copy of #3 and no #5s. Thankfully, I found another #3 at 2nC later that day and still haven't found a #5. I may list one of my #3s but I'm not sure if this is a hold or not...

    Adventures in the Dollar Box

    There was a warehouse blowout sale today with a bunch of $1 and $2 books. Spent about $64 on books from those inventories and bought a full run of Akira for $100. These are the $1 and $2 highlights:

    Books you just cant find in the Wild

    I don't know, it just doesn't strike me as something people flocked to the newsstands to buy, and in turn leaving many to be returned by the store. Just conjecture, but you said it yourself, it's an odd book to reprint like this... even though I think it's cool, being a Wrightson. And I'm not expecting this to be a ohmygoditssorare book that someone will pay a premium for, it just seems like something that there aren't a whole lot of. Again, just conjecture and speculation. Anyway, more on to topic, I found this for a dollar today:

    Even still, the survival rate of this book can't be that high, as this just doesn't seem like something many people would be picking up from newsstands... but, of course, we just don't know.

    I know this. I'm talking about how low the direct numbers are for this, supposedly. So, I'd figure the newsstand numbers to be pretty small, too.

    I must have missed it, but when did Immortal Hulk #2 take off?
