Spec sites largely do what you did. Difference is they had it last week.

Dayum.

Been to a few shops the last few weeks.

Detective 1000 every decade can still be had on the rack for cover.
Don't let anyone kid you even the early decades I can still buy.
The Ross cover seems to be only one worth looking into.

Naomi is a monster. Local shops have now sold out of 3 and 4 back to back.
Issue 1 and 2 sat on the racks for a few weeks before it caught fire I know
I bought several. Great thing about Naomi is this. Low Print Run, No Variants
and many of the normal Spec sites just plain missed the book at first. Hey guys
remember this a low print book without variants sells just as well. Really don't 
care about issues 5 and 6 except for a set. Remember when everyone else is 
getting in it maybe time to drop out.

My local shops price their variants too high so they just sit.

Young Avengers I cant find locally anymore. The first 12 issues have just 
disappeared. Sales on line indicate even issues like 2,4,10,11 are jumping
including 1 and 12.

All Eternals books from the 70s are gone. Of course I bought quite a few
myself, but shops are reselling copies coming in just as fast currently.
Eternals 3 has now taken the lead for the chase book currently, but later
issues like 11,13, and 14-15 are selling well now too.

Thanos 13 even in lenticular is doing well now. If you bought them cover or 
less great job. I only bought a few.....

You can get a variant copy of DCeased anywhere. Bet you can get a copy much
cheaper in a few weeks after it comes out. I am looking forward to reading a 
set, but no way am I buying for resale due to the oversaturation of the book.

Die continues to sell well thru all prints currently. I look for the price of 4th print
to come down though with a 5th printing.

Wish I would have bought more of Thor 390 when I thought it was a keeper.

Power pack 1 is an easy $10-20 flip now in decent grade.

Exiles 3 is a $10 book currently or more

Hack and Slash seems to have a resurgence lately in sales.

Sold a couple of EW4 and even Bloodshot 1 is selling somewhat.
Can Vin Diesel make it a household name? Don't care I am sold out.
Valiant love on this board oversells these books.

What if 108 always a fun read and a very nice sale in high grade.

Deadly Class 1 still a $30-40 book currently.

Stars and STRIPES 0 $30-50 book in high grade. Not the easiest book
to find either. I went years without finding a copy.

Any Spawn newsstand in high grade sells well. Any issue. 

And lastly keep in mind that the market is still predominantly raw. 
We are the exception not the norm. Many here think the opposite sometimes
it can really lead to huge financial mistakes if you don't do your own research.

Relying on other spec sites and apps will end the end hurt you. Remember they 
are there for their own financial interest not yours.

 


 

 

The What If books tend to rise and fall regularly.  Always recommend grabbing when they are on the low.  What 104 is one of those and is doing well enough now.  Love the cover. 

I largely agree on Naomi 5/6.  Still seems like there are some not in the know and the story in issue 4 moved in the right direction.  Might be a little more room, but not for long. 

Glad the lenticular Thanos 13 is getting a bit of heat.  Price disparity always seemed a bit ridiculous to me.

I have no conflict of interest in listing all this information I do it for free. 

Those sites rely on others to tell them information so they can then broadcast it to their flock.
You are kidding yourself if you think they do it themselves.

The difference being is their financial interest is vested upon the fact that they grow their flock.
You think they bring out all that information for your own interest?

I know that above sounds all negative, but honestly its not. I have nothing against them.
I just don't try to make them anything, but what they are. I site vested on the fact that they are 
there to monetize the site to make money.

That's all you got from that? I post regularly on at least 4 or 5 different boards just like it.

Either produce a valid discussion or go away. Ridiculing me doesn't change anything
of the information I provided it only shows you have nothing in rebuttal.

issue 5 will have print run of 40-50k. 3 times issue 2 and 3. but 50k still is low for a longterm hold. if she get her powers and hero name it will be a future key if character sticks

You continually post misinformation that makes it seem as all speculation and market trend sites and groups are bad and only out for themselves. If you can't handle the heat then don't post that information. It's largely irrelevant to the rest of the information you post.

You’ve got to admit, his timing is pretty good, what with this week’s Action 1002/Naomi fiasco, perpetuated by Key Collector Comics.

What horse are you backing?  You seem to take offense to any comment calling out these sites.

Whats the misinformation? Those sites have a financial stake in the investment of the site and to monotonize it. 
I am not talking about small Facebook groups I belong to several of those as well.

Does the site charge money for services? Do they promote books
that sellers are selling that advertise within their site? Do they charge those sellers or will they in the future? Do
they charge for their services? Those are pretty basic questions. And before your say sure CGC is one of them.

I don't hate the sites I use them just like you. The difference is I harbor no disbelief that the sites don't have a conflict
of interest when listing or discussing some books. There have been repeated examples. To think otherwise is just naïve.  
We can continue to discuss this, but if you are looking from some ax that I have to grind there isn't one. I just don't
believe for one minute they are there to benefit me as the user as their business plan.

Does anyone else think the Naomi hype sounds a lot like Sentry when he came out?  Most powerful superhero ever type stuff... Bendis had his mitts in that one too.

Rhetorical question: they know they cant put suicide in a Spidey movie, right?

I, for one, love your updates... but this one might benefit from a little more, um, specificity.

i need all the help I can get sometimes.

annihilation, x-men vol 1, Uncanny vol. 2 3, X-men by Claremont and Lee Vol 1 2, Uncanny X-force, Infinity Gauntlet, Inferno, Fall of the mutants.  Their is a lot more but I only collect the x-men ones mostly.  Plus the fact that you get them for 40% off mostly, I doubt most people are paying near retail for them.

Seems that another comic has named dropped Naomi with a corresponding price jump -Blackest Night #7. I don't see any connection. Can someone enlighten (pun intended) us as to why?

Blackest Night #7 is the 1st White Lantern. Some are suggesting a Naomi connection via that route. Your mileage may vary.

The end of Naomi 4 is likely what is leading people to look at the lanterns.

I understand that was probably what his post was about, but it was not mentioned. Why not call it out if that was it?

Yes, I've made some great friends from other sites/groups. It's more of a community and people don't hide behind an avatar. In all my years on here I've only ever met one person from this board.
