I didn't look at eBay sales, but I know the 1:25 variant for Howling Commandos of SHIELD sold out at midtown (I think I got the last NM copies).  It's a book that I think is a keeper for a minute (not just hte 1:25, but all the ratios and the A cover).  The speculation is not so much about a Disney plus show as it is that Marvel confirmed its Trademark on the character Glyph (whose first appearance is in that issue) a the same time it confirmed trade marks for Spirits of Vengeance, Helstrom and one other character/group (which I don't remember now for some reason).  Marvel doesn't do a lot of that, the character Glyph is a strong young female hero with Egyptian heritage and fits the mold for a character they will either drop on Hulu, Disney+ , in the MCU or some combination thereof or at worst are sufficiently interested in that they will certainly give her a boost on the pages of books.  Note that Hitmonkey (for example) is also a member of the HCOS so it appears that they may be thinking of doing something there too.  It's a book I'm hot on (until the buy in looks like Naomi #1  then I'll start bad mouthing it lol).   

Would that be the Offenders?

What is the better cover to own of the howling commandos of shield.  Personslly i think the reg cover is the nicest, but i assume the hip hop variant will be the most valuable as the cover is black?

Avengers 12 keeps doing pretty well. I actually bought a run of avengers just to throw the 12 up to pay for the rest.

turns out it’s a NEWSSTAND edition

begin the vitriol over the rarity discussion

My hunch would be the highest ratio variant, followed by the next highest, etc., and then the A cover amongst the order-alls. But who knows. Appealing cover art *can* make the regular cover more desirable than an incentive. Whether it *will*…

Reviewing some books over the last few weeks doing well. I usually stay a few days behind hot books
for both review and so I can find copies. :banana:


Bloodstone 1 - Skyrocketing - I had at least a dozen copies many years ago and I sold a decade too early lol.
 

 

This book has been up and down multiple times; any particular reason this time?

JSC sales are insane.  I was all prepped before the release Saturday of his Black Cat 1 variants and still barely got checked out before they all went out of stock.  4 minutes after they went on sale they were gone.

That was pretty much the situation on the eve of the '90s collapse. People were so busy pouring money into the *next* big thing, that no one was spending money on the books already purchased exclusively for re-sale.

The 1:25 is the winner ... the hiphop variants are hit or miss and usually its contingent on whether they were print to incentives.  I think this will probably look a lot like Thanos 13 with the A cover selling for more than the 1:10 variants :screwy: but hopefully I'm wrong.  I also can't remember whether the hip hop variant is a 1:10 for 100% certain (I would have to look into that), but given the option to buy the A covers or the hiphop variants at or around the same price, I am still buying the A covers.  I've learned my lesson on too many other books (TT12, Naomi 1, Thanos 13, etc.).

JSC books. I am doing buying his variants. When I can't get a copy or two 5 minutes after they go up then 

its not worth it to me and I will just buy reg covers. Some sleepers of his Southern Nightgown and 
Spookshow International 1 both are JSC covers that are harder to find.

There has been rumors circulating about her coming to Hulu, but there were no verified stories or anything substantial that I can find.  I think a lot of it is was tee leaf reading after the Hulu announcements and then piling on after it hit the CBSI top ten, but its an awesome book that I feel like a bone head for not having in my collection.

Spawn 240 just one to pick lately anything almost from 220-240ish and 190 to 200 seems to cook.
Newsstand sales in high grade do well as well of almost any Spawn issue. I just sold a few the 
last few days.

 

 

What numbers do newsstands run to, I thought they stopped around issues numbered in the low-to-mid 100s?

The highest I have seen are in the late 120s. I dont know when they stopped.

 I ddint mean that newsstands went that high  only they sell well in high grade due to scarcity on top of it.
