Has any “first preview” had staying power in the past? Do you guys see TJ 1 sustaining pricing or going higher in the future?

Kirkman was asked what the first appearance of Invincible is recently on Twitter:

“The first appearance of Invincible is Invincible issue 1. I’ve never known a series of preview pages for a book to count as a first appearance. That’s not an original story or guest appearance, it’s just pages from issue 1”

The Tech Jacket book is a printed preview of a few pages and there’s argument over if it’s even first. MOTU #1 and Savage Dragon 102 are sometimes also claimed to be first

1 - what the hell does Kirkman know. He should stick to writing comics, not selling them

2 - I forgot about motu1 and savage dragon.

3 - not sure about staying power, just noting that i've seen an increase in those books, so if you have them, sell them or get ready to

4 - #1 is a joke

Solid - you got me in the first half 

I’m not totally convinced that the time to sell is now- if people are buying those books now, they will be looking for them again once more footage or the actual show hits.

Invincible feels different in a lot of ways than the traditional “tv show” book hype cycle

yeah i think maybe why the others are priced higher is that they are less available

i don't think i've ever gotten more than $5 for the motu and gi joe books

I think the gold foil MOTU 1 sells for $10-20. A lot of these big time indie characters like goon and hellboy also have multiple preview firsts in diff comics

some books that we forgot to mention during the Invincible talk (a few pages ago) was Noble Causes 3, variant and Tech Jacket that contain Invincible preview. Those have started to see a rise

All the Noble Causes 3 seem expensive right now, but looking at completed sales on ebay they are not really THAT much more than what I sold araw  9.0-9.2 copy for like 9 or 10 years ago, which was like $25-$30 when invincible 1 was wayyyyyy cheaper than now. What did #1 cost back then?

Kirkman can say that, but it in no way acts as an edict to the market.

I don’t really like the trend, but there’s no denying that collecting of various previews, and character appearances in promo items is on the rise.

You planning on putting any up here? I might shop with you...

And yeah they have maybe 3 more at 9.99 but they are a little finicky about letting you buy a bunch of copies of this book or that book. They still have a bunch of the Captain Marvel 23's, both covers, which I had flipped a few times for small profits. But they didn't let me buy another yesterday because my account shows I've bought a couple already. Even though that book came out months ago and they literally have 2 dozen copies left lol... part of why I usually go to a different shop in town...

Yeah probably when they come in. I still have a couple of boxes of ASM 55s I have to put up as well once I get all these
package out.

I sell all those preview books. Who am I to say what is what. Price accordingly it will sell.

I bought several presale 9.8s at $49 the first week they were listed.

I would have bought all those at $9.99 I would even go back and buy the VF copies. 

Where I failed was I didn't buy any Virgins and I was on the website I just decided to buy Presale 9.8s instead. doh! 

The Gleason website? Weren't all the presale 9.8's virgins anyway?

Those were for the virgins several sites sold 9.8s cheap at beginning
Now that doesn't guarantee all get mine, but I like to dream.
