Ditto as are most of the Marvel/DC crossovers. There is a whole generation of collectors whose minds are consistently blown when I show them these things. Many times they ask for Amalgam, Marvel vs DC 1-4, or JLA/Avengers and didn't know others existed. Sometimes they know about one or two but didn't know things like Supes/Hulk, Surfer/Lantern, Cap/Bats, etc exist. Batman/Punisher and vice versa seem to be the most common that I find by far though I NEVER leave them in $1 boxes. 

No love for Archie vs Punisher? Sups Bats vs Aliens Predator 1-2 went up last year as did Batman vs Predator 1

Show me some numbers, because I'm not really seeing heat here. hm

What do people think about this Star Wars High Republic book? One of the LCS's in the area still has some of the ratio variants available at cover (under $20)... thoughts? Trying to find the cover I saw online but having a bit of trouble, sorry

You sure the ratio variants are cover? Although even the regular variants are worth getting at cover. Pick up a few for me. ;)

I misspoke, sorry. I meant they aren't marked up as much as this shop marks up ratio variants that sit... which is counterproductive which is why they have like 10 longboxes full of old ratio variants no one wants lol 

They're well above cover but they're around $17 or so

AFAIK there are two ratio variants:

Purple cover with two figures on it (1:10)

Brownish cover with one fighter and a green lightsaber (1:25)

The 1:25 would be worth it for $17; 1:10 is selling for around $20 right now.

This is the 1:25 variant. If you’re seeing this book for $17 buy it quickly. Completed sales on eBay $75

It'll probably get snapped up before I get in today as I waited until NCBD but I'll try and get it, thanks for your help!

E: Thank you everyone else as well, much appreciated!

Still curious how those "limited to 600" variants will do - especially if there's an animated series in the future regarding the High Republic ~

Aargh. I am sorry to hear that. Thank you for giving me the heads up on the Virgins from his site. 

 

High Republic was always a long term play. The people flipping them now will be missing out on the big gains. Disney has said it is a multi-year multi-media play all along. The first three phases have been announced from a publishing perspective, and the film/TV play is yet to come. The first HR related D+ show, Acolytes, has been announced and there will be more coming as time goes on. Buy your copies for cheap now and hold for a bit.

True, but Filoni and Favreau seem to be focused on the events after the Original Trilogy, whereas the Acolyte is a Kennedy-controlled project, for the most part ~ It's very telling that all but one show take places before the Prequels and Disney/Lucasfilm understands that the money is in Grogu (Baby Yoda) and Luke Skywalker, hence why they're staying WELLLLLL clear from that awfully-underdeveloped trilogy they cobbled together years ago - even to the point of erasing canon, such as Baby Yoda being Luke's first student instead of "Ben", for example lol

The point I'm trying to make is that although Kathleen Kennedy is the head of Lucasfilm: the buck stops at the two Bobs - Bob Iger most of all as he has greenlighting power (he greenlit the Sequel Trilogy, Solo, Mandalorian etc) ~

Another consideration is when does the Acolyte take place in relation to the High Republic and the Adventures: The Acolye takes place during the "end of the High Republic" and we know the High Republic is a 200-year-period, after the events of the Old Republic and that most of the characters are human so it's very unlikely we'll see them in that show ~

But that changes if they announce an early High Republic animated or live show - but that depends on the success of the comics ~

Also, from a DC perspective, check out FS TT 1 and then the upcoming TT Academy 1. 

FS TT 1 brings Red-X into continuity, and TT Academy 1 will introduce the character that becomes Red X.

FS Teen Titans 1 is a one page cameo last page to my knowledge.  I'm more banking on #2 cover B I think

Yeah, the FSTT 2 B cover is a nice one.

[Future State: Teen Titans #2 (Cover B Dustin Nguyen Card Stock Variant) (Product Image)]

 

TT Academy looks like the DC answer to Strange Academy. That title would likely become an animated show.
