SW High Republic #2 1:25 Witter Variant is popping a bit now. Last couple of sales have been in the $60-$70 range, and a CGC 9.8 pre-sale went for $349.99 on eBay today. You should be able to lock them up at LCSs for less than that this far out.

Venom #32 Aliens Cover...Book was sleeping for the last couple of weeks but is the standout thus far, and by the looks of it, the single best of those Aliens covers that will be released.  

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=venom+32+aliens&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=venom+32+alien&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&LH_Sold=1

The Wolverine Aliens variant was decent as well. 

That being said, the Venom #32 Aliens variant was a no-brainer, and the option for a 1:100 variant to recoup some of the initial investment was nice play by Marvel as well. (thumbsu

It's past FOC, so the prices should be increasing a bit. First app of the Nihil and the twins will make #2 a desirable issue in the long haul.

I ordered 10 High Republic #1s (A cover) from them. Has anyone received their order from them?

I actually didn't think my order went through until I noticed the payment being processed two weeks later. Even though I thought I set up an account with them initially, it is showing that I no longer have an account with them... even though I'm still getting their promotional emails... maybe I just ordered as a guest and didn't actually register?

They're in the UK and UK received High Republic this week not last week as the USA stores did.

Our couriers over here are struggling. Personally I didn't get my delivery from Diamond until Wednesday.

On top of that, the Royal Mail aren't delivering to certain parts of the country due to the amount of staff out with covid.

There'll be a delay :bigsmile:

I ordered them as well, and had them shipped to someone I know in London, but they haven't arrived yet.

If they're in one of these postal areas, there'll be a delay.

Even Ebay are on top of this one (Royal Mail staff are getting hit with covid)

  • Basildon (SS13, SS16)
  • Bow (E3)
  • Bury St. Edmunds (IP28-IP33)
  • Chelmsford (CM1-CM3)
  • Christchurch (BH23)
  • Daventry (NN11)

  • Enfield (EN1-EN3)
  • Grays (RM16-RM20)
  • Hampton (TW12)
  • Highbury (N5)
  • Hornsey (N8)
  • Horsham (RH12, RH13)
  • Ilford (IG1-IG6)

The only bright side to the delay is that the prices will keep running up by the time you get them, so you will capture a higher gain if you flip them.

Mighty Avengers 1 2013

Think I have a few newsstands. I’ll have to check. Should be easy to find as I’m organizing my modern newsstands currently. Thanks, it’s hard to keep track of all these books.

I don’t know if I’m the only one but I sure as heck underestimated Future State teen titans 1.

It is a nice lead in to the more full Red-X appearance in #2. I placed a small order just in case, but should have gone for more.

I like the FS Supergirl cardstock cover as well. Not one to go heavy on, but the couple of copies I bought will sell fast to some regulars once shows start locally again.

I sold several TTG 23s for decent change. I prefer not to put much in new DC as the company itself is not on firm ground currently.
That and there are quite a few copies out there for sale currently.

I think that the new DC will be fine. Based on snippets that came out after the staffing changes late last year, and one of Tynion's blogs over the holiday break, it is clear that there was an old comic market vs new comic market struggle and the old guard lost. The reality is AT&T needs to keep the DC IP churning for its streaming services, and they need to dump other underperforming assets that never made any sense for them to acquire (hello Direct TV, for which they will take a huge loss on). Personally, I think it would be cool if Amazon could buy DC from them, or even Marvel in a sci-fi/comics consolidation play (although that would likely never go through from an anti-trust perspective).

Until the stabilize more and my shop complains less about DC I will keep shying away from investing in them in 
new issues. I am happy to continue to sell their back issues. 

AT&T is not known for making smart decisions with any property as you mentioned above.
