DC Rebirth

A lot of crazy stuff happening this week so lets get right to it.

This week Henchgirl has been on fire – with the Scout Comics issue #1 selling for $70 to $90 online. Its not even the first appearance of Henchgirl and is just old material reprinted! Its crazy!

The big news though (as covered by Bleedingcool and CHU) is the leaking of this week’s issue of Rebirth #1, the starting of DC’s new universe (or whatever they’re going for at the moment). Someone (apparently in the press) received a copy and started revealing spoilers of the book on Reddit. This person has since been banned on Reddit, however, it is a very genuine post.

So what did we learn? Wally West is back but that has been hinted at for months. The big news is the Watchmen are now members of the DCU. What’s more is that Dr. Manhattan created the DC Universe. That finger on the cover of Rebirth #1? That’s a swipe at Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam with Dr. Manhattan. This also means that Alan Moore created the DC Universe.

Speculation wise: Watchmen #1‘s are selling like no tomorrow on ebay but there are a few other books to be looking for.

Watchmen #12 – In this book Dr. Manhattan makes a very poignant exit scene. Suggesting an early appearance of the NEW DC Universe.

Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan #4 – Dr. Manhattan creates his first universe. This book is already selling for $30 to $35 – with no combo-pack variants available for sale online since the news. This book seems to have great quick flip potential as it’s currently being pinned as the origin of the DC Rebirth Universe.

The last book that you should be looking for which is already selling for big bucks (five confirmed sales of CGC 9.8 copies selling above $400 – when GPA is $300) is DC Spotlight #1. This is the first appearance of both Frank Miller’s Dark Night AND the Watchmen. Raw copies have been selling for $40 to $80 in ranging conditions. This book has great potential for growth as Watchmen begins to be built into the DCU.

  • No kidding! This past weekend was nuts if the DC leak turns out to be accurate! I was lucky enough to purchase a Dr. Manhattan #4 combo at my local comic shop that morning for cover price. No idea what that would go for. Haven’t seen any online. I am inclined to hold on to this one just in case the spec is true. If so this one could turn out to be a pretty big key down the line…If it fizzles, I paid cover and no big deal. I think the book to get is DC Spotlight #1… With the Watchmen entering into DC continuity that preview is going to heat up and probably keep climbing for the foreseeable future….or until the next re-boot five years from now. After that one, of course Watchmen #1 will be a very good bet! Great book on its own merit!

    I was lucky to get two copies at a LCS going out of business at 80%. Only paid 80 cents each, put one the bay for BIN/BO got lots of offers minutes after listing and finally got a BIN 5 hours later!

    • What u buy?

        It went for $35 BIN. I kept one for my PC. And the shop was in Sherman Oaks.

    • That’s the way to do it! It looks like DM #4 looks like it will hold a lot of its new value going down the line, but if you paid 80 cents and sold anywhere from 30 to 40 that just awesome! I have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that DC Spotlight is going to gain a ton of attention moving forward. I never like to pay $50 plus for comics with only previews in it, but since the Watchmen are going to be in the DC u I can only see this book climbing. I pulled the trigger on a high grade for the pc for $60. Not an end of the world price at all, but still don’t like paying that for quick peek at the characters. We will see if it is money well spent in the next few months.

    I predict Dr. Manhattan will team up with (or fight) Jack Kirby for the MC/DC meta-crossover of the century.
