Week in Review September 21
Scout comics keeps producing books that sell out and double in price on ebay. Many of the titles Scout publishes are originally published elsewhere, Like Henchgirl and Once Our Land – both of these titles originated as self-published titles, with Once Our Land only seeing publication after its successful Kickstarter campaign.
Scout Comics announced at SDCC this year that they are publishing another series after its successfully funded Kickstarter campaign – Girrion by Tom Lintern. The book comes out on October 5 and already the first print kickstarter edition is starting to heat up online. The first print Girrion #1 is selling for $25 to $30 online but can still be found on the original website for $5. A great book that could increase when Scout reprints it!
As discussed heavily on many websites, Animosity #2 sold out before its release last week and is selling for $10 and the Second print Animosity #1 selling for $25! Anything Animosity seems is hot off the presses!
Another book that has started seeing interest on the secondary market is DC’s Question #17 from 1987. This book has been selling anywhere from $15 to $35.
Why? This book features the first appearance of Rorschach in the DC Universe. Published two years after Alan Moore’s Watchmen, Question #17 features the first appearance of Rorschach outside of the Watchmen universe. This could prove to be a very important book now that DC is building its new universe with the integration of the Watchmen characters.
