Week in Review: July 17
This week there are three books I want to talk about.
The big book of the week is Captain Marvel #8. Mark Brooks confirmed on social media that Captain Marvel #8 will feature the first appearance of a new villain, Star. For unknown reasons, Brooks deleted all of his posts about Captain Marvel #8. This book has three covers including a 1:25 and a carnage-ized variant cover. On ebay the 1:25 variant cover has multiple sales online at $120, and the cover A and B have been selling for $15 to $25. Marvel solicitations indicate that this character is going to be around for at least the next three issues. Based on how marvel uses this character these books might be worth holding on to.
Another book that has been selling well online is the cover price Cover B Variant for Jugheads Time Police #2. This is the second volume of Jugheads Time Police. The Cover B by Tito Pena is a Back to the future cover homage and has multiple sales online at just under double cover price at $7.
The last book that comes out this week that I want to talk about is X-Liefelds #1. Taken from the books original Diamond solicitation, “Liefeld’s rejected, forgotten creations find inspiration from their creator’s own stories and travel back in time to jealously stop his greatest characters from ever becoming popular.” This book has a few covers and a few sales online averaging around $9. (The cover price is $4.99). There is also a 1 in 5 variant cover for this title. Speculation aside, this is a book I really want to check out.
That is your week in review! Let me know in the comments (or on social media) if I missed any books you think are spec worthy!
