I bought 2 when they were cover price. Along with HEATHEN, which also just got optioned for a film.

lol - just seen it too many times with these independents that they shoot up for a short time after optioned announcements etc and quite often nothing more happens.

Which reminds me I could not sell my Heathen #1 for below cover price sso I put them away in my remote storage. It is going to be a pain finding them again and by the time I find them - prices are probably back to where they were before


Yeah, that is what ducks about hot books. If you don't get them listed right away, they are not really worth listing by the time you get to them.

Look at Sheltered #1 and Wytches #1, for example.

Both were optioned and had a lot of hype and decent sale prices.....go on eBay now and they are good for cover price.

There are dozens of other books that this applies to.

But if the series have been confirmed by Netflix, and not just optioned, the books generally won't nosedive...too hard, anyway.

Yeah.

It's called experience.

Grading guides will get you started, but there is no substitute for experience.

no need for apologizing.

The value of that one will depends on the movie - so can go either way.

Anyway - still a nice one


@Comicnewbie - with the second trailer just released price for IM #219 has picked up again so if you believe you overpaid you can get out of it now 😛

@poka. Nah I will keep it. When I got it from you it was bc I liked it. Not bc it was tied to a future movie.

DESCENDER is another one, so is Sabrina TEENWITCH.. but going along with that.. sometimes they get optioned, but nothing is EVER done with them because it is just an attempt to c*ckbl*ck other studios from picking up something righteous.

I put my Fail Safe #1 for auction, which goes LIVE on Sunday 6:15 PDT.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/332640975849?ssPageName=STRK:MESCX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1557.l2649

I am pretty sure I will put up some of my Heathens up too.

again, it doesn't go live to Sunday night.

Dag brah.... $7.50 for your Failsafe 1?

That's why I only run auctions on books that are super hot.

Part of the problem might be that the comic was listed as "Fail Safe" instead of "Failsafe".

If FAILSAFE from Vault is becoming hot, I wonder if that means that INSURGENT from DC is also becoming hot?

Didn't notice that but yeah, that would probably hinder search results, probably made it show up as "related searches", way at the bottom.

Still, if you don't have a very large eBay following, not a top rated seller....9 times out of 10, you'll get boned with auction listings.

I got $180 for a raw copy of Totally Awesome Hulk 22, back before any slabbed 9.8's hit the market, via an auction listing.

That book was crazy hot back than, it still is....but I guaranteed a Universal Grade of 9.8, from CGC or CBCS, and stated that in the auction title.😍😍😍😍

Failing those sort of initiatives, I probably would have gotten about $50-$100 (tops) for the book.
