IMAGE COMICS 2013 – Sold Out – Out Of Print Comics

ImageComics2013SoldOut

Diamond Distributors usually keeps some extra stock of all ongoing IMAGE titles available for retailers.  This usually means in most cases you can go back at least the last 4 issues and can still order copies of any issue.   Only surprise sell out books will completely vanish from inventory which may lead to 2nd printings for some books.   This is not very common for Image.  However its very common for Marvel.

Image has seen a boom in interest in their new series during the past 2 years.   Hotter new titles sell out immediately and in many cases even before the actual release date of a new #1 issue.

I have personally looked up every single Image Comic that Diamond currently has in stock.

This list includes all 38 ongoing titles as of August 2013 release date.

The list below is the exact list of all available comics (1st printings only) that you can STILL GET your local comic shop to order for you.

This list is also interesting because it shows which titles continually sell out each month.

If you are a speculator there are two things that have to happen for a comic to go up in value.

First of  all Diamond needs to sell out, secondly most local comic shops need to sell out.

Therefore this list showing us what books have officially sold at Diamond will give you an idea of what books to hunt for.

Just selling out is still not a guarantee that a comic will go up in value.  BUT it MUST sell out if it will have any chance of going up in value in the future.   So far the most marked up back issues sold out that came out this year include Nowhere Men, Peter Panzerfaust, East Of West, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth issues.

Thanks to Diamond Comics database for the most accurate details below.
