Spider-Gwen Shadow Clones #2 – We gave you guys/gals a heads-up about this series. If you’re a first-appearance collector, you need to be on top of each new release here. Each story will introduce various mash-ups of Spider-Gwen as various characters and villains. This Wednesday it’ll be the first appearance mash-up of Spider-Gwen and Sandman.
Junk Rabbit #1 – First appearance of a new character in their own series. Written and drawn by Jimmie Robinson.
Disney/Villains Scar #1 – Publisher, Dynamite Entertainment, will have a big hit on their hands this Wednesday. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea to have the Lion King villain, Scar, appear in their own solo story. It’s brilliant really. There is a reason why comic readers/collectors have always received a Darth Vader story and not so much Luke, lots and lots of Thanos stories, etc. The villain usually has a story readers and viewers gravitate to. The ‘love to hate’ play comes in. Marvel did a fantastic job in solidifying the displeasure with the Thanos character, but the majority of moviegoers actually anticipated his scenes and relished it when they saw the purple guy. As we’ve said for so long, Thanos is the modern-day Darth Vader. The bad guys have clout, no denying it. The good guys are usually a bore. This Wednesday, the villain from the Lion King film makes his solo comic debut.
Not his first appearance though. Back in 1994, Marvel released a Lion King #1 comic, a two-part series. Scar’s silhouette appears on Issue number two’s cover (Lion King #2). Although Scar appears in the 1994 comic, this should not diminish the importance of Scar’s first solo series. We predict a massive interest in this series, in this debut comic. There are so many variants to choose from as well, it’ll make your head spin. Writer Chuck Brown and artist Trevor Fraley begin to weave their tale for the comic book masses, and man it will be massive. Buckle in.
As far as sales go for the Lion King #1 (1994) comic goes. Only one recent sale of a CGC 9.0 sold for $50. A raw NM copy fetched $10. So, obviously, a graded 9.8 will garner some cash. A collector can literally buy the pair for as little as $14. Now, here’s is more good news. There are only 77 total CGC graded copies in existence right now. Right now. Only 15 graded copies sit at the highest tier at 9.8. Ready for even more good news? Lion King #2 has only SEVEN graded books, with only three sitting at the top tier at 9.8. A CGC Lion King #1 9.6 grade is sitting out there right now at a Buy It Now price of $105.
So, how is this “good news” for a collector? The regular reader here has already figured this out and have already bought their copies from reading the previous paragraph, but we’ll explain so hopefully there will be enough for the newbies here. If and probably when, the Scar #1 comic sells out and receives high praise, not only will the new release show an increase in the aftermarket, but the interest will immediately focus on his first appearance from 1994. The market will embrace the raw copies and more so, the graded market. The graded market because the numbers there are so low right now. Right now. Maybe it’s even due to a short print run too? Not even sure, we’re assuming that may be the case as well. We DO know there is zero desire to get these comics graded though. That may change after Wednesday. Well, before Wednesday because you’re here on InvestComics.
