Speculator Corner – Peter Panzerfaust, Nowhere Men, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth And Sixth Gun

Peter Panzerfaust #1 CGC 9.8 sold for $500 while a raw copy sold for $300. and issue 2 sold for $76. issue 3 for $25, issue 4 and issue 5 for $14, issue 6 for $15, issue 7 for $13 and issue 8 for an astounding $26 – you get the picture. Issue 9 is next week. There will be queues.

Panzerfaust is most definitely the new Morning Glories. Which of course was the new Chew. Which was the new Walking Dead. Either way, the aftermarket in Image Comics is hotting up again.

The Nowhere Men has seen its first issue sell for $130 with a 9.8 CGC, while a raw copy of issue 1 sold for $80 and a Thought Bubble 500 copy limited edition is at $157. Issue 2 is already at $20 with issue 3 at $13.

But the surprise of recent weeks has been Todd The Ugliest Kid In The World breaking $25 for its first issue, only out for a week-and-a-bit.

With Revival, Happy, Bedlam, The Manhattan Projects and Fatale still performing well, it’s not just Image Comics that can do this with original projects. Oni’s The Sixth Gun has seen copies of issue 1 sell for $80 and issue 2 sells for $20, with the FCBD issue selling for $35.

In the bad old days, speculation used to reward the unoriginal, the embossed cover, the first appearance of a character. Now they seem to reward concepts that were initially somewhat ignored, only for their quality to increase the public’s attention and the price rise has become a reward for early fans, and an aid for the creator to increase sales of current issues. I see it being used for good, rather than evil.

Which, you know, is nice.
