WAITING FOR TOMMY: RETURN TO SPECULATION
By Richard Johnston

SHORT TERM PROFIT

This new Street Fighter from Udon. It's on the back-end of the nostalgia titles, hasn't caught on in orders like many of the previous books, is from a first-time publisher and has been ordered at 30,000 for the first issue. The #0 issue, both San Diego and Chicago versions, were limited print runs that sold for $3 each. They were selling on eBay for $50 at one point, when copies were still available at cons. They're doing one more run of the issue 0, for some Canadian con. Issue #1 is totally about exponential sales. 1) Appealing to multiple outside audiences, Asian Arcade fans, manga readers, nostalgia buys. 2) A Joe Madureira 12 page story. Joe doesn't draw for comics anymore. Joe on Battle Chasers was hot. Joe on Street Fighter will be mental. 3) It actually looks okay as a comic as well. You might even want to read it. Make sure you buy and sell within the month however. Sell your issue #0's as issue #1 ships. Get in, get out. Keep a couple back in case it goes ballistic, but supply the demand that will be there before the trades and second prints kick in and suck it away. A CGC might also be in order.

 

BATMAN #612 RARE BLACK AND WHITE COVER - SIGNED VERSION

Cerebus #300 is about to hit. For a very brief period, Cerebus will hit the comics headlines everywhere. Any Cerebus you can snap up cheap, you'll be able to offload at above cover price. For about three days.

Ghostbusters. When it ever comes out. The fanbase for this is huge and they don't go to comic shops. Or rather, they will for this one issue. The publisher, 88MPH, is an unknown quantity for many people, there's no way orders are going to match demand. This could even possibly sell at Transformers levels - hell what else are the Ghostbusters fans going to spend their money on? And there seem to be loads of them, and they are rabid.

American Splendor. Whatever you can find. The self-published issues, Dark Horse issues. raid the quarter bins and shove them on eBay. Fast. Faster than that, come on, come on, no one thought they'd be able to make money off this book, the film publicity is a very brief window to zig where others zagged. Just don't be stuck with a pile of the depressing true-life tales of a jazz-loving janitor. You won't survive.

Joss Whedon writing Buffy-related comics. Every time he starts writing a new comic, the retailers forget the last time. And a host of Buffy boys and girls raid the shop the moment it opens. This Buffyverse series that Cameron Stewart is drawing a Whedon story for? Watch for it. Stock high, get rid of it quickly.

Anything that's exclusive to a comics convention. Okay, it'll never actually be that exclusive, the likes of Graphittii and Udon don't throw away any leftovers after the show, but it'll be fairly exclusive, and a good cache of stuff; but sell quickly on eBay before anyone else (during the weekend if possible) does.
