Default What comics to sell now?

Hey, I'm wondering if you guys have any opinions on what books are good to sell right now? (maybe at their peak, or are just going to continue decreasing). I may be wrong, but it seems that Revival isn't so hot anymore.
I've got some Revival (3-6), Todds, and Nowhere Men (2,3) that I've got a few of so maybe I should put a couple of each up for sale?

peter panzerfaust is the only book id be selling right now. Todd you can get maybe 10 bucks if your lucky. How much is 10 dollars to you? Revival will only continue to rise in price.
Nowhere men is tricky. The prices are high right now. I might consider selling a run, thats is if i had another to hold onto.

Just sold 2 Revival #1's at $46 and $45 + S&H. I wouldn't consider that to be cooling off.

I also think Peter Panzerfaust has peaked unless it gets approved for a tv show. I Feel the Prices will stay as they are. I Sold one of my #1 in VF for $165 DLVD. I will sell 3 more and keep one for myself.
Flipping is gambling just be happy you made a good profit and keep a few for your PC.

I feel Revival and Nowhere still have more upside to go. Again if you decide to sell be happy with your profit and as JAY Z would say ON to the next one.!

Wondering this about Nowhere Men also...sell my Thought Bubble variant or keep a little bit longer...? I know I'd be happy with the return on it now since I got it for super cheap. But I don't want to have to post in the "Sellers Remorse" thread a few months down the road either...

Nowhere Men still has legs ...IF your Thought Bubble is of a 9.6-9.8 quality have it graded. If one has quantity of a HOT book (say Nowhere Men #1 regular) the best strategy,IMO, is to sell enough into the buying frenzy to recoup your original investment. Than there won't be any second guessing. If a book starts to stall it is easy to sell off as they are free and since they are free it makes it easier to hold till the peak . Congrats and Good Luck

I think the frenzy over superior spider-man #1 has reached it's peak. Especially with the quesada variants. I see these selling on eBay for less than cover. Also with the original Peter Parker lingering around, I think people get the impression that this whole doc ock story arc will be short lived

Thanks for the feedback on this. I would love to get it graded, but it's signed by Eric Stephenson. So it would come back with the green label unfortunately.



But looking at the last couple of sales on this, that hasn't seemed to affect the price too much.

Sold my Peter Panzerfaust run (1-5) a few weeks ago. It was hot at the time and I had $15 invested in it and it returned $300. Take the money. Holding Todd and Revival runs and variants until prices stabilize. Revival TV show looks to be in the toilet with ABC's announcement of The Returners. Tim Seeley just can't catch a break.

It does sound horrible. They did the same thing after they got pitched Fables and turned around and made Once Upon a Time. They claim The Returners is based on a book that hasn't been released yet and is by an author that has nothing else published.
