Last Saturday, I finally got the time to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. Yes. I know the movie came out in July 8. Yes. I know I blog about comic books so I should see every comic book movie that comes out on opening day or opening weekend.
So anyway, I will not be telling the story in this blog so no spoilers for you. However, I will talk about how the movie affects comic books.
I blog about Ghost on May 21. Ghost in Ant-Man and the Wasp
“Ghost first appeared in Iron Man 219 (June 1987). Ghost is a super-villain who has the ability to phase through objects.
A recent copy of Iron Man 219 CGC 9.6 sold for 193.50.”
Let check how well the comic book is doing. There were three Iron Man 219 CGC 9.6 sold within 2 months. One went for $274.99 on July 3, second one sold for $300.00 on July 25 and the other sold for $130.38 on July 27 (ouch!). The first 2 was buy-it-now. The last one was a one-day auction that explains why it was sold so low-not many people saw the auction.
I blog about Bill Foster on July 13. Bill Foster in Ant-Man and the Wasp
“He first appeared in Avengers #32 (September 1966) published by Marvel Comics written by Stan Lee and drawn by Don Heck. Bill Foster started out as a biochemist for Tony Stark’s factory. Later he worked as an assistant to Hank Pym. Bill acquired his power by using Pym’s formula. He has superhuman strength and size manipulation.
A recent copy of Avengers #32 CGC 9.6 sold for $430.00.”
Let check out well the comic book is doing. There was one copy Avengers #32 CGC 9.6 sold 2 days ago (August 26) for $338.00. The book went down by almost $100.
In conclusion there is a not enough sample size to value the impact of the movie affecting comic books value. Let me know your thoughts.
