Speculator Corner: There's Something About Captain Marvel #8…

Captain Marvel #8 is out this Wednesday. The start of a new chapter, Falling Star, which appears to feature a new Marvel Comics character, Star. And one who may be replacing Carol Danvers in the superheroic pantheon. Speculators are anticipating the first appearance of the character in this week's Captain Marvel #8 and have been hoovering up pre-orders as result. The comic is sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors. Cover price listings like this one don't last long, with some folk asking for $25.

Some have actually paid up to $6, with the Inhyuk Lee Carnage variant (which was not restricted) sold for $13, and the 1:25 cover sold for up to $99 – though cheaper copies are available.

And the virgin Inhyuk Lee cover from Unknown Comics, selling on their site for $20 still, has sold for $45 on eBay.

Whatever the truth is, it might be worth some stores instigating a one-per-customer policy – and for regular readers to make sure this issue is on your pull=-list with your comic store.
