A look ahead to this Wednesday

I usually give my picks of the week late Tuesday or at the latest early Wednesday. I also like to give a heads up on what else is coming out during the week that may be worth a pick up. Because of being at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend, I am a day behind. So here is a look ahead at what is being released this week.

1. Walking Dead #114 As the book continues to grow and so does the show, more people keep grabbing up issues. Always a good bet.

2. Rachel Rising #19 Still a great book with fantastic story and art by Terry Moore. It was optioned and since they all have a low print run could still be worth the pick up (one of my monthly titles.)

3. The Other Dead #1 The comic has three covers, a regular, a subscription, and an Obama Variant which has already been bringing notice to the series. . This has caused heat just due to the cover image. The story is about zombie animals. May have been delayed a week, but don’t sleep on this one.

4. Ghosted #3 I seriously think this will get made into a movie. It has Kirkman’s star power behind it as it comes out from Skyward.

5. Collider, I mean, Federal Bureau of Physics #3 is still one of Vertigo’s best reads.

6. Brain Boy #1 Dark Horse continues to expand it’s heroes line with this remake of a classic Golden Age character.

7. Eternal Warrior #1 I was never a fan of the original Valiant stuff, but the new launches have been fantastic. This one looks cool from the preview I read.

  1. Im guessing the 3d covers are a lot less of a speculators pick after week 1 didnt do so well. Walking Dead is always a good pick. I really am getting frustrated with Walking dead as an actual story though, find a group, kill the group, find another group and umm lets kill that group too…..wait this group is interesting, oh well lets kill em lol.

    Overall this week is dry and Im going to pick up very little. I’ll probably just get 1 of each of whatever I decide upon on Wednesday. What 3D titles are on YOUR the list next week?

  2. “Other Dead” subscription variant is no longer available. Is this something that should show up at lcbs 1 of 2 covers? If you can let us know if the release is on time, I’ll look out for it.

    Thanks!

      1. MAN-O-MAN, ComicFlipper, I feel something sinister brewing with this whole ‘HELD IN CUSTOMS’ issue regarding the ‘Other Dead’ Dave Dorman, 1:10, Obama ‘ANGRY-GUN TOTING’ Sub Variant cover!

        Following is just one article about the ‘reason’ the books are being held-up in customs. I hope you don’t mind me pasting links from elsewhere…please let me know if you would rather me not. I could send them to you directly first, and then you could do what you need to do before posting…

        Bleeding cool also has some early news on this issue as well…

        Oh well, make of it as you please, BUT I’M ON THE PHONE WITH MY SUPPLIER LIST AS WE SPEAK…hold on, phone call………………….ok, I’m back….WOO-HOO! I GOT 2 ISSUES OF THE SUB VAR RESERVED FOR ME (IF THE BOOKS EVER MAKE IT OUT OF CUSTOMS)…SORRY FOLKS, I HAVE TO GET OFF HERE AND MAKE SOME MORE PHONE CALLS… I think I may be able to hustle quickly and get 10-20 sub var’s on this one…..THE NEWS HASN’T REALLY BROKE YET, SO I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET DOWN MY WHOLE LIST BEFORE THE DAY IS OUT…HOPEFULLY!

        Oh, thanks again COMICFLIPPER for your hard work on this site…WE APPRECIATE IT!!!!!!!

  3. Did anyone ever find or pick up Run For Your Lives #1 from a couple weeks back? I looked in the stores and didn’t see it. Not to say there is demand for this (I don’t know), but it seemed the first of its kind and cool to have, which may generate demand later in itself. I see I can order directly from the website for $5.00, but wanted to ask around first. Anyone?

  4. I also agree with Larry, Sons of Anarchy should be on your radar, TFAW is out of them, that usually a good sign. Ebay pre-sales look pretty good. I also helps that TV show season premier is today and it has a huge fan base.

    1. I believe it is the 1:10 variant as as all the sites I have checked say that the sub variant cover is drawn by Kevin eastman (I may be wrong though as everywhere I looked does not have picture for cover)

      1. same here…I’m not seeing a pic for either the sub or 1:10 on any online shops. However in an article I did see the Obama cover…looks very cool and will for sure be in high demand.

  5. Folks, I posted this at 3:13 pm your time, in response to a COMICFLIPPER post above.

    Yes, the regular cover and the sub variant cover are normal. It’s the Obama cover that’s the Dave Dorman 1:10 variant!

    L8tr,

    …Peace!

  6. Update, 1 of my suppliers promised me two copies of the Obama cover, but I’m trying to get back in touch with him, as I have a feeling that he was also confused about the sub variant and the 1:10 Obama variant. Hopefully, he has it right, and I get 2 Obama covers…fingers crossed!

    I’ve noticed that it’s a lot of ‘finger’s crossed’ in this game!!!!!!!! Lol

    1. @comicflipper and Swanson6676 – Thanks for the correction and update. So…

      1) Is it still coming out tomorrow?
      2) Where can we order the incentive cover? (midtown/tfaw didn’t post it..)

      1. If I could edit, I would. My 2 questions clearly were meant as “pending” status. If anyone has an update to them, please share. Sorry and thanks.

  7. Received confirmation froom IDW that the Obama cover is indeed the 1:10 variant…as I write this I now see that you already confirmed this…haha. well then your confirmation is confirmed.

  8. Speaking of zombie animals.. anyone reading “The Final Plague”? I can rarely find any info on it, only two of the three local shops in my area ever have them and they usually only have a handful. It’s actually an interesting read. It’d be nice if it got more exposure. So far in issues 1 and 2, people are being eaten alive by infected rats. You can’t beat a good story where people are eaten by rats that are hard to kill. 🙂

  9. So let me get this right. Is ‘The Other Dead’ actually coming out tomorrow? Is it just the Obama variant that is held up in customs, or is it all the covers?

    1. Originally it was scheduled for tomorrow. After I posted that I found out they were in fact held up in customs to be sprayed for moths. So now I wonder of any copies will be NM by the time they get to stores.

      Sent from my iPhone

  10. THE OTHER DEAD – all 3 covers are scheduled for Sept 25th from Diamond. The 1:10 variant will be quite hard to find as most stores will only get 1 copy.
    RUN FOR YOUR LIVES not carried by Diamond so nobody has it except maybe the site that actually published it.
    SONS OF ANARCHY – popular TV show – I have sold already 10 copies at $6.99 each

  11. I forgot i even ordered Sons of anarchy…..guess I have that on my list.
    Sons of anarchy season 6 starts tonight on FX, just in case anyone watches it.
    So since collider changed its name is the second printing the new first print?
