    Terry asked for comments so here it is!

    This was actually my first watch, I’m more of a reader than a listener (ex-wives can attest to that!) but good to put a face and a voice to your comments Tony!

    I enjoyed watching, good to hear the differing view points and the deeper reasonings, especially on why something isn’t a good spec. But why the censorship?! 🙊🙊

  2. I always look forward to the Tuesday night and Wednesday spec postings here! Liking this new spec video as well. Thanks to all you guys who post here every week and give us some great information.

    Tony great shirt!!!!

    No love for Black Hammer Annual #1? 😦 Kidding, kidding … not sure it’s something for spec, but it should be a great read. Really looking forward to seeing other artists’ interpretations of these characters. Go God Country!!

      See my picks of the week. It is in there as a returning favorite. However Dark Horse print above demand and as a spec it’s probably not a great choice for spec, but as a reader, yes.

      • JCH says:

        Ah yes, and so you did in the Returning Favorites section. Sorry about that. I just picked up the annual at my local shop… really love the quality of the cover… nice addition to collection and can’t wait to read it after work. Will be a hard wait for when issue #7 comes out in late March. Keep up the *censored* great videos… really like the way you and Terry provide different perspective for picks.

    It seems like the number of one-per-store variants is increasing dramatically, pretty soon every book is going to have one. Watch for prices to crash. Really liked the addition of all the different cover variant mentions here, I can see them without looking it up elsewhere. Also Barry I think the censored part was for comedic value, I didn’t mind it. Great improvement good job guys!

    • Anthony says:

      Oh the censorship was done purely for fun I am not afraid to say *censored*. Dang it, maybe I can’t.

    • Barry W says:

      lol yeah I know, I was being ironic!

    • MCSports says:

      I was thinking same thing about variants while watching the picks. It seems that if you don’t get that hard to find variant for the new #1 issue these days you’re out of luck..over the past few months/weeks we saw Seven 2 Eternity and God Country heat up without them, but now Image is starting in..will it be wise to buy a good ol’ regular #1 cover anymore going forward? lol
