Anthony from http://www.comicsheatingup.net flying solo as Terry Hoknes is off this week, discussing the news of the week and the hot new comics out this Wednesday.
A few books to think about.
Batgirl Vol 5 #13 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover – has some buzz. Might be worth grabbing one for cover if nm+. Maybe Quick Flip. Easy pass though also.
Wonder Woman Vol 5 #27 Cover B Variant Jenny Frison Cover – Always grab Frison WW B covers in nm+ for the stash.
Shirtless Bear-Fighter #2 Cover D Incentive Skottie Young Baby Beariant Cover – Grab this if you can get for cover or right over. Maybe a $10 book. Quick flip. SBF seemed to be well received.
Gwenpool #18 Cover B Variant Jim Lee X-Men Trading Card Cover- Hot chick cover white queen maybe worth stashing one in nm+
The Whalen variants seem to be liked so Id grab 1 of each in nm+ for the stash.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol 5 #72 Cover B Variant Tom Whalen Cover
Transformers Lost Light #8 Cover C Variant Tom Whalen Cover
Star Wars 40th Anniversary Covers are a must grab for me. Make sure no color rubbing, must be nm+. A few have caught some heat, but I mostly grab for PC.
Street Fighter & Friends Swimsuit Special 2017 Cover E Incentive Joe Vriens Homage Variant Cover- grab for cover price, $7 tops. A few good presales, but still avail at midtown for $12. Small chance.
Art Covers for my PC
Blue Beetle (DC) Vol 4 #11 Cover B Variant Tyler Kirkham Cover – sweet kirkham. Art, no spec.
All New Soulfire Vol 2 #5 Cover C Incentive Fan Yang Variant Cover – Art, no spec. I like this artist and collect her books.
Jim Hensons Power Of The Dark Crystal #5 Cover B Variant Sana Takeda Subscription Cover – I collect the Sana Takeda covers. Art, no spec.
I do like the Middleton variant on Batgirl. He makes her look so sweet and innocent. Just bubbly happy to be fighting crime. Jenny Frison is a must pick up for her cover work. I just don’t see either showing short term gains but long term all big name artists doing DC B covers are good pickups. As for the rest, wait until Tuesday’s picks of the week. Many are on mine, Poyo’s, and Mel’s.
Middleton’s B covers on Aquaman Rebirth have been phenomenal. Nice to see him getting some due recognition for his work.
Any news about replica?
Not yet. Still in a holding pattern. Waiting for some news. I even tweeted Aftershock and asked if they were doing a panel or making a big announcement.
Hi Anthony – in average how long time does it take you guys to produce the weekly video.
Normally it takes me about 30 minutes to film. About an hour of you include prep time. Terry shoots his after we discuss things. I import everything over from my camera to my MacBook and edit and splice the videos together. With rendering and uploading it takes about another hour. So like 2-2.5 hours total.
Another great video Anthony—thank you! Any more thoughts on the Snotgirl rumors you mentioned earlier??
No. Nothing yet. The rumor was it was overheard that an image stalwart was heard mentioning it. Stay tuned. We will cover it if/when it is announced.
Thank you kindly for the update!
No worries. It is that and the replica one I am waiting on with baited breath.
Yeah, I saw some questions on the Replica rumor. I haven’t followed that one, but I did notice that sets of Snotgirl were disappearing over the weekend.
Haha yes I pretty much bought every copy of replica I could get my hands on even paying for international postage as I’m UK based.
I bought a ton of the regulars and variants from Midtown and every copy I could get from my LCS. I am locked and loaded and waiting for the announcement. Already listed sets of 1 and the variant at $39.99 to be ready when/if it gets an announcement
Missed the Snotgirl news. Should I pull my listing of issues 1-3 down?
It hasn’t happened. Just a rumor at this point.
