    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?

    • Anthony says:

      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.

  3. Keld Soerensen says:

    Hi Anthony – in average how long time does it take you guys to produce the weekly video.

    • Anthony says:

      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.

  4. Vann says:

    Another great video Anthony—thank you! Any more thoughts on the Snotgirl rumors you mentioned earlier??

    • Anthony says:

      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.

      • Vann says:

        Thank you kindly for the update!

      • Anthony says:

        No worries. It is that and the replica one I am waiting on with baited breath.

      • Vann says:

        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.

      • Karl says:

        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.

        Fingers crossed….

      • Anthony says:

        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

    • JayClue says:

      Missed the Snotgirl news. Should I pull my listing of issues 1-3 down?
