Each week, hundreds of new comics hit the shelves, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our picks of the week for delivery 9/6/17″
Predator Hunters #5 – Not usually one for movie tie ins. But, this book has been an awesome read.
Harley Quinn #27 Frank Cho Cover – I do not read the book, I buy these covers. This awesome Cho cover has Harley doing yoga. Gorgeous.
Outcast By Kirkman & Azaceta #30 – All spec is pretty dead on this book, however, it has been a good read and has been picking up.
Seven To Eternity #9 – Still a fantastic read. Just waiting for the option at this point.
Marvel Gimmick Cover to Have
Astonishing X-Men #3 (Marvel) Magneto Venomized Variant – One of three Mattina covers on the list this week, one of four covers out. Just an awesome image. Sold out at some online shops and selling for slightly above cover price.
Second Print Variant to Have
Generations Phoenix & Jean Grey #1 2nd Ptg Mattina Variant
The One With the Walking and the Dead
The Walking Dead #171 – Still a great pickup each month. Sold out at some online retailers sites. Three covers this week (yes, three, more to come.)
New Image #1
Scales & Scoundrels #1 – New fantasy series from Image. Worth a look.
Hey, It’s a Star Wars #1
Star Wars Adventures #1 – Yes, Phasma is out this week. However, this IDW Star Wars book is worth the look.
Small Press Gem
Lazarretto #1 – A Lord of Flies / Battle Royale type story. Looking forward to this. I do enjoy Clay Chapman’s writing as well, so this is a no brainer read.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Trump’s Titans #1 – President Trump has been a topic of controversy. Here is a potential for a quick flip. Trump leading a group of political commandoes. Sold out at some online retailers. Being listed for more than cover, with recorded sales above cover price as well.
Pick of the Week
Walking Dead #171 Cover B Pink Signature – Wait, What? This appears twice on the list. Yup. Here is the deal. There seems to be a secret B variant where the artist signature is in Pink…. Seems to be about 1 for every 10 regular blue signatures. Worth the pick up and could be the quick flip of the week.
And in case you missed it. Here is this week’s New Comic Spec Review Video.
