    I think Sink is the Wednesday winner, but those Realm are pretty… so many solid selections this week

    While I did read Realm #1 – I thought the 1st issue was short. I did enjoy the artwork tho. Nothing compared to Opena’s artwork in S2E though. I may buy issue 2, but jeez there are so many other comics with great story and artwork which I would rather spend my hard earned cash on.

    Midtown has more Cover A’s up at less than cover

    That $120 variant looks like it was purposely bid that high. You can pick up the store exclusive for $10-$20 elsewhere eBay included. There’s a ton of copies of the A and B up for sale will get back down to cover or a couple dollars over cover I would think.

    Flipped 2 A&B sets for $20 each, one on the bay, one to a friend. Slabbing a copy of Cover B for a quick flip and ain’t looking back
    My Wednesday Winner is Sink #1. Lucked out at one shot and found a few sets of A&B.
    Sick book!

  6. NotJon says:

    Yeah, that’s just a store exclusive done by a shop called Elite Comics, not Comic Elite, it’s in a suburb of Kansas City called Overland Park. If anyone really wants a copy, that’s my local shop, and I can see if there are still any available.

  7. Victor says:

    Great book, one of the best image offerings to come out in a while. I was aware of it but stores didn’t seem to order much, disappeared from my LCBS’s.

  8. Alana says:

    I think teen Titans #12 will be the winner one year from today.

  9. Alan says:

    If cosplay is an indicator of a character’s popularity, then I can see how evil Batman from Teen Titans #12 might be a cool costume!

  10. agentpoyo says:

    Realm can be a winner long term if a) it truly is ongoing, b) it doesn’t vanish after 8-10 issues, c) doesn’t have huge gaps in the story or releases and d) retain readers and pick up new readers along the way.

    Sink was a great quick flip for those that could list early but the publisher listing them at cover from their site (which I still think they’re available as I just checked) killed the spec on these. It’s a horror comic, which has their fans but it’s still directed towards a limited audience I think.

    Teen Titans has a chance at long term as well if the Evil Batman character becomes popular but it’s still all a “What If” at this point in time..

    I have got one of these in my pullbox, I grabbed one on Wednesday, and I think I pre-ordered two copies of each cover. I need to sit down and read it to see how it is, I just flipped through it real quick at the shop.
