Greetings to my Comics Heating Up and Awesomesauce families. Thank you everyone for reading this each and every week. Lets all hope we have sceen the last of the winter snow for this year. I will be opening a comic book & cosplay show room in New York City, more details to come in the near future . We will be doing that cosplayer pizza party soon enough. It will be amazing and sexy.  Superman #42, Deathstroke #28#29 (available on eBay) , Batman White Knight #6,Batman #42 (available on eBay) were my reads of the week. Lucifer & Jessica Jones are my television shows to watch. (Damn you Netflix as that Patsy Walker song is stuck in my head.)

    I noticed also that the Rick and Morty #35 Sketch Variant also has Pickle Rick on the cover.

  2. Alana says:

    That Rick and Morty cover hasn’t even sold out yet how is it going for $75 + if I can still buy it at the original $50 price from the retailers.

    • Anthony says:

      Because people don’t know to order from the source when they can buy from eBay. Gotta remember the average person is not following like we do.

    • A. King says:

      Nerdstore or Brain Trust or whatever they are called are way over priced. If it wasn’t so expensive it would have sold out within a day or two, look at how quickly the last Frankie’s variant sold out.

  3. JayClue says:

    Buy two and flip one. This will help you offset the cost if you want to keep one for your PC.

    • Jeff says:

      Exactly. This cover has a lot of things going for it or else I would of skipped on it.

      • JayClue says:

        I collect ASM 300 Homage covers, so this is a must have for my PC for that reason. I just picked up 2. I always stay away from CX garbage exclusives and any of the online shops associated with those goofs, but i couldnt resist this Braintrust variant. I do not think Braintrust has any association with CX, I hope they dont.

      • JayClue says:

        That is great news. Thanks , Anthony.

  4. Jeff says:

    What’s CD? Comicxposure?

  5. Darrell Norris says:

    We are binge watching the excellent Jessica Jones in our house. This is a video of her that my daughter (15) made for my birthday…https://youtu.be/JNQMzjFfiQA

    • JayClue says:

      Thats very cool, Darrell. Very sweet of your daughter to think of that for you, and she seems quite talented.

      • Darrell Norris says:

        Thanks pal really appreciated. A long way to go, but she would love a career in the business…

  6. OC_GUY says:

    That Rick and Morty cover is very tempting, but like a lot of others I have to agree…$50 right off the bat for a book with a 2K print run is way steep.
