    the extremely early foc makes me think print run might not be huge, due to people missing cut off. been on the fence about buying 10 of the #19. also here are the percentages to get covers in each bag.
    Color: 50% chance
    Color Virgin: 25% chance
    Black & White: 15% chance
    Black & White Virgin: 10% chance

      I hate the blind grab bag BS.. Image has been really bad about distributing these where people end up with too many duplicates, etc.

      So you all know, this is a future “Avoid”.. I’m not even bothering. I can barely sell the Walking Dead I have now. Remember, small print run or rare doesn’t always equal valuable, there has to be a demand for them. I’m sure the hype will drive some prices up for the remaining hardcore collectors but I’m not wasting a dime chasing these at a chance on a cover that’s a higher ratio to barely make up the costs I’ll likely spend getting.

      • Kevin verdine says:

        I hear you Poyo. I’m just waiting for the TV series to end then hopefully prices go up for a few weeks during final episodes so I can get rid of my TWD issues.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah I’m reading aricles now that claim they might just take the show an entirely new direction from comics since Rick will be gone and Carl played such a huge role in the Whisperers, etc. If they do that, all issues starting after the all out war will lose their appeal and potential spec value.

      • Uncle Willie says:

        It’s more likely the end of the show will cause immediate depression in prices on the books .. my advice is still to sell now ..

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah, I agree. When the show ends, thats when I think prices will start to plummet.

    Great, so long bodied zombies that look like Mary Jane…

  3. Alana says:

    Rip Ditko

  4. Uncle Willie says:

    IMO, there is no real spec value in any of these .. my Pull and Hold WD customers have dropped by 80% in the last year and a half and so far, no excitement on these ..

    I also don’t think a Show Re-Boot sans Rick is going to much, if anything, comic wise .. although the final episode with Rick is likely to be a show ratings booster ..

  5. A. King says:

    I’ll pass on these, I’ll probably be done with TDW after Bill S. is done with his covers. If anyone is interested the Nerdstore website has a sale going, it seems to be 50% off.

  6. agentpoyo says:

    60 total variants at $3.99 each comes to $240 and thats if your lucky enough to not get duplicates, which is highly unlikely. So yeah, no thanks. I’d rather spend $240+ on a whole lotta something else….

  7. Lonzilla says:

    I used to read the new issue of WD as soon as I left theLCS and got in my car, couldn’t wait! The new issue sat in my stack for 3 days before I picked it up. That Salt & Pepa reject Princess is the perfect character for this Godawful book lately. It just sucks so bad

    • agentpoyo says:

      Same here. It was the first book I’d read on Wednesdays. It was shortly before Andrea died I really started to not care so much and at times I’d even be okay in reading Anthony’s spoilers, not needing to read if I read the spoilers.

  8. Marvel Zombie says:

    I might get a few of these. One copy only, based on artist. So Campbell, Bartel and Craig.
    Would be for PC.
    These will be hot for a minute then forgotten. Like those anniversary issues last year.
