Each week, hundreds of new comic hit the stands, each with potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our picks of the week for delivery August 1, 2018:
Kind of a small spec week this week. Still some books that could be long term growth kinds of books. Here is what we have on tap.
Deathstroke #34 Francesco Mattina Cover – These are nice personal collection covers. They haven’t been heating up much as shops are ordering in quantity, but still making a nice set.
Harley Quinn #47 Frank Cho Cover – Frank’s black and white covers are stunning. Again, not heating up but great personal collection covers.
The Potential Money Maker
Venom #3 SDCC cover – These will be released to stores this week. Will be worth the grab if you can get them on the cheap. They are selling in the $30-35 range
The One That Had Potential
Infinity Wars #1 -This started out strong with the beheading in the prelude. However, the reveal of Requiem kind of took the wind out of the sails. Still, a potential death, see the spoilers we posted, and f it has lasting effect, it could be interesting.
One to Watch
Death of the Inhumans #2 – continues the saga that includes the new character Vox. Curious to see how this turns out. I am hearing a death. We will have spoilers tonight.
Small Press Pick of the Week
Teether #2 – A new issue finally comes out. This is a fantastic small press horror book that was a big hit when it first came out. Second issues tend to drop off in orders so this will be harder to get.
Small Press Variant Pick of the Week
Mall #1 Cover B – The Mall #1 cover A came out a few weeks ago and Diamond shorted stores on the variant. This one was about a 1:10 ratio variant . Might be worth the grab. Stores may not know what they have.
Pick of the Week
Cosmic Ghost Rider #2 – Fun first appearance. Apparently Donny Cates was dared to combine Howard the Duck and make him powerful. Continues the epic Donny Cates run that started in Thanos. Cates is an amazing writer and I cannot wait to see what is to come. And… cosmic Sharks.
That is it for this week, let us know what you are spec-ing on. And in case you missed it, here is this week’s New Comic Spec Review Video
