    Omar Francia’s interior art for Volition is incredible!

  2. Philippe Brault says:

    A book that noone seems to like except me is Tony Stark Iron Man 3 Adam Hughes variant. I love the cover and have a feeling it might be going under the radar and might not have been ordered heavily.

    • agentpoyo says:

      My only issue with these types of covers is they haven’t done so well in the past, since they consist of art that have nothing to do with the actual title they’re on.

      It might not of been ordered heavily but I’m not counting on it being a big spec play either. Hughes has his fans but lately I’ve had a hard time unloading his work.

      • Philippe Brault says:

        I agree on it not having anything to do with the actual title. Though a good Hughes cover when it’s a hit will sell on its own. I’m a big fan of Hughes so it’s goin in the PC, especially after a few of his latest work have been lackluster I hope this is a return to form.

  3. Matt C says:

    Crowded #1 optioned could be a good future spec depending what happens with it.

    • agentpoyo says:

      I’d say tread lightly. The problem with this being optioned was is that they announced it prior to the final cutoff order, which gave shops and people with Diamond accounts to order more copies.

  4. Brennan says:

    Is pearl going to take place in the DC universe or is it going to be separate? Does anyone know?

    • Salty says:

      I feel like it would be a waste of time if it isnt.

      • Brennan says:

        That’s kind of what I was thinking. If it’s in universe, it’s kind of like dc’s own Jessica Jones, if not it’s basically an image title.

    • Salty says:

      I’ve looked into it a little and read that its creator owned so I wouldn’t expect appearances by mainstream DC characters. It looks like jinxworld is going to be similar to image. Maybe in the future If enough fans demand it the characters will cross into the DC verse like the ones from Americas best comics did recently.

    • Anthony says:

      It’s part of Jinxworld so I think it is creator owned.

  5. A. King says:

    I think I pre-ordered Rejected, need to check and make sure.
