One Year Later: Spec Review for 10/18/17

What up CHUllectors!?! Shawn B. the One Year Later Investigator, back with another One Year Later round up, where we take a look at some of the comics that Anthony, Mel, and Poyo specced on one year ago. Their specs turn out to be quick flips, slow burns, straight up misses, straight up winners and on and on. Sometimes they spec with their hearts out of their passion for comics. Sometimes they spec based on data. And sometimes they spec based off the word on the street. Either way, all their specs appeal to a few or many collectors whether it is due to them having similar taste in writing or art, or just an opportunity for a collector to flip a book and make money to “support their habit”. So, this is our weekly chance to look back at how some of our buys from a year ago are doing today.
Very light week a year ago for the speccing crew. Mostly recommendations on good reads or good art so I pulled out what I could.
Poyo’s Drek (Trust the chicken!) – Let’s see what the agent told us to stay away from last year.
Marvel’s Lenticular Covers – Correct again. All are still available for cheap.
Winners

Harley Quinn #30 Variant Frank Cho Cover – Anthony & Mel Pick

One of the more sought after Harley variants by Cho and for obvious reasons.
