Poyo’s Spec and Drek for November 20th, 2019

Welcome once again to my spec and my drek. I pick what I think will be winners, not only if you make money by flipping but winners as in either a great read or just awesome art.

Then there’s the pesky drek, the comic you should avoid altogether or not fall into the buying every variant trap.

DC Picks

If you’re a He-Man fan, this one I’m sure is already on your list of pick ups.


He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse #1 (of 6)

The scourge of Anti-Eternia is unleashed on the Multiverse!

He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse #1 (of 6) (Fraga Variant)Blazing a trail across the dimensions, he’s devastating each version of Eternia and stealing its power. Now it’s up to a ragtag team of surviving He-Men to recruit the one man in existence who might save them: Prince Keldor, the man who would be Skeletor!

This all-new miniseries features the most iconic eras and beloved takes on the Masters of the Universe!

I like a good InHyuk Lee cover but I’m really digging the variant cover by Fraga for this one as well.

Awesome writer, awesome cover artist.. sign me up, this is the other pick of the week.


The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage #1 (of 4)

For years, Vic Sage has worn the faceless mask of the Question to clean up the streets of Hub City by sheer force of will. He knows right from wrong. He knows black from white.

But what happens when he is drawn into a conspiracy that reaches from the heights of Hub City power to the depths of its underground tunnels? What happens when things stop being black-and-white and start getting a little gray? And what happens when, in a secret chamber deep beneath the city, Vic Sage meets his own end…and his new beginning?

Eisner-winning writer Jeff Lemire joins forces with the legendary art team of Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz to resurrect Vic Sage, only to destroy him all over again…and again…

Marvel Picks

Absolute Carnage #5 concludes and do we learn more about Dylan and his ties? It’s Venom vs Carnage, anything could happen. The solicitations claim “To The Death” but we’ll see..

You all have seen the spoilers and know the first Avenger to die by Carol’s hands right? And the character behind Carol going dark targeting Avengers we first saw in the Inhumans, is it the same character or a different supreme version?


Captain Marvel #12

CAPTAIN MARVEL VERSUS THE AVENGERS! THE LAST AVENGER! Captain Marvel has fought off alien hordes. Rescued X-Men. Punched Thanos in the face. Literally saved the world.

She now faces her greatest challenge: kill the Avengers. Has one of the world’s most powerful heroes gone dark? But why? And what does this mean for Carol…for the world?

Life on earth will never be the same. Kelly Thompson teams up with Eisner-nominated artist Lee Garbett for a brand-new arc – and a bold new direction! Rated T+

Indie and Small Publisher Picks

The conclusion to the awesome new series Canto is here (which saw some love on the secondary market with it’s early issues). Great series, hope to see more adventures for this character.


Canto #6 (of 6) (Cover A – Zucker)

The blockbuster finale to Canto’s first epic quest is here and… there’s no place like home!

Atop the Emerald Tower, Canto faces the Shrouded Man to demand his beloved’s heart. Having finally made it to the end of his journey, will Canto learn the truth behind his people’s captivity?

Can he battle the Shrouded Man… and survive to return home to tell the tale?


Another BOOM! book that might be a great read and I could see this one attracting a certain crowd that are into the dark and disturbing type of stories.


Heartbeat #1 (of 5)

Eva, a high school outcast, finds herself witness to a horrible secret: the most popular boy in school enjoys the taste of blood and will kill to get his hands on it.

Horrified and intrigued, Eva lets herself be pulled into Donatien’s macabre world. He offers the escape she has been looking for but how much is Eva willing to betray her moral code in order to find something that gives her life meaning? And will she.or Donatien.ever find redemption?

Maria Llovet ( Faithless) presents a dark, violent, decadent, disturbing story, in which life and death, blood, and love are inextricably intertwined.

Rai could be such a cool character. Hopefully Valiant brings out their best in the new reboot.


Rai #1

Welcome to the 41st century: New worlds, new characters, new adventures.

Valiant’s critically celebrated cyborg ronin named Rai embarks on a thrilling quest to save the future.

Multiple New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) joins forces with breathtaking artist Juan José Ryp (X-O MANOWAR) to begin the essential sci-fi series of the next two thousand years!


Now on with the dreaded “avoid” pick, every writer and artist worst nightmare when it comes to selling their hard work.
