Welcome to this weeks spec and drek. It’s a super small week. No DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and only a few select others.
First things first. I listed a bunch of Hip Hop Variants that are all charity auctions on eBay. So yeah, if you missed out on the Hip Hop variants that Marvel was pumping out a few years back and or want to bid to donate to what I think is a a good cause, then check them out. You can see my forum post I made in the new For Sale and Trading category by clicking here.
So I only have two picks this week and there’s no point in even breaking them down by publisher.
Devils Highway #1 from AWA.
Shadow Children #1 from Red Giant. For you Stranger Things fans, sounds like it’s right up that alley. None on eBay at time of writing, sold out at most online retailers. Might be hard to find.
Now on with the dreaded “drek” pick, every writer and artists worst nightmare when it comes to selling their hard work. The book to avoid or not fall victim to in buying at ratio inflated prices.
Do not spend your hard earned cash on the Silver or Gold Negan Lives variants. Talk about a ripoff! Whoever bought the Gold Variant off Midtown for $440.00 and or the Silver Variant for $176.00 is a bonehead with too much money. Sorry, I hate to call people names but seriously… I know of better things to buy than a variant that will be half the value in just a few days or weeks time. Bravo to you eBay sellers who listed these as “Ultra Rare”.. there’s nothing rare about a 1 per store variant. There will be thousands of these out there. That’s not rare in the least.
1 per store variants are horrible spec unless there’s a first appearance involved and in this particular case, the Walking Dead magically becomes the most popular television show in cable once again. Expect these to be dead on arrival… err, shortly after.
Unless you buy the Silver or Gold copies from your local shop to support them, avoid this like a person who has COVID..
