Poyo’s Spec for July 28th, 2021

Welcome to this weeks spec. This is where we pick the winners each week we (or shall I say myself) think will be spec worthy, a great read or just cool looking art on the cover.



Marvel Picks

Amazing Fantasy #1 I hope is going to be Amazing. If the writing sucks, at least we’re getting some damn cool Kaare Andrews covers for this series.

Star Wars High Republic #7 is gonna be a must for Star Wars fans and those who like to speculate since it has some firsts in it. Already sold out at TFAW and Midtown still has them at 1 per.

If you’re not on our forums, we got long running topics that usually chat up all these Star Wars news and details way ahead of time.

Star Wars #15 (War of the Bounty Hunters) has just an option cover. It’s also WOBH so anything could happen within.

It’s probably not going to heat up but it’s still a cool 2nd print cover for X-Factor #10 (2nd Ptg Baldeon Variant Gala). As we all know Scarlet Witch won’t be dead for long.

DC Picks

Batman Secret Files Huntress #1 is on my list of books to check out. Love the cover.

Batman Secret Files Huntress #1 (Cover A - Irvin Rodriguez)

Icon & Rocket Season One #1 (of 6) has my interest as well. These one off stories seem to be more interesting coming out of DC than their main character titles for me.

Icon & Rocket Season One #1 (of 6) (Cover A - Taurin Clarke)

Legends of the Dark Knight #1 (2nd Ptg) is a pretty cool variant for the new Quiz character that made her way into this issue.

Legends of the Dark Knight #1 (2nd Ptg)

Batman Reptilian #2 (of 6). I’ve been digging these covers from Liam Sharp. I still haven’t read the first issue, it’s in the stack so I’m hoping it’s a good read as Ennis rarely disappoints.

Indie and Small Publisher Picks

Star Wars Adventures #7 has been on Pre-Order for what seems like forever. I think I pre-ordered this sucker back in January. It’s finally here and it apparently introduces the new character Crimson Corsair.

Usagi Yojimbo #20 (2nd Ptg) is already sold out at Midtown, still available at TFAW. For you first appearance chasers and completists, this is a must.

Runes #1 is a book I pointed out a few weeks back and in my Indie Spotlights. I love a good Viking story and this one might be good, I hope.

Runes #1

Swamp God #1 (of 6) is a Heavy Metal book I”m looking forward to. The Civil War junkie in me is hoping a great read.

Swamp God #1 (of 6)



One thought on “Poyo’s Spec for July 28th, 2021”

  1. ‘The App’ has a red: down arrow for Icon and Rocket #1.
    Most of the time, it feels like the content, on there is produced, solely, by one person.
    “Hey, I found this spec from two years, ago! Better load it on the ol’ App so I can be a social influencer! Look at those copies fly off of the interweb!”
    “Hey, a single slabbed copy of this book sold, last week, for this amount, so raw copies are red hot and selling for this amount!”
    A more accurate and responsible competitor, in the app market, would benefit everyone, imho.
