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.
It’s another big week.. particularly coming out of Marvel.
Ben Reilly Spider-Man #1 gives us a Skroce regular cover. This title might be good, I’m going into it with zero expectations but I’m likely to pick up a copy just because I like Skroce. The best cover variant is the Maleev Variant though.
Probably worth picking up at least one copy goes to Hulk #3.
Miles Morales Spider-Man #34 (Acuna Variant) is just pure awesomeness for a variant B cover.
Some honorable mentions but I’m not anticipating any heat from these, maybe good reads:
She-Hulk #1 – So many covers and variants.
Silk #1 – How many reboots are we going to get of this title? Geez…
Silver Surfer Rebirth #1 (of 5) but the Maleev Variant could be a nice flip if you can snag at a lower price.
Strange Academy #15 is already selling for $20 and up already. So it’s a definite grab if you plan to flip.
The Star Wars Books to pick up:
Star Wars High Republic #13
Star Wars High Republic #13 (Anindito Variant)
Star Wars Doctor Aphra #18
Star Wars Doctor Aphra #18 (Tarr Variant)
Star Wars Doctor Aphra #18 (Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th Variant)
Batman the Knight #1 (of 10) (Cover A – Carmine Di Giandomenico) is a must for me. I like Chip Z’s writing so this is likely gonna be for a great read.
Catwoman #39 Sozomaika if you can get for cheap is going to be a nice flip when looking at the current eBay prices.
Indie and Small Publisher Picks
Apache Delivery Service #1 gets a second printing.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ongoing #125 (Cover A – Sophie Campbell) is a must for any TMNT fan. Might be a good pick up if you don’t normally pick up TMNT for the long term potential.
Bolero #1 (of 5) (Cover A – Vecchio) is a new sci-fi title out from Image. I’ve been intending to review this but have yet to read it. Hoping for a good read at minimum.
The first issue did well on the secondary market but Animal Castle #2 (Cover A – Delep Silvio the Bull) is out this week. I don’t expect issue #2 to take off but if retailers didn’t order enough (like Nottingham), could see some love. Still available though at most retailers so I’m going to assume most weren’t caught off guard.
