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.
Devil’s Reign Superior Four #2 Superlog variant is just pure awesomeness if you ask me.
Another bad ass cover is Amazing Spider-Man #89 by Gleason. Already sold out at most retailers I checked. Just a cool cover of the new Goblin Queen.
The love hate relationship with Cates continues in Hulk #4 for a lot of folks it seems. Can’t deny he brings buzz to whatever title he’s writing. I like this regular cover though. The Gist Variant is pretty cool if you can find or snag for cheap.
There’s a new Iron Fist in Iron Fist #1. Might be worthy of a pickup.
The other Cates title that has made a splash recently with buzz is Thor and Thor #22 continues the God of Hammers storyline.
Not a whole lot coming out of DC this week but I do like the ratio cover for Detective Comics #1053 by Fornes.
Indie & Small Publisher Picks
Canto III Lionhearted #6 1:10 ratio is just awesome. Love this art style. I bet a lot of shops didn’t qualify and if they did, they didn’t get too many of these as interests seems to wane towards the end of these types of mini-series.
Another pick for the cover art goes to Transformers #40 by Brokenshire.
Forsaken #1 (of 6) looks pretty awesome. I hoping for a good read but I’m really digging the cover art as well. Already sold out at Midtown.
Iron Head #1 looks like some bloody good fun reading. Sold out at Midtown and others, none listed on eBay from a quick search.
Garth Ennis is great at writing war related stories. So this one, Lion & Eagle #1 (Cover A – Bradstreet), is a must for me, despite not being a huge fan of the large format it’s going to be in.
Long ago I read Mother Russia, which was a 3 issue mini-series and it was fantastic. So now we get Mother Russia Winter Special (One-Shot) which I’m looking forward to.

I miss the Derek pick, where did it go? That always spawned good debate among friends lol
Drek pic, autocorrect….geez
It also caused some grief from some. They just couldn’t handle any type of light hearted criticism.
