Poyo’s Spec & Picks for June 1st, 2022

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.

Hang tight, it’s a bigger week for Marvel titles while everyone else seems to be limited..

Marvel Picks

Enter Vibranium Man in Avengers Forever #6. I just can’t shake the image of a condom commercial every time I read or hear Vibranium Man for some reason.

Avengers Forever #6 (Noto Skrull Variant)

Avengers Forever #6

I love this Ross regular cover for Black Panther #6.

Black Panther #6

Captain Marvel #38 is a title that’s had a few surprises along the way. Enter Binary as Captain Marvel is no more!

Captain Marvel #38 (Bazaldua Variant)

Captain Marvel #38

Carnage #3 (Barends Skrull Variant) gives us a pretty cool Barends variant.

Carnage #3 (Barends Skrull Variant)

Ghost Rider #3 seems like it’s had way too many delays. It’s about time it’s making its way to comic shelves.

Ghost Rider #3 (Mobili Spider-Man Variant) – Pretty kick ass variant.
Ghost Rider #3 (Momoko Variant) – Very slick looking Momoko variant. Already sold out at TFAW.
Ghost Rider #3 (Land 1:25 Variant) – Another cool ratio by Greg Land. Grab if you can find for cheap.

Ghost Rider #3

Miles Morales #38 is already selling out at some online retailers. The 1:50 is one to nab if you can find for cheap. At time of writing, TFAW only had the Miles Morales Spider-Man #38 (10 Copy Allen Design Variant) available.

Moon Knight #1 from 1980 gets the facsimile treatment. The original first print has skyrocketed in price from a few years back. If you didn’t nab an original copy then, this is the next best thing.

Strange #3 is another Barends cover that’s purely a winner based on the cover art despite something looking a little off on the left arm and hand..

Strange #3

Because anything is possible in Star Wars titles, we got two titles this week:

Star Wars Bounty Hunters #23
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #23 (Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th Variant)
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #23 (Miyazawa Japanese Creator Variant)

Star Wars Bounty Hunters #23

Star Wars Darth Vader #23
Star Wars Darth Vader #23 (Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th Variant)
Star Wars Darth Vader #23 (Okazaki Japanese Creator Variant)

Star Wars Darth Vader #23

DC Picks

Nothing stands out sadly! Just like FOC having nothing, not much coming out from DC this week.

Indie and Small Publisher Picks

Tynion fans will be seeking out Closet #1 (of 3) (Cover A – Fullerton).

Closet #1 (of 3) (Cover B – 25 Copy Oeming Variant)
Closet #1 (of 3) (Cover C – 50 Copy Shalvey Variant)
Closet #1 (Donovan TFAW Exclusive Variant)

Closet #1 (of 3) (Cover A - Fullerton)

Neverender #1 (Cover A – Kraft) is right up my alley. Dueling mixed in a sci fi setting. Ignore the cover art for the regular at TFAW, they’re being turds.. maybe the data entry intern was drinking too much coffee..

New Think #1 (of 5) (Cover A – Rahzzah) is another tech related title I’m looking forward to. Gotta love the Rahzzah regular for the first issue as well which I believe he’s doing the regular A covers for all the issues.

New Think #1 (of 5) (Cover B – Deodato Jr)

New Think #1 (of 5) (Cover A - Rahzzah)

Triskele #1 is a new Scout book that really isn’t anything groundbreaking with the plot but I’m digging the cover art and if the interior is top notch, I might be on board.
