Eight Billion Genies #1 (of 8) (3rd Ptg)

Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover A – Strahm) is at the end of it’s mini-series with it’s finale. I’m sure this won’t be the last we see of Twig though. It’s got that Canto type of vibe and feel to the character. So expect more Twig, that’s my prediction.

Lots of variant covers for this one:
Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover B – Young)
Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover C – Momoko)
Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover E – 25 Copy Momoko Virgin Variant)
Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover F – 50 Copy Young Virgin Variant)
Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover G – 100 Copy Young B&W Variant)

Twig #5 (of 5) (Cover A - Strahm)

What I think is the best Image title currently though is That Texas Blood which continues with That Texas Blood #17 (Cover A – Phillips). Great series everyone should be reading.

Grim #2 (3rd Ptg Flaviano) gets another printing.

Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover A – Francavilla) is a new R.L. Stine that I’m looking forward to. Love this Francavilla regular cover as well. The other variants are pretty awesome as well. Might be one of the few times I pick up multiple copies instead of picking the favorite.

Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover B – Jacobus)
Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover C – Glow Variant) Francavilla
Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover D – Glow Variant) Jacobus
Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover E – Blank Sketch Variant)
Stuff of Nightmares #1 (of 4) (Cover L – Bg Variant) Hotz

There’s also some ratio variants already being listed on eBay which includes 1:50 Frison, 1:100 Barends and 1:150 Signed by R.L. Stine among some others.

Shock Shop #1 is a new Bunn title out from Dark Horse. Love this regular cover.

Survival Street #2 continues. I’m really liking the variant B cover.. only in America!

Survival Street #2 (Malachi Ward Variant Cover)

Vineyard #2 continues and is a new title I’m hoping is at minimum a good read as I’m really digging the cover art for these.

If you order the New Stars Wars Insider magazine, I think this winner this round goes to Star Wars Insider #213 (FOC Cad Bane).

His appearance in Boba Fett was brief. He’s likely not dead and we’ll be seeing more of this fan favorite. It’s likely this character will take the same route as our beloved Boba Fett took, gains a fan base over time and then becomes mainstream with his mugshot on more and more magazine and covers, maybe even one day getting his own Disney+ series.

Star Wars Insider #213 (FOC Cad Bane)

Amazing Spider-Man #9 (Romero Variant) is a pretty cool variant I think. Sure beats the snot out of that regular JR cover. Geez, Wolverine looks like he’s taking a shit in his pants! And that new Spider-Man suit.. who thought that was a good idea? Let’s give ‘ol Spider-Man some shoulder pads..

Edge of Spider-Verse #1 (of 5) (2nd Ptg Lubera Variant) gets the second print treatment. We all knew this would happen. Likely a 3rd print will come as well.

Edge of Spider-Verse #1 (of 5) (2nd Ptg Lubera Variant)

The latest Predator movie Prey has got me all in love with Predator again. So Predator #2 continues and I like the twist in story this new title has taken.

Predator #2 (Bustos Variant)

The Sprouse Variants on FOC for you completists out there collecting them all:
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #27 (Sprouse Choose Your Destiny Variant)
Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi #5 (of 5) Sprouse Choose Destiny Va

Hey look, it’s the first cover or comic appearance of 4 bit Spider-Man on X-Men Red #6 (Nakayama Beyond Amazing Spider-Man Variant).

Buy them all, buy as many as you can. I’m sure this is the one that will make you Elon Musk type of wealth! Haha!

X-Men Red #6 (Nakayama Beyond Amazing Spider-Man Variant)

Batman #127 (Cover B – Gabriele Dell Otto Wraparound Card Stock Variant) is a pretty slick cover from Dell Otto.

I’m also liking the regular cover: Batman #127 (Cover A – Jorge Jimenez).

For those that missed out on the regular issues, DC Horror Presents Soul Plumber HC is on FOC for the collected hardcover edition. Great read I thought.
