New #1’s
Arcade Kings #1 -Image- Pricey new Image book. Joe, a mysterious new face in Infinity City, has suddenly become the hottest new player at the Round House Arcade. Anyone can challenge him, but no one can win.

Avengers #1 -Marvel- 8th series for Avengers kicks off.

Batman The Brave And The Bold #1 -DC- Being called the most frightening Joker story in a generation

Blood Love Ghost And A Deadly Spell #1 -FairSquare Comics- 64 page volume filled with horrific tales from the inimitable mind of Damian Connelly

Cyborg #1 -DC- Dawn of the DC tie in

Danny Ketch Ghost Rider #1 -Marvel- Flashback to a time when innocent blood was spilled, a Spirit of Vengenace was born, and Danny Ketch found himself transformed into the GHOST RIDER!

Dark Spaces Good Deeds #1 – Dark Horse – Scott Snyder’s anthology returns with a new creative team. When the quaint community’s festivities give way to bloodshed and Cheyenne is the sole witness, Jean begins an investigation and the women find themselves at the heart of a supernatural conspiracy linked to St. Augustine’s colonial past.

Disney Villains Maleficent #1 -Dynamite- Solo series featuring the Disney villain.

Titans #1 -DC- Dawn of the DC tie in. A few ratios on this one including a 1:25, 1:50, and a 1:100.

Vigil #1 -DC- New DC team.

Violet Descends #1 -Blood Moon- Seven archangels guide the fate of humanity: the angels of life, death, miracles, nature, technology, freedom, and emotions. When the angel Violet abandons her sacred duties as shepherd of humanity’s emotions, the world is suddenly thrown into a hellish apocalypse event.

One and Done
Chilling Adventures Presents Jinx A Cursed Life #1 – I am just a fan of the Archie Horror one shots.

Man Goat And The Bunnyman 2023 Special – Is the content any good? Eh. But what I can tell you is I do well selling the racier Zenescope covers. The 1:10 covers usually sell really well.

Ones to Watch
Superman #4 – Introduces the Krytonite Klaw, which seems to be a Kryptonite gauntlet used by other super villains.

Hulk Annual #1 – Previews the new, more horror focused, direction of the next series.

Venom #19 – Eddie Brock achieves his most powerful form yet. Plus the return of a very obscure character fro the very early days of Marvel comics.

Miles Morales Spider-Man #6 – Spoilers later.

Notable Reprints
Avengers #1 Cover E Facsimile Edition – Classic first issue of the Avengers gets the facsimile treatment.

Spider-Man #7 2nd Ptg – People are going nuts over Spider-Boy, so worth grabbing a 2nd print, even though the print run will be massive.

Pick of the Week
Batman Superman Worlds Finest #15 – Slow news week so far, that makes this first appearance and first cover appearance of Ultra-Morpho worth looking at.

  1. What’s up with Jabba’s palace 2nd print 1:25? Never went up anywhere for sale and it’s over $200 on EBay. TFAW had the 1st print 1:25s on there for days and nobody wanted them. I tried to even preorder a copy of the 2nd print and people wanted over 4 times ratio on that. Wtf is going on with this besides “being under-ordered”?

    1. Fomo.

      6 months it’ll be back to ratio or below. Just wait it out if you really want it. Nothing special.
