Most big sales from online retailers are usually a bunch of books nobody wants or already blew their money at retail cover prices. Every few months though Midtown will have a 75% off sale, likely to dump off inventory of recent and older back issues that is worthy in checking out for bargains.
It’s another great week of comics. Not sure about you all but I think there might be some winners this week.
Isn’t life grand? We have the luxury to worry about comic books, movies and other nonsense in the world that doesn’t directly impact our lives.
So here I am again, here to tell you what’s really grinding my gears this week, because you know, 1st world problems suck. But I try to tell you all the things I also like as well.
Remember Once Our Land, which was an original Kickstarter graphic novel turned Scout Comics two issue comic book? Well, for fans of Once Our Land, the creator Peter Ricq is bringing back this popular series with Once Our Land 2.
It’s that time again to spec and drek. We try to pick winners based on spec value potential, books to just read or simply books to tuck away in the personal collection.
I survived the road to Hana (yes, it’s apparently a thing) and didn’t get eaten by any sharks (but I did see lots of turtles on my snorkeling adventure). So there’s that in something to like this week. It was hard to leave but all good things must come to an end.
As you all know, AgentPoyo is the alter ego of Anthony. That’s probably why you all like me more right? I kid, I kid. You can ask Mel or Blind Adam that I’m real cause they’ve met me if any of you had any doubts.
This has been a fabulous week so far. Not only am I writing this on vacation (Anthony told me I had to or he was going to slash my salary in half. What’s half of zero?) but all the news out from SDCC has been great news for the comic book industry.
Welcome once again to this weeks picks and the dreaded avoid pick. Each Wednesday it’s Christmas for us comic book readers, flippers and collectors.
It’s that time again where I tell everyone who actually reads this on what is really grinding my gears this week, usually from the week prior as well. Anything and everything around the current week, I usually have something to grumble about or praise. I really do try to stay positive in my posts but that’s near impossible since we humans love dreading on the negative drama in life.
Not a big spec week for me but there certainly could be a few surprises. A lot of indie books hit stands this week but for my pick I went with a book that saw some heat on it’s first issue.
Coming soon from the creator of Extremity comes Murder Falcon. This looks like it might be fun. Read more of the official press release by clicking continue reading..
This actually looks interesting. I really am digging the cover artwork and style of this new book coming out from Image this November. Read more for the full Image Press Release.
The Jenkins Family farm isn’t your typical farm. Yes, they grow plug and play human organs. Need an ear, they can grow that. Need a liver, they can grow that too. Jed Jenkins has mastered what is likely stem-cell research into a bio-engineering empire for human kind.
Welcome once again to the weekly ramblings. I try to focus on the news and events around the current week.
