Comic Picks of the week for Wednesday Sept. 11th 2013

Hey everyone, trying to get back on my regular schedule. Baltimore comic con really took its toll on me and my wallet, as did the 13 3d covers from last week. So I am looking for more flips. Here are this weeks books of the week based on what I, and others, think are going to be hot.

A look ahead to this Wednesday

I usually give my picks of the week late Tuesday or at the latest early Wednesday. I also like to give a heads up on what else is coming out during the week that may be worth a pick up. Because of being at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend, I am a day behind. So here is a look ahead at what is being released this week.

1. Walking Dead #114 As the book continues to grow and so does the show, more people keep grabbing up issues. Always a good bet.

2. Rachel Rising #19 Still a great book with fantastic story and art by Terry Moore. It was optioned and since they all have a low print run could still be worth the pick up (one of my monthly titles.)

3. The Other Dead #1 The comic has three covers, a regular, a subscription, and an Obama Variant which has already been bringing notice to the series. . This has caused heat just due to the cover image. The story is about zombie animals. May have been delayed a week, but don’t sleep on this one.

4. Ghosted #3 I seriously think this will get made into a movie. It has Kirkman’s star power behind it as it comes out from Skyward.

5. Collider, I mean, Federal Bureau of Physics #3 is still one of Vertigo’s best reads.

6. Brain Boy #1 Dark Horse continues to expand it’s heroes line with this remake of a classic Golden Age character.

7. Eternal Warrior #1 I was never a fan of the original Valiant stuff, but the new launches have been fantastic. This one looks cool from the preview I read.

Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list 9/6/13

The Diamond Comics advanced reorder list used to be speculation gold. You could see what was gaining interest and causing retailers to scramble to get copies before final order cut off. You would see which books would be selling out early. Now, and for the past 5 weeks, it has been about Dc Villains month. The reorders on this week’s list are no surprise as retailers scrambled to get the standard cover of each book as their 3-d books had been allocated.

There are a couple of gems worth looking out for on here though:

1. Batman The Dark Knight #23.4 Joker’s Daughter Standard cover
2. Justice League #23.4 Secret Society Standard cover
3. Batman #23.4 Bane Standard cover
4. Justice League of America #7.4 Black Adam Standard cover
5. Batman Superman #3.1 Doomsday Standard cover
6. Green lantern #23.2 Sinestro Standard cover
7. Batman and Robin #23.4 Killer Croc Standard cover
8. Detective Comics #23.4 Man Bat standard cover
9. Aquaman #23.2 Ocean Master Standard cover
10. Wonder Woman #23.2 First Born Standard cover
11. Action Comics #23.4 Metallo Standard cover
12. Superman #23.4 Parasite Standard cover

13. DC New 52 Villians Omnibus HC– Covers all 52 of the oneshots in a hard bound format…..
14. Walking Dead #115 Midnight Release variant– Image is following Marvel and releasing a special ‘Party Variant’ for shops that open at Midnight so customers can get their Walking Dead fix early. Also, 15 connecting covers coming out that week.
15. Saga #13 2nd print- #13 was the return of the series, orders were low and sold out quickly. Now regular readers who missed out on first prints will have to settle for seconds. (that is why I am an every Wednesday guy) 1st prints still available.
16. Batman Superman #2 2nd print First Print stil available.
17. Avengers #20- Infinity tie in
18. Wolverine and X-Men #36
19. Sex Criminal #1 – New Image number 1 book with an interesting twist
20. Saga #14– See above for Saga #13. Retailers do not want to make the same mistake twice in not ordering enough copies
21. Avengers Assemble #19
22. Batman #24– DC’s flag ship continues after villains month. This is a $6.99 book which could break some shopper’s banks. No appearances by Joker’s helper monkey.
23. Infinity Heist #1– Infinity Tie In
24. Nova #8– Infinity Tie In
25. Punisher Trial of Punisher #1– Two issue mini series.

Larry from Larry’s comics reacts to Villains month day two.

I tend to agree with Larry of Larry’s comics on a lot of things. I had posted earlier in the week that I felt let down by the Villains month books. Especially the 3d Joker. Sure the cover rocked but the story was about Joker getting a helper monkey…..

Anyway see Larry’s reaction after the bump and discuss. Readers with a sensitivity towards language should avoid. Continue reading “Larry from Larry’s comics reacts to Villains month day two.”

Top 100 Hottest Comics and Recent Back issues during late August 2013

This list is updated every 2 weeks.  This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market.   I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month.     This list focuses on all regular edition covers.  (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs).   If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know.  Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold releases of the last few years online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price.  However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales.  Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

CGC-ing ‘The Outliers’ #1? Here is what you should know

Thank you to Matthew Swanson for the info.

I received an email this morning in reference to a request sent to CGC about grading ‘The Outliers #1’. There are two issues with the book that have to be accounted for. The first is, many of the books shipped from the publisher had a sticker over the bar code. this was done as some of the bar code printed had the black run together, which made them unreadable by a bar code scanner. The second issue is the dust cover the book was wrapped in. Here is the response from CGC.

DC 3-d covers, which ones were you able to get

Just a quick question to you all, which covers did you get in the 3-d variant? Please respond in the comment section. Spoke to some retailers who said they didn’t bother putting them out, just were selling them on ebay. Spoke to others who were charging a premium. What were your experiences at your local store today? I hit Third Eye Comics in Annapolis Maryland today and they had a ton of each cover. Around noon today they still had all the covers in stock, limit one per customer, at cover price.
