Variants of the Week 12/18/2019

This weeks was a cover lover’s delight.  Heck even DC put on a strong showing.  There was three #1 issues that caught my eye.  5 indie titles.  Submissions by Inhyuk Lee; Artgerm; Clayton Crain, Jeff Lemire, Jenny Frison, and Catherine Nodet ensured that I’ll have to make hard decisions at the next trip to the LCS.  Oh and we are 4 issues into the Death Defying Devil, and still no answer on why he needs to have spikes so close to the crotch.

Variants of the Week 12/11/2019

Art Wise this was an amazing week that was a welcome sight after last week’s lackluster showing.  7 of these were released indies and 6 were done by what I consider modern masters.  It was difficult to determine opening interest due to organic low estimates.  I did see a lot of good readers out there, but nothing that necessarily driving sales as of yet.

There was a lot of books to read through and as always some of the Books were late. Nonetheless, even though I wasn’t too excited as far as long-term value on any of the books. There were some who depending on what you like will make for a good read, and some who’s opening High Opening interest are obviously a bit of stretch. Though I only have a few books listed here keep an eye on the indie books, I read a few that had a decent story and good interiors, but low opening interest so I didn’t list them here.

Variants of the Week: 11/13/2019

Whew! Some of these list are turning more into my own personal shopping list than anything else.   This was a so-so  week  and I see a lot titles being stretched with not a whole lot reasoning behind it , but regardless if you like to read, this was actually a pretty strong week from the big two. I took a look at 100 books, and 7 books had an impact on me:Despite my instincts one really showed high Open Interest, pre-sale.; 3 were #1’s; 3 of the covers were done by home run hitting artists,  and of course there is my normal, too entertaining to pass up.
