Ghosted #1 sells out at distributor level and going to 2nd print

Another new sell out from Image and Skybound (Robert Kirkman’s imprint.) ‘Ghosted #1’ sold out through Diamond comics distributors. Selling out at the distributor level does not mean that you cannot but it in stores, it means that stores cannot order additional copies through Diamond. Skybound sellouts have included many issues of ‘The Walking Dead’ and early issues of ‘Thief of Thieves.’ Many of which have performed nicely on the secondary market.

Copies of Ghosted #1 cheap on Amazon get them while they last.

Comic book picks of the week for 7/17/13

This looks to be another good summer week with some good speculation books. Speaking of which, did you see the news on ‘Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth’ and ‘Clone.’?

So without further ado, this weeks comic book speculation picks:

Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth 2nd print print run

Ken Kristensen posted on a message board a few minutes ago the print run on the 2nd print number 1 is about 5,000 copies. This makes the 2nd print #1 the smallest printed book in the series and really worth picking up (see what Rachel Rising #1 3rd print did.)

Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth Print Run

Thanks to Mark for these. Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth sold out its first two issues early on. With news of the impending TV show, its not a bad idea to look at the print run numbers. The second issue of the series, which typically drops off in size, is the smallest of the run. With about 7800 first print copies this book could really shoot up if the TV show works out. I can account for at least 7800 people hoping it does.

We told you on the 13th that some serious rumblings have been going around, straight from the creative team, that Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth looked like it was going to be picked up as an animated tv series. Since the rumor got out Amazon sold out of the copies it had listed. And has since got new copies listed. All the cheap copies have disappeared off eBay. The copies of #1 that have bids on them are all in the $30 dollar range. With news hitting today of the tv series, looks like prices may be set to jump again. There are currently very few copies of the first print #1 on eBay.

The Art of Zenescope Limited Edition Hardcover flip

One thing that has been a constant for some comic collectors is hot chicks in small outfits on covers sell well. No company does this better than Zenescope. They put out titles that are wrapped in beautifully rendered scantily clad women and the fans buy the books quickly. The racier the cover the better they sell. When you add in the covers are often very limited, you have a great money making opportunity on the secondary market.
