Poyo’s Picks for April 26th, 2017

It’s the time again, where we run off to the local comic shops to give them all our hard earned cash in hopes of picking up some more preciousness’s. Yes, that’s a word, I think. They used it in LOTR so I’m gonna say it’s an actual word because that’s what our comics are, precious.

So what’s in store for us this week? We got some better DC books hitting the shelves, a new Batman Shadow series. The Button storyline continues in Flash. Another Fabian Rangel book hits shelves, something I spec’d on a long time ago in my Indie Spotlight.. which I need to set aside some time in doing, I promised these more often and I’ve been slacking. I’m sorry.. (not really, but that’s okay, I really don’t.. ).

I’m gonna start the picks now, if that’s okay with you all? Continue reading

Alana’s Weekend Specs: Bronze Beauties

Hey fellow CHU’ers, Welcome back to Weekend Specs!! This week I want to go over a couple of Big Bang for your Buck Bronze Beauties that are nothing new to the spec world but may be your last chance to get in on a good deal. Through my time collecting comics, and  I fondly remember when I first started going to the comic store in the 80’s, and collecting Golden age was all the rage for comic book spec’s, only to see the Silver age emerge and take over in the 90’s. Now in 2017, and  I know you have all heard it before, Bronze is the new Silver age. Some Bronze keys have already started hitting their stride in the last 7 years Hulk #181, Werewolf by Night #32, Amazing Spider-Man #129, House of Secrets #92, Batman #232, Iron Man #55, etc. I could go on and on. But surprisingly a couple uber important Bronze Age keys are still cheap and affordable but this window is about to close. Your time to target them is now if you don’t already own them. Also a couple of other tv news and dollar bin specs to go with the already heard of Bronze Age books I’m going to gush about below. Let’s jump in!!!! Continue reading
