Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – firstname.lastname@example.org
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 MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

With all the hype about Enormous the comic today I thought it would be good to post the first episode of the web series. Larry had linked through but here is episode 1 of Enormous Continue reading “Enormous Episode 1 Web Series”
The big hit of the week was Enormous, as we have already said, jumping up in price today.

Terry Hoknes, of www.hoknescomics.com sent a message over that three high profile comics all sold out immediately even with decent print runs. Continue reading “High profile sell outs this week.”
The hit, big winner of the week was Enormous, were you able to secure a copy? A lot of people have said they have not seen it in shops. The print run on this one will be minuscule (the opposite of enormous).

Article by comic book historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – email@example.com
This column is here to help promote every new comic book series debuting this week.
Pictured are the 3 new series that are selling out the fastest at Diamond !
This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.
This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!
So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.
Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled the week BEFORE release date! Continue reading “SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for July 2 2014”
Where the hell would be the fun of picking Figment #2, Deadpool vs X-Force #1, or the Image title du jour?
This week there are a TON of “Right under your nose picks”
Too boring. I’m Larry Doherty, a bold maverick. It’s my job to scour previews for stuff other retailers will miss; purchase accordingly. I look under every rock.
I’ll be more daring:
My speculator-y pick of the week:
ENORMOUS #1 215 INK
(W) Tim Daniel (A/CA) Mehdi Cheggour
In the midst of a planetary crisis for food and fuel, a vast ecological cataclysm has spawned “The Enormous,” massive beasts unlike anything ever encountered. Humanity struggles to stave off extinction. The original one-shot graphic novel returns in an ongoing series as the companion to the new live-action web series from Machinima!
Why? It HAS to have a microscopic print run. ( See how many shops have this on their shelves)
The artwork & production values are jaw dropping.
It’s the first NORMAL size appearance of the property. In 2013 Image released an oversized one shot. ( not a bad buy ) It’s my experience that collectors tend to shy away from odd size material.
This book WILL sellout at the distributor level.
This book will appeal to Giant Monster ( Godzilla fans)
Main reason for a spec play:
The book ties into a Web series that will surely bring some new faces to the direct market.
