Wow, imagine Lone Wolf and Cub meets John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing.’ I just read the teaser, which will be only up for one week and it looks fantastic. I love Justin Jordan’s ‘Luther Strode’ and have read his other books, but this new horror series looks fantastic. The promo was available at NYCC and only 250 copies were available. No copies appeared on eBay and a search on Google turned up nothing. This could be one of those books that heats up and everyone is looking for.
Another Wednesday, another week of shelves filled with comic goodness and speculation gold. Here are our picks of the week for 10/23/13 in no particular order.

Wednesdays are always so full of promise. Each Wednesday is like Christmas morning, full of promise and anticipation. This Wednesday is no different. There are plenty of good books to look out for that could heat up in the near future. Continue reading “A look ahead to Wednesday: October 23, 2013”
There is a good article over at bleeding cool this evening about trying to sell hot comics at NYCC. Jeremy Konrad writes about taking a stack of comics with him to NYCC to sell to help pay for his trip. Continue reading “Bleeding Cool article: The Evil Of Speculation Unleashed At NYCC”
We are running a series of look ahead this week to new series that may be worth checking out coming up in the next few months. A speculator always need to know what is on the horizon. Here are books coming out from Boom, Dynamite, Dark Horse, and other small publishers (not small press). Continue reading “A look ahead to November and December. Smaller Publishers”
Being a speculator, you have to stay ahead of the game and know what is coming out next week, and the immediate few future weeks. But it does not hurt to know what is coming out in the next couple of months. Here is a look at new books coming out in November and December and may be worth keeping on the radar.
The Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder List can give key insight into what is hot or going to be hot. It’s the list of what is most reordered by retailers before final order cut off and before the books ship. These books could be #2 issues coming off a hot selling #1, and event book, what customers are jazzed about coming into the store, or what retailers are hearing and selling based on what is going on in store or on blogs and message boards.

Thanks to Terry Hoknes at www.hoknescomics.com for this little tidbit. I know people laugh at kids comics being valuable or collectible, but I can say that I sold a ton of My Little Pony #1 Phantom Variants when they came out. Almost 99% went to adult males, as the Bronie culture (which I am NOT a part of) is so big. I caught a lot of flack from people in stores when I was picking the books up, but when they found out how much money I had been making off them, they picked up a couple too.

As expected, we have been saying this book was going to be good, ONI Press new release by (comicsheatingup.net favorite) Charles Soule Letter 44 has sold out. Continue reading “Letter 44 #1 from ONI Press sold out plus print run”
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.
Each week Terry Hoknes from www.hoknescomics.com releases a video spotlighting hot new comics. Here is this weeks, 10/16/13
