Picks of the week 5/8/13

Each week we spotlight a book or a couple of books that we thing are worth checking out and may rise in value. Here is our speculation picks of the week:


1. Walking Dead 110- you cannot go wrong picking up Walking Dead books. Th issue features Michonne and Ezekiel battling it out. A classic fan favorite versus the cool new guy with the tiger.

2. Über #1- sold out #0 and now #1 is already sold out. Sold out before it got to the stores. Avatar finally has a true hit on its hand. Über #0 also gets a second print this week.

3. Chin Music 1- Last week we saw Ben Templesmith’s new book with JMS, ‘Ten Grand’ make the list. Now we have his ’30 Days of Night’ co-creator’s new book. An Image number 1 is always a good bet, and with Steve Niles at the helm if this Lovecraft meets Hard boiled crime noir, we cannot pass it up. Also like ‘Ten Grand’ this one will have a phantom variant.

4. Twelve Reasons to Die- New publisher Blackmask Studios, run by Punk Rock Legend, Bret Gurewitz of Bad Religion Fame. Bringing in even more music star power is this is based on Ghostface Killah’snew album. Long shot but these things sometimes work out. This is backed up by store variants (tour variants) and a ticket variant which gets you into one of his shows.
