Welcome to this weeks spec and drek. This is where we pick the winners each week we (or shall I say myself) think will be spec worthy, a great read or just cool looking art on the cover. I also dive into the pesky drek, the book you should probably avoid if you can or perhaps not invest so heavily into.

This weeks MARVELous Monday is a bit different. Usually I window shop the Marvel Unlimited app to pick and choose sort of at random the books I cover based on just the cover art that catches my attention.
This week I actually am going with the book I found at Half Price Books for just a buck. It’s just a shame it wasn’t truly half price from it’s original 30 cents cover price.

The last Wednesday of February 2019 is upon us. Got some great looking Killer B covers hitting shelves this week but this weeks looking kind of weak to me. Not a lot of indie or small publisher books to choose from.

Sorry for being away for a couple of days. In addition to the Black Mask signing this weekend, I have also been terribly sick. After a few nights of crashing out early, I am back on the mend and trying to get things back on track. With that said, I came across this gem again. The 1994 Fantastic Four movie trailer for the Roger Corman directed film. Just goes to show there was a time when the Marvel Cinematic Universe was not so great.
