DC Comics Villains month covered at

DC Comics Villains month covered at

I am occasionally asked to write on Pop-Culture events for my local newspaper. The articles also run at the Here is the latest one in reference to DC’s Villains month 3d covers.



DC 3d covers week 2 results

Well we all know these were going to sell. We just didn’t know how many or how much. I sold through my first weeks covers (held my breath a little) but ended up doubling my money on them (even after ebay fees.) At first it looked sketch but it worked out. 


Here is what this weeks 3d covers are going for.

A look ahead to this Wednesday

I usually give my picks of the week late Tuesday or at the latest early Wednesday. I also like to give a heads up on what else is coming out during the week that may be worth a pick up. Because of being at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend, I am a day behind. So here is a look ahead at what is being released this week.

1. Walking Dead #114 As the book continues to grow and so does the show, more people keep grabbing up issues. Always a good bet.

2. Rachel Rising #19 Still a great book with fantastic story and art by Terry Moore. It was optioned and since they all have a low print run could still be worth the pick up (one of my monthly titles.)

3. The Other Dead #1 The comic has three covers, a regular, a subscription, and an Obama Variant which has already been bringing notice to the series. . This has caused heat just due to the cover image. The story is about zombie animals. May have been delayed a week, but don’t sleep on this one.

4. Ghosted #3 I seriously think this will get made into a movie. It has Kirkman’s star power behind it as it comes out from Skyward.

5. Collider, I mean, Federal Bureau of Physics #3 is still one of Vertigo’s best reads.

6. Brain Boy #1 Dark Horse continues to expand it’s heroes line with this remake of a classic Golden Age character.

7. Eternal Warrior #1 I was never a fan of the original Valiant stuff, but the new launches have been fantastic. This one looks cool from the preview I read.

CGC-ing ‘The Outliers’ #1? Here is what you should know

Thank you to Matthew Swanson for the info.

I received an email this morning in reference to a request sent to CGC about grading ‘The Outliers #1’. There are two issues with the book that have to be accounted for. The first is, many of the books shipped from the publisher had a sticker over the bar code. this was done as some of the bar code printed had the black run together, which made them unreadable by a bar code scanner. The second issue is the dust cover the book was wrapped in. Here is the response from CGC.

Wednesday’s sold out books

Speculator Pick: Batman Family #6, 1st JOKER’S DAUGHTER!

Thanks to Dakoit at for the heads up on this one. Make sure you check out his blog.

Hello Everyone!

Hope all you had a wonderful restful long weekend! I just got back from my brother’s wedding, and had just a beautiful time with all my friends and family. That’s how long weekends should be spent. Happiest time of my life. 🙂

Well well, from the title, I’m actually now going on three weeks strong on the bat-verse of characters. This week, I just had to cover the first appearance of a particular female who’s been on every speculators radar of late. Many comic stores have sold out of her re-introduction in the DC NEW 52. Naturally, this would be a great time to discuss her first appearance.  Batman Family #6 introduced the world to ‘Joker’s Daughter’: Continue reading “Speculator Pick: Batman Family #6, 1st JOKER’S DAUGHTER!”

Market Watch ‘Chronos Commandos’

By Terry Hoknes of

CHRONOS COMMANDOS #1 (Titan Comics, 2013) Small print run small publisher instant sell out of issues #1 and #2. Both issues have sold as high as $12.00 each on ebay – numerous high sales – unique comic ties dinosaurs and nazi’s into an action storyline. Sales print run so small that neither issue even charted on the monthly Diamond Top 300.

Market Watch ‘Trinity of Sin: Pandora’

By Terry Hoknes of

TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA (DC, 2013) 1st printings of both issues #1 and #2 sold out immediately in the summer x-over tie-in with Justice League America. #1 print run at 35,106 ranked #67 for July 2013. However the Justice League #22 issue sold 110,000 copies so a definite shortage for those who wanted to read both. Trinity #2 had a print run of 32,170 which was almost the same showing how much orders had been increased as sales for #2 issues usually cuts in 1/2.
Trinity #1 1st printings have had numerous sales above $10 with $12.00 so far the highest price reached. Many sales of #2 at $5.00 each.

Market watch ‘Steam Wars’

By Terry Hoknes of

STEAM WARS (ANTARCTIC PRESS, 2013) #1 had a very small print run of only 2,399 copies and came out in April so it has 5 months to definitely sell out and heat up. 4 sales so far all at $14.99 each for #1 have helped dry up the entire market and now copies on ebay are priced at $25 to $30.00 each. #2 has an even smaller print run. #3 comes out next week! A steampunk version of Star Wars !! By Fred Perry (Gold Digger). A not so long ago, in a galaxy relatively close by began an epic struggle on a world seized in the grip of an evil Victorian empire, the Hegemonic Crux. Only a ragged alliance of rebels oppose the emperor and his black guard, but hope is fading. While fleeing from the steam-driven war machines of her imperial pursuers, Duchess Imoen stumbles across the home of the last Dragoon: the legendary storm foil warriors of ancient lore! This new (but strangely familiar) steam-fantasy epic will give thrills that haven’t been felt since 1977!

A look ahead at next Wednesday

While next week will be clearly about getting one thing at your local comic shop for its collect-ability, and potential profit, DC’s 3-d Villain month covers, make sure not to miss out on these potential sleepers. Continue reading “A look ahead at next Wednesday”
