Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder List 9/13/13

The Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list is one of those tools that Speculators can use to figure out what is going to be hot. The books are all ones that retailers have gone back to up their orders on. This could be for several different reasons; the previous issue sold better than expected, customer’s are coming in asking about the book, a new number 1, or message board and web site chatter. This weeks does not feature any villain month books! This is great because that is all that has been featured for the past 6 weeks.

Here is this week’s advanced reorder list:

1. Star Wars: The Lucas Draft #2- The first issue sold really well and fans are clamoring for Lucas’ original vision.

2. All New X-Men #17– Really the best X-Men book on the stands.

3. All New X-Men Special #1– See above

4. Catwoman #23 2nd print– No surprise as the appearance of Jokers Daughter has caused the book to sell out the say before it came out.

5. Hinterkind #1– New Vertigo Series. Vertigo has seen a rebirth over the past two months putting out Image quality books (used to be Image was putting out Vertigo quality.)

6. Walking Dead #1 10th Anniversary Edition– Buy Walking Dead #1 for $5.99 (in Color.)

7. Nova #9– Infinity Cross over. Great Marvel book that hasn’t taken off yet, and I do not know why.

8. Forever Evil #2– The story that started Villain’s month and the villains found out Nightwing’s identity.

9. Walking Dead #115 Midnight Release Party Variant– Special edition book for those stores doing an early release. This will be huge as will the actual #115 variants.

10. Marvel Knights Spiderman #1- Let the oversaturation of Spiderman books continue.

11. Captain America Living Legend #1– This is a re-solicit.

12. Witching Hour #1- Yeah Horror comics! nine new supernatural tales by a coven of the best writers and artists VERTIGO could cram into 70 pages.

‘Suicide 5’ interview with Jason Pell

We have talked a lot about Kickstarter projects being the breeding ground for hot new comics. We have seen ‘The Outliers’, ‘Watson and Holmes’, ‘Wild Blue Yonder’, ‘Voice in the Dark’, and others take off and become darlings of the secondary market. Some of these have ended up getting major distribution, and the Kickstarter variants being the ones really sought after. One book that is on my radar, ‘Suicide 5’, is being funded now, and for $20 you get the hard cover version. This one is on my radar because it is delightfully twisted in the content of the book.  Continue reading “‘Suicide 5’ interview with Jason Pell”

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.

Comic Picks of the week for Wednesday Sept. 11th 2013

Hey everyone, trying to get back on my regular schedule. Baltimore comic con really took its toll on me and my wallet, as did the 13 3d covers from last week. So I am looking for more flips. Here are this weeks books of the week based on what I, and others, think are going to be hot.

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.
