From CBR.com:

“Spider-Gwen” has been one of Marvel’s breakout successes in recent months, and the publisher looks to capitalize on the character’s popularity (and make some Gwen-based puns) in June with the previously announced “Gwen Variants” — a series of variant covers featuring Gwen Stacy taking on the identities of other Marvel superheroes.

Untitled drawing (1)
Here is an odd one for a Wednesday Winner. Ravenous #1, very small press book, is doing well on ebay. It is selling for as much as $20. You might say this book came out last week. You would be partially right, as it was released in certain stores only. Continue reading “Wednesday Winner: Ravenous #1”

‘DMC Devil May Cry The Chronicle of Vergil’ Sold out at distributor level

dmc

Looks like the video game tie-in ‘ DMC Devil May Cry The Chronicles of Vergil’ is sold out through Diamond and cannot be reordered. This is not something that appeared on the Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list and could have a small print run as it is coming from a small Press company Titan Comics.

Video Game Tie-ins have done well in the past, ‘Injustice Gods Among Us’ comes to mind, but others have not done so well.

Remember, when something sells out at the distributor level, it does not mean you cannot get it in the store, it means your store cannot reorder and once they sell out its over (or on to reprints.)

Top Cow’s ‘The Test’ moves past $27

As we said the other day, what a difference a few days can make in selling a comic book. Top Cow Pilot Season 2011 now has a confirmed break out star in Matt Hawkins, ‘The Test.’

 

The one book that had been up on eBay has moved nicely in the sub-$30 range and is creeping up. With 16 bids the book is currently at $27.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Test-1-NM-Hawkins-Fialkov-I-Vampire-Think-Tank-/181119261808?pt=US_Comic_Books&hash=item2a2b8c9c70

 

Other copies are now available starting at .99 cents but there has been no bidding activity to date. There also have been no buy-it-nows or completed auctions for the book with sales. This is the test for “The Test.”
