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.
Thanks to Kevin for this one.
So Marvel has Deadpool and DC has Harley. By far the two hottest characters in existence in the comic book world. In the most recent Harley Quinn issue, DC creates a Deadpool of their own. Continue reading “DC gets a Deadpool of their own”
Hey CHU, DrunkWooky checking in. Deadpool #6 is out tomorrow and as Anthony had in his picks of the week, it features the first appearance of Deadpool 2099. The interesting thing about the book is it is sold out at Diamond. It is also now sold out at Midtown and TFAW.
With this being said, I crunched the Comichron sales numbers for the new Deadpool series today. Continue reading “Deadpool #6 Market Analysis”
The official Deadpool Trailer just aired on Conan. It is essentially the same trailer that leaked out of SDCC, but of course, much clearer. The trailer just went online at the official Deadpool website, which takes you directly to Youtube currently. So without further ado, Deadpool the Trailer.

Adult (not that kind) coloring books are all the rage, just ask my wife. They are great stress relieving tools. Marvel is coming out with a line of Coloring books for grown ups and has added Deadpool to the mix. Continue reading “Color your own Deadpool”
So last nights piece on the first 10 appearances on Deadpool sparked a lot of conversation, one thing that was brought up was Deadpools supporting cast appearances. I thought it was a good idea and wanted to revisit it. So this goes out to Ckret Iskwrel for asking the question. Continue reading “Deadpool supporting cast appearances”
Dear me no… another one to go back issue bin diving for. In this case, the local landfill may also prove fortuitous.
When Marvel relaunched New Mutants as X-Force #1 with Rob Liefeld, they did so by bagging the comic with one of five trading cards, encouraging people to buy all five, plus one to open and read. And they sold five million of the bastards.
So that’s one million of each trading card variant.
And just as X-Force #2 and its second appearance of Deadpool is getting bizarre speculator behaviour considering how many were printed, so are X-Force #1 copies, still bagged, with a Deadpool trading card.
And so what was once a fifty cent book, rose to two dollars… then to four… and then to eight.
More, much more to come, it seems.
