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.

I have never been a fan of Marvel’s first family. The comic series never appealed to me. The original two films never had anything of interest other than Jessica Alba. However, the newest trailer has piqued my interest for one reason: Deadpool Continue reading “New Fantastic Four Trailer features Deadpool”

We have been mentioning the early appearances of Deadpool and the potential for them to pop. Some of them have, and others are starting to. X-Force #2 being the obvious one. Continue reading “X-Force #11: A Comic Heating Up?”
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”
So we ran the first 10 Deadpool appearances last night here. Got the question “are people really chasing these books?” Looks like the answer is yes. Someone was obviously paying attention because Bleeding Cool ran the following story today:
Speculator Corner: X-Force #1 Bagged With Deadpool Card. Really?.
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.
