Poyo’s Spec & Drek for June 9th, 2021

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.

DC gets a Deadpool of their own

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.

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.

New Fantastic Four Trailer features Deadpool

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”

X-Force #11: A Comic Heating Up?

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?”

Deadpool supporting cast appearances

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”

Bleeding Cool Runs Deadpool spec story on X-Force #1

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.

First 10 Deadpool appearances

With the Deadpool movie announced for 2016, it is time to be proactive. Many of the earliest Deadpool appearances are dirt cheap in many stores back issue bins. These books could be great pickups, especially considering how well Rocket Raccoon appearances and Groot appearances have done leading up to and since the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Most of those books were ones people would not have normally touched, and suddenly they were huge.

Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder List 5/9/13

Diamond Advanced Reorder List

One way to guage how hot a comic is/will be is by the Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list. This gives retailers a chance to up their orders for books that may have caught some heat before the release and before the final order cut offs. So without further ado, this weeks advanced reorder list (Dominated by X-Men #1):
1. X-Men #1 – Marvels mutant Juggernauts (no pun intended.) Lead the charge. Stores getting increased interest in this new X-Men book.
2. East of West #3 – Strong sales on the first two issues and increase in price on the secondary market keeps bringing in new readers.
3. Wake #1 – New DC book
4. Injustice Gods Among Us #5 – Popularity on the video game tie in series continues. Prices strong on 1 & 2.
5. X-Men #1 Skottie Young Variant – Boy people love these baby covers.
6. Adventures of Superman #1 – Dc’s New Superman Series, how many titles above 52 are we now?
8. Injustice Gods Among Us #4 2nd print – see above…
9. X-men #1 50th Ann. Variant Variant
10. X-men #1 Deadpool Variant- People love Deadpool.
12. Clive Barker’s Next Testament #1 – Boom Studios new Clive Barker book looks fantastic and would be worth speculating on.
14. X-men #1 Blank Variant – I personally love having these to get sketches on.
16. Superman Unchained #1 – Jim Lee returns to Superman. Worth picking up. Will be pretty heavily printed so should be easy to get.
20,21, &25. Morning Glories #27 variant covers B (Frison) ,C (Guillory), E (McKelvie) Second season of the hit Nick Spensor book begins. Great jumping on point for new readers. #26 was $1 so might draw in new readers. Early ‘Morning Glories’ are hard to find and you will pay to get them.
