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.
While next week will be clearly about getting one thing at your local comic shop for its collect-ability, and potential profit, DC’s 3-d Villain month covers, make sure not to miss out on these potential sleepers. Continue reading “A look ahead at next Wednesday”

A review of this weeks new books. Books shown include Batman 66, Kiss Kids, Numbercruncher, Zenescope Oz.
Each week hundreds of new comics hit the shops. Each week we pick the ones we think are going to heat up. Here are this weeks picks of the week.
Normally, the Diamond Comics advanced reorder list gives speculators a good idea on what is heating up based on what retailers are scrambling to reorder before final order cut off. This week it tells us only one thing, GET THE 3-D DC covers for yourself and for flipping if you can. All the books have been allocated to stores. You may not get the covers. These books have already started selling for multiple times cover price before they have been released. They are sold out. Standard covers are being sent to fill the demand, but not sure anyone will care about the standard covers.

Marvel was very proud to announce that Infinity #1 sold out at the distributor level. Selling out through Diamond Comics does not mean you will not be able to get this book in your local comic shop, but when there stock is gone, it’s gone.
One of the recent books I have been very intrigued by has been Shelter #1. Labeled as a Pre-apocalypse story, it follows survivalists preparing for the worst, and getting something completely unexpected. Continue reading “Sheltered #1 Print run”
With the second issue of the ongoing series Ghosted out today, and the second printing of number one, I figured it might be nice to know the print run. For a Skybound book it was less than I imagined especially since a preview ran in The Walking Dead. Continue reading “Print run of Ghosted #1”
I had a conversation with a large regional retailer that is in with the creative team behind Wild Blue Yonder, the hit and sold out creator owned book from IDW. We often trade speculation info back and forth and I know this retailer to be a stand up guy who is in the know. I am not going to name the retailer or the shop, it’s not Larry, because I appreciated the info. Continue reading “IDW’s Wild Blue Yonder, the movie?”
One way to tell what is going to be hot is by looking at what retailers are going back to reorder before the books ship. This list is called the Diamond Comics Advanced reorder list.

Without a doubt, this weeks advanced reorder list indicates that the hot book to pick up is Continue reading “Diamond Comics Advanced reorder List 8/9/13”
