Welcome to my own weekly spec which includes the weekly drek picks. I pick what I think will be winners, not only if you make money by flipping but winners as in either a great read or just awesome art.
Then there’s the pesky drek, the comic you should avoid altogether or not fall into the buying every variant trap.

It’s that time again to spec and drek. We pick what we think will go on to be winners, whether it’s value or just a great story. We also throw in a loser pick, what we should not bother buying.

It’s tax day here in America, actually by the time this posts, it’s almost too late so I hope everyone paid their taxes on time or the taxeth man a cometh for you! Hopefully you all overpaid throughout last year and will use your refunds all on new comics, cause that’s what I’d do if I was getting a refund.

It’s once again the time for New Comic Book day! This week seems to be a bit more exciting than a few of the previous weeks. We know the strong start of 2018 couldn’t last into all weeks and months, but it sure has been fun so far.

This year has been exciting so far. Lots of specs (and lots of drek), lots of heat and surprisingly Marvel has been the big winners this year so far, even with a few surprise hits (Prelude book.. who would have thought a prelude book would heat up).

Life gets in the way of all the things I’d rather be doing. I’m just now getting around to my picks less than 2 hours when we publish them usually. So it’s going to be short and sweet this week as I don’t even have an Indie Pick but rather two small publisher picks instead.

It’s Valentines new comic week, hopefully the books show us some love on specs and reads like we feel entitled to with our loved ones. Lucky for me I’ve already done Valentines with the missus about a week back since she’s busy on her current show.

It’s that time again. First month down in 2018 and now we find ourselves in February after a really exciting January for comic speculation and flipping. Hopefully February keeps up in the positive trend of great books, great flips and the comic world keeping us entertained.

The fifth Wednesday of the month, the lame duck Wednesday we should call it. The day most publishers put out crap or nothing since they try to schedule their monthly releases based on the normal 4 weeks per month.

Last week was exciting for us comic flippers and speculators. If you missed one book, there was likely another book you could grab to flip and sell. One surprise I think was Avengers with the Voyager appearance. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Avengers book heat up in the same week of release like #676 did.

It’s that time again, every Tuesday evening, CHU releases all these articles for the upcoming new comic book Wednesday. The day we all think about new books and forget everything else that’s important in life while dreaming of what books we’ll be buying and possibly flipping come Wednesday morning.

It’s that time again. When we spend our hard earned cash on new comic books. Sure Christmas is this coming Monday but that’s not going to stop us from stopping by the ‘ol local comic shop to pick up some goodies for ourselves.

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But Poyo’s picks are so delightful,
Since you don’t need other sites,
Let us spec! Let us spec! Let us spec!

Hopefully everyone survived their family this past Thanksgiving week. If you went shopping on Thursday, shame on you. If you went shopping on Friday morning, you’re brave and also stupid at the same time but hopefully you had enough turkey and food to last a few more days. The best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers.

It’s turkey week here in America. For all of you not aware of American holidays, this Thursday is the day all us Americans sit down to celebrate something that never actually happened. But we like to think we’re really nice people who get along with the people we stole land from.

Halloween has arrived and so has new comic Wednesday. For me, this is really another uneventful week for new books. There might be a few surprise spec’s or winners but for the most part, even if there are, I don’t expect them to last long.
This week is so boring, I don’t really see a reason to even rush out to my shop when it opens like I usually do to score some cover price variants.

Halloween is upon us. The Walking Dead Season 8 starting back up with the All Out War story line has me started in comparing the books with the show. We also get blessed with some new Stranger Things episodes with Season 2 coming out on Netflix. The Simpsons Halloween special was awesome this past Sunday as well. This is just a great time a year for entertainment.

NYCC is now in the not so distant past. It was a blast hanging out with Anthony and Tyson from ToyBoxOne. I went for the comics but made more money flipping toys. Maybe I should start focusing on toys rather than comic books, eh?
Now that I’m all rested up (but swamped with daily life, work and now get to uber the kids around as the wife started work on a really cool show, so I’ll be seeing her maybe next July as the shows shooting supposedly runs through June of next year).. let’s get on with the picks this week. Continue reading “Poyo's Picks for October 11th, 2017”
Welcome back to another new comic book week, where we all get our geek on with new books hitting the shelves at our local comic book shops.
This week is smaller than usual, seems there’s not as many new books hitting shelves, DC and Dynamite and IDW seem to have less than normal new books. There is a Paul Pope variant for M.A.S.K. #1 hitting stands, so be on the look out for that one. I know Anthony is gonna be searching for it more than likely.

You know what’s better than spending time with the family and eating lots of turkey? New comic book day. Forget Thursday, this Wednesday is bound to be better with lots of new comics hitting the shelves. Yeah, you heard me, new comic book day is like Christmas every week. Where you get to go treat yourself with all the crap you don’t really need but you really need it or your life feels empty. So go buy those comic books, pick up a few extra, some titles you wouldn’t necessarily pick up. You deserve it. Continue reading “Poyo's Picks for November 23, 2016”
