Word?! President Evil #1

For some reason I didn’t talk about these two books in my previous post.

Coming out this week and sold out on diamond is Antartic Press’s President Evil #1 Volume 2 Make America (taste) great again. Antartic Press had a few copies available for sale on there website that have since sold out. This book has sold on ebay for upwards of $15 – but the sales are currently trending at double / triple cover – steadily selling for $8 to $10.

This is a book to be keeping an eye out for.

Week in Review March 21

A few things this week.

Elektra #2 1:25 Adi Granov variant cover comes out this week and is preselling for $80 to $100 online. Second issues are typically under-ordered so this one could have strong legs for the next few weeks. Definitely a book to be asking your local comic book store about.

Bleedingcool did an article today about the new Wolverine character that is being teased by Marvel in the upcoming X-Men event. Marvel released the cover images of X-Men Blue #5 and #6 but blurred out the new Wolverine character. Bleedingcool is saying that this teased character is Jimmy Hudson – Wolverines son (Not Daken – Another son). This seems like the most likely scenario. This character first appeared in Ultimate X #1 from 2010. There are a few variants for this book but most covers are currently selling for under $10. This is a book to be looking for and holding onto until we find out who this character is.

Skybound Entertainment finally revealed the comic book that would be offered in the Second Megabox. I previously wrote about the Skybound Megabox here – its a Skybound themed loot crate. The second box ships out at the end of this month and features FOUR  exclusive comic books. The First comic offered in this program is still selling for $40 and just today there was a sale for ONE of the comics in the second box that sold for $50! Here are the four exclusive comics – also included is a Vinyl figure (bloody or unbloody), a unannounced Mcfarlane studio toy AND MORE.

Catch-up Picks
Totally Awesome Hulk #3 (2016)

In Near Mint condition this book has flown off most online marketplaces, its not selling well raw but if the Kid Kaiju series does well this book will start to pick up. Also, CGC 9.8 copies of this book are selling north of $100.

Week in Review: March 17

The second book you should be looking for this week is the Fiona Staples Grass Kings #1 Variant cover. Investcomic and other speculation websites have been talking about this book and its possible potential upon release. This book was added on retailer final order cutoff which resulted in many stores not ordering copies. It is basically a cover B variant. Currently selling for $7 to $10 online.

LOGAN: SPOILER POST

Remember to follow Comic Book Scalping on facebook. I post facebook exclusive speculation content.

This post contains spoilers.

.

.

.

.

The one take away from the Wolverine 3: Logan film you should be thinking about is Who is X-24. X-24 is a clone of Wolverine (as as pointed out by comicbook.com) this is not the first clone of wolverine to appear in the marvel universe.

In the second Wolverine series in 1991, issue 37, Leader of the Reevers, Donald Pierce created a clone of Wolverine named Albert. The leader of the Reevers in the Logan film is named Pierce and has little involvement in the creation of the X-24 but does have involvement. X24 is an identical clone of Wolverine.

If there is anything to take away from Logan its this book, which will have a very limited shelf life, the first appearance of Albert – Clone of Wolverine – Wolverine Vol. 2 #37

Week in Review: February 21

Vault comics is a new comic publisher that started bringing out its titles last week. Last week saw the release of Tim Daniels, Fissure #1 from Vault. It subsequently has sold out at Diamond and is starting to trend online. It currently has two sales on ebay above cover, all best offer sales (1 and 2).
Vault is released another book this week and it is starting to follow the same trend as Fissure. This book isn’t written by Tim Daniels and seems to have some pretty solid content. That title is Heathen #1. Heathen is being pushed as a viking lesbian love story with lots of violence so it could potentially have legs. This is the book you should be looking for tomorrow.

Another book coming out tomorrow that has two versions, a regular copy and a limited edition Hardcover is the Legend of Zelda Art and Artifacts Limited Edition HC, published by Dark Horse Comics. The Limited Edition Hardcover has been selling well in presales in the past few weeks, has a very cool fold out sword cover, and has been sold out on every online retailer imaginable for weeks. The Hardcover retails for $75 USD and has sold this week for $130 USD. Comic book and book stores start to receive copies this week and it is definitely something you should be keeping an eye out for.

Word?!?! Sam and Twitch

Seven years ago Todd Mcfarlane confirmed that he was working on a Sam and Twitch TV series. Sam and Twitch are two characters that first appeared in Spawn #1 and later had a spin-off series written by up and coming writer at the time, Brian Michael Bendis. Today it was announced that Kevin Smith was writing the Sam and Twitch TV-series for the BBC.

The first appearance of the characters Sam and Twitch is Spawn #1 but there are two other characters in their universe that you should be speculating on.

Jinx – this is a creator owned character created by Brian Michael Bendis in 1996 that he later brought over to Image. Jinx is an assassin who first appeared in Sam and Twitch in issue #15.  Her first comic book appearance is Jinx #1 from Caliber Press. (later reprinted by Image)

The other recurring character in the Sam and Twitch comic universe that appeared in at least 16 different issues of the Sam and Twitch spin-off series, Dr. K. C. Mcrory. Dr. K. C is a crime scene investigator so depending on how heavy this series focuses on crime, this character should be appearing in the tv-series. Dr. K.C. Mcrory’s first appearance is the first issue of Sam and Twitch #1 from 1999.

Both Jinx #1 and Sam and Twitch #1 are very affordable books that can easily be found in the wild for under $10.

Week in Review: February 15

Not a lot happening this week. I am still taking tips for speculation through e-mail and I credit everyone that gives me information.
If for some reason you think I owe you credit – do not hesitate to contact me at Hiphopfcomics@gmail.com

This was first brought up on the CBSI Google+ page by  UltraMaximus.

Out this week and already selling well is the second printing of Gods Country #1.

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-6-49-17-pm
Some stores are reporting that they were allocated copies, which means that Diamond didn’t fulfill the stores complete order and only partially filled it – which means the book is already sold out at Diamond and the demand is greater then the print run.
This book can still be found in the wild but online this book is starting to sell for $10! Long term this book might not hold its value. God’s Country is only two issues so far and sales trends of Gods Country #1 show in the past few weeks the book has started trending down (Average sale price on ebay January 11 $16.99. Average sale price February 15 $12) -which puts Gods Country #1 second print in the quick flip category.

If you can find copies list them fast and don’t look back.
