Week in Review August 19 – Back on Track

Back from a longer then usual hiatus is my Week in Review for August 19.

This week sees the release of Black Mask’s highest page number first issue with 64 pages and a 6.99 price tag. This book and its three covers are already selling for $10 to $15 on ebay. This is not a book to be sleeping on. Cover B seems to have the most potential.

Another book that most retailers received today was the Invader Zim Retailer Thank You #1 (Possibly regarded as the RRP) featuring a cover by Avatar the Last Air-Bender co-creator Bryan Konietzko – a similar cover with a SDCC logo is also floating out there however this book is limited to 500 copies and was sent directly from Boom to retailers. Your LCS should have a copy. This book is selling for $30 to $60 and is a book to be looking for.

Big News came out this week about Fantagraphics first on-going series Hip Hop Family Tree (also debuting this week) from creator Ed Piskors facebook account.

The book to look for is the 2014 Hip Hop Family Tree FCBD Fantagraphics comic. This book sells on ebay for around $15 in near mint condition – it is the first appearance of Hip Hop family tree being published before the Hip Hop Family Tree Volume One debut. If this TV happens, this book will explode.
