Week in Review: October 27

This week sees the release of the mini-Free Comic Book day Comic Book Store holiday known as Halloween fest. Halloween Fest is another comic book store event, like free comic book day, one day a year where retailers give out special Halloweenfest edition comic books.

Among this years books is the second appearances of Dollface, Zombie Tramp Vs The Doll-Faced Witch Hunter #1– Dollface is the new Action lab comic series from the creator of Zombie Tramp, Dan Mendoza. Like Zombie Tramp, Dollface was a book that was successfully crowd-funded through Kickstarter. The first appearance of Dollface appeared in a Dollface #1 issue that was given out at the Baltimore Retailer Summit from Action Lab Comics (released September 3, 2016) – The first appearance is being published in December through Mendonza for Kickstarter funders while Action Lab is releasing Dollface #1 to comic book stores for January. So the halloween comicfest edition will be the first time comic book stores see a Dollface comic.

Why is this important? Zombie tramp has built up a cult following where the first print, first appearance of the character in near mint condition sells for north of $1000 and the Action Lab #1 sells for $10 to $20. Dollface coming from the same creator and same crowd funded based origin means this book could already have a following.
Also worth highlighting is that this Halloween comicfest comic is already selling for $8 to $12 online. Not bad for something you can pick up for free at your LCS on October 29.

Another book that has started to see some heat is the Eclipse series by Timothy Truman, Scout. Scout #1 has flown off ebay at reasonable prices – the cheapest available copy on ebay is $20. Scout has been optioned by Studio 8 who wants to turn the comic series into a live action film. This is great news considering this book is more often then not found for $1 at comic book shows and comic book stores with bargain sections!
