Week in Review: DONALD TRUMP

This has been a very slow month for comic speculation but there are two things this week that stand up.

Donald Trump is the president. But did you know that there was a comic book that came out in 1990 that eerily featured aspects of life in 2016. This isn’t the first comic book appearance of Donald Trump- CORRECTION: Donald Trumps First appearance in Comics is Ironman #228 from March 1988 and not Hup! #13 by R.Crumb as previously stated. This 1990 book is Heavy Metal July 1990 featuring the story The Wall by Peter Kuper.

Featuring scenes of civil unrest, the building of a wall, the deportation of a large group are just some of the weird parallels to the 2016 US election. (It even features the “Dump Trump” phrase). The full story can be read here.

This book was first reported by Bleedingcool and since being reported about has sold out on ebay. – this book has the potential to be a $40+ book by next week and is a book you should be looking for! (This book is available on the Heavy Metal website for $4)

Another book that has started to heat up that you should be looking for is the new Dark Horse series – World of Tanks #1 – this book, written by Garth Ennis and based on the popular video game has been selling online for upwards of $10 to $15. Great flip potential!

Week in Review: November 2

There is not a lot of talk about this week – Here are a two books that came out this month to be looking for at your Local Comic Book Store.

Antartic Press’s new Presidential coloring book seems to be a hit on ebay. With a cover price of $3.99 this book has been selling for $1o to $15 on ebay. This book is probably at your LCS and can still be ordered off the Antartic Press website for cover price. This book has a very cool Hulk 181 swipe cover so it could have legs down the road.

Another book that has started to see some hype is Mockingbird #8. This is the last issue of the Mockingbird series and has caused what appears to be faux outrage. This book has been selling for $12 to $20 and because the book was such a slow seller is very easy to find in the wild.
