Week in Review: October 18

This has been a slow week for comic speculation but there are two interesting books I’d like you to know about.

This week saw the release of Kid Lobotomy #1 from IDWs new Black Crown imprint. There was a 250 limited NYCC variant and this book was previewed in the free Black Crown preview comic released a few weeks ago however the cover to look for came out this week. Kid Lobotomy #1 has a 1:10 gold foil variant cover and due to a “manufacturing error” IDW and Diamond have recalled all copies of this comic. IDW has asked all retailers to destroy all copies of this cover. Will retailers destroy copies? Probably not, but nothing drives up demand for a comic like announcing its been recalled. Since news of the recall broke, this book has been selling for $15 to $25.

Speaking of Manufacturing errors, this weeks Zdarsky “how to draw” variant for Mighty Thor #700 has a big one. This book was manufactured with the wrong back cover – instead of an advertisement – the back cover is the same as the Spider-Gwen #25 back cover for the Unknown Comics retailer variant. Copies have sold on ebay for $10 to $12 – double cover price. All copies distributed by diamond have this error. Marvel and Diamond have not issued a recall for this book.
