This week sees the release of a few books you should be thinking about.
DC’s Vertigo imprint has been publishing a lot of new titles recently – this week sees the release of there newest title Hex Wives #1. This book has two covers and one of them is by Jenny Frison. The Frison cover has a few sales online averaging $8.
Another book that comes out this week that has been selling well online is the cover B for Image Comic’s Ice Cream Man #8. This variant cover, featuring a sad clown eating ice-cream, has been selling online for $8 to $15.
Two other books that come out this week that have been selling above cover in presale are the Justice League Dark and Wonder Women: Witching Hour #1 cover B and the Cover B variant for Marvel’s Avengers Halloween Special #1.
There are a lot of different aspects to the Age of Ultron Avengers film. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the Ironman Hulkbuster suit – first appearing in Ironman #304. This book has spiked up in price in the past few months selling for about $20 – $40.
Another Ironman armour that will appear in the upcoming film is the Bleeding-Edge Iron Man Armour. This armour was created by Matt Fraction during his Invincible Iron Man run. The Bleeding-Edge Armour suit is always inside of Tony Stark and he can command it to appear – this is because he needs his armour to live to run the repulsor technology running his heart.
This armour ALREADY has Hot Toy and adult collector action figures, however, the Disney Store now has an exclusive Marvel Legends figure featuring the armour.
SO what does this mean? Making action figures with this armour and distinguishing it as a special suit shows that the Bleeding Armour Iron Man is in the Marvel Universe to stay. A good book to be looking for and buying now would be that costume’s first appearance – Largely undervalued – and findable for under $4 – The Invincible Iron Man #25. This book also features the first appearance of Detroit Steel – a villain that based on its backstory will appear again in Iron Man story lines.
This book had two standard covers and several variants including Robert Downey Jr. Movie variants – and once people realize its significance has only one place to go. Up.
