WORD?! CARNAGE

With Spider-man: Homecoming being released early next month there has been a lot of news coming out about the Sony Spider-Man universe. Early this week we found out that the Venom and Black and Silver (The Black Cat and Silver Sable Movie) would take place in the Spider-Man Homecoming universe. The new Spider-Man film is set up to be a trilogy so it is assumed all of these characters will eventually meet on screen.

Today The Hollywood Reporter announced that Carnage would appear in the Venom film. Carnage’s first full appearance (and first cover) has seen a lot of love today – there were three CGC 9.8 sales on ebay today for $375 – $400. Amazing Spider-Man #361 has been a key book sought after by collectors for some time.

However if you plan to spec on this character, Amazing Spider-Man #360 is the book you should be looking for. This book is currently very undervalued and features the first cameo appearance of Carnage. This book currently sells for $10 to $15 in Near Mint Condition.

Another book that should see an increase and is already pretty sought after, is Maximum Carnage #1 the Marvel / Acclaim promotional one-shot for the Maximum Carnage artridge video game from 1994. There is also the very limited QVC Maximum Carnage Box Set – limited to 5,000 for SNES and 5000 for the Genesis system. This box set came with the Cartridge game, Marvel pins and a Limited Edition leather bound HC that reprinted The Amazing Spider-Man #’s 344, 345, and 359 to 363.

Hollyweird: Week in Review June 20

Two things to be thinking about this week

This week sees the release of The “Swordquest Earthworld Classic Atari mini-comic” from Dynamite and Atari Comics. Swordquest is the first Atari property that Dynamite has turned into a comic book. Swordquest #0 debuted last month (at 25 cents!!) and this week sees the release of Swordquest #1.
The book to be looking for is the 1:10 ashcan / Mini Comic. For every 10 regular copies of Swordquest #1 that a retailer orders they receive ONE of the Swordquest mini-comics. This mini-comic (featuring a cover by George Perez) is a reprint of the original 1982 DC Mini Comic. Swordquest #1 should have a high print run in comparison to other Dynamite comics, but it would still be low compared to Marvel and DC books. The print run for issue #1 should be higher than most issue #1 Dynamite comics, just based on the 25 cent issue #0 that came out last month, but this mini comic will have 1/10 of the print run of the regular series. This is the book to be hunting for this week.

Another book to be thinking about this week is a Marvel Graphic Novel from the 80s. Bleedingcool wrote an article today saying Dave Cockrum’s creator owned property, the Futurians was being developed for a new comic and a TV series or a movie, with Rob Liefeld taking the reigns. I didn’t see anywhere in Patty Cockrum (Dave Cockrum’s wife and executive of Dave Cockrum’s estate) statement where any TV show or movie was confirmed but it does appear as if that is what the Cockrum estate is trying to push for.
Right now the only thing that has been confirmed is Rob Liefeld working on a new comic series for the Futurians. The Futurians first appeared in Marvel Graphic Novel 9 – a book that typically sells for under $10. With the Cockrum estate pushing the property this would be a great book to be buying and holding on to.

Week in Review: May 30 2018

There is really only one book to be looking for this week, Spawn Directors Cut 1 Per Store Retailer Appreciation Variant. This book features the Spawn #227 cover with a new coloring and with silver foil logos. This book was sent to every diamond account retailer making the print run 2 to 3 thousand. This book is currently selling for $80 to $100, I would expect the price to drop as more copies come to market, however, with the large Spawn fan base this could be a long term collectors item.

The Unquotable Trump is an ashcan comic book featuring classic comic covers redone featuring Donald Trump and various quotes from speeches he’s made.  Drawn and Quarterly picked up the comic and is publishing an over-sized treasury edition in November. In the past week on ebay this ashcan has sold from $15 to $30. You can still buy copies of this ashcan for $4 from this link.

Spotlight on Aftershock Comics

Last week saw the release of Aftershock Comics, Pestilence #1. Pestilence sold out at the distributor on day of release, copies of the book have been selling for double to triple cover price – Copies of the standard cover is currently selling for around $8.
While the 1:10 variant cover is selling for $20 to $30 – both retailer variants – The Comic Mint and Eh! Variant seem to be selling like gangbusters on the secondary market.

Another Aftershock title that has been seeing a lot of attention is Baby Teeth. Baby teeth features art by Garry Brown and is written by Donny Cates. This book has had a lot of buzz based on the success of Donny Cates previous projects God Country and Redneck. Baby teeth is due for release on June 7 and will have the largest print run of any Aftershock title, its also set to have 5+ retailer variant covers.
So why is this important? If retailer order and prerelease buzz are any indication, Baby Teeth is going to be big and when its released people are going to start trying to hunt down the first appearance of the title and its characters. The first appearance of Baby Teeth is the C2E2 Diamond Summit ashcan, distributed to retailers at the 2017 Diamond Summit in Chicago.

Hollyweird: April Edition


This week it was announced that Hulu has ordered a pilot for a Locke and Key series. Most articles about this say that there was a “very competitive” bidding war. Which seems unlikely considering there was no interest in the series after FOX ordered a pilot and decided not to move forward after filming was completed in 2011. Locke and Key #1 seems to be the book people are looking for.

It was announced this week that Sony was making a live action movie about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. This is sure to bring more attention to DC Comics Presents #47 – the first appearance of He-Man in comics.

Screen Shot 2017-04-27 at 3.50.55 PM

Joe Benitez creator of Lady Mechanika took to facebook this week to announce his Lady Mechanika creator owned series had been optioned for a television series. Lady Mechanika has been a popular indie series upon release, since this news broke there has been a lot of interest in the series first issue Lady Mechanika #0 and its various printings and variants. Something that has been largely ignored is that Lady Mechanika first appeared in a pin-up piece by Joe Benitez in Worlds of Aspen FCBD 2010. This book could see a lot of interest if the television series ever comes to fruition.

It was also confirmed this week that Adam Warlock would be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Week In Review January 9

Another week and just a few books with some speculation value.

Klaus #1 – Grant Morrison’s Santa Claus story seems to continue to heat up on the secondary market. Released in November and currently on a third printing, the first print of this book steadily sells for $10. This book has great quick flip potential!

This week in the CW Comic Universe, Firestorm reappeared on Flash after being killed off. Robbie Amell (the actor that plays Firestorm) is a fan favourite so bringing his character back after death is a no brainer. However, following in the Brightest Day/Blackest Night DC Storyline the reemerged Firestorm is returning as Deathstorm. Deathstorm’s first appearance is currently not on anybody’s radar. However, this book has a lot of potential in growth seeing as Robbie Amell has been rumoured to return to Legends of Tomorrow and will have a continued life within the CW Comic Universe. The first appearance of Deathstorm, Brightest Day #10, has a regular cover and a 1:10 ratio variant cover – both of these books have great potential for growth as this character is developed.

A book that came out this week that you should be looking for is Heavy Metals’s Interceptor #1. Released with two 50/50 covers – this book has sold out at Diamond Distributors – this book is currently trending upwards, currently selling for a few dollars above cover. This book, either cover, is one to be looking for.

Week in Review: December 3 / Black Mask

Another week, another three books to be on the look out. All three of these books have sold out at Diamond Comics Distributors and all three of these comics are selling for above cover and heating up on ebay!

IMG_0003Another new release from 451 media usually means another week of talking about 451 Media. This week is no exception seeing the release of the second issue of Sunflower – the first book to start heating up from the publisher. Sunflower #2 is no exception from the previous releases from this publisher and is already selling for $10 on ebay. This is a book to be looking for as there is certainly a lot of moving room with this relatively new publisher.

IMG_0009Another new publisher to just hit the scene this week is Overground comics releasing two new series but really only one of note. Graduate #1 – written by Jon Hughes and with art from fashion designer Celia Callie. This book has been fetching double cover on the online market and is starting to creep up. Another book to be keeping an eye out for.

Screen shot 2015-12-03 at 12.28.46 AMThe last book that came out this week that you should be looking for is Z2 Comics’s Carver A Paris Story #1. This book sold out on Diamond a week before release and features a 1:2 variant cover by Paul Pope. This is another book already selling for double cover.


Something else to be thinking about is the Black Mask Mailing List Variant Set. This set will probably eventually be made available to the public – but its currently being offered on the Black Mask website for $50 – featuring all new variant covers by Alexis Zirrit of Space Riders the book includes a Black Mask T-Shirt and new covers for Young Terrorists #1, We Can Never go Home #1, Liberator #1, Ballistic Volume one Trade Paperback and a Godkiller Volume one Trade paperback. Also there is a one in 100 chance of receiving a Black Mask golden ticket, something that still hasn’t been revealed yet. Something to be checking out!
