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.
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.
FX announced yesterday that they ordered a Pilot episode for a comic book project they were working on; Legion, and announced they were also developing a project related to the Helfire Club. This is great news for speculators as Legion is a characters whose first appearance regularly appears in dollar and three dollar bins – under $10 bins in high grade. Legion (David Haller) is the son of Charles Xavier – first appearing briefly in New Mutants #25 with a full origin in New Mutants #26. New Mutants #26 is the book to be looking for however New Mutants #25 is also a winner.
Both of these books regularly sold for under $4 on ebay but since yesterday have been peaking up to $30 (for Near Mint New Mutants #25). These two books are ones to look for.
There is also word out that the Hellfire Club is being developed by the same studio has a projected television series. It is unclear what incarnation will be used but X-Men #129 is a sure beat at this point.
Another book to be looking for at your local comic book stores that came out this week is Black Mask’s Clandestino #1 – already selling for double cover in the $8 to $10 range – this could be another big Black Mask title and not one to sleep on.
After a few small hick-ups with the behind the scenes production, news came out this week that Skybounds Clone has moved to Universal Studios and is moving forward as a Live-Action TV-series. Clone was first optioned in 2013, but since then has seen a steady decrease in value. This is sure to change with more positive news coming out about the series. Clone #1 has two covers on release however it is the more recent very rare and limited Black and White SDCC Skybound collectors box edition that you should be looking for. There are 250 to 500 copies of this book floating around, with average sale prices of $20 and a considerably lower print run then the first print issue, this is the Clone book to be looking for.
Thursday of this week saw the release of NYCC Funko Pop Exclusives at Hot Topic. Still available in very limited quantities at select stores, who are rumoured to receive more on friday – these pops retail for $14.99 and $20 for the larger Pops. The one to look for is the Game of Thrones Iron Throne – this Funko is designed for other Funko Pops to sit on and should have long term holding value. The other POPS are also selling for twice what they are being offered for at Hot Topic. (Two of the items are available on the Hot Topic website, the Throne is sold out online – Here and Here)
Another book to look for is Titan Comics Blood Thirsty #1. Titan Comics can be hit or miss – this book is still available on the Titan Comics website and has been selling for $8 to $10. Great Quick Flip potential, not a book to be holding on to as almost all Titan comics lose value – one can just look at the Tank Girl prices upon release and sell out and compare them to the prices now, most titan comics drop in value.
Last week news came out about the casting of Misty Knight, Luke Cage’s Love interest, for the new Netflix Iron Fist TV-Show. Very soon after that Bleeding cool ran an article called speculation corner spotlighting Marvel Premiere #20. What Bleedincool neglected to “spotlight” was that Misty Knight doesn’t appear in Marvel Premiere #20, she is just brought up as an idea, which shouldn’t even qualify as a cameo appearance.
Misty Knight does appear, in full, in Marvel Premiere #21. While all online copies have pretty much been scooped up or marked up, this book is still very findable in the wild for under $20, while selling in the $40 to $60 range. Both of these books have potential, however, Marvel Premiere #21 will be the clear winner.

Max Max Fury Road Furiosa #1 is a one-shot that has sold out at Diamond days before it was to be released ( on June 17). This book is already selling for $10 in ebay presale and still has some room for growth. The previous Max Max Fury Road #1 sold for up to $30, it currently sells for around $15 to $18 which is still a jump from its $5.99 cover price however these arn’t books to be sitting on as they seem to have a small sales window of opportunity. Unlike the previous Max Max book, Furiosa #1 has a blank variant cover – based on the current popularity of Max Max this book has a lot of potential.
Another book that goes on sale on June 17 that has already sold out at Diamond is Minions #1 from Titan publishing. Still riding on the five year success of the 2010 Despicable Me film and its tie-in / sequel films, Minions #1 is already preselling for $10 on ebay! If the recently released limited edition Minion Tic Tacs are any sign of heat, retailing for $1.50 and selling for $10 on ebay – The Minions have a huge following and this book will have a strong following for some time.
I’m not really following Marvel’s current storylines. I was really into Daredevil until Shadowland ended. Never could get back into the Marvel U after they kept re-writing it, so excuse me for being slow on this one.
This was first pointed out by the homies at The Dakoit’s Comic Book Speculation.
Marvel has brought back Marvel Zombies to the Marvel Universe. This time they’ve brought back an old character that is only now getting noterity.
Elsa Bloodstone is the daughter of a Ulysses Bloodstone – a character who had a gem of power that let him live forever, he eventually became a mercenary who mainly hunts monsters – and Yes it is the same Bloodstone as Captain America Bloodstone First appearance of Crossbones. Eventually his daughter is given fragments of the stone. Right now the first appearance of Elsa Bloodstone – the new monster hunter in the Marvel Universe is gaining steam – two weeks ago this book sold for under $3 online, today it sells for upwards of $15+. This book is very much a dollar book but with Marvel’s new Female character focus, this book has a lot of potential down the road.
Bloodstone #1 (2001)
Another book that could become relevant based on how Marvel uses Elsa is the first appearances of Ulysses Bloodstone, her father.
Marvel Presents #1 Bloodstone (1975) – First appearance of Ulysses Bloodstone
So FCBD has come and gone, is the Attack on Titan the first american published non-reprint, AOT book? Probably, should have legs in the future.
All new X-Men #40 seems to be a solid $12 book. Its weird. But there has been another book to come out recently that I havn’t really noticed until recently.
This was point out on the CGC boards and probably on the Valiant Fan websites but the new Valiant series leading its way into the “big Valiant event” has gone to fourth printing and is steadily selling for upwards of $25! Divinity #1.
There has been a big push for Valiant titles recently with the new hollywood movie deal getting a lot of publicity, however, its what Valiant is publishing in the very near future that you should be keeping an eye on. Valiant is jumping into the future in their current comic time lines and showing the death’s of all of their major staple characters. There will also be a very limited series called The Book of Death that will only be available to certain retailers who jump through hoops and reach certain order minimums on other orders.
The next few months should be heavy valiant and the book you should be looking for right now (and holding onto!!!) is Divinity #1!
Yes there great ratio variants selling for crazy numbers but a lot of easy money will be able to be made on ANY first prints, including the blank variants!
