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.

DC Rebirth

A lot of crazy stuff happening this week so lets get right to it.

This week Henchgirl has been on fire – with the Scout Comics issue #1 selling for $70 to $90 online. Its not even the first appearance of Henchgirl and is just old material reprinted! Its crazy!

The big news though (as covered by Bleedingcool and CHU) is the leaking of this week’s issue of Rebirth #1, the starting of DC’s new universe (or whatever they’re going for at the moment). Someone (apparently in the press) received a copy and started revealing spoilers of the book on Reddit. This person has since been banned on Reddit, however, it is a very genuine post.

So what did we learn? Wally West is back but that has been hinted at for months. The big news is the Watchmen are now members of the DCU. What’s more is that Dr. Manhattan created the DC Universe. That finger on the cover of Rebirth #1? That’s a swipe at Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam with Dr. Manhattan. This also means that Alan Moore created the DC Universe.

Speculation wise: Watchmen #1‘s are selling like no tomorrow on ebay but there are a few other books to be looking for.

Watchmen #12 – In this book Dr. Manhattan makes a very poignant exit scene. Suggesting an early appearance of the NEW DC Universe.

Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan #4 – Dr. Manhattan creates his first universe. This book is already selling for $30 to $35 – with no combo-pack variants available for sale online since the news. This book seems to have great quick flip potential as it’s currently being pinned as the origin of the DC Rebirth Universe.

The last book that you should be looking for which is already selling for big bucks (five confirmed sales of CGC 9.8 copies selling above $400 – when GPA is $300) is DC Spotlight #1. This is the first appearance of both Frank Miller’s Dark Night AND the Watchmen. Raw copies have been selling for $40 to $80 in ranging conditions. This book has great potential for growth as Watchmen begins to be built into the DCU.
