This week sees the release of Moon Girl #29. This book has already sold out at diamond and has been selling online for up to $10. Not a bad book to be looking for and picking up.

WORD?! DC SPOILERAGE?

Last January there were a lot of DC rumors posted as facts on Reddit by a user claiming they had seen the new Batman / Superman film. I spoke about it here. Some of the rumors proved to be true while others proved to be false. Batman / Superman was the jump off point for the Justice League film. Jason Mamoa did appear in the film as did the Flash in costume. Some things didn’t prove to be true like Lex Luther going bald due to kryptonite poisoning – but most of the claims on the Reddit post proved to be true.

This week a new post showed up on Reddit claiming to have “Future of the DC universe leak” filled with spoilers. While these claims really have no basis or proof there could be some truth to them, or they could just be smoke in the air. Either way, here are the parts of the leak that might hold the most credibility.

The Green Lantern Corps (to be released in 2020) is going to be based on the Green Lantern Sinestro Corps War story line from 2007. Guy Gardener, John Stewart, and Hal Jordan will be appearing in this film. Aside from the first appearances the books to be buying now are the first appearance of the Sinestro Corps War- Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special #1 from August of 2007 Green Lantern Volume 4 #21 from September of 2007. Both of these are key books in the Sinestro Wars storyline.

The next tidbit to come out involves Deathstroke – which coincides with the clip from the new Batman film that Ben Affleck recently released online. There will not be a Deathstroke solo movie, however, he will be appearing in both the Batman and Justice League films as an antagonist to Batman. This has resulted in a bump of interest in the new 52 Deathstroke #1 1:25 Variant cover, the first appearance of Deathstroke – New Teen Titans #2 and the very undervalued New Teen Titans #10 (the second appearance of Deathstroke). While all three of these are selling well you can probably still find New Teen Titans #10 in the wild and at a good price.

All the points from the Reddit Future of the DC Universe leak can be found here.

Word?! 451 Media – Book to watch for this week Exmortis #1

This was pointed out to me by Flunky Rapper in the comment Section. 451 Media fresh off the release of Sunflower #1 and Self Storage #1 have a new #1 series coming out this week and its already sold out at the distributer (Diamond) level and selling in the $10 range. The book is a little different then Sunflower or Self Storage in that it deals with Nazis. Both Sunflower and Self Storage have dropped in selling prices from there prevalent $15 places back to a $7 to $8 sale price range, this will most likely be the same situation with this new book so please keep that in mind.

Exmortis #1 sees its release this week and is a book to be picking up for the quick flip.

Screen shot 2015-11-02 at 4.12.19 PM
Another 451 Media book that sees its release this month is Six #1. This book comes from one of the script writers of the hit HBO drama The Wire, George Pelecanos and is his first comic book series. Like the perviously stated 451 media books, this book already has peak sales of $10 on ebay. With a release date of November 18, this is another book to be looking for and thinking about.

Screen shot 2015-11-02 at 4.12.42 PM
There is a lot of talk about Barnes and Nobel and Hastings Comics both getting all 451 media books in large quantities in there stores – also there are rumblings that they have direct barcode editions that could be worth more money down the line if these books end up having a longer shelf life.

The Bleeding Cool Effect: Misty Knight

Screen shot 2015-04-08 at 1.35.34 AM

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.

IMG_0004

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.

Hollywood Daze: Summer Round Up/ Part 1

Screen shot 2015-06-15 at 2.14.33 PM

Here are the summer movie updates!

First off is the hot off the presses Latino Review rumours that the Spider-Man “Iron Spider” suit would be an important part of the Captain America Civil War film plot line, with the film already releasing posters featuring main marvel characters facing off it wouldn’t be that big of a surprise for Spider-Man to have an important role in the film. So the book to look for is the first appearance of the Iron Spider. Amazing Spider-Man #529 – first appearance of the Iron Spider Suit.

Amazing_Spider-Man_Vol_1_529
Fox has announced the continuation of the X-Files franchise with the new season starting in January 2016. This with the relaunch of the comic book series with IDW has brought an increased interest back to the original Topps Comics X-Files series. The X-Files #1 first print Topps publication has been selling for upwards of $30 to $50. For a book that constantly sold for $10 to $20 in high grade condition this is great news. There are still findable copies in the wild for cover. This book has a lot of potential to explode come the series relaunch in January.

Screen shot 2015-08-31 at 4.38.07 PM
There has been a lot of casting news involving the CW and Agents of Shield TV-Shows. One more recent piece of news is the casting of the character Lash from the marvel universe into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Lash is a relativly newly developed character first being introduced in Inhuman #1 from 2014. Since this is a Marvel Now title with huge print runs the variants are the books to look for.

Another character meeting its TV-premier is Jesse Quick, being introduced in the Flash TV-Series new season. Jesse Quick previously Jesse Chambers first appears as Jesse Quick in Justice Society of America #1 – however her first appearance that has been largly ignored as Jesse Chambers the concept behind the character is Justice League Europe #34 – both of these books are ones to look for.

Screen shot 2015-08-31 at 4.42.20 PM
Continued in another post! Where I will talk about Video Game Movies and the important comic counterparts as well as other TV Show Character castings!

Week in Review August 19 – Back on Track

Back from a longer then usual hiatus is my Week in Review for August 19.

This week sees the release of Black Mask’s highest page number first issue with 64 pages and a 6.99 price tag. This book and its three covers are already selling for $10 to $15 on ebay. This is not a book to be sleeping on. Cover B seems to have the most potential.

Screen shot 2015-08-19 at 3.37.27 AM
Another book that most retailers received today was the Invader Zim Retailer Thank You #1 (Possibly regarded as the RRP) featuring a cover by Avatar the Last Air-Bender co-creator Bryan Konietzko – a similar cover with a SDCC logo is also floating out there however this book is limited to 500 copies and was sent directly from Boom to retailers. Your LCS should have a copy. This book is selling for $30 to $60 and is a book to be looking for.

Screen shot 2015-08-19 at 3.21.29 AM

Big News came out this week about Fantagraphics first on-going series Hip Hop Family Tree (also debuting this week) from creator Ed Piskors facebook account.
Screen shot 2015-08-19 at 3.29.47 AMI’ve hinted at the importance of this book before but now it has been confirmed by Ed Piskor that he has sold the right of the Hip Hop family tree in a development deal. The book to look for is the 2014 Hip Hop Family Tree FCBD Fantagraphics comic. This book sells on ebay for around $15 in near mint condition – it is the first appearance of Hip Hop family tree being published before the Hip Hop Family Tree Volume One debut. If this TV happens, this book will explode.

Coming up Soon: The first action figure variant; its importance / sleeper status, more speculation, less hesitation.

WEEK IN REVIEW July 30 / Post 300

This is my 300th post. Yay! I’ve been lacking in the posts recently but I’m still doing at least one post a week!

Screen shot 2015-07-31 at 12.04.14 AM

Not a whole lot has been happening in the last few weeks comic speculation wise, however, in the last few days some really good news came out about Paul Pope’s creator owned series Battling Boy. Published by first second, Battling Boy was first designed as being a comic book but production company interest before the book was even completed resulting in Paul Pope inking a film deal.

Screen shot 2015-07-31 at 12.09.10 AM

This week only a few weeks after the release of the second volume of Battling Boy, The Rise of Aurora West, a director has been  named for the Battling Boy film produced by Plan B Entertainment. This means that a lot of money and production hours are being spent on this project. The book to be looking for is the first appearance of Battling Boy – The Death of Haggard West #1. Published as a 32-page comic this prelude to the first Battling Boy Graphic Novel was available in limited quantities upon release and sold for upwards of $10 to $15 when it came out .The book has recently cooled off, but with production revving up on the Battling Boy project, this is a book to be looking for and holding on to.

Also
Titan publishing comes out with new titles that keep selling out, going to second printings where the first print becomes a collector item. This has been a common theme in the past few months in the order Marvel / DC / Image Comics retailer environment, where new smaller publishing companies don’t get as much ordering attention.

Screen shot 2015-07-31 at 12.11.02 AM

This is the second time Titan comics has published a Tank Girl comics and this is the second time the issue has sold out and started heating up on ebay. 21st Century Tank Girl is a clear winner with issue #1 already going into a third printing with first printings hitting up to $20! With issue #2 – a risque pin up style cover selling for $10+. Issue #3 hasn’t even come out yet and this book is pure speculator gold.
