Week in Review: May 19

This week there are two books to be looking for.

A book that has seen a lot of interesting this week is Champions #19. Champions #19 features the first appearance of Snowguard, a new female teenage Superhero. While most online marketplaces like Midtown Comics and Mycomicshop are sold out,  this book has been selling for $10+ on ebay.

Another book that came out this week that has been selling well is the new Aftershock Comic, A Walk Through Hell. This is a new Garth Ennis series and the A Walk Through Hell #1 Cover B, all black variant, has been selling for $10 to $15 online.

A few loose ends

Another book to look for is Image’s new series Infidel #1. This book started selling well after news came out that Infidel was being made into a movie.Infidel #1 has been selling for $10 plus.

Another image series that has been seeing some heat is Isola #1. This book has not had any media deals announced but both covers of this book have been selling for $8 to $12.

As interest grows for Image’s new series Magic Order it is worth noting the first appearance of this series is the very hard to find Magic Order ashcan. The Magic Order #1 (Out June 13 2018) is the first issue to the new Mark Millar Netflix book – the first netflix imprint comic that was given out through a lottery system at the 2018 C2E2 Comic Convention.

I recently started a Instagram account where I am going to try to post daily comic speculation updates. Be sure to check it out.

Word?!?! Oblivion Song

Oblivion Song is a new on-going series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Skybound Comics. Any time Robert Kirkman has a new series out there is usually a lot of hype behind it, the last time Kirkman released a new on-going series, Thief of Thieves, first prints sold out at the distributor level and the book was quickly “optioned” by AMC studios.  Keeping all of this in mind, the new Kirkman series Oblivion Song is one to be thinking about. The first issue of the series is released in March.

This week Skybound sent retailers a trade paperback edition of Oblivion Song. This trade features the first four issues of the Oblivion Song series in print. This is so Skybound can increase interest in the series and get retailers to increase their orders. This trade paperback was first given out at New York Comic Con’s Skybound retailer conference making the trade paperback the first appearance of the series. I did read the trade paperback a few months ago and I highly recommend this series. Now is the time to be asking your local comic book store what they are doing with there copy. If Oblivion Song blows up like every other creator owned Robert Kirkman series, this is a book you will want to be holding on to long term.

One other thing to note, on release there will be a limited to 1000 deluxe collectors edition of Oblivion Song, this comes with a statue and a foil edition comic – this item will be allocated and will sell out. Now is a good time to be putting preorders in for this item.

It is also worth noting that the new image comic, Ice Cream Man #1, which was released this week has steadily been selling for $10+ online. This is an anthology book, where each issue is supposed to be a one-shot, so new readers can jump on at any point.

Week in Review April 25

I’m going to do a post about the things I missed last week tomorrow, so be on the look out for that.

At C2E2 Over the weekend it was announced that Tim Seeley and Mike Norton’s Revival is being adapted into a film by Shattlerglass Films. A Teaser was shown. As a result Revival #1s have started to sell again! Two things to keep note of, the Revival #1 Sketch edition only has 500 copies and is a great book to be looking for and holding on to, The first appearance of Revival is Image 2012 Free Comic Book Day Edition book.

 

Skybound / Image Comics released THREE retailer appreciation books this week that you should be asking your retailer about. The first is the Kill the Minotaur Ashcan. This is a one per store ashcan and is the first published appearance of this series and characters, its a very large book that reprints the entire issue in black and white in the ashcan size.

The other two books Image released are reprints of Redneck #1, one is the Black and White Cover A with Silver Foil Logo and the other is a Cover A with Gold Foil logo. While these books together have sold online in presale for up to $250, these books are currently selling for $40 each. Since these books are given to every store with a diamond account that ordered the book there will be a lot of copies out there this week.

If you want to speculate on Redneck the book you should be buying is the ashcan. This book came out before issue #1 and is the TRUE first appearance of the series and characters – this book can be purchased on ebay for $40 to $50, which is a steal when you consider the high price sales of the gold and silver foil variants.

Another book to be on the lookout for tomorrow is ‘Namwolf #1. Springing from the success of Hillbilly, ‘Namwolf is another series published by Eric Powell’s Albatross Legacy Books, this book has two covers and both covers have multiple sales above cover. There is no ratio variant just a cover A and B.
