This week sees the release of X-men Gold #30 – I am about to spoil this book so consider this a spoiler warning! This book was advertised as a Kitty Pryde / Colossus wedding issue but inside you’ll find that Kitty Pryde leaves Colossus at the altar and in a complete plot twist Gambit and Rouge end up getting married. The X-Men Gold #30 Secret J. Scott Campbell polybag variant is the only cover to show Gambit and Rouge getting married. This is a $4.99 book that has been selling for $8 to $10 online. It is very possible this book will be considered the first appearance of Mr. and Mrs. X – the new Gambit / Rouge series announced earlier today.
Another book to look for this week is the Josh Middleton cover B of Aquaman #37. This book has sold out at the retailer distributor level and has been selling for $8 to $10 online.
The last book to look for came out last week, Oblivion Song #4 Frog Variant. Skybound released a chase variant for Oblivion Song #4 that was inserted randomly into retailers orders – this variant has a frog on the cover. The Oblivion Song #4 frog variant has been selling steadily online for $10.
When Skybound Comics announced Oblivion Song #1 we started to see speculation that we might see a pink signature chase variant. Skybound has done this twice previously with Walking Dead #171 and Redneck #6 and both of these were done by Oblivion Song artist Lorenzo De Felici. This week pink signature copies of Oblivion Song started popping up online in facebook selling groups and on ebay. Right now there are two copies on ebay, one is $250 Buy it now and the other is $200 buy it now.
Where did these come from?
Skybound Comics offered the pink signature variant as a buying incentive at their booth last weekend at the Wondercon Comic Convention. Anyone that purchased items at the Skybound booth above $25 received a copy of this variant. Skybound will be set up at several conventions over the next few months, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to check to see if they are still offering copies.
Skybound Comics will be set up at C2E2 and SDCC just to name two.
