    OK, I don’t want to brag here folks but it seems as if Matt has been on a roll lately. Last week I went three-for-three with all of my picks of the week selling out. According to Comicbookresources.com Batman #676, Guardians #1 and Cap Britain #1 all sold out before the weekend hit and Cap #1 is already selling for upwards of $5.00 online.
