The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 01/08/2014

by Matt Baum (01/08/14).

Action Comics #27 (Scribblenauts Unmasked Variant), 1:20, ($8-$10)

The Comic Speculator is a blog written by WorthPoint Comic Book “Worthologist” Matt Baum that takes a look at each week’s hot new comics, back issues and the comic market place in general. Prices discussed here are taken from Comicspriceguide.com (CPG) and current online auction sales. Sales numbers and rankings are courtesy of ICV2.com. Lists of new comics are courtesy of Previewsworld.com and Comiclist.com. Make sure and click on the links to learn more about the titles and creators discussed here. If you want to hear what this nerd sounds like you can catch me on my podcast, the Two-Headed Nerd Comicast, where my friend Joe and I discuss the latest comic news, review some new comics, and answer your questions.

New Comics Roundup

The light holiday weeks are over and we’re back to FULL-ON-NEW-COMIC-DAY-LUNACY. There’re literally piles of stuff hitting the new shelves this week. Watch for a double-sized Batman and the invasion of the Scribblenauts at DC, a slew of new NOW comics at Marvel, the return of Minimum Wage at Image and Zenescope has a new B.A.R. Maid! It’s back to business nerds!

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Jan. 8, including variant ratios, previews (click on the links), storyline and creator notes and a little speculation on what could be hard to find in the future. The ratios listed after titles (i.e. 1:10) represent how many issues of a regular cover retailers had to order to get the variant. The prices in parenthesizes after variant listings (i.e. $10-$15), are my suggested price points, based on ordering ratio and popularity, that you should look for if buying. Issues that are part of a crossover or storyline have an abbreviated title in parenthesis after the title comic (i.e. AvX). Be sure to let me know what you think of the format and remember to click on the links for previews. To find a comic shop near you, click here.

  1. Eric Miller says:

    so whats your opinion on Sex Criminals 1 4th print? it seems to be an instant hit selling for over $20 in ebay, but with a 5th print (2nd print of the 4th print) coming that looks exactly the same, do you think that this will rob the original of its uniqueness and cause a huge devaluation of the 4th print?

    • Matt Baum Matt Baum says:

      It’s a great cover, but yeah. I’m guessing the 5th print will knock that $20 price down quite a bit. A year from now you’ll probably be able to find it for cover price. If you need this one I’d order the 5th print while you still can.
