The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 02/20/2013

by Matt Baum (02/20/13).

Happy #4 (of 4)(Cover B Frank Quitely)

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

It’s another huge new comics week this Wednesday, with a slew of new stuff hitting the shelves. If I had to pick one to watch, I’d say G.I. Joe #1 from IDW, but there’s plenty other fun stuff, too. Watch for a new Justice League of America and the return of Vibe (no kidding) from DC, more IDW comics than you can shake your wallet at, and a new Nova series at Marvel, along with the return of Alpha. Not to mention some of the best Marvel variants I’ve seen.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Feb. 20, including variant ratios, 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. 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 new format and remember to click on the links for previews. For a full list of comics shipping this week, click here.

Shadow Year One #1 (of 8)(Wilfredo Torres Hand Drawn Variant Cover), 1:100

Shadow Year One #1 (of 8)(Matt Wagner Hand Drawn Variant Cover), 1:200. I’m a big fan of these hand-drawn variants, but don’t expect to see too many. You can still find some of the hand-drawn variants for the ongoing Shadow #1 and they still seem to sell well, but not for the $200 some sellers will be asking. If you need any of these, you’re probably going to end up paying more than you’d like.

G.I. JOE #1 (Cover RI-B G.I. JOE Comics History), 1:10, ($6-$8)

G.I. JOE #1 (Cover RI-A Jamal Igle Wrap cover), 1:25, ($12-$15). Both of these are fun but Igle really surprised me here. He’s been good for a while, but this looks great. I’m not sure how many of these 1:25 variants you’ll find out there.

My Little Pony Micro-Series #1 (of 6)(Twilight Sparkle)(Cover B Amy Mebberson), $3.99. Because little girls and full-grown men everywhere demanded it, solo Pony comics for all… Strangely, this issue isn’t sold out yet, but I bet it goes pretty quickly when the re-orders come in.

Morbius The Living Vampire #2 (Marcos Martin Variant Cover)

Morbius The Living Vampire #2 (Marcos Martin Variant Cover), 1:50, ($25-$30). I love this variant but wouldn’t expect to see too many of them. Marvel is already including “Deep Discount” offers for this issue, so I’m assuming #2 was not ordered well.
