The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 03/06/2013

All-New X-Men #8 (Stuart Immonen X-Men 50th Anniversary Variant Cover)

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

Sorry if I seem a little out of it. Late night last night at the midnight sale for Archie #641, the Archie-meets-Glee issue. It was rough crowd last night at Legend Comics in Omaha. There was a lot of singing, dancing, smiling … and I hope you know this is a joke. Not the issue, Archie is meeting Glee this week, but that’s not all. Ultron is back with several variants to the new Age of Ultron event. The Ami-Comi girls of DC are back and sassy as ever. Image has two new stories about space gambling and, well, sex and Vikings clash with the Occult over at Oni. It’s gonna be a fun new comic day, kids.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, March 6, 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.

Savage Dragon #185, $3.99
Severed TP, $14.99

Sex #1, $2.99. With a title like that how could it not sell out? First-prints are already selling for $10 and Emerald City Comic-Con Exclusives are selling for upwards of $80. This new series from writer Joe Casey reportedly replaces action scenes with a different type of action. Obviously, it’s an adult title.

Snapshot #2 (of 4), $2.99

Walking Dead Michonne Special (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99

MARVEL COMICS

A+X #5 (David LaFuente Regular Cover), $3.99
A+X #5 (Mike Del Mundo Variant Cover), 1:50

Age of Apocalypse #13, $2.99. Prelude to the next X-event X-Termination. This one could be hot when retailers realize the under-ordered.

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Skottie Young Variant Cover)

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Rock-He Kim Variant Cover)

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Bryan Hitch Regular Cover), $3.99. Ultron is back but no one seems to be sure if it’s in regular Marvel continuity or not. Get ready for 10 issues in five weeks.

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Blank Variant Cover)

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Marko Djurdjevic Variant Cover)

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Mike Deodato Variant Cover)

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Skottie Young Variant Cover), ($5-$7). Retailers had to exceed their orders of Avengers #2 (2013) with this issue before they could order these variants as needed. All of these “baby” variants continue to sell well (I’m officially over the whole “baby-version” thing personally and have been told it’s because I have a cold black heart… which could be true).

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Rock-He Kim Variant Cover), 1:10. I’ve never heard of Rok-He Kim but this is a really nice-looking variant.

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Marko Djurdjevic Variant Cover), 1:50, ($20-$25). Don’t freak out. I don’t think Djurdevic came crawling back to Marvel after quitting with such fanfare back in 2011. This series has reportedly been in the works for five years, so I’m guessing he did this work a while ago. Still, this variant makes me miss him.

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Mike Deodato Variant Cover), 1:50, ($12-$15). Not a particularly impressive effort here by Deodato and there should be plenty out there.

Age of Ultron #1 (of 10)(Bryan Hitch Sketch Variant Cover), 1:100, ($30-$35). Again, there will be no shortage of these.

All-New X-Men #6 (Stuart Immonen 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99
All-New X-Men #8 (Stuart Immonen Regular Cover), $3.99

All-New X-Men #8 (Stuart Immonen X-Men 50th Anniversary Variant Cover), ($6-$8). I’m not sure whose art this is due to lack of credit but I’m guessing this is interior aritst David Marquez. Retailers had to exceed their order of All-New X #5 before they could order this variant as needed.

Avengers #3 (Jerome Opena 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99
Avengers #7, $3.99

Avengers Infinity TP, $14.99. Collecting AVENGERS INFINITY #1-4.
