New Comics Roundup

Time once again to pen to paper and do your homework. For some of us new comic day isn’t just a hobby, it’s a darn job. But fear not, you’ve got an even bigger nerd than you in me to do the research and tell you not only what’s coming out. but what’s worth your hard earned dollar. This week get ready for a new Image series from hit maker Mark Millar, steampunk pirates vs Ninjas at Dark Horse, more interstellar madness from Marvel, and the coming of the Being at Zenescope. See you guys at the comic shop.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, April 24, 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.

WorthPoint—Discover Your Hidden Wealth

  • Even though I have grown up, I always love the comic books

  • I have a huge online auction going on with over 19,000 comic books. Any pointers on where I could find people who are interested in something like that?

    • It really depends where your auction is. If it’s Ebay you certainly want to mention as many highlights of the collection as possible. For instance, name some of the more popular titles and how long the runs are (i.e. Amazing Spider-Man 1-200). Just make sure you’re as descriptive as possible and they will come. There’s also shops you can talk to that buy in masse but remember, they have to buy very low to make their money back.

  • Phil

    Where do the Phantom Variants and the shop specific variants fit into this picture, and how come you never mention them? I’ve seen a great Phantom variant of Jupiter’s Legacy #1 as well as a Forbidden Planet and Midtown Comics exclusive variants that look incredible. Are these worth much?
