The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 05/30/2012

by Matt Baum (05/30/12).

Richie Rich #5 (James Silvani 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

It’s a light week due to the Memorial Day holiday, but comics are still hitting the shelves on Wednesday as usual. This week watch for the return of Mr. Freeze, Doctor Who to team up with Star Trek, and new series from the creator of Peter Panzerfaust.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, May 30, 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.

ABSTRACT STUDIOS

Rachel Rising #8, $3.99

ANTARCTIC PRESS

Airboy Deadeye #2 (of 5), $3.50
Last Zombie Neverland #4 (of 5), $3.99

APE ENTERTAINMENT

Richie Rich #5 (James Silvani Variant Cover), 1:10. Not sure why this issue is shipping a whole month earlier than the regular cover but it is a fun little Giant-Size X-Men #1 homage by Darkwing Duck artist James Silvani. Watch for a solid $10 price tag since most shops won’t want to take a chance on Richie.

ARCHAIA ENTERTAINMENT

Cow Boy A Boy And His Horse HC, $19.95

ARCHIE COMICS

Archie And Friends Double Digest #16, $3.99
Betty And Veronica Friends Double Digest #225, $3.99
Sonic The Hedgehog #237, $2.99

AVATAR PRESS

Crossed Badlands #3 (Jacen Burrows Auxiliary Edition)

Crossed Badlands #3 (Jacen Burrows Auxiliary Edition), $3.99. Limited to 1,500 copies and sold out. Some of these “auxiliary” editions (which I’m pretty sure is just another term for second printing) are selling well, with early editions from the first series selling for upward of $50. Later editions from last two Crossed minis are selling for $12-$15.

Ferals #3 (Gabriel Andrade Auxiliary Edition), $3.99. Limited to 1,250 copies.
Stitched #4 (Mike Wolfer Auxiliary Edition), $3.99. Limited to 1,000 copies.

Exile Planet Of The Apes #3 (of 4)(Cover A Gabriel Hardman), $3.99
Exile Planet Of The Apes #3 (of 4)(Cover B Declan Shalvey), $3.99

Crossed Badlands #3 (Jacen Burrows Auxiliary Edition)

Exile Planet Of The Apes #3 (of 4)(Cover C Gabriel Hardman), 1:15. These Hardman sketch variants have been pre-selling very well on eBay so I’m guessing they’re tough to find. Hardman is an up-and-coming talent and I expect to see a lot more of his name this year. If he does blow up at Marvel, he was recently penciling Secret Avengers, I’d expect these early variants to be a hot commodity. Watch for an $8-$10 price tag.

Irredeemable Volume 9 TP, $16.99
Rich Johnston’s Iron Muslim #1 (Josh Covey 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99
Rinse TP, $14.99

COMIC SHOP NEWS

Comic Shop News #1302. This should always be free. If it’s not, find a new comic shop.

DARK HORSE COMICS

Angel And Faith #10 (Rebekah Isaacs Variant Cover), $2.99
Angel And Faith #10 (Steve Morris Regular Cover), $2.99
Avatar The Last Airbender Volume 2 The Promise Part 2 TP, $10.99
B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Transformation Of J. H. O’Donnell (One Shot)(Max Fiumara Regular Cover), $3.50. Penciled by the vastly underrated Max Fiumara. See his Four Eyes series from Image (2008) to see why I love this guy.

B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Transformation Of J. H. O’Donnell (One Shot)(Mike Mignola Variant Cover)

B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Transformation Of J. H. O’Donnell (One Shot)(Mike Mignola Variant Cover), 1:5. This is another in the series of Mignola’s “Year of Monsters” variants, this time featuring Hellboy hunting Dracula. Love it! You might be able to score this one for cover price but don’t expect it to stay that low for long.

Baltimore The Curse Bells Volume 2 HC, $24.99
Channel Zero The Complete Collection TP, $19.99
Empowered Volume 7 TP, $16.99
Mass Effect Homeworlds #2 (Anthony Palumbo Regular Cover), $3.50

Mass Effect Homeworlds #2 (Mike Hawthorne Variant Cover)

Mass Effect Homeworlds #2 (Mike Hawthorne Variant Cover), 1:5. This is another nice-looking Hawthorne variant. Nobody seemed to much care for the first variant but this one is already pre-selling for $12. I guess Tali is just cooler than James Vega. This is another one you might be able to score for cover price.

Star Wars Blood Ties Boba Fett Is Dead #2 (of 4), $3.50
Star Wars Knight Errant Volume 2 Deluge TP, $18.99

DC COMICS

American Vampire #27, $2.99

Batman Beyond Unlimited #4, $3.99
Batman Death By Design HC (Deluxe Edition), $24.9(
Batman Prey TP, $24.99

DC Comics Presents Superman Supergirl #1, $7.99. Reprints: SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19, SUPERMAN #176, SUPERGIRL #1, DC INFINITE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1 and DCU HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1, all featuring the art of Ian Churchill. Seeing as this Supergirl’s history has been written out of continuity I’m not sure why we’re getting this now.

DC Nation #1 (One Shot), $4.99. Follows the DC animated shows on Cartoon Network Saturday mornings.
Diablo #4 (of 5), $2.99
Fables Deluxe Edition Volume 5 HC, $29.99
Green Arrow Volume 1 The Midas Touch TP, $14.99
New Deadwardians #3 (of 8), $2.99

Ravagers #1 (Ian Churchill Regular Cover), $2.99. New series that spins out of the Legion Lost, Teen Titans “The Culling” storyline. Introduces Warblade (formerly of the WildCATS in the Wildstorm U) into the DCU.

Ravagers #1 (Brett Booth & Norm Rapmund Variant Cover)

Ravagers #1 (Brett Booth & Norm Rapmund Variant Cover), 1:25. For a title that has a very ’90s Wildstorm-vibe going for it, this is a perfectly ’90s variant from two ’90s Wildstorm veterans. Watch for a $10-$13 cover price.

Starman Omnibus Volume 1 TP, $29.99
Superman Family Adventures #1, $2.99. New all ages series by Art Baltazar. Guaranteed fun!
Wonder Woman Volume 1 Blood HC, $22.99
Young Justice #16, $2.99

Queen Sonja #29 (Tommy Patterson Regular Cover), $3.99

Spider #1 (John Cassaday 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99. First-printings of Spider #1 aren’t doing much yet, which is too bad because it was a great read. But I’m guessing this one is still picking up steam. If you can find a copy of #1 pick it up.

Ghostbusters #9 (Cover RIA Mike Henderson)

Ghostbusters #9 (Cover A Dan Schoening), $3.99. “Haunted America” storyline begins.
Ghostbusters #9 (Cover B Tristan Jones), $3.99
Ghostbusters #9 (Cover RIA Mike Henderson), 1:10. Wraparound variant.

Ghostbusters #9 (Cover RIB Tristan Jones)

Ghostbusters #9 (Cover RIB Tristan Jones), 1:50. Cover features a postcard from the town of the comic shops that qualified for this variant. Had to be ordered before FOC 4/23/12. Jones did a great job on these and has been posting them on his Tumblr as he cranks them out. Unlike other comic shop variants, these don’t have the name of the shop on the cover, just the city they’re in. This could drum up some more interest than usual and they were one copy per store, so prepare to see them on eBay for dumb prices.

Hawken #4 (of 6)(Cover A Tim Truman), $3.99
Hawken #4 (of 6)(Cover RI Tim Truman), 1:10
John Byrne’s Next Men Aftermath #43 (Cover A John Byrne), $3.99
John Byrne’s Next Men Aftermath #43 (Cover RI John Byrne), 1:10
Monocyte #4 (of 4)(Cover A Menton J. Matthews III), $3.99
Monocyte #4 (of 4)(Cover B David Stoupakis), $3.99
Monocyte #4 (of 4)(Cover RI Phil Hale), 1:10
Rocketeer Adventures 2 #3 (of 4)(Cover A Darwyn Cooke), $3.99
Rocketeer Adventures 2 #3 (of 4)(Cover B Dave Stevens), $3.99
Rocketeer Adventures 2 #3 (of 4)(Cover RI Darwyn Cooke), 1:10
Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow #13 (Cover A Robert Atkins), $3.99

Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow #13 (Cover B Robert Atkins), $3.99. Previously titled Snake Eyes. “Serpent Shadows” storyline begins. It’s hard to know if the retitling will boost sales on this comic or just confuse readers. Snake Eyes #12 fell just outside of April’s Top 300 (202) shipping just 8,164. The new storyline has the two characters revisiting their ninja roots but I don’t see it boosting sales too much.

Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow #13 (Cover RIA Steve Ellis)

Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow #13 (Cover RIA Steve Ellis), 1:10. Color variant featuring both characters. Watch for a $5-$7 price tag.

Snake Eyes And Storm Shadow #13 (Cover RIB Steve Ellis), 1:25. Sketch version of 1:10 variant. Watch for a $10-$15 price tag.

Star Trek #9 (Cover A Tim Bradstreet), $3.99
Star Trek #9 (Cover B Joe Phillips), $3.99.
Star Trek #9 (Cover RIA Tim Bradstreet), 1:10
Star Trek #9 (Cover RIB Photo), 1:20
Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover A Woodward), $3.99

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover RIA Photo)

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover B David Messina)

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover RIB Joe Corroney)

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover B David Messina), $3.99. IDW seems to have figured it out. Stick any Star Trek crew on a weird team-up mini-series and, boom, it’s an instant sell out. It happened with the Star Trek Legion crossover and it happened again here. Already #1 is selling for $6 online and looks to be going up. It’s hard to believe but if there’s a big winner for hot book of the week, this is it.

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover RIA Photo), 1:10. Wraparound variant.

Star Trek The Next Generation Doctor Who Assimilation2 #1 (Cover RIB Joe Corroney),1:25. The variants for this one also seem to be going crazy with sets of the two selling for almost $70. Good luck finding these.

Stephen King And Joe Hill’s Road Rage #4 (of 4)(Cover A Rafa Garres), $3.99
Stephen King And Joe Hill’s Road Rage #4 (of 4)(Cover RI Rafa Garres), AR
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #10 (Cover A Dan Duncan), $3.99
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #10 (Cover B Kevin Eastman), $3.99
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #10 (Cover RI Tyler Walpole), AR
Transformers Robots In Disguise #5 (Cover A Andrew Griffith), $3.99
Transformers Robots In Disguise #5 (Cover B Casey Coller), $3.99
Transformers Robots In Disguise #5 (Cover RI Marcelo Matere), AR
Zombies The Chilling Archives Of Horror Comics HC, $24.99
Zombies Vs. Robots Annual 2012, $7.99

IMAGE COMICS

America’s Got Powers #2 (of 6), $2.99. Sold out! Issue #1 got great critical buzz (I gave it a stellar review) and sold very well, leaving retailers upping their orders of issue #2. So much so the first-printings are already gone. Watch this one and expect it to go up in price fast.

Bloodstrike #28, $2.99
Bomb Queen VII Queen’s World #4 (of 4), $3.50
Darkness Compendium Volume 2 HC, $99.99
Elephantmen Volume 0 Armed Forces TP, $24.99

Grim Leaper #1 (of 4), $3.50. New series from Peter Panzerfaust writer Kutis Weibe. This one hasn’t sold out yet but it’s a new series from Image so it wouldn’t surprise me if the first-printings are gone by Friday.

Hack Slash Omnibus Volume 4 TP, $34.99
Li’l Depressed Boy #11, $2.99
Magdalena #12, $3.99

Mind The Gap #1 (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99. First-printings of Gap #1 started out very strong, selling for $15 the week it hit. Since then things have cooled down a bit and prices are back to cover. I still think this title is going to get very hot as the series continues and expect prices on #1 to slowly crawl back up in the months to come.

Peter Panzerfaust #4, $3.50
Spawn Compendium Volume 1 TP, $59.99
Walking Dead #98, $2.99

KODANSHA COMICS

Genshiken Omnibus Volume 1 TP, $19.99

Astonishing X-Men #49 (Dustin Weaver 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99
Avengers Vs. X-Men #1 (of 12)(Jim Cheung 3rd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99

Avengers Vs. X-Men #2 (of 12)(Jim Cheung 3rd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99. AvX continues to sell out and get new printings but the first-printings still aren’t doing much of anything. There’re just too many copies out there.

Avenging Spider-Man #6 (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99
Captain America And Bucky Old Wounds HC (Premiere Edition), $19.99
Daredevil #11 (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99
Daredevil By Ed Brubaker And Michael Lark Ultimate Collection Volume 2 TP, $29.99
FF #18, $2.99
Hulk Smash Avengers #5 (of 5), $2.99
Incredible Hulk #8 (Michael Komarck Regular Cover), $3.99

Incredible Hulk #8 (Ed McGuinness Amazing Spider-Man 50th Anniversary Cover)

Incredible Hulk #8 (Ed McGuinness Amazing Spider-Man 50th Anniversary Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of Incredible Hulk #5 by 125-percent and they could order as many variants as needed. Not a bad variant, but McGuinness is capable of far better. Of course, these ordering rules make pricing very difficult.

Kick-Ass 2 HC (Premiere Edition), $24.99
Marvel Firsts The 1970s Volume 3 TP, $29.99
Marvel Previews #106 (June 2012 For Products On-Sale August 2012), $1.25. Again, this should be free if you maintain a pull-file.

  1. Eric says:

    So far I have avoided everything AvX, except for a few titles I pick up every month. I am betting with all this ‘exceed your order from last issue’ on each issue there will probably be nothing that cant be gotten out of a dollar box at the Comic-Con 2013… possibly even starting this July.

    I am pretty much giving up on my hope of seeing Uncle Scrooge comics again as Marvel doesnt seem interested in putting out something that wont sell inside the top 75. Of course if they put a big name on it I bet it could.

    • Matt Baum says:

      Couldn’t agree more Eric. While the story has been solid there’s definitely more copies out there than there is demand. As far Uncle Scrooge goes, I heard rumblings of Marvel launching a whole Disney line of comics and I would be shocked if there wasn’t a Carl Barks inspired Scrooge title. I’ll keep you posted.
