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

There’s all kinds of new fun this week on the comic stands including; The Death of Clark Kent, a gay Green Lantern, more new Sci-Fi from Boom and a big birthday for Spawn. Oh, and did I forget to mention the Watchmen are back?

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

Extermination #1 (Cover B Trevor Hairsine), $1. 
1:3
Extermination #1 (Cover C Michael Gaydos), $1. 
1:3

Extermination #1 (Cover D James Harren), $1. 1:10. Sold out. New sci-fi series about an alien invasion that forces heroes and villains to team up. Sold out quickly, but that’s probably due to the $1 price tag.

Extermination #1 (Cover E Frazier Irving), 1:15
Extermination #1 (Cover F James Harren Sketch), 1:25
Extermination #1 (Cover G Trevor Hairsine Sketch), 1:50

Extermination #1 (Cover H John Cassaday sketch 9.8 CGC), 1:100. All of these should be readily available, including the 1:100. CGC isn’t listing this one in its census yet but if it treats it like Higher Earth, there should be 150 graded copies, and that’s a lot of copies in 9.8 condition. Don’t pay more than $50.

Fanboys Vs. Zombies #3 (Cover A Humberto Ramos), $3.99

Garfield #2 (Cover A Gary Barker), $3.99

Garfield #2 (Cover B Jim Davis 1st Appearance of Odie), 1:20. Again, this one should be tough to find. The #1 1st appearance of Garfield variant is currently selling for $30 and there aren’t many out there. Watch for a $15-$20 price tag.

DC COMICS

Action Comics #10 (Rags Morales Regular Cover)

Action Comics #10 (Bryan Hitch Variant Cover)

Action Comics #10 (Rags Morales Regular Cover), $3.99. Begins a new three-part storyline featuring new villain Nimrod.
Action Comics #10 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. Comes with Free Digital Download Code

Action Comics #10 (Bryan Hitch Variant Cover). Order-able based on the lowest ordered DC Relaunch #10 issue shipping this week. Don’t pay more than cover for this one. It’s a great looking variant but there should be plenty out there.

Action Comics #10 (Gene Ha Black & White Variant Cover), 1:100
Animal Man #10, $2.99. Extinction is Forever part 2, Justice League Dark crossover.
Batman Detective Comics Volume 1 Faces Of Death HC, $22.99
Batwing #10, $2.99

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Michael Golden Variant Cover)

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Jim Lee Variant Cover)

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Darwyn Cooke Regular Cover), $3.99. This is the big story this week. Nerds will be on both sides of the digital picket lines fighting for and against Before Watchmen. Of course, DC is hoping this translates to serious sales and it probably will. As of now, it’s still in stock and I’m betting DC printed very high so I wouldn’t expect a sellout until next week.

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. Free digital download code.

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Michael Golden Variant Cover), 1:25. There should be plenty of the Golden variants to go around with most shops ordering heavy here. It’s a great-looking variant and probably the one I’ll grab. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag.

Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 (of 6)(Jim Lee Variant Cover), 1:200. Again, retailers are asking for $175-and-up, but most pre-sales are closer to the $100 mark, which is a good price to aim for here.

Detective Comics #10 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. Free digital download code.
Detective Comics #10 (Tony S. Daniel Regular Cover), $3.99
Detective Comics #10 (Tony S. Daniel Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25
Dial H #2, $2.99
DMZ Volume 12 The Five Nations Of New York TP, $14.99

Earth 2 #2 (Ivan Reis & Joe Prado Regular Cover)

Earth 2 #2 (Ivan Reis & Joe Prado Regular Cover), $2.99. Sold out. This is the issue that Alan Scott (the Golden Age Green Lantern) reveals he’s gay. The story got a lot of buzz last week but I’m not convinced it translates into instant high prices. Had Batman been gay, then yeah, all bets were off on how high that issue would be going for. Alan Scott, on the other hand, is maybe the fourth- or fifth-most popular Green Lantern and not a household name. Retailers certainly upped their orders with the news, pushing the title to sell-out status before shipping but I’m betting there’s plenty of copies to meet the demand.

Earth 2 #2 (Ivan Reis & Joe Prado Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25
Fairest #4, $2.99
G.I. Combat #2, $3.99
Green Arrow #10, $2.99
Green Lantern Corps Revolt Of Alpha Lanterns TP, $14.99
I Zombie #26, $2.99

Justice League #1 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams 8th Printing Variant Cover)

Justice League #1 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams 8th Printing Variant Cover), $3.99. The printings just seem to keep coming here and the price of all the printings seems to be going up. Currently, first prints are selling for north of $12 and later printings (6th-7th prints) are selling for $6 and up. As long as nerds keep buying them I guess we’ll keep getting new printings.

Justice League International #10, $2.99. Continued from Firestorm #9.
Looney Tunes #207, $2.99
Night Force #4 (of 6), $2.99
Red Lanterns #10, $2.99. Continued from Stormwatch #9
Red Lanterns Volume 1 Blood And Rage TP, $14.99
Scooby-Doo Where Are You #22, $2.99
Smallville Season 11 #2, $3.99
Stormwatch #10, $2.99. New art team Ignacio Calero, Sean Parsons.

Swamp Thing #10

Swamp Thing #10, $2.99. Return of Swamp Things Nemesis Anton Arcane. It’s hard to know if this issue will gain any traction from Arcane’s return or not. I’m excited, but sales aren’t huge on Swampy and this might not be the boost DC is hoping for. Watch this issue regardless and shame on you if you’re not reading Swamp Thing.

Sweet Tooth #34, $2.99
Worlds’ Finest #2 (George Perez Regular Cover), $2.99
Worlds’ Finest #2 (George Perez Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25

Popeye #2 (Cover A Roger Langridge), $3.99. Sold out.

Popeye #2 (Cover RI Tony Millionaire)

Popeye #2 (Cover RI Tony Millionaire), 1:10. This is a fantastic variant by Millionaire (artist of Sock Monkey and Maakies). Watch for an $8-$10 price tag.

Trio #2 (Cover A John Byrne), $3.99
Trio #2 (Cover RI John Byrne & Tom Palmer), 1:10

IMAGE COMICS

Mudman #4, $3.50
Secret #2, $3.50. Sold out

Spawn #220 (Cover A Todd McFarlane ‘Spawn’)

Spawn #220 (Cover A Todd McFarlane ‘Spawn’), $3.99. Sold out. Todd McFarlane returns to Spawn… as the writer? Come on! Dude has become the most famous comic artist that won’t draw anything. Well, I guess he’s back on the covers, too, but if he really wants to move some issues he should start drawing Spawn again. I don’t see much happening here and I have to wonder how low the print run was if all three regular covers sold out?

Spawn #220 (Cover B Todd McFarlane ‘Savage Dragon #1 Homage’), $3.99. Sold out
Spawn #220 (Cover C Todd McFarlane ‘Youngblood #1 Homage’), $3.99, Sold out.
Spawn #220 (Cover D Todd McFarlane Black & White ‘Savage Dragon #1 Homage’), 1:25

MARRS MEDIA

Rue Morgue Magazine #123, $9.95

MARVEL COMICS

Age Of Apocalypse #4 (Humberto Ramos Regular Cover), $2.99

Age Of Apocalypse #4 (Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover)

Age Of Apocalypse #4 (Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover), 1:25. The latest series of 1:25 variants is Spidey-in-Motion and this one by Mike Deodato (maybe?) is pretty under-whelming. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag.

Amazing Spider-Man The Movie #1, $2.99
Amazing Spider-Man Volume 2 The Vulture SC (Young Readers Novel), $6.99
Avengers Academy #31 (AvX)(Giuseppe Camuncoli Regular Cover), $2.99

Avengers Academy #31 (Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover)

Avengers Academy #31 (Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover), 1:25. No artist info but that looks like Lenil Francis Yu to me. Lower orders on this title could make this variant tough to find. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag.

Avengers Vs, X-Men #5 (of 12)(Jim Cheung Regular Cover), $3.99

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Dale Keown Variant Cover)

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Ryan Stegman Sketch Variant Cover)

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Dale Keown Variant Cover), 1:25. This is Keown doing what he does best, drawing giant monstrous men fighting. It doesn’t get much better than this. Love it. Watch for an $8-$10 price tag and there should be plenty of these variants to go around.

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Ryan Stegman Variant Cover), 1:100

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Ryan Stegman Sketch Variant Cover), 1:200. Values on the higher ratioed A vs. X variants have crashed. 1:100 variants are selling for just below $50 and the 1:200’s are going for a little less than $100. The first week the variants hit you’ll see a few going slightly higher but that price seems to collapse a week later. Wait and snipe these out if you need them.

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(Avengers Team Variant Cover),

Avengers Vs. X-Men #5 (of 12)(X-Men Team Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of A vs. X #2 by 90 percent before they could order as many of either team variants as needed. Which would be a huge order, so don’t expect to see to many of these. That said, they’re not selling for much over cover price so don’t pay more than $5.

Avengers West Coast Along Came A Spider-Woman TP, $39.99
Civil War Prose Novel HC, $24.99

Dark Avengers #175 (Mike Deodata Regular Cover), $2.99. Thunderbolts becomes Dark Avengers with this issue and an all new team of villains is put under Luke Cage’s watch. The creative team is staying the same, which is good, because Thunderbolts was a great read, and Marvel is hoping the new team and title gives the book the sales boost it needs to stick around. Give this one a read.

Dark Avengers #175 (Humberto Ramos Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover), 1:25
Deadpool Volume 9 Institutionalized TP, $15.99
Defenders #7, $3.99, Sold out but probably due to the print-run being lowered.
Fury MAX #3, $3.99, Sold out.

Hulk #53, $2.99, Mayan Rule Part 1, billed as a jumping-on point, guest starring Alpha Flight, Machine Man and the She-Hulks.

Invincible Iron Man #518, $3.99, Sold out. New Iron Man armor and it looks really cool!
Journey Into Mystery #639 (Stephanie Hans Regular Cover), $2.99
Journey Into Mystery #639 (Tom Raney Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover), 1:25
Marvel’s The Avengers Black Widow Strikes #3 (of 3), $2.99
Mighty Thor Annual #1 (Patrick Zircher Regular Cover), $4.99. One-shot story by J.M. DeMatteis

Mighty Thor Annual #1 (Arthur Adams Variant Cover)

Mighty Thor Annual #1 (Arthur Adams Variant Cover), 1:25. Who can resist an Art Adams Thor variant? Certainly not this nerd. The $5 price tag might cause a lot of retailers to lower their orders, thereby missing the variant, so watch for $15-$20 price tag.

Moon Knight By Brian Michael Bendis And Alex Maleev Volume 1 TP, $19.99
Spider-Man Big Time Ultimate Collection TP, $39.99
Toy Story #4 (of 4), $2.99
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #11, $3.99, Sold out.

Uncanny X-Men By Kieron Gillen Volume 2 HC (Premiere Edition), $24.99

Winter Soldier #6 (Steve Epting Regular Cover), $2.99. Michael Lark comes on as new storyline artist and it’s going to be awesome. You should be reading this comic!

Winter Soldier #6 (Amazing Spider-Man In Motion Variant Cover), 1:25
X-Factor #237 (David Yardin Regular Cover), $2.99

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT

Harbinger #1 (Arturo Lozzi Regular Cover

Harbinger #1 (Arturo Lozzi Regular Cover), $3.99. The second title in the Valiant relaunch and it looks like fun.
Harbinger #1 (Doug Braithwaite Variant Cover), 1:20

Harbinger #1 (Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic QR Voice Variant Cover), 1:50. Another talking variant where you scan the QR code and set your phone on the cover to hear the main character tell you his story. It’s a fun idea and a creative use of the QR code. Watch for a $30-$35 price tag.

Harbinger #1 (Mico Suayan Pullbox Variant Cover), $3.99. I’ve never heard of Mico Suayan but this is a stunning variant cover. That said, don’t pay more than cover price. Retailers could order as many copies as they needed. The idea was that they would order this cover for people that pre-ordered the title only, but there’s really no way for Diamond to police this.

X-O Manowar #2 (Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic Regular Cover), $3.99

X-O Manowar #2 (Arturo Lozzi Variant Cover)

X-O Manowar #2 (Arturo Lozzi Variant Cover), 1:20. Lozzi is doing fantastic work for Valiant and this variant is another good example of why they need to keep him around. Watch for an $8-$10 price tag. This one is coming home with me.
