The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 07/11/2012

by Matt Baum (07/10/12).

Walking Dead #100 (Cover G Ryan Ottley).

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

Lots of returns this week, including Battle Beasts (dose anyone else remember these?), the clone of Jesus Christ (nope, not making that up), the Crow, the old Marvel Comics Transformers series and a whole town’s worth of dead people. Speaking of dead folks, Walking Dead turns #100 this week and if your store is awesome, like mine, you can get your copy tonight at midnight.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, July 11, 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.

7 Warriors TP, $9.99
Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover A Jen Bennett), $3.99

Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover B Chynna Clugston)

Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover B Chynna Clugston), $3.99. 1:10, ships with regular cover. New mini-series that follows Marceline and her girl-rock band through the world of Adventure Time. Unlike the early issues of the regular Adventure Time series, this one hasn’t sold out before shipping yet. My guess is copies sell comparably fast as the regular series and early next week, after the re-orders come in, Marceline #1 sells out and gets very hard to find. I love this Clugston variant, by the way.

Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover D Lucy Knisley), 1:15
Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover C Ming Doyle), 1:20
Adventure Time Marceline And The Scream Queens #1 (Cover E Colleen Coover), 1:30

Creepy Presents Richard Corben HC, $29.99

Eerie Comics #1, $2.99. New series. This issue features stories by David Lapham and Christopher Taylor with a back-up reprint from the original Creepy magazine.

Hellboy Library Edition Volume 5 Darkness Calls and The Wild Hunt HC, $49.99. Collects Darkness Calls and The Wild Hunt; the short story The Mole; and an extensive selection of previously unreleased sketches and designs.

Hunchback Of Notre Dame HC, $12.99

Massive #2 (J.P. Leon Regular Cover), $3.50. If you can find #1 of this new Brian Wood series (shockingly still in print), pick it up. Great premise, amazing art and Wood is doing some serious world building here that looks like he’s in it for the long haul. This is must read stuff for any near dystopic future Sci-Fi fan.

Massive #2 (Rafael Grampa Variant Cover), 1:10
Occultist Volume 1 TP, $16.99
Orchid Volume 1 TP, $17.99
Star Wars Knight Errant Escape #2 (of 5), $3.50

American Vampire Lord Of Nightmares #2 (of 5), $2.99
Batgirl #11, $2.99
Batgirl Volume 1 The Darkest Reflection HC, $22.99. Collects #1-6
Batman #11 (Greg Capullo Regular Cover), $3.99. Night of the Owls conclusion.
Batman #11 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. With free digital download code.

Batman #11 (Andy Clarke Variant Cover)

Batman #11 (Andy Clarke Variant Cover), Retailers could order this variant equal to the lowest-ordered New DCU title with the same FOC. Again, don’t pay more than cover for this one. Just because your shop only ordered one copy of Resurrection Man #11, which is a shame, because it’s a great read, doesn’t make this variant one-per-store.

Batman #11 (Greg Capullo Black & White Variant Cover), 1:100.
Batman And Robin #11, $2.99
Batman Arkham Unhinged #4, $2.99
Before Watchmen Minutemen #2 (Darwyn Cooke Regular Cover), $3.99
Before Watchmen Minutemen #2 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. With free digital download code.

Before Watchmen Minutemen #2 (Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez Variant Cover)

Before Watchmen Minutemen #2 (Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez Variant Cover), 1:25. I love this Lopez variant and was pleased to find out it was only a 1:25; no 1:200’s after the first issues, I guess. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag and there should be plenty of these out there.

Deathstroke #11, $2.99
Demon Knights #11, $2.99

Demon Knights Volume 1 Seven Against The Dark TP, $14.99. Collects #1-6 and worth picking up if you skipped this one. Cornell is doing a fantastic job, and since the series is set in the past, it seems DC editorial is letting him run rampant.

Frankenstein Agent Of S.H.A.D.E. #11, $2.99
Green Lantern The Animated Series #4, $2.99
Grifter #11, $2.99
JLA Volume 2 TP, $24.99
Legion Lost #11, $2.99
Neil Gaiman’s Midnight Days HC (Deluxe Edition), $24.99

Punk Rock Jesus #1 (of 6), $2.99. My Pick of the Week. New series written and drawn by Sean Murphy, who is easily one of the best comic artists working today (see his Joe the Barbarian series for proof). This is Murphy’s first writing gig, so we’ll see this Wednesday if he’s a writer, too. The series is about the clone of Jesus Christ, J2 (not Little Juggernaut from Marvel’s J2 series), traveling the country followed by a reality TV crew. If you pick up one comic this week, make it this one. It might not be worth much anytime soon, but it’s gonna be wild ride.

Ravagers #3, $2.99
Resurrection Man #11, $2.99
Saucer Country #5, $2.99
Shade #10 (of 12)(Tony Harris Regular Cover), $2.99

Battle Beasts #1 (of 4)(Cover A Dan Brereton)

Battle Beasts #1 (of 4)(Cover A Dan Brereton), $3.99. Most of you are probably too young or too old to remember Battle Beasts. They were 2 inch anthropomorphic animals with powers based on the four elements and they were popular for about two months in the mid 1980’s I loved them and I really want to love this new mini-series. That said, I wouldn’t trade Bobby Curnow for his job as writer here. Good luck fleshing this one out buddy.

Battle Beasts #1 (of 4)(Cover RI Ulises Farinas), 1:10

Transformers Regeneration One #81 (Cover A Andrew Wildman)

Transformers Regeneration One #81 (Cover A Andrew Wildman), $3.99

Transformers Regeneration One #81 (Cover B Guido Guidi), $3.99. This new Transformers series picks up where the Marvel Transformers continuity left off back in 1991 and is written and drawn by the original creative team. So, same Transformers you might remember as a kid, different continuity from the two other currently running IDW series. Only in comics, folks.

Transformers Regeneration One #81 (Cover RI-A Geoff Senior), 1:10

Enormous #1 (One Shot), $9.99. Giant monsters anyone?
Heart TP, $12.99

Hoax Hunters #1

Hoax Hunters #1, $2.99. After the #0 sold out and was very well-received and reviewed, I thought #1 would surely follow, but nope. Here we are, the day before it hits the stands and it’s still in stock. Pick this one up. Hoax Hunters has a great hook and really talented creative team.

Li’l Depressed Boy #12, $2.99. Sold out.
Peter Panzerfaust #5, $3.50

Planetoid #1 (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99. You can still get first-prints for cover price but there doesn’t seem to be many left. Issue #1 got a lot of great press (I gave it a glowing review) and I’m betting this series continues to heat up. Go find a copy if you skipped this one.

Planetoid #2, $2.99

Revival #1 (Cover A Jenny Frison)

Revival #1 (Cover A Jenny Frison), $2.99. Sold out. New series from Hack/Slash writer Tim Seeley and Battlepug artist Mike Norton about the dead coming back to life as fully functioning human beings for one day in a small town in Wisconsin. This one sold out right after being previewed in last month’s Walking Dead #99 and should be hot very hard to find.

Revival #1 (Cover B Craig Thompson), 1:10. A rare variant from multi Eisner winner Craig Thompson and it’s pretty cool.

Sunset First Look (One Shot), $1. Preview of the upcoming GN by Christos Gage and Jorge Lucas.

Thief Of Thieves #1 (5th Printing Variant Cover), $2.99. First prints of #1 continue to sell for more than $40 and second and third prints are starting to sell for more than $10. The madness continues here.

Walking Dead #100 (Cover G Ryan Ottley), $3.99. Sold out. Count ’em, eight regular covers and the only one not already sold out is the regular Adlard cover. The madness hasn’t started yet, but I’m guessing Tuesday night at midnight (several shops are having midnight release parties) it begins. There doesn’t seem to be a clear winner, as far as pre-sales go. I really like the Sean Phillips cover and think McFarlane just missed the point all together, so we’ll just have to watch and see what happens for now.

Walking Dead #100 (Cover H Charlie Adlard Wraparound), $3.99. Sold out.
Walking Dead #100 (Charlie Adlard Wraparound Chromium Edition), $9.99. There doesn’t seem to be anything extra here other than a shiny cover. Thumbs down.

Walking Dead #100 (Charlie Adlard Wraparound Black & White Variant Cover), 1:200. This one is currently pre-selling for $250 and up but don’t freak out. I’m guessing that price collapses after Wednesday setteling right around the $180-$200 range.

Spider-Men #3 (of 5)(Terry Dodson Variant Cover)

Spider-Men #3 (of 5)(Terry Dodson Variant Cover), 1:30. Terry Dodson kills it here as usual, but I thought Miles Morales was 13-years-old. That guy Carrying Gwen looks huge. Watch for a $12-$15 price tag.

Spider-Men #3 (of 5)(Sara Pichelli Variant Cover), 1:100. Both of the previous 1:100 variants are selling for just under $50 which is a good price for this one also.

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT

Bloodshot #1 (Arturo Lozzi Regular Cover), $3.99. Bloodshot returns, written by Duane Swierczynski, whose been doing wonderful work on Birds of Prey over at DC. I’ve been digging all the Valiant relaunch stuff and this looks like another winner.

Bloodshot #1 (Mico Suayan Pullbox Cover)

Bloodshot #1 (Mico Suayan Pullbox Cover), $3.99. Don’t pay more than cover price here. Like the other Valiant pullbox variants, retailers had no restrictions on ordering and paid the same price as the regular cover. It’s a cool variant, sure, but treat this one like an alternate regular cover.

Bloodshot #1 (David Aja Variant Cover)

Bloodshot #1 (David Aja Variant Cover), 1:20. I love this Aja variant. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag, but keep your hands off mine.

Bloodshot #1 (Esad Ribic Variant Cover)

Bloodshot #1 (Esad Ribic Variant Cover), 1:50. Another very cool variant from Ribic and one that’s pre-selling all over the place; anywhere from $45-$75. Retailers don’t seem totally sold on the Valiant relaunch yet, so expect to pay a little more if you need this one. Watch for a $35-$40 price tag.

Harbinger #2 (Arturo Lozzi Regular Cover), $3.99
Harbinger #2 (Doug Braithwaite Variant Cover), 1:20

    I collected “Underground Comics” in the 1970′s, a couple of beer-boxes full. Are these worth anything today? I also have the entire first year of Heavy Metal in an HM binder. Any value?
