The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 08/29/2012

by Matt Baum (08/29/12).

Justice League #12 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams 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

This week I’m filing from beautiful San Francisco where, shamefully, I’ve yet to hit a comic shop. But it’s Wednesday and I’m foaming at the mouth thinking about DC’s National Comics Looker (the first in the National Comics one-shots) and the return of the Phantom Lady, a new Steed and Mrs. Peel series from Daredevil and Irredeemable writer Mark Waid, and the beginning of the “Everything Burns” crossover beginning in this week’s Journey into Mystery.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Aug. 29, 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.

Higher Earth #4 (Cover F Michael Golden CGC 9.8), 1:50

Hypernaturals #1 (David Yardin 3rd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99. Sold out. Printings keep selling out for Hypernaturals, but the first-prints are still selling for cover. This could be another rare case where the second and third prints end up worth more than the first.

Irredeemable Volume 10 TP, $16.99
Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover A Phil Noto), $3.99
Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover B Joshua Covey), $3.99
Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover C Joshua Covey), $3.99

Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover A Phil Noto)

Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover H Joseph Michael Linser CGC 9.8)

Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover D Mike Perkins), $3.99. Avengers fans celebrate (BBC TV Avengers not Marvel Avengers), Daredevil and Irredeemable writer Mark Waid launches a new Steed an Peel series and it should be delightfully British.

Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover E Joshua Covey White), 1:15
Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover F Joshua Covey Black & White), 1:25
Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover G Mike Perkins Black & White), 1:50

Steed And Mrs Peel #0 (Cover H Joseph Michael Linser CGC 9.8), 1:100. With a 1:100 ratio, I wouldn’t expect to see a lot of these around. I’ve never been much of a Linsner fan, but I have to say, this is a very sexy Emma Peel cover and could be pretty hot for both Linsner and Avengers fans. I’d expect to pay at least $80-$100 for this one based only on scarcity. There are none on eBay presently.

Valen The Outcast #8 (Cover A Khary Randolph)(Final Issue), $3.99
Valen The Outcast #8 (Cover B Eddie Nunez)(Final Issue), $3.99

DARK HORSE COMICS

Angel And Faith #13 (Rebekah Isaacs Variant Cover), AR
Angel And Faith #13 (Steve Morris Regular Cover), $2.99
Axe Cop President of The World #2 (of 3), $3.50

B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Return Of The Master #1 (of 5)(Issue 98), $3.50/ They’re listing two different issue numbers here because Dark Horse will be switching the numbering with the 100th issue. Which should make everything nice and confusing for the casual reader.

B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Return Of The Master #1 (of 5)(Issue 98)(Mike MignolaVariant Cover)

B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth The Return Of The Master #1 (of 5)(Issue 98)(Mike MignolaVariant Cover), 1:5. Another in the Mignola “Year of Monsters” series, this time featuring Martians as pictured by H.G. Wells. Watch for a $4-$5 cover price.

Goon #41, $3.50
Mass Effect Homeworlds #4 (of 4)(Anthony Palumbo Regular Cover), $3.50. Features Liara T’Soni.

Mass Effect Homeworlds #4 (of 4)(Mike Hawthorne Variant Cover)

Mass Effect Homeworlds #4 (of 4)(Mike Hawthorne Variant Cover), 1:5. It only took me four issues to realize that Hawthorne was working on an interconnected variant set here, which will be very cool when finished. You can probably find this one for cover price.

Riven TP, $17.99

DC COMICS

American Vampire #30 (Jock Variant Cover), 1:10
American Vampire #30 (Rafael Albuquerque Regular Cover), $2.99
Aquaman #12 (Ivan Reis & Joe Prado Regular Cover), $2.99

Aquaman #12 (Ivan Reis & Joe Prado Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25. This is a black and white version of the regular cover in wraparound format. I like the idea if DC is switching to the wrap format for its B&W variants but it’s not catching on yet. This variant is pre-selling for $6-$10 currently.

Aquaman #12 (Robot Chicken Variant Cover)

Aquaman #12 (Robot Chicken Variant Cover), 1:25. Yep, it’s what you think it is and, as a fan of the show, I love it. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag.

Batman And Robin #10 (Patrick Gleason & Mick Gray 2nd Printing Variant), $2.99
Batman And Robin #11 (Patrick Gleason & Mick Gray 2nd Print Variant), $2.99
Batman Beyond Unlimited #7, $3.99

Justice League #12 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams Regular Cover), $3.99
Sold out.

Justice League #12 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams Variant Cover). Retailers could order this variant based on their lowest-ordered DC New 52 title with the same FOC. I’ve been warning people about paying more than cover price for these variants but this one might be an exception, for obvious reasons. Love it or hate it, Superman is kissing on Wonder Woman.

Justice League #12 (Jim Lee Black & White Variant Cover), 1:100
Justice League International Annual #1, $4.99. Ties into Justice League #12.

National Comics Looker #1, $3.99. This is the first of the National Comics one-shots featuring a super model turned vampire. Apparently, Looker is a reinvention of an old DC character. News to me, but it does look interesting and it’s been a while since Ian Edington has written anything.

New Deadwardians #6 (of 8), $2.99
Phantom Lady #1 (of 4), $2.99. Redesigned Phantom Lady by Justin Grey and Jimmy Palmiotti. Looks like fun.

Chew Secret Agent Poyo #1 (One Shot)(2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.50. First-prints had a price spike and were briefly selling for almost $10 and then, as usual, people flooded eBay with copies and now it’s going for closer to $5.

Creator Owned Heroes #1 (2nd Printing Variant Cover), $3.99. If you missed it, here’s your second chance to jump on this fantastic book. Jimmy Palmiotti basically lets his friends (this time it’s Phil Noto and Steve Niles) write their own characters. Packed full of interviews and extras, this comic is totally worth its cover price.

Journey Into Mystery #642 (Stephanie Hans Variant Cover)

Journey Into Mystery #642 (Stephanie Hans Variant Cover), 1:20. This is a really nice looking variant that’s the first part of an interconnected variant with Thor #19. keep in mind Journey isn’t ordered as highly as Thor so expect it to be harder to find. Watch for a $9-$12 price tag.

X-O Manowar #4 (Don Kramer Variant Cover), 1:20. Not the most impressive work I’ve seen from Kramer but still a nice cover. All the Manowar variants seem to be selling well and at least holding their value. Watch for a $7-$9 price tag.
