The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 09/06/2012

by Matt Baum (09/06/12).

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Dave Gibbons Classic Retro 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

Back home and back to the proverbial grind stone. Although late. Sorry about that, I blame the good people at Southwest Airlines for delaying me a day in Phoenix and losing my luggage. Somehow it made the plane home. But you know what they say, any landing you can walk away from is a good one right? Now let’s get to it! It’s a HUGE week for new comics with a ton of New DCU #0 issues (note all the previews I hunted down), a new Alan Moore mini-series at Avatar, the return of the Mighty Crusaders (sort of), and Peter Canon Thunderbolt (but not at DC). Expect mayhem!

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

Hypernaturals #3 (Cover E Bill Sienkiewicz CGC 9.8)

Hypernaturals #3 (Cover E Bill Sienkiewicz CGC 9.8), 1:30. This is the lowest ratio I’ve seen for a BOOM! CGC variant yet, which leads me to wonder if orders haven’t been as high as its hoped on the other CGC variants with 1:50 or higher ratios. They certainly aren’t selling like they used to.

Planet Of The Apes Cataclysm #1 (Cover A Alex Ross)

Planet Of The Apes Cataclysm #1 (Cover A Alex Ross), $3.99

Planet Of The Apes Cataclysm #1 (Cover F Joe Quinones Black & White), 1:50

Planet Of The Apes Cataclysm #1 (Cover H Alex Ross CGC 9.8), 1:100. I’d be shocked to see many of these out there. If you need one (and “need” is a pretty strong word here), be prepared to pay top dollar for it. Unfortunately, you might not see top dollar for it later.

Action Comics #0 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. Comes with free digital download code.
Action Comics #0 (Rags Morales Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25

Action Comics #0 (Rags Morales Variant Cover). Retailers could order this variant based on their lowest-ordered New DCU Relaunch title with the same FOC.

Animal Man #0, $2.99

Aquaman Volume 1 The Trench HC, $22.99. Collects #1-#6 and it’s quite possibly the best new title to come out of the relaunch.

Batman Knightfall Volume 3 Knightsend TP (New Edition), $29.99. Collects BATMAN #509-514, BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE BAT #29-34, DETECTIVE COMICS #676-681, BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #62-63, ROBIN #8-13 and CATWOMAN #12-13.

Green Lantern #0 (Doug Mahnke & Christian Alamy Regular Cover), $2.99. First appearance of new Muslim Green Lantern. If the cable news cycle picks up on this one, it could be big. That said, the DNC is going on so that could overshadow the new Arab GL.

Boys #70 (Darick Robertson Regular Cover), $3.99

Damsels #1 (J. Scott Campbell Regular Cover), $3.99. New series starring Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, the Little Mermaid and Snow White trying to save their fairytale kingdoms. Sounds a lot like DC/Vertigo’s Fairest to me.

Damsels #1 (J. Scott Campbell Sketch Variant Cover), 1:15
Damsels #1 (J. Scott Campbell Black & White Variant Cover), 1:25
Damsels #1 (J. Scott Campbell Virgin Variant Cover), 1:50

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Ardian Syaf Regular Cover), $3.99
Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Jae Lee Regular Cover), $3.99

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (John Cassaday Regular Cover), $3.99. In true form, Dynamite plucks yet another character from the Golden-Age and gives them a brand new ongoing season. Pete Canon was created by Peter Morisi and first appeared in Thunderbolt #1 in 1966.

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Dave Gibbons Classic Retro Variant Cover)

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Jae Lee Black & White Variant Cover)

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Dave Gibbons Classic Retro Variant Cover), 1:25
Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (George Tuska Classic Retro Variant Cover), 1:50
Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Pete Morisi Classic Retro Variant Cover), 1:75

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1 (Jae Lee Black & White Variant Cover), 1:100. Four variants for Thunderbolt #1 and they’re all really nice looking, whether anyone cares remains to be seen. If you want any of these you’re probably going to end up paying top dollar for it, as most retailers are not going to take the risk here.

Robert Jordan’s The Wheel Of Time The Eye Of The World #29, $3.99
Vampirella #22 (Ale Garza Regular Cover), $3.99

Cape 1969 #3 (of 4)(Cover RI Nelson Daniel),
Classic Popeye #2 (Cover A Bud Sagendorf), $3.99
Crow #3 (of 5)(Cover A Kyle Hotz), $3.99

Crow #3 (of 5)(Cover RI-A James O’Barr)

Crow #3 (of 5)(Cover RI-A James O’Barr), 1:25. This is a nice cover by Crow creator O’Barr, which leads me to ask, why isn’t he writing this series? I really don’t care for the story so far and have to wonder if O’Barr couldn’t do a better job? Regardless, watch for a $12-$15 price tag.

IMAGE COMICS

Black Kiss II #1 (of 6)(2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99

Black Kiss II #2 (of 6), $2.99. Sold out. There was some hub-bub about British customs seizing #1 and now it seems Diamond UK has canceled orders for #2 all together. Image Comics is solely distributed by Image, meaning the only way Britt’s get their hands on issue #2 is through Internet sales. Watch this one. Things could get really wacky.

Creator Owned Heroes #4 (Cover B Kevin Mellon), $3.99

Think Tank #2 (Cover A Rahsan Ekedal & Brian Reber), $3.99

KENZER AND COMPANY

First X-Men #2 (of 5)(Mike Deodato Variant Cover), 1:75

Hawkeye #1 (David Aja 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99. First prints here are going from $4-$5 and seem to be crawling up slowly. This is a title that I’m guessing gains momentum in the next few months, which will leave #1 very difficult to find.

Hawkeye #2, $2.99
Hulk Boiling Point HC (Premiere Edition), $34.99
Hulk Boiling Point HC (Premiere Edition)(Direct Market Variant Edition Volume 102), $34.99. Collecting INCREDIBLE HULK (2000) #40-49.

Phineas and Ferb Magazine #12 (Disney Publishing Worldwide), $4.99
Punisher #15, $2.99

Road To Oz #1 (of 6)(Skottie Young Regular Cover), $3.99. Another new Oz mini-series from Marvel and, like the others, it’ll probably be critically acclaimed and beautifully illustrated.

Road To Oz #1 (of 6)(Eric Shanower Variant Cover)

Road To Oz #1 (of 6)(Eric Shanower Variant Cover), 1:15. There aren’t many of these out there but the few that I have seen are pre-selling for $8-$10. Great-looking variant by Age of Bronze writer and artist Shanower who just seems to keep getting better.

Road To Oz #1 (of 6)(Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their order of Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz #8 by 150 percent (which is a lot) before they could order this variant as needed. Watch for a $5-$6 price tag.

Spider-Man Revenge Of The Sinister Six HC (Premiere Edition), $29.99
Spider-Man Revenge Of The Sinister Six HC (Premiere Edition)(Direct Market Variant Edition Volume 103), $29.99. Collecting SPIDER-MAN (1990) #15 and #18-23.

Thunderbolts Like Lightning TP, $16.99. Collecting THUNDERBOLTS #169-174.
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #14, $3.99
Venom #24 (Patch Zircher Regular Cover), $2.99

Venom #24 (Skottie Young Amazing Spider-Man 50th Anniversary Variant)

Venom #24 (Skottie Young Amazing Spider-Man 50th Anniversary Variant). Retailers had to exceed their order of Venom #20 with #24 and they could order as needed on this variant. And it’s a great one by Young. These are currently pre-selling for $6-$7, not a bad price. I’d grab this variant before it disappears.

X-Factor #243, $2.99
X-Treme X-Men #1 (Julian Totino Tedesco 2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99

Bloodshot #3 (Esad Ribic Regular Cover), $3.99

Bloodshot #3 (Arturo Lozzi Variant Cover)

Bloodshot #3 (Arturo Lozzi Variant Cover), 1:25. Lozzi has been killing it on these Valiant variants and this one is no exception. These are pre-selling for $15, which isn’t unreasonable and, based on the way the other 1:25 variants are holding their value ($15-$20), it leads me to believe a lot of retailers aren’t qualifying for the variant. Which is too bad, because this series is excellent.
