The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 10/10/2012

by Matt Baum (10/10/12).

Red She-Hulk #58 (Ed McGuinness 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

October is in full swing and that doesn’t just mean your new comics will be infested with ghosts and goblins. Rest assured they are as Evil Ernie returns this week and Batman is fighting zombies, oh, and the Joker is back too. But that’s not all, Marvel’s NOW initiative kicks in this week with Uncanny Avengers #1 and the Red She-Hulk #58. It’s all happening at your friendly neighborhood comic shop.

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Oct. 10, 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.

Adventure Time Marceline and the Scream Queens #4 (Cover D Faith Erin Hicks)

Adventure Time Marceline and the Scream Queens #4 (Cover D Faith Erin Hicks), 1:20. Again, two great variants from the Adventure Time crew. I love the Hicks cover. Watch for these to go quickly, seeing as a lot of retailers aren’t ordering the 15-20 copies necessary to get these variants. (1:15, $8-$10, 1:20, $12-$14)

Ame-Comi Girls #1 (Featuring Wonder Woman)(Dustin Nguyen Variant Cover), 1:25

Batgirl #13 , $2.99
Batman #13 (Greg Capullo Regular Cover), $3.99. Return of the Joker. “Death of the Family,” part one.

Batman #13 (Combo Pack Edition), $4.99. Comes with free digital download code.

Batman #13 (Aaron Kuder Variant Cover)

Batman #13 (Aaron Kuder Variant Cover), 1:25. I really love this variant and I’m guessing it goes quick. Kuder is fairly new on DC cover duty, but if he can continue to crank out work like this, I’d expect him to have a monthly job real soon. ($10-$12)

Batman #13 (Greg Capullo Black & White Variant Cover), 1:100. Collectors seem to be interested in this one and it’s obviously because of the Joker’s return. This variant is pre-selling for $100 and if you need one, I’d expect to pay the same.

Batman And Robin #13, $2.99
Batman Arkham Unhinged #7, $2.99
Batman Odyssey HC, $29.99
Before Watchmen Dr. Manhattan #2 (of 4)(Adam Hughes Regular Cover), $3.99

Before Watchmen Dr. Manhattan #2 (of 4)(P. Craig Russell Variant Cover)

Before Watchmen Dr. Manhattan #2 (of 4)(P. Craig Russell Variant Cover), 1:25. It’s been a while since we’ve seen any work from Russel and this variant instantly reminded me how much I’ve missed him. Very cool stuff. ($7-$10)

Birds Of Prey Volume 2 The Death Of Oracle TP, $16.99. Collects #7-13 of the pre-relaunch Birds of Prey when Barbra Gordon was still Oracle (and I would argue, the last time she was interesting).

Deathstroke #13, $2.99
Demon Knights #13, $2.99
Dominique Laveau Voodoo Child #7 (Final Issue), $2.99
Frankenstein Agent Of S.H.A.D.E. #13 , $2.99

Legion Lost #13, $2.99

Nightwing Volume 1 Traps and Trapezes TP, $14.99. Collects the relaunched Nightwing #1-7 by Kyle Higgins and Eddy Barrows. Great stuff for any Dick Grayson fan.

Phantom Stranger #1 (Brent Anderson Regular Cover), $2.99. The caped man of occult mystery returns with a new take on the character for the new DCU and is that Trigon in the background?

Phantom Stranger #1 (Shane Davis Variant Cover), 1:25
Punk Rock Jesus #4 (of 6) , $2.99
Ravagers #5, $2.99
Suicide Squad #13, $2.99
Superboy #13, $2.99

Team 7 #1 (Doug Mahnke Regular Cover), $2.99. Here comes more forcing the Wildstorm U into the new DCU. I loved Team 7 back in the Wildstorm glory days (late ’90s-early 2000s) but I’m not sure what I think about this one. I do like the writer, Justin Jordan, who previously wrote the Strange Talent of Luther Strode for Image.

Team 7 #1 (Jim Lee & Scott Williams Variant Cover), AR

DEL REY

Hobbit TP (New Printing), $20. I don’t know how I wasn’t aware of this, but apparently Chuck Dixion wrote a graphic adaptation of the Hobbit back in the late ’80s. Guess I’m picking this up.

Dark Shadows #8 (Francesco Francavilla Regular Cover), $3.99
Dark Shadows Vampirella #3 (Fabiano Neves Regular Cover), $3.99

Evil Ernie #1 (Ardian Syaf Regular Cover), $3.99. Because someone demanded it, Evil Ernie is back. Sigh… And, noticeably, not at his creator’s imprint (Brian Pulido, Boundless), which leads me to believe that when Chaos Comics collapsed, or perhaps Devil’s Due, Pulido lost the rights to his creation. Regardless, this one could be crazy. Note the “could be.” There’re still plenty of Chaos fans out there that are still “sworn to the black” and they’re variant crazy.

Evil Ernie #1 (Nick Bradshaw Regular Cover), $3.99

Haunted Horror #1 (The Chilling Archives Of Horror Comics)(Cover A Lee Elias) $3.99. This one was originally titled “Scary” and still says “Scary” in big, bold, scary letters on the cover, but know is titled “Haunted Horror.” Why? No clue, but it is going to be fun. Haunted Horror reprints the best of the banned 1950s EC horror comics. Perfect for Halloween reading.

Avenging Spider-Man #13, $3.99
AvX Consequences #1 (of 5)(Patrick Zircher Regular Cover), $3.99

AvX Consequences #1 (of 5)(Paola Rivera Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of Avengers #26 with this issue before they could order all they need of this one. This is the first in a series of Breast Cancer awareness covers that will run through October, National Breast Cancer Awareness week. Click here for more info. These variants are only available to Diamond customers in North America and the U.K. so international collectors could be looking for them.

Captain America #18 (Steve Epting Regular Cover), $3.99

Captain America #18 (Dale Keown Susan G. Komen Variant Cover)

Captain America #18 (Dale Keown Susan G. Komen Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of Cap #10 before they could order this variant as needed. These are pre-selling for $5-$15. It’s hard to guess where any of these will end up in price.

Captain America by Ed Brubaker Volume 3 HC (Premiere Edition), $24.99. Collecting CAPTAIN AMERICA (2011) #11-14.

Fantastic Four #611 (Billy Tan Final Issue Variant Cover)

Fantastic Four #611 (John Tyler Christopher Susan G. Komen Variant Cover)

Fantastic Four #611 (Billy Tan Final Issue Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of FF #605 before they could order this variant as needed. Which, again, makes it almost impossible to price. I would treat this like a 1:10 and watch for a $5-$7 price tag.

Fantastic Four #611 (John Tyler Christopher Susan G. Komen Variant Cover). Same as the other FF variant, exceed their order of #605 and order as needed. And just like the other variant, I’d treat it like a 1:10.

Fear Itself Avengers Academy TP, $19.99. Collecting AVENGERS ACADEMY #14.1 and #14-20.

Fear Itself Invincible Iron Man TP, $16.99. Collecting INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #504-509 and FEAR ITSELF #7.3: IRON MAN.

First X-Men #3 (of 5)(Neal Adams Regular Cover), $3.99

First X-Men #3 (of 5)(Edgar Delgado Variant Cover)

First X-Men #3 (of 5)(Edgar Delgado Variant Cover) 1:75. This is a really nice-looking Sabretooth variant by Delgado, but at a 1:75 ratio, I wouldn’t expect to see too many. If you need one, be prepared to pay top dollar.

Invincible Iron Man #526 (Salvador Larroca Regular Cover), $3.99

Invincible Iron Man #526 (Paul Renaud Susan G. Komen Variant Cover)

Invincible Iron Man #526 (Paul Renaud Susan G. Komen Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their orders of Iron Man #520 before they could order this as needed. Again, watch for a $5-$7 price tag.

Red She-Hulk #58 (Carlo Pagulayan Regular Cover), $2.99. Jeff Parker’s Hulk series becomes Red She-Hulk with this issue (terrible title) and follows the adventures of Hulked out Betty Ross.

Red She-Hulk #58 (Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover)

Red She-Hulk #58 (Greg Horn Variant Cover)

Red She-Hulk #58 (Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed their order of Captain Marvel (2012) before they could order all they needed of this variant. Personally, I don’t get why Skottie Young is obsessed with drawing Marvel heroes as babies. These are pre-selling for cover price.

Red She-Hulk #58 (Ed McGuinness Variant Cover), 1:20. Fun homage to John Byrne’sShe-Hulk #1(Marvel, 1989). Watch for a $8-$10 price tag.

Red She-Hulk #58 (Greg Horn Variant Cover), 1:50. I’m guessing a lot of retailers won’t be ordering the 50 copies needed to get this variant. These are pre-selling for around $30 and that seems reasonable.

Scarlet Spider #10, $2.99. Sold out. Part two of “Minimum Carnage.”

Secret Avengers #32, $3.99

Uncanny Avengers #1 (John Cassaday Regular Cover), $3.99. In the aftermath of AvsX, the Avengers and X-Men (most of them) have kissed and made up and formed a new team mixing the two. This one is going to be great, but with all the ordering incentives and variants, I wouldn’t expect it to be worth much anytime soon.

Uncanny Avengers #1 (Daniel Acuna Variant Cover)

Uncanny Avengers #1 (Adi Granov Variant Cover), 1:75. Holy smoke, Mr. Granov, that is one sassy looking Scarlet Witch. Watch for a $20-$25 price tag.

Uncanny Avengers #1 (Oliver Coipel Sketch Variant Cover), 1:200. ($50-$60)

Uncanny Avengers #1 (Oliver Coipel Sketch Variant Cover)

Uncanny Avengers #1 (Mark Brooks Deadpool Call Me Maybe Sketch Variant Cover). These were one per retailer and are already pre-selling for more than $100. This definitely one to watch.

    Titles like Uncanny Avengers and A+X (worst…title…ever) are new series, but does anyone really believe that Spider-man, FF, and the rest wont just return to regular numbering at some random ‘anniversary’ issue? Renumbering some titles at #1 is acceptable, but doing it across the entire line is just a simple money grab to make their year end numbers appear stronger. And 13 covers to Uncanny Avengers to boot…
