Deadpool #1 (Chris Bachalo 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 (CPG) and current online auction sales. Sales numbers and rankings are courtesy of Lists of new comics are courtesy of and 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

Hope you all remembered to vote yesterday because if you don’t, you’re not allowed to complain. Today, however, is Wednesday and time to do your civic duty as a comic book nerd and get to your local comic shop. This week, Marvel rolls out two more Marvel Now titles with the new Iron Man and Deadpool, Stan Sakai returns with an amazing tale of Samurais in feudal Japan and Willow gets her own mini-series at Dark Horse. Also, watch for a new Hellraiser mini and Freelancers #1 from BOOM!, the first of the “We Can Be Heroes” variants at DC and a new creative team for the Shadow from Dynamite. What better way to wash down an ugly election season?

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Nov. 7, 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.

Happy #1 (of 4)(2nd Printing Variant Cover), $2.99. Sold out. Writer Grant Morrison’s Happy #1 first printing sold out very quickly and are selling for $7 and up. Judging by the second prints selling out before shipping, I’d guess demand is still pretty high.

AvX Consequences #5 (of 5)(Patrick Zircher Regular Cover), $3.99. Sold out.

AvX Consequences #5 (of 5)(Jorge Molina Variant Cover)

AvX Consequences #5 (of 5)(Jorge Molina Variant Cover), 1:30. This is another great Molina variant, this time featuring Cable without his cybernetic arm. And here, all this time I thought he lost his arm but it turns out there was a feeble little, shriveled arm under there.

Daredevil End Of Days #2 (of 8)(Alex Maleev Regular Cover), $3.99

Daredevil End Of Days #2 (of 8)(David Mack Artist Variant Cover),

Daredevil End Of Days #2 (of 8)(David Mack Artist Variant Cover), 1:25. I’m not sure if these “artist” variants are part of a series but, if so, count me in. This Mack DD variant is very cool and leaves me wanting to see his Wolverine and Spidey. Watch for a $10-$12 price tag.

Deadpool #1 (Geof Darrow Regular Cover), $2.99. Comedians Brian Posehn (The Sarah Silverman Show) and Gerry Duggan (Attack of the Show) team up with Walking Dead artist Terry Moore for Deadpool’s Marvel Now debut. With this group of creators, I have to see what happens here.

Deadpool #1 (Blank Variant Cover),

Deadpool #1 (Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover)

Deadpool #1 (Tony Moore Design Variant Cover)

Deadpool #1 (Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover). Retailers had to Exceed orders for AVX Vs. #5 (JUN120590) with orders for Deadpool #1 before they could order both of these variants as needed.

Deadpool #1 (Tony Moore Design Variant Cover), 1:25. I haven’t been a big fan of some of Moore’s super-hero work but this Deadpool design looks great. I like the idea of character designs as variant covers and expect this one to sell well. Watch for a $10-$15 price tag

Deadpool #1 (Chris Bachalo Variant Cover), 1:50. I love this Bachalo variant and might have trouble not coming home with this one. Watch for a $30-$35 price tag. .

Defenders #12 (Final Issue), $3.99
Fear Itself Heroes For Hire TP, $19.99. Collecting HEROES FOR HIRE (2011) #6-12.
Fear Itself Wolverine New Mutants TP, $19.99. Collecting FEAR ITSELF: WOLVERINE #1-3 and NEW MUTANTS (2009) #29-32.
Hulk Abominable HC (Premiere Edition), $34.99
Hulk Abominable HC (Premiere Edition)(Direct Market Variant Edition Vol 106), $34.99. Collecting INCREDIBLE HULK (2000) #50-59.

Iron Man #1 (Greg Land Regular Cover), $3.99. This is the first in the Marvel Now relaunches and it looks like it’ll be fun. Gillen was doing an amazing job on Journey Into Mystery and Uncanny X-Men and I’m really looking forward to his Iron Man. Pick this one up.

Iron Man #1 (Adi Granov Artist Variant Cover)

Iron Man #1 (Adi Granov Artist Variant Cover), 1:50. Granov is no stranger to Iron Man covers and this one is another very cool variant. There should be plenty of these around as I expect #1 to be very well ordered. Watch for a $25-$30 price tag.

Iron Man #1 (Blank Variant Cover). Retailers had to exceed 125 percent of their orders for AVX Vs. #3 with this issue before they could order the blank variant as needed.

Iron Man #1 (Carlo Pagulayan Design Variant Cover), AR
Iron Man #1 (Joe Quesada Sketch Variant Cover), AR
Iron Man #1 (Joe Quesada Variant Cover), AR
Iron Man #1 (Skottie Young Baby Variant Cover), AR
Marvel Universe The Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Comic Reader #4, $3.99
Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 1 Digest TP, $9.99. Collecting MARVEL UNIVERSE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1-4. Based on the DIsney XD animated series.

Marvel’s Iron Man 2 Adaptation #1 (of 2), $2.99. Why Marvel is choosing to adapt this movie now, more than a year after its release, seems strange. Maybe they just finished it?

New Avengers #32, $3.99
Road to Oz #3 (of 6), $3.99
Scarlet Spider #11, $2.99
Spaceknights #2 (of 3), $3.99

Shadowman #1 (Patrick Zircher Regular Cover), $3.99. Justin Jordan, writer of the Strange Talent of Luther Strode, gets his shot at the newly revamped Shadowman and it looks very cool.

Shadowman #1 (Patrick Zircher Pullbox Blackout Cover)

Shadowman #1 (Dave Johnson Variant Cover)

Shadowman #1 (Patrick Zircher Pullbox Blackout Cover), $3.99. I know this one looks like a black rectangle, but if you look very closely there’s a faint, black-on-black image of Shadowman. Keep in mind this isn’t a true variant. Retailers could order this one as needed, presumably for their pull-file customers that ordered this one in advance. But there was no way for Diamond to police the “pullbox variant,” so I wouldn’t pay more than cover for this one.

Shadowman #1 (Dave Johnson Variant Cover), 1:20. Dave Johnson is awesome, as usual, here with his Shadowman variant. Watch for $12-$14 price tag and don’t be surprised if it’s hard to find. Most shops won’t be taking chances on this one.

Shadowman #1 (Bill Sienkiewicz Variant Cover), 1:50. Unlike the variants Sienkiewicz has been doing for Hypernaturals over at BOOM!, I can actually tell what he’s painting here and I really dig it. And I expect this one to be very hard to find. Watch for a $30-$40 price tag.
