The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 02/26/2014

Fantastic Four #1 (Jerome Opena Variant), 1:50 ($10-$12). The Fantastic Four gets another #1 this week, new red costumes and a new writer in James Robinson.

New Comics Roundup

The Fantastic Four gets another #1 this week, new red costumes (I’m not crazy about the new look) and a new writer in James Robinson. And, as always, there’re plenty of variants (that you don’t need). Also, watch for two new Image series with guys holding guns on the cover. Lois Lane gets a one-shot at DC for one reason or another. Finally, Dark Horse takes center stage this new comics day with three new series that all look fantastic! Yes, it’s still winter, but the good news is it’s new comic day, too!

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, Feb. 26, including variant ratios, previews (click on the links), 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. The prices in parenthesizes after variant listings (i.e. $10-$15), are my suggested price points, based on ordering ratio and popularity, that you should look for if buying. 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 format and remember to click on the links for previews. To find a comic shop near you, click here.
