Poyo's Spec for July 21st, 2021

Welcome to this weeks spec. This is where we pick the winners each week we (or shall I say myself) think will be spec worthy, a great read or just cool looking art on the cover.

Marvel Picks

Moon Knight #1. Expect big print run since he’s coming to Disney+ along with a bunch of variants. Buy the ones you like best, leave it at that. Maybe this will create new fans and give Moon Knight more exposure as a legit Marvel Universe character. Hunters Moon is suppose to make his first appearance in this issue. He’s the one you see on the cover of Moon Knight #3.

Moon Knight #1
Moon Knight #1 (Romita Jr Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Gist Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Zaffino Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Young Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Nauck Headshot Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Larraz Captain America 80th Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (David Mack TFAW Exclusive Variant - Trade Dress)
Moon Knight #1 (Hotz Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Torque Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Sienkiewicz Hidden Gem Variant)
Moon Knight #1 (Romita Jr Virgin Variant)

Savage Avengers #22 has what I’d call a really kick ass cover.

Alert Alert, new first appearance making their way into our beloved Star Wars Galaxy. Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Jabba Hutt #1 is a must pickup. The new gal is on the cover of the Chang variant but also the ratio variant (already seeing pre-sales at or over the $100 mark).

Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Jabba Hutt #1 (Headshot Variant)
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Jabba Hutt #1 (Chang Variant)

DC Picks

The new gal is on the cover of Legends of the Dark Knight Vol. 2 #3. I’m a fan of the Legends title.

Nightwing #81 2nd printing.

Indie and Small Publisher Picks

Tales from Harrow County Fair Folk #1
Tales from Harrow County: Fair Folk #1 (Tyler Crook Variant Cover) - This variant cover is sweet!

Bermuda #1 is a new Layman book. Heat or no heat, I enjoy Layman’s work.

Star Wars Adventures High Republic #6 is still a must pickup title for any Star Wars fan and for those who gamble on firsts, which could happen in any Star Wars title and issue at any moment.

While starting to read it, I was like… Hmmmmm… but after finishing reading the first issue, I was thinking, I really liked that. I’m talking about M.o.M. Mother of Madness #1.

TFAW still seems to have the 1:50 and 1:100 ratio variants available. I think Image went big with this one, hoping those Emilia Clarke fans who probably don’t even read comics seek this one out.

M.o.M. Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover A - Ratcliffe)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover B - Bartel)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover C - Leiz)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover D - Blank Cover)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover E - Panel Variant 10 Copy)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover G - Virgin Variant 50 Copy)
M.o.M Mother of Madness #1 (of 3) (Cover H - Andolfo Variant 100 Copy)

Radiant Black #6 doesn’t pick up where we left off. It dives into the back story of Red Helmet.

Dark Blood is a new BOOM! title I’ll be checking out.

Dark Blood #1 (of 6) (Cover A - De Landro)
Dark Blood #1 (of 6) (Cover B - Ba)
Dark Blood #1 (of 6) (Cover C - De Landro Variant 10 Copy)
Dark Blood #1 (of 6) (2nd Ptg Alleyne) -Yes, there’s a 2nd printing, not out this week but is on FOC this Monday.

White #1 gets a Second Print. Already sold out, a few sold already around the $20 mark on eBay and one has it listed for $50 already.

The, “White,” second printing was not limited. Shouldn’t there be plenty?

I stopped buying, flipping, reading caring about any Black Mask book myself.

They have to have been ordered for there to be a lot. I got my pre-orders in, but my guess is there are a TON of stores just like Poyo here that don’t even look at Black Mask. I got more than one email on my dozens of cancelled pre-orders for the first print that they won’t be dealing with Black Mask ever again.

I doubt there will be plenty of these for the immediate demand, but in a couple months it should be easy to grab one if you want it… Unless something actually happens with the rights to Black.

I believe, “Black,” is getting made into a movie. It was at one studio and they did nothing so they sold the rights to another, maybe?

I hope something happens…

Bought these off Black Mask’s website for cover price a few weeks ago. There’s plenty out there. “2500 copy print run” my ass…lol

So, I had pre-orders at legitimately 15 different stores and every one of them said they got 1 or zero. Black Mask could be lying I guess, but I’m pretty sure that print run is 2500. They could have had some set aside for direct purchase and you got in at the right time, so it seems impossible, but I had over 100 copies pre ordered and got zero. My pre-orders were placed in March.

Over 100 pre-ordered… Why? You believe that much in black mask comics?

Because it was limited to 2500 and I knew I would get nowhere near 100. It was also the most obvious book to pop immediately that would release this year.

The immediate $100 price tag and current $50 price tag would indicate that I was wrong and I didn’t pre-order nearly enough. Easiest flip of 2021… if you actually ended up with them.

A 2500 LTD print run follow up to an optioned book about a world where only black people have superpowers… yeah, I thought that would be worth buying AS MANY as I could for $3.
