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.
Black Widow #11 brings us a pretty cool Hughes regular cover.
I love a good Thanos story, even if it’s only a one-shot so Eternals Thanos Rises #1 is on my hit list. Plus I love Ribic’s work so that’s a bonus.
Iron Man #12 Miles Morales 10th Anniversary Variant by Rahzzah (which was open order) is a no brainer pick up if you see them out in the wild on Wednesday since these are already selling above cover price.
Star Wars Darth Vader #16 (WotBH) is the no brainer pickup for any Vader and Star Wars fan along with the current WOTBH story line, anything can happen spec wise with these.
Another tie-in for War of the Bounty Hunters is Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1. Must have them all right? I know I do.
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1 (Noto Variant)
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1 (Blueprint Variant)
Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1 Khary Randolph 1:25 Variant
If you’re a fan Batman from 1989 movie, you’re likely already on top of Batman 89 #2 (of 6) (Cover A - Joe Quinones).
Is anyone reading I Am Batman #1 (Cover A - Olivier Coipel)? I ask cause I’m up on the fence on whether I should pick these up or not. Either way, I’m digging the covers for these which is why they make the picks this week.
I Am Batman #1 (Cover B - Greg Capullo Card Stock Variant)
I Am Batman #1 (Cover C - Francesco Mattina Card Stock Variant)
I Am Batman #1 (Cover D - Team Gabriele Dell Otto Card Stock Variant)
I Am Batman #1 (Kael Ngu 1:25 Variant)
I love Stokoe’s art so this is a definite pick for Joker #7 James Stokoe Variant.
Indies and Small Publisher Picks
I shouldn’t have to explain so I’m just not gonna for Star Wars High Republic Adv Monster Temple Peak #2 (of 4)
I’ve already read the first issue and found it delightful. Lemire rarely disappoints but Primordial #1 (of 6) is a definite pick coming out of Image Comics. Lots of variants and covers for this one with ratios as well.
Primordial #1 (of 6) (Cover B - Ward)
Primordial #1 (of 6) (Cover C - Nguyen)
Primordial #1 (of 6) (Cover D - Shimizu)
Primordial #1 (of 6) (Cover E - Blank Cover)
Primordial #1 (Cover F Incentive Andrea Sorrentino Virgin)
Primordial #1 (Cover G Incentive Andrea Sorrentino Raw Black & White Virgin)
Primodrial #1 (Cover H Incentive Moon Footprint Variant)
Primordial #1 (Cover I Incentive Jeff Lemire Variant)
Already sold out at most online retailers from a quick check, Nobodys Child #1 is a new book I was looking forward to in reading as I’m big on saving endangered animals (I always root for the animals when poachers are trying to kill them), this one has that but with a twist.
Eat the Rich #1 2nd Printing is out this week for you additional printing junkies who must have them all. You can still find the first printings available currently at TFAW and likely other retailers. Could be one to watch if this series takes off if retailers are still trying to dump off first prints and didn’t bother with the 2nd prints.
