Poyo's Spec for Sept 15th, 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

Black Widow #11 brings us a pretty cool Hughes regular cover.

Black Widow #11 (Edge Miles Morales 10th Anniv Variant)

Black Widow #11

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.

Eternals Thanos Rises #1 (Ron Lim Variant)
Eternals Thanos Rises #1 (Todd Nauck Headshot Variant)
Eternals Thanos Rises #1 (Dustin Weaver 1:25 Ratio Variant)

Eternals Thanos Rises #1

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.

Star Wars Darth Vader #16 (Villanelli Blueprint Variant WotBH)
Star Wars Darth Vader #16 (Sprouse Lucasfilm 50th Variant WotBH)

Star Wars Darth Vader #16 (WotBH)

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

Star Wars War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1

DC Picks

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).

Batman 89 #2 (of 6) (Cover B - Mitch Gerads Card Stock Variant)

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 Am Batman #1 (Cover A - Olivier Coipel)

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)

Star Wars High Republic Adv Monster Temple Peak #2 (of 4)

Godzilla Rivals vs Mothra (Cover A - Su) is just pure awesomeness but have you seen the Veregge Ratio Variant? That’s a winner for me, even if it doesn’t heat up.

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)

Primordial #1 (of 6) (Cover A - Sorrentino)

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.

I also enjoy Coipel’s covers but I just cannot get into The Next Batman / I Am Batman. I purchased all four issues in the Future State event and I struggled through them.

The Next Batman are just bad comics. Unreadable.

Yara Flor is a more interesting character than than Jace Fox and Tim Fox in my own opinion.What separates them apart from Bruce Wayne?I don’t find them that intriguing. Yara Flor is feisty and adventurous opposed to Diana who is stoic and reserved . Dc should be pushing for Yara Flor really hard because she could be their biggest money maker if done right way in the future.Yara Flor could be the female Miles Morales of DC .Here’s DC chance to make a Latina female character shine because there aren’t many really well known Latino Marvel or DC characters.

We were gonna get a show with Yara Flor, but suddenly any plans were canceled. It was a bummer.
