Hey it’s my yearly ask to the community, need a bit of help to buy something for my toddlers long term collection from 2023
Spider boy is the runaway favourite. Anything else?
SWHR - any new characters people think have legs on the big screen?
Indies people love?
I love Batman- but not sure anything comes to mind…
What are your picks?
I think this year was pretty slim pickings but I’m a pretty big fan of Hallow’s Eve (ASM #14).
I love her design, character, powers. Eye catching imo.
Not saying she is the next Venom…but I believe she could have legs in the future. Clearly, she hasn’t just up and vanished as we’ve seen her since that run.
Funny thing…was at a recent convention and saw two different girls dressed up as her. I thought that was cool also.
We all know Hellverine is guaranteed money. Next UF4.
(Yes, I am joking).
ghost rider 44
are my 3 best longterm spec picks
Books from 2023? Slim pickings man.
skip 1st appearances, as 2023 sucked, and go for the high ratios (1:50, 1:100, 1:200 etc.) of books shops barely ordered
Probably won’t taste all that great long term…
But they won’t be back next year.
I still have two unopened packs if anyone is interested…
I have one in the freezer.
Here are some movers/shakers in 2023. Even if they didn’t pan out at least they kind of are represent the year like a time capsule.
What a sad year for spec 2023 has been
Not a ton. Spider-Boy… meh. Hallow’s Eve seems like the best bet of the year, but she may be too much of a one-trick pony.
A few others that did ok this year. Digging deep on a few of these:
My vote for best new series of 2023:
I didn’t realize the year had been so bad until looking at this post. It really was just an off year, guys.
At least there were some good stories this year even if there wasn’t good spec…
Black Panther #6 1:25… Next Tosin.
