It’s cold, miserable, and wintery outside, but that’s ok; it’s comic book week 11.13.2019 today, and I’m looking forward to some good reads in bed tonight. It’s a big week for me, personally, as a few titles sound very interesting…so my budget it blown away. No key collecting this weekend!
My personal targets this week are the following:
- Black Stars Above 1 – this Vault Comics’ series sounds like there is an encounter with some type of cosmic horror hidden in some type of wooded area…sounds Lovecraftian. I’m in.
- Family Tree 1 – Jeff Lemire’s new Image title featuring a young woman who is growing into a tree and her family’s attempt to find a cure by travelling the back roads of America
- Folklords 1 – this Boom! title sounds curious…sort of like an investigator searching for glimpses of manifestations of the collective unconscious (or simple high strangeness…or maybe both??)
- Tales from the Dark Multiverse – Blackest Night 1 – sounds like this will feature Sinestro as a Limbo Lantern…something caught between life and death
- Far Sector 1 – I doubt I’ll have a shot at the variants, and will settle for the a cover today…this will feature the first appearance of a new Green Lantern named Sojourner Mullein
As I said, it’s a big week for me. I’d flip some of these below if I could to assist with the budget, but I won’t have any luck finding them – I do hope you do, however.
Picks for Flips
Far Sector 1 B Cover Shawn Martinbrough
The next hot Naomi type DC character? It could very well be, and there is already buzz that a Green Lantern show will feature this character in the future. This issue is getting $12 USD, with new listings in the $15 USD range.
Far Sector 1 C Cover Jamie McKelvie
Also getting $12 USD on eBay…one new listing is already at +$30 USD. Unbelievable.
Marvel Action Spider-Man 11 B Cover Jonboy Meyers
Already clearing $50 USD…lest I remind you his 1:10 10 B cover was going for over $125 USD at one point.
Marvel Tales Doctor Strange 1 B Cover Inhyuk Lee Virgin
Not much sales data on this one, but if you see it cheap, snag it up. Current listings are over $120 USD.
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl 50 B Cover Rahzzah
This isn’t tearing out of control in terms of price, but you should be able to double your money with this one today.
That’s it for another week; let me know what I missed! I’d highly recommend the new Lantern book for everyone’s long term collection, especially if you can get it at cover price. And good luck with that new Jonboy Venom/Spidey cover! I’d love to get my hands on both of them, but that ship has long, long, long passed…
