Indie Spotlight Series 21

 

Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of I.S.S. This is not a huge week for comics but there are still some titles worth checking out for sure. Let’s get to it.

 

The Goon 1

Albatross Funnybooks

After a long hiatus Eric Powell is bringing back his hit character The Goon this week and I am stoked! The Goon and his sidekick Franky are back in full effect and Powell is supposed to take the series back to its grassroots humor. The Goon has a huge fan base and so does Powell so I would not sleep on this first issue and look at it as a long term hold. There will also be a cover B card stock variant from Kevin Nowlan that will be my pick of the week!

 

Littlebird 1

Image Comics

Very Intriguing to say the least by the teaser we got from the previews website. As war is approaching a mother hides her child in a bunker until the threat has passed. However,  all doesn’t go as planned. The child emerges days later to a scorched earth and utter destruction. Can’t wait to see how this one plays out. Image Comics has been on a roll lately as production companies are steadily looking for new and original ideas to adapt to the big screen. This one fits the bill from what I can tell and if it turns out to be a good read I may go back for more copies as long term holds.

 

Transformers 1

IDW

Really looking forward to this book as it’s the dawn of a new era. We get to see the world of Cybertron!! This will expose everyone to the home of the transformers and from what I can gather should have a first appearance of a new character in it is well. I think this is a series that will re-energize all transformer fans and I hope that it doesn’t disappoint. I love the 1:10 Incentive variant as well as the 1:25!  

 

Middlewest 2 Third Print

Image Comics

Yes thats right Im picking a issue 2 third print. New cover art, first appearance, great story and super low print run is why I will be picking this book up if I can find it. In case you haven’t been watching this series it is starting to catch some heat. Issue 1 is now over a $12  book while all issues are seeing good movement. This is another series that I would not sleep on!

 

Die 3 Second Print

Image Comics

I just can’t help myself on these later prints with different cover art. Die 3 second print is no exception. This series is on absolute FIRE right now with all issues selling well above cover price!!! I can’t say enough good things about the writing and artwork in this series. Movies would just be the tip of the iceberg as far as what you could do with this amazing premis. If you are not paying attention to what’s going on with this series you’re doing yourself a disservice. Be Aware!!!!

 

Worth A Read

 

Oliver 2

Image Comics

Hooked on this series already after issue 2!  The story is put together very cinematic and is LOOSELY derived from Charles Dickens Oliver Twist. The series is following a orphan boy with newly discovered physical attributes in a post apocalyptic world where genetically enhanced super soldiers were the norm. Issue 2 dives into the boys feelings and him wanting to fit in and be a part of his new family. However the only thing he is doing is endangering all of their existence. They live in a world where they are deemed useless and a plague by the outside world. No spoilers and I can’t recommend this book enough. Gary Whitta kills it with his world building and storytelling!!!!

Last Week’s Updates

 

Ronin Island 1

Boom Studios

Story was ok and the Young Variant cover caught some heat before falling back to an 8 book now. Not much movement on the other covers and the 1:15 is now under ratio.

 

Morning in America

Oni Press

Very little movement on this book on the secondary market and the story was very slow for me as well.

 

Once Our Land Book Two #1

Scout Comics

Some sales but nothing overwhelming by any means. There are very few on the secondary market though. I did not have a chance to read this one yet.

 

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic 75

IDW

Not a ton of sales but this one is a long term hold in my opinion. The 1:10 Variant is right at ratio price as I write this.

 

Astro Hustle 1

Dark Horse Comics

Cover B definitely heated up but is now back down to right above cover price. This is another one that I haven’t had a chance to read and would love to hear what people thought about it.

 

Thanks again for reading and I hope this helps out.

Andy
