Indie Spotlight Series 38


Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of Indie Spotlight Series. This may arguably be the biggest Indie release week yet this year with so many good titles coming out! Lots of speculation opportunity as well if you can find the right books for the right price. Without any further delay let’s jump right in!


Canto 2


Well we all know what Canto 1 did and continues to do and I think this issue will follow a similar trajectory! Cover A is already selling for around $10 while the 1:10 incentive has broke the $30 mark. Great story that’s very adaptable in today’s world and amazing art is what has this series in high demand. I would not pass this book up for cover price or ratio for the incentive tomorrow if you see them.


1:10 Variant


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 6


Jennika, Jennika, Jennika!!! This one is all about the new female turtle and everyone is wanting to see how this goes down.  Some say that she is here to stay, and others say the death in issue 100 will be her.  Either way there is no denying the heat that she has brought back to TMNT. Covers A and B are both $10 books as I type this and the 1:10 is going for over $50.


1:10 Variant


G.I. Joe Real American Hero 265


This is the end of this arc for G.I. Joe and issue 266 is the start of something huge for Snake Eyes fans. I have a sneaky feeling though that IDW may slip something big in the back of this book as well though. Be on the lookout and keep your ear to the ground on this one. The 1:10 incentive has dried up on eBay and very few copies of covers A and B listed.  Be aware just in case.

1:10 Incentive


Knights Temporal 1


I absolutely love the premise for this story and can’t wait to see what Cullen Bunn does with it!  A crusader sent to modern day times by a curse sounds like something that could be very interesting. What also draws me to this book is the fact it will be the first 1:25 variant done by Aftershock Comics. This book is already pre selling for over $50.  This is the title I am most looking forward to reading this week.


1:25 Incentive


Gutt Ghost Till We Meet Again 1

Scout Comics

This is a book that Mel V from the Mighty Mel V youtube channel has championed hard since it was announced.  Very unique premise and I will be interested to see how it plays out! I would not sleep on this book either spec wise.  Cover A is going for $17 before shipping, while the secret Skull variant is being priced around $40 to $50. Be aware there are also Ashcans out there with different printings on them.
