Indie Spotlight Series 39

 

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Indie Spotlight Series. The last few weeks have been a speculators dream and this week is shaping up to be no different with several books already selling for over cover out of the gate. Let’s not waste any time and jump right in!

 

Dead End Kids 1

Source Point Press

Source point press is primed to have another title selling very strong on the aftermarket with Dead End Kids written by Frank Gogol releasing this week.  So far this book has seen a sale of $35 for the regular cover and more around $20. There are also some convention ashcans and variants to issue 1 that are selling well over $50.  Don’t sleep on this book tomorrow.  

The premise is a group of troubled and eccentric kids faced with the accidental death of someone in their group.  Well I guess it’s not just someone, its their so called leader, the one everyone looked up to.  But the real question is was it really an accident like the police said?  

I have had the privilege of reading this book courtesy of the writer and I have to say it does not disappoint and I can’t wait for issue 2!

 

 

The Dark Age 1

Red 5 Comics

Red 5 Comics has been making some noise lately with media deals and this book is supposedly already in development for T.V. or the big screen.  The fact that this book is written by Don Handfield (The Source , The Mall, The Rift ) makes this a must have for me. Handfield has strong ties to Hollywood and I think it’s a matter of time before all of his titles catch even more heat.  The 1:10 incentive variant is selling for over $20 as of now and the cover A is going for $7 to $8.  This is one I would not pass up for cover.  There is also a FCBD preview of this that may be one to watch.

 

 

Coffin Bound 1

Image Comics

Coffin Bound 1 from Image Comics has definitely been my surprise of the week so far.  I admittedly slept on this book on pre orders and am kicking myself as the A cover is now going for over $10.  There are also some limited variants that are selling very well.  The premise is an outcast girl who goes off the deep end and is leaving a trail of scorched earth behind her. Her only way out is DEATH and she’s ready. Definitely another one to watch tomorrow.

 

 

TMNT 95 Second Print

IDW

New cover art for this book makes this one a must have for me.  I’m one of the ones that thinks 95 is the book to have over 96, so take that into consideration as well. This is Jennika’s first appearance as a turtle and the first print is still selling for over $25.  I think this book will be heavily ordered though so don’t expect it to heat up instantly.

 

 

HOPE A Comic For Flint

Source Point Press

Big props to Source Point Press for this book.  I’m sure everyone is aware of the water crisis in Flint Michigan, as it is still an ongoing struggle. If you aren’t, go watch the documentary on Netflix.  It’s moving to say the least.  ALL PROCEEDS from this book go to the Flint Water Crisis and that is a stand up move by Publisher Travis Mcintire of Source Point!  Hats off to you guys and gals!  Ask your local LCS to order this book and you will be helping out a great cause and hey it’s already selling for over $5 bucks on eBay.

Last Week’s Updates

 

 

Canto 2

IDW

Great read!  Still about a $10 to $12 book on the aftermarket for cover A and the incentive is over $25.

 

TMNT 96

IDW

Regular covers going from $5 to $10 and the incentive is going for less than $40.  I think the market has decided on 95 being the book to have .

 

G.I. Joe Real American Hero 265

IDW

No heat on this one as the variant is the only book selling ok. It has now dropped to around $20.

 

Knights Temporal 1

Aftershock

I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait for issue 2.  I think these books will do well over time.  The amount of store variants hurt this book on the secondary market.

 

Gutt Ghost 1

Scout Comics

This book is definitely worth checking out if you are an adult swim fan.  If not, it’s probably not for you.  This book did extremely well on the secondary market. Cover A going for $8 to $10 while the secret variant is going for $25 plus.

 

Love She Offered

Source Point Press

This one caught me off guard for sure.  Great story about a father seeking out the truth about what happened to his murdered daughter.  Selling for $15 plus on the secondary market!

 

 

As always, good luck out there tomorrow and thanks for reading!

Andy
