Default Indy's Comic Picks for 5.23.18

Getting this one started early and will add to up all week.

Black Panther #1 Artgerm Variant - Artgerm variants are slow burns as far as value goes, but over time, this being issue #1 and Stanley doing more Marvel covers, it's sure one to have. Plus, it's gorgeous. There is a virgin version, but it's rather pricey. See if you can snag it in stores under $50

Black Panther #1 In-Hyuk Lee Variant - Hyuk is slowly becoming a fan favorite and this one will be scooped up immediately and will see good after market value.

Batgirl #23 Middleton Variant - Great art on this virgin variant by DC.

Venom #1 signed by Donny Cates - IndyKMB brought this to our attention, but there is a Mattina variant signed by Donny Cates up for sale at Midtown. 1 Per customer.

Thanks to you and IndyKMB for letting us know about the signed Venom! Just ordered one, it'll be my first signed book

Love these threads of yours, do you do them for every week?

Yes. Sometimes I may miss a week a few times a year, but typically have it up each week. I went to get another Black Panther #1 In-Hyuk this morning and noticed it's sold out on Midtown.

Midtown had #1's last night (both covers) for $1.80 too. They were scooped up pretty quick.

That Batgirl #23 Middleton variant is STUNNING. I've been picking up every single one of his variants since he began work on the Rebirth title and as good as many of the Aquaman Bs have been this is far-and-away his best effort.

Any chance of getting a grading order on this one, Indy?

I didn't pre-order this one, and when I went to the shop today they had ONE COPY on the shelf and the guy in front of me grabbed it.

If they come down in price I can get some elsewhere, but as of today the book is way too pricey to offer it at a decent price.

I picked up one copy and wondering if I should flip it now for 24 or will this come down in value with time? What are people's thoughts of it? So far I'm enjoying looking at it on my wall.

It's a gorgeous cover, but without any relevant story key action, it'll merely be an item for fans of the artist, which will limit it's appeal. If you're not married to it, move it now IMHO.

Now I'm reading that Batgirl #23 contains the first appearance of Martina Falcone. I don't know this to be true, but am doing research.

After I read the book, I have been searching and nothing has been coming up anywhere. So it is likely it is the 1st appearance. The read looks like it's worded as a 1st appearance.

I just posted this elsewhere today as well. Since I don't read Batgirl (just collect the Middleton covers!) when I thumbed thru I did notice this as well and wondered if a 1st was indeed snuck into the book. Hope that's the case because I'd hate to see this book slip into oblivion over time.

I ended up not being able to snag any of the Batgirl.....how the heck to shops get shorted on a comic by diamond if they ordered it? Seems to be plenty of copies on ebay. How the heck does that work?

It's not a comic with a high print run to begin with. Recent issues have a print run of around 17,596. With the Middleton being the variant, not all shops order them, and even if they ordered them 1 for every regular issue, that's only 8500 copies worldwide, so it's not one of the easier variants to find, and not all comic shops order the variant covers, which is a shame as DC is putting out some really nice ones right now. This scarcity could be why you're having such a tough time finding it. My shop only had 1 of the variant covers on the shelf day of release and I got there when the doors opened.

Don't be too hard on yourself, nobody can see these things coming 100% of the time unless they're ordering everything, every month. It's what makes the hunt so much fun! You'll find it eventually at a decent price. If I would have pre-ordered it myself I would have had you covered, but it's not a title I normally order and didn't this month.
