Default Indy's Comic Picks for 4.4.18

  • Deathstroke #30 – Deathstroke vs. Batman. Part 1. Mattina. It will sell out. No doubt.
  • Venomized #1 – Many variants to choose from.
  • Amazing Spider-Man #798 – 1st Full appearance of the Red Goblin. Huge key issue.
  • Marvel 2 in 1 #5 has a cool venom variant.
  • Thanos: Infinity Siblings #1 - Thanos is very popular, and this is written by Jim Starlin. I can see this one selling out quickly.
  • Batman #44 - both covers, batman wedding, should be popular.

Speed Racer Tip:
Isola #1

Blast from the Recent Past: Only a few weeks old, but Gideon Falls #1 by Jeff Lemiere is picking up steam. Great reviews and demand are pushing this book higher.

What else should we be looking for?

I feel a book that could possibly be a sleeper is "Isola #1" from Image Comics, which is a new ongoing series, the creators have quite a long vision for it if it does well. I was very impressed with it and perhaps with so much focus on ASM that people overlook it.

I agree, and now that great reviews are coming in, this could be a total sleeper like Monstress was as they both are being hailed for their art and story and Monstress took a few months to catch on, perhaps this one will follow like that one did. I'd recommend picking this one up.

Deathstroke #30, starting the new Batman vs. Deathstroke storyline has also sold out the Distributor and is also going to second printing.

Yes, I picked up one today due to your suggestion and enjoyed it. Is there a virgin variant?

Managed to find a LCS down here in the Panhandle...TBS Comics outside of Fort Walton Beach. Didn't prepare well for picking up books on the road, so I'm hoping I can securely pack them away for the drive home.

Among other pickups, snagged Isola #1, Xerxes #1, 2 ASM 798s (had a ton and no limit), and other DC variants.

Best pickup of the day: Guy Harvey long-sleeve performance t-shirt
These shirts are AWESOME and can be worn year-round; perfect for beaches or cool summer nights!

I picked up the best copy of 798 that was left at the LCS at lunch time. I have a few coming in the mail but I was hoping to snake one into my submission this weekend. Not sure the onemimpicked unis going to cut the mustard. I really thought this was going to be a cameo appearance and ordered heaviermon 799 with Red goblin on the cover.

Regarding Isola #1 when it was originally solicited there was just one cover, but then a cover "B" was announced via a Previews update. I think the Previews order form that cover "A" was in were already turned in by retailers. I know that some retailers overlook the Previews update so there "could" be fewer cover "B" ones out there than cover "A". I don't believe the distributor is sold out of either cover so if you want to get the cover "B" ask your LCS to order it while it is in stock.

This is a great tip, usually leads to higher value on the B covers when they do this and a book gets hot.
