The Wednesday One for 5/13/15

wednesday

One book to rule the week

If you could only choose one comic book to buy from all the new comics being released this Wednesday, what would it be?

We ask the staff here at ComicBookInvest.Com the same question and their answers are sometimes surprising. Made up of a wide range of comic book speculators, enthusiasts, and ne’er-do-wells, the staff prides itself on being able to identify the worthy from the unworthy each Wednesday.

Here's what they had to say this week:

Walking Dead #141

Walking Dead #141

Mark C: Several new #1 books that I will certainly be checking out, but this is all about the one book that I MUST buy. For me, that's Walking Dead #141. Intriguing cover: CHECK! Riveting storyline over the last couple issues: CHECK! One word description of plot in advance publications: CHECK! (That one word was “Opportunity”). You can't miss this issue. You just CAN'T!

Keith S: Walking Dead #141 – Negan's free!!!

Secret Wars #2 Christopher Variant

Secret Wars #2 Christopher Variant

Mark H: Secret Wars #2 is my only read I think this week. I was pleasantly surprised by #1. I’ve got high hopes for this event.

Thor #8

Thor #8

Mark H: Thor #8 is coming with the identity reveal. If I had an LCS near me, I'd grab one and unload it immediately.

Shaun H: For spec, Thor 8 for the quick flip.

Carlos M: Thor #8, Thor to be revealed.

Khoi P: This one is going to get some major coverage.

SantosThor 8, only because of the hype and want to see how the whole the revelation is presented.

Silk #4

Silk #4

Santos: Silk 4, loved issues 1 to 3, cant wait for issue 4. Highly recommended!

Injection #1

Injection #1

Mantle #1 Cover B

Mantle #1 Cover B

Shaun H: For reading, I'll be checking Injection #1 and Mantle #1. Mantle has a nice cover from Phil Hester.Ricardo L: I'm a big Warren Ellis fan – Injection hits this week

Rob S: I'm a big fan too, but name me one speculator HIT with his name on it. I mean better then 2x cover.

Darth Vader #5 Larroca Variant

Darth Vader #5 Larroca Variant

Sean B: Darth Vader #5 Larrocca Variant for spec.

Saga #28

Saga #28

Keith S: Saga #28 – This is the best SciFi series on the rack. Will Marko be able to get his family back? And poor Prince Robot!

Mythic #1

Mythic #1

Convergence: Catwoman #2

Convergence: Catwoman #2

Inigo S: The one comic that picks my interest is Mythic #1. This team (Hester & McCrea) were the ones who gave us the very brilliant The Atheist, so I am in. As far as covers go, that Convergence: Catwoman looks really good. Claire Wendling is the cover artist, definitely in my radar now. DC, next time you move across the country, please just publish artbooks or portfolios, please …

That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!

    Darth Vader #5 promises to have a wholw cast of first appearances in it. Seems to be the best spec of the week to me. Especially with the way #3 exploded. People are paying attention to this series.

    Is the Larroca Variant limited? My LCS had a bunch of them, but with that all black cover, the edges were shredded.

    They also had a ton of the Wolverine Action Figure variants at Cover Price. I really expected them to do well, but the print runs seem too be higher than demand.

    I am new to the hobby, so forgive me if this is a ‘newbie’ question, but why is Thor #8 a quick flip? Wouldn’t such a major event justify this to be a valuable and collectible comic in the years to come?

    Thanks for any insight…

    Many think is a quick flip because of all the hype, personally i dont think is worth the time since im sure theres more than enough to go around. Down the road, 5 years or so I dont believe itll be a key book or anything, her 1st app will sure pick up some heat though. Just my 2 cents.
