RIP George Romero! His legendary work in the zombie genre paved the way for many movies and comic books.

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

Gorgeous connecting cover variants by In-Hyuk Lee, these books picked up a little steam after the Black Order news broke. The buy in price might be too high to see a huge move up.

TMNT Universe #12 Whalen Variant

Drops this week!

Well Duh, if you read my article last week you knew this was coming!

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.

    It’s great to see Shadowman 13 doing that now without any mainstream publicity for Valiant yet. Cover and rarity aside, it houses Punk Mambo’s first appearance. I could see her as Valiant’s ‘Harley’ with respect to female popularity. Even the A and B covers should be good grabs with a 9K print run.

    Already one of the most expensive moderns out there, the hottest variant the last week was actually ASM 678 Venom/MJ variant. Multiple CGC 9.6 sales at $2400+, and a 9.8 CBCS copy sold for $4k.
