First You May Have Missed :Jinny Hex & Teen Lantern
Move over teen titans young justice is back and ready to play with some all new additions to the team. A new lantern and a shot-gun wielding Texan. Todays first you may have missed Jinny Hex and Teen Lantern.
Jinny Hex is the great great-granddaughter of Jonah Hex. Not much is known as she is fresh into the D.C. comics scene but she didn't actually appear 1st in this weeks Young Justice #1. Jinny Hex first appeared in the 100 page giant batman #4 (you remember those straight to Walmart comics?). Although brief in the story she has a short dialog with Batman himself.
Her name is given and she appears in a bunch of panels which ends with her pulling out a photo of her great great-grandfather. Her appearance in young justice is also brief but with Bendis behind her who knows where she can go. Young Justice is spearheading the new Wonder Comics imprint from D.C. and the animated series is trying to continue its beloved status with a new season so it's very possible hex can make an appearance at some point.
Teen Lantern, perhaps its too early to even call this a first as we don't get any actual images or dialog from Teen lantern* besides one of the many covers for Young Justice #1. Maybe we will chalk this one up as a cameo/first cover and revisit later. Another hero controlled by Bendis and if Miles, Jessica Jones, Riri Williams, or even Quake are any indication of what his characters can do in terms of spec and value then this is worth a look.
*There was another character that went by the name Teen Lantern from the 31st century, this appears to be someone else.
100 page giant Batman #4. 1st appearance of Jinny Hex, no idea how many of these are printed or are in a grade worth getting. If you can find them its an easy pick up but finding them with Walmart's horrible stocking practices is the hard part. If you have a chance at a clean copy for less than $10 i would snap it up.
Young Justice #1 1st appearance (cameo) of teen lantern and first cover of Jinny Hex. I would grab the covers featuring Teen Lantern for spec, but that Chew impulse cover is amazing so i grabbed that for my PC. These are available for cover price everywhere right now.
Thanks for reading everyone, short one today but the next few weeks will be treats as i dig deep into my speculator bag so stay tuned and remember “its better to have first and flip then to never have first at all” — Valiant Horton.
