Welcome to the NEW Wednesday Warriors!
Each week we will go head to head picking just ONE book in each category in a battle for NCBD supremacy. Best of all, you get to pick the winner! Sound off in the comments if you’re #TeamSimpleman or #TeamBolo and we will recap each week in the following weeks Column.
So its Brian vs. Jack.
Simpleman vs. Bolo.
And there can be only ONE.
Most Looking Forward to Reading Marvel
Most Looking Forward to Reading DC
Most Looking Forward to Reading Indie
We live in the age of the option with option news driving spec like no other time. I'm all about checking out a new Indie from a great publisher like Boom! Studios. This one stood out since previews came out a few months back.
I'm not the biggest Dynamite Comics fan, but I am a Parrillo fan. His covers for Vampirella and Red Sonja always command value down the road. This is a buy and stash book.
Regular Price Variant Marvel
I’m a big fan of Stephanie Hans’ art and I love this cover! This is a cover I’ll stash in a long box and wait. Later on, fans of her work that didn’t pick this up on release will be wanting it.
Mark Brooks is severely underrated as he regularly turns out stellar cover art. These Carnage variants can be redundant but Brooks puts out a standout offering this week.
Regular Price Variant DC
Bendis and Maleev make up a great creative team. I’m anxious to see the effects this mini-series has on the DC Universe going forward. Add Fabok on the cover art and we have a winner. If this was a Marvel book it would easily be a 1:25 incentive.
I am really excited for these DC Villain portrait variants. I like this one best but also dig the Ras Al Ghoul one dropping today as well. We had been seeing Artgerm fatigue in the hobby but Lau seems to have hit his stride here as the next few Catwoman releases are just stunning.
Regular Price Variant Indie
This is one crossover I’ve been looking forward to for awhile! I’m more excited for Black Hammer than I am Justice League and Jeff Lemire has created a great universe for both teams to play in so it’s only natural I pick up his variant for it.
I am very bullish about this Necessary Evil Power Rangers story. Let us not forget that Arune Signh (Boom! VP of Marketing) twice on the Indie Spotlight Series Show on Simpleman's Comics YouTube Channel called a Bolo Audible and talked about this book. Im going to take his word for it and bet big for the long term.
Top Spec Pick
The popularity of Wolverine, the excitement of Blade, and the demand for Dell’Otto combined with the cover being an incentive are all reasons this book will be sought after. Demand will exceed supply makes this the book of the week. Store variants could hurt this book’s popularity though.
