#CBSIBOLO List For NCBD 9/11/19
What Is The #CBSIBOLO List?
The Bolo List was created, initially, as an Instagram exclusive piece of content I dubbed comics cliff notes. A cheat sheet of sorts, the purpose of the Bolo list is to give CBSI Nation the most up to date information as LCS doors open on NCBD.
The Bolo list is not a list of books you should buy or books that will rise in value. It's simply a reporting of what we are seeing in social media response and chatter, talk within our community, initial Ebay sales, as well as communication with retailers and posted online spoilers.
Similarly, every 1st appearance in a given week may not be covered. We only list first appearances that are confirmed first hand or by multiple reputable sources PRIOR to NCBD. No delineation will be made for full vs. Cameo Appearance as it is for the market to decide and that can not be done until after the books have hit on release day.
The Bolo List is ⅓ of CBSI's NCBD attack with Simpleman's Weekly Picks and The Wednesday One. I am very happy to be bringing the Bolo List to ComicBookInvest.Com and all our readers. Be sure to follow us on IG (@comicbookinvestcbsi) for other Exclusive CBSI BOLO content.

AKA Mr. BOLO'S Long Term Play
FOR THIS WEEK'S BACK ISSUE BOLO….
With today’s release of Pandemica, my long term pick of the week, I figured I would give some context as to why I think this one is a winner.
This pick has everything to do with writer Jonathan Mayberry. He has become a go to creator for IDW. He is a novelist by trade and a multi time NY Times Bestseller.
He came onto the scene with V Wars. V Wars was a hot seller and a winner out the gate. It featured a Cover B by Kevin Eastman (TMNT Co Creator) and had two high ratio incentives. It has already been optioned by Netflix and is due to hit the streaming service very soon.
He also brought his popular Novel series Rot & Ruin to IDW. It too was hot straight out of the gate. It boasts a Cover A, Cover B, and a 1:10 Incentive. It also has been optioned and is in production as of April for either TV or a feature length movie.
His third series and the only not optioned of the bunch is Road of the Dead: Highway to Hell. It was immediately popular and dried up quickly but hasn’t quite seen secondary market returns.
BOLO for IDW’s website which has both Cover A and Cover B. But this book is a good case study because while it may have been the least successful of the three, the incentive 1:10 goes for $25 and gives you an idea of what Pandemica is looking like. I would imagine that is the floor price for the release with the sky being the ceiling. It may start out lower offerings will dry up.
So Be On The Lookout for V Wars (time is running out!), Rot & Ruin , and even Road of the Dead. Jonathan Mayberry has the midas touch and the ear of Hollywood.
