Week in Review: September 29
Another week, another post. Here are two great talking points.
This first one comes from the Google Plus Group The Comic Book Mint who first made me aware of this. News came out yesterday that DMC (from Run DMC) short for Darryl Makes Comics, Graphic Novel DMC was being developed by Matthew Vaughn (of Kick-ass) for the big screen. This is weird, but in a world where Hip Hop Family Tree is being developed into a TV-Show its not that weird. Right now there is a revision for Hip-Hop within the Comic Book community. DMC will be at New York Comic Con (in Artist Alley) offering his comics for sale, DMC has done several conventions and has four comic con variant covers of the book – all featuring material that was not reprinted in the mass-marketed DMC #1. The book to look for is the first Convention Variant, the DMC #0 Baltimore Comic Con Variant from 2014 – Limited to 100 copies, all signed and numbered. This features the first appearance of the book AND is the lowest print run of any of the DMC books.
A book I briefly touched on last week is now heating up, The Pitiful Human Lizard published by Chapter House Comics (The Publisher responsible for bringing back Captain Canuck). The most recent sale of a Cover A The Pitiful Human Lizard #1 is $15! This is an all-ages book based in Toronto written and Drawn by Jason Loo. With an average sale price of $10 and two 1:10 ratio variants – The Pitiful Human Lizard #1 is one to be keeping an eye out for. The Two mini China Town Ashcans, that were limited to 200 copies each and distributed around Toronto at Jason Loo signings and Comic Con appearances are also books that should see an increase in value.
