Week in Review: November 6

Space
Hello and welcome to the week in review on Comicbookspeculation.com – home of the original week in review – where we go over all of the hot books being released to comic book stores this week. These books are being released on November 6, 2019.

This week seems to be heavily based around variant covers and second / third printings – although there is one non-variant I’d like to talk about. This week sees the release of Undiscovered Country #1. The film rights to this comic have already been sold to New Republic pictures – something we spoke about back in September. While I don’t think this weeks release will see any traction on the secondary market I do think the first appearance of the series, the ashcan, and the New York Comic Con variants that predate this weeks release will continue growing in interest as future issues are released.

Another book that is on my radar that comes out this week is the Spawn #300 third printing. This book features an emerald green Amazing Spider-Man #300 homage cover – while this cover has been over-used on Spawn Books this one has the potential of having a very small print run. One other later printing of a book that I think is worth picking up this week is the Immortal Hulk #24 Second Printing. This book’s cover art features an incredible Alex Ross Pencil sketch cover. As of posting this neither the Spawn #300 Third Printing or the Immortal Hulk #24 Second Printing have sold above their cover prices on the secondary market.

Hot off the release of the new animated Addams Family movie this week IDW is publishing the comic book – Addams Family Bodies Issue #NN. This is a one-shot and it is the first adapatation of the new Addams family universe. I’m not sure how many stores ordered copies of this book but there is a one in ten variant cover that I think it worth looking for. This should be a book that is very under the radar and I’m not sure how many stores would order ten copies of this book.

Another variant cover that I think is worth looking for is the one in fifty “Hidden Gem” variant cover for Yondu #1. This book features a different version of Yondu than the one that appeared in the Guardians 3000 comic book. This book also features the death of Kraglin of the Ravagers – a character that was played by Sean Gunn in the Guardian of the Galaxy films. So far there have been two sales of the 1 in 50 variant – one for $70 and one for $90.

Marvel has been releasing a steady stream of hidden gem variants. These books feature reused artwork. Another hidden gem variant that comes out this week is for the new X-Force #1 – this book features a cover by Todd Mcfarlane. This is a 1 in 100 ratio variant cover and has been selling for $140 to $150.

One last variant cover I want to talk about is the one in fifty Jen Bartel Variant cover for Spider-man and Venom Double Trouble #1. This is a four part all-ages mini-series based around Spider-Man and Venom. The high end ratio variant cover has been selling just above its cover price at around $60.
