Week in Review: March 18, 2020

.

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. Here are just some books that come out this week that I think are interesting.

.

For the last few weeks I’ve started each week in review article talking about the new Punchline character – and this week is no different as it sees the release of the Year of the Villain Hell Arisen #4 and Batman #91 – both books that have sold out at the distribution level and have been selling very well on the secondary market. Both covers of Year of the Villain Hell Arisen #4 have been selling for $20 plus while Batman #91 has been selling for $6 to $10.

We spoke about this book earlier this week and Nightwing #70 continues to dominate in presales online. Released this week Nightwing #70 is the first prelude story in the Joker War storyline. This book has been selling for $20 to $25.

The Image comic series Bitter Root took a ten month hiatus and when it returned last month it was a big surprise to see the one in ten variant cover start selling for $100+, with some sales even reaching $200. The variant cover for the last issue, Bitter Root #6 was a Do The Right Thing Movie Poster variant and this week sees the release of Bitter Root #7 and another movie poster variant cover. This time the one in ten variant cover for Bitter Root #7 has a big push by comic book speculators which has resulted in the book selling for $20+. If you can find a copy this is a good book to be holding on to.

Another Image comic book worth picking up this week is the Cover D for Spawn #306. Spawn #306 sees Phillip Tan joining the Spawn creative Team but this cover features the fan favorite character Gunslinger Spawn. This character hasn’t appeared in a Spawn book in some time and I believe fans will gravitate towards this cover.

Screaming Horror #1 was a horror magazine published in the early 90’s by Fantaco Publishing. This magazine featured artwork by Gurch Singh and sells very well on the comic book marketplace, selling for $50 to $100. This week Fantaco is releasing a brand new Screaming Horror #1 which will be a representation of the original material, each page re-lettered and “re-mastered” by Gurch Singh. This magazine has already sold out at the distribution level and has multiple sales above its $4.99 price tag indicating that it is definitely trending up.
