Comic Broker Report – December 2014

Deadpool Hawkeye 0 Variant

The variant for this  has a terrible cover but Marvel decided to include something very strange in this comic.  As Hawkeye surveys what appears to be a Cosplay street party both the new female Thor and Spider-Gwen pass him buy.  Is this the first appearance of Gwen Stacy from an alternate Universe in that sick new costume?  Collector’s disagree and only time will tell but the fact is this book is the first appearance of the Spider-Gwen costume and it’s one of the more popular in recent memory.

Suicide Squad 48 ( first Joker cover in Suicide Squad )

This collector is very skeptical of Jared Leto’s casting as the Joker.  It’s not because I don’t like his acting but putting the Joker in an ensemble cast seems like a mistake to me.  Either way any Joker connection to the squad is going to heat up the back issue market as proven by the HQ announcement.

Fairy Tale Parade 9 ( First appearance of  the Snow Queen ) and first appearance of  Elsa

As one of the more popular Disney characters in the last 20 years picking up the Snow Queen’s first is a smart move,

if you can find it.

Gotham by Gaslight

This classic work by Mignola features the first appearance of the Gaslight DCU.  The Lex Luthor from that world will be playing a huge role in Fight for the Multiverse.

Deadpool Origins

Do people ever get tired of spending enormous sums of cash on Deadpool comics?  The answer still appears to be no.  This one-shot has escaped my clutches for some time and is now racking up big sale numbers on Ebay.

BOOM! STUDIOS LAUNCHES REGULAR SHOW COMIC BOOK THIS APRIL

YEAH YUH! After teasing us with a silhouetted image of Cartoon Network’s leading slackers, Mordecai and Rigby, BOOM! Studios has come forth with the official press release for a REGULAR SHOW ongoing series for their kids imprint, KABOOM! Since losing the publishing rights to the Disney Titles to the now Disney Owned MARVEL, BOOM! has done quite well with their adaptation of Cartoon Networks other quirky hit, ADVENTURE TIME, including an ongoing and two (so far) Spin-off mini-series.

BOOM! STUDIOS LAUNCHES REGULAR SHOW COMIC BOOK THIS APRIL
January 28, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – This April, KaBOOM! Studios, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, launches REGULAR SHOW, an all-new, all-ages ongoing comic book series based on the smash hit Cartoon Network animated series created by J.G. Quintel. The highly anticipated series will be written by web cartoonist K.C. Green (GUNSHOW) and illustrated by newcomer Allison Strejlau.
Join Mordecai, a blue jay and Rigby, a raccoon, a couple of best bros in their twenties just tryin’ to chill for a bit, man. But when you’re livin’ in as crazy a world as they are, no day can be called…regular!

“It’s exciting to be able to work on this comic as I am a fan of the show. Probably the funnest part is going back over the episodes again for inspiration (and just enjoying them also
),” commented writer Green, “Plenty of ideas popping up just working on writing them down and getting the voices of each character just right. That is important, especially with this project.”
REGULAR SHOW #1 ships in April with main covers by Nick Edwards (ADVENTURE TIME), Nathan Fox (X-MEN: SECOND COMING), Phil McAndrew (ADVENTURE TIME, BRAVEST WARRIORS), John Allison (ADVENTURE TIME: MARCELINE AND THE SCREAM QUEENS), Noelle Stevenson (ADVENTURE TIME: FIONNA & CAKE) and Chuck BB (CTHULHU TALES, BCBG).
Ask your retailer about the pre-order variant by Chris Houghton (ADVENTURE TIME, REED GUNTHER) and the incentive variant by Dustin Nguyen (BATMAN, L’IL GOTHAM)! Additionally, a commemorative boxed set of all six main covers will be available for collectors.

“I’m really excited to see Regular Show in comic form,”
added creator Quintel. “Can’t wait to see what K.C. Green does with it. As someone who also only has two letters for a first name, I’m sure he’s going to make it awesome.”

REGULAR SHOW #1 is a 32 page, full color issue that retails for $3.99 and is available for order under Diamond Code FEB130826-28.
The REGULAR SHOW #1 COMPLETE COVER BOX SET contains REGULAR SHOW #1 Covers A-F in a shrink-wrapped commemorative slipcase that retails for $24.99 and is available for order under Diamond Code FEB130829.
