This week starts what I hope will become a regular feature on my site where I choose my comic picks of the week - whether it be for speculation or for reading.
Looking over the books released this week I've highlighted 3 that I think have potential.
Star Wars #7 - John Tyler Christopher Action Figure Variant Cover
Regular visitors to this site will know I'm a big fan of the Star Wars Action Figure Variant run.
This week sees a Stormtrooper cover come into the fold.
These covers rarely stick around for long - and I had this issue down as a hot comic just the other week.
I will personally be picking up several of these for my collection.
This particular issue is set to centre around a one-off tale on Ben Kenobi.
You can still get these at cover now from Forbidden Planet on the link below -
Sex Criminals #11 - Regular Cover
Much like Star Wars #7 this was a book I recommended picking up some time back.
What's really intriguing about this book is that the regular covers will come polybagged with 1000 blank covers being thrown into the print run randomly that will feature a sketch by Chip Zdarsky & Matt Fraction.
Because of this demand is high as people chance trying to find one! I've ordered a number of these with the hope of tracking a sketch down!
It's not to late to get in on the mix with Forbidden Planet still taking pre-orders on the link below. If you do pull a sketch cover out let me know in the comments section!
The Shrinking Man #1
Last but not least this week comes 'The Shrinking Man'
This book is a outside bet for me personally but it would seem to have been a popular choice in the U.S. Market already and steady sales are being recorded.
With a regular cover and a couple of variants to pick up I will probably only get a couple of copies of each.
Forbidden Planet still has these up for pre-order - the link for the variant cover is below.
So that concludes my 'Picks of the Week' - there are no guarantees these will go up in value - but look at the worst case scenario you get a good read!
Happy New Comic Book Day for tomorrow everyone!
