The title of this book always catches my eye when I’m in the store but I’ve never grabbed one. Today the trade was available for $8 so I thought I would give it a try. Brought it to work for some lunch break reading so 🤞🏻. #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#igcomics
Some cool pick ups from today’s @infinityccnj2018 . Alpha Flight 1, Some early @jscottcampbellart with Danger Girl 1, and a cool book bought directly from and signed by the writer @dbenne20 Quixote 1, was a fun read and he was a super nice guy. He’s also selling other stuff at his table with half the proceeds going to charity so go stop by!! I’ll post my other two big pick ups later! #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#alphaflight#dangergirl
This @mikedeodato cover of Thanos Legacy from NYCC is amazing. Wasn’t gonna throw another post up tonight but I had to bag this one in a new Mylar and just couldn’t help but to grab a pic. Remember bright and early tomorrow is the Infinity Comic Con @infinityccnj2018 so set your alarms and bring a backpack!!! #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomics
Some more of the comics for the week. Tried not to repeat the higher incentive variants I posted earlier during the week. My top picks for cover/story are:
Moon Knight #200 (Finch var) - don’t know where this last issue will leave the character so always interested to see what stops they pull out.
Spider Girls #1 - the regular cover is by Yasmine Putri who has been on a fire streak. The incentive covers are also gorgeous. I don’t think the speculators have much to gain here as the other Spidergeddon related variants have floundered on the resale market. But for Art fans these covers are worth it if you can get them at half ratio or better!
Ghost Spider #1 - as I said in my last post all the covers are amazing. You can walk in and grab an art germ at cover and you’ll be satisfied. I guarantee it.
Sentry #5 - I’ve personally always enjoyed the Sentry but I know I fall in the minority. I’ve enjoyed this series so far and am curious as to the long term complications of the characters current changes.
I don’t really want to create YouTube content but it can be difficult to fit so many titles into a minute window. I’ll do what I can, and if you have any questions about a fast moving slide just let me know. #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#comicbooks#ncbd#comicbookwednesday
As The revered and intellectually respected Peter Griffin would say, “You know what really grinds my gears???”. The second print of The Rejected sold out on the Source Point @sourcepointpress website in record time at $5.99. Only to be immediately reposted on eBay at huge mark ups. This is why I like brick and mortar stores. This is why I respect the Local Comic Shop. Bc the stores I go to have integrity. Bc they sell books the week of release at cover price. Bc they appreciate the READER. Bc they don’t hold all the books in the back waiting to jack up prices. Bc they won’t sell multiple copies of a hot book to someone Bc they value ALL their customers. I love comic books, but I don’t always love the speculation game. I don’t appreciate people who don’t even read the books that are just chasing a profit. Just my two cents. Just my vent for the day. If I’m talking about you and you’re offended let me know. If you agree with me let me know. If you don’t care at all let me know. #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#comicbooks
Ronan is a great “bad guy” and i think he’s been portrayed really well in film. This FF 65 is his first appearance. I think people who just follow the marvel movies or even some readers don’t realize how MANY huge characters made their first appearances in the pages of the Fantastic Four! #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#fantasticfour#ronantheaccuser
If you’re in the NY/NJ area OR you have the day free tomorrow and want to take a nice drive then def come check out the @infinityccnj2018 Infinity Comic Con. Co hosted by @gothamunderground . Expecting to see some good stuff there!!! #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly
Comics are for the escapist. It’s such an amazing opportunity to see wild fantasies sort of come to life. It takes away monotony, it helps lift a rainy day, and for a few beautiful moments it’s a reminder of how powerful imagination can be. I love comics. I love older books. I love this fantasy. And if you follow me then I know you agree!!! Happy Saturday! Go buy some comics, or read some comics, or come here and we can talk about comics!! #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily
Good read, and seems to be getting a lot of traction out there according to @comictom101 and @comicbookinvestcbsi . @sourcepointpress has been putting out a lot of quality stuff this year, stop sleeping on these independent publishers man! #igcomicfam#igcomicfamily#geekresponsibly
I'm about to go live on my YouTube channel (Fire Guy Ryan, don'tchaknow) with hour 10 of my first play through of Spider Man PS4. Experience this game with me for the first time. It's rad. Unless you're gonna spoil it for me, then go away!
Learned another one today, and that is that Thursday is #thorsday ? So here’s a cool Greg Land virgin cover for issue 700. I remember reading this and basically missing the entire tiny two page spread that had Galactus with the necro sword power. It’s crazy to realize the end of yesterday’s Thor 6 has been teased by Jason Aaron for over a year! Loki with the necrosword was shown as a vision in Civil War II Ulysses, it was shown in a drawing for Thor 700, and the Galactus vs ego was started there as well. So intrigued to see where it all goes! #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#thor#necrosword#loki
I say it’s NEVER too early to look ahead. So don’t waste any of your extra change on Starbucks or beer this weekend Bc next Wednesday (10/24) is flush with pretty stuff. Consider your wallet warned and peep these early favorites for Cover of the Week!!!!
1. Wonder Woman 57 (Frison Cover B). If you thought 56 was a great cover then get ready to change your pants..
2. Batgirl 28 (Middleton Cover B) if you were disappointed by the last couple Middleton’s then this should be a happy pick up for you. One of the prettiest since 23.
3. Spider Gwen aka Ghost Spider 1. This is the 1:100 so good luck. But to be honest I think EVERY Cover including the regular price battle lines and art germ are gorgeous.
4. Return of Wolverine 2. This is the 1:500 Moebius variant. I laughed as I typed that. I won’t spend that kind of money. But damn is it pretty. The 1:50 Bradshaw is the more affordable dope cover option. Has a real animated series vibe. And you can’t beat Logan on a motorcycle.
5. Moon Knight 200. This is the last issue of Moon Knight for now until the RUMORED post Marvel Knights Donny Cates relaunch. This is the 1:25 Tan Cover. There’s also a regular priced Finch that’s pretty. I’d stay away from the 1:50 and the higher ratio remastered stuff. Doesn’t hold its value. And aren’t exceptionally nice.
6. Black Panther vs Deadpool 1. This is a 5 part mini I believe. Not sure if I want to read it. Depends how my stack looks. The regular cover and the Cully Hamner variant are expectedly fun (Deadpool’s running with a bag of candy in the latter) but this 1:50 Granov variant is normal Granov exceptionalism.
7. Lodger 1. This is a new title from Black Crown. I’ve enjoyed Euthanauts and House Amok put out by them this year. And this title comes from the same creator of Stray Bullets. This particular cover is a 1:10 by Bill Sienkiewicz. Not sure how many stores ordered 10 copies of this independent. So if you like it start hunting now. .
So this isn’t my complete picks of the week but I thought it’s nice to give people a heads up on these. Especially some of the higher ratio variants! Make your calls and start hunting now! #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily
Ask and ye shall receive!!! Here’s my 10 favorite sketches from the Bill Sienkiewicz 2015 sketchbook I received with my Fantastic Four #1 variants. Such a talented artist who can draw anything. Batman, Electra, mad max. It’s all here. Go check out his website and see all the other cool sketchbooks and signed covers he has available. @billsienkiewiczart #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#billsienkiewicz

A few months back @zappcomics did a post on Gideon Falls when it was 3-4 issues in and I said “hmm, maybe I should check that out”. I did. I was blown away. I’m such a fan. And despite owning each issue already I grabbed the volume 1 tpb today just to sit and read and enjoy again. If you haven’t read this yet then spending 9.99 on this is gonna be the best money you’ve spent all year! #igcomicfamily#igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#gideonfalls
Wednesday is always a good day, but today was extra cool Bc I was able to pick up the amazing art I won from my LCS walking dead day raffle!!! This awesome piece was done by @lendanovich who just does some phenomenal work. Pumped to have gotten this today thanks to Len and of course @zappcomics . Can’t wait to find a wall spot for it! #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#zappcomics
This is #MMCOCT18 , and I know this just got here today, but wow, 4 months in and I’m still floored by the books I receive every month. And that Tomb of Dracula, are you serious?!?!? Well done on the mystery mail call and if you haven’t signed up you need to check it out at geekstreet101.com . Ps, this months art is by @justfrany and it’s SICK. @comictom101 #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily
Spider-Man has always been my favorite superhero. I remember vividly the day I walked into my LCS as a late teen and saw the first issue of the MacFarlane Spider-Man and all the other cover variations that were on offer. I walked out with the regular cover and this silver variant. The gold cover sat right next to it but at the time I couldn't justify the few extra dollars. Either way I read the crap outta that series and still have the first 51 issues surprisingly all in pretty good shape. Although comic variants existed before this, the pre-bust variant comic boom was just starting. Thanks to @carlitoclassico for tagging me in today's #topvarianttuesday and bringing these memories back.
New to this and trying to get used to all these comic specific hashtags!!! But apparently #topvarianttuesday is a thing, so personally I love this virgin variant 3rd or 4th print I think of Thanos 13. First appearance of Cosmic Ghost Rider. Really awesome cover homage to Secret Wars (which was the lenticular cover for 13). Got this one from @unknowncomicbooks and snagged some signatures from @dcates and @geshaw at NYCC. Love it. #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#thanos#cosmicghostrider
FF and the Inhumans are two of my favorite groups in comic books and yet they’ve been so terribly translated to television and film. Inhumans will probably never get another shot but I’m anxious and cautiously optimistic about what Marvel Studios will do with FF once the Fox merger is completed. Who’s on board? Who has thoughts? Who should be cast? Who likes these two awesome comics? #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#fantasticfour#fantastic4#inhumans
Judge Dredd has always been one of my favorite characters, I think the movies have, to a degree, done him an injustice. I encourage anyone to pick up some Dredd books, I really don’t feel you will be disappointed. #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily#judgedredd
Not all foil covers are created equal! This virgin Dark Knight Returns exclusive from NYCC is just gorgeous. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Perhaps someday I’ll be lucky enough to add a Frank Miller signature to this beauty! #igcomicfam#geekresponsibly#igcomicfamily
