WAITING FOR TOMMY: RETURN TO SPECULATION
By Richard Johnston

MEDIUM TERM

Hellboy. Even a mediocre success at the box office will make these money magnets. If you can find them cheap enough buy pretty much anything you can. Make sure you sell in the first or second week of box office sales, though.

Frank Miller's Robocop. Again, low ordered, this beautiful Geoff-Darrow style colour book has outperformed all expectations in terms of quality. Again, Frank Miller, beautiful art, Robocop interest. There's enough here to make some cash with.

Amber Benson. Anything she writes has a mad Buffy attraction. Her Willow And Tara writing with Strangers In Paradise's Terry Moore may have been awful, but it brought an awful lot of readers to that book, follow where she goes next.

Lobo. They're doing a film. The "heat" on this character faded fast, so there are lots of cheap copies. Get any of the Bisley work, maybe Lobocop. The new series may well be underestimated as well. That you sell quickly, the rest, you keep around until the film hits. Then get rid of them faster that Lobo can frag a policeman.

Mark Millar's DC Past. His Millarworld work will get attention, as his Ultimates and Red Son continue to do. Look for Aztek, Swamp Thing, Superman Adventures and others to rise from the quarter bins. Also Youngblood Bloodsport, sell them to Millar-mad Brits for well over cover price - it's the only way they can get them. Put a few up on eBay.co.uk, see if they bite.

Talking of that bugger, Ultimate Fantastic Four. Millar. Hitch. Kubert. Fantastic Four. Movie on the way. Exponential combination chaps. It'll get ordered high, but probably not as high as it will warrant.

Zenith - any 2000AD back issues you can find with this fellow in it. As the legal complications look to stretch out to infinity over republishing rights, and the existing trade paperbacks fetch a fortune, supplies of the original comics are still in plentiful supply in the UK. If you live there, buy them and either trade them for Dreamwave Transformers online, or take them to American conventions with you. You could pay for your hotel rooms at least.

Any small press comic book that gets a movie/TV option/contract will gain a tiny bit of interest - but one that overshadows its even tinier sales. Fill your boots with Super Hero Happy Hour and the like.
