FOR TOMMY: RETURN TO SPECULATION
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
