Topic: Superman and Lois
Last night I watched the pilot for Superman and Lois and it's got potential. Superman is the same guy, Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman in the CW Supergirl show. It's not romantic like Lois and Clark. It's not learning his powers with a love triangle like Smallville. It's more of a family drama with superpowers. The dynamic between being a father, a husband and a son versus being Superman is where the story lives. He's not perfect and struggles with some things while still being the strongest person on the planet. It's an interesting twist on a well-loved character.

I'm not joining the official fan club but I'm going to watch the next episode tonight. (along with WandaVision)

we have had over 100 F in Summer.
In Sask. where I have some connection- I have seen -30 Centigrade-that is very very cold.
not sure what that translates into F but cold.
Today it is a balmy 45F-out for a walk.



I just know it's too cold up there for me. I would also hate having to convert C to F just to know what it felt like outside.
And as an American, I'll never use the metric system either. You can keep your kilos and centigrade.

I believe tomorrow is the last episode. I've enjoyed it. If they do not do another season, I'll get set for Falcon & the Winter Soldier and then Loki.

Looks like I'm getting the chance to check this out. Was buying cereal today and there was an offer for a 30 day free trial to Disney+.
I'll let you know what I think after actually watching it :p

Topic: Department of Truth
I was picking up my Wednesday pulls yesterday and decided to check out the shelves. Wouldn't you know it, they had a full run of first print A covers on the shelf. Well, except for issue one. They had the B cover. I left it because I had already ordered an A cover online. Might grab it next week if it's still there.
Issue one came in the mail today. It's another one where I'm not thrilled with the art. Guess I'm just a sucker for the classic comic style. But the story is definitely there. I can see why people like it so much. Not disappointed in this one. Think I'm gonna keep up on it. And if I can make some coin off it down the road, even better.

Symbiote Spider-man #1 apparently has two Walmart versions? There is no barcode in the bottom right corner of the one I received. But I have seen a Walmart 3-pack online with the barcode in the bottom right corner just like what is shown on the CPG listing below:

SYMBIOTE SPIDER-MAN #1-WALM - https://comicspriceguide.com/titles/symbiote-spider-man/1-WALM/pkwtjuu

Any one else pick up a copy yesterday?

I was a little worried about the story, since they were pushing so many variants of the cover. You know, could it live up to the hype?

I think it did. The art isn't bad and the story is intriguing. Enough that I think I might pick up the next issue, just to see where it goes.

Got my copy yesterday.
Gotta say, I'm not impressed.
The art style was too muddy for me. That first panel that had him punching through the guy's head had me staring at it and twisting /my/ head trying to figure out what exactly was going on.
The story was lackluster too. It repeated too much for so little dialog.
And the reveal at the end had me just shaking my head and laughing because of the number they chose. We get it, he's been alive a long time. But seriously?

I may be in the minority, but I'm not gonna be picking up the next issue.

I was thinking that it could be added to the creators page, so along with writers, artists, inkers and such we could add character appearances.

If you go to the page for the main series, there is a tab near the top for "Trade Paper Back". Clicking on that will bring you to the collected volumes.
Main page: https://comicspriceguide.com/titles/suicide-squad/tmrwi
Page for the book you're looking for: https://comicspriceguide.com/titles/suicide-squad/1_trade%20paper%20back/yopsix

Looks like it should be worth $12-$15.

Good evening collectors,
I am curious about the value of the "Suicide Squad: The New 52: Volume 1: Kicked In The Teeth" Collection Book, which holds issues #1-7 and it has not been sealed but no visible damage. I've tried to research the value of the collection book on the website with no avail. Does anyone know the value of this collection or have any tips on researching this better? Thank you and have a great day.

Given how generally underwhelming the WCA was as a series, I guess that means there is some scarcity, too. But, how do you really get past the "underwhelming" part?

Topic: Comic Resources
I didn't see a post anywhere that had a collection of comic resources.
Obviously we all know and love CPG, but what other sites do you use when researching comics?
This could be for cover prices, covers, artist, characters, stories, solicitations. Really, anything other than price (don't want to support direct competition on that front!)
* to the mods: feel free to zap any of these that you feel are inappropriate.
.
Here are the sites that I frequently use:
.
Grand Comics Database (https://www.comics.org/) - Great resource for covers, prices, descriptions
Comic Vine (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/) - Great resource for character information. Has descriptions, history, appearances (including first appearances)
DC Fandom (https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Cover_Art_Galleries) - I use this sometimes to view back issue DC covers
Comics Fandom (https://comics.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page) - Good resource if you're looking for basic info about a particular series
Marvel.com (https://www.marvel.com/comics/series) - Direct from Marvel resource of current and former series
-
CBSI (https://comicbookinvest.com/) - Good site with a ton of speculation info
Key Collector Comics (https://comicbookinvest.com/) - Another site with spec info, but this one also has reading orders, books related to a specific topic and trend information
-
Diamond Previews World (https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog?cat=1) - new solicits for Marvel, Image, IDW, Boom! and many others
Lunar Distribution (https://www.lunardistribution.com/) - new solicits for DC Entertainment
-
CBR (https://www.cbr.com/) - Has a lot of articles relating to comics (print and screen) and other pop culture
.
