Tuesday Trending Topics: Big Fat Spoiler Tag

Posted by April 6, 2011 Comment

It’s going to be a hard day to avoid spoilers, I think, on one book in particular. Retailers (and of course, BC readers) were buzzing about this like crazy yesterday.  But it’s another good week in comics, there’s Nonplayer, Fear Itself, Brightest Day, and a bunch more.  And I see Rich has some great reviews planned for morning, but before that, let’s catchup:

Big Brightest Day Spoilers You Will Kill Yourself Over If You Read

After all, DC are not like Marvel. They don’t like to spoil their big comics news stories in the local rags a few days previously, they like you to get a big surprise by picking up the comic, on the stands and then flicking to the last page. That’s tradition.

Captain America And Batman Continue To Match Each Other Beat For Beat

Now Marvel have announced a new series, Captain America And Bucky, taking over the numbering from Captain America, by Ed Brubaker , Marc Andreyko and Chris Samnee.

Butcher Baker IS The New Nonplayer

On Saturday, a copy of Butcher Baker The Righteous Maker #1 by Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston from Image Comics sold for $26 on eBay, three days after it was published at $2.99. Quite a remarkable market jump, though by yesterday copies were selling for closer to $20.

This Week’s #Comicmarket Tuesday Trends

Every tuesday, a bunch of retailers and pros get together to talk shop as sort of a prelude to Comic Day. Of course, under the current distro arrangement most retailers get some lead time to prep for the big day — which means they necessarily also get a day’s jump on what they think looks good for the week. It should be no surprise to BC readers that Nonplayer was the big buzz of the day, I even noted a few shops helping each other out to make sure they had copies for their customers. Fear Itself is regarded as the monster of the week, but most felt Brightest Day would be most talked-about after the dust settles.

Here’s a visual of what else was discussed:
