Article by comic book historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com
This article is immensely useful in determining what retailers have under ordered and what is going to sell out fast.
This column is here to help promote every new comic book series debuting this week.
Pictured are the 3 new series that are selling out the fastest at Diamond !

NewComics20141105

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.
This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!
So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.
Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled the week BEFORE release date!

Comic Broker Report – November 2014

Here’s a small sampling of the comics I like this month and no I am not spending money on the insane cover price DC is asking for the Harley annual that smells like weed.

The Avengers 170,171

Looking for Ultron keys?  Scoop up these Perez Classics before it’s too late.

ssAvengers_Vol_1_171

Ultron doesn’t appear in the Avengers again until 202.

 

Fantastic Four 53 ( First Ulysses Klaw )

That sure looks like Klaw in the Avengers 2 trailer and he’s not the only reason to hunt down this key Black Panther book ( first Vibranium! )  The market is already wise to this one so prices are going to be high but it is a pretty safe bet.  Ya might be tempted to sell now with Marvel’s big phase 3 news but Black Panther key books are only going to rise in value  due to the broad appeal of this character.

ff 53 first u klaw

 

Fantastic Four 173, 174 ( First Counter-Earth )

Upcoming events from Marvel look to incorporate their own multiverse like story lines.  The High Evolutionary created one of those worlds here.

imagesff 174 first counter-earth

 

SUICIDE SQUAD:

Let’s get a head start on the Suicide Squad film speculation.  Here are the first appearances of some of the more obscure members:

First Multiplex

firestorm 2 first multiplex

 

First Mindboggler

I cannot believe how many Firestorm comics are fast becoming key DC books!

firestorm 29 first mindboggler

 

First Jaculi

first jaculi

 

First Vixen

God this is an awful cover!

action 521 first vixen

Other Key Suicide Comics:  Vol.1 1,23,49

 

And some other last minute comics…

 

Spider-Man Summer Sampler 2012 ( First Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel )

Are you looking for the spot where Carol Danvers appeared as Captain Marvel for the first time?  She appeared on the cover to this freebee months before Avenging Spider-Man 9 and issue one of the regular series.

567653

Silver Surfer 44 ( First Infinity Gauntlet )

With the announcement of the Infinity War films Marvel has thrown down the gauntlet for speculators!  While others are throwing away money on comics like the Infinity War 1-6 series ( which might just prove to have no connection the films other than the title ) I’m betting on cheap back issues like this.

The spec market will be a little quiet this week, but it is Halloween time again. You know what that means right? Free comics this Wednesday, then the free candy on Friday! What a week!

Deathlok_HasbroAstonshing_Tales_25Last week I gave you an option for that $100 burning a hole in your pocket. This week there is another $100 InvestComics Hot Pick. With the new release of Deathlok (2014 4th Series) #1 headed our way this Wednesday, and with a plethora of variant covers to accompany it, we should really turn our focus onto Astonishing Tales #25 (1974). This of course is Deathlok’s first appearance. The collector can buy a very fine+ copy of this comic right now at $100 easily. A bargain considering all of the play the character is getting these days on S.H.I.E.L.D. Television series. How long before we eventually see him making an appearance on the big screen in a cameo possibly? The character is an interesting one and fans do have a liking for him. There are a few mitigating factors here that do equate to more of a cult following though rather than a popular one to the likes of say of a Deadpool. For many years there were rumors of a possible Deathlok movie, that never came to fruition, but may someday. Instead we get the character on a popular television series. Which doesn’t always account for a first appearance to spike. Movie news spikes a book much quicker. The Deathlok series is on its fourth ongoing go-around. Too many retakes on a series shows that the character lacks the durability to sustain its popular status for too long. So where does that leave the speculator? Well this leaves us with a potential character that may find it’s way as a supporting cast member in a movie one day. The popularity has called for four ongoing series already. That has to account for the cult status, but Marvel wants this dude to work in the worse way. With DC announcing their Cyborg movie, you don’t think Marvel would want to outdo them and show them how it’s done? Maybe, maybe not. The Deathlok character in my opinion has more upside than most other Bronze age first appearances. Astonishing Tales #25 is not only an important first appearance key Bronze book, but it also happens to be Legends’ George Perez’ first professional work. That alone is worth the one bill to buy this comic. Upside guys/gals, upside.

Two major players get into the mix this week. The ever popular Carnage stars in Axis Carnage (2014 Marvel) #1. Who doesn’t love this villain?? Check out this comic for a big reveal in the life of everyone’s favorite symbiote. Harley Quinn gets her own poly bagged comic this week. Not because of explicit content, not because of a major story plot line, not because of a coupon or something, because of the smell…….yes the smell. Supposedly DC Comics has put some sort of a “smell” into the issue. A literal smell. Like in one of the human senses, taste, touch, etc. Smell. They say it smells nasty so they poly bagged it. Really?? Seriously?? This is almost too hard to believe because it sounds absurd. It’s not April first, it’s in their solicit for the comic, so……..oh boy. Can we go back to the absurd amount of variants instead? Actually that is present too. Look for the smelly issue; Harley Quinn (2013) Annual #1. Harley_QuinnCarnageTaking gimmicks to new heights. Next comic companies will put blood in their ink. Oh wait…..dang.

A must buy this week is Image Comics’ Rasputin (2014 Image) #1.

Quite a few independent comics will have to be on your radar this week. Very interesting story lines indeed. Nothing sold out as of yet, so be sure to pick them up at your local shop and make a decision on them. Godkiller Walk Among Us (2014 Black Mask) #1, I Play The Bad Guy (2014) #1, Roman Ritual (2014) #1, Beast Commandos (2014 Amigo) #1, and Phantom (2014 Hermes Press) #1.

Archie Comics starts a new series with the worlds most famous hedgehog; Sonic Boom (2014 Archie) #1. The baddest man in the UK comes this Wednesday with a new number one issue; Dredd Uprise (2014 Rebellion) #1.

A fantastic comic comes out from Marvel this week; Marvel 75th Anniversary Celebration (2014). A look back at 75 years in the Marvel Universe. Brought to you by a bevy of creators within the industry. Get this comic for nostalgic reasons, for great reading material, a history lesson of sorts, and maybe even a nice comic to get Capital Grading Services on top of eventually. Get the various creators from this comic to sign it for you and Capital GS will get it witnessed/graded through CBCS. Sounds like a plan!

See you soon. Invest wisely.
Carpe Diem.

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY OCTOBER 2014

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY OCTOBER 2014

HotComics201410Early

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

This chart is styled like the old classic Wizard Magazine Top 10 Hottest Comic charts that were published every month in the 1990′s.

This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

(If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know)

MARKET REPORT:

#1 EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2 (MARVEL 2014) 1st app of new Gwen Stacy Spider-woman had a high print run of 50,000 but yet still sold out with sales continuing 5 weeks in a row now up as high as $37.00 within weeks of release. 1:25 ratio variant cover now up to $130.00.

DAY MEN #1 (BOOM 2013) New ongoing series – #1 sold out instantly – kept rising during early August and then new movie news and the world went nuts for this book.

Hit a high of $20.00 and then online got flooded with too many copies and prices settled now at $9.00.

CRYPTOZOIC MAN #1 (IDW 2013) At first the title did not even sell out but eventually did and then went to a 2nd printing and continuous promotion on the Comic Book Men TV series led demand to grow and grow. A #1-2 set regular print cover sold for $41.00 this week.

FURY OF FIRESTORM #23 (1983) 1st app Byte Felicity Smoak Green ARROW TV show – popular female character helped drive demand for this 1980′s comic.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20 VARIANT (MARVEL 2013) Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly a hot issue climbing in value and selling way more than expected for the print run. Currently at about $70.00 instead of an estimated $25.00 for a 1:50 variant.

CATWOMAN #23 (DC 2013) 1st appearance of Joker’s Daughter appears in the last page and is a prelude to her big appearance coming up soon in the 3D DC Villain take over month. Prices hit $13.00 the day of release.

RED STAR (IMAGE 2000) Older series with recent news of potential TV show in the works shot prices up as high as $20.00 for #1 in early Feb 2014.

OUTLIERS #1 (2013) Indie comic self published with financing. Highest ratings online for story and art. Super small print run. More and more hype every week and a print run of less than 1800 copies kept prices continually rising up and currently at $50.00. We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date. Strong popularity kept prices high on this one after 2 months.

SKYWARD #0-3 (2010) Originally a self published mini series in 2010. (3 years before the new ongoing series). Jeremy Dale self-published the first three issues a few years ago. These black and white “Graphite Editions” have sold on eBay for over $300 for a set of 0-3 in the last few weeks. A number 1 Graphite sells for around $100.

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.
This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!
So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.
Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled the week BEFORE release date!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 10/22/14

360_20050921201924_large2056970Not much in the way of sold out items this week except for books like Alice Cooper #2, Southern Dog #2, and a Shaman #1 variant cover. But more important books to keep an eye on this week…….

If you’re a regular reader of the InvestComics Hot Picks, you would not only be greatly informed, but you would know that I have been bullish (buyer) on The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) for about 8 years now. Nothing has changed except that Deathstroke will be getting more attention this week with the release of his own ongoing series; Deathstroke (2014 DC 2nd Series) #1. I cannot stress enough just how much this dude is on the cusp of greatness. He’s appeared on the Arrow show with much fanfare and fans cannot seem to get enough. Now DC releases the solo series and what could be next? Well, DC/WB just announced their 10 movies coming out within the span of the next 6 years. Yes that’s right 10 movies in 6 years. We’ll see about that, but that’s not the focus point here. The focus point is the character Deathstroke. If DC/WB have a clue, they will include Mr. Slade in one of these 10 films. And they probably will. Getting prepared for the coming of Deathstroke will only cost you between $99-$125 for a raw copy of The New Teen Titans #2 (First Deathstroke) (1980). I implore you to buy this comic.

The Catwoman comic gets a new creative team. Definitely check out Catwoman (2011 4th Series) #35.

With all of the excitement of the new Gotham series comes Arkham Manor (2014) #1. Look for some interest with this one.

17276_20070115140205_large2058872Two older Marvel characters make an appearance this week. One with a new look and the other as he was back in 1983. Axis Hobgoblin (2014 Marvel) #1 will feature the Hobgoblin as he once was back in his first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #238 (1983). And in All New Invaders (2013) #11, we get a brand new look for Iron Cross. His first appearance was in The Invaders #35 (1978).

Cyclops (2014 2nd Series) #6 will feature the debut Marvel artist Javier Garron. He’s done a few things for DC and IDW, but this marks his debut into the Marvel fray.

Hard to believe that Edward Scissorhands made his appearance on the big screen 24 years ago. Even more peculiar is the fact that there is no comic adaptation of this dude……until now. Edward Scissorhands (2014 IDW) #1 will follow Edward 50 years after the movie. If you’re a fan of Eddie, this one is for you!

Other cool comics to check out this week; The awesomeness of all awesome team-ups, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ghostbusters (2014 IDW) #1, 13 Coins (2014 Titan) #1 by fan favorite Simon Bisley. An attention getter out of the gate. Memetic (2014 Boom) #1, and Image Comics brings us Goners (2014 Image) #1. You should check out this interesting plot line before they’re all……..gone.

InvestComics Spotlight Pick – Marvel Spotlight: Civil War

images

Speculation surrounding the next Cap film just got crazy with the announcement that Iron Man will be a cast member.  It seems Civil War is currently the event most people believe Marvel Films will adapt next.  While the story they use will probably be much different from Millar’s tale you can expect anything key to start getting scooped up now.  Variants from the mini are highly prized but if an event can have a first appearance this is it!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 10/15/14

The InvestComics team is fresh back from the New York Comic Con 2014. This was our first time ever facilitating for the awesome grading company CBCS. It was fantastic. Many cool variants, old comics, and lots of Synder autographs were requested. All and all a great experience and we look forward to serving everyone’s needs at future shows.

If you follow us on any of the major social outlets we are on, you would have seen some great coverage of the show. As usual we will be combining a lot of the pictures to give fans a collage in a video form. That will be coming soon.

Thanks to the InvestComics team Rafael Rosario and Chico. An amazing duo that pursues above and beyond…..cannot not explain the gratefulness to them in words, but thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Let’s jump into the InvestComics Hot Picks. Comics are due out tomorrow……

One thing was most certain at this year’s New York Comic Con and that is that 215 Ink has a hit on their hands. The Enormous NYCC variant was nowhere to be found 30 minutes into the show. The next day was no better. Bottom line here, the Enormous comic is making some noise and this week Enormous (2014) Ongoing #4 is hitting the shelf with a sold out sign on it. This means if you see any on the new comic book wall at your shop, once that spot is empty; it’s empty until a second printing comes along. The hit series continues to sell out, so you may want to be on top of it early before it’s 20 issues in and the early issues command too much money.

Another comic that continues to sell out is Cutter. Cutter (2014 Image) #3 is gone at the distributor. Be on top of this too.

[scrollGallery id=375]

The video game industry is an industry that pulls in billions upon billions of dollars per year. What if you put out a comic book that consist of one of the biggest video game money makers in history?…. A  2 billion dollar franchise? Well IDW are taking their chance with Skylanders (2014 IDW) #1. What will this comic present in the spec market? Maybe not much, maybe something, who knows? What we do know is that the Skylanders franchise has pulled in some seriously crazy money, oh and the subscription release is sold out. Will the popularity leak into the comic book form? Will the demand be there and drive prices up in the aftermarket? You’ll have to take a chance with this one. A $3.99 gamble, your call.

Week after week I consistently remind collectors that the Spider-Verse  storyline is one to keep an eye on. There are a tremendous amount of new characters being introduced and this week is no different. Check out Edge of Spider-Verse (2014 Marvel) #5 with Sp//dr. Looks like Spider-Man has gone Anime. One of these new Spidey’s will break out in a big way and you’ll be kicking yourself for it.

Speaking of Spider-Man. Did you see the cover to Spider-Man 2099 (2014) #5? Wow that is nice!

The ever so popular Quantum and Woody from Valiant return with an almost sold out number one issue. Be sure to check out Q2 Return of Quantum And Woody (2014 Valiant) #1. 2058770A few variants are available with the new release.

The Deadpool photobomb cover of Hulk (2014 2nd Series) #7 is sold out. A classic homage cover to Todd McFarlane’s Incredible Hulk #340.

And staying on topic with Wolverine, Wolverine and the X-Men (2014) #10 will lay Logan to rest in a big way. A big way meaning there will be many artist contributing to this issue. Always good to get these types of comics because a first professional work always slips in. Or a first work on a character that the artist could go on to dominate later on in their career.

Last of the Wolverine books to check out this week would be Death of Wolverine Logan Legacy (2014) #1. This comic has some of the best Wolverine rouge gallery ever featured in it. Looks like a fun read if anything. Only a 7 issue run here.

By “killing off” one of the most overused characters in the Marvel Universe, he gets replaced by Deadpool. This Wednesday we are treated with a new number one issue pertaining to Deadpool. This time it’s Deadpool’s Art of War (2014) #1. Aftermarket draw? Not too sure here, but just some Deadpool reading by none other than Peter David!

Doctor Who fans rejoice. A new number one comic heads your way on new comic book day; Doctor Who The Twelfth Doctor (2014 Titan) #1. Better hurry though because it looks like it’s almost sold out.

That’s it for this week. Thank you all for the well wishes. See you next week.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during LATE SEPTEMBER 2014

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during LATE SEPTEMBER 2014

HotComics201409Late

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

This chart is styled like the old classic Wizard Magazine Top 10 Hottest Comic charts that were published every month in the 1990′s.

This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

(If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know)

MARKET REPORT:

#1 X-FORCE #2 and #11 (MARVEL 1991) 2nd full app of Deadpool skyrocketed in media coverage and demand once the Deadpool movie was confirmed in Sept 2014.

#2 MARVEL SUPER HEROES WINTER SPECIAL (MARVEL 1991) 1st app of Squirrel Girl in this ignored giant size annual from 1991. Prices continually climbing every month.

#3 EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2 (MARVEL 2014) 1st app of new Gwen Stacy Spider-woman had a high print run but yet still sold out with sales up to $13.00 within weeks of release. 1:25 ratio variant cover up to $50.00

#4 SHAZAM #28 (DC 1976) 1st bronze/modern app of Black Adam – major DC villain who will appear in the upcoming Shazam movie caused prices of this book to continue to climb as high as $315.00 for a VF copy in early September 2014. Demand for all issues of the #1-35 series were up and all cheap copies sold and super high demand for #1 from 1973.

#5 HUGH HOWEY’S WOOL #1 #2 #3 (2014) Book adapted to comic book series sold out quickly due to small print run and hype of a new movie. The variant cover was printed as a 1:4 and sales of both issues up to $20.00 each and a huge buzz for this title. #2 was also an instant sellout hitting $15.00 each in August 2014. #3 came out in Sept and hit $12.00 each

#6 SHAZAM #25 (DC 1976) 1st app of Isis rumoured to be the wife of Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam movie – prices up to $50.00

#7 EX-MACHINA #1 (DC/WILDSTORM 2004) Recent sales up to $50.00

#8 BLACK WIDOW #11 1:25 VARIANT (MARVEL 2014) Deadpool variant had smaller print run and hit up to $40.00

#9 WOLVERINE #80 (MARVEL 1994) Rumours that X23 first appeared in this issue shot prices up.

#10 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #22 (MARVEL 1988) 1st app of Speedball high demand starting in Sept 2014

#11 ANNIHILATOR #1 (LEGENDARY COMICS 2014) Classic comic writer Grant Morrison published his new series with this new indie publisher which led to a sell out instantly with small print run and tons of sales in the $10.00 range immediately.

#12 FACE VALUE #1 (FACE VALUE COMICS 2014) Small print comic about an autistic hero reached TV news media coverage and comic became super hot overnight hitting a high of $80.00 within days of release.

#13 LUCIFER #1 (DC 2005) Reports of a new TV series based on the character boosted demand in Sept 2014

#14 SANDMAN (DC VERTIGO 1989) #1-4. Reports of a movie caused new interest in this key DC 80′s book so we are sneaking it on The chart. #1 Sales over $100.00 in late Dec 2013. #4 has increased demand starting in Sept as it features 1st app of Lucifer who gets his own series.

AMAZING SPIDERMAN #700 DITKO VARIANT (MARVEL 2012) Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly was hotter than normal. It came out in December 2012 featuring the death of Peter Parker. But this rare variant was a 1:200 ratio which usually are worth about $100.00 but by January this comic hit a high peak of $1200.00 making it a record high sales price for any new comic in 2013.

3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #4 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #4 of the villains month campaign. Here are the highest prices achieved for each. Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online. Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices. Week Four Joker’s Daughter at $110.00 Doomsday at $20 Black Adam at $20 Killer Croc at $13 First Born at $13 Man-Bat at $13 Bane at $12 Sinestro at $12 Secret Society at $12 Ocean Master at $12 Parasite at $11. Joker’s Daughter is without the single most hyped up and hottest comic of the entire year and may have set world record prices for a pre-sale of a new release as collectors were paying up to $110.00 each for a copy of this book just to make sure they got one. That is paying almost 40x cover price before it even came out. Very few customers got a copy unless they were a regular file customer for Batman: The Dark Knight series. It was the hottest of all the 3D covers and the hottest comic of the entire year. However the downside I predicted is that prices could only come down and that has already started to happen.

3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #3 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #3 of the villains month campaign. Here are the highest prices achieved for each. Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online. Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices. Week Three Clayface at $20 Dial E at $46 Eclipso at $20 Deathstroke at $25 The Rogues at $15 Cheetah at $14 Penguin at $13 Ra’s Al Ghul at $13 Arcane at $13 Black Hand at $12 Scarecrow at $12 Shadow Thief at $12 Lex Luthor at $11 H’el at $7

3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #2 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #2 of the villains month campaign. Here are the highest prices achieved for each. Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online. Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices. Week Two Harley Quinn at $36 Mr Freeze at $31 Lobo at $31 Riddler at $20.50 Reverse Flash at $20 Court Of Owls at $18 Killer Frost at $17.50 Solomon Grundy at $13 Trigon at $13 Black Manta for $12 Mongul at $12 Brainiac at $10.50 Zod at $10

3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #1 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #1 of the villains month campaign. Here are the highest prices achieved for each. Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online. Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices. Week One Forever Evil #1 – $280 (1 per store variant cover). Darkseid for $31 Poison Ivy for $27 Ventriloquist for $26.50 Joker for $25 Count Vertigo at $20 Creeper at $20 Deadshot at $16.50 Two-Face at $15 Relic at $14 Bizarro at $13.50 Grodd at $13 Desaad at $13 Cyborg Superman at $10

SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for October 15 2014

SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for October 15 2014

Article by comic book historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com
This article is immensely useful in determining what retailers have under ordered and what is going to sell out fast.
This column is here to help promote every new comic book series debuting this week.
Pictured are the 3 new series that are selling out the fastest at Diamond !

NewComics20141015

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.

This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!
So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.
Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled the week BEFORE release date!

Comic Broker Report – Second Appearances

Serious collectors whom I speak with usually frown upon the 2nd appearance but like the recent popularity of reprints like Action Comics 1, Amazing Fantasy 15, certain Marvel Milestones and others it shows the continuing evolution of what makes a  comic desirable.  Some of the Action Comics 1 reprinst are fairly tough to track down.  Add a low printing and a craving from collectors and sales take off…

So do you want to stay ahead of market trends?  Start hoarding these:

Nightwing ( Dick Grayson )

So I have been told that the annual is Nightwing’s second appearance but issue 45 was released in August of 1984 and issue 44 in July.  I cannot find a release date for the annual so until I do I am going with 45 as Nightwing’s second appearance.  It’s important to note that Comic Collector 3 predates 44 and does show Nightwing in Costume.  That could make it the true first appearance of Nightwing and 44 his second.  Wow that’s a bit confusing.  Just buy them all.

405_20050924143112_large54614_20060929090950_large

Notable Comics:  The Comic Collector 3 predates Teen Titans 44, DC Sampler 2 ( September 1984 )

Cable

New Mutants 88

Cable has never looked as good thanks to Mcfarlane not that other chump.

4685_20060818161508_large

Notable comics:  New Mutants 86; he appears  at the end in a preview panel for next month’s issue!, Amazing Spider-Man 336 is his first appearance outside of a New Mutants Comic.

Venom

ASM 315

Ok so ASM 299 is considered a cameo making 300 his first appearance and this comic his second:

13117_20051126171121_large

Notable Comics: Web of Spider-Man 18,24  and if you collect Foreign comics:

228072_20111023111826_large

X-23

With rumors that she may take over as Wolverine it’s time to revisit her limited key books:

Nyx 4 is her second.

231_20060316091233_large

Notable Comics: X-Men 450 ( newsstand ), Nyx 5, Might Marvel Must Haves

45584_20111231160112_large

Domino

2674945-x_force__1991_2002_1st_series__008

As X-Force 11 creeps up in price due to the fact that many believe it to be her first appearance it has become clear that a market correction needs to be made.  Her first appearance is on the cover of New Mutants 98 even though it is a copycat Domino.  So if her likeness first appears in NM 98 then why are so many bent on believing her first appearance to be in X-Force 11?  X-Force 8 is her 2nd.

Note:  There has been no conformation that she will be appearing in the Deadpool film.
