Swamp Thing 1

Top 5 Pick of the week – Swamp Thing #1 – Click to Buy/Bid

Amazing Spider-Man #611 (2009) – The first appearance by Deadpool in a Spider-Man comic. A fantastic book to own since both of these characters are so popular and are starring in their first monthly team up comic. Furthermore, with the Deadpool character becoming an obvious main staple within the Marvel universe, a first team up comic with these two is an easy decision purchase to make for your collection. And that Young cover is becoming a classic as the years go by.

Spider-Man Deadpool #1 – This is the team up comic many Marvel fans have been clamoring for. It’s going to be a great ongoing title. Wait until they bring the Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool team up into the fray as we are predicting. Wow will this be a huge comic. And the Liefeld variant to go along with that team up? Yes, it’s going to be big. Well, we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but that Gamestop Spider-Man Deadpool variant is creating quite a stir in the aftermarket itself!

Howard The Duck #3 – Speaking of Gwenpool, last week InvestComics gave fans a heads up on this variant. There was some kind of delay in putting these out for sale. Now that they go on sale THIS week, they’re sold out! Good luck finding a copy at your local retailer. Click the link, get it on Ebay.

Doctor Strange Vol 4 #4 – Deadpool wins! Wins the most appearances in the InvestComics Top 5 list that is. Here he is again appearing on a random Doctor Strange variant.

Swamp Thing #1 – Swamp Thing gets another redo. Seems many DC Comics these days are, but that’s a conversation for another time. As said in the InvestComics Hot Picks article, Swamp Thing has always fared well for DC as far as longevity is concerned. This title should be no different then past success with writer Len Wein and artist Kelley Jones at the helm. Get your read on here, this is going to be awesome.

 

Here are the rest of the comics that appeared on this past week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #405 (Click the link to read now!)

Nova #1 9.0

IC 100 Club Pick – Nova #1 (1976) – First appearance of Nova – Click To Buy It Now

Before we hit the Hot Picks this week, we wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! To bring in the New Year we’re going to debut a new feature within the Hot Picks articles. It will be called “The IC 100 Club”. This new feature will post a comic book that will be click-able to buy/bid on Ebay and cost $100 (or $99). We do not own/sell the comics we post about. Every click-able comic is from any/all Ebay sellers on Ebay that have the particular comic we feature within their inventory (the same applies to all of our articles – please see our disclaimer). The idea here is to point out a comic on Ebay that is affordable and has some substance/value to it within the $100 mark. This is a trial feature and we will probably expand on this feature as time goes on. As of right now, the InvestComics Facebook page already features a random spot called “InvestComics Ebay Find”. The feature on Facebook gives fans an opportunity to check out random comics we see fit and sharing. Maybe our IC 100 Club will expand on there? Maybe we will have an IC 50 Club pick too? Maybe a featured article on InvestComics? All in good time friends!
The first IC 100 Club book is Nova #1 (1976) graded 9.0. The first appearance of Nova. Grab this for $100 with free shipping. InvestComics has written about the Nova character for years and this book is a beauty. Maybe get it pressed and bump up the grade a bit? Either way, a 9.0 for $100 is a fine purchase. It’s a “Buy It Now”, so good luck!

Four Eyes Hearts of Fire #1 will continue where Four Eyes (2010) left off. The new release will be from the original 2008 team; Writter Joe Kelly and Pencils by Max Fiumara.
Gotta love the disturbingly eerie cover to IDW’s The Eighth Seal #2 (cover at the bottom of this article). Kudos to Travel Foreman here.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!

Swamp Thing comics have always fared rather well for DC Comics. Many restarts/volumes lasting many years. One of which lasted 14 years. That’s quite an amazing feat to have any comic last that long. The original co-creator, legend Len Wein (writer) will be given the task of making Swamp Thing relevant in today’s crowded superhero genre. Swamp Thing #1 features Len as the writer and art from the great Kelley Jones. We think Swampy will succeed here, not only because of the tremendous talent on this book, but maybe because of the craving of something “different” within the comic book selection on the shelf from one of the “big 2”. We’re not saying there aren’t any assorted titles from DC or Marvel to choose from outside the costumed hero lure, but Swamp Thing is not your average everyday superhero comic.
A fantastic comic to possess in your collection is House of Secrets #92 (1971). Not only is this comic the first appearance of Swamp Thing, but it’s also Len Wein writing with another legend on pencils; Bernie Wrightson. What is there not to love about this comic? Seriously.

The ever so popular Injustice comic story line reaches its pinnacle. Check out Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #1.

A-Force #1 gets a new number one issue after 6 months of it’s previous number one issue. In the July 2015 number one issue release, Singularity was introduced. She leads the team in the 2016 number one issue this coming Wednesday. Whew, got all that? The coolest thing about all of this? The ridiculously awesome N.W.A. A-Force #1 cover. Ahh, the good ol’ days!

The Vader Down crossover story concludes in Darth Vader #15.
A Deadpool variant cover for the new Doctor Strange Vol 4 #4 comic? Yep. A bit random no? Slow sales??

InvestComics spoke about Howard The Duck #3 (Vol 5) last week as the Marvel Hot Pick of the week. Read that article right HERE if you’d like. It was delayed, it comes out this week and guess what?? It’s sold out.
Two other delayed comics already touched on last week that will release THIS Wednesday; Obi-Wan and Anakin #1 and Rocket Raccoon and Groot #1.

Here is a copy and paste directly from the InvestComics Facebook page (You really really should get over and like our Facebook page. A lot of individual comic picks, contest announcements and interesting things happening over there!) from November 30th………..
The Spider-Man/Deadpool team-up comic will put two very successful characters together in one book every month. We will most likely see a Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool team-up within these pages too. Probably a Rob Liefeld variant or two as well. With all of that cool stuff waiting in the horizon, here’s the first team-up with Spider-Man and Deadpool for mega cheap on Ebay. X-Force #4 (1991).”
Now granted there are probably enough copies of this comic to fill up Yankees Stadium, but it’s probably close to if not maybe a little more/less than say a New Mutants #98 (1991) comic. Maybe you’ve heard of that comic? And let us stress here, in no way are we comparing the first appearance of Deadpool to the first time Spidey and Deadpool appear in the same comic, but X-Force #4 is a significant issue in regards to the history of these two characters. Another comic to buy would be Amazing Spider-Man #611 (2009). This comic features the first time Deadpool appears in a Spider-Man title. It might be the better buy even though it’s 19 years after they first met up in the X-Force book! It’s the first Spidey book and it probably has a lower print run than the 1991 X-Force book. A bit astonishing actually that it took 19 years for Deadpool to make it over into a Spidey book. Crazy right? 
Writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuiness will absolutely kill it with the new team-up title. As we also mentioned in our Facebook post, wait until the first Gwenpool/Spider-Gwen team-up hits. The comic book internet will explode. Especially the Rob Liefeld variant or the Robbi Rodriguez variant. It’s going to be big and we predict it will eventually happen in this title. Anyway you slice it (no pun intended) Spider-Man Deadpool #1 will be sold out very soon. One last thing, that Gamestop variant (pictured at the top of this article) is an instant classic. Only one available on Ebay right now.Probably many more to come, sit tight. 
Staying on topic for a moment here. Did the aftermarket go out of your range regarding that first appearance of Deadpool? Fear no more! Behold True Believers Deadpool #1! A reprint of New Mutants #98. The same cover and all too. Neato! (AW). Bet there will be less copies of this comic than the original 1991 version! Not many of these appearing on Ebay at the present time, once again, sit tight. They will be coming.
