Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details). 

IC 100 Club Pick: We have three CBCS graded comics to check out this week. Power Man and Iron Fist #119 (1985) 9.8. The retelling of Iron Fists’ origin for only $95. Free shipping. John Byrne cover. Nova #1 (1976) 9.0. The first appearance and origin of Marvel’s Nova character. On the cusp of something great in our humble opinion. This 9.0 graded comic is only $99 with free shipping. New Mutants #87 (1990) 8.5. This is the first appearance of Cable. It’s an 8.5 and with a press, maybe bump that grade up? Only $99.

We informed our fans back in January of this year regarding the Marvel character Slapstick. Check that out right here at this LINK. We spoke about all of the Merc For Money characters getting their own solo books before it was ever spoken about from Marvel. We especially hyper-focused on the Slapstick character. We thought and still think there is upside to this goofy Joker/Deadpool misfit character. Maybe even bigger things down the pike for him. This week the new Slapstick #1 will begin his newest journey onward and upward. He first appeared back in 1992’s self titled book Slapstick #1. We said it back in January and we’ll say it again, get his first appearance now. It was literally 75 cents when we mentioned it back 11 months ago. A NM copy ranges around $10 now in some outlets. Well worth it. Buy it now. The new Slapstick #1 Rob Liefeld variant(s) have Deadpool on the cover to make this a must get for variant cover collectors.

Speaking of giving fans a heads up, we helped fans make lots of money (flips) with Darth Vader #3, the first appearance of Doctor Aphra. Marvel continues their female dominate character run with their last(?) solo female book of 2016; Star Wars Doctor Aphra #1. Written by Darth Vader writer Kieron Gillen and art from Kev Walker. The solicit remains a secret as fans will get an in-depth look into the rookie Star Wars player in the Marvel universe. The Doctor is in and the prognosis is a good one.

Entering its seventh volume, Nova #1 from writer Jeff Loveness/Ramon Perez and art by Ramon Perez. Marvel promises a Nova comic as you have never seen before. Be there on new comic book day to check this out.
Marvel and DC have found a niche in the comic book market a while ago and of course are running it to the ground. With that said, meet She-Borg in her first appearance in Cyborg #6. You see, it’s Cyborg, but a girl version. Yes for real, no kidding.
Fantastic Frankenstein Superman cover by Doug Mahnke; Superman #12.
The identity of a new villain is revealed in Justice League #10.

Titan Comics will go back to well with their hit character Norman. Norman The First Slash #1 will begin a new series regarding the psychotic 9(?) year old boy. The first series sold very well as Norman #1 commanded some nice aftermarket cash before it settled off. If Titan Comics continues the restarts, that will demoralize the value a little bit of the number one issue. They should just have an on-going series and stick with it. That’s our two-cents, but Titan Comics and Norman will be awesome no matter what anyway.
Faith #6 from Valiant Entertainment will introduce fans to a new villain.
Dynamic Entertainment provides fans with a team up of epic proportions. A pairing that had fans screaming, demanding it happen. This Wednesday, because you demanded it, Wonder Woman 77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1. Odd pairing no?
A must read comic this week; Motor Crush #1 from Image Comics. Brought to you by the amazing creative team of Babs Tarr, Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart.

Here’s some Marvel Civil War stuff;
Marvel’s Civil War II #3 is labeled ‘Classified!’ We need to read it now. What’s going to happen within these pages that Marvel is so secretive about? C’mon Wednesday, get here!
And speaking of secrets, Civil War II Amazing Spider-Man #2 will reveal a person to turn on Peter that he’d never expect. Who will it be?
Civil War II Gods Of War #2 will introduce the team; Gods Of War.

The InvestComics Hot Pick of the week goes to DC’s New Super-Man #1. Many fanboys cannot wrap their heads around the fact that Super-Man is an Asian character in this series. The ridiculous notion that fanboys actually think their opinions matter is comedic onto itself, but some of the uproar shows how far off some of the actual thinking is from fanboy comic fans. Adult comic fans accept the change and or just go with the flow. They’ll give it a shot, they like it, they like it, they don’t, they don’t. Some fans need to booster up a bit and try new things once in a while and stop judging a book by its cover, or in this case; race. Which is even worse.

This total new take on “Super-Man” is a refreshing one. Buy this comic and give it a shot. Writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Viktor Bogdanovic are the creators and that in itself is enough to make us want to give this comic a try.

DC’s successful Rebirth line continues. It’s such a hit that many comic book stores are limiting their customers to one one copy each. Here are two to look out for this week. Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps Rebirth #1 will bring back fan favorite Ethan Van Sciver to a Green Lantern title. Nightwing Rebirth #1; creators Tim Seeley (art) and Yanick Paquette (writer) are going to be responsible for making Nightwing a major part of the DC Universe once again. The Babs Tarr variant will be a sold out comic.

Any new Image comic proves to be a great story. Horizon #1 is no exception. Follow the story of Zhia Malen, her first appearance, and the invasion of her planet…..from planet earth.

Sabrina #6 from Archie Comics will give us the origin of Salem. Yes, the cat! Awesome!
Best selling author Sarah Fine starts on her 4 issue series; Reliquary Mayhem & Magic #1, from Jet City Comics.
Aspen Entertainment readers get ready for Aspen Universe Revelations #1! This comic will start the new look Aspen Universe and combine all of their characters. It’s Marvel NOW! And DC Rebirth, but from Aspen Entertainment.

Kanan The Last Padawan #9 will have Caleb Dume facing off against General Grievous.
We love the Silk character and we love the Mark Bagley variant cover to Silk #2!
Squadron Supreme #1 debuts on new comic book day. It should be a good team book. Written by James Robinson and art from Leonard Kirk. Squadron Supreme first appeared in Avengers #85 (1971).
An interesting Marvel title this week to check out; Starbrand and Nightmask #1. Pick up the first appearances of Starbrand (new) in Avengers #7 (2013) and the first appearance of Nightmask (character) in Avengers #6 (2013) for cover price or less if you believe in these heroes to advance to greater heights in the realm of the new Marvel universe. Speculators have been put on notice.
Ultimate End #5 will be the last issue. See how it all ends. We’re loving that cover with Miles looking back. *sniff sniff*
Marvel’s new Weirdworld series will introduce a new character named Becca. We like the direction of this new series. Stay with this one. Written by Sam Humphries. Art by Mike Del Mundo. The regular “Flash/Shazam/Black Adam” Lightning bolt cover is awesome as well. Be sure to pick up Weirdworld #1 Vol. 2.
…..And Marvel releases their first Darth Vader Annual this Wednesday.

What would be better than having Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti on the monthly Harley Quinn and Starfire comics? How about a totally creative controlled NEW comic character by the awesome duo? Yes it will happen and HER name will be Super Zero. Super Zero #1 will be written by Amanda and Jimmy. Dru Dragowski (Super Zero) will become the next big female hero to enter the comic book arena. After-Shock Comics once again, week after week continues to bring it. After-Shock Comics are not gunning for tremors, they’re gunning to split the foundation of the comic industry. ASC will be a force to be reckoned with.

An all new Judge Dredd series from IDW comes out this week. Judge Dredd #1 Vol. 5 will have several variants available. The Archie variant is a neat one.
IDW will also start on a new Star Trek series. This has nothing to do with the Marvel title from 1996. Star Trek Starfleet Academy #1 will introduce new Star Trek characters so if you’re a Trekkie, you’ll want to get this. Speculators have been notified.
Also from IDW; Pinocchio Vampire Slayer Versus The Vampire Zoo. A fun looking book!

Hot Picks Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #399 and new comics coming this Wednesday 11/25/15. Click the link to read the article now.

Here is the Hot Picks #399 video below:

Moon Girl 1

Hot Pick Of The Week – Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Click To Buy/Bid

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Here’s the first appearance of Moon Girl and an overall fun book to check out this week. A keeper here.

Dark Knight III – Huge expectations for DC and fans alike. Spoiler alert coming up in case you don’t know, so discontinue reading if need be……..Frank Miller said that Carrie Kelly will take the Batman mantle in this latest installment. Wow another gender change for a big character, how original.

Silk #1 – InvestComics has and will always be on team Silk. Originality within this character brings the cultural and gender into play making for a possible deeper character driven hero for years to come.

Henchgirl #2 – Scout Comics has done it again. A sold out number issue (short print run) and a sold out number two issue. Henchgirl is hitting a cord with fans.

Jacked #1 – Maybe Hollywood or a television studio will come-a-knockin’ with this story. Or maybe not, but a DC/Vertigo title written by Eric Kripke will be an interesting book.

Well we cannot avoid the elephant in the room this week, so lets get it out the way shall we? Dark Knight III. Yep Dark Knight III and it’s 48 variant covers at last count. Absurdity at its finest here. 48 covers, is this truly necessary? Of course it’s not, but money is important for business, so while not necessary, it’s business. Before moving on, we want to point out that what you’re about to read regarding all of the hype regarding DKIII you may have heard here before over the years, just some rehash, an observation, some added numbers…..

Here are some things to consider if you’re in the market for that rare rare crazy variant. The first and most obvious, well maybe not so obvious to the potential buyer, but if you spend a whole bunch of money on a “rare” DKIII variant, you just bought a comic book “cover” for say….$150. So now you have yourself a “nice” pretty cover with the SAME EXACT insides as probably 1 million other comic books. Absolutely NOTHING different within the confines of YOUR pretty expensive cover’s insides as opposed to the other million copies. So your options are one or two things after you make your $150+ purchase. Get it graded (9.8 or more) and quadruple your intake (poor sap buying that! Wow) or hold onto it thinking you’ll have a comic to send your children to college with, which will never happen. Here’s a wake-up call. First and foremost, Dark Knight III will probably be a great book, better than Dark Knight II, but NOT better than Dark Knight I. Let’s have a clear understanding of something here, if you are an avid collector you will not have to read ahead here, but this is for the newer collectors and the others that have been brainwashed by websites trying to over-hype 48+ covers. The Dark Knight Returns (1986) came out right before Watchmen #1 (1986). Whether you are a fan of either of these books or not, these were game changers. Fifty years from now, pop culture will refer back to 1986’s Dark Knight and Watchmen books. It will not refer back to 2015 Dark Knight III. It just won’t happen. So lets do a quick reminder before the hate mail, Dark Knight III will probably be a great read. Better than II, but it probably won’t be a game changer. A game changer will always be a reference, a shape, a starting point, a long term monetary gain. Here is the pricing of three recent graded copies of DKI (1986) and what they sold for; 9.4 $220, 9.6 $239, 9.8 $750. Don’t you feel the pricing should be just a bit higher here, considering the iconic attachment of this book right? Well it probably would be, but one slight setback, too many copies out there. According to the CGC Census there are 344 9.8 graded copies and 725 at 9.6 and 350 at 9.4. and so on…..that’s a whole lot of comics. This is the reason the pricing will steadily increase over the years, but will never bounce to ridiculous numbers quickly like DKIII will in the immediate interim. Now lets relate ALL of this to Dark Knight III. The other speculative sites will inform buyers that this will be a book for the ages. Newsflash, It’s not going to be, but most buy into it and will jump all over it. All of those crispy 9.8 rare variants of Dark Knight III will go out to the grading companies and now you will eventually far exceed the 344 copies from 1986 that grade at 9.8. They will sell at or ABOVE the last sold copy from 1986. Does this make sense at all to you? Oh yes yes, it’s a special cover that’s right. The inside is still the same right? Yes yes it is, we’ve already established that. But man is this a great money grab right? There will be over hyped buyers listening to these other sites and essentially making a bad purchase, but readers here will be smart and sell their books if they can double/triple their money. Do not let greed set in, you will eventually lose.

Dark Knight I (1986) contained the first appearance of Carrie Kelly. It was written Frank Miller. Art by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Dark Knight III this Wednesday will be written by Brian Azzarello and ….Frank Miller? Back to that in a sec. Art by Andy Kubert /Klaus Janson. So it’s said that Frank Miller had nothing to do with the story. DC attached his name as though Miller was an intricate part of the story, but he kind of wasn’t. Frank Miller did state though that he will be THE writer on Dark Knight IV. Oh joy, 80 variants for that one we hope!

Will Dark Knight III contain that all too important first appearance to keep its lure? Will the story be so groundbreaking that it changes the comic book medium? This is the only way in the comic collectors hobby that DKIII will sustain its long term monetary value in ANY way. Otherwise what you will have in that $600 Jim Lee variant cover is…..a pretty cover. Good luck with that. Invest that $600 on a Silver Age or Bronze Age book.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

In closing regarding DKIII. Before anyone sends the hate mail we are not suggesting you do not buy DKIII or any of its variants. We are not down on DKIII. We’re not saying NOT to buy it. You absolutely should. It’s probably going to be a cool read, but what we are saying is not to get caught up in the hype and waste your hard earned money. If you dig a variant and it’s expensive, but YOU dig it, then by all means buy it. Buy what you like because you connect with it. We like to inform collectors of the reality of things and not the fantasy when it comes to speculation. Barring any major introductions or groundbreaking storytelling, this series at the end of the day will be just another good Batman story. Which is fine.

NOTE: To any of the Frank Miller fans, did you know we have a Frank Miller checklist on InvestComics? Yep. Right HERE. Have fun and click on those Miller books you either didn’t know about or forgot about altogether!

(insert sarcasm here) Oh my goodness! It’s Harley Quinn on the cover of a Deathstroke comic! Will Deathstroke #12 be just like the RARE Scooby Doo Team-Up #12 Harley Quinn comic that InvestComics did NOT recommend and sold for a whopping $5.99 on Ebay last week?! No, but it’s a bad as* team-up and should be checked out.

Check out Justice League 3001 #6 as a new race of New Gods make an appearance.

A must read new DC/Vertigo title this Wednesday; Jacked #1. We can see this “ordinary” character becoming a movie or TV series one day.

Image Comics informs their Black Magick readers that a major character introduction will come in Black Magick #2. Sticking with the tip-off deal here from Image, Rumble #9 is set to introduce two major characters into the fray.

WWE fans may want to be put on alert as Ringside #1 from Image Comics hits this week. A violent wrestling story from writer Joe Keatinge. No John Cena here….maybe that’s for the best?

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Saga #31 will return its story line to real time.

Back in 2010 InvestComics pointed out a nice cheap Jack Kirby number one issue/first appearance. It was Devil Dinosaur #1 (1978) and a near mint raw copy was selling for about $9. King Kirby was the writer, artist, editor, and the cover artist of this book for most of the nine issue run. A graded 9.8 PGX graded sold last week for about $74. Still a bargain actually! Why the mention of Devil Dinosaur? Well a sleeper book may hit this Wednesday so don’t nap on it. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 will be a good book. A few variants available, but the regular Amy Reeder cover is our fav. Also a note here and maybe more important than anything we just said. Back in 1978 not only was Devil Dinosaur’s first appearance in the number one issue, but it was also the first appearance of Moon Boy. Guess who’s first appearance is in the 2015 number issue? Yep, Moon Girl.

Regular visitors to the InvestComics website know that we are big fans of Silk. Always have been. We have always felt there is more upside to her character than many other new female characters within the Marvel Universe. Silk #1 in it’s second volume already hits this Wednesday. Written by Robbie Thompson and art by Stacey Lee. You’re going to have to fight through a lot of the Silk #1 volume 1 to find Silk #1 volume 2 on Ebay right now. The popularity of the latest series should overtake the current 300+ listings of volume 1. Or after you click the link, you can input “vol 2” on the search bar! Some still come up differently on Ebay, so you’ll have to try different searches; i.e. Volume 2, Silk #1 vol 2, Silk vol 2 #1, etc…..

So what does Marvel do if they A: don’t want to pursue the Rom character back from obscurity or B: never cared enough to even think they want Rom back so they lost out to IDW Publishing in getting Rom back first even if they did in fact want him. Confused yet? We are. Anyway, comic fans know by now that Rom Space Knight is now at IDW Publishing. With that, Marvel will try to one up IDW this Wednesday with Venom Space Knight #1. No for real, no joke. No Amazing Spider-Man #300 Venom here, no this is Venom Space Knight! Marvel put writer Robbie Thompson and artist Ariel Olivetti on this book. They’re looking for a pop here. Will they get it? Hmmm…..maybe not? Maybe? But the Mike Deodato Jr. variant is awesome though isn’t it?

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

What happened to Fiona Staples on Archie?? Welcome artist Annie Wu to Archie #4. Fantastic Paul Renaud variant cover.

InvestComics gave you a heads up on Henchgirl #1 from Scout Comics. It sold out it’s short print run rather quick. Now the followup; Henchgirl #2. Will the second issue dictate where the series is headed? Will fans pick up on it? If you dug the first issue, show your support. Oh wait wait, we forgot to mention, Henchgirl #2 is sold out. Maybe the fans are speaking out already!

Superstar artist Jim Lee is back on a Batman book. Batman Europa #1 will be a four part mini-series featuring top talent in the industry. Written by Matteo Casali and Brian Azzarello. This four part series will be a great read as well as getting your eye candy. What more can a comic fan ask for here? Batman vs Joker by premiere creators, Azzarello, Lee, and more? Yes this is a no-brainer.

Let’s not forget what Jim Lee brought to the table back in 2002/2003 with his iconic Batman run starting with Batman #608 and also creating one of the most iconic Batman/Superman comic covers of all time; Batman #612. He did previous Batman books before those though. And if you’re a Jim Lee fan, you must check out the extensive InvestComics Jim Lee Creator Spotlight checklist right HERE. You’ll find some great Jim Lee books there.

Bizarro #6 will introduce a new villain; Queen Tut. Martian Manhunter #6 features a new female martian character.

A new DC/Vertigo title to check out; Red Thorn #1.

The speculator will have to be on alert this Wednesday for the new Image comic Huck #1. With Mark Millar writing, it is not inconceivable to think that a movie studio will come knocking and before you know it, Huck is announced as a possible movie project. This happens quite often in the Millar camp. The artwork will be done by superstar Rafael Albuquerque. A very simple story here about a man (Huck) with superpowers (assuming) does something nice everyday, but his neighbors keep his good deeds hush-hush, until one day…..! The Image solicit is pushing this comic as something fans have never seen before and will love it. (*knock knock knock) Get the door, we think Universal Studios is knocking.

Although Marvel’s Black Knight character has had several first appearance as different alias, Dane Whitman would be the one with the most credits. First appearing in Avengers #47 (1967), Black Knight will appear this Wednesday in his own series Black Knight #1 starring as……you guessed it, Dane Whitman. The new series will be written by Frank Tieri. Here’s something to ponder. Marvel (Disney) has yet to even tease anything regarding the “knights” genre. Not even remotely, nothing, zilch, nada. If EVER, Dane Whitman will be tapped as the lead character. He’s been a main staple with the Marvel Universe a long time and he’s been in a ton of Avengers books. Yes indeed, a ponder and a speculative nugget. You’re welcome.

Only three issues in and some silliness has crept into Captain America Sam Wilson #3. This issue features the return of Capwolf. Yes that’s correct, Capwolf. Maybe writer Nick Spencer makes this work, who knows? If you feel captivated by the notion of the Capwolf character, you can get his first appearance in Captain America #405 (1992).

Is there any reason to be excited about The Mighty Thor #1? We all know Jane Foster is Thor. Now we simply don’t care anymore, the climax is over. We’ve been dealt the cards, we saw what we have and we folded. We’re done here. Do we need to carry on the nonsense of having Thor as a female character now? We say, not for long. The whole idea that Jane is battling cancer and losing is a very sad thing. She’s a beloved character, but this may give Marvel the “out” in order to bring back the Thor we all know and love. If sales don’t meet expectations, which we don’t think they will, then Jane will eventually die and Thor will come back. Ms. Marvel #1 on the other hand has more upside if there were to be a side by side longevity comparison. Stronger character traits (not history) and overall more appeal.

At first glance, New Avengers #3 looks as though Superman is on the cover! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s a Marvel comic!

Sticking with the perplexed department here, what in God’s green earth is Secret Wars Too #1 about?

Marvel will give Spider-Woman another go; Spider-Woman #1. The longest lasting series for Spider-Woman ever was 50 issues. Her second longest? 18 issues. So lets all hope (no pun intended) writer Dennis Hopeless gets the ship right a bit this time. Starting off things with a pregnant Jessica Drew on just about all the covers. That in itself feels a bit odd no? Here’s hoping she has an easier labor than the series will.

So here are a list of comics below that collectors should be aware. A talented young career thus far, but so full of life.

30 Days of Night #1 (2011) IDW’s hit comic. Steve Niles writes, Sam Kieth art and cover art by Fiona Staples.

A mega hit from the onset. Fiona does everything in this comic but write it. That’s left up to Brian K. Vaughan of course. Art/inks/colors/letters and cover by Fiona.

Life with Archie #24 (2012) Here’s an important collectors issue. This is the first Archie work for Fiona (cover art only). It’s a magazine variant. She will be an intricate part in the relaunch of the Archie Comics line coming up very soon. Archie #1 will be all Fiona Staples with some Mark Waid (writer) thrown in.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2014) A variant cover supplied here. An original thought went into this Spidey variant, unlike the same old Spidey swinging from the buildings.

There are certainties in life. There is birth, taxes (in most places), death, Sofia Vergara, and Archie Comics.

Pep_Comics_22_First_Archie_First_Betty_InvestComicsInvestComics has always been a big supporter of Archie Comics Publications. Back in 2009 we had a chance to speak with one of the premiere artist within the AC line; Dan Parent. And in more recent times, this past September 2014 we spoke to Alex Segura; Senior Vice President of Publicity/Marketing.

Some may disagree, but if you ask your spouse, girlfriend, best friends, sister, grandfather, grandmother or aunts and uncles who Deadpool is, they may give you that blank stare and shrug their shoulders; “I don’t know.” Ask these same family members or people, “you know who Archie is” and the response will probably be either one or two ways. “Archie who?” The question with a question would be as if you’re speaking of a friend or family member. Now give those same people the clue that don’t know your line of questioning, you say “comic books?” The overwhelming response is immediate. “Oh oh yeah, that red headed dude with the girlfriends. Yeah I know that guy”.

So what’s the point here? Simple actually. A real comic book collector knows what the point is here, but lets first talk about the Fanboy response for a minute, the close minded/I only know super-heroes ones. The fanboy cringes as though someone scraped their knuckles across a blackboard when “Archie” is mentioned anywhere. Already the fanboy is disgusted they have made it this far into the article reading about Archie and will either A: leave now or B: stay because they yearn to escape the fanboy vortex they so desire to get out of. For those who do not know about Archie Comics or those who are willing to educate themselves a little bit, stick around. There are some pretty heavy investments to seriously consider coming up in a little bit as well as some fantastic reading material too.
Archie Comics and the Archie characters are as timeless as they come. More so than any Wolverine, Deadpool or Nightwing character will ever be. DC Comics has been around for 80 years (including when they were National Allied Publications). Marvel Comics has been around for 75 years (Including when they were Timely Comics). Archie Comics has been around for almost 75 years. Archie began their company as MLJ. It wasn’t until the late 1950’s did they adopt the name Archie Comics Publications. Through changes aplenty including being a publicly held company, lawsuits, a failed imprint; Red Circle Comics, to even more lawsuits, the company has endured its fair share of ups and downs to say the least. There are so many moving parts to their history that it simply cannot be covered here. Of course, hopefully many of you reading this will head on over to the internet to find out more details on this fabulous company.

Archie Comics is on the verge, the cusp of busting loose in so many ways it’s going to be unbelievable to the average comic collector. Especially the ones that think Archie Comics are for kids or for girls (The fanboy). That type of thinking is not only the most naive thought process, it’s as uneducated as it comes. In recent years Archie has not only stepped up the way their product/brand appears as far as marketing and art, but their story lines include an adult rated zombie series, the death of Archie, The birth of children, a handicapped character, the marriage of major players, introductions of new characters including a gay character named Kevin Keller, and so on and so on.

Recently, Archie Comics announced a major redesign of their entire universe. They also announced new areas of exploration which includes; television, movie, and merchandising. An imprint named Dark Circle Comics will also debut in 2015. And in addition to that exciting news, a relaunch of Archie Comics starting from number one! What a way to celebrate right?!

With all of the great things happening for quite some time now and the future for Archie Publications, it’s probably a good time to get a checklist together. A checklist that only InvestComics can deliver. We have given fans the most extensive comic book checklist on the internet. We’ve had Batman, Spider-Man, Avengers, Hulk, Superman, and Walking Dead just to name a few. Now we will cover Archie Comics! Get your wallets out because you’ll be spending some big bucks for some major players, but they will pay back majorly because of the publicity Archie and the gang are about to undertake in 2015. Wow this is going to be a huge year for them and for the speculator!

One huge takeaway from the research we did was that there are not that many graded copies of some key issues. Even some of the Bronze/Modern comics have flown under the radar. Many of the comics can be pulled out of quarter boxes or yard sales. There is potential here. A lot of it. There is so much money to possibly be made from grading/signature series, it’s almost mind-boggling. Get on this gravy ship InvestComics fans because WE are about to change things regarding the aftermarket when it comes to Archie Comics. If Archie Comics publications hits its stride in 2015 (and it will), the aftermarket will explode.

One last thing. There are and will be many Archie Comics inadvertently omitted. Understand that there is 75 years of comic books to cover here. Not every book will be hit upon. This was not done with the intent of excluding them on purpose, but a simple case of not listing it due to the complexity and range to cover. If you have an Archie Comic that YOU think is worthy of being on this list, then please by all means share it below and on our Facebook pages. Be sure to remember one thing though, when Archie Comics start up-ticking, InvestComics was the driving force in letting the speculators know about the new books to look for. Don’t be the creator of the force, but be the deliverer of the message from InvestComics. In other words, give credit where credit is do. The InvestComics team worked on this article (checklist) for all to enjoy and officially start the Archie Comics movement. Now……

Happy reading and happy hunting!

InvestComics Hot Picks Special – Archie Comics Checklist

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (1)

It begins with Archie Andrews himself. A bit of an Incredible Hulk #180 vs #181 going on here. Cameo vs first full appearance.

Archie Comics #282 (2nd print) (1979) – This second print comic is a rare one within the Comic collection lure. A 9.4 graded sold for $250 in 2013. Nice deal for a comic you might find in the 25 cent bin someplace. Get high grades here speculators….

Archie Comics #616/617 (2011) – The presidential race was between Barack Obama and John McCain. The variant covers on these Archie Comics featured the battle and friendship of Barack Obama and Sarah Palin? Yep.

Archie Comics #626 (Sketch Variant) (2012) – This comic cracks the checklist due to who is on the cover and what can be done about it. Ex New York Giant football great Michael Strahan dons the cover as Dan Parent lends his incredible talent. Since Michael does a show in New York city every day of the week and Dan is available at most comic conventions it’s a no brainier here to get these two to sign your book and get it graded.

Archie Comics #627 (2012) – Archie meets up with the rock band Kiss. A 9.6 (highest grade) signed by Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Alex Segura and Dan Parent sold for $101 in 2012.

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (2)

Pep Comics

Pep Comics #22 (1941) – Well this is the holy grail of Archie Comics. The Action Comics #1 if you will. The awesomeness of this comic not only contains the first appearance of Archie Andrew, but it also features the first appearance of his right hand man, his com padre, his brother; Jughead. It ALSO contains the first appearance of Betty Cooper. So not only is Pep #22 valuable for obvious reasons, but it’s a three for one deal. Find this comic book and make a deal with the dealer. Any price you negotiate will be a good one. Look for prices to steadily climb as Archie Publications start making their move. A move into every household around the world. A move into the young generation in which they will ignite a new fire to the likes we haven’t seen since Twilight did it. Be ready….

Pep Comics #26 (1942) – So it only took 4 issues for the famous threesome to begin. And the beginning of a 73 year headache for Archie! Some might even say it’s a good headache to have! The pricing seems almost comical for the rest of the Archie gang. Set to be an obvious major player too, Veronica Lodges’ first appearance goes here. The highest grade on census is a 5.0, selling for $5,150 in mid 2013. A buy right now raw. Grade it. This is an absolute bargain.

Pep Comics #31 (1942) – Veronica Lodges’ dad makes his debut. Hiram Lodge commanded $4,550 for his first appearance; An 8.0 grade in late 2014.

Pep Comics #36 (1943) – The first official Archie Comics cover. A 5.5 recently sold for $5,378.

Pep Comics #46 (1944) – Only a couple of graded issues here. The most recent 1.0 grade sold for $90. The owner of the hangout the Archie crew will be at most of the time; his first appearance; “Pops” Tate.

Pep Comics #78 (1950) – The first appearance of the smartest kid in all of Riverdale; Dilton. A 2006 9.2 graded copy sold for a mere $478. A recent sale in early 2014, 8.5 grade sold for $455. What a steal right now for that “nerd” that will probably capture the younger audience’s attention and be beloved.

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (3)

Jackpot Comics

Jackpot Comics #5 (1942) – Collectors get a glimpse of Archie’s mean pal Reggie Mantle. This is his cameo in one panel. The most recent graded copy sold for $1,933. It was a 2.0. However, back in 2003 a 9.0 copy sold for $2,128. A bargain. A very large bargain. But wait, there’s more. This comic happens to also have another first appearance. Riverdale’s teacher Waldo Weatherbee.

Jackpot Comics #6 (1942) – The first full appearance of Reggie Mantle. A 4.5 graded sold for $384 in late 2014. In 2002 an 8.5 graded sold for a mere $920. Wow what a great buy that was.

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (5)

Archie’s Pal Jughead

Number 1 (1949) – First appearance of the school bully Moose Mason. An 8.5 sold for $2,749 back in 2009.

Number 5 (1951) – First appearance of Midge Klump; Moose’s girlfriend. She first appeared in two comics at the same time. This one and Betty and Veronica #4 (1951). 8.5 is the highest grade for both of these comics on census. The Jughead sold for $455 in 2014 and the Betty/Veronica sold for $1,016 in 2012.

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (6)

Archie’s Girls: Betty and Veronica

Number 1 (1950) – A 4.0 copy sold in late 2014 for $525. The best grade (9.0) sold for $3,884 in 2006.

Number 289 (1980) – A scarce second print exist. No grades in the census.

Number 320 (1982) – First appearance of bombshell Cheryl Blossom. This key comic needs to be in your collection. A Cheryl Blossom bombshell character on television or a movie will draw a lot of attention. A 9.6 sold for $600 in 2012. Get this comic now.

Archie_Comics_InvestComics (4)

MORE KEY Archie Comics……….

Archie’s Madhouse #22 (1962) – Every click needs a witch right? Well here’s the first appearance of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. When the Archie brand takes off, this will be one of the spinoffs….I guarantee it. A 6.0 grade sold for a measly $380 in late 2014. A fantastic buy.

Archie’s Pals & Gals #23 (1962) – Another spinoff guaranteed to happen when Archie catches on. The first appearance of Josie. Yes that Josie. A 9.0 sold for $880 in 2013. This is also the first appearance of Melody; the drummer of the Pussycats.

Josie and the Pussycat’s #45 (1969) – The birth of the all girl rock band. When Archie takes off, so will this all girl group. They will, without a shadow of a doubt become a huge selling all girl rock band. This comic has so much potential upside it’s ridiculous. Probably one of if not THE Archie book on this checklist to get. A 7.0 in mid 2013 sold for $150. Only two graded in the census. Hunt this down and buy it now.

She’s Josie #1 (1963) – Josie’s own comic book. One graded copy at 6.0 sold for $52 in 2010.

Archie Giant Series Magazine #579 (1988) – When a real comic collector these days thinks of Archie Comics, they think Dan Parent. Dan is as much the responsible culprit of bringing Archie Comics to the new levels that are leading up to the entire reboot in 2015. Think of Dan as the Geoff Johns for DC. An innovator for the line.

Free Comic Book Day 2015 Hot Picks

DIAMONDLOGOcolor

 

 

 

 

Free Comic Book Day will be on May 2 2015. So many cool comics to read and a few to speculate on too. There will be two tiers this year. The Gold Tier and the Silver Tier. The Gold tier comics will be available at every comic shop. The Silver tier comics will be available at select stores. So you know what this means right? If there are any possible speculative comics to maybe grab, it would be from the Silver pile because only comic shops that participated will be getting those particular books, thus leading to the possibility of a shortage on a demanded free comic.

Let’s check out some of the speculative highlights.

Click on the RED links or comic covers to buy/bid on Ebay. Most of these comics are not available yet. Come back here after new comic book day if you missed out on any of the books you wanted. The links should bring a better search then.

 

Gold Tier

Dark Circle Comics Preview – Archie Comic Publications

Archie Comics is about to turn it up a notch in 2015. InvestComics did an interview with Alex Segura: Senior Vice President of publicity/marketing of Archie Comics in September right HERE. Alex told us then that there are very big plans for Archie Publications. We know this and are on board 100 percent. There have been some naysayers over the years that InvestComics has encountered on its platform regarding Archie Comics. Not quite sure why that is exactly, but uninformed collectors do not see a value in the speculative marketplace and that could not be further from the truth. Those people will be eating their words by this time next year. Please quote InvestComics on this if you’d like. Archie Comics will in fact arrive in 2015. This Dark Circle imprint is only a backdrop that will eventually lead to bigger things as well for the soon to be 75 year old company. More on why and on Archie Comics on InvestComics in the near future, stay tuned…..

Fight Club – Dark Horse Comics

There are several stories going on in this free preview book. The Goon (new story), The Strain (New story from Guillermo del Toro) and the premiere of the Fight Club. This is a good one to pick up.

Marvel Secret Wars – Marvel Comics

Most likely this new spin on the Secret Wars from Marvel will be a big draw. Maybe this free comic will feature a first appearance or something extremely important regarding the event. Who knows? But it’s worth getting regardless because he story will kick ass anyways.

DC Comics

….Will remain mum on their free comic book day release. Get it, same protocol as the Marvel release. We’re quite sure the DC freebie will be leading up to something huge. Stay up to date with DC’s secret on freecomicbookday.com.

Silver Tier

Captain_Canuck_InvestComicsCHAPTERHOUSE_CAPTAINCANUCKCaptain Canuck – Chapter House

Canada’s very own “Superman/Captain America” makes another attempt at trying to capture the hearts of American comic collectors. Will our friendly neighbors succeed this time remains to be seen. In the meantime, if you have a few bucks, anywhere from $4 to $75 you can own a Captain Canuck first appearance from the 1975 self titled Captain Canuck #1. You never know….

Mercury Heat Debut – Avatar Press

This sneak peak looks like a fantastic story brewing. Pick this up.

TMNT: Prelude To Vengence – IDW Publishing

Kodansha Comics Sampler – Kodansha Comics

This freebie includes a few samples of KC’s Anime/Manga line. Attack on Titan is one of the samples to be featured. Interesting comic that Attack on Titan is. The number one issue has gone to 6 printings already. Pretty sweet.

Stan Lee’s Shakra The Incredible – Liquid Comics

Based on the cartoon short we get the debut of Shakra in comic book form. Awesome for the kids!

Lady Justice #1 – Super Genius

This comic has all of the greats on the cover. KRS-One, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Easy E, Tupac…..yes this is awesome beyond awesome. Meet some of these guys and get them to sign your book (witnessed of course) and grade it. You’ll have a one of a kind!

PAPERCUTZ_LADYJUSTICE Wheel_of_Worlds_InvestComicsDC Comics

They remain mum here as well on the Silver side. Get your fix on what they’re up to by visiting freecomicbookday.com.

Avengers #1 – Marvel Comics

Marvel isn’t very secretive about their plans. Check out the Avengers #1 comic for free. And the best part of this freebie is the a “new threat”? Is this an introduction? If it is, you better get this.

All and all a terrific free comic book day is headed our way. So many comics to read, so little time! Well we make time to read, but so little time before May 6 hits!

Be sure to bring the little ones if you have any. Comic books are a very good reading tool for the children. Have them read the Shakra comic to you or any comic they look interested in, it’s amazing to share the excitement with a child this way. It’s like Christmas in May!

Read wisely. Carpe Diem.
