Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – The first appearance of Harley Quinn. This comic features the “animated” version of Harley and not the actual “continuity” Harley Quinn” within the DC Universe. There are approximately 14+ or so books before she ever appeared within the confines of the actual DC Universe. Here are some of those early appearances (listed below).

Batman Adventures: Mad Love #1 (1994) – Second “non-continuity” Harley appearance.

Batman Adventures Annual #1 (1994) – Third appearance and legend John Byrne actually pencils a Harley Quinn story here. How great is that???!!

Batman Adventures #28 (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #1 (1995)

Batman Adventures: Holiday Special (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #8 (1996)

Batman and Superman Adventures: Worlds Finest (1997)

Batman Chronicles Gallery #1 (1997) – Harley made an appearance in the regular DC Universe with a pinup in this comic before the next book listed here.

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – Here is the first official Harley Quinn entry (appearance) into the DC Universe. Also an origin issue. A modern day classic cover; Alex Ross.

Batman No Mans Land Gallery #1 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance is very much like her first. In a gallery book. So this means that this comic is not really recognized as her second appearance in the DC Universe, very much like her first appearance.

Batman #570 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance. Many collectors are hoarding these away for a future gauntlet throw down to maximize their potential earnings. Not an easy book to get.

Detective Comics #737 (1999) – The third appearance of Harley Quinn.

Action Comics #765 (2000) – Harley steps out of a Batman comic universe for the first time. This comic is also the first time she appears in the same book as Superman. A definite collectors item here and it’s an affordable book too!

Harley Quinn #1 (2000) – 7 years after her debut into the comic book world, Harley finally gets her own title.

Wonder Woman #164 (2001) – Harley in the same comic as Wonder Woman for the first time. A ridiculously gorgeous Adam Hughes cover as well.

Batman 613

Batman #613 – Click to Buy/Bid

Harley Quinn #4 (2001) – First appearance of the Quinntets.

Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War #1 (2001) – This comic not only possess a great story, but it also marks the first time Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti get their creative Quinn popped. Amanda and Jimmy are THE go-to when it comes to Harley Quinn and this is their first work on the character.

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

Jokers Last Laugh Secret Files #1 (2001) – A couple of months later, Amanda and Jimmy do a backup story in this book. The beginnings of the Quinn/Conner/Palmiotti threesome. A Threesome that will become a monthly romp in about 13 years.

Batman #613 (2003) – During Jim Lee’s epic Batman run, he penciled Harley into the Hush story line. He got her right on the cover too. When a talent like Jim Lee draws any character for the first time, it’s time to take notice.

Harley Quinn #38 (2004) – Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard pencils the final issue of Harley’s first comic book run. Nice way to go out right? With Charlie at the helm and a low print run, this makes for an attractive comic.

Suicide Squad #1 (2011) – This comic is essentially Harley’s first appearance “post Flashpoint” and the character in the movie will be in direct correlation to THIS particular time frame. Hence the high mark selling points in the aftermarket. Her second appearance came a week later in Batman #1 (2011).

Suicide Squad #6 (2012) – The origin of Harley Quinn. The first of two parts. Two major comics for ANY Quinn collector. Great cover too.

Suicide Squad #7 (2012) The origin of Harley Quinn concludes. Another stellar cover.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 9-11-13

(Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and more so for entertainment purposes. Any opinions or expression of investments should be used as a judgement upon the investor, not InvestComics. Please use your own discretion when investing and have fun.)

Last week InvestComics Hot Picks #285 covered the arrival of DC’s 3D comic cover onslaught. The 3D covers turned out to be a huge success for DC judging from the demand in the aftermarket as well as complete sell outs in every comic shop across the nation. One particular comic is commanding in the range of $199 to $300 in the aftermarket. The “winner” in last week’s 3D sweepstakes has to go to Forever Evil #1 – Ivan Reis’ retail variant. The ratio of this comic is driving the price up tremendously. How about 1 variant per comic shop? That’s a nice ratio isn’t it? Get this bad boy in a CGC graded case, a 9.8 or higher and double your cash instantly. Hurry though; the 3D madness will not last forever. Not saying that prices will plummet here, but these prices WILL level out and some speculators may get caught holding their purse. Do not overpay to get any of these books. Be a wise speculator, this isn’t the 1990’s anymore. Although it may feel that way at the moment, this will all die down and level off. That said you must look for the rare ratio 3D books in order to make some serious bank. If you are collecting all of the 3D covers, be sure to get two copies of each, although many retail outfits are limiting one per customer (even Midtown Comics in New York are limiting 1 per). So get your brother, friend, mom, dad, sister, whomever to buy a copy so that you have 2 in your stash. Why two copies you may ask? The reason is simple and any collector already knows; a nice reader/collector copy and one to put together in a mass sale of all 52 variants. What some speculators may not be aware of is some of the aftermarket prices for (pre-ordering) all 52 covers. They are fetching upwards to $390. Not too shabby. To reiterate, the 3D craze WILL NOT last forever, so if you are going to do a mass kill on selling all 52 3D books, you must do so in a small window. The market will in fact come down on these sooner than later. You will have quite a few that will break the outside mold and become a $300 book all onto itself like the Forever Evil # variant. THOSE are the ‘prizes’ here fans. THOSE are the ones to get your hands on. Not an easy task, but getting those will make your bank account very happy. Especially if you get them professionally graded by CGC and score a high grade.

As this Wednesday approaches, DC Comics continues their trend with the 3D covers. InvestComics will follow the same trend too. As we did last week we will be breaking down each comic with the first appearance of the particular villain taking over the book. It’s so much fun to see where some of these villains came from and how much they have evolved and devolved over the course of time. Not every redo is a home run guys/gals. Sometimes things should stay the way they are. Don’t fix what ain’t broke.

DC Comics 3D Comics 9/11/13

[scrollGallery id=296]

Teen Titans (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Trigon looks really angry on this 3D cover doesn’t he? Hate to be on that Titans team looking at him. Trigon first appeared in The New Teen Titans #4 (1981), creators George Perez and Marv Wolfman at the helm here. This should already be in your collection.

Justice League (2011) #23.2 – Here’s another first appearance that any comic collector should already have in their stash. Another 80’s book; Omega Men #3 (1983) features the first look at Lobo.

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.2 – An interesting choice going with a Killer Frost takeover. The frosty one first appeared in Firestorm #3 (1978).

Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.2 – The wannabe (appearance wise – Thanos/Darkseid) Mongul takes over this comic. And another 1980’s comic; check out his debut in DC Comics Presents #27 (1980).

Flash (2011) #23.2 – Reverse-Flash will give Flash a very hard time in his comic book this month. The first Professor Zoom is in 1963’s Flash #139. Love that yellow suit!!

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #15.2 – Boy you talk about a fantastic makeover, this would be it. Solomon Grundy looks like a menace on the 3D cover here. Good job DC! Grundy first appeared all the way back in All-American Comics #61 (1944).

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.2 – The enigmatic Harley Quinn brings her craziness to this comic. Check out the iconic comic (cover wise) Batman: Harley Quinn one shot from 1999 to get her debut.

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.2 – And speaking of iconic. The awesomeness of the Riddler appears this week as his hostile takeover will be fantastic probably. Look at that cover! Beautiful! His debut came in Batman #140 (1961). This is definitely a comic to have in your collection. If you do not own this comic, you need to buy it. The Riddler character will always be an uptick character. No losing here. None.

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.2 – If one had to choose the best rouge gallery for one particular DC character; it would have to be Batman, right? Well maybe that’s up for debate on for another day, but Mr. Freeze dons the 3D cover this week and his debut is in Batman #121 (1959). Cover art by Curt Swan? Yes I will have one thank you!

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.2 – The very recent introduction and popular villains ‘Court of Owls’ will take over the Bats and Rob book. COO (abbreviation) were spoken about in the latest Batman #1 New 52 series, but it wasn’t until Batman #5 (New 52) they made their debut.

Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #23.1 – Speaking of rogue galleries, you want to talk about some of the weakest in all of the DC U? Yes Aquaman may be cool now, but boy do his villains need some serious makeovers! Black Manta is no exception here. Debuting in Aquaman #35 (1967).

Superman #23.2 – In actuality, Supes isn’t that far behind in weak villains either. Why do you think we always see Lex and Zod everywhere? Well Brainiac, like so many others have been through the ringer with the changing of his looks as well. If things work, no change is needed, if things do not, changes are always present. Case in point with a lot of these new looks for everyone over the years. But anyways, getting off track here, check out the Brains first appearance in Action Comics #242 (1958).

Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.2 – Here we have one of the bad asses in the Superman gallery. Zod! General Zod made his debut in Adventure Comics #283 (1961). Another one of those “can’t lose” books. Although many changes over the years, Zod remains a force in the collectors market.

That’s it for the 3D madness, now onto the number one issue madness this week! But first let’s cover the double digit number one; Captain America (2012 7th Series) #11. In this issue the question is asked, who is Iron Nail? Pick this up and find out!

In the new Mighty Avengers (2013) #1, the team will face off against Proxima Midnight. PM’s arrival was in the recent pages of New Avengers #8. Marvel will look to milk the “Infinity” drama for all it’s worth in Infinity Hunt (2013) #1. This issue will bring a new ‘Contest of Champions’ to the table. If you don’t know exactly what Contest of Champions is, well shame on you! Check out the original classic from 1982; Marvel Super Hero Contest of Champions three issue limited series. Here is a quick creators list on this series; Gruenwald, Mantlo, Romita Jr., and Layton. Is there any reason anyone would not know about this comic??

And now we visit the slew of number one issues headed your way this Wednesday. How does anyone afford this hobby anymore?

Rapid fire: A few number one issues REALLY need to be on your radar this week. The aftermarket pricing will reflect the SOLD OUT sign on these if the story is well received. Mythopolis (2013 Ardden) #1 is SOLD OUT, Kings Watch (2013 Dynamite) #1 is SOLD OUT, Hit List (2013) Zenescope #1 might be a sleeper, but Zenescope comics never fare that well in the aftermarket, Locke and Key (2013 7th Series) Alpha #1 will be on the SOLD OUT list shortly, Genie The Genius (2013 Ape) #1 will follow that road, Low Society (2013) #0 may also be a sleeper; it’s on the verge of a sellout, the wildly popular television series will get its own book; Sons of Anarchy (2013 Boom) #1. Live television series’ do not always equate to demand on the comic book front. Actually it’s an extremely rare feat that success is found in the comic book market from a TV show. Eternal Warrior (2013 Valiant) #1 will join the Valiant list of successful sellouts, while Mars Attacks Judge Dredd (2013 IDW) #1 will cater to the Mars Attacks groupie’s.

Another busy week! Don’t forget about the latest InvestComics contest! –WIN a Superman Unchained: Director’s Cut #1 SIGNED by Scott Snyder From InvestComics!! – A big response so far, but you can win it if you’re not in it!

Be sure to sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter too. The recent contest was introduced to the fans via the Newsletter! More cool contest and news going there first.
