Click to Buy/Bid – Savage She-Hulk #9
The Savage She-Hulk #1 (1980) – The first appearance/origin of Jennifer Walters; She-Hulk. Art from John Buscema and Charles Stone. Written by Stan Lee. Cover by John Buscema.
The Savage She-Hulk #2 (1980) – First appearances of Buck Bukowski, Lou Monkton, Dr. Daniel Ridge Sr., Zapper Ridge, Nick Trask, Jill Ridge, and William Morris Walters.
The Savage She-Hulk #6 (1980) – She-Hulk first teams with Iron Man. A Bob (Mr. Iron Man) Layton cover too. First appearance of Ralphie Hutchins. Lots more on Ralphie in a bit.
The Savage She-Hulk #17 (1981) – First appearance of Man-Elephant. Yep. At least this character has about five appearances in their 35 year history. Disney needs to use this dude.
The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Click to Buy/Bid – Savage She-Hulk #21
Click to Buy/Bid – Savage She-Hulk #22
The Savage She-Hulk #19 (1981) – Ralphie Hutchins clones himself. He creates many first appearances as he tries to kill She-Hulk as different villains. This issue, he first appears as Brute.
Marvel Team-Up #107 (1981) – Jennifer steps outside of her solo series for the first time to join the rest of the Marvel Universe. Here she teams with Spider-Man. Art and cover by the late great Herb Trimpe.
Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.
Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.
Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.
The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.
Thor #353 (1985) – Legend Walt Simonson started his epic run 16 issues ago. Forever changing the Thor character. Okay not about Thor here, but about the legend Walt Simonson writing, drawing, inking She-Hulk in this book.
Marvel Graphic Novel #18 (1985) – John Byrne gets an entire book to draw and write on the She-Hulk. Not just any book, a Marvel graphic novel. That’s 72 oversized pages of awesome John Byrne She-Hulk.
Longshot #4 (1985) – She-Hulk appearance. Art from Art Adams. She makes the Adams cover too.
Click to Buy/Bid – Fantastic Four #286
Click to Buy/Bid – Fantastic Four #291
Click to Buy/Bid – Fantastic Four #293
Click to Buy/Bid – Thing #36
Fantastic Four #286 (1986) – John Byrne writes with Chris Claremont. John draws with Butch Guice.
Fantastic Four #291 (1986) – This cover pays homage to Action Comics #1. She-Hulk takes the place of Superman and holds the car above her head. This John Byrne cover is on point.
Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.
Click to Buy/Bid – Fantastic Four #296
Click to Buy/Bid – Comet Man #4
Click to Buy/Bid – Marvel Fanfare #37
Click to Buy/Bid – Alpha Flight #61
Fantastic Four #296 (1986) – Jim Shooter and Stan Lee write this comic. Barry Windsor-Smith cover.
Comet Man #4 (1987) – This odd comic features Kelley Jones art and a Bill Sienkiewicz She-Hulk cover.
Marvel Fanfare #37 (1988) – Norm Breyfogle She-Hulk art. What’s not to love here? Norm also does the She-Hulk back cover.
Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely!
Sensational She-Hulk #19 (1990) – The first appearances of Nosferata and Jack Serious (Joker). This is the first of a two-parter spoofing DC’s Batman. Another awesome Keown cover as well. We love this book.
Buy/Bid – Sensational She-Hulk #20
Buy/Bid – Sensational She-Hulk #21

Sensational She-Hulk #20 (1990) – First appearances of Big Al G’houl, Commissioner Gruber, Three-Face, Slimeface, Professor Hugo Oddt, and Dogwoman.
Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back. A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.
Quasar #38 (1992) – It’s not so much that She-Hulk appears in this Quasar series for the first time. Really who cares? For now maybe. But this comic was drawn by none other than Greg Capullo.
Click To Buy/Bid – Sensational She-Hulk #60
Sensational She-Hulk #50 (1993) – The 50th anniversary issue. 48 pager. John Byrne loads the book up with guest appearances from a number of Marvel characters. This issue would be the last Byrne issue as Jennifer looks for a new creative team to take over her comic series. John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.
Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.
Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

Aquaman, seven series number one issues, two of which were limited series. None of the regular series made it past 77 issues. What does this mean exactly? Well it means that Aquaman was never a character taken very seriously. Always on the receiving end of the joke. Nowadays things are a bit different (many thanks to Geoff Johns), although the character still holds the stigma of being a lame duck in many circles, Warner Brothers will be going all in with a solo movie release. Rumor has it that he’ll first appear in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice first, then we’ll see the solo movie a couple of years later. It’s then we’ll see if the world is truly ready for a live action Aquaman movie.
It was writer Geoff Johns that vowed to make Aquaman a cool character. He’s achieved this feat with many naysayers saying it couldn’t be done. Now the transition to film will be the defining moment for the most powerful water character in the entire DC Universe.
Below are some key Aquaman appearances throughout the years. First appearances, number one issues, appearances in other comics, etc. Debuting from 1941, there are plenty of comics to look for here. Plenty of affordable books along the way here too.
Please remember as always here on InvestComics, read the disclaimer. With that said, there will in fact be books that are not on this list. They were probably inadvertently missed. No problem, list your favorite book below or in the comment section in one of our social media outlets. Also remember that the Aquaman movie comes out in 2018, there are no right or wrong answers here.
Superman Emperor Joker #1 (2000) A one shot featuring a ton of guest stars and JLA (Aquaman). Written by Joe Kelly and Jeph Loeb. Spectacular cover by Ed McGuinness.
Green Arrow #16 (2001) First appearance in a Green Arrow comic. Written by Kevin Smith and art by Phil Hester. One of Aquaman’s greatest adversaries appears in this comic; Black Manta. Great Matt Wagner cover.
Aquaman Vol 6 #1(2003) A new direction for Aquaman; “The New Wave”. Written by Rick Veitch, pencils by Yvel Guichet and cover by Alex Maleev. This series lasted 57 issues.

From the blockbuster creative team behind Captain America, Ed Brubaker and Butch Guice send Bucky back into the shadows to take down the remaining ex-Russian sleeper agents and dismantle their diabolical plot.
Teamed with the Black Widow, the former Captain America will have his hands full when he finds out that he trained them all AND that Doctor Doom is involved! With the entire Marvel Universe thinking he’s dead, Bucky will have to tackle this threat head on with limited resources. Get in on all the action this February in Winter Soldier #1!

Looks like JSA has a NEW villain to deal with, and his name is not Loki!
Amazing-Spider-Man # 569First there was Venom, then Carnage and now Spidey will have a new thorn in his side and it’s name is Anti-Venom. Yes we know, not much of a name, but hey we’ve all heard worse. Marvel is not revealing whether or not Anti-V is a villain or a hero. Either way, this comic looks to be one of those must haves.
Skaar # 3What more can be said about Skaar?! This comic is mucho caliente (very hot, for the non speaking Spanish community). Okay as if the hype machine isn’t big enough with this comic. Marvel says it has a shocking second story by the great Butch Guice himself. Buy this comic, buy this series, and buy it now!
Runaways # 1This is the 3rd launch of this series, but this time we have Humberto Ramos taking the penciling duties and man does it look sweet. Bring the artistry of Ramos, a number one issue and Hollywoodtalking about this as a motion picture¦..nuff said.
Kickass # 4Nicolas Cage just jumped on board the Hollywood/Comic Book gravy train once again. Set to start shooting in the fall in Canada, Kickass is going to do just that at the box office, kick ass. Issue #4 introduces us to Hit Girl. A nine year old that will turn this comic upside down. With the introduction here, Cage joining the fray and Matthew Vaughn directing, the Kickass series is good pick up. Did we mention that Vaughn has been tapped to direct some character named Thor!? Cool huh?!
Justice Society of America# 18 Geoff Johns has JSA on top of the reading charts for a reason. The guy knows how to write a good story. If judging a book only by its cover, JSA is in a world of trouble with the introduction of Magog. Not too keen on the name, but we’re not telling Magog that! Looking like a descendant from Asgard, this villain named Magog hopefully will stand on his own.
