Uncanny Inhumans #11 – Well, we’ll say it. We told you so. This comic is sold out across the board and has its aftermarket burners on. Look for some high prices on Ebay for those who did not get it on their pull list at their local comic shop. That’s unless you read the InvestComics Hot Picks #430 article and clicked a buy it now on Ebay. Prices bidding around $8 – $16 already. We told you to pick one up…….

Grayson Annual #3 – We also alerted Harley Quinn collectors that she’ll be appearing in this comic this week. Guess what? It’s sold out!

Spider-Gwen Annual #1 – Setting up some future story lines for Spider-Gwen happens right here. Spider-Gwen fans be on alert.

Captain Marvel #6 – As we said in the Hot Picks article, Marvel Comics seems to be setting up Carol Danvers as the premiere character within their universe. It may all start here. Just a speculative thought.

Deathstroke Annual #2 – A new villain named Balkan joins the fray.

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: New Gods #1 graded 7.0. With lots of talk regarding the New Gods making a possible appearance in the new Justice League movie, this comic is a nice pickup. The first appearances of Orion, Lightray, Metron, Kalibak, Highfather, New Genesis and Apokolips. Also with a Darkseid cameo. Story and cover art from Jack Kirby. A fantastic book for your collection. A buy it now price tag of only $85.

There is a very big hyper-machine running behind a new character getting their own book in a few months. His name is Mosaic. Mosaic #1 is being pushed by Marvel as the next big thing (character) since sliced bread, but InvestComics is not going to give into the hype….just yet. A comic coming this week will be the first appearance of that “hot” Marvel character Mosaic. We are 99.999999% sure that other speculation sites and wannabe speculators will tell you to buy this comic it’s going to be so HOT! Maybe it will be, right out of the gate, but there are so many mitigating factors going into this week’s Uncanny Inhumans #11. Will Mosaic play a key role in the Marvel Universe for years to come? Anyone remember Sentry? Will Mosaic play a key role in another characters life? A brother, a son, a reincarnation? Will Mosaic ‘click’ with the fans long term? See Spider-Gwen or Gwenpool, but not Silk as much. Will the character actually have substance to make him interesting enough for fans to come back and or demand to see him more within the Marvel U? It has taken literally decades for Werewolf By Night #32 (Moon Knight) to earn some respect. Partial thanks to InvestComics for pushing that particular book for the last 12 years. The basic point here is not to go all in by paying premium prices for a first appearance of Mosaic if you have no idea where this characters’ future lies within the Marvel U. The easiest call to make these days is the new female characters Marvel introduces. They seem to jump out and kick major as* in the aftermarket quick. The female counter parts however are a bit more touch and go sometimes. Mosaic is the next Marvel character to be pushed in an aggressive way, to which does not always equate to speculator gold. Sometimes it equates to a huge bust. We’ll have to do a wait and see here for a bit, but for now, Uncanny Inhumans #11 has all eyes on it this week. Buy a copy and make your own judgment as to whether or not YOU want to dig in with Mosaic. Don’t think too long though or you’ll have to wait for a second print, thus missing that possible easy flip. This comic will be completely sold out before new comic book day Wednesday.

Fans of Spider-Gwen may want to keep an eye out on the Spider-Gwen Annual #1 comic this week. Marvel is setting up Spider-Gwen’s near future right here.
We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. We informed readers that the Spider-Man Deadpool series was going to be huge. We told readers to pick up that Spider-Man Deadpool #1 issue, it’s now headed to it’s sixth printing. Check out the all-star issue this week; Spider-Man Deadpool #6.
Last month fanboys got their panties in a bunch because Steve Rogers uttered two very bad words at the end of his debut issue. Lets see if Captain America Steve Rogers #2 brings some clarity or sends the fanboys into more of a tizzy. Maybe Marvel will add fuel to the fire and have the fanboys daring to stop buying Marvel comic books! Been there, done that. Deep breath dudes, breathe.

The Amazing Spider-Man And Silk Spider(Fly) Effect #4 story will have both Spidey and Silk reminiscing about that fateful day in the science fair where they were both bit by the same spider. Ah, good ol’ times! And that Ryan Stegman cover is killer.
It looks as though Marvel is trying to put Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) front and center in their universe. Good deal, we dig it. Captain Marvel #6 will feature Carol in a defining type moment in her hero career. Be there to witness it.

Harley Quinn appearance alert! Harley will make an appearance in Grayson Annual #3.
Deathstroke Annual #2 will introduce a villain named Balkan.
Disclaimer; we’re not crapping on this series, but just stating facts via the social media non-presence and the overall quietness of fans. We warned speculators from the outset. Do not get too vested in the third installment. The colossal failure/delayed Dark Knight III hits its fifth issue (Dark Knight III The Master Race #5). Maybe sales are good for DC with this series, but fans are NOT really talking about the third go-around here. Delays have killed any momentum the series may have had. All that said, a Midtown Comics Greg Capullo variant looks snazzy! And of course you have the Jim Lee variant coming in at $550. Unbelievable to us how JUST a cover, a NEW comic, with the SAME insides/story as ANY of the other 10 variants commands $550. **The fanboy screams** “but it’s a 1 in 300” (or whatever the ratio is), we don’t care. Spend your money by clicking HERE (Bronze Age Comics) instead.

It’s just a question of time before Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s Jupiter’s Legacy really takes off right? So much potential here it’s unreal. Jupiter’s Legacy #1 (vol 2) ramps up things once again and we’re all invited for the ride. And check out the Rob Liefeld variant. Very Deadpool’ish of Rob, we love it!

A lot to choose from regarding the indie market this week. So many, but here are a few to definitely check out!
Action Lab Entertainment books to check out this Wednesday; Zoe Dare vs The Disasteroid #1 and Vampblade #5 (Danger Zone). The Vampblade #5 cover is a hilarious parody of the Rom character. A must see. Fantastic job here by Winston Young.
The awesome Eric Powell writes and draws Hillbilly #1 (Albatross Exploding).
Black Mask follows up their hit book; 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank with the second issue. They also hit fans with Jade Street Protection Services #1. Written by Katy Rex and art by Fabian Lelay.

With the influx of female characters making their way into the comic book medium these days, with lots of thanks to Disney (Marvel) making it so that the female character shows more of a “character side” as they have never before, we wanted to make sure to recognize some of the keys players. We completely understand that female characters have been around since the inception of comic books (no need for a history lesson, stop typing that email or Facebook post), but there is a movement happening in the past few years to the likes we have never really seen in case you haven’t realized it. Disney put a female lead in its new Star Wars movie, now the next Star Wars movie (Rouge One) will ALSO be a female lead. They know what they’re doing and their comics are following the same guidelines. So as is everyone else in the comic book industry. Much like what always happens with InvestComics and everyone following us or emulating. We’re flattered though. Like Disney.

Listed below are some new comics, some old comics and characters WE like. This will be the first installment of more Female character checklist to come. Of course we will in FACT not have some of your favorites here, but all in due time. Relax. Just breathe. Deep breaths. No emails, no Facebook post, Tweets, Instagram notes. Breathe……breathe.

Ted McKeever, a main staple within the comic industry has been around since 1987. A tremendous talent with many books under his belt as well as industry stories apparently. This Wednesday fans get treated to a self created/character title called Pencil Head #1 from Image Comics. The comic is a semi-biography based on the comic book industry from Ted’s view. Some awesome stories to read in here we’re sure! InvestComics has been around for 10+ years and boy do we have some stories to tell too. Maybe someday……someday.
Symmetry #1 (Image Comics) received a nice welcome, now the hard part. Keeping the fanbase around after Symmetry #2. Check out the second issue this week. We have faith you’ll be looking for issue #3.

Who knows if Marvel will ever really get to that Captain Marvel movie in 2018. With a flop or two, the comic book movie landscape will change dramatically. You do know this will eventually happen right? It’s inevitable, there will be failure to some degree someday. If Disney hits a bad spot and then another bad spot, the game will change in a big way. Even after the first bump in the road, Disney will pump the breaks big time. Do not be naive to the fact that comic book movies will be around forever. Don’t get us wrong here either, comic book movies will be around for a while, for years to come, but to what capacity is the question.
IF Marvel (Disney) ever makes it far enough to get Carol Danvers going, it’ll be the first major female comic character to ever have a huge budget behind them to succeed. Don’t bring up Catwoman or Supergirl or Elektra, you know what we are saying. What Marvel is doing as far as their continuing and connecting movies is cinematic history. Never been done before. A Captain Marvel movie will be made to succeed (obviously). Succeed big while grabbing the young girls and teenage girls as new Marvel’ette’s. Disney knows what they are doing, they really really hope to get to 2018 with no bumps in the road. There is an untapped comic book audience that they will market. They’ll kill. Like they always do.
Now that we have your attention, let’s get back to Carol Danvers comic books. Carol Danvers first appearance was in Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) as Ms. Marvel. Her first appearance as Captain Marvel was in Captain Marvel #1 (2012). Then you have the first Carol Danvers in Avenging Spider-Man #9 (2012) as Carol Danvers, but she’s on the cover as Captain Marvel? It’s a bit confusing the way some of these grading companies do things, but we just follow along like everyone else. Anyway, these comics should find a home in your collection sooner rather than later. If we get to 2018 with no issues and Disney is full steam ahead, these comics will be sitting in a different place monetarily. Major upside potential here. Major.
Oh yes almost forgot, there’s Captain Marvel #1 coming out this Wednesday. Check that out too.

We really wish the Deadpool movie would come out already. Every week fans have to endure another onslaught of Deadpool variants or the character appearing on random covers. We get it Marvel, we really do. Stop already. So with that said, Deadpool #6 will introduce fans to Deadpool 2099. And a big surprise here, ready for it…? Ready?…..the new character is a female. You’re surprised right?! Right?! No you’re not. Neither are we!
And as long as we’re on topic with the female character, how about checking out the New Avengers #5 this week? The introduction of a “new” Avengers team will make their first appearance. By “new”, we mean new characters; Iron Mariner, King Hulk, Marvel Woman, Collapsar, and Captain America. By the looks of it, Captain America, Iron Mariner, and Marvel Woman (obviously) are all female. Interesting no? We dig it. They look awesome.

There’s a very annoying unnecessary number one issue coming out on Wednesday. Silver Surfer #1. Written by Dan Slott and art by Mike Allred. What’s so irritating about this one may ask. The same writer and artist that started Silver Surfer #1 from 2014 went 15 issues and ended their run last month(?) and will be starting anew with a number one issue. Why not just continue with issue #16 THIS month? It makes no sense really. None. The only obvious reason would be to sell more comics by slapping the number ONE on the cover. It’s ridiculous really. We’re quite sure Dan and Mike will provide tremendous entertainment, but this starting from a new number one stuff is flat out silly. Yep, we said it.

Mr. Bloom seems to be causing all kinds of problems for Batman in Batman #48. Not too sure if this story is in fact leading to the final Synder/Capullo Batman book (number 50). Probably so, but an end of an era is coming for the best creative team on Batman in years.

Dynamite Entertainment makes the Hot Picks article this week with Devolution #1. Rick Remender writes and a Jae Lee cover. That’s enough in itself to check this out.
Pathfinder Hollow Mountain #3 paying homage to the iconic cover from 1958’s Adventure Comics #247 by Stan Kaye, Ira Schapp, and Curt Swan. This comic is the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
451 Media Group continues to sell out every week. Sunflower #1 and #2 sold out, look for Sunflower #3 (with lots of sunflowers on the cover) to possibly continue the trend.

The Inhumans movie will be arriving in 2019. By then, Infinity War part II will have hit the screen. A question one may ask here is, will the Inhumans pick up where the Avengers movies cease? Short answer, probably yes. Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man (additions Wasp, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision) will fill in the new Avengers team roster after the current team is dismantled in Infinity War I & II. The Avengers can and will continue with an all new lineup one day, but until then, the Inhumans will probably take the mantle for a while. It makes total sense here. Some of the Avenger stars have become way too big for their roles, commanding more money and are also getting “older” as the series progresses. Remember when the phase just started? Chris Evans? Chris Hemsworth? Scarlett Johansson? Robert Downey Jr.? And the list goes on. No one really knew if any of this would work. It did. Now that “it did” and the success has and will run its course, ending with Infinity War II (2019), the only logical monetary thing to do is…..start over. Enter the Inhumans.

Since we all know that Marvel does not own the rights to the X-Men, this will be their workaround. Their version of the X-Men and come hell or high water, Marvel will make this work. Just to drive home a point that they don’t need the X-Men, they have the Inhumans.

It’s all going to start the same way it all began back in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. Get that name everyone recognizes and get it to work. So with the Inhumans, the character that needs to be front/center and to work is Black Bolt. He’s the leader of the Inhumans. The King of Attilan. Who will be chosen to lead the way to another successful 11 year (more or less) run? Black Bolt will be the next “Tony Stark” because of the lead in to introduce the next phase. The character (the team) will play an intricate role in setting the table for everyone to follow.

The Avengers Infinity War parts I & II will probably (most likely) end many of the Marvel on screen careers. Our favorite characters will be gone. Marvel will set a new precedence in offing characters at a ridiculous clip. The reality is, Robert, Chris, Scarlett, Jeremy and all the others who have been around these movies for years are going to move on eventually to other roles other than superheroes. What better way to add finality to an unprecedented run than sending our heroes to sacrifice themselves against the greatest threat the planet and universe has ever seen, Thanos. Do not kid yourselves, there will be many deaths in the Infinity War parts I & II. In actuality, there has to be. The stadium is over capacity. There has to be closure so that the new blood can come in. That new blood being the Inhumans.

So in 2019, it’s all going to come to a head. 11 years to arrive to the greatest battle of all time. The greatest battle in cinema since dad and son went at it with their Lightsabers. It’s going to take every character fans have seen throughout the years and mash them into two movies. The Avengers cannot and will not defeat Thanos alone. Not happening. The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Winter Solider, Loki, Spider-Man, Warlock and so many more will probably appear in both films. Most will not make it to the next phase.

The comic book speculator has four years to compile their Inhumans comics library. What InvestComics has given the speculative community throughout our ten years is the ability to buy low and….sell high. This checklist is just that. Some of these books are movers right now, but their value in four years time will be immensely different. Tremendous upside here. Yes the first appearance of the Inhumans might be a bit pricey now, but it will not be anywhere near as close to the price it is now when 2019 rolls around. Think big. Think X-Men #1 (1963) or Giant Size X-Men #1 (1975). Marvel Studios’ version of the X-Men will become the next big franchise, do not miss this boat. Inhumans will be huge.

Most of these books if not all of them are extremely affordable…..for now. As time beckons, as news breaks, as announcements are made, as villains are cast, as the Infinity War movie starts coming into light, the Inhumans will become more and more of a household name and you will be very late to the party if you put things on hold until then. Be sure to thank InvestComics for throwing this early party now when the time comes.

As always, there will be missed books within the checklist below. We’re Inhuman, Ha! See what we did there?! There are many books listed. All kinds of first appearances, key issues and cool books in general. We simply do not know what the Inhumans movie will bring, so we tried to cover as many bases as possible for the speculator. If you have a comic you’d like to add, please help the fellow speculators in listing it below in the comment section. AND PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER on this site.

Fantastic Four #36 (1965) The first appearance of Medusa. Black Bolt’s main squeeze. Brought to us by the creative team of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Fantastic Four #44 (1965) The first appearance of Black Bolt’s bodyguard (cousin) Gorgon.

Fantastic Four #45 (1965) First appearance of Black Bolt (cameo) and the first appearance of the Inhumans team. Lee, Kirby and Sinnott. A must own comic if you are truly in the speculative market. This comic also serves as the first appearances of Triton and Karnak. Must own.

Fantastic Four #46 (1966) First full appearance of Black Bolt. His first cover as well. Same creative team as the previous issues and the same speculative rules apply as well. A must own here.

Fantastic Four #47 (1966) Every hero needs an adversary. A sibling at that. In this issue, Black Bolt’s insane brother makes his debut; Maximus. This comic also has the first mention and appearance of the land called Attilan.

Thor #148 (1968) The first of three consecutive, most desirable comics to own (besides the first appearance) if one is collecting key Black Bolt books. The origin of Black Bolt starts here (in a backup story). Still very affordable right now, but this will in fact change. This is also the first appearance of the Wrecker. An absolute non-factor because this comic will triple in value in a few years because of the Black Bolt origin, not because of the Wrecker. Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.

Thor #149 (1968) The continuation of Black Bolt’s origin. Must own.

Thor #150 (1968) The Inhumans origin. Must own.

Marvel Super-Heroes #15 (1968) First solo Medusa story. Black Bolt appearance.

Incredible Hulk Special #1 (1968) Hulk vs the Inhumans. Classic Steranko cover.

Silver Surfer #18 (1970) Black Bolt and the Inhumans appear in the Silver Surfer series.

Amazing Adventures #9 (1971) The first solo Black Bolt/Inhumans comic.

Avengers #95 (1972) Another important comic because of the Marvel cinematic universe. It’s going to take more than just the Avengers team to defeat Thanos in Infinity Wars parts I and II. Will the Inhumans join in the fight along side the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy? Maybe. Maybe not, but this comic here is the first Avengers book the Inhumans appear in. Neal Adams art, Roy Thomas writes and John Buscema provides the cover. It’s also an origin story on Black Bolt and Maximus. Another must buy here.

Iron Man #57 (1973) Black Bolt/Inhumans first appear in an Iron Man book.

Marvel Team-Up #11 (1973) First appearance with Spider-Man. John Romita Sr. cover.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 8/5/15

Before moving on here. A reminder as we have mentioned so many times in the past here on InvestComics. Just because a comic is sold out does not mean there will be monetary gains to be had. At the end of the day, the sold out comic must bring something tangible to the table. Besides the obvious first appearance factor for a speculative book, It must bring a buzz/interest for fans to come back to buy more. Publishers have the responsibility to provide an on time comic to sustain that interest and buzz. If the comic comes out on time and the buzz sustains and the interest is there, it’s a mix for possible success within the aftermarket. A sold out comic does not mean aftermarket success. Many factors go into why a comic does well for speculators after its release. Know the guidelines, follow InvestComics to give you the scoops all the time on how to watch for these things. Another reason is the release count. This plays a huge part in the process as well. Too many copies make for a watered down product, thus affecting your bottom line. See, many factors. Stick around here as you do, you’ll learn the real factors as to why things do what they do in the market. We are the number one comic book speculation website for a reason. And thanks to all of you of course. So let’s move along shall we?

One of the most prolific comic creators of our time is Frank Miller. He single-handedly made two comic characters into iconic status. Several of his creator owned projects have either seen film/television time or will in the future. Frank Miller’s art is extremely distinctive as well. Everything from the overbearing board shoulders of Batman to the loneliness feel of Daredevil’s pain, to the violence of 300. His writing replicates his artistry. Usually very bold and forthcoming. A distinctive comic creator in every facet. A true legend and Icon in the industry.

Here are just a few of his key books in his vast career. It took a very long time to compile this list and we hope you enjoy every bit of it as we did putting it together.

Daredevil #181 (1982) The death of Elektra. Also the first Punisher appearance in the series. Miller creates another adversary for the ages here for the Daredevil character, but it’s a vigilante (hero) this time. As with the Power Man/Iron Fist team up, will Netflix heat things up here with the Punisher coming on board? Again maybe, but be forewarned, this comic is way over-printed and very easy to find.

House_of_Mystery_179_InvestComics Chamber_of_Darkness_Vol_1_7 The_Spectre_9_InvestComics

Bernie Wrightson’s first professional published work was in DC’s House of Mystery #179 (1969). He did a backup story with another comic legend (early work), writer Marv Wolfman. This comic also featured some early work from Sergio Aragones and Neal Adams (Cover Artist).

His first non horror related comic came immediately following his first work. Although not too far from the realm of horror, he penciled a Spectre story in The Spectre #9 (1969)

Bernie continued to do interior backup stories for DC and a few covers for some magazines/indies, but it wasn’t until late 1970 when Marvel Comics stepped in and let Bernie do his first comic cover; Chamber of Darkness #7. His second Marvel cover would turn out to be Creatures on the Loose #10 (1971). Why mention his second cover you may ask? He collaborated on the cover with some guy named Jack ‘King’ Kirby. It also happens to be the first appearance of King Kull.

Green Lantern #82 (1971) turned out to be the first major superhero work. He only did the inks on one page here though. Inks over Neal Adams.

Here’s an interesting thing. Bernie did a cover for House of Mystery #195 (1971) and the name of the story was “Bat Out of Hell”. Look at that cover……..2 months later he’s one of the writers in Batman #237 (1971), which also is the first appearance of the Reaper. Then a few months after that he collaborates with Neal Adams on the Batman #241 (1972) cover. It looks very similar to the House of Mystery cover Bernie did just a few months prior. Was that House of Mystery cover a Batman break-in for Bernie? Possible right? Well just a few months after the Neal Adams Batman collaboration cover came Bernie’s first solo Batman cover happened on Detective Comics #425 (1972).

Dialing back for a second here, House of Secrets #92 (1971) is a prize from the Bernie collection as far as first appearances are concerned. This comic features the first appearance of Swamp Thing. Wrightson is to Swamp Thing as McFarlane is to Spidey, Kirby is to Captain America, Frank Miller is to Daredevil….you get the idea right? Wrightson does the cover and interior here. Fantastic comic to own.

Already mentioned above were some of Wrightson’s first work with Marvel, but about a superhero for Marvel? He’s already done Batman for DC, what about Marvel? After some stints with Kull and Conan, he did his first sort of superhero character in Astonishing Tales #31 (1975). His cover art was a collaboration with Ed J. Harrington and it depicted Deathlok shooting in a blaze of glory. Okay so Deathlok doesn’t do it for you? How about Incredible Hulk #56 (1976)……from France. Yes that’s right. He did a Hulk solo cover that appeared only in France. Good luck getting that comic in NM condition….ever. So what about a SOLO Marvel cover in the States as a first for Bernie in regards to a major Marvel Superhero? Captain Marvel #43 (1976)? Nope, another collaboration. How about Incredible Hulk #197 (1976)? We have a winner! ….And who is that on the cover? Why yes that’s Man-Thing (coincidence? Um, no). What a beauty of a cover too.

Speaking of beauty. Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein (pictured above). Wow. Just wow. Marvel at the beauty of this artistry. Unbelievable, magnificent, poetry, classic….there simply are not enough words here.

Batman_241_InvestComics House_of_Mystery_195_InvestComics

Bernie’s first Superman came in Superman #272 (1974) as a pinup. Still counts as a first. He also contributed a pinup in a Superman pinup portfolio in 1984.

Here’s a question to ponder. Since the mention of Batman and Superman, what about Marvel’s flagship character? Spidey! Yes Bernie Wrightson penciled, inked and colored his first Spider-Man story back in 1986. Marvel had these really cool things called graphic novels back in the 80’s that featured original stories in oversized fashion and on super shiny paper. Oh it was so cool, good times, good times….. anyways, “Amazing Spider-Man in Hooky” was the name of Marvel’s graphic novel #22 (1986) that Bernie had complete creative control (except writing duties). This was Bernie’s first and only Spider-Man story he’s ever done. In Marvel graphic novel #29 (1987), Wrightson collaborated with legend Jim Starlin; The Incredible Hulk and the Thing. It wasn’t until the following year that Jim Starlin And Bernie Wrightson would collaborate to make one of the top 10 Batman stories of all time.

Batman: The Cult was and still is a bad as* Batman story. A four issue series that still brings it to this day. Still sort after and if you don’t own it, you should.

Rolling back here, here are two freebie’s for InvestComics fans. Back in 1983, Doctor Strange/Silver Dagger Special Edition #1, cover by Wrightson.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/17/14

As stated in previous weeks, there are big changes coming to the InvestComics platform. Changes that will benefit the collector in all ways possible. It’s been a 9 year run (going on 10 years) that InvestComics has giving the speculator/reader a platform like no other web site on the internet. There are a lot of sites that have popped up over the past few years/months/weeks that have tried to duplicate the InvestComics lure, but fall short because we have the library of information provided for so many years. If you don’t take yourself so seriously, enjoy the modern/bronze age speculative/reading aspect of collecting, then you will enjoy what is to come. Stay tuned.

Coming up on the holiday season here. A very busy life calls for a less busy InvestComics Hot Picks! This doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of comics to read and speculate on for your own liking. Check out what made our list though…..

All New Captain America #2 will continue to focus on the character Nomad. It’s just a matter of time before we see this dude in a movie right? Probably not, maybe, who knows?! Anyhow, here is a small checklist (you know InvestComics has LOTS of checklist too!) on the character Nomad.

Nomad_First_Appearances_InvestComics

Nomad’s first appearance was in Captain America #180 (1974) as Steve Rogers. Captain America #261 (1981); Edward Ferbel, Captain America #1 (2013); Ian Rogers. And Jack Monroe; Captain America #282 (1983). So the question to ask yourself now is, should I buy these? Well, all of these first appearances are very affordable. You won’t lose any money and Captain_Marvel_10_InvestComics Ms_Marvel_1_InvestComicsyou’ll get great stories to boot. The answer to your question is simple. Yes.

Another Captain to look out for this week is Captain Marvel. Ever since the Captain Marvel movie announcement, Captain Marvel has been extremely hot in the aftermaket. Captain Marvel #10 will have a very cool cover that pays homage to the original appearance of Carol Danvers from Ms. Marvel #1 (1977). Marvel is celebrating the 100th solo issue with the tribute cover. The best part of this “very cool cover” is that it’s not a variant. Regular cover here!

And speaking of variants and homage covers, how about Spider-Woman #2? The obvious money grab from Marvel is stated right on the cover! Stay classy Marvel. Anyway, this “nothing to do with Spider-Woman” cover borrows from the famous Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974) (Punisher’s first appearance of course). This variant will be cover price on Wednesday. Will it stay that way for long? Maybe not given the fact Rocket Raccoon is so popular these days and Amazing_Spider-Man_129_InvestComics Spider_woman_Rocket_raccoon_investcomicsit’s a great tribute cover.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #8 promises a mind blowing event. Readers will find out what is behind the Miles Morales legacy and who Miles’ daddy is.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #37 will reveal the secret history of Roy Harper and Oliver Queen, so fans of those two will want to check this out.

The speculative market does not remain all that quiet with new releases from Image Comics. The red hot Wytches will continue its torrid pace with Wytches #3 and Rumble #1 looks to be a nice pick-up. Ray Fawkes’ Intersect #2 will see some awesome sales. All of these Image titles will be sold out very soon. Titan Comics will have three number comics coming out on new comic book day. Check out 13 Coins #3, Mono #1 and Captain Stone #1. All of Titan’s new number ones are sold out or just about there. If you want em’, grab em’.

Titan_Comics_investcomicsSee you soon. Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/12/14

Wytches_InvestComics Spider-Verse_InvestComicsBe sure to stop by the Capital Grading Services website for new updates. Like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. An announcement on the first exclusive signing coming soon!

Not each week does the opportunity present itself that a surefire hit will surface, that one book that will be an instant aftermarket success. This week however, there is that book (and another, but more on that in a bit); Wytches (2014 Image) #2. The success on issue number one was so great, that it will indeed spill over to the second issue, I guarantee it. Get your copy quick because it’s already sold out at the distributor. The reason for the success here? Put Scott Sndyer on writing duties, put Jock on art and cover duties, which equates to a fantastic story. Add to the mix of a possible movie deal and you have instant speculation gold.

A book that may take some speculators by surprise this week is Kitchen (2014 DC/Vertigo) #1. A reverting story line coupled along with the great DC imprint of Vertigo makes for a possible sleeper. The $10 variant is already sold out, so pay attention to this one.

New_Mutants_Annual_1_InvestComics Captain_Marvel_InvestComicsIt’s not too often that an IDW comic cracks the InvestComics Hot Picks list. The aftermarket never acts too kindly to certain independent publishers, this being one of them. That said, not to take anything away from them! They put out an outstanding publishing line. This week IDW gives us a rarer original content comic instead of a licensed one. Check out Bigger Bang (2014 IDW) #1 this week. Looks like a winner.

Drifter (2014 Image) #1 is sold out at the distributor, but is still available at some of the on line outlets. If you are afraid you may miss it at your local shop, you should probably buy it on line before that becomes a non-option for you.

What more can be said on here that hasn’t already been said about Spider-Verse? I have been alerting you for months about how important this saga is. Gave you a heads up on the Gwen Stacy issue too a few weeks ago. It begs repeating though just in case you haven’t been listening. This Spider-Verse story line is one of the most important speculation Spider-Man series to come out in quite some time. This isn’t “One More Day”, or “The Clone Saga”, this is a story line that will introduce and re-introduce every single Spider-Man costume, person, metal armor, and even an animal BACK into the fold of the Marvel universe all at one time. So to reiterate for the millionth time here, what does this Django_Zorro_InvestComics Rocket_Raccoon_Variant_InvestComicsmean for the speculator? It means that there are going to be an abundance of breakout characters here. Old and more importantly NEW! If you are a reader or a speculator, you need to get on every single Spider-Verse book. Anything Marvel throws at us, get it. There will be introductions (and reentries) in books that you were not expecting and BAM the book will blow up because the character(s) suddenly are at the forefront of a new book, or appear in another thus creating a mad frenzy to find that first appearance. I said it from the beginning, the Spider-Verse story line is a huge marketing monster with tremendous potential to explore and introduce new Spider characters. Do not sleep on this specs. So with all of this stated, Spider-Verse (2014) #1 will do all of the above mentioned. The team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos begin the awesome series. There are two separate stories introducing two new spider characters. Yes this book, better yet, this series is one to get without a doubt!

And speaking of reintroduction’s, check out Silver Surfer (2014 5th Series) #7. There will be characters reintroduced into the Marvel lure that promise’s to blow readers away. Be sure to take a look and make an executive decision on whether or not to pursue this issue and the first appearances of our old guest. Oh and the best best part of this comic.Want to know? Dan Slott is the writer! So pulling double duty here with the reintro’s.

Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #7 will focus on the question; who is Katie Bishop? Maybe she is going to play a major role in the Ultimate Spider-Man universe. Maybe not. Either way, her first appearance was in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #12 (2012).

All New Captain America (2014 Marvel) #1 will be accompanied with 9 variant covers at last count. This gimmick will be short lived because most likely Steve Rogers will be back in given time and Sam Wilson will be out. A “new” CaptaiJon_Sable_Freelance_1_InvestComics Superior_Iron_Man_1_InvestComicsn America is not “new” anymore and it’s grown a bit, become tiresome and non-eventful. It may sell out, but don’t look for record breaking aftermarket numbers here. The $200 variant is the only outstanding book sold out book at the moment. More of the same with the other new book the “new” Captain America will appear in this week; Captain America and the Mighty Avengers (2014) #1. There is a very nice $3.99 Rocket Raccoon variant to check out though.

Guardians 3000 (2014) #2 will introduce a new Herald to Galactus.

A new Iron Man book will turn some heads. Check out Superior Iron Man (2014) #1.

Captain Marvel has been in the news lately. Have you seen that? Something about a movie. Anyway, in this weeks Captain Marvel (2014 8th Series) #9 all eyes will be on Lila Cheney. She guest stars. Lila first appeared in New Mutants Annual #1.

Hero_2014_InvestComicsThe new Hero Initiative comic Hero Comics (2011 IDW) #2014 will feature a new Maxx story from Sam Keith. Mike Grell will provide a new story on his character from 31 years ago, Jon Sable, Freelance. A hot book for a little bit back then. Check out Jon’s first appearance in Jon Sable, Freelance #1 (1983) from First Comics. And incidentally, First Comics are making a comeback with their new release Badger comic coming soon. They were great back in the 80’s. I’m sure they will put out some great reading material this time around as well.

An odd pairing from Dynamite Entertainment this week. Django Zorro (2014 Dynamite) #1. Yes that’s right Django and Zorro?! Sounds like fun! Here’s the most awesome part of this comic release. It’s written by Quentin Tarantino! Get a CBCS witness signature on this comic, score a 9.8 and you have yourself a nice book. We’re on the saddle with this comic. The variants are fantastic too. The favorite is posted here, Nice.

A couple of other number one comics to take a peak at this week; Deep State (2014 Boom) #1 and Resurrectionists (2014 Dark Horse) #1.

Don’t forget to check out the updates on the Capital Grading Services website (www.capitalgradingservices.com).

See you soon. Invest wisely.

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.

Thanks Terry and welcome aboard!

Let’s dive right into the InvestComics Hot Picks this week, shall we?

InvestComics HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=255]

Marvel Studios recently announced that they will focus their attention on getting a female superhero from their massive library to the big screen. This may be one daunting task considering most of the most recognizable female superheroes come from the DC side. I.e. Wonder Woman, Powergirl, Batgirl, Catwoman and Supergirl. Not saying it cannot be done, what I am saying though is that DC has a stronger lead in this department. That said, who will we get from Marvel onto the big screen? Elektra again? How about a female lead with a partner, say Cloak & Dagger? (More on them in a bit). How about a bad girl in Typhoid Mary? While the list is endless, there really is no disputing that Marvel does have the weaker choices in this department. One possible standout can be a character that will be making her mark in the Marvel Universe in ways she never has; Carol Danvers a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. This week in Avengers Enemy Within (2013) #1, Marvel hopes to establish Captain Marvel within the Marvel U as a mainstay. Not that she was really going anywhere, just a reinstatement as to how important they want her to be. Is this a sign of who will hit that movie theater first as the first big budget female character? Possibly. Maybe we’ll she will pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy? Who knows? So in order to get a jump on things here, collectors should be scouring the back issue bins and the internet to get a leg up here on Carol’s first appearance in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (1968). Here’s a wonderful tip that collectors should be aware of. There are only 58 graded copies in all of the land. That’s right, 58. The top grade received is a 9.8 and only ONE sits there. How about a 9.6 you may ask, how about only FOUR sitting there? Then the 9.4’s with eleven in that spot. There is some tremendous potential here folks. Find a nice near mint copy and get them graded now! How about Carol as Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1 (1977)? Well there are 299 of these copies graded and seems a bit top heavy. 23 are graded at a 9.8 (not too bad), while there are 86 at a 9.6 (not so good). Both comics are fantastic comics to have in your collection, but the Marvel Super-Heroes #13 comic should be the main target.

Ultimate Spider-Man (2011 3rd Series) #23 will bring the all new Cloak & Dagger. If you were a comic fan in the 80’s, then you know just how hot this duo was at one time. Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (1982) was a well sought after book that commanded some nice change in the aftermarket. These days however, things have slowed down a lot for Marvel’s dynamic duo. The CGC market shows a total of 273 graded copies, 59 of which sit at the top with a 9.8. Just like Ms. Marvel #1, a lot of copies sit on the top tier. Still a great book to own, get it.

IDW’s successful relaunching of Star Wars will bring many other restarts to the mix. Dynamite Entertainment will bring Battlestar Galactica (2013 Dynamite) #1 this Wednesday with hopes to follow in Star Wars’ success. Marvel was the original publisher of BG #1 way back in 1979 with its ‘Still only 35 cent’ logo embedded on cover.

Batgirl gets tangled up with the Ventriloquist in Batgirl (2011 4th Series) #20. The Ventriloquist first appeared in Detective Comics #583 (1988).

Age of Ultron (2013 Marvel) #8 promises more changes to reverberate throughout the Marvel universe for years and years to come.

The Comic Book Creator (2013) #1 (magazine) will spotlight various interviews and happenings throughout the comic industry. This magazine will probably have a tough time getting off the ground for a several reasons. This isn’t a knock on the publisher at all, just pointing out what a tough road lies ahead here. One, most of the comic book lure will read their interviews or find news via the internet. Two, the $8.95 price tag will scare a lot of people away. Three, any news or insight from the magazine will be predated by the constant updating from various websites. Although a nice way to read an interview (by actually picking up a magazine/paper) and reading it, the $8.95 price tag may hurt sales here.

Regular Show (2013 Kaboom) #1 will sell out fast, buy, buy, buy the variants and sell, sell, sell!

The 80’s are calling again. Mr. John Byrne comes to IDW with Doomsday.1 (2013 IDW) #1. Other number one issues to check out this week are Fall of the House of Usher (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Dream Merchant (2013 Image) #1, and Dream Thief (2013 Dark Horse) #1.

That’s it for this week. Be sure to sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter on the front page of the website or below. You’ll become cooler instantly. True story.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 12-19-12.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=207] There are certainties within the comic book collecting genre. If you do not know all of them, then here is one that you should know and if you don’t, well then you need to find another hobby. One valuable certainty is any comic book that contains the words “Jack Kirby” and “First appearance” in the same sentence. Now with that, he has been a part of a couple of clunkers, but it doesn’t matter. He’s a legend and legends that create from their mind always have the potential of something great. Yes Jack has created Kobra, Kamandi, Destroyer Duck, Machine Man and Devil Dinosaur to name a few. On the flip side, character like Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Silver Surfer have all been synonymously connected to Jack. So what’s with the clunkers you ask? Find a copy, a high grade copy and send it in to get graded. A 9.8 would command a lot more than what you paid for that comic ungraded. Besides, as said earlier it’s a first appearance created by a legend. It needs to be in your collection. Why the Jack Kirby talk at the start of this week’s article you ask? Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #15 will bring aboard Orion and the New Gods. The legend Jack Kirby created Orion and the New Gods in 1971’s New Gods #1. This comic does not fall under the clunker category, but does fall in-between the high status and clunker status. This is not by any means to understate or discount the importance of any of these characters, but in many ways one can calculate the importance of a character within their respective universes simply by the supply/ demand it receives. Again, thought process here only applies on the collection side of things. If one feels that OMAC plays a big part of their universe then by all means that’s great! But as far as the collector’s side of things, that’s a bit different. On EBay right now, a 9.6 graded New Gods #1 can be yours for only $445. That’s a nice chunk of change, but incomparable to the Doctor Doom or Magneto creations. That said, a New Gods #1 graded issue is a fantastic buy on any level because it’s done by one of the most iconic figures within the comic book industry ever, period.

Switching gears completely here with the arrival of Avengers Arena (2012) #2 this week we get the promise of more death! Marvel really figured a fantastic thing out here folks. With all of the nonsense going on over the last few years of killing off characters and having it essentially mean nothing these days because it’s done so frequently, Marvel has created a comic that offs characters (granted most are third rate) at a nice pace every issue. Yes it’s Marvel’s version of the Hunger Games, but who cares where the idea originated from? Characters are fighting to the death in every issue and we all have a front seat. Let’s find the birth of these characters before they find their possible early demise. And also remember, you may be getting the first appearance of the winner as well! So we have the Deathlocket (who first appeared in the Avengers Arena #1 issue) pinned against two opponents; Hazmat, who’s first appearance came in Avengers Academy #1 (2010) and Cammi; her first appearance was in Drax the Destroyer #1 (2005). InvestComics is with team Cammi. Go Cammi!

Marvel once again turns back the clock and grabs the U-Foes? Yes in Venom (2011 Marvel) #28 this week the U-Foes make their appearance. The first time they checked in was way back in 1980’s Incredible Hulk #254. Cheap book to own if you’re interested.

Marvel goes back into their vault once again this week to find Monica Rambeau roaming the pages of Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #8. Who is Monica you might ask? Monica came onto the scene as the “All New-All Different” Captain Marvel back in Amazing Spider-man Annual #16 (1982). The biggest difference in Monica as Captain Marvel turned out that she was African American. Ridiculous right? But didn’t we somehow go through the same absurdity recently with, this time a MAJOR FLAGSHIP character in the Marvel universe?

DC Comics offer up an all new “something” at the end of Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #15 and also offer up an interesting titled number one issue with JSA Liberty Files The Whistling Skull (2012) #1. Both worth a look to see what’s what.

And while on topic of number one issues, check out Executive Assistant Iris (2012 Volume 3) #1 and Number 13 (2012 Dark Horse) #1 this week.

Just basically having fun here folks, nothing serious. And oh yes, of course it was made with the fanboy in mindJ. So check out the video below to see some hot cosplay girls having fun with the slogan I presented to them. “I Love New York….Comic Con!” There are more video’s coming, so hang on!

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=185]

Remember He-Man? If you do, then you’re within the same age range that I am and enjoyed countless hours within your lifetime saying “I Have the Power!” If you don’t, well you’ll get to know him. Recently the push for He-Man has begun and this week will bring the origin comic of He-Man’s arch nemesis named Skeletor in Masters of the Universe the Origin of Skeletor (2012 DC) #1. If you remember the cartoon, you’ll recall that Skeletor was a bad ass and it was more like a Darth Vader feeling with the character. Every kid wanted to be him at times, then you realize, well this guy is always losing…..so you went back to being He-Man. He-Man first appeared (along with Skeletor) within the comic book realm back in 1982’s DC Comics Presents #47. However, there is a FREE comic book that Mattel put out that predates the mainstream appearance. That comic came out in 1981. Then you have some predate Mickey Mouse (yes THAT Mickey Mouse) comics that claim to have the first appearance of Skeletor before 1981. Granted, probably not the Skeletor that He-Man has issues with, but worth a mention.

Sticking with issues…..Superman will be having issues with Kryptonite Man in Action Comics (2011) Annual #1. Before this villain was a man he was a kid in Superboy #83 (1960). So this issue would be Kryptonite Man’s birth place.

Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #6 brings the original Captain Marvel into the mix. This floundering series needs help and will bringing the original character help it? Who knows, but one does understand that once the Marvel Cosmic Universe gets going in the theaters that Marvel’s Cosmic Superman will be part of it (hopefully). InvestComics did call the Guardians of The Galaxy movie many many years ago as well as the structuring of the Cosmic Universe on the big screen. See you know things here way before they happen! Cool! So with that, expect to see in the not so distant future Marvel show DC (Warner Brothers) a lesson on how THEY perceive a flying superhero with a cape. Should be interesting………and also, the first Captain Marvel is in Marvel Super-Heroes #12 (1967).

A + X (2012 Marvel Now) #1 has a Hulk story from one of the premiere Hulk artist to come along in some time. Dale Keown. Dale’s vision of the Hulk is clearly distinguishable from any other great Hulk artist. Check out his first work on the Hulk back in 1990 in the Incredible Hulk #367. This issue was written by Peter David with cover art from Walt Simonson. This comic is a keeper.

There is obviously no disputing that Joe Kubert was one of the greatest comic book artists to ever grace the medium. This week DC releases Joe Kubert Presents (2012 DC) #1 and within the pages it will display just why this man was a legend. One of Joe Kubert’s first professional works came in Catman Comics #8, a true collector’s item and a true American Icon.

Bedlam (2012 Image) #1 is the lone number one issue this week that should be checked out!

Check it too…..scroll through the Hot Covers of the week below!

See you next week, invest wisely.

Welcome to InvestComics Hot Picks 5-23-12.

Within the new releases this week at your local comic shop. You may see the latest magazine issue of Fangoria magazine #314. That magazine was part of my childhood and I’m very proud to say that I was interviewed within the magazine for the latest release of Blue Waters Vincent Price House of Horrors #1 that I wrote. So pick it up this week along with the rest of your stack of comics. Thanks for your support!

Over at the InvestComics You tube channel, 2 new videos to check out. The latest FFFIC episode #45 still has the super cool contest going on. Win a FREE one year subscription to Marvel Super-Heroes magazine from Disney magazines! Eight issues in all! Thanks Disney! All you have to do is watch the video right HERE and tweet the tweet! The second video is courtesy of everyone’s favorite new reviewer on the InvestComics You tube channel; Amber of Booze, Cooze and reviews. Regarding the show, Amber recently received high praise from the one and only Gail Simone!! How cool is that?! See what all the fuss is about right HERE, but huge WARNING here, EXPLICT LANGUGE. If easily offended, move along.  And thanks Gail!!

On to the Hot Picks this week!

Just as Marvel announced this week the All New Captain Marvel #1 will be a female character we get the resurgence in Secret Avengers #27 of the “male” version of Captain Marvel. Hmmm….okay. Anyway the bang for your buck will most definitely be the original male counterpart here. With the big tease at the end of the Avengers movie (credits), there is no reason to think that Marvel will not explore their Cosmic Universe as already spoken about right here on InvestComics Hot Picks last week. That said, The Marvel Super-Heroes Featuring Captain Marvel #12 (1967) is still a work in progress, soon to be hot commodity that will see upticks over the next couple years. We highly doubt that if Marvel will begin their approach into the Cosmo’s that Captain Marvel will land there as a female character. Not that there is anything wrong with having a female, but movie goers will probably receive a male lead easier than that of a female when it comes to super heroes. History on the big screen says so. Catwoman, Elektra….you get the point. The female super hero makes for a fantastic addition to a team or partner, Storm, Black Widow, Elektra….you get the point. If you can snag the first appearance of the Kree Captain Marvel for $125, you have yourself a nice addition to your collection.

The West Coast Avengers make their way into Hulk Smash Avengers #4. The West Coast Avengers first appeared in 1984’s West Coast Avengers #1. The team went on to have their ongoing in 1985 that lasted 9 years and ended at issue #102. Nice run there! With all of the hoopla surrounding the Avengers movie, expect to see more of this team in the future.

Astonishing X-Men #50 promises an ending that will be “the most talked about moment of the year”. Okay we’ll see about that….

DC Comics introduces a new villain in Superman #9. She is wearing a silly shirt though.

Rob Liefeld takes over art duties in The Savage Hawkman #9. Nice cover Rob.

Justice League Dark #9 introduces a new team roster, with major changes reverberating throughout the DC Universe during this arc. We’ll see about this as well…..

A new Batman series hits this week. Batman Incorporated #1. Should be a great start here.

There are two number one issues you may want to check out this week, Dark Horse’s Resident Alien #1 and IDW’s Godzilla #1. And for those interested, Godzilla first appeared within the comic book world way back in 1977’s Godzilla King of Monsters #1 from Marvel. The comic was penciled by legend Herb Trimpe! Twenty dollars will get you this little gem.

That’s it for this week. Lastly, the InvestComics Hot Picks Chicks will be here appearing again soon (lots of them!).

Welcome to InvestComics Hot Picks 5-16-12 – Marvel Cosmic Special

InvestComics has always been ahead of the curve in many ways over the last 6 years. Even back when InvestComics was just a free “investment” magazine about 6 years ago, over the years we called out the Walking Dead #1 before it came out, Superman and the DC Universe to lose their underwear in order for DC to be on the next level again, recommended countless Bronze and Silver Age comics that have seen a significant increase in value, called out Kick Ass as a movie before the number one issue even hit the comic shops and of course the mention of Iron Man #55 in the very first issue of InvestComics magazine. Thanos’ first appearance…….more on that in a sec. Onwards the predictions came to fruition. Yes there are many others that haven’t come true either! But if you’re a savvy player in a volatile market, you’re more often right than you are wrong.

Why do we mention all of this you ask? Well if you have been under a rock for the past couple of weeks and have not seen The Avengers movie (you should) then you really should not read on. A SPOILER WARNING for you!

By now all of us know that at the end credits of The Avengers movie Thanos appears. Back in 2009 InvestComics wrote an article about how Thanos as well as the Marvel Cosmic Universe was being neglected. As the technology becomes an absolute dream to comic fans and Hollywood for that matter regarding movie magic, Marvel will probably venture into the Cosmo’s. And yes InvestComics was on this years ago. So before we get to a couple of Hot Picks to check out this week, let’s take a look the CREATOR himself of Thanos via Interview on InvestComics TV Mr. Jim Starlin from April of 2011, speaking about the creation of Thanos and an article from 2009………

InvestComics 2009 article: Cosmic Hot Picks

Thanos should be in serious consideration for a Marvel movie. Think about the entire Marvel movie library thus far that have and will come out, all “good” guys. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a villain wreaking havoc on some innocent people then have Warlock show up, or better yet a “Cosmic team” Guardians of the Galaxy maybe?? The storylines and characters are endless. Captain Marvel would be spectacular wouldn’t he? Let’s get that Silver Surfer movie going and introduce some of these characters, thus spinning some of them off into their own solo movies. It would open another arena for Hollywood and Marvel that would be a fanboys sci-fi dream. Think about this, Marvel has and will have spend the next couple of years absolutely killing the comic book market with everything Cosmic from Annihilation to the War of Kings. Fans are eating this stuff up. It’s storytelling at its best here folks, that’s why it’s doing so well. Warlock, Drax, Guardians of The Galaxy, Quasar, Terrax and Captain Marvel, and the list goes on. The epic Marvel ‘Space’ movie has yet been made and with the special effects as ridiculously good as they are these days…..what is the hold up? The Cosmo’s await their turn on the silver screen and a Thanos flick would be a choice that would be an absolute slam dunk.

So here is a very small list of some Marvel Cosmic characters that should be in your collection. What do you think? Do you have some heroes or villains that need to be on this list?

Warlock: First Appearance – Fantastic Four #’s 66 & 67 (1967)

Thanos & Drax: First Appearance – Iron Man #55 (1973)

Guardians of the Galaxy: First Appearance – Marvel Super-Heroes #18 (1969)

Quasar: First Appearance – Incredible Hulk #234 (1979)

Terrax: First Appearance – Fantastic Four #211 (1979)

Captain Marvel: First Appearance – Marvel Super-Heroes #12 (1967)

Rom: First Appearance – Rom #1 (1979)

So there you have it, a very short and concise article regarding the Marvel Cosmic Universe back a few years back. Thanos appeared in the first InvestComics magazine with the mention that this villain will in fact blow up sooner than later. The reference on InvestComics was “Thanos will be the modern day Darth Vader”. Write this down folks, it’s going to happen and you heard it here first.

This week Hot Picks sees a short list to cover.

Amazing Spider-Man: Ends of Earth #1 begins the death of Doc Ock storyline right? That is where we’re headed right? No surprises here. But it does have that real cool on the cusp of really being cool Brit character Union Jack appearing in this issue. Check out Jack’s first appearance in the very affordable Invaders #7. The next issue has the cooler cover though of Union Jack, but just like the character himself, he always seems late to the party and thus receiving that second rate hero tag.

[scrollGallery id=119]

X-Factor #236 features the first appearance of Shattershot. No not the Transformer Shattershot…..we hope not.

Justice League #9 has all signs of impending doom on their ominous cover this week. Look for an introduction to a new big hurt in the new Justice League. Who is the new “major nemesis?” Find out and pick this comic up before it flies off the shelf!

Before we go……

Also this week on InvestComics You tube channel, the latest EXPLICT episode of Booze, cooze and reviews episode #3 has arrived. Reminder here, if you are easily offended DO NOT click ahead to watch Amber tell it like it is on her review show. Here’s the way it goes. If you’re a Howard Stern fan click ahead, if you’re a Rush Limbaugh fan, don’t click ahead. No fluff to be found here, no blowhard, just simple honest open minded truthfulness from Amber. WARNING: EXPLICT LANGUAGE ahead if you click this right HERE.

…..And last but not least, lots of InvestComics Hot Picks Chicks coming your way soon!! Beautiful girls promoting InvestComics and Superherostuff.com!

For now though, scroll through some beautiful covers coming out this week below.
