Brian K. Vaughan’s latest book will be hitting today; We Stand on Guard #1 (Image Comics). InvestComics thought what a fantastic time to get a creator list together from this amazingly talented writer!


Cable #43 (1997) Early professional comic work (Marvel). Brian teams with Todd Dezago on writing duties.

Ka-Zar 97 Annual (1997) First solo writing credits.

Wolverine #131 (1998) In Brian’s young comic career, the comic industry was turned upside on its head. A racial slur typo was immediately recalled as this became one of the most prolific error comics in history for all the wrong reasons. Vaughan/Dezago writing credits.

Vertigo Winter’s Edge #3 (2000) Here is Vaughan’s first DC (Vertigo) work. A Swamp Thing story.

The Titans #14 (2000) The first time Brian handles the superhero genre for DC Comics. Writing credits with Devin Kallie Grayson.

Swamp Thing #1 (2000) As series writer, Vaughan actually made the Swamp Thing an interesting deep character. If and when Swamp Thing finally comes to Netflix/network television or film, the producers will probably look right here for reference. The series lasted only 20 issues. A very interesting title for the last issue in this series (Swamp Thing #20); Saga. The title is right on the cover too. So technically, this is the first time the name Vaughan and Saga appear together on a cover. In the grand scheme of things. means absolutely nothing, but pretty cool nonetheless.

Wonder Woman #160 (2000) Brian writes two issues of Wonder Woman. This one and the following issue. Both have Adam Hughes covers.

Superman Annual #12 (2000) When writing the main story in this Superman annual, readers are introduced to Iman, El Muerto, and Acrata. And the Iman character resembles the new bunny robot Batman.

Now on to a rapid fire session of the Weekly Hot Picks…..








Independent comics are ruling the land this week. A few weeks back InvestComics told you about a very cool book on the WHP from 11-24-10 called Cyclops #1 (Archaia). It was pushed back until this week, so nothing different here, pick it up! Untouchable – One Shot (Dynamite) looks like an interesting pick up from writer Mike Carey of Marvel’s X-Men. Red hot series Morning Glories (Image) reaches its fifth issue already. Pick up these early issue’s of Morning Glories, something special going on here. Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook makes his debut into the comic book world, thanks to Blue Water comics. Also from Blue Water comics is Styx & Stone #1, check that one out as well.

The biggest Indie book this week goes to the much covered Archie #616. Many news outlets and other media have covered this comic well before its release this week. President Obama teams up with Sarah Palin in part 1 of Campaign Pair. That’s real sweet that they are sharing a shake from the same cup, wonder how the First Lady and Todd feel about this. Anyway, pick this collector’s item up, it just may be the first time that a former president, and a new president appear on the same cover at the same time.








Marvel comes at us with Iron Man #33. The Finale to Stark: Resilient storyline. Marvel says that the last 3 pages of this one will be “shocking”. Looking forward to getting zapped!

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 11-24-10

AlphaFlight1_1983Canada’s First Super Team takes Flight this week on InvestComics. Plus check out some more picks this week!



Chaos War Alpha Flight #1 will propel Canada’s team into their own series down the line eventually. Marvel will get the outcry for a new series, and they will respond. Alpha Flight has always been a favorite amongst fans. Look for the first appearance before Marvel picks up the ball again on this team. The first appearance would be found in Uncanny X-Men 120 (1979). Comics Price has this listed at only $100! A very nice bargain! Also check out John Byrne’s classic run on the self titled series beginning with Alpha Flight #1 from 1983. This comic was once the hottest number one issue of all the land back in the 80’s. Get this comic for only $4 today.







Eric Masterson makes his way back to a number one issue in Thunderstrike #1. Check out his first appearance from 1988 in Thor #391. This comic is only $3. Don’t look for the market to reach new heights with this comic. Just a decent first appearance in a Thor book.

The gimmick machine hits this week, and it looks like X-Men #4 second print would be guilty of this. A cool looking sideways cover. Anyone who is a bi-product of the 90’s immediately thinks of Rob Liefeld as the first guy to do the sideways cover and interior art. Wrong! Looks  like John Byrne beats most to the punch with his 1983 Fantastic Four #252. Coming in at only $6, this isn’t bad for a “first” gimmick comic done by a legend. Buy it, enjoy it, save it.







Speaking of gimmicks, isn’t that Captain America #612 TRON cover awesome?!?


Plenty of number one issues to choose from this week. Here are a few you should check out…






Astonishing Thor #1, Archaia’s Cyclops #1, Stan Lee’s The Traveler, Vampirella #1, and InvestComics sleeper number one book of the week is……Yonchi #1. Yep!

Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man  reaches a milestone. Issue #150 will have guest galore filling in to celebrate the momentous  occasion.






Detective Comics #871 get a new creator team on board.Scott Snyder and JOCK!

That’s it for this week. Happy Thanksgiving! Invest wisely.
