Happy holiday’s to all of our fans! You have continued our reign as the longest entertainment/speculative comic book website on the net. We appreciate every single one of you. Let’s get to this week’s comics….

Although we think Marvel is playing up the Phoenix return a bit too much, a new dedicated comic this Wednesday declares the big return; Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Leinil Francis Yu.
Star Wars fans will be happy campers this Wednesday. If you have seen The Last Jedi movie, you will have learned and seen a planet named Crait. A salt ridden planet in which the Resistance did battle with the First Order many years before. A new comic this week will focus in on that battle. Check out Star Wars The Last Jedi – The Storms of Crait #1. Creators Ben Acker, Ben Blacker and Mike Mayhew do the honors.
Amazing Spider-Man #793 continues the hot Venom Inc. (part 4) storyline.
Looks as though The Purple Man character is really making his presence felt lately. Jessica Jones #15; Return of The Purple Man part 3. Purple Man first appeared in Daredevil #4 (1964).

Buy/Bid – Amz Spm #793

Buy/Bid – Doomsday #2

Action Comics #994

Buy/Bid – Hawkman #1

Teen Titans #15

DC’s Doomsday Clock #2 arrives this week. Fans ate up the first issue with a mostly reserved opinion on whether or not they’ll like where writer Geoff Johns is leading us to, let’s see how the follow-up goes. We have great faith it will go just right.
A possible new villain appearance in Action Comics #994. “Booster Shot” part 2.
The “Super Sons of Tomorrow” story continues in Teen Titans #15.
Phoenix is back for Marvel this week, Hawkman will bid his return this week as well. Check out Hawkman Found #1 from Jeff Lemire, Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.
A new release from Scout Comics; Ghosts of Hiroshima #1. With Scout comics, two things are always guaranteed, good art and good storytelling. Creators; Jim Krueger and Luigi Borillo.
From interesting new release from Image Comics; Bonehead #1 from creators Bryan Edward Hill and Rhoald Marcellius.
Not sure how much of the new Cerebus comic is new material (if at all), but with creative names like Dave Sim and Frank Miller (Dark Knight homage cover) attached, no matter; The Vark Knight Returns #1.
Comix Tribe had Sink #3 on delay, so we’re not sure if Sink #4 will hit this week. It’s supposed to, so we’ll see. It’s a hot series for the Tribe, so hopefully they get back on schedule.

Scarlett’s Strike Force #1 (IDW); creators Aubrey Sitterson and Nelson Daniel.
Magika #1 (Red Giant); creators David Lawrence, Kevin Juaire and Sebastian Cheng.
Zipper: Cosmic Jungle #1 (Arcana Comics).

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Black Panther #1 (1977) 8.5. Here’s a beauty waiting to be bought for only $100.00. His first solo comic. Black Panther still has upside. His new comic coming out, a yet to be seen appearance in Cap’s Civil War movie, and a solo movie. Yes more upside for a character that hasn’t even hit its stride yet in film and the new comic book is getting all kinds of hype too. Black Panther is and will be the real deal.

Fanboys, please do not email us or make fanboy comments on our social media or here. If you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading please. If you’ve ever had a heated debate/fight/argument/cried (as an adult) over who is stronger Hulk or Superman or anything similar resembling a deep love of a comic character and know nothing about business, then please skip the opening here.

Have you’ve seen the new Deadpool movie? Well if haven’t, you probably have seen the aftermarket going bonkers after its release. New Mutants #87 (first full appearance of Cable) is quickly becoming the NEW New Mutants #98. This isn’t a bad thing if you’re on the side of the seller. If you’re a buyer, well you’re going to have to pay a severe premium in order to get your hands on the Cable book if you want it. Here’s the thing, and we’ve said it time and time again within the blogs of the InvestComics website. The New Mutants #98 comic is overpriced and so is (will be) New Mutants #87. The absurdity in pricing for these comics is almost comical actually.
Here are some quick numbers. Let us remind you here, CBCS does not have a census. Which means these numbers are probably much higher. These are CGC numbers…..
There are a total of 1000 New Mutants #87 graded at 9.8. 1087 graded at 9.6. A total of 3804 graded so far. That’s currently, that number will climb steadily and remember, this does not include CBCS. New Mutants #98; 2307 graded at 9.8, 2806 graded at 9.6 and a total of 9514 total graded. Probably over 10,000 graded counting CBCS.
Doctor Strange #169 (1968) 30 graded at 9.8, 70 graded at 9.6 and a total of 1063 graded. How is it that New Mutants #98 is rivaling this comic? Now all the fanboys got their panties in a bunch. Relax. We understand it’s a popularity contest right now, but here is some truth that the other wannbe InvestComics sites will not tell you. The Doctor Strange book is by far and away a better sound investment. Instead of spending $400/$500 on a first appearance on a comic(s) that are well documented as to having many copies available, use your business tactics and understand that supply and demand will eventually equate into the equation here and you will lose if you hold onto your comic a bit too long. It’s inevitable, you will lose money on New Mutants #87 and #98 because you refused to let it go. Anyone spending large amounts of money to have these comics in their possession, better have a plan to sell at an opportune time or else you will be in the red. Just in case you haven’t notice, we’ll say it, the comic book market has been and continues to see a massive correction. Especially the moderns. That first appearance of Spider-Gwen (variant) that InvestComics advised AGAINST buying at ridiculous prices is more than $300/$400/$500 below its asking price from more than a year ago. InvestComics warned our fans, while the other fanboy sites encouraged the buying frenzy. We’re here to spill truth and guide you, not help you lose money. Do not give into the hype of a comic or comics that saw prints of upwards to 225k a piece (New Mutants #98 and a bit less for New Mutants #87). That’s a quarter of a million copies of ONE comic book. What does this mean actually? Well it means there are several dealers and collectors that are sitting on long boxes full of Deadpool and Cable first appearance comic books. Can we say the same for a classic comic like Doctor Strange #169? No we cannot. Not hating on the first Deadpool or Cable here, but use common sense when spending that hard earned money. Realize that these two particular comics have a ceiling AND more importantly a ground floor. If you’re a buyer at a premium for ANY 90’s (*ahem* Doomsday *ahem* Apocalypse) or modern book), you have to know when to dump it or when the correction in the market does in FACT happen, you’ll be in the red and you’ll never make that money back. We’ve said this before, we’ll say it again. the real money is in Bronze/Silver/Golden. And one more thing. About Doomsday and Apocalypse, most likely one trick ponies. We’ll see them once and they’ll fade into obscurity never to be seen again on the big screen, thus driving that premium price back to the correct area.

And the award for longest title of the week goes to…….Hellboy and the BPRD 1953 Beyond The Fences #1! With this award the readers will get Writers Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson along with artist’s Paolo Rivera and Joe Rivera. Hellboy: Year Two. Yep, we’re in.

Maybe DC Comics received a special bundle price for the amount of Neal Adams variant covers we’re getting this month. Here are the covers this week from the legend himself; Flash #49, Deathstroke #15 (the Tyler Kirkman regular cover kills), Aquaman #49, Superman Lois And Clark #5, We Are Robin #9, Teen Titans #17, Cyborg #8, Grayson #17, and Superman #49.
And for the second week in a row, a Neal Adams Superman Wonder Woman variant comic is sold out. Check out Superman Wonder Woman #26 as Korean artist extraordinaire Kim Jung Gi pencils his second issue with the big three (Supes, WW, and Bats). We informed our fans last week about Kim Jung Gi. This guy is the real deal. Kim actually does the cover art for one of these variants (pictured here).
The real reason we have Neal Adams overload this month is because Superman The Coming Of The Supermen #1 will be coming out. Neal Adams will be the writer/artist here for the six issue mini-series. Fans are looking forward to a boldly told story and art from Neal. He will not disappoint here.

After a slight blip, Batman Dark Knight III The Master Race #3 will be back on schedule. And with it, as usual, a ridiculous amount of variant covers. All the covers are nice, nothing so riveting that you’ll need to pluck down a months worth of allowance for, but the Midtown Comics Greg Capullo cover is cool (pictured here).

Crazy eye candy from cover from Lee Bermejo coming this Wednesday. Check out We Are Robin #9. And more of the same from Michael Cho’s Daredevil #4 (Vol 5).

IDW pits two unlikely franchises together for the first time ever, Street Fighter X and GI Joe. Yep, fun for all! A whole bunch of nutty variants will be available. The Matt Waite pixel cover is good, but our fav is the Paolo Villanelli cover.

Comic fans will be introduced to an all new mutant on new comic book day. Check out the introduction of Bailey Hoskins in X-Men Worst X-Man Ever #1. Definitely a comic to pay attention to.
Marvel warns fans about the last page in All New All Different Avengers #6. Don’t go to your shop and open to the last page now! It’s not a library you know! Hahaha!

It’s up to Faith and Valiant to keep them now.

Better get your hands on these indie’s; Straitjacket #4 (Amigo Comics) is sold out. Gingerdead Man #1 (Action Lab/Danger Zone) is sold out. Plus Ultra #2 (Overground Comics) is sold out.

Daredevil #160 (1979) – The very next issue we get the first Bullseye cover (in costume) from Miller.

Daredevil #169 (1981) – It only took Miller a few issues after he starting writing the Daredevil series to work Bullseye in. The first time Bullseye gets the Miller treatment (writer).

Daredevil #170 (1981) – The Kingpin makes his first appearance ever in a Daredevil comic. Frank Miller had a vision and it worked. Bullseye appears for the first time with Kingpin.

Daredevil #181 (1982) – One of the most iconic comic books in history here, the Death of Elektra. The Daredevil Netflix series will have Elektra joining the cast and this comic story is bound to make it to the show. When it does, watch as this overprinted awesome comic commands some ridiculous aftermarket monies. If you do not own this comic by now, you should get it.

What If #35 (1982) – A few months after knocking off Elektra, Marvel immediately went to the well and made this comic. They already knew they struck a cord with comic fans and were cashing in. See they’ve been doing this for years! Frank Miller writes and pencils this alternate universe story. Oh and legend Steve Ditko pencils the first appearance of the Cat People in another story. No really, we’re not making that up.

Daredevil #197 (1983) – Yuriko (later becomes Lady Deathstryke) makes her first appearance. Bullseye appearance.

Daredevil #200 (1983) – A classic John Byrne/Terry Austin cover.

Alpha Flight #34 (1986) – Bullseye finally steps away from the Daredevil comic. His first appearance outside a DD comic is in this Alpha Flight comic. Alpha Flight? Odd. He’s not on the cover though.

What If…#2 (1989) – “What If Daredevil had killed Kingpin?” Here’s a unique book. It’s Greg Capullo’s first professional work (outside of FantaCo and Pocket Comics). 5 years before he ever touched the Batman character.

Daredevil #284 (1990) – Bullseye appears with Typhoid Mary for the first time.

Daredevil #286 (1990) – Greg Capullo fills in for this one issue.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 12-7-11

Welcome to InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 12-7-11.

First thing on the agenda today (some self promoting!) will be pointing out that the new Vincent Price Present #36 comic coming out this week will be my very own first published work. A word of warning here before all of the animal activists gets their panties in a bunch. It’s a horror story that in no way depicts the boundaries of who I am as a person. I love animals, and so does Stephen King.

So moving on from the unnecessary explanation, I want to thank once again a fantastic team that helped my story come to life. The President of Bluewater Productions Darren Davis, the awesome artistry of Stefano Cardoselli, and colorist extraordinaire Jeff Balke. All of you guys rock, and thank you for making my dream a reality starting point.

So technically Vincent Price #36 falls under the Hot Picks umbrella. It’s the first published work of a newbie. I’m picking one up!

Marvel Comics is daring to change the Marvel Universe landscape once again. If everyone received a penny for each time marvel has thrown out the phrase in one of their solicits “this will change the face of the Marvel Universe”, or something close to that, Marvel would probably be filing for Chapter 11 again. That being said, will this mean that we will not be checking Hulk #45? Of course not, we have to, curiosity killed the reader no? Hopefully not a big letdown……

The Defenders comic is back! Remember back in the day how much fun this comic was? Well it’s back with another go-around. However, this Defenders team features the original ensemble minus the big green guy with some added members. Another minus to point out has to be the ridiculous 6 variant covers.

The 2011 version of the Defenders will be brought to you by writer Matt Fraction, and artist Terry Dodson. The defensive teams first appearance can be found in Marvel Feature #1 (1971) for $200. Four years ago this comic was within the $70 range. I know this personally because I bought it back then. Not a tremendous turnaround, but a decent one at the very least.

This week on the new comic book shelf you will find a comic that will feature some of the lamest third rate villains ever assembled in a comic. Villains For Hire #1 has a lineup that will make some say “who? what?.” Since Marvel was so kind enough to even give us this book, we should have fun with it too. There are a total of seven villains appearing in this book. If you decide you want to have some fun hunting down their first appearances, be very prepared to pay your deductable and then some. Here is the list you’ll need to have on hand.

 

 

 

 

Daredevil #4 (1964) – First appearance of Purple Man. Purple is an expensive color. $800 

Amazing Spider-Man #46 (1967) – First Appearance of Shocker. Not too bad of a jolt at $300 

Uncanny X-Men #141 (1981) – First Avalanche. This comic is the best of the bunch. Not because of the Avalanche appearance, but because of everything else in this comic. John Byrne art, first appearances of Rachael Summers, Pyro, and a classic cover from Byrne and Austin to boot! No chill here.  

The Sub Mariner #5 (1968) – First Tiger Shark. Too much of a bite here at $60. 

Marvel Premiere #21 (1975) – First Misty Knight. A soggy $20. 

Amazing Spider-Man #222 (1981) – First Speed Demon. No quickie here at $16, but a great Walt Simonson cover! 

Thunderbolts #34 (1997) – First Scourge. Find this one in the 50 cent bins at your local shop.

Another X book from Marvel tests the waters this week, X-Club #1. The X-Men Science Team gets a comic. Yes that’s right, the X-Men Science Team.

Two Independent comics (Editor Note: 3 not including Vincent Price Presents #36) to check out this week. Irredeemable #32 will start a mini crossover event with Incorruptible. A lot of fun here because these two comics rock on their own. Also check out that ridiculously awesome cover from Trevor Hairsine! Anyone remember Voltron? Well they’re coming back in Voltron #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. The first take on a Voltron comic appeared in 1985 from Modern Comics. A $3 book.

Usually we don’t cover posters, but the new Carnage USA poster is a beauty from Clayton Crain. Click on the image to enlarge and admire the glorious piece.

Covers of the week below, check those out too.

See you next week.

Invest wisely.
