NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday.

This week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Shazam #1 (1973) graded 9.0. This beauty is only $100 plus free shipping. The first appearance of the Marvel Family in the DC Universe and the origin retold. With so much talk of a Shazam movie and the rumors dying down because nothing is coming to fruition, the comic price has come down a bit. Perfect time to buy. Maybe press this book and up the grade a bit? Movie or no movie, this comic at this grade, at this price is a good buy. 

Valiant Entertainment gets the top slot this week. The Hot Pick of the week with Faith #1. Written by Jody Houser, art from Francis Portela and Marguerite Sauvage. Check out the InvestComics review of this comic right HERE. It received a great review from our reviewer Ian Powers and we’re telling you that Faith #1 will be a hit. It’s already sold out at the distributor level with a second print arriving on the same day as the first print! Already covered by multiple media source outlets, the comic will be a huge hit for Valiant. Our reviewer says (and he’s a film director) that the Faith character could easily find her way to a live medium. We truly partake in that opinion. Pick up the first print of Faith #1 on Wednesday. If not lucky enough, grab a second print. If not lucky enough, a third print is probably not that far behind.
A few variants will accompany this release on Wednesday. The Clayton Henry CGC graded 9.8 variant is an eye catcher for sure! 
As many of you already may know and some don’t, Faith was originally the character Zephyr. Zephyr first appeared way back in 1992’s Harbinger #1 (Valiant). As long as the Faith character catches on, so will the Harbinger #1 comic. Lots of copies of this comic available on Ebay.

Bloodshot Reborn #10 (Valiant) will begin a new story arc. Bloodshot is Analog Man! The regular and penciled variant covers are fantastic. The Jeff Lemire cover is quite awesome as well. A must read/get!

InvestComics has been on top of Monstress since its inception a few months ago. We tell you now that Monstress #3 will release this week. Keep on top of this series. Good read and potential super hit when word really spreads about this comic.

DC begins to bank on the Suicide Squad movie coming out in August with the release of Suicide Squad Most Wanted Deadshot Katana #1. By the time July rolls around, the last issue of this 6 issue mini will be out. An early start, but ending a month before the movie release. We’re quite sure we’ll see lots more Suicide Squad comics, variants, appearances before then too.

Superman Lois and Clark #4 will gives readers a better understanding as to why Lois gave Clark the lovely black Superman costume. Why Lois? Why? Do tell us.
A new group will be introduced in We Are Robin #8. The Jokers are their name and speculation is our game! Ah see what we did? We rhymed. We’re super hip. Lee Bermejo provides the great Joker cover with the Jokers. The DC Hot Pick of the week!

We’re not quite sure why all of the hoopla when the cover of All-New All-Different Avengers #4 was revealed a while back. Captain America and Thor are kissing…..so? Now if it were the original characters, that may be a bit different, and we still wouldn’t even care then either, but these two? What’s the big deal here? Fanboys either love it or hate it. What side are you on? Civil War! Wait, wait wrong wrong, all wrong.

Check out the first appearance of Loop in Deadpool and Cable Split Second #2.
The Mike Deodato Jr. Old Man Logan #1 variant is the best of all the covers. At $25, it’s a bit steep though.

Cosmic Times and Kevin LaPorte team up for a one shot; Scales Of Time #1.

Once again, InvestComics had the collector from the start with another series that keeps selling out. Henchgirl #4 is sold out. That marks the fourth sellout in a row. Henchgirl has unofficially caught on to a fanbase. And the number one issue (which we told you about) actually has a short print run. 
Check out these new indie titles coming this Wednesday; Strayer #1 (After-Shock Comics), Cry Havoc #1 (Image), and Victorie City #1 (IDW).

Harley Quinn Checklist

Batman Harley Quinn

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – First DC Universe appearance in continuity – Click to Buy/Bid

Batman Adventures #12

Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – First ever appearance of Harley Quinn – Click to Buy/Bid

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

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

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

Batman Adventures #28 (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #1 (1995)

Batman Adventures: Holiday Special (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #8 (1996)

Batman and Superman Adventures: Worlds Finest (1997)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Batman 613

Batman #613 – Click to Buy/Bid

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Iron Fist Checklist

Marvel Premiere #15 (1974) The first appearance of Iron Fist. The holy grail of Iron Fist comics. Writer Roy Thomas, Pencils and cover Gil Kane, and inker Dick Giodano.

When Marvel/Netflix get it together, Iron Fist will be a household name. If for some reason it doesn’t work out with Netflix, look for Marvel to want to hit the big screen instead. The mere fact that the Iron Fist character is mentioned so much these days shows a tremendous amount of interest on Marvel’s (Disney’s) part. So with that, Marvel will start the Kung-Fu entertainment revolution once again either way. This comic also features the first appearances of Ferocia, Harold Meachum, Nuan, Wendell Rand, Heather Rand. Shu-Hu, and Yu-Ti.

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu #1 (1974) First appearance of Lin Sun, Robert Diamond, and Abraham Brown.

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu Special #1 (1974) The second appearance of Iron Fist. This is a magazine form comic.

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

Marvel Premiere #16 (1974) Iron Fist’s second comic book appearance. First appearances of Fu-Hsi. Scythe, Shou-Lao the Undying, and Thunderer. Origin continued.

Marvel Premiere #17 (1974) First appearance of Triple-Iron.

Marvel Premiere #18 (1974) First appearance of Joy Meachum. Iron Fist origin issue.

Marvel Premiere #19 (1974) The first appearances of Colleen Wing and Professor Lee Wing. This comic also signifies the first appearance of Wolverine via an ad within the comic. It predates The Incredible Hulk #181. Cool stuff.

Marvel Premiere #21 (1975) First appearances of Shaya, Ushas and Misty Knight.

Creator Kaare Andrews handles the writing, art, inks, colors and cover art for all twelve issues. Each cover outdoes the previous. Kaare is the game changer to Iron Fist as Todd was to Spidey, Miller to Daredevil, Platt to Moon Knight, etc. Buy this series, it will not disappoint. Issue #1; first appearances of Pei and Brenda Swanson. Issue #2; first Sparrow. Issue #4; first appearance of The One. Issue #6; first appearance of Fooh.

Master of Kung-Fu #1 (2015) It’s just a matter of time after Iron Fist is a hit on television or the big screen with the fans that we get more Kung-Fu characters. Here’s a bunch of intro’s in one book. Cy, Laughing Skull, Rand-K’ai, Razor Fist, Red Sai, and Typhus.

Batgirl #43 deals with the mysterious Velvet Tiger. She was first introduced in Detective Comics #518 (1982). This comic also happens to be an early Deadshot appearance with a fantastic Jim Aparo cover.

The Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #1 comic is one of those video game comic books. All the covers look absolutely stunning. Stjepan Sejic, Jim Lee and the Incentive cover (no name listed). In which the incentive cover is the best of the bunch in our humble opinion. The introduction of the new villain; Arkham Knight! Awesome comic here.

Superman vs Deathstroke in Deathstroke #9. This looks like a fun fight! In all actuality it should last a shorter time than a Ronda Rousey fight, but we’ll read and watch anyway.

Throughout the years InvestComics has explained that there is something within the speculative/collectors market that is just as important as the first appearance of a character. Sometimes an overlooked nugget, but most are privy to it. A characters second appearance is not only a fun get, but sometimes very affordable. Sometimes not, therein is the chance to make your decision as an investor to jump in or not. We cannot make that decision for you, nor would we. We will simply guide you and the rest is up to you.

As all of the Creator Spotlights on InvestComics, each and every one of the creators have their own uniqueness. Rob Liefeld stormed into the industry back in 1987 and took the industry by the proverbial ears, starred into its eyes and said “I’m taking over.” So he he did.

He was one of the busiest creators in the industry at one time. The man was churning out comics at a ridiculous rate. That was good for the fans because they couldn’t seem to get enough.

Check out some of Rob Liefeld’s key books in his vast career thus far. Everything from Deadpool to Jada Pinkett Smith. Yes Jada….

New Mutants #98 (1991) Well here it is. The Holy Grail. Only fours years into his professional career, Rob hits on a character that will forever change his career and the Marvel character landscape. The cover alone has been paid respect to so many times throughout the years. Rob Liefeld introduced the world to Deadpool and Marvel had a character for the ages. Not much can be said about this comic and character that hasn’t been said already, but Rob is officially a superstar now.

X-Force #1 (1991) This comic was ridiculously hot back in the early 90’s. Too many copies released prevented it from gaining any substantial aftermarket heat. Rob pencils/inks and cover art. Many collectors these days go after the bagged issue with the Deadpool trading card. Claiming it’s an early appearance of Deadpool. It’s a card. Seriously, it’s a card, not a comic appearance.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 9-4-13

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

HUGE Hot Picks List. DC Comics runs the table this week with their 3D extravaganza, but more on that in a bit……

Okay don’t mean to rehash, but there is a reason here. Stick with me…..A couple of weeks ago when Warner Brothers announced the signing of Ben Affleck as the latest man to don the cowl, the internet basically broke in pieces of whining fanboys. I can say honestly, I haven’t witnessed an outcry like this in a while. Well since the last major announcement of a superhero casting. Say Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and on and on. I could not believe that I read about a petition being set up to have Ben Affleck removed as Batman. It’s an absolute travesty that fanboys will go this far, or even complain as much as they have in the first place. This is what Warner Brothers decided. There is no changing it. Get a grip, move on. The out lash was so compelling to me that I decided to create a new Facebook page called Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben. If you are a supporter of Ben Affleck as Batman, you should get over to that page and tell any of your friends as well. If not, well that’s fine! You’re entitled to your opinion, but please do not make a fool of yourself. So why do I bring this up today you may ask? I had a few moments to put together a fun 52 second video regarding fanboys that feel compelled to cry about everything. It was done out of fun, no malicious intent here so chill. Watch the video and pass it around. Maybe it will give that whiny fanboy a wakeup call that the world is not going to collapse around them because of a casting for a superhero movie. Get over it.

InvestComics has booked their flight to New York Comic Con 2013! This trip will include a first. An InvestComics team! Rafael Rosario of Ratchet City Comics will be accompanying InvestComics as a Press member. This is a big deal folks. This means more interviews, more coverage, and best of all….more prizes!

….And a couple of news items are coming down the pike from InvestComics soon so stay close to the vest via the InvestComics Newsletter and InvestComics Facebook page!

Let’s be honest here, DC Comics is doing a tremendous job with their money grab. Give them credit here. One thing many have to have to understand is that DC Comics is a business and they do not care what fans think. They really don’t. This is a business first business. Do not kid yourselves into believing that the fans make an iota impact in their decision making. If it did, well the New 52 would never have been. Case in point this week with the 3D cover gimmick. Most readers and collectors haven’t seen the likes of this type of gimmick since the 90’s glow in the dark covers. Fun stuff! So the question here is, does the gimmick destroy the content on the inside? Well that’s for each individual to decide for themselves. What is known about this gimmick is that fans are eating it up like candy! Every single 3D cover is SOLD OUT! That’s right folks! SOLD OUT!

So what does this mean to you? Well this means that if you want to make some serious cash, this would be a fine time to do so. Two things to do here to make the most bang for your buck. One; grab the most popular 3D “character” cover and get it graded by CGC. A high grade is extremely important here. Two; after you get the most “popular”, try to figure out through the numbers game (Diamond Distributors) which comic received the lowest print run. This will be a quick sale for you right now, but in the long haul, you should hold onto one because when the aftermarket settles down, it’s the “rare” book everyone loves. Again, the only way you maximize your monies here is with a very high grade.

Here at InvestComics, I decided to have some fun and look at each individual 3D cover and pair it up with the first appearance of the villain takeover. Scroll through the covers and see them side by side, pretty awesome. So without further ado in alphabetical order………

DC 3D Comics 9-4-13

[scrollGallery id=293]

Forever Evil #1Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 features a Cyborg Superman takeover. Cyborg’s first (not Hank) is in Adventures of Superman #466 (1990).

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Joker cover, and his debut of course came in Batman #1 (1940).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Two-Face cover, his first is in Detective Comics #66 (1942).

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Ventriloquist takeover – her first; Detective Comics #583 (1988), with art by Norm Breyfogle and cover by Mike Mignola, very nice.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Poison Ivy cover – her debut; Batman #181 (1966).

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #15.1 – Desaad cover – First appearance; Forever People #2 (1971), Jack Kirby nuff’ said.

Flash (2011) #23.1 – Grodd – Debuted in Flash #106 (1959).

Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #23.1 with Count Vertigo; first appeared in World’s Finest #251 (1978).

Showcase #73Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Relic. First appearance in Green Lantern #21 (2013)

Justice League (2011) #23.1 – The BEST of the 3D bunch right here. The villain of all DC villains – Darkseid! Refer back to the InvestComics article ‘InvestComics Hot Pick: Single Issue – Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134’ to better understand just how important Darkseid is in the DC Universe.

Justice League Dark (2011) #23.1 – The Creeper first appeared in Showcase #73 (1968). Created by Legend Steve Ditko!

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.1 – Deadshot first appeared in Batman #59 (1950). A highly underrated character.

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.1 – Bizarro debuted in Superboy #68 (1958).

So that’s all of the 3D madness this week for you. The one comic that will claim responsibility for the villain takeover this week would be Forever Evil (2013 DC) #1. Although with Geoff Johns at the helm here, probably talking a great storyline folks, but as far as monetarily in a few years? Forever Evil #1 will not command much at all, neither will many of these 3D books. Do not hold onto these for long term investments, you will get burned. This is a gimmick upswing; the collector needs to monitor the aftermarket here to make the most on their profits. Stay close to the market, check often and dump when the time is right.

So what else is going on in DC land this week? How about Batman Black and White (2013) #1? All variants for this particular comic are SOLD OUT. With various star artist and writers on this book, and coupled with some spectacular variant covers these comics will do very well in the aftermarket. Get your hands on these. Also from DC we get a royal rumble of sorts; DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe (2013) #1. There are plenty of copies available still, but boy this is going to be a fun comic.

With DC Comics running the table this week, there are a few Marvel Comics to check out and an Indie book NOT to be missed! More on that Indie book in a little bit.

Marvel will bring Spider-Man 2099 back this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #17! Spidey 2099 first came onto the scene in Spider-Man 2099 #1 (1992). However, this week with Superior Spider-Man #17 making the 2099 comeback a big deal, the variants have SOLD OUT. Once again, get your hands on these beautiful variants. They have upside here. Spidey 2099 will be popular once again, so don’t miss the train.

A major X-Men crossover event begins this week (coincidence I think not). Check out X-Men Battle of the Atom (2013) #1 and guess what? Every single variant here is SOLD OUT! ….While the covers are gorgeous, no longevity here in the aftermarket. This is just another crossover event that will probably get many fanboy panties in a bunch anyway.

Venom (2011 Marvel) #40 will focus on the new character Mania. Check HER out. And rounding out Marvel this week; Avengers A.I. (2013) #3 will debut a new world named The Diamond.

Speaking of diamond……..

Anyone remember what happened when Star Wars #1 was released a few months back? Yes, it went nuts in the aftermarket. How about Dark Horse going with Star Wars (2013 Dark Horse) Lucas Draft #1 this week? All variants on this comic are SOLD OUT. This comic is the “rough draft” of the original screenplay of the movie. Seems like a little bit of fluff here, but we’re in! This will be an Indie book not to be missed this week! Here are a few more Indie’s to check out this week; Invincible (2003) #105 solicit reads that this is a big jumping on point if you’d like, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #1 (All variants SOLD OUT), Reality Check (2013 Image) #1 (Lots of copies left here, but Image Comics has been of fire as of late), Hit (2013 Boom Studios) #1 (Not many copies left to be had), Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #1 (Same here, not many copies left), and Love Stories To Die For (2013 Image) #1 (Cover A sits with only 9 copies in the warehouse while there are plenty of cover B’s).

Whew!! That’s a big week!

InvestComics Super Sunday Comic Hot Picks 2-8-12

Welcome to the Super Sunday InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 2-8-12

Yes it’s Superbowl Sunday and it’s also time for your regular Sunday column! Included this week is a special mini gallery, but more on that shortly……Let’s check some Hot Picks first.

DC’s Suicide Squad #6 continues to sell nicely, as most of the New 52 line. This week in SS#6 the Squad needs to hunt down Harley Quinn led by team leader Deadshot. Deadshot is a very cool underrated character at times and it’s about time people stand up and take notice. Deadshot first appeared way back in 1950 in Batman #59. This comic is a light $2000. Not too shabby to take a “shot” at this comic.

Sticking to the death theme here, Deathstroke #6 will be coming out much to the glee of FFFIC’s very own Shaun Sorenson. Shaun loves this book and InvestComics loves this character. Deathstroke is a total badas* and so is his first appearance in The New Teen Titans #2 (1980). Bad as*es George Perez and Marv Wolfman also are attached to this undervalued book. A mere $48 for Mr. Wilson’s first appearance is a steal.

When exactly are we going to get the big reveal in Marvel’s Battle Scar’s? We know it’s coming right? Check out this week’s issue number four upon arrival to see if we get the “I’m Nick Fury’s son” reveal. Should be a nice moment, not shocking right?

FFFIC’s Sebastian Piccione loves the Secret Avengers comic. So much to his glee (everyone is happy this week!) issue number 22 comes out.  The issue features an appearance of Adaptoids. Although the Adaptoids are and will probably always fade into obscurity, it’s always fun to search where these characters originate from. Did you know that the first Super-Adaptoid appeared in Tales of Suspense #82 in 1966? Probably not, but it’s one of those useless knowledge things that maybe you could carry around with you to impress your fellow comic book buddies. Not! Anyway, the cover of TOS #82 features an amazing Jack Kirby cover (as usual) and comes in at the $100 range.

Three more comics to check out also this week are Ted McKeever’s Mondo #1. Ted has been in the game since 1987 and has an extensive resume to say the least. You can own his first published work for only $2! Look for Ted McKeever’s Transit #1 from Vortex Comics. Kevin Keller, Archie’s first gay character Kevin Keller debuts in his new ongoing series. His first appearance is in Veronica #202. Conan #1 from Dark Horse Comics hits the shelf this week. Conan’s first appearance as we all know came in Roy Thomas’/Barry Windsor-Smith’s Marvel book in 1970, a $360 book that looks to be at a stalemate considering the last movie as well as nothing to gain traction for it. Maybe Dark Horse will get the ball rolling again? We’ll see….

Well the Superbowl is upon us. All the hype gets put to rest today and we get to watch a football game! So what does the Superbowl have to do with comics? Absolutely nothing actually! One thing can definitely be said about sports and comics. They just don’t mesh well at all. Want some proof? No problem! Take a look below after the Covers of the Week and you can scroll through a few sports related comics (with a couple of “surprises” for us boys). You’ll soon realize that Sports are sports and Comics are comics, not to be mixed, but fun nonetheless! Enjoy.

See you next week, Invest wisely.
