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: Batman 66 #21 graded 9.8. This modern book has no real bearing on any significance within the speculation market.  What it does have are FOUR signatures for only $69.99! With FREE shipping! A personal collectors piece for sure. The signatures include; Jeff Parker, Mike Allred, Laura Allred and Sandy Jarrell. That’s it. Go grab it!

A new Black Panther title will introduce a character named Zenzi. Pick up Black Panther World of Wakanda #1 to see her.
Riri Williams will become the latest female to take over a male Marvel character. Riri Williams will star in Invincible Iron Man #1 as the NEW Iron Man. Iron MAN? Hmmm…..okay. Anyway, this will be the latest of the female takeover of the Marvel universe characters that used to be male. Riri Williams first appeared in Invincible Iron Man #7. Riri Williams’ armor also made a cameo in this issue. J. Scott Campbell provides a non-controversial Riri Williams Iron Man variant cover.
There is something so satisfying on so many levels to read so many fans are still in a tizzy regarding Captain America as a Hydra dude. America always wins in comics, so relax will ya. Maybe this Wednesday will either send those tizzy fans over that proverbial edge or satisfy them. Captain America Steve Rogers #7 promises to rock our world. We’re ready, bring it!

Writer Gerry Conway and artist Ryan Stegman deliver the latest Spidey installment complete with new characters with Spidey powers. Check out Now Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 with lots of variant covers to choose from. One of the covers you can actually win from us and Unknown Comics. Enter to win right HERE. Good luck!
Penn of the comedy duo ‘Penn and Teller’ will write Spider-Man Deadpool #11. Penn Jillette has dabbed in the comic writing a few times. The first time was in Detective Comics #600 (1989). He’s done a couple of DC books and a Dark Horse comic, but this will be the first time he’s getting a check from Disney to write a comic for Marvel.
Solo #2 variant cover is an ode to Rob Liefeld’s New Mutants #93 (1990). Right? It sure looks that way.

Deathstroke #6 sees the reemergence of Jericho. The last time we saw him was in Convergence New Teen Titans #1. Right? Anyways, one of our favorite books over the years that we pushed was (and still is) Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984). Not only the first appearance of Jericho, but the first Nightwing (Dick Grayson) and the origin of Deathstroke. All done by the legendary George Perez. What a fantastic book.
DC introduces a brand new character in her own series. Check out Mother Panic #1 by writer Jody Houser and artist Tommy Lee Edwards. The Bengal cover is great, as is the Tommy Lee Edwards Batman cover. Batman appears on two of the four covers.
Detective Comics #944 continues the introduction of new characters.

Readers know how much love we show to show to artist JOCK whenever we have a chance. Check out the All-Star Batman #4 cover. Here are some other eye catching comic covers this week; Batgirl and The Birds of Prey #4 cover by Yanick Paquette. Both Superwoman #4 covers. One by Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy and the other from Ben Oliver. Writer Phil Jimenez continues to bring it each month on this title.

Image Comics’ Violent Love #1 has the makings of a film studio scooping it up. Two bad as* bank robbers from different parts, fall in love. Writer Frank J Barbiere and artist Victor Santos bring us this double sized issue for only $3.99. Both the A and B covers rock as well.

Indie Comics…….
Black Mask Comics hit a nerve and a home run with fans regarding the release of Black #1. An extremely well done book referencing the constant struggle from within the confines of America and its racial undertones. The second issue will probably cause a stir within the comic community as well as other media outlets. The cover of Black #2 will probably be the reason for this. Maybe this comic (and cover) will make news media turn their heads and eyes, then their mouths will talk about it. Also from Black Mask Comics this week; Forevers #2.
This week’s indie hit comic will be Terminarch one shot from OSSM Comics. Artist at war is the premise here. Literally, artist fight in a war against alien beings that sparred them after destroying everyone on earth, but them. Everything is kind of okay, but things turn around as the artist fight back. This comic is sold out on the distributor level.

The new Adam Hughes Betty and Veronica series seems to be hitting a chord with comic fans. We did our press runs at San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con and there were lots of fans talking and gathering around the Archie Comics booth to meet up with Adam. Not only because we all know he’s an awesome artist, but fans were gathering to snag up signed copies of Betty & Veronica comics. Adam is actually making a crossover regarding Betty & Veronica with fans to the likes we haven’t seen in a while. We’re talking about the “regular” comic reader with no really interest in an Archie comic. Check out Betty & Veronica #2 this Wednesday. This January, Archie is about to turn it on it’s head on CW. Check out the InvestComics Archie Comics checklist banner here and click it. Buy up those Archie books, that television series is going to be huge.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman team-up again. This time in Batman TMNT Adventures #1 (IDW).
Boom Studios has teamed with the WWE for the release of new WWE comics. First up; WWE Then Now Forever #1.
Brigands #1 (Action Lab Entertainment). Namesake #1 (Boom Studios). Galaxy For Hire #1 (Devils Due Publishing). Mummy #1 (Titan Comics).

InvestComics Hot Picks:

New Release Comics on 3/25/15 (And back issues)

CLICK any RED Link or Comic cover to Buy/Bid on comics in this article on Ebay

There are so many new speculators coming on board that every once in a while there needs to be a little reminder here on InvestComics as to how this works…..

Just want to urge any new speculators (and veterans too) here to please read the disclaimers that appear in these articles each and every week before proceeding. It’s extremely important in understanding how this weekly modern comic book speculation article works. This is mostly a modern comics speculation article that appears here each and every week. InvestComics will RARELY EVER urge anyone to hold onto a modern book for a profit. We have ALWAYS recommended to hold a Bronze, Silver and or a Golden, but a Modern comic? We want to capitalize as quickly as possible with those. Buy them, bag em’, sell em’. Sometimes this means to take a $20 profit and not a $150 one. It will happen, and that has to be acceptable to the investor. No emotional attachment, just a profit and move along. Get it on the next one. If the investor is inclined to hold onto their comic, there will most likely be a loss. Your portfolio will be in the red and it will get quite frustrating to get out of and into the black. There is absolutely nothing said just now in this paragraph that has not been addressed hundreds of times over the last 10 years InvestComics has been giving away its free speculation advice. We want fans to come here and enjoy themselves first and foremost. That’s always been the main priority. Second priority is to possibly come away with some knowledge you were not aware of when you first arrived here. Third is to possibly turn a profit on some modern books that are recommended here. And the fourth, mostly importantly here is to take that money (besides paying a bill or two – real life stuff) and reinvest in a Bronze, Silver or a Golden Age comic. That is where the true money value is within these articles for 10 years. Again, mentioned over the years here on InvestComics, nothing groundbreaking. That’s it for now on a mini update on how some of this all works.

Darth_Vader_3_InvestComics Darth_Vader_3_InvestComics_Alphra

Silk, Spider-Gwen, Ms. Marvel, She Hulk, Harley Quinn, Powergirl, Wonder Woman and the list goes on. As previously mentioned on InvestComics recently (and about 6 years ago) the female comic book character is seriously making their indelible mark as of late. That’s a fantastic thing and a long time coming too. No more in the background as a secondary character. No more eye candy for that gratuitous chest shot to sell a comic book. Although the sexy covers are still done, they have diminished a bit. The female comic character’s are in such demand for their own independence that Marvel has the A-Force #1 comic coming out to push the proverbial envelope even further. Not stating any of these moves spell for a successful campaign, but it will call for a successful marketing campaign regarding putting the female character front and center. Whether any of the attempts by either of the big two to push the strong woman as a lead will succeed depends on a simple measure. Good story telling. That’s it. Simple, but it’s the only way fans will truly pay attention to any of the movement here. Must have a compelling story. If not, it will fail. Great artwork (eye appeal) will take you so far. The artwork is the initial marketing ploy to draw the consumer eye in. Once in, there must be substance there to sustain the consumer to “stick around”. If the consumer does not connect the dots, the campaign fails. So next time you see that hot comic with “so-so” artwork going (in your opinion), realize that it’s the guts of that book (the writer) driving it home along with the artist. It’s the artist that is solidifying the writers thoughts and impacting the flow of the great story. So in essence the “team” works in tandem and a great book is born. This is all free marketing advice that most pay for in college or through other sources, but for you today….free (thanks Raf for that “free” usage line). So why all of this marketing and female character talk you ask? Well, there could be one of the hottest possible Star_Wars_Droids_2_InvestComicsspeculation comics on the planet coming out this week, so you better be on top of this one. Click this link to Darth Vader #3 and get on Ebay right away if you want to be a part of the next hot book in the aftermarket. Of course your local comic shop will probably have copies, but not for long! So best to click and buy now. The reason to seriously consider getting this comic is for a couple of reasons. The first reason is because of the introduction of a new female character named Aphra. The second is because this is the very first introduction of a any new Star Wars characters within the Marvel Universe since around 1986 when they were introducing a bunch of Droids in Star Wars Droids #2. The art and cover work features John Romita Sr. at the helm for the first five issues. That’s just way too cool isn’t it? Darth Vader #3 will probably be a big aftermarket comic because speculators will not know where Aphra will end up. Will she ever get her own title? Will she be such an in-depth character that fans will demand more? Will she be featured in one of the new Star Wars films? Maybe none of this comes to fruition. This is where most speculators get caught. In the middle. Do I sell now? Do I take a profit? What if the book goes up another $100? The simple answer, who cares? Get your profit (of your choosing) and get out. If you are so inclined to worry about getting the top dollar, buy two copies then. Stash away one and sell the other. But, by doing things like this you run a HUGE risk of having too much inventory, thus creating a negative within your portfolio over time due to the unbalance of the two sides. Too much inventory equates to loss of profit if it supersedes your sell off point of one comic. So in laments terms; If you have a Star Wars #1 variant and sold it for $250, but you have another 20 copies you spent $35 for sitting in inventory, you are actually -$450. You must now hope that the market stays hot (which it mostly does for a very short time). The numbers here are purely made up, the same goes if you buy even two variant comics at a high price or 100 or 50, etc. Sell those variants of hot modern books when you feel they are peeked. An amazing tool coming soon to help speculators with this and it’s called CMV. InvestComics has seen the inner working’s/backend of this glorious comic book speculation tool and it’s a game changer. We are working closely with CMV to be a one and one tandem so that the speculator will have a lot of knowledge within their grasp between the both sites. More on this coming, but for now check out CMV and you will see exactly what the market is doing on certain books. Now back to Darth Vader #3! A great comic to speculate on this week and is easily the top pick in this InvestComics Hot Pick article by far.

Deathstroke_6_InvestComics Deathstroke_8_InvestComics

One of InvestComics’ favorite characters since the inception of the magazine/site has been Deathstroke. We recommended the first appearance of Deathstroke when it was only about $20 at one time. We love the character and as we so often say around here, Teen Titans #2 (1980) is still in buy mode. However, this week Deathstroke seems to have some daddy issues. Check out Deathstroke #6 as his badas* looking dad comes into the mix. Slade’s father first appeared in the previous Deathstroke series; Deathstroke #8 (2012).

Batman ’66 #21 will introduce “Lord Death Man”. This might be a good pick up if you like introductions.

A couple of odd number one comics coming this Wednesday to check out. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad #1 is based on the world famous Disney ride. A comic based on a Disney ride. Yes you heard that right. Some very nice variants too with this one. Click the link, check them out. And Miami Vice Remix #1 from awesome writer Joe Casey. Based on the super hot Miami Vice television series from the 80’s. Two different comics with a lot of fun attached to them probably.

The rest of the number one comics to definitely check out this week are; the confusion of Multiversity Ultra Comics #1 and what is going on with anything pertaining to Multiversity. This number one issue is “groundbreaking” we think in a way we have no way of explaining or knowing why. Extremely confusing, but worth a mention for others to weigh in and help others out! Hit 1957 #1 from Boom Studios looks like an interesting read if you like crime stories. More girl power this week with IDW’s Jem and the Holograms #1. Written by Kelly Thompson. Might be her first comic series series work. A new team based comic from Dark Horse; Pastaways #1 by fantastic creators Matt Kindt and Scott Kolins is worth a look. Bryan J. L. Glass and Michael Avon Oeming team up once again for their latest Mice Templar offering; Mice Templar Nights End #1. We Can Never Go Home #1 from Black Mask Comics looks like a good read.

Squarriors #1 showed a lot of interest with fans. Now lets see if Squarriors #2 sustains that interest with readers.

Two sold out comics this week that will amount to nothing more than a novelty item years from now Batman and Robin #40 and Justice League Dark #40, but can be profited on IF, IF, IF one can pull this off. A few things here. A few fans said a couple of weeks ago, how do you get a premier artist like recording artist Prince to sign a comic book? How can you suggest that? The book referred to was the Batgirl Purple Rain DC movie variant. Their were other movie variants also mentioned, but this was one of the few comments sent out regarding this particular book. Here’s the thing. InvestComics suggested that IF one can SOMEHOW pull this off, maybe never, but SOMEHOW pull ANY of these movie variant covers off that we suggest, then kudos to you!! It’s all based on the fun of actually trying to get this done somehow. We never said to go to your local comic convention and get Keenu Reeves to sign your Speed variant cover. We understand he is not readily available to sign a comic book, so please do take these fun suggestions and roll with it. Do not take these in the literal sense. One more thing. A sold out comic DOES NOT equate to automatic money. Walking Dead sells out each and every month, doesn’t mean anything. Too many times, fans are under the assumption that if a book sells out, it’s worth money and a flip can ensue. Not always the case. The flip happens when demand exceeds supply or when demand wants to hoard more copies. A sold out comic means nothing in the aftermarket if there is no substance. Will you pay $600 for a Star Wars #1 variant right now? Why not? It’s sold out right? Yes sold out and plenty of copies to go around. Plus more importantly, nothing of interest for the speculator to hold onto regarding that comic on the inside. A first appearance? A death? A possible movie character? A hot new artist? Writer? None of the above here. What you do have is a good read. That in itself should be good enough. It’s ultimately up to the individual (as always) to determine what sold out comic is worth pursuing and capitalizing on. Get the book on Ebay right away and take profits on moderns. That’s some of the best advice InvestComics can offer you. If you love, you will lose. This is why tradepaper backs were created. Read those, love those.

Batman_Robin_Harry_Potter_InvestComics Justice_League_40_InvestComics

Now back to the DC movie variants this week. Get a hold of Daniel Radcliffe or Ralph Fiennes or any of the other major players in the Harry Potter movie to sign your Batman and Robin #40 book. Be sure to have that witness and get it graded. This is the only way you’ll have that one of a kind awesome comic. If you happen to run into Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin or Genna Davis, have them sign your Justice League Dark #40 comic. Same here applies; witness/graded. Michael has been a round some shows over the years so maybe that signature is feasible? Nah! Still a hard get. But fun to try!

 

Invest wisely. Read comics.

Carpe Diem.

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.
