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.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 7/15/15

Click on any RED link or comic cover in the article to buy/bid on the comic right now. A new page will open, so you will not lose your place here.

 

Another slow week for the speculator. This means, as it always does, time to hit those bins hard, and scour the walls at your local shop for that gem.

Not too much coming out of a relatively quiet Thursday from the San Diego Comic Con. A couple of things; DC’s Vertigo imprint announced 12 new titles coming this fall, Hasbro’s Stormtrooper figure (the black series) caused near riots, and Image’s Invincible should have a video game/cartoon or something going by next year. Click the red link to buy the first full appearance of Invincible right now. We await several things from SDCC 2015. A possible full trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a look at the Justice League team together, plus a surprise was announced that includes Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Image Comics’ Outcast trailer, Marvel news, Valiant Entertainment news, and whatever else we aren’t expecting! Be sure to stick with the InvestComics social media for possible tidbits on some key comics regarding the show.

And click HERE for the full list of exclusive items for SDCC 2015. A boatload of goodies!

Harley Quinn #18 features an appearance by Captain Strong. His last known appearance was in 1986. Welcome back Captain! The neat cover here actually not only pays homage to a 1973 cover, but it also happens to be the first appearance too. Action Comics #421 (1973) is the first appearance of Captain Strong and the original cover to this weeks Harley book. Here’s the thing, a 9.6 on Ebay right now is only $200. Yes granted, we’re talking a fourth rate character, but still a better buy than a majority of these ridiculous variants at $200. InvestComics has always said to sell your moderns and buy those back issues. Well here’s your chance. A first appearance from 1973 that includes names like Curt Swan and Dick Giordano in it? 9.6 for $200 no less? A no-brainer here.

Now let’s talk about another Captain arriving this Wednesday. Check out Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1. Looks like a fun book. It’s always great to see Captain Britain in a title isn’t it? A comic InvestComics has been recommending for years now; Marvel Team-Up #65 (1978). It’s the U.S. Debut of Captain Britain. A comic written by Chris Claremont, drawn by John Byrne, and a cover from George Perez/Joe Sinnott. We recommended this comic when it was a $1 book for years. Now it seems to have climbed a bit from that $1 bid. Should have listened! Seriously though, what is not to love about this comic? And this also applies to the Defenders as well. Their first appearance; Marvel Feature #1 (1971). We recommended at $50. Should have listened!

Ant-Man Annual #1; this comic has it all really. A Hank Pym/Scott Lang team-up, a villain from the past comes back, and an introduction of a new character. Yes, this is a pick up this week.

While we eagerly await possible news coming from the Valiant Entertainment group at SDCC, we can look forward to Book of Death #1 this Wednesday. Valiant will start their all new event saga right here. Written by Robert Venditti, art by Doug Braithewaite and Robert Gill. Yes a hit for sure brewing here. Looking forward to a great read.

Here are a few more comics to check out on new comic book day; Rivers of London Body Work #1 (Titan Comics) is sold out. Godzilla In Hell #1 (IDW Publishing). Island #1 (Image Comics). Mercury Heat #1 (Avatar Press).

Creator Spotlight – Frank Miller

daredevil-184-miller

New to InvestComics? Please read the Disclaimer here before proceeding…

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.

The crazy thing about this game changer of a story was that he was writing Daredevil at the same time and killing that too! Two issues into his return to the Daredevil title came this mastery opus.

Each week InvestComics will bring a creator into the spotlight to showcase some of their key books within their career.

Walt Simonson is a legend in the circles of the comic book industry. He is one of the premiere players. An artist, an inker and a writer. The man can do it all and does it all at an extraordinary level.

His body of work could not even be justified in this article it is so vast, but InvestComics will highlight a plethora of comics in Walt’s illustrious, well known, well respected career thus far. Exclusions are bound to happen on this list, these are just some of his works. We hope you enjoy reading, gazing, buying these comics below as much as we have over the years.

*****PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER BELOW Article*****

 

Weird War Tales #10 (1973) The first professional work. A backup story. DC owns the distinct honor of discovering him. Thanks DC! Although Marvel would have eventually come along.

Sword of Sorcery #5 (1973) The first solo cover right here.

The Haunt of Horror #1 (1973) The first Marvel work came in this number one issue magazine in a backup story.

Detective Comics #437 (1973) Walt was a fantastic Batman artist/writer. This was his first Batman book, but he didn’t do the Batman character. He did another character that he would “own” and that would be the Manhunter. In a backup role here again. This is also the first appearance of the New Manhunter.

Detective Comics #443 (1974) It is here that Walt would get he first crack at the Batman character on pencils.

Master of Kung-Fu #24 (1975) This is the first official Marvel “comic book” work for Walt. He would be one of three artist on this book.

Pizzazz #10 (1977) Simonson went on to do a lot of Star Wars comics in his career. This is the first Star Wars art he ever did and it was in a magazine. This was also very early Star Wars art regarding comics. Only a few months after the number one Star Wars comic debuted, this magazine debuted. It featured different Star Wars stories in the magazine by different creators each month. Issues 10-13 were all Simonson.

Rampaging Hulk #1 (1977) Here’s the first art on the Hulk character. It was a magazine.

Young Love #125 (1977) Here is one of those that will have you scratching your head. Simonson did the cover for this romance comic.

Thor #260 (1977) Almost all creators get linked to a certain character(s) during their career. Some creators find a niche with a career and they take it to another level, thus making them “that creator” on that particular character(s) that fans relate to. This comic here is not that comic. Well, not yet anyways. Walt Simonson does not find his grove with the Thor character until six years later, but here is the first pencils and a collaborated cover (Joe Sinnott) on the Thor character. More on Thor in a bit…..

Batman #300 (1978) Here is a Batman anniversary issue Walt penciled.

Machine Man #6 (1978) Marvel finally finds Walt a solo cover to do with collaborating with anyone. Jack “King” Kirby penciled and wrote the issue.

Marvel Age #1 (1983) Why this series doesn’t get looked upon more by collectors is still an absolute wonderment to me. Crystar cover by Simonson.

Red Sonja #1 (1983) An awesome Red Sonja cover from Walt here.

Thor #337 (1983) Walt Simonson pencil/ink/writes and does the now iconic cover. It’s the first appearance of Beta Ray Bill. What more can be said about this comic that hasn’t been said yet? This was the game changer for Walt Simonson. This was THE character he owned. Walt made Thor HIS character here. There’s Kirby and the there is Simonson. Walt made Thor #337 the hottest comic on the planet back in the 80′s. It is still a book to own if you don’t already. Beta Ray Bill will eventually make it to the big screen and when he does, look out here. The iconic cover alone is enough to make collectors want it. Walt Simonson solidified himself as a creator right here. As said earlier, every creator has that character(s) that they own. Most creators also have that defining moment in their career where they catch something just right and fans begin the process of bringing them to that next level as they so fittingly deserve. This is that defining moment for Walt Simonson. Thor is Simonson’s, the fans spoke out in 1983. Walt has officially arrived.

This feature will focus on comics that no one is talking about. Sometimes for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but that said these are comics that have been long forgotten and simply not thought of anymore. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down, but isn’t that the fun of it too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red Ebay links provided in this article or comic cover if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

 

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now

Atari Force (DC 1982) – I recall getting these super cool insert comics in my new Atari game that my mother bought for me. Not only did I have a new video game, I had a mini comic to boot! 48 pages too! Are you kidding me?! Heaven. Surprising so, these inserts are not exactly that scarce on Ebay. The mini freebie comic was written by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway, crazy right? Art by long time Spidey artist Ross Andru. Cover of issue number 1 by the late Dick Giordano. Issue number 3 and 5 cover by Gil Kane?! Wait it gets better. Gil Kane penciled issue #5 (Last in the series). A failed attempt to make it a regular ongoing series in 1984 lasted only 20 issues. A John Byrne cover for a feeler Atari Force Special #1 went by the wayside. And that was that, into obscurity they went.

Cloak and Dagger (Marvel Limited Series 1983) – This one time hot commodity way back in the early 80’s is not so hot these days. It’s a sad thing too. A unique team setup and potential to translate onto the big or small screen. Maybe some studio executive will wise up and see what a fantastic brand this could be. Or maybe not. The fans back in the 80’s sure did love them some Cloak and Dagger stories though. Top to bottom great creators on this mini-series. Terry Austin, Rick Leonardi and Bill Mantlo.

Sun Devils (DC Maxi-Series 1984) – Ah the good ol’ “maxi-series”. In the 80’s, not only did the “Limited Series” rule the roost, the maxi-series did as well. This fun story was brought to us by Gerry Conway and Dan Jurgens. 12 issues and done. Last known location was in 2007.

Camelot 3000 (DC Maxi-Series 1982) – When this comic hit in 82, boy was it big. If you were an aftermarket buyer here, you paid a premium. This series was so very hot. It was one of the first DC direct market comics. Nowadays, it’s that big tumbleweed passing by your television screen when Clint is about to put a cap in someone. The most puzzling thing here has to be why DC never capitalized on bringing it back for more. The fans craved it, but it fell on deaf ears. Probably a lot has to due with artist Brian Bolland maybe? Or writer Mike W. Barr? Maybe they only wanted to work together again on this project and it never came to fruition. It doesn’t matter at this point, but what does matter is this ridiculously fabulous story. Buy this series if you do not own it yet. Amazing writing and art here, an absolute winner.

Gargoyle (Marvel Limited Series 1985) – Nothing more here than a cool story here from team member of the Defenders; Gargoyle. Writer J.M. DeMatteis and art by Mark Badger. Oh yes and issue one features a Bernie Wrightson cover. Awesome.

Foolkiller (Marvel Limited Series 1990) – This fun 10 issue limited series was from the creator of Howard the Duck; Steve Gerber. Issue number 8 featured a Spider-Man appearance and cover. A good around 10 issues here with a cool character.

X-Men and the Micronauts (Marvel Limited Series 1984) – Not that anyone has really forgotten this series, but when was the last time you heard anyone talk about it? Exactly. An all-star creative team comprised of writers Chris Claremont/Bill Mantlo and artist Jackson Guice. Covers by Guice and Bob Wiacek. This too was a hot book back in the 80’s.

Back to regular business after a 3 part Dark Knight Hot Picks special last week. Let’s get right into this week!

Michael Avon Oeming and Brain Michael Bendis first released their much beloved Image Comics Powers series in 2000. Now the powers that be (pun intended) have taken this series to its first new spinoff number one issue. Powers FBI #1. Not so much a spinoff actually, but a new title name. Either way this is quite awesome for all comic book fans and they should eat this up. Expect sellouts quickly. The Powers #1 from 2000 will cost only $12 to buy, not a bad deal at all.

Desconsecrator is causing all sorts of havoc within the pages of The Mighty Thor #17 this week. Catch this characters first appearance two issues prior in The Mighty Thor #15.

….and wrapping up Marvel here, the newest X-book X-Treme X-Men #1 debuts.

DC’s Flash #11 re-introduces fans to Heat Wave. Heat Wave first appeared within the pages of the Flash #140 back in 1963. The legend Carmine Infantino graces us with the cover to this beauty. A cool $300 gets you this first appearance.

Fans find out secret origin of Pozhar in The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #11 this week. Check out Pozhar’s debut in The Fury of Firestorm #62 from 1987. The wonderful talents of John Ostrander (writer) and the late great Dick Giordano (inks) are on this comic for only $3.   

Kid Eternity returns this week. National Comics Eternity #1 (what’s with the title?). If you’re in the market for a first “slow trending” first appearance comic, this would be the one. Hit Comics #25 from 1942 will hit your wallet for only $2000. A first appearance of a character from 1942 for only $2000? It’s not like we all don’t know who Kid Eternity is, apparently not much of a demand for the Kid. And indecently, the first post crisis Kid Eternity appears in Kid Eternity #1 from 1991. You could probably find this comic (along with The Fury of Firestorm #62) hiding out in some one dollar boxes at your local comic shop.

Batman Incorporated #3 debuts the New 52 Matches Malone. Find his first appearance in a backup story from Denny O’Neil in Batman #242 (1972). A $100 comic and a nice buy here.   

…And staying on the backup story theme here, All-Star Western #11 introduces Terrence 13 in a backup.

Superman #11 introduces fans to some sort of new alien that will be a thorn in his side for a few issues.

The Savage Hawkman #11 Introduces a villain named St. Bastion.

Image Comics’ Superman; Supreme is making a little bit of noise with his comeback. Supreme #66 comes out this week and his first appearance is in the overprinted 25 cent bins Youngblood #3 (1992). Rob Liefeld all over this comic…

Also from Image this week a new number one issue to check out; Debris #1.

Looks like Boom! Studios will try out a “Spider-Man” “Invincible” type of genre with Michael Midas Champion #1. Check it out to see if they nail it.

Mad Magazine Batman collects all of the craziness of their Batman stories in a special. If you’re a Mad fan this is for you. If you’re not a Mad fans, well you’re missing out.
