Remember when fanboy’s had their panties in a bunch over the fact Steve Rogers ‘hailed Hydra’? As though Marvel would keep their American Icon superhero within the clutches of the dark side forever. Fanboy’s always need something to complain about. Marvel fanboy’s begin their decent back to a happier place starting on new comic book day Wednesday (4-19-17). But before going to that happy place, fanboy’s will have to endure Steve Rogers being more of a bad guy and not seeing the light just yet. The big Marvel story to set Rogers on the straight path starts with Captain America: Captain America Steve Rogers #16 and Secret Empire #0. These issues will serve as the prologues of the epic storyline ‘Secret Empire’. Enjoy the storytelling and the plight, because in the end, fanboy’s will have their Captain back and a new number one issue will follow with about 33 different variants accompanying the silliness. All that yelling and boycotting for nothing.
Marvel’s recent series; Monsters Unleased, introduced a bunch of new characters. Now Marvel restarts things with Monsters Unleashed! #1 with the new characters starting out anew. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist David Baldeon.
If you’ve been paying attention, you know by now why Venom #6 is such an anticipated issue for many Spidey fans. Eddie Brock is back as Venom. Should be interesting from here on out. This issue will sell out, especially that Gerardo Sandoval cover. Wow. Think that’ll make the InvestComics Best Comic Covers Of The Week?

InvestComics Spider-Man Checklist – Part 1 – Click Image

Invincible Iron Man #6 will introduce a new villain into the Iron Man rogue gallery.
A new Nick Fury series this Wednesday; Nick Fury #1. First appearance of Frankie Noble. Story by James Robinson and art by Aco.
A bit of controversy has set upon Ardian Syaf’s X-Men Gold #1. Marvel (Disney) obviously had no idea what Ardian was up to within the pages of their comic, but we’re almost certain that X-Men Gold #2 will be gone over with a fine-tooth comb. Which means either the second issue will be a bit delayed while they inspect it and make corrections/deletions or something will slip by again. We highly doubt anything will slip by, but fans will flock to this comic as though it will have more controversy surrounding it, which it most likely will not. Thus causing for a sold out comic for no other reason other than curiosity getting the better of most and thinking they’ll make a buck with a useless, non-controversial comic. Let’s see if X-Men Gold #2 even makes it to the shelves this week.

First Appearance Of Batwoman – ALL Available Ebay sellers – Click Image

Nightwing #19 finds Dick Grayson facing off against Deathwing. Did you know that Deathwing’s first appearance is mega-cheap? Not that there is any demand for it what so ever, but this 1991 first appearance in New Titans Annual #7 is readily available if you want it. Written by Marv Wolfman, so it’s gotta be interesting.
Superwoman #9 begins the new story ‘Super Women’. Written by Kate Perkins, with art by Stephen Segovia and Art Thibert.
Batwoman #2 introduces a villain named Knife. Writers James Tynion IV/Marguerite Bennett and art by Steve Epting.

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.

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.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

indexMarvel_Feature_1_(1971)Before heading right into this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, there are a few comics that have been highlighted over the past week or so on InvestComics that need some love. Well not love so much, but some undivided attention. I’d like to point them out in this article so that speculators can plan accordingly during a slower week like this one.

News from director Zack Synder confirmed that Nightwing (aka Dick Grayson) will in fact appear in the new Superman sequel yet unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman. Great news for the comic book fans, but not so much on the collectors/speculators side. How so you may ask? Well, Dick Grayson becomes Nightwing in Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) and the problem with this classic comic is the one thing no hobby enthusiasts likes to hear……overprint. This comic is so easily accessible it’s not even funny. While the overprint shouldn’t deter you to still own this comic (how do you not own it already??), do realize that the aftermarket will be inundated with the first appearance of Nightwing as it already is. Great comic, too bad there are too many copies are floating around. There is however a way to get a little more bang for your buck, but you should know how to do this already…..

InvestComics reported on Marvel teaming up with Netflix for their next venture onto the small screen. It involves Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage getting television shows and all leading up to a “Defenders” mini-series. How lucky can a comic book fan be these days?! A comic that must be in your collection and is a beauty is the first appearance of the Defenders team in Marvel Feature #1 (1971). There is nothing more to say……..buy this comic book!

With the recent success of the Arrow television show for the folks over at the CW station, they are once again looking at the DC catalog and have found iZombie. Zombies are hot for reasons that are obvious, but will it equate to the demise, the watering down of the genre? We’ll have izombiePreacher_1to wait and see. Until then, you already missed out by digging in the $1 bins at your local shop for the first DC/Vertigo iZombie #1 (2010) when InvestComics broke the news, so now the question is how much of a risk are you willing to take on this comic? You have two options here. Go for the first appearance of iZombie in House of Mystery Halloween Annual #1 (2009) which has sold for more than $50 on Ebay or the iZombie #1 comic that has sold for as high as $25. Big risk here because this series is no Walking Dead and the zombie genre will eventually settle down some. What if the television series craps out? Too many risk factors with this one here.

And possibly the best news to come out from television land came late last night on InvestComics. The once very hot Preacher series from DC/Vertigo will be considered for a pilot from AMC. A Preacher #1 (1995) CGC 9.8 sold yesterday on Ebay for $185. If you have this comic, I urge you to get it graded and sit on it. It’s going to be a big book. The comic series was a rousing success and there is no reason to think that the (possible) television series wouldn’t be either. Writer Garth Ennis brings his “A” game to everything he’s involved with. The highly successful Preacher series is evidence of this. IF the Preacher gets its own TV show, Preacher #1 will be a comic to own, big time.

In the “In case you missed it department”

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/30/13

[scrollGallery id=320]

Believe it or not A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #14 will lead the way this week. It’s with good reason of course. The issue finds Max Bemis conducting writing duties. Why and who is Max? Well he’s a comic book fan and is also the front man in a rock band called Say Anything. He’s also the co-singer in a band called Two Tongues. I have to admit, I have absolutely no idea who the bands are or who Max is, but the kids tell me they know him and them! So why exactly are we talking about this comic again? Oh yeah, this is Max’s first published comic book work. The last time a rock dude crossed over, all hell broke loose for a little bit. Let me remind you……Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)? Umbrella Academy? Oh yes that! You remember now. So check out A + X #14 and see if Max pulls off a keeper here.

Harley Quinn begins her quest this week in her own regular series; starting with Harley Quinn (2013) #0. We all know by now that Harley first appeared in the Batman: Harley Quinn (1999) soft cover graphic novel. That classic Alex Ross cover is forever etched in our minds. So that comic is probably already filed away in your Bat box someplace. This week however, the Harley Quinn #0 Stephane Roux variant cover is sold out. Buying this comic will set you back $30, but how long can Harley really hold her own though? Maybe we’ll get an answer to that question sooner rather than later.

Battlestar Galactica always seems to be that red-headed step child doesn’t it? (No offense to red-heads! My sister is a red-head!). It’s always been that show that just can’t seem to get out of its own way. The first television series back in 1978 lasted two seasons, the second series lasted a whopping 4 seasons, and the original Marvel Comics series lasted 23 issues. No major motion picture, no talks of ever taking Battlestar to another level. Very odd no? Well maybe not. Maybe it’s just not a strong franchise. Yes, maybe it’s time to accept that Battlestar is not Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Stargate; Space 1999 maybe, but not any of the aforementioned. The intention here is not to bash Battlestar, but to find an understanding as to why so many failed attempts at a space series that has such a huge following. Dynamite hasn’t given up on BG though! This week Battlestar Galactica Starbuck (2013 Dynamite) #1 is on the cusp of a sell-out. That’s right fans, there is still a core audience that demands BG and Dynamite is here to provide it! Looks like a fun read!

Forever Evil Rogues Rebellion (2013) #2 variant is sold out. It’s only a $10 variant and it’ll probably stay put right there. There is nothing special about this comic at all except an exceptionally weak villain in Parasite wreaking havoc. A fun story, but nothing for the speculator here.

Although Superior Spider-Man (2012) Annual #1 might be sold out by the next new comic book day, it still has that “Annual” stigma attached to it. The Marvel solict  says “this one counts!” Even they realize the stigma attached. It’s far and few between that any comic book annuals make an impact on the hobby. They do exist, but not on a level of any expectations that collectors clamor for. In the Superior Spider-Man annual #1 though, we see the return of Blackout. The Blackout villain first appeared in Nova #19 (1978). Will the debut of Blackout be a draw? Most likely no, but the Nova character on the other hand………buy Nova. Yes, buy Nova.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #7 brings back an old foe. Lady Deathstrike from Daredevil #197 (1983). That’s a nice book to have. Not a be all end all, but an okay book.

If you have children then you know about Ben 10. You know that Ben 10 is on your television set when you are getting the kids ready for school. Yes I get the explanation every morning on which alien Ben has turned into and what he can do. Fun times! IDW wants my boy to read comics too, which is a great thing. Check out Ben 10 (2013 IDW) #1 this week for your kids. Get them reading! DC Comics were the first to jump into the Ben 10 craze and now IDW is doing the same. Good times!

A few weeks back InvestComics asked that you’d get a beat on the Afterlife with Archie #1 comic. Boy did we hit that one! This week the initial offering of Afterlife With Archie (2013) #2 will be a bit different. It seems as though the zombiefied Archie interest has died down a tad quickly, but do not let this deter you from getting the second issue. There is still might be “life” in this zombie Archie.

If there is THE number one comic to get this week, it has to be Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #1. Check out why our girl Zoey hasn’t killed anyone in about 72 days. She’s a radio DJ too. Not much to go on right? Well it’s an Image Comic, they release great stories AND it’s sold out already.

Cataclysm Ultimates (2013) #1 $20 variant is sold out. Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Force War (2013) #1 will be one to check out and one more for the kids Scooby-Doo Team Up (2013 DC) #1!

Don’t forget, help us get to 3000 and you could win!!

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!!

THE TITANS gear up for “THE METHUSELAH IMPERATIVE”

Over on DC’s THE SOURCE blog, TITANS writer Eric Wallace discussed the new storyline, THE METHUSELAH IMPERATIVE, that begins in TITANS ANNUAL #1 and heads to the main series as of issue 37.

According to WALLACE (and the covers) we’ll see the JLA, witness how ROY HARPER’s encounter with DICK GRAYSON helps or hurts his chances at redemption, and see a shift in OSIRIS and ISIS’ relationship as Osiris continues his quest to restore BLACK ADAM. Plus, we’ll see the story fans have been waiting for, as the original ATOM, Ray Palmer, finally catches up with the team that killed RYAN CHOI, the new, now late, Atom. Here’s some of what Wallace had to say:

First of all, this is our biggest story yet since Deathstroke took over the team. Some of the action in the TITANS ANNUAL (part one of “The Methuselah Imperative”) is pretty intense. Readers are going to love when they see what artist Cliff Richards has accomplished. The only way to describe it is “epic.” It’s exactly why we all love it when big superhero teams like the JLA meet up with a group of nasty villains like our current roster of Titans. You just know carnage will ensue.
