X-Men #25

Click To Buy Now

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: Uncanny X-Men #25 1966 (Graded 7.5). This comic is from the original X-Men series of the early 1960’s. The 25th issue from the original series graded at a nice 7.5 for only $95 and FREE shipping. A Jack Kirby cover and the introduction of El Tigre. A fantastic Silver Age graded comic at an affordable price. And FREE shipping. Good deal.

Gotta love that new Gwenpool #2 cover. DC Comics gives fans a parody character of Deadpool a few weeks back; Red Tool. Now Marvel has this cover of Gwenpool on the cover resembling a certain DC character that welds a big hammer most of the time. Sometimes a baseball bat or whatever she can really get her hands on, but preferably that really BIG hammer is usually her “go-to”. Make of the cover what you will, but that sure does look like that DC girl. One more thing, the Gwenpool #2 Reilly Brown incentive cover is sold out.

Marvel Comics introduces yet another character on one of their covers. Seems like a trend now each week doesn’t it? Boy they market so well, catering to the comic collector. Silk #8 will feature Silk The Worthy (Silk as Thor). May never amount to anything, but the thing is, they seem to nail awesome looking characters! Create the character, the demand may come, a follow up on making the character a part of the actual Marvel Universe and there you have it, an introduction on a comic cover.

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

Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates of the new Black Panther series will probably make readers realize that his particular take on this character is unlike anything they’ve ever read before. Black Panther #2 comes out on Wednesday and will prove this point even more so. The Midnight Angels make an appearance to stir things up a bit. The Midnight Angels first appeared way back in 2010’s Doomwar #5, a comic that features lots of guest spots including Deadpool. And Black Panther, of course. Marvel’s new Apocalypse variant covers are killing it too these past couple of weeks. The Apocalypse Black Panther #2 variant is proof of this.
….And Dale Keown’s Guardians Of The Galaxy #8 Apocalypse cover is ridiculously wonderful.

Web Warriors #7 features a character we told you about a while back. We wrote about the possible breakout of this character someday. Well, maybe the time has come now. Spider-Punk makes his way back into the pages of a Spidey related book. Spider-Punk first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #10 (2015). You already knew this because you follow InvestComics and realize we are the best thing since sliced bread. Maybe sliced comics. No, no, don’t slice your comics, not good.

Marvel will introduce Grant Ward into the Marvel Universe this week. See that happen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #5.
Staying on topic of introducing characters in the Marvel Universe, take a look at All New All Different Avengers #9. This issue will introduce the All new Wasp! The regular and variant Alex Ross covers kick as*.
Venom Space Knight #7 may introduce a new foe. Or it features more depth on a newer character. Check this one out to reaffirm.
Another week, and more Star Wars comics to read! Darth Vader #20 begins a new story arc and begins a backup story with Triple-Zero and Beetee.

There are many DC covers paying homage to their own series this Wednesday. With many issues hitting that proverbial 52nd issue, DC will regurgitate the covers from it’s premiere issue in its own series with issue number 52. It all seems so contrived at this point with the New 52 in so many ways. Homage to a number one issue from 51 issues ago? Really?? Okay.

Learn more about the new character Harley Sinn introduced in Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #1 in this week’s Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #2.
Check out a major status quo change in Selina’s life coming up in Catwoman #52.
Fans could possibly witness the death of Superman this week. Again. Who cares? It’s all in good fun storytelling. Check out Action Comics #52 as Superman from pre-New 52 meets up with the current Superman. Only one may survive.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 8/12/15

 

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.

 

A potentially light week as far as the speculation side goes, plenty of great reading ahead. Although there is one speculation comic that will make up for the entire week this Wednesday…..

There will not be a bigger book this week. Batman #43 is where it’s at. Guarantee it. No way. Scott Synder and Greg Capullo introduce a new villain into Batman’s life this Wednesday, Mr. Bloom. We all know what happens when these two creative minds get together within these pages right? The villain is right there on the cover too. No cameo, little panel, a hand, no this dude is right there in plain sight. Although there are two other variants, the Mr. Bloom cover makes for an attractive collectors piece. He only graces the regular cover and not the others. A better resell with the character on the cover like that. Bottom line here, Mr. Bloom will be blooming in the aftermarket on Wednesday and thereafter. A seriously big book this week.

Superman may have the same scenario brewing. DC says Superman faces a new threat lurking in the shadows in Action Comics #43. Let’s all read and find out who or what it is. And the same holds for Starfire #3. A new character appearance could be in here. The Darwyn Cooke variant is sold out too. Another sold out Darwyn Cooke variant comic this week; Justice League Gods and Monsters #1.

Comic fans get a first this week. Adam.3 #1 will be the first for creator Scott Kolins. A first in his very own creator owned character starring in a new series. Thanks to Dark Horse this is happening. Comic fans win! Be sure to check it out and support Scott. He’s a cool dude.

Independent publisher Action Lab Entertainment making some noise this Wednesday. Archon Battle of the Dragon #1 and F1rst Hero Fight For Your Life #1 are both sold out. Speaking of sold out, but not sold out….YET, From Titan Comics, Doctor Who Event 2015 Four Doctors #1. Doctor Who fans will be all over this.

There will be no shortage of number one comics to check on this week. Two very good stories await us from IDW; String Divers #1 and Boy-1 #1. From Image Comics Beauty #1 and Phonogram The Immaterial Girl #1. Beauty #1 will have a promo package sent to retailers. It will contain a pamphlet and a condom. Yes, you read that right. Click the red link or comic cover and see what those packages are selling for. Sheesh. Yankee #1 is not a baseball story, rather a unique story from Alternative ComicsGuardian Knight Comics‘ Gears And Bones #1Americatown #1 from Boom Studios, Dark Horse’s King Tiger #1, and rounding out the InvestComics Hot Picks week is DC’s DC Comics Bombshells #1.

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.

Click on the RED links or comic covers to Buy/Bid. A new window will open, you will not lose your place.

Twilight Zone #84 (1978) The first professional work from Frank Miller.

Weird War Tales #64 (1978) First DC Comics work.

John Carter Warlord of Mars #18 (1978) First Marvel Comics work with writer Chris Claremont. John Byrne cover.

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man #27 (1979) First Daredevil pencils. Miller will go on to basically own the Daredevil character. Most of anything you will ever see on film or on television on Daredevil is based from Miller’s interpretation of the character.

Daredevil #158 (1979) Miller’s first time on the Daredevil title will prove to be a major turning point in this characters life. The character is forever marked with the Miller touch.

Marvel Premiere #49 (1979) Miller/Janson cover. Falcon graces the cover and this is also Falcon’s first solo comic ever.

Daredevil #177 (1981) Miller writes Daredevil’s origin. Retold.

Daredevil #178 (1982) First team-up with Power Man and Iron Fist. Will this equate to box office money because of the possibility of a Netflix team-up? Maybe. Still a great book to have regardless.

Marvel Team-Up Annual #4 (1981) Miller writes a story that includes Moon Knight. He also does the cover art with Rubinstein that includes Moon Knight.

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.

Batman The Dark Knight Returns (1986) Here is another turning point for a character because of Frank Miller. This comic changed the course of history for Batman as we know it. 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.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 10/15/14

The InvestComics team is fresh back from the New York Comic Con 2014. This was our first time ever facilitating for the awesome grading company CBCS. It was fantastic. Many cool variants, old comics, and lots of Synder autographs were requested. All and all a great experience and we look forward to serving everyone’s needs at future shows.

If you follow us on any of the major social outlets we are on, you would have seen some great coverage of the show. As usual we will be combining a lot of the pictures to give fans a collage in a video form. That will be coming soon.

Thanks to the InvestComics team Rafael Rosario and Chico. An amazing duo that pursues above and beyond…..cannot not explain the gratefulness to them in words, but thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Let’s jump into the InvestComics Hot Picks. Comics are due out tomorrow……

One thing was most certain at this year’s New York Comic Con and that is that 215 Ink has a hit on their hands. The Enormous NYCC variant was nowhere to be found 30 minutes into the show. The next day was no better. Bottom line here, the Enormous comic is making some noise and this week Enormous (2014) Ongoing #4 is hitting the shelf with a sold out sign on it. This means if you see any on the new comic book wall at your shop, once that spot is empty; it’s empty until a second printing comes along. The hit series continues to sell out, so you may want to be on top of it early before it’s 20 issues in and the early issues command too much money.

Another comic that continues to sell out is Cutter. Cutter (2014 Image) #3 is gone at the distributor. Be on top of this too.

[scrollGallery id=375]

The video game industry is an industry that pulls in billions upon billions of dollars per year. What if you put out a comic book that consist of one of the biggest video game money makers in history?…. A  2 billion dollar franchise? Well IDW are taking their chance with Skylanders (2014 IDW) #1. What will this comic present in the spec market? Maybe not much, maybe something, who knows? What we do know is that the Skylanders franchise has pulled in some seriously crazy money, oh and the subscription release is sold out. Will the popularity leak into the comic book form? Will the demand be there and drive prices up in the aftermarket? You’ll have to take a chance with this one. A $3.99 gamble, your call.

Week after week I consistently remind collectors that the Spider-Verse  storyline is one to keep an eye on. There are a tremendous amount of new characters being introduced and this week is no different. Check out Edge of Spider-Verse (2014 Marvel) #5 with Sp//dr. Looks like Spider-Man has gone Anime. One of these new Spidey’s will break out in a big way and you’ll be kicking yourself for it.

Speaking of Spider-Man. Did you see the cover to Spider-Man 2099 (2014) #5? Wow that is nice!

The ever so popular Quantum and Woody from Valiant return with an almost sold out number one issue. Be sure to check out Q2 Return of Quantum And Woody (2014 Valiant) #1. 2058770A few variants are available with the new release.

The Deadpool photobomb cover of Hulk (2014 2nd Series) #7 is sold out. A classic homage cover to Todd McFarlane’s Incredible Hulk #340.

And staying on topic with Wolverine, Wolverine and the X-Men (2014) #10 will lay Logan to rest in a big way. A big way meaning there will be many artist contributing to this issue. Always good to get these types of comics because a first professional work always slips in. Or a first work on a character that the artist could go on to dominate later on in their career.

Last of the Wolverine books to check out this week would be Death of Wolverine Logan Legacy (2014) #1. This comic has some of the best Wolverine rouge gallery ever featured in it. Looks like a fun read if anything. Only a 7 issue run here.

By “killing off” one of the most overused characters in the Marvel Universe, he gets replaced by Deadpool. This Wednesday we are treated with a new number one issue pertaining to Deadpool. This time it’s Deadpool’s Art of War (2014) #1. Aftermarket draw? Not too sure here, but just some Deadpool reading by none other than Peter David!

Doctor Who fans rejoice. A new number one comic heads your way on new comic book day; Doctor Who The Twelfth Doctor (2014 Titan) #1. Better hurry though because it looks like it’s almost sold out.

That’s it for this week. Thank you all for the well wishes. See you next week.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 2)

 THE COMIC BROKER’S REPORT – September 2014 pt. 2

Reaction to this month’s article has been about as hot as my sister skinny dipping with a recently diagnosed thyroid problem.  To make up for that I have decided to add some extra selections for this month.  An update would have sufficed but it ballooned with a bunch of new pics and since become a part 2.  Some of these may have already been spotlighted by others on the web and if that it true then those author’s are by far much better than me and should receive emails from any reader telling them so!  Enjoy your Labor day weekend folks!

The Pulse 11,13

2212905-pulse10a27037_20060127112108_large

With A Jessica Jones show coming up on Netflix how long before Danielle Cage makes an appearance?

The Flash: Iron Heights

Girder is an obscure DC villain who first appeared in The Flash: Iron Heights, an excellent prestige format book by industry greats Johns and Ethan Van Sciver.  The character has been cast to appear in the upcoming Flash TV show.

33670_20061108004250_large

Flashpoint 1 2011

Farooq/Blackout is an even more obscure character than Girder.  Though he appears first in the well printed/underwhelming Flashpoint 1 (also by Johns ) the issue is rare depending on which version you seek out.

Sketch variant, third printing, George Perez variant, SDCC and Canadian Expo edition

 Tales of Suspense 59 ( First Appearance Jarvis )

Jarvis will be cast for the Agent Carter show.  The famous butler to heroes first appeared in this classic series from Marvel.

15945_20051209163234_large

Doctor Who Weekly 17 ( First appearance of Abslom  Daak )

Fan favorite and Dalek Killer, Abslom Daak could finally be appearing on screen.  His first appearance is really going to be tough to find in high grade though.

3412_20051122165926_large

The Avengers 167 ( First appearance of Carina )

22628_20060115204329_large

In the comics she’s The Collector’s daughter but if you’ve see the GOTG film then you know that she’s not to happy with her position.  It’s great little role by an unknown.

The Flash 245 ( First appearance of the Floronic Man )

Del Toro’s Justice League Dark is going to feature many of DC’s best characters who deal in magic and mysticism.  The legendary director  has expressed a desire to include The Floronic Man.  This is his first appearance.

74712_20061219231636_large

Note:  The Floronic man appears in The Atom 1 but he does not become the Floronic Man until this Flash issue.

Secret Six 7 ( first appearance of Komodo )

163826_20090305060803_large

Arrow is looking to feature a ton of DC characters in the upcoming season including Komodo!

The Flash Volume 2 Issue 28  ( First Linda Park )

1076829

Green Arrow 17 variant ( First Komodo DC new 52 )

This variant is going to be the one to collectors will want.  It also features Jeff Lemire’s writing debut for Arrow and that’s enough to make this reader buy!   Simon Lacroix is an expert archer in his own right and may turn out to be one of the more exciting TV characters if he is adapted well from the source material.

2856342-screen_shot_2013_02_06_at_6.25.30_am

The Eternals 7 ( First appearance Eson the Searcher )

One of the more obscure appearances ( and my personal favorite! ) from the GOTG film!

index

Hulk vs. Iron Man 2  ( First Extremis Hulk )

first extremis hulk

Captain Atom ( First General Wade Eiling )

The General is rumored to play a significant role on Arrow!  This one may not see much in the way of market gains based on a higher print run but for fans of Arrow it’s a must own and can probably be found in a dollar bin.

first general wade eiling

Peter Parker, Spider-Ham 12 ( First Galactypus )

pps 12 first galactypus

If you haven’t been reading Ultimate FF then you need to start right after you finish reading this.

Superman Day of Doom 1 of 4

superman-day-of-doom-1

Man I sure hate mini -series and not because of the format.  For some reason collector’s frown upon them especially modern  buyers and sellers.  In this cases fans of the upcoming Gotham show and the Gotham Central comic should want this one.

Welcome to the InvestComics Comic Hot Picks for comic releases on 8-15-12

One comic you should definitely look out for on the new comic shelf this week is Michael Avon Oeming’s The Victories #1. An absolute “gimme” here as an InvestComics Hot Pick. Will this comic sell out quickly? Yes. See a second print? Yes. Does the main character look remarkably like a character that has been around for quite some time? Yes, but we will get past that when reading this book….right?

Marvel Comics makes a couple of promises this week (as they do often, but who’s paying attention?).  Amazing Spider-Man #691 is a MUST GET issue according to Marvel because it’s leading up to that number 700 issue. Marvel says that you will regret not buying this comic now because it’s going to mean so much later. Okay so you reeled us in, thanks Marvel! More Marvel Comics promises lie within the pages of Avengers #29. The promise here is to witness a “tie-in experience like you have never seen before!” What does this mean exactly?? Oh well, guess we’ll have to pick this up and see.

Marvel Comics are in pairs this week. Two promises, now two first appearances. Captain Marvel #2 introduces The Banshee Squadron while Daredevil #17 introduces the villain Coyote. You think Coyote is that old Epic character McFarlane drew? If you remember that, you’re showing your age. Wait a sec….

DC Comics Presents #12 introduces Kid Flash. The Kid’s first appearance is in Flash #110. DC’s Before Watchmen continues with Rorschach #1. And of course Rorschach’s first appearance is in the Watchmen #1. 

IDW goes back to the vaults and collects Dave Gibbons’ old Doctor Who comics in Doctor Who Dave Gibbons Treasury Edition #1. This is very neat for Dave Gibbons fans and Doctor Who enthusiasts alike. If you’d like to search for those original comic books from the legend, check out his first Doctor Who book from 1979’s Doctor Who Magazine #1.

IDW continues with their vault visits with Classic Popeye #1, collecting the original Popeye comics from 1948. It’s funny how IDW didn’t change a thing regarding the original number one cover to the reprinted edition, all but changing 2 things. But one fact that is not going to change is that the 1948 Popeye #1 is around $600.

Number one independent comics are aplenty this week. Homecoming #1 from Aspen Comics. A creation from the late Michael Turner. The Adventures of a Comic Con Girl from Antarctic Comics looks like a fun read. Dan The Unharmable #1 is from the awesome creative mind of award winning David Lampham. And finally from Arcana, check out Curse of the Cortes Stone #1.

A quick little going away note here…..

Bob Heske, screenwriter, author and of Heske Horror AND major contributor to InvestComics has a movie project in the works. It’s called Blessid. The IndieGogo project needs some funding and has some major talent attached to the project. Reader’s can find a fantastic interview right HERE with the Director Rob Fitz. Check out more information on this fabulous project with the full cast right HERE. Contribute as little as $10 to get this project off the ground!

That’s it for this week fans! Be sure to scroll through the InvestComics Covers of the week below! What covers do you think should have made the cut? Let’s hear it!

Invest wisely.

THE CAST OF DOCTOR WHO IS GETTING THE BLUEWATER BIO-COMIC TREATMENT

THE CAST OF DOCTOR WHO IS GETTING THE BLUEWATER BIO-COMIC TREATMENT

Long before the Enterprise traveled to the stars or Luke Skywalker was a gleam in the eye of Darth Vader, a thief with two hearts stole a time machine and traveled the universe several times over and saved the lives of
countless billions. Now as the British science fiction show, ³Doctor Who,² celebrates its fast approaching 50th anniversary, Bluewater Comics is sharing their latest bio-comic ³Orbit: The Cast of Doctor Who² with readers
in January 2012.

³Orbit: The Cast of Doctor Who² will come in both a graphic novel and single-issue form. Written by, Paul Salamoff and drawn by Jaime Martinez Rodriguez, Scott Boyce and DJ Burgess with covers by DC artist Joe Phillips.

³Doctor Who² debuted on the BBC in 1963 and was played by William Hartnell. When Hartnell decided to leave the role, it was then decided the Doctor could regenerate his appearance into another actor. Since then, over 11
actors have played the Doctor such as Tom Baker , Paul McGann and the current Doctor, Matt Smith and each will be featured in both versions of ³Orbit: The Cast of Doctor Who.² However, the graphic novel will feature a
bio on Peter Cushing who played the Doctor in two feature length movies, though he is not considered part of the 11 official actors, Bluewater wanted to mark his contribution.

³At Bluewater Comics we felt that a show like Doctor Who needed to have a bio-comic done,² said Darren Davis, president of Bluewater Comics. ³There were so many fine actors who played the role of the time traveler, we just wanted to highlight the careers of a handful of the actors.²

Writer Paul J. Salamoff said he has adored ³Doctor Who² since he was a child. ³I have been obsessed with ŒDoctor Who¹ for as long as I can remember,² said Salamoff. ³My office is literally filled with ŒDoctor Who¹
Toys, Books, DVD’s and Daleks. Lots of Daleks!²

Salamoff said writers could continue telling stories about the Doctor for another 50 years. “I find that the possibilities with the character are endless and the stories touch on every aspect of science fiction that I
love,² said Salamoff.

The ³Orbit² series was launched earlier in 2010 that serves a pop culture companion to Bluewater Comics successful ³Female Force,² ³Political Power² and ³Fame² series. The bio-comic allows Bluewater to delve into the history of certain newsworthy entertainers and explains how a person has achieved the level of office in the government.

Bluewater Comics biography comic book series has been featured on CNN, The Today Show, TV Guide, USA Today, People Magazine as well as thousands of other places. This issue will sell out fast, so make sure you pre-order it.
