Weapon X #8

A possible introduction of a new villain in Dark Nights Metal #2. Maybe it’s just the Court of Owls? That Andy Kubert cover says this….Either way, still a great story thus far.
Mr. Oz reveals his identity in Action Comics #987 (Dan Jurgens & Viktor Bogdanovic). Part one of ‘The Oz Effect’. Two covers (Nick Bradshaw), the lenticular and non-lenticular are equally on point. Although ‘Mr. Oz’ will give readers the big ‘reveal’ he will turn out to be a character from long ago, but his first appearance as ‘Mr. Oz’ is in Superman #32 (2011).
The new Harley Quinn comic this week has a nice little reason for a collector to pick it up. Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special #1 celebrates….well the 25th year of her existence. Duh, but that’s not the reason this books cracks into the Hot Picks this week. DC Comics informs the fans that there will be creators all over this comic that have never worked on the Harley Quinn character before. Lots of first Harley work to check out, but from whom? Find out on Wednesday.
A villain named Bloodwork makes his (its) first appearance in Flash #30. Creative team; Joshua Williamson & Neil Googe.
Midtown Comics is limiting customers to only one copy per; Supergirl #13 – Stanley Artgerm Lau variant. Why the mention? Well, it’s a regular priced variant cover, so what’s up with that? And it’s going for almost double its cover price already in the aftermarket. Great cover though!

Buy/Bid – Dark Metal #2

Buy/Bid – Flash #30

Buy/Bid – Harley 25th #1

Buy/Bid – Venomverse #2










Marvel’s Generation comics continue, with two captains; Generations Captain Marvel & Captain Mar-Vell #1. Creators: Margaret Stohl & Brent Schoonover.
The Runaways television show will be arriving soon and Marvel Comics will be there to cash in with a new Runaways series. Runaways #1 will be the series’ fifth volume.

The new Weapon H character is still wet behind the ears and he’s already receiving a Venomized cover; Weapon X #8 by Greg Land. Oh yes, it’s sold out already.

Venomverse #2 features Venom vs Poison Spider-Man. This is full of awesome as is this Venomverse series/event.

We here at InvestComics had a chance recently to speak with Carol Zara. Carol and Eric Barnett released their comic last week and it’s called Alien Toilet Monsters #1. The reviews are in and nothing but good things are being said here. This comic is not a typical toilet humor type comic, it’s an actual story that involves aliens, guns and a bad as* girl at the helm. This awesomely fun comic is only available at certain comic conventions the ATM crew will be attending. It’s also available if you ask your comic store to order directly from them. The Alien Toilet Monsters site can be seen by clicking right HERE. ATM have their social media pages in tow as well. Follow Carol Zara on Facebook and Instagram as she keeps things updated on a regular basis on what’s what with ATM.

Here is a recap image video of our visit to San Diego Comic Con 2016.




NEW YORK, NY – June 29th, 2011 – Bantam Books, an imprint of the Random House Publishing Group, announced today Alex Ross and Mike S. Miller as the cover artists for the comic adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series.

The series will be illustrated by Tommy Patterson and adapted and scripted by Daniel Abraham, the award-winning and bestselling author of The Long Price Quartet.  The first issue of the monthly comic-which will be published by Dynamite Entertainment-is planned to release in September 2011, with compilations of the comics in graphic novel form to follow under the Bantam imprint.

“It has been fifteen years since I first edited A GAME OF THRONES, and it is a genuine joy to be revisiting and adapting this landmark novel into a format that suits it so perfectly,” says Senior Editor at Random House Anne Groell.  “George’s writing has always been highly visual, painting rich, detailed and striking images in the reader’s minds and hearts.  And now seeing such a talented group of artists bringing that so vividly to life is truly exciting.  I couldn’t be more pleased with everything I have seen so far–and I can’t wait for what is yet to come!”

“It’s a real privilege and a treat to be involved with reinterpreting Game of Thrones,” says writer Daniel Abraham.  “It’s a brilliant piece of work, and watching the strength of that story come into a visual medium is fantastic.”

“George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones is the best book series I’ve ever read,” says cover artist Mike Miller.  “Not just in the fantasy genre, but in ANY genre.  Just as I hear people saying Game of Thrones is the best series on TV, I’m sure they’ll be saying the same about the comic book.  You can’t find a better writer anywhere than George, and I was very excited to get the opportunity to draw covers for the comic book adaptation.”

Game of Thrones began airing on HBO in April 2011, and quickly became one of the highest rated, and critically acclaimed show of the year, with a 2nd season commitment by HBO following the airing of the first episode. The season finale was the highest rated episode of the season, showing the strength of the series.  The comics and graphic novels will further expand the Game of Thrones series into a new medium, creating opportunities for readers old and new to immerse themselves in this bestselling world.


GEORGE R. R. MARTIN sold his first story in 1971 and hasn’t stopped. As a writer-producer, he worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made. In the mid-90s he returned to prose and began work on A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. He lives with the lovely Parris.

ALEX ROSS is known for his realistic human depictions of classic comic book characters.  Alex has graced the pages of his premiere Marvel Comics work Marvels with Kurt Busiek and Kingdom Come with Mark Waid. Between 1998 and 2003, writer Paul Dini and Ross produced annual tabloid-sized editions celebrating the 60th anniversaries of DC Comics’ Superman: Peace on Earth, Batman: War on Crime, Shazam: Power of Hope, and Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth, as well as two specials featuring the Justice League: Secret Origins and Justice League: Liberty and Justice. Ross’ awards include a 1997 Will Eisner Award for the limited series Kingdom Come (with Mark Waid) and a 1998 National Cartoonists Society Comic Book Award for Superman: Peace on Earth. Alex Ross is heavily involved with many Dynamite Entertainment projects and is currently reuniting with Kurt Busiek for Dynamite’s Kirby: Genesis!

MIKE S. MILLER is a longtime artist for many comic publishing companies including Marvel, DC, and Image, Mike S. Miller is most known for his work on the comic book adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s Hedge Knight series, Robert Jordan’s New Spring as well as his work on DC’s JLA and Adventures of Superman. Miller created and wrote The Imaginaries, which was published by Image Comics before starting his own publishing company, Alias Enterprises, to publish the series, among others. The series is returning through Darren Davis’s Bluewater Productions. In 2008, the option to his comic book series ‘Deal with the Devil’ was sold to Lionsgate Films, although no work on the project has been announced. Miller currently draws a pair of established webcomics on his site Comicstripclub: Electronic Tigers, a slice-of-life gaming webcomic, and RLC (Right Left Center), a political cartoon series with a conservative viewpoint.

DANIEL ABRAHAM is the author of ten books and more than thirty short stories.  He has been nominated for the Hugo, the Nebula, and the World Fantasy awards, and won the International Horror Guild Award.  He has written the graphic novel adaptations of George R. R. Martin’s novel Fevre Dream and novella “Skin Trade,” and original scripts for Wild Cards: The Hard Call.  He also writes as MLN Hanover and James S. A. Corey.  He lives with his family in the American southwest.

Artist TOMMY PATTERSON’S credits include Farscape for Boom! Studios, the movie adaptation The Warriors for Dynamite Entertainment, and Tales From Wonderland the White Knight, Red Rose and Stingers from Zenescope Entertainment. He has a BS in Studio Art and also works as a graphic designer.  Patterson lives in Western Kentucky with his wife and daughter.


Long ago, in a time long forgotten, a mysterious event threw the seasons of the world out of balance.  Now the kingdom is blessed by golden summers that go on for years, and cursed by cruel winters that can last a generation.  In the cool north of this kingdom is a royal family ruled by Eddard Stark.  The symbol of the royal house of the Starks is a direwolf; their motto is “Winter is coming.” As indeed, it is.  For the Iron Throne of Westeros is once more under contention.  With Eddard’s help, Robert Baratheon won it away from the corrupt Targaryens, who had ruled Westeros for generations.  But when Eddard is summoned south to help an aging king hold the throne they both won, he finds himself enmeshed in a web of treachery and lies, as faction after faction plays that most dangerous game of all: the game of thrones.
