Marvel will ‘relaunch’ their Inhumans brand. Not a serious revamp or anything like that, just a way to get them back into the mix….again. Check out Inhumans Prime #1 and see where their headed. Written by Al Ewing with art by Ryan Sook.  Oh yes, the X-Men are going through the same process this week. in X-Men Prime #1. Written by Marc Guggenheim and pencils by Ken Lashley.
Remember the old oversize Marvel Treasury Edition comics back in the 70’s? Those were the best comics ever. Literally larger than life. A comic bigger than your entire head. You were able to wrap the comic around your torso if you wanted. Boy, those were fun times. We’re showing our age, but now your kids (if you have any) can experience the amazingly large panels/larger than life Marvel Treasury Edition this Wednesday; Guardians of the Galaxy All-New Marvel Treasury Edition. Collecting a bunch of Guardians stories and a new Sara Pichelli cover. Buy this, get nostalgic, share the magic with your children.
While Marvel Man-Thing fans will get their fill with the latest issue, Man-Thing #2 will feature another original R.L. Stine secondary story. That is the keepsake with these new Man-Thing comics. Unfortunately, Man-Thing will not sustain his new life offered from Marvel (unless this is a limited series, which we are not aware of), so enjoy his time here now and really enjoy the new (non-Man-Thing) stories as well.

Lobo finds his way back and into Harley’s Little Black Book #6. Comic book power couple Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner at the helm here with artist Simon Bisley.
Batgirl Annual #1 finds Supergirl and Batgirl teaming up.

Animosity #2 – After-Shock Comics has their second consecutive sell out with this title. Best see what all the ruckus is about!

Forevers #1 – A new Black Mask comic. It will probably do what every other new Black Mask comic does. Sell out. 

Norman #4 – There seems to be a trend brewing this week. This Titan Comics series has sold out since its inception (and upon our recommendations on each and every issue of course!). Look for the fourth issue to be no exception. 

Samurai Brothers In Arms #1 – Titans Comics breaks into the top 5 once again. This debut is showing some nice sales from the early onset. 

Flesh Of White #1 – Cosmic Times joins the ALL independent comic top 5 this week with their sold out comic.

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: Forever People #1 (1971) 3.5. With DC Comics making their move on the big screen towards the Justice League movie, it’s really a matter of time before we see their answer to Marvel’s Thanos. Right?? It’s inevitable that fans see Darkseid’s mug as a teaser or as an image promo. Well actually we’ll see either the back of his head or his hand first, then we’ll get the mug later on, but that’s not really important right now. What IS important is this lower grade CGC first full appearance of Darkseid for a mere $99 with FREE shipping! This low grade will command more money in the long term than it’s worth right now. An absolute BUY right here. Get it before it’s bye bye!

Entering its sixth volume this week, Doom Patrol #1. This series will be written by fan favorite Gerard Way. We all know Gerard’s story right? Here’s a quick rundown if you do not know. Gerard Way is the lead singer/musician/songwriter of a rock band named My Chemical Romance. He broke into the comic book scene as a comic book writer back in 1994. The book; On Raven’s Wings #1 was put out by Boneyard Press. It wasn’t until free comic book day 2007 when Gerard really made waves within the reader fandom. The book was Dark Horse Free Comic Book Day 2007 featuring The Umbrella Academy. Fans accepted Gerard Way as the real deal and the rest is history. Gerard wrote his first Marvel comic in 2014; Edge Of Spider-Verse #5. This issue first introduced Sp//der.

Godspeed really makes his presence known in Flash #6. He takes over the cover and he’s a bad as*. Godspeed first appeared in Flash #1 Rebirth.
The star studded Batman series is back for its second issue this week. John Romita Jr. and Scott Snyder (with various others) bring All-Star Batman #2. As if the creative firepower isn’t enough, there is another Jock variant cover. We love the Jock covers! So much so……have you seen our Creator Spotlight checklist: Jock? You should check it out, it’s filled with greatness. Click the Image below or right HERE.

Deathstroke #2 joins the comic book cover party here on InvestComics. Shane Davis gets the credit for this cover. Shane Davis has been bringing fans enjoyment since 2003’s Robin #110. He pencils this issue and happens to be his first work.
Gotham Academy returns with a new series, Gotham Academy Second Semester #1. Coming back to write is Brendan Fletcher. Looks like a new character could debut, maybe. Check it out.
Readers will find out who Ultra Woman is in Superwoman #2. And that Terry Dodson/Rachel Dodson cover is absolutely awesome.

Titan Comics’ Mega-Hit Norman comic has a regular spot here every month. InvestComics mentioned Norman #1 back a few months ago with the warning to buy before it sold out. It sold out. We mentioned to buy Norman #2 before it sold out. It sold out. We mentioned Norman #3…..well you get the idea! So Norman #4 comes out this Wednesday, follow the same advice we’ve offered prior before you’re stuck picking up a second print…again. Titan Comics also has Samurai Brothers In Arms #1 coming out this week. That one looks like a good read.
Black Mask has a new comic coming out this week. You know what that means right? It means it’ll sell out very quick and fans will be scrambling to get a copy of the first print. So here’s your chance to get the first print of Forevers #1 before it sells out and the asking price is at a premium. This is all going on most of Blask Masks past history within the aftermarket.
Following their success with issue number one, Nvrlnd #2 from 451 Media Group.

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!! The comic is pictured here and can be yours if you share the InvestComics web page everyplace you can to help us reach 3000 Likes on the Facebook page. FULL details right HERE!! Share!!

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!
