New JLA series begins; Justice League Of America #1, written by Steve Orlando and art by Ivan Reis.
Writer Hope Larson continues the ‘Son of Penguin’ storyline in Batgirl #8. The second appearance of Penguins son; Ethan Cobblepot.
Astro City hits its 100th anniversary issue; Astro City #41. This issue will have a couple of character introductions. Covers by Alex Ross, written by Kurt Busiek and art from Brent Eric Anderson.

It’s hard to believe the Thunderbolts will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in Thunderbolts #10 this Wednesday. Way back in Incredible Hulk #449 (1997), we got our first look at the then Thunderbolts team. The team has changed a number of times over the years, but that 1997 book was their first appearance. The 20 year old comic is still relatively affordable in some places on Ebay. Make sure you click our RED link to see the pricing and availability.
The Spider-Man Deadpool #14 cover shows Deadpool and Spidey at a comic convention. There are a few Deadpool cosplayers vying for position for an opportunity photo with Wade and there are many Deadpool cosplayers scattered throughout. It’s fun/silly comic cover scenes like this that wind up getting speculators in a frenzy over a first appearance somewhere. Maybe this cover features the first appearance of Rabbitpool? Bunnypool? Afropool?

For some reason, when the Elektra character debuts a new series, it always starts off red hot, but then tails off. We have faith this will not be the case for the new series beginning on Wednesday. Look for quick initial interest for Elektra #1, written by Matt Owens and art from Juan Cabal. If you like it, be sure to support the comic and buy the next issue(s).

Indie Hot Picks;
IDW Publishing delivers a few comics on this week’s Hot Picks list.
Revolutionaries #2 features the all new Storm Shadow.
If you’re an animal lover, there’s a comic for you this week. Check out IDW’s Animal Noir #1. Writer/artist Izar Lunacek tells the tale of animals that talk, wear clothes, smoke and investigate a prey fantasy film. We think this may not be a comic for the kiddies.
TMNT Universe #7 reveals the new Metalhead.
IDW also offers up Cosmic Scoundrels #1, Andy Suriano and Matt Chapman bring this web series to life. Two annuals; Judge Dredd Annual #1 and My Little Pony Annual #1.

Every new Black Mask comic release sells out (mostly). They offer up Quantum Teens Are Go #1. Written by Magdalene Visaggio and art by Eryk Donovan.

Image one shot; Belfry #1 will probably sell out. Writer/artist Gabriel Hardman delivers a horror story that may have fans asking for more. It starts here.
Speaking of sold out comics, Old Guard #1 will probably join Belfry #1 as the duo will show strong sales out of the gate. Old Guard #1, a story of old soldiers that won’t die. Written by the awesome Greg Rucka and art from Leandro Fernandez.
A sold out comic from Press Gang in 2016 makes its way to Image comics. The Anime style Sun Bakery #1 from writer/artist Corey Lewis.

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Black Panther #1 (1977) 8.5. Here’s a beauty waiting to be bought for only $100.00. His first solo comic. Black Panther still has upside. His new comic coming out, a yet to be seen appearance in Cap’s Civil War movie, and a solo movie. Yes more upside for a character that hasn’t even hit its stride yet in film and the new comic book is getting all kinds of hype too. Black Panther is and will be the real deal.

Fanboys, please do not email us or make fanboy comments on our social media or here. If you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading please. If you’ve ever had a heated debate/fight/argument/cried (as an adult) over who is stronger Hulk or Superman or anything similar resembling a deep love of a comic character and know nothing about business, then please skip the opening here.

Have you’ve seen the new Deadpool movie? Well if haven’t, you probably have seen the aftermarket going bonkers after its release. New Mutants #87 (first full appearance of Cable) is quickly becoming the NEW New Mutants #98. This isn’t a bad thing if you’re on the side of the seller. If you’re a buyer, well you’re going to have to pay a severe premium in order to get your hands on the Cable book if you want it. Here’s the thing, and we’ve said it time and time again within the blogs of the InvestComics website. The New Mutants #98 comic is overpriced and so is (will be) New Mutants #87. The absurdity in pricing for these comics is almost comical actually.
Here are some quick numbers. Let us remind you here, CBCS does not have a census. Which means these numbers are probably much higher. These are CGC numbers…..
There are a total of 1000 New Mutants #87 graded at 9.8. 1087 graded at 9.6. A total of 3804 graded so far. That’s currently, that number will climb steadily and remember, this does not include CBCS. New Mutants #98; 2307 graded at 9.8, 2806 graded at 9.6 and a total of 9514 total graded. Probably over 10,000 graded counting CBCS.
Doctor Strange #169 (1968) 30 graded at 9.8, 70 graded at 9.6 and a total of 1063 graded. How is it that New Mutants #98 is rivaling this comic? Now all the fanboys got their panties in a bunch. Relax. We understand it’s a popularity contest right now, but here is some truth that the other wannbe InvestComics sites will not tell you. The Doctor Strange book is by far and away a better sound investment. Instead of spending $400/$500 on a first appearance on a comic(s) that are well documented as to having many copies available, use your business tactics and understand that supply and demand will eventually equate into the equation here and you will lose if you hold onto your comic a bit too long. It’s inevitable, you will lose money on New Mutants #87 and #98 because you refused to let it go. Anyone spending large amounts of money to have these comics in their possession, better have a plan to sell at an opportune time or else you will be in the red. Just in case you haven’t notice, we’ll say it, the comic book market has been and continues to see a massive correction. Especially the moderns. That first appearance of Spider-Gwen (variant) that InvestComics advised AGAINST buying at ridiculous prices is more than $300/$400/$500 below its asking price from more than a year ago. InvestComics warned our fans, while the other fanboy sites encouraged the buying frenzy. We’re here to spill truth and guide you, not help you lose money. Do not give into the hype of a comic or comics that saw prints of upwards to 225k a piece (New Mutants #98 and a bit less for New Mutants #87). That’s a quarter of a million copies of ONE comic book. What does this mean actually? Well it means there are several dealers and collectors that are sitting on long boxes full of Deadpool and Cable first appearance comic books. Can we say the same for a classic comic like Doctor Strange #169? No we cannot. Not hating on the first Deadpool or Cable here, but use common sense when spending that hard earned money. Realize that these two particular comics have a ceiling AND more importantly a ground floor. If you’re a buyer at a premium for ANY 90’s (*ahem* Doomsday *ahem* Apocalypse) or modern book), you have to know when to dump it or when the correction in the market does in FACT happen, you’ll be in the red and you’ll never make that money back. We’ve said this before, we’ll say it again. the real money is in Bronze/Silver/Golden. And one more thing. About Doomsday and Apocalypse, most likely one trick ponies. We’ll see them once and they’ll fade into obscurity never to be seen again on the big screen, thus driving that premium price back to the correct area.

And the award for longest title of the week goes to…….Hellboy and the BPRD 1953 Beyond The Fences #1! With this award the readers will get Writers Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson along with artist’s Paolo Rivera and Joe Rivera. Hellboy: Year Two. Yep, we’re in.

Maybe DC Comics received a special bundle price for the amount of Neal Adams variant covers we’re getting this month. Here are the covers this week from the legend himself; Flash #49, Deathstroke #15 (the Tyler Kirkman regular cover kills), Aquaman #49, Superman Lois And Clark #5, We Are Robin #9, Teen Titans #17, Cyborg #8, Grayson #17, and Superman #49.
And for the second week in a row, a Neal Adams Superman Wonder Woman variant comic is sold out. Check out Superman Wonder Woman #26 as Korean artist extraordinaire Kim Jung Gi pencils his second issue with the big three (Supes, WW, and Bats). We informed our fans last week about Kim Jung Gi. This guy is the real deal. Kim actually does the cover art for one of these variants (pictured here).
The real reason we have Neal Adams overload this month is because Superman The Coming Of The Supermen #1 will be coming out. Neal Adams will be the writer/artist here for the six issue mini-series. Fans are looking forward to a boldly told story and art from Neal. He will not disappoint here.

After a slight blip, Batman Dark Knight III The Master Race #3 will be back on schedule. And with it, as usual, a ridiculous amount of variant covers. All the covers are nice, nothing so riveting that you’ll need to pluck down a months worth of allowance for, but the Midtown Comics Greg Capullo cover is cool (pictured here).

Crazy eye candy from cover from Lee Bermejo coming this Wednesday. Check out We Are Robin #9. And more of the same from Michael Cho’s Daredevil #4 (Vol 5).

IDW pits two unlikely franchises together for the first time ever, Street Fighter X and GI Joe. Yep, fun for all! A whole bunch of nutty variants will be available. The Matt Waite pixel cover is good, but our fav is the Paolo Villanelli cover.

Comic fans will be introduced to an all new mutant on new comic book day. Check out the introduction of Bailey Hoskins in X-Men Worst X-Man Ever #1. Definitely a comic to pay attention to.
Marvel warns fans about the last page in All New All Different Avengers #6. Don’t go to your shop and open to the last page now! It’s not a library you know! Hahaha!

With the press coverage Faith #1 received, it now comes time to see how the follow up issue does. Faith #2 comes out Wednesday with less fanfare, so let’s see how many fans stick with it after the first issue. Many will follow up regardless of the press push.

A couple of ‘returns’ this week in different ways, with lots of awesome reading ahead as a bunch of hot series continue….
webspm1_1985_1995.gif

Web of Spider-Man #1 – The very successful Spider-Man series fromwebofspm1.gif1985 is making a comeback. The original series ran from 1985 to 1995 and still has till this day one of the most awesome Spidey cover’s ever. Charles Vess supplied the painted cover to Web of Spider-Man #1 in 1985 and it still remains a very recognizable one today. The cover to the new Web number one issue is a real nice one drawn by Pasqual Ferry. Nowhere near as nice as Vess though, sorry Ferry. You can get a hold of the first issue original series for only $10. That cover alone is worth the money. Look for a quick sell out on this book, so put together a nice side by side number one issue on Ebay and get more bang for your buck.
3 is a lucky number this week…… 

advcomics3.gifIt looks like a week for some heavy hitters as far as hot series go. Adventure Comics is burning up the sales rack as DC makes theirbatgirl3.gifmove on the new Superboy book, some serious changes about to occur at the conclusion or start of the Adventure Comics series in the next few issues. Keep your eyes and ears open on this one. A lot of speculation running amuck onto what might happen, let’s all wait and see while we enjoy the lead up to it. Looks as though DC has another hit on their hands! Don’t pass up on Adventure Comics #3. Speaking of changes, Batgirl will be doing some changing. It seems like she may have already changed her eye contacts color on the cover of Batgirl #3, but it’s not the eyes that are changing, it’s the costume. Like as if the costume she wore now isn’t hot enough! Look for some heat to hit on this series as Batgirl gets hotter in every way possible. Well since we’re all on the hotness topic, have you seen that Variant Jim Lee cover to Liberty Comics #2? Some of the greatest comic book creators have contributed to this comic and you should definitely help the cause. Any comic book that has the names Neil Gaiman, Jim Lee, Jimmy Palmiotti, Dave Gibbons and Paul Pope attached to it, it needs to bethemarvelsproject3namorcover.gif bought.  All proceeds from this comic will benefit the First Amendment legal work of the Comic Book Legal libertycomics2jimlee.gifDefense Fund. It’s for an awesome cause and this Jim Lee Variant is only $25. And rounding out our lucky number 3 books this week is The Origin of the Marvel Universe, with The Marvels Project #3. A beautiful Variant from Gerald Parel does not compare to a total pissed off Namor ‘regular cover’ from Steve McNiven. Good stuff from McNiven here. Uncanny X-Men #516 sees the return of Magneto. Greg Land gives us a great look into the eye(s) of the powerful Villain on the cover. Good to have Magneto back, X-Men probably don’t feel this way, but oh well!

If you’re in the mood to look through some $1 long boxes this week for anomadgirlwithoutaworld2.giffirst appearance, you’re in luck. Nomad: Girl Without a World #2 comes out with an appearance by Flag Smasher. The first appearance of the ‘first’ smasher is in Captain America #312. Smasher number 2 is in the more recent Avengers The Initiative Annual #1. Buying these comics will help solve that appetite you have to look for a first appearance this week. As far as the investment side goes on the character Flag Smasher though, well not much upside, but makes for some happy hunting.capamer312flagsmasher1.gifavengerstheinitiativeannual1flagsmasher2.gif

Detective Comics Annual #27 begins ‘The Eighthdetectivecomicsannual11.gifDeadly
Sin’ which leads right into the new Azrael ongoing series. Anyone remember when Joe Q was on the Azrael book? Ahh fun times they were!
 

 

 

theanchor1variant.gifNow we have arrived to the last Hot Pick of the week which is also thetheanchor1.gif‘Sleeper’
pick of the week. Anchor #1, brought to you by Boom Studios! Writer Phil Hester and Artist Brian Churilla bring a tale of War, Beast, Viking and Medieval Times. The solicit reads that fans of Hellboy & The Goon would get this comics’ humor and storytelling. You at home reading this, you should just ‘get this.’
