Nova #1 – Some of the variants are already selling out. The new Nova series looks to be starting on the right foot.

Uber Invasion #1 – Avatar’s new Uber series will generate the legion of fans to come back and read this and create new fans as well. Writer Kieron Gilllen and Art by Daniel Gete.

Slapstick #1 – Marvel’s version new character has a Joker/Harley Quinn/Deadpool feel to him. We think, in our humble opinion, he has more upside than most fans/collectors are giving. Read this week’s Hot Picks for more on this.

Doctor Aphra #1 – A new Star Wars series starring the best new Star Wars character in the Marvel universe……….well, Disney universe.

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: We have three CBCS graded comics to check out this week. Power Man and Iron Fist #119 (1985) 9.8. The retelling of Iron Fists’ origin for only $95. Free shipping. John Byrne cover. Nova #1 (1976) 9.0. The first appearance and origin of Marvel’s Nova character. On the cusp of something great in our humble opinion. This 9.0 graded comic is only $99 with free shipping. New Mutants #87 (1990) 8.5. This is the first appearance of Cable. It’s an 8.5 and with a press, maybe bump that grade up? Only $99.

We informed our fans back in January of this year regarding the Marvel character Slapstick. Check that out right here at this LINK. We spoke about all of the Merc For Money characters getting their own solo books before it was ever spoken about from Marvel. We especially hyper-focused on the Slapstick character. We thought and still think there is upside to this goofy Joker/Deadpool misfit character. Maybe even bigger things down the pike for him. This week the new Slapstick #1 will begin his newest journey onward and upward. He first appeared back in 1992’s self titled book Slapstick #1. We said it back in January and we’ll say it again, get his first appearance now. It was literally 75 cents when we mentioned it back 11 months ago. A NM copy ranges around $10 now in some outlets. Well worth it. Buy it now. The new Slapstick #1 Rob Liefeld variant(s) have Deadpool on the cover to make this a must get for variant cover collectors.

Speaking of giving fans a heads up, we helped fans make lots of money (flips) with Darth Vader #3, the first appearance of Doctor Aphra. Marvel continues their female dominate character run with their last(?) solo female book of 2016; Star Wars Doctor Aphra #1. Written by Darth Vader writer Kieron Gillen and art from Kev Walker. The solicit remains a secret as fans will get an in-depth look into the rookie Star Wars player in the Marvel universe. The Doctor is in and the prognosis is a good one.

Entering its seventh volume, Nova #1 from writer Jeff Loveness/Ramon Perez and art by Ramon Perez. Marvel promises a Nova comic as you have never seen before. Be there on new comic book day to check this out.
Marvel and DC have found a niche in the comic book market a while ago and of course are running it to the ground. With that said, meet She-Borg in her first appearance in Cyborg #6. You see, it’s Cyborg, but a girl version. Yes for real, no kidding.
Fantastic Frankenstein Superman cover by Doug Mahnke; Superman #12.

Titan Comics will go back to well with their hit character Norman. Norman The First Slash #1 will begin a new series regarding the psychotic 9(?) year old boy. The first series sold very well as Norman #1 commanded some nice aftermarket cash before it settled off. If Titan Comics continues the restarts, that will demoralize the value a little bit of the number one issue. They should just have an on-going series and stick with it. That’s our two-cents, but Titan Comics and Norman will be awesome no matter what anyway.
Faith #6 from Valiant Entertainment will introduce fans to a new villain.
Dynamic Entertainment provides fans with a team up of epic proportions. A pairing that had fans screaming, demanding it happen. This Wednesday, because you demanded it, Wonder Woman 77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1. Odd pairing no?
A must read comic this week; Motor Crush #1 from Image Comics. Brought to you by the amazing creative team of Babs Tarr, Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart.

silk-1

Click to Buy Now!

IC 100 Club Pick: Silk #1 (2015) 9.8. Okay so you’re all wondering, Silk?! Really?? There are a few reason why we would grab this for $99. First off, it’s a crispy 9.8 grade. We all like that magic number don’t we? Second, It has FOUR signatures on it. Skottie Young, Stacey Lee, Robbie Thompson and Ian Herring. That in itself is worth the $99!! Lastly, we here at InvestComics love the character Silk and have said from day one that this character will be used in a big way someday. Might not be tomorrow, next week, next month, or anytime soon, but she will be a force one day. This $99 comic will tenfold with any positive news regarding Silk. Even if no news (for now), this is an amazing amazing buy for only $99!!! Buy it before WE do! 

DC’s “Big 3” (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman) get back together for a new series. Trinity #1 will be a road trip comic for the trio. In search of their maker, leads them through Gotham, Metropolis and elsewhere. Fans get the awesome Francis Manapul writing and penciling here. Should be a good book to check out.
Teen Titan member Cyborg debuts his new series this week. Cyborg #1 written by John Semper Jr. and art by Will Conrad.
Another Teen Titan member will get their own book this week; Raven. Raven #1 will be written by legend Marv Wolman. Marv also helped give birth to Raven and Cyborg (and New Teen Titans) into the comic book world in 1980’s DC Comics Presents #26 (George Perez art/Jim Starlin cover). InvestComics featured this comic in one of our first InvestComics magazine’s back in 2003/2004. Boy oh boy was it a lot cheaper back then. Even now, It’s still a fantastic book to own.

Image Comics’ Seven To Eternity #1 will turn some heads. New sci-fi/magic book from creators Rick Remender (writer) and Jerome Opena/Matt Hollingsworth (artist). This fantastic line-up will attract fans for sure. Non fans will get wind of this comic and flock to it as well.
IDW debuts their major crossover storyline; Revolutions. Check out several of their comics this week with the ‘Revolution’ header and follow along. Revolutions #1 will be written by fan favorite Cullen Bunn. Rom gets caught up in the crossover with a Rob Liefeld variant of all things. Yes that’s correct, Rom Revolution #1 has a Rob Liefeld variant! And it’s awesome too. While we’re talking about Rom and ‘Revolution’, Rom #3 (a Revolution crossover) will have a simple, but compelling variant from JK Woodward.

Below is a checklist of Iron Fist comics; first appearances, key issues, and other books. There WILL BE MISSED books here. It’s okay, no one will die. Please read the disclaimer!!

Iron Fist Checklist

Marvel Premiere #15 (1974) The first appearance of Iron Fist. The holy grail of Iron Fist comics. Writer Roy Thomas, Pencils and cover Gil Kane, and inker Dick Giodano.

When Marvel/Netflix get it together, Iron Fist will be a household name. If for some reason it doesn’t work out with Netflix, look for Marvel to want to hit the big screen instead. The mere fact that the Iron Fist character is mentioned so much these days shows a tremendous amount of interest on Marvel’s (Disney’s) part. So with that, Marvel will start the Kung-Fu entertainment revolution once again either way. This comic also features the first appearances of Ferocia, Harold Meachum, Nuan, Wendell Rand, Heather Rand. Shu-Hu, and Yu-Ti.

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu #1 (1974) First appearance of Lin Sun, Robert Diamond, and Abraham Brown.

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu Special #1 (1974) The second appearance of Iron Fist. This is a magazine form comic.

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

Marvel Premiere #16 (1974) Iron Fist’s second comic book appearance. First appearances of Fu-Hsi. Scythe, Shou-Lao the Undying, and Thunderer. Origin continued.

Marvel Premiere #17 (1974) First appearance of Triple-Iron.

Marvel Premiere #18 (1974) First appearance of Joy Meachum. Iron Fist origin issue.

Marvel Premiere #19 (1974) The first appearances of Colleen Wing and Professor Lee Wing. This comic also signifies the first appearance of Wolverine via an ad within the comic. It predates The Incredible Hulk #181. Cool stuff.

Marvel Premiere #21 (1975) First appearances of Shaya, Ushas and Misty Knight.

Here’s a speculation article that will run periodically regarding which comics we feel should be the next to hit the movies, television or become an animated show. Will any of these comics see the light of day? Possibly. Possibly not. InvestComics throughout its years (10 years, longest running speculative website on the internet and the number one speculative website) has called a MANY comics (and characters) to hit the screen WAY before they were ever announced to do so. Guardians of The Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Warlock, Dormammu, Kick Ass, Thanos, Nemesis, Crossbones, just to name a few that have come to light and or will be coming. We’re not saying that these comics in these articles are guarantees to ever come to fruition, but these are our choices we feel deserve some airplay….in some form. Even a video game too.

Please realize that all of this is a speculative look at the hobby. Maybe some of these will become reality, maybe most of these won’t, but understand that this is pure speculation. Read the disclaimer. Read the disclaimer. Oh and read the disclaimer and please have fun.

Rom (Movie/Toon/Game) – Marvel Comics made the Rom toy a cult favorite comic book. Now IDW will pick up the mantle and start an entirely new race and galaxy realm without any Dire Wraiths (Marvel owns that). Although a Rom based movie would seem a bit campy probably to make, we thought that of the Transformers idea too, but that worked. Maybe an animated show would fair better here.
*Rom #1 (1979) Writer Bill Mantlo and art by Sal Buscema. Cover art by Joe Rubinstein and Fran Miller. 75 issues. Rom’s first venture ever outside of his book cam in Power Man and Iron Fist #73 (1981). Cover by Frank Miller.

Power Pack (Movie/Game) – As InvestComics called this comic out back in 2010, who would have known Marvel Studios would report directly to Disney eventually? We did of course. Eventually Disney will take over complete creative control, so with that said we get Power Pack on this articles list. A made for movie comic book right in Disney’s wheelhouse. It’s probably a matter of WHEN this will get done, not a matter of IF.
*Power Pack #1 (1984) First appearance. Writer Louise Simonson and art by June Brigman. Cover art by June Brigman and Bob Wiacek. Lasted 62 issues.

Micronauts (Movie/Game) – This toy line went on to spawn a plethora of comic books from many different companies, but it’s Marvel Comics who got things started in 1979. A movie would seem a fantastic way to go here. Michael Bay?
*Micronauts #1; First appearance. Bill Mantlo writes, art work by Michael Golden. Cover by Dave Cockrum and Al Milgrom. Lasted 59 issues.

Moon Knight (Movie/TV/Game) – InvestComics has been on this character since the inception of the website 10 years ago. If there is one character we feel that will guarantee to breakout into its own movie or television series, this dude right here is it. (A rare thing to get any sort of guarantees here on InvestComics). Check out the ultimate Moon Knight checklist from InvestComics right HERE. You will not find a better list. We guarantee it.
*First appeared in Werewolf By Night #32 (1975). First solo comic; Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976).

Alpha Flight (Movie) – Canada’s bad as* team needs to get their due. An absolute breakout film if it would ever get done. This team is the real deal.
*First appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #120 (1979). Alpha Flight #1 (1983) was written by John Byrne, art by John Byrne and cover by Byrne and Terry Ausin. Lasted 130 issues. If Alpha Flight ever takes flight and makes it to the big screen, Alpha Flight #1 will be the equivalent of New Mutants #98 in the sense that although there is a major overprint run on the book, it’ll command big dollars in the aftermarket.

Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner (Movie) – No stranger to InvestComics readers here. We wrote up a few times over the years (BEFORE Disney became the official bosses recently) that Disney has conquered land and space on the big screen. Just a matter of time before they hit one of their favorite places; water. So many successful films for the Mouse company taking place in the depths of water. How about that first live action water superhero movie Disney? It starts right here with Prince Namor. It has to.
*First appearance Motion Picture Funnies Weekly Volume 1 #1 (1939). Fantastic Four #4; first Silver Age Namor. Stan Lee writes, art by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and cover by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Sol Brodsky. Just like InvestComics informed buyers to buy the first Inhumans at ANY grade, buy this comic book at any grade, doesn’t matter. Buy it. The Sub Mariner #1 (1968) comic is definitely one to have in your collection once the movie finally comes to fruition. No doubt here (another guarantee). The series lasted 72 issues.

The Pro – (Movie/TV) Here is an awesome movie or HBO/AMC television show waiting to happen. A prostitute superhero tries to find her way within the grand scheme of things with a baby in tow. A cable comedy series that would kill. This comic story is not suitable for all readers. If you’re easily offended, this book is NOT for you. A movie here would be good, but leaving audiences wanting more probably, so a television series would be the better route here.
*The Pro (2002) from Image Comics; Written by Garth Ennis, art by Amanda Connor and cover by Connor/Jimmy Palmiotti.

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.

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.

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.

New Release Comics on 5/20/15 (And back issues)

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

 

Marvel’s newest title will be hitting this Wednesday; A-Force #1. A much hyped all female Avengers team. With all of the female strong characters of late, this only seems fitting right? Here’s the thing, and this happens way too often. Whenever the big two (Marvel or DC) hit on something (characters/team) that works for them (monetarily), they go ahead and shove it down our throats. Deadpool, Lobo, Wolverine, Spider-Gwen, Ghost Rider, etc. It happens all the time. Appearances aplenty and number one issues as well. The  A-Force team will be shoved in our faces as “must like” material. Here’s newsflash, this A-Force love-fest is not going to last very long. Not being a negative Nancy, just a realist and a speculator. We hope to get proven wrong, but history is doomed to repeat itself here. Quickly, name one mega successful all female comic book team book. You can’t. You can probably rattle off a dozen female characters that are simply red hot right now though and have held their own for years and years. That’s where this all works. Just like some of their counterparts, they are fantastic solo acts or team players. An all female team is not what the fandom really wants. Yes some female comic character are out selling their counterparts easily and we get that the push to lure the girl into the hobby is possibly working, but it’s not going to work with A-Force. Again, prove us wrong, would love that. We want to see success here.
With all this said, the great part about A-Force #1 is we’re probably going to get an endearing story. An all female Avengers heroes team kicking butt should be a fun read. We also know we’re getting a ridiculous amount of variants too. The Adam Hughes variant is sold out.
So get this book because you like to read comics. You probably will not be able to speculate this book and make some serious cash on it. Maybe, possibly an immediate impact, but longer term? Simply don’t see it. Last time here, prove us wrong and sustain some readership/market value. Please. That Adam Hughes variant is nice though isn’t it?! Enjoy the great read.

More Secret Wars awesomeness with the release of Secret Wars Battleworld #2. Witness all of the knock em down drag them out fights in this comic. M.O.D.O.K. Evilness reaches new heights here. M.O.D.O.K.’s First appearance is in Tales of Suspense #94 (1967). Such a goofy looking character, and it’s brought to you by Stan Lee, Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Wow now that’s some firepower. For many years fans have clamored the presence of M.O.D.O.K. On the big screen and it just doesn’t seem feasible without looking completely goofy. Maybe, somehow Marvel figures it out, but seeing a huge head like that flying around would be a “jump the shark” type deal and not a productive one. More like a Dark Crystal or a muppet type feel, thus not taken seriously. Marvel Studios is probably aware of the possible vibe and this is why we’ll probably never see this character on screen.

The Marvel Ultimate universe is ending. What a ride is has been! Witness this tragic event in Ultimate End #1. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Mark Bagley. This is the same exact creative team that ushered in the Marvel Ultimate Universe 15 years ago with the first Ultimate comic ever; Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). Ultimate End #1 will be a story for the ages. No more Ultimate Universe. And we don’t really see it coming back from Marvel either. This won’t be a “take-back” from Marvel. We don’t see Marvel going back to the well anytime soon re-releasing Ultimate books or the universe. Marvel is merging the two universe’s in the Secret Wars/Battleworld story, so essentially they really don’t have a need to revisit the Ultimate universe later on down the line. Of course it can still happen because if Marvel wants it they’ll do it, but bringing back the Ultimate universe (ever) after the dust settles on this storyline would be a tremendous disappointment.

Planet Hulk #1 will be full of awesome this Wednesday. Regular readers here at InvestComics know that Planet Hulk and World War Hulk have been promoted here as enormous buys because of the movie speculation we were first on. No one else was informing speculators to buy The Incredible Hulk #92 (2006) back a few years ago, the first Planet Hulk. Also What If Planet Hulk #1 (2007). We still recommend these comic. Buy them. A surprise creative team backup story accompanies Planet Hulk #1, we look forward to the surprise!

Remember InvestComics informing everyone to buy anything Spider-Verse , and that first Spider-Gwen was in there which paid for all of your new comics and then some for a few months? Yeah, so now Spider-Verse is back; Spider-Verse #1 and this just means that there will be another chance for one of those first appearances or re-introductions to do well in the aftermarket. Stay close here with your ear to the ground. That all said, the Robert Rodriguez Spider-Gwen variant is sold out already. Best get your hands on one at your local shop or click on the link or comic cover here in this article to bid/buy now before the price escapes you.

InvestComics informs speculators and readers almost every week, they need to get on top of any new Star Wars comics if they want to be in the know and the possible aftermarket frenzy. At any time a new hero or villain can show up. This will cause a huge aftermarket boost. Get in and get out. If you want, hold onto at least one of your $4.99 comics if you want to possibly wait and see if the market will explode after the movie in December. Buy new Star Wars comics. All of them……and the new Star Wars #5 this week.

Master of Kung Fu #1.….maybe Marvel really wants this work because of the Iron Fist Netflix on the horizon. Create that whole Karate/Kung Fu vibe. Bring back the Kung Fu lure, make it happening again. Get the first Master of Kung Fu in Special Marvel Edition #15 (1973) just in case we have a resurgence. Pencils and cover by Jim Starlin too. Nice.

A bunch of number one comics to definitely check out this week;

Insufferable #1 from IDW, written by Mark Waid, art by Peter Krause. A new team book and it looks awesome. Boom Studios; Oh Killstrike #1. Interesting premise here. An escaped comic book character needs to be put back into a comic book. And the Kris Anka variant cover is sold out. Aspen Comics makes an appearance this week here with Psycho Bonkers #1.What a great title! Love it. And what a great looking read too. A five issue mini-series. Adventures of Aero Girl #1 from Action Lab Entertainment also looks like an interesting/fun read. The first Accelerators series did well for Blue Juice comics, so now we have a follow up with Accelerators Momentum #1. Valhalla Mad #1 from Image Comics. Written by Joe Casey. A sellout for sure. A whacked out take on mythology. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency #1, written by Mr. IDW himself Chris Ryall. Dark Horse; Resident Alien Sam Hain Mystery #1. A good looking story here. Chuck Dixon’s Winterworld Frozen Fleet #1 from IDW will be a good book to sit back and read.

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

Deadpools Secret Secret Wars #1. A wacky tale here written by Cullen Bunn. Great Tony Harris regular cover too. And also a solid homage grave variant as well. Sold out comics here most likely.

So what is the InvestComics Hot Picks article about? Many think this is a place to just post about the latest hot back issue comic that hit yesterday or a potential comic down the road because news came out last week about some possible movie. This weekly article covers the new comic releases that are coming out on Wednesday. That’s it. We give readers and speculators the heads up on potential books to either monetize on or just to enjoy a good read regarding new comic book day. There have been many emails, messages, random post saying “what about this book?!” or “Jay you should include this comic in your Hot Picks.” While we love and appreciate the input, this is not what this article is about. Never was in all of its ten years. We sometimes feature solo articles regarding the “breaking news” books. We also post on the InvestComics Facebook page and our other social media outlets. This is why it’s so important for speculators to follow and or like our pages too. InvestComics broke the Thor Hulkbuster comic on our Facebook page and also we gave the scoop on the Black Panther sister book, the Captain America Crossbones book, the Inhumans first appearance (more on this book in a bit), and the list goes on. Don’t miss out anymore, get over there! Again, as far as the InvestComics Hot Picks go, this is strictly about the new comics coming out and then touching on the older comics that relate to the new ones. The real money is within the older books we have always recommended. If you were privy enough to capitalize on all of the back issues we have recommended, you are sitting on a beautiful collection. As always said here regarding the new books; buy new to buy old.

A NEW WEEKLY article will be hitting this week, so look out for it. The new article is going to be fun and we cannot wait to share it with everyone. Look for it before new comic book day on Wednesday. We also want to thank everyone for making the other weekly new article; InvestComics Top 5 a hit too. The response has been a great one. Continue to look for that before Wednesday too.

So let’s get to this crazy busy week…..

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

Another year, another big event. DC comics is promising to change things drastically (again) with their Convergence event. The event starts up with Convergence #0 this week. The event claims to cover the lifespan of the entire DC Universe. Sounds like fun! Probably going to be some awesome reading ahead here. Probably also going to be the potential of some first appearances too which is always nice. What we do know is there will be completely new looks for many of the characters. How well received will these costumes be? So far 50/50. Will it equate to a speculation rally? Potentially yes, but maybe not for that long. It really depends on a couple of factors. If the new looks will make its way to the big screen and or sustain the duration of its title and not changing it again and again, which tends to happen more often than not. Thus killing the spec market on the new costume deal. The new Superman duds seem to be the one drawing a lot of flack. Oh well, DC doesn’t care what the fanboy wants, they never did and rightly so. They shouldn’t cater to the few. The many pay the bills, not the screaming fanboy. So for now that’s what DC wants and that’s what they will stick with….for now. As for Convergence, great potential on a big storyline here, the spec side is a wait and see. One thing we will give you a heads on is the Adam Hughes Convergence variant is sold out already. A good book to possibly get signed and graded quickly to flip. A pricey $50 variant (now $100 already) makes for making real money a bit harder though. Must score a high grade here to max your return.

New 52 Futures End #48 will have possible ties to Convergence, so pick this one up if you are all in on the Convergence deal.

Harley Quinn #16 will feature the debut of the Gang of Harley’s. What more do you need here really? A Harley comic with an introduction? Yes, massive potential here. Two $15 variants are sold out. The Left hand variant and the right hand variant. No really, those are the variants. Be sure to click the red link to buy/bid on Ebay right now if you want this one. There is also a very cool WonderCon variant as well. We told you to click the Darth Vader #3 link last week when the variant there was $9.99, did you do that? Should have right?

Fantastic_Four_45_InvestComics Inhumans_InvestComics (3)

The Inhumans is one of those teams that InvestComics has recommended over the years time and time again. With Uncanny Inhumans #0 coming out this week, it’s time to strongly reiterate the absolutely, positively one of the best investments sitting out there right now. That investment is Fantastic Four #45 (1965). Could care less how high the price is for this comic right now. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it. This comic still has upside and will not stop for many many years. Here’s why and please remember to credit InvestComics with this information okay? Thanks. Fox Studios will not give up the rights to the X-Men over to Marvel Studios. What is the big mouse to do right? Well this is very easy. Go with their other team that is the closest thing to the X-Men and franchise. In come the Inhumans. Why do you think the title of this comic is “Uncanny” Inhumans? The Inhumans movie is going to be huge. So huge that the Inhumans will have their own movie flow as does the X-Men. Their own storyline, their own individual universe if you will. The Inhumans team will turn the comic book “team” concept movie upside down on its head as did the Guardians of the Galaxy. But the Inhumans will rival the X-Men and that is going to be some serious cash flow for Marvel Studios and more importantly the comic book speculators. Buy the Inhumans. Buy the Inhumans. Buy a low grade Fantastic Four #45 if you do not have the cash to buy a high grade. The low grade is better than NOT having that book at all. It must be in your collection. So go to your local comic shop and see what they have. Click on the red Fantastic Four #45 link to shop on Ebay. We cannot stress enough how much up side this book has. As for the Uncanny Inhumans #0 comic this week, it will focus on the leader of the group, Black bolt. A good pick up here, but a long wait time to make any real monies. The $50 Siya Oum is already sold out. This might be the better buy with a high grade and signature(s) on it. Fantastic Four #45 is where it’s really at.

Marvel continues their onslaught of new Star Wars books this week with Kanan Last Padawan #1. It seems with Marvel’s Star Wars these days, everything is hot. Will this comic be hot? Probably, maybe. Will it last? Maybe. Does it have big buy potential? Not really, but that can change rather quickly in the world of comics. All this character needs is an announcement of appearing in one of the new Star Wars movies and you have yourself a frenzy. That hasn’t happened. It may never happen. So what happens then? Well you then have an animated character making his solo comic debut. Actually an earlier appearance in print is in Star Wars Rebels magazine #2 from last month, but who’s paying attention to that? Ha! Click that red link if you want that magazine. But getting back, animated characters never equate to big dollar signs in comic books unless your name is Harley Quinn. A breakout will happen occasionally, but it’s a rarity for animation characters to bring a big return for speculators. Buy the Kanan Last Padawan #1 comic this Wednesday for a good read and a $4.99 risk. Maybe something will occur. Maybe the comic will get hot right out of the gate and you have yourself a hot book to resell. Anything is possible. The TV show variant ($10) and the Killian Plunkett variant ($15) are both sold out. So if you think the potential is there, buy them. Remember one thing (as said here quite often), sold out comics DO NOT mean there is money to be made. It’s just a heads up for the speculator to make a judgment call.

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

A couple of weeks ago InvestComics gave fans a running start on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 comic. The “death” of a character was the calling there. Turns out it was Donatello and it looks as though he will make it to issue number 45 after all. This week we present the storyline that will give readers the demise of long time character Snakeyes from G.I. Joe. Look for G.I. Joe #212 for the beginning of the end for Snake Eyes. The problem with death in comic books is that there is no death in comic books. No one stays dead. This storyline however will be a hot one. Lots of eyeballs will be on it. Lots of speculators on it. Do not look for long term here. This is going to be a great story, but Snake Eyes will come back eventually. Maybe as someone else, but the character will be back in some form. IDW will bring it as they always do, so definitely check out this storyline. The Larry Hama and Anthony Fuso variants are both sold out. If you’re in the market for these books, better it now if you want them at a lower price. There are currently no G.I Joe #212 comics on Ebay. Many speculators are holding of to see where the marketplace goes. Otherwise you’ll have to wait a while for the prices to come back down to a normal level after the frenzy dies down to purchase a copy.

GI_Joe_InvestComics Harley_Quinn_InvestComics (1) Spider_Gwen_3_InvestComics

Long time friends of InvestComics; Creature Entertainment have a hit on their hands. Check out Ravenous #1 this Wednesday. If you ever have the chance to get on over to the Creature Entertainment booth at a convention, do yourself a favor and do so. John Ulloa and Jose Navarro are great guys. Their product is superb too. Killer artist Jose Varese is part of the team and is the penciler on Ravenous #1. Support this Indie company Creature Entertainment and buy this already sold out comic. The variant is a beauty too.

Wonder Woman continues her torrid pace thanks to David and Meredith Finch. Wonder Woman #40 features one of those cool movie variants. InvestComics has touched on a few of the movie variants to have some fun with and either monetize on or to have a one of a kind book for your collection. Wonder Woman #40 features the 300 movie variant. Get actor Gerard Butler and artist for the cover Bill Sienkiewicz to sign this comic. Get it witnessed/graded and you have yourself an amazing book. Again, we don’t want to get fan mail or fanboys screaming “How do I get actor Gerard Butler to sign my comic??? He’s never at a comic convention!!!” Stop it. Really, stop it. This is all in F U N. The odds of running into ANY of the people we suggested to sign your movie comic variants in the last few weeks is extremely slim. You will probably never get Prince, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Tommy Lee Jones, etc, but the potential of ever getting an opportunity to get a signed/graded comic book movie variant by Prince is just flat out fun. Please calm down with the actual thinking that InvestComics is telling fans to actually find these celebrities and get this done. It’s merely an outside the box way of thinking to get a unique book in your collection or to sell. Oh and by the way, Wonder Woman #40 David Finch variant is sold out.

Avengers Ultron Forever #1 will fast forward 500 years into the future. Ultron has won and all humans are now extinct. Dr. Strange brings the Avengers from the past to try and defeat Ultron. Fun times! Superheroes fighting villains, we all love that right? The three part series is brought to you by the awesome artistry of Alan Davis. Two variants are extinct already; the Black Widow and the Captain America. Expect sell outs across the board here.

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

When talking about the return of comic book characters earlier and how they never really die, they return in some way or another eventually. Wolverines #13 will be just that. Wolverine is “dead” but Deadpool will bring him back in his own way. Yes there will be a Wolverpool? Deadvernie? However you want to call it, but this will be the debut of something. That something being Deadpool as Wolverine. A hot book as a novelty, nothing substantial to come of this later on.

And speaking on debuts, there might be one in Iron Fist Living Weapon #11 this week. Thumb through it to see what’s what.

Kanan_InvestComics Punisher_InvestComics Ravengers_1_InvestComics

Spider-Gwen #3 will guest star the Punisher. There are so many variants with this issue. Nice too though. Earth 2 Worlds End #26 has Darkseid winning it all. He’s a bad dude. And have you seen the cover on this one? Darkseid dangling the defeated heroes in the air like dead mice. So awesome. Sticking on topic about covers, the new Nailbiter #11 cover is as disturbing as the number one issue isn’t it? The Punisher #17 cover by Mitch Gerads is awesome too.

The new Puppet Master #1 will have 24 variant covers. Yes that’s 24, not a typo.

Two followups to sold out number one comics come this Wednesday. Blackcross #2 and Citizen of the Galaxy #2. Let’s see if readership keeps in stride and good word comes out that these series are for real.

Here is the long list of number one comics to check out this week; UFOlogy #1, Arkham Manor Engame #1, True Believers Age of Apocalypse #1, True Believers Marvel Zombies #1, Avengers Millennium #1, Sinestro Annual #1, Empire of the Dead Act Three #1, Rick and Morty #1, Gotham Academy Endgame #1 will have a possible introduction here, Poet Anderson Dream Walker #1, Guardians of the Galaxy Best Story Ever #1, No Mercy #1, Hoax Hunters #1, My Little Pony Fiendship is Magic #1 and Looking For Group #1. Wow that’s a lot of number one comics coming out. Better get those reading glasses on.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 5/7/14

[scrollGallery id=349]

We hope that your Free Comic book day was a good one. If you were lucky enough to grab a few free comics, good for you! One free comic in particular may turn out to be a nice keeper. The free comic named Epic (ComixTribe) has massive potential written all over it. This Wednesday; Epic (2013 ComixTribe) #1 arrives on the shelf with a sold out sign on it. If you were lucky enough to snag a copy, hold onto it because there might be some movement in the aftermarket on Epic’s first appearance.

The new Maxx comic this week; Maxx Maxximized (2013 IDW) #7 has an appearance from Pitt. Pitt was an awesome Dale Keown character back in the 90’s. Good to see he’s back! Look for the overprinted Youngblood #4 for Pitt’s first appearance.

A couple of sold out/almost sold out comics from Image Comics arrive this week. Check out Nailbiter (2014 Image) #1 (sold out) and Madame Frankenstein (2014 Image) #1 (on the verge of the sold out status). Two unique books….limited quantity. Good luck.

Garfield actually makes the Hot Picks this week. This may be a first! Well America’s favorite cat makes it this week with good reason. Garfield (2012 Boom) #25 will be an anniversary issue, which will also be accompanied by a George Perez variant.  So if you have $25 to splurge, this would be a nice comic to get signed and graded. Don’t wait for an immediate return on your monies. This comic would be one to sit on for years to come. It’s a long term investment.

Iron Fist continues his origin this week in Iron Fist Living Weapon (2014) #2. I said this once on here, and I’ll say it for the hundredth time now too. Buy Marvel Premiere #15 (1974). This is Iron Fists’ first appearance and should have be archived in your collection  from years ago. Iron Fist is a good television episode (Netflix) or movie away from becoming huge. You’ve been warned….

Apparently the New 52 is threating to “change things!” The question we all collectively ask is “so soon??” Batwing (2011-) #31 will possible involve a NEW Batwing, while New 52 Futures End (2014) #1 sets everything in the not too distant future amok. What’s wrong with the present DC?

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #10 looks like a good standalone issue read. Superman has to shrink and go inside Bruce’s body to fight a germ or something. While in there, he discovers something unfathomable. Could it be that dreaded “C” word? Who knows, but must read comics here!

A few years ago I got my first ever story published by BlueWater Comics. House of Horrors #1 was the title, and the artist on my story was Stefano Cardoselli. Check out the original cover (in the scroll gallery) to Vincent Price Presents #36 (which later became House of Horrors #1 instead) by Stefano. Stefano brings it in everything he does. That’s why Necromantical (2014 Ardden) #1 is just about sold out. Stefano gives his best and it shows.

Chaos (2014 Dynamite) #1 is just about sold out at the distributor. Along with Burn the Orphanage Reign of Terror (2014) #1 and Woods (2014 Boom) #1.

After all of the Amazing Spider-Man #1 hoopla from last week we get Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #1.1. Now is this really that necessary? 1.1? Really? The same goes for Cyclops (2014 2nd Series) #1. Who is asking for a solo Cyclops book?? Once more here, Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #1………okay……..

Invest wisely.

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!

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 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!!

SPIDER-ISLAND Battles The DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU

As Manhattan sits quarantined from the rest of the Marvel Universe in Spider-Island, Shang-Chi and  Iron Fist will have to cut their way through a web of mystery, magic and mayhem in Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)! In the midst of battle, what call could be so urgent that it takes the Immortal Iron Fist and the Master of Kung Fu away from the side of The Avengers? Beware, The Bride of Nine Spiders now stalks the streets – but is she the cause or the key to a horrific plot than threatens to sink all of Spider-Island?
 
“I’ve been a fan of Shang-Chi for years, so writing Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu is great fun, especially as Shang himself gets spider-powers,” said Johnston. “Then just throw in a little mystery, some gothic horror, a guest appearance by Iron Fist… and more Kung Fu per page than any other Spider-Island book, guaranteed!”
 
Shang-Chi, Iron Fist and the Immortal Weapons enter the Marvel Universe’s darkest corners this August, only in Spider Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (of 3)!
 
SPIDER-ISLAND: DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU #1 (of 3)
Written by Antony Johnston
Art & Cover by Sebastian Fiumara
Rated T+ …$2.99
