DC continues to bring back many characters from obscurity. This week The Ray begins his own series in Justice League Of America The Ray #1. His first appearance was in his self titled book; The Ray #1 in 1992. This comic can be found for a couple of bucks on Ebay. Click that link and buy yourself a copy now if you believe in the Ray making a comeback. Or just buy it because Joe Quesada penciled the original series and then returned in 1994’s Ray “Rebirth” to do a few covers.
Staying on topic here about characters making their return, judging a book by its cover Superman #15 this Wednesday, Superdemon from Earth 13 looks to make his return. He first cameo appeared unnamed in Superman Beyond 3D #1 (2008). Superdemon reemerged on the variant cover of Multiversity Society Of Super-Heroes #1 (2014) by Frazer Irving. He was finally mentioned and appeared by the name ‘Superdemon’ in The Multiversity #2 (2014). And that is the Whole Superdemon checklist!
….And one more DC character coming back this week; Kamandi. With the release of Kamandi Challenge Special #1, DC will reprint Kamandi, The Last Boy On Earth #32 (1975) to its entirety. Here’s the thing with the new Kamandi book. It has a cover price of $7.99. The Kamandi, The Last Boy On Earth #32 (1975) on Ebay, the original, can be purchased at the same price or a few buck more. Why not get THAT instead of the new one?? It’s the same exact book, but better. It has the original Jack Kirby pencils, story and cover. This comic also has the retelling of Kamandi’s origin. Yes, get the original, stop being silly.

Many first will occur with the new character Mosaic from Marvel. Although we’re not completely up on our Mosaic guidebook, but Marvel says that in Mosaic #4, his first encounter with a super-hero occurs. That first hero is Spider-Man.
The biggest romance in comics in a long time continues in Spider-Gwen #16, with a stellar Robbi Rodriguez variant cover. Crossover storyline; ‘Sitting In A Tree’ part two.
Amazing Spider-Man #23 cover art Alex Ross gets a thumbs up from us. Gwen Stacy joins the bad guys? Read and find out.
Although an amazing cover by Francesco Mattina on Gamora #2, it looks like She-Hulk no?
Marvel will put the new Iron Man; Riri Williams against a seriously big time villain yet to be announced in Invincible Iron Man #3. The Stefano Caselli cover is on point.
The Captain Marvel character gets a new start….again. Mighty Captain Marvel #1, written by Margaret Stohl and art from Ramon Rosanas.

It’s been a long while since monster comics dominated the genre. At one point dinosaurs, mummies, vampires and a bevy of other monster type characters were the ‘go to’ for a sale within the industry. In today’s market, Devil Dinosaur is teaming with Moon Girl and that seems to be going well, no? This Wednesday Marvel will attempt to test this market to see if there is in fact a market for monster books. As we have stated in previous Hot Picks years ago and recently, Disney (Marvel) has yet to touch on two comic book genre’s on the big screen and television. Water and horror/monster comics. Enter one of those test markets this Wednesday with Monsters Unleashed #1. Creative firepower accompanies this book; writer Cullen Bunn and artist Steve McNiven. Should be a fun ride.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks…..

There are two types of marketing strategies in this world. There is marketing and then there is marketing. If you fall into the latter, you understand why we do most of the things we do around here. That said, there are certain companies that understand the process and some that don’t. Valiant Entertainment release their comic Divinity III Aric #1 this Wednesday with many critics complaining and harassing on various boards around the internet. Why you may ask? Well we will do a show and tell. Take a look at four of the five covers being released in this article. What do you see? Exactly. Valiant had a chance to possibly change things, but they declined to do so. Good for them. Although very similar, It’s not the same. Let fans talk and create that buzz, get them talking, sharing, complaining, commenting, it’s all a moot point. Valiant wins here no matter what. They got your attention and you’re talking about it. It’s all free publicity. It’s marketing 101 right here. Good stuff. And oh yes, we’re quite confident too that Valiant will back up their mini comic book fan mutiny against there character lookalike with a ridiculously fabulous story from Joe Harris.

InvestComics Hot Picks – Top 5 New Comic Picks #7

From: InvestComics Hot Picks #368

 

Every Tuesday/Wednesday! Here are the Top 5 NEW comics to speculate/read from this Wednesday’s new comic book day.

From this past Sunday’s InvestComics Hot Picks #368

 

Kamandi_1_InvestComicsClick on any of the RED links or the comic cover in this article to buy/bid on the comics directly from Ebay.

 

G.I. Joe Real America Hero #213 – The death of Snake Eyes story line has heated up. The second part is sold out across the board. Regular and variant covers are no longer available at Diamond distributors.

The Inhuman Special #1 – Marvel promises to have a character appear after a 75 year absence? Check out the comic to see who it is.

Star Wars #4 – As stated in this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #368, Star Wars is ultra hot right now. Be sure to stay on top of all the Star Wars comics; a first appearance is looming that will explode once again in the aftermarket.

Convergence Hawkman #1 – Kamandi, The last Boy on Earth makes an appearance. Check out InvestComics Hot Picks #368 for more details on this book. 

Convergence Justice League America #1 – Same goes here as the previous entry. 

In the regular InvestComics weekly Hot Picks articles, we have said that DC Convergence might be a precursor into a bigger picture for them. A big marketing plan to see if certain characters are called upon by fans to make more stories (**ahem money**). Maybe picking up some of the first appearances because of the reappearances by characters is an easy get. The first appearance of Kamandi, a Bronze Age comic, A Jack Kirby creation for $90 as a graded 9.6 on Ebay? That’s awesome.

InvestComics Hot Picks 368:

New Release Comics on 4/22/15 (And back issues)

 

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

A new comic book week means a new week of Convergence titles from DC. Also a new week of speculating on some of them too, besides some good reads of course. Each week InvestComics touches on the Convergence titles to give a possible heads up on what DC MAY do in the future with possible new titles or characters reemerging in the DCU. This is pure speculating here. DC may never visit some of these characters again after they appear in this epic storyline, but it’s fun to take a look at some back issues to hunt down a first appearance. Like a Captain Carrot from a couple of weeks (and months) ago here on InvestComics.

Justice_League_of_America_v.1_Annual_2 Kamandi_1_InvestComics

Convergence Hawkman #1 will visit the land of Kamandi. Kamandi hasn’t really appeared in a whole lot of books considering he was introduced in 1972’s Kamandi, The Last Boy On Earth #1. Jack “King” Kirby is the cover artist and artist/creator of the character. A wonderful Bronze Age comic to have in you collection regardless if DC ever follows up with this character.

The Detroit Justice League will appear in Convergence Justice League America #1. Check out Detroit’s baddest gang and their first appearance in Justice League of America Annual #2 (1984). This comic also happens to be the first appearance of Vibe.

Convergence Superboy and The Legion #1 will feature the group Atomic Knights. They first appeared in Strange Adventures #117 (1960).

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

And besides Convergence #3, here are the rest of the Convergence titles hitting the shelf this Wednesday; Convergence Adventures of Superman #1, Convergence Batman and The Outsiders #1, Convergence Flash #1, Convergence Green Lantern Corps #1, Convergence New Teen Titans #1, Convergence Swamp Thing #1 and Convergence Wonder Woman #1.

G.I. Joe Real America Hero #213 continues the “Death of Snake Eyes” storyline. Snake Eyes is one step closer to his comic book demise. Fans must be loving it because the comic is sold out across the board. Regular cover and variants.

With all of the Star Wars craze going on right now and with the Star Wars Marvel comic doing so well, it’s probably best to stay on top of this series and any other Star Wars related series from Marvel. The potential of any new introductions within the series will send the aftermarket into a frenzy. As proven with the heads up InvestComics gave everyone with Darth Vader #3 (since cooled off). So check out Star Wars #4 this week….

GI_Joe_213_InvestComics Star_Wars_4_InvestComics

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

The Inhuman Special #1 will be a cool book to check out. Marvel states there will be a character to appear that hasn’t for 75 years until now. That’s neat. We look forward to see who it is.

Everything Star Wars is hot, so what better time than to release a titled book like Empire Uprising #1 to confuse everyone! IDW publishing puts out this awesome Mark Waid written, Barry Kitson drawn comic this Wednesday. Incidentally, the same creative team first introduced Empire back in 2000 under the Image Comics label; Empire #1. Great stuff. A couple of more interesting titles from IDW to check out; Infinite Loop #1 and Drones #1. Also a cool comic from IDW for the little ones; Littlest Pet Shop Spring Cleaning #1. The Littlest Pet Shop #1 first came out in 2014.

Two titles from Image Comics this Wednesday to check out are Beyond Belief #1 and Kaptara #1.

Guardians of the Galaxy #26 will feature a variant Howard the Duck Nirvana cover.

I.C.E. Bayou Black Out #1 from 12 Gauge comics is a looker. I.C.E. First appeared as a free comic book day comic back in 2011.

Avengers Magazine #1 has names attached like John Buscema and Jack Kirby. It’s a must get for any comic book enthusiast. Avengers Operation Hydra #1 will also be for comic book enthusiast, but especially Avengers fans.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 8/27/14

1973237

Ultimate Spider-Man #29

Wool was optioned for a movie. That prompted issue number to be sold out and with that, Wool (2014 Cryptozoic) #2 has sold out now too. Stay close to this series for now. Remember, just because a comic book was optioned does not mean anything will ever materialize. Many times the comic market has a knee jerk reaction to the news and then many are stuck with comics that are impossible to sell. The best we do get though are great stories to read.

This week Superman (2011 3rd Series) #34 sees the introduction of the villain known as Machinist. Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. are giving the fans what they want, some new life breathe into DC’s flagship title. Is this in fact a first appearance though or just a New 52 first appearance? The Machinist first appeared in Wildstorm #1 (2006).  Same dude? Probably not.

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast continues to garner attention. The latest edition; Outcast (2014 Image) #3 comes out this week. Issue one and two sold out. Look for issue three to follow that trend.

Last week I recommended Teen Titans #16 (1982), It’s the first appearance of Captain Carrot. I was having some fun and wanted to set a trend to make the book hot. This week I will revisit the wacky, but first let me make a point…….quite a few InvestComics Hot Picks ago I explained that Marvel’s Spider-Verse saga was all a basic ploy to see which solo spider books they can possibly get off the ground and sell. Spider-Verse will bring every single Spider-Man character ever front and center. I compiled a huge Spider-Verse list of the many faces of Spider-Man. It’s a list you’d probably want to keep handy given all of the new Spider characters we’ll see popping up or getting their own comic. Like the new Spider-Woman title. How about a new Peter Porker comic? Wait Peter Porker? Yes. Check out Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #29; Spider-Ham has taken over. So expect A LOT more Spidey books and take overs to occur moving onward towards Spider-Verse, before, during and after. Now let’s get back to the wacky stuff. Peter Porker first appeared in Marvel Tails Starring Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 (1982). The Ultimate Spider-Ham first appeared in Ultimate FF #5 (2014). Awesome! Let Spider-Verse begin! And click right HERE to check out that InvestComics Spider-Verse Checklist, some great hidden gems in there.

[scrollGallery id=368]

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #5 will focus on the character Cyborg. I have recommended DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) countless times throughout the years. This comic of course features the first appearance of the New Teen Titans and several new characters. It’s a very obtainable book, not scarce at all. The main reason for the prices to be where they are at. Cyborg first appeared in DCP #26 and he’s also going to be in the Superman vs. Batman film. Will we also get a Teen Titans spin off from this film besides the Justice League? Most likely yes, so buckle in and get ready for DC Comics Presents to become an even hotter book way down the line somewhere. It’s going to be a way for Warner Bros. to attract that younger core audience. The book is an absolute bargain right now with average RAW prices on Ebay going in the $60 range. A 9.2 graded sold for $135 and a 7.5 sold for $81. So here’s what you do. Buy yourself a high grade raw copy. Get George Perez and Marv Wolfman to sign it (get a witness). Grade it, and you have yourself a wonderful resale right now, but more so in the future.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) First Appearance of The New Teen Titans.

Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #16 will give a semi-Superman history lesson told by Kamandi. This history class won’t be a bore! Various artists contribute to the different Supermen throughout the years. Should be a great nostalgic look and read.

The Fox channel has a hit on their hands with the show Bob’s Burgers. Now that hit series will become a comic book for the first time; Bobs Burgers (2014) #1. Look for the Midtown Comics Exclusive for only $10. Get some of the cast to sign it. Have it witnessed of course and grade it. It’ll be a unique book to resell to a Bob’s Burgers fan.

Face Value #1 from Autism at Face Value brings the topic of autism front and center. Heroes with autism. It’s an important awareness comic that everyone should check out. If you’d like to learn more about autism and donate go right HERE to the Autism Research Institution.

Other comics you definitely need to check out this week are Wayward (2014 Image) #1, Pop (2014 Dark Horse) #1, Jaegir (2014) #0, Hero Cats (2014 Action Lab) #1, Brainstorm (2014) #1, Shinobi Ninja Princess (2014) #1, and Sundowners (2014) #1.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=207] There are certainties within the comic book collecting genre. If you do not know all of them, then here is one that you should know and if you don’t, well then you need to find another hobby. One valuable certainty is any comic book that contains the words “Jack Kirby” and “First appearance” in the same sentence. Now with that, he has been a part of a couple of clunkers, but it doesn’t matter. He’s a legend and legends that create from their mind always have the potential of something great. Yes Jack has created Kobra, Kamandi, Destroyer Duck, Machine Man and Devil Dinosaur to name a few. On the flip side, character like Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Silver Surfer have all been synonymously connected to Jack. So what’s with the clunkers you ask? Find a copy, a high grade copy and send it in to get graded. A 9.8 would command a lot more than what you paid for that comic ungraded. Besides, as said earlier it’s a first appearance created by a legend. It needs to be in your collection. Why the Jack Kirby talk at the start of this week’s article you ask? Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #15 will bring aboard Orion and the New Gods. The legend Jack Kirby created Orion and the New Gods in 1971’s New Gods #1. This comic does not fall under the clunker category, but does fall in-between the high status and clunker status. This is not by any means to understate or discount the importance of any of these characters, but in many ways one can calculate the importance of a character within their respective universes simply by the supply/ demand it receives. Again, thought process here only applies on the collection side of things. If one feels that OMAC plays a big part of their universe then by all means that’s great! But as far as the collector’s side of things, that’s a bit different. On EBay right now, a 9.6 graded New Gods #1 can be yours for only $445. That’s a nice chunk of change, but incomparable to the Doctor Doom or Magneto creations. That said, a New Gods #1 graded issue is a fantastic buy on any level because it’s done by one of the most iconic figures within the comic book industry ever, period.

Switching gears completely here with the arrival of Avengers Arena (2012) #2 this week we get the promise of more death! Marvel really figured a fantastic thing out here folks. With all of the nonsense going on over the last few years of killing off characters and having it essentially mean nothing these days because it’s done so frequently, Marvel has created a comic that offs characters (granted most are third rate) at a nice pace every issue. Yes it’s Marvel’s version of the Hunger Games, but who cares where the idea originated from? Characters are fighting to the death in every issue and we all have a front seat. Let’s find the birth of these characters before they find their possible early demise. And also remember, you may be getting the first appearance of the winner as well! So we have the Deathlocket (who first appeared in the Avengers Arena #1 issue) pinned against two opponents; Hazmat, who’s first appearance came in Avengers Academy #1 (2010) and Cammi; her first appearance was in Drax the Destroyer #1 (2005). InvestComics is with team Cammi. Go Cammi!

Marvel once again turns back the clock and grabs the U-Foes? Yes in Venom (2011 Marvel) #28 this week the U-Foes make their appearance. The first time they checked in was way back in 1980’s Incredible Hulk #254. Cheap book to own if you’re interested.

Marvel goes back into their vault once again this week to find Monica Rambeau roaming the pages of Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #8. Who is Monica you might ask? Monica came onto the scene as the “All New-All Different” Captain Marvel back in Amazing Spider-man Annual #16 (1982). The biggest difference in Monica as Captain Marvel turned out that she was African American. Ridiculous right? But didn’t we somehow go through the same absurdity recently with, this time a MAJOR FLAGSHIP character in the Marvel universe?

DC Comics offer up an all new “something” at the end of Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #15 and also offer up an interesting titled number one issue with JSA Liberty Files The Whistling Skull (2012) #1. Both worth a look to see what’s what.

And while on topic of number one issues, check out Executive Assistant Iris (2012 Volume 3) #1 and Number 13 (2012 Dark Horse) #1 this week.
