Marvel’s new Legacy brand comes with a bevy of lenticular covers. Some of the covers leave a bit to be desired, while others will have a place within the comic collectors heart. Some may even have speculative implications. Case in point this week, A Rob Liefeld Cable #150 features the homage cover (paying homage to himself because he’s awesome like that) to New Mutants #87 (first Cable appearance). Not only will the cover create interest, but the talk of new characters and a NEW New Mutants team can give fans more of reason to buy this comic. The same can be said for the Spider-Gwen #25 lenticular cover. Eye candy, paying homage to Todd McFarlane’s Amazing Spider-Man #316 cover. Khary Randolph does the honors here to Todd. The Spider-Gwen #25 comic will be hot for other reasons too though. It’s the Gwenom craze that will help this comic sell out. It’s already trending (up-ticking) in the aftermarket.
Back in 2013, InvestComics spoke highly of Greg Pak’s Planet Hulk. We informed fans to get on top of these books because Mr. Pak has essentially created an entire new universe around the Hulk character. It’s seen then come to fruition as Planet Hulk plays a role in the new Thor Ragnarok movie. It also plays a role in returning this week in The Incredible Hulk #709…..written by GREG PAK. He’s the main reason the Hulk character is even a thought on any directors/producers mind and fans as well. Daredevil & Batman have Frank Miller, Conan has Roy Thomas, Spidey has McFarlane, Thor has Walt Simonson, Hulk has Greg Pak and on and on. It’s as simple as that. Greg Pak rewrites the Planet Hulk starting this week and comic fans should be delighted.
The end is nigh for Jane Foster? Find out the answer in The Mighty Thor #700, ‘Death of the Mighty Thor part 1’.

The Black Panther movie will arrive in a little bit and fans will have Black Panther Prelude #1 to digest as part of the leading up to the movie. Creators Will Pilgrim and Annapaola Martello. You know what this prelude comic to the movie means right? It means that Will and Annapaola have either read the script or seen the movie already. That’s a sweet gig right there.
Comic fans get a good ol’ fashioned comic book fight this week; Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan #1. Writer Declan Shalvey and artist Mike Henderson. Ding-ding!
Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi: Captain Phasma #4 will have our captain leading a new army against a new foe. All Marvel Star Wars comics are stellar. Nuff said.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
We informed our fans that The Realm #1 was sold out and you needed to grab a copy if need be. The Realm #2 comes out this week. Probably have to do the same here.
Maestros #1 from Image Comics. This story by Steve Skroce is being called a ‘masterpiece’ by writer Brian K. Vaughan. That’s some endorsement, no? Steve works the art as well alongside Dave Stewart.
Kid Lobotomy #1 (IDW Publishing). Creators; Peter Milligan and Tess Fowler.
John Wick #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Our favorite Hulk writer Greg Pak on this one. Giovanni Valletta illustrates.

It was great to see the guys (and gal) from the Scout Comics booth doing their thing at the NYCC 2017 this past weekend. Their booth was full of fans buying up their product off of the long line of various comics to choose from. This week Scout Comics releases InferNoct #1. The Eli Powell variant is already sold out. Scout Comics publishing have a knack of their new release comics selling out. That’s what happens when you put together a good product. Creators on this comic; Mina Elwell (awesome meeting her at NYCC) and Eli Powell.
The Apocalypse Girl #1 (Amigo Comics). Creators El Torres and Ramiro Borrallo.

InvestComics Spider-Man Checklist – Part 1 – Click Image

Writer Peter David and artist Mark Bagley bring the fan favorite clone Ben Reilly into his own on-going series; Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #1. Ben Reilly has a few ‘first appearances’ to look at. Amazing Spider-Man #149 (1975) is the first Spider-Clone appearance. It also happens to be Gwen Stacy’s clone origin as well. Maybe we’ll get a Spider-Gwen clone one day and this comic will be in even more demand. Web of Spider-Man #118 (1994); First appearance as Scarlet Spider. The first appearance as Spider-Man; Sensational Spider-Man #0 (1996). That’s it, those are key Ben Reilly books. If you truly believe in this character, these are the books to own. There is a funny thing we noticed about the Mark Bagley (regular cover). Some of the solicits have Scarlet Spider with a hood on and some don’t. Is this a thing? Maybe just an update of the cover solicits (with or without the hood). Either way, maybe be on the look-out for it?

Old Man Logan ‘Wolverine’ continues revisiting his past and dealing with the present as he takes on Wendigo and The Hulk for old times sake. Old Man Logan #22, written by Jeff Lemire and art by Eric Nguyen. The cover(s) from this storyline are depicting the old comics from yesteryear behind Wolverine and we love it. Cover for Old Man Logan #22 from Andrea Sorrentino.

Buy Now-No Bidding – Graded Flash Comics $40 and Less – Click Image

DC and Dynamite Entertainment team up as Batman teams up with The Shadow this Wednesday. Writer’s Scott Snyder/Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo are on the case. The two legendary comic characters reunite for the first time since a team-up stint in 1974’s Batman #259. They teamed up for the first time ever in Batman #253 (1973). Two classic books which would make for a nice addition to your collection. Batman The Shadow #1 will feature a first appearance of a new villain. More of a reason to check out this comic.

The 4 part ‘The Button’ story continues this week in Flash #21 (part 2). While we love the lenticular cover(s), we repeat, we love the lenticular cover(s), be careful of the speculative nonsense that may follow it from various sources getting on the hype train. Do not over pay for these covers. We have explained these reasons regarding variant comic book covers (special covers) throughout our Hot Picks post within the last couple of years, but in case you missed it, here it goes again. Again, we love the variant covers as much as the next fan that appreciates great art, but there is one thing a collector must keep in mind when buying the variant lenticular cover(s) coming out as part of the DC gimmick this week. The guts. If the inside of this comic has no significance within the grand scope of things for the next 2 to 5 years, then guess what? You have a pretty cover……that’s it. Again, if you like a variant cover, you should buy it, We encourage it because nice art is nice art, we get that, but do not have the thinking you are ‘investing’ or speculating on a comic that will serve any relevance in years to come. We pointed out in many of our articles to do the grading test with CGC and CBCS. If you see a nice variant cover (signed maybe too?) that is ‘rare’ and has an asking price of $150 or $300 or even $75, you should look at the top right hand corner of the graded book. Shift the eyes there. Empty? Blank? Does it say ‘Joker appearance’? ‘Harley Quinn appearance’? Well if your modern variant says only that or something similar and not ‘First appearance’ or ‘Cameo (first appearance)’, then you have been duped into the hype market. A ‘rare’ modern variant cover or a special glow in the dark/3D/lenticular comic come with the SAME guts as 10,000 other comics with a ‘regular’ cover and is basically a non-factor in the grand scheme of things. If there was a ‘rare’ modern variant/glow in the dark/lenticular of New Mutants #98, well you’re on to something. The guts have significance. The Flash #21 Lenticular cover, if it’s graded a 9.8, guess what you have, you have a neat gimmick cover that will probably state in the right hand corner; ‘The Button story begins. Jason Fabok Lenticular cover.’ (This of course is all on assuming that there is ‘no significant’ feature in this book.) As a speculator, if you’re willing to pluck down serious cash for a 9.8, then by all means do so if you think the resale value will exceed what you paid for it. If you’re looking for a collector’s piece to just hold onto, get it signed and graded yourself and enjoy it. The variant market is completely skewed right now. The horse blinders are on. Collectors of modern books must refocus. The guts, the guts matter, not just a nice cover when it comes to resale value. A nice cover will rarely sustain or outrun the first appearance book or a book of significance. Some may say, but what about the Watchmen element being thrown into the DCU right now regarding Flash #21? Isn’t that a big factor? Well yes and no. Yes for now and no for longevity. Do you really think DC will hold this Watchmen twist into its lure? Another ‘relaunch’ in 4 years perhaps? If you think this may not happen, you must be new to this sport. The guts, the guts, the guts. The end.
