Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading. Go back to the other places selling you the farm. This is NOT the place for you. We’re here to have fun and not lie to you. Thank you and enjoy!

Once Our Land #1 – Another good story from Scout Comics and another short print run is causing some waves in the aftermarket. This sold out comic will be sought after like the other very very successful Scout Comic; Henchgirl. Henchgirl has blown up on Ebay and InvestComics had your back since issue one with that series.

Norman #2 – We asked that you check out Norman #1 as it was sold out before it hit the new comics shelf. Interesting sadistic story. The same applies here with issue number two. Titans Comics has a hit on their hands because Norman #2 is also sold out. Short print run here will put it in demand.

Betty & Veronica #1 – Adam Hughes begins his writing and art on this new Archie series. 20+ variants are available for your picking. The regular Hughes cover rocks in our opinion and is the best of the overzealous variant print run. Regardless of variants, this series will will something for both the reader and speculator. Archie Comics hits a home run here.

Snotgirl #1 – This awesome title alone will turn heads on Wednesday. Look for this title to be a possible sleeper. New artist Leslie Hung looks like a winner and writer Bryan Lee O’Malley will give us a story that entails a beautiful woman, a social media star, with an allergy problem. A booger problem. So gross, yet so inviting.

Brickleberry #1 – The Dynamite Entertainment B&W variant offering of this comic is sold out. A good read in store for us.

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).

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

IC 100 Club Pick: Wolverine Origins #1 (CGC 9.8) Signed by Joe Quesada. Granted this comic doesn’t really hold any big significance in the collectors market, but it is an upper grade Wolverine comic signed by Joe Quesada for only $84.96! That’s a great buy. Get it before it’s gone.

InvestComics gave a heads up to readers and speculators back in January regarding recent news from Marvel within the past few days. How do we know or do this so often? We’re good at this. We gave our fans a heads up in January’s InvestComics Hot Picks #409 (and MANY times thereafter) about Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #1. Not so much about how awesome this series would be, but about the supporting cast. We said (again, in MANY articles following HP #409) that Deadpool was setting up his crew members for possible books themselves. Well, it’s happening. Solo, Slapstick, and Foolkiller will be getting their own titles. Not many of their first appearances available on Ebay since we tipped everyone off, but try anyway, click those links or comic covers. Anyway, back to this coming Wednesday. Deadpool And The Mercs For Money Vol 2 #1 will hit. We say pick this comic and series up because it’s going to be a blast like the first volume.
New Stormtroopers and a new artist; Jorge Molina. Star Wars #21. We’re right there.
Spider-Man #6, Miles Morales chooses a side in Civil War II.
If you’re a Namor fan and are still reeling from his untimely death, worry no more. Squadron Supreme #9 will be your prelude to ‘Finding Namor’. Not Nemo silly….Namor. 

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

The new Batman title is sort of picking up where the last series left off. Not in the sense of storyline, but in regards to the demand and attention it’s getting. Writer Tom King and artist’s David Finch/Matt Batt Banning are maintaining a level of interest for the readers as well as some speculators. We will keep informing speculators that we think it’s just a question of time before Gotham and Gotham Girl get their own solo or team-up title. These are early appearances by the hot new duo in Gotham. Batman #3 out this Wednesday, get them while you can.
Harley Quinn is the focal point in the last issue of New Suicide Squad. Check out New Suicide Squad #22 and see how it all ends…..for now.
DC’s Justice League #1 comes with creative firepower. Bryan Hitch writes and Tony Daniel draws the pictures.

Does it get any better, seriously, than Betty & Veronica #1 this Wednesday? Adam Hughes writes and pencils this awesomeness from Archie Comics. A ridiculous amount of variants to choose from, 20+ at last count, but our fav is the regular Adam Hughes cover!
Dynamite Entertainment’s Brickleberry #1 looks interesting. Definite check out on the shelf material. Remember, no reading comics by the new comics! Glance through….they’re watching you.
The new Image Comics title will have all the new comic buyers turning their heads and saying, ‘huh?’ out loud. Check out Snotgirl #1. Yes that’s right, Snotgirl. Not a typo. Not Shotgirl, Snot. As in booger. A gorgeous female lead character with an allergy problem. Yes for real. This is a definite pick-up on Wednesday.
Valiant Entertainment did extremely well with their first Faith mini-series. Now witness Faith’s first ongoing series ever with Faith Vol 2 #1. This series will fair well with fans, they’ve taken a tremendous liking to the Faith character. Look for the introduction of a new villain in this issue as well. Plenty of great variants to choose from.

We have informed you about Henchgirl (Scout Comics) since the number one issue. We remind you every month how we called this one. Now it looks like Henchgirl will be headed to Dark Horse. Henchgirl #9 comes out this Wednesday and it’s sold out already. With Henchgirl coming from Scout Comics this week comes another sold out comic; Once Our Land #1. Good luck getting this book at cover price.

Then there is this little boy named Norman we warned you about (Norman #1) last month. A sadistic-psychopath little boy that kills people. Titan Comics releases Norman #2 and this is sold out already.
Action Lab/Danger Zone continue to put out quality/fun comics every week. Their new release Oblivion #1 is no exception. Tim Seeley writing with artist Romina Moranelli. Looks like that George Takei variant image cover will be in demand too.

Uncanny Inhumans #11 – Well, we’ll say it. We told you so. This comic is sold out across the board and has its aftermarket burners on. Look for some high prices on Ebay for those who did not get it on their pull list at their local comic shop. That’s unless you read the InvestComics Hot Picks #430 article and clicked a buy it now on Ebay. Prices bidding around $8 – $16 already. We told you to pick one up…….

Grayson Annual #3 – We also alerted Harley Quinn collectors that she’ll be appearing in this comic this week. Guess what? It’s sold out!

Spider-Gwen Annual #1 – Setting up some future story lines for Spider-Gwen happens right here. Spider-Gwen fans be on alert.

Captain Marvel #6 – As we said in the Hot Picks article, Marvel Comics seems to be setting up Carol Danvers as the premiere character within their universe. It may all start here. Just a speculative thought.

Deathstroke Annual #2 – A new villain named Balkan joins the fray.

There is a very big hyper-machine running behind a new character getting their own book in a few months. His name is Mosaic. Mosaic #1 is being pushed by Marvel as the next big thing (character) since sliced bread, but InvestComics is not going to give into the hype….just yet. A comic coming this week will be the first appearance of that “hot” Marvel character Mosaic. We are 99.999999% sure that other speculation sites and wannabe speculators will tell you to buy this comic it’s going to be so HOT! Maybe it will be, right out of the gate, but there are so many mitigating factors going into this week’s Uncanny Inhumans #11. Will Mosaic play a key role in the Marvel Universe for years to come? Anyone remember Sentry? Will Mosaic play a key role in another characters life? A brother, a son, a reincarnation? Will Mosaic ‘click’ with the fans long term? See Spider-Gwen or Gwenpool, but not Silk as much. Will the character actually have substance to make him interesting enough for fans to come back and or demand to see him more within the Marvel U? It has taken literally decades for Werewolf By Night #32 (Moon Knight) to earn some respect. Partial thanks to InvestComics for pushing that particular book for the last 12 years. The basic point here is not to go all in by paying premium prices for a first appearance of Mosaic if you have no idea where this characters’ future lies within the Marvel U. The easiest call to make these days is the new female characters Marvel introduces. They seem to jump out and kick major as* in the aftermarket quick. The female counter parts however are a bit more touch and go sometimes. Mosaic is the next Marvel character to be pushed in an aggressive way, to which does not always equate to speculator gold. Sometimes it equates to a huge bust. We’ll have to do a wait and see here for a bit, but for now, Uncanny Inhumans #11 has all eyes on it this week. Buy a copy and make your own judgment as to whether or not YOU want to dig in with Mosaic. Don’t think too long though or you’ll have to wait for a second print, thus missing that possible easy flip. This comic will be completely sold out before new comic book day Wednesday.

Fans of Spider-Gwen may want to keep an eye out on the Spider-Gwen Annual #1 comic this week. Marvel is setting up Spider-Gwen’s near future right here.
We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. We informed readers that the Spider-Man Deadpool series was going to be huge. We told readers to pick up that Spider-Man Deadpool #1 issue, it’s now headed to it’s sixth printing. Check out the all-star issue this week; Spider-Man Deadpool #6.
Last month fanboys got their panties in a bunch because Steve Rogers uttered two very bad words at the end of his debut issue. Lets see if Captain America Steve Rogers #2 brings some clarity or sends the fanboys into more of a tizzy. Maybe Marvel will add fuel to the fire and have the fanboys daring to stop buying Marvel comic books! Been there, done that. Deep breath dudes, breathe.

The Amazing Spider-Man And Silk Spider(Fly) Effect #4 story will have both Spidey and Silk reminiscing about that fateful day in the science fair where they were both bit by the same spider. Ah, good ol’ times! And that Ryan Stegman cover is killer.
It looks as though Marvel is trying to put Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) front and center in their universe. Good deal, we dig it. Captain Marvel #6 will feature Carol in a defining type moment in her hero career. Be there to witness it.

Harley Quinn appearance alert! Harley will make an appearance in Grayson Annual #3.
Deathstroke Annual #2 will introduce a villain named Balkan.
Disclaimer; we’re not crapping on this series, but just stating facts via the social media non-presence and the overall quietness of fans. We warned speculators from the outset. Do not get too vested in the third installment. The colossal failure/delayed Dark Knight III hits its fifth issue (Dark Knight III The Master Race #5). Maybe sales are good for DC with this series, but fans are NOT really talking about the third go-around here. Delays have killed any momentum the series may have had. All that said, a Midtown Comics Greg Capullo variant looks snazzy! And of course you have the Jim Lee variant coming in at $550. Unbelievable to us how JUST a cover, a NEW comic, with the SAME insides/story as ANY of the other 10 variants commands $550. **The fanboy screams** “but it’s a 1 in 300” (or whatever the ratio is), we don’t care. Spend your money by clicking HERE (Bronze Age Comics) instead.

A lot to choose from regarding the indie market this week. So many, but here are a few to definitely check out!
Action Lab Entertainment books to check out this Wednesday; Zoe Dare vs The Disasteroid #1 and Vampblade #5 (Danger Zone). The Vampblade #5 cover is a hilarious parody of the Rom character. A must see. Fantastic job here by Winston Young.
The awesome Eric Powell writes and draws Hillbilly #1 (Albatross Exploding).
Black Mask follows up their hit book; 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank with the second issue. They also hit fans with Jade Street Protection Services #1. Written by Katy Rex and art by Fabian Lelay.

Thor #158

Thor #158 – Click To Buy Now

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: Thor #158 (1968) 8.0. This beauty is a graded 8.0 and it’s $90. The significance of the book is twofold. First, it’s an early retelling of Thor’s origin and second it’s written and drawn by Jack Kirby. An early piece of Thor’s history up for grabs here.

DC is trying to dethrone Marvel Comics with the worse title for a comic book. Marvel has ‘Totally Awesome Hulk’ and now DC will have Suiciders King Of HELL.A. #1 coming this Wednesday.  The variant is sold out and it will probably be a great story from Lee Bermejo. That title though……..

Aquaman #50 will introduce Aquawoman. Well sort of. Unless someone is counting the Multiversity Aquawoman first appearing in Countdown Presents The Search For Ray Palmer #1 (2008) or the African-American Aquawoman in Earth 2 #18 (2014) as the first appearance. Otherwise, Aquaman #50 coming this Wednesday will be the first Aquawoman that kind of counts more so than the other two. Looks like DC will be taking a page right out of the Marvel way and start with the whole gender changing character thing. Yes it’s been done time and time again over the course of decades and decades, but Marvel has found a knack for making the female hero and gender change (Thor/Wolverine/Gwenpool) character interesting. DC will jump into it now probably too. remember DC, style counts, but writing is more important.

SKYBOUND

Skybound has signed an exclusive film deal with Universal. The should ignite some speculation concerning the current Skybound catalog.  Here are my pics:

Beyond Invincible and the Walking Dead there are other comics produced by the Skybound imprint that are pretty darn good!

Witch Doctor Preview #0

The medical horror comic series from Brandon Seifert first appears in this preview.  The subsequent mini is worth a look also.

1069837

Invincible #43

OK there are so many Invincible books to pick ( including many others from other Image titles like Noble Causes, Savage Dragon, Tech Jacket, MOTU etc.)   Issue 43 is one I have not mentioned before though.  Anissa appears on the cover to issue 44 and she has become an infamous Invincible antagonist.  But the cover to issue 44 appears at the conclusion to issue 43.

Birthright #1 ( NYCC )

This is my favorite title from Skybound and it is the hardest cover to find!

Clone

I thought this one was dead in the water especially since Orphan Black has a similar concept but according to the Skybound’s deal this is still in development.

Walking Dead 103 variant and remark DF variant ( first appearance of Clone series )

Issue 1 variant for Clone

261699_20130618012007_large

Others to look at:  Thief of ThievesManifest Destiny, Ghosted, Brit, Science Dog

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Lexus SDCC (First Melinda May)

If you haven’t been watching Agents then you are still missing out.  I keep telling people this because the show has become must see TV for Marvel fans. Filled with obscure Marvel U references and gripping action, the show is both fun and part of the larger Marvel film world.  Though Coulson is a fan favorite and Daisy/Sky/Quake has made issue 2 and 5 of Secret Wars worth some cash it is Melinda May who is increasing become the show’s powerhouse character.

Unwritten #12

Izombie is a hit with viewers and as a result House of Mystery Annual 1, issue 1a and 1b have seen serious increases  in cost.  Unbeknownst to many Izombie was previewed here too!

STAR WARS SPECULATION

Here is yet another reason to suggest the SB paperback-first appearance of Lando who is getting his own comic!

Star Wars Tales 23 ( photo cover ) is the first appearance of Revan.  Kylo Ren’s costume sure looks similar to the EU character.

23845_20060112163339_largefirst revan

Star Wars: Clone Wars 3 ( First Captain Rex )

One of my favorite characters from Star Wars is Captain Rex and it was just announced that he will be returning on S2 or Rebels! THis is his first comic appearance and the cover is sick!

Galaxy Quest: Global Warning 1

One of the greatest cosmic comedy films ever is coming to TV via Paramount!  There are a limited number of comics available.  This one is a key.

138743_20080905060604_large

COVER OF THE MONTH

Suicide Squad 67

Other than issues 1,6,23,49 there aren’t too many comics from this series worth collecting.  When DC decided to resurrect certain titles for final issues during the Blackest Night crossovers fans were treated to one of the better concepts the company has ever come up with.  This one just might be the best SS cover I have ever seen!

Aliens 1 of 6 ( Dark Horse )

Damn if it ain’t a great time to be comic lover.  So District 9 director Neil Blomkamp is going to revisit the Alien franchise.  You must be thinking, oh yea I have heard that crap before.  But here’s the good news.  He’s going to start his sequel right after Aliens.  Ripley fans rejoice!  Nah.  I’m waiting for the return of Hicks!  This is his first comic appearance!

IMG_4995

Note:  This is the first Newt appearance as well but not Ripley!  That honor goes to a publication by Heavy Metal.

Macross 1

Die hard fans probably have this already but with plans for a live adaptation it’s going to become even harder to find than it  already is.

All you Need is Kill/Terra Formars FCBD 2014

Takashi Miike is a sick director in more ways that one.  Don’t believe me, watch Gozu.  So when I found out he’s adapting the ultra-violent Terra Formars I had to find the first comic appearance:

Amazing Spider-Man 649 ( First Tron Suit )

So many wonderful versions of Spider-Man have been included in Slott’s epic Spiderverse story.  Good luck finding 650 with that sick Tron suit cover.  But you can easily find this one and there’s a cover pic of 650 in the back!

_______________________________________________________________________________

I have been waiting some time to include the following list of comics.  None are really connected to any current movie or film releases.  They are simply some of my favorite issues:

Secret Warriors 4 ( First appearance of Manifold )

The hype is on other books from this series ( see Quake and Leviathan ) but Manifold is easily the best character to come out of this excellent series

scret warriors 4 first manifold

Star Wars Galaxy 3 ( One of only a few appearances by Jaxxon )

Jaxxon, Usagi Yojimbo, The Maxx  and Bucky O Hare are my choices for best comic book hares and rabbits.  Jaxxon has a limited number of appearances.  This in one.

Secret Avengers 6 ( First Descendants )

One of the better modern Marvel stories centers around the Descendants and their inevitable ascension to glory.  All they needed to do was eliminate all of humanity.  Thanks for stumbling onto their subterranean homer Secret Avengers!

Secret Avengers 6 ( First Descendants )

Sabrina 28 ( rare Sonic Appearance )

Yes I collect rare Sonic appearances and this is one of the toughest to find in the wild.  People beat on Archie comics and this one suffered the same fate as most.  The point here-don’t give comics to children ( just kidding! )

sabrina 28 sonic appearance

 

Mighty World of MARVEL 16 ( Scarlet Witch Cover, Rocket Raccoon appears )

I am always on the hunt for more RR appearances.

Mighty World Marvel 16 Rocket Raccoon

Captain Britain 19 ( First Lance Hunter )

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets better and better but the next season is make or break for the show.  Lance isn’t quite a fan favorite but his first is very difficult to find.

R. Grampa is one of my favorite cover artists.  Here are three covers my collection can’t do without:

Comic Broker Report – January 2015 Part 3

Here’s a few more to look for ( Other than Avengers 6 and the first Toyman they should be easy to find )

Shadows and Light 1 ( First Red Room )

426181a0-7d96-0132-43b7-0ebc4eccb42f

Agent Carter and the Avengers 2 trailer both appear to contain elements of the Red Room.  If you don’t what that is it’s time to look it up.  As far as I can tell this is the first appearance.

Avengers 6 (First Baron Zemo/ First Masters of Evil )

 This one is going to be pricey but with Zemo cast for Cap 3 you better hope you have one!

Comic Broker – January 2015 (part 2)

Star Wars Galaxy Magazine 2 ( Sealed )

There have been some rumblings over at Fox concerning the return of The X-Files starring the original investigating team.  If that happens the original series will start to get hot.  At one time the early issues of the Topps series were quite valuable.  Also I  have mentioned this SW mag  before.  Now is the time to buy cheap!

Notable issues: Hero illustrated 22 ( sealed only ) contains X-Files -1, X-Files Comic Digest December 1995 Photo Variant, X-Files 1,2,40 a & b,41 a & b

Alias 24

The Purple Man will be coming to TV.  His first appearance is in a pretty expensive comic but his first appearance is Alias is quite easy to find and that is probably where he will show up first.

The Incredible Hulk 100 ( Second appearance of Amadeus Cho )

Callsheet 66 puts a Doctor Cho in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Is he still the seventh smartest person on Earth?  If so Amazing Fantasy Volume 2 #15 is going to blow up.  The reason I have yet to mention it?  It’s already been hyped for a while and collectors have been holding for some time.  Below is his second appearance and this comic is hard to find because of the popularity of Planet Hulk.

69147_20061102095608_large

Iron Man: I am Iron Man TPB

Back in 2008 Walmart decided to include a special promotional comic in one of its Iron Man DVDs.  That comic just happens to be the first appearance of  Fan Favorite Agent Coulson.  There’s another problem.  It is impossible to locate a copy and the ones I have found are in horrible condition.  If you want to read Security Measures the only place to own it in print is in this forgotten trade.

Eternal Warrior 8

Have you been reading Archer and Armstrong?   Trust me when I say it’s worth a read and so is issue 1 of Ivar the  Timewalker.  This is his first appearance.

Sleepwalker 8 ( JC Penny Reprint )

I cannot believe the recent hype for Sleepwalker.  He was referenced in BH6 an now he is slated to play an important role in the end of the Ultimate Universe!   But Sleepwalker already appeared in a film!  Issue 8 specifically was mistakenly used in the film True Romance.  This is the JC Penny Reprint and it is rare!

Secret Warriors 11

Secret_Warriors_Vol_1_11

I was expecting Hydra to cause Agent Carter all the problems a secret agent can handle. But it appears the secret organization  Leviathan has taken  on that role.  So who or what  is Leviathan? Leviathan’s are the Chitauri ships first seen in Nova and the  Avengers film. But there is also an evil organization from Secret Warriors called Leviathan. Are they connected? Time will tell. Buy this now though. It’s cheap and if Quake become a fan favorite on TV, how long do you think it will be before more of her early appearances dry up?

Justice League of America 10

Justice_League_of_America_Vol_1_10
Constantine continues to impress and now it’s been announced that the villainous Felix Faust will be making his TV debut. Here is his first appearance.

Tales of Suspense 46

index

Agent Carter was surprisingly good. With nods to The Whizzer and Roxxon, the writers seem set on using Marvels rich history to fill episodes. Even Anton Vanko ( father of Whiplash!) makes it into the mix. This is his first appearance as Crimson Dynamo 1!

The Sword of Shannara

1165955

To date this is the only comic adaptation of any work from Brooks epic fantasy series, soon to be an MTV show.

The only other adaptation was a serialized comic strip by Gray Morrow from February to April, 1978. Unfortunately it’s hard to tell what papers printed the Best Seller Showcase. At this point I can confirm the Birmingham News and Chicago Tribune as publishers. The Best Seller Showcases were syndicated comic versions of novels by some renown authors. It didn’t last. To date they are the only comic version of The Sword of Shannara but it’s  likely that any newspapers that are found will be in poor condition. It is interesting to note that the original art for Morrow’s work was auctioned off in the mid 2000’s.

Trip Comic Book 12, 1978

index

Overstreet actually lists these so they do exist. Apparently issues ( 12-19? ) collect Chicago Tribune comics. If this does exist it would be the only reprinting of The Sword of Shannara in comic book format.

Note: Heavy Metal printed excerpts from The Sword of Shannara in early issues with art by Hildebrandt!

A recent post within an online speculation community inspired this next group. EC comics continue to rise in value as high grade copies become increasingly more difficult to find. Though the next few works are not comics they are key for both collectors and comic historians.

Ladies Home Journal November 1943

LadiesHomeJournalNovember1953Cover

Frederick Wertham is a historical enemy of  Sequential art. His book, Seduction of the innocent ( a comic collectible in its own right ) set comics back for decades. The mass hysteria it caused pretty much gave EC the knockout blow. There were a few publications that predated his novel and they are bonafide comic collectibles.

Reader’s Digest May 1954

Readers Digest August 1948

Taking from Seduction of the Innocent we begin to get an understanding of Wertham’s misguided view comics.

To my knowledge this is Wertham’s first publish work on Comics.

Fantastic Universe January 1956 ( first Minority Report )

first minority report
With a Show based on PKD’s powerful sci-fi masterpiece coming soon it’s inevitable that collectors will seek out early publications.

Rumors surrounding the upcoming Dr. Strange film have hinted at the possibility of the introduction of parallel universe into the Marvel films universe. Since Reed Richards is locked up by another studio how else would they possibly introduce the Negative Zone and why is the zone important? In Civil War Reed creates a prison for unregistered heroes called Prison/Project 42. As Cap 3 is titled Civil War it’s time to start thinking about important comics related to the event. Key issues concerning the prison included:

and Fantastic Four/Foes 5 ( first appearance of the prison )

Another odd rumor for Batman v. Superman puts the KGBeast in the mix!  God I hope this happens.  At one time this comic could not be bought cheap.  Now it should be no problem.

20665_20070116070545_large

Aquaman 35 ( first appearance of Black Manta )

5555_20051017133700_large

Setting up the Aquaman film is going to part of  Zack Snyder’s plan and who is going to challenge the king of the oceans?  This one won’t be easy to find and even in poor condition it’s gonna set you back a few bucks.

Batman Annual 2 ( first Eric Border )

I cannot say much about this without spoiling the surprise!

The rumor of the president’s death in Batman v. Superman have some speculating that Lex’s grand design might center around taking the presidency for himself.  If this proves to be the case look for these to get hot:

Adventures of Superman 581, President Luthor Secret Files, Superman 162-165, Man of Steel 108-110,  Action Comics 773

He was elected in the Lex 2000 one-shot.

Iron Man vs Whiplash 1b ( First appearance of Igor Vanko? )

The Agent Carter series has been busy casting all sorts of crazy Marvel characters but this one might be the strangest.  Only mentioned by his son Whiplash in Iron Man 2 it appears that we will see just how the interaction between Howard Stark and Igor really played out!  As far as I can tell he first appeared here:

Comic Broker Report – November 2014

Here’s a small sampling of the comics I like this month and no I am not spending money on the insane cover price DC is asking for the Harley annual that smells like weed.

The Avengers 170,171

Looking for Ultron keys?  Scoop up these Perez Classics before it’s too late.

ssAvengers_Vol_1_171

Ultron doesn’t appear in the Avengers again until 202.

 

Fantastic Four 53 ( First Ulysses Klaw )

That sure looks like Klaw in the Avengers 2 trailer and he’s not the only reason to hunt down this key Black Panther book ( first Vibranium! )  The market is already wise to this one so prices are going to be high but it is a pretty safe bet.  Ya might be tempted to sell now with Marvel’s big phase 3 news but Black Panther key books are only going to rise in value  due to the broad appeal of this character.

ff 53 first u klaw

 

Fantastic Four 173, 174 ( First Counter-Earth )

Upcoming events from Marvel look to incorporate their own multiverse like story lines.  The High Evolutionary created one of those worlds here.

imagesff 174 first counter-earth

 

SUICIDE SQUAD:

Let’s get a head start on the Suicide Squad film speculation.  Here are the first appearances of some of the more obscure members:

First Multiplex

firestorm 2 first multiplex

 

First Mindboggler

I cannot believe how many Firestorm comics are fast becoming key DC books!

firestorm 29 first mindboggler

 

First Jaculi

First Vixen

God this is an awful cover!

action 521 first vixen

Other Key Suicide Comics:  Vol.1 1,23,49

 

And some other last minute comics…

 

Spider-Man Summer Sampler 2012 ( First Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel )

Are you looking for the spot where Carol Danvers appeared as Captain Marvel for the first time?  She appeared on the cover to this freebee months before Avenging Spider-Man 9 and issue one of the regular series.

567653

Silver Surfer 44 ( First Infinity Gauntlet )

With the announcement of the Infinity War films Marvel has thrown down the gauntlet for speculators!  While others are throwing away money on comics like the Infinity War 1-6 series ( which might just prove to have no connection the films other than the title ) I’m betting on cheap back issues like this.

Comic Broker Report – Second Appearances

Serious collectors whom I speak with usually frown upon the 2nd appearance but like the recent popularity of reprints like Action Comics 1, Amazing Fantasy 15, certain Marvel Milestones and others it shows the continuing evolution of what makes a  comic desirable.  Some of the Action Comics 1 reprinst are fairly tough to track down.  Add a low printing and a craving from collectors and sales take off…

So do you want to stay ahead of market trends?  Start hoarding these:

Nightwing ( Dick Grayson )

So I have been told that the annual is Nightwing’s second appearance but issue 45 was released in August of 1984 and issue 44 in July.  I cannot find a release date for the annual so until I do I am going with 45 as Nightwing’s second appearance.  It’s important to note that Comic Collector 3 predates 44 and does show Nightwing in Costume.  That could make it the true first appearance of Nightwing and 44 his second.  Wow that’s a bit confusing.  Just buy them all.

405_20050924143112_large54614_20060929090950_large

Notable Comics:  The Comic Collector 3 predates Teen Titans 44, DC Sampler 2 ( September 1984 )

Cable

New Mutants 88

Cable has never looked as good thanks to Mcfarlane not that other chump.

4685_20060818161508_large

Notable comics:  New Mutants 86; he appears  at the end in a preview panel for next month’s issue!, Amazing Spider-Man 336 is his first appearance outside of a New Mutants Comic.

Venom

ASM 315

Ok so ASM 299 is considered a cameo making 300 his first appearance and this comic his second:

13117_20051126171121_large

Notable Comics: Web of Spider-Man 18,24  and if you collect Foreign comics:

228072_20111023111826_large

X-23

With rumors that she may take over as Wolverine it’s time to revisit her limited key books:

Nyx 4 is her second.

231_20060316091233_large

Notable Comics: X-Men 450 ( newsstand ), Nyx 5, Might Marvel Must Haves

45584_20111231160112_large

Domino

2674945-x_force__1991_2002_1st_series__008

As X-Force 11 creeps up in price due to the fact that many believe it to be her first appearance it has become clear that a market correction needs to be made.  Her first appearance is on the cover of New Mutants 98 even though it is a copycat Domino.  So if her likeness first appears in NM 98 then why are so many bent on believing her first appearance to be in X-Force 11?  X-Force 8 is her 2nd.

Note:  There has been no conformation that she will be appearing in the Deadpool film.

This is an article I will continue to update especially if I get requests to add characters.

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 3)

This month I am smashing together a selection of comics I believe are worth buying at cheap prices if you can find them.  As always suggestions are appreciated and I will attempt to answer any questions or make any necessary revisions.

Like any investments comics represent a risk if you are looking to resell for profit.  Read the disclaimer under Hot Picks if you need further information.

 

2000 A.D. 377 ( First Judge Fargo )

347577-19752-126846-1-2000-a-d

Here’s a way they can show Karl Urban’s face in a Dredd sequel and give the legendary Judge an origin within a sequel.  All they need to do is cinematically un- retconn the retconn of Judge Fargo’s face as show in this issue.  Fargo and Dredd’s DNA are the same.  As fans know it just ain’t cool to show Dredd’s face.  This is the only time it was done.

Essential Sandman 4

This hard to find reprint of Lucifer’s first has yet to make a blip on collector’s radars.  When it becomes clear that Sandman 4 is out of reach in both availability and price this one should rise in value.

Essential_Vertigo_-_Sandman_4

Notable addition:

Youngblood 3 ( First appearance of Supreme )

So the infamous creator of Deadpool has recently teased a Supreme film on Twitter. It appears that studios are interested in another of his creations.  This overprinted issue features Supreme’s first appearance.  As we have learned from NM 98, overprinting doesn’t seem to matter in the marketplace if the character is in demand.

afec4cb9-3670-4b76-a87b-f460a00d39d3_tn

Notable additions:

The Moore issue has many reprints that are more rare than the reg edition I have pictured below.

GLA 1 ( 2nd Squirrel Girl )

Recently her first appearance has been quietly selling for decent money on Ebay.  She’s a fan favorite with few first appearances.  2nd appearances are all the rage right now so here is hers.

2nd squirrel girl

Marvel Graphic Novel 18 ( First Agent Dooley )

Marvel_Graphic_Novel_Vol_1_18

One of my favorite actors, Shea Whigham has been cast to play this obscure S.H.I.E.L.D  agent in the upcoming Agent Carter series.  To date this is his only appearance and it’s a tough one to find.

ASM 685b ( Fredzilla appearance )

Big Hero 6 alert!  Characters from the upcoming film have few appearances outside of the mini.  This is one and it’s a difficult variant to track down.

3548529-685-variant fredzilla

Star Wars Tales 4 ( First Ben Skywalker )

As the new film release approaches I will be randomly mentioning key issues that have had some movement on the back issue marketplace.  To my knowledge this is Ben’s first and only.

SWT 4 first ben skywalker

Here is some additional Deadpool speculation.  Supporting characters can drive up prices ( See X-Force 2 ).  These two guys are popular amongst Deadpool readers but there is no guarantee that they will ever be in the film.

Cable & Deadpool 38 ( First Bob Agent of Hydra! )

88564_20070322012315_large

Cable 3 ( First appearance of Weasel )

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 2)

 THE COMIC BROKER’S REPORT – September 2014 pt. 2

Reaction to this month’s article has been about as hot as my sister skinny dipping with a recently diagnosed thyroid problem.  To make up for that I have decided to add some extra selections for this month.  An update would have sufficed but it ballooned with a bunch of new pics and since become a part 2.  Some of these may have already been spotlighted by others on the web and if that it true then those author’s are by far much better than me and should receive emails from any reader telling them so!  Enjoy your Labor day weekend folks!

The Pulse 11,13

2212905-pulse10a27037_20060127112108_large

With A Jessica Jones show coming up on Netflix how long before Danielle Cage makes an appearance?

The Flash: Iron Heights

Girder is an obscure DC villain who first appeared in The Flash: Iron Heights, an excellent prestige format book by industry greats Johns and Ethan Van Sciver.  The character has been cast to appear in the upcoming Flash TV show.

33670_20061108004250_large

Flashpoint 1 2011

Farooq/Blackout is an even more obscure character than Girder.  Though he appears first in the well printed/underwhelming Flashpoint 1 (also by Johns ) the issue is rare depending on which version you seek out.

Sketch variant, third printing, George Perez variant, SDCC and Canadian Expo edition

 Tales of Suspense 59 ( First Appearance Jarvis )

Jarvis will be cast for the Agent Carter show.  The famous butler to heroes first appeared in this classic series from Marvel.

15945_20051209163234_large

Doctor Who Weekly 17 ( First appearance of Abslom  Daak )

Fan favorite and Dalek Killer, Abslom Daak could finally be appearing on screen.  His first appearance is really going to be tough to find in high grade though.

3412_20051122165926_large

The Avengers 167 ( First appearance of Carina )

22628_20060115204329_large

In the comics she’s The Collector’s daughter but if you’ve see the GOTG film then you know that she’s not to happy with her position.  It’s great little role by an unknown.

The Flash 245 ( First appearance of the Floronic Man )

Del Toro’s Justice League Dark is going to feature many of DC’s best characters who deal in magic and mysticism.  The legendary director  has expressed a desire to include The Floronic Man.  This is his first appearance.

74712_20061219231636_large

Note:  The Floronic man appears in The Atom 1 but he does not become the Floronic Man until this Flash issue.

Secret Six 7 ( first appearance of Komodo )

163826_20090305060803_large

Arrow is looking to feature a ton of DC characters in the upcoming season including Komodo!

The Flash Volume 2 Issue 28  ( First Linda Park )

1076829

Green Arrow 17 variant ( First Komodo DC new 52 )

This variant is going to be the one to collectors will want.  It also features Jeff Lemire’s writing debut for Arrow and that’s enough to make this reader buy!   Simon Lacroix is an expert archer in his own right and may turn out to be one of the more exciting TV characters if he is adapted well from the source material.

2856342-screen_shot_2013_02_06_at_6.25.30_am

The Eternals 7 ( First appearance Eson the Searcher )

One of the more obscure appearances ( and my personal favorite! ) from the GOTG film!

index

Hulk vs. Iron Man 2  ( First Extremis Hulk )

first extremis hulk

Captain Atom ( First General Wade Eiling )

The General is rumored to play a significant role on Arrow!  This one may not see much in the way of market gains based on a higher print run but for fans of Arrow it’s a must own and can probably be found in a dollar bin.

first general wade eiling

Peter Parker, Spider-Ham 12 ( First Galactypus )

pps 12 first galactypus

If you haven’t been reading Ultimate FF then you need to start right after you finish reading this.

Superman Day of Doom 1 of 4

superman-day-of-doom-1

Man I sure hate mini -series and not because of the format.  For some reason collector’s frown upon them especially modern  buyers and sellers.  In this cases fans of the upcoming Gotham show and the Gotham Central comic should want this one.
