Marvel will ‘relaunch’ their Inhumans brand. Not a serious revamp or anything like that, just a way to get them back into the mix….again. Check out Inhumans Prime #1 and see where their headed. Written by Al Ewing with art by Ryan Sook.  Oh yes, the X-Men are going through the same process this week. in X-Men Prime #1. Written by Marc Guggenheim and pencils by Ken Lashley.
Remember the old oversize Marvel Treasury Edition comics back in the 70’s? Those were the best comics ever. Literally larger than life. A comic bigger than your entire head. You were able to wrap the comic around your torso if you wanted. Boy, those were fun times. We’re showing our age, but now your kids (if you have any) can experience the amazingly large panels/larger than life Marvel Treasury Edition this Wednesday; Guardians of the Galaxy All-New Marvel Treasury Edition. Collecting a bunch of Guardians stories and a new Sara Pichelli cover. Buy this, get nostalgic, share the magic with your children.
While Marvel Man-Thing fans will get their fill with the latest issue, Man-Thing #2 will feature another original R.L. Stine secondary story. That is the keepsake with these new Man-Thing comics. Unfortunately, Man-Thing will not sustain his new life offered from Marvel (unless this is a limited series, which we are not aware of), so enjoy his time here now and really enjoy the new (non-Man-Thing) stories as well.

Lobo finds his way back and into Harley’s Little Black Book #6. Comic book power couple Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner at the helm here with artist Simon Bisley.

Detective Comics #951 begins a new storyline from writer James TynionIV, ‘League of Shawows’. Art by Christian Duce.
New JLA series begins; Justice League Of America #1, written by Steve Orlando and art by Ivan Reis.
Writer Hope Larson continues the ‘Son of Penguin’ storyline in Batgirl #8. The second appearance of Penguins son; Ethan Cobblepot.
Astro City hits its 100th anniversary issue; Astro City #41. This issue will have a couple of character introductions. Covers by Alex Ross, written by Kurt Busiek and art from Brent Eric Anderson.

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

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

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

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

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

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Amazing Spider-Man #529 9.6. There have been some rumors abound that the Iron Spider Armor could make an appearance in the new Spider-Man movie. Tony Stark seems to have a bigger role in the Spidey universe than initially thought (see Captain America: Civil War). Lets jump ahead a little bit here and say that Spider-Man will be a part of the Marvel character heavy Avengers movie when they battle Thanos. There is no way Spidey goes into that fight with a nylon suit. Enter the Iron Spider Armor. Here is a high grade (9.6) FIRST Iron Spider Armor for only $50.96. Fantastic buy here folks.

We’re going to give a heads up to all Vertigo (DC) fans, readers and speculators of the new title; Everafter From The Pages Of Fables #1. Not only will this comic be a tremendous interest to readers, it will also feature some first appearances and an introduction of a new villain. Look for this comic to be a possible sleeper and fly under the radar for a bit until word gets out about how awesome it is. Art by Travis Moore and written by Matthew Struges and Dave Justus.
Supergirl gets another series this Wednesday. For those keeping score at home, this is the seventh volume. Supergirl #1 written by Steve Orlando and art from Brian Ching.
Cyborg Rebirth #1. Written by John Semper Jr. Art by Paul Pelletier.
Bill Sienkiewicz lends his legendary talents to DC Comics this week for the Harley Quinn #3 variant. It’s absolutely disturbing, but beautiful.

We’re loving the prostate cancer awareness Marvel Comics is bringing to it’s line on certain covers. Invincible Iron Man #13 variant cover is drawn by Jamal Campbell.
Marvel turns its focus a bit on the new Wasp in All-New All-Different Avengers #14.
We cannot make up our minds about which Daredevil #11 cover kicks more as* this week. Is it the Ron Garney or Alex Maleev cover? Either way, it’s a win win for fans.
Speaking of a win for fans, did you know about the Deadpool & The Mercs For Money #3 variant cover by Rob Liefeld? Yep, check it out on Ebay right HERE for only $49.99 with free shipping! As always, WE are not the Ebay seller here. Please read our disclaimer.
Nothing like a good origin comic to check out. Doctor Strange #11 will reveal the origin of Doctor Strange. The Adam Hughes variant is sweet. Most are selling this variant for $90+. You can get all 3 Doctor Strange #11 variants for only $89.99 right HERE.

When we were in San Diego Comic Con a few weeks back, we saw a stunning Silk cosplay simply standing in an aisle waiting for something or someone, we’re not sure. Whenever we cover a comic show, we always provide the best cosplay we see (pics), not the usual run of the mill cosplay pics. So we said hello and asked if we can take a quick pic for our fans on social media. We asked her handle name so that we would be able to provide a tag in our post. It turns out it was cosplay mega-star Rian Synnth. Check out the SDCC Youtube video posted below, that’s her right on the cover of the video. And while we’re on the topic of covers, Silk #12 features one of those variant cosplay covers Marvel has been doing for a little bit now. Is that Rian Synnth on the cover?! It sure seems like it is. We went from not knowing Rian to taking a pic for our fans, to “maybe” seeing her on the cover of a Marvel Comic. Cool. Oh and by the way, that variant is sold out.

Ms. Marvel #1

Buy Now

IC 100 Club Pick: Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) 8.0. When Marvel Studios hits theaters with their first female lead comic book movie, it’s going to be huge. It will make movie goers and comic fans forget about the Wonder Woman flick very, very fast. How can we say this? Well first and foremost, it’s an opinion. Secondly, Warner Bros. has not yet had an answer for any of the Marvel movies as far as the “level” goes. Will the Wonder Woman movie be good? Probably, but Marvel will out-do DC with their female lead movie Ms. Marvel. It will be set in modern day and appeal radically to the younger and older female audiences as Disney KNOWS how to do. It will happen. Disney KNOWS marketing. So with that confidence stated, this week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) graded at a low 8.0 and the low price of $79.99. This low grade will not matter once the movie hits and the popularity of Ms. Marvel is at its peak. This movie will be huge. This first appearance of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel will be untouchable.

The premiere Suicide Squad writer returns for a one shot. Suicide Squad War Crimes Special #1 by John Ostrander.
The introduction of a new hero will happen in Future Quest #4. Writer Jeff Parker and artist’s Steve Rude and Aaron Lopresti are bringing it.
Two DC annuals to check out. First annual ever; Gotham Academy Annual #1 from Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher. The origin of the first Bombshell; Batgirl in DC Comics Bombshells Annual #1 this Wednesday.
As Warner Bros. is a bit late to the superhero movie party, DC is a bit late on the variant cover theme too. Justice League Of America #9 has a Batman v Superman Dawn Of Justice Cover. Who cares right? Well not only is the cover bad as*, it’s drawn by (insert sarcasm) some artist named Jim Lee. $3.99 cover price. We’ll take one please.

The “new” female comic character is still a hot commodity. Mostly hot for a minute, then cools off, but then there are ones that catch on. Will the first appearance of the female Electro in Amazing Spider-Man #17 be a hot ticket? We’ll have to wait and see for about a minute…..or maybe longer.
Marvel will go to the well once again regarding their success with Gwenpool and Spider-Gwen. In All-New Wolverine Annual #1 we’ll see Wolvergwen and Spiderine. Newer mash-up’s here but this time with the all-new Wolverine character. Although the Wolvergwen character looks like a first appearance, a “Gwenverine” character popped up on a variant cover back in August of 2015. Old Man Logan #2 gets the dubious distinction of being that first appearance issue. Seems to be much like the first appearance of Gwenpool, cover only. So is Gwenverine and Wolergwen the same character? We don’t make this stuff up, we just report it. 
We’re loving the cover to Silver Surfer #6. It’s the 200th overall issue of Surfer comic book issues. The cover shows many awesome past Silver Surfer comic books surrounding him. It’s neat.

Dark Horse Comics offers fans two number one comics written by two fan fav’s of the industry this week. Witchfinder City Of The Dead #1 will be written by Mike Mignola and World Of Tanks #1 will be written by Garth Ennis. World Of Tanks #1 will be based on a game that has an audience of 110 million players. That’s a whole lot of possible built-in audience to reach! Two debut Dark Horse Comics to pick up. That’s some nice debut reading material here.
IDW Publishing’s Jill Thompsons Killer Inside Me #1 is sold out. A lot of buzz surrounding this book. Look for a possible bounce in the aftermarket as readers latch on to this classic story put into comic book form. They’ll be delighted and the bounce may happen.
It looks as though IDW has an answer to DC’s All-Star Batman. It’s called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #1. Various A-list creators will contribute to this new on-going TMNT series. Look for possible introductions in this first issue and as the series progresses. This first issue features a back-up story from Kevin Eastman and Bill Sienkiewicz. Now that’s some serious duo firepower. Count us in on this series and especially this first issue.
Spawn #265 will introduce a new character and will also have Ant make an appearance. Ant was introduced in Ant #1 (2012) from Arcana Studio. HER last known appearance of Ant was in Savage Dragon #180 (2012). Will Erik Larsen bring back Ant for good? Hopefully we see more. We’ll wait and see.

IC 100 Club Pick – Black Panther #1 – Click to Buy now

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!
We are not responsible for comics not shipped on time and or changing of release dates regarding this article or any article on InvestComics. We report on the comics DUE out the coming week. We have NO control of release dates nor will we change our article to accommodate a change in shipping, release date or cancellation.

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s up to Faith and Valiant to keep them now.

Better get your hands on these indie’s; Straitjacket #4 (Amigo Comics) is sold out. Gingerdead Man #1 (Action Lab/Danger Zone) is sold out. Plus Ultra #2 (Overground Comics) is sold out.

InvestComics Hot Picks 369:

New Release Comics on 4/29/15 (And back issues)

Have you seen the new contest going on? It’s a good one. Want to WIN the Exclusive Secret Wars variant comics below? Click on the image to be rerouted to the contest details/rules. Be sure to enter and then come back here.

Secret_Wars_1_InvestComics_Contest

Three issue finales should grab some attention of readers and collectors this Wednesday. Avengers #44 and New Avengers #33 both end to make way for the epic Secret Wars heading our way. Both of these comics are still available with variants as well. Nothing sold out as of yet. Batman #40 on the other hand is sold out across the board. Regular cover and variants are sold out at Diamond. It’s the Endgame storyline finale and it’s a biggie. The Andy Kubert variant is a beauty and the Mask movie variant is quite awesome itself. About that Mask variant; If the stars aline with the galaxy and the a moon sets in Jupiter under the Capricorn astrology sign, maybe if you happen to bump into actor Jim Carey and have him sign the book for you (as a graded witness or with a witness) you would own a very awesome comic. So please no emails or social media messages “How would I get Jim Carey to sign my comic?!” Please, we’re having fun here.

While the Convergence deal is going down (more on that in a little bit), DC is building on their big Justice League event called “Darkseid War” and it begins this week in Justice League #40. This story will be epic and awesome. For many years InvestComics has informed speculators to pick up the first appearance of Darkseid. InvestComics is still bullish (buy side) on this comic. Check out a more recent article on Darkseid on InvestComics from 2013 right HERE. Some very key issues that will probably bounce once DC gets around to their announcement that Darkseid will be the main bad dude in the Justice League movie. Maybe it’ll be Doomsday. Who knows really?!

All-Star_Squadron_Vol_1_25_InvestComics Fantastic_Four_645_InvestComics Silk_3_InvestComics

Here’s a quick speculative lesson here. Darkseid is the better buy, even if Doomsday appears in a movie and Darkseid doesn’t. Yes I said it. Here’s a few reasons why; Darkseid has withstood the test of time and has always been a bad as* as Doomsday has been reinvented and appears in an abundance of overprinted comics back 20 something years ago. Try getting some solid 9.8’s in the Darkseid article mentioned above. They are scarcer. They are simply harder to find in better shape. Most of those comics in that article are cheaper than the first appearance of Doomsday right now. Doomsday will be a passing faze folks. The books will spike, then drop once the JLA kick his butt and kill him. No more Doomsday in movies, now what? Prices drop (hey Ultron fans you paying attention here?) and no one cares about Doomsday anymore. So back to Darkseid we go. He’s the long term money maker here. Not Doomsday. Lets say Darkseid appears in the movie. Many of you are saying “wouldn’t the same happen to the Darkseid character if he appears?” The simple answer is no. DC will not kill Darkseid in a movie (you listening Thanos fans?). DC knows that character commands the respect of ever going back to that well (villain) if need be. You see how this works? They would kill Doomsday, but not Darkseid. Darkseid is a bad as*, he’s money. Doomsday will probably make some very nice cash for many speculators, but many will get stuck holding onto them too long. So Darkseid vs Doomsday…….put money for long term on Darkseid and short term on Doomsday.

Disney is still very angry at Fox for not complying with their needs/wants and will now be getting rid of another one of the Marvel Comics character(s). The X-Men have all but disappeared from the Marvel lure, Wolverine is still dead and now the Fantastic Four comic will be ending; Fantastic Four #645. Take note: don’t make the mouse angry. So how will this triple sized $5.99 issue end everything for Marvel’s first family? Only four variants at last count for one of Marvel’s most prolific runs in their history. That’s the same amount of variants for the New Avengers #33 comic this week. That’s an angry rodent.

Speaking of variants. Silk vs. Black Cat this week in Silk #3. The incentive variant cover is sold out. It’s a nice speculative pick up for when Silk breaks out.

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

As InvestComics reiterates almost every week now. Buy the new Star Wars comics. No matter if you collect them or not. Princess Leia #3 will be hitting the new comic book shelf this week and you run the risk of missing a first appearance that will explode in the aftermarket due to either a character that will or MAY (speculative) appear in a new Star Wars film. Maybe one of them break out into a popular cartoon, maybe somehow work their way into the Marvel universe? Any of these speculative thoughts are a possibility, so why not read a good story(s) and stay on top of things?

Daredevil #15 will bring back an old villain. We look forward to who is showing up. By the way, anyone catching that Daredevil Netfix series? Good stuff!

DC’s very popular Injustice gets an annual; Injustice Gods Among Us Year Three Annual #1. Looking forward to a good read here.

An interesting comic from Image this Wednesday to definitely check out is Pisces #1. Written by Kurtis J. Wiebe (Rat Queens).

The second bullying issue from Northwest Press hits this week; Rise Comics Against Bullying #2. Read the write up right HERE that InvestComics gave regarding issue #1.

And here is a small list of number one comics to also check out this week; Fubar Mother Russia #1, Mayday #1, Alamo Value Plus #1, Mens Feelings #1.

Each week InvestComics has been breaking down some of the DC Comics Convergence comics. As said a few weeks ago, speculatively speaking here of course, but DC is running a marketing campaign to see what their next move will be for years to come. Do they make 2 separate universes in their convoluted confusing universe already set in place or are they just seeing which reintroduced characters or teams they will set forth with and give them more air time. Again, all speculative speaking here. If they are indeed doing their feeler marketing campaign, here are a few comics a speculator can look for…

Gotham_by_Gaslight_InvestComics Justice_League_107_InvestComics Red_Son_InvestComics

Convergence Infinity Inc. #1 features Infinity Inc. of course. Their first appearance came in All-Star Squadron #25 (1983). Infinity Inc. then had their own series which featured the very first artwork (for DC) by a very well known artist today. A special “Carpe Diem” shout out goes to the first person who knows who this is.

The Red Son #1 back in 2003 was a big hit. As of today, it’s still a fan favorite. Check out Convergence Action Comics #1 as it touches on the popular Red Son story from none other than Mark Millar.

Back in 1989 Gotham By Gaslight was a well received story told by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola. DC brings back that story in Convergence Shazam #1.

The Qward Universe will make its way into the Convergence Justice Society of America #1 comic. The Qward Universe first appeared in Green Lantern #2 (1960).

Convergence Plastic Man Freedom Fighters #1 will bring the Freedom Fighters front and center. Check out their first appearance in Justice League of America #107 (1973)

The story from Convergence Worlds Finest #1 will be told by Scribbly Jibbet. Scribbly’s first appearance came in The Funnies #2 (1936). Also appearing in this comic is the group The Seven Soldiers of Victory. They first appeared in Leading Comics #1 (1941) and also Showcase #1 from 2000 (Silver Age).

Convergence #4 and Convergence Blue Beetle #1, Convergence Booster Gold #1, Convergence Crime Syndicate #1, Convergence Detective Comics #1 round out DC’s Convergence week.

InvestComics Hot Picks:

New Release Comics on 3/18/15 (And back issues)

CLICK any RED Link to Buy/Bid on comics in this article on Ebay

InvestComics was at the London Super Comic Con yesterday. The UK Correspondence team of Giles Hargraves and Jamie Wright covered a lot. Check out the awesome duo in the picture. Go talk to them on Facebook; InvestComics: Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Soiety) about the show and comic books.

Be sure to check here and ALL of the InvestComics social media to catch some great images from the show. We will have a dedicated article regarding all the pictures and some video right here on the site. Stay tuned and thanks to Giles and Jamie for an amazing job!

There are so many new comics to check out this week. There are thirteen number one issues coming this Wednesday!

CLICK any RED Link to Buy/Bid on comics in this article on Ebay

One of the standouts is Image Comics’ Chrononauts #1. The new release coming Wednesday will be accompanied by 6 variants at last count. Expect sellouts across the board here. The story does seem compelling here, but another compelling reason we see such interest is because Mark Millar is attached here. Fans love Millar. Speculators love him too, but to a certain degree. With Mark’s track record of comics going straight to theaters, speculators haven’t really felt the love in the aftermarket. Yes initially they have, but long term, no way.Will Chrononauts #1 follow this route of long standing Mark Millar books going to the big screen? Who knows really? Millar’s Nemesis comic from a few years back was one of the last comics that caught the interest of Hollywood, but hasn’t come to fruition just yet. If Nemesis ever does make it to the theaters, it might be more of the same as far as the aftermarket goes. On the flip side of that coin though Nemesis would be the first solo type character to come out of the Millar camp onto the big screen. Maybe that would account for something stronger for the collector as long term is concerned. Maybe not, but for this week we have Chrononauts #1 and that cool Fiona Staples variant.

Batgirl_Endgame_1_InvestComics Earth_2_Worlds_End_24_InvestComics Hulk_13_InvestComics

Here are the rest of the number one Image Comics that need to be on your radar this week. Invisible Republic #1, Red One #1 (not many on Ebay right now) and Manhattan Projects Sun Beyond The Stars #1.

CLICK any RED Link to Buy/Bid on comics in this article on Ebay

And here are the rest of the number one issues from the independent circuit to check out; Fly Outbreak #1 from IDW, Frankenstein Underground #1 will be written by Mike Mignola, a funny tale from Antarctic Press called Furry Tails #1, Boom Studios; Giant Days #1, and another from Antarctic Press called Tales From The Creep #1.

Looks like Marvel will finally put Spider-Verse to bed. No mention in the Spider-Man solicit, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t another big storyline behind it. Here comes “Spiral” and it seems like like Yuri Watanabe will be one of the main characters in Spiral. Yuri is better known as the Wraith. Yuri first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #600 (2009), then she first appeared as the Wraith in Amazing Spider-Man ##663 (2011). With the Wraith, it makes for another possible strong female character within the comic book world to squeeze in……Which leads me to Silk #2. Regular readers here already know that we love Silk at InvestComics. We think there is upside for her for years to come. Maybe not exploding so much now, but down the road Silk will be a strong character. A character with substance, a rich past (we’ll learn) and overall appeal. And speaking of a past, Silk #2 will give us a bit more into her origin. Issue number two will be an important comic in your collection if you’re on the InvestComics/Silk train. An appealing pick up for the sake that readers are getting to learn her possible ties to Hydra and origin, which is adding even more to Silk’s lure. Be sure to click the link and check out the variants on Ebay. Very nice.

The Marvel Star Wars excitement continues this week with Princess Leia #2. As mentioned in a previous article, the princess is flying solo and never really has before. Therefore, the speculators have to be on alert as to any possible unannounced introductions within this series.

Hulk #13 features an appearance by Deadpool. Expect a sold out comic before too long. Eye candy cover helps here too.

It’s been a while since a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle book made its way onto the InvestComics Hot Picks. Well wait no more! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 will have the demise of a regular player in the TMNT family. Who will we mourn?

Darksied will go toe to toe with Powergirl in Earth 2 Worlds End #24. That cover, wow. That will be a fun read. Superman will show a side we rarely see in Superman #39. More good reading.

Half of the current creative team of Batgirl gets together for Batgirl Endgame #1. The Jokerized mob makes their move toward Batgirl. This should get good.

Back in 1973 DC released an unusual comic called Strange Sports Stories #1 (1973). Fast forward to 2015 and we get today’s version of Strange Sports Stories #1, but this time DC releases the title on the Vertigo imprint. This makes for an attractive read. Also, if you’re a wrestling fan, CM Punk writes his second comic book story ever in these pages. His first was mentioned a few articles ago. There are others getting their first crack at a story as well in here. It’s the 2015 version of DC’s New Talent Showcase. Ahh, brought you back right? Be sure to click this red link if you have no idea what DC’s New Talent showcase is. Fun times those books were.

I do have a point as to why I am about to talk about something. So either stay with me (which I hope you do) or not……

I’m about to get a bit personal about a topic I know all too well. I don’t or never wanted to, but I do. If you have children, then read on. If you don’t and are full of anger, then read on. If I can make at least ONE young person understand and seek help or enlighten them in some way, then I will have accomplished more than these Hot Picks in the last 10 years will ever do for me. Solace.

Bullying unfortunately exist within our society and is only recognized more so now than ever before because of the social media and vast coverage it can get. It has existed since I was a boy in elementary school and way before then too. The feeling of loneliness/emptiness is sometimes too immense for kids and or teenagers to handle, so they take measures into their own hands they only know how and they take their own life so that the pain will go away. It happens far too often and it truly needs to stop. Bullying comes in all different ways. It’s become a mainstay on the internet where insecure people hide behind a computer and spew out hatred, negativity, prejudice, and a host of other words that are not coming to mind right now. Too many times even on the InvestComics social media I see opinions that are too strong willed to the point that no one is listening and everyone is shouting. There are bully’s on InvestComics social media that simply do not like InvestComics, which is fine, but to take time to insult or deliver hateful things is a sickness. Not liking something and following it for a simple reason of delivering hatred is not healthy. But unfortunately this exist. It’s another form of bullying and there are so many different variations that one must always be vigilant regarding their children (if you have any) especially. Please be aware and listen to your children if they are sending signals to you that there could be a possible issue at school or at work or anywhere. It’s extremely vital we stay on top of it because your child might be asking for help, but simply does not know how to express it. We all lead busy lives, but stay in tune with your children. You are their link to their future and they depend on you. It truly pains me when I hear of teenager taking their life over a Twitter war, or I see a senseless violent video of some kid getting picked on or beat up. It’s simply not necessary in my opinion. Fight back you say? Sure in an age where a gun is so accessible. Where violence is the norm and is promoted daily. Regardless of how much I may teach my children that violence is not the answer, there is some 11 year old playing Grand Theft Auto thinking it’s okay to shoot at people randomly because he is not being taught otherwise. So how do you teach your children to stay firm and stick up for themselves when an 11 year old has access to daddy’s gun and just got beat up by MY son? Well, to be honest I’m not sure, but there is help if you need guidance (see links below). Advocating to avoid conflict is the first priority.

Bullying_InvestComics Rise_Comics_Against_Bullying_1_InvestComicsA few months back in January, the InvestComics Hot Picks #353 touched on an anti-bullying comic Marvel released; Avengers No More Bullying #1. InvestComics was to put forth an anti-bullying campaign, but had a minor setback. We are still going to forge ahead, but for now we want to focus your attention on Northwest Press’ Rise Comics Against Bullying #1. Buy this comic book and read it with the family, with your kids. Pass it along or recommend someone else to buy it. Proceeds will go to organizations such as GLAAD, Stand For The Silent and Prism Comics. Please take the time to support each one of these non profit organizations. They put out a tremendous amount of work to get the word out. The InvestComics team thanks you.

Divinity #2 and Secret Identities #2 both showed great sales with their respective number one issues. Check out the second
issue to see if you may stay on board. InvestComics like the new team book Secret Identities a lot.

Last week, the VP of InvestComics Rafael Rosario and I were talking about how great the Moon Knight character is. InvestComics has recommended Werewolf by Night #32 throughout the years (about $500+ ago and 10 years ago). And we STILL recommend the first appearance. Buy it. Buy it. Oh yeah, so Moon Knight #13 starts a new arc this week. Buy it because Moon Knight is cool, the read is cool and you are cool.

So those DC movie variants are still coming. Best way to monetize and have a very unique product is simple. Get the Fugitive Batman Superman #20 cover signed by Harrison Ford/Tommy Lee Jones and grade it. The Lost Boys Teen Titans #8 variant, get that one signed by Kiefer Sutherland and graded. Feldman too if you feel like it, but Kiefer is the prize here. And get Batgirl #40 signed/graded by Prince. Batgirl #40 signed by Prince? Yes I’ll take one of those.

Diamond Announces Top Products For May 2014

Diamond Announces Top Products For May 2014

(BALTIMORE, MD) — (June 13, 2014) — The murder of the Watcher drew Earth’s heroes to the Moon’s surface and prompted an investigation to find the perpetrator in Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato, Jr.’s Original Sin #1 from Marvel Comics, the best-selling comic book of May 2014 according to information provided by Diamond Comic Distributors, the world’s largest distributor of comics, graphic novels, and pop culture merchandise.

Marvel Comics had four titles place among the month’s top ten best-selling comics. DC Entertainment had five titles in the top ten, led by Batman #31 at #4. Also in the top ten was Image Comics with The Walking Dead #127 at #8.

Marvel Comics was May’s top publisher with a 34.38% dollar market share and a 36.46% unit market share. DC Entertainment was second with a 30.04% dollar share and 33.52% unit share. Image Comics was third with a 8.86% dollar share, followed by IDW Publishing at 6.38% and Dark Horse Comics at 5.96%. Sales overall slipped in May, a four-week month, when compared to April with its five shipping weeks.

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo are revisiting Batman’s origins in the “Zero Year” storyline, and the collected edition of the first story arc — Batman Volume 4: Zero Year: Secret City — from DC Entertainment was May’s best-selling graphic novel and one of the publisher’s four in the top ten. Also notable, Image Comics had four titles in the top ten, led by Rick Remender Matteo Scalera’s Black Science Volume 1: How to Fall Forever at #3. Additionally, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy In Hell Volume 1: Descent from Dark Horse Comics ranked #7.

Released to coincide with the new Transformers: Age of Extinction film, Running Press’ Transformers: Light-Up Optimus Prime Bust & Book Set was May’s best-selling book. Dark Horse Comics’ Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia continued its run as a best-seller as the month’s #2 best-selling book.

DC Collectibles launched a new action figure line in May with the DC Comics Designer Series 1: Greg Capullo Figures, and the Batman figure from the line was the month’s best-selling toy product. All four figures from the line were among the top ten, and DC Collectibles had five of the month’s top ten products.

NECA/WizKids newest expansion for the Marvel HeroClix game, the Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool Booster Brick, was May’s best-selling games product. April’s top selling product, USAopoly’s Monopoly: The Walking Dead Survival Edition, dropped to #5 in May.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which include the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from a universe of over 3,500 comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world. The account base includes brick-and-mortar comic book specialty shops, Internet merchants, and other specialty stores.

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond accounts during any given month, which comprises initial pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable.

Please note that comics marked with an asterisk have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

The count of new titles shipped includes all titles that were invoiced by Diamond to retailers for the first time during the month and is not the official solicited title count for the month. Variant edition comic books and graphic novels at the same price point count as a single SKU. Variant edition comic books, lenticular covers, digital combo packs, and graphic novels at different price points count as separate SKUs for each edition.

HUGE Hot Picks List. DC Comics runs the table this week with their 3D extravaganza, but more on that in a bit……

Okay don’t mean to rehash, but there is a reason here. Stick with me…..A couple of weeks ago when Warner Brothers announced the signing of Ben Affleck as the latest man to don the cowl, the internet basically broke in pieces of whining fanboys. I can say honestly, I haven’t witnessed an outcry like this in a while. Well since the last major announcement of a superhero casting. Say Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and on and on. I could not believe that I read about a petition being set up to have Ben Affleck removed as Batman. It’s an absolute travesty that fanboys will go this far, or even complain as much as they have in the first place. This is what Warner Brothers decided. There is no changing it. Get a grip, move on. The out lash was so compelling to me that I decided to create a new Facebook page called Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben. If you are a supporter of Ben Affleck as Batman, you should get over to that page and tell any of your friends as well. If not, well that’s fine! You’re entitled to your opinion, but please do not make a fool of yourself. So why do I bring this up today you may ask? I had a few moments to put together a fun 52 second video regarding fanboys that feel compelled to cry about everything. It was done out of fun, no malicious intent here so chill. Watch the video and pass it around. Maybe it will give that whiny fanboy a wakeup call that the world is not going to collapse around them because of a casting for a superhero movie. Get over it.

InvestComics has booked their flight to New York Comic Con 2013! This trip will include a first. An InvestComics team! Rafael Rosario of Ratchet City Comics will be accompanying InvestComics as a Press member. This is a big deal folks. This means more interviews, more coverage, and best of all….more prizes!

….And a couple of news items are coming down the pike from InvestComics soon so stay close to the vest via the InvestComics Newsletter and InvestComics Facebook page!

Let’s be honest here, DC Comics is doing a tremendous job with their money grab. Give them credit here. One thing many have to have to understand is that DC Comics is a business and they do not care what fans think. They really don’t. This is a business first business. Do not kid yourselves into believing that the fans make an iota impact in their decision making. If it did, well the New 52 would never have been. Case in point this week with the 3D cover gimmick. Most readers and collectors haven’t seen the likes of this type of gimmick since the 90’s glow in the dark covers. Fun stuff! So the question here is, does the gimmick destroy the content on the inside? Well that’s for each individual to decide for themselves. What is known about this gimmick is that fans are eating it up like candy! Every single 3D cover is SOLD OUT! That’s right folks! SOLD OUT!

So what does this mean to you? Well this means that if you want to make some serious cash, this would be a fine time to do so. Two things to do here to make the most bang for your buck. One; grab the most popular 3D “character” cover and get it graded by CGC. A high grade is extremely important here. Two; after you get the most “popular”, try to figure out through the numbers game (Diamond Distributors) which comic received the lowest print run. This will be a quick sale for you right now, but in the long haul, you should hold onto one because when the aftermarket settles down, it’s the “rare” book everyone loves. Again, the only way you maximize your monies here is with a very high grade.

Here at InvestComics, I decided to have some fun and look at each individual 3D cover and pair it up with the first appearance of the villain takeover. Scroll through the covers and see them side by side, pretty awesome. So without further ado in alphabetical order………

DC 3D Comics 9-4-13

[scrollGallery id=293]

Forever Evil #1Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 features a Cyborg Superman takeover. Cyborg’s first (not Hank) is in Adventures of Superman #466 (1990).

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Joker cover, and his debut of course came in Batman #1 (1940).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Two-Face cover, his first is in Detective Comics #66 (1942).

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Ventriloquist takeover – her first; Detective Comics #583 (1988), with art by Norm Breyfogle and cover by Mike Mignola, very nice.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Poison Ivy cover – her debut; Batman #181 (1966).

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #15.1 – Desaad cover – First appearance; Forever People #2 (1971), Jack Kirby nuff’ said.

Flash (2011) #23.1 – Grodd – Debuted in Flash #106 (1959).

Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #23.1 with Count Vertigo; first appeared in World’s Finest #251 (1978).

Showcase #73Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Relic. First appearance in Green Lantern #21 (2013)

Justice League (2011) #23.1 – The BEST of the 3D bunch right here. The villain of all DC villains – Darkseid! Refer back to the InvestComics article ‘InvestComics Hot Pick: Single Issue – Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134’ to better understand just how important Darkseid is in the DC Universe.

Justice League Dark (2011) #23.1 – The Creeper first appeared in Showcase #73 (1968). Created by Legend Steve Ditko!

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.1 – Deadshot first appeared in Batman #59 (1950). A highly underrated character.

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.1 – Bizarro debuted in Superboy #68 (1958).

So that’s all of the 3D madness this week for you. The one comic that will claim responsibility for the villain takeover this week would be Forever Evil (2013 DC) #1. Although with Geoff Johns at the helm here, probably talking a great storyline folks, but as far as monetarily in a few years? Forever Evil #1 will not command much at all, neither will many of these 3D books. Do not hold onto these for long term investments, you will get burned. This is a gimmick upswing; the collector needs to monitor the aftermarket here to make the most on their profits. Stay close to the market, check often and dump when the time is right.

So what else is going on in DC land this week? How about Batman Black and White (2013) #1? All variants for this particular comic are SOLD OUT. With various star artist and writers on this book, and coupled with some spectacular variant covers these comics will do very well in the aftermarket. Get your hands on these. Also from DC we get a royal rumble of sorts; DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe (2013) #1. There are plenty of copies available still, but boy this is going to be a fun comic.

With DC Comics running the table this week, there are a few Marvel Comics to check out and an Indie book NOT to be missed! More on that Indie book in a little bit.

Marvel will bring Spider-Man 2099 back this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #17! Spidey 2099 first came onto the scene in Spider-Man 2099 #1 (1992). However, this week with Superior Spider-Man #17 making the 2099 comeback a big deal, the variants have SOLD OUT. Once again, get your hands on these beautiful variants. They have upside here. Spidey 2099 will be popular once again, so don’t miss the train.

A major X-Men crossover event begins this week (coincidence I think not). Check out X-Men Battle of the Atom (2013) #1 and guess what? Every single variant here is SOLD OUT! ….While the covers are gorgeous, no longevity here in the aftermarket. This is just another crossover event that will probably get many fanboy panties in a bunch anyway.

Venom (2011 Marvel) #40 will focus on the new character Mania. Check HER out. And rounding out Marvel this week; Avengers A.I. (2013) #3 will debut a new world named The Diamond.

Speaking of diamond……..

Anyone remember what happened when Star Wars #1 was released a few months back? Yes, it went nuts in the aftermarket. How about Dark Horse going with Star Wars (2013 Dark Horse) Lucas Draft #1 this week? All variants on this comic are SOLD OUT. This comic is the “rough draft” of the original screenplay of the movie. Seems like a little bit of fluff here, but we’re in! This will be an Indie book not to be missed this week! Here are a few more Indie’s to check out this week; Invincible (2003) #105 solicit reads that this is a big jumping on point if you’d like, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #1 (All variants SOLD OUT), Reality Check (2013 Image) #1 (Lots of copies left here, but Image Comics has been of fire as of late), Hit (2013 Boom Studios) #1 (Not many copies left to be had), Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #1 (Same here, not many copies left), and Love Stories To Die For (2013 Image) #1 (Cover A sits with only 9 copies in the warehouse while there are plenty of cover B’s).

Whew!! That’s a big week!

InvestComics HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=257]

This week in the InvestComics Hot Picks we have a combination of 9 number one issues/zero issues. But before we get to that, a comic book run like no other is coming to close to much of the dismay of many fanboys. Geoff Johns will end his run on Green Lantern this week with a double sized issue. Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #20 will be the issue that every fan will be talking about this coming Wednesday. The only thing we ponder is, why the hefty $7.99 price tag? Ouch. Granted a double sized, but throw a bone here will ya? Anyway, DC played it smart here because they will in fact get their $7.99 being that it’s the climatic final issue of Geoff’s run so kudos to them! (We’re in business here kids, don’t kid yourselves). So with the ending so near, InvestComics went searching for a beginning…..Geoff Johns first Green Lantern work. Well, you’d have to go all the way back to a backup story in 1999’s Green Lantern Secret Files #2. The backup story is called “Lost Pages: Haunting.” He wrote the backup that featured only one Lantern; Hal Jordan. So there you have it, the first and the last. The man single handedly responsible for the “Rebirth” of a character that was in the doldrums since the creative team of Neal Adams/Dennis O’Neil. He was also responsible  for the launching of a Green Lantern movie. So, want to cash in on this? Buy the final issue, couple that with the GL Secret Files #2 and bam! You’re welcome.

With the hit television series Arrow bringing its season finale to the table, It’s only fitting that Arrow (2012 DC) #7 this week brings one of his main adversary’s front and center. The origin of Deathstroke will be revealed. A cult favorite, Deathstroke is a breakout character that seems poised for the big screen someday. When this happens, probably not an IF here, but when it does, be sure to have your paws on The New Teen Titans #2 (1980). Already a collector’s book, this will continue to rise as the years pass us by. It will explode once he makes his appearance on the big screen. The New Teen Titans #2 comic appeared more than 8 years ago in the InvestComics magazine as a solid buy. This still hold true for today.

Ultimate Wolverine (2013) #4 will introduce a new villain, as Wolverine & Cap fight a villain “unlike anything we’ve seen.” In A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #8. Journey into Mystery (2011 3rd Series) #652 will bring back Beta Ray Bill!

Two sleeper issues coming at us this Wednesday. Deep Sea (2013 Dark Horse) #0 from the creative team of Jimmy Palimiotti and Justin Gray and Green Team (2013 DC) #1. Green Team looks like a very interesting read, definitely need to check that out.

Mike Mignola’s creation; Buster Oakley will star in Lobster Johnson Satan Smells A Rat (2013 Dark Horse) #0. Buster’s first appearance was in Hellboy: Box Full of Evil #1 (1999). Our friend Tom Mumme along with Blue Juice publishing bring Accelerators (2013 Blue Juice) #1 this Wednesday. Must check that out.

Rounding out the week (in no particular order) of MUST looks/reads/have’s; Solid State Tank Girl (2013 Titan) #1, Bounce (2013 Image) #1, DMC Devil May Cry Vergil Chronicles (2013 Titan) #1, Sex (2013 Image) #3, Half Past Danger (2013 IDW) #1, Jirni (2013 Aspen) #2, Akaneiro (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Werewolves Hunger (2013 Zenescope) #1.
