Invincible Iron Man #1 – Marvel tips readers off on the possibility of new characters appearing in this number one issue.

Marvel Super Hero Spectacular #1 – The same as above here. New characters are possible to appear. Take a look through these books, decide if a move is necessary in your opinion. 

Deep Space Tragedy #1 – Cosmic Times will offer a new comic this Wednesday. Awesome art from Mike Wagganer. This great story will sell out eventually on the retail level, so you should get your copy now before it’s gone. Cosmic Times will have copies available at their booth at New York Comic Con 2015.

Axcend #1 – New Image Comics creation from Shane Davis will be a hit. Shane pencils and writes.

Paper Girls #1 – Here’s a new series coming out from Brian K. Vaughan. It’s always a good idea to get on top of his books. They’re awesome reads and a possible speculation boom waiting to happen.

If you’ve been living under a rock, you should have noticed by now that the Marvel universe has gone through some changes lately. This Wednesday Marvel will begin the first phase on changing their entire spectrum of the way you are use to seeing Marvel. It will be vastly different. Good, bad or indifferent, it’s happening with or without you. So if you’re on board that’s great, if you’re not, you’ll come back like you always do. Regular readers on InvestComics will know that we recommend entire runs of comic series. In the sense we recommend picking up each and every copy of a series because of the potential of a breakout introduction character/event. Any Marvel Star Wars comics or any of the Spider-Verse (first series) comics are prime examples. Incidentally, Darth Vader #10, Lando #5, and Journey To Star Wars Force Awakens Shattered Empire #2 come out this Wednesday!

Marvel Point One #1 comics or anything from Marvel regarding this new universe will have a large speculative market attached to it. No one will really know who or what or where that “big” book will happen/come. That “Spider-Gwen” or “Gwen-Pool” moment if you will. Maybe it’ll never happen, but with this huge restructure of the Marvel Universe, there are bound to be possible breakouts. Could the new universe be a bust? Maybe, nothing is written in stone here, but be a smart investor here. Don’t get caught up in the hyperbole of others saying how big something will be when in fact they are guessing just like you are. Speculators that talk too large are usually the ones that are left holding too many copies of the first appearance of Spider-Gwen and are still trying to hype up a flooded market. This is what separates InvestComics from everyone else, we’ll give you the straight truth. This is why we’re number one.

Which brings us to Amazing Spider-Man #1, Avengers #0, Doctor Strange #1, Contest Of Champions #1, and Invincible Iron Man #1. The Invincible Iron Man #1 and Marvel Super Hero Spectacular #1 are the only two books that hint at new characters appearing in it. Iron Man uses almost 2/3 of the alphabet regarding its variant covers. 1A, 1B, 1C……..The others are no better with a plethora of variants at your disposal.

…..Another relaunch? Really? Yes really. Let’s revisit what InvestComics has explained to speculators over and over and over again. Can/will any of these comics be a decent flip? Probably, but a very short window here. Why? Because everyone will have the majority of these comics in hand already. They don’t need to buy from you. Second, the variants. The variants will be the chase and a chase that most speculators will make their money on. Here’s the thing speculators. Before you spend that $25, $50, $100, $200 on a variant. As we have covered here countless times, what will this number one Spider-Man or Avengers comic bring to the table? Will there be a major character introduction? Will there be a sustainable status quo change to latch on to? If the answer to both of those questions is no, then save your money. You’re essentially buying a glorified Spider-Man or Avengers comic. You’re buying into the hype. Realize this. All of those variants have one key component in common. The inside. If the inside of that comic does not offer anything but a good story (what’s wrong with that really??) then you have a very nice cover you paid too much money for. Will any other speculation sites tell you this? Probably not because the fanboy in them cannot contain themselves. They will eventually fall in line with InvestComics because they all eventually do. They read this column religiously….we know. As part of our disclaimer reads What you read is 100% authentic. Any material you read is 100% original content from InvestComics and does not borrow from any article(s) or comic website(s) for its content. Anything you read  from here on any other site that seems similar probably and most likely originated from here.”

So what do you do with the new Amazing Spider-Man #1 and the Avengers #0 comic? You buy it, you read it, you enjoy it. If it turns out to be a Batman #1 New 52 book, then you’re in luck. If not, you have a new Spidey and Avengers story that will probably kick butt. Be careful of that hype for the variants. The market is inundated with too many of the same guts (insides) of the book. Understand that we’re not trying to marginalize or take away from the greatness of these new number one issues, but the speculators have to be on high alert here. Newsflash from InvestComics; The speculative landscape has and is vastly changing and you must be on top of it. 

A side note here. In all of the years InvestComics has delivered the weekly Hot Picks, we cannot remember a worse idea for a theme of variant covers. The cosplay variants are an absolute embarrassment. There are so many fantastic cosplay enthusiast that take their craft serious that Marvel could have went with. Not these ridiculous Halloween costumes on display. Wow, terrible.

There’s an Image Comics release that will be a sold out comic before too long; Axcend #1. A new ongoing series from Shane Davis. With Shane’s fantastic art and mad writing skills, this will be a good book to jump on. The introduction of Axcend! Speaking of sold out Image comic books, check out Brian K Vaughan’s Paper Girls #1 too. Anything Brian touches these days usually means a lot of fans buying it all up. A no doubter to check out. Brian also has his other comic out this week too; We Stand On Guard #4. A great series to follow.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50 reaches an epic story line conclusion. Count us in! One of the best things about this epic book is the Kevin Eastman/Jack Kirby incentive variant cover. Jack Kirby? How? Well who cares, it’s Jack Kirby.

The meme sensation “Grumpy Cat” will get his/her own comic book from Dynamite Entertainment. Not only will Grumpy Cat #1 feature a Batman type variant, but it will come with at least 8 variants if not more by the time all is said and done. With the millions of adoring fans of the Grumpy Cat meme’s there is no telling what this comic will do as far as sales go. Probably a sell out here. Crazy crazy stuff this comic book world…..

A possible introduction of a new hero happens in Action Comics #45. With Greg Pak writing, this is a good thing. Batman and Robin Eternal #1 will definetly be a book to check out this week. Written by Scott Snyder/James TynionIV and art from Tony Daniel. The series promises to bring some new characters into the Batman/Robin universe and we are all in. The “new” Batman will team up with the Justice League for the first time in Detective Comics #45. Legend Neal Adams does a monsters variant cover for the Green Lantern #45 issue. A new DC/Vertigo book; Survivors Club #1 looks good. Green Arrow Annual #1 is a Halloween issue and there might be an intro of a new villain in it. Pick it up and find out. Telos #1 is on scheduled for release. Does anyone care?

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 3-14-12

Welcome to InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 3-14-12        Join the InvestComics Facebook page right HERE

As promised, the InvestComics Stan Lee interview will be coming. It’s in the stages of transcribing (audio not all that good) and will be here shortly. So hang tight!

The second release of the latest MegaCon 2012 Q&A came out. It’s a quick watch and it’s funny!  Click right HERE to watch that OR click on the video to the right of this page, you won’t have to leave here! The video features;  Jimmy Palmiotti, Billy Tucci, Tony Bedard, Frank Tieri, Jeff Balke, Sebastian Piccione, Jason Metcalf, Mike Wagganer, Brian Wolf, Karl Moline, and James Whynot. So go check it out!

Brian K. Vaughan will be returning to the comic book scene this week with a new ongoing series. InvestComics suggests that you check out You Tube’s Famous Faces & Funnies video’s regarding the new comic. Very funny videos featuring FFFIC’s very own Shaun Sorenson, Sebastian Piccione and Famous Faces & Funnies comic store owner Rick Shea.

Saga #1 from Image Comics will come with 40+ pages and no ads at a nice easy price of $2.99. Okay so you get all of these pages from a premiere writer in industry, a solicit that mentions “Star Wars action that collides with Game of Thrones”, written by Brian K. Vaughn, what more do you need here? This is a no brainer folks.

Brian K. Vaughn is well known for his epic comic series from Vertigo; Y The Last Man. If you’re looking for a nice collector’s item, the number one issue will cost you about $40. But buy the trade if you want to read the best written comic material in some time. A nice collector’s piece to own from Brian would be one of his first published works.  Marvel’s Tales From the Age of Apocalypse #2 from 1996 would be the one! This comic should (unfortunately) be found in one of those 50 cent boxes at your local shop. Pick this up and brag to your friends that you own Brian’s first work.

Brian (unfortunately) was a part of one of the biggest errors to ever occur in comic book history back in 1998. Wolverine #131 had an anti-Semitism word that rocked the comic book industry. Brian did NOT have anything to do with this error, but Marvel quickly retracted the comic and reissued the correct wording. The comic commanded some serious cash in the aftermarket after word got out about the error, but cooled down tremendously over time. The error book is only $6 these days.Marvel Comics will milk the new Avengers movie for all it’s worth with a new Avengers title Avengers Assemble #1. Will the big “reveal” happen that everyone suspects in Battle Scars #5? If you don’t know what that may be, pick up a copy and found out!

DC’s Suicide Squad #7 gives the reader the origin of Harley Quinn. Her first appearance of course is in Batman Harley Quinn from 1999. Vertigo will offer up an interesting look into politics, intrigue, and aliens. Yes it’s an election year folks! Saucer Country #1, sounds like fun!

Check out some lovely covers coming your way this week below.

See you soon. Invest wisely.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 3-7-12

Welcome to InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 3-7-12.

First off, in case you missed the release of the latest InvestComics You Tube video you can catch it right below! Wow look at that, technology! Just sit back and we’ll bring the entertainment to you!

This particular video was by far the most fun I have ever had putting together a montage. Although my video by no means is a new innovation with the piecing of questions together, but it’s “new” to InvestComics! I seriously owe much thanks to Michael Frick Weber for the inspiration to put together such a fantastic video. I’ve seen Michael work his magic with numerous videos and they are absolutely awesome. Check out Michael’s Videos on You Tube or just follow him on Facebook, great stuff.

Here’s the Video and description from the You Tube Page:

Image Comics gets the spotlight this week with their release of Hell Yeah #1. With a very “Millar/Bendis” feel to this comic, it may sell out due to that factor alone. But with award winning writer Joe Keatinge at the helm, along withElephantmen artist Andre Szymanowicz, this comic does not need much help to sell out anyway.

DC Comics brings back something old something borrowed. Marv Wolman returns with his original series from 1982 called Night Force. If you’d like to check out Night Force #1 from 1982 it would only cost you a dollar more than the new number one coming out this week. Actually you would probably find it in the 50 cent boxes at your local shop if you look hard enough.

DC’s Vertigo line will have a hit on their hands with Fairest #1. Built around the hit Fables series, creator Bill Willingham brings the Females from Fables into their own book. A beautiful cover from Adam Hughes will catch the buyers eye while Phil Jimenez’ pencils on the inside will keep the buyers around for more.

A few number one issues to possibly pick up this week include the latest in IDW’s Infestation 2 Event. The Turtles are in Infestation 2: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1. If you yearn for more of the Avengers movie after seeing the latest trailer (WOW), check out Marvel’s Prelude to Avengers #1……and rounding out this week, make sure to pick up Red Wing’s own Jonathan Hickman’s latest book Manhattan Projects #1.

Also as a reminder, my first written comic will be coming out from Bluewater Productions. Vincent Price: House of Horrors #1 is now available through your Previews catalog or any comic shop on line. You can catch a 5 page preview on Bluewater’s web site right now!

Check out some fantastic covers coming to a shelf near you this week below.

And yes the Stan Lee Interview from InvestComics will be here soon!

Have a great week. Invest wisely.
