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!

Hillbilly #3 – Eric Powell’s Hillbilly series is on fire. The first two issues sold out upon release and now the third has done the same.

Vikings Uprising #1 – This debut issue has about six variant covers and they are all sold out. Titan Comics with another hit comic on their hands.

Surgeon X #1 – New Image Comics series could be a sleeper. Drink your coffee, stay up on this one. 

X-O Manowar #50 – This anniversary issue is busting out with 64 pages. Various creators contribute. An all new X-O Manowar could emerge from this comic. Many, many variants available. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #443 article to see our favorites. 

Generation Zero #2 – We say that the Generation X team will be a force within Valiant Entertainments arsenal sooner rather than later. Get on the early issues before that time comes and you’re left behind.

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: Batman The Cult #1 (1998) 9.8. Here is a classic Batman story told in four issues from two of the industries best in the biz. Writer Jim Starlin and artist Bernie Wrightson have their hands on this series. They also have their hand in actually signing the cover of this fabulous comic. A MERE $79.99 price tag for two legends of the industry signing the cover here. This is a beauty at that price, for this grade. Buy this now, here, before it’s gone forever. This will be a sure fire collectors item 25 years from now. Jim and Bernie are comic book industry legends because of their styles and the way they told their stories. The industry has learned and follows these two giants because of their amazing talents. This is an amazing book to own. Period.

Love when cover artist get creative and do their horizontal (sideways) covers. Artist; Amy Reeder gives comic fans her sideways cover; Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #11. Love it!

Marvel readers be warned, New Avengers #16 will bring some big time twist and turns within the pages of this book on Wednesday.

InvestComics has a serious influence on the comic book market and industry. Sorry haters, but the truth be told. We mentioned the first issue of Spider-Man Deadpool #1 as a no-brainer speculative/read comic quite a while ago. We predicted a sell out. Naturally (and obviously) this happened. It’s on its 8th printing. As each issue came out we told fans to keep getting each issue. Not only because the series was a well written, action packed book, but the fact that each issue kept selling out. We stated this phrase; “…..each book in this series keeps selling out, so get on top of this…” Well guess who now uses that line as part of their “up-sell” of this series? Yes you got it, Marvel does! You’re welcome guys/gals! So with all of our gloating and patting ourselves on the back out of the way, we arrive to Spider-Man Deadpool #9 this week. Itsy-Bitsy first appeared in the last issue, find out who or what she’s about this coming Wednesday. As for the series? We’re still in the bull market here (bullish). Hey Marvel…….”We’re still in bull market mode regarding the Spider-Man Deadpool series”. It’s okay, you can use it if you’d like, just some credit this time maybe?? And hey Image Comics, the same to you! C’mon guys! Relax fanboys, just having fun here. Save your thread messages and emails, we never listen to what you have to say anyway.

Doctor Strange And The Sorcerers Supreme #1 will debut in late October. It will feature the first appearance of some characters on the new team Doctor Strange will put together. Marvel clued fans onto this info a while back, but it looks as though fans may get the first appearance(s) happening a bit earlier in this week’s Doctor Strange Annual #1. The Sorcerers Supreme team may appear in this book before their ‘official’ debut a few weeks later in late October.
Deadpool Annual #1 will feature his ‘Insufferable Pals’. Those pals will be Firestar and Iceman. This annual is obviously spoofing on the Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends #1 from 1981, which happens to feature the first appearance of Firestar in Marvel’s continuity.
Spider-Gwen #12 pits Spider-Gwen against the Punisher. Should be a fun fight! Go Frank! (Did we say that out loud?). A very cool B&W Baltimore Comic Con variant exist of the regular cover on Ebay. Be sure to check that cover out too when you click the link. 
Cosplay guru Riki ‘Riddle’ Lecotey has sold out her Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #12 variant cover. Kudos Riki!

Writer Dan Jurgens and artist Ryan Sook bring fans the new Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 title. The delayed Blue Beetle #1 comes out this week. This book is brought to us by Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (pencils).
A few weeks ago, readers learned more about the villain Harley Sinn. Find out who Harley Sinn actually is in the revealing of her identity in Harley Quinn And Her Gang Of Harleys #6.
Deathstroke writer Christopher Priest continues to make his title a go-to book each month. Deathstroke #3 brings Rose Wilson (The Ravager) front and center. Rose Wilson (Ravager) first appeared in Deathstroke The Terminator #15 (1992). A very affordable first appearance…..at the moment. And check out the awesome Shane Davis variant. The Ravager looks fantastic. And also, have you seen our Deathstroke checklist that came out in May 2015 on InvestComics? It’s quite the extensive list.

Not only will Valiant Entertainment’s X-O Manowar #50 be a spectacular 64 page anniversary issue, but the variant covers that will accompany this issue are gorgeous. We’ve narrowed down to four covers we love the most, but readers should, without a doubt get a copy of X-O Manowar #50 this Wednesday no matter which cover! Here are the four covers we dig the most; Kaare Andrews, Chip Zdarsky, Shane Davis and Phil Jimenez. The Phil Jimenez variant cover is an Amazing Spider-Man #583 homage. A cover he actually did himself! Valiant Entertainments new team book Generation Zero is making some noise. Readers should definitely be on top of Generation Zero #2. This series will gain momentum as the issues come out, be on top of this one.
Eric Powell continues to destroy any hope in getting first prints of his new hit series; Hillbilly. It looks like Hillbilly #3 will sell out by the time you reach the end of this article. Actually, nope, sold out already. Best get your copy off the rack if you want one.

The John Watkiss cover from Surgeon X #1 will turn some heads on the new release wall. Then look for readers to love it because Sara Kenney will deliver a unique comic unlike anything else on the market. A possible sleeper hit, be sure to pull this one off the rack. The best part? No variants, just one cover!

Writers Marguerite Bennett/Cameron Deordio, along with artist Audrey Mok bring the new Archie Comics title Josie And The Pussycats #1. Archie’s new television series will bring the ratings and the fans (and new fans) along with it. We think the Archie series will do extremely well, so you better have those Archie comics in order. We put out an Archie Comics checklist back in January of 2015. You can click HERE to get an early start on your Archie collection. Below you will see the covers for Archie Pals N Gals #23 (1962); first appearance of Josie and Josie And The Pussycats #45 (1969); First appearance of Josie and the Pussycats.

Alpha Flight #1

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 is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Alpha Flight #1 (1983) 9.6. This is the classic John Bryne Alpha Flight #1 from 1983. It features the first appearance of Puck and Marrina, as well as the origin of Alpha Flight. It has a buy it now price of only $46.75. Not a bad price at all for a 9.6. 

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.

Deathstroke #1 volume four begins this Wednesday. Look for Deathstroke fans to flock to this series as writer Christopher Priest will bring in new readers as well.
John Constantine will return this week; Hellblazer #1. Writer Simon Oliver and artist Moritat bring the new story.
Jaime Reyes, A.K.A. Blue Beetle will get his own series starting this Wednesday. Jaime’s first appearances as himself and as BB are very easy finds and extremely easy on the wallet too. Infinite Crisis #3 (2006) is the first appearance of Jaime Reyes. It takes Reyes two issues to get his gear together and in Infinite Crisis #5 (2006) he first appears as Blue Beetle. The creative team of Blue Beetle Rebirth #1 consist of legend Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (art).
A disturbingly awesome Steve Dillon cover on Sixpack And Dogwelder Hard-Traveling Heroz #1 peeks our interest on what the inside may bring. Writer Garth Ennis and artist John McCrea return to their Section Eight creation. Garth and John first created Six-Pack back in 1996 – Hitman #9. Dogwelder(2) first appeared in Convergence Harley Quinn #2 (2015).

The H.I.V.E. Queen plans on getting under the Teen Titans’ nerves in Teen Titans #23. In a long line of new 52 characters and new female comic characters, H.I.V.E. Queen is kinda neat. Check out her first appearance in Superman #21 (2013). We’re not too sure if that issue is a cameo or not, so be sure to check out Superman #22 (2013) as well. The Superman #22 Kenneth Rocafort cover rocks too!

It’s always a good thing to be alerted that Spider-Man will fight Venom. So here’s your alert. Venom Space Knight #11; Spidey vs. Venom. Has Spidey fought the “Space Knight” Venom though? Is this a first?
Deadpool #17 features the villain Madcap. The Deadpool comics have a knack of reviving comic characters from the past no one either cared too much for or forgot about altogether. So with that said, Madcap’s first appearance was in Captain America #307 (1985).

InvestComics informed our readers about Scout Comics’ Once Our Land #1 a few weeks ago and it sold out right after our article was released. An immediate aftermarket sensation and Once Our Land #2 will be no exception. Watch as this issue goes into immediate demand as well this week.
From Chapter House Publishing this week comes Northguard #1. Coming from the pages of their other Canadian hero Captain Canuck. To find Northguard’s very first appearance though, you’d have to go all the way back to 1984’s New Triumph Northguard #1 from Matrix Graphic Series. There’s a few available on Ebay.

SOLD OUT New #1 and #2 Comics for January 29 2014 Release Week

SOLD OUT New #1 and #2 Comics for January 29 2014 Release Week

Article by comic book historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com
Support new comics !
This column is here to help promote brand new comic book series.
Pictured are the 3 new series that are selling out the fastest at Diamond !

NewComics20140129

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.

This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!

So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.
Diamond data of copies still available listed below compiled 6 days BEFORE release date!

FARLAINE THE GOBLIN #1 – in Stores Sept 25 – Interview with Studio Farlaine

FARLAINE THE GOBLIN #1 first issue is in stores this week on September 25th 2013
Top notch artwork and a very small print run!
Retailers were sent an advance copy a few months ago.
FarlaineTheGoblin1
This is a fairy tale.

This week Terry Hoknes at www.HoknesComics.com spoke with Studio Farlaine(www.Farlaine.com) who explained the comic story and makes sense of the various printings.

This week #1 comes out shipped through Diamond to all comic stores. This is the first time its been available in a mass print run to the public, however its not the first printing as a promotional copy was printed a few months back. In total about 300 stores in North America received 1 advance copy of #1 – the first promo printing, in addition to fans that picked up early copies of the book at the Boston and Baltimore Conventions.

After that point, a fire at the printer destroyed much of the remaining stock, requiring a new printing to fill Diamond orders. The new printing is an improvement and there are subtle changes making this a unique printing.

Some call it the 1st Diamond printing, the 1st retail printing, the “fire” printing or the 2nd printing.

To confuse matters #1 was originally listed by Diamond as shipping to stores on July 17th(this was the promotional copies), and then combined with the fire the September release date was pushed back. These delays and changes made it harder for retailers to order copies during July and August as the Diamond ordering system was confused about whether the book was sold out or just not available.

Farlaine the Goblin, a tree goblin shaman from the Forest of Fin-Din, has spent years wandering the very many Oddlands of Wug in search of a forest to call his own. He only has 10 lands left

Farlaine has been searching for years. He’s had a lot of failures. His tree is getting a little beat up. He only has 10 lands left to explore of the hundreds he started with. None of the remaining options sound promising, and if he finishes exploring the world without finding a forest, poor Ehrenwort will wither and die, and he will wander like a ronin forever.

We follow Farlaine and Ehrenwort as they continue through the remaining lands, each with a distinctive trait indicated in their names – The Tinklands, The Saltlands, The Racelands, The Twistlands, The Winglands, The Vaultlands, The Traplands, etc.

TH: I recall Farlaine #1 was scheduled to come out on July 17th and at the time Diamond was saying no more copies were available – but now i’m wondering does that mean it sold out OR was it due to the delay that they just were saying none were available?

SF: Ahh, this was a Diamond mistake. The book was only solicited in July and we sent off 300 free copies that month. Somehow they slipped into Diamond’s system as normal books, so suddenly all of these sites started reporting that book 1 was being released in mid-July. That was only the free copies. The book was scheduled for September 4th since the beginning, and only shifted after the fire.
Farlaine 2 was solicited in August and will come out in late October. I haven’t heard sales numbers yet but expect them to trickle in sometime in the next week. What’s funny about this book is that we also sent off free copies, 450 this time, but they arrived late!! So they would only have gotten to stores last week, after the deadline. Diamond had discussed possibly ordering extra surplus in case late orders came in, but I never heard any more about that. So I would not be surprised if book 2 sells out just because of the timing glitch!

TH: Which brings up a question of #2. Are there then 2 printings of #2 as well? The first batch you printed up for promo but then you are going back to the printer for the official solicitation?

SF:
Yes, that’s right. We did a first printing in time for promo copies and reviewers, but since we didn’t know the sales number for even book 1 yet, we didn’t know how many to print for the public. So when we got the orders for book 2 we did a second identical printing using the same files. Book 3 will only be a single printing.

In both cases, books 1 and 2, I printed a few hundred extra copies for conventions and people buying through the website. On the positive side book 3 orders won’t be due until after book 1 is out and we’ve hit the NYCC, so hopefully those orders will go up(we’re also finally offering ‘buy 5, get 1 free’, which was supposed to be offered on the first two books but wasn’t).

TH: Tell me about the print run of the #1 1st customers printing, the “fire printing”.

SF: They came in at 1,350 copies. My original expectations were lower than that, figuring a minimum of 700 and ideally 1000, which makes 1,350 seem downright spectacular!

TH: To complicate issues on August 15th, due to a fire at the printer, all the early printed copies of Book #1 were destroyed and the comic would have to miss the original release date of September 4th, which is why it was delayed again until September 25th. I have been constantly monitoring Diamond every day for the past two months to see how many copies are available and if they are even available for order I found most of the time I could not order any copies as the system had to deal with a July 17, September 4th and September 25th release date.

SF: Yes, very unfortunate for sure. Who knows what the orders would have been like without the mixups and confusion!

TH: An amazing new comic book, top quality story and artwork, unique format and small print run make this all a great book to check out.
