Keep an eye on Aquaman #16, a new villain will be introduced.

Star Wars fans get another new Star Wars comic, Darth Maul #1.
We hear from many collectors hating on the new Slapstick comic. Then there are those who dig it too. We’re with the latter here. So we’re going to keep on liking the character, predicting bigger things for him and pushing the book. Slapstick #3 features a jam cover of different Slapstick mash-up’s. Deadpool, Adventure Time(?), Simpsons and a few others, including Mickey Mouse! See if you could spot a partial shot of the most famous mouse.

InvestComics Bullseye Checklist – Click Image

Marvel rolls out the first ever series for Bullseye. He’s been in a few mini-series/one shots, Punisher vs Bullseye, Shadowland, Perfect Game and Greatest Hits. He’s never had a self titled book until now. Bullseye #1 will focus on what the villain does during his spare time….for fun. Not too sure of the premise here, but we’ll wait a see what writer Ed Brisson brings to the table. Ed has written books like Rat Queens and The Sixth Gun, so we have faith he’ll bring it. Art will be done by Dave Johnson and Guillermo Sanna.

Bullseye first appeared in Daredevil #131 (1976). It wasn’t until Daredevil #169 (1981) that the character takes shape into what he is today. The reason why is Frank Miller worked Bullseye into his story and the character never looked back. Miller wrote Kingpin into the next issue (Daredevil #170 1981), Kingpin’s first ever Daredevil appearance. Although Kingpin was around for a while before Miller, he made him a tremendous adversary as well in Matt Murdock’s life. Miller took Kingpin and Bullseye to another level.

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: X-Men #10 (1965) graded 4.5. This is the first Silver Age appearance of Ka-Zar. Although it’s a lower grade, the price is right for this Silver Age beauty. Priced at only $98.99 with free shipping. Jack ‘King’ Kirby art and cover. Stan Lee writes. An absolutely great Silver Age book for $98.99.

Here’s some Marvel Civil War stuff;
Marvel’s Civil War II #3 is labeled ‘Classified!’ We need to read it now. What’s going to happen within these pages that Marvel is so secretive about? C’mon Wednesday, get here!
And speaking of secrets, Civil War II Amazing Spider-Man #2 will reveal a person to turn on Peter that he’d never expect. Who will it be?
Civil War II Gods Of War #2 will introduce the team; Gods Of War.

The InvestComics Hot Pick of the week goes to DC’s New Super-Man #1. Many fanboys cannot wrap their heads around the fact that Super-Man is an Asian character in this series. The ridiculous notion that fanboys actually think their opinions matter is comedic onto itself, but some of the uproar shows how far off some of the actual thinking is from fanboy comic fans. Adult comic fans accept the change and or just go with the flow. They’ll give it a shot, they like it, they like it, they don’t, they don’t. Some fans need to booster up a bit and try new things once in a while and stop judging a book by its cover, or in this case; race. Which is even worse.

This total new take on “Super-Man” is a refreshing one. Buy this comic and give it a shot. Writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Viktor Bogdanovic are the creators and that in itself is enough to make us want to give this comic a try.

DC’s successful Rebirth line continues. It’s such a hit that many comic book stores are limiting their customers to one one copy each. Here are two to look out for this week. Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps Rebirth #1 will bring back fan favorite Ethan Van Sciver to a Green Lantern title. Nightwing Rebirth #1; creators Tim Seeley (art) and Yanick Paquette (writer) are going to be responsible for making Nightwing a major part of the DC Universe once again. The Babs Tarr variant will be a sold out comic.

Any new Image comic proves to be a great story. Horizon #1 is no exception. Follow the story of Zhia Malen, her first appearance, and the invasion of her planet…..from planet earth.

Sabrina #6 from Archie Comics will give us the origin of Salem. Yes, the cat! Awesome!
Best selling author Sarah Fine starts on her 4 issue series; Reliquary Mayhem & Magic #1, from Jet City Comics.
Aspen Entertainment readers get ready for Aspen Universe Revelations #1! This comic will start the new look Aspen Universe and combine all of their characters. It’s Marvel NOW! And DC Rebirth, but from Aspen Entertainment.

Empress #1 – This “Saga” like comic from Mark Millar will be sold out in no time. Watch for this Marvel imprint from Icon to take off. One of the key components to its success will be that it has to be consistent on its release. Millar’s Nemesis, also from Icon, was a semi-success, but lost many fans because of delays. It could have been a bigger book (should have been), but delays will kill things fast. Empress + on time = success.

Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 – Almost every week InvestComics preaches the gospel about Star Wars comics from Marvel. We say to buy them because they are fantastic reads and for the possible first appearance that may explode at any time. This week we have a character from the latest Star Wars movie making their first appearance in a Star Wars comic. What more do you want here? Okay, maybe have your wife/girlfriend or maybe read it with your kid? That would be cool too.

Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 – Darkseid’s daughter, Grail, will be making her indelible mark within the DC universe this Wednesday. DC might be priming her for bigger things to come. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #418 for more info on this and about Grail’s first appearance.

Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1 – One of DC’s all time greatest artist will grace us with his presence in this book. Jim Lee will pencil and do the cover art here. What more do you need? Refer back to the new Star Wars comic if you need more answers on that.

Superman #51 – A new story line begins; Super League. Be on the lookout for possible new villains or heroes in this epic Superman crossover event. We’ll probably say “told you so!”

IC 100 Club Pick: Showcase #75 (1968) 7.0. This comic represents the first appearance and origin of Hawk and Dove. Story, cover and interior art from the legendary man himself, Steve Ditko. A 7.0 grade for only $90, with FREE shipping, gets this beauty in your hands. This a must in your collection.

Look for writer Mark Millar to turn things upside down with the debut of Empress #1 from Marvel’s imprint Icon. It’s already getting billed as Marvel Comics version of “Saga”. And we all know how Saga turned out. Mark will introduce fans to a whole new sci-fi world. Hollywood LOVES Mark Millar and we wonder if Marvel Studios would ever pick this up and run with it. Who knows? It could happen. Either way, this is an introduction comic in the vein of Saga, one to watch for here! This will be big.

The new Black Panther series makes its debut this week; Black Panther Vol 6 #1. The longest running Black Panther series lasted 62 issues. Many limited series, one shots, and team-up books over the span of six volumes for the character. Will this series ever make past 62 issues? We’ll see. But the first issue here is accompanied by an abundance of variants to choose from. Pointless, and the need for 13 different covers (at last count, probably more) is a bit excessive. The creative team makes for a must get though. Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Brian Stelfreeze will bring fans back again and again.

Marvel will introduce a new Star Wars character into their library. Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 will have the first comic book appearance of Poe Dameron. Poe appeared in the latest Star Wars flick and now he makes his way into the funnies. Regular InvestComics readers know how we feel about the Star Wars comics. Buy them all! This one here is so obvious that if you miss it, shame on you! Besides Empress #1, this is the other big Marvel book this week.

This week’s Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 will focus on Darkseid’s daughter Grail. A book simmering in the back issue bins on Ebay is Justice League #40 (2015), the first appearance of Darkseid’s daughter Grail. With DC maybe headed towards a Darkseid movie appearance, who’s to say they won’t take a page out of Marvel’s film franchise and include his daughter, a’la Marvel’s Nebula (Thanos). Right now JL #40 might be a gimme at $15….the same price as some worthless variant this week. Maybe getting Justice League #40 instead of a pretty cover makes more sense. Just saying.
There are plenty of DC comic covers by John Romita Jr. to choose from this week. DC is proud to have John Romita Jr. on their side instead of those “other guys”. Some may say or think this is the first time John is playing for the other side, but fans of InvestComics know we’re going to do our research! John Romita Jr. first drew some DC characters back in 1994. Not just “any” characters, he penciled Batman, Robin, Joker, among some others from the DCU. The comic was Batman/Punisher: Deadly Knights. Art by John Romita Jr. and written by Chuck Dixon. John also contributed to the awesome cover. Great comic, great story, Romita Jr.’s first DC work.

While on topic regarding DC’s past history. Bloodlines #1 debuts with writer J.T. Krul and artist Kenneth Marion at the helm. Bloodlines was a huge crossover storyline that took almost 6 months to hammer out back in 1993, spanning from August to December. The very first Bloodlines book was Lobo Annual #1 Bloodlines Outbreak. This comic introduced the Bloodlines Parasites.

Deadpool meets Deathstroke

Click To Buy/Bid Superman/Batman Annual #1 Deathstroke meets Deadpool

InvestComics Checklist – Deathstroke.

Since the inception of InvestComics 10+ years ago, we have informed speculators about Deathstroke. At that time, following InvestComics’ guidance, the first appearance of Deathstroke could cost been a mere $45 for a collector. Now it’s a bit more, but you still may have some upside. Yes he’s already been exposed into the WB Arrow televison show world, but this character still has yet to make it to one more place; the big screen. And he will eventually. When he does, that first appearance with double/triple in value. He’s Marvel’s Deadpool/Punisher rolled into one. The assassin for hire is a total bad as* and DC Comics knows this. The explosiveness of this character brings nothing like DC has on film anywhere. Marvel already has, DC doesn’t. A Deathstroke on the big screen would be a hit. It’s already a hit on Arrow, but television doesn’t always translate to the speculative point in the comics market. Movies usually have a higher impact. Although pricing is a bit high in various places for Deathstroke’s first appearance, it’s still a buy. As a speculator, do your research and your shopping around. The moment you feel you have a deal, go in for the kill and buy it. You’ll be happy you did.

Below is a checklist of many first appearances and more regarding Deathstroke. If this character ever gets his due, look for some of the books in this list to command attention in the aftermarket.

Remember to click any RED links or comic cover to buy/bid the comic you want on Ebay. Don’t worry if you click a link or comic cover, you won’t lose your place. The click will open a new window for you on a new page, thus saving your spot.

Some Key Deathstroke comics:

The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) The first appearance of Deathstroke. Art by George Perez, cover by George Perez and written by Marv Wolfman. A classic comic and still a bull market here.

The New Teen Titans #9 (1981) Deathstroke didn’t come back for his second appearance until 7 issues later. An extremely undervalued book here.

Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) Part 3 of the Judas contract. This timeless comic features the first appearance of Nightwing and an early appearance of Deathstroke. Classic Perez cover.

Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 (1985) Another timeless classic here. It wasn’t until the fifth issue of this amazingly awesome story we saw an appearance of Deathstroke. George Perez/Marv Wolfman.

Wonder Woman #61 (1992) The same as the Hawkworld Annual book. A War of the Gods crossover book. When will Deathstroke make a regular appearance in the DC Universe other than appearing with so many other heroes and villains?

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.

300px-Shadows_and_Light_issue_1

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!

2464640-avengers006

Astro Boy 1 ( Gold Key )

The team that brought you the Lego Movie is working on a live adaptation of Astro Boy!

700273

Dark Horse Insider 37 ( First Ghost in the Shell )

Ghost in the Shell first appeared in Young Magazine but this one is the first American appearance of the work. With the cost of the Dark Horse series rising every day this one might be a sleeper.

3567881-3644227415-35653

Action Comics 573 ( First Matt Trakker )

first matt trakker

G.I. Joe 3 might add M.A.S.K. character Matt Trakker?!?!  If they do look to Legends 1, Mask 1-4 and this preview!

Adventures of Superman 465  ( First Hank Henshaw )

Supergirl needs villains too and the rumor is Hank Henshaw will be a part of the show.

Despite overprinting this comic remains Cyborg Superman’s best cover.

Comic Broker Report – A CHRISTMAS QUICKIE

I’m too busy buying comics this month to really  hit you with any more goodies than what I have here.  Enjoy the holidays comic collectors! 

Finally S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and it’s famous leader are returning to the silver screen!  It’s odd but S.P.E.C.T.R.E. didn’t appear in comic form until this TPB which collects newspaper comics of Bond and his villainous foes!

33673_20060322214932_large

Firestorm appears on The CW’s Flash and his comics start to move.  Here is Firestorm’s first Flash cover and first appearance within a Flash comic.

57486_20060827145352_large

Could this be the first appearance of Lark?  Snyder won’t say but I am betting on yes.  Grab this rare printing of Duke Thomas’s first!

3122109-bm_cv21_sdcc

It seems like every month I find a GOTG key I completely overlooked.  Even though the Broker had a limited roll in the Marvel film this is his first appearance.

31739_20060314175435_large

Daisy Johnson is all the rage.  With copies of Secret War 2 selling well on Ebay collectors should start to look for other keys featuring Quake.  She gets her handle here.

135402_20080711011544_large

The Titans show has been changed to The Outsiders?!  Well not quite.  Another network may have been forced to change it’s title due to the upcoming DC TV show. Issue one on the acclaimed Winick series , the Outsiders was heavily printed but the real key here is this mini which led directly into the new Outsiders and Titans series!

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.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 3/5/14

[scrollGallery id=337]

Marvel Comics will go back to the well this week with another Moon Knight Series attempt; Moon Knight (2014 5th Series) #1. Will it work this time? Will the new series exceed the proverbial magic number of 60? You see, Marc Spector has never seen an issue after number 60. 38 was his second high score. Now granted, some of his 16 or so series have been limited series, reprints, team-ups or utter failures in the ongoing series department. There are some characters within comic companies that see early success and or have a cult like following, so the companies cater to those in need of the hero/villain once in a while with the high hopes that more fans will latch on. It happens all the time. Failure usually happens too all the time. Moon Knight is the classic case in point here. But with all of the television and movie executives breathing down every cornerstone of every cinderblock within the comic book entertainment industry, Moon Knight is bound to get picked up. If you’re an old school follower of InvestComics, you will know that I have been saying this for years. Moon Knight is Marvel’s answer to DC’s Batman. The Dark Knight vs. The White Knight. What better way can Marvel stick it to DC than to have a successful run on the White Knight on some entertainment medium outlet level? Be it a TV show or a movie. Of course Marvel has absolutely nothing to prove these days to anyone, but Moon Knight would make a nice addition to an already successful run.

Let’s just assume for a moment that Marvel is going to green light Moon Knight as a major motion picture. What approach do they take? Well there isn’t much choice in the style/ambiance/feel you can go with except one; dark. It would mark one of the first major Marvel Studios films (new era) to be a darker/grittier feature. So where to reference from you may ask? There are two places and these are guarantees in the spec market IF Moon Knight ever gets green lit. Grab your pen and paper folks, these are LOCKS. The first spot they will look is 1993. In 1993 Moon Knight received his “Miller/McFarlane/Lee/Johns” on his book. The character finally got an identity like the previous aforementioned creators did for their characters. A mere mention of McFarlane and your mind is on Spider-Man. Miller and you go to Batman/Daredevil. You get the idea here. His name was Stephen Platt. Platt essentially became THE Moon Knight guy on Moon Knight #55 (1993). Anyone that was to ever follow will have to follow his lines. But it took about 13 years for the next creator to step up to the plate and except Platt’s challenge. In 2006 David Finch accepted the challenge and redefined the character once more in Moon Knight #1 (2006). Without a shadow of a doubt, IF Moon Knight ever sees the light of day, these two comic books will in fact (not fact really, but boy am I confident here) be the reference points to lead the way. Buy these comics now for minimal monies; you have nothing to lose really. It’s such an affordable book that it won’t even hit your wallet hard at all. Buy the David Finch variant, get it signed and graded too while you’re at it.

And one more Moon Knight comic to buy, a must actually; Werewolf by Night #32 (1975). That of course is the first appearance of Moon Knight. By all accounts, a pricey book for a character that hasn’t seen that much success at all. Odd isn’t it? I leave you with a quick nugget about Moony, then we must move on. Did you know that one of the first ever comics to go Direct was Moon Knight #15 (1982)? Check out that Frank Miller/Joe Jusko cover. Interior art by Bill Sienkiewicz. What a beauty of a book.

So stock up on Moon Knight because this might be the time that Hollywood finally comes a’ knockin’ so be prepared. And let’s also hope that this series doesn’t face the ominous fate that Scottie Young’s Moon Knight Variant has suffered.

Speaking of suffering an ill demised ending, rumors are swirling all over the place regarding Forever Evil (2013 DC) #6. Will Nightwing bite the dust? Does this really matter? We all know he’s going to be in the new Batman vs. Superman film, so he will come back JUST in time for the movie release. His death will spark an uptick in the market, but as quickly as it does, it will fall. Get this comic and sell it. Get it out of your hands asap.

She-Hulk (2014 3rd Series) #2 will guest star Hellcat. Check out her first appearance as Hellcat in Avengers #144 (1976) done up by some guy named George Perez. (Sarcasm here of course).

IDW will release Rogue Trooper (2014) #1 this week as a new ongoing series. Rouge Trooper first appeared in 2000AD #228 (1981). Some guy named Dave Gibbons was the co-creator. (Sarcasm once again).

Archie Comics makes their way onto the InvestComics Hot Picks list this week. Mega Man (2011 Archie) #34 will introduce Mega Man X.

Definite number one issues to keep on your radar this Wednesday. The very first Millarworld Universe comic, Starlight (2014 Image) #1. Tales of Honor (2014 Image) #1 will have a sold out sign on it, as will Veil (2014 Dark Horse) #1.

And the rest….Auteur (2014 Oni Press) #1Batman Superman (2013 DC) Annual #1, Darkness Vicious Traditions (2014 Image) #1, and Evil Empire (2014 Boom) #1.

In the “enough already” department, Magneto (2014) #1 and Wolverine and the X-Men (2014) #1. Probably going to be excellent fun reads, but no power behind them to ever sustain in the aftermarket.

Invest wisely, Carpe Diem.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

Record breaking numbers for the website as InvestComics expanded into a vast array of social media. New comer to the InvestComics team Rafael Rosario (Marketing/Media) of Ratchet City Comics has brought a new flavor that has seen InvestComics already taking the next steps to ensure that we are going to be even bigger in the new year. There are things coming that will simply blow away the InvestComics faithful and new users alike.

Teen Titans #44 (1)Teen Titans #44 (2)InvestComics Publications also began this year. A huge undertaking with the website and other media demanding the attention it does. No worries though, the Invest Pub will continue to crank out books in the coming year. Also be prepared for something very special coming in October 2014 from the house of leaders; InvestComics Publications.

All in all, 2014 is shaping up to be a very big year for InvestComics. With lots of changes, new look, new direction, and so much more…….can’t wait! 2014 here we come…..

Last week InvestComics started a new contest. Help get us to 2000 Likes on Facebook and you could win a Tales of the Teen Titans #44 SIGNED by George Perez. That’s right, the first appearance of Nightwing signed by the legend himself. Rules are simple. Share InvestComics on any social media site, let us know, and you become eligible to win. That’s it! The first appearance of Nightwing signed by the legend himself could be yours if we get to 2000 likes by my birthday on January 20th. Share now!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 1/1/13

DC Vertigo will have a huge hit on their hands this week. Be sure to be on top of Dead Boy Detectives (2013) #1. This Sandman spin off will have the loyalist flocking to the shelves for this one. Not only will the Sandman faithful be a part of the sellout here, but the curious readers and collectors. The Cliff Chiang variant is already sold out and the regular addition is probably on its way to a second print. Want to get in on the ground floor with this hit book? How about looking for a Sandman #25 from 1991. Some dude named Neil Gaiman was on the book at the time, but this comic holds the first appearance of Dead Boy Detectives. So…….what are you waiting for?

[scrollGallery id=327]

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #26 will be a (mostly) silent book. No reading required here, just lots of pictures. Think of this as the Batman Playboy issue. Although not a new inventive idea by any means, there have been comics with no words in them. In recent history however, one comic seems to stand out above the rest. In 1984 (wait this is 29 years ago! Recent history??) writer Larry Hama had the comic book hobby enthusiast pining for the release of G.I. Joe The Real American Hero each month. With issue number 21 THE silent issue hit. Not only was it a big commercial success, but the comic also featured the first appearance of Storm Shadow. This particular book commands some nice bucks as a graded 9.8 or even a 9.6. Will this silent (almost silent) Batman comic ever be a collectors item? Maybe, maybe not who knows? But it sure is fun reminiscing about that awesome G.I. Joe comic!

If you’re a frequent flyer around here you will know that InvestComics loves covering the variants. This week there will be THE mother of all variants. A $300 Superman Unchained (2013 DC) #5 Jim Lee incentive sketch cover. This beauty falls in the category of; if you got it, spend it because you’ll make your money back three times easily if the comic is graded a 9.8 and signed by Jim Lee. Can the same be said for the very attractive (and sold out!) Twilight Zone (2014 Dynamite) #1? The variants are fetching $100 (25 exist), $75 (50 exist), and $20. Follow the same guidelines as the aforementioned when you do acquire the $100 comic. But of course get the signature of J. Michael Straczynski on this one! So wait a sec here, a 25 copy variant on a sold out comic across the board, signed by J. Michael Straczynski, and a 9.8 grade? Look to triple or quadruple your take back here. This will actually be as big as the Jim Lee Variant as far as aftermarket percentage goes.

There are some other sold out variants to check out this week; like Legenderry A Steampunk Adventure (2014) #1, Revelations (2014) #1, and Lil Ernie (2014) #1.

Dark Horse Comics brings back an old 1940’s hero in Captain Midnight 1 For $1 (2014) #1. This $1 comic will reintroduce Captain Midnight to the modern day. It’s almost sold out, and rightly so! For a buck? If you’re in the market for a Golden Age book, you can check out the first appearance of Cap Midnight in The Funnies #57 (1941). A couple of sold out number one issues to keep an eye on for on new comic book day; From the amazing Michael Linsner comes Sin Boldly (2013 Image) #1, and from Dark Horse Juice Squeezers (2014 Dark Horse) #1.

There are two number one comics coming that are running at a very slow pace out of the gate sales wise. Bad Blood (2013) #1 and Baltimore Chapel of Bones (2013) #1. Maybe they’ll pick up….

And finally, a couple of hot comics with new creators on board to check out. Guardians of the Galaxy (2013 3rd Series) #10 features the awesome artistry of Kevin Maguire and Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #26 features new writer Jeff Parker.

Invest wisely,

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

Teen Titans #44 (2)Teen Titans #44 (1)Welcome to the 300th InvestComics Hot Picks article.

InvestComics Hot PicksNew Release Comics on 12/25/13

Ho ho ho! Variant comics are plentiful this week!

[scrollGallery id=326]

So what will Santa bring to the new comic book releases this week? One thing Marvel Comics will be sending looks a lot like 19 variants on one new release. Yes, no mistype there folks, 19 variants to accompany the release of Avengers (2012 5th Series) #24.1. What gives here Marvel? Is this really necessary?? Well from a pure business point it totally is. The money grab is in and guess what? You can play a part in the money grab too! It will cost you to lay out a few bucks, but the return might be worth it. There are three grand prize variants to check out on new comic day when it comes to “Rouge Planet #1”. Simone Bianchi holds two of these cards. There is an extremely rare incentive sketch cover for about $75 from Simone. The second grand prize is the Agustin Alessio incentive variant cover. A $50 price tag on that one. And the last variant goes back to Simone. It’s the color version of his sketch cover. That one will set you back only $35. Get any of these signed and graded a 9.8 or higher, you’ll be looking at a decent return.

Wolverine: The Origin #1 in 2001 was a rousing success. So now 12 years later we get Origin II (2013) #1. Haven’t we had enough of the origin stories with Wolverine already? Seems every four months a new revelation comes forth about Wolverines past. “Is Wolverine man or beast?” Yes that’s what the solicitation reads. Haven’t we been down this road before? Okay, enough picking on the Canadian eh. There are two variants the collector should get their hands on here. The first being Adam Kubert’s incentive sketch cover ($75) and the second is from Salvador Larroca ($35). Follow the same rules as previous stated for the Avengers book.

The last of our variant coverage this week deals with Forever Evil (2013 DC) #4. There are two beauties here; a $20 Deathstroke vs Lex Luthor variant and a super duper rare David Finch incentive sketch cover for $160. Both of these variants totally rock! Rules apply as previously mentioned to maximize your dollar on these variants as well.

A very exciting team-up will be occurring for anime fans this week. Robotech Voltron (2013 Dynamite) #1. For anime fans, I’m quite sure they already know the first time Robotech and Voltron hit the comic scene, but for those who may not know here’s the scoop. Voltron’s first comic book came in Voltron #1 (Modern Comics) in 1984. Robotech first came onto the comic book scene in DC’s Sampler #3 in January of 1984 as Robotech Defenders. The comic was an obvious sampler of comics that were to come out via the DC Comics line. The actual full length Robotech Defenders comic book didn’t debut until January 1985. So with that, Comico was the first to actually have a Robotech comic with Robotech The Macross Saga #1 in December of 1984. That’s the lowdown and according to our awesome Terry Hoknes here at InvestComics, Robotech Voltron #1 is about to be sold out.

And another almost sold out comic this week to check out; Deceivers (2013 Boom) #1.

Happy holiday’s. Invest wisely.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

indexMarvel_Feature_1_(1971)Before heading right into this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, there are a few comics that have been highlighted over the past week or so on InvestComics that need some love. Well not love so much, but some undivided attention. I’d like to point them out in this article so that speculators can plan accordingly during a slower week like this one.

News from director Zack Synder confirmed that Nightwing (aka Dick Grayson) will in fact appear in the new Superman sequel yet unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman. Great news for the comic book fans, but not so much on the collectors/speculators side. How so you may ask? Well, Dick Grayson becomes Nightwing in Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) and the problem with this classic comic is the one thing no hobby enthusiasts likes to hear……overprint. This comic is so easily accessible it’s not even funny. While the overprint shouldn’t deter you to still own this comic (how do you not own it already??), do realize that the aftermarket will be inundated with the first appearance of Nightwing as it already is. Great comic, too bad there are too many copies are floating around. There is however a way to get a little more bang for your buck, but you should know how to do this already…..

InvestComics reported on Marvel teaming up with Netflix for their next venture onto the small screen. It involves Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage getting television shows and all leading up to a “Defenders” mini-series. How lucky can a comic book fan be these days?! A comic that must be in your collection and is a beauty is the first appearance of the Defenders team in Marvel Feature #1 (1971). There is nothing more to say……..buy this comic book!

With the recent success of the Arrow television show for the folks over at the CW station, they are once again looking at the DC catalog and have found iZombie. Zombies are hot for reasons that are obvious, but will it equate to the demise, the watering down of the genre? We’ll have izombiePreacher_1to wait and see. Until then, you already missed out by digging in the $1 bins at your local shop for the first DC/Vertigo iZombie #1 (2010) when InvestComics broke the news, so now the question is how much of a risk are you willing to take on this comic? You have two options here. Go for the first appearance of iZombie in House of Mystery Halloween Annual #1 (2009) which has sold for more than $50 on Ebay or the iZombie #1 comic that has sold for as high as $25. Big risk here because this series is no Walking Dead and the zombie genre will eventually settle down some. What if the television series craps out? Too many risk factors with this one here.

And possibly the best news to come out from television land came late last night on InvestComics. The once very hot Preacher series from DC/Vertigo will be considered for a pilot from AMC. A Preacher #1 (1995) CGC 9.8 sold yesterday on Ebay for $185. If you have this comic, I urge you to get it graded and sit on it. It’s going to be a big book. The comic series was a rousing success and there is no reason to think that the (possible) television series wouldn’t be either. Writer Garth Ennis brings his “A” game to everything he’s involved with. The highly successful Preacher series is evidence of this. IF the Preacher gets its own TV show, Preacher #1 will be a comic to own, big time.

In the “In case you missed it department”

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/30/13

[scrollGallery id=320]

Believe it or not A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #14 will lead the way this week. It’s with good reason of course. The issue finds Max Bemis conducting writing duties. Why and who is Max? Well he’s a comic book fan and is also the front man in a rock band called Say Anything. He’s also the co-singer in a band called Two Tongues. I have to admit, I have absolutely no idea who the bands are or who Max is, but the kids tell me they know him and them! So why exactly are we talking about this comic again? Oh yeah, this is Max’s first published comic book work. The last time a rock dude crossed over, all hell broke loose for a little bit. Let me remind you……Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)? Umbrella Academy? Oh yes that! You remember now. So check out A + X #14 and see if Max pulls off a keeper here.

Harley Quinn begins her quest this week in her own regular series; starting with Harley Quinn (2013) #0. We all know by now that Harley first appeared in the Batman: Harley Quinn (1999) soft cover graphic novel. That classic Alex Ross cover is forever etched in our minds. So that comic is probably already filed away in your Bat box someplace. This week however, the Harley Quinn #0 Stephane Roux variant cover is sold out. Buying this comic will set you back $30, but how long can Harley really hold her own though? Maybe we’ll get an answer to that question sooner rather than later.

Battlestar Galactica always seems to be that red-headed step child doesn’t it? (No offense to red-heads! My sister is a red-head!). It’s always been that show that just can’t seem to get out of its own way. The first television series back in 1978 lasted two seasons, the second series lasted a whopping 4 seasons, and the original Marvel Comics series lasted 23 issues. No major motion picture, no talks of ever taking Battlestar to another level. Very odd no? Well maybe not. Maybe it’s just not a strong franchise. Yes, maybe it’s time to accept that Battlestar is not Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Stargate; Space 1999 maybe, but not any of the aforementioned. The intention here is not to bash Battlestar, but to find an understanding as to why so many failed attempts at a space series that has such a huge following. Dynamite hasn’t given up on BG though! This week Battlestar Galactica Starbuck (2013 Dynamite) #1 is on the cusp of a sell-out. That’s right fans, there is still a core audience that demands BG and Dynamite is here to provide it! Looks like a fun read!

Forever Evil Rogues Rebellion (2013) #2 variant is sold out. It’s only a $10 variant and it’ll probably stay put right there. There is nothing special about this comic at all except an exceptionally weak villain in Parasite wreaking havoc. A fun story, but nothing for the speculator here.

Although Superior Spider-Man (2012) Annual #1 might be sold out by the next new comic book day, it still has that “Annual” stigma attached to it. The Marvel solict  says “this one counts!” Even they realize the stigma attached. It’s far and few between that any comic book annuals make an impact on the hobby. They do exist, but not on a level of any expectations that collectors clamor for. In the Superior Spider-Man annual #1 though, we see the return of Blackout. The Blackout villain first appeared in Nova #19 (1978). Will the debut of Blackout be a draw? Most likely no, but the Nova character on the other hand………buy Nova. Yes, buy Nova.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #7 brings back an old foe. Lady Deathstrike from Daredevil #197 (1983). That’s a nice book to have. Not a be all end all, but an okay book.

If you have children then you know about Ben 10. You know that Ben 10 is on your television set when you are getting the kids ready for school. Yes I get the explanation every morning on which alien Ben has turned into and what he can do. Fun times! IDW wants my boy to read comics too, which is a great thing. Check out Ben 10 (2013 IDW) #1 this week for your kids. Get them reading! DC Comics were the first to jump into the Ben 10 craze and now IDW is doing the same. Good times!

A few weeks back InvestComics asked that you’d get a beat on the Afterlife with Archie #1 comic. Boy did we hit that one! This week the initial offering of Afterlife With Archie (2013) #2 will be a bit different. It seems as though the zombiefied Archie interest has died down a tad quickly, but do not let this deter you from getting the second issue. There is still might be “life” in this zombie Archie.

If there is THE number one comic to get this week, it has to be Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #1. Check out why our girl Zoey hasn’t killed anyone in about 72 days. She’s a radio DJ too. Not much to go on right? Well it’s an Image Comic, they release great stories AND it’s sold out already.

Cataclysm Ultimates (2013) #1 $20 variant is sold out. Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Force War (2013) #1 will be one to check out and one more for the kids Scooby-Doo Team Up (2013 DC) #1!

Don’t forget, help us get to 3000 and you could win!!

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!!

Comic Broker Report – November 2013

Speculation runs rampant this week!  In today’s comic collecting world the TV/Film adaptation is king. If it’s rumored to be optioned or developed the online market can heat up quick ( see Alias #1 on Ebay ).

Iron Man 17 ( 1:100 Sketch Variant )

index

The reaction to Iron Man’s tweaked origin has been met with mixed reviews. Either way this book should prove to be key down the road especially if Marvel brings back a particular Iron Man from the near future.

The Avenger Magazine 1-24  Shadow Comics 2

The_Avenger_Coverindex

The CW looks to option everything they can. This long forgotten Pulp hero has some interesting powers and could make for an intriguing show.  Issues of the original series and appearances from Shadow Comics are very rare in any condition.

Batman Noel

index

Lee Bermejo’s over-sized GN is a good read and worth a look for any Batman fan. As rumors continue to pile up concerning the upcoming Superman Batman film collector’s are already starting to scramble for key comics. If you are wondering what Affleck’s Batman is going to look like this design is currently the frontrunner.

New Avengers 10 & Infinity 4 1:150 Variant

Infinity_4_CoverVariantStegmannew avengers 10 first thane

Thanos has a son and that means a first appearance that’s likely worth tracking down. Like Kamal Khan we won’t know for some time if he will spark the  interest of collectors but it’s a good bet. These days most things Thanos related are doing well ( See Avengers 157! )

Uber 1/2 ( Bleeding Cool Magazine )

BCM8-600x910

As much as I dislike this series one cannot deny it’s popularity amongst collectors. In the tradition of Wizard Magazine this 1/2 issue should appeal to many. Only available in the print publication of BC it’s going to be hard to come by.

Infinity Inc 20,21 ( Hourman 2 )

As stated above comic studio options are the flavor of the month but Hourman? Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy when almost any comic makes the leap to the screen but there are definitely more deserving characters. The other question is which Hourman will they use? The first appearance of the original Hourman is pricey but if they use his son these will rise fast.

Clint 8

mv6Ct_aUlBx-dJB1GYnNFfw

Last month I mentioned Who is Jake Ellis? and it’s impending adaptation.  The regular series issues will be tough to find so go and buy this over-sized reprint of the same title. It’s rare only available in this size here and a highly enjoyable read that features other impressive comics from Mark Millar!

Tales of the Teen Titans 44

index

Here’s a George Perez classic that’s already hot on the back issue market! Featuring the first appearance of Dick Grayson as Nightwing, this comics is sure to remain a highly sought after  issue for years to come. Like Batman Noel, if rumor’s of Nightwing’s inclusion in the next film are true this one will become the hottest comic in some time.

Green Lantern 21 Sketch variant ( first Relic )

index

When someone like Geoff Johns leaves a title like GL there is sure to be some fall off in readership but if you have been missing the latest event you should be ashamed of yourself. Relic and his quest to extinguish lantern light has been a fresh and original read, something hard to come by from DC these days. (excluding Batman and anything by Jeff Lemire)

Alias 1, Amazing Spider-Man 4, Amazing Spider-Man 601

Alias_Vol_1_1 background

Technically Alias 1 is the first appearance of Jessica Jones until Marvel retconned her via flashback in AMS 601 making her first appearance in AMS vol. 1 issue 4.

With a Netfix series on the way look for her appearances to increase in value.

House of Mystery Annual 1 ( 2009 )

house-of-mystery-annual-review

Mike Allred’s izombie has also been optioned for TV. This one might just be the sleeper of the month! It’s hard to come by and filled with great stories from other outstanding creators.

-Topher

 

UPDATE:

Incredible Hulk 178 ( first appearance of the infinity gems )

2849141-hulk178

Here’s a rumor that actually may prove to be right.  Thanks Benicio Del Toro!

 

Sleeper

So Ben Affleck isn’t just the Caped Crusader, he’s also getting into the adaptation of wonderful espionage comics!  Sleeper is one of Brubaker’s best.  Look for these to blow up soon:

Point Blank 3: First Carver

Sleeper 1

WildC.A.T.S. 21: First Tao

Adam Driver to play Nightwing in new Batman vs Superman Movie?

Unconfirmed reports are pointing to ‘Girls’ star Adam Driver to play Nightwing in Zack Snyder’s Batman Superman film. Great news on all fronts here. First; Dick Grayson will in fact be in the latest installment, second; Nightwing will be in the film, and third; Adam Driver will possibly play him!
