Here are a few possible first appearances to look for this Wednesday. Lobo Vol 3 #9, the first appearance of Wyvern Cross? Not too sure. We found Alex Wyvern. DC fans, help us out, same dude or not? As a regular reader on the InvestComics website, you should know by now that we tell you every month to buy up the Star Wars comics. Not only are you buying good stories, but you’re getting a potential aftermarket bump speculative comic each and every time. The Star Wars craze is still five months away, but the new Marvel comics are reacting now. Any sign of a new character or major plot line and the market instantly reacts. Darth Vader #8 this Wednesday will be a book to buy. An introduction? Maybe. If not, you have great reading on your hands anyway. Worth the $4.99. It’s a win-win. Check out Guardians Of Knowhere #2, new character Yotat graces the cover. And finally, Detective Comics #43. First off, what a fantastic cover from Francis Manapul. And check out a new weapon in this comic to take down Bats and his team.

The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows story line is firing on all cylinders. Spider-Man seems to always have a hit story line these days right? Well this week Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #3 will hit and the Comicxposure variant is a biggie. Look at that cover by Mike Deodato Jr. Awesome right? Maybe InvestComics will give one of these away! Stay tuned! In the meantime click the link and head on over to Comicxposure. Buy the variant before they are all gone.

Before moving on here. A reminder as we have mentioned so many times in the past here on InvestComics. Just because a comic is sold out does not mean there will be monetary gains to be had. At the end of the day, the sold out comic must bring something tangible to the table. Besides the obvious first appearance factor for a speculative book, It must bring a buzz/interest for fans to come back to buy more. Publishers have the responsibility to provide an on time comic to sustain that interest and buzz. If the comic comes out on time and the buzz sustains and the interest is there, it’s a mix for possible success within the aftermarket. A sold out comic does not mean aftermarket success. Many factors go into why a comic does well for speculators after its release. Know the guidelines, follow InvestComics to give you the scoops all the time on how to watch for these things. Another reason is the release count. This plays a huge part in the process as well. Too many copies make for a watered down product, thus affecting your bottom line. See, many factors. Stick around here as you do, you’ll learn the real factors as to why things do what they do in the market. We are the number one comic book speculation website for a reason. And thanks to all of you of course. So let’s move along shall we?

DC adds a little EDGE to their NEW #1s.

Here’s the latest group of DC #1s for the September relaunch.  THis batch includes a new Sgt. Rock, litteraly, since this SGT. Rock is the Grandson of the original.  Some good news for fans, in that Palmiotti and Grey will be contuing to chronicle JONAH HEX. And, there are some unexpected things, like a Didio/Giffen OMAC, and a new STORMWATCH with Stormwatch/Authority alumni Jack Hawksmoor, Apollo, Midnighter, joined by…Martian Manhunter!!??

Welcome To The Edge

Stormwatch is a dangerous super human strike force whose existence is kept secret from the world. Jack Hawksmoor and the rest of the crew look to recruit two of the deadliest super humans on the planet: Midnighter and Apollo. And if they say no? Perhaps the Martian Manhunter can change their minds. Featuring a surprising new roster, STORMWATCH #1 will be written by the critically-acclaimed Paul Cornell (Superman: The Black Ring, “Dr. Who”) and illustrated by Miguel Sepulveda.

Warfare: Past and Present

Blackhawk is an elite group of mercenaries made up of brave men from around the world equipped with the latest in cutting-edge hardware and vehicles. Their mission: Kill the bad guys before they kill us. A set of contemporary tales that battle the world’s gravest threats, BLACKHAWKS #1 will be written by Mike Costa and illustrated by Ken Lashley.

The grandson of the original Sgt. Rock assumes the command of Easy Company, a team of crack ex-military men financed by a covert military contractor, as they brave the battle-scarred landscape carved by the DC Universe’s super-villains. SGT. ROCK AND THE MEN OF WAR #1 is contemporary military story fighting under modern conditions, and will be written by Ivan Brandon and illustrated by Tom Derenick.

Even when Gotham City was just a one-horse town, crime was rampant – and  things only get worse when bounty hunter Jonah Hex comes to town. Can  Amadeus Arkham, a pioneer in criminal psychology, enlist Hex’s special  brand of justice to help the Gotham Police Department track down a  vicious serial killer? Featuring back-up stories starring DC’s other  western heroes, ALL-STAR WESTERN #1 will be written by the fan-favorite  Jonah Hex team of Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by  Moritat.

The DC Universe’s Loose Cannons

A metahuman mercenary who made a living taking out the toughest targets, Deathstroke will reclaim his fearsome legacy by any means necessary in DEATHSTROKE #1, a new series from rising star Kyle Higgins (Batman: Gates of Gotham) and artists Joe Bennett and Art Thibert.

Ex-black ops agent Cole Cash is a charming grifter that few can resist.  And yet he’s about to be branded a serial killer when he begins hunting  and exterminating inhuman creatures hidden in human form – creatures  only he can see. Can the biggest sweet talker of all time talk his way  out of this one when even his brother thinks he’s gone over the edge?  Find out in GRIFTER #1, written by Nathan Edmondson with art by CAFU and BIT (the team behind T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS).

A man loses control of his life as the omnipresent Brother Eye transforms him against his will into a powerful killing machine OMAC #1, written by DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio and co-written and illustrated by Keith Giffen and Scott Koblish.


DC is offering this sneak peek at this week’s ACTION COMICS #900. It’s…dare I say…Action packed! Plus, it’s one of this week’s InvestComics HOT PICKS.



Written by PAUL CORNELL, RICHARD DONNER, DAVID GOYER, DAMON LINDELOF and more; Art by PETE WOODS, JESUS MERINO and more; Cover by DAVID FINCH; 1:5 Variant cover A by ADAM HUGHES; 1:5 Variant cover B by ALEX ROSS

Superman returns to ACTION COMICS just in time for the title’s historic 900th issue, which clocks in at 100 pages! Everything Paul Cornell and Pete Woods have been building to over the last year culminates here in the ultimate Superman vs. Lex Luthor battle! But that’s not all – this story will lay the grounds for an insanely epic story coming out this summer in the pages of ACTION!

Plus, an incredible roster of guest talent help us celebrate this landmark issue, including the screenwriter of The Dark Knight, David Goyer; famed Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner; the co-creator of Lost, Damon Lindelof; and the creative team behind the hit DC UNIVERSE ONLINE game!


DC’s THE SOURCE Blog is listing the goods on the oversized anniversary 900th issue of ACTION COMICS.  The issue finishes Cornell’s BLACK RINGS story, sets up next issue’s REIGN OF DOOMSDAY conclusion, and much much more. Plus features THREE covers, by Finch, Ross, and Hughes.  Here’s what The Source had to say:

The 51-page lead story by Paul Cornell, Pete Woods and Jesus Merino sees Superman return to ACTION just in time for both the conclusion of the critically-acclaimed “Black Ring” story starring Lex Luthor and the start of the next act of “Reign of Doomsday”. As a bonus, Dan Jurgens, Rags Morales, Ardian Syaf, Jamal Igle and Gary Frank are each contributing their artistic talents to special segments of this main story.

But wait, there’s more!

Action #900 will contain short comic stories by:

– Damon Lindelof & Ryan Sook
– David Goyer & Miguel Sepulveda
– Geoff Johns & Gary Frank
– Paul Dini & RB Silva

And that’s STILL not enough…

Richard Donner and Derek Hoffman collaborated on a story that’ll be presented in a screenplay format that we’ll run alongside storyboards by Matt Camp.

Brian Stelfreeze adds in a two-page spread showing the evolution of Superman throughout the decades, drawn in the art styles of some of Superman’s most well-known artists


Here’s a peek at ACTION COMICS #899, due out next week




Lex Luthor has left no stone unturned in his quest for the Black Lantern energy, but he’s not the only one searching for it – Brainiac wants the energy and the knowledge it offers all to himself. Trust us, this is gonna be the most vicious Luthor/Brainiac team-up ever. It all sets the stage for both a conclusion and a beginning in next month’s historic ACTION COMICS #900, featuring the return of you-know-who…
