The Guardians Of The Galaxy will make millions of dollars and Marvel Comics will be jumping in on some of that cash. A solo Rocket Raccoon comic debuts; Rocket #1. This rodent is so cool that he gets a ‘first name’ self- titled comic. No longer referred by his raccoon name, Rocket will blast off with comic fans. Written by Al Ewing and art by Adam Gorham.
This week’s Deadpool #30 comic is 80 pages(?). We’re not too sure if that’s a true statement from Marvel or it’s just a Deadpool goofy joke thing. If true, this is fantastic. It’s always a treat getting more comic book pages to read. A Rob Liefeld variant will be hitting with the 80 page giant…..maybe 80 pages, but Rob is on board. The 80 page giant size issue (maybe) is written by Gerry Duggan, art by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Buy/Bid – Domino Appearances – ALL Ebay Sellers – Click Image

Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.

It looks as though Marvel is trying to work Wonder Man back into the Marvel Universe fold, more so. The character has appeared sporadically throughout many years and now maybe is ready to branch out once again? Maybe. Check out this weeks Uncanny Avengers #23, WW leads the story. The first appearance of Wonder Man is still at a very reasonable price point. Check out Avengers #9 (1964). We think Marvel will be giving the character Domino the same treatment. Although she’s appeared in many books over the last few years, not nearly enough as an A-lister. As Deadpool 2 draws nearer and Domino’s stock continues to rise, look for Domino to start appearing more often in the Marvel Universe as she appears in this weeks Weapon X #3. Domino will be getting her own solo series sooner rather than later. You’ll see. Her first appearance is in X-Force #11 (1992) (so says the graded comic book world). That makes X-Force #13 (1992) her second appearance…….on Ebay right now for 99 cents and your local comic shops one dollar box.
A new Star Wars series; Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel #1. Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Marco Checchetto.
Marvel adapts the Zombies Assemble Manga into English. Writers Jim Zub and Yusaku Komiyama (art).  A Tony Moore semi-zombie cover too.

InvestComics Deathstroke Checklist – Click The Image

That’s a whole lot of new storylines beginning right? Putting aside all of the part one stories coming from DC this week, a new number one issue, Justice League Of America Rebirth #1 debuts. Steve Orlando writes, Ivan Reis draws. A crazy Justice League team this time around. Lobo, Black Canary, Atom, Killer Frost, The Ray, and of course Batman. That’s an odd bunch right?

A nice touch with the Star Wars Doctor Aphra #4 40th anniversary variant cover. Artist Pepe Larraz offers Star Wars fans a still from the very first Star Wars movie from 1977 of the Leia hologram scene.
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #17 makes it to the InvestComics Hot Picks list. We’ve always thought the character is a bit overrated due to too much speculation around a possible appearance either on television or film. Of course this news (from a while ago) has not really come to fruition (yet?), but because of many collectors are holding into this news, her first appearance has not really come down to correct levels. That all said, always a vague solicit for this comic each month. A “cool way” to stay hip we guess. Maybe a new adversary debuts in this issue, but we do know that Erica Henderson’s cover pays homage to Superman #1 (1939). Remember to click these red links or comic covers to buy/bid on the comics (all available Ebay sellers) we tell you about!
Kingpin will get his own ongoing series this Wednesday; Kingpin #1. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Ben Torres deliver this debut issue. We all know Kingpin’s first appearance is in Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967), but he first appeared in a Daredevil comic in Daredevil #170 (1981). Writer/artist Frank Miller forever changed the Kingpin character from that point on.

Another slow week for the speculator. This means, as it always does, time to hit those bins hard, and scour the walls at your local shop for that gem.

Not too much coming out of a relatively quiet Thursday from the San Diego Comic Con. A couple of things; DC’s Vertigo imprint announced 12 new titles coming this fall, Hasbro’s Stormtrooper figure (the black series) caused near riots, and Image’s Invincible should have a video game/cartoon or something going by next year. Click the red link to buy the first full appearance of Invincible right now. We await several things from SDCC 2015. A possible full trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a look at the Justice League team together, plus a surprise was announced that includes Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Image Comics’ Outcast trailer, Marvel news, Valiant Entertainment news, and whatever else we aren’t expecting! Be sure to stick with the InvestComics social media for possible tidbits on some key comics regarding the show.

Harley Quinn #18 features an appearance by Captain Strong. His last known appearance was in 1986. Welcome back Captain! The neat cover here actually not only pays homage to a 1973 cover, but it also happens to be the first appearance too. Action Comics #421 (1973) is the first appearance of Captain Strong and the original cover to this weeks Harley book. Here’s the thing, a 9.6 on Ebay right now is only $200. Yes granted, we’re talking a fourth rate character, but still a better buy than a majority of these ridiculous variants at $200. InvestComics has always said to sell your moderns and buy those back issues. Well here’s your chance. A first appearance from 1973 that includes names like Curt Swan and Dick Giordano in it? 9.6 for $200 no less? A no-brainer here.

Now let’s talk about another Captain arriving this Wednesday. Check out Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1. Looks like a fun book. It’s always great to see Captain Britain in a title isn’t it? A comic InvestComics has been recommending for years now; Marvel Team-Up #65 (1978). It’s the U.S. Debut of Captain Britain. A comic written by Chris Claremont, drawn by John Byrne, and a cover from George Perez/Joe Sinnott. We recommended this comic when it was a $1 book for years. Now it seems to have climbed a bit from that $1 bid. Should have listened! Seriously though, what is not to love about this comic? And this also applies to the Defenders as well. Their first appearance; Marvel Feature #1 (1971). We recommended at $50. Should have listened!

While we eagerly await possible news coming from the Valiant Entertainment group at SDCC, we can look forward to Book of Death #1 this Wednesday. Valiant will start their all new event saga right here. Written by Robert Venditti, art by Doug Braithewaite and Robert Gill. Yes a hit for sure brewing here. Looking forward to a great read.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for New Comic Releases on 10-2-13

The DC 3D madness is finally over! Rejoice and collect your monies in the aftermarket because interest will wane very quickly. In actuality it already has! Prices have been coming down at a rapid rate and if you haven’t sold yet, you may be late to the party. As already told here on InvestComics Hot Picks, you had to watch the 3D market very closely because of the hype surrounding the comics. The gimmick was going to be short lived as there will be a couple of those rare variant 3D’s that will survive the aftermath of the collapse. The best investments should be held for all of those first appearances pointed out during the 3D run here on InvestComics. Picking up a few of those first appearances should ensure that if a few of these villains bust out, make a comeback, a name for themselves, become the next ‘Bane’ or ‘Venom’ character for a major character, you will own that first appearance and be ahead of the curve!

InvestComics Hot Picks 10-2-13

[scrollGallery id=309]

Besides the sold out gimmick of the 3D covers, DC does in fact have a hit on their hands. Forever Evil is in fact hitting a home run with fans alike. Forever Evil (2013DC) #2 is completely sold out this week across the board. The prize this week will be the Black & white variant. Grab this; sell it on Ebay for a 25% return or possibly more very easily; immediately. Do not hold onto these comics folks. These are not life changing altering moments within the DC Universe, barring of course plotlines we are not aware of! There are some great storylines going on within these pages, but nothing is foreseen to change the market value or demand to sustain the trend upwards.

A trend in the comic book solicits market also continues however in Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #24 this week. The words uttered so many times “…nothing will be the same, WE MEAN IT!” have been spoken far too often, but we as fans eat it up! Check out what writer Robert Venditti will bring to the table. Oh yes and the solicit also makes another common reference; “Lanterns will die”. Looking forward to it!

Batman Black and White (2013) #2 will bring legendary artist Jim Steranko to a Bat book again. Mr. Steranko will provide the gorgeous cover for this wonderful new series this week. It’s amazing to note that this legend has never provided as much DC artistry over his career. He’s thought of more as a “Marvel” guy, but when he does pencil any DC hero/villain, people take notice! With Batman though, his first official Batman work came in 1998’s Batman Black & White hardcover. Hard to fathom that given the profound career, he added Batman to his resume in 1998! The Batman work came in form of a tip-plate within the hardcover. Awesome, amazing stuff here folks.

In wrapping up DC here, Movement (2013 DC) #5 will debut the group ‘Graveyard Faction-death for hire’. Two sold out Vertigo books come our way this Wednesday; Hinterkind (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 and Witching Hour (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1. The pleasant surprise here has to be the sold out Witching Hour #1. As a $7.99/70 pager’ all things point to the awesomeness of Vertigo. Even though the trend of a new book debuting with a $7.99 price tag, it usually tends to make some collectors/readers a little apprehensive, it doesn’t matter here though. Fans know this is going to rock! All 70 pages…..

Marvel Comics brings back a Marvel Knights Spidey book this week. Hooray! Check out the almost sold out regular cover Marvel Knights Spider-Man (2013) #1 this Wednesday (Variant cover sold out). The first Spider-Man Knights came in the 2004 by the same title and lasted only 22 issues. Maybe this time we’ll buck that trend and go longer! With writer Matt Kindt and artist Marco Rudy on board, it looks like a success already! And with a new Marvel Knights book, comes a new Marvel Max book too! What a great week! Take a look at Fantomex Max (2013) #1 miniseries at your local shop this week. It probably won’t disappoint. If this feeler goes over well, and fans demand more Fantomex, you better already own New X-Men #128 (2002). This would be the first appearance of Fantomex. Another three Marvel titles are on the cusp of sellouts and collectors should be put on alert. Captain America Living Legend (2013) #1 will be the highest alert. With writer Andy Diggle/artist Adi Granov on board and the introduction of a villain named Volkov, look for a possible aftermarket bump here. Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble (2013) #1 is based on the animated television show, but it’s the bonus Lego Marvel Comic within the extra sized issue here that has InvestComics intrigued. And finally from Marvel, any fan of Superior Spider-Man should probably take a look at All New X-Men Special (2013) #1 this Wednesday.

Here’s a quick list of sold out debut comics and number two comics coming your way this Wednesday. Bushido (2013 Image) #1, Shadow Now (2013 Dynamite) #1, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #2, Reality Check (2013 Image) #2, Grindhouse Doors Open At Midnight (2013) #1, Pirate Eye Murder at Ten Knots (2013) #0, Lady Rawhide (2013 Dynamite) #2, Occultist (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #2.

That’s it for this week. Check out some covers of the week below. Invest wisely.

INTERVIEW: Robert Venditti talks GREEN LANTERN, More

It was announced last month that ROBERT VENDITTI (SURROGATES, X-O MANOWAR, DEMON KNIGHTS) would be taking over GREEN LANTERN after Geoff Johns’ departure. Robert was kind enough to discuss this, and some other things, with InvestComics’ writer Sebastian Piccione.

InvestComics: Robert, when it was announced that you would not be writing CONSTANTINE, as originally planned, you said that your increased workload simply meant that something01b0 had to give. Was this part of that workload, or was this something that came along later, and you did some re-juggling?

ROBERT VENDITTI: Green Lantern was part of that workload.  My schedule got to a point where I had more books than I felt comfortable writing.  I’d already started on Demon Knights, so I wanted to stay with the title.  That left Constantine and Green Lantern, and after talking with DC, we all decided together Constantine was the one to let go.  I’m bummed not to get a chance to work on the character as I’d planned, but Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes will do a great job with him.

IC: And, c’mon, GREEN LANTERN? This is DC upper echelon stuff! And to follow Geoff “I put GL back on the map” Johns’ nine year run…what’s that like? How do you balance elation with pressure?

VENDITTI: It’s definitely exciting, and the project is much higher-profile than anything I’ve tried to date.  As far as comparing myself to those who’ve gone before, I try not to think about things in those terms.  I certainly don’t see myself as competing with Geoff.  How could I?  He contributed more to the Green Lantern mythology than I could ever hope to.  I’m just going to tell the best stories I can, the way I know how to tell them.

xo-carynordIC: Over at Valiant, you’re starting your second year on X-O MANOWAR. Hal Jordan is an Earth test pilot who gets a cosmic weapon and polices a sector of space. Aric of Dacia is an Earth soldier who gets a cosmic weapon and defends against Vine invasion.  What’s it like working on these two seemingly similar, yet worlds apart titles?

VENDITTI: I actually don’t see them as being very similar.  Aric of Dacia is a 4th Century Visigoth, and that background very much informs his approach to conflict resolution.  He’s the kind of guy who’ll punch a grenade into your chest and let it blow you up from the inside.  Hal Jordan is a modern-day test pilot, and with that comes the contemporary ethics developed by the evolution of weaponry and combat over the centuries.  If these two guys were to meet, I think they’d see far more that differentiates them from each other than the one or two things they share.

IC: Will GREEN LANTERN be Hal in space, Hal on Earth or a combo thereof?

VENDITTI: It’ll be a combination of the two, but mostly Hal in space, especially at the outset of our run.  That just makes sense, given the events that will be unfolding prior to our first issue.

IC: How connected will GREEN LANTERN, GREEN LANTERN CORPS, and GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS be? How about RED LANTERN CORPS and/or LARFLEEZE?

VENDITTI: If we do our jobs right, each book will stand on its own.  Readers will get a sense of the larger tapestry of the Green Lantern line by reading all of them, though.  There will definitely be ties binding the titles together, some of them more closely than others.

IC: How much interaction with the rest of The DCU can we expect?

VENDITTI: In the beginning, not very much, other than the obvious interconnectedness with the rest of the titles in the Green Lantern line.

IC: Aside from what we’ve discussed, and within the spoiler-free editorial constraints, what can you tell us about your plans for GREEN LANTERN?

VENDITTI: We’ll be building on elements set in place during Geoff’s run, but we’ll also be taking things in our own direction.  Our first story arc will be what I see as a logical extension of the Green Lantern mythology.  And it’ll also force Hal to confront challenges he hasn’t had to deal with before.  Challenges that run opposite to who he is as a character.

DEMONK_Cv18IC: Will you still be working on DEMON KNIGHTS, and if so, what can you tell us about Etrigan and the gang?

VENDITTI: I will still be writing Demon Knights.  We have some big plans in store over there.  After the current arc finishes up, we’ll be taking the team on another adventure that will put them up against a very insidious enemy.  Vandal Savage, Jason Blood, Ystin, and Exoristos will all play an important role in the story, and there will be big moments for the rest of the cast as well.

IC: And finally, Robert as you and I have discussed before, I’ve been living your Plan B for a while now…so, are you ready to switch? You can have my students and I’ll write some comics?

VENDITTI: Actually, I’d love to teach, but I’d like to keep writing comics as well, so it’d be kind of a combo thing.  Not sure if that’s the deal you’re looking for!

 

IC: Robert, you can guest lecture to my students anytime you’re back in ol’ Brevard!  Thanks for talking with us!

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 1-16-13.

It’s only a couple of weeks into the New Year and the comic book aftermarket is rocking n’ rolling! Star Wars #1 (IDW), Amazing Spider-Man #700 variant and Superior Spider-Man have made some noise. Let’s see if InvestComics can find you collectors more comics to look out for with the new releases…..

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=213]

With Spider-Man firing on all cylinders right now, Marvel Comics is striking while iron is hot. Not anything to do with Tony Stark here, but with Peter Par…err….Doc Ock. This week Doc Ock takes to the pages of Avenging Spider-Man (2011) #16 as the new Spidey. The comic will guest star Wolverine and the X-Men. Although the guest spots are nice, this isn’t really the draw of this particular comic. Neither is the first Superior Spidey appearance in this book. The draw will be the new creative team of Christopher Yost and Paco Medina. Avenging Spider-Man (or is it Avenging Superior Spider-Man now?) has been a solid book for the most part, let’s see if the new team can sustain this or take it to another level. Well, another level will have to be done here because of the temporary layoff of Peter. It all depends on how well the storytelling will play out and if fans will buy it. As for the aftermarket of Superior Spider-Man, if you hold anything of value that you think you can flip for some quick cash, do so now. If you’re holding onto a comic that does not have Peter Parker as Spidey, It’s a commodity losing its value as the clock ticks on waiting for the return of Peter. Then once Parker does come back, you have great storytelling within your hands with no monetary value to it, which is okay if you don’t care about that stuff.

Superior Spidey will making another stop this week; Daredevil (2011 3rd Series) #22. So this will be the first team of the new Spider-Man and Daredevil, which is a complete a non factor. The issue boasts the return of Stilt-Man though! (Another non factor) But if one is so inclined to seek out a very cheap first appearance, Stilt-Man would be the way to go. Look for the very early Daredevil #8 issue from 1965 to find the ridiculous villain known as Stilt-Man! A VF/NM copy can be in your hands in the $150/$200 range. Here’s a nice selling point though. If somehow you can nab a real good copy, talking a NM copy here at or around the $200 mark, send it off to get a handsome grade of a 9.8, you have probably just made some money back. There are only six 9.8 graded copies out of 422 total graded. Not a bad idea to try and find that elusive 9.8 or higher here.

…Another year another number one Wolverine issue…..ho-hum. Savage Wolverine (2012) #1 features Wolverine in the Savage land. So what is the new Marvel NOW! to do with our most overused/floundering badass in the Marvel Universe you ask? Well you just throw some hot babes in the book that should do the trick! No really, that’s what they’re doing. No joking. The solicit says that’s the direction of the new Wolverine book; “Wolverine is all brawls, babes…” We all knew he was a stud, so what’s the surprise here right? The surprise may be in the first babe appearing in this comic. Shanna the She-Devil? That’s a character you don’t hear that much from these days. Shanna first appeared in her self- titled book Shanna the She Devil #1 (1972). The same applies here as it did with the previous mentioned back issue book within this article, but more so for this comic. There are only nine graded 9.8 out of 137 grades. A Near Mint $30 comic (a 9.8) could probably snag you some more dough in the graded Ebay market. Don’t think so, go try it and send InvestComics its 10%. Thank me later. Oh and a cover by the legendary Jim Steranko?? Ah yes, nice indeed.

It’s been over a year now that the new DC 52 has been upon us. A few surprises, a few not so surprises, a few “what?!” moments, a few “who cares?” moments and then the enviable retelling of origins that most fanboys are not excepting. Too bad DC says to you! It’s not about YOU, it’s about two things folks; a new story to tell (entire universe was stale) and MONEY! So with that rant we come to Team 7 (2012 DC) #4 which includes the “secret” origin of DC’s badass Deathstroke (has anyone seen him on Arrow? Translates nicely to television, now if only the movies would get going…..). So if you’re in the market looking for one of the most underrated villains in quite some time, look no further than Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke. He won’t be flying under the radar for much longer if he keeps popping up on Arrow and continues to be an awesome force on that show. InvestComics has been saying it for years, actually the first InvestComics magazine ever (7 years ago) featured The New Teen Titans #2 (first appearance of Deathstroke) as a major pickup and has gained ground ever since. Things are not much different today folks. WHEN (not IF) this character breaks out onto the big screen, it will be in a major way. He will be everything Marvel wants out of the Punisher that it’s not getting. So is there any draw backs to owning this $50 NM issue? Well for one, there are over 700 graded issues out there. 141 which are 9.8 graded. In most cases this would be very top heavy in regards to the aftermarket, so what does this mean for THIS particular comic though? If you can score a 9.8 after spending $50 on this comic, you have done yourself some justice. You will easily double your monies on Ebay with this grade. In most cases though, this would not work because of the overflow at the top here, but this character already commands the attention it’s getting and will continue to do so as time goes on. Now once this dude hits the movie screen, look out because your profits will go significantly higher. The bottom line here? Buy a beautiful $50 aftermarket 9.8 grade and get rewarded nicely.

Although DC is touting the debut of a NEW writer to the DC house, Robert Venditti is anything but “new”. He’s been around a little while and is just now getting around to the halls of DC Comics. One of Robert’s first work appeared in The Surrogates #1 from 2005 (Top Shelf Productions). Look for that comic in some 50 cent long box at your local comic shop.

Two number one issues from DC hit the shelves this week. Insurgent (2012 DC) #1 and Threshold (2012 DC) #1. Insurgent will be an all new series starting from the ground up, while Threshold lives off of the Green Lantern universe.

Other number one issues to check out this week are High Ways (2012 IDW) #1 from legend John Byrne, Black Beetle (2012 Dark Horse) #1 and Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth (2012 Image) #1 (which wins best title of the week).

That’s it for this week. Be sure to sign up for the InvestComics Newsletter! See you next week.

Invest wisely.

“There’s tremendous excitement around Valiant’s return, and they’re bringing with them one of the greatest libraries of characters and stories in comics,” said comiXology CEO and co-Founder David Steinberger. “We couldn’t be more proud to partner with Valiant in the digital marketplace.

Moreover, in conjunction with the today’s release of X-O Manowar #1, comiXology is adding the first-ever digital editions of three classic storylines from Valiant’s vast archive of best-selling comics to comiXology’s library of more than 20,000 issues:
