Buy/Bid – Punisher The Platoon #1

Buy/Bid – The Punisher #52

Buy/Bid – Venom #155

Buy/Bid – Darth Vader #6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marvel’s Punisher The Platoon #1 is a direct take from the 1991 hit storyline ‘Punisher Invades Nam’. The two-part story was a speculative dream that began in Punisher #52. It was a hot book for a little bit, but then fizzled out. Doesn’t everything? The 1991 comic was written by Mike Harris and drawn by Roger Salick. The inker, maybe you heard of him, Jimmy Palmiotti? Yes, that DC Harley Quinn guy. And so much more! The current Punisher Platoon story will be from Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Will there be a bigger book than Star Wars Darth Vader #6 this week? (update 10-1-17: this comic could be delayed this week) Probably not, if this happens to be the first appearance of a new Inquisitorius. Creators; Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli.
Iron Fist #73, ‘Reintroduces the savagery of Sabre-Tooth’. Marvel Legacy hype, love it!

Buy/Bid – Iron Fist #73

Buy/Bid – Spirits Of Vengeance #1

Buy/Bid – Venom #155

Buy/Bid – Venomverse #5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the big two push the reset button, lots of cool things tend to happen. Regardless of certain protesting silly fanboys, there are always great things to look forward to. One of those things from Marvel’s Legacy launch is Mike McKone’s cool headshot covers. Take a look at a couple of them displayed in this article.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
The new Venom #155, John Tyler Christopher trading card cover is superb. It’ll definitely make it to our Best Comic Book Covers Of The Week. Don’t expect this eye candy to stay on the shelf too long though.
Venomverse #5, Declan Shalvey variant cover, that red symbol in front of the Punisher……..Batman, no? It sure looks like it. At quick glance, it fools you for a second.

Buy/Bid – All-Star Batman #14

Buy/Bid – Batman #32

Buy/Bid – Batman White Knight #1

Buy/Bid – Harley Ivy Betty Veronica #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A week full of Batman comics is a good week.
The Joker as ‘White Knight’ in Batman: White Knight #1. Written and drawn by Sean Murphy.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Soap opera hits Batman and comic fans. The ‘answer’ everyone has been waiting for will arrive this week in Batman #32. Will Catwoman accept the marriage proposal (Batman #24) from Batman? If she says yes (which does not seem too likely), this comic will be very sort after in a hurry. If she says she’ll pass, this comic will not be very sort after. See, simple math is fun. All-Star Batman #14 will be Scott Snyder’s final issue.
A fantastic crossover arrives this week. Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1. Archie is the envy of every fanboy, now add two more to the list as Harley and Ivy vie for Archie’s attention/affection. That’s four hotties’ after one dude. Superstar creators all over this one too. Paul Dini, Marc Andreyko, Laura Braga and Amanda Conner.

InvestComics Spider-Man Checklist – Part 1 – Click Image

Writer Peter David and artist Mark Bagley bring the fan favorite clone Ben Reilly into his own on-going series; Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #1. Ben Reilly has a few ‘first appearances’ to look at. Amazing Spider-Man #149 (1975) is the first Spider-Clone appearance. It also happens to be Gwen Stacy’s clone origin as well. Maybe we’ll get a Spider-Gwen clone one day and this comic will be in even more demand. Web of Spider-Man #118 (1994); First appearance as Scarlet Spider. The first appearance as Spider-Man; Sensational Spider-Man #0 (1996). That’s it, those are key Ben Reilly books. If you truly believe in this character, these are the books to own. There is a funny thing we noticed about the Mark Bagley (regular cover). Some of the solicits have Scarlet Spider with a hood on and some don’t. Is this a thing? Maybe just an update of the cover solicits (with or without the hood). Either way, maybe be on the look-out for it?

Old Man Logan ‘Wolverine’ continues revisiting his past and dealing with the present as he takes on Wendigo and The Hulk for old times sake. Old Man Logan #22, written by Jeff Lemire and art by Eric Nguyen. The cover(s) from this storyline are depicting the old comics from yesteryear behind Wolverine and we love it. Cover for Old Man Logan #22 from Andrea Sorrentino.

Buy Now-No Bidding – Graded Flash Comics $40 and Less – Click Image

DC and Dynamite Entertainment team up as Batman teams up with The Shadow this Wednesday. Writer’s Scott Snyder/Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo are on the case. The two legendary comic characters reunite for the first time since a team-up stint in 1974’s Batman #259. They teamed up for the first time ever in Batman #253 (1973). Two classic books which would make for a nice addition to your collection. Batman The Shadow #1 will feature a first appearance of a new villain. More of a reason to check out this comic.

The 4 part ‘The Button’ story continues this week in Flash #21 (part 2). While we love the lenticular cover(s), we repeat, we love the lenticular cover(s), be careful of the speculative nonsense that may follow it from various sources getting on the hype train. Do not over pay for these covers. We have explained these reasons regarding variant comic book covers (special covers) throughout our Hot Picks post within the last couple of years, but in case you missed it, here it goes again. Again, we love the variant covers as much as the next fan that appreciates great art, but there is one thing a collector must keep in mind when buying the variant lenticular cover(s) coming out as part of the DC gimmick this week. The guts. If the inside of this comic has no significance within the grand scope of things for the next 2 to 5 years, then guess what? You have a pretty cover……that’s it. Again, if you like a variant cover, you should buy it, We encourage it because nice art is nice art, we get that, but do not have the thinking you are ‘investing’ or speculating on a comic that will serve any relevance in years to come. We pointed out in many of our articles to do the grading test with CGC and CBCS. If you see a nice variant cover (signed maybe too?) that is ‘rare’ and has an asking price of $150 or $300 or even $75, you should look at the top right hand corner of the graded book. Shift the eyes there. Empty? Blank? Does it say ‘Joker appearance’? ‘Harley Quinn appearance’? Well if your modern variant says only that or something similar and not ‘First appearance’ or ‘Cameo (first appearance)’, then you have been duped into the hype market. A ‘rare’ modern variant cover or a special glow in the dark/3D/lenticular comic come with the SAME guts as 10,000 other comics with a ‘regular’ cover and is basically a non-factor in the grand scheme of things. If there was a ‘rare’ modern variant/glow in the dark/lenticular of New Mutants #98, well you’re on to something. The guts have significance. The Flash #21 Lenticular cover, if it’s graded a 9.8, guess what you have, you have a neat gimmick cover that will probably state in the right hand corner; ‘The Button story begins. Jason Fabok Lenticular cover.’ (This of course is all on assuming that there is ‘no significant’ feature in this book.) As a speculator, if you’re willing to pluck down serious cash for a 9.8, then by all means do so if you think the resale value will exceed what you paid for it. If you’re looking for a collector’s piece to just hold onto, get it signed and graded yourself and enjoy it. The variant market is completely skewed right now. The horse blinders are on. Collectors of modern books must refocus. The guts, the guts matter, not just a nice cover when it comes to resale value. A nice cover will rarely sustain or outrun the first appearance book or a book of significance. Some may say, but what about the Watchmen element being thrown into the DCU right now regarding Flash #21? Isn’t that a big factor? Well yes and no. Yes for now and no for longevity. Do you really think DC will hold this Watchmen twist into its lure? Another ‘relaunch’ in 4 years perhaps? If you think this may not happen, you must be new to this sport. The guts, the guts, the guts. The end.
