Darkseid #1 #1

Fanboys rejoice! The time creeps ever so close for you to stop pretending you’re not buying any Marvel titles because Captain America is playing for the bad guys (Hydra). Looks as though Deadpool has things under control in Deadpool #35. Probably not, but the end is nigh my fanboy, the end is nigh. You soon will have something new to complain about after Steve Rogers is reintroduced into the Marvel Universe (again). What to complain about next??……oh wait Marvel Legacy is coming. Oh boy, at least the comic fan (subjective reader) has a little reprieve before all the complaining starts up again.
And so Secret Empire #10 spells the beginning of the end for bad Cap. The Secret Empire will start to go bye-bye and fanboys…….wait we already picked on them already.
This week’s Marvel character & Marvel character book is Generations Hawkeye & Hawkeye #1. Who exactly makes these titles up anyway? Totally Awesome, The Crew, All-New All-Different, Infamous, and on and on. Sheesh, stop already. How about Hulk, Avengers, Doctor Doom, Black Panther? Yes, those are good titles.
Star Wars fans were pleased to hear the news some time ago about Mace Windu getting his first solo comic ever. This Wednesday, Marvel will continue their trend of delivering high quality SW books with Star Wars Jedi Of The Republic Mace Windu #1. A nice long title to roll off the tongue there. Mace Windu made his comic debut in 1999’s Star Wars: Episode 1 – Obi-Wan Kenobi (Dark Horse).
Thanos teams with the Avengers in Thanos #10. Imagine if this happened in the Avengers Infinity War movie. Imagine Thanos has to side with the Avengers to defeat someone or something even more sinister than him. If that’s even possible, but talk about throwing a monkey wrench into things huh? Well, this cool scenario unfolds in this comic written by Jeff Lemire and artist German Peralta.

Buy/Bid – SW #1 Episode 1

Buy/Bid – Mace Windu #1

Buy/Bid – The Tick #1 1988

Buy/Bid – The Tick #1 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of DC’s most revered villains within their universe will host his own comic special this week; Darkseid Special #1, writer Mark Evanier & artist Scott Kolins.
Black Racer And Shilo Norman Special #1. Written by Reginald Hudlin and art by Denys Cowan & Bill Sienkiewicz.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
The Tick is coming back. The Tick #1 will be written by comic fan fav Cullen Bunn teamed with Jimmy Z Johnson. Art by Douglas Paszkiewicz. The Tick was first introduced in The Tick #1 in 1988 by the same publisher as the one releasing this week’s debut; New England Comics.
Dave Sim (creator of the character Cerebus) will hit a home run with Batvark #1 (Aardvark Vanaheim). This comic is all kinds of crazy. A must here.
As the Trump presidency carries out, more and more comics seem to have the president appearing in them. This week, a voice that never hides from his own opinion about the administration, Erik Larsen, displays Trump right on his cover of Savage Dragon #226.
Trump’s Titans #1 (Keenspot); writer John Barron and artist John Miller.
New horror/sci-fi comic from Titan1Studios; Weathered Spirit #1. Written by Kyle James Smith and art by Ruben Rojas.

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).

Ms. Marvel #1

Buy Now

IC 100 Club Pick: Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) 8.0. When Marvel Studios hits theaters with their first female lead comic book movie, it’s going to be huge. It will make movie goers and comic fans forget about the Wonder Woman flick very, very fast. How can we say this? Well first and foremost, it’s an opinion. Secondly, Warner Bros. has not yet had an answer for any of the Marvel movies as far as the “level” goes. Will the Wonder Woman movie be good? Probably, but Marvel will out-do DC with their female lead movie Ms. Marvel. It will be set in modern day and appeal radically to the younger and older female audiences as Disney KNOWS how to do. It will happen. Disney KNOWS marketing. So with that confidence stated, this week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) graded at a low 8.0 and the low price of $79.99. This low grade will not matter once the movie hits and the popularity of Ms. Marvel is at its peak. This movie will be huge. This first appearance of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel will be untouchable. 

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!

The introduction of a new hero will happen in Future Quest #4. Writer Jeff Parker and artist’s Steve Rude and Aaron Lopresti are bringing it.
Two DC annuals to check out. First annual ever; Gotham Academy Annual #1 from Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher. The origin of the first Bombshell; Batgirl in DC Comics Bombshells Annual #1 this Wednesday.
As Warner Bros. is a bit late to the superhero movie party, DC is a bit late on the variant cover theme too. Justice League Of America #9 has a Batman v Superman Dawn Of Justice Cover. Who cares right? Well not only is the cover bad as*, it’s drawn by (insert sarcasm) some artist named Jim Lee. $3.99 cover price. We’ll take one please.

The “new” female comic character is still a hot commodity. Mostly hot for a minute, then cools off, but then there are ones that catch on. Will the first appearance of the female Electro in Amazing Spider-Man #17 be a hot ticket? We’ll have to wait and see for about a minute…..or maybe longer.
Marvel will go to the well once again regarding their success with Gwenpool and Spider-Gwen. In All-New Wolverine Annual #1 we’ll see Wolvergwen and Spiderine. Newer mash-up’s here but this time with the all-new Wolverine character. Although the Wolvergwen character looks like a first appearance, a “Gwenverine” character popped up on a variant cover back in August of 2015. Old Man Logan #2 gets the dubious distinction of being that first appearance issue. Seems to be much like the first appearance of Gwenpool, cover only. So is Gwenverine and Wolergwen the same character? We don’t make this stuff up, we just report it. 
We’re loving the cover to Silver Surfer #6. It’s the 200th overall issue of Surfer comic book issues. The cover shows many awesome past Silver Surfer comic books surrounding him. It’s neat.

Dark Horse Comics offers fans two number one comics written by two fan fav’s of the industry this week. Witchfinder City Of The Dead #1 will be written by Mike Mignola and World Of Tanks #1 will be written by Garth Ennis. World Of Tanks #1 will be based on a game that has an audience of 110 million players. That’s a whole lot of possible built-in audience to reach! Two debut Dark Horse Comics to pick up. That’s some nice debut reading material here.
IDW Publishing’s Jill Thompsons Killer Inside Me #1 is sold out. A lot of buzz surrounding this book. Look for a possible bounce in the aftermarket as readers latch on to this classic story put into comic book form. They’ll be delighted and the bounce may happen.
It looks as though IDW has an answer to DC’s All-Star Batman. It’s called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #1. Various A-list creators will contribute to this new on-going TMNT series. Look for possible introductions in this first issue and as the series progresses. This first issue features a back-up story from Kevin Eastman and Bill Sienkiewicz. Now that’s some serious duo firepower. Count us in on this series and especially this first issue.
Spawn #265 will introduce a new character and will also have Ant make an appearance. Ant was introduced in Ant #1 (2012) from Arcana Studio. HER last known appearance of Ant was in Savage Dragon #180 (2012). Will Erik Larsen bring back Ant for good? Hopefully we see more. We’ll wait and see.

Space Dragon

OUTER SPACE PLATEAU
Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon Hits Issue 175

 

BERKELEY, CA — 13 May, 2011 — Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon is celebrating the 175th issue of his long-running Image Comics title this August… or is he? After being killed not once but three times in the past 30 issues, readers might be wondering if the green-skinned, fin-headed freak that awakes in SAVAGE DRAGON #175 to find himself rocketing through space is actually the real deal… but they’ll have to read this special 48-page anniversary issue to find out for sure!
“I’ve really run Dragon through the ringer over the last few years,” Larsen explained. “Even though he’d essentially been killed by a mind-and-body-snatching monster called Virus back in issue #147 and then again by Overlord in #150, when it came to wrapping up the ‘Emperor Dragon’ saga, it became pretty clear that even with all the body-switching shenanigans, things couldn’t just go back to the way they were.

 
“I knew he had to die… but what then? After focusing on Dragon’s son Malcolm for several issues, SAVAGE DRAGON #175 answers that question. Definitively, I hope!”
Written, penciled and inked by Larsen, with a Vanguard back-up story by writer Gary Carlson and artist Frank Fosco, SAVAGE DRAGON #175 promises to set the stage for the next several years’ worth of Dragon tales.
The story itself focuses both on Malcolm Dragon, as he faces his greatest challenge yet in the form of the nigh-omnipotent Overlord, while someone who looks an awful lot like his dead father tries to make sense of a new life and a new reality when he finds himself aboard a spaceship headed for parts unknown.

 
“There are some who confuse what Erik’s doing on SAVAGE DRAGON with standard rock ’em, sock ’em superhero stuff, but like Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass and Robert Kirkman’s INVINCIBLE, this is a series that constantly pushes the boundaries,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “Very few superhero comics are as uncompromising or as propelled by change as SAVAGE DRAGON, and nearly 20 years after it first began, it’s still one of my favorite superhero comics ever.”

SAVAGE DRAGON #175 (JUN110478), a 48-page full color comic with a cover price of $4.99, is available for order in the June issue of Previews and will be on sale August 31.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 10-20-10

Last week the New York Comic Con knocked the InvestComics Hot Picks off track for the very first time in 3 plus years. The NYCC was worth breaking that streak, we’ll just have to start a new one starting right……..now. Great news for Spider-Man fans, Carnage is back! Maybe not so great news for Peter, but check out the new Carnage #1 headed your way this week. There will be 4 covers for this one. Jump on the rarest of the 4 variants and hold on to it. Carnage fever will heat up like it did back in the early to mid nineties. Amazing Spider-Man #344 (1991), drawn by Mr. himself Erik Larsen introduced us to Cletus Kasady. Comics Price Guide lists this comic at $15. Cletus later becomes Carnage in Amazing Spider-Man #360 (1992). Spidey #360 gives us the cameo of Carnage, as Amazing Spider-Man #361 gives the first full appearance. The full appearance will cost you $18 and the cameo will cost only $4. Considering how hot Carnage became at one time, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this villain heat up once again.

1aaa1aaaflragman_suit_of_souls_1

Going from one extreme to another, Batman villain Ragman never quite fit the bill as a hot commodity as Carnage did, a good villain nonetheless. So Ragman Suit of Souls #1 comes out this week. What does this mean for the collector? Absolutely nothing probably, but if you want to be on top of things, look for Ragman #1 from 1976 with a cover by legend Joe Kubert. The self titled number one issue was Ragman’s first appearance. This comic, like the first appearance of Carnage comes in at the $18 mark. So herein lays the question. You have $20 to spend; you have 2 first appearances to choose from. On one side you have an extremely popular villain from Marvel that has the potential to breakout once again, or you have a lesser known (less popular) Ragman that has a Joe Kubert cover, and is almost twice the age of the 1992 book (34 years old). Ragman being the older comic will probably be the harder to find in better shape, and is a Bronze Age comic. Ragman wins because of the age, the number of the issue and Kubert cover. Look for Ragman #2 while you’re at it. That issue is the origin issue. It’s only $14, another nice book to have in your collection.

1aaa1aaaflKick_Ass_2_1

1aaa1aaaflloki1

1aaa1aaafldcvertA few more books to check out this week are; Kick Ass 2 #1. Do you really need an explanation of this comic? Vertigo Resurrection #1 from Warren Ellis. With names like Ellis, Bernie Wrightson, Jim Lee attached, once again, an explanation? And finally Thor’s bro gets his own book Loki #1. He’s a bad dude, and appearing in his sibling’s movie next year.

 

That’s it for now. Remember to check out InvestComics™ TV. A lot of very cool guest coming up!

See you next week. Invest wisely.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 10-15-08

savage_dragon_pic.jpg Last week the Barack Obama comic sold out rather quickly due to national media attention. The comic will mark a significant long term investment if he does in fact become the president of The United States (see more on this in last weeks Hot Picks 10-8-08). Sticking with a hot theme and a heated presidential race, Eric Larson will join the fray of the presidential campaign and choose his candidate. Well Mr. Larsen is actually not casting his vote, Savage Dragon is. Yes the Dragon Rocks The Vote this week! 

 

savagedragon137.jpgSavage Dragon # 137 3rd Printing  This week will have a guaranteed sell out sitting on the shelves at your local comic book shop in the morning and by evening time that comic will be scarce. The reason THIS comic might be a better long term investment as opposed to the Barack comic last week is simply because of the media. Less coverage, fewer printings equal less availability. The solo Barack comic last week in essence was a blatant money making comic by IDW publishing (which there is nothing wrong with!), thus leading to the obvious attention and oblivious heavy ordering. This week The Savage Dragon comic features Barack as part of a superhero storyline. Not as much focus on this issue by the media, so you probably won’t be seeing that guy in a suit and tie coming into your local comic shop asking “Hey you guys got that Barack comic with Savage Dragon?”

 

Other than the Dragon making the Hot Picks list, there are a few others just to keep an eye on this week. Savage Dragon 137 is definitely a good pick up this week. The remainders of the Hot Picks are comics that barely made the list this week, but somehow did. Buy them (as always) at your own discretion. 

gbotherside1gcc.jpg

Ghostbusters: The Other Side #1  This comic will be a HOT item for a little while. Everyone loves Ghostbusters and it’ll be a quick sell out, especially the Graham Cracker Variant. The time line for this comic as far as investment is a scant one.

batmanand_the_outsiders12.jpg

Batman and The Outsiders #12  Another week, another DC fatality. DC is soliciting this comic as a ‘death issue’. I yearn for the days that DC will get away from the death scene and give a storyline that just flows in continuity with its universe. Here’s a newsflash DC, death DOES NOT equal sales anymore unless it’s a ‘significant’ character/villain or the storyline in general calls for it. Maybe this is why DC has fallen so behind Marvel in the continuity universe battle. Fans want ‘tightness’ (as Sean, owner from X-Treme Comics in Boca RatonFlorida says) in their Universe ………could not agree more.

amazing-spider-man573.jpg

Amazing Spider-Man #573  The award for most shameless ridiculous do my friend a favor because I like him promotion goes to………Joe Q! The variant features Stephen Colbert on the cover paying homage to Amazing Fantasy # 15. This is a little much giving Colbert the Steve Ditko treatment, but hey Marvel is allowed to get out of hand sometimes no? Just don’t make a bad habit of it. 

 

ultimateorigins5.jpg

sprmnspljmmyolsn1.jpgUltimate Origins # 5 & Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen Special #1  Both of these comics are lead ins to storylines that promise to be big ones.Geoff Johns says of  the New Krypton storyline, “Change is what New Krypton is all about. One-hundred-thousand more Kryptonians. He’s no longer the last son of Krypton”, that might seem interesting. Then there is Loeb saying this about Ultimatum, “It is the end of the beginning.” Vague but interesting nontheles.Rumour has it that an Ultimate charater will bite the dust and Superman will beat the other 100,000 Kryptonians up and win.Bottom line here, unless Lois Lane dies or Ulimate Spider-Man become a courpse, read these comics and just enjoy them. 

See you next week.

Invest wisely.
