Buy/Bid – Edge of Venomverse #4

Buy/Bid – Ms. Marvel #21

Buy/Bid – Rocket #4

Buy/Bid – Secret Empire #8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week Marvel released a Banner vs Cho (Hulk vs Hulk for those at home not familiar or following along). This week we receive Jean Grey vs teen Jean Grey in Generations Phoenix & Jean Grey #1. No really, we didn’t make this up. Writer Aaron A and artist R.B. Silva.
Marvel’s Edge of Venomverse #4 will put the focus on Wolvenom. We’ve informed readers/collectors to pick up each one of these comics within this series. A breakout mash-up is bound to happen. That said, can anything be done about these names though? Wolvenom?
Deadpool makes an appearance in Rocket #4. Writer Al Ewing and art by Adam Gorham.
As the Inhumans television show and IMAX mini-movie inches closer, fans will be inundated with new comic stories about this team from Marvel. A bit of overkill as usual, but life does go on. You don’t like it, don’t buy it. Inhumans Once & Future Kings #1 is written by Christopher Priest/Ryan North and pencils by Gustavo Duarte.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
A great way to pop some interest and eyeballs onto a series is to have J. Scott Campbell do a variant cover. A Spidey variant no less. Marvel taps Campbell for the Secret Empire #8 Spidey variant. Expect a quick sellout.
A new Star Wars comic debuts this Wednesday. Star Wars Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO #1. Long title, but almost guaranteed to be another great read. Written by Duane Swierczynski and drawn by Fernando Blanco.
Ms. Marvel #21 could be a first appearance. Let’s all check out this comic.

Buy/Bid – Action Comics #985

Buy/Bid – Azrael #1

Buy/Bid – Detective Comics #962

Buy/Bid – Superman #32

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Detective Comics #962 will bring back a fan fav from the 90’s. Azrael is back with a new look and looking like a bad as*. Expect a new series to spin off for the Azrael character later this year. Azrael first appeared in Batman Sword of Azrael #1 (1992).

‘Mr. Oz makes his final move’ in Action Comics #985. We wait with baited breath to see what that move entails. Mr. Oz first appeared in Superman #32 (2014).
Will Bizarro die? Probably not, but Red Hood and The Outlaws #13 wants us to believe he may.
A new series from writer Tom King (Batman) and artist Mitch Gerads; Mister Miracle #1.

Buy/Bid – Generations #1

Buy/Bid – Inhumans #1

Buy/Bid – Cassian & K-2SO #1

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
A new horror comic from Image Comics; Redlands #1. Writers by Jordie Bellaire(artist)/Vanesa Del Rey
Dynamite Entertainment is piggybacking off of the successful Batman/Shadow team-up mini-series this Wednesday. The Shadow #1 enters its ninth volume, not counting the seventeen one-shots and team-up books. This character was first introduced in 1940’s Shadow Comics #1. A recent graded 6.0 sold for $2400. Not only does this comic carry the first appearance of Shadow, but it also features the first appearance of Doc Savage. A great buy at $2400 here. Now back to the year 2017. The Shadow #1 from Dynamite Entertainment will be written by Simon Spurrier and art by Daniel HDR. Awesome Tyler Kirkman variant cover too (This will make the Best Comic Covers this week!).

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 11-11-09

icfp111109.gif

 

 

 

 

Mark Waid and Warren Ellis each have a number One issue coming this week. 2 Doctors also have number one issues. More inside…..

 
strangetales110_1963_1500.gifstrange1.gifIt’s sort of funny how Marvel basically said to Stephen Strange, ‘forget you you’re lame, we want a new Sorcerer Supreme.’ Then they say, ‘we’re sorry here is your own ongoing series for your troubles, no hard feelings.’ If I were Stephen, I would put some dark magic on someone’s as* at Marvel for making Doctor Voodoo the new Supreme, but that’s just me. Strange will be alright in the very capable hands of Veteran writer Mark Waid and newcomer artist Emma Rios. Strange #1 will be a quick sellout, so if you miss it don’t fret, a second print to follow soon. If you have some extra cash for a silver age comic this week, look for Strange Tales #110 from 1963. This comic will be cost around the $1500 mark, a comic that might be undervalued with such attention given to this character these days. Look for a VF copy or better and hold on to this comic. The upside is better than you might think with this one. With Marvel tapping into the movie entertainment side of their library so much these days, it’s just a matter of time before the name Dr. Strange comes up and it will.

 
vengeanceofthemoonknight3.gifmoonknight1_1980_9.gifwerewolf32_1stmoonknight.gifVengeance of the Moon Knight #3 guest stars an original cast member from his first series from 1980. Raoul Bushman first appeared in Moon Knight #1, which was the first solo series for Marvel’s white knight. It’s a real bargain at only $9. With Moon Knight doing so well these days with the ‘Vengeance’ series that 1980 comic is looking nicer at the $9 price tag. Writer Gregg Hurwitz is taking Moon Knight to another level (as mentioned in previous Hot Picks) and should be hovering on your radar screen. The same applies here that applied to Dr. Strange regarding the movie reference. The White Knight though has even more upside than Strange when it comes to value. Werewolf by Night #32 would cost you around $100. This is a tremendous buying opportunity if you can find yourself a nice copy. A purchase here should result in a hold position for quite some time with some great upside here fans.
batman693.gifbatmandocsavagespecial1.gifshadowcomics_1940_9000_1stdocsav.gifBatman #693 debuts a new Arkham Asylum as well as the debut of the Gotham Shield Committee and Black Mask’s Ministry of Death. The latter sounds like trouble don’t it? By the way if you have some cash left over after buying the first appearance of Strange and Moon Knight, take a look-see at the 1940 Shadow Comics #1. This is the first appearance of Doc Savage, which teams up with Batman in Batman/Doc Savage Special #1 this week. It comes in at a heavy $9000. 
punishermax1.gifsword1.gifastonishingxmen3.gifA few number one issues hit the Hot Picks this week
with 2 sleepers and 2 non sleepers. One of the non sleepers will keep you up because all of the heavy artillery he walks around with. The Punishermax #1
series promises to introduce a villain into Frank’s life that will cause more problems to his psyche than ever before. From the looks of it, the cover screams Kingpin and yes he really could be a pain in the as*. Another non sleeper this week will sell out quicker than these dots I have to put between these letters, S.W.O.R.D. #1. This team is a relatively new one, first appearing in Astonishing X-Men #3 a few years ago. So if you like this team and think they have potential, this is the comic to get. If not, well then this is not the comic to get. Your call here! Sleeper one has to go to Ghoul #1. Written by Steve Niles (30 days of Night) and drawn by the LEGEND himself Berni Wrightson. This is a team made in heaven, well in this case made in hell, but you get the idea. Avatar Press will be releasing SuperGod #1. Superheroes worshipped by humans as Gods…..okay Mr. Warren Ellis, you have my attention. This comic is going to sell out quickly so do not miss it.

Don’t forget the Blackest Night crossover’s this week. R.E.B.E.L.S. #10 and Booster Gold #26.
