InvestComics Wonder Woman Checklist – All Ebay Sellers – Buy/Bid – Click Image

DC Comics will begin two new storylines this Wednesday. Flash #25 ‘Running Scared’, written by Joshua Williamson and art by Carmine Di Giandomenico. This issue will give you more bang for the buck, it’s ‘extra sized’. Suicide Squad #20 begins the ‘False Flag’ story. Written by Rob Williams and art by Stjepan Sejic.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
DC’s Wonder Woman #25 extra sized issue focuses on every storyline since the Wonder Woman Rebirth era. That’s four major stories and maybe a few more sprinkled in. Writer Greg Rucka brings all of this together in one issue. Greg has been killing it on these pages of Wonder Woman, he will kill it here in this extra sized issue as well. Art from Liam Sharp and Bilquis Evely.
Out of all of the DC/Looney Tunes crossover comics from recent weeks, Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 seems to be the most interesting. The ultimate hunter hunts the ultimate darkness of night. This special is written by Tom King (no stranger to Batman!) and art by Byron Vaughns.

The ever so popular Venom character picks it up a notch in a new summer event starting in Edge of Venomverse #1. This series of books will create a bit of a frenzy as the next big breakout mash-up character will probably emerge. Who will it be? Will it be Venom Gwenpool, Venom Ghost Rider, Venom X-23, Venom Rocket Raccoon, Venom Doctor Strange, Venom Cap, Venom Deadpool, and the list goes on. So the best advice we offer here is to buy anything regarding the Venomverse so you don’t miss that boat on any mash-up that may breakout. First and foremost you’ll be getting a Venom story delivered by excellent writer Cullen Bunn, so it’s a win right there even if a character never does breakout into a spin-off or create a ridiculous speculative aftermarket surge.
Readers will learn more about the character named Malarus in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #16. The first time we saw Malarus was back in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #13.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
And speaking of Star Wars, if you like stories with very little dialog, then maybe Star Wars Droids Unplugged #1 will be for you. The comic drives on the concept of following three Droids and their adventures; R2D2, BB-8 and the Probe Droids. So with that synopsis, we assume there won’t be much story dialog getting driven here. Safe to assume this, no? They’re Droids! On the contrary though, back in 1986, Marvel went this route with Star Wars: Droids #1 from their Star Comics imprint. However, lots of dialog in this eight-part series. C3PO led the way with his talkative self, hence lots of dialog. He never shuts up! One of the true highlights of the first five issues has to be the legendary John Romita Sr. penciling all five covers and did the interior for the first four issues. That in itself is a reason to have this series in your collection.
The amazing writing skills of Greg Pak continues as his mash-up will come to life sooner or later; Hulk/Wolverine….or whatever they call ‘it’. Check out Totally Awesome Hulk #20 for part two of Weapons of Mutant Destruction. We really cannot wait for the title ‘Totally Awesome..’ to go away. It’s so silly and juvenile. It’ll happen, just need Marvel to realize how silly it really is and that will happen eventually. We guarantee it.

Spawn fans get a double dose of their favorite demon torn hero this Wednesday. Spawn #1 Encore Edition features lots of goodies from the original Spawn #1 issue 25 years ago. It’ll have art boards, McFarlane commentary and Image promises some surprises as well. Todd McFarlane’s cover is a direct homage to Joe Quesada’s Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). We love it. Also, Spawn #275 sees the return of Sam and Twitch. They first appeared in Spawn #1.

Valiant Entertainment is about to release their latest comic to rave reviews. The comic is Secret Weapon #1 and it will sell out, thus leading to a second print by next week. The stories leading player is Livewire. She was first introduced into the Valiant Universe in 1993’s Harbinger #14. Livewire then was reintroduced into the NEW Valiant Universe in 2012’s Harbinger #3. We’ve said this before (lots of times before….lots), if you really want to READ a comic book and get 100% viable substance from a well told story(s), Valiant Entertainment is the way to go. We cannot stress this enough. Secret Weapon #1 is going to get comic fans talking, best be on it so you’re in the know and not the what.
Look for another sell out/hit from Black Mask Comics. Beautiful Canvas #1, written by Ryan Lindsay and art by Sami Kivela.
Two new comics to check out from Scout Comics this week. Tinkers of the Wasteland #1, writer/art by Raul Trevino. Scout Comics releases a second issue never released before with a hit number one comic, together. Super cool to read Necromantical Ultimate Collection 1 with that second issue this Wednesday.

Alterna Comics continue their torrid pace within the industry with the reintroduction of the ‘old comic print’ comics. This week they continue that onslaught with Scrimshaw #1. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this new (old) comic format, we suggest you do. It’s nostalgic to the older crowd and the newer crowds get to see how cool it was to read a comic book the ‘old’ way. The material inside the pages of all the Alterna Comics releases within this new format has been on point too, so you’ll be purchasing a good story/art as well. What else does a comic fan need? Scrimshaw #1; written by Eric Borden and art by Dave Mims.

This week InvestComics will spotlight Todd McFarlane. As always, there will be many comics that are not included here, but that’s okay. We’re here to have fun.

Todd Mcfarlane was and still is a very big deal in the comic book industry. He commands your attention. He’s an entrepreneur with a toy line that rivals any action figure company out there today. Also, his artwork style rivals anyone in the industry. Todd’s artwork is a unique brand. Not everyone is a fan of it, but the voice of a few never outweighs the voice of many. He brings the angles to life and a certain realism that brings many to instantly relate to it. His Spidey bends in ways that are probably anatomically impossible for any human being to do, but we believe Spider-Man can really bend like this and it almost makes sense. Todd McFarlane’s Spidey became the main staple for many artist to emulate after. If you’re a Spider-Man artist, you want to make sure you’re up to par with Todd. Then there is Spawn. Spawn #1 sold over a million and a half copies and to this day remains one of the highest selling comic books of all time. Todd has gone on to do so much for the industry, but Spawn is his baby. This man is the real deal. Always has been, always will be.

Let’s check out some of his key books. As always on InvestComics, click the red links or comic covers to buy/bid on Ebay as you read. It’ll even open in a separate window so that you won’t lose your place!

So in no particular order, let’s go!

Todd’s first professional work was at Marvel Comics. Coyote #11 (1985). He was the penciler in a backup story. His first DC work was in Infinity Inc. #14 (1985). Todd collaborated on the cover and penciled the issue.

Coyote #13 (1985) – First Marvel cover. (collaboration)

Infinity Inc. #26 (1986) – First solo comic cover.

Incredible Hulk #330 (1987) – First solo Marvel comic cover. Todd went on to do many Hulk issues. He was a fantastic Hulk artist.

Crusade of Comics Presents: Spawn #1 (1992) – The first time Spawn ever saw print. This very cool free mini-comic insert is the first true appearance of Spawn. The insert predates Spawn #1. A very nice collectors item for any comic enthusiast. Not many of these on Ebay right now. It was included in the ‘Lotus’ VHS tape. What is VHS? Google it.

The Amazing Spider-Man #298 (1988) – This was the game changer. Todd’s Spidey shooting those webs on the cover that became standard after he defined them and Spidey’s physical attributes contributed to the new age for Spider-Man. The Spider-Man character has two defining artist in his storied history, Steve Ditko and Todd McFarlane. There have been fabulous artist throughout the entire runs, but no two artist have defined the character the way they have.

The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (1988) – After redefining Spider-Man two issues prior, Todd blows the doors off with this comic. The first appearance of Venom and that cover. This cover, (as many of Todd’s covers) has been paid homage to so many times over the years, it’s ridiculous. Todd has officially arrived.

Detective Comics #576 (1987) – A year prior to his Spidey, Todd killed it with his Batman. He went on to do other Batman comics thereafter.

Spawn #1 (1992) – One of the biggest selling comics of all time. Anyone who is a comic book collector owns this comic book. Even if they didn’t buy it, its somehow made its way into one of your comic book boxes. For real, check you’ll find one. Still Todd’s baby though.

Spawn-Batman #1 (1994) – With Spawn exploding at the seams in popularity, what better way to capitalize than to get Batman AND Frank Miller involved? This was a huge book upon it’s release and never lived up to its hype. Still a fun team-up, creative wise and character wise, a great book to own. Wait, want more of a reason to buy this comic? How about that this is Greg Capullo’s very first Batman work! Miller, McFarlane and Capullo……..I’ll take one thank you.

Superman Special #1 (1992) – Todd’s first Superman work. A pinup. Also Todd’s last DC original work.

Daredevil #241 (1987) – Todd’s first and only(?) Dardevil work. This was a fill in job. He penciled the entire issue. Mike Zeck/Klaus Janson cover.

Spitfire and the Troubleshooters #4 (1987) – This is another unusual fill in issue, penciling the entire issue.

Flaming Carrot Comics #27 (1991) – How about McFarlane drawing up some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Yep, right here! He went on to do a pinup in 1992’s TMNT #50, but this is his first Turtle book.

G.I. Joe #60 (1987) – Todd filled in for a G.I. Joe comic. Looking at this now, it seems so unlike Todd to pencil a Joe book right? Todd was supposed to do two issues, but issue number 61 was never to be. Actually, it was never to be printed. Marvel nixed the McFarlane issue for whatever reason, it wasn’t until some eight years later that issue would ever see print……

G.I. Joe Special #1 (1995) – Here is Todd’s “G.I. Joe #61”. It’s labeled as a special number one issue, with Todd McFarlane’s name attached to maximize monetary value for Marvel. Smart move. This comic also happens to be Todd’s last original work for Marvel ever printed. And boy does that cover look strikingly similar to someone, just can’t quite place it.

What The?! #3 (1988) – McFarlane has done quite a few backup stories in his time. Here is one that he did in this odd book called “Bat-Man”. Awesome parody stuff in a Marvel book here.

Mazing Man Special #3 (1988) – More unusual McFarlane stuff here. Here he does a Mazing Man backup.

The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #10 (1990) – During his Amazing Spider-Man run, this Spidey backup story is often forgotten.

Marvel Comics Presents #32 (1989) – With the Black Panther movie on the horizon, how about the first and only work Todd has ever done on the Black Panther? Todd does an awesome wraparound here. Black Panther is on the back cover.

Guardians of the Galaxy #5 (1990) – A Guardians of the Galaxy cover by the man here.

Quasar #14 (1990) – A fantastic cosmic cover from Todd. If Quasar ever comes into the fold with the Marvel cosmic universe they are creating for the movies, this would be a nice book no? Yes of course it would be.

Sandman #50 (1993) – Todd does a pinup in Sandman. Seems absolutely fitting for some reason doesn’t it?

Incredible Hulk #340 (1988) – The first Wolverine by Todd destined to become a classic cover. And it has.

Marvel Age #90 (1990) – Here is an original Todd McFarlane Spider-Man cover that might be rarer than most Spidey covers he’s done.

Spider-Man #16 (1991) – How about this spectacular sideways classic cover? This would be the end of Todd’s run with Spider-Man. Good way to go out.

Wizard Magazine #1 (1991) – Ah, the real speculation boom started here. As InvestComics has said for many years, thanks to Wizard magazine for the thought process of having InvestComics be born. We’ll take it from here Wizard, thanks. The classic Wizard Spider-Man cover!

The Crow #1 (1999) – A collaboration cover with Brian Haberlin here. The Crow is making its way back to the big screen.

Gene Simmons House of Horrors #1 (2007) – Gene Simmons from Kiss writes the intro for this comic and Todd teams up with Greg Capullo for the cover art. An usual IDW collaboration for the two here.

The Walking Dead #100 (2012) – McFarlane did a cover for the Walking Dead back in 2012. It was a 100th issue celebration cover in which many artist contributed their own cover. This was Todd’s cover, a rather morbid one and just right!
