Alpha Flight #1

Click to Buy Now

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).

IC 100 Club Pick: Alpha Flight #1 (1983) 9.6. This is the classic John Bryne Alpha Flight #1 from 1983. It features the first appearance of Puck and Marrina, as well as the origin of Alpha Flight. It has a buy it now price of only $46.75. Not a bad price at all for a 9.6. 

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!

Deathstroke #1 volume four begins this Wednesday. Look for Deathstroke fans to flock to this series as writer Christopher Priest will bring in new readers as well.
John Constantine will return this week; Hellblazer #1. Writer Simon Oliver and artist Moritat bring the new story.
Jaime Reyes, A.K.A. Blue Beetle will get his own series starting this Wednesday. Jaime’s first appearances as himself and as BB are very easy finds and extremely easy on the wallet too. Infinite Crisis #3 (2006) is the first appearance of Jaime Reyes. It takes Reyes two issues to get his gear together and in Infinite Crisis #5 (2006) he first appears as Blue Beetle. The creative team of Blue Beetle Rebirth #1 consist of legend Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (art).
A disturbingly awesome Steve Dillon cover on Sixpack And Dogwelder Hard-Traveling Heroz #1 peeks our interest on what the inside may bring. Writer Garth Ennis and artist John McCrea return to their Section Eight creation. Garth and John first created Six-Pack back in 1996 – Hitman #9. Dogwelder(2) first appeared in Convergence Harley Quinn #2 (2015).

DC warns readers to prepare themselves for the last page in Detective Comics #939. Check it out and no reading at the new release comics wall! Get out da way!
The H.I.V.E. Queen plans on getting under the Teen Titans’ nerves in Teen Titans #23. In a long line of new 52 characters and new female comic characters, H.I.V.E. Queen is kinda neat. Check out her first appearance in Superman #21 (2013). We’re not too sure if that issue is a cameo or not, so be sure to check out Superman #22 (2013) as well. The Superman #22 Kenneth Rocafort cover rocks too!

It’s always a good thing to be alerted that Spider-Man will fight Venom. So here’s your alert. Venom Space Knight #11; Spidey vs. Venom. Has Spidey fought the “Space Knight” Venom though? Is this a first?
Deadpool #17 features the villain Madcap. The Deadpool comics have a knack of reviving comic characters from the past no one either cared too much for or forgot about altogether. So with that said, Madcap’s first appearance was in Captain America #307 (1985).

InvestComics informed our readers about Scout Comics’ Once Our Land #1 a few weeks ago and it sold out right after our article was released. An immediate aftermarket sensation and Once Our Land #2 will be no exception. Watch as this issue goes into immediate demand as well this week.
From Chapter House Publishing this week comes Northguard #1. Coming from the pages of their other Canadian hero Captain Canuck. To find Northguard’s very first appearance though, you’d have to go all the way back to 1984’s New Triumph Northguard #1 from Matrix Graphic Series. There’s a few available on Ebay.

Comic book writer extraordinaire; Greg Pak, turns up a new western style comic; Kingsway West #1. Get this comic from Dark Horse Publishing. Art by Mirko Colak.

Creator Spotlight – Frank Miller

daredevil-184-miller

New to InvestComics? Please read the Disclaimer here before proceeding…

One of the most prolific comic creators of our time is Frank Miller. He single-handedly made two comic characters into iconic status. Several of his creator owned projects have either seen film/television time or will in the future. Frank Miller’s art is extremely distinctive as well. Everything from the overbearing board shoulders of Batman to the loneliness feel of Daredevil’s pain, to the violence of 300. His writing replicates his artistry. Usually very bold and forthcoming. A distinctive comic creator in every facet. A true legend and Icon in the industry.

Here are just a few of his key books in his vast career. It took a very long time to compile this list and we hope you enjoy every bit of it as we did putting it together.

Click on the RED links or comic covers to Buy/Bid. A new window will open, you will not lose your place.

Twilight Zone #84 (1978) The first professional work from Frank Miller.

Weird War Tales #64 (1978) First DC Comics work.

John Carter Warlord of Mars #18 (1978) First Marvel Comics work with writer Chris Claremont. John Byrne cover.

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man #27 (1979) First Daredevil pencils. Miller will go on to basically own the Daredevil character. Most of anything you will ever see on film or on television on Daredevil is based from Miller’s interpretation of the character.

Daredevil #158 (1979) Miller’s first time on the Daredevil title will prove to be a major turning point in this characters life. The character is forever marked with the Miller touch.

Marvel Premiere #49 (1979) Miller/Janson cover. Falcon graces the cover and this is also Falcon’s first solo comic ever.

Daredevil #170 (1981) Writer/artist Frank Miller brings Kingpin into the life of Matt Murdock, making Kingpin one of Daredevil’s greatest adversaries of all time. Besides Bullseye of course.

Daredevil #176 (181) First appearance of Stick.

Daredevil #177 (1981) Miller writes Daredevil’s origin. Retold.

Daredevil #178 (1982) First team-up with Power Man and Iron Fist. Will this equate to box office money because of the possibility of a Netflix team-up? Maybe. Still a great book to have regardless.

Marvel Team-Up Annual #4 (1981) Miller writes a story that includes Moon Knight. He also does the cover art with Rubinstein that includes Moon Knight.

Daredevil #181 (1982) The death of Elektra. Also the first Punisher appearance in the series. Miller creates another adversary for the ages here for the Daredevil character, but it’s a vigilante (hero) this time. As with the Power Man/Iron Fist team up, will Netflix heat things up here with the Punisher coming on board? Again maybe, but be forewarned, this comic is way over-printed and very easy to find.

Daredevil #182 (1982) A classic cover.

Batman The Dark Knight Returns (1986) Here is another turning point for a character because of Frank Miller. This comic changed the course of history for Batman as we know it. The crazy thing about this game changer of a story was that he was writing Daredevil at the same time and killing that too! Two issues into his return to the Daredevil title came this mastery opus.

All Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder (2005) This series was without its controversy. Issue number ten caused a stir (recalled) and Miller’s writing for this series was very edgy to say the least. Jim Lee art, Scott Williams inks, and Miller script. Series went up to ten issues. Miller also did a variant cover for most of the series.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 6/18/14

Important note here first:

ALL InvestComics material within the weekly Hot Picks is 100% authentic and original. If you see anything mentioned on the internet or on social media that is written here, it came from HERE. This article is from a pure speculation vantage point and is not researched, read about, and or borrowed from ANY website or social media outlet. Every thought, every recommendation, every prediction, every gain, every loss, everything is InvestComics. So when I inform you to buy up Namor comics a few months ago (In January – InvestComics Hot Picks #304), I had no idea that an article(s) would pop up regarding a possible Namor movie recently. Read the reasoning behind the speculation and you’ll understand that I am as authentic as they come. And then in the InvestComics #316 article it reads “…….Like Namor, yeah Namor. He’s going to be some sort of a factor. Be it now or in the not so distant future, but watch out for him. I’ve mentioned this before. This is a gut. Who knows…….?”  Namor was recommended a few more times after that and even before that too, so for those who ignored it, no biggie, you still have plenty of time before Marvel makes the official announcement whenever that may be (years).  You see, InvestComics is setting trends, breaking ground, making the “big guys”…….the “big” comic book websites take notice. Would they ever give credit where it’s due? No way. That would be too noble and unfortunately not everyone is as honest as I am. The aforementioned character is only a recent example of a plethora of characters I have speculated on and many, many of them have come to fruition, thus making some serious profits for speculators that have followed the website since its inception in 2005. More often than not these days there is another website or person taking credit from this article. Give kudos, give references, give the credit where it is due.

InvestComics is bucking the trend, setting the trend, altering the market if you will.  Even the latest Facebook group we are generating buzz – Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society) – right HERE. Speaking of buzz, we are on BuzzFeed, Yahoo, GPAnalysis (On site rss feed/Membership email blast), MyComicShop (weekly email blast), ComicWow, and countless others.

So what is the moral of this rant? Know that the source material you read week in and week out from THIS weekly article is coming from an ORIGINAL place; InvestComics. We truly are leading the way. And thanks to YOU.

Have you heard that Daredevil will be coming to a television screen near you soon? That’s if you’re buying into Netflix of course. And of course you knew about Daredevil, but what about his rouge gallery? He has a few you should definitely have those in your collection by now. Typhoid Mary is still affordable and that should without a doubt be picked up. She first appeared in Daredevil #254 (1988). On the more expensive side you can and should always buy Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967) whenever you have a chance. Never pass up the Kingpin’s first appearance. Especially since Marvel/Netflix just announced the person for that role on the television show. No matter really, Amazing Spidey #50 is a winner with or without that show coming on.  So then you have Daredevil (2014 4th Series) #4 coming out this week. This issue will focus on the all new villain The Owl. This villain will probably and most likely appear on the Netflix show as well. Check out the Owl’s first appearance in Daredevil #3 (1964). The new Daredevil issue this Wednesday will also bring Foggy Nelson into the equation. Will Foggy be a part of the new show too? Probably, but you’ll have to fork down some serious dough to get his first appearance because it just so happens to be the first appearance of Matt Murdock himself in Daredevil #1 (1964). Like in the case of the Amazing Spider-Man #50 issue though, Daredevil #1 will always be in the buy market.

Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #32 will bring Nocturna front and center in the new 52 universe. And just in case you’re wondering; Nocturna’s first appearance is in Detective Comics #529 (1983).

There is one knockout punch coming from Image Comics this week that you need to get and have fun with in the aftermarket; Wicked and Divine (2014) #1. The comic is completely sold out across the board. Regular and variants are sold out. So get em’ while they’re hot. MPH (2014 Image) #2 variants are gone. Look for second prints on this comic to follow soon.

1870697 1867874IDW will be in the black this new comic book day. Star Trek City on the Edge of Forever (2014) #1 is sold out and the Winterworld (2014 IDW) #1 variants are gone. Soon too will be the regular cover.  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star in an all new series; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtles In Time (2014) #1. Sales look strong on this comic right now.

Dynamite Entertainment are showing some very strong sales with Doodle Jump (2014) #1. Doodle will most likely be sold out soon after its release.

Marvel promises to name a character from its’ 48 year history in Silver Surfer (2014 5th Series) #3. What does this mean exactly? Your guess is as good as mine, I have no idea.

Other debut comics to check out this week; Thomas Alsop (2014) #1, Regular Show (2013 Kaboom) Annual #1, Fathom (2013 Aspen 5th Series) Annual #1, and Wonderland Age of Darkness (2014) #1.

 

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

Spider_VerseWith the recent announcement of the new Spider-Man Event called “Spider-Verse” it got us thinking; how long will it take us to compile a list together for our fans. Well it took a little while, but it was well worth it. In case you’re out of the loop a little bit, Spider-Verse will bring together every single different form of the Spider-Man character ever in a Spidey event series. Sounds like fun!

For fans alike, this should be an absolute thrill ride. The readers will be in eye candy heaven. So what does this mean exactly for the speculator? Well they too will have a joy ride ahead of them. The math is not hard on this one at all. Here is how it will probably go down. Spider-Verse will release and there will be a mad frenzy for many of the Spidey characters. Be it in a suit/Spidey-Armour/power or anything for that matter. Marvel will get wind of the public outcry for say…..the Iron Spider-Man (one of our personal favorites) and they will respond. Bottom line folks, expect some branching out of the Spider-Man Universe for years to come. Be on top of some of the ridiculous ones and the stellar ones before you’re caught without a copy of that NEW popular Spidey character with their own series.

Iron_Spider_ManNow InvestComics fans can search out just about every single different Spider-Man (and female) that pretty much exist right here……on one page.

As we mentioned earlier, one of our favorite Spidey creations has to be the Iron Spider-Man. The late Michael Turner still has one of our favorite modern day comic covers of all time. Civil War #3 (2006) Variant is an absolute beauty (pictured right).

So in no particular order, welcome to the InvestComics: Spider-Verse/Spider-Man Checklist! The list compiles not only the different variations of Spider-Man, but it also includes some of the Spidey villains that have emulated him over the years as well.

(Of course there will be some comics left off or some errors made here. Please speak up if you think you got a good one that was inadvertently left off or if there is a mistake. Also, please keep in mind that some of these characters will never see the light of day in the Spider-Verse event, but having fun here is more important.)

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

Allow me to reminisce a bit; I need to inform everyone on something very spectacular and drive home a point, if there is one…….

There comes a certain time within a startup business that one can be very proud of their personal achievements. Although there have been several for InvestComics (my fourth child), the ones that stick out are the ones I will cherish and tell myself “Hey you CAN truly make this happen”. Meeting and interviewing the mecca of all comic book legends; Stan Lee, twice! That’s one. Having Mr. Lee utter the words of “InvestComics” on video, forever captured, encapsulated in time, that’s two. Meeting and interviewing my late father’s artist hero (which he never met); Bill Sienkiewicz, that’s three. Starting the InvestComics Publishing Company, that’s number four. Watching the traffic numbers climb to a number you’ve envisioned, and then exceeding it each and every year, that’s five. If I continue I will run out of Microsoft paper, but you get the idea here.

Yesterday one of those pinnacle moments happened again. InvestComics was accepted to write articles for Yahoo!. It’s one of those moments like the aforementioned you pinch yourself and say “wow” this is kinda awesome. I will post on Facebook and the InvestComics website the links to check out. They will be Exclusive articles on Yahoo! From InvestComics. These articles will ONLY appear on Yahoo! and no place else. So be sure to click on the links when they are provided so you can bask in the glory with me. Also, I ask to please share them. The articles are very simple now, but will be enhanced; as did everything else with InvestComics when first started. Here are two links to the very first articles on Yahoo!. InvestComics Top 10 – New Comic Releases and Back Issues for 10/30/13 and InvestComics Top Ten – New Comic Releases and Back Issues for 11/6/13. As stated, these articles will be more in-depth with the next releases. Baby steps…

Thanks to you……the fans…. for making this happen. Thank you for all of your support, none of this is possible without you.

Christmas is officially 24 days away. The InvestComics/Ratchet City Comics giveaway is still on, but we need to get to 3000 LIKES on Facebook in order to award the prize! The winner will receive a CGC Signature Series graded 9.8 Star Wars #1 (2013) Dark Horse comic signed by Brian Wood! Click HERE and SHARE the InvestComics Facebook page everywhere! Be sure to let us know so that you can be entered to win!! Let’s get to 3000!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Comic Releases 12/4/13

Just like last week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, not much in the back issue department to check out, but plenty of new issues to check out.

[scrollGallery id=322]

We start the week off with some first appearances that you may want to check out. Avengers (2012 5th Series) Annual #2013 will introduce Zamira. It’s always nice to make sure as a collector to pick up a first appearance in an Avengers book. Knowing full well that annuals don’t usually account to much, but the way things are rolling these days, you never know. So basically, I don’t care that it’s in an annual. Especially that it’s in an Avengers title. The speculator needs to get this comic. The Arrow series on CW is doing quite well for itself these days. The Green Arrow comic is faring okay though. With the release of Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #26 this week, look for the introduction of some new villains in these pages. In the bizarre first appearance world of comics this week we have Longshot Saves The Marvel Universe (2013) #3. Check out Hulkvengers, Cosmic Carnage, Wolverine King of Vampires among others. Silly, yet once again you never know!

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #6 has our heroes dealing with Mongul. This big ol’ Thanos/Darkseid wannabe first appeared in DC Comics Presents #27 (1980). Check out that Jim Starlin Cover too! Oh of course Jim Starlin is involved with this cosmic character, hello?!

Having a name like Man-Bat is the equivalent of having the name She-Bat, right?? Well anyways, this week in Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #26, John Layman brings the She-Bat to the forefront. Here’s a quick trivia question, you must know the answer in 4 seconds flat. Ready? Where is the first appearance of She-Bat…..1,2,3,4 BZZZZ! Time’s up! The first appearance is in Detective Comics #407 (1971) by legend Neal Adams. Now that’s at least a reason to own the book, right?!

If you’re a fan of any Spidey comic these days you will realize that anything is possible with the way a storyline can twist and turn. There may be a similar path this week with Superior Spider-Man (2012) #23. Marvel promises to have the most “cringe-worthy moment is Spider-Man history” happen in this comic. What is worth a statement like that? Well you’ll have to buy the comic to find out. “….In history”, that’s very mighty of them to say isn’t it? Superior Spider-Man #23 is a definite pick-up this week.

Amazing X-Men (2013) #2 features a fan fav Dale Keown variant that’s sold out at Diamond. Possibly a nice CGC Signature Series opportunity here. It’s a $40 variant, so score a 9.8 or higher.                

Inhumanity (2013) #1 variant by Nick Bradshaw is sold out. Inhumans will be a hot commodity for a bit, so be on top of them. Check out last week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #296 for more on the Inhumans.

The popular on-line video game Hawken will get its own comic book this week from Archaia Studios Press; Hawken Melee (2013) #1. It’s almost sold out at the distributor, so be sure to check in on it.

Want to follow the story of three dogs surviving the extinction of the human race in Rover Red Charlie (2013) #1? Sounds a bit over the top right? With proven talent like writer Garth Ennis on this book, one cannot help but see what this is all about.

The latest installment of the Terminator hits this week; Terminator Salvation Final Battle (2013) #1 and the Pete Woods Variant is sold out.

Another zombie book finds its way to the new release shelf this week; Deadworld Restoration (2013) #1. The zombie genre is going to die soon (no pun intended) with too many storylines focusing on dead people that walk around. See last week’s Hot Picks #296 for more on the zombie genre.

What’s not dead on arrival is the new red hot Noir comic from Dynamite Entertainment. Noir (2013 Dynamite) #2 is sold out at the distributor. Look for second prints to follow shortly.

A new creative team will be taking over on Valiant’s Shadowman (2012 4th Series) #13. Be sure to check that out.

There is a “thing” Dynamite Entertainment is doing that is kind of perplexing (not really, they’re making extra cash with these “rare comics”), but maybe cool for the collector/speculator? It’s a question because there is no reasoning behind why they continue to do this to certain comics (other than the cashflow) and they are extremely limited, but we’ll point out a few of them this week. Red Sonja Unchained #4 Cover D High-End Mel Rubi Blood Red Ultra-Limited Cover. There are only 25 of these in existence. The “number” in existence is the running theme here, so check out what applies here for these comics; Dejah Thoris And The Green Men Of Mars #5 Cover G High-End Jay Anacleto Risque Color Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), Lords Of Mars #5 Cover D High-End Mel Rubi Risque Red Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), Black Bat (2013 Dynamite) #7 Cover D High-End Ardian Syaf Black & White Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), and Shadow Green Hornet Dark Nights #2 Cover E High-End Alex Ross Sketch Art Ultra-Limited Cover (25 Copies). I do suppose that if you want to spend a $100 on any of these comics you can, but how exactly do you make your money back on these “investments”? (If you want to call it an investment). Graded CGC Signature Series? How would one sell something that isn’t really in much demand? Getting an Alex Ross sig series on the Shadow Green Hornet Dark Nights #2 is a good start.

Sticking with the Dynamite Comics here, be sure to check out Legends of Red Sonja (2013 Dynamite) #2 with the Frank Thorne exclusive cover. It’s a much cheaper route than the above mentioned. A $3.99 comic limited to comic subscribers at their local comic shops and an initial limited print run. All that for $3.99, not bad.

And finally, from Archie Comics Archie #650 Cover B Variant Fiona Staples World Tour Cover. This awesome variant comes from the red hot series artistry of Saga; Fiona Staples. A $3.99 easy, no brainer pick-up.

Invest wisely,

Jay Katz

Check out this week’s InvestComics Comics & Cinema article over on Project Fanboy for the complete Green Lantern Comic book check list on Monday 1-11-10! Sticking with the movie theme, looks like Thor will lay the hammer down on the Spider-Man movie, check it out right here. Thanks to SuperHeroHype for that nice nugget. InvestComics has 2 trailers running on the front page right now, one is the new Kick Ass trailer in HD and the other is an A-Team trailer. The Kick Ass movie is going to be awesome and I cannot wait for it!

InvestComics had 4 new articles go up in the last couple of days. You could click the links in here to go directly to the articles. Topher Seal’s Brokers Corner has some back issue treasures to check out. Chris Winters brings his
in-depth album reviews to Lil Wayne’s new one in the ChrisToPhenom column. The IndieCreator himself Bob Heske gives us part 2 of Stephen Downey’s Making of Demented.

Check out ALL of the IndieCreator articles right here if you’d like to learn about the business or need some sort of connection someplace to get started. The IndieCreator columns are extremely informative! Last but not least, InvestComics debuted a new column called 2 Comic Book Guys. The column is written by Jay and Friday. They share a unique perspective on the comic book world and will bring that to InvestComics. The first article is written by Jay with another article coming from Friday very shortly. These articles MAY seem offensive to some, so I do warn anyone that if you are easily offended, do not click on the link when it shows up on the front page of IC. These guys are raw, but are A LOT of fun!

…And now on to the very short list this week on Hot Picks! 

amspm41_1strhino_1966_500_romitasr.gifamspm617.gifIt looks like the Rhino is coming back in a big way. Judging by the Amazing Spider-Man #617 cover he looks pissed. Get the heck out of the way! One comic you should not be getting out of the way is Rhino’s first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #41 (1966). This beauty is brought to you by the living legend John Romita Sr. The delay in the new Spider-Man movie only means that maybe Rhino is one step to becoming a reality instead of whoever else might be the villain(s) in the movie. So for a very affordable $500, you could score on an early Spidey comic and have the first appearance of a character that seems to be pissed off an awful lot. Then again, if you had a huge horn sticking out in the middle of your head, you’d be angry too.

conanthecimmeriantheweightofthecrown_darickrobertson.gifsuperherosquad1.gifpunishermax3_1stmennonite.gifDarick Robertson of The Boys comes to Dark Horse comics this week to deliver a One Shot that will probably sell out quickly. Conan the Cimmerian The Weight of the Crown might be the longest winded title of the week, but don’t expect this comic to last too long on the shelf.
With Disney now leading Marvel by the hand, it’s no surprise that we will see more of the Super Hero Squad. A new number one issue comes out with a real hot cartoon series behind it. Look for this one to be gone quickly. Hero up!
PunisherMax #3 introduces a villain named Mennonite. Who or what is a Mennonite? Don’t know, but that name doesn’t sound promising. Stranger things have happened….

Check out these IC extras coming at you this week:
