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).
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
‘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

Buy/Bid – Toyetica #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 Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 9/3/14

[scrollGallery id=369]

There are foregone conclusions in life. The one that we all try hardest to elude is death. No matter how hard we try, we all will eventually meet our ultimate demise. No way around this one folks. It’s going to happen. However, the death card- foregone conclusion does not hold water within the comic book world. Wolverine will start the ultimate conclusion to his life beginning this week in Death of Wolverine (2014) #1. The death will stir the pot a bit, but will simply not hold for the long hall. Wolverine equals money and Disney isn’t about to give that up. So what to do as a fan? Well for one; enjoy the story put forth before you. It’s probably going to be a great one! As a speculator, well there are literally about 13 variants (at last count) that stand before you. If you’re a savvy investor and stay on top of the InvestComics Hot Picks each week, you’ll know what to do exactly. If you’re a first timer here, all I can say is choose wisely. There are simply too many variants to cover, but I can tell you one thing. It will be short lived, so you better turn over the comics quick. There is one sold out variant and that one goes to the sketch Deadpool variant. That variant alone will cost you around $350. That’s a bit much. Money better spent on a nice Bronze Age first appearance someplace. It’s your money though. If you buy that $350 book, you better have a good plan to get rid of it.

DC Comics wants to out duel Marvel this week so they go back to the well with their 3D covers. There is absolutely no redeeming value to these amazingly awesome 3D comics as far as monetary value goes. It’s a passing fad and will be as big as the Bombshell covers were, or the selfie covers. Yes you get the idea. Take a pass on these if you’re thinking of a spec market spike. There will however probably be ONE or TWO that will break through to cause an aftermarket bump. A short lived gimmick will bring a few extra bucks to your pocket, so the same applies here as did the Death of Wolverine. Choose wisely. Here is a quick checklist with images of which 3D covers are headed your way.

[scrollGallery id=370]

Trinity Of Sin Phantom Stranger Futures End (2014) #1

Swamp Thing Futures End (2014) #1

Action Comics Futures End (2014) #1

Green Arrow Futures End (2014) #1

Grayson Futures End (2014) #1

Earth 2 Futures End (2014) #1

Detective Comics Futures End (2014) #1

Batwing Futures End (2014) #1

Aquaman Futures End (2014) #1

Green Lantern Futures End (2014) #1

Check out the zany/fun and Sold Out variant comic God Hates Astronauts (2014 Image) #1 this Wednesday. No more left at Diamond so you better get a copy if you think it’s a keeper. Another sold out comic hitting the shelf this week is Silent Hill Downpour Annes Story (2014) #1. Don’t look for too much on the spec side with this comic though.

Since the inception of InvestComics back in 2005 I have recommended Moon Knight countless times, everything from Werewolf by Night, Marvel Spotlight, to the Stephen Platt run and many more. All of those comics have showed some decent progress over time. I will continue to inform anyone that reads this column each week that you need to get your Moon Knight Comics in order. He will eventually come to fruition and hit the big screen. When it is announced one day, these books will explode beyond a price range that makes sense to buy for the savvy speculator. So with that, in this week’s Moon Knight (2014 5th Series) #7 fans are introduced to a new villain.

Disney based comic Figment has been selling very well. Figment (2014) #4 will reveal the origin of Dreamfinder and Figment.

Alice Cooper (2014 Dynamite) #1 will start a new ongoing series written by the amazing Joe Harris. Alice Cooper is no stranger to comics. Check out his first appearance in the Marvel title Marvel Premiere #50 (1979). Mr. Cooper had an actual hand in writing that book too. Awesome Terry Austin cover as well!

Dark Horse Comics puts together two unlikely characters; Grendel and the Shadow in Grendel vs Shadow (2014) #1. Although the Shadow is a cool teammate, Grendel is total badas*. Grendel’s first appearance was in Primer #2 (1983). A once very hot commodity way back in the day still shows signs of life on Ebay. A recent 9.6 CGC graded sold for $250. Primer #2 consistently sells on Ebay, which is a great sign. Why Grendel isn’t on the big screen yet is puzzling. If you can get your hands on one of these, do yourself a favor and do so. It’s a winner and an investment all the way.

Number One (2014 Aazurn) #1 will be a great read. Look for this one shot to sell out. A disturbing new Vertigo title will be of interest to check out; Names (2014 DC/Vertigo) #1. Ex Con (2014 Dynamite) #1, Cloaks (2014 Boom) #1, and Death Defying Dr Mirage (2014 Valiant) #1 will be worth a look as well.

Want off the wall, funny, wacky this week? Look no further than Hawkeye vs Deadpool (2014) #0. This will be a must read.

Be sure to visit the InvestComics Instagram page. A lot of cool comics up for sale!

See you next week. Actually not! InvestComics will be at the Baltimore Comic Con!! Look for A LOT of POST from the show on the InvestComics Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Google Plus and Tumblr pages!! We’ll bring Baltimore Comic Con to you!

See you next week from Baltimore! Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.
