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: Secret Wars #1 9.8 (2015). Here is a neat modern graded under a hundred bucks. This high grade modern has three signatures on it, two of which are creators of Deadpool. The sigs; Rob Liefeld, Fabian Nicieza and Johnathan Hickman. All that for $99? Not too shabby.

Regular readers of the weekly InvestComics Hot Picks know how we pinned the title Deadpool And The Mercs For Money down and predicted the outcome of all the players in the previous series getting their own solo comics. Well, not only is Now Foolkiller #1 coming out this week, but Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #5 features the newest team, lead by Domino, getting their act together from the previous issue. We discussed some of the first appearances of Domino’s new team HERE. The old team’s first appearance’s were discussed HERE.
Foolkiller; Greg Salinger, first appeared in Omega The Unknown #8 (1977). Cover by legend Gil Kane. The Now Foolkiller #1 will be accompanied by many variants. The Rob Liefeld B&W Deadpool variant will garner much attention in the aftermarket.

Marvel begins their newest Avengers title(s) this week; Now Avengers #1 (written by Mark Waid) and Now Occupy Avengers #1. Not crazy about the ‘Now’ in the title in front of the Avengers, but it’s still better than a ‘Totally Awesome Hulk’ title. So many variants to choose from, but it’s the inside of the Now Avengers #1 comic you may want to check out too. Someone dies and you have a chance to find out who first……by getting to your comic shop earlier than everyone else. The Alex Ross Now Avengers #1 variant is a beauty.

If you think Marvel will keep away Wolverine or Thor or countless other original characters away from the fray, you’d be sadly mistaken. Now Unworthy Thor #1 begins the comeback(s) of Marvel’s original elite. Writer Jason Aaron and artist Oliver Coipel on Thor’s (possible) return.

On the topic of covers, Michael Choi Champions #2 white cover is an eye catcher. Death of X #3 cover from Aaron Kuder is amazing. Elektra on the cover of Spider-Man 2099 #17; by Francesco Mattina.

InvestComics has been saying it for years, even before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon. A Moon Knight movie! Right?? It’s right there on the cover of Moon Knight #8. No? Okay, we’re reaching, but maybe Marvel planted a seed here for the fans? Wishful thinking, but in the mean time, stock up from our Moon Knight checklist.

Superman #10 will be the comic everyone is talking about this week. The kids of Supes and Bats meet up for the first time. Boy of Steel and Boy Wonder, along with their daddy’s will make for an interesting read. The regular Patrick Gleason & Mick Gray cover is not only fantastic, but it tells the readers what we may be in for. The variant Andrew Robinson cover is very reminiscent of a now iconic Jim Lee Batman cover back in 2003; Batman #612. Looks as though Andrew gives us another angle of the choke hold. We love this cover.

DC Comics Bombshells #19 marks the return of the Batgirls. This team first appeared together in DC Comics Bombshells #7.
Batman #10 continues the ‘I am suicide’ story line. The story that has Batman putting together his own Suicide Squad team. Part two here.
Writer Meredith Finch and artist Shane Davis bring us Catwoman Election Night #1.

The Savage She-Hulk #17 (1981) – First appearance of Man-Elephant. Yep. At least this character has about five appearances in their 35 year history. Disney needs to use this dude.

The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.

Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.

Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.

The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.

Marvel Graphic Novel #18 (1985) – John Byrne gets an entire book to draw and write on the She-Hulk. Not just any book, a Marvel graphic novel. That’s 72 oversized pages of awesome John Byrne She-Hulk.

Fantastic Four #293 (1986) – Jerry Ordway provides this great cover of the She-Hulk.

Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.

Marvel Comics Presents #18 (1989) – She-Hulk story written and drawn by John Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely! 

Sensational She-Hulk #2 (1989) – First appearance of Weezi Mason.

Marvel Age #76 (1989) – As a growing trend for quite a while, Marvel or John Byrne loved putting Jennifer in a bathing suit on his covers.

Sensational She-Hulk #39 (1992) – And another awesome cover from Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back.  A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.  

Sensational She-Hulk #41 (1992) – The first time creator John Byrne appears (as himself) in the She-Hulk series.

Marc Spector: Moon Knight #41 (1992) – The first time Jennifer appears in a Moon Knight comic.

Sensational She-Hulk #50 (1993) – The 50th anniversary issue. 48 pager. John Byrne loads the book up with guest appearances from a number of Marvel characters. This issue would be the last Byrne issue as Jennifer looks for a new creative team to take over her comic series. John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.

Sensational She-Hulk #52 (1993) – This issue features an Adam Hughes cover!

Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.

Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

X-Men #25

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: Uncanny X-Men #25 1966 (Graded 7.5). This comic is from the original X-Men series of the early 1960’s. The 25th issue from the original series graded at a nice 7.5 for only $95 and FREE shipping. A Jack Kirby cover and the introduction of El Tigre. A fantastic Silver Age graded comic at an affordable price. And FREE shipping. Good deal.

Gotta love that new Gwenpool #2 cover. DC Comics gives fans a parody character of Deadpool a few weeks back; Red Tool. Now Marvel has this cover of Gwenpool on the cover resembling a certain DC character that welds a big hammer most of the time. Sometimes a baseball bat or whatever she can really get her hands on, but preferably that really BIG hammer is usually her “go-to”. Make of the cover what you will, but that sure does look like that DC girl. One more thing, the Gwenpool #2 Reilly Brown incentive cover is sold out.

Marvel Comics introduces yet another character on one of their covers. Seems like a trend now each week doesn’t it? Boy they market so well, catering to the comic collector. Silk #8 will feature Silk The Worthy (Silk as Thor). May never amount to anything, but the thing is, they seem to nail awesome looking characters! Create the character, the demand may come, a follow up on making the character a part of the actual Marvel Universe and there you have it, an introduction on a comic cover.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates of the new Black Panther series will probably make readers realize that his particular take on this character is unlike anything they’ve ever read before. Black Panther #2 comes out on Wednesday and will prove this point even more so. The Midnight Angels make an appearance to stir things up a bit. The Midnight Angels first appeared way back in 2010’s Doomwar #5, a comic that features lots of guest spots including Deadpool. And Black Panther, of course. Marvel’s new Apocalypse variant covers are killing it too these past couple of weeks. The Apocalypse Black Panther #2 variant is proof of this.
….And Dale Keown’s Guardians Of The Galaxy #8 Apocalypse cover is ridiculously wonderful.

Web Warriors #7 features a character we told you about a while back. We wrote about the possible breakout of this character someday. Well, maybe the time has come now. Spider-Punk makes his way back into the pages of a Spidey related book. Spider-Punk first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #10 (2015). You already knew this because you follow InvestComics and realize we are the best thing since sliced bread. Maybe sliced comics. No, no, don’t slice your comics, not good.

Marvel will introduce Grant Ward into the Marvel Universe this week. See that happen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #5.
Staying on topic of introducing characters in the Marvel Universe, take a look at All New All Different Avengers #9. This issue will introduce the All new Wasp! The regular and variant Alex Ross covers kick as*.
Venom Space Knight #7 may introduce a new foe. Or it features more depth on a newer character. Check this one out to reaffirm.
Another week, and more Star Wars comics to read! Darth Vader #20 begins a new story arc and begins a backup story with Triple-Zero and Beetee.

There are many DC covers paying homage to their own series this Wednesday. With many issues hitting that proverbial 52nd issue, DC will regurgitate the covers from it’s premiere issue in its own series with issue number 52. It all seems so contrived at this point with the New 52 in so many ways. Homage to a number one issue from 51 issues ago? Really?? Okay.

Learn more about the new character Harley Sinn introduced in Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #1 in this week’s Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #2.
Check out a major status quo change in Selina’s life coming up in Catwoman #52.
Fans could possibly witness the death of Superman this week. Again. Who cares? It’s all in good fun storytelling. Check out Action Comics #52 as Superman from pre-New 52 meets up with the current Superman. Only one may survive.

Female Comic Characters – Checklist 1

With the influx of female characters making their way into the comic book medium these days, with lots of thanks to Disney (Marvel) making it so that the female character shows more of a “character side” as they have never before, we wanted to make sure to recognize some of the keys players. We completely understand that female characters have been around since the inception of comic books (no need for a history lesson, stop typing that email or Facebook post), but there is a movement happening in the past few years to the likes we have never really seen in case you haven’t realized it. Disney put a female lead in its new Star Wars movie, now the next Star Wars movie (Rouge One) will ALSO be a female lead. They know what they’re doing and their comics are following the same guidelines. So as is everyone else in the comic book industry. Much like what always happens with InvestComics and everyone following us or emulating. We’re flattered though. Like Disney.

Listed below are some new comics, some old comics and characters WE like. This will be the first installment of more Female character checklist to come. Of course we will in FACT not have some of your favorites here, but all in due time. Relax. Just breathe. Deep breaths. No emails, no Facebook post, Tweets, Instagram notes. Breathe……breathe.

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1 – All of the variants in the aftermarket are well above market value right now. Seems Black Mask comics have struck a nerve with comic book fans once again. 

Dark Souls #1 – Another indie book cracks the Top 5. This hot video game based comic is showing signs of a sell out.

Mighty Thor #6 – We think this might be the first official appearance of Viking Hulk. Read this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #420 article to inquire more details on this.

Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #3 – Check this comic out for a slew of villains appearing in it.

New Avengers #9 – A comic that appeared in a previous Hot Picks article (last month), but made in back into an InvestComics Hot Picks article THIS week and into the Top Five list this week as well. We can do this because we don’t have to answer to anyone. The first appearance of Avenger Five, American Kaiju, and Doctor Varghese.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!

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: Thor #149 8.5 (1968). This comic features the first origin of the Inhumans. A nice 8.5 grade can get bumped to a possible 9.0 if pressed. An amazing comic for only $80 with FREE shipping. With the Inhumans movie drawing closer in a couple of years, this comic will be an untouchable. Triple its value easily. Get this comic before someone else does.

The super cool Avenger Five will make an appearance in New Avengers #10. Avenger Five first appeared in the previous issue New Avengers #9. That issue also had the first appearances of American Kaiju and Doctor Varghese.
We’re not a 100% on this, but we’re not finding a true first appearance on the Viking Hulk character. So we’ll say that the Mighty Thor #6 will feature the first appearance of Viking Hulk. No? Maybe? If you’re not a fanboy, please help out our fellow InvestComics fans if you know of a Viking Hulk character NAMED in another comic other than the Mighty Thor #6 coming out this week. If he’s wearing a silly viking helmet in some comic and is still called Hulk, that doesn’t count.
Regular follower’s of InvestComics know how we feel about this title. We like the concept and the feel of it. Marvel must maintain the course here. Check out Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #3 with a slew of villains appearing in it.
Speaking of Deadpool, there’s a great cover swipe regarding the secret cover to Deadpool #10. The cover swipe is from Jim Steranko’s classic Nick Fury Agent of S.h.i.e.l.d. #1 (1968).
Cap and Black Widow team up to train a new team of Avengers. This happens in Captain America Road To War #1. The Francesco Mattina variant cover is nice.
Disney Kingdoms Haunted Mansion #1 saw some sellouts when it came out. This week, the follow up, Disney Kingdoms Haunted Mansion #2.

Nothing but a good story happening in the Superman American Alien comics. And we also admire the Ryan Sook cover; Superman American Alien #6.
Joseph Michael Linser’s variant; Harley’s Little Black Book #3 is sold out.
Aquaman will turn to the Scavenger for some answers this week in Aquaman #51. Have you seen the InvestComics Aquaman checklist yet? It came out back in August of 2015. If not go now for some key issues right HERE. In there you’ll find Aquaman #37 (1968), the first appearance of Scavenger. Get your Aquaman comics now before the aftermarket really escapes you.
Super League part 3 in Action Comics #51. Check out our previous Hot Picks (2 straight weeks) on why we are on the trail of this event going through the Superman books.

From a New York newspaper interview, Valiant Entertainment says it will have the first appearance of Vladimir Putin in Divinity II #1. We assume “as a villain” here right? Because Putin has appeared in other comics before. All Marvel Comics appearances at that. Either way, Divinity was a hit book for Valiant the first time around, it’ll be a hit book again. Last count, 7 variant covers. Trevor Hairsine sketch cover is sold out.

Black Mask Comics brings us 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1. Mostly every number one Black Mask Comic sells out. No difference here probably. Some of the variants are commanding bigger monies in the aftermarket already. 
The new Dark Horse comic, Dept H #1 will be written and drawn by Matt Kindt. The cover from Jeff Lemire almost depicts an X-Man on the cover doesn’t it?
An Image Comic to have fun read with this week; Chew Demon Chicken Poyo #1 from writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory.

Throughout the years InvestComics has explained that there is something within the speculative/collectors market that is just as important as the first appearance of a character. A characters second appearance is not only a fun get, but sometimes very affordable. Sometimes not, therein is the chance to make your decision as an investor to jump in or not. We cannot make that decision for you, nor would we. We will simply guide you and the rest is up to you.

….and we implore you, please read or know the disclaimer before reading on. Thank you.

Journey Into Mystery #84 (1962) – Here’s the second Thor appearance. Cover credits; Jack Kirby/Joe Sinnott. Stan Lee writes. Also the first appearance of Jane Foster.

Flash #147 (1964) – With Zoom (Reverse Flash) doing so well on the television series, it would be a nice get right here with his second appearance.

Amazing Spider-Man #38 (1966) – Mary Jane’s second appearance. It also happens to be the last Steve Ditko issue.

Strange Tales #127 (1964) – InvestComics informed readers many years ago about the first appearance of villain Dormammu before the Doctor Strange movie ever came to fruition. Here is the second appearance.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (1964) – Here’s another villain InvestComics touched upon as well, but still hasn’t come to light……yet. Check out Mysterio’s second appearance right here. This comic is also the first appearance of the Sinister Six.

New Mutants #88 (1990) – Cable will be hitting the big screen eventually. We all know his first appearance, here’s his second.

Strange Tales #111 (1963) – The Doctor Strange movie will be huge. Once again InvestComics gave readers a heads up way before the movie was ever spoken about, but now we’re letting you know that since the first appearance is out of reach a bit, why not go for a second appearance? Also the first appearance of Baron Mordo and Asbestos Man.

Daredevil #2 (1964) – This comic has TWO second appearances. First; the Daredevil Netflix series is hot hot hot. No telling where they will go with this character. Will there be a reboot movie with the current actor Charlie Cox? It would be a first within the comic book movie industry (modern) for a television superhero actor to make the leap. It seems fitting that Charlie Cox would make that leap to the big screen. Daredevil’s second appearance was in the second issue of his self titled book. A great book to own. This comic also holds the second appearance of Electro! A 4.5 graded on Ebay right now at $149 is a fantastic buy.

Aside from the obvious success of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has amassed quite the career thus far. This Creator Spotlight will not focus on the Walking Dead comics Robert has done because InvestComics has already covered most of them throughout the years. We’re going to focus on his body of work besides TWD, which is quite impressive to say the least. A young career, but yet so vast.

 

Battle Pope #1 (2000) Robert’s first published work. From Funk-O-Tron.

Battle Pope #2 (2000) Here is the first rare pencils from Kirkman. A pinup page.

Thief of Thieves #1 (2012) This series was a boiling book at one time. Never mind a hot one. It still commands some money in the aftermarket, but has since cooled down because of the lack of non-movement regarding a television show. Speculators however still anticipate something to happen.

Playboy Vol 59 #3 (2012) The Walking Dead; Michonne’s origin appeared in this magazine. And you Walking Dead fans thought you owned everything.

The new Dr. Strange movie will be hitting in July of 2016. That’s not too far off believe it or not. Dr. Strange will be all kinds of awesome when it hits. A new era of Marvel Studios magic will be spectacularly accepted by moviegoers. It’s going to be the first movie in which Marvel can display its CGI full tilt. Not saying they didn’t use CGI a lot in their other films, but we’re talking the mystics here! Yes Awesomeness will ensue, be prepared.

Dr. Strange will be a huge hit. Some of his key back issues have already exploded and we’re here to make sure you’re on point to join the frenzy.

Strange Tales #110 (1963) The first appearance of Stephen Strange (Doctor Strange). Written by Stan Lee and art by Steve Ditko. Buy this comic, own it. A Jack Kirby cover, but does not feature the Doctor on the cover. Also the first appearance of Wong, and Ancient One.

Strange Tales #115 (1963) Origin issue and first appearance of Eye of Agamotto. Also the second appearance of Sandman.

Fantastic Four #27 (1964) The first cover Dr. Strange appears on. Jack ‘King’ Kirby art and cover.

Strange Tales #126 (1964) InvestComics recommended this comic a few years ago; the first appearance of Dormammu. We were ahead of the curve (as we usually are) in the sense we were foreshadowing to buy this book if a Doctor Strange movie ever gets made. Dormammu will probably be the nemesis in the Strange film. Also the first appearance of Clea which is also a good speculative thought to appear in the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (1964) The first appearance with Spider-Man. Also with the Fantastic Four and a host of others. All art by Steve Ditko. First appearance of Sinister Six.

Comic Broker Report – September 2014

Everyone likes a quickie.  Enjoy!

Venom Lethal Protector 1 ( Gold, Newsstand, Black Cover Error )

First Appearance of Ann  Weying

imagesd

These days many people have been infected with Venom.  Marvel has actually done a pretty good job in this area.  Mania may be my favorite but Ann Weying is right behind her!

Her best cover by far!

Dark Horse Insider 6

2847857-__addme___dark_horse_insider_v9999__6___page_1

Sam Rami made a bit of a splash at this years SDCC by announcing a possible TV show for his Evil Dead property!  First appearance of Ash and the famous book bound in skin is in this hard to find preview series.

Earth x  0 ( First Female Thor )

thor earth x

Earth X 005-000

Despite being set in a different time and alternate Universe this is the first appearance of a female Thor.  If you can find a depiction of a woman wielding the power of Thor prior to this book please let me know!  So why is a female Thor important?  Well it looks like Marvel is changing some things including the sex of one one of its most popular heroes.  Bad idea?  Time will tell but until then there is sure to be a lot op speculation on who will hold the hammer.

Tales of Suspense 59 ( First appearance of Jarvis )

15945_20051209163234_large

The upcoming Agent  Carter show will feature a familiar face, the original Jarvis.  With all the hype J.A.R.V.I.S. is getting surrounding Avengers 2 it sure is nice to hear that one of the Avengers most beloved characters will be showing up on the small screen.

Sensation Comics 1: First Wildcat

838_20060601122106_large

Wildcat may be coming to season 3 of Arrow but your chances of finding his first is pretty much zero.  The cover is pretty cool though so I decided to post it for you all!  That’s if for this month!

Oh and I really want this SDCC treat!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 2/12/14

Must listen to Comic Book podcast – NerdFu. These guys cover it all! Click on the logo above or the name to jump right on over to the coolest podcast on the planet. NerdFu. 

[scrollGallery id=334]

Two number one issues coming out this week from Marvel are going to prove worthy of success, but die an unfortunate quick death. Maybe not so much X-Force (2014 4th Series) #1 because of the movie hype surrounding it, but She-Hulk (2014 3rd Series) #1 will be hot for a little bit and turn as cold as ice in an instant. Although X-Factor will escape the clutches of cancelation for a little while longer than She-Hulk will, these two series are going to see no action in the speculative market for the long haul. I cannot urge you enough to stay away from the variants on these comics. If you think for some strange reason that plucking down $60 for either of these top variants will fetch you a return, you’re sadly mistaken. The only savior for the She-Hulk would be a major movie announcement (which doesn’t seem likely in the foreseeable future), otherwise stay away. The smart move here for either the X-Factor or She-Hulk interest is to go after the key book(s). She-Hulk #1 from 1980 is the characters first appearance. This would be the comic to spend a couple of bucks on. As for X-Factor, well you have the X-Factor #1 from 1986 (first appearance as the X-Factor team), but it’s X-Factor #71 (1991) that will be the “go-to” book as the movie details keep dribbling out. Both of these comics; X-Force (2014 4th Series) #1/She-Hulk (2014 3rd Series) #1 will in fact (most likely) show some strong sales right out of the gate, but will see strong declines as they both carry on. Be aware of the history here, especially with the She-Hulk not so much X-Factor.

Marvel gives the speculators a little bit to chew on this week though. Check out Superior Spider-Man (2012) #27. The Goblin Nation storyline begins here. There will be a $100 variant sketch cover that will bring some return as the storyline heats up and Doc Ock is pushed out for the return of Peter Parker. Get the variant CGC signature series’ and collect your profits accordingly. Do not hold onto this comic for a long duration, you will lose money on it. Gauge the market, and strike when necessary.

The new Captain America movie coming this April will feature the Winter Soldier. So Marvel Comics gets the ball rolling with a new Winter Solider comic; Winter Soldier Bitter March (2014) #1. The absolute comic to get before the movie hits is Captain America #6 (2005). THIS comic is recognized as Winter Soldier’s first appearance by CGC, NOT Captain America #1(2005) like many may think. Captain America #6 is money in the bank folks. Get on it now.

Thor will be dealing with Minotaur in Thor God of Thunder (2012) #19. Minotaur first appeared in a comic written by Stan Lee, art by Don Heck, and a cover by Jack “King” Kirby. That comic is The Avengers #17 (1965).

Revolutionary War (2014 Marvel) #4 will pit two UK Marvel characters against each other; Death’s Head and Death’s Head II. Marvel’s UK Death’s Head first appeared in The Transformers (UK) #117 (1987), and Death’s Head II in Death’s Head II #1 (1992). Marvel UK is bringing it.

Kick-Ass 3 (2013 Marvel) #6 will feature the secret origin of Hit-Girl. The issue has a $30 John Romita Jr. Sketch variant. Not a shabby deal at all here. Get a CGC signature series with Romita Jr. or Millar ink on the cover (9.8 grade or higher as always!) and flip it. A Kick-Ass fan will gobble up a Hit-Girl origin issue signed by one of these two creators.

Two number one issues to definitely look out for this week are Fuse (2014 Image) #1 and Royals Masters Of War (2014) DC #1. Both will have strong sales, do not miss them.

Gravel Combat Magician (2014) (Avatar) #1 will follow William Gravel’s next adventure. And just in case this dude ever gets optioned, be sure to have Strange Kiss #1 (1999) in your stash. His first appearance comes from elite writer Warren Ellis. Yes a book to own, just in case.

Others to check out this week; Devil’s Hopyard (2013) #1, Mercenary Sea (2014) #1, City The Mind In The Machine (2014) #1, and Bunker (2014 Oni Press) #1.

……And last but not least, check out X (2013 Dark Horse) #10. This comic will cue us in on a new X origin. X is a very cool comic character that needs to be on your radar.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem

Comic Broker Report – February 2014 (part 2)

 Two hours in the bathroom not only yielded a better nights sleep but a part 2 for February !  Enjoy!

 

The Brave and the Bold 57 ( First Rex Mason, Metamorpho )

6831-1683-7451-1-brave-and-the-bold-

Do current readers even care who Rex Mason is?  Well if you didn’t catch the name drop by the Earth 2 Batman from this month’s Earth 2 Annual 2 then you might just miss out down the road.

d

SPOILER-In the Earth 2 Annual 2 we finally learn the secret identity of the Earth 2 Batman.  Personally I wasn’t surprised but the story was well crafted and the art was decent.  The most interesting tidbit was the source of Batman’s powers, Miraclo.  Last month I mentioned the importance of this little drug as it relates to the CW and the upcoming Hourman series.  Now we learn it is critical to Earth 2’s most popular character.  The source of Miraclo on Earth 2? Yup, Rex Mason.-END SPOILER

Note:  Jarvis Pennyworth, Alfred’s father is one badass butler!  Read the DC Earth 2 Annual 2 mentioned above to find out what I mean.   Batman 9 isn’t only the first appearance of Strix but Jarvis Pennyworth as well!

2334250-batman_9_cover_1000index

Oh and Earth 2 Batman first appeared in the last year’s Annual 1.

 

Journey into Mystery 97 ( first Surtur )

journey 97 first Surtur

Staying ahead of the game is the key to success if you are buying and selling comics in today’s market.  Rumors concerning the storyline for Thor 3 are already starting to pop up around the web.  If the fire lord Surtur and the Demons of Muspelheim end up central to the story then this classic will quickly increase beyond the nice value it already holds.

Thor Annual 18 ( First Flame/Hrinmeer )

Thor Annual 18 first Flame of Muspelheim Hrinmeer

Though common, this issue of Thor features the half elf/half demon Hrinmeer.  The final battle Ragnarok could be the focal point of Thor 3 making  this issue quite important.   It was pollybagged and easy to find in high grade so I suggest hunting for the newsstand edition!

The X-Men 4 ( first Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver )

X-Men_Vol_1_4

No explanation is needed as to the future importance of these characters.  If you are reading this article then I assume you love the Avengers and X-Men as much as I do!  You will NEVER find this comic for a cheap price and though that makes a bargain hunter like me mad it does not make it any less important to collectors.

Avengers 181 ( First Scott Lang )

728415

Over the last few years Marvel Premiere 47 has been hot.  Knowing that an Ant-Man film was coming, collectors were quick to snag this Bronze Age gem.  As information about the film has started to leak fans are realizing that while Scott appeared as Ant-Man in MP 47 he actually appeared first in this Avengers comic!

X-Factor 19/Marvel Age Annual 3 ( First Horsemen of Apocalypse )

1457855-389px_x_factor_vol_1_19196629-19177-114773-1-marvel-age-annual

Currently no one knows what Marvel films has in store for the Apocalypse/X-Men film.  AOA?  It’s possible with Blink in the mix.  There is also a strong likelihood that the Horsemen will be involved.  So while hoarders and flippers are banking copies of X-Factor 5,6,& 24 you might just want to scoop these up while those other guys are distracted:

X-Factor 15 ( First Pestilence/Plague )

12260_20051213090130_large

X-Factor 11 ( First War/Abraham Kieros )

5718_20060205211227_large

x-Factor 12 ( First Famine, Autumn Rolfson )

X-Factor_Vol_1_12

Astonishing X-Men ( Second Series, 1,1a,1c – First Wolverine as Death )

5635_20110503025329_large576325

You never know how Marvel Film’s is going to alter comic storylines so there is always the  possibility that Wolverine could end up one of the Horsemen in Singer’s next film. If that happens this comic will explode.

Note: There is also a Dynamic Forces Marvel Authentix Edition limited to 3,500, and a signed edition.

The Amazing-Spider-Man Annual 8 ( First Alistair Smythe )

annual 19 spider-man first Smythe

Spider-Man 2 is filling up with villains, I hope the script is well written to accommodate the Sinister-Six never mind the inventor of Spider-Slayers!

Nick Fury VS. S.H.I.E.L.D. 3 ( First Alexander Pierce )

62432-4061-95427-1-nick-fury-vs-s-h-i

Hopefully this Agent played by Robert Redford doesn’t end up the Red Skull is disguise but even if he doesn’t his first appearance is relatively easy to find.

DMZ ( 1, 2008 Convention Variant )

Vertigo is enjoying a lot of TV and film rumors lately including this incredible tale by Brian Wood.  Issue 1 is not easy to find but this con exclusive is the real cherry.

f85f6173-ae2c-411a-9106-35b4dc01f179

Or you could get the first appearance of the series from this fine Vertigo title.  It’s much cheaper too!

Y the Last Man 37

JUL050310

22 Brides 1,2 ( First Painkiller Jane )

index indexs

267964_20130228232714_large

You could buy issue 1 or it’s Comic Cavalcade Variant but then you would only own a cameo of Painkiller Jane.  So far all adaptions of this brutal beauty have fizzled.  That does not bode well for long term investing, that is if you like profit.  But the issue 2 variant above and it’s regular cover ( not pictured ) are not easily found and feature her first full appearance!

Red Star ( Wizard 1/2, Wizard 1/2 Foil, Issue 1,6 Variant and any of the DF signed editions )

739407image-red-star-issue-6bred-star1

It looks like this film adaptation is a reality.  I have always loved this series and highly recommend it to those who love original sequential art stories.  At this point I would look for: both wizard 1/2 issues, issue one of the regular series, any DF signed editions and the variant for issue 6.

J.A.R.V.I.S. as the Vision?!?!?

index

Late last year I recommended The Invincible  Iron Man 10, 10 variant, 10 secret retailer varian, 10 2nd print, 11 & 11 2nd print.  I speculated that the J.A.R.V.I.S. AI from Marvel Films might factor into the origin of Ultron.  Well it turns out that the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Paul Bettany has been cast to play the Vision!  Watch these comics explode as a result.

Squee ( All printings for all issues! )

images

The Cartoon Network is adapting this Slave Labor classic!  Issues have multiple printings and are all super rare.  This one should spike in value due to the fact that the internet is going to be the primary source for copies.

Legends 3 ( First Modern Suicide Squad )

index

Honestly I am having are hard time recommending this one.  It’s not the first appearance of the SS, it’s not rare or hard to find and it’s part of a mini-series.  But it will continue to get hot especially after the most recent episode of Arrow.  As far as Suicide Squad issues to buy there are others which I would purchase before this one. What are they? Check back next month!

Comic Broker Report – February 2014 (part 1)

This month it’s all first appearances!  Enjoy!

 

Thor 337

lorelei

Not only is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show bringing Sif and Deathlok to the small screen but we can also look forward to drooling over Lorelei, the sex crazed daughter of the Enchantress!  Anyone who has high grade copies/newsstand editions rejoice!  Fans of Beta Ray Bill  should be pleased  as an increase in value for a this comic is probable.

New Guardians 2 of 12

index

1736155-snowflame

On occasion a comic comes out of nowhere and blindsides even the most savvy collector.  So where have all the copies of #2 of this forgettable series gone?   Fans of SnowFlame, the cocaine powered villain, have bought most of them.  He only appeared in this comic so until someone writes him into the New 52 this is his first and last appearance.  The good news-you will have better luck finding this comic in a LCS rather than online.

 

Detective Comics 27 ( New 52 ) has been burning up the back issue market.  But with multiple variants that the majority of fans have no shot at owning unless they are willing to drop a car size payment, I say pass.  But if you love the new and creative character appearances I suggest these cheaper alternatives:

Oh and who is Clayton Parker?

Batman 448 – First Lark

Batman448

In the future Lark has fallen in some heroic way or she wouldn’t be enshrined in the Cave of the Batmen!

Showcase 96  #3

528871-10455_4_003

The Wings of Truth first appear in the Detective Comics issue 27 ( New 52 ) but it looks like they are the evolution of The Birds of Prey who first appeared above.

Talon 0 – First Calvin Rose/Talon aka The Gothamite

2610759-talon_cv0_ds

Teen titans 7 ( New 52 )

245901_20121021163434_large

Much like Lark, Harvest is shown in Detective Comics 27 and looks to play a critical role in the DCU for the foreseeable future.

Batman Beyond Unlimited 2

1052421

Luke Fox/ Batwing aka Flying Fox

2259325-bb003_pg020

Luke Fox has one of the coolest Batsuits I have ever seen put to paper.  Here he’s a little long in the tooth but imagine all the wonderful adventures he will have from now until he slides into the forgettable frame above!

Batman 9 – first Strix ( Mary Turner )

2334250-batman_9_cover_1000

Despite all the variants  for this issue I recommend it for the debut of Strix.  Now in the Birds of Prey ( and possibly the future Wings of Truth? ) she is a complex character with ties to the Court of Owls.

Note: Strix also appears in issue 9 of Batgirl ( new 52 ) which was released in the same month.

 

Other Comics:

Elektra Assassin 2 – first John Garrett

24422-3630-27180-1-elektra-assassin

One of my favorite actors is coming to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D!  If you can recite Bill Paxton’s pre-drop speech from Aliens then you and I would get along.  Are you wondering who’s going to take on Deathlok? It’s safe safe to assume that Agent Coulson will bring in this cybernetic enhanced heavy to do the dirty work!  Look for his first appearance in this classic Marvel comic!

Captain America 607 – first Beetle ( Lincoln )

1283940-204536_20100630160032_large

Put that badass Beetle suit on a woman and you have a recipe for an undervalued villain just waiting for collectors to notice.

Adventure Comics 69 – first Miraclo

308795-3105-123051-1-adventure-comics first miraclo

The CW is still on track to adapt Hourman.  This one isn’t cheap but rumor has it the Miraclo formula will be an essential component to the show’s formula!

Daredevil 115

index

Growing debates as to what a true first appearance is can be as fun as they are frustrating. Do you believe Hulk 180 is Wolverine’s first appearance?  If so you may want to look at the end of this Daredevil comic and let me know if your mind changes.

World’s Finest 6  ( first Mentallo )

205399-18006-115314-1-world-s-finest-comic first metallo

Are we being tosses a red Herring from DC?  Latest rumors put Mentallo alongside Lex Luthor as the main antagonists for Superman VS Batman film.  My money is still on Doomsday or at least a cameo of the Kryptonian behemoth but if I’m wrong this issue is gonna jump.

BONUS!!!

Sandman 5 – first Merv Pumpkinhead!

sandman 5 first merve pumpkinhead

Why you ask?  Cause he’s def the greatest pumpkin related characters in comic history!

If that is Nimrod in the most recent Days of Future Past trailer and on the cover of Empire, you had better stock up on these!

Michael D’Alessio of ACBC

ACBC_2015_Atlantic_City_HOT

From the AC Broadwalk Con Facebook page: *AC BOARDWALK CON (ACBC for short) is a BRAND NEW CONVENTION in ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY! With over 300,000 square feet of floor space, 40+ panel/theatre rooms, ACBC will bring to NJ a Con that will put FANS FIRST at every touchpoint*

ACBC_2015Michael D’Alessio is the creator of the AC Broadwalk Con in Atlantic City New Jersey (May 14-17 2014). With Michael’s very busy schedule, he was kind enough to sit down for a few questions with InvestComics to talk about the awesome show/ plans/guest he has on tap for the ACBC.

Hello Michael, thanks for stopping by InvestComics.

(InvestComics): So first thing first Michael. Tell us a bit about yourself.

(Michael D’Alessio): I’ve been a comic/superhero fan since I was 4 years old, growing up watching The Superfriends, Wonder Woman, Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman, Hulk, Isis & Shazam Power Hour, etc.  I’m 41 now, and when I meet any of the actors from these series I tell them that THEY made me want to work in this industry, and that without them embodying my comics, I wouldn’t be where I am today in my career and my life.

(Atlantic_City_ACBCIC): What made you decide on the Atlantic City location for your show?

(M): I was kicking around the idea for the show all of 2013. I get to go to most of the larger shows in the country and overseas as I own a marketing agency with the majority of our clients in the comic/movie/gaming industry. I just never understood why New Jersey never had a major show. I was chatting with one of my best friends who is a casual fan, and I said I want to do a comic con style show, but not a comic con per se. I was kicking around “A” named cities and he said, Atlantic City. It was genius. I live in New Jersey on the Shore. I love my state. Why not? Plus, AC is a 6 hour drive to over 40% of the US population, so it makes sense.

(IC): You recently launched the ACBC website. Congrats! Is there a signup there yet for fans?

(M): Yes, there’s a space on the bottom for fans to sign up and make comments. This site is our Phase 1. Phase 2 which is more robust is launching in March. Same look.  Same feel. More “meat” to it. We also have our facebook.com/acboardwalkcon which allows us to really interact with the fans. And of course, Twitter.

(IC): There is one thing that jumps out right away about the AC Boardwalk Con, the 4 day schedule. By design, did you originally set out to maximize the awesomeness? And what will separate the ACBC from other Comic Conventions?

(M): We’re actually interested in doing it for 5 days in 2016! Here’s my take on it. As a marketer who designs, builds and in some instances hosts major booths at SDCC, NYCC, C2E2, PAX, etc., I know that the exhibitors want to bring their “A” game to shows, but sometimes for a 2-day show that’s just not possible. So I had that in mind. Also, for fans who want to fly in (and we’re pulling people already not just from our region, but all over the country, Canada, Mexico, Europe and even Japan), we don’t want them to come for a 2 day show. We also didn’t want to create a show that’s in a seminar room of a hotel. We went the convention center route because, quite honestly, it NEEDS to be held there to accommodate and allow for exhibitors and fans to interact properly.

As of now, We have a teaser opening on Thursday (7 pm – 2 AM) but we may end up opening all day on Thursday if demand is there. I have a feeling, even 17 months out, that it will be. We’re getting tremendous interest in the show.

ACBC_Spidey

(IC): Being this is your first show Michael, for many people in the market thinking about putting a show together, what resistance/obstacles if any have you encountered or advice do you have for them?

(M): Well, it’s our first show as Show Management. But we have some great advantages. Being that we’ve been so active with major exhibitors (Marvel, 2K Games, Boom! Studios, etc.) for so many years, we know the ins and outs of the show management teams we’ve worked with at Comic-Con International and Reed Pop. We have fantastic relationships with them, and with other shows such as Wizard, GamesCom, etc. So, we knew what we were going into better than I assume most do.

The other advantage we have is all of the learnings that we have under our belts from clients that are demanding (In a good way!) and won’t settle for mediocrity. That allows us to know that we cannot put on a “shoot from the hip” show. We know that excellence is the level we much achieve from a visual/aesthetic stand point, as well as from an infrastructure stand point. Additionally, we’ve been blessed to get to know the fans on a VERY interpersonal level at shows.  The fans… I mean… they’re just the best.  So we have heard for years what they want, and what frustrates them, what excites them, etc. This gives us definitely a guiding light and it’s at the precipice of all of our show designs.

(IC): Who would you say is the one person that you’d love to have as a guest?

(M): Lynda Carter. Hands Down.  It’s no secret I’m probably the biggest Wonder Woman fan next to Phil Jimenez, so it may seem a little selfish. But in reality, it’s because SHE was the one actress/actor who, to a young boy, really brought the comics to life. And my second major guest, Chris Hemmsworth. I’ve been lucky enough to work with him at the Marvel booth. The man is one of the nicest person I’ve ever worked with and to me, he’s Thor. I can’t imagine anyone else in that role (and Thor is my third favorite hero of all time).

Cosplay(IC): Speaking of guest, the show isn’t until May of 2015. Can you give us a tease of a few guest you have on board? Will the Donald make an appearance?!

(M): Well… I DID do an appearance on 2 of THE APPRENTICE shows, so I’m sure I can reach out to him. (And I definitely give him my fair share of money at The Taj Mahal Casino!). We do have some guests confirmed, but I want to be clear. It’s a FANTASTIC mix.  This show is an amalgamation of comics, gaming, cosplay, horror and all things geek. Our guests will be pulled from those realms.  If you’re at the pinnacle of cosplay… we’ll be talking to you.  If you’re a programmer/developer for games, trust me, you’re being contacted. Thankfully, after 20+ years in the entertainment marketing industry, I have a lot of contacts, as does my staff, so we can get to the people we want to.

(IC): Do you find that fans are requesting a certain guest more so than others? Like say Stan Lee?

(M): Stan Lee. Stan Lee. Stan Lee. I hear the chants in my head all day long. We love Stan. He’s a great guy. I’ve worked with him for over 8 years. Here’s a quick story about my show and Stan…

I was talking to one of Stan’s staff in the green room at NYCC. Max and I were talking about my show and how I want to make it different, etc. Stan was relaxing before having to appear on stage. He called me over to him and asked me to tell him about the show. He listened to my ideas. Gave me a few insights and told me that any way he can help me he will. THAT’S the way the man is. He’s just that great.

(IC): Besides the website, where else can fans find out about the latest news and happenings regarding the AC Boardwalk Con?

(M): Our Facebook is facebook.com/acboardwalkcon We tend to post about the show, industry news, etc.  Plus we love the interaction on there.  Our Twitter is twitter.com/acboardwalkcon or @Acboardwalkcon

(IC): You’ve mentioned Master Classes and such on your Facebook page. Can you elaborate?

(M): Our panel rooms are going to be set up like a university. Think along the lines of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. We’ll have 100 level, 200 level, 300 level, 400 level and Master Classes. The 100 level may have a class: Basics of Drawing faces and bodies. 200 level may have: Scripting for Video Gaming. 300 level could include: Creating a sewing pattern for superhero costumes. 400 level most certainly would include a class on Storyboarding for Comics. Then the Master Classes. These are hosted by masters in our industries. We’re working with industry leaders to host the classes that would really showcase their skills, such as if Phil Jimenez was to teach a Master Class on Sequential Drawing for Comics or such. We’re asking ALL of our exhibitors to host at least 1 Master Class. We have over 40 rooms available for classes, so we expect to have a lot going on.

Additionally, when you attend one of the classes, you’ll receive a Con Pin. They’re kind of like credits in a university. Each one is a different color for each level class. They’re autographed by the host of the class, and we have a secret, yet really cool, payoff that’s based on how many Con Pins (credits) you complete.

(IC): Last question, have to ask! Since this is a relatively heavy investment/speculator website, what book do you own in your personal collection holds the greatest value monetarily? Don’t worry no one knows where you live.

(M): All of them. Sorry not being coy. But I LOVE my books. I have so many comic books I’ve had to start buying online mostly now due to space issues. But I wouldn’t sell any of them for anything. They are the stories of my friends.

That said… I DO have quite a few signed books, and well, I had an honor a few years back. Gail Simone wrote me into her run of Wonder Woman and used my likeness as one of Diana Prince’s team members, a “sharp shooter who shoots first and asks questions later”. I DO have that framed and up on the wall. That meant the world to me.

My art is just as important. I have so many pieces from Choice Collectibles, originals pencils and paint by Alex Ross (from Justice), original Terry Dodson covers, original JG Jones pages from Hiketia, etc. I love comic art tremendously!

Thanks for stopping by Michael. We’ll see you in AC in 2015!
