Batgirl #9 continues the Ethan Cobblepot story. Batgirl meets up with Ethan’s daddy; The Penguin. Writer Hope Larson, artist Christian Wildgoose.
Mitch Gerads’ Vigilante Southland #6 cover pays homage to Keith Pollard’s Vigilante #1 (1983).

Madame Hydra seems to be the one behind Steve Rogers becoming the ‘bad guy’. Find out in Captain America: Steve Rogers #14 what the Madam has been up to. Writer Nick Spencer and artist Javier Pina bring some(?) of the reasons as to why Steve Rogers is all about Hydra these days. Many fanboys had their panties all tied up too tight when Steve hailed Hydra a little while back and needed something to complain about instead of realizing that Marvel was telling a story. All will be well in given time, back to normal. It’s absurd how some fans were reacting. Getting back to Madam Hydra; her first appearance was in Captain America #110 (1969). Penciled by Jim Steranko and written by Stan Lee. Classic cover from Steranko.
A new Iron Fist #1 comic from writer Ed Brisson and artist Mike Perkins hits this Wednesday. We are quite sure this comic will get more respect than the new Netflix television show is getting. Lots of variant covers to choose from.

Ms. Marvel #12 – The Red Widow Alessandro Taini variant is selling VERY well. We stated in the InvestComics Hot Picks #447 article that this issue features a 10 page story on Red Widow and we thought this could be Red Widow’s first cover appearance. Red Widow first appeared late last year in Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 and hasn’t seen much action thereafter. Well, looks like Marvel is making their move. Both the regular cover and Taini variant is sold out. 

Spook House #1 – New Albatross Exploding book. Eric Powell showed some muscle on his Hillbilly release. Will Spook House find the some success? There aren’t that many available on Ebay at the moment.

Skeptics #1 – The NYCC exclusive is having some good aftermarket success. The regular number issue comes out this Wednesday.

Seven To Eternity #2 – The number one issue exploded out of the gate. Issue number two comes this week.

Deadpool #21 – The introduction of Shakespool. To buy or not to buy?

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: Swamp Thing #7 9.2 (1973). Last week we found a high grade Swamp Thing signed by legend Bernie Wrightson. This week we revisit Swamp Thing with issue number seven graded at 9.2. The highlights of this particular comic; The first meeting ever between Batman and Swamp Thing drawn by Bernie Wrightson. Fans of Bernie know that he is an amazing Batman artist. His Batman: The Cult series with Jim Starlin is a classic. A high grade first meeting done by a creative legend for only $99.

With all of the new DC Rebirth comics and Marvel relaunching so many titles as well, a collector has to keep on top of the number one books as far as first appearances go. It’s happening quite often. One of these new players can bust out in a big way, so as always, be on alert.

Wonder Woman fans and comic fans will be treated to an awesome book this week. Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1 will be a who’s who in the creative industry within these pages. Variants galore (Jim Lee! Sweet.), creators galore, new stories, and DC states that there will be creators that have never illustrated Wonder Woman in a comic before, but will do so for the first time here. A steep $7.99 price tag may keep some away, but a definite pick up for us.
Flash #9 cover pays homage to the classic Flash #123 (1961). Original cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson. The Wednesday cover is by Carmine Di Giandomenico. What’s the odds of having two Carmine’s like that? Probably slim, but obviously possible.
A new Batman Beyond #1 from writer Dan Jurgens and artist Bernard Chang finds its way to a shelf near you. This number one makes its sixth volume debut. That’s a lot of number one debuts right? How about another sixth volume number one this week? Teen Titans #1 is also entering that six time debut issue this Wednesday.

From a sixth volume we go to a second volume. Detective Comics #943 may have a first appearance. Be on the look out for that. Rafael Albuquerque supplies a great second cover (B).
Speaking of covers, check out the Aco cover on Deathstroke #5. We love it.
A new DC Vigilante comic will be one to read this week; Vigilante Southland #1. We can’t help but reminisce about the first Vigilante series in the early 80’s that started off with writer Marv Wolfman and artist Keith Pollard in Vigilante #1 (1983). It lasted fifty issues with writer Paul Kupperberg and penciler Steve Erwin ending the series with an amazing story. Comic readers should definitely check out this short fifty issue series. Be prepared for an ending to this series as to none other in Vigilante #50. Click HERE to check out all the Vigilante comics available from all sellers on Ebay. Great series. We hope this Wednesday Gary Phillips (writer) and Elena Casagrande (artist) deliver as much fun as that 80’s series did. We have confidence they will. So we’ll be picking this up on new comic book day.

We informed readers a few weeks ago regarding the new Doctor Strange team (InvestComics Hot Picks #443). Seems like everyone is getting a team these days right? Anyway, the Wednesday Doctor Strange Sorcerers Supreme #1 will “debut” the Sorcerers Supreme team. As so Marvel may say, but we all know they debuted a few weeks ago in Doctor Strange Annual #1 as we already tipped you off.
The Doctor Strange movie must be drawing nearer because fans will be inundated with Strange books and appearances everywhere. Hence TWO number one comics released in the same week. Besides his new team book, comic fans will get Doctor Strange Mystic Apprentice #1.

Marvel’s Civil War II is closing in on it’s final issue, so the battle intensifies. Civil War II #6; Check out that Marko Djurdjevic Spidey cover too. Caps in trouble!
The Punisher Annual #1 hits this week with one of the best Halloween covers from Marvel in a while. The cover is from Rahzzah.  Although the Ron Lim variant is awesome too. Wow on both.

Every month we will remind fans of the latest Spider-Man Deadpool release because we’ve told you time after time it will sell out. We’ve been saying this since issue number one. Spider-Man Deadpool #10 will be on the new release wall. It’ll probably….ah never mind, you get the idea.
Another one of our speculation calls comes to fruition. We called the Deadpool Mercs For Money characters to all get their own books soon back in January of this year. We provided everyone with their first appearances in the InvestComics Hot Picks #409 article and touched on these characters quite a few times thereafter. This week we see another one of those characters debuting in their own comic; Prowler #1.
….And Deadpool #21 this week debuts Shakespool. Need we say more on that one?

Ms. Marvel #12 will not only have a Red Widow 10 page story, but a Red Widow variant cover by Alessandro Taini as well. It’s quite awesome. We think this is the first Red Widow cover appearance since she first appeared in Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 late last year.

Image Comics releases two second print number one issues this week. Surgeon #1 and Seven To Eternity #1. Both of these comics bring their second issue this week as well; Surgeon #2 and Seven To Eternity #2.
Fresh off of a huge New York Comic Con 2016 presence, Valiant Entertainment debuts a new Bloodshot series; Bloodshot USA #1. All the variants covers are amazing. We like the Doug Braithwaite as our favorite. Also, with every release we remind readers and collectors about Generation Zero from Valiant. We think Generation Zero is the modern day team for the modern day comic reader. Check out Generation Zero #3 this Wednesday.
Eric Powell’s imprint Albatross Exploding publishing are reaping the rewards from their hit comic Hillbilly. This week they will reap rewards once again with their kids anthology series Spookhouse #1. A collection of scary stories from yours truly; Eric Powell.
Black Mask Comics, is a small publisher with big idea’s. We say it ALL the time, buy Black Mask comics. They’re always quality reads and sometimes pay dividends on the speculative side. Can’t go wrong here. This week from Black Mask Comics; Skeptics #1.

Put together one of the most popular video games of all time with a popular genre of today and you’ll get Call of Duty Zombies #1 comic from Dark Horse.
Here are some other great indie comics to check out this week. Markiplier #1 (Red Giant Entertainment). Wolfcop #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Inspector Oh #1 (Devils Due Publishing). Another Castle #5 (Kris Anka cover art).

Each week InvestComics will bring readers a few comics that have been long since forgotten. There is no redeeming value what so ever, but great reading value here. And that in itself is the best value any collector could get out of comics. So take a read about some of these once hot books and not so hot books back in the day. Happy hunting!

Zot #1 (1984) – This series was a popular one back in the 80’s. It’s a Scott McCloud creation. It was from Eclipse Comics, which put out some great comics. Zot lasted about 40 issues or so. The first issue is a scarce get.

Jack of Hearts #1 (1984) – One of the best D level Marvel characters ever. Back in 1984, this limited series hit with little fanfare, but was still a great read. Writer Bill Mantlo brought Jack of Hearts to a new level here. So much so (insert sarcasm here) that Jack of Hearts went on to appear about 10 more times in various comics in the next 7 years. Jack first appeared in The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #22 (Cameo). His first full appearance is in the next issue; The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #23. Here’s a cool thing here. The creator of Jack of Hearts (Bill Mantlo) teamed with the great Keith Giffen on the cameo issue, then teamed with Legend Gil Kane for the first full appearance. That’s an impressive cameo and first right? Oh Jack of Hearts where art thou?

Six From Sirius #1 (1984) – An amazingly fun four part space epic from Marvel’s imprint Epic Comics. Writen by Doug Moench and pencils by Paul Gulacy. The series did well and spawned another limited series a year later. Rumors had this coming to the big screen a few times, but who knows if that will ever happen. A great story here nonetheless.

Vigilante #1 (1983) – Boy was this a great comic back in the 80’s. With Marvel’s Punisher character gaining more popularity, DC gave fans Vigilante and it was spectacularly fun. Brought to you by the always reliable great storyteller Marv Wolman and art by Keith Pollard. Vigilante’s first appearance was in New Teen Titans Annual #2 (Adrian Chase). The series went on to last only 50 issues, but what a fantastic action packed comic book run it was. Alan Moore and Gil Kane were part of this great series. Vigilante #50 was a controversial issue because Vigilante took his own life, thus ending the series of course. A scarce series ending issue. Low print run.

The Badger #1 (1983) – Speaking of fun action packed comics, The Badger was just that. Capital Comics had a few comics that are worth looks, this was one of them. They went out of business and Badger moved on to First Comics as of issue #5. Writer Mike Baron at the helm here. A great independent title that lasted 70 issues.

Blue Devil #1 (1984) – Here is a DC rated D character that first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm #24. An engaging character that never really caught on with many, but did have a following. The series went on to last 31 issues, but Blue Devil has appeared throughout the DC Universe on a regular basis despite the non demand for him thereafter. He recently showed up in one of the InvestComics Hot Picks (#369) Justice League #40. And this book is semi-hot right not. Not because of Blue Devil.

Jemm Son of Saturn #1 (1984) – Here is the first appearance of this character in a 12 issue limited series. Jemm goes on to make brief appearances, but never takes on a leadership role. Another D level character here. An interesting limited series featuring Superman in issues 3-6. Gene Colon pencils. Jemm also appears in the recent Justice League #40.

Young Love #125 (1977) Here is one of those that will have you scratching your head. Simonson did the cover for this romance comic.

Thor #260 (1977) Almost all creators get linked to a certain character(s) during their career. Some creators find a niche with a career and they take it to another level, thus making them “that creator” on that particular character(s) that fans relate to. This comic here is not that comic. Well, not yet anyways. Walt Simonson does not find his grove with the Thor character until six years later, but here is the first pencils and a collaborated cover (Joe Sinnott) on the Thor character. More on Thor in a bit…..

Batman #300 (1978) Here is a Batman anniversary issue Walt penciled.

Thor #337 (1983) Walt Simonson pencil/ink/writes and does the now iconic cover. It’s the first appearance of Beta Ray Bill. What more can be said about this comic that hasn’t been said yet? This was the game changer for Walt Simonson. This was THE character he owned. Walt made Thor HIS character here. There’s Kirby and the there is Simonson. Walt made Thor #337 the hottest comic on the planet back in the 80′s. It is still a book to own if you don’t already. Beta Ray Bill will eventually make it to the big screen and when he does, look out here. The iconic cover alone is enough to make collectors want it. Walt Simonson solidified himself as a creator right here. As said earlier, every creator has that character(s) that they own. Most creators also have that defining moment in their career where they catch something just right and fans begin the process of bringing them to that next level as they so fittingly deserve. This is that defining moment for Walt Simonson. Thor is Simonson’s, the fans spoke out in 1983. Walt has officially arrived.
