We all love Jim Lee right? Heck, InvestComics had an entire Creator Spotlight on Jim Lee right HERE from 2015. Why are we talking Jim Lee? Well, it’s because Marvel has this bright idea of the ‘Jim Lee Card Covers’ campaign and they’re……well…..very underwhelming. They show their 90’s age and we get it, but not when we know what we can truly get from Jim. We’re not being a Debbie downer, we’re being honest (which we have always been). Take a look at the Champions, Daredevil, AvengersIron Fist, SpiderMan, X-Men Gold card covers and you tell us different. Not from a fanboys perspective, but a true gauge. Very retro and not feeling it. The All-New Wolverine #22 card cover is the standalone that wins us over. If there are more Jim Lee card covers coming, we hope they become more appealing.

The very successful Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe #1 spawned a number of copycats as well another very successful ‘Marvel kill book’; Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1. Now Marvel goes back to the well and makes Deadpool do it all over again in Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe Again #1. We don’t make this stuff up, or the titles, we report on it. Written by the awesome Cullen Bunn and art by Michael Walsh.

InvestComics Creator Spotlight : Jim Lee – Click This Image

The new Spider-Man Homecoming movie comes out next week. It will have the Vulture as Spidey’s main adversary. Spider-Man: The Master Plan #1 is a new story where Spidey does battle with The Crime Master. It also has a bonus reprinting of Amazing Spider-Man #2 in it. Yes that one, the first appearance of the Vulture. See, we came full circle there. Writer Robbie Thompson and artist Nathan Stockman.
InvestComics informed readers a long while ago about a silly Marvel character name Slapstick. Right after informing our loyal fans, the first appearance went from a 50 cent comic to a ten dollar book. After we brought up that Slapstick could be a breakout character, he was announced to appear in a cartoon. Then his own series came out. Now he makes his second appearance within the Spider-Man/Deadpool series (Spider-Man/Deadpool #3 his first) in this Wednesday’s Spider-Man/Deadpool #19. The ‘One More Day’ rip from Joe Quesada is lovely. Kudos to Will Robson for this. Spider-Man/Deadpool #19 will be a two-part story with the trio Spidey/Deadpool/Slapstick. Slapstick #1 (1992) is the first appearance of this ridiculous character and $10 can snag him for your collection. And so what, we think Slapstick has more upside, who would have ever thought a talking raccoon would make any sense. Written by Joshua Corin and art by Will Robson.

We usually don’t cover any of the Marvel ‘True Believer’ comics, they are reprints, but we have a certain love for that Spider-Man #1 True Believers (original) Todd McFarlane cover, so we mention it. That’s it. Thank you for your attention.
Star Wars #33. 33 is our favorite number. No reason to mention this awesomely written series otherwise.

InvestComics Deathstroke Checklist -Click Image

Deathstroke #21 will be a major turning point for the character. For the first time ever, Slade, A.K.A. Deathstroke, will don a cape and wear a new costume. He’s a superhero now. No more an assassin for hire. He brings with him a new superhero team that debuted in the last issue. This issue though, the NEW Deathstroke joins his NEW team. Writer Christopher Priest brings the new hero to life, as artist Diogenes Neves brings the new visual.
It seems DC Comics cannot print enough Batman #24 comics. The ‘Marry Me’ issue hits its third printing this week.
Part two of ‘The War of Jokes and Riddles’; Batman #26. Written by Tom King. Illustrated by Mikel Janin.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
Sacred Creatures #1 (Image Comics). Writers Klaus Janson & Pablo Raimondi (artist). A 66 page debut.
A subtle, but yet a keen comic fan will see the cover swipe (homage) right away with Ash vs The Army of Darkness #1. Pasquale Qualano honors the Jurgens/Breeding Superman #75 (Death of Superman) cover.
It’s hard to believe the Archie Comics character Sabrina was introduced almost 55 years ago and her father and mother were first introduced in 2007. Crazy right? Sabrina the Teenage Witch #89 (2007) is the issue we are speaking off. This week, her daddy, Edward Spellman makes his sixth ever appearance in Sabrina #7. We get his origin story. 55 years later. It comes with a spectacular Moritat cover too.

The Comic Broker’s Report – December 2013

Instead of wasting your time with sharp wit and wonderful one-liners I’m getting right to the point this month.  The fact is, I grew up collecting comics in the most over-printed, over-hyped era the world had ever seen.  There was no internet, Better than Ezra sucked 14.99 a cd out of too many people’s pockets and the Arch Deluxe had it’s short run ( man I miss that burger ).  So trust me when I say that I cannot believe I am recommending some of these comics.  But I do love a bargain and dollar bin fodder like these offer little risk for max reward, something this collector chews on heartily.

 

The Kindred 3 ( first Team 7 )

index

DC speculation runs wild this week.  I’m more of a DC collector than anything else but Team 7?  The comic world has gone apeshit crazy if u ask me.  These issues are littering back issue graveyards all over the country.  I recommend the variant ( not pictured here )

Note: The Gen 13 Variant this variant connects to was once a back issue darling.  My how things have changed…

Booster Gold 1

images

Now here’s  a DC property I can get behind.  Booster is a character that could translate very well to TV.  Unfortunately  there aren’t many Booster comics heating up the back issue market.  Issue one of the original series is actually not that easy to find in high grade and is his first appearance.

WildC.A.T.S.  1 ( First Grifter )

Gold edition, Ace Edition, 3D edition

indexWildCATs01-3D$(KGrHqFHJBsFGznKheugBR1Ecs!RJQ~~60_35

I just cannot bring myself to suggest that the massively over printed issue one of this series will ever see significant increases in value.  But Grifter was once a popular character and that matters.  Anyone who has the Ace edition, 3d edition or the rare gold variant ( many were signed by Jim Lee ) should expect gold down the road, that is if Grifter ever gets a live treatment.

Note:  There are some who would say that Grifter first appeared in Malibu Sun 15.  Seeing as Spawn’s appearance on the cover of issue 13 goes for big money I am inclined to agree.  Finding it is going to be impossible though.

124756_20090609093648_large

The Brave and Bold 25 ( First Suicide Squad )

300px-Brave_and_the_Bold_v.1_25

Here’s a golden oldie you will never find cheap.  But for those who have it rejoice!  Like the other DC properties mentioned above the first appearance of this team already has value.  A TV series or film would only make those who don’t have it cry that much harder.

Batman 12 Limited Capullo Variant

bmcv12

I mention this one again for one simple reason.  Scott Snyder is no fool.  Adding a back up story in the most recent  Batman: Zero Year issue can only mean one thing-he has big plans for the Rows, not just Harper.

Green Lantern 81 ( First Young Justice )

360807-4363-43049-2-green-lanternindex140 $T2eC16dHJGkE9no8iPO!BRDE2(5Ebw~~60_35

There are two covers and two DC Universe UPC variants for this issue of the Green Lantern.  Why should you care? If the recently rumored Young Justice CW adaptation gets the green light you can thank me when you sell your hoard and put the kid through community college free.  Ok that’s not gonna happen but you can always flip any cgc 9.8s into something that matters like a Following Poe mask

Foll47

or a full run of something like this,

index

Note: Anyone looking for my personal top ten collectible masks list, message me.

Hitman 8

images

I can find no conformation either way that the Saint of Killers appears or does not appear in this, and some other issues of this incredible series.  With all the hype over an AMC Preacher show  this one could be a sleeper.

Uncanny X-Men 221

With all the heat surrounding X-Facor 5 and 6 it shouldn’t be long before supplies of Mr. Sinister’s first appearance  run dry.

3648_20060728002120_large

Amazing Spider-Man Annual 5 & the JC Penny Variant

Amazing_Spider-Man_Annual_Vol_1_5

If you have seen the trailer for Spider-Man 2 then you know why I am recommending this issue again.  The  first film cut Peter’s Parent’s footage but dad show up in the recent preview.  It looks like the secrets Pete gave up are going to be central to the storyline and that’s a good thing for those who believe annuals matter.

Spider-Man 2

You are not seeing things, that was the Vulture wing suit in the trailer for ASM 2.  Got issue 2?  If not now is the time to buy.
