The offspring of Supes and Bats have made quite the name for themselves these days. So enter DC’s next big hit series, Super Sons #1. Could you imagine if DC/Warner Bros ever got their act together and made an amazing “Spielberg” feel/type of Super Sons film? It would appeal to everyone. Everyone, meaning tapping the young audience and female audience. It would be the equivalent of Marvel’s Power Pack. We said it years ago about Power Pack for Marvel, what is Disney waiting for? Super Sons #1 from writer Peter J Tomasi and artist Jorge Jimenez.
Jim Lee’s Wildstorm will be reintroduced to comic book fans. This time as Wild Storm. They made a bold new change and made Wildstorm two words. Crazy right?? Anyway, Wild Storm #1 will bring writer Warren Ellis on board along with artist Jon Davis-Hunt. Creator of Wildstorm, Jim Lee, has a variant accompanying the big release, but it’s the regular Jon Davis-Hunt cover that will have fans really turning their heads.

We pointed out the love we had for the new DC Odyssey Of The Amazons series. We also pointed out the possible plethora of new characters that will appear within this series. This Wednesday, Odyssey Of The Amazons #2 will be more of the same. Great storytelling and new characters, what more does one need?
A new story begins in Justice League #15, ‘Timeless’. A possible first appearance here. The new storyline will be brought to us by Bryan Hitch (writer) and Fernando Pasarin (artist).

As all of the Creator Spotlights on InvestComics, each and every one of the creators have their own uniqueness. Rob Liefeld stormed into the industry back in 1987 and took the industry by the proverbial ears, starred into its eyes and said “I’m taking over.” So he he did.

He was one of the busiest creators in the industry at one time. The man was churning out comics at a ridiculous rate. That was good for the fans because they couldn’t seem to get enough.

Check out some of Rob Liefeld’s key books in his vast career thus far. Everything from Deadpool to Jada Pinkett Smith. Yes Jada….

New Mutants #87 (1990) The first appearance of Cable. Pencils by Liefeld, cover art with McFarlane. A classic cover that still gets paid respect in today’s cover art.

Marc Spector, Moon Knight #19 (1990) A solo Rob Liefeld Moon Knight cover with Spider-Man and the Punisher.

New Mutants #98 (1991) Well here it is. The Holy Grail. Only fours years into his professional career, Rob hits on a character that will forever change his career and the Marvel character landscape. The cover alone has been paid respect to so many times throughout the years. Rob Liefeld introduced the world to Deadpool and Marvel had a character for the ages. Not much can be said about this comic and character that hasn’t been said already, but Rob is officially a superstar now.

X-Force #1 (1991) This comic was ridiculously hot back in the early 90’s. Too many copies released prevented it from gaining any substantial aftermarket heat. Rob pencils/inks and cover art. Many collectors these days go after the bagged issue with the Deadpool trading card. Claiming it’s an early appearance of Deadpool. It’s a card. Seriously, it’s a card, not a comic appearance.

Deadpool #1 (2008) Variant cover art.

Spawn #196 (2010) Collaborates with Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo; interior art.

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 3)

This month I am smashing together a selection of comics I believe are worth buying at cheap prices if you can find them.  As always suggestions are appreciated and I will attempt to answer any questions or make any necessary revisions.

Like any investments comics represent a risk if you are looking to resell for profit.  Read the disclaimer under Hot Picks if you need further information.

 

2000 A.D. 377 ( First Judge Fargo )

347577-19752-126846-1-2000-a-d

Here’s a way they can show Karl Urban’s face in a Dredd sequel and give the legendary Judge an origin within a sequel.  All they need to do is cinematically un- retconn the retconn of Judge Fargo’s face as show in this issue.  Fargo and Dredd’s DNA are the same.  As fans know it just ain’t cool to show Dredd’s face.  This is the only time it was done.

Essential Sandman 4

This hard to find reprint of Lucifer’s first has yet to make a blip on collector’s radars.  When it becomes clear that Sandman 4 is out of reach in both availability and price this one should rise in value.

Essential_Vertigo_-_Sandman_4

Notable addition:

848229

Youngblood 3 ( First appearance of Supreme )

So the infamous creator of Deadpool has recently teased a Supreme film on Twitter. It appears that studios are interested in another of his creations.  This overprinted issue features Supreme’s first appearance.  As we have learned from NM 98, overprinting doesn’t seem to matter in the marketplace if the character is in demand.

afec4cb9-3670-4b76-a87b-f460a00d39d3_tn

Notable additions:

The Moore issue has many reprints that are more rare than the reg edition I have pictured below.

indeximagesd

GLA 1 ( 2nd Squirrel Girl )

Recently her first appearance has been quietly selling for decent money on Ebay.  She’s a fan favorite with few first appearances.  2nd appearances are all the rage right now so here is hers.

2nd squirrel girl

Marvel Graphic Novel 18 ( First Agent Dooley )

Marvel_Graphic_Novel_Vol_1_18

One of my favorite actors, Shea Whigham has been cast to play this obscure S.H.I.E.L.D  agent in the upcoming Agent Carter series.  To date this is his only appearance and it’s a tough one to find.

ASM 685b ( Fredzilla appearance )

Big Hero 6 alert!  Characters from the upcoming film have few appearances outside of the mini.  This is one and it’s a difficult variant to track down.

3548529-685-variant fredzilla

Star Wars Tales 4 ( First Ben Skywalker )

As the new film release approaches I will be randomly mentioning key issues that have had some movement on the back issue marketplace.  To my knowledge this is Ben’s first and only.

SWT 4 first ben skywalker

Here is some additional Deadpool speculation.  Supporting characters can drive up prices ( See X-Force 2 ).  These two guys are popular amongst Deadpool readers but there is no guarantee that they will ever be in the film.

Cable & Deadpool 38 ( First Bob Agent of Hydra! )

Comics & Cinema – The Wish List

Comics & Cinema heads your way this week with a wish list. What comics do you want to see on the big screen? Check inside for some outside the box picks….

Original Content Published By InvestComics for Project Fanboy 10-02-09 (www.projectfanboy.com)

Click on any of the comics to buy/bid on Ebay right now!

Welcome to another edition of Comics & Cinema. This week we’re going to focus on my wish list. Maybe you’ll agree with some of my wishes, maybe you won’t, but let’s all have fun with the fantasy of maybe one day seeing ‘your’ wish comic hero/villain on the silver screen. To break it down in some sought of order instead of total chaos, I’m going to break down by company and give you some key issues or first appearances within the article. So let’s all start daydreaming with the first of the ‘Big 2′ companies…..

 

 

marvellogo.gifMarvel – Is there a better product on the market today for Hollywood? Probably not and the Exec’s feel this way too. Thing is, DC would have some serious fire power too if they’d just get going already! Don’t get me started with DC again.

So with the usual suspects getting tossed around every day like Deadpool or Venom, we all need to take a step back and look at the library that Marvel has to offer. We all understand that Thor is probably going to be a sick film. The Avengers will be epic. Yes Marvel has their ducks in a row and yes fans will enjoy these films greatly. Let us remember though, this article is not for the mainstream right now; it’s about thinking outside the box a bit and daydreaming. 

Iron Man 55 InvestComics

Astonishing Tales 25 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

The first Marvel character I’d love to see hit the screen would be Thanos. Let’s get that Silver Surfer movie going and introduce this guy, thus spinning him off into his own solo movie. Think about this a minute. Marvel has spent the last couple of years absolutely killing the market with everything Cosmic from Annihilation to the War of Kings. Fans are eating this stuff up. It’s storytelling at its best here folks, that’s why it’s doing so well. A List of Cosmic heroes that could appear on film…..Warlock, Drax, Guardians of The Galaxy, Quasar, Terrax and Captain Marvel!!  With that said where is the epic Marvel ‘Space’ movie?  The Cosmo’s await their turn on the silver screen and a Thanos flick would be a choice that would be a hand down slam dunk. Thanos first appeared in the original Iron Man series in 1973 and will cost you about $300. This is a comic that is well worth the 300 bills collectors. If, a big if here Thanos ever got a green light to appear on screen, this comic triples in value. If he doesn’t get the screen time, this comic will still increase in value just at a slower pace. Thanos is a favorite among fans and Iron Man #55 will always be sought after.

We go from the Cosmo’s to flat out action Sci-Fi with Deathlok. Yes there has been rumblings about this guy, but let’s get it done! This in my opinion would be another big success. This movie needs to be done as the same feel as the Blade Runner. It needs to be dark and edgy. It needs to feel dirty and grimy. The movie needs to take us on the journey of darkness that Colonel Luther Manning experiences through the army to his demise to the guinea pig that he becomes. The pig becomes a Cyborg killing machine. Anyone remember that cool movie with Claude Van Damme and d Dolph Lundren called Universal Solider? Deathlok along the lines of that, but with more gloom would make for a fun time…..for us that is, not Luther. Deathlok’s first appearance is in Astonishing Tales #25, it comes in at a mere $70 in VF and is also George Perez’ first professional work ever. If you don’t know who George is, stop reading this and go Google him. A first appearance 1974 Bronze Age, first George Perez work for $70?? This movie needs to be made and this comic needs to be in your collection. Nuff said.

Werewolf By Night 32 InvestComics

Sentry 1 InvestComics

My last two comics from my Marvel wish list are 2 characters that Marvel blatantly ripped off of DC, but perfected them for the movie screen. Understanding that Batman translated extremely well to screen (Michael Keaton/Christian Bale) Marvel has a character in their arsenal that would be unbelievable if ever captured on screen. DC has their Dark Knight and Marvel has their White Knight….Moon Knight. First appearing in Werewolf By Night #32, this is another one of those Bronze Age comics that is way undervalued and is a great buy right now. Moon Knight’s first appearance could be picked up for $100 these days in some markets. That is an absolute ridiculous buy. When the new Vengeance of Moon Knight title came out and sold out quickly, it’s saying that Marvel fans want to see this dude in action. Taking a look at InvestComics Hot Picks from 9-30-09 (http://www.investcomics.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=682&Itemid=35) one could see that Moon Knight is on the top of the wish list. The Hot Picks for that week also gives a bit more insight on the reason or what to look at as far as the Moon Knight movie. Marvel would score a huge hit with this one if ever made in the Batman lore. So the last character on the movie wish list is actually featured on the Hot Picks this week, on the same cover as Moon Knight! Yes this is 100% pure coincidence; Sentry needs to get on Marvel’s movie radar. Marvel’s answer to DC’s Superman would make for some great storytelling as well as a big ‘up yours’ from Marvel if they could pull off the Superman movie DC should have done. Yes Sentry is a completely different character is so many ways, but the similarities are there as well. While I could go through them, one of the most glaring similarities is the ‘S’ on the costume. While Superman’s ‘S’ is totally iconic (we all know, so please Superman fans, sit down chill), Sentry brings some new blood into the whole mystic alien from another planet, superpower dude. Sentry is Marvel’s Superman as Moon Knight is Marvel’s Batman. These two would simply blow away movie goers because of the fact that Marvel always brings a human side to their characters that the average person relates to. Somehow Marvel would make The Sentry a bit human or make you understand his struggles. Did anyone feel this way in the last Superman movie? Superman II with Christopher Reeves, yes now that was the greatest Superman movie ever made!

Green Lantern 141 InvestComics

dclogo.gifSpeaking of Superman, let’s move over to DC. We have all heard by now about the new ‘DC Entertainment ‘deal. DC is anteing up and it’s a win/win for everyone. Comic book fans have much to look forward to in the coming years…hopefully. Just like Marvel the usual suspects line up at the door with the mention of a DC movie. Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Shazam, Flash, etc. Again I will focus on characters that should get some consideration. Omega Men would be an unusual pick, but would be a great sci-fi flick, first appearing in Green lantern #141 this extraterrestrial superhero team is a team with different aliens, different attitudes, personalities and abilities. What more is there to need for a hit movie here? Maybe a ‘Pixar’ type animated movie is in order here? Who knows, bottom line Omega Men would be a good sci-fi movie! 

Shazam 1 InvestComics

Speaking of Shazam earlier as being one of the usual suspects, how about a Black Adam film instead? Total bad as* Black Adam could be a complete villain film where the villain just whoop’s everyone’s butt. When was the last time any movie goers got to see a bad guy win? Why not set up a series of movies where Black Adam rises to power and meets up with Shazam in the third movie, where ‘finally’ our ‘hero’ wins. It would set a different tone in the movie industry where the villain for a couple of movies is running the table. Get his reintroduction into the DC Universe in Shazam: The New Beginning #1 (1987 – Post Crisis) at $3.

New Teen Titans 2 InvestComics

DC has an assassin that pre-dates Marvel’s Deadpool and would give the Merc with the mouth a huge run for his money. Slade Wilson A.K.A Deathstroke, DC elite assassin is an excellent choice for a comic book movie. Much like Black Adam, this sometimes anti-hero is just an entirely different animal when it comes to the rest of the DC Universe in many ways. Deathstroke in a movie that goes along a vibe of ‘Bourne Identity’ or even ‘Point of No Return’ would be box office gold. Get Slade’s first appearance in The New Teen Titans #2 from 1980 for around $80. An undervalued comic, get it now.

Tales of The Teen Titans 44 InvestComics

DC has done so well with the Christian Bale Batman movies; why not go with a Nightwing movie? This character is one of DC’s most underrated and messed up.Nightwing has huge potential but just simply is not used right or cannot get him of the right track. A would be dark edge film for such a character that has so many questions, doubts, anger, violent streaks needs to get on film! The best part, he could constantly bring up how bitter he is towards Batman and eventually have a battle cameo of Batman in the Nightwing movie! Fanboys would eat this up, including me. Get Nightwing’s first look in Tales of The Teen Titans #44 (1984) for only $4. Only $4 you say? Yes, it was the 80’s folks and speculation existed at a fever pace thus mass production ensued. So the value of this first appearance should be more, but supply exceeds demand here.

imagelogo.gifImage Comics has only 1 character that would translate nicely to screen in my opinion. Getting away from the Invincible or Youngblood or Wilcats, one of my favorite characters out of the Image Universe library is Dale Keown’s ‘Pitt’. The Pitt has all the makings of a hit film within the structure of the character base. The Pitt is a monstrous alien looking creature with claws, fangs and a severe aggression problem. Then you have the little boy Timmy. Timmy is Pitt’s genetic equal in some ways and serves as the ‘Elliot’ if you will. For all of you who are saying ‘Who’s Elliot?’ he’s the little boy from E.T. If you are now saying, ‘who’s E.T.?’ stop reading and go to bed. The Pitt has similarities to the Hulk as far as the character structure goes, which was proven in the Image/Marvel crossover in 1996. Dale Keown has done a lot of Hulk work for Marvel, then the Pitt for Image, so it was only a natural chain of events to occur for Dale to draw these two together in the same comic. The Pitt first appeared in rob Liefeld’s Youngblood #4 in 1992. This comic in its mass production could probably be found in some 50 cent long boxes at some conventions or your local comic shop. Wouldn’t it be fun to see Image one up Marvel to show them how a Hulk movie should be done?

Badger 1 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

idwlogo.gifAn Image hero that used to be on board would have been a second choice for an Image Comic movie, but is now with IDW. He’s was originally from the defunct Capital Comics line. His name is Badger. Only a few things need to be known about this guy to understand why it would indeed be a successful movie. First and foremost, he’s a master of the martial arts. Second, he’s a Vietnam vet and third Badger has a multiple personality disorder. What fun! IDW (Hollywood, whoever here) would have multiple angles here. You’d have the excellent fighter dude, the war hero and a hero that suffers from being different people. Think Chuck Norris meets Me, Myself and Irene. Yes this would be a hoot! Check out Badger’s first appearance from 1983 in Badger #1, a cheap comic that would have some upside if the character was put into a more predominant role in some sort of hero/villain universe. Badger would be an entertaining movie with lots of jokes and with some serious as* kicking.

Well that’s about it for my comic book movie list. Do know that my list changes on a daily basis! These are just a few that came to my head as a thought if someone were to ask ‘what comic movie do you want to see made?’ There are thousands of characters and over 70 years to choose from. What would be your choices? Think of some outside the box and we’ll talk about them right here on Project Fanboy.

See you all soon and remember to turn off your cell phone when reading this article. We need quiet in this theater.


Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.
