Buy/Bid – Edge of Venomverse #4

Buy/Bid – Ms. Marvel #21

Buy/Bid – Secret Empire #8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week Marvel released a Banner vs Cho (Hulk vs Hulk for those at home not familiar or following along). This week we receive Jean Grey vs teen Jean Grey in Generations Phoenix & Jean Grey #1. No really, we didn’t make this up. Writer Aaron A and artist R.B. Silva.
Marvel’s Edge of Venomverse #4 will put the focus on Wolvenom. We’ve informed readers/collectors to pick up each one of these comics within this series. A breakout mash-up is bound to happen. That said, can anything be done about these names though? Wolvenom?
Deadpool makes an appearance in Rocket #4. Writer Al Ewing and art by Adam Gorham.
As the Inhumans television show and IMAX mini-movie inches closer, fans will be inundated with new comic stories about this team from Marvel. A bit of overkill as usual, but life does go on. You don’t like it, don’t buy it. Inhumans Once & Future Kings #1 is written by Christopher Priest/Ryan North and pencils by Gustavo Duarte.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
A great way to pop some interest and eyeballs onto a series is to have J. Scott Campbell do a variant cover. A Spidey variant no less. Marvel taps Campbell for the Secret Empire #8 Spidey variant. Expect a quick sellout.
A new Star Wars comic debuts this Wednesday. Star Wars Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO #1. Long title, but almost guaranteed to be another great read. Written by Duane Swierczynski and drawn by Fernando Blanco.
Ms. Marvel #21 could be a first appearance. Let’s all check out this comic.

Buy/Bid – Action Comics #985

Buy/Bid – Azrael #1

Buy/Bid – Detective Comics #962

Buy/Bid – Superman #32

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Detective Comics #962 will bring back a fan fav from the 90’s. Azrael is back with a new look and looking like a bad as*. Expect a new series to spin off for the Azrael character later this year. Azrael first appeared in Batman Sword of Azrael #1 (1992).

‘Mr. Oz makes his final move’ in Action Comics #985. We wait with baited breath to see what that move entails. Mr. Oz first appeared in Superman #32 (2014).
Will Bizarro die? Probably not, but Red Hood and The Outlaws #13 wants us to believe he may.
A new series from writer Tom King (Batman) and artist Mitch Gerads; Mister Miracle #1.

Buy/Bid – Generations #1

Buy/Bid – Cassian & K-2SO #1

A new horror comic from Image Comics; Redlands #1. Writers by Jordie Bellaire(artist)/Vanesa Del Rey
Dynamite Entertainment is piggybacking off of the successful Batman/Shadow team-up mini-series this Wednesday. The Shadow #1 enters its ninth volume, not counting the seventeen one-shots and team-up books. This character was first introduced in 1940’s Shadow Comics #1. A recent graded 6.0 sold for $2400. Not only does this comic carry the first appearance of Shadow, but it also features the first appearance of Doc Savage. A great buy at $2400 here. Now back to the year 2017. The Shadow #1 from Dynamite Entertainment will be written by Simon Spurrier and art by Daniel HDR. Awesome Tyler Kirkman variant cover too (This will make the Best Comic Covers this week!).

Invaders first appearance: Avengers #71 (1969)

There is a glaring Marvel comic (obvious) coming this Wednesday that will be on your radar, but it won’t amount to much in the long run. Let’s explain…….

This week Marvel will give collectors the awesomeness of All New Invaders (2013) #1. Awesomeness is given in the form of six covers including the regular cover on this one. The awesomeness also comes in the form of a $60 incentive variant from John Cassaday. Get this signed and graded (as always, get a 9.8 or higher!), and you’ll have a nice aftermarket party for yourself. With all of the good comes some bad news. Well not bad news, but news and common sense that brings us to a conclusion that the All New Invaders #1 will be a short lived aftermarket party. Besides the numerous restarts that ended early and the constant playing of a bridesmaid everywhere,  all one has to look at is the cover(s) and understand the reasoning behind the “bad” speculation here. The cover(s) reveal the team of Captain America, Winter Solder, Namor, and the original Human Torch. With most of the cinema entries driving the Marvel and DC Comic characters these days, it’s quite easy to see why the Invaders will probably never see the light of day on the big screen. Cap and Solider are already in a film together; probably a onetime deal but Bucky will probably see his own movie years down the line one day. The Human Torch, well he’s tied up with FOX Pictures and they aren’t letting him go to Marvel Studios anytime soon, and last but not least is Namor. Here’s the great thing about Namor, InvestComics called the entire Marvel Cosmic movie deal about 10 years ago and that came to fruition. Marvel is all in with phase III, which includes Dr. Strange, Ant-Man and will probably include Black Panther among others not announced just yet. Want some good news? Back to Namor……Disney has gone by land, space, and is even hitting the mystical world (which Disney loves too!).  Disney also loves…. you guessed it, water! Yes we are a ways a way from seeing a “water phase” from Marvel, but it will probably happen. Imagine the epic filmography/storytelling Marvel Studios can put together here regarding an all water film. You heard it here first (again). I’ve given you a good head start here. Get your Marvel water world in order; you will thank me much later on.

As long as we’re on semi-Avengers talk here, be sure to check out Avengers (2012 5th Series) #25 this week. It’s the intro of the All-New Avengers team and a character bites the dust too.

Marvel’s last entry in this week’s Hot Picks is Empire of the Dead Act One (2013) #1. Another, yes another zombie related comic book. This comic will be brought to you by legendary zombie extraordinary George A. Romero.  Will this equate to aftermarket happiness for the speculator? The numbers say so. Sold out across the board.

Said it before, I’ll say it again. Be wary of the zombie genre.  It is bound to collapse eventually. When it does, I surely hope you are rid of most of your zombie books before it happens because they will be a hard resell.

One of the top speculative comics, if not THE book to pick up this week is Deadly Class (2013) #1. Writer Rick Remender doing the honors here and it looks like a fantastic story ahead as well. Words like assassin, murder, Japan, killing, body count, and dangerous teenagers accompany the Image Comics solicit. It’s sold out; best get your hands on this one.

Here’s a quick list of sold out variants and almost sold out regular cover comics coming at you this Wednesday. Archies Funhouse Double Digest (2013) #1, X-Files Conspiracy Ghostbusters (2014) #1, Bad Ass (2014 Dynamite) #1, Wonderland Asylum (2014) #1, TMNT Utrom Empire (2014) #1, Hacktivist (2014) #1, Scribblenauts Unmasked Crisis Of Imagination (2013) #1, Jack Hammer (2014) #1, Unwritten Apocalypse (2013 Volume 2) #1, and Judge Dredd Mega City Two (2013) #1.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.
