Review – Exodus The Life After #3

Exodus The Life After #3 – Click to Buy/Bid

EXODUS: THE LIFE AFTER #3
Oni Press
Writer: Joshua Hale Fialkov
Art/Cover Art: Gabo

(Click on the comic cover or red link to buy/bid from ALL available Ebay sellers)

This is the most absurd premise I have seen yet,  God reveals the secrets of the Universe to Earnest Hemingway.

I love it.  I want more,  I want to go back to the beginning and see where this little gem of a comic came from.  Stories like this one are why I got into storytelling.  I simply can’t tell you how much I loved this.  This art style by Gabo, puts you in the characters shoes, I could see the story as if I were Earnest Hemingway, and the scary part, is I really got the perspective of the character of God in this story too.  It was hypnotically told and expertly revealed.  Fialkov has a writing style that reminded me of Stanislav Lem in this one, he contrasted absurd circumstances with profoundly deep points of view that few of us ever consider.  This is comedic literature in the comics medium at it’s best!

Bravo!  Now, if you are offended easily, best steer clear, but if you are into good dialogue, and have a strong sense of Irony, you may be pleasantly tickled by this entertaining little collection of coloured paper.

Review – Shaft Imitation of Life #1

Shaft-Imitation-01-Cov-A-Clarke

Shaft Imitation of Life #1 – Click to Buy/Bid

Shaft: Imitation of Life #1
Published by Dynamite
Created by Ernest Tidyman
Written and lettered by David Walker
Illustrated by Dietrich Smith
Coloured by Alex Guimares
Cover art by Mathew clark and Vincius Andrade

(Click on the comic cover or red link to buy/bid from ALL available Ebay sellers)

“Who’s the black private dick
That’s a sex machine to all the chicks?
(Shaft!)
You’re damn right
Who is the man
That would risk his neck for his brother man?
(Shaft!)
Can ya dig it?
Who’s the cat that won’t cop out
When there’s danger all about
(Shaft!)
Right on
You see this cat Shaft is a bad mother
(Shut your mouth)…”
-Isaac Hayes-  Shaft

…But I’m talking ‘bout Shaft, The Comic; new on the shelves from Dynamite, and this book continues the legacy full throttle!  I have to admit I was a little Skeptical when I opened this one up. I missed David Walkers previous instalment of Shaft: A complicated man, so for me this had a lot to live up to, but the Creative team of David Walker (Army of Dr. Moreau, Shaft: a Complicated Man)  and Dietrich Smith (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo) Knocked this title into the bleachers!

The artwork is clean and clear, Smith has a good foundation and a super crisp storytelling style, However, I would have liked to have seen him take a few more risks and add a bit more exaggeration and dynamism into the poses he chose, but you can see this guy is on his way up, and is definitely one to watch!  David Walkers’ narrative technique, is, well, sublime. I really loved the dual narrative he had going, with John Shaft’s “voice over” it was awesome to really get into the head of this “Complicated man” and see a side of the character that was only slightly implied in the films.  I loved how this story took Shaft into a place I never really expected to see him go, it explores some experimental ground, and has a really intriguing “save the cat moment”.  The pacing is smooth and very cinematic- it flowed so well I read it twice. And one interesting point to note, is that he also did the lettering, so his bubble placement added to the effect of this, my eyes danced right through it to the end. That being said, I’m used to seeing more explosive cliffhanger’s at the end, but this is the sort of comic that you keep thinking about after you put it down, and like any good mystery you’ll want to know what happens next.

Capes 1

IC 100 Club Pick – Capes #1 (2003) – Click to Buy Now

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!

This week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Capes #1 (Image Comics 2003). By now just about everyone knows what this comic holds. Especially Walking Dead fans. For those of you who don’t know, here it is. The Walking Dead #1 comic came out in October of 2003. Capes #1 came out one month prior. In the Capes #1 comic contained a 5 page preview of The Walking Dead #1. So in essences, the first Walking Dead to ever see print was Capes #1, not The Walking Dead #1. So what does this mean exactly? Well not much to the collectors (slab/graders) market because it’s not recognized as THE first appearance of this title. Why is that you ask? No idea. Sometimes the grading companies are very funny with what is what, but the truth and fact is that The Walking Dead comic first appeared in Cape #1, regardless if it was only 5 pages. It predates the first issue, end of story. It’s not an image, a teaser, a blurb, a mention, an ad, no it’s the actual first five pages of The Walking Dead before the number one issue came out. So with that, if you’re a true Walking Dead fan and think you may want a collectible, this is it. $100 and free shipping.

InvestComics already covered the comic we’re about to write about for speculators on the InvestComics Facebook page a while ago, but we’ll go over it here for those who missed any of it. Marvel releases Deadpool Mercs For Money #1 this Wednesday. In this new series fans will get look at the team made up of; Foolkiller, Stingray, Solo, Massacre, Terror, and Slapstick. ALL of these characters have the potential of blowing up. Deadpool can jump-start any one of these characters to a new life. Maybe their new journey starts here? Maybe not, but all of these characters’ first appearances are very affordable, so why wouldn’t a speculator take a chance here and buy some cool comics at affordable pricing? Great stories and potential hot commodities await you. Read comics……Invest wisely!

Let’s start with the team itself. The Mercs for Money all appeared together for the first time in Deadpool Vol 4 #1 (2015).

Foolkiller’s very first appearance was in Man-Thing #3 (1974). Although an awesome book, we look to the third Foolkiller character because that’s the one on this particular team. Kurt Gerhardt (Foolkiller 3) first appeared in Foolkiller #1 (1990). This Foolkiller 10 issue series was hot for a minute, but then no more. These days however, if he catches on, no telling what could happen. The same goes for all of these second rate comic characters.
The character Terror first appeared in the 1941, used very sparingly, but we’re going to fast forward a bit to 1988 to St. George #2 from Epic Comics (Marvel Comics imprint). Here we have the Terror character being used in today’s modern era. An obscure odd title you’d probably be hard pressed to find, but a book needed in your collection. The great Klaus Janson pencils this first appearance.
Stingray first appearance was in The Sub Mariner #19 (1969). Maybe an appearance in the Sub-Mariner movie if that ever gets off the ground.
Also debuting in a 19th issue was Solo. He first appeared in Web of Spider-Man #19 (1986). Marc Silvestri pencils this issue. This comic is also the debut of Humbug.
Massacre first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #655 (2011).
Finally, there is Marvel’s answer to the Joker. His name is Slapstick. His first appearance was in Slapstick #1 (1992). Imagine if Marvel ever made this third rate character into something that rivaled the Joker. Granted, nothing Marvel can ever do to get close to an equivalent Joker type character, but Disney is capable of doing whatever the hell they please, so never doubt them. So any fanboy reading this, relax. We’re not saying Marvel will ever rival the Joker type character, just a fantasy thought process. Speculators should get on this just in case though. Never know!

Review – Conan the Avenger #22

Conan the Avenger #22 (Dark Horse Comics)
Writer:Fred Van Lente

Conan the Avenger #22 – Click to Buy/Bid

Robert E. Howards’ stories sure have legs, and Conan has entertained us in novels and film, animations and comics for quite some time now.  Most people are only familiar with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of the character, but there most certainly is more. The last time I read a Conan comic Roy Thomas was writing it and the character was still being published by Marvel.

Fred van Lente knows that every comic could be a readers first, as was the case for me with this one. This issue is just an example of damn good storytelling, and good comics craft. The book is well paced, and beautifully drawn by Brian Ching. Most notably is a splash page on pages 4 and 5 of a harem of lovely ladies that I am sure Mr. Ching took no smaller pleasure in drawing than I did in viewing.  The action is well done, with verve and great posing. The story is told in a third person narrative in the form of a letter warning of danger, revealing the underlying situation and moves the plot forward expertly and with beautiful language. I love seeing a creator employ the unique tools of the comics medium, and Van Lente uses a great dual narrative here, juxtaposing a beautiful visual story that goes between the macro plot of the current arc, and the micro story of this issue tying it all up expertly at the end.  I have not read other issues in this series, but this book will be going into my shopping cart on a regular basis from now on. If you love the comics form and good story you won’t want to take your eyes off this creative team, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too.

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!

This week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Shazam #1 (1973) graded 9.0. This beauty is only $100 plus free shipping. The first appearance of the Marvel Family in the DC Universe and the origin retold. With so much talk of a Shazam movie and the rumors dying down because nothing is coming to fruition, the comic price has come down a bit. Perfect time to buy. Maybe press this book and up the grade a bit? Movie or no movie, this comic at this grade, at this price is a good buy. 

Valiant Entertainment gets the top slot this week. The Hot Pick of the week with Faith #1. Written by Jody Houser, art from Francis Portela and Marguerite Sauvage. Check out the InvestComics review of this comic right HERE. It received a great review from our reviewer Ian Powers and we’re telling you that Faith #1 will be a hit. It’s already sold out at the distributor level with a second print arriving on the same day as the first print! Already covered by multiple media source outlets, the comic will be a huge hit for Valiant. Our reviewer says (and he’s a film director) that the Faith character could easily find her way to a live medium. We truly partake in that opinion. Pick up the first print of Faith #1 on Wednesday. If not lucky enough, grab a second print. If not lucky enough, a third print is probably not that far behind.
A few variants will accompany this release on Wednesday. The Clayton Henry CGC graded 9.8 variant is an eye catcher for sure! 
As many of you already may know and some don’t, Faith was originally the character Zephyr. Zephyr first appeared way back in 1992’s Harbinger #1 (Valiant). As long as the Faith character catches on, so will the Harbinger #1 comic. Lots of copies of this comic available on Ebay.

Bloodshot Reborn #10 (Valiant) will begin a new story arc. Bloodshot is Analog Man! The regular and penciled variant covers are fantastic. The Jeff Lemire cover is quite awesome as well. A must read/get!

InvestComics has been on top of Monstress since its inception a few months ago. We tell you now that Monstress #3 will release this week. Keep on top of this series. Good read and potential super hit when word really spreads about this comic.

DC begins to bank on the Suicide Squad movie coming out in August with the release of Suicide Squad Most Wanted Deadshot Katana #1. By the time July rolls around, the last issue of this 6 issue mini will be out. An early start, but ending a month before the movie release. We’re quite sure we’ll see lots more Suicide Squad comics, variants, appearances before then too.

Superman Lois and Clark #4 will gives readers a better understanding as to why Lois gave Clark the lovely black Superman costume. Why Lois? Why? Do tell us.
A new group will be introduced in We Are Robin #8. The Jokers are their name and speculation is our game! Ah see what we did? We rhymed. We’re super hip. Lee Bermejo provides the great Joker cover with the Jokers. The DC Hot Pick of the week!

We’re not quite sure why all of the hoopla when the cover of All-New All-Different Avengers #4 was revealed a while back. Captain America and Thor are kissing…..so? Now if it were the original characters, that may be a bit different, and we still wouldn’t even care then either, but these two? What’s the big deal here? Fanboys either love it or hate it. What side are you on? Civil War! Wait, wait wrong wrong, all wrong.

The Mike Deodato Jr. Old Man Logan #1 variant is the best of all the covers. At $25, it’s a bit steep though.

Cosmic Times and Kevin LaPorte team up for a one shot; Scales Of Time #1.

Once again, InvestComics had the collector from the start with another series that keeps selling out. Henchgirl #4 is sold out. That marks the fourth sellout in a row. Henchgirl has unofficially caught on to a fanbase. And the number one issue (which we told you about) actually has a short print run. 
Check out these new indie titles coming this Wednesday; Strayer #1 (After-Shock Comics), Cry Havoc #1 (Image), and Victorie City #1 (IDW).

Greetings and salutations Comic Investors/readers, this is my first review so I hope I can install some faith in you; in that vein I’ll be reviewing  Valiants “FAITH” Episode 1,  FAITH BEGINS, Written by star on the rise Jody Houser (Ophan Black) with visuals provided by an amazing pair of artists Francis Portela (Green Lantern)  and Marguerite Sauvage (DC Comics Bombshells)

This is another first for me as I have never opened a Valiant comic before, but that is set to change as I was not disappointed with this little program.  The character Faith Herbert, the hero known as Zephyr started her super hero career in one of Valiants first titles Harbinger, since then she has become a fan favourite as a proud plus size heroine who has proven herself now worthy of a solo title.

Faith #1 hooks right into the action as a pair of would be Psiots escape from the facility that creates these enhanced humans, this point ties up nicely with a well crafted cliff hanger at the end.

The bulk of the first issue expertly shows Faiths new life after leaving her super hero family on the East coast, making a new life in L.A. as a fanboy website blogger. The pacing is very well done, and the writer gets us invested in Faiths character right up front,  The story uses a nice narration in the form of Faiths 1st person voice over.  It’s a nice entry point to the character for a new reader like me who had no exposure to the character ever before, and a great entry point into Valiant.  the artists do a fun little trick of contrasting the real world art style by Francis Portela with Faiths fantasies, penciled by Marguerite Sauvage, which involves a strange obsession with a Chris Hemsworth/Chris Evans highbrid celebrity fantasy.  I would have liked to have perhaps seen more of a contrast in the color for this, but it gets the job done. The story itself is a great mix of action, humour and real world slice of life that we see more often in prime time television.  This comic could easily be picked up by a television or film producer for development and would certainly be a fun contrast to such shows as Supergirl or the hard edged Jessica Jones.  I could picture an actress like Rebel Wilson bringing a character like this to life very easily.  With the market hungry for expandable IP’s as it is, and a top notch creative team like Houser, Portela and Sauvage on this one, don’t be surprised if this title turns into a big thing fast.

Review – Hangman #2

The Hangman 2

The Hangman #2 – Click to Buy/Bid

Hangman #2 (Dark Circle Comics)
Script: Frank Tieri
Art: Felix Ruiz, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Rachel Deering
Cover: Tim Bradstreet
Variant Cover: Mike Huddleston

(Click the Red link(s) or cover(s) to Buy/Bid from all available sellers on Ebay)

Winter may not be as cold as expected, but Comics veterans Frank Tieri (Wolverine, Batman, Red Sonja: The Black Tower”) and Felix Ruiz (“Wolverine: MAX, Halo) have clocked in the second instalment of their bone chilling new revival of “The Hangman,” at Archie Comics’ Dark Circle imprint to keep you cringing till spring.  First off, you should know, this book is F*&*ing Disturbing!  Which is exactly why I think I found a new book to follow, life needs a little disturbing fiction to give us an edge, and theres nothing like a spirit of vengeance sanctioned by heaven and beset upon the earth by the devil himself to give you a little guidance on which paths not to follow in life. So, if you like to have trouble sleeping at night, then pick this one up.

Frank Tieri does an amazing job introducing us to main character and anti-hero Mike Minetta.  Don’t worry if you missed issue #1,  newcomers will pick up the key info fast as Mike wakes up in Hell and comes face to face with all the people he’s sent there before him, finally to be made an offer he can’t refuse by Ol’ Scratch , himself. Harrowingly rendered by comics great Felix Ruiz, this is one book that just sticks to your brain cells.  Theres been, of late, a major trend in media, film and television with stories of reckoning with the lord of the abyss; I wouldn’t be surprised if this story turns out to get some extra attention, so invest some of your time and read The Hangman #2, it won’t disappoint.

Ted McKeever, a main staple within the comic industry has been around since 1987. A tremendous talent with many books under his belt as well as industry stories apparently. This Wednesday fans get treated to a self created/character title called Pencil Head #1 from Image Comics. The comic is a semi-biography based on the comic book industry from Ted’s view. Some awesome stories to read in here we’re sure! InvestComics has been around for 10+ years and boy do we have some stories to tell too. Maybe someday……someday.
Symmetry #1 (Image Comics) received a nice welcome, now the hard part. Keeping the fanbase around after Symmetry #2. Check out the second issue this week. We have faith you’ll be looking for issue #3.

Who knows if Marvel will ever really get to that Captain Marvel movie in 2018. With a flop or two, the comic book movie landscape will change dramatically. You do know this will eventually happen right? It’s inevitable, there will be failure to some degree someday. If Disney hits a bad spot and then another bad spot, the game will change in a big way. Even after the first bump in the road, Disney will pump the breaks big time. Do not be naive to the fact that comic book movies will be around forever. Don’t get us wrong here either, comic book movies will be around for a while, for years to come, but to what capacity is the question.
IF Marvel (Disney) ever makes it far enough to get Carol Danvers going, it’ll be the first major female comic character to ever have a huge budget behind them to succeed. Don’t bring up Catwoman or Supergirl or Elektra, you know what we are saying. What Marvel is doing as far as their continuing and connecting movies is cinematic history. Never been done before. A Captain Marvel movie will be made to succeed (obviously). Succeed big while grabbing the young girls and teenage girls as new Marvel’ette’s. Disney knows what they are doing, they really really hope to get to 2018 with no bumps in the road. There is an untapped comic book audience that they will market. They’ll kill. Like they always do.
Now that we have your attention, let’s get back to Carol Danvers comic books. Carol Danvers first appearance was in Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) as Ms. Marvel. Her first appearance as Captain Marvel was in Captain Marvel #1 (2012). Then you have the first Carol Danvers in Avenging Spider-Man #9 (2012) as Carol Danvers, but she’s on the cover as Captain Marvel? It’s a bit confusing the way some of these grading companies do things, but we just follow along like everyone else. Anyway, these comics should find a home in your collection sooner rather than later. If we get to 2018 with no issues and Disney is full steam ahead, these comics will be sitting in a different place monetarily. Major upside potential here. Major.
Oh yes almost forgot, there’s Captain Marvel #1 coming out this Wednesday. Check that out too.

We really wish the Deadpool movie would come out already. Every week fans have to endure another onslaught of Deadpool variants or the character appearing on random covers. We get it Marvel, we really do. Stop already. So with that said, Deadpool #6 will introduce fans to Deadpool 2099. And a big surprise here, ready for it…? Ready?…..the new character is a female. You’re surprised right?! Right?! No you’re not. Neither are we!
And as long as we’re on topic with the female character, how about checking out the New Avengers #5 this week? The introduction of a “new” Avengers team will make their first appearance. By “new”, we mean new characters; Iron Mariner, King Hulk, Marvel Woman, Collapsar, and Captain America. By the looks of it, Captain America, Iron Mariner, and Marvel Woman (obviously) are all female. Interesting no? We dig it. They look awesome.

There’s a very annoying unnecessary number one issue coming out on Wednesday. Silver Surfer #1. Written by Dan Slott and art by Mike Allred. What’s so irritating about this one may ask. The same writer and artist that started Silver Surfer #1 from 2014 went 15 issues and ended their run last month(?) and will be starting anew with a number one issue. Why not just continue with issue #16 THIS month? It makes no sense really. None. The only obvious reason would be to sell more comics by slapping the number ONE on the cover. It’s ridiculous really. We’re quite sure Dan and Mike will provide tremendous entertainment, but this starting from a new number one stuff is flat out silly. Yep, we said it.

Mr. Bloom seems to be causing all kinds of problems for Batman in Batman #48. Not too sure if this story is in fact leading to the final Synder/Capullo Batman book (number 50). Probably so, but an end of an era is coming for the best creative team on Batman in years.

Dynamite Entertainment makes the Hot Picks article this week with Devolution #1. Rick Remender writes and a Jae Lee cover. That’s enough in itself to check this out.
Pathfinder Hollow Mountain #3 paying homage to the iconic cover from 1958’s Adventure Comics #247 by Stan Kaye, Ira Schapp, and Curt Swan. This comic is the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
451 Media Group continues to sell out every week. Sunflower #1 and #2 sold out, look for Sunflower #3 (with lots of sunflowers on the cover) to possibly continue the trend.

Harley Quinn Checklist

Batman Harley Quinn

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – First DC Universe appearance in continuity – Click to Buy/Bid

Batman Adventures #12

Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – First ever appearance of Harley Quinn – Click to Buy/Bid

Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – The first appearance of Harley Quinn. This comic features the “animated” version of Harley and not the actual “continuity” Harley Quinn” within the DC Universe. There are approximately 14+ or so books before she ever appeared within the confines of the actual DC Universe. Here are some of those early appearances (listed below).

Batman Adventures: Mad Love #1 (1994) – Second “non-continuity” Harley appearance.

Batman Adventures Annual #1 (1994) – Third appearance and legend John Byrne actually pencils a Harley Quinn story here. How great is that???!!

Batman Adventures #28 (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #1 (1995)

Batman Adventures: Holiday Special (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #8 (1996)

Batman and Superman Adventures: Worlds Finest (1997)

Batman and Robin Adventures #17 (1997)

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

Batman Chronicles Gallery #1 (1997) – Harley made an appearance in the regular DC Universe with a pinup in this comic before the next book listed here.

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – Here is the first official Harley Quinn entry (appearance) into the DC Universe. Also an origin issue. A modern day classic cover; Alex Ross.

Batman No Mans Land Gallery #1 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance is very much like her first. In a gallery book. So this means that this comic is not really recognized as her second appearance in the DC Universe, very much like her first appearance.

Batman #570 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance. Many collectors are hoarding these away for a future gauntlet throw down to maximize their potential earnings. Not an easy book to get.

Detective Comics #737 (1999) – The third appearance of Harley Quinn.

Action Comics #765 (2000) – Harley steps out of a Batman comic universe for the first time. This comic is also the first time she appears in the same book as Superman. A definite collectors item here and it’s an affordable book too!

Harley Quinn #1 (2000) – 7 years after her debut into the comic book world, Harley finally gets her own title.

Wonder Woman #164 (2001) – Harley in the same comic as Wonder Woman for the first time. A ridiculously gorgeous Adam Hughes cover as well.

Batman 613

Batman #613 – Click to Buy/Bid

Harley Quinn #4 (2001) – First appearance of the Quinntets.

Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War #1 (2001) – This comic not only possess a great story, but it also marks the first time Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti get their creative Quinn popped. Amanda and Jimmy are THE go-to when it comes to Harley Quinn and this is their first work on the character.

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

Jokers Last Laugh Secret Files #1 (2001) – A couple of months later, Amanda and Jimmy do a backup story in this book. The beginnings of the Quinn/Conner/Palmiotti threesome. A Threesome that will become a monthly romp in about 13 years.

Batman #613 (2003) – During Jim Lee’s epic Batman run, he penciled Harley into the Hush story line. He got her right on the cover too. When a talent like Jim Lee draws any character for the first time, it’s time to take notice.

Harley Quinn #38 (2004) – Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard pencils the final issue of Harley’s first comic book run. Nice way to go out right? With Charlie at the helm and a low print run, this makes for an attractive comic.

Suicide Squad #1 (2011) – This comic is essentially Harley’s first appearance “post Flashpoint” and the character in the movie will be in direct correlation to THIS particular time frame. Hence the high mark selling points in the aftermarket. Her second appearance came a week later in Batman #1 (2011).

Suicide Squad #6 (2012) – The origin of Harley Quinn. The first of two parts. Two major comics for ANY Quinn collector. Great cover too.

Suicide Squad #7 (2012) The origin of Harley Quinn concludes. Another stellar cover.

Bloodshot 6

IC 100 Club Pick – Bloodshot #6 – First appearance of Ninjak – Click to Buy it Now

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!

This week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Bloodshot #6 (1993) graded 9.8. This comic is the first appearance of Ninjak. Valiant Entertainment is on the cusp of breaking loose within the film industry. Is it possible we will see Ninjak make an appearance? Maybe. If so, here’s a book to grab for $100 with free shipping.

Creators Brendan Fletcher, Dustin Nguyen and a host of others usher in a new beginning for the Gotham Academy. Check out Gotham Academy #14 as the book starts its “Yearbook” story line.

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

The crossover with Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seems to have been receptive. Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2 brings together Shredder and the Penguin. As if that wasn’t enough to bring you back, Kevin Eastman does another variant.

Although the Joker’s Daughter has appeared in the previous 2 issues of Red Hood Arsenal, she gets the front cover this week on Red Hood Arsenal #8. It’s been a little while since we’ve seen her grace a cover in an almost solo capacity. With DC using the character a bit more these days, are they gearing up for a mega-push? It’s quite possible. The female hero/villain in comic books is a hot commodity for many comic publishers these days. DC might push for this particular female character to get going. Get Catwoman #23 (2013) and Catwoman #24 (2013) now before it’s way too too late. That is the cameo and first appearance of Joker’s Daughter. Some low rates for these comics on Ebay right now. Get em!

Wonder Woman fans will have a new series to check out this Wednesday. Legend Of Wonder Woman #1 will be a 9 issue mini-series.
DC Comics over the course of the last couple of weeks have been releasing “adult coloring book” variant covers like Starfire #8. Although they do resemble sketch variants, these are ones that DC encourages us “adults” to color on. Why exactly? How many “adults” are really going to do this?  
Speaking of covers, we’re really digging the Robin War #2 incentive cover by Lee Bermejo.

The Walking Dead reaches its 150th issue this week. There are so many variants it’s hard to keep up, but there is one we want to talk about. Besides the ultra cool Ryan Ottley variant cover, Tony Moore contributes a variant. Yes THAT Tony Moore. the co-creator of The Walking Dead. The last time Tony penciled a cover for the regular ongoing Walking Dead series was back in 2005; The Walking Dead #24. The Walking Dead #150 will be an obvious huge seller, but the Tony Moore variant is the prize. Did we mention it’s sold out already? Better get yours if you want one. Oh and one more thing, InvestComics may have a HUGE contest in regards to this comic in the works. Stay tuned to our Facebook page AND our Contest section on the site right HERE. It may happen, it may not, but IF it does, Walking Dead fans will love it!

The new Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 comic will be based on the television series. If you’re a fan of the television series, this comic is for you! If not, this comic is NOT for you! Simple enough right? This series has no chance on the longevity scale at all. The television series will not last as long as Bonanza did and the comic series will succumb before that TV series does eventually. We’re not hating on the series, but it will thin out as most of these types of shows do. Let’s face it, they’re not bringing it like the DC television shows are. Flash, Green Arrow, and Gotham. As we pointed out last week with the random Doctor Strange #4 Deadpool variant, must be some stalled sales going on there to throw Deadpool on a variant like that. Well within the plethora of Agents variants, Mark Bagley provides a Deadpool variant. Very random once again. Very unnecessary, but a great cover nonetheless.

Deadpool also appears on a very funny variant cover from Tom Raney. Check out All-New Wolverine #4. The cover is a take on the Batman slapping Robin meme that floats around all of social media.

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

Another Deadpool variant; Guardians Of The Galaxy #4 shows Deadpool riding on some sort of Mindcraft thingy. If you don’t know what Mindcraft is, Google it. If Marvel ever decides to take on the license of Mindcraft (maybe it already has it? Who knows?), this comic is the first Mindcraft Marvel. Maybe the first Mindcraft deal in all of comics? Haven’t seen other references, so help us out if you have. **(Update – apparently Deadpool is riding an Internet meme called a nyan cat. Thanks to Barry W for clarifying this).

Silk #3 J Scott Campbell variant cover is sold out.

Secret Wars #9 finally arrives. With it arrives a sentimental cover by Sara Pichelli. Peter giving Miles encouraging words.

A new look Falcon debuts in Captain America Sam Wilson #5.

If you’re in the market for an all out “magic” comic book, then IDW’s Gutter Magic #1 is for you. Witness an all out magic war set in New York City. Brought to you by writer Rich Douek and artist Brett Barkley. Great storytelling and great art. This will be a hit for IDW Publishing.

Also from IDW this Wednesday, Luna The Vampire #1. This will be a fun comic to check out.

An original Kickstarter campaign starter becomes a regular monthly title from Dark Horse Comics. Leaving Megalopolis Surviving Megalopolis #1 is written by Gail Simone with pencils by Jim Calafiore. The original concept of the “heroes” in this book stop being good guys and become very bad. Writer Gail Simone will bring us a great tale because she can flat out write. And veteran artist Jim Calafiore is showcasing some of his best work ever. This looks like a great read, a must get.

Burnt Comix #1 from Creature Entertainment is sold out. Heavy Metal sells out Narcopolis Continuum #1 and Chapter House Publishing brings us Spirit Leaves #1.

Swamp Thing 1

Top 5 Pick of the week – Swamp Thing #1 – Click to Buy/Bid

Amazing Spider-Man #611 (2009) – The first appearance by Deadpool in a Spider-Man comic. A fantastic book to own since both of these characters are so popular and are starring in their first monthly team up comic. Furthermore, with the Deadpool character becoming an obvious main staple within the Marvel universe, a first team up comic with these two is an easy decision purchase to make for your collection. And that Young cover is becoming a classic as the years go by.

Spider-Man Deadpool #1 – This is the team up comic many Marvel fans have been clamoring for. It’s going to be a great ongoing title. Wait until they bring the Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool team up into the fray as we are predicting. Wow will this be a huge comic. And the Liefeld variant to go along with that team up? Yes, it’s going to be big. Well, we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but that Gamestop Spider-Man Deadpool variant is creating quite a stir in the aftermarket itself!

Howard The Duck #3 – Speaking of Gwenpool, last week InvestComics gave fans a heads up on this variant. There was some kind of delay in putting these out for sale. Now that they go on sale THIS week, they’re sold out! Good luck finding a copy at your local retailer. Click the link, get it on Ebay.

Doctor Strange Vol 4 #4 – Deadpool wins! Wins the most appearances in the InvestComics Top 5 list that is. Here he is again appearing on a random Doctor Strange variant.

Swamp Thing #1 – Swamp Thing gets another redo. Seems many DC Comics these days are, but that’s a conversation for another time. As said in the InvestComics Hot Picks article, Swamp Thing has always fared well for DC as far as longevity is concerned. This title should be no different then past success with writer Len Wein and artist Kelley Jones at the helm. Get your read on here, this is going to be awesome.
