Detective Comics #951 begins a new storyline from writer James TynionIV, ‘League of Shawows’. Art by Christian Duce.
New JLA series begins; Justice League Of America #1, written by Steve Orlando and art by Ivan Reis.
Writer Hope Larson continues the ‘Son of Penguin’ storyline in Batgirl #8. The second appearance of Penguins son; Ethan Cobblepot.
Astro City hits its 100th anniversary issue; Astro City #41. This issue will have a couple of character introductions. Covers by Alex Ross, written by Kurt Busiek and art from Brent Eric Anderson.

It’s hard to believe the Thunderbolts will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in Thunderbolts #10 this Wednesday. Way back in Incredible Hulk #449 (1997), we got our first look at the then Thunderbolts team. The team has changed a number of times over the years, but that 1997 book was their first appearance. The 20 year old comic is still relatively affordable in some places on Ebay. Make sure you click our RED link to see the pricing and availability.
The Spider-Man Deadpool #14 cover shows Deadpool and Spidey at a comic convention. There are a few Deadpool cosplayers vying for position for an opportunity photo with Wade and there are many Deadpool cosplayers scattered throughout. It’s fun/silly comic cover scenes like this that wind up getting speculators in a frenzy over a first appearance somewhere. Maybe this cover features the first appearance of Rabbitpool? Bunnypool? Afropool?

For some reason, when the Elektra character debuts a new series, it always starts off red hot, but then tails off. We have faith this will not be the case for the new series beginning on Wednesday. Look for quick initial interest for Elektra #1, written by Matt Owens and art from Juan Cabal. If you like it, be sure to support the comic and buy the next issue(s).

Indie Hot Picks;
IDW Publishing delivers a few comics on this week’s Hot Picks list.
Revolutionaries #2 features the all new Storm Shadow.
If you’re an animal lover, there’s a comic for you this week. Check out IDW’s Animal Noir #1. Writer/artist Izar Lunacek tells the tale of animals that talk, wear clothes, smoke and investigate a prey fantasy film. We think this may not be a comic for the kiddies.
TMNT Universe #7 reveals the new Metalhead.
IDW also offers up Cosmic Scoundrels #1, Andy Suriano and Matt Chapman bring this web series to life. Two annuals; Judge Dredd Annual #1 and My Little Pony Annual #1.

Every new Black Mask comic release sells out (mostly). They offer up Quantum Teens Are Go #1. Written by Magdalene Visaggio and art by Eryk Donovan.

Image one shot; Belfry #1 will probably sell out. Writer/artist Gabriel Hardman delivers a horror story that may have fans asking for more. It starts here.
Speaking of sold out comics, Old Guard #1 will probably join Belfry #1 as the duo will show strong sales out of the gate. Old Guard #1, a story of old soldiers that won’t die. Written by the awesome Greg Rucka and art from Leandro Fernandez.
A sold out comic from Press Gang in 2016 makes its way to Image comics. The Anime style Sun Bakery #1 from writer/artist Corey Lewis.

God Country #2 – Image Comics may have another hit on their hands. The The Geoff Shaw/Jason Wordie tribute cover (Savage Dragon) is sold out.
Justice League #15 – A possible first appearance in this comic. If not, no biggie, you get the first part of a new story; ‘Timeless’ from writer Bryan Hitch and artist Fernando Pasarin.

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).

Batman #9 – The beginning of the new Batman made Suicide Squad team. It all starts here.

Deadpool Too Soon #1 – Deadpool puts together his own team this week. Not of the villain psychopath kind though. His team consist of Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon, Howard The Duck, Ant-Man, Groot and the Punisher. Maybe not the most sane bunch, but a team only fitting for Deadpool.

Archie #13 – The arrival of the new Cheryl Blossom.

Mighty Thor #12 – Think you know anything about hammers? Well maybe you do, maybe you don’t, but this Wednesday you’ll get an origin story of Thor’s hammer; The Mighty Mjolnir!

Green Lanterns #9 – This issue begins the epic story line involving the newest Lantern ring that first appeared a few issues prior in Green Lanterns #6. ‘The Phantom Ring’ part 1 starts this week.

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 #6 CGC graded 9.0 (1973). Anytime a collector is able to purchase a 9.0 signed book from a LEGEND such as Bernie Wrightson, there should be absolutely no hesitation in buying that book. Here, case in point is a Swamp Thing #6, CGC graded 9.0 for $99 Buy It Now with a Bernie Wrightson signature. There is no question that a collector must have this in their collection. Then check out one of our first InvestComics Creator Spotlights; Bernie Wrightson (click image below). We released this back in early 2015 with the release of our new site, so don’t mind the messiness in the article, just buy things from this creator, he’s a LEGEND. That’s it. Nuff said.

Once in while on new comic book Wednesday there is a comic that we know we’re about to tout with great glee. This week is one of those times. A story line that will aim to please and will have speculators peeking in as well. Batman #9 is the book that collectors need to check out this Wednesday. It’s the first part of a story line named “I Am Suicide.” We love that title. This title is a prologue on what is to come. Batman has to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve one of his greatest adversaries ever; Bane. The reasoning is to recruit a few of his foes to form his very own Suicide Squad to rescue Gotham Girl and Psycho-Pirate. The modern day Batman Suicide Squad team starts right here. You really need to get in on the ground floor and that ground floor starts in this issue.

Green Lanterns #6 debuted the most powerful ring of all; the Phantom Ring. This Wednesday in Green Lanterns #9 “The Phantom Ring” part one!

So many delays, puts the Dark Knight III series into the “oh is that coming out this month? I didn’t know that.” phase. Dark Knight III The Master Race #6 makes it to the new comics shelf this week with the tag line “Is Gotham ready for the new Batgirl?” Here’s a better question “Does anyone care at this point?” Delays and too much time between books kills momentum and interest.

What is it with the names of some of the new comics these days? Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #1? Okay. Why not just Cave Carson #1? So pretentious, no?

Marvel will put out an origin story about a hammer. Not just any hammer of course. Thor’s hammer: The Mighty Mjolnir. Check out the hammer story in Mighty Thor #12. We bet no one (most no one) at Home Depot or Lowes knows about this hammer.

The latest Marvel Comics sensation is Deadpool Back In Black. This week, Deadpool Back In Black #2 comes out and it will sell out like the first issue did. There will probably be a lower print run (obviously) of the second issue, so get on this if you want a first print. The Ron Lim Venompool cover is solid, but it’s the Salva Espin homage cover of Amazing Fantasy #15 with Power Pack (and a clown!) that wins. Anyone remember what InvestComics has said about Power Pack over the past few years?? Since 2010. We actually touched on it more recently; InvestComics Hot Picks #437 (August). Yes it will probably happen eventually, you’ll see. Just remember to give us credit and not to be such a nerd and take the credit. Thanks!

Sticking with Deadpool, he seems to be following in the footsteps of Batman in the gathering/assembling of a team in Deadpool Too Soon #1. The difference between him and Bats’ team is that his team does not consist of a bunch of adversaries. Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon, Howard The Duck, Ant-Man, Groot and the Punisher join forces. Like we always say, we don’t make this stuff up, we just report it.

Captain America Sam Wilson #14 features the villain Flag-Smasher smashing things up! A ridiculously beautiful cover by Marcos Martin adds to the awesomeness here. The hash tag movement Marvel is trying to start is right there on the cover for fans to see, #TakeBackTheShield. So what are you waiting for?? Start the hash tag movement! Oh and the most recent Flag-Smasher character first appeared in Deadpool #43 (2015).

Fans will learn more about Alice in A-Force #10. Alice first appeared in the previous issue; A-Force #9 and made a photo cameo in A-Force #8. That’s your Alice roundup!

Doctor Doom becomes Iron Man for the first time in Infamous Iron Man #1. Lots of pointless variants accompany this one.

DC Comics continues the lame ode to their last “52” number issue by paying homage to them via the SAME cover as the series’ number one issue. Dubbing the last issues (number 52) as a “homage variant”. Really?? Moving right along…….

Superman American Alien #7 will be the big DC book this week for InvestComics readers and collectors. First, the series will wrap up after receiving rave reviews throughout the series. Second, We learn more about the Superman on a motorcycle attempting to kill Clark. Third, speculators are on high alert with this book as artist JOCK takes over for the final issue. Jock also blesses us all with a variant cover. Which leads us to a fourth reason why this comic is so awesome, that variant is sold out. Better get your hands on that one! Also, have you seen the InvestComics JOCK Creator Spotlight (checklist)? Jock himself loved it so much he shared it on Twitter! Click HERE to see all of his highlighted comics! 
Harley Quinn #28 shows fans a full view of the new hot character Red Tool on the cover. This obvious ripoff of Marvel’s Deadpool is really in full view here. Look for fans to grab this one to continue their love for Harley, Red Tool, and that cover.

Like it or not, the Hanna Barbera relaunch is happening with or without you. So either strap in and enjoy the new revamp or complain like a fanboy for no good reason. Except change, it’s okay to see things in a different perspective once in a while, so snap out of it and see what may come of things before you start complaining. Seriously, get over it. Now that you’re not whining anymore, DC’s Future Quest #1 hits this week with an all new look on the Johny Quest/Space Ghost characters. Embrace change, you may surprise yourself and actually like something after you actually READ it!
A ton of variants will be released with the presence in mind to remind readers on every cover, this isn’t the Hanna Barbera you’re accustomed to seeing. Breathe…..breathe…..deep breaths. Legend Bill Sienkiewicz exemplifies this best with his amazing variant cover.

Sci-Fi writer extraordinaire William Gibson makes his comic book debut with Archangel #1 from IDW Publishing. An almost guaranteed well written methodical Sci-Fi comic for fans of this genre. If you’re on the fence about getting this comic, get down off it and get this comic NOW. It will sell out in no time.
IDW follows up their hit Bigger Bang from 2015 with The Biggest Bang #1. IDW has found their Superman character.
An interesting premise brought to Brutal Nature #1 will have readers checking this out. Simply put, dude puts on different mask and becomes that “thing”. Venom Space Knight artist Ariel Olivetti will deliver his awesome pencils inside and on the covers. One cover looks like it has Venom on the cover, seriously, look. Cool!

Dark Horse will introduce fans to a new series; Mae #1. Gene Ha will pull double duty, writing and art. The Frank Cho variant is a keeper.

Spawn #263 will feature the all new Spawn as a human! With new powers too! Count us in!

InvestComics Spotlight Pick – Marvel Spotlight: Civil War

images

Speculation surrounding the next Cap film just got crazy with the announcement that Iron Man will be a cast member.  It seems Civil War is currently the event most people believe Marvel Films will adapt next.  While the story they use will probably be much different from Millar’s tale you can expect anything key to start getting scooped up now.  Variants from the mini are highly prized but if an event can have a first appearance this is it!

Comic Broker Report – Second Appearances

Serious collectors whom I speak with usually frown upon the 2nd appearance but like the recent popularity of reprints like Action Comics 1, Amazing Fantasy 15, certain Marvel Milestones and others it shows the continuing evolution of what makes a  comic desirable.  Some of the Action Comics 1 reprinst are fairly tough to track down.  Add a low printing and a craving from collectors and sales take off…

So do you want to stay ahead of market trends?  Start hoarding these:

Nightwing ( Dick Grayson )

So I have been told that the annual is Nightwing’s second appearance but issue 45 was released in August of 1984 and issue 44 in July.  I cannot find a release date for the annual so until I do I am going with 45 as Nightwing’s second appearance.  It’s important to note that Comic Collector 3 predates 44 and does show Nightwing in Costume.  That could make it the true first appearance of Nightwing and 44 his second.  Wow that’s a bit confusing.  Just buy them all.

405_20050924143112_large54614_20060929090950_large

Notable Comics:  The Comic Collector 3 predates Teen Titans 44, DC Sampler 2 ( September 1984 )

Cable

New Mutants 88

Cable has never looked as good thanks to Mcfarlane not that other chump.

4685_20060818161508_large

Notable comics:  New Mutants 86; he appears  at the end in a preview panel for next month’s issue!, Amazing Spider-Man 336 is his first appearance outside of a New Mutants Comic.

Venom

ASM 315

Ok so ASM 299 is considered a cameo making 300 his first appearance and this comic his second:

13117_20051126171121_large

Notable Comics: Web of Spider-Man 18,24  and if you collect Foreign comics:

228072_20111023111826_large

X-23

With rumors that she may take over as Wolverine it’s time to revisit her limited key books:

Nyx 4 is her second.

231_20060316091233_large

Notable Comics: X-Men 450 ( newsstand ), Nyx 5, Might Marvel Must Haves

45584_20111231160112_large

Domino

2674945-x_force__1991_2002_1st_series__008

As X-Force 11 creeps up in price due to the fact that many believe it to be her first appearance it has become clear that a market correction needs to be made.  Her first appearance is on the cover of New Mutants 98 even though it is a copycat Domino.  So if her likeness first appears in NM 98 then why are so many bent on believing her first appearance to be in X-Force 11?  X-Force 8 is her 2nd.

Note:  There has been no conformation that she will be appearing in the Deadpool film.

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:

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.

Notable additions:

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 1)

Here’s a fun and quick list of comic related properties that have roots in earlier novels and publications.  Based on printing and rarity some may be worth something to you especially if you are a completest like am or simply want to speculate on connections to upcoming  film/TV adaptations.  As always any added info is greatly appreciated and  helps all who enjoy comics.

V-Wars by Jonathan Mayberry

This 2012 work by Mayberry is a must own for any fan.

Here’s the first comic appearance of V-Wars ( again )

The Strain

The TV show has been renewed for a second season and gets better every week.  In a world where many speculators are seeking the quick flip certain comics now screams hold.  The first edition  book on the other hand is still cheap enough.

STAR WARS  SITH  INQUISITORS and other highly speculative publications:

At the end of the day no one really knows what the new film is going to be about but speculators are already wondering.

The Courtship of Princess Leia by John Wolverton

No one is talking about the Witches of Dathomir this week but one can hope.

CourtshipPrincessLeia_Full

The latest rumor focuses on the Sith Inquisitors and the possibility that they are the enemy in the new film.  The new animated show seems to support this.  The idea of the Inquisitors has been around for some time but it remains to be seen how much inspiration will be taken from an expanded universe Disney states is unrecognized.  My research on this continues and is admittedly incomplete:

First Appearance of Inquisitor Malorum?

Inquisitors key  ( unconfirmed )

250px-Rise_Shadow_Academy

First Appearance of Inquisitor Hydra

250px-Last_of_the_Jedi_8

First comic appearance of A Sith Inquisitor ( Darth Havok )  unconfirmed.  If you find an earlier inquisitor appearance please notify me as there likely is one.  I have yet to find an earlier  named comic appearance under the  title of Sith Inquisitor.

jedi vs sith 1 first darth bane

The earliest example of an Imperial Inquisitor I could find is Inquisitor Tremayne who first appeared in the Galaxy Guide 9: Fragments from the Rim is a supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game published by West End Games. It was written by Simon Smith and Eric Trautmann and was first published in 1993.

Another rumor puts Palpatine back in the driver seat at the franchise’s top bad guy!  He first appeared here

and in Star Wars 42 ( comic )

Then there’s the idea that Ania Solo will play a central role.  She first appeared here

Daisy Ridley has been cast and signed for three films and some of the elements of her character coincide with the plot of Legacy vol. 2 from Dark Horse.

In this comic she’s being hunted down by Darth Wredd who looks an awful lot like that leaked image of a possible Sith Inquisitor.

Comic Broker Report – Speculative Summer Special

Some of these may be easier to find than others.  Some you may have to expand on my own research as is the case with this first one.  Part of the appeal when collecting comics is finding that gem that has yet to be discovered by others.  Enjoy this list but remember you buy comics at your own risk.  Be very careful where you put your money and always do your own research.

Spawn Facts and Illusions VHS Set

index1108469

Todd McFarlane has announced one of his properties has studio hopes.  Realizing that all of his creations mostly suck people are speculating on Sam & Twitch.  I tend to agree.  The 26 issue run is quite impressive but they are part of a larger world and appeared first in Spawn 1.  Ok well there goes the idea of a rare first appearance right?  Turns out Spawn 1 was released earlier in this VHS coddball set.  One thing that is pretty cool about it, this little comic was included.  Does it feature Sam & Twitch in any capacity? If so this would supplant Spawn 1 as their first appearance.  Unfortunately these are so rare that I cannot track one down to confirm.  Also the Printing of the included Spawn 1 appears to be no different from the Direct or Newsstand we all know.

For those who think  Haunt should be in the mix too:

Image Haunt Preview Book

1006879

 

Vertigo Defy

index

First appearance of the The Wake and others.  The Wake will eventually be made into a film.  When it does people will realize it was previewed in this throw away.  Lucky for you that knowledge will already be yours!

 

Danger Mouse 1982 Annual

2557618-dmann82

Ok even I cannot confirm this one but Danger Mouse’s first American Comic appearance is in Count Duckula 3.  He appeared overseas earlier in Annuals and the magazine Look-in.  To my knowledge this issue contains his first printed comics outside of Look-In.  So why should you care?  New shows are coming!

 

What’s Next ( Image )

1642337

So  Rat Queens is hot hot hot!  Personally I’m lukewarm on it.  Don’t get me wrong it has potential but it’s a newbie and that makes me cautious long term despite TV news.   This one is already gaining traction on the back issue market and is similar to The Image Winter Special relationship to the Walking Dead.  It prints a Rat Queens tale that has yet to printed elsewhere.

 

The Intrepids 1,1 ( second Print )

intrepids_01_cover1021099

Interest could spark in all of Mr. Wiebes work.  These are affordable but there is an Emerald City Con Variant which is tougher to track down.

 

Marvel Premiere two-in-one 52  ( First Crossfire )

13042_20051224085501_large

Darren Cross is the Ant-Man villain?  Who?  Oh the guy who appeared in fewer issue than Kurse.  Marvel sure loves some obscure antagonists.  Darren first appeared in the already pricey Marvel Premiere 47 & 48 so they should already be on your list.  Since Crossfire is related to Darren Cross he could end up filing a role akin to Crossbones in the Winter Soldier.

Nutty 1

1341548-nutty1 first bananaman

If the return of Danger Mouse is possible why not Bananaman?

 

 Malignant Man 1-4

mXV3xbP2WhfNTIv9NYPaOCQ

Unfortunately Fox has not picked up a gem.  These  will be tough to track down as it is a few years old and the demand created by it’s limited availability will bump up online prices.    First to market may have already passed by the time you read my article  as news broke days ago.  Sell now if you have em’ but I would invest my time in other bins.

Comic Broker Report – March 2014 (Updated)

There is nothing I can say today that will take me away from watching Season one of True Detective in one sitting.  You should be doing the same, right after you read this though!

 

Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos 27 ( First Eric Koenig )

93346_20070512152904_large

So Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still has not sparked the interest as I had hoped it would.  Uninteresting characters ( not including Bill Paxton ) will do that but when Patton Oswalt was announced as reformed Nazi Shield Agent Eric Koenig, I started to smile.  The ranks of shield could start filling up with some wonderful characters from Marvel’s past but unless the clairvoyant is M.O.D.O.K. I sill won’t be pleased.

Young Men 24

ym24

Rumors of the Psychotic Captain America, William Burnside appearing as the villain in Captain America 3 have been a hot topic this week.  Early  reviews of The Winter Soldier have been overwhelmingly positive and Marvel has already started chirping about the third film in the franchise.  So who is William Burnside?

The general consensus is that he first appears here although he may have appeared earlier in  All Select 9 ( unconfirmed ).  Burnside is an interesting idea for a film antagonist.  He’s a man so obsessed with Steve Rogers he tries to become him!  It’s also possible he could appear in film as The Grand Director.

Captain America 231 ( First Burnside as The Grand Director )

Captain America vol 5.  4, 7 ( 2006 )

1871_20050921180239_large2032489-04

These I like because of Brubaker, a man who will go down as the most influential Cap writer of the last 20 years.  Though Burnside is only shown via flashback in 7 they could be key down the road.  Considering the current importance of Issue 6, 6b,1 and the,14 reprint- I would buy now and hold.  Cap 153-155 are a good Bronze Age bet too!

Amazing Spider-Man 359, 360

736963

Collectors and buyers love them some ASM 361 and the 361 2nd print but Carnage’s roots can be traced back to issue 354.  These issues remain key to the development of the character despite their awful covers.  Also the cover to issue 361 is published first in issue 359.

Green Arrow ( new 52 ) 24     1 for 25 Variant Cover by Andrea Sorrentino

Arrow continues to surprise viewer with excellent episodes.   Bodyguard to Oliver Queen John Diggle is the best example of this.  He has become so popular that Jeff Lemire introduced him into the mainstream DCU in this issue:

arrow 24 first john diggle

but he actually appeared a little earlier in this 1:5 variant, out of continuity comic:

arrow 1 first john diggle

Note: There regular cover for this series is a photo cover.

Oni Color Special 2001

Ellen Page is going to star in Rucks’s Queen and Country.  I have mentioned Queen & Country 1 & the FCBD issue when the property was first optioned by Fox.  Don’t sleep on this issue though.  It features a very Early appearance of Tara Chace and one of her only appearances outside of Queen & Country.  The Powers appearances and cover don’t hurt either now that it too has been optioned by Sony for the Ps4.

40618_20060526101347_large

Action Comics 835 ( first in Continuity Livewire ),  Superman Adventures 5  

supe adv 5 first livewire1081527

Here’s some major speculation for you.  Much like Squirrel Girl, I love oddball first appearances of cool characters that could see increases in value down the road.  Livewire represents what I love most about comics and selling them for profit.  The key appearances of Livewire are cheap.  They are a safe bet and if you buy them you will probably want to hang on to them whether the market on them changes or not.

The Clone Wars 1 ( First Ahsoka Tano )

lStar Wars Clone Wars 1 first Tano

With Disney and Marvel taking over from Dark Horse a new era for Star Wars Begins.  Over the last 20 years there hasn’t been much to rave about in the way of new characters though.   Tano is one great exception.  Grab her first appearance now especially if your a fan of a universe experiencing a major shift in structure.

Note: There is a variant for this limited to 1000 copies.

UPDATE:  Are the Hunters the next big problem for Rick and company on AMC’s The Walking Dead?  Seeing how appearances of supporting characters are lighting up Ebay, issues 61-66 ( Fear the Hunters ) will be even harder to acquire if this rumor proves to be true.  61 and 63 are already key books thanks to the first appearance of Chew.

Nova 19 ( First Appearance Marcus Daniels, Blackout )

58321_20070515211825_large

Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to add villains!  I just hope Blackout doesn’t wear his original costume!

32726_20060315174933_large

Korath the Pursuer is coming to the GOTG film.  Yay.

I’m not sure if this movie can handle any more characters but in this case the 35 cent price variant is the one to track down!

 

 

 

 

 

Rocket Raccoon – Checklist

Rocket Raccoon is set to make Disney a lot of money.  If they can pull it off there is no ceiling for this wise ass, gun toting animal.  But unlike many other Marvel properties that have been translated to the big screen there are few appearances of the furry outlaw prior to 2006.  The time to hoard these comics was 6 months ago and now comics like Marvel Preview 7 and Hulk 271 are nowhere to found.  Since the first GOTG trailer certain comics have tripled in value.  There is still time to find some of these for very little money and even if you don’t collect comics you might be surprised to learn where RR has appeared in the past!

The RR 1980’s mini is finally seeing the  internet sales action its deserves.  So why no love for this comic especially with a Mignola cover?  Note:  Mignola also did the mini-series.

Contest of Champions 3

hhhh

This odd formula has since become a favorite of writers.  Series like there are usually full of both popular and obscure characters which might be why he’s said to be in this issue.  So far this one is not confirmed.

imagesguardians-of-the-galaxy-1-2nd-second-print-variant-2008-marvel-comic-book-5085-p[ekm]190x300[ekm]

In 2008 Marvel gave us the greatest incarnation of the GOTG to date.  All this happened on the heels of one of the best cosmic crossovers ever done in comics.  If you go back and read Annihilation and others you will not be disappointed  and it’s no surprise that Marvel has based it’s current cosmic plans around these characters.

Debate is already raging over this one.  Is it the first appearance of the 2008 GOTG or not?  Whatever the market decides this comic is a key origin issue and leads directly into issue one of the 2008 series.

This one is starting to see some heat but is still affordable enough to buy cheap and hold.  It features Rocket’s origin and is a tough variant to track down.

There is a significant market for collectors of alternate reality comics.  Exiles was once considered to be one of Marvel’s finest comics.  Though there are few issues which hold any real value there are some yummy nuggets if you know where to look.  Take this issue for example, a rare RR appearance lies within.

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

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.

Preacher Preview ( 1994 )

1983890-3039191_1

This eight page preview of the upcoming series was a flimsy publication. It had a ridiculously low print run making it extremely hard to find in NM. It often demands more money on the back issue market than issue one of the regular series. At this point I think it’s fair to say that this is the first appearances of the major characters from the series and features one of the more iconic Copper Age covers by Glenn Fabry.

DC used to distribute these slim preview style comics that often features pin-ups, previews and other treats. Despite the fact that most were printed on glossy paper they too are rare in high grade. Most people simply tossed them into the garbage. This issue features the cover to preacher 1!

Absolute Vertigo ( Winter 1995 )

indexdd

Another comic that previewed new series from Vertigo, people realized later that this preview of Ennis and Dillon’s series also predated issue 1.

Absolute Vertigo Promo Poster

The poster came out before the comic and Jesse Custer is on the cover.

Hellblazer 60

1076c848850cde42d6fdcea00c7e1289e7f8524b4d4200c8a7979c83

This one is tough because there are some die hards who believe that Genesis was conceived here but even Ennis had said that he just used the same idea twice and that there is no connection. Ennis’s run on Hellblazer is worth owning anyways so you  might as well pick this one up too if you haven’t already.

Vertigo Gallery: Dreams and Nightmares ( 1995 )

702208-vertigo_gallery

Unbeknownst  to many this pin-up gallery features an early appearance of Jesse Custer and friends by Dillon. It has a release date of 1995 but lists no month. Seeing that Absolute Vertigo had a publication date of December 1995 at worst this issue came out at the same  time as Absolute Vertigo. It probably hit shelves prior to Absolute.

Preacher 1 ( first appearance of The Saint of Killers ), #2 ( first appearance of Arseface) ,12 ( bagged ), 13 ( first appearance of Herr Starr )

2032961-022032973-13

Early issues of the regular series hold value.  First appearances of Fan favorites Arseface, The Saint of Killers and Herr Starr should see gains. Issue 12 was available in a bagged edition which is a tough score. Normally I would include the last few issues of this series but in this case the conclusion was highly anticipated and print runs were not as low as other series who’s last issues become rare due to cancellation.

Comic Broker Report – November 2013

Speculation runs rampant this week!  In today’s comic collecting world the TV/Film adaptation is king. If it’s rumored to be optioned or developed the online market can heat up quick ( see Alias #1 on Ebay ).

Iron Man 17 ( 1:100 Sketch Variant )

index

The reaction to Iron Man’s tweaked origin has been met with mixed reviews. Either way this book should prove to be key down the road especially if Marvel brings back a particular Iron Man from the near future.

The Avenger Magazine 1-24  Shadow Comics 2

The_Avenger_Coverindex

The CW looks to option everything they can. This long forgotten Pulp hero has some interesting powers and could make for an intriguing show.  Issues of the original series and appearances from Shadow Comics are very rare in any condition.

Batman Noel

index

Lee Bermejo’s over-sized GN is a good read and worth a look for any Batman fan. As rumors continue to pile up concerning the upcoming Superman Batman film collector’s are already starting to scramble for key comics. If you are wondering what Affleck’s Batman is going to look like this design is currently the frontrunner.

New Avengers 10 & Infinity 4 1:150 Variant

Infinity_4_CoverVariantStegmannew avengers 10 first thane

Thanos has a son and that means a first appearance that’s likely worth tracking down. Like Kamal Khan we won’t know for some time if he will spark the  interest of collectors but it’s a good bet. These days most things Thanos related are doing well ( See Avengers 157! )

Uber 1/2 ( Bleeding Cool Magazine )

BCM8-600x910

As much as I dislike this series one cannot deny it’s popularity amongst collectors. In the tradition of Wizard Magazine this 1/2 issue should appeal to many. Only available in the print publication of BC it’s going to be hard to come by.

Infinity Inc 20,21 ( Hourman 2 )

As stated above comic studio options are the flavor of the month but Hourman? Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy when almost any comic makes the leap to the screen but there are definitely more deserving characters. The other question is which Hourman will they use? The first appearance of the original Hourman is pricey but if they use his son these will rise fast.

Clint 8

mv6Ct_aUlBx-dJB1GYnNFfw

Last month I mentioned Who is Jake Ellis? and it’s impending adaptation.  The regular series issues will be tough to find so go and buy this over-sized reprint of the same title. It’s rare only available in this size here and a highly enjoyable read that features other impressive comics from Mark Millar!

Tales of the Teen Titans 44

index

Here’s a George Perez classic that’s already hot on the back issue market! Featuring the first appearance of Dick Grayson as Nightwing, this comics is sure to remain a highly sought after  issue for years to come. Like Batman Noel, if rumor’s of Nightwing’s inclusion in the next film are true this one will become the hottest comic in some time.

Green Lantern 21 Sketch variant ( first Relic )

index

When someone like Geoff Johns leaves a title like GL there is sure to be some fall off in readership but if you have been missing the latest event you should be ashamed of yourself. Relic and his quest to extinguish lantern light has been a fresh and original read, something hard to come by from DC these days. (excluding Batman and anything by Jeff Lemire)

Alias 1, Amazing Spider-Man 4, Amazing Spider-Man 601

Alias_Vol_1_1 background

Technically Alias 1 is the first appearance of Jessica Jones until Marvel retconned her via flashback in AMS 601 making her first appearance in AMS vol. 1 issue 4.

With a Netfix series on the way look for her appearances to increase in value.

House of Mystery Annual 1 ( 2009 )

house-of-mystery-annual-review

Mike Allred’s izombie has also been optioned for TV. This one might just be the sleeper of the month! It’s hard to come by and filled with great stories from other outstanding creators.

-Topher

 

UPDATE:

Incredible Hulk 178 ( first appearance of the infinity gems )

2849141-hulk178

Here’s a rumor that actually may prove to be right.  Thanks Benicio Del Toro!

 

Sleeper

So Ben Affleck isn’t just the Caped Crusader, he’s also getting into the adaptation of wonderful espionage comics!  Sleeper is one of Brubaker’s best.  Look for these to blow up soon:

Point Blank 3: First Carver

Sleeper 1

WildC.A.T.S. 21: First Tao

Point_Blank_3 index27050_20060303155337_large

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

A new TMNT film means renewed interest in the famous mutants!  We all know what issues are rare and worth collecting but they also have appeared in many other titles, some of which are quite hard to come by:

 

1.  Furrlough 52

FURRLOUGH-52-1997-1598-2351

This outstanding, long running series should not be missed by fans of anthropomorphic comics.  Not only does this issue have a wonderful cover but it’s a rare appearance by Ninjara, a supporting character from the TMNT universe!

2.  New Age Comics 1

3117530-new+age+comics+v1985+001+(1985)+pagecover

Published in 1985 this rarity features one of the earliest appearances of the foursome in color!  Flip it over and find out!

3.  Comic Buyers Guide 545

Comic Buyers 545 First TMNT

Why would an old buyer’s guide be worth anything?  In this particluar issue an ad for the Turtles appeared prior to any other known appearance and was the catalyst for the craze to come!

4. Last of the Viking Heroes 2 and 3

863035862813

Awesome color covers make these forgotten issues worth pulling from the q-bin.

5.  Grimjack 26

Grimjack26

See above.

6. Extremely Silly 1

3147512-ext1

Ben Dunn draws the TMNT!  Good luck finding it.  This issue from AP has to be one of the hardest turtle issues to locate.

7. Miami Mice 4

709017

The turtles appear and some guy name Dave Sim contributes!

8. Flaming Carrot

If you have yet to enjoy the masterpiece that is The Flaming Carrot then I really do feel bad for you.  Issues are rare these days but are worth dipping into the no-honey money to acquire them all.

9. Turtlemania Special

index

There are variants for this ashcan size comic but my personal favorite is this yellow cover.  They sell for decent money on the back issue market so be prepared to pay a hefty sum if you want one in NM.

10.  Cerebus 155

250px-Cerebus155Cover

Again Sim and the TMNT together just can’t go wrong.

11. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 12 ( Image, 1996 )

71042-11889-104040-1-teenage-mutant-ninja

Here is an odd comic.  Fans of the comics are pretty adamant about keeping female turtles out of the group.  The TV show included Venus De Milo, the first female turtle and she caused outrage amongst fans.  This issue features a female turtle but it’s a spoof.  Is she Venus or something else?

12. How to Draw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ( Solson )

More rare comics from Solson!

13. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness ( Palladium )

TMNT_and_Other_Strangeness

Palladium published a plethora of TMNT related material in the 80’s and 90’s.  Most of it is very rare.

14. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Authorized Training  Manual ( Solson )

2397429588_7913e82e89_o

I am still waiting for an unauthorized edition!

15. Pre-Teen Dirty-Gene Kung-Fu Kangaroos 1

Once the turtles became popular others tried desperately to replicate the success.  Here is one example where the TMNT had a cameo.

Quivers 1

This comic was written by the modern Marvel legend.  Look back in his catalog  and you will find he has done some obscure stuff.  One of the best dialogue writers of his age, Brian continues to churn out quality work.

Tales of Apocalypse 2 ( Marvel )

This one should remind us all that Alpha Flight 51 was not Lee’s first pro work!  Those who collect Lee likely know this by now but it should be repeated. This comic is very tough to find.

Other notable early comics: Alpha Flight 51 of course!

4. Frank Miller

So one of the most prolific writers in comics was first published in what?  That’s right!  The man who revolutionized Daredevil, Batman and others has one of the more rare first efforts.  There’s a Gold Key logo cover but the Whitman is the one to have!

5. Scott Snyder

Scott Snyder has yet to prove that he has any staying power in this industry but so far he’s doing a pretty good job!  His Batman run has redefined the character and is one of the few modern examples of how to successfully craft a reboot of an icon.

Other notable early comics: American Vampire 1 ( all versions ), Iron Man Noir 1-4

6.  Mark Millar

2000 A.D. 643

Mr. Millar has become one of the more successful writers of the last decade.  With  movie adaptions of works like Wanted and Kick-Ass, it appears  as if he’s here to stay.  Mark Millar’s early DC work includes Batman LOTDK 79 ( DC ) which is a cheap snag at any shop but his first pro work was in 2000 A.D.

Other notable early comics: Saviour, 2000 A.D. 648, Swamp Thing 140

7.  Chris Ware

Eclpse GN Series: Floyd Farland

Mr. Ware is an indie great.  He has established himself as one of the most creative sequential artists alive today.  But his earliest work was a mess that he hated so much, he offered original art to those who mailed him copies.  Finding it now is nearly impossible.

Other notable early comics:  Raw 2, Zero Zero 5, Pictopia 3

8..  Mike Mignola

The Comic Reader 183

Putting any speculation to rest on this legend’s first work was not that easy so I asked the man himself at the Boston Comiccon 2013.  A simple black and white pin-up of Red Sonja was all he had published but it was the start to a career that has influenced so many current artists.

Other Notable early comics: Rocket Raccoon 1-4, What if 39, Comic Reader 184,203

Battle Pope 1 ( Funk-O-Tron )

The man who penned Invincible, Battle Pope and, oh yea, The Walking Dead has done a fair amount of work for Image.  But his first pro work was in this fabulous series from Funk-O-Tron!!!

Comic Broker Report – Collecting Fables

Here’s a quick one for all you speculators out there. It looks like rip-offs, Once Upon a Time and Grimm won’t deter the makers of Harry Potter from adapting Bill Willingham’s masterpiece into a film! That’s good news for those folks who hoarded early issues of the series. Here’s a quick list of the one’s I would invest in:

Fables 1,1A

In 2002 DC’s Vertigo took a chance on a comic with a fresh concept. Popular with fans, issues 1-5 aren’t that easy to find these days.

Note: There are also two reprints of issue 1. The 25 cent version is also worth buying as it could see gains in similar fashion to the Walking Dead reprints.

4988_20051110183236_large 59944_20060827091031_large

Fables 6b

This  DC RRP variant  is one of DC’s most collectible comics from 2002. Super rare and sure to see a big bump from recent film rumors I say buy if you ever get the chance.

126460_20090521111119_large

American Century 15

DC’s Vertigo imprint is famous for previewing upcoming comics and projects in the back of their issues. For certain comics that can mean real value down the road. Comics like Preacher ( Previewed in two comics! ) or 100 Bullets ( see Transmetropolitian ) can become very rare. The problem for Fables-no preview anywhere. So if you need to own all Fables related material, track down this forgotten Chaykin comic which features an interview with Fables Creator Bill Willingham. It was released prior to issue 1 of the series!

25208_20060120171711_large

Codename Knockout 12

This wonderful series was popular enough that back issues are not easy to come by. Again there was no preview for Fables but if you want the first in print appearances of major characters look right here!

Fables 75

This over-sized issue has a few things going for it other than a sick cover and the conclusion to War and Pieces-Eric Powell art!

140259_20080911190404_large

Warp 8

If you didn’t know that Bill Willingham was around long before his hit series then go find this issue of Warp from First Comics, his first pro work!

56343_20060905135838_large

Fairest 1 ( Retailer RRP Variant Cover by Adam Hughes. )

Another rare RRP issue for this Fables spin-off features the Women of Fables! It is both collectible and well written.
