Here are a few possible first appearances to look for this Wednesday. Lobo Vol 3 #9, the first appearance of Wyvern Cross? Not too sure. We found Alex Wyvern. DC fans, help us out, same dude or not? As a regular reader on the InvestComics website, you should know by now that we tell you every month to buy up the Star Wars comics. Not only are you buying good stories, but you’re getting a potential aftermarket bump speculative comic each and every time. The Star Wars craze is still five months away, but the new Marvel comics are reacting now. Any sign of a new character or major plot line and the market instantly reacts. Darth Vader #8 this Wednesday will be a book to buy. An introduction? Maybe. If not, you have great reading on your hands anyway. Worth the $4.99. It’s a win-win. Check out Guardians Of Knowhere #2, new character Yotat graces the cover. And finally, Detective Comics #43. First off, what a fantastic cover from Francis Manapul. And check out a new weapon in this comic to take down Bats and his team.

The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows story line is firing on all cylinders. Spider-Man seems to always have a hit story line these days right? Well this week Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #3 will hit and the Comicxposure variant is a biggie. Look at that cover by Mike Deodato Jr. Awesome right? Maybe InvestComics will give one of these away! Stay tuned! In the meantime click the link and head on over to Comicxposure. Buy the variant before they are all gone.

Before moving on here. A reminder as we have mentioned so many times in the past here on InvestComics. Just because a comic is sold out does not mean there will be monetary gains to be had. At the end of the day, the sold out comic must bring something tangible to the table. Besides the obvious first appearance factor for a speculative book, It must bring a buzz/interest for fans to come back to buy more. Publishers have the responsibility to provide an on time comic to sustain that interest and buzz. If the comic comes out on time and the buzz sustains and the interest is there, it’s a mix for possible success within the aftermarket. A sold out comic does not mean aftermarket success. Many factors go into why a comic does well for speculators after its release. Know the guidelines, follow InvestComics to give you the scoops all the time on how to watch for these things. Another reason is the release count. This plays a huge part in the process as well. Too many copies make for a watered down product, thus affecting your bottom line. See, many factors. Stick around here as you do, you’ll learn the real factors as to why things do what they do in the market. We are the number one comic book speculation website for a reason. And thanks to all of you of course. So let’s move along shall we?

These articles focus on comics that no one is talking about or speculating on anymore. Mostly for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but with that said these comics have been long forgotten and simply not thought of by many collectors. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down and worth some extra cash in the aftermarket, but isn’t the hunt always more fun? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red links provided in this article or comic cover, that’s if you don’t feel like hunting them down or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Or have a resurgence? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Avengers Icons: The Vision (2002) A four issue mini-series written by Geoff Johns and art by Ivan Reis. What is there not to love about this? A great story here. Needs to be in your collection today.

Warlock Special Edition (1982) Can’t afford or find the early Warlock stories from Strange Tales? How about an awesome six part reprint series? Jim Starlin provides new covers. And with Warlock rumored to debut in the Marvel Cinematic universe eventually, these books will be in demand even though they are reprints.

The Black Dragon (1985) This long forgotten sword and sorcery series was brought to you by writer Chris Claremont and artist John Bolton. Great stuff here.

Tigra (2002) Why hasn’t Tigra become an Avenger in the movies? Too campy maybe? But so cool though. This forgotten series was penciled by Mike Deodato Jr (and covers). Written by Christina Z.

Claws (2006) This series had smash hit written all over it. It did okay for its time, but no one remembers it today. Written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. Art and covers by Joseph Michael Linsner.

Jungle Action 5 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

We’re about to approach a heavy topic here, but it’s reality and it’s part of this characters make up so we need to discuss it.

As racism is so prevalent these days, Stan Lee and the mighty Marvel crew back in the 1960’s were tackling the issue head on through funny books. They obviously did not stand for the hate mongering that existed so front and center back then. They took a stand. Not to say they don’t today, but back then taking a stand on racism was more of an outside the box thing to do and a noble one at that. As it is noble today too.

Nowhere is the topic of racism more predominant than with the character Black Panther. The first African born superhero character debuted in 1966 and Marvel Comics made sure the readers knew that racism was going to be a huge part of the character development. The Marvel crew took the same path during war times with Hitler and the Nazi’s. Showing how the hatred will always lose because of the ignorance, the non-education, the intolerance, and the emotional disconnect toward humanity.

Yes the Black Panther character is, if not one of the most important comic characters to ever be created. He wasn’t an alien from another planet with super human strength, he doesn’t have mutant powers, no he was not accepted because of the altering difference of powers he possessed over a human being or the knowledge of him being an alien, he wasn’t accepted because the color of his skin. Sounds ridiculous to even write that.

Although we’ve all come so far, there is still more work to do. Racist are not born, they are taught. It’s an infectious disease that spreads because of the rhetoric gospel taught by ignorance. Wake up it’s 2015.

Below is a checklist of some key appearances by the Black Panther. As always, there will be books that are not listed. Please help the collectors by writing your entry below in the comment section if you want to contribute.

 

Fantastic Four #52 (1966) First appearance. Written by Stan Lee, Pencils by Jack ‘King’ Kirby, cover by Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Also, this issue is the first time we ever know of the land Wakanda in Africa. This is also the character Bast’s first appearance.

Fantastic Four #53 (1966) Second appearance of Black Panther. First appearance of Klaw. Same creative team as the previous issue.

Tales of Suspense #97 (1968) The first time Black Panther appears in a story with Captain America. This issue also happens to be the first appearance of Whiplash.

Tales of Suspense #98 (1968) The first Captain America/Black Panther cover. Jack ‘King’ Kirby does the honors here.

Shrinking Man Larry Comics

Star Wars 7 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

Star Wars #7 – This one shot story will be brought to us by the creative team of Simone Bianchi (artist) and writer Jason Aaron. Look for this Star Wars comic to sell out quick. If the aftermarket bust loose a bit on this, sell at a high point, do not wait for “more money”. Remember you paid only $4.99 for the comic. Greed not only kills, it leaves you with a lot of comic books you cannot move.

Sex Criminals #11 – The variant comic will be shipped “covered” in a poly bag. A mature XXX cover will have many collectors curious about it, thus driving interest, thus possibly driving the aftermarket a bit.

Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3 – Deadpool dons a very familiar black costume.

Shrinking Man #1 – IDW Publishing has a hit on their hands. This comic comes from the best selling author Richard Matheson. He’s written some big boy books with no pictures; I Am Legend, A Stir Of Echoes, What Dreams May Come, Somewhere In Time, The Last Man on Earth, Duel, and the list goes on. Both the regular and variant comics are sold out. Probably a good idea to grab one of these. Not only for the speculative aspect, but it’s going to be a great read too. Look for the Larry Comics/JetPack Comics exclusive as well. Great cover here.

Thors #3 – Groot Thor debuts. Great Groot Thor cover too by Dale Keown.

Star Wars #7 will be a special one shot story on Ben Kenobi. Take a look at Kenobi ala’ yesteryear. We get to witness a young Ben Kenobi and the bad as* he really is (assuming he’s a bad as*). This one shot story will be brought to us by the creative team of Simone Bianchi (artist) and writer Jason Aaron. Look for this Star Wars comic to sell out quick. If the aftermarket bust loose a bit on this, sell at a high point, do not wait for “more money”. Remember you paid only $4.99 for the comic. Greed not only kills, it leaves you with a lot of comic books you cannot move. Plenty of variants to choose from as well. A $100 John Cassaday sketch variant looks nice, but pricey.

IDW Publishing has a hit on their hands; Shrinking Man #1. This comic comes from the best selling author Richard Matheson. He’s written some big boy books with no pictures; I Am Legend, A Stir Of Echoes, What Dreams May Come, Somewhere In Time, The Last Man on Earth, Duel, and the list goes on. Both the regular and variant comics are sold out. Probably a good idea to grab one of these. Not only for the speculative aspect, but it’s going to be a great read too.

When the Sex Criminals book came out it was well received in the aftermarket. The announcement of a possible TV option made things out of control in a hurry. It is now possible to buy a number one 9.8 graded copy on Ebay at $99 or less (including variants). Then there is Sex Criminals #11 coming this Wednesday. There will be five variants accompanying the next five comic releases of Sex Criminals (Thank you to Larry’s Comics for the correction on this from the earlier posting of this article). All five will be poly-bagged because of the extreme mature sexual content on its covers. The covers will be “covered” when shipped in a polybag. Understood the story of this comic brings this type of outrageous shock value, but a severe gimmick here to lure fanboys to buy a comic they really don’t need. We’re quite sure the covers are probably fantastic artistic covers, but XXX covers? The controversy and interest these comics probably stir up will be the driving force behind any speculative aftermarket bump. Controversy sells, but at the end of the line, controversy simmers down and no one cares eventually. Larry does say that he feels the sketch cover will command your attention. Listen to Larry, he knows the deal.

Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3 will feature a new costume for Deadpool and it looks very familiar. The cover alone here will garner interest from fans, so it’s a safe bet to pick this one up and enjoy it. A sell out will probably occur here.

Groot Thor dons the variant cover from the awesome Dale Keown. Yes Groot Thor in Thors #3, you read that right. A $15 variant. This is just too cool and silly at the same time.

Dive into Black Widow’s past; Black Widow #20. A semi-origin story on Natasha Romanoff. Should be an interesting read.

Hacktivist #1 Vol. 2 from Boom Studios is sold out. Regular cover and variants. Robin Son Of Batman #2 introduces Dragon’s Head. The Justice League Gods and Monsters DVD is awesome, get that right HERE. The Justice League Gods and Monsters Superman #1; Darwyn Cooke variant is sold out as is IDW’s Ghostbusters Get Real #2 EC variant. A bunch of DC Annuals hit this week. Deathstroke Annual #1 is a standout. Artist Tony Daniel will bring it as he always does on this title.

Secret Wars #1 Comicxposure Gabriele Dell Otto variant has been long since sold out. How about winning one from InvestComics? Thanks to Comicxposure this will happen! Stay tuned to the InvestComics website for details!

Dawn  (2)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

 

Wonder Woman has made her movie debut in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer (Pictured). Now the clock starts ticking as to when WW will get her own solo film, if ever. Can she, will this character be able to hold up in their own film? That’s the million dollar question. A great character with some serious history. There are many directions the Wonder Woman franchise can go, whether any of them work or not is the big question. Not doubting it cannot be done, just a little hesitant to call a WW solo film an absolute winner. For now though, there are plenty of comics to pick up within the 74 years of comic history here; first appearances and key books. Plenty of time as well. We won’t see a solo Wonder Woman title movie for a while. Look for these comics below in the mean time. Some are great pickups right now because the frenzy has not hit.

Dawn  (1)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

There are many Wonder Woman first appearances and key issues that did not make this list. With the rich history comes a lot of material. Also, the DC universe is a vast and convoluted place. There are too many Earth 2, Earth this, Post Flashpoint, Pre Crisis, Post Crisis, etc. So because of this, there will be misses in this checklist. You are more than welcome to list any comic we may have missed in the comment section below.

Also, many of the earlier comics are not available on Ebay right now. Just because they are not available now does not mean they wouldn’t be later on. Some are in fact available right now, like the very first appearance in All Star Comics #8. Be sure to check back to see if some of the comics you seek have been posted.

 

All Star Comics #8 (1941) First appearance of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor. Golden Age.

Sensation Comics #1 (1942) Second appearance of Wonder Woman. Origin. First appearance of the Invisible plane.

Cyborg #1 – Look for this series to do very well. The Cyborg character is on the cusp of really breaking out. More possible movie announcements forthcoming and the added creative team here on this comic adds a positive direction for Cyborg.

Enormous #1 vol 2 – Last year the Enormous comic from 215 Ink was huge (no pun intended). This week 215 goes back to the well with a new number one. Expect some of the same drive toward the book as the regular and variant copies are sold out already.

Book Of Death Fall Of Bloodshot #1 – The Book Of Death story line is doing very well. Valiant Entertainment has a hit on their hands.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) – A must already have or own comic book. No collector should be without the first appearance of New Teen Titans.

Captain Canuck #2 – Chapter House Comics has the Captain Canuck character in demand. Thanks to good story telling and great marketing. Be sure to make our neighbors proud, buy this comic and enjoy it.

A new series from writer David Walker and artist Ivan Reis/Joe Prado coming this Wednesday; Cyborg #1. Look for this series to do very well. The Cyborg character is on the cusp of really breaking out. More possible movie announcements forthcoming and the added creative team here on this comic adds a positive direction for Cyborg. His first appearance was in DC Comics Presents #26 (1980), as was it the first appearance of the New Teen Titans. And that book at any price is still a great book to own these days.

Last year the Enormous comic from 215 Ink was huge (no pun intended). This week 215 goes back to the well with a new number one; Enormous #1 vol 2. Expect some of the same drive toward the book as the regular and variant copies are sold out already. The first volume was well crafted and the potential television show made for more attractiveness from the speculator. If the speculation doesn’t pan out this time, you most likely still have a great read in your hands, which is as equally important if not more so.

Valiant Entertainment is firing on all cylinders these days with their Book Of Death story line. Book Of Death Fall Of Bloodshot #1 focuses on the ultimate demise of Bloodshot. A few visits to some comic conventions this year, I have run into quite a few fans regarding Valiant Entertainment and their product around their booth. The common thread among all of the fans is content. The story telling is the driving force behind Valiant’s success these days. I agree. This is what makes comic books fun, not the 57 variants of a new number one comic, not a 3D cover, not a gimmick, a good story drives a comic. 100% of the time and Valiant is all over this. If you are not familiar with Valiant and what they are offering, you really should check them out, you’ll be hooked.

Weirdworld #2 informs readers that a “Crystal Warrior” appears. Does this character have anything to do with the Crystal Warrior from 1983? Marvel Age #1 (1983 first appearance) and then a month later in Crystal Warrior #1 (1983) Ha! Both with Walt Simonson covers too! Probably way off here, maybe not, but either way man those Crystal Warrior books were fun.

Justice League Gods and Monsters Batman #1, a prequel to the DC animated movie. Buy the awesome DVD right HERE. The Darwyn Cooke variant is sold out. Also sold out, but across the board on this one; Archie vs Sharknado #1. It’s Sharknado man, come on gotta love it!

Captain Canuck #2 from Chapter House Publishing. An all new threat for the Captain in a backup story. The Captain is making a comeback!

Stan Lee’s Chakra The Invincible #1 (Graphic India). This character was spawned from new comic book day. Now a new new series. Pick it up for the kids, great stuff here.

Star Lord and Kitty Pryde #1 (Marvel) and Wolf #1 (Image Comics) are books to get your read on. Wolf #1 has the speculation edge here though if any.

Aside from the obvious success of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has amassed quite the career thus far. This Creator Spotlight will not focus on the Walking Dead comics Robert has done because InvestComics has already covered most of them throughout the years. We’re going to focus on his body of work besides TWD, which is quite impressive to say the least. A young career, but yet so vast.

 

Battle Pope #1 (2000) Robert’s first published work. From Funk-O-Tron.

Battle Pope #2 (2000) Here is the first rare pencils from Kirkman. A pinup page.

Battle Pope #5 (2001) Kirkman’s first story art.

Superpatriot America’s Fighting Force #4 (2002) The first work outside of the indie circuit (besides the Dark Horse 9/11 book) for a major publisher. Image Comics.

Thief of Thieves #1 (2012) This series was a boiling book at one time. Never mind a hot one. It still commands some money in the aftermarket, but has since cooled down because of the lack of non-movement regarding a television show. Speculators however still anticipate something to happen.

Playboy Vol 59 #3 (2012) The Walking Dead; Michonne’s origin appeared in this magazine. And you Walking Dead fans thought you owned everything.

Outcast #1 (2014) This comic will be a soon to be television series. Get on this book now before it becomes too far out of possible reach. If the television series falls, no matter, still a great comic book.

The InvestComics Wristband Contest At New York Comic Con 2015. #InvestComicsNYCC

Buy a $1 wristband (Below), wear it at the NYCC 2015, find a member of the InvestComics team and you will get to select a graded comic for you to keep.

This October (8th-11th) at the Javits Center in New York, InvestComics fans will seek out a member of the InvestComics team at the New York Comic Con 2015 (wearing their black wristband) in the greatest (and FIRST) comic book website manhunt ever; to win a graded comic book of their choice! Each day of the show will give fans 4 different days to win. Which means one wrist band equals four chances to win. The graded comics are listed below and are yours for the taking, but you’ll have to find us first amidst the drones of NYCC fans walking around!

IC BAND COMIC

Select One Of These Four

Amazing Spider-Man #11 (2015) Signed by Dan Slott. Graded by 9.2. Marvel Animation Variant.

Spawn #16 (1993) Signed by Greg Capullo. Graded 8.5 by.

George Perez’s Sirens #1 (2014) Signed by George Perez and April Hunter. Graded by 9.6.

Outcast #1 (2014) Graded by 9.6

Here’s how you participate: You can purchase your black InvestComics.com wristband at the website www.trendingpopculture.com for $1 each (plus shipping) AND at NYCC, more on that in a bit. Fans can purchase more than one wristband if they’d like. It doesn’t mean if you wear more bands you may find us better, it means you purchase more bands and give them to your friends to seek us out too! Wristbands will also be available at the NYCC for purchase for $1 each. InvestComics has partnered up with a few booths (maybe more, we’ll announce) at the show to carry the wristbands. They will be limited, so get there quickly if you need to purchase any. The booths will be; Comicxposure, Creature Entertainment, Cosmic Times, and Royal Collectables. Walk up to any of these booths and ask to buy a wristband for the InvestComics Manhunt Contest.

***The Comicxposure team says that if a fan purchases an InvestComics wristband at their booth, you will get $5 off any variant!

How to play: The InvestComics team will be at the show all four days; Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each day the Manhunt will begin at a different time. The coverage space equals anywhere INSIDE the NYCC.

Thursday October 8th: 4:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Friday October 9th: 5:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Saturday October 10th: 5:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Sunday October 11th: 4:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Once the clock strikes the particular time, the manhunt to find an InvestComics team member will begin. Each member will be wearing an official InvestComics t-shirt (like the one pictured below). Once a contestant finds a member, show us you are wearing your wristband, we will record the exact time (stop watches set together) and head back to base. We will call ahead to see if any other members are on the way back. If so, we will compare times to see who officially won the right to select their graded comic.

IC Crew

L-R Stan Lee, Jay Katz, Rafael Rosario, Greg Capullo, Taylor

 

 

 

 

 

 

As each Graded comic goes off the board we will send an alert via Social Media as to who won (The winners picture of course) and what comic they selected.

The Rules: As with every contest there must be rules.

  1. If you are caught trailing(following) us before the bell sounds on a particular day, you will be automatically disqualified and ineligible to participate in the contest on any given day(s) left.
  2. Once you choose a graded comic, your picture will be taken and blasted via social media. You cannot under any circumstance change your mind and want a different comic thereafter.
  3. You cannot win more than once. If you bought a band for a friend and they find us, then they get a picture and they can do with the graded comic as they wish (give it to you).
  4. The contest takes place ONLY inside the NYCC. Meaning if the time starts and you find an InvestComics team member outside the boundaries of the NYCC you cannot claim your prize.
  5. A claimant cannot claim their prize inside the press area or right outside of it.
  6. If a graded comic goes unclaimed, it will remain in the mix for a person to choose in the next phase (day). A person will not have an option of taking two comics.
  7. No affiliate or team member of InvestComics is eligible in this contest. This includes any involvement of parties in this contest.

*InvestComics reserves the right to alter the contest in any way from now until the dates of the actual show.

*We reserve the right to cancel the contest at any given time in which each participate will be refunded their monies spent in the contest.

*Cosmic Times, Comicxposure, Creature Entertainment, and Royal Collectables will possess absolutely no graded comics in this contest at their booths. They do not have any involvement/affiliation with InvestComics and nor are they responsible whatsoever of anything pertaining to the contest. Their main and only priority is to provide an outlet to purchase an InvestComics.com wristband. Any person(s) giving any sort of grievance to any of these companies of any kind will be automatically disqualified.

These articles focus on comics that no one is talking about or speculating on anymore. Sometimes for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but that said these are comics that have been long forgotten and simply not thought of anymore. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down and worth some extra cash in the aftermarket, but isn’t the hunt fun too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red links provided in this article or comic cover, that’s if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Or again? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now

 

Quasar #1 (1989) Mark Gruewald writes. Origin of Quasar. Last 60 issues.

Pitt #1 (1993) Dale Keown pencils, cover art. 20 issues. This would be a fantastic movie one day if ever made.

Iceman #1 (1984) Four issue mini-series. J.M. DeMatteis writes, Alan Kupperburg pencils. Mike Zeck/John Beatty covers. Lots of creative firepower here.

Love and Rockets (1982) This critically acclaimed series is often forgotten. Fantagraphics Books. The Hernandez brothers brought a different way of comic book reading and vibe. They were way ahead of their time. The series was nominated for multiple awards throughout its 50 issue run. An ultra rare B&W cover (number one) is a hard get.

Grim Jack #1 (1984) The creative team of John Ostrander (writer) and Timothy Truman absolutely killed it here in the first 19 issues. John went on to write the rest of the series with various artist at the helm and continued to give comic book readers a great read month after month. The series lasted 80 issues.

Starriors (1984) This long forgotten four issue series was a fun read back in the day. Written by Louise Simonson, art by Michael Chen, and all covers by Bill Sienkiewicz. Probably just a matter of time before the Starriors make a comeback.

Elementals #1 (1984) Talk about a great series. This team was Comico’s version of the X-Men. The first 25 issues; written, penciled, and cover art (most) by Bill Willingham. The series ended after 29 issues. The Elementals first appeared in Justice Machine Annual #1 (1983) Texas Comics. Bill Reinhold penciled and Michael Golden provided the cover. The Elementals were fabulous.

Another slow week for the speculator. This means, as it always does, time to hit those bins hard, and scour the walls at your local shop for that gem.

Not too much coming out of a relatively quiet Thursday from the San Diego Comic Con. A couple of things; DC’s Vertigo imprint announced 12 new titles coming this fall, Hasbro’s Stormtrooper figure (the black series) caused near riots, and Image’s Invincible should have a video game/cartoon or something going by next year. Click the red link to buy the first full appearance of Invincible right now. We await several things from SDCC 2015. A possible full trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a look at the Justice League team together, plus a surprise was announced that includes Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Image Comics’ Outcast trailer, Marvel news, Valiant Entertainment news, and whatever else we aren’t expecting! Be sure to stick with the InvestComics social media for possible tidbits on some key comics regarding the show.

Harley Quinn #18 features an appearance by Captain Strong. His last known appearance was in 1986. Welcome back Captain! The neat cover here actually not only pays homage to a 1973 cover, but it also happens to be the first appearance too. Action Comics #421 (1973) is the first appearance of Captain Strong and the original cover to this weeks Harley book. Here’s the thing, a 9.6 on Ebay right now is only $200. Yes granted, we’re talking a fourth rate character, but still a better buy than a majority of these ridiculous variants at $200. InvestComics has always said to sell your moderns and buy those back issues. Well here’s your chance. A first appearance from 1973 that includes names like Curt Swan and Dick Giordano in it? 9.6 for $200 no less? A no-brainer here.

Now let’s talk about another Captain arriving this Wednesday. Check out Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1. Looks like a fun book. It’s always great to see Captain Britain in a title isn’t it? A comic InvestComics has been recommending for years now; Marvel Team-Up #65 (1978). It’s the U.S. Debut of Captain Britain. A comic written by Chris Claremont, drawn by John Byrne, and a cover from George Perez/Joe Sinnott. We recommended this comic when it was a $1 book for years. Now it seems to have climbed a bit from that $1 bid. Should have listened! Seriously though, what is not to love about this comic? And this also applies to the Defenders as well. Their first appearance; Marvel Feature #1 (1971). We recommended at $50. Should have listened!

While we eagerly await possible news coming from the Valiant Entertainment group at SDCC, we can look forward to Book of Death #1 this Wednesday. Valiant will start their all new event saga right here. Written by Robert Venditti, art by Doug Braithewaite and Robert Gill. Yes a hit for sure brewing here. Looking forward to a great read.
