Unnecessary meltdown alert. Expect the fanboy uproar to continue this week; Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 comes out. No reason to mention this comic other than the fact it gets fanboys in a tizzy about Cap playing on the Hydra team and it’s just going to get a lot worse before things will eventually turn around. Shhhh….don’t tell that nerd that continues to boycott Marvel over the travesty of Cap being a bad guy that their pain and suffering will not be a permanent thing . That nerd thinks Cap will be like this forever and ever instead of reading a ‘story’. Get a hold of yourself and put your big boy pants on.

Baby Groot is a hit in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, so what is Marvel Comics to do?! Give Baby Groot his own comic! I Am Groot #1. Baby Groot’s first ‘full appearance’ cam in Groot #5 (2015). Writer Christopher Hastings and art by Flaviano on I Am Groot #1 .
Fans of the Scarlet Spider are in for a treat this Wednesday. Marvel is promising some big storytelling in Ben Reilly The Scarlet Spider #2. Peter David writes, art by Mark Bagley.

We guess the obvious elephant in the room this week has to be Venom #150. (First and foremost, we love the cover, we love what Mark Bagley did here, this is NOT a slight on him at ALL). What’s not so obvious is the super-duper ‘Mark Bagley remastered sketch variant’. Sounds so fancy when they add all of those extra words right? Remastered? Really? Umm, okay. Anyway, this ‘remastered’ sketch variant will cost, ready for this? Sitting down? It will cost…..for a brand new comic out this Wednesday…..ready?…….How about $2000? Hahahaha! No, we’re not kidding, that’s not a typo. 2K for a brand new A-mazing Venom story! (insert sarcasm). This is so absurd that we almost cannot believe it. So maybe you can drop $5.99 instead and get the same amazing Eddie Brock ‘returns’ story. 2K? Here’s what you can do with 2K, you can get the first appearance of Venom (Eddie Brock!), Deathstroke and Deadpool and still have money left to buy this $5.99 book. 2K, wow, just wow. What a waste of money. The audacity to charge so much money on a new comic because it’s so ‘rare’ and ‘remastered’. Nonsense. Will any? Most of the 2K go towards a charity? A good cause? No? Then it’s flat out nonsense.

Action Comics #980 features Suicide Squad and oh yes Harley Quinn on the cover. So the answer is yes, that Gary Frank variant will probably sell out.

Every  week before new comic book day, here are the Top 5 NEW comics to speculate/read from this Wednesday. This list is pulled straight from the latest (weekly) InvestComics Hot Picks article. Hot Picks Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #431 and new comics coming this Wednesday 7/6/16.

Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading. Go back to the other places selling you the farm. This is NOT the place for you. We’re here to have fun and not lie to you. Thank you and enjoy!

Amazing Spider-Man #15 – We see a possible sign as to why this comic is still on the board. A month a ago, actually a week ago, this comic would have sold out in a hurry. Maybe there is a larger print run here. If not, there could be that proverbial wall that’s arrived within the speculation market. Maybe, just maybe Marvel comics has gone to the well too many times here. Gwenpool, Spider-Gwen, and now Mary Jane throws on the Iron Spider-Armor. It’s possible speculators are done with the female character gimmick……for now. That can all change in a snap, so do not sleep on the new Mary Jane Iron Spidey or anything else just yet! The J. Scott Campbell and Michael Turner variants are commanding some high aftermarket prices on Ebay already. Click the comic or the red link and see for yourself.

Justice League Rebirth #1 – The same applies here as the above. A sell-out here was almost a certainty. Let us remind you, both of these comics can sell out anyway, but we’re talking before Wednesday’s new comic day. Bryan Hitch (artist/writer) will deliver the goods on this comic, so definitely get your read on.

Batman #2 – Without hesitation we will announce a Gotham, Gotham Girl team-up book or solo books in the future (as we have announced a Gwenpool and Spider-Gwen team-up to appear in the Deadpool/Spider-Man series. Boy will that turn the heads of the speculators). Get in on the ground floor with these new characters now before you’re possibly paying triple cover price in the aftermarket for early issues of Batman Rebirth.

Walking Dead #156 – A big story line in Image Comics’ flagship title is not sold out? Hmm…..Walking Dead fans were put on alert from InvestComics on Thursday regarding a major plot twist/change happening in this title. Has Walking Dead finally reached that point of interest waning a bit? Again, it could sell out eventually, but not as of right now.

Kim & Kim #1 – A new Black Mask comic. Watch it disappear of the shelf. If not, who cares? They put out interesting titles!

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: All-Star Comics #58 (1976) graded 8.0. Here is a beauty that was just graded a few months ago and is up for a buy it now price of only $94.99. For those of you who don’t know, this comic is special because it holds the first appearance of Power Girl. Power Girl is a very relevant player within the DC Universe, so this is a nice grade at a nice price. If you’re in the market for a nice Bronze Age first appearance, this is it.

Almost every week there is one book that stands alone as a book to truly speculate on. We say “almost” because sometimes there are weeks that go by without that one book. This week we have that ONE book. Amazing Spider-Man #15 gets the honors as the InvestComics Hot Pick of the week. Marvel has seen success beyond their dreams sticking Gwen in a Deadpool like costume. Now it’s time to get Mary Jane into one. This costume however is one we’re all very familiar with. How about the Iron Spider Armor? Yes the same armor Stark made for Peter back in Civil War #3 (2006). It’s been 10 years since fans absolutely drooled over the late Michael Turner variant cover of Spider-Man donning his new threads. Peter did however first wear the Iron Spider Armor in Amazing Spider-Man #529 (2006). It’s that Civil War issue that still gets lots of attention till this day. This time around, Alex Ross takes care of the beautiful Amazing Spider-Man #15 cover with Mary Jane donning the new(old) threads. The J. Scott Campbell variant is sold out and it’s a beauty too! Do yourself a solid and buy the new Amazing Spider-Man issue this Wednesday.

The new Silver Surfer #5 promises something big and that cover probably has someone in there you know.
The realism in Esad Ribic’s work is astounding. Check out the Civil War II Kingpin #1 variant cover.

DC Comics;
Justice League Rebirth #1. Bryan Hitch – writer/artist. New beginnings for our favorite DC team.
DC Rebirth has really hit its stride. Despite all of the fanboys whining, they’re buying these new comics up. So much so that second and third printings are the norm for the publisher. We informed readers that the new Batman would be one to watch because of the intro of two new characters, although already first appearing in DC Universe: Rebirth #1. It sold out very quick and now Batman #2 hits this Wednesday. DC knows that readers are very interested in the new players, so they put them on the cover for the second issue in a row, displaying them as Batman ‘God’ like. The new characters ‘Gotham’ and ‘Gotham Girl’ will probably spin into their own series in the not too distant future, so we suggest you get on these early issues of their first arc/appearances.

Very much like the fanboy reaction to Rebirth, those same knuckleheads are complaining about DC’s revamping of the Hanna-Barbera line. Making it more realistic,grown-up, humanizing….today. We already covered the ridiculous notion that everything is so sacred within the comic book industry when Future Quest and Scobby-Doo came out. We’ll do it once again in case some may have forgotten. Feel free to pass this advice to a fanboy you may know. Nothing is sacred anymore. Money is more important in today’s society, therefore nothing is off limits. We know it’s pretty harsh to hear that, but it’s the truth. The sooner you except this, the sooner the whining and complaining will subside. Your cries are falling on deaf ears, DC or any comic company making tons of dough does not care what you feel about Fred Flintstone and what that cartoon meant to you as a child. They do however care about that yacht payment. If you’re one of these banana’s screaming about the sacred books of The Flintstones, remember you have comics dating all the way back to 1961 you can choose from to read(?). Are you really reading Flintstones comics as an adult though? Probably not, so how does this affect you again? Oh, yes yes you throw the “I have kids! How dare they do this! How are my kids supposed to know of the REAL Flintsones?!”card. Again, you there are Flintstones comics available from every decade since 1961. Relax, they’ll know if you try hard enough. If you want Captain America or Superman back in their red underwear costumes, go make your own movie. Harsh reality is that times have changed and if you do not change with them, you’re the heel. Money drives in 2016, not nostalgia. Nostalgia doesn’t play the mortgage, light bill, car payment, etc. The ‘bottom line’ is what drives business. So with that mindset, trying new things or tweaking old things is the new way, enter Flintstones #1. All of the new Hanna-Barbera titles will feature creative superstars. This new series will have Mark Russell on writing duties and Steve Pugh on pencils. So as a comic fan we are all in here! As a speculative fan, well that’s a bit different. Who’s to say the new Flintstones comic doesn’t revitalize the franchise and drive the market up? Not likely, but could happen. There isn’t much of a market for back issue Flintstones comics nor was there a demand for it, so thinking that one of the seven or so variants will retain or gain monetary value is more likely to not happen than to happen. Which by the way, the Ivan Reid selfie variant cover is fantastic. We look forward to reading this comic and so should you!

Here are some fantastic indie comics headed your way!
Story line alert! A possible MAJOR twist coming in Walking Dead #156.
With much success comes many copycats. InvestComics knows this all too well regarding our site, but we’re talking about the recent influx of the female comic character and its success rate. Marvel continues to produce a new female character at an alarming rate. Their success, most of the time sets the precedence for the rest of the industry. Dark Horse jumps into the game with Bounty #1. Written by Kurtis Wiebe and drawn by Mindy Lee.
Remember when the Lone Ranger was a hot book a few years back? Man we wonder what happened to all of those who went full tilt and bought those variants at premium prices. Anyway, readers should be happy to know that The Lone Ranger will be coming back this week…….with company. Not Tonto, Lone Ranger Green Hornet #1.

Empress #1 – This “Saga” like comic from Mark Millar will be sold out in no time. Watch for this Marvel imprint from Icon to take off. One of the key components to its success will be that it has to be consistent on its release. Millar’s Nemesis, also from Icon, was a semi-success, but lost many fans because of delays. It could have been a bigger book (should have been), but delays will kill things fast. Empress + on time = success.

Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 – Almost every week InvestComics preaches the gospel about Star Wars comics from Marvel. We say to buy them because they are fantastic reads and for the possible first appearance that may explode at any time. This week we have a character from the latest Star Wars movie making their first appearance in a Star Wars comic. What more do you want here? Okay, maybe have your wife/girlfriend or maybe read it with your kid? That would be cool too.

Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 – Darkseid’s daughter, Grail, will be making her indelible mark within the DC universe this Wednesday. DC might be priming her for bigger things to come. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #418 for more info on this and about Grail’s first appearance.

Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1 – One of DC’s all time greatest artist will grace us with his presence in this book. Jim Lee will pencil and do the cover art here. What more do you need? Refer back to the new Star Wars comic if you need more answers on that.

Superman #51 – A new story line begins; Super League. Be on the lookout for possible new villains or heroes in this epic Superman crossover event. We’ll probably say “told you so!”

Showcase #75

Click To Buy Now

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details)

IC 100 Club Pick: Showcase #75 (1968) 7.0. This comic represents the first appearance and origin of Hawk and Dove. Story, cover and interior art from the legendary man himself, Steve Ditko. A 7.0 grade for only $90, with FREE shipping, gets this beauty in your hands. This a must in your collection.

Look for writer Mark Millar to turn things upside down with the debut of Empress #1 from Marvel’s imprint Icon. It’s already getting billed as Marvel Comics version of “Saga”. And we all know how Saga turned out. Mark will introduce fans to a whole new sci-fi world. Hollywood LOVES Mark Millar and we wonder if Marvel Studios would ever pick this up and run with it. Who knows? It could happen. Either way, this is an introduction comic in the vein of Saga, one to watch for here! This will be big.

The new Black Panther series makes its debut this week; Black Panther Vol 6 #1. The longest running Black Panther series lasted 62 issues. Many limited series, one shots, and team-up books over the span of six volumes for the character. Will this series ever make past 62 issues? We’ll see. But the first issue here is accompanied by an abundance of variants to choose from. Pointless, and the need for 13 different covers (at last count, probably more) is a bit excessive. The creative team makes for a must get though. Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Brian Stelfreeze will bring fans back again and again.

Marvel will introduce a new Star Wars character into their library. Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 will have the first comic book appearance of Poe Dameron. Poe appeared in the latest Star Wars flick and now he makes his way into the funnies. Regular InvestComics readers know how we feel about the Star Wars comics. Buy them all! This one here is so obvious that if you miss it, shame on you! Besides Empress #1, this is the other big Marvel book this week.

This week’s Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 will focus on Darkseid’s daughter Grail. A book simmering in the back issue bins on Ebay is Justice League #40 (2015), the first appearance of Darkseid’s daughter Grail. With DC maybe headed towards a Darkseid movie appearance, who’s to say they won’t take a page out of Marvel’s film franchise and include his daughter, a’la Marvel’s Nebula (Thanos). Right now JL #40 might be a gimme at $15….the same price as some worthless variant this week. Maybe getting Justice League #40 instead of a pretty cover makes more sense. Just saying.
There are plenty of DC comic covers by John Romita Jr. to choose from this week. DC is proud to have John Romita Jr. on their side instead of those “other guys”. Some may say or think this is the first time John is playing for the other side, but fans of InvestComics know we’re going to do our research! John Romita Jr. first drew some DC characters back in 1994. Not just “any” characters, he penciled Batman, Robin, Joker, among some others from the DCU. The comic was Batman/Punisher: Deadly Knights. Art by John Romita Jr. and written by Chuck Dixon. John also contributed to the awesome cover. Great comic, great story, Romita Jr.’s first DC work.

While on topic regarding DC’s past history. Bloodlines #1 debuts with writer J.T. Krul and artist Kenneth Marion at the helm. Bloodlines was a huge crossover storyline that took almost 6 months to hammer out back in 1993, spanning from August to December. The very first Bloodlines book was Lobo Annual #1 Bloodlines Outbreak. This comic introduced the Bloodlines Parasites.

Mr. Jim Lee will provide artwork for this week’s winner of the longest comic book title; Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1. Yes, THE Jim Lee will be penciling this comic. The Lee sketch cover is already sold out.

Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #7 features the first appearance of the NEW Nightwing.
It looks like Superman #51 could possibly introduce some new characters within its major new storyline crossing over all of the Superman titles; Super League Part 1 begins here. Keep an eye out on this series for new characters and villains.
Green Arrow will battle Deathstroke in Green Arrow #51. Fantastic covers from Patrick Zircher (regular cover) and John Romita Jr. (variant).

Grizzly Shark #1 from Image Comics looks interesting. Grizzly Shark first appeared in Sea Bear and Grizzly Shark #1 (2010). This Origin debut comic is written by Robert Kirkman. Ever heard of him? Art from the 2010 and 2016 Shark books; Ryan Ottley.
A new Think Tank series will start this Wednesday; Think Tank #1 (Image Comics). The original series started in 2012; Think Tank #1.
