Top 5 Hot Picks #118

Every week before new comic book day InvestComics gives fans our Top 5 Hot Picks for new comics coming out on Wednesday. This list is pulled straight from the latest (weekly) InvestComics Hot Picks article. Hot Picks Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #480 and new comics coming this Wednesday 6/21/17.

Click This Image To Read This Week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #480

Click on the RED links/images or comic covers to buy/bid right now from ALL available Ebay sellers.

September Mourning #1 – This Image Comic is sold out at the distributor. Writers Mariah McCourt – Emily Lazar. Art by Sumeyye Kesgin. Marc Silvestri cover.
Crosswind #1 – Writer Gail Simone and artist Cat Staggs bring this unique story where a ‘slick and ruthless hitman’ and a ‘downtrodden Seattle housewife’ somehow trade their bodies/minds/souls with each other. Gail Simone will deliver….as she always does.
Batman #24 – A second print arrives as a third print waits in the wings. The cover gives the entire element of surprise away if you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what’s going on.
Weapons of Mutant Destruction #1 – We probably jumped the gun prematurely in out Hot Picks #480 post regarding claws on the Hulk debuting. It probably doesn’t happen right away. It’s probably a big build up, but that said, it’s still a cool story to follow up to that point we see a very angry Hulk with Wolverine claws. Writer Greg Pak knows how to tell a Hulk tale (see Planet Hulk).  
Spider-Man 2099 #24 – A new Spider-Man debuts.

Daredevil Graded Comics On Ebay – All Ebay Sellers – Buy/Bid Now – Click Image

Fans love number one comics and the big two know it. Another restart Spidey series. Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #1, written by Chip Zdarsky and art by Adam Kubert. This series promises to bring aboard new characters, so be on alert for any breakouts. The Adam Kubert cover draws a great comparison to DC’s The Man Of Steel #1 John Byrne cover.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Staying on topic about Spidey, Spider-Man 2099 #24 will introduce a new Spider-Man. Brought to us by writer Peter David and artist Will Sliney.
When Marvel teased the cover to Weapons of Mutant Destruction #1 with the Hulk and his adamantium claws a while back, fanboys lost their minds. Now the fanboys and comic fans will finally get to read what writer Greg Pak will be bringing to the table this Wednesday. The anticipation is high and Greg Pak is a very reliable deliverer of a solid story, so we’re confident we’ll all be extremely satisfied after we read it. The art by Mahmad A. Asrar helps the cause here too.

Skottie Young Graded Comics On Ebay – All Ebay Sellers – Buy/Bid Now – Click

Do you know that Marvel writer Charles Soule is a lawyer in real life? Like a real life bonafide lawyer guy, but he writes funny books instead. Talk about a love for your craft. Anyway, it’s only fitting that he writes a comic about a blind vigilante super-hero lawyer. Writer Charles Soule has been turning the Daredevil series on its proverbial head. If you haven’t caught this monthly, you really need to check it out. This Wednesday in Daredevil #22, Charles puts Matt Murdock on the witness stand. Read the lawyer verbiage fly around from the pen (computer finger type) and the mouth of Matt Murdock as he’s sworn in.

Secret Empire: Brave New World #2 introduces the All-New Patriot.
Darth Vader #2 continues to follow Anakin Skywalker in this ‘Year One’ type story for the beloved villain. Anakin begins to learn the way of the Order from Palpatine; aka Darth Sidious. Palpatine’s first appearance is shared by Boba Fett’s first comic appearance in Star Wars #42, 37 years ago.

Two comic covers we’d like to point out that caught our attention. Doctor Strange #22 cover from Chris Bachalo borrows from Skottie Young’s What If? Venom/Deadpool from 2011. Russel Dauterman with his homage cover on The Mighty Thor #20 to Walt Simsonson’s Thor #337 from 1983. We know these covers have been done time and time again, especially the Thor cover, but it’s still nice to see so many artists offering their take at classics and always recognizing the original artist in that way.
More Mary Jane covers this week from Marvel. Four of them appear in this article.

InvestComics Spider-Man Checklist – #1 of 2 – Click Image

Batman #24 sold out in a hurry last week once the media spread the news regarding the major plotline that took place inside the pages. If you don’t know what exactly took place, then maybe you shouldn’t look at the second print cover coming out this week. Major spoiler alert right there…..on the cover. The comic only came out last week, so we hope you know by now, because if you don’t, you know now. With the second print cover will come Batman #25. The new storyline ‘The War of Jokes and Riddles’ part one. Do the major events from last issue have a tie-in somehow? We have to wait and see.

DC releases more Looney Tunes team-up craziness this week. We like this match-up; Lobo Road Runner #1. We’re guessing the Road Runner makes a fool of Lobo time and time again. Too bad Lobo, you aren’t catching the Road Runner. No one does.

Justice League United #15 will team 4 groups together for the first time in one book. Sgt. Rock, Enemy Ace, Creature Commandos, and OMAC. Great reading here!

Speaking of a great read, check out Superman American Alien #1. This comic will have writer Max Landis teaming with several of the industries superstars for a seven issue series chronicling Clark Kent as a youngster and then working all the way up to Superman. The series is said to be a look as we’ve never seen before, so we are excited. The first issue will be illustrated by Nick Dragotta of East of West. Fantastic Ryan Sook cover too.

Vertigo’s new mini-series; Slash and Burn #1 should be on your reading list this week.

Not too sure how the conservatives or politically correct will handle the title of the new Image Comic; The Goddamned #1. Writer Jason Aaron probably has a hit book here regardless of what anyone thinks. Jock supplies a cool variant.

Jason Latour (Spider-Gwen) will guest pencil and write Southern Bastards #12.

Miles Morales will join the All new all different Avengers #1. Lets see how he is as a full time team player. Written by Mark Waid and drawn by Adam Kubert. The Jim Cheung hip hop cover is our favorite. This series will do well.

All new Wolverine #1 will have X-23 as the main character. Her first appearance was in NYX #3 (2004). X-23 was hot for a while there a few years back. She cooled off and then she fell into obscurity. Not anymore! The regular cover and the hip hop variant are the best covers.

A lot of number one issues coming out this week. Here are some of the DC books first;

Batman Beyond #1, this will be volume 5 number one. You know what that means? Five different times collectors have seen a number one issue pop up from Batman Beyond. That’s a lot. It kind of waters down the “premiere #1” issue deal a bit. That said, it doesn’t stop the high priced 1999 issue.  Anyways, Batman Beyond’s first appearance was in Batman Beyond #1 (1999). Bizarro #1, here’s an all ages book. Good to see DC is trying to get the little guys/gals back into comic books. Bizarro first appears in Superboy #68 (1958). And very funny variant here by Kyle Baker. Another all ages comic from DC; Bat-Mite #1. Count this reader in! And speculators, for you; Detective Comics #267 (1959). That’s the first appearance of Bat-Mite. One more thing, the variant is sold out. Midnighter #1 What will come of this series exactly? Who knows, looks cool though. Midnighter first appeared in Stormwatch #4 (1997).Written by Warren Ellis. Back in the 80’s the Omega Men team was awesome. Can they revisit that awesomeness with Omega Men #1? We will find out. Their first appearance is in Green Lantern #141 (1981). George Perez cover. Fantastic first appearance to have in your collection. Wonder Woman Annual #1 Check out what “old face” from the past shows back up.

Here is a rundown of some of the Marvel number one titles coming out on Wednesday.

With the new Marvel Universe on the horizon, we get more number one issues than we can handle. Or maybe we can handle them. Most would opt to just chill hitting the restart button, but we have Marvel and DC really shaking things up lately. All that said, Peter Parker will feel the wrath of the Secret Wars too. No one is safe. A safe bet is however, if there is a Spider-Man number one issue coming out, there will be a bazillion variant covers. That is so for the Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 comic coming out this Wednesday. Marvel isn’t shy about these variant covers. Ten at last count. Probably more than that as you read this article. The standouts as far as variants go are; Pasqual Ferry, Adi Granov, and J. Scott Campbell. Yes they are all nice, but these are our favorites. Too many variants that will sell for an absorbent amount of monies and then taper off. It’s the same formula here. So what about the actual comic? The only thing that makes this or any crazy amount of variants worth chasing is if there is a major introduction (their daughter?) within the pages, otherwise what you have here is a bunch of hyperbole with no substance to sustain the pricing during the immediate aftermarket wave. So what about this daughter Peter and Mary have? Is this a new take on their lives? Certainly looks that way. Having a child in any relationship changes things a whole lot! Maybe that will be the sticking point on keeping this comic relevant 10 years from now. And from the looks of it, the daughter may possess some of daddy’s DNA down a few issues later. Are we surprised here really though? Lets see where Dan Slott and Adam Kubert bring us.

The popularity of a talking tree has reached epic proportions. Groot #1 gets its own series. Who would have ever thought that Tales To Astonish #13 (1960) would become an untouchable book? InvestComics of course that’s who! A year and a half before the Guardians of the Galaxy movie hit, InvestComics informed speculators to buy this book. Check out the article right HERE. This was even before the characters were announced to appear! These days it’s so high on the depth chart right now it’s insane. Does the book have anymore wiggle room (uptick) to warrant a profit if you’re a buyer? Possibly yes if you can somehow get a real good buy on one. Here’s why. Groot will appear in the next Guardians movie and possibly beyond to the Infinity Wars movies. The Avengers will need all the help they can get when it comes to dealing with Thanos in those movies, so it’s probably a safe bet that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be teaming up with the Avengers. So Groot could possibly appear in another 3 movies before all is said and done. Maybe the love affair with audiences gets Groot a solo movie? Who knows? Either way, all this means more upside for Tales to Astonish #13.

Armor Wars #1; This story originally ran back in Iron Man #225 (1987). The biggest difference between then and now is the Iron Gwen variant this Wednesday. Iron Gwen? Really? Future Imperfect #1 was an original story back in 1992. Writer Peter David, art/ink and cover art from George Perez. Peter David writes the story again this Wednesday, but pencils by Greg Land this time. Hulk extraordinaire artist Dale Keown lends a variant cover. The original X-Tinction storyline dates back to Uncanny X-Men #270 (1990). Jim Lee, Chris Claremont, and Scott Williams were all over this. Marvel brings back the story 25 years later in X-Tinction Agenda #1 with lots of variants and a beautiful Mike Deodato Jr. variant. Skottie Young fans rejoice, Skottie writes and pencils this new series based on the little marvel universe. Giant Size Little Marvel #1 will be a guaranteed fun time.

The next big death issue has arrived speculators. G.I. Joe #214 will be providing the aftermarket with some serious buzz. Here is the thing, do not hold onto this comic too long or you will miss the top of the sell here. Be mindful of the market, time it correctly, if you don’t you will be left holding a comic with a decreased value and no demand. The hype will mostly likely be a short lived one. Snake Eyes is a big character in the G.I. Joe circles, not in popular culture. This isn’t a Captain America death where you see some dude you’ve never seen at your comic shop buying five copies. Although this is more of a G.I Joe/comic book speculator book, it still will command attention. Be prepared, and be alert. 1 year from now this will be long forgotten. The story won’t be because it’s a fantastic one, it’s the hype that surrounds it right now.

Learn more about Darkseid’s daughter in Justice League #41 as the first part of the Darkseid War goes full throttle. And the introduction(s) of new villains may arrive in here. Be on top of this comic speculators! Great David Finch Joker variant too. DC has many “epic” things going on these days. Well, as does the “other guys” too, but this week sees the epic storyline “TRUTH” roll out in Action Comics #41. And oh yes, is that Superman’s new costume (Levi’s) on the cover? We forgot about that already. That’s not a good sign. That Green Arrow #41 Bill Sienkiewicz Joker variant is as stellar as is the Green Lantern #41 Joker variant by Ben Oliver.

InvestComics says this almost every week, but a reminder for the new readers coming on board; buy any of the new Star Wars comics. An introduction of any character sends the aftermarket into a frenzy and you stand to make a quick buck. Besides, the Star Wars comics are delivering some good stories anyway. Star Wars #6, Darth Vader #6 and Princess Leia #4 are due out.

As InvestComics has warned about Star Wars and new characters popping up, watch for the Secret Wars to do the same possibly. And what’s with Secret Wars #3 Dr. Gwendge variant cover? Yes, yes the Gwen craze that’s right. Has that not subsided some? Yet another female dominating character in the Marvel Universe; Superior Iron Man #9 sees Superior Iron Woman taking it to Stark. This intro can blow up quickly if the character has substance. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #6; the introduction of Girl Squirrel and the return of Hippo. Hippo first appeared in the ultra cool Dark Reign Sinister Spider-Man #1 (2009).

The amazing talent of Dan Parent gets all of the cover credits too. That’s the right way to end the run. And Broken World #1 from Boom Studios looks like a good story, one to check out.

Howard_the_Duck_1_InvestComicsSo what makes Detective Comics Endgame #1 more of a standout than Howard the Duck #1 this week? Why even compare them really? No reason, just because. Well maybe because Marvel is pushing this C list character down our throats with ten variants at last count? And the Detective book has one awesome regular cover. Of course the comic book collecting life isn’t all about cover though, right? It is in fact though the first appealing thing one sees, so the marketing must captivate the eye and sell it first. Make that person WANT to pick up that comic. So I ask the question, one sees all bazillion of the Howard the Duck #1 variants and then one sees the Detective Comics Endgame #1 sitting on the shelf. Besides your shop having your books displayed in alphabetical order, in which the first book you probably will see is the Batman book, which would you be so inclined to pick up and thumb through first? Maybe some do pick up the Howard book first, but the majority will probably gravitate towards that awesome Rafael Albuquerque cover for Detective Comics Endgame #1. Well that’s all about the outside, what about the inside? One book is about a Private Investigator that is a umm….a duck and the other is about a new group of teenagers kicking some as* in Gotham to save it from being overrun by Jokerized victims. Maybe you still like the Howard book. The Howard book will be a fun read though, so get it for at least that reason! Both are cool. So don’t get all hurt that I’m not that high on the Howard book. Speculation = opinion.

Detective_Comics_Endgame_1_InvestComics Avengers_195_InvestComics

Not that owning the Fear #19 (1976) book (first appearance of Howard the Duck) is a bad thing, but if you’re in the market to buy a good first appearance for $250 or $500 dollars, there are other books to seriously consider. Ask yourself this. Would Disney really want to jeopardize/replace the lure of Donald Duck with a wise cracking, cigar smoking duck? I highly doubt they want to throw Howard in our faces as the duck to really remember and constantly have questions from children to adults saying, “Is that Donald Duck?”. Um no. Disney would not want this. Why do you think there is no real talk about a cartoon or a movie pertaining to Howard? For this reason. Too close to Donald. Maybe someday Disney will bite the bullet and release a Howard cartoon or movie, but as for right now it’s not happening. Maybe a Howard the Duck comic book is a feeler to see what sort of attention it gets? Then maybe we’ll get some real news of something? This speculator doesn’t think we’ll see anything for some time. The Donald lure is way more important to Disney right now than destroying the very fabric of Disneyland or anything pertaining to Donald with people constantly mistaking Donald for Howard. By Avengers_196_InvestComicscomparison, will we ever see a nasty mouse character created within the Marvel U that looks very similar to the Big Mouse with an attitude and possible cigar? The short answer is no. Howard will stay where he is right now and Disney is very content with that. Buy Detective Comics Endgame #1, looks like a winner. (Not that many floating on Ebay right now. Click the link and get yours if you want it!). Story sounds good, good creative team, possible intro to a new team and that cover……

Instead of paying so much for a Fear #19 comic, why not check out who Ant-Man is dealing with in Ant-Man #3. Although Taskmaster is not in comparison to Howard as far as notability and pricing as far as first appearances go, his (cameo) in Avengers #195 from 1980 is a nice book. Recommended by InvestComics a few years ago when it was a $7 book, it has since climbed into a decent area and is still very affordable at this point. His first “full appearance” is in Avengers #196. Rumors surround Taskmaster as a possible movie appearance from time to time as does the possible breakout ability he has as well. Nothing of either end really….yet? Either way, InvestComics is still high on this comic after years of recommending it. Be sure to click the RED link to bounce over to Ebay (it’ll open in a new window, leaving your page right here!) to throw a bid down or a buy it now. A George Perez book with upside here. Be forewarned, various grades and pricing on Ebay for Avengers #195 are very sporadic.

Bloodshot_6_InvestComics Ninjak_1_InvestComicsDepending on how long you’ve been a speculator, you will remember the Valiant comics craze. Ask a seasoned veteran about the ridiculous Valiant pricing at one time and listen to how many people lost a tremendous amount of money in these books. Now flash to 2015 and you will see that the speculator just ain’t going for that again! Many new Valiant comics have gotten a new life (relaunched) on the label, but the back issue market for these books from which these characters first appeared have done nil. So with that, Ninjak #1 will reappear in his own title. Ninjak first appeared in Bloodshot #6 back in 1993. If you click the red link here, that Bloodshot #6 (see the red link again!) can be yours, a NM for only $1.79. My my, how times have changed.

As there is most weeks, there is always an Image Comic to keep an eye out on. This week it’s Southern Cross #1. (Only 10 of these now on Ebay with a couple of variants). An interesting story with only one variant cover to show for. The variant is from Tula Lotay. She’s been around a couple of years, but is making her presence known. Watch for this newbie as she comes up the ranks with the Babs Tarr’s, Stacey Lee’s, Fiona Staples‘ of the world. Notice a trend here? Just saying. And very awesome.

Arkham_Knight_1.InvestComicsA video game adaptation comics really surmount to much within the aftermarket, but they are still great nonetheless. Check out the new Batman Arkham Knight #1 as it leads up to the new video game release. The Gary Frank variant is sold out already. It is a beauty too! Get it on Ebay right now if you want! That Red Link! Helping everyone out here!

The Disney spiteful demise of the Fantastic Four comic is almost here. The next to last issue promises lots of cool things. Fantastic Four #644; the end is near.

CLICK the RED Links and go straight to Ebay.Buy or Bid on the comics right now within this article!

Spider-Gwen will continue her “torrid” pace of popularity this week. Will number two sell out too? How long will the madness for Edge of Spider-Verse #2 continue for? (Insert sarcasm here) Only 230 listings at the present moment. Will Spider-Gwen be the next Harley? Will she be the Howard the Duck? Time will tell! And speaking of Spider-Verse, Amazing Spider-Man #16 name drops Spider-Verse within its solicit this week. Anything going to pop up here?Will Marvel ever let Spider-Verse go already? Spidey also has Amazing Spider-Man Special #1 coming out. Cool read here, nice Adam Kubert variant and who knows what can pop up here too?

Check out the pages of Ms. Marvel #13, may have an intro. Cool book anyways.

A few number one issues to definitely check out this week. Surface #1 from Image Comics. Spawn fans rejoice, Spawn Resurrection #1 will not only be a new beginning, but a Todd McFarlane variant will come along for the ride. The wildly successful Sixth Gun will begin anew with Sixth Gun Dust to Dust #1. Creator Cullen Bunn of this series also has another book coming this week; Hellbreak #1. Great stuff here. Bill and Ted’s Most Triumphant Return #1 from Boom Studios is a fun book. Bill and Ted originally made their comic book debut in 1989’s Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure Movie Adaptation #1 from DC Comics.

Postal #2 from Image hits this week with a very cool variant. Postal #1 showed some nice sales. Will the series pick up some more steam?

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 8/6/14

See Guardians of the Galaxy? Fun movie! No worries, no spoilers here, just some money to be made.

There are total gimmie’s within the speculation market this week. First you have Spread (2014 Image) #2. Spread #1 (InvestComics recommended) sold out very quickly and issue number two is sold out already as well. Nailbiter #1 was also recommended by InvestComics and the series continues to sell out with Nailbiter (2014 Image) #4 already empty on the warehouse shelf. Be sure to stay very close to this series. And another recommendation from IC is showing no signs of slowing down; Enormous (2014) Ongoing #2. Imperial (2014 Image) #1 also looks to be headed down to the sold out road.

[scrollGallery id=364]

Genius (2014 Image) #1 will be sold out by new release day. Genius was originally a Top Cow Pilot Season book back in 2008. Now it’s back and sold out.

ComixTribe had a big hit on their hands with Epic on Free comic book day. The number one issue sold out and now Epic (2013 ComixTribe) #2 looks to be headed in that same direction. In order for this series to succeed, and it probably will, is to release the comic on time with no delays. The story and character(s) are already captivating. Being on time and great story telling usually equates to success, that goes with many comic titles, but Epic will be a special comic if the longevity of an on time comic can sustain itself. On time, longevity equals a good book to get in on the ground floor here.

Spider-Verse will officially start this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #32. If by some reason you missed the most comprehensive Spider-Verse/Spider-Man checklist on the planet earth, then you should really check out; InvestComics: The Spider-Verse/Spider-Man Checklist. It’s a must checklist for any collector. With that said, Adam Kubert will be contributing to the new Superior Spider-Man book with a Spidey story. One of Adam’s first Spidey work came in 1995; Spider-Man Holiday Special #1.

Moon Knight (2014 5th Series) #6 will feature the New Black Spectre. The original Black Spectre first appeared in Moon Knight #25 (1982). And as a side note. InvestComics has been bullish on Moon Knight for years now. We are still bullish.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

Teen Titans #44 (2)Teen Titans #44 (1)Welcome to the 300th InvestComics Hot Picks article. Although Ratchet City Comics and InvestComics didn’t have a chance to give away the awesome Star Wars signature series 9.8 (signed by Brian Wood) graded comic, we’re going to try for another plateau. This time If we can reach 2000 likes by January 20th (my birthday), the payoff will be a signed Tales of the Teen Titans #44 by George Perez! Yes that’s right, the first appearance of Nightwing signed by George Perez can be yours if we get to 2000 likes by January 20 2014. All those who have already shared the InvestComics page are already eligible, we encourage everyone else to share the InvestComics Facebook page to make this happen. Pictured to the right are photos of the actual comic and George Perez holding the book you could win! So it’s my birthday, but I’m in a giving mood! Let’s get to 2000!

A question was recently posted on the all new InvestComics Facebook page: Investing in Comic books 101. The best holiday investment comic of all time? Samurai Santa #1? Yes or No?

InvestComics Hot PicksNew Release Comics on 12/25/13

Ho ho ho! Variant comics are plentiful this week!

[scrollGallery id=326]

So what will Santa bring to the new comic book releases this week? One thing Marvel Comics will be sending looks a lot like 19 variants on one new release. Yes, no mistype there folks, 19 variants to accompany the release of Avengers (2012 5th Series) #24.1. What gives here Marvel? Is this really necessary?? Well from a pure business point it totally is. The money grab is in and guess what? You can play a part in the money grab too! It will cost you to lay out a few bucks, but the return might be worth it. There are three grand prize variants to check out on new comic day when it comes to “Rouge Planet #1”. Simone Bianchi holds two of these cards. There is an extremely rare incentive sketch cover for about $75 from Simone. The second grand prize is the Agustin Alessio incentive variant cover. A $50 price tag on that one. And the last variant goes back to Simone. It’s the color version of his sketch cover. That one will set you back only $35. Get any of these signed and graded a 9.8 or higher, you’ll be looking at a decent return.

Wolverine: The Origin #1 in 2001 was a rousing success. So now 12 years later we get Origin II (2013) #1. Haven’t we had enough of the origin stories with Wolverine already? Seems every four months a new revelation comes forth about Wolverines past. “Is Wolverine man or beast?” Yes that’s what the solicitation reads. Haven’t we been down this road before? Okay, enough picking on the Canadian eh. There are two variants the collector should get their hands on here. The first being Adam Kubert’s incentive sketch cover ($75) and the second is from Salvador Larroca ($35). Follow the same rules as previous stated for the Avengers book.

The last of our variant coverage this week deals with Forever Evil (2013 DC) #4. There are two beauties here; a $20 Deathstroke vs Lex Luthor variant and a super duper rare David Finch incentive sketch cover for $160. Both of these variants totally rock! Rules apply as previously mentioned to maximize your dollar on these variants as well.

A very exciting team-up will be occurring for anime fans this week. Robotech Voltron (2013 Dynamite) #1. For anime fans, I’m quite sure they already know the first time Robotech and Voltron hit the comic scene, but for those who may not know here’s the scoop. Voltron’s first comic book came in Voltron #1 (Modern Comics) in 1984. Robotech first came onto the comic book scene in DC’s Sampler #3 in January of 1984 as Robotech Defenders. The comic was an obvious sampler of comics that were to come out via the DC Comics line. The actual full length Robotech Defenders comic book didn’t debut until January 1985. So with that, Comico was the first to actually have a Robotech comic with Robotech The Macross Saga #1 in December of 1984. That’s the lowdown and according to our awesome Terry Hoknes here at InvestComics, Robotech Voltron #1 is about to be sold out.

And another almost sold out comic this week to check out; Deceivers (2013 Boom) #1.

Happy holiday’s. Invest wisely.

Nothing Lasts Forever – Marvel Unveils INFINITY #1 Cover

This August, the Marvel Universe prepares for the biggest battle it’s ever faced – but first, Marvel is proud to unveil the jaw dropping main cover to Infinity #1 by Adam Kubert! Infinity, the six part blockbuster comic event of the summer, brought to you by the star studded creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena & Dustin Weaver, takes fans to every corner of the Marvel Universe, and beyond! Earth has been marked as an “Avengers World”, protected by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more from the deadliest threats facing humanity. A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos…because only with a united AvengersUniverse is there any chance of survival!

With our heroes at the other end of the universe, who is left to protect Earth? Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. The greatest threat to the Mad Titan’s work—and perhaps the universe’s greatest hope—is something he created leaving no world safe. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But can the fearsome leader of a race hated and feared by his world,  lead his people against Thanos? If they fall, so does the Earth—and the entire universe with it.

Every issue of Infinity includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on theMarvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue ofInfinity features special augmented reality content available exclusive through theMarvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

The Biggest Heroes.  The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Sacrifices. This is Marvel’sINFINITY.
