Deathstroke

InvestComics Deathstroke Checklist – Click The Image

That’s a whole lot of new storylines beginning right? Putting aside all of the part one stories coming from DC this week, a new number one issue, Justice League Of America Rebirth #1 debuts. Steve Orlando writes, Ivan Reis draws. A crazy Justice League team this time around. Lobo, Black Canary, Atom, Killer Frost, The Ray, and of course Batman. That’s an odd bunch right?

A nice touch with the Star Wars Doctor Aphra #4 40th anniversary variant cover. Artist Pepe Larraz offers Star Wars fans a still from the very first Star Wars movie from 1977 of the Leia hologram scene.
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #17 makes it to the InvestComics Hot Picks list. We’ve always thought the character is a bit overrated due to too much speculation around a possible appearance either on television or film. Of course this news (from a while ago) has not really come to fruition (yet?), but because of many collectors are holding into this news, her first appearance has not really come down to correct levels. That all said, always a vague solicit for this comic each month. A “cool way” to stay hip we guess. Maybe a new adversary debuts in this issue, but we do know that Erica Henderson’s cover pays homage to Superman #1 (1939). Remember to click these red links or comic covers to buy/bid on the comics (all available Ebay sellers) we tell you about!
Kingpin will get his own ongoing series this Wednesday; Kingpin #1. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Ben Torres deliver this debut issue. We all know Kingpin’s first appearance is in Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967), but he first appeared in a Daredevil comic in Daredevil #170 (1981). Writer/artist Frank Miller forever changed the Kingpin character from that point on.

Rom #62 (1985) – Steve Ditko art. Michael Zeck cover.
Rom #65 (1985) – Steve Ditko pencils ALL of these characters; Avengers, X-Men, West Coast Avengers, Soviet Super Soldiers, Dynamic Defenders (which includes Valkyrie, Beast, Iceman, Gargoyle, Angel, and Moondragon), Captain Britain, and many more. This issue is a must have in your Steve Ditko collection.

Darth Vader #8 – Star Wars comics are and will be a hot item week after week, month after month. Is there an introduction this week within the pages here? Possibly, but make no mistake here, Star Wars comics will be desirable up until the new movie release in December and well beyond actually.

We Stand On Guard #2 – Oh Canada! Looks like something else is hot regarding Canada besides their hockey. Brian K Vaughan is the responsible party for this happening.

Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #3 – The story line here is well received. As is mostly anything Spider-Man. Check out the Comicxposure variant(s) here. The various variants are selling like hotcakes.

Bloodshot Reborn #5 – Although Valiant Entertainment brings readers excellent material on the inside of their books, they visually give us stimulation on the outside with their covers too. Take a look at the respect given to John Romita Sr.’s Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967).

Lobo Vol 3 #9 – The first appearance of Wyvern Cross.

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?

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 6/18/14

Important note here first:

ALL InvestComics material within the weekly Hot Picks is 100% authentic and original. If you see anything mentioned on the internet or on social media that is written here, it came from HERE. This article is from a pure speculation vantage point and is not researched, read about, and or borrowed from ANY website or social media outlet. Every thought, every recommendation, every prediction, every gain, every loss, everything is InvestComics. So when I inform you to buy up Namor comics a few months ago (In January – InvestComics Hot Picks #304), I had no idea that an article(s) would pop up regarding a possible Namor movie recently. Read the reasoning behind the speculation and you’ll understand that I am as authentic as they come. And then in the InvestComics #316 article it reads “…….Like Namor, yeah Namor. He’s going to be some sort of a factor. Be it now or in the not so distant future, but watch out for him. I’ve mentioned this before. This is a gut. Who knows…….?”  Namor was recommended a few more times after that and even before that too, so for those who ignored it, no biggie, you still have plenty of time before Marvel makes the official announcement whenever that may be (years).  You see, InvestComics is setting trends, breaking ground, making the “big guys”…….the “big” comic book websites take notice. Would they ever give credit where it’s due? No way. That would be too noble and unfortunately not everyone is as honest as I am. The aforementioned character is only a recent example of a plethora of characters I have speculated on and many, many of them have come to fruition, thus making some serious profits for speculators that have followed the website since its inception in 2005. More often than not these days there is another website or person taking credit from this article. Give kudos, give references, give the credit where it is due.

InvestComics is bucking the trend, setting the trend, altering the market if you will.  Even the latest Facebook group we are generating buzz – Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society) – right HERE. Speaking of buzz, we are on BuzzFeed, Yahoo, GPAnalysis (On site rss feed/Membership email blast), MyComicShop (weekly email blast), ComicWow, and countless others.

So what is the moral of this rant? Know that the source material you read week in and week out from THIS weekly article is coming from an ORIGINAL place; InvestComics. We truly are leading the way. And thanks to YOU.

Have you heard that Daredevil will be coming to a television screen near you soon? That’s if you’re buying into Netflix of course. And of course you knew about Daredevil, but what about his rouge gallery? He has a few you should definitely have those in your collection by now. Typhoid Mary is still affordable and that should without a doubt be picked up. She first appeared in Daredevil #254 (1988). On the more expensive side you can and should always buy Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967) whenever you have a chance. Never pass up the Kingpin’s first appearance. Especially since Marvel/Netflix just announced the person for that role on the television show. No matter really, Amazing Spidey #50 is a winner with or without that show coming on.  So then you have Daredevil (2014 4th Series) #4 coming out this week. This issue will focus on the all new villain The Owl. This villain will probably and most likely appear on the Netflix show as well. Check out the Owl’s first appearance in Daredevil #3 (1964). The new Daredevil issue this Wednesday will also bring Foggy Nelson into the equation. Will Foggy be a part of the new show too? Probably, but you’ll have to fork down some serious dough to get his first appearance because it just so happens to be the first appearance of Matt Murdock himself in Daredevil #1 (1964). Like in the case of the Amazing Spider-Man #50 issue though, Daredevil #1 will always be in the buy market.

Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #32 will bring Nocturna front and center in the new 52 universe. And just in case you’re wondering; Nocturna’s first appearance is in Detective Comics #529 (1983).

There is one knockout punch coming from Image Comics this week that you need to get and have fun with in the aftermarket; Wicked and Divine (2014) #1. The comic is completely sold out across the board. Regular and variants are sold out. So get em’ while they’re hot. MPH (2014 Image) #2 variants are gone. Look for second prints on this comic to follow soon.

1870697 1867874IDW will be in the black this new comic book day. Star Trek City on the Edge of Forever (2014) #1 is sold out and the Winterworld (2014 IDW) #1 variants are gone. Soon too will be the regular cover.  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star in an all new series; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtles In Time (2014) #1. Sales look strong on this comic right now.

Dynamite Entertainment are showing some very strong sales with Doodle Jump (2014) #1. Doodle will most likely be sold out soon after its release.

Marvel promises to name a character from its’ 48 year history in Silver Surfer (2014 5th Series) #3. What does this mean exactly? Your guess is as good as mine, I have no idea.

Other debut comics to check out this week; Thomas Alsop (2014) #1, Regular Show (2013 Kaboom) Annual #1, Fathom (2013 Aspen 5th Series) Annual #1, and Wonderland Age of Darkness (2014) #1.

 

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

Welcome to InvestComics Amazing Spider-Man Checklist (Part 1). All of his main titles will be covered and then some other books, including some obscure silly books. Keep in mind here that while this is one of the most comprehensive Spider-Man lists you will find, there are some comics and creators that were missed and some that were missed on purpose. So if you’re seeking out the first appearance of Mountain Marko or Red 9, you won’t find it here. But you’ll find the first appearance of Man-Wolf! Or if you’re looking for that special 1 in 15 variant cover, or the 30 cent variant …..you won’t find those here either. Just some key issues (and “not” so key issues), but if you think you have one that we missed, do not hesitate to give us your pick(s) below in the comments section or on Facebook or Tweet us!

So first a quick video Intro! This video covers all of the comics that will be covered in this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks. Enjoy the images and music first, then come back…….go ahead you can, we’ll be right here waiting for ya!

Spider-Man

Amazing Fantasy #15This would be the first and foremost obvious pick out of the gate here. For those that are not comic collectors and just happened to stumble upon this article, Amazing Fantasy #15 is the first appearance of Spider-Man. Owning this comic is the equivalent of owning Action Comics #1 from DC Comics. Now while Spidey’s first appearance is not worth as much monetarily, it carries the same stature as owning the flagship character within the Marvel Comics line as does Superman (Action Comics #1) does for DC Comics. If you ever have the chance to somehow be in a position to own this comic book, don’t think twice about it.

The first 50 comics in the original Amazing Spider-Man (1963) rivals as good of a run in any collection of books you will find within the comic hobby anywhere.

Amazing Spider-Man

Amazing Spider-Man #1Gives us the first appearance of the biggest thorn in Peter Parker’s side for the last 48 years or so……his boss, J. Jonah Jameson. This comic also features the first Chameleon.

Amazing Spider-Man #2The second issue has the first Tinkerer! Well that’s not the character we’re looking for now is it? No of course not, The Vulture makes his debut in the second issue. Now that’s the one we were looking for!

Amazing Spider-Man #3Features the debut of the second Spider-Man film star Dr. Octopus. And from the third Spidey Film…

Amazing Spider-Man #4We have our first look at the Sandman in this issue. So there you have the first four issues of Amazing Spider-Man with first appearances of some of the most enigmatic characters in the history of the franchise; characters that have withstood the test of time and continue to be a basic part of Spider-Man’s rogue gallery in the modern day.

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

Amazing Spider-Man #5The first true test of Spider-Man and his “amazing powers” came in these pages where he faced off and first met Dr. Doom for the first time. The Spider-Man rogue gallery continues to grow in the very next issue……

Amazing Spider-Man #6The latest Spider-Man movie has Dr. Conner becoming the Lizard and this is where we first see the reptile. Although the Lizard inside of the Spider-Man comics truly represents the villain, the movie changes things up a bit and this is the first disappointment off the bat from the trailers. Same as they did in the second movie with Goblin’s metal faceplate. Very disappointing…..

Amazing Spider-Man #9Jumping to the next issue, the introduction of this character (which would be awesome to see on the big screen one day!) makes for an electrifying issue to own. If you can buy this issue within the $2400 range, buy it. It has upside all over this one. Electro makes his debut here.

Amazing Spider-Man #10The first of the “weaker” debuts falls on the 10th. The Enforcers.

Amazing Spider-Man #13Lucky 13 debuts a villain that was rumored a while back to appear in the latest Spidey film, unfortunately we didn’t get him. Mysterio would have been quite a challenge to sell to the audience with that big ole’ globe on his head, but hey we all were sold on cars turning into giant robots right?

Amazing Spider-Man #15 Kraven the Hunter makes his first appearance right here. 279 issues later though….well we’ll get to that.

Amazing Spider-Man #20Another cool villain that we all await to see on the big screen one day makes his way into Peter’s tormented life. Scorpion’s first appearance right here.

Amazing Spider-Man #25Sticking with the torment in Peter’s life (just kidding ladies!), Peter meets two women that will change his life forever. Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy. One of these women does not get another date after 96 issues. More on that in a bit. This issue also debuts the robot Spider-Slayer. More on that as well later.

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

Amazing Spider-Man #28The Molten Man makes his debut here. Very interesting value comparison here with the previous issue. The Molten Man doesn’t command that much attention in the collectors market does he? No he doesn’t. Take a look at that cover. That black cover is near impossible to find in a high grade. That’s the explanation to that.

Amazing Spider-Man #33This comic has absolutely no first appearances, has no death, no life changing moments. The first “classic cover” by Steve Ditko in this Amazing Spider-Man run besides the first issue.

Amazing Spider-Man #37First appearance of Norman! Norman Osborn that is.

Amazing Spider-Man #39 The iconic John Romita Sr. debuts his beautiful Spider-Man artistry right here. This Near Mint Gem comes in at only $1600. And just look at that cover! What a wonderful piece of history to own here.

Amazing Spider-Man #40The following issue features the Green Goblin’s origin. While it may cost you a few dollars more to get THIS issue, the real winner is the previous issue.

Amazing Spider-Man #41The first appearances continue onward here in this ridiculous run. Most fans were hoping to see the Rhino make it to the big screen this go around, but not this time.

Amazing Spider-Man #46Shocker’s first appearance.

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

Amazing Spider-Man #50As said earlier in this article. The first 50 comics in the Amazing Spider-Man run…..unreal and rivaled to any of the biggest character names out there. This comic not only has the first appearance of Kingpin, but it’s a classic cover from John Romita Sr. The classic of all classic Spidey comics.

Amazing Spider-Man #78First appearance of the Prowler.

Amazing Spider-Man #80 The first Bronze Age Spider-Man comic. A fantastic buy at only $125.

Amazing Spider-Man #90Death finds its way into Spider-Man’s life, with more to come…..The death of Captain Stacy right here.

Amazing Spider-Man #96The famous “drug issue”. This would be the first time in comic book history that drugs were the focal point of a storyline. It’s also the first time that the “comic approved stamp” was not on the cover. It would return only to disappear for good years later.

Amazing Spider-Man #101 Before Twilight, before Anne Rice, before Blade, there was Morbius! This comic paved the way for cooler vampires.

Amazing Spider-Man #102The origin of Morbius.

Amazing Spider-Man #121Death comes knocking at Peter’s door once again. The death of Gwen Stacy. Boy did this rip Peter apart. Oh well, still has Mary Jane hanging around!

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

Amazing Spider-Man #122The death of Green Goblin. No worries here though, something happens 4 issues later that fulfills that void left in your gut. Amazing Spider-Man #126 =  Harry Osborn as Green Goblin 2.

Amazing Spider-Man #124The first appearance of Man-Wolf! Awesome…..right? $120 for this comic. 

Amazing Spider-Man #125The origin of Man-Wolf. $100.

Amazing Spider-Man #129First appearance of the Punisher. At one time this comic garnered a lot of attention. A LOT! With all of the changes over the years to this great vigilante character, the demand has waned a bit. Still a comic book that should be in your collection though. If Marvel ever decides to take this character seriously to the point of epic proportions (a la’ Batman), this comic will be untouchable once again. Give Frank Castle A.K.A. the Punisher the right direction and all hell will break loose with this collector’s item once again. At $500 (NM), it’s still a nice investment, but you may have to wait a little while to see some growth.

Amazing Spider-Man #134 – And way behind the Punisher debut 5 issues earlier we come to the first appearance of Tarantula.

Amazing Spider-Man #136  – First appearance of Green Goblin 2.

Amazing Spider-Man #181An early retelling of Spider-Man’s origin. Only $30!

Amazing Spider-Man #182So with Gwen Stacy out of the picture some 61 issues ago, what better time to ask for Mary Jane’s hand in marriage? Peter’s “first” proposal.

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

Amazing Spider-Man #194First appearance of the Black Cat. So Peter asks Mary Jane to marry him a few issues back and now this very hot girl in black spandex comes into the picture to make Peter have second thoughts. This stuff never happens in real life! Silly comic book stuff. What’s not so silly is the $90 price tag on here. Not too shabby! Guess that’s what Peter was saying too.

Amazing Spider-Man #195The origin of the Black Cat. Big drop off to only $25 for this issue.

Click To Buy/Bid

Amazing Spider-Man #238The first appearance of a major villain in sometime within the Spidey run. Hobgoblin debuts.

Amazing Spider-Man #252The entire Spider-Man history can be summed up into 4 parts. Speaking only in terms of the Spider-Man title books here, each part transcended Spidey onto a “New Level” if you will. Of course every story needs a beginning, Amazing Fantasy #15. A middle, which is this comic right here. The Debut of the Alien costume within the pages of Amazing Spider-Man would change the way Spider-Man as a character and franchise would be viewed forever. The cover says it all folks. Amazing Fantasy #15 and Amazing Spider-Man #252 will be forever linked. Yes issue #252 is THAT important. The third is issue #298, more on that in just a bit. And as for the fourth part of Spidey history, that would be Ultimate Spider Man #1, which comes much later on and we’ll get to it.

Amazing Spider-Man #259The “origin” of Mary Jane? That’s funny, don’t us “regular people/humans” all have the same origin? Okay, well here is the origin of Mary Jane.

Amazing Spider-Man #265First appearance of Silver Sable.

Amazing Spider-Man #272The first Modern Age Issue! Only $4. 

Amazing Spider-Man #294279 issues later…….Kraven’s demise right here.

Amazing Spider-Man #298 – The “third” part to the Spider-Man history, right here. Todd McFarlane made his debut on Spider-Man and changed the style of this character so much so that artist today still imitate the “look”. He brought a new look to Spidey that was never seen before as did Frank Miller with Batman, Neal Adams with Green Lantern, Walt Simonson with Thor and so on. Todd McFarlane’s first Spider-Man is well worth the money you put down on it. Oh yes and this comic features a cameo from a villain named Venom.

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

Amazing Spider-Man #299First time we see Venom in costume. A “cameo” once again. Boy that cameo stuff is strange. This truly is the first time we ever see Venom and it’s not the issue that draws the big bucks, its issue 300 that does. Why? Weird.

Amazing Spider-Man #300So this is the first “FULL” Venom story. While Hobgoblin some 62 issues ago was an important vital part of Spidey’s rogue gallery, this villain named Venom is probably the most recognized villains to come out of the Spidey Universe ever. Fans get instantly excited at the mention or sight of Venom in the pages of a Spidey book. Now granted over the years Venom was in every comic book known to man, as much as Wolverine was (still is) which caused his value to drop a bit. That said, Venom’s first appearance is still a must for any Spider-Man or comic book collector.

Amazing Spider-Man #302First appearance of Wes Cassady.

Amazing Spider-Man #304First Jonathan Caesar and Black Fox.

Amazing Spider-Man #344First appearance of Cletus Kasady (Carnage)

Amazing Spider-Man #583The first time President Obama shows up in a comic. The start of absolute money grab from every comic company on the planet.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1The first appearance of the Sinister Six.

Amazing Spider-Man #30 Vol.2 First appearances by Morlun and Ezekiel. This issue is also the first from creator Michael Straczynski. Great characters, great creator and great cover!

Amazing Spider-Man #36  Vol. 2A special World Trade Center 9/11 tribute issue. A fantastic read and a very hard comic to get in Gem Mint condition due to the fact of the all black cover.

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #1The first “new” Spidey series other than Amazing. That cover sure does look familiar though! (*AHEM amazing spider-man #134 AHEM*) A $50 comic with Spidey’s origin retold.

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

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #28Just as much as Frank Miller transcending Batman, he did the same for the Daredevil character. This comic provides the first time Frank Miller penciled Daredevil.

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64Cloak & Dagger make their first appearance right here. Buy it.

Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #103Sometimes looking around the comic book collecting landscape, one shakes their head saying to themselves “how can that be worth only $3?” But yes, $3 will get you the first work from Peter David. Sweet.

Marvel Team-Up

Marvel Team-Up #1 – The first of a 150 issue run. These comics were awesome and fun!

Marvel Team-Up #53John Byrne’s first X-Men art.

Marvel Team-Up #65Welcome to America Captain Britain! First time we see the Captain here in the States.

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

Marvel Team-Up #100First appearance of Karma, origin of Storm and Frank Miller art! All this for $6?!

Marvel Team-Up #141The “co-first appearance” of the alien costume.

Spidey Comics

Spider-Man #1 – Todd McFarlane’s Spidey #1 was mass produced to epic proportions. The entire run of 98 issues could be bought at less than $3 a piece. All but 2 that is. Spider-Man #1 – WalMart edition at about $20 and the golden prize of the run, well actually it’s the “Platinum” prize of the run is Spider-Man #1 Platinum Edition coming in at the $100 range.

Spider-Man Unlimited #8 – This little $3 comic was written by Joe Hill! Yes THE Joe Hill!! What you don’t know Joe Hill? How about Stephen King? You know that guy right? Okay well, Joe Hill is actually Joseph Hillstrom King. Oh okay, now you’re following. Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son and he writes too. This would be his first comic book work.

Ultimate Spider-Man #1There are essentially 4 tiers within the Spider-Man history universe. We discussed the previous three already. Ultimate Spider-Man brought the newest way to view Spidey. It’s another game changer. The new Spider-Man movie is basically going back to the Spidey roots with a younger Peter with a twist to his origin. Ultimate Spidey went back to Spidey’s roots too. Love it or hate it, the Ultimate Spider-Man book became the “next chapter” in the Spider-Man genre. With a ridiculous 16 different number one variant issues available, the best of the bunch goes to the White variant.

 

Invest wisely. Read Spidey.
