Weapon X #8

A possible introduction of a new villain in Dark Nights Metal #2. Maybe it’s just the Court of Owls? That Andy Kubert cover says this….Either way, still a great story thus far.
Mr. Oz reveals his identity in Action Comics #987 (Dan Jurgens & Viktor Bogdanovic). Part one of ‘The Oz Effect’. Two covers (Nick Bradshaw), the lenticular and non-lenticular are equally on point. Although ‘Mr. Oz’ will give readers the big ‘reveal’ he will turn out to be a character from long ago, but his first appearance as ‘Mr. Oz’ is in Superman #32 (2011).
The new Harley Quinn comic this week has a nice little reason for a collector to pick it up. Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special #1 celebrates….well the 25th year of her existence. Duh, but that’s not the reason this books cracks into the Hot Picks this week. DC Comics informs the fans that there will be creators all over this comic that have never worked on the Harley Quinn character before. Lots of first Harley work to check out, but from whom? Find out on Wednesday.
A villain named Bloodwork makes his (its) first appearance in Flash #30. Creative team; Joshua Williamson & Neil Googe.
Midtown Comics is limiting customers to only one copy per; Supergirl #13 – Stanley Artgerm Lau variant. Why the mention? Well, it’s a regular priced variant cover, so what’s up with that? And it’s going for almost double its cover price already in the aftermarket. Great cover though!

Buy/Bid – Dark Metal #2

Buy/Bid – Flash #30

Buy/Bid – Harley 25th #1

Buy/Bid – Venomverse #2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marvel’s Generation comics continue, with two captains; Generations Captain Marvel & Captain Mar-Vell #1. Creators: Margaret Stohl & Brent Schoonover.
The Runaways television show will be arriving soon and Marvel Comics will be there to cash in with a new Runaways series. Runaways #1 will be the series’ fifth volume. InvestComics released a Runaways comics checklist back in September of 2016. You can check this out by clicking right HERE. Make sure to check out all of our checklists right HERE.
The new Weapon H character is still wet behind the ears and he’s already receiving a Venomized cover; Weapon X #8 by Greg Land. Oh yes, it’s sold out already.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Venomverse #2 features Venom vs Poison Spider-Man. This is full of awesome as is this Venomverse series/event.
The late Michael Turner pops up every so often with a ‘remastered variant’. This time it’s Secret Empire Omega #1. InvestComics released a Michael Turner Creator Spotlight back in August 2016. You can click right HERE to check that out. What a super talent, gone way too soon.
Amazing Spider-Man #32 sets up the Spider-Man ‘event’ in 2018. Yes, that’s correct, 2018.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
Image Comics’ Realm #1  feels like a Mad Max/Walking Dead/Game of Thrones mash-up book. Look for sell-outs almost immediately upon release. Creators: Seth Peck, Jeremy Haun & Nick Filardi. The Tony Moore (cover B) is stellar. A definite ‘InvestComics Best Comic Covers Of The Week’ book.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
The Retcon #1 Image Comics solicit is one of the most confusing but funny things we’ve seen in a while. It’s a reboot of a comic that never existed as it embarks on an all-new issue number one! Huh? Okay, you’ll make us buy it. Creators: Matt Nixon & Toby Cypress.
Sheena #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. Creators: Marguerite Bennett, Christina Trujillo & Moritat.
Shinobi Ninja Princess Lightning Oni #1 (Action Lab Entertainment). Creator Martheus Wade.

We here at InvestComics had a chance recently to speak with Carol Zara. Carol and Eric Barnett released their comic last week and it’s called Alien Toilet Monsters #1. The reviews are in and nothing but good things are being said here. This comic is not a typical toilet humor type comic, it’s an actual story that involves aliens, guns and a bad as* girl at the helm. This awesomely fun comic is only available at certain comic conventions the ATM crew will be attending. It’s also available if you ask your comic store to order directly from them. The Alien Toilet Monsters site can be seen by clicking right HERE. ATM have their social media pages in tow as well. Follow Carol Zara on Facebook and Instagram as she keeps things updated on a regular basis on what’s what with ATM.

Fan2Sea 2017

Some images of the inaugural comic con cruise known as Fan2Sea. The images in this video do not do justice of the awesome time we had. A fantastic first year and we look forward to the next time Fan2Sea sets its sails once again. Special thanks to Michael, Ben, Stephen, Keith, Jen and the entire staff of Fan2Sea. Make sure you check out all of our image post along our social media outlets of this cruise. Until next time….

InvestComics at MegaCon 2016

MegaCon_2016_Cosplay

Another year in the books for InvestComics at MegaCon. This year was the first “full” year Fan Expo had creative control of the show. Gone are Beth and Christine, which ran an amazing show year in and year out. In NO WAY is the following review ANY indication toward Beth or Christine and the way they ran their MegaCon show. They were and are STILL champions in our book. 100% professionalism from them every single year we were part of their press core. We’d wish them luck, but we know whatever they choose to do next, they will rock that too! They don’t need luck, they’re that awesome. Thank you for everything.

Fan Expo put their best foot forward in their debut. A fantastic celebrity lineup; William Shatner, George Takei, Jon Cusack, Kevin Smith, and comic guest; Stan Lee, Frank Miller, Andy Kubert, Gail Simone, David Finch, Mike Zeck and so many more on both sides. Including super cosplay talents Leanna Vamp, Ivy Doomkitty, Rosanna Rocha, Ireland Reid, plus many more! An impressive lineup for sure!

When we did our initial walk-around, the first thing we noticed were the aisles. They were expanded so that fans were not crowded while walking. The staff on hand had a smile at every turn. The volunteers were equally as helpful as the Fan Expo staff. A great all-around experience regarding accommodating the InvestComics staff needs.

InvestComics took an abundance of photos at the show for fans who couldn’t make it. We do that every year and fans love it and respond! Thanks to all the fans who like, or heart, or retweet our photos from all of the social media sources we share them on. If you happen to have missed any, check out our social media links:

InvestComics Facebook page – HERE
InvestComics Instagram (Follow via mobile only) – HERE
InvestComics Twitter – HERE

The panels were held in various halls throughout. The amazing theater we saw Frank Miller, George Takei, and Kevin Smith were worth the ticket price itself. We hope fans got a chance to see their favorite guest(s) in one of these grand rooms. Sound, lighting, seating and ambience was spectacular. If you happened to have missed any panels, do yourself a favor and get there for a few next year. You’ll be happy you did.

InvestComics would like to extend a huge thank you to Ashley Jimenez and the Fan Expo staff for their hospitality and allowing us to be a part of their MegaCon show. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2017!

Besides ALL of the social media images the InvestComics fans loved (and thank you for that!), here is a short video of some highlights. Thank you all….again!

Carpe Diem.

Hot Picks Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #399 and new comics coming this Wednesday 11/25/15. Click the link to read the article now.

Here is the Hot Picks #399 video below:

Moon Girl 1

Hot Pick Of The Week – Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Click To Buy/Bid

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Here’s the first appearance of Moon Girl and an overall fun book to check out this week. A keeper here.

Dark Knight III – Huge expectations for DC and fans alike. Spoiler alert coming up in case you don’t know, so discontinue reading if need be……..Frank Miller said that Carrie Kelly will take the Batman mantle in this latest installment. Wow another gender change for a big character, how original.

Silk #1 – InvestComics has and will always be on team Silk. Originality within this character brings the cultural and gender into play making for a possible deeper character driven hero for years to come.

Henchgirl #2 – Scout Comics has done it again. A sold out number issue (short print run) and a sold out number two issue. Henchgirl is hitting a cord with fans.

Jacked #1 – Maybe Hollywood or a television studio will come-a-knockin’ with this story. Or maybe not, but a DC/Vertigo title written by Eric Kripke will be an interesting book.

Well we cannot avoid the elephant in the room this week, so lets get it out the way shall we? Dark Knight III. Yep Dark Knight III and it’s 48 variant covers at last count. Absurdity at its finest here. 48 covers, is this truly necessary? Of course it’s not, but money is important for business, so while not necessary, it’s business. Before moving on, we want to point out that what you’re about to read regarding all of the hype regarding DKIII you may have heard here before over the years, just some rehash, an observation, some added numbers…..

Here are some things to consider if you’re in the market for that rare rare crazy variant. The first and most obvious, well maybe not so obvious to the potential buyer, but if you spend a whole bunch of money on a “rare” DKIII variant, you just bought a comic book “cover” for say….$150. So now you have yourself a “nice” pretty cover with the SAME EXACT insides as probably 1 million other comic books. Absolutely NOTHING different within the confines of YOUR pretty expensive cover’s insides as opposed to the other million copies. So your options are one or two things after you make your $150+ purchase. Get it graded (9.8 or more) and quadruple your intake (poor sap buying that! Wow) or hold onto it thinking you’ll have a comic to send your children to college with, which will never happen. Here’s a wake-up call. First and foremost, Dark Knight III will probably be a great book, better than Dark Knight II, but NOT better than Dark Knight I. Let’s have a clear understanding of something here, if you are an avid collector you will not have to read ahead here, but this is for the newer collectors and the others that have been brainwashed by websites trying to over-hype 48+ covers. The Dark Knight Returns (1986) came out right before Watchmen #1 (1986). Whether you are a fan of either of these books or not, these were game changers. Fifty years from now, pop culture will refer back to 1986’s Dark Knight and Watchmen books. It will not refer back to 2015 Dark Knight III. It just won’t happen. So lets do a quick reminder before the hate mail, Dark Knight III will probably be a great read. Better than II, but it probably won’t be a game changer. A game changer will always be a reference, a shape, a starting point, a long term monetary gain. Here is the pricing of three recent graded copies of DKI (1986) and what they sold for; 9.4 $220, 9.6 $239, 9.8 $750. Don’t you feel the pricing should be just a bit higher here, considering the iconic attachment of this book right? Well it probably would be, but one slight setback, too many copies out there. According to the CGC Census there are 344 9.8 graded copies and 725 at 9.6 and 350 at 9.4. and so on…..that’s a whole lot of comics. This is the reason the pricing will steadily increase over the years, but will never bounce to ridiculous numbers quickly like DKIII will in the immediate interim. Now lets relate ALL of this to Dark Knight III. The other speculative sites will inform buyers that this will be a book for the ages. Newsflash, It’s not going to be, but most buy into it and will jump all over it. All of those crispy 9.8 rare variants of Dark Knight III will go out to the grading companies and now you will eventually far exceed the 344 copies from 1986 that grade at 9.8. They will sell at or ABOVE the last sold copy from 1986. Does this make sense at all to you? Oh yes yes, it’s a special cover that’s right. The inside is still the same right? Yes yes it is, we’ve already established that. But man is this a great money grab right? There will be over hyped buyers listening to these other sites and essentially making a bad purchase, but readers here will be smart and sell their books if they can double/triple their money. Do not let greed set in, you will eventually lose.

Dark Knight I (1986) contained the first appearance of Carrie Kelly. It was written Frank Miller. Art by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Dark Knight III this Wednesday will be written by Brian Azzarello and ….Frank Miller? Back to that in a sec. Art by Andy Kubert /Klaus Janson. So it’s said that Frank Miller had nothing to do with the story. DC attached his name as though Miller was an intricate part of the story, but he kind of wasn’t. Frank Miller did state though that he will be THE writer on Dark Knight IV. Oh joy, 80 variants for that one we hope!

Will Dark Knight III contain that all too important first appearance to keep its lure? Will the story be so groundbreaking that it changes the comic book medium? This is the only way in the comic collectors hobby that DKIII will sustain its long term monetary value in ANY way. Otherwise what you will have in that $600 Jim Lee variant cover is…..a pretty cover. Good luck with that. Invest that $600 on a Silver Age or Bronze Age book.

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

In closing regarding DKIII. Before anyone sends the hate mail we are not suggesting you do not buy DKIII or any of its variants. We are not down on DKIII. We’re not saying NOT to buy it. You absolutely should. It’s probably going to be a cool read, but what we are saying is not to get caught up in the hype and waste your hard earned money. If you dig a variant and it’s expensive, but YOU dig it, then by all means buy it. Buy what you like because you connect with it. We like to inform collectors of the reality of things and not the fantasy when it comes to speculation. Barring any major introductions or groundbreaking storytelling, this series at the end of the day will be just another good Batman story. Which is fine.

NOTE: To any of the Frank Miller fans, did you know we have a Frank Miller checklist on InvestComics? Yep. Right HERE. Have fun and click on those Miller books you either didn’t know about or forgot about altogether!

(insert sarcasm here) Oh my goodness! It’s Harley Quinn on the cover of a Deathstroke comic! Will Deathstroke #12 be just like the RARE Scooby Doo Team-Up #12 Harley Quinn comic that InvestComics did NOT recommend and sold for a whopping $5.99 on Ebay last week?! No, but it’s a bad as* team-up and should be checked out.

Check out Justice League 3001 #6 as a new race of New Gods make an appearance.

A must read new DC/Vertigo title this Wednesday; Jacked #1. We can see this “ordinary” character becoming a movie or TV series one day.

Image Comics informs their Black Magick readers that a major character introduction will come in Black Magick #2. Sticking with the tip-off deal here from Image, Rumble #9 is set to introduce two major characters into the fray.

WWE fans may want to be put on alert as Ringside #1 from Image Comics hits this week. A violent wrestling story from writer Joe Keatinge. No John Cena here….maybe that’s for the best?

Saga #31 will return its story line to real time.

Back in 2010 InvestComics pointed out a nice cheap Jack Kirby number one issue/first appearance. It was Devil Dinosaur #1 (1978) and a near mint raw copy was selling for about $9. King Kirby was the writer, artist, editor, and the cover artist of this book for most of the nine issue run. A graded 9.8 PGX graded sold last week for about $74. Still a bargain actually! Why the mention of Devil Dinosaur? Well a sleeper book may hit this Wednesday so don’t nap on it. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 will be a good book. A few variants available, but the regular Amy Reeder cover is our fav. Also a note here and maybe more important than anything we just said. Back in 1978 not only was Devil Dinosaur’s first appearance in the number one issue, but it was also the first appearance of Moon Boy. Guess who’s first appearance is in the 2015 number issue? Yep, Moon Girl.

Regular visitors to the InvestComics website know that we are big fans of Silk. Always have been. We have always felt there is more upside to her character than many other new female characters within the Marvel Universe. Silk #1 in it’s second volume already hits this Wednesday. Written by Robbie Thompson and art by Stacey Lee. You’re going to have to fight through a lot of the Silk #1 volume 1 to find Silk #1 volume 2 on Ebay right now. The popularity of the latest series should overtake the current 300+ listings of volume 1. Or after you click the link, you can input “vol 2” on the search bar! Some still come up differently on Ebay, so you’ll have to try different searches; i.e. Volume 2, Silk #1 vol 2, Silk vol 2 #1, etc…..

So what does Marvel do if they A: don’t want to pursue the Rom character back from obscurity or B: never cared enough to even think they want Rom back so they lost out to IDW Publishing in getting Rom back first even if they did in fact want him. Confused yet? We are. Anyway, comic fans know by now that Rom Space Knight is now at IDW Publishing. With that, Marvel will try to one up IDW this Wednesday with Venom Space Knight #1. No for real, no joke. No Amazing Spider-Man #300 Venom here, no this is Venom Space Knight! Marvel put writer Robbie Thompson and artist Ariel Olivetti on this book. They’re looking for a pop here. Will they get it? Hmmm…..maybe not? Maybe? But the Mike Deodato Jr. variant is awesome though isn’t it?

What happened to Fiona Staples on Archie?? Welcome artist Annie Wu to Archie #4. Fantastic Paul Renaud variant cover.

InvestComics gave you a heads up on Henchgirl #1 from Scout Comics. It sold out it’s short print run rather quick. Now the followup; Henchgirl #2. Will the second issue dictate where the series is headed? Will fans pick up on it? If you dug the first issue, show your support. Oh wait wait, we forgot to mention, Henchgirl #2 is sold out. Maybe the fans are speaking out already!

InvestComics Hot Picks – Top 5 New Comic Picks #8

From: InvestComics Hot Picks #369

Every Tuesday/Wednesday! Here are the Top 5 NEW comics to speculate/read from this Wednesday’s new comic book day.

From this past Sunday’s InvestComics Hot Picks #369

.

Batman #40 – The Endgame story line comes to a climatic conclusion. The last issue of this run is completely sold out. The regular cover and variants are no longer available at Diamond. The two variants are fantastic; the Andy Kubert and the Mask movie variant.Silk_3_InvestComics

Silk #3 – The Black Cat vs. Silk! The variant is sold out. Watch for books like this one to command some extra units once the Silk character hits it bigger. The Black Cat is already slated to appear in a Spidey movie eventually, maybe Silk too? Never know….

Princess Leia #3 – As explained on InvestComics quite often these past few months. Any new Star Wars comic holds the potential of explosion or possible long term investment. A first appearance may happen at any time and the speculation fever will hit. Maybe that first appearance will come to fruition. Maybe that first appearance will become a bigger story within the Marvel Universe. Maybe a cartoon appearance? Maybe none of this. Either way, you’re getting some good Star Wars stories to read!

Fantastic Four #645 – The last issue of Fantastic Four ever. That’s until the Mouse is not any anymore.

Mayday #1 – An odd offering from Black Mask Comics. A daring story line about Hollywood may have this comic fly under the radar.

Okay, so let’s talk about some comics……

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release 10-30-13

[scrollGallery id=316]

There was a comic book run that basically changed the landscape of comic books as we know them some 24 years ago. That comic book run was DC’s (Vertigo) Sandman from 1989. The ebb and flow of storytelling in comic books were changed forever in 1989. This was due for the reason of one man, Neil Gaiman. Neil is a storyteller; he has a pulse on what the reader yearns for. He sets moods, changes, flow and so much more. There are not enough words to describe this man’s legendary status. And quite frankly he doesn’t need words; he’s done enough for himself to establish his legend status in the comic book genre and in the publishing world as well. This week Neil visits familiar territory. Yes that’s right you guessed it, Sandman. Sandman Overture (2013) #1 will probably not break new ground, but what it will do is spark the interest of readers and collectors alike. Then again, maybe it will break new ground? Who knows with Mr. Gaiman? Here’s the nuts and bolts here folks, DC has spoken of Vertigo titles making it onto the big screen for a while now. What better way to start than right here, with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman? There have been many predictions within the InvestComics Hot Picks that have come to fruition (some not too), but to say that Sandman will definitely make it to a movie theater is not that far of a stretch, but it WILL happen. Sandman will become a film one day, and not only will it be spectacular, it will send the aftermarket into an absolute frenzy. This is why a collector should be on top on the 1989 Sandman #1 comic right now. Another book to be on top of is the Sandman Overture #1 variant from Dave McKean, a cool $125 for that variant, but can easily double with a 9.8 grade, and triple with a signature series. Not only will the Sandman Overture #1 heighten the interest of the already famous 1989 book, the movie to come will catapult it even more so. Thank me later. Don’t forget to let everyone know that InvestComics alerted you out on this one.

The recent “demise” of Damian was short lived and now the character has his own book coming out! Death in comics really doesn’t mean much, but you know this already. Anyways, Damian Son of Batman (2013) #1 will bring back the son of Bruce for a limited series, and then for sure a regular series down the line we’re guessing. Whether you’re a fan or not of the Damian character, one will have to stand up a bit and pay attention here. The character is a hot commodity, the collector should embrace this. The reader should just ignore him if they aren’t interested. The collector’s battle over the true first appearance of Damian rages on behind the scenes, but here’s the skinny. The only true answer lies within the money if you’re a speculator. The birth of Damian happened in Batman: Son of a Demon #1 in 1988 (not in DC continuity? Then maybe it is?), but according to the folks at CGC, they say that Batman #655 (2006) is the recognized cameo of Damian. The first full appearance of Damian is Batman #656. So with that, regardless of how the argument may want to flow, CGC is setting the precedence on the Batman comics #655 and #656 as the cameo and first, and this is where the money is going to be found because of the little inscription on the top of the casing. Buy the first Damian. It’s an uptick comic for years to come. Oh yes, one last thing. Pick up the Damian Son of Batman #1 Andy Kubert sketch variant at $60, grade it make money, simple as that. And finally from DC Comics this week, Forever Evil Argus (2013) #1 is sold out. The Forever Evil campaign continues to kill it on the shelves, well semi-disappear really. As the previous InvestComics Hot Picks have stated with the Forever Evil storyline, unless there is a major holy sh*t moment that really takes the genre by surprise, there will be no redeeming value (speculator) in any of the Forever Evil titles down the line. The true redeeming value here is a fantastic storyline.

Damian first appearance

Marvel Comics stays busy this week with comics like Captain America Living Legend (2013) #2. This book will introduce an alien like thing. Not sure exactly what, but check it out. And look at that awesome cover too! Dan Slott promises that the new Superior Spider-Man (2012) #20 will seriously shake things up. As if things haven’t been shaken already?! Be sure to grab a copy to see how things are playing out. Another shake up looks to be occurring in Guardians of the Galaxy (2013 3rd Series) #8. Peter Quill will betray the entire Marvel Universe? Okay we’re interested. Cataclysm (2013 Marvel) #0.1 would be nice to write about, but the Marvel solicit is “classified”. The variant is sold out though, know that much! The new Bryan J.L. Glass Thor Crown of Fools (2013) #1 will be sold out on Thursday. Be sure to have your copy in hand or in your pull box.

Ash and the Army of Darkness return this week in Ash and the Army of Darkness (2013) #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. Talks of a new movie will boost interest for the original Ash and the Army of Darkness #1 from 1992. That’s 21 years ago. Feel old yet? The comic is mostly sold out across the board. Archie Comics had a huge success with the recent Archie zombie book Afterlife with Archie #1 (InvestComics informed that you’d get the variants, hope you did!). So what’s next to come you may ask? How about Fox (2013 Red Circle) #1? Yep, the Fox is running amuck and its best you catch it! Preferably the variant! Fox #1 is another hot comic folks. Don’t believe it? Check by Friday and see if there are any variants left for you. Oh yes, check Ebay on those, they’ll be over there probably. Incidentally, in case anyone is interested. Fox first appeared in Blue Ribbon Comics #4 way back in 1940. Good luck ever seeing that comic in your lifetime in near mint condition or in your lifetime period. There are a few comics that should be on your radar due to the low number left or their sold out status. Wildwork (2013 Antarctic Press) #1, Adventure Time Spoooktacular (2013) #1,and Wilder (2013 Monsterverse) #0.

Amazing artist Marc Silvestri pays homage to himself this week with the cover on Witchblade (1995) #170. If the cover doesn’t ring a bell (How could it not??!!), it’s original concept cover was featured on the Uncanny X-Men #251 with Wolverine stuck on the X and not a W. Awesome cover on both Marc!! See below to marvel in the beauty.

That’s it for this week. Be sure to share InvestComics across the social media because not only is it cool to do, but you can win some awesome prizes too! Batman The Dark Knight #23.4 Joker’s Daughter #1 SIGNED by artist Georges Jeanty and Excalibur #1 SIGNED by legend Chris Claremont!!

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 3-13-13

Below you will find the first of many (when I have time to render and release them!) video’s from myself and Erick Marquez. The show is called The Broker & The Artist. Erick and I talk about various topics within the area of comic books and
entertainment. This first episode *The Comic Con Survival Guide* is dedicated to the beginning of the comic book convention season. If you have been to shows, then you may know a lot of what we speak of. Maybe there are some tips
you weren’t aware of, so watch on! If you have never been to a show, then you truly need to take a look at this video! If you’d like to add to the survival list, don’t hesitate to leave a comment on the InvestComics YouTube page. Any input that would help anyone out would be great. Happy watching!

This week the successful TBS show King of the Nerds aired its finale. Celeste Anderson was crowned the KING! Great job Celeste! InvestComics has some close ties with the King show and originally caught up with hosts Robert Carridane and Curtis Armstrong at the New York Comic Con. The audio was not that good, but I managed to salvage a good question out of the video. You can watch that right HERE. After the finale this past Thursday, InvestComics got the go ahead to interview
Celeste the very next day! So Shaun Cobble, Kirstie Cobble and Andy Partridge interviewed Celeste on Breaking the 4th Wall. The interview was fantastic and not only do you get Celeste, but you get a complete recap of the King of the Nerds season 1 from Shaun and Andy! You must check out this podcast! Click right HERE to listen now! Special thanks to TBS for giving MegaConInvestComics the opportunity to have Celeste on.

MegaCon is upon us once again. Boy does this show come quickly every year! Once again, InvestComics will be there and will be making its rounds to various locations throughout. Look for coverage on the InvestComics website. Also check out the
InvestComics Facebook page for LIVE pictures from the show. If you have not yet LIKED the InvestComics Facebook page (why not?!?) then click HERE to not miss a beat from InvestComics shooting out pictures from MegaCon!

Okay enough chit-chat; let’s get to the Hot Picks list. Very short list this week…..

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=232]

The main focus this week will be Batman (2011 2nd Series) #18. This comic features guest artist, (and what a guest it is!) Andy Kubert. Of course this isn’t the first time Andy has drawn Batman, so what would be his earliest work on Bats? Check out the DC’s Batman versus Predator #1 from 1991, here you will find Andy Kubert alongside writer Dave Gibbons in this overprinted comic. Hey it was 1991, what do you expect? Although this comic could be found anywhere you look on the planet, it’s still an awesome comic to check out and own.

Staying on topic with Batman, DC promises “the story of the year” in Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #18. Best check that out fans.

Marvel Comics seems to have that Wolverine fever again. Remember when Wolverine appeared in every comic book in the Marvel Universe? Kind of like Deadpool does now. Well this week the comic collector will get not one, but 2 number one Wolverine issues this week. How about some spacing out Marvel? Wolverine (2013 4th Series) #1 goes for its fourth number one issue, while Ultimate Wolverine (2013) #1 goes for its first. We all know that Marvel will announce big sell outs with second prints arriving and really start the hyperbole rolling here, but don’t get too caught up in the collector/investment side of it. Nothing will hold here.

What can possibly be in more of a holding pattern are these number one issues heading our way, must check these out……Aliens vs Parker (2013 Boom) #1, Sledgehammer 44 (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Triggergirl 6 (2013 Image) #1, Bad Kids Go to Hell (2013 Antarctic Press) Volume 2 #1, and Doctor Who fans rejoice; Doctor Who Classics (2013 IDW Series 6) #1.

WONDER WOMAN gets a new origin, ACTION COMICS gets a new artist (for 2 issues)

 

In DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, Wonder Woman will have a new origin, in which she is the daughter of Hippolyta … and Zeus! In recent interviews, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang have teased that readers should expect the unexpected in this edgier, horror take on the superhero genre ­and the king of the gods will ensure that nothing goes as planned for his defiant daughter.

Originally created by the goddess Aphrodite and raised to perfection on the Amazon island of Themiscyra, the newest incarnation of Wonder Woman has a new costume and now a new origin ­ but she remains Wonder Woman. Strong. Proud. Fearless. WONDER WOMAN is the 12th title in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 to sell more than a 100K copies.

 

DC also announced that Andy Kubert will be doing a two-issue sting (filling in for regular artist Rags morales) on Action Comics #5 & #6. They also teased at least an appearance by Krypto. This makes me happy.

Andy had this to share with readers:

“When Editor Matt Idelson asked if I would be interested and/or able to fit into my schedule two upcoming issues of Action Comics with Grant, I couldn’t say no,” said Kubert. “I don’t know of any other artist that would have. Drawing the latest incarnation of Superman and working with one of the best writers on the planet made it a very easy decision for me. And in this story, I get to do some VERY iconic stuff! I gotta admit, I’m a little nervous… Fun Fact for those keeping score: I had never drawn Superman in a comics interior for an entire issue. I had done inking over Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for an issue each over their beautiful pencils way (and I mean WAY) back when but this is my first opportunity to pencil the Man of Steel interior pages for my very own!”

An Image character starts getting a serious beat down this week and we all get to witness it. Meet Conquest! Boy Markus…..you’re in trouble.

invincible61.gif

Invincible #61  Well Invincible fans, looks like your boy is in a heap of trouble here. This week is a start of a big storyline that introduces us all to Conquest. This looks and feels like a biggie. Markus hasn’t faced the depths of hell like this, ever. Once all of the dust settles, Conquest is probably going to be a thorn in Mark’s side for years to come and this issue will be the first issue that introduces him. You really should pick this one up. 

 

 

asm592.gif

Amazing Spider-Man #592  Amazing Spider-Man is scorching right now. Following the events of last issue comes the All New Vulture. Plus Marvel says that Peter is dropping by Aunt May’s house and ends up with a shocking surprise. Could it be that Aunt May is downloading the new Wolverine (bootleg) movie?? Oh the horror! 

 

 

detectivecomics845.gif

Detective Comics #845  Part 2 of Neil Gaiman And Andy Kubert’s Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?” Simply put, a classic in the making here. 

 

 

 

fantasticforce1.gif

Fantastic Force #1  Another reboot of a failed team book. What makes this time so different? Writer Joe Ahearne? No. Pencil work by Steve Kurth? No. Cover art by Bryan Hitch? No. Let’s see, on second thought, happy reading on this one. Hope it last at least 12 issues!

 

 

Here are some other Comics to watch this week or just look pretty

batman686neilgaimanandykubertwhateverhappenedto_thecapecrusader.gif

Batman # 686  In case you might not have heard, but Batman is dead. Well that’s what DC wants everyone to believe; too bad Marvel released that Obama/Spidey book the same week Batman supposedly died. Not much play for Bruce taking the dirt nap (maybe it’s because we all know he’s coming back). Okay so DC dropped the ball (again) on this one, but they are back with a biggie. Anyone remember how big the Superman story written by Alan Moore called ‘Whatever happened to the man of tomorrow’ was? Yes it’s still one of the best Superman stories ever told. Now enter Batman. Alan Moore isn’t returning for this one, but Neil Gaiman is coming on board for the ‘Whatever happened to the cape crusader?’ 2 part story that promises to be a high-quality, well written, demandable comic book. Andy Kubert is on board to work his great illustrations into a comic that has mass appeal already. Kubert only helps the value of this comic. Do not miss this comic collectors, it’s going to be a sure fire hit with multiple printings to follow. 

masquerade1johnromitasrvirgincover.gif

Masquerade # 1  Here’s a comic coming from Dynamite that has some potential. Good storytelling, good artwork and a virgin variant from John Romita Sr. The variant, if you could get it should be bought. A John Romita Sr. variant is a great treasure to have, a virgin variant is even better. Buy this one and hold on to it for a long time. Romita Sr. will be legend one day, or maybe he already is, whatever your opinion, hold onto that as well. It’s yours. 

 

 

thor600dellottovariant104pgs.gif

Thor # 600  Stan Lee returns to Marvel again for a special Thor story within these 104 pages of comic good heaven. Join the party! And look at that Dell’Otto variant cover, now that’s cool.
