Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Detective Comics #871 graded 9.6. It’s kind of a rare thing these days to get a JOCK signature. Anyone that follows InvestComics knows how much we love the artist Jock. We have an entire checklist of our favorite works by him right HERE. So this comic is a graded 9.6 with a Scott Snyder and a Jock signature. For only $99, this is a nice book.

Hold on folks, here come the DC Rebirth books. Be on the look out for first appearances. It only takes ONE to breakout and cause quite a stir in the aftermarket. Be on top of these good stories as DC breaths new life into their Rebirth era. Here are some highlights; Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 puts writer Geoff Johns back with artist Ethan Van Sciver on a Green Lantern book. These two make Lantern poetry together. “Newer” Green Lanterns Jessica Cruz (first appearance in Justice League #30 – 2014) and Simon Baz (First appearance was in The New 52 FCBD Special Edition #1 – 2012. First origin was in Green Lantern #0 – 2012) lead the charge here.

Batman Rebirth #1 begins a new chapter for DC’s iconic hero. Scott Synder and Tom King write. Calender Man will be the adversary Bats has to deal with in the first issue. And in case you’re wondering, Detective Comics #259 (1958) was the first appearance of Calender Man.
The latest issue of Batman Beyond examines the intricacies of the character Rewire. Check out Batman Beyond #13 for the scoop. Another scoop; Rewire first appeared in Batman Beyond #2 (2013).

A mega four issue comic crossover happens all in one comic this week. Where you ask? Only one comic could pull this off, Deadpool #13. Duh! That Khoi Pham variant cover though…….
Marvel’s Civil War II officially gets under way this week. Civil War II #1 is solicited as “CLASSIFIED”. More of the same with Invincible Iron Man #10. Boy we hate that. Now we have to wait another week before finding out what is so “classified”. The Rafael Alburquerque hip hop cover is dope though. We’ll just stare at that until Wednesday’s new comic book day.

Smosh #1 – We informed readers on Friday that this comic was definitely one to keep an eye out on. The comic is completely sold out across the board. Variants and the regular cover. Yes we did warn readers this was a book to watch for. We hate to say we told you so, but……we told you so.

Gwenpool #0 – The incentive variant is sold out. We spoke about this too.

Punisher #1 – The Alex Maleev variant is sold out. Yes, yes we spoke about this as well. We spoke about the new Punisher series, written by Beck Cloonan in length in this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #422. Read up on it.

Renato Jones One Percent #1 – This offering from writer/artist Kaare Andrews is a winner. 

Spider-Gwen #8 – Two variant covers have new Spider-Gwen characters on them. A Spider-Gwen Samurai and Iron Spider-Gwen. Could me nothing, but Gwenpool first appeared on a cover too.

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Superman #23.1 10.0 (2013). This comic serves as no significance in every day collectors life, but it does have the origin of Bizarro. We do feel that Bizarro will eventually make it to either the big screen or little screen one day, but that’s not really why we have this comic featured here. If you ever wanted to own a perfect gem mint comic book, a 10.0, here is your chance for only $89 and FREE shipping. Not a bad deal for a perfect comic book.

Midnighter #12 has Apollo, Suicide Squad and Midnighter himself squaring off against a dude as powerful as Superman and as smart as Midnighter. His name is Unified and his first appearance was in the previous issue; Midnighter #11.
Neal Adams is killing it with his Superman The Coming Of Supermen comics. And check out the cover to Superman The Coming Of Supermen #4!
Green Arrow #52 features a dead Green Arrow at the hands of Deathstroke. Not really dead, but still makes for some high drama! Fantastic Patrick Zircher cover.
The Super League storyline, part 5, will bring the team Great 10 on board. Check out Batman Superman #32 for that. And just to make sure you have it, Great 10’s first appearance was in 52 #6 back in 2006. Not that many appearances under their belt in ten years. 30 in all maybe?

Dynamite Entertainment is all in with their Kings Quest #1 release. Nine (noine) covers to choose from here. The Chris Ellopoulos cover and the Colton Worley cover are our favorites.
Okay so Dynamite has this interesting comic coming out on Wednesday and it’s going to be extremely interesting to see how it all plays out. The comic is Smosh #1. Smosh is a social media conglomerate. They have 22 million Youtube subscribers and millions more in other social media outlets. They are now releasing their first ever comic book. With social media driving so much marketing around us, will Smosh use this opportunity to benefit in promoting a different medium for themselves? Will they use their media brand to sell comics?  How will all this equate to comic sales?? Something to keep an eye out on if they decide to promote via their vast media audience. Better buy this comic for the rawness of its story, it sounds hysterical, and for the possible sell out due to supply not meeting demand.

Marvel releases it’s tenth volume Punisher #1 this week. You probably did the eye roll seeing that the Punisher has another number one comic coming out. What if we told you that THIS time is a bit different? He’s something to chew on. Out of the ten volume number one issues, never did one start with a name like Becky Cloonan. Becky will be the first female writer on the start of a new Punisher series. It will be quite refreshing to get a new take on this character from a female perspective. Becky Cloonan is an all-start and has been around since the beginning of the millennium. She’s no stranger as to how comics are written or drawn for that matter. Punisher #1 this time will truly have a new outlook. One more thing, the amazing Alex Maleev variant is sold out. As is the pointless Captain America Punisher #1 cover by John Cassaday. Nice cover, but we don’t care it’s a celebratory 75th anniversary Cap cover, makes no sense not to have the Punisher on the cover, period.

InvestComics gave readers a heads up on the first ever Gwenpool comic a while back. Fans listened and bought them up. She donned the cover of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 (the one we recommended). Now Marvel is re-releasing that particular comic along with other Gwenpool appearances. Gwenpool #0 collects a bunch of Gwenpool stories including her first appearance, but that variant new blood red pool cover (that original comic we recommended), yeah it’s sold out already.
So you want another first appearance on a cover? Sure why not?! How about Spider-Gwen #8 featuring Spider-Gwen Samurai. This variant cover is from John Tyler Christopher. How about Iron Spider-Gwen first appearance? Does that tickle your fancy? She appears on a Spider-Gwen #8 variant as well. We’re not too sure who that cover is from.
Jamal Campbell’s variant Amazing Spider-Man #12 cover is a beauty, wow.

Whenever a Daredevil/Punisher comic comes out, it’s a must get. These two characters make beautiful comics together. Blindspot will join Daredevil in Daredevil Punisher #1 to TRY and take down Frank Castle. Blindspot does not have many appearances since entering the Marvel Universe in All New All Different Point One #1 (2015), his first appearance. Daredevil and the Punisher first met up in that famous/classic Daredevil #181 (1982) comic.
A few months ago Marvel gave us a first ever look at the Mexican Deadpool in Deadpool Masacre #1. It was an all Spanish written book. Now we get the English version of that exact book this Wednesday.

It appears a new Iron Man (Girl) will be making their first appearance in Invincible Iron Man #9. The female characters have dominated the Marvel landscape these days and much to the delight of fans. It’s working out real well.
Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 introduced some new Star Wars characters. Now we learn more about Captain Terrex in Star Wars Poe Dameron #2.
Marvel’s semi-answer to DC’s Suicide Squad debuts this Wednesday; Thunderbolts #1. It’s the teams third number one issue (third volume). The Thunderbolts have been around (with different members throughout the years) for almost 20 years already. They were first introduced in Incredible Hulk #449 (1997).
Mark Millar’s Empress #2 comes out. We said this with the first issue, as long as this series is on time, it should do well.

New Release Comics on 5/20/15 (And back issues)

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

 

Marvel’s newest title will be hitting this Wednesday; A-Force #1. A much hyped all female Avengers team. With all of the female strong characters of late, this only seems fitting right? Here’s the thing, and this happens way too often. Whenever the big two (Marvel or DC) hit on something (characters/team) that works for them (monetarily), they go ahead and shove it down our throats. Deadpool, Lobo, Wolverine, Spider-Gwen, Ghost Rider, etc. It happens all the time. Appearances aplenty and number one issues as well. The  A-Force team will be shoved in our faces as “must like” material. Here’s newsflash, this A-Force love-fest is not going to last very long. Not being a negative Nancy, just a realist and a speculator. We hope to get proven wrong, but history is doomed to repeat itself here. Quickly, name one mega successful all female comic book team book. You can’t. You can probably rattle off a dozen female characters that are simply red hot right now though and have held their own for years and years. That’s where this all works. Just like some of their counterparts, they are fantastic solo acts or team players. An all female team is not what the fandom really wants. Yes some female comic character are out selling their counterparts easily and we get that the push to lure the girl into the hobby is possibly working, but it’s not going to work with A-Force. Again, prove us wrong, would love that. We want to see success here.
With all this said, the great part about A-Force #1 is we’re probably going to get an endearing story. An all female Avengers heroes team kicking butt should be a fun read. We also know we’re getting a ridiculous amount of variants too. The Adam Hughes variant is sold out.
So get this book because you like to read comics. You probably will not be able to speculate this book and make some serious cash on it. Maybe, possibly an immediate impact, but longer term? Simply don’t see it. Last time here, prove us wrong and sustain some readership/market value. Please. That Adam Hughes variant is nice though isn’t it?! Enjoy the great read.

More Secret Wars awesomeness with the release of Secret Wars Battleworld #2. Witness all of the knock em down drag them out fights in this comic. M.O.D.O.K. Evilness reaches new heights here. M.O.D.O.K.’s First appearance is in Tales of Suspense #94 (1967). Such a goofy looking character, and it’s brought to you by Stan Lee, Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Wow now that’s some firepower. For many years fans have clamored the presence of M.O.D.O.K. On the big screen and it just doesn’t seem feasible without looking completely goofy. Maybe, somehow Marvel figures it out, but seeing a huge head like that flying around would be a “jump the shark” type deal and not a productive one. More like a Dark Crystal or a muppet type feel, thus not taken seriously. Marvel Studios is probably aware of the possible vibe and this is why we’ll probably never see this character on screen.

The Marvel Ultimate universe is ending. What a ride is has been! Witness this tragic event in Ultimate End #1. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Mark Bagley. This is the same exact creative team that ushered in the Marvel Ultimate Universe 15 years ago with the first Ultimate comic ever; Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). Ultimate End #1 will be a story for the ages. No more Ultimate Universe. And we don’t really see it coming back from Marvel either. This won’t be a “take-back” from Marvel. We don’t see Marvel going back to the well anytime soon re-releasing Ultimate books or the universe. Marvel is merging the two universe’s in the Secret Wars/Battleworld story, so essentially they really don’t have a need to revisit the Ultimate universe later on down the line. Of course it can still happen because if Marvel wants it they’ll do it, but bringing back the Ultimate universe (ever) after the dust settles on this storyline would be a tremendous disappointment.

Planet Hulk #1 will be full of awesome this Wednesday. Regular readers here at InvestComics know that Planet Hulk and World War Hulk have been promoted here as enormous buys because of the movie speculation we were first on. No one else was informing speculators to buy The Incredible Hulk #92 (2006) back a few years ago, the first Planet Hulk. Also What If Planet Hulk #1 (2007). We still recommend these comic. Buy them. A surprise creative team backup story accompanies Planet Hulk #1, we look forward to the surprise!

Remember InvestComics informing everyone to buy anything Spider-Verse , and that first Spider-Gwen was in there which paid for all of your new comics and then some for a few months? Yeah, so now Spider-Verse is back; Spider-Verse #1 and this just means that there will be another chance for one of those first appearances or re-introductions to do well in the aftermarket. Stay close here with your ear to the ground. That all said, the Robert Rodriguez Spider-Gwen variant is sold out already. Best get your hands on one at your local shop or click on the link or comic cover here in this article to bid/buy now before the price escapes you.

InvestComics informs speculators and readers almost every week, they need to get on top of any new Star Wars comics if they want to be in the know and the possible aftermarket frenzy. At any time a new hero or villain can show up. This will cause a huge aftermarket boost. Get in and get out. If you want, hold onto at least one of your $4.99 comics if you want to possibly wait and see if the market will explode after the movie in December. Buy new Star Wars comics. All of them……and the new Star Wars #5 this week.

Master of Kung Fu #1.….maybe Marvel really wants this work because of the Iron Fist Netflix on the horizon. Create that whole Karate/Kung Fu vibe. Bring back the Kung Fu lure, make it happening again. Get the first Master of Kung Fu in Special Marvel Edition #15 (1973) just in case we have a resurgence. Pencils and cover by Jim Starlin too. Nice.

A bunch of number one comics to definitely check out this week;

Insufferable #1 from IDW, written by Mark Waid, art by Peter Krause. A new team book and it looks awesome. Boom Studios; Oh Killstrike #1. Interesting premise here. An escaped comic book character needs to be put back into a comic book. And the Kris Anka variant cover is sold out. Aspen Comics makes an appearance this week here with Psycho Bonkers #1.What a great title! Love it. And what a great looking read too. A five issue mini-series. Adventures of Aero Girl #1 from Action Lab Entertainment also looks like an interesting/fun read. The first Accelerators series did well for Blue Juice comics, so now we have a follow up with Accelerators Momentum #1. Valhalla Mad #1 from Image Comics. Written by Joe Casey. A sellout for sure. A whacked out take on mythology. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency #1, written by Mr. IDW himself Chris Ryall. Dark Horse; Resident Alien Sam Hain Mystery #1. A good looking story here. Chuck Dixon’s Winterworld Frozen Fleet #1 from IDW will be a good book to sit back and read.

Deadpools Secret Secret Wars #1. A wacky tale here written by Cullen Bunn. Great Tony Harris regular cover too. And also a solid homage grave variant as well. Sold out comics here most likely.

And check out Daredevil #15.1, “The life and times of Daredevil. 50 years in the making!” Ryan Stegman variant kills!

Comic Broker Report – May 2013

The Comic Broker’s Report

by Topher Seal

This month’s report is going to be a quick one as I slave away on next month’s UK Special.  Until that time I suggest you:

Pass on Iron Man 3 and rent John Dies at the End, then watch it three times.

Don’t believe the Marvel Miracleman hype!  ( I may have to eat my words down the road on this one. )

and take comfort in the fact that Twinkies are coming back so you can eat the rest of  that 4 month old last box you bought on Ebay.

Batman Beyond 1

Batman 20 concluded Scott Snyder’s surprisingly good Clayface tale and as an added bonus we get to see the Gen 1 Batman Beyond Suit!  There have been some great appearances by the future Batman over the years but if you are looking for the one with the most  potential on the back issue market then this is it.  There is also a free version that was made available 1 month later, a newsstand edition and a Six Flags Giveaway!

Bodie Troll 1

Bodie-Troll_1_cover

Collected from digital work this new indie gem is incredible.  The art is fantastic and it looks like a prime candidate for a cartoon adaptation.  For now you can get this one cheap  but the FCBD 2013 issue will generate buzz.  I can see first issues slowly drying up over the next few months.

The Stuff of Legend FCBD 2009

JAN090039_m

Of all the recent properties to get optioned ( Hoax Hunters, The Test and even Rachel Rising ) it is this wonderful comic that deserves the most attention.  Early issues are hard to find but none as tough to track down as this 2009 FCBD issue featuring the first appearances of the title.

Kung Fu Fighter 1 ( first Bronze Tiger )

This week DC is rolling out a host of characters into the New 52.  Bronze Tiger is easily my favorite.   The new design looks amazing and despite the small chance of commercial success I still say Kung Fu Fighter is worth  purchasing because it isn’t that easy to find in high grade.

DC (re)introduces BRONZE TIGER and CHESHIRE into the DCU.

New Teen titans Annual 2 ( First Cheshire )

New_Teen_Titans_v.1_Annual_2

A sick Perez cover has to be larger than all the rest!  As I mentioned above DC is introducing new blood into the failing New 52 with Cheshire?  Well lucky for this comic it has a great cover and is also the first appearance of The Vigilante. If you can find a CGC 9.8 for under 50 it’s worth it.

Adventures of Superman 465, 466

2407551images

Get the newsstand variants for these forgotten Superman comics!  Hank Henshaw ( Cyborg Superman ) will be making his debut in the New 52 and is likely to have the most success with readers.

Rescue One-Shot

Pepper_Potts_Rescue

The new Iron Man film is splitting fans down the middle.  I won’t tell you why but one of the best parts of the film is actually Pepper Potts.  There aren’t many appearances of Rescue but this one-shot is heating up on Ebay and if Pepper ever wears the suit in film you will be sorry you passed this one up.

172625_20091022105651_large

DC it flat out crazy announcing a Bat-Cow Comic!  For those of you who love Pet characters like Titus Wayne and Dex-Starr then you should look for this super rare DC comic featuring the first Bat-Cow!

Rachel Rising 1 ( 3rd Print )

JAN128163_m

Terry Moore’s latest is quite an effort and when it was optioned sales exploded.  But issue one does have a high print run compared to under 1500 for the third print.  Buy and hold to cash in down the road!

The Walking Dead 95

images

Robert Kirkman loved Rachel Rising so much he put a preview in the back of Issue 95.  No one really noticed and even though the preview  came out right before the trade for the first few issues the fact that there is an early appearance of Rachel Rising in a WD book means the heat is coming.

Strangers in Paradise 1

1102_20060114182925_large

If Rachel Rising hits big don’t forget about this classic!  Moore recently revealed that Rachel Rising occurs in the same universe as Strangers in Paradise!  It’s pricey but worth every dollar paid.

SUPERMAN BEYOND

DC’s long awaited, finally arrived BATMAN BEYOND ongoing is doing well enough to warrant a one-shot spin-off. That’s right, DC has announced a SUPERMAN BEYOND one-shot in August.

Spinning out of the fan favorite BATMAN BEYOND series come the adventures of The Man of Tomorrow in the DC Universe of the future! An aging Kal-El is called back into action to stop a villain more powerful than he’s ever faced – all while his own super powers are starting to fade.

SUPERMAN BEYOND #0 will be written by Tom DeFalco and illustrated by Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema. Check out the cover by Dustin Nguyen below!

The one-shot will be available in August.

BATMAN BEYOND #4 PREVIEW

Here’s a look at today’s BATMAN BEYOND #4, Courtesy of DC’s THE SOURCE.

BATMAN BEYOND #4
Written by ADAM BEECHEN; Art by EDUARDO PANSICA and EBER FERREIRA; Cover by DUSTIN NGUYEN

Having their secret identity exposed is the worst nightmare of any hero who wears a mask – and that nightmare is coming true for Dick Grayson! Bruce and Terry still think they can put this genie back in the bottle, but only with the help of Max, Terry’s closest confidant and computer wunderkind. But Max has problems of her own – the kind that Terry can’t ever find out about – and Dick has his own ideas about how to protect himself!
