Another slow week for the speculator. This means, as it always does, time to hit those bins hard, and scour the walls at your local shop for that gem.

Not too much coming out of a relatively quiet Thursday from the San Diego Comic Con. A couple of things; DC’s Vertigo imprint announced 12 new titles coming this fall, Hasbro’s Stormtrooper figure (the black series) caused near riots, and Image’s Invincible should have a video game/cartoon or something going by next year. Click the red link to buy the first full appearance of Invincible right now. We await several things from SDCC 2015. A possible full trailer for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a look at the Justice League team together, plus a surprise was announced that includes Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Image Comics’ Outcast trailer, Marvel news, Valiant Entertainment news, and whatever else we aren’t expecting! Be sure to stick with the InvestComics social media for possible tidbits on some key comics regarding the show.

And click HERE for the full list of exclusive items for SDCC 2015. A boatload of goodies!

Harley Quinn #18 features an appearance by Captain Strong. His last known appearance was in 1986. Welcome back Captain! The neat cover here actually not only pays homage to a 1973 cover, but it also happens to be the first appearance too. Action Comics #421 (1973) is the first appearance of Captain Strong and the original cover to this weeks Harley book. Here’s the thing, a 9.6 on Ebay right now is only $200. Yes granted, we’re talking a fourth rate character, but still a better buy than a majority of these ridiculous variants at $200. InvestComics has always said to sell your moderns and buy those back issues. Well here’s your chance. A first appearance from 1973 that includes names like Curt Swan and Dick Giordano in it? 9.6 for $200 no less? A no-brainer here.

Now let’s talk about another Captain arriving this Wednesday. Check out Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1. Looks like a fun book. It’s always great to see Captain Britain in a title isn’t it? A comic InvestComics has been recommending for years now; Marvel Team-Up #65 (1978). It’s the U.S. Debut of Captain Britain. A comic written by Chris Claremont, drawn by John Byrne, and a cover from George Perez/Joe Sinnott. We recommended this comic when it was a $1 book for years. Now it seems to have climbed a bit from that $1 bid. Should have listened! Seriously though, what is not to love about this comic? And this also applies to the Defenders as well. Their first appearance; Marvel Feature #1 (1971). We recommended at $50. Should have listened!

Ant-Man Annual #1; this comic has it all really. A Hank Pym/Scott Lang team-up, a villain from the past comes back, and an introduction of a new character. Yes, this is a pick up this week.

While we eagerly await possible news coming from the Valiant Entertainment group at SDCC, we can look forward to Book of Death #1 this Wednesday. Valiant will start their all new event saga right here. Written by Robert Venditti, art by Doug Braithewaite and Robert Gill. Yes a hit for sure brewing here. Looking forward to a great read.

It’s been a fantastic start of the week for InvestComics. That’s if Saturday and not Sunday is counted as the first day of the week on your calendar. For me, I’m counting Saturday as the first day because of the great things that happened and are on the horizon!

InvestComics Publications received the last shipment (First printing) of our first ever publications comic ‘The Dawning #1’. Look for an InvestComics Newsletter coming in your inbox to be the first to snag a copy! InvestComics will be giving out FREE SIGNED copies to those who make and send a short video (5 to 10 seconds) professing your love to InvestComics. Send your video to either dropbox or wetransfer to contact@trendingpopculture.com. Be sure to sign up to get your newsletter at the end of this article. 

Palm ConSaturday InvestComics visited an old friend with a dream and a passion coming to life for him. Martin Pierro of Cosmic Times Publications has done something that has been sorely missed in the West Palm Beach Florida area for quite some time. He started a comic convention appropriately named ‘Palm Con’ 3 years ago. The first 2 years were held in the American Polish Club in Lake Worth Florida. The show quickly outgrew the space needed in the first year, forcing to rent more space the second year, and now this year the show resided in the West Palm Beach Convention Center! Yes Martin is on to something here. In speaking with Martin for the brief few minutes we had at the show (he was a runnin’), you can see and feel the tenseness of the hard work he put into this show. He’s worked hard for this and it shows. In speaking with Andra Walt (mama), one can hear the proudness ooze off of every word, and justly so. Martin Pierro’s Palm Con has arrived.

InvestComics was invited to the event and came out with a few pictures and some video. Those will come out in the days to come. Overall the show had a nice crowd and people were really enjoying themselves. The guest list included Ethan Van Sciver, Deep Roy, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, Allen Bellman, Jose Delbo, Carlos Castellanos, Jeff Dekal, Jessis Melero, Vinnie Tartamella, Creature Entertainment, and a host of others.

As already said, Martin Pierro is obviously on to something here. The West Palm Beach area was in dire need of some sort of comic book entertainment forum and Martin will provide this to the genre for years to come. I personally am very proud of him and look forward to the years ahead. Thanks for the invite Palm Con, I had a blast!

There will be some more news on the horizon from InvestComics, so sit tight. It’s very exciting, but cannot speak about anything until confirmation comes in. Such a tease right?

Let’s head into the DC 3D books for this week. Seems like forever now with these books no? How’s that saying go? Too much of a good thing is bad for you?  Well what seemed to be a fun idea is starting to run its course. The 3D covers are nice and all, but the 90’s are calling and they want real comic book covers back.

As InvestComics has done for the collectors each week regarding the 3D covers, we will present the comic and the first appearance of the villain takeover of that particular book. As the weeks pass, it looks as though the field is getting very thinned out. But this shouldn’t deter the collector, it only takes that ONE book to hit and you have chaos within the aftermarket. Be smart about which books to pick up as far as the speculation market goes, the story and the actual character (and print run sometimes) is what causes “that” particular comic to uptick. Not because of a pretty cover.

InvestComics – DC 3D Hot Pick Covers 9-25-13

[scrollGallery id=307]

Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #23.2 – Wonder Woman never really had the rouge gallery that stood out from most, and this week it’s a case in point with ‘First Born’ taking over the WW book. First Born debuted in Wonder Woman #12 (New 52).

Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – Metallo, another forgettable character takes on Superman in this takeover. Metallo makes his first appearance in Action Comics #252 (1959). Cover by Curt Swan.

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.4 – Staying with the Superman talk we have another one of those huh? Characters. The much bigger purple blob thing names ‘Parasite’ visits Supes. Back in 1966’s Action Comics #340, Parasite wasn’t on the roids yet and wore green shorts. The big question is will Parasite wear his green shorts in the new Superman Parasite book?? The tension mounts!

Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #23.2 – Moving right along here, Ocean Master, yes Ocean Master will give Aquaman his problems in his own book this week. Ocean Master. Okay, just like saying that for some reason. OM first appeared in Aquaman #29 (1966). All joking aside, maybe OM will be Aquaman’s nemesis in a film or television show one day. Image that…?

Justice League (2011) #23.4 – The ultra-cool Secret-Society will have the rights to the new JL book this week. Look for Secret Society of Super-Villains #1 from 1976 for their first appearance.

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – One of four Batman titles coming out this week. Overkill? Anyway, one of Batman’s biggest adversaries to ever come along after Bats was introduced all of those many moons ago was Bane. Just like Spidey had Venom, Bats has Bane. Not saying that the rest of their rouge galleries are a weak one, but to have a villain come out of the modern era and make such an impact like they have is a big deal. Bane has already been covered in two Batman films. Now granted the first one doesn’t really count, but it did happen and that accounts for something. It wasn’t until the second go around that Bane became the total bad as* that the character should have portrayed. The villain was spot on in The Dark Knight Rises, a fantastic film and a fantastic villain. Do yourself a favor, if you do not already own the first appearance of Bane in Bane: Vengeance of Bane Special #1 (1993), you need to. Although a big print run keeps the cost down a bit, it’s still a wonderful book to have.

Justice League Of America Vol 3 #7.4 – Just like the aforementioned, Black Adam is a total bad as*. This dude needs to appear in a film, stat! Check out Adam’s debut in Marvel’s Family #1 from 1945 (Fawcett Comics).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – DC’s answer to Marvel’s Lizard came some 20 years later in 1983’s Detective Comics #523. Look for Killer Croc’s debut here.

Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.4 – Too bad the Green Lantern didn’t get as much love as it did. Fans were not at all pleased with the film as box office numbers would show. Sinestro however will remain a main staple in the GL gallery. Look carefully through Green Lantern #7 (1961) and there you will see Sinestro’s first appearance.

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #3.1 – Speaking of movies fans are not receptive to, the new Superman/Batman movie seems to be getting dumped on because of the actor choice Ben Affleck playing Batman. Don’t forget that InvestComics supports Ben as Batman on the Facebook page: ‘Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben’. Click HERE to join the crusade against the naysayers! Any who, within this takeover issue we have the only “thing” to ever “unofficially” kill Superman. Doomsday first appeared in Superman: Man of Steel #17 (1992). Just like Bane and Venom for their respective rouge galleries, Doomsday has become “that villain” within the Superman gallery. A late, modern introduction that has caught on and never let go. Doomsday in the Superman/Batman movie? Hey you never know!

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – One of the hottest “surprise” issues to come out recently is the Catwoman #23 (New 52) book. The aftermarket went bonkers when word got out that this comic contained the first appearance of the Joker’s daughter. This week the Joker’s daughter will make here “second appearance”. Don’t miss this comic, it’s definitely a sellout book.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – The last of the Bat books has Man-Bat gracing the 3D cover. Sometimes a simple switching of a word can create a new character! Although not a recognizable, oh my God I need to buy the issue with Man-Bat in it, it’s the first appearance that’s more appealing than anything. Check out the debut of Man-Bat in Detective Comics #400 (1970). A story drawn by legend Neal Adams and a classic cover by Neal to boot! Good stuff here.

Now…..

InvestComics Hot Picks 9-25-13

[scrollGallery id=308]

Marvel Comics debuts the new Sun-Girl in Superior Spider-Man Team Up (2013) #3. Sun-Girl is a great looking 70 year old character. Check out the first appearance from back in 1948’s Sun-Girl #1 from Timely Publications! That’s pre-Marvel folks.

Also from Marvel,  check out Infinity Heist (2013) #1 and Punisher Trial of Punisher (2013) #1. With any kind of buzz with these two comics, they will be sold out very quick.

Speaking of sold out comics, if these comics bring it, expect the aftermarket to be a buzzing. Farlaine The Goblin (2013) #1 stands right in front of this line (Interview right now on InvestComics with creator Studio Farlaine!! Click HERE!). Sold out at Diamond Distributors, get your hands on this comic if you can. Zombie Annihilation One Shot from SILVER PHOENIX ENTERTAINMENT is also sold out at the distributor level. Other Dead (2013 IDW) #1, Powerpuff Girls (2013 IDW) #1 are sold out as well.

On the cusp of second prints are Sex Criminals (2013) #1, Super (2013) #1, Rat Queens (2013 Image) #1, and Planet of the Apes Giant (2013 Boom) #1. As always mentioned here, Image Comics have been on a serious roll lately. Their products have been outstanding. Watch out for the sell outs of their comics, because interest will eventually reach the “another” medium as Hollywood will start picking off some of their stories.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 9-4-13

(Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and more so for entertainment purposes. Any opinions or expression of investments should be used as a judgement upon the investor, not InvestComics.

HUGE Hot Picks List. DC Comics runs the table this week with their 3D extravaganza, but more on that in a bit……

Okay don’t mean to rehash, but there is a reason here. Stick with me…..A couple of weeks ago when Warner Brothers announced the signing of Ben Affleck as the latest man to don the cowl, the internet basically broke in pieces of whining fanboys. I can say honestly, I haven’t witnessed an outcry like this in a while. Well since the last major announcement of a superhero casting. Say Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and on and on. I could not believe that I read about a petition being set up to have Ben Affleck removed as Batman. It’s an absolute travesty that fanboys will go this far, or even complain as much as they have in the first place. This is what Warner Brothers decided. There is no changing it. Get a grip, move on. The out lash was so compelling to me that I decided to create a new Facebook page called Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben. If you are a supporter of Ben Affleck as Batman, you should get over to that page and tell any of your friends as well. If not, well that’s fine! You’re entitled to your opinion, but please do not make a fool of yourself. So why do I bring this up today you may ask? I had a few moments to put together a fun 52 second video regarding fanboys that feel compelled to cry about everything. It was done out of fun, no malicious intent here so chill. Watch the video and pass it around. Maybe it will give that whiny fanboy a wakeup call that the world is not going to collapse around them because of a casting for a superhero movie. Get over it.

InvestComics has booked their flight to New York Comic Con 2013! This trip will include a first. An InvestComics team! Rafael Rosario of Ratchet City Comics will be accompanying InvestComics as a Press member. This is a big deal folks. This means more interviews, more coverage, and best of all….more prizes!

….And a couple of news items are coming down the pike from InvestComics soon so stay close to the vest via the InvestComics Newsletter and InvestComics Facebook page!

Let’s be honest here, DC Comics is doing a tremendous job with their money grab. Give them credit here. One thing many have to have to understand is that DC Comics is a business and they do not care what fans think. They really don’t. This is a business first business. Do not kid yourselves into believing that the fans make an iota impact in their decision making. If it did, well the New 52 would never have been. Case in point this week with the 3D cover gimmick. Most readers and collectors haven’t seen the likes of this type of gimmick since the 90’s glow in the dark covers. Fun stuff! So the question here is, does the gimmick destroy the content on the inside? Well that’s for each individual to decide for themselves. What is known about this gimmick is that fans are eating it up like candy! Every single 3D cover is SOLD OUT! That’s right folks! SOLD OUT!

So what does this mean to you? Well this means that if you want to make some serious cash, this would be a fine time to do so. Two things to do here to make the most bang for your buck. One; grab the most popular 3D “character” cover and get it graded by CGC. A high grade is extremely important here. Two; after you get the most “popular”, try to figure out through the numbers game (Diamond Distributors) which comic received the lowest print run. This will be a quick sale for you right now, but in the long haul, you should hold onto one because when the aftermarket settles down, it’s the “rare” book everyone loves. Again, the only way you maximize your monies here is with a very high grade.

Here at InvestComics, I decided to have some fun and look at each individual 3D cover and pair it up with the first appearance of the villain takeover. Scroll through the covers and see them side by side, pretty awesome. So without further ado in alphabetical order………

DC 3D Comics 9-4-13

[scrollGallery id=293]

Forever Evil #1Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 features a Cyborg Superman takeover. Cyborg’s first (not Hank) is in Adventures of Superman #466 (1990).

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Joker cover, and his debut of course came in Batman #1 (1940).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Two-Face cover, his first is in Detective Comics #66 (1942).

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Ventriloquist takeover – her first; Detective Comics #583 (1988), with art by Norm Breyfogle and cover by Mike Mignola, very nice.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Poison Ivy cover – her debut; Batman #181 (1966).

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #15.1 – Desaad cover – First appearance; Forever People #2 (1971), Jack Kirby nuff’ said.

Flash (2011) #23.1 – Grodd – Debuted in Flash #106 (1959).

Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #23.1 with Count Vertigo; first appeared in World’s Finest #251 (1978).

Showcase #73Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Relic. First appearance in Green Lantern #21 (2013)

Justice League (2011) #23.1 – The BEST of the 3D bunch right here. The villain of all DC villains – Darkseid! Refer back to the InvestComics article ‘InvestComics Hot Pick: Single Issue – Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134’ to better understand just how important Darkseid is in the DC Universe.

Justice League Dark (2011) #23.1 – The Creeper first appeared in Showcase #73 (1968). Created by Legend Steve Ditko!

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.1 – Deadshot first appeared in Batman #59 (1950). A highly underrated character.

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.1 – Bizarro debuted in Superboy #68 (1958).

So that’s all of the 3D madness this week for you. The one comic that will claim responsibility for the villain takeover this week would be Forever Evil (2013 DC) #1. Although with Geoff Johns at the helm here, probably talking a great storyline folks, but as far as monetarily in a few years? Forever Evil #1 will not command much at all, neither will many of these 3D books. Do not hold onto these for long term investments, you will get burned. This is a gimmick upswing; the collector needs to monitor the aftermarket here to make the most on their profits. Stay close to the market, check often and dump when the time is right.

InvestComics Hot Picks 9-4-13

So what else is going on in DC land this week? How about Batman Black and White (2013) #1? All variants for this particular comic are SOLD OUT. With various star artist and writers on this book, and coupled with some spectacular variant covers these comics will do very well in the aftermarket. Get your hands on these. Also from DC we get a royal rumble of sorts; DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe (2013) #1. There are plenty of copies available still, but boy this is going to be a fun comic.

With DC Comics running the table this week, there are a few Marvel Comics to check out and an Indie book NOT to be missed! More on that Indie book in a little bit.

Marvel will bring Spider-Man 2099 back this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #17! Spidey 2099 first came onto the scene in Spider-Man 2099 #1 (1992). However, this week with Superior Spider-Man #17 making the 2099 comeback a big deal, the variants have SOLD OUT. Once again, get your hands on these beautiful variants. They have upside here. Spidey 2099 will be popular once again, so don’t miss the train.

A major X-Men crossover event begins this week (coincidence I think not). Check out X-Men Battle of the Atom (2013) #1 and guess what? Every single variant here is SOLD OUT! ….While the covers are gorgeous, no longevity here in the aftermarket. This is just another crossover event that will probably get many fanboy panties in a bunch anyway.

Venom (2011 Marvel) #40 will focus on the new character Mania. Check HER out. And rounding out Marvel this week; Avengers A.I. (2013) #3 will debut a new world named The Diamond.

Speaking of diamond……..

Anyone remember what happened when Star Wars #1 was released a few months back? Yes, it went nuts in the aftermarket. How about Dark Horse going with Star Wars (2013 Dark Horse) Lucas Draft #1 this week? All variants on this comic are SOLD OUT. This comic is the “rough draft” of the original screenplay of the movie. Seems like a little bit of fluff here, but we’re in! This will be an Indie book not to be missed this week! Here are a few more Indie’s to check out this week; Invincible (2003) #105 solicit reads that this is a big jumping on point if you’d like, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #1 (All variants SOLD OUT), Reality Check (2013 Image) #1 (Lots of copies left here, but Image Comics has been of fire as of late), Hit (2013 Boom Studios) #1 (Not many copies left to be had), Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #1 (Same here, not many copies left), and Love Stories To Die For (2013 Image) #1 (Cover A sits with only 9 copies in the warehouse while there are plenty of cover B’s).

Whew!! That’s a big week!

DaredevilYou hear that? You hear the screams in the distance? The whining? The crumbling of the walls? The collective sigh?

The internet may have finally broken. Yes Ben Affleck will be the new Batman in the Superman vs. Batman film. The simple answer to this news? So what? The drama has gotten to such a fever pitch that there is actually a petition to sign to have Mr. Affleck removed from the film. Really?? Is this so important that it warrants this type of dramatic reaction? Everyone really needs to calm down, seriously……

With all of the negative publicity that the news has received, InvestComics has taken the “Team Ben” approach. We love the underdog! So with that comes a fun Facebook page that is called Affleck as Batman I’m with Team Ben. If you are tired of the naysayers and you support the underdog (Ben Affleck) be sure to JOIN the Facebook page that InvestComics created. Everyone can post various meme’s, articles, or just comment about their feelings about the Warner Brothers hire. Good or bad. Join by clicking right HERE. Remember, have fun! Why so serious?

On the heels of this news came the announcement of Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Many of the aforementioned fans weighed in with this news as well, this time with more of a positive outlook. Bryan is said from multiple reports to have signed a 6 to 10 film deal. That’s a whole lotta Lex!

The winner of the signed Jimmy Palimiotti Fury #1 was Mike Villegas. Congratulations Mike! Be sure to sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out the next contest. This one is sweet!!

This week Marvel fans are treated to an introduction in Captain America (2012 7th Series) #10. Meet Godzola! Hmm, not that keen on the name, but we shall wait and see. The possible return of Binary happens in Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #15. If you feel so inclined to find Binary’s very first appearance, you will find it in Uncanny X-Men #164 (1982). This is the part of the historic Chris Claremont/Dave Cockrum run. Fast forwarding some 7 years later with Chris Claremont still at the helm, Uncanny X-Men #251 (1989) strikes one of the classic X covers to date. Wolverine nailed to the X. How about this week’s Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) #11 striking a resemblance? Marc Silvestri killed it back in 1989 and John Cassaday does a superb job this week.        

Batman Incorporated Special (2013 DC) #1 variant cover by Ethan Van Sciver is sold out. It would be a good idea to try and get your hands on that if possible. Bat-Cow will also make her solo debut here! Bat-Cow’s debut was in Tiny Titans #17 (2009) in case you were wondering.

….And speaking of sold out number one issues, Overtaken (2013 Aspen) #1 is teetering on a second run soon, as is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Hundred Penny Press Edition – Cover A Dan Duncan, Quantum And Woody #1 (3rd Printing – 1st printing recommended on InvestComics Hot Picks), and Arcane Secrets #1 (recommended last week on InvestComics Hot Picks).

That’s it for this week! Be sure to stay close because this week (maybe) the NEW contest will debut. Win a modern number one comic book, Hot series, signed!! Sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out first!

See you soon, Invest wisely.
