Here’s a speculation article that will run periodically regarding which comics we feel should be the next to hit the movies, television or become an animated show. Will any of these comics see the light of day? Possibly. Possibly not. InvestComics throughout its years (10 years, longest running speculative website on the internet and the number one speculative website) has called a MANY comics (and characters) to hit the screen WAY before they were ever announced to do so. Guardians of The Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Warlock, Dormammu, Kick Ass, Thanos, Nemesis, Crossbones, just to name a few that have come to light and or will be coming. We’re not saying that these comics in these articles are guarantees to ever come to fruition, but these are our choices we feel deserve some airplay….in some form. Even a video game too.

Please realize that all of this is a speculative look at the hobby. Maybe some of these will become reality, maybe most of these won’t, but understand that this is pure speculation. Read the disclaimer. Read the disclaimer. Oh and read the disclaimer and please have fun.

Rom (Movie/Toon/Game) – Marvel Comics made the Rom toy a cult favorite comic book. Now IDW will pick up the mantle and start an entirely new race and galaxy realm without any Dire Wraiths (Marvel owns that). Although a Rom based movie would seem a bit campy probably to make, we thought that of the Transformers idea too, but that worked. Maybe an animated show would fair better here.
*Rom #1 (1979) Writer Bill Mantlo and art by Sal Buscema. Cover art by Joe Rubinstein and Fran Miller. 75 issues. Rom’s first venture ever outside of his book came in Power Man and Iron Fist #73 (1981). Cover by Frank Miller.

Power Pack (Movie/Game) – As InvestComics called this comic out back in 2010, who would have known Marvel Studios would report directly to Disney eventually? We did of course. Eventually Disney will take over complete creative control, so with that said we get Power Pack on this list. A made for movie comic book right in Disney’s wheelhouse. It’s probably a matter of WHEN this will get done, not a matter of IF.
*Power Pack #1 (1984) First appearance. Writer Louise Simonson and art by June Brigman. Cover art by June Brigman and Bob Wiacek. Lasted 62 issues.

Micronauts (Movie/Game) – This toy line went on to spawn a plethora of comic books from many different companies, but it’s Marvel Comics who got things started in 1979. A movie would seem a fantastic way to go here. Michael Bay?
*Micronauts #1; First appearance. Bill Mantlo writes, art work by Michael Golden. Cover by Dave Cockrum and Al Milgrom. Lasted 59 issues.

Moon Knight (Movie/TV/Game) – InvestComics has been on this character since the inception of the website 10 years ago. If there is one character we feel that will guarantee to breakout into its own movie or television series, this dude right here is it. (A rare thing to get any sort of guarantees here on InvestComics). Check out the ultimate Moon Knight checklist from InvestComics right HERE. You will not find a better list. We guarantee it.
*First appeared in Werewolf By Night #32 (1975). First solo comic; Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976).

Alpha Flight (Movie) – Canada’s bad as* team needs to get their due. An absolute breakout film if it would ever get done. This team is the real deal.
*First appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #120 (1979). Alpha Flight #1 (1983) was written by John Byrne, art by John Byrne and cover by Byrne and Terry Ausin. Lasted 130 issues. If Alpha Flight ever takes flight and makes it to the big screen, Alpha Flight #1 will be the equivalent of New Mutants #98 in the sense that although there is a major overprint run on the book, it’ll command big dollars in the aftermarket.

Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner (Movie) – No stranger to InvestComics readers here. covered a few times over the years (BEFORE Disney became the official bosses recently) that Disney has conquered land and space on the big screen. Just a matter of time before they hit one of their favorite places; water. So many successful films for the Mouse company taking place in the depths of water. How about that first live action water superhero movie Disney? It starts right here with Prince Namor. It has to.
*First appearance Motion Picture Funnies Weekly Volume 1 #1 (1939). Fantastic Four #4; first Silver Age Namor. Stan Lee writes, art by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and cover by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Sol Brodsky. Just like InvestComics informed buyers to buy the first Inhumans at ANY grade in the past few years, buy this comic book at any grade, doesn’t matter. Buy it. The Sub Mariner #1 (1968) comic is definitely one to have in your collection once the movie finally comes to fruition. No doubt here (another guarantee). The series lasted 72 issues.

The Pro – (Movie/TV) Here is an awesome movie or HBO/AMC television show waiting to happen. A prostitute superhero tries to find her way within the grand scheme of things with a baby in tow. A cable comedy series that would kill. This comic story is not suitable for all readers. If you’re easily offended, this book is NOT for you. A movie here would be good, but leaving audiences wanting more probably, so a television series would be the better route here.
*The Pro (2002) from Image Comics; Written by Garth Ennis, art by Amanda Connor and cover by Connor/Jimmy Palmiotti.

For many years on this site, InvestComics has spoken about Marvel’s White Knight. Now he gets the Spotlight treatment. This checklist is the most extensive Moon Knight checklist on the internet. What you will find are many first appearances, key books, creator books, covers, etc. It’s absolutely a bookmark spot on your pc/phone.

So why Moon Knight? As said before, for many years InvestComics has spoken highly of this character and waiting for the moment that he breaks loose. InvestComics feels now is the time to give Moon Knight his due on the site and dedicate an entire article/checklist on him. We feel that MK is as close to breaking out as he’s ever been. A television announcement? A major motion picture announcement? Either way, it will be fantastic news for collectors and readers that follow Moon Knight.

A complex character that rivals DC’s Batman; hence “the White Knight”. Imagine if and possibly when Marvel Studios decides to go very dark, go in the direction of the Batman lure. They have their character right here. They have the history since 1975. The story is all there, the darkness, the emotion, the violence, the struggle. Let’s understand one thing here though. While the comparison is being made, he is not Batman. He never will be, so fanboys please relax. Batman is its own entity, we get that. What InvestComics is saying is Moon Knight possesses the dark ambiance as a character, just like Batman. And it would be amazing to see Marvel Studios take on a “Batman” like character. The grittiness of Moon Knight, that is like the Batman lure into moving pictures somehow. Be it T.V. or the big screen. It is time to get the Moon Knight character out there.

Avengers #501 (2004) Here is that “second artist” being referred to from earlier. David Finch first draws Moon Knight in this comic. He, like Platt will be looked at as the “go-to” when and if the Moon Knight makes it to television or the movies. Their art/style will be the foundation to which the character is based on. David Finch returns on this list again…..

Marvel Team-Up #3 (2005) Robert Kirkman, yes that one, writes a story here that includes Moon Knight in it (as filler). The headliner here is Dr. Strange. Kirkman writes a Dr. Strange story. Yep it happened. Let’s get back to Moon Knight……

Marvel Team-Up #7 (2005) In here, Robert Kirkman writes a Spider-Man/Moon Knight story.

This feature will focus on comics that no one is talking about. Sometimes for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but that said these are comics that have been long forgotten and simply not thought of anymore. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down, but isn’t that the fun of it too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red Ebay links provided in this article or comic cover if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Atari Force (DC 1982) – I recall getting these super cool insert comics in my new Atari game that my mother bought for me. Not only did I have a new video game, I had a mini comic to boot! 48 pages too! Are you kidding me?! Heaven. Surprising so, these inserts are not exactly that scarce on Ebay. The mini freebie comic was written by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway, crazy right? Art by long time Spidey artist Ross Andru. Cover of issue number 1 by the late Dick Giordano. Issue number 3 and 5 cover by Gil Kane?! Wait it gets better. Gil Kane penciled issue #5 (Last in the series). A failed attempt to make it a regular ongoing series in 1984 lasted only 20 issues. A John Byrne cover for a feeler Atari Force Special #1 went by the wayside. And that was that, into obscurity they went.

Cloak and Dagger (Marvel Limited Series 1983) – This one time hot commodity way back in the early 80’s is not so hot these days. It’s a sad thing too. A unique team setup and potential to translate onto the big or small screen. Maybe some studio executive will wise up and see what a fantastic brand this could be. Or maybe not. The fans back in the 80’s sure did love them some Cloak and Dagger stories though. Top to bottom great creators on this mini-series. Terry Austin, Rick Leonardi and Bill Mantlo.

Sun Devils (DC Maxi-Series 1984) – Ah the good ol’ “maxi-series”. In the 80’s, not only did the “Limited Series” rule the roost, the maxi-series did as well. This fun story was brought to us by Gerry Conway and Dan Jurgens. 12 issues and done. Last known location was in 2007.

Camelot 3000 (DC Maxi-Series 1982) – When this comic hit in 82, boy was it big. If you were an aftermarket buyer here, you paid a premium. This series was so very hot. It was one of the first DC direct market comics. Nowadays, it’s that big tumbleweed passing by your television screen when Clint is about to put a cap in someone. The most puzzling thing here has to be why DC never capitalized on bringing it back for more. The fans craved it, but it fell on deaf ears. Probably a lot has to due with artist Brian Bolland maybe? Or writer Mike W. Barr? Maybe they only wanted to work together again on this project and it never came to fruition. It doesn’t matter at this point, but what does matter is this ridiculously fabulous story. Buy this series if you do not own it yet. Amazing writing and art here, an absolute winner.

Gargoyle (Marvel Limited Series 1985) – Nothing more here than a cool story here from team member of the Defenders; Gargoyle. Writer J.M. DeMatteis and art by Mark Badger. Oh yes and issue one features a Bernie Wrightson cover. Awesome.

Foolkiller (Marvel Limited Series 1990) – This fun 10 issue limited series was from the creator of Howard the Duck; Steve Gerber. Issue number 8 featured a Spider-Man appearance and cover. A good around 10 issues here with a cool character.

X-Men and the Micronauts (Marvel Limited Series 1984) – Not that anyone has really forgotten this series, but when was the last time you heard anyone talk about it? Exactly. An all-star creative team comprised of writers Chris Claremont/Bill Mantlo and artist Jackson Guice. Covers by Guice and Bob Wiacek. This too was a hot book back in the 80’s.

If the speculator is here with the thought that InvestComics will pick every comic that hits, even ones that sells out weeks later or become hot after the weekly article; is mistakenly off. This is in fact an entertainment/speculative site. Bottom line though, we have and always will be the best speculative web site on the planet.

What you read is 100% authentic. This material is 100% original content from InvestComics and does not borrow from any article(s) or comic website(s) for its content. Anything you read  from here on any other site that seems similar probably and most likely originated from here.

Please donate to creator Bill Mantlo…..

Growing up in the 80’s was the absolute best time of my life as a teenager. It was Bruce Springsteen, vibrant neon colors, baseball, and comic books. I always seemed to revert back to the comics for the peace of mind, the escape if you will. There were the usual suspects as far as creator’s go. Perez, Starlin, Byrne, Zeck, and Bill Mantlo. Mr. Mantlo brought some of the most riveting comic book writing to the genre back then for me. Comics like Contest of the Champions, Cloak and Dagger, Micronaunts, The Incredible Hulk, and one of my personal favorites of all time; ROM. He also was the co-creator of a character that will probably become the next biggest character to come out of the movies in a long time; Rocket Raccoon. Mr. Mantlo had his hand in many many more creations and comics than I could possibly list here.

Rom_ #1_Cloak_and_Dagger_ #1_Rocket_Raccoon_#1

Mr. Mantlo suffered a debilitating brain injury when he was struck by a car while rollerblading in 1992. Bill’s caregiver Michael needs our help. Here’s the thing folks, I write this because I honestly feel a personal connection with Mr. Mantlo. He introduced worlds to me that I escaped to each time I read his stories. I am grateful to him for that. He needs our help now. The comic book community’s help, the fans, the creators, the collectors, it doesn’t matter.

Often times InvestComics speaks about the worth of a comic book, the value. This here is about quality and value as well. Bill Mantlo needs his quality of life. Thanks to a friend that pointed out an article to me that creator Greg Pak wrote on his blog about Bill Mantlo needing help, I can now help expand the awareness. Jump to the Greg Pak blog by clicking HERE to get more insight on this story, donate as well as Mr. Pak’s own words. Donating whatever you can would help tremendously.

Our thoughts are with you Mr. Mantlo.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 5-29-13

(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 entertainment purposes. Please use your own discretion when investing.)

This week for the first time in a long while, the InvestComics Hot Picks sees no regular issue numbers appear. Only number one issues this week fans, oh and one zero issue. Let’s jump right in.

First and foremost, personal friend and big supporter of InvestComics, colorist Jeff Balke will be displaying his amazing work in Asylum (2013 Storm King) #1 coming out this week. I learned about this book about a year ago and have seen the progression of a fantastic comic. This is some of Jeff’s finest work to date. Mr. Balke was tapped recently to be a guest speaker at the University of Texas Arlington! Yes Jeff is boss. If you ever see him at your local comic convention, be sure to stop by and say hello to him and to Brandon. Two of the finest people you will ever meet at a show. If you want to check out everything Jeff Balke, click right HERE to jump to his website. I’m not just saying this because he’s a friend of mine, but Jeff Balke is one of the top colorist in the industry today. Take a look at his work and judge for yourself, you will arrive to the same conclusion I did years ago. This guy rocks! You know what else rocks? “John Carpenter’s” Asylum #1; written by the one and only Bruce Jones, with beautiful artwork by Leonardo Manco. Pick this comic up fans, it’s a winner!

Marvel Comics gives fans a $7.99 reprint comic this week called Captain Universe The Hero Who Could Be You (2013) #1. Captain Universe? Really? Okay cool…. we’re in! The comic covers at least seven different comics that the Cap has appeared in. You probably could get all seven issues out of some 50 cent long box, but who would want to go through that trouble right? So what’s the next best thing? What does this comic NOT cover? How about Captain Uni’s first appearance? Well lucky you have us right? Look for Micronauts #8 (1979). This once very hot series was at the forefront of many collectors’ pull list. With creator names like Michael Golden, Bob McLeod, and Bill Mantlo attached, it’s easy to know why now. Here’s the scoop with this comic, the Micronauts #8 issue. The CGC censes only has 33of these bad boys graded. That’s not a bad number right? Well with good, some bad sorry. Out of the 33 graded, 15 sit on the 9.8 scale. That’s a bit top heavy for only 33 books you may say. A couple of things to point out though, what if there are not that many 9.8’s left sitting out there? With the Marvel cosmic movies about to take center stage in the third phase (Yes the third phase will include the cosmic universe folks, you do know that right?) Who is to say that Captain Universe won’t be a part of it?? I personally will be adding this comic to my collection, because for a mere $9 book, it could pay large dividends down the line. Micronauts #8 is a comic you buy now and hold on to it for a while. Don’t expect anything big, until maybe Marvel announces Captain Universe will be a player on the big screen. And if none of this ever come to fruition, well then you have a nice first appearance to add to your collection from the creator’s mentioned earlier for only $9.

Staying on topic with legendary names like Golden, Mantlo, McLeod, Jones, and Carpenter, we also get Clive Barker into the mix this week. Check out New Genesis (2013 Boom) #1 and witness the new original series from Clive Barker that has nothing to do with Hellraiser. There is a limited signed edition (variant) and painted cover by Mr. Barker himself. See if you can get your hands on that. It’s a rare thing to get a signed comic from one of the masters of horror like Clive.

DC Comics has a bunch of number one issues to check out this week. There are six here on the InvestComics Hot Picks to be exact, 4 of which are annuals. One number one issue is a standout, but the quick list of annuals are: Red Hood and the Outlaws (2011) Annual #1, Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) Annual #1, Earth 2 (2012 DC) Annual #1 (New Batman Earth 2 debut!), and Catwoman (2011 4th Series) Annual #1. Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #1 round’s out five number one issues. Whew, that’s a lot huh? There is that ONE number one issue that you will need to get before it flies off the shelf. Wake (2013 DC) #1 written by Scott Snyder, this all new story will touch on horror, discovery, and the birth of human life. Yes Scott, we will buy, read and watch the demand go up in the aftermarket for this comic. True story, you’ll see.

Marvel Comics offers up the first ALL woman X-Men team book in X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #1. An all-female team in an X-“MEN” #1 comic, hmmm………female postal workers are called mail persons, not mailmen right? Just saying.

And wrapping thing up with our free-for-all number one issues this week are; Westwood Witches (2013 Amigo) #1 (don’t sleep on this one), King Conan Hour of the Dragon (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Adventure Time (2012 Kaboom) Annual #1 (remember what happened with the first issue of this series, won’t happen here though, but still a buy nonetheless), Realm Knights (2013 Zenescope) #1, and the lone zero issue from our friends at Action Lab Comics Pirate Eye Pirates Life (2013 Action Lab) #0!

That’s it for now. Be sure to sign up for the InvestComics Newsletter on the front page of the website, or below!
