Empress #1 – This “Saga” like comic from Mark Millar will be sold out in no time. Watch for this Marvel imprint from Icon to take off. One of the key components to its success will be that it has to be consistent on its release. Millar’s Nemesis, also from Icon, was a semi-success, but lost many fans because of delays. It could have been a bigger book (should have been), but delays will kill things fast. Empress + on time = success.

Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 – Almost every week InvestComics preaches the gospel about Star Wars comics from Marvel. We say to buy them because they are fantastic reads and for the possible first appearance that may explode at any time. This week we have a character from the latest Star Wars movie making their first appearance in a Star Wars comic. What more do you want here? Okay, maybe have your wife/girlfriend or maybe read it with your kid? That would be cool too.

Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 – Darkseid’s daughter, Grail, will be making her indelible mark within the DC universe this Wednesday. DC might be priming her for bigger things to come. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #418 for more info on this and about Grail’s first appearance.

Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1 – One of DC’s all time greatest artist will grace us with his presence in this book. Jim Lee will pencil and do the cover art here. What more do you need? Refer back to the new Star Wars comic if you need more answers on that.

Superman #51 – A new story line begins; Super League. Be on the lookout for possible new villains or heroes in this epic Superman crossover event. We’ll probably say “told you so!”

Showcase #75

Click To Buy Now

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details)

IC 100 Club Pick: Showcase #75 (1968) 7.0. This comic represents the first appearance and origin of Hawk and Dove. Story, cover and interior art from the legendary man himself, Steve Ditko. A 7.0 grade for only $90, with FREE shipping, gets this beauty in your hands. This a must in your collection.

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

Look for writer Mark Millar to turn things upside down with the debut of Empress #1 from Marvel’s imprint Icon. It’s already getting billed as Marvel Comics version of “Saga”. And we all know how Saga turned out. Mark will introduce fans to a whole new sci-fi world. Hollywood LOVES Mark Millar and we wonder if Marvel Studios would ever pick this up and run with it. Who knows? It could happen. Either way, this is an introduction comic in the vein of Saga, one to watch for here! This will be big.

The new Black Panther series makes its debut this week; Black Panther Vol 6 #1. The longest running Black Panther series lasted 62 issues. Many limited series, one shots, and team-up books over the span of six volumes for the character. Will this series ever make past 62 issues? We’ll see. But the first issue here is accompanied by an abundance of variants to choose from. Pointless, and the need for 13 different covers (at last count, probably more) is a bit excessive. The creative team makes for a must get though. Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Brian Stelfreeze will bring fans back again and again.

Marvel will introduce a new Star Wars character into their library. Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 will have the first comic book appearance of Poe Dameron. Poe appeared in the latest Star Wars flick and now he makes his way into the funnies. Regular InvestComics readers know how we feel about the Star Wars comics. Buy them all! This one here is so obvious that if you miss it, shame on you! Besides Empress #1, this is the other big Marvel book this week.

This week’s Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 will focus on Darkseid’s daughter Grail. A book simmering in the back issue bins on Ebay is Justice League #40 (2015), the first appearance of Darkseid’s daughter Grail. With DC maybe headed towards a Darkseid movie appearance, who’s to say they won’t take a page out of Marvel’s film franchise and include his daughter, a’la Marvel’s Nebula (Thanos). Right now JL #40 might be a gimme at $15….the same price as some worthless variant this week. Maybe getting Justice League #40 instead of a pretty cover makes more sense. Just saying.
There are plenty of DC comic covers by John Romita Jr. to choose from this week. DC is proud to have John Romita Jr. on their side instead of those “other guys”. Some may say or think this is the first time John is playing for the other side, but fans of InvestComics know we’re going to do our research! John Romita Jr. first drew some DC characters back in 1994. Not just “any” characters, he penciled Batman, Robin, Joker, among some others from the DCU. The comic was Batman/Punisher: Deadly Knights. Art by John Romita Jr. and written by Chuck Dixon. John also contributed to the awesome cover. Great comic, great story, Romita Jr.’s first DC work.

While on topic regarding DC’s past history. Bloodlines #1 debuts with writer J.T. Krul and artist Kenneth Marion at the helm. Bloodlines was a huge crossover storyline that took almost 6 months to hammer out back in 1993, spanning from August to December. The very first Bloodlines book was Lobo Annual #1 Bloodlines Outbreak. This comic introduced the Bloodlines Parasites.

Mr. Jim Lee will provide artwork for this week’s winner of the longest comic book title; Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1. Yes, THE Jim Lee will be penciling this comic. The Lee sketch cover is already sold out.

Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #7 features the first appearance of the NEW Nightwing.
It looks like Superman #51 could possibly introduce some new characters within its major new storyline crossing over all of the Superman titles; Super League Part 1 begins here. Keep an eye out on this series for new characters and villains.
Green Arrow will battle Deathstroke in Green Arrow #51. Fantastic covers from Patrick Zircher (regular cover) and John Romita Jr. (variant).

Grizzly Shark #1 from Image Comics looks interesting. Grizzly Shark first appeared in Sea Bear and Grizzly Shark #1 (2010). This Origin debut comic is written by Robert Kirkman. Ever heard of him? Art from the 2010 and 2016 Shark books; Ryan Ottley.
A new Think Tank series will start this Wednesday; Think Tank #1 (Image Comics). The original series started in 2012; Think Tank #1.

IC 100 Club Pick: Black Panther #1 (1977) 8.5. Here’s a beauty waiting to be bought for only $100.00. His first solo comic. Black Panther still has upside. His new comic coming out, a yet to be seen appearance in Cap’s Civil War movie, and a solo movie. Yes more upside for a character that hasn’t even hit its stride yet in film and the new comic book is getting all kinds of hype too. Black Panther is and will be the real deal.

Fanboys, please do not email us or make fanboy comments on our social media or here. If you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading please. If you’ve ever had a heated debate/fight/argument/cried (as an adult) over who is stronger Hulk or Superman or anything similar resembling a deep love of a comic character and know nothing about business, then please skip the opening here.

Have you’ve seen the new Deadpool movie? Well if haven’t, you probably have seen the aftermarket going bonkers after its release. New Mutants #87 (first full appearance of Cable) is quickly becoming the NEW New Mutants #98. This isn’t a bad thing if you’re on the side of the seller. If you’re a buyer, well you’re going to have to pay a severe premium in order to get your hands on the Cable book if you want it. Here’s the thing, and we’ve said it time and time again within the blogs of the InvestComics website. The New Mutants #98 comic is overpriced and so is (will be) New Mutants #87. The absurdity in pricing for these comics is almost comical actually.
Here are some quick numbers. Let us remind you here, CBCS does not have a census. Which means these numbers are probably much higher. These are CGC numbers…..
There are a total of 1000 New Mutants #87 graded at 9.8. 1087 graded at 9.6. A total of 3804 graded so far. That’s currently, that number will climb steadily and remember, this does not include CBCS. New Mutants #98; 2307 graded at 9.8, 2806 graded at 9.6 and a total of 9514 total graded. Probably over 10,000 graded counting CBCS.
Doctor Strange #169 (1968) 30 graded at 9.8, 70 graded at 9.6 and a total of 1063 graded. How is it that New Mutants #98 is rivaling this comic? Now all the fanboys got their panties in a bunch. Relax. We understand it’s a popularity contest right now, but here is some truth that the other wannbe InvestComics sites will not tell you. The Doctor Strange book is by far and away a better sound investment. Instead of spending $400/$500 on a first appearance on a comic(s) that are well documented as to having many copies available, use your business tactics and understand that supply and demand will eventually equate into the equation here and you will lose if you hold onto your comic a bit too long. It’s inevitable, you will lose money on New Mutants #87 and #98 because you refused to let it go. Anyone spending large amounts of money to have these comics in their possession, better have a plan to sell at an opportune time or else you will be in the red. Just in case you haven’t notice, we’ll say it, the comic book market has been and continues to see a massive correction. Especially the moderns. That first appearance of Spider-Gwen (variant) that InvestComics advised AGAINST buying at ridiculous prices is more than $300/$400/$500 below its asking price from more than a year ago. InvestComics warned our fans, while the other fanboy sites encouraged the buying frenzy. We’re here to spill truth and guide you, not help you lose money. Do not give into the hype of a comic or comics that saw prints of upwards to 225k a piece (New Mutants #98 and a bit less for New Mutants #87). That’s a quarter of a million copies of ONE comic book. What does this mean actually? Well it means there are several dealers and collectors that are sitting on long boxes full of Deadpool and Cable first appearance comic books. Can we say the same for a classic comic like Doctor Strange #169? No we cannot. Not hating on the first Deadpool or Cable here, but use common sense when spending that hard earned money. Realize that these two particular comics have a ceiling AND more importantly a ground floor. If you’re a buyer at a premium for ANY 90’s (*ahem* Doomsday *ahem* Apocalypse) or modern book), you have to know when to dump it or when the correction in the market does in FACT happen, you’ll be in the red and you’ll never make that money back. We’ve said this before, we’ll say it again. the real money is in Bronze/Silver/Golden. And one more thing. About Doomsday and Apocalypse, most likely one trick ponies. We’ll see them once and they’ll fade into obscurity never to be seen again on the big screen, thus driving that premium price back to the correct area.

And the award for longest title of the week goes to…….Hellboy and the BPRD 1953 Beyond The Fences #1! With this award the readers will get Writers Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson along with artist’s Paolo Rivera and Joe Rivera. Hellboy: Year Two. Yep, we’re in.

Maybe DC Comics received a special bundle price for the amount of Neal Adams variant covers we’re getting this month. Here are the covers this week from the legend himself; Flash #49, Deathstroke #15 (the Tyler Kirkman regular cover kills), Aquaman #49, Superman Lois And Clark #5, We Are Robin #9, Teen Titans #17, Cyborg #8, Grayson #17, and Superman #49.
And for the second week in a row, a Neal Adams Superman Wonder Woman variant comic is sold out. Check out Superman Wonder Woman #26 as Korean artist extraordinaire Kim Jung Gi pencils his second issue with the big three (Supes, WW, and Bats). We informed our fans last week about Kim Jung Gi. This guy is the real deal. Kim actually does the cover art for one of these variants (pictured here).
The real reason we have Neal Adams overload this month is because Superman The Coming Of The Supermen #1 will be coming out. Neal Adams will be the writer/artist here for the six issue mini-series. Fans are looking forward to a boldly told story and art from Neal. He will not disappoint here.

After a slight blip, Batman Dark Knight III The Master Race #3 will be back on schedule. And with it, as usual, a ridiculous amount of variant covers. All the covers are nice, nothing so riveting that you’ll need to pluck down a months worth of allowance for, but the Midtown Comics Greg Capullo cover is cool (pictured here).

Comic fans will be introduced to an all new mutant on new comic book day. Check out the introduction of Bailey Hoskins in X-Men Worst X-Man Ever #1. Definitely a comic to pay attention to.

It’s up to Faith and Valiant to keep them now.

Better get your hands on these indie’s; Straitjacket #4 (Amigo Comics) is sold out. Gingerdead Man #1 (Action Lab/Danger Zone) is sold out. Plus Ultra #2 (Overground Comics) is sold out.

We’re about to approach a heavy topic here, but it’s reality and it’s part of this characters make up so we need to discuss it.

As racism is so prevalent these days, Stan Lee and the mighty Marvel crew back in the 1960’s were tackling the issue head on through funny books. They obviously did not stand for the hate mongering that existed so front and center back then. They took a stand. Not to say they don’t today, but back then taking a stand on racism was more of an outside the box thing to do and a noble one at that. As it is noble today too.

Nowhere is the topic of racism more predominant than with the character Black Panther. The first African born superhero character debuted in 1966 and Marvel Comics made sure the readers knew that racism was going to be a huge part of the character development. The Marvel crew took the same path during war times with Hitler and the Nazi’s. Showing how the hatred will always lose because of the ignorance, the non-education, the intolerance, and the emotional disconnect toward humanity.

Yes the Black Panther character is, if not one of the most important comic characters to ever be created. He wasn’t an alien from another planet with super human strength, he doesn’t have mutant powers, no he was not accepted because of the altering difference of powers he possessed over a human being or the knowledge of him being an alien, he wasn’t accepted because the color of his skin. Sounds ridiculous to even write that.

Although we’ve all come so far, there is still more work to do. Racist are not born, they are taught. It’s an infectious disease that spreads because of the rhetoric gospel taught by ignorance. Wake up it’s 2015.

Below is a checklist of some key appearances by the Black Panther. As always, there will be books that are not listed. Please help the collectors by writing your entry below in the comment section if you want to contribute.
