Kevin Eastman of TMNT fame will co-write a new series coming out from Dynamite Entertainment; Cage Hero #1.

Also from Dynamite, James Bond fans will have something to celebrate besides the movie coming to a theater near you. A new comic; James Bond #1. The last variant count we have is up to 10, so plenty of pointless variants to choose from. We’d love to say to get your paws on the Jock variant, but we’re very unimpressed with the cover. Eye candy is nil.

Shane Davis’ Axcend #2, now that’s an impressive variant. And a cool comic too!

If you’re a person that follows the political landscape and you love demons, then Citizen Jack #1 (Image) is for you. Check out this crazy off-beat comic from writer Sam Humphries and artist Tommy Patterson.

There are a few reasons why to love Monstress #1 from Image Comics. First and foremost, it’s written by the talented Marjorie Liu. Second, it’s drawn by X-23 artist Sana Takeda. Third, it’s a new ongoing series, and fourth, it contains 66 (yes 66) pages of comic story with no interruptions. All for a $4.99 price point. There are currently none of these comics available on Ebay right now.

Paper Girls #2 will follow up Brian K Vaughan’s hit debut issue.

A gorgeous variant cover from Gabriele Dell Otto this week; Amazing Spider-Man (Vol 4) #3. Onward to volume five starring Deadpool in Deadpool (Vol 5) #1. Another relaunch within the new Marvel Universe. It is Deadpool though, so expect early price gauging on some of the variants, then back to reality. Lots of variants to choose from here.

Fans of the WWE will recognize the writer’s name in Drax #1. None other than CM Punk. He’s already done some work over at DC Comics (which we’ve covered), but this is the first time he’s doing creative work for Marvel Comics. The Ed McGuinness UFC cage variant would be a nice comic to get signed/graded if you’re a CM Punk fan. Thing is about the UFC gig, Punk announced he would be headed towards the UFC for some real deal fighting a long time ago (earlier this year?). Everyone is still waiting. That all said, a Drax solo comic should be a fun deal.

A new Hercules (Vol 4) #1 from Marvel arrives this Wednesday. The best of all volumes in the Marvel Universe came in 1982’s Hercules #1. The entire comic practically, creatively, was done by the awesome Bob Layton. It was a great four issue mini-series. In 2015, writer Dan Abnett and artist Luke Ross take a crack at it.

The biggest comic in all the land this week will be……brace yourself…..ready…..Howard The Duck (Vol 5) #1. I cannot believe I just typed that! And no we’re not drinking the Kool-Aid that some others may serve up. The mention of this comics has nothing to do pertaining to the character in this title. Simply because the latest craze in all the land; Gwenpool. And yes InvestComics gave speculators a heads up on her first appearance. (we’re awesome like that). Gwenpool will grace a variant cover and guess what? It’s sold out already! No surprise there. So the question here is not whether this will be a Scooby Doo #12 (which InvestComics did not talk about. Completed listings not sold on Ebay recently at $16.95/$14.95/$6.00) or a comic to buy and sell for a possible nice sum of money to buy a couple of weeks worth of your pull list. The answer is the latter. And here’s something for anyone really pushing the Howard The Duck character too. If you visit InvestComics on a regular basis, you will remember the Howard The Duck speculator clinic we put forth in March of this year. Remember, InvestComics is always in a business oriented mindset first and foremost when speaking about money for the speculator. We are looking out for your best interest. No fanboy stuff here, go elsewhere for that. So we are going to copy and paste the idea we put forth of why we think Howard The Duck will not come to fruition anytime soon on television or the movies.

..…..The Howard book will be a fun read though, so get it for at least that reason! Both are cool. So don’t get all hurt that I’m not that high on the Howard book. Speculation = opinion. Not that owning the Fear #19 (1976) book (first appearance of Howard the Duck) is a bad thing, but if you’re in the market to buy a good first appearance for $250 or $500 dollars, there are other books to seriously consider. Ask yourself this. Would Disney really want to jeopardize/replace the lure of Donald Duck with a wise cracking, cigar smoking duck? I highly doubt they want to throw Howard in our faces as the duck to really remember and constantly have questions from children to adults saying, “Is that Donald Duck?”. Um no. Disney would not want this. Why do you think there is no real talk about a cartoon or a movie pertaining to Howard? For this reason. Too close to Donald. Maybe someday Disney will bite the bullet and release a Howard cartoon or movie, but as for right now it’s not happening. Maybe a Howard the Duck comic book is a feeler to see what sort of attention it gets? Then maybe we’ll get some real news of something? This speculator doesn’t think we’ll see anything for some time. The Donald lure is way more important to Disney right now than destroying the very fabric of Disneyland or anything pertaining to Donald with people constantly mistaking Donald for Howard. Bycomparison, will we ever see a nasty mouse character created within the Marvel U that looks very similar to the Big Mouse with an attitude and possible cigar? The short answer is no. Howard will stay where he is right now and Disney is very content with that.

So there you have it. Lets recap shall we? Buy the Howard/Gwenpool variant this Wednesday, think about spending your $250-$500 elsewhere instead of his first appearance. Simple enough.

It’s just a matter of time before we see Nova appear in a movie or get his own thing going right? The Nova comics have always been entertaining, Nova (Vol 6) #1 will not disappoint.

A new Star Wars comic; Star Wars #11. An awesome Stuart Immonen cover here. We turned the comic horizontally so fans can really see it in its full glory. As always, any and all Star Wars comics; always a buy here at InvestComics.
A lot of creators from the comic industry contribute to Uncanny X-Men #600. Comic fans will want to thumb through this to see if their favorite creator contributed.
The new Vision (Vol 2) #1 looks very interesting. A definite pick up. A possible sleeper here. Take a look at that Ryan Sook variant as well, sweet.

451 Media Group seem to have a new hot book almost every week now. ExMortis #1 is sold out. Would you believe us if we told you that there will be a Santa Claus Year One type comic coming this week? How about if we told you that Grant Morrison will write it? Okay so this is Boom Studios’ premise to their new Klaus #1 comic. All set to a viking theme of course. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Others to check out; Hangman #1 (Dark Circle). Exodus Life After #1 (Oni Press). And just in time for Halloween, a story (sold out) from Space Goat Productions; Forty Coffins #1. Johnny Red #1 (Titans Comics) Garth Ennis writes. Another possible sleeper this week to watch out for; Niobe She Is Life #1 from Stranger Comics.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 8/12/15

 

Click on any RED link or comic cover in the article to buy/bid on the comic right now. A new page will open, so you will not lose your place here.

 

A potentially light week as far as the speculation side goes, plenty of great reading ahead. Although there is one speculation comic that will make up for the entire week this Wednesday…..

There will not be a bigger book this week. Batman #43 is where it’s at. Guarantee it. No way. Scott Synder and Greg Capullo introduce a new villain into Batman’s life this Wednesday, Mr. Bloom. We all know what happens when these two creative minds get together within these pages right? The villain is right there on the cover too. No cameo, little panel, a hand, no this dude is right there in plain sight. Although there are two other variants, the Mr. Bloom cover makes for an attractive collectors piece. He only graces the regular cover and not the others. A better resell with the character on the cover like that. Bottom line here, Mr. Bloom will be blooming in the aftermarket on Wednesday and thereafter. A seriously big book this week.

Another sold out Darwyn Cooke variant comic this week; Justice League Gods and Monsters #1.

Comic fans get a first this week. Adam.3 #1 will be the first for creator Scott Kolins. A first in his very own creator owned character starring in a new series. Thanks to Dark Horse this is happening. Comic fans win! Be sure to check it out and support Scott. He’s a cool dude.

Independent publisher Action Lab Entertainment making some noise this Wednesday. Archon Battle of the Dragon #1 and F1rst Hero Fight For Your Life #1 are both sold out. Speaking of sold out, but not sold out….YET, From Titan Comics, Doctor Who Event 2015 Four Doctors #1. Doctor Who fans will be all over this.

Moon Knight Checklist

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.

Marc Spector Moon Knight #51 (1993) First appearance of Harlan Silverbird.

Marc Spector Moon Knight #55 (1993) The first definitive Moon Knight artist. Legend Bill Sienkiewicz was amazing, but Stephen Platt took the character look to a whole new level. This is the Miller Dark Knight, the McFarlane Spidey, the Simonson Thor, etc. The first defining artist moment in Moon Knight history is right here. The second comes later. Too bad Stephen wasn’t enough at the time to save this series from its demise a short time later. The first published work of Stephen Platt.

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.

*****PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER BELOW Article*****

 

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!

 

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

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.

The covers were designed, penciled, and inked by veteran Iron Man artist and former Valiant editor-in-chief Bob Layton and colored by Mike Cavallaro. The Sharp Variant editions have extremely limited print runs, with only 400 copies of the color variants and 100 B&W sketch variants per issue. Turok, Magnus, and Solar were made available for sale exclusively at C2E2 in April at the SharpComics booth. Limited quanities of these issues are still available for purchase through Ebay ID: sharp comics. Individual copies of the Dr. Spektor #1 color  variants will be available for $19.95 each.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 4/16/14

Fifteen number one issues are featured in this week’s article. Some of course with an overload in the variant cover department, but hey no one is forcing anyone to buy them right?

Marvel Comics continues their version of the new 52 with the release of Hulk (2014 2nd Series) #1 and Ultimate Fantastic Four (2014 2nd Series) #1. Not a complete overhaul of their titles, but an abundance of number one issues. Which in reality is completely pointless, but that’s a debate for another time. The new Hulk series will do well, while the new Fantastic Four will border on mediocrity after its first few issues. The Hulk series is accompanied by six variants and FF only has two. See even Marvel knows the deal here. The GET comic in all 8 of these choices is the Mark Bagley Hulk variant. Mark is a stud, Hulk is a stud, CGC is a stud, and a signature from Mark would cap off your $25 variant investment.

[scrollGallery id=346]

Staying on topic with the variants covers, there is a prized variant to try to get your hands on. Superior Spider-Man (2012) #31 will have six variants, but it’s the Midtown Comics color and sketch variants that will fetch some aftermarket love. Be sure to check out InvestComics on Ebay for a chance to bid on those comics if you miss out. Oh yes one more thing. Superior Spider-Man #31 is sold out at the distributor.

Solar Man of the Atom (2014 Dynamite) #1 comes with twelve variants. Stuck in those variants someplace are two Rob Liefeld variants. Neat! Solar Man of the Atom gained huge popularity back in 1991 when the series was under the Valiant banner. These days, most of the characters are seeing resurgence. And if you missed the cool announcement coming out of the Sharp Comics camp, they are releasing limited edition variant connecting covers that include Turok, Solor, and Magnus from “Mr. Valiant” himself Bob Layton. Check out the full press release right HERE.

Batman Eternal (2014) #2 will introduce an old villain that has yet to be introduced in the New 52. Sinestro (2014) #1 will be a great read. His first appearance in Green Lantern #7 (1961) is always a nice book to keep in the collection.

A couple of comic covers this week pay tribute to yesteryear. Bad Ass (2014 Dynamite) #4 borrows from Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974). Godstorm Hercules Payne (2014) #1 pays homage to Action Comics #1 (1938). It’s nice to see a Zenescope Entertainment Ana_Alexanderbook that doesn’t involve any T&A on its variant cover.

IDW will release Transformers Windblade (2014) #1. Windblade first appeared this year in Transformers: Robots in Disguse #26 (2014). Did you know that the character Sheena is older than Superman? Sheena first appeared in the UK in 1937 and then in the states in 1938. Now in 2014, she appears again courtesy of Moonstone comics; Sheena (2014 Moonstone) #1.

A comic that may fly under the radar this week, but should be blipping on your screen is Porcelain (2014 Red 5) #1. Actress/Model Ana Alexander (Femme Fatales/Bones) is the creator/writer/star of this comic. It involves an assassin and it looks as though it’s done in a modern anime style. Be sure to check out this comic. Oh, in case you’re not too sure who Ana Alexander is, she’s pictured to the right.

Here are the rest of the number one issues to definitely check out this Wednesday. Mercenary Pig #1 from Aazurn Publishing is sold out at the distributor level. Got to love that title!  Translucid (2014) #1, Ghost Wolf (2014 Amigo) #1 (sold out), Time Lincoln Continental (2014) #1, Captain Action Cat (2014) #1, A Piggys Tale (2014) #1 (sold out),  and San Hannibal (2014) #1 (sold out).

 

See you soon. Invest wisely

Carpe Diem.

SharpComics Debuts Variant Comics at C2E2!

*From our friends at Sharp Comics*

SharpComics Debuts Variant Comics at C2E2!

SharpComics.com proudly announces the launch of their inaugural line of Sharp Variant covers. The launch features the classic Gold Key characters re-envisioned by Dynamite Entertainment. The covers were designed, penciled, and inked by noted comic book artist Bob Layton, with colors by longtime colorist Mike Cavallaro.

“We wanted to do something really special for the relaunch, so we suggested to Bob the concept of creating four interlocking covers. The covers can be viewed individually or as one continuous image. Bob loved the idea and ran with it! The end result is a “battle royal” of heroes vs robots and dinos”, said Brad Foster of SharpComics.com.

Goldkey-laytoncovers

The Sharp Variant editions feature an extremely limited print run, with only 400 color variants and 100 sketch variants per #1 issue. Turok, Magnus, and Solar will be made available for sale exclusively at C2E2 in April at the SharpComics booth, while Dr. Spektor will be available exclusively online in May.

“I had the privilege, during my stint as Senior Vice President and Editor-In-Chief of Valiant, to have a hand in forging the legacy of the Gold Key characters. Recently, when Dynamite asked me to contribute new cover material to their revival of those characters, I jumped at the chance. Then, the good folks at SharpComics came up with a challenging idea of interlocking variant covers for all four titles and asked me to create something special for their upcoming limited editions. I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge and did my best to do justice to their concept and to those Gold Key characters that I’ve grown to love over the decades”, said Bob Layton.

Goldkey-sketchlayton

Individual copies of the color variants will be available for $20 each. Sketch variants of each cover will be available for $50 each. Color sets of Turok, Magnus, and Solar will be available for $50 per set with 100 sets available. Those who purchase a set will be entered in a drawing for a free iPad mini which will be held on Sunday at the convention.

If that wasn’t enough to get your attention, as an added bonus for those attending C2E2 noted comic artist Bob Layton will be signing at the SharpComics.com booth on Sunday April 27th from 10-11AM for a donation to the Hero Initiative. Bob will also be drawing the winning ticket from the variant set drawing for the free iPad mini.

Be sure to visit SharpComics at booth #1317 at C2E2.

InvestComics Hot Pick Single: Buy Apocalypse First Appearance Now

X-Factor #5 & X-Factor #6 – First Appearance of Apocalypse

X-Factor #5X-Factor #6With the recent tweet from director Bryan Singer, it’s safe to assume that the next X-Men installment will feature the goliath villain named Apocalypse. So let’s see, we have rumors of Darkseid and Doomsday, and then we have Thanos making his mark in the Avengers movie. Do you see a pattern here? The bigger they are…..

The first appearance of Apocalypse falls into the silly “cameo and first full appearance” category. Why the cameo appearance of a character is always worth less than the FULL appearance is still a large mystery. It’s technically the absolute FIRST time we ever see the character right?? So THAT should be the book to get, but no. The cameo always plays the bridesmaid. Very strange……but this is really a conversation for another day.

The collectors market is exploding at the seams right now for the first appearance of Apocalypse. A recent Ebay CGC graded 9.8 X-Factor #6 (First Full Appearance) sold for $499 and an X-Factor #5 (Cameo Appearance) 9.8 graded sold for $99. An ungraded #6 has fetched upwards to $60 and an ungraded #5 has seen prices as high as $35.

So what to do now? The wise choice is to wait it out a bit. Wait for the market to cool off from the Bryan Singer tweet. The demand is in a reactionary state right now. The movie is not slated until 2016. So find a dealer or local convention that will give you a fair deal and buy these books.

If you’d like to max out your dollar on these comics when it’s time to sell, here’s how to do that:

Get your books graded and signed (CGC Signature Series). It’s imperative that you score a high grade or you’ll be breaking even or maybe you’ll make a “few bucks” instead of pulling in a large sum for your investment. InvestComics will help you out with the names of the creators below to snag at a local convention. Be sure to have a CGC Signature Series witness with you. Get all of these names on one book, grade a 9.8 or higher and you will have scored a huge payday the closer 2016 comes with the X-Men: Apocalypse movie.

X-Factor #5: Bob Layton, Jackson Guice, Joe Rubinstein, and Ron Frenz.

X-Factor #6: Louise Simonson, Jackson Guice, Bob McLeod, Ron Frenz, and Joe Rubinstein.

Invest Wisely.

MegaCon 2013 Autographs

[scrollGallery id=240]

If you are a regular InvestComics monthly newsletter subscriber you found out before everyone else about the very cool things in store for you the fan. Pictured above are the cool giveaways (and one special auction) that will be happening for the next few months. Included in the awesome bunch is the InvestComics One & Done Anthology signed right on the cover by some of the industry’s best. This Anthology which rose over $250 so far for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund will be auctioned off on Ebay with the proceeds going to the CBLDF. Hang tight for that auction (Lots of giveaway contest beforehand). The auction announcement will be splashed all over the InvestComics landscape, so you won’t miss it when it does happen. So who did exactly sign that cover you ask? How about Dan Parent, Chuck Dixon, Billy Tucci, Neal Adams, Alex Saviuk, Nelson Ortega, Terry Cronin, Ethan Van Sciver, Georges Jeanty, Adam Hughes, Rob Hunter, Jim Cheung, Gail Simone, Bob Layton, Whilce Portacio, Rick Osman, Frank Tieri, Bob McLeod, Jimmy Palimotti, Chris Claremont, Mark Bagley, Frank Cho, Amanda Conner, George Perez, and Paul Pelletier.

Yes lots to take in, but be sure to enter these contests to win.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=238]

Okay Hot Picks time. There are certainties in life. The character Thanos is one such case. So is the fact that last Sunday InvestComics informed you guys/gals that East of West #1 is a not to miss book. Yes, listen to the Broker when he tells you about the certainties in the collectors market. It’ll do your wallet some good. So getting back to Thanos now, if you ever doubted anything in the speculation market, this one would not be the one to doubt. If you don’t own or are thinking about owning Iron Man #55, stop thinking and do it. I cannot stress enough how much Thanos is going to make an impact on the movie side of things. The best comparison to make here is actually quite simple. Thanos will be the modern day Darth Vader. I have said this before and I will keep saying it. Thanos’ impact in the theaters will directly impact the back issue market. This said, this week Thanos Rising (2013) #1 will be altering the Marvel Universe as we know it. Yes that villain Thanos is going to bring it and you better be ready. This dude is a bad ass.

…..More certainties this week; Harbinger Wars (2013) #1. This comic will be a quick sell out, so you better grab one off the shelf before they disappear.

Superior Spider-Man (2012) #7 will see the return of Cardiac. The first appearance of Cardiac came in Amazing Spider-Man #342. Want to feel old? This comic was penciled by Erik Larsen 23 years ago!! 1990….23 years ago!! Wow.

DC Comics celebrates with a special issue of Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #19. “Mystery of the 900!” Umm, okay.

….More certainties this week; Regular Show #1. This book will be harder to find than any other in the aftermarket for cover price after Wednesday. Yep.

So with Venom (2011 Marvel) #33 we get the ol’ homage cover thingy going. Isn’t that nice? One little thing here though. Spawn #222 a few issues ago did the same exact thing. Two comics in such close proximity of each other paying homage to Todd McFarlane’s (paid himself homage; he’s proud of himself) Amazing Spider-Man #316. Click on the collage below to see a bigger image of all 3 covers side by side. Which one do you like best?

Venom

Okay so wrapping up. How about a bunch of number one and number zero issues to look out for? Miss Fury (2013 Dynamite) #1 (Look at that cover – holy assets Batman!), Robyn Hood vs Red Riding Hood (2013 Zenescope) #1, Steam Wars (2013 Antarctic Press) #0 (interesting concept here, Star Wars theme = sold out), Tales of Fear (2013 Aazurn) #1, Unleashed (2013 Zenescope) #0, Snow Angel (2013 Dark Horse) #0, Last of Us American Dreams (2013 Dark Horse) #1, andPolarity (2013 Boom) #1.

Besides the contest, there will be a few interviews going up. InvestComics already posted the (Mr. Incredible Hulk); Lou Ferrigno interview. Click right HERE to check that out. Also had some fun with the King of all Indie Terry Cronin. Click HERE to watch that. There is also a giveaway with Terry’s signature to coincide with that interview. Take a look at the latest InvestComics Hot Picks #262 for details on that right HERE. Also up right now is a Tom Mumme (The Accelerators & Comic Book Men)! Take a look HERE at that. Like the Walking Dead? How about an interview with Walking Dead zombie actor Michael Koske?! And also a chance to WIN his autograph! How about an interview with BOOM! Studios’ Eric Esquivel? Oh yes and win his signed comic Freelancers #3 (pictured below), how about and interview with Buck Rodgers himself Gil Gerard?! This particular interview also features Big City Comics CEO Jeff Kaufman too! The interview is by far the funniest, unpredictable, unscripted InvestComics interview to date. By a long shot folks…..it’s a must watch. Then there is the awesome Gail Simone interview too! How about a Jimmy Palimiotti interview as well? And Legend Pat Broderick? Yes we have him too.

A very special thanks goes out to Sebastian Piccione (Sunday Knight Comics) for hosting many of the interviews, he was a trooper, losing his voice and all. There were two discoveries that occurred at the show as well. 1; Dirk Grobb. He is a phenomenal artist. Fans need to know who this guy is and buy commissions from him if you see him at a show. Not only can he draw, but he’s a super cool dude too! 2; Brianna Floss. This girl did a couple of interviews for InvestComics and was great! She too is a super nice gal and will hopefully stay close to InvestComics for some more interviews because she’s an undiscovered talent! We don’t want to share! Thanks Bri!! Now go LIKE these two awesome people on Facebook right now! Rick Shea and Shaun Sorenson from Famous Faces and Funnies for having me tag along on your fun times around Orlando. Beating all of you guys at mini golf was one of the highlights of my golf career!

Well that’s about it for now. Stay with the website and Facebook page for all of the contest/interviews coming your way!

There will be more images coming out of the InvestComics Publication camp as well! Very awesome artwork coming from David Whalen’s “The Dawning” as well as cover art from Jay Katz’ “The Hunted”.
