Capes 1

IC 100 Club Pick – Capes #1 (2003) – Click to Buy Now

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!

This week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Capes #1 (Image Comics 2003). By now just about everyone knows what this comic holds. Especially Walking Dead fans. For those of you who don’t know, here it is. The Walking Dead #1 comic came out in October of 2003. Capes #1 came out one month prior. In the Capes #1 comic contained a 5 page preview of The Walking Dead #1. So in essences, the first Walking Dead to ever see print was Capes #1, not The Walking Dead #1. So what does this mean exactly? Well not much to the collectors (slab/graders) market because it’s not recognized as THE first appearance of this title. Why is that you ask? No idea. Sometimes the grading companies are very funny with what is what, but the truth and fact is that The Walking Dead comic first appeared in Cape #1, regardless if it was only 5 pages. It predates the first issue, end of story. It’s not an image, a teaser, a blurb, a mention, an ad, no it’s the actual first five pages of The Walking Dead before the number one issue came out. So with that, if you’re a true Walking Dead fan and think you may want a collectible, this is it. $100 and free shipping.

InvestComics already covered the comic we’re about to write about for speculators on the InvestComics Facebook page a while ago, but we’ll go over it here for those who missed any of it. Marvel releases Deadpool Mercs For Money #1 this Wednesday. In this new series fans will get look at the team made up of; Foolkiller, Stingray, Solo, Massacre, Terror, and Slapstick. ALL of these characters have the potential of blowing up. Deadpool can jump-start any one of these characters to a new life. Maybe their new journey starts here? Maybe not, but all of these characters’ first appearances are very affordable, so why wouldn’t a speculator take a chance here and buy some cool comics at affordable pricing? Great stories and potential hot commodities await you. Read comics……Invest wisely!

Let’s start with the team itself. The Mercs for Money all appeared together for the first time in Deadpool Vol 4 #1 (2015).

Foolkiller’s very first appearance was in Man-Thing #3 (1974). Although an awesome book, we look to the third Foolkiller character because that’s the one on this particular team. Kurt Gerhardt (Foolkiller 3) first appeared in Foolkiller #1 (1990). This Foolkiller 10 issue series was hot for a minute, but then no more. These days however, if he catches on, no telling what could happen. The same goes for all of these second rate comic characters.
The character Terror first appeared in the 1941, used very sparingly, but we’re going to fast forward a bit to 1988 to St. George #2 from Epic Comics (Marvel Comics imprint). Here we have the Terror character being used in today’s modern era. An obscure odd title you’d probably be hard pressed to find, but a book needed in your collection. The great Klaus Janson pencils this first appearance.
Stingray first appearance was in The Sub Mariner #19 (1969). Maybe an appearance in the Sub-Mariner movie if that ever gets off the ground.
Also debuting in a 19th issue was Solo. He first appeared in Web of Spider-Man #19 (1986). Marc Silvestri pencils this issue. This comic is also the debut of Humbug.
Massacre first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #655 (2011).
Finally, there is Marvel’s answer to the Joker. His name is Slapstick. His first appearance was in Slapstick #1 (1992). Imagine if Marvel ever made this third rate character into something that rivaled the Joker. Granted, nothing Marvel can ever do to get close to an equivalent Joker type character, but Disney is capable of doing whatever the hell they please, so never doubt them. So any fanboy reading this, relax. We’re not saying Marvel will ever rival the Joker type character, just a fantasy thought process. Speculators should get on this just in case though. Never know!

Detective Comics #49, Action Comics #49, Green Lantern #49, and Green Arrow #49. Not only do you get to choose which Neal Adams you like best, but they’re cover price too.

Walking Dead Checklist

By Topher Seal

So I guess I shouldn’t have sold my graded copy of The Walking Dead 1 (CGC 9.8) a few years ago. Currently there is no comic property seeing more gains than Kirkman’s epic Zombie adventure. You may think you know all the best Dead titles to collect but there are still some gems you might have overlooked and I recommend buying them all (along with some other important Image books!)

 

Click on the RED links to BUY/BID right from the article.

Walking Dead Weekly #1

This Image series reprints the original series on a weekly basis and has turned out to be just as hot as the regular series.  Issue #1 is the prize but they are all wise investments.

Click to Buy/Bid

Click to Buy/Bid

Current Value:  $20-$30

Ebay sales are up to $60.00 for issue number one having been observed!

 

Walking Dead Weekly #35

The Last Page of this comic was printed twice and limited to a print run of 900. It is believed that none made it out to the public but if any surface they are sure to be one of the rarest Walking Dead issues.

Value: Unknown (Yet?)

 

Image First Walking Dead #1

This 2010 reprint was made available to the public for only a dollar!  Now they are just as hard to find as all the others.

Value:  $14-$25

The Walking Dead #1 Variant

Click to Buy/Bid

In 2008 this variant reprint of issue #1 featured some added bonuses and has since become quite difficult to find in the back issue market.

Value: $25

 

The Walking Dead #19 (First Michonne)

Internet sales of this series have exploded.  The AMC series is an oblivious hit and with the appearance of Michonne in the season 2 finale things have gotten out of control.  Copies of this have seen huge price increases and are all but extinct on the back issue market.

Value:  $150-$200

 

The Walking Dead Weekly #19

Even the reprint of Michonne’s first appearance is insanely difficult to find!

Value:  $20-$30

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

The Walking Dead #27  (First Governor)

Michonne’s first appearance and the announcement that the Governor will be in season three have generated back issue buzz in this book as well.

Value: $100

 

The Walking Dead Weekly #27

See above.

Value:  $20-$30

BLUE CHIP BOOKS OF THE MONTH

Normally when Hollywood adapts a comic property the back issue market for anything related sees movement in a positive direction even if the movie doesn’t hit big.  In this case John Carter was so bad (gross wise) that the opposite has happened.

These issues along with many other John Carter Comics have either seen no price increases or losses. John Carter is a character of true worth and many of his appearances offer great art and writing making them truly valuable.

The Funnies #30 (First John Carter in Comics, 1939)

Dell Four Color #375 (1952)

Tarzan #’s 207-209 (John Carter of Mars)

John Carter of Mars (Marvel) #18 (First Frank Miller Marvel Art! and there is also a Mark Jeweler Variant of this book!)
