Arkham Asylum Checklist

The highly anticipated Gotham show will prominently feature Arkham Asylum.  This is a smart move by the show’s creators.  Arkham remains one of the most well known and popular locations from the comics.  These selections are the keys to Arkham.

Batman Shadow of the Bat 1

Why would I ever suggest one purchase this relic of the pollybagged era?  This time you want what’s in the bag.  Turns out DC decided to insert blueprints of Arkham along with some other goodies.  It’s a rather well done piece of art  that any true Batman fan should own.

Comic Broker Report – June 2014

 

 

Wormwood Gentlemen Corpse 1  ( Hundred Penny Press Edition )

index
This series has been on fire recently. Issues of the LO-FI magazines reprint material are scarce and sell for a premium. If you are looking forward to the animated series and collect the comics do not forget to track down this rare printing of issue 1.

Dreadstar 1 Marvel/Epic

dreadstar_1_0

Despite not featuring the first appearance of major characters from the series the first Marvel/Epic comic issue is starting to move.
Walking Dead 103 Variant

C120003
Clone has been picked up by Syfy and is easily one of the better Image titles out today. It should translate well to the small screen. Issue 1 has a variant but if you want the series first appearance this WD issue is the one to buy.
Note: There is a very limited DF remark variant for this issue.

1657451
Ghosted 9

index
Nailbiter is already a hot item on Ebay.  Issue 1 is selling for 10-15.  It’s damn hard to predict the next big thing as most modern titles fall off after a while and lose readership. Will Nailbiter defy the odds?  If it does pick up Ghosted 9 as it previews the new Image series.
Superman Confidential 1

sup confidential 1 first tony gallo

The man who first exposed Superman to Kryptonite  makes his debut in this excellent DC series. The Utopia Casino, which Tony owns was an Easter egg in the Man of Steel film. Only time will tell if Mr. Gallo gets cast as a villain in Zack Syder’s highly anticipated follow-up. This one is cheap and relatively easy to find. Buy and hold.
Chew 8 ( first Poyo )

me3q8g9J7va2Zd-QljbmN5g
This comic should be back on collector radars. With Chew confirmed for an animated treatment, fan fav Poyo looks to play a prominent role.
Swamp Thing 67

images
A new trailer for the Constatine TV series has debuted and people are excited. Issues of Swamp Thing 37 and Hellblazer 1 are starting to sell well. Look for this issue  to jump when collector realize that it previews Hellblazer 1 although I am not sure if Papa Midnite is in the preview.  If so this issue would then become his true first appearance.

Tales of the New Teen Titans 1

Tales_of_the_NTT_1

Scott Snyder has announced Cyborg will be in Superman/Batman and that means DC Comics Presents 26 will no longer be easy to find.  In all fairness it has been a collectible comic for some time.  But this issue can still be found in back issue bins all across America.  Buy it now and hold on tight because it gives readers the origin of Cyborg!

UPDATE: 

Nova8 ( 2008 )  First appearance of Knowhere

2770149-nova_8_dcp_0000

Some time ago I mentioned this little gem that not only features one hell of a cover but is also the first appearance of fan favorite Cosmo.  Well now it might be important for another reason.  Recent GOTG images allude to the possibility of the Celestial head Knowhere as a setting for Starlord and company.

Single Issue Hot Pick-Transmetropolitan 23

3415467-23

DC has made some big announcements this past weekend concerning their upcoming films.  Among these are Fables and 100 Bullets.  Early issues of 100 Bullets can be pricy but this forgotten gem from Warren Ellis should be a lot easier to track down.

Current Guide Price: 5.00 NM

( First Appearance of 100 Bullets )

Preacher 51 also has a preview of 100 Bullets which came out at the same time as this issue!

Comic Broker Report – March 2014 (Updated)

There is nothing I can say today that will take me away from watching Season one of True Detective in one sitting.  You should be doing the same, right after you read this though!

 

Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos 27 ( First Eric Koenig )

93346_20070512152904_large

So Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still has not sparked the interest as I had hoped it would.  Uninteresting characters ( not including Bill Paxton ) will do that but when Patton Oswalt was announced as reformed Nazi Shield Agent Eric Koenig, I started to smile.  The ranks of shield could start filling up with some wonderful characters from Marvel’s past but unless the clairvoyant is M.O.D.O.K. I sill won’t be pleased.

Young Men 24

ym24

Rumors of the Psychotic Captain America, William Burnside appearing as the villain in Captain America 3 have been a hot topic this week.  Early  reviews of The Winter Soldier have been overwhelmingly positive and Marvel has already started chirping about the third film in the franchise.  So who is William Burnside?

The general consensus is that he first appears here although he may have appeared earlier in  All Select 9 ( unconfirmed ).  Burnside is an interesting idea for a film antagonist.  He’s a man so obsessed with Steve Rogers he tries to become him!  It’s also possible he could appear in film as The Grand Director.

Captain America 231 ( First Burnside as The Grand Director )

first burnside as grand director cap 231

Captain America vol 5.  4, 7 ( 2006 )

1871_20050921180239_large2032489-04

These I like because of Brubaker, a man who will go down as the most influential Cap writer of the last 20 years.  Though Burnside is only shown via flashback in 7 they could be key down the road.  Considering the current importance of Issue 6, 6b,1 and the,14 reprint- I would buy now and hold.  Cap 153-155 are a good Bronze Age bet too!

Amazing Spider-Man 359, 360

736963

Collectors and buyers love them some ASM 361 and the 361 2nd print but Carnage’s roots can be traced back to issue 354.  These issues remain key to the development of the character despite their awful covers.  Also the cover to issue 361 is published first in issue 359.

Green Arrow ( new 52 ) 24     1 for 25 Variant Cover by Andrea Sorrentino

Arrow continues to surprise viewer with excellent episodes.   Bodyguard to Oliver Queen John Diggle is the best example of this.  He has become so popular that Jeff Lemire introduced him into the mainstream DCU in this issue:

arrow 24 first john diggle

but he actually appeared a little earlier in this 1:5 variant, out of continuity comic:

arrow 1 first john diggle

Note: There regular cover for this series is a photo cover.

Oni Color Special 2001

Ellen Page is going to star in Rucks’s Queen and Country.  I have mentioned Queen & Country 1 & the FCBD issue when the property was first optioned by Fox.  Don’t sleep on this issue though.  It features a very Early appearance of Tara Chace and one of her only appearances outside of Queen & Country.  The Powers appearances and cover don’t hurt either now that it too has been optioned by Sony for the Ps4.

40618_20060526101347_large

Action Comics 835 ( first in Continuity Livewire ),  Superman Adventures 5  

supe adv 5 first livewire1081527

Here’s some major speculation for you.  Much like Squirrel Girl, I love oddball first appearances of cool characters that could see increases in value down the road.  Livewire represents what I love most about comics and selling them for profit.  The key appearances of Livewire are cheap.  They are a safe bet and if you buy them you will probably want to hang on to them whether the market on them changes or not.

The Clone Wars 1 ( First Ahsoka Tano )

lStar Wars Clone Wars 1 first Tano

With Disney and Marvel taking over from Dark Horse a new era for Star Wars Begins.  Over the last 20 years there hasn’t been much to rave about in the way of new characters though.   Tano is one great exception.  Grab her first appearance now especially if your a fan of a universe experiencing a major shift in structure.

Note: There is a variant for this limited to 1000 copies.

UPDATE:  Are the Hunters the next big problem for Rick and company on AMC’s The Walking Dead?  Seeing how appearances of supporting characters are lighting up Ebay, issues 61-66 ( Fear the Hunters ) will be even harder to acquire if this rumor proves to be true.  61 and 63 are already key books thanks to the first appearance of Chew.

Nova 19 ( First Appearance Marcus Daniels, Blackout )

58321_20070515211825_large

Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to add villains!  I just hope Blackout doesn’t wear his original costume!

The Inhuman 11

32726_20060315174933_large

Korath the Pursuer is coming to the GOTG film.  Yay.

I’m not sure if this movie can handle any more characters but in this case the 35 cent price variant is the one to track down!
