The Savage She-Hulk #17 (1981) – First appearance of Man-Elephant. Yep. At least this character has about five appearances in their 35 year history. Disney needs to use this dude.

The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.

Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.

Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.

The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.

Fantastic Four #265 (1984) – Jennifer joins the Fantastic Four team. John Byrne writes, pencils, inks, and does the cover art. Byrne in complete control here.

Doctor Strange #67 (1984) – First time in a Doctor Strange book. As an Avenger.

Avengers Annual #13 (1984) – Here’s a beauty to own. She-Hulk drawn by legend Steve Ditko. Ditko pencils, Byrne inks and a Byrne/Ditko cover.

Fantastic Four #275 (1985) – First solo cover since her own series. Amazing Byrne cover too.

Thor #353 (1985) – Legend Walt Simonson started his epic run 16 issues ago. Forever changing the Thor character. Okay not about Thor here, but about the legend Walt Simonson writing, drawing, inking She-Hulk in this book.

Marvel Graphic Novel #18 (1985) – John Byrne gets an entire book to draw and write on the She-Hulk. Not just any book, a Marvel graphic novel. That’s 72 oversized pages of awesome John Byrne She-Hulk.

Fantastic Four #286 (1986) – John Byrne writes with Chris Claremont. John draws with Butch Guice.

Fantastic Four #291 (1986) – This cover pays homage to Action Comics #1. She-Hulk takes the place of Superman and holds the car above her head. This John Byrne cover is on point.

Fantastic Four #293 (1986) – Jerry Ordway provides this great cover of the She-Hulk.

Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.

Marvel Comics Presents #18 (1989) – She-Hulk story written and drawn by John Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely! 

Sensational She-Hulk #2 (1989) – First appearance of Weezi Mason.

Marvel Age #76 (1989) – As a growing trend for quite a while, Marvel or John Byrne loved putting Jennifer in a bathing suit on his covers.

Sensational She-Hulk #39 (1992) – And another awesome cover from Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back.  A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.  

Sensational She-Hulk #41 (1992) – The first time creator John Byrne appears (as himself) in the She-Hulk series.

Marc Spector: Moon Knight #41 (1992) – The first time Jennifer appears in a Moon Knight comic.

Sensational She-Hulk #50 (1993) – The 50th anniversary issue. 48 pager. John Byrne loads the book up with guest appearances from a number of Marvel characters. This issue would be the last Byrne issue as Jennifer looks for a new creative team to take over her comic series. John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.

Sensational She-Hulk #52 (1993) – This issue features an Adam Hughes cover!

Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.

Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

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!

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 is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Walking Dead #65 – graded 9.9. Here is nothing more than a very high grade Walking Dead comic at a ridiculous price. By Walking Dead aftermarket standards that is. A 9.9 graded, mid-early Walking Dead comic for only $82.38?!? With FREE shipping! A beauty for Walking Dead collectors and comic collectors alike.

Lots of changes going on at DC these days. Changes like “Rebirth” and original numbering of titles.
Rebirth titles; Flash Rebirth #1, Aquaman Rebirth #1, and Wonder Woman Rebirth #1 (Greg Rucka writes). All three will bring their own reading enjoyment to each fan. Try not to be so judgmental with the FIRST issue. Get back to us when Captain America hits it’s 18th issue. Marvel knows marketing, don’t be so gullible. So pipe down, relax, breathe everyone, breathe.
Original numbering this week; Action Comics #957. Superman is back in Metropolis. Welcome back NEW Clark Kent! Detective Comics #934. The Eddy Barrows/Eber Ferreira cover rocks. As does the Rafael Albuquerque. Both spectacular.
Check out the highly random Wacky Raceland #1 from DC this week. Written by Ken Pontac and art by Leonardo Manco.

InvestComics loves the Deadpool And The Mercs For Money series. Check out Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #5 this week as the series looks for the Mercs and Deadpool to get paid. Wait for the fun and violence to ensue if it doesn’t happen. Please don’t pay them…….
Ron Garney does an incredible Daredevil #8 cover. Be sure to tell Ron he did a great job. As always though! Speaking of excellence, Dale Keown’s Vision #8 cover is a homage to the good ol’ days. “Wish we could turn back time…..” (yes, 21 Pilots.)
Civil War II tie-ins; Civil War II Amazing Spider-Man #1, and Civil War II Gods of War #1. About Gods of War, while many of the Hercules comics over the years have been great reads for the fans, the aftermarket has been extremely dull. Just don’t expect anything God-like on the speculation side. Always expect good storytelling with “Gods” when Hercules involved (ahem, Greg Pak). 
Mark Millar’s Empress was optioned for a movie. Empress #3 comes out Wednesday. Read it, see if you’ll want to see the movie!

Every single issue of Scout Comics’ Henchgirl has been featured here on InvestComics. Every single issue has sold out. This week; Henchgirl #8 arrives. And guess what…..sold out. Meet the hottest comic everyone knows about, but you! That’s unless you follow InvestComics. If you would have read our Hot Picks article back in October 2015, we informed readers of a short print run to pick up Henchgirl #1. That same comic is blowing up in the aftermarket (click the link, see for yourself!). A CGC  graded 9.6 sold for $175 two weeks ago. The 9.8 grades are going for MUCH higher. We’re awesome, we know.    
A sadistic-psychopath little boy that kills people. Sound like a good read for ya? Then get Norman #1 from Titan Comics. Written and drawn by Stan Silas. It’s sold out at the distributor, so you may want to grab a copy when you see it. Crazy Norm looks to be a hit right off of the pitchfork (bat). 
Also from Titan Comics comes Sherlock A Study in Pink #1. This is the first time Sherlock will be presented in Manga style in the US. We anticipate its arrival. Manga and Sherlock fans will eat this up as well.

Gotta love that new Gwenpool #2 cover. DC Comics gives fans a parody character of Deadpool a few weeks back; Red Tool. Now Marvel has this cover of Gwenpool on the cover resembling a certain DC character that welds a big hammer most of the time. Sometimes a baseball bat or whatever she can really get her hands on, but preferably that really BIG hammer is usually her “go-to”. Make of the cover what you will, but that sure does look like that DC girl. One more thing, the Gwenpool #2 Reilly Brown incentive cover is sold out.

Marvel Comics introduces yet another character on one of their covers. Seems like a trend now each week doesn’t it? Boy they market so well, catering to the comic collector. Silk #8 will feature Silk The Worthy (Silk as Thor). May never amount to anything, but the thing is, they seem to nail awesome looking characters! Create the character, the demand may come, a follow up on making the character a part of the actual Marvel Universe and there you have it, an introduction on a comic cover.

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

Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates of the new Black Panther series will probably make readers realize that his particular take on this character is unlike anything they’ve ever read before. Black Panther #2 comes out on Wednesday and will prove this point even more so. The Midnight Angels make an appearance to stir things up a bit. The Midnight Angels first appeared way back in 2010’s Doomwar #5, a comic that features lots of guest spots including Deadpool. And Black Panther, of course. Marvel’s new Apocalypse variant covers are killing it too these past couple of weeks. The Apocalypse Black Panther #2 variant is proof of this.
….And Dale Keown’s Guardians Of The Galaxy #8 Apocalypse cover is ridiculously wonderful.

Web Warriors #7 features a character we told you about a while back. We wrote about the possible breakout of this character someday. Well, maybe the time has come now. Spider-Punk makes his way back into the pages of a Spidey related book. Spider-Punk first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #10 (2015). You already knew this because you follow InvestComics and realize we are the best thing since sliced bread. Maybe sliced comics. No, no, don’t slice your comics, not good.

Marvel will introduce Grant Ward into the Marvel Universe this week. See that happen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #5.
Staying on topic of introducing characters in the Marvel Universe, take a look at All New All Different Avengers #9. This issue will introduce the All new Wasp! The regular and variant Alex Ross covers kick as*.
Venom Space Knight #7 may introduce a new foe. Or it features more depth on a newer character. Check this one out to reaffirm.
Another week, and more Star Wars comics to read! Darth Vader #20 begins a new story arc and begins a backup story with Triple-Zero and Beetee.

There are many DC covers paying homage to their own series this Wednesday. With many issues hitting that proverbial 52nd issue, DC will regurgitate the covers from it’s premiere issue in its own series with issue number 52. It all seems so contrived at this point with the New 52 in so many ways. Homage to a number one issue from 51 issues ago? Really?? Okay.

Learn more about the new character Harley Sinn introduced in Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #1 in this week’s Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #2.
Check out a major status quo change in Selina’s life coming up in Catwoman #52.
Fans could possibly witness the death of Superman this week. Again. Who cares? It’s all in good fun storytelling. Check out Action Comics #52 as Superman from pre-New 52 meets up with the current Superman. Only one may survive.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 7/29/15

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.

 

Star Wars #7 will be a special one shot story on Ben Kenobi. Take a look at Kenobi ala’ yesteryear. We get to witness a young Ben Kenobi and the bad as* he really is (assuming he’s a bad as*). This one shot story will be brought to us by the creative team of Simone Bianchi (artist) and writer Jason Aaron. Look for this Star Wars comic to sell out quick. If the aftermarket bust loose a bit on this, sell at a high point, do not wait for “more money”. Remember you paid only $4.99 for the comic. Greed not only kills, it leaves you with a lot of comic books you cannot move. Plenty of variants to choose from as well. A $100 John Cassaday sketch variant looks nice, but pricey.

IDW Publishing has a hit on their hands; Shrinking Man #1. This comic comes from the best selling author Richard Matheson. He’s written some big boy books with no pictures; I Am Legend, A Stir Of Echoes, What Dreams May Come, Somewhere In Time, The Last Man on Earth, Duel, and the list goes on. Both the regular and variant comics are sold out. Probably a good idea to grab one of these. Not only for the speculative aspect, but it’s going to be a great read too.

When the Sex Criminals book came out it was well received in the aftermarket. The announcement of a possible TV option made things out of control in a hurry. It is now possible to buy a number one 9.8 graded copy on Ebay at $99 or less (including variants). Then there is Sex Criminals #11 coming this Wednesday. There will be five variants accompanying the next five comic releases of Sex Criminals (Thank you to Larry’s Comics for the correction on this from the earlier posting of this article). All five will be poly-bagged because of the extreme mature sexual content on its covers. The covers will be “covered” when shipped in a polybag. Understood the story of this comic brings this type of outrageous shock value, but a severe gimmick here to lure fanboys to buy a comic they really don’t need. We’re quite sure the covers are probably fantastic artistic covers, but XXX covers? The controversy and interest these comics probably stir up will be the driving force behind any speculative aftermarket bump. Controversy sells, but at the end of the line, controversy simmers down and no one cares eventually. Larry does say that he feels the sketch cover will command your attention. Listen to Larry, he knows the deal.

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.

Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3 will feature a new costume for Deadpool and it looks very familiar. The cover alone here will garner interest from fans, so it’s a safe bet to pick this one up and enjoy it. A sell out will probably occur here.

Dive into Black Widow’s past; Black Widow #20. A semi-origin story on Natasha Romanoff. Should be an interesting read.

Hacktivist #1 Vol. 2 from Boom Studios is sold out. Regular cover and variants. Robin Son Of Batman #2 introduces Dragon’s Head. The Justice League Gods and Monsters DVD is awesome, get that right HERE. The Justice League Gods and Monsters Superman #1; Darwyn Cooke variant is sold out as is IDW’s Ghostbusters Get Real #2 EC variant. A bunch of DC Annuals hit this week. Deathstroke Annual #1 is a standout. Artist Tony Daniel will bring it as he always does on this title.

Secret Wars #1 Comicxposure Gabriele Dell Otto variant has been long since sold out. How about winning one from InvestComics? Thanks to Comicxposure this will happen! Stay tuned to the InvestComics website for details!

NOTE: This website is best viewed on Google Chrome.

These articles focus on comics that no one is talking about or speculating on anymore. 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 and worth some extra cash in the aftermarket, but isn’t the hunt fun too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red links provided in this article or comic cover, that’s if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Or again? 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

 

Quasar #1 (1989) Mark Gruewald writes. Origin of Quasar. Last 60 issues.

Pitt #1 (1993) Dale Keown pencils, cover art. 20 issues. This would be a fantastic movie one day if ever made.

Iceman #1 (1984) Four issue mini-series. J.M. DeMatteis writes, Alan Kupperburg pencils. Mike Zeck/John Beatty covers. Lots of creative firepower here.

Love and Rockets (1982) This critically acclaimed series is often forgotten. Fantagraphics Books. The Hernandez brothers brought a different way of comic book reading and vibe. They were way ahead of their time. The series was nominated for multiple awards throughout its 50 issue run. An ultra rare B&W cover (number one) is a hard get.

Grim Jack #1 (1984) The creative team of John Ostrander (writer) and Timothy Truman absolutely killed it here in the first 19 issues. John went on to write the rest of the series with various artist at the helm and continued to give comic book readers a great read month after month. The series lasted 80 issues.

Starriors (1984) This long forgotten four issue series was a fun read back in the day. Written by Louise Simonson, art by Michael Chen, and all covers by Bill Sienkiewicz. Probably just a matter of time before the Starriors make a comeback.

Elementals #1 (1984) Talk about a great series. This team was Comico’s version of the X-Men. The first 25 issues; written, penciled, and cover art (most) by Bill Willingham. The series ended after 29 issues. The Elementals first appeared in Justice Machine Annual #1 (1983) Texas Comics. Bill Reinhold penciled and Michael Golden provided the cover. The Elementals were fabulous.

A lot of number one issues coming out this week. Here are some of the DC books first;

Batman Beyond #1, this will be volume 5 number one. You know what that means? Five different times collectors have seen a number one issue pop up from Batman Beyond. That’s a lot. It kind of waters down the “premiere #1” issue deal a bit. That said, it doesn’t stop the high priced 1999 issue.  Anyways, Batman Beyond’s first appearance was in Batman Beyond #1 (1999). Bizarro #1, here’s an all ages book. Good to see DC is trying to get the little guys/gals back into comic books. Bizarro first appears in Superboy #68 (1958). And very funny variant here by Kyle Baker. Another all ages comic from DC; Bat-Mite #1. Count this reader in! And speculators, for you; Detective Comics #267 (1959). That’s the first appearance of Bat-Mite. One more thing, the variant is sold out. Midnighter #1 What will come of this series exactly? Who knows, looks cool though. Midnighter first appeared in Stormwatch #4 (1997).Written by Warren Ellis. Back in the 80’s the Omega Men team was awesome. Can they revisit that awesomeness with Omega Men #1? We will find out. Their first appearance is in Green Lantern #141 (1981). George Perez cover. Fantastic first appearance to have in your collection. Wonder Woman Annual #1 Check out what “old face” from the past shows back up.

Here is a rundown of some of the Marvel number one titles coming out on Wednesday.

With the new Marvel Universe on the horizon, we get more number one issues than we can handle. Or maybe we can handle them. Most would opt to just chill hitting the restart button, but we have Marvel and DC really shaking things up lately. All that said, Peter Parker will feel the wrath of the Secret Wars too. No one is safe. A safe bet is however, if there is a Spider-Man number one issue coming out, there will be a bazillion variant covers. That is so for the Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 comic coming out this Wednesday. Marvel isn’t shy about these variant covers. Ten at last count. Probably more than that as you read this article. The standouts as far as variants go are; Pasqual Ferry, Adi Granov, and J. Scott Campbell. Yes they are all nice, but these are our favorites. Too many variants that will sell for an absorbent amount of monies and then taper off. It’s the same formula here. So what about the actual comic? The only thing that makes this or any crazy amount of variants worth chasing is if there is a major introduction (their daughter?) within the pages, otherwise what you have here is a bunch of hyperbole with no substance to sustain the pricing during the immediate aftermarket wave. So what about this daughter Peter and Mary have? Is this a new take on their lives? Certainly looks that way. Having a child in any relationship changes things a whole lot! Maybe that will be the sticking point on keeping this comic relevant 10 years from now. And from the looks of it, the daughter may possess some of daddy’s DNA down a few issues later. Are we surprised here really though? Lets see where Dan Slott and Adam Kubert bring us.

The popularity of a talking tree has reached epic proportions. Groot #1 gets its own series. Who would have ever thought that Tales To Astonish #13 (1960) would become an untouchable book? InvestComics of course that’s who! A year and a half before the Guardians of the Galaxy movie hit, InvestComics informed speculators to buy this book. Check out the article right HERE. This was even before the characters were announced to appear! These days it’s so high on the depth chart right now it’s insane. Does the book have anymore wiggle room (uptick) to warrant a profit if you’re a buyer? Possibly yes if you can somehow get a real good buy on one. Here’s why. Groot will appear in the next Guardians movie and possibly beyond to the Infinity Wars movies. The Avengers will need all the help they can get when it comes to dealing with Thanos in those movies, so it’s probably a safe bet that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be teaming up with the Avengers. So Groot could possibly appear in another 3 movies before all is said and done. Maybe the love affair with audiences gets Groot a solo movie? Who knows? Either way, all this means more upside for Tales to Astonish #13.

Armor Wars #1; This story originally ran back in Iron Man #225 (1987). The biggest difference between then and now is the Iron Gwen variant this Wednesday. Iron Gwen? Really? Future Imperfect #1 was an original story back in 1992. Writer Peter David, art/ink and cover art from George Perez. Peter David writes the story again this Wednesday, but pencils by Greg Land this time. Hulk extraordinaire artist Dale Keown lends a variant cover. The original X-Tinction storyline dates back to Uncanny X-Men #270 (1990). Jim Lee, Chris Claremont, and Scott Williams were all over this. Marvel brings back the story 25 years later in X-Tinction Agenda #1 with lots of variants and a beautiful Mike Deodato Jr. variant. Skottie Young fans rejoice, Skottie writes and pencils this new series based on the little marvel universe. Giant Size Little Marvel #1 will be a guaranteed fun time.

The next big death issue has arrived speculators. G.I. Joe #214 will be providing the aftermarket with some serious buzz. Here is the thing, do not hold onto this comic too long or you will miss the top of the sell here. Be mindful of the market, time it correctly, if you don’t you will be left holding a comic with a decreased value and no demand. The hype will mostly likely be a short lived one. Snake Eyes is a big character in the G.I. Joe circles, not in popular culture. This isn’t a Captain America death where you see some dude you’ve never seen at your comic shop buying five copies. Although this is more of a G.I Joe/comic book speculator book, it still will command attention. Be prepared, and be alert. 1 year from now this will be long forgotten. The story won’t be because it’s a fantastic one, it’s the hype that surrounds it right now.

Learn more about Darkseid’s daughter in Justice League #41 as the first part of the Darkseid War goes full throttle. And the introduction(s) of new villains may arrive in here. Be on top of this comic speculators! Great David Finch Joker variant too. DC has many “epic” things going on these days. Well, as does the “other guys” too, but this week sees the epic storyline “TRUTH” roll out in Action Comics #41. And oh yes, is that Superman’s new costume (Levi’s) on the cover? We forgot about that already. That’s not a good sign. That Green Arrow #41 Bill Sienkiewicz Joker variant is as stellar as is the Green Lantern #41 Joker variant by Ben Oliver.

InvestComics says this almost every week, but a reminder for the new readers coming on board; buy any of the new Star Wars comics. An introduction of any character sends the aftermarket into a frenzy and you stand to make a quick buck. Besides, the Star Wars comics are delivering some good stories anyway. Star Wars #6, Darth Vader #6 and Princess Leia #4 are due out.

As InvestComics has warned about Star Wars and new characters popping up, watch for the Secret Wars to do the same possibly. And what’s with Secret Wars #3 Dr. Gwendge variant cover? Yes, yes the Gwen craze that’s right. Has that not subsided some? Yet another female dominating character in the Marvel Universe; Superior Iron Man #9 sees Superior Iron Woman taking it to Stark. This intro can blow up quickly if the character has substance. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #6; the introduction of Girl Squirrel and the return of Hippo. Hippo first appeared in the ultra cool Dark Reign Sinister Spider-Man #1 (2009).

This series is one to pick up and check out. Valiant has a hit on their hands with Dead Drop. The number one issue sold out, so expect good sales here for Dead Drop #2 as well.

Good to see that the Archie Comics crew is not superstitious at all. Archie #666 will be the last issue of its historic run and no fanfare of evil here, just “6” covers that all connect to make one “happy” image. The amazing talent of Dan Parent gets all of the cover credits too. That’s the right way to end the run. And Broken World #1 from Boom Studios looks like a good story, one to check out.

Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market, but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

Star Brand #1 (1986) Here’s a series that went no where fast. So fast in fact that issue number 19 was the last issue ; “number 19 in a 19 issue limited series.” Really?? Okay. This happened with almost all of the other titles as well when it came to Marvel’s New Universe imprint. Most  say “#32 of a 32 issue Limited Series.” on the top of the book. No lie, true story.

But even the creative firepower couldn’t save this series from its ultimate demise. John Romita Jr. does most of the art and a cover or two for about the first seven issues. Writer Roy Thomas on issue number seven, Keith Giffen art in issue number 9 with a Bob Wiacek cover, issue number ten features Mark Bagley Pencils, and then legend John Byrne takes over art and writing duties as of issue number eleven. And good luck finding that scarce last issue too.

Union Jack #1 (1998) Union Jack’s first solo series comic. Writer/artist and cover all by John Cassaday. When will a UK based character break out anyway? It will happen eventually (as InvestComics has said a while back), but here you have a great 3 part mini-series to read. One of the cool things about the Marvel Comics cover with issue number one is the wording “The Walking Dead”. That’s five years before the Kirkman book. Speaking of which…….

The Walking Dead #1 (1989) Are you aware there was a Walking Dead comic out 14 years prior to Kirkman’s Walking Dead? A four issue zombie horror comic. If you were, kudos to you. If not, now you’re in the know. The Walking Dead #1 from 1989 was put out by Aircel Comics and created by Jim Somerville. Issue number 3 features a Dale Keown cover! Sweet. Good luck finding any of these comics at your local shop.

Black Orchid (1988) Critically acclaimed 3 part series by artist Dave Mckean and writer Neil Gaiman.

Blade Runner (1982) With all of the talking going on regarding another Blade Runner movie, wouldn’t it be cool to get this comic in a 50 cent bin and have it signed/graded by Harrison Ford? A nice collectors item indeed. You’re welcome.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 1/14/15

This Wednesday, comic book collectors will probably witness record breaking history (or an extremely close second). Not so sure a record breaker one could be proud of, but it’s a first. This InvestComics Hot Picks contains the most questions ever posed in one article, so get ready for lots of answers too!

InvestComics_Star_Wars_2015_Marvel

Star Wars (2015 Marvel) #1 will have the most variant covers ever released with its debut. As a regular reader of InvestComics, most of you know we feel about variant covers. A little reminder; variant covers are an awesome addition to the hobby. You go on Wednesday to your local comic shop, see a cover (eye candy) you like and you buy it. No one is forcing you to buy it, but you have an option to purchase it if you’d like. Continuing; are variants really necessary? No they are not. That said, as mentioned, they not only give the customer an option, but it also gives the possibility of an investment. The investment part is where many speculators fail miserable in building their collection. Speculators need be reminded as InvestComics has spoken about time after time that most modern variants will not hold their value. There is however a way to make some very good cash flow on some of them. InvestComics readers know this by following this article each and every week for 9 years now. Buying random variants for $50 or $100 or more because they look pretty will probably have you in red. Getting in the black actually requires some thinking and knowledge when you’re buying modern comics, especially the variants. InvestComics has been here for you regarding these guidelines and we’re going to be here again when the record breaker hits this Wednesday.

Another thing that is said on InvestComics repeatedly is the ridiculousness of the variants. It really is not necessary to have so many variants for any comic book, but here’s the thing. Marvel Comics (Disney) and any other comic company are here to make money and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Money is what keeps the machines rolling. The artist, writers, inkers, colorist, printers, etc all need money. Most comic companies want to deliver the best product they can to their consumer. Another way of reaching a wide audience, creating hype and to make money is to give consumers variant covers. The comic companies are not making $500 on that Joe Quesada Star Wars variant, but they’ll make it on the back end by getting the store owners to order more of the regular variant covers, thus creating the more expensive variant the consumer wants so bad. So in the end, the house always wins and the speculator is left guessing what to gamble on. The question; should I pluck down $200 for a Star Wars #1 variant or shouldn’t I? Long term? Short answer, no way.

What about Star Wars #1 should the speculator know? Well let’s get the first and most important thing out of the way. Buy this comic no matter what because it’s going to be a fun story. It picks up after Star Wars Episode IV The New Hope. We’ve all been down this road before as far as a story picking up within this time frame, however it’s a new spin. Artist John Cassaday and writer Jason Aaron are bringing their A-game. Have you’ve seen the previews? Very impressive.

Now the “other stuff”. When you arrive to your local comic shop you’ll probably notice that one entire section of wall or space where the new comics are will be dedicated to Star Wars #1. The option to purchase one of the gazillion variant covers will be available to you. So many choices, what to do what to do the speculator will ask himself/herself. Well the answer lies within the old expression back on my Wall Street days; Buy low sell high. But in this case it’s going to be a bit of the opposite. Why you ask? Because if you’re going to want to make any sort of money here, a few hundred bucks, you’ll have to buy the more expensive variant, get it signed and graded (must be a 9.8 or higher. MUST) and flip it. You’ll have to flip the comic so fast that the comic grading company’s plastic will still be warm. Can this also be done with the “cheaper” variants? Yes, but there will be very little money there because you and every other speculator will be doing those comics. It’s the $200+ variants that will bring the most for your buck during the crazy short lived aftermarket. Supply will exceed demand.

Why is it that the aftermarket will be short lived? Well, first the supply and demand issue will be a huge factor. Also, the hype of this comic will be the driving force (no pun intended) behind the book. Once the dust clears and speculators realize that this particular Star Wars comic bears no redeeming value, it’s a dump fest. By redeeming value I mean that there is absolutely nothing holding on the INSIDE of the comic to keep its value. Is there a first appearance? Is there a major story plot line that will appear in the new films? Is there an error on a certain variant and recalls will occur? Is there a lawsuit pending for any reason on this comic? Did John Cassaday sneak in a DC character in the background someplace? None of these do not seem likely right? So ask yourself, where does the true value (besides a fantastic read) come in?

So where does the value lie then if any? As already stated, one of the values will be in the more expensive variants. The true value in this lies in the past though. 1977, 1980, and 1986 to be more precise. Here’s the thing. If judgment prevails for the speculator they will take most of that extra money they want to spend on a pretty variant and buy a Marvel Comics Illustrated: Empire Strikes Back (1980). This would be the first true appearance of Boba Fett. How about you get a Star Wars #42 (1980) too? The first appearance of Boba Fett in an actual Star Wars comic. Or even still, how about a Star Wars #68 (1982)? The origin of Boba Fett. The original Star Wars #1 (1977) from Marvel? And how about the RARE last issue (we like rare don’t we?) Star Wars #107 (1986). There are so many other Star Wars comics to invest in for long term as well, do your research, speculate. Here is the thing this speculator is leaning towards, If you feel so inclined to buy a Star Wars Variant, buy a Boba Fett one……

So why the mention of Boba Fett so much? Rumor has it that in-between the new Star Wars films will be a possible Boba Fett film. So why not cash in on this now? Yes the film would be 3 or 4 years out from now if it ever does happen, but buying the first appearance(s) of a character as popular as Boba Fett is always a good thing. Better than pouring money into a variant that will probably meet the same fate as the Death Star.

Buy what you like. One lesson InvestComics will always preach as well. If you like a certain variant and it cost $300, then buy it. If you are tired of seeing the variant covers, stop buying them. It’s your will and right to do so. If you think that variant will sustain its value, then it’s your right to think that too. This speculator will look at the other wall this Wednesday at the comic shop, you know the one. The one with all of the cool Bronze age back issues on it. Boba Fett will be pointing that gun at me daring me to buy that issue for $75. Yes Boba, lets dance for a while. The 2015 party will be short lived.

Doctor_Strange_InvestComicsFor weeks and months InvestComics has given the speculator a heads up about the entire Spider-Verse platform. A great story accompanied by a boatload of introductions and reintroductions. So many that it’s almost impossible to keep up with.Spider-Verse (2014) #2 will be another crazy issue with a ton of things going down inside of it. We cannot stress enough, buy the Spider-Verse comics, cross-overs and all, just like the Gwen book, another character will break-out. The Spider-Verse story is Dan Slott at his finest.

Amazing X-Men (2013) #15 will have Cyttorak as a focal point in part one of The Once And Future Juggernaut. With Dr. Strange being so hot these days, this comic gives us all a great excuse to buy a Doctor book! Check out Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #44 (1992) for the first appearance of Cyttorak. Although earlier mentions and a stone figure of Cyttorak exist in other comics, this is his first true appearance.

DC Comics will compete with Marvel this week and have their own huge number one debut with Mortal Combat X (2014 DC) #1. Just kidding of course. Seems DC is staying out of the way of Marvel this week. But they forge ahead nonetheless with the release of a Mortal Combat comic. History shows us that Mortal Mortal_Kombat_InvestComicsKombat has always been spelled with a letter K as opposed to a letter C in the word Kombat. A DC solicit error? What gives here? Anyway, DC gave the Mortal Kombat lure a crack once. That occurred in 2008. Now they are back at it again 7 years later. Why? It’s to hype the new game coming out and why not really? Everyone loves a good butt kicking comic don’t they? And just for the record, the first Mortal Kombat comic debuted in 1992 from Midway. It’s a hard get in NM condition. $60+ on Ebay.

Marvel continues their hyperbole with All New Ultimates (2014) #12. A comic that guarantees the “Marvel Comics to end all Marvel Comics”. Check it out! Awesome read here probably.

Secret+Wars_Spider_Man_WWE_SpiderMan_InvestComics….In issue number eight we learned that Miles is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Learn more in Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #9! Look at that Dale Keown cover to Avengers (2012 5th Series) #40. Thanos is awesome right? No reason to mention this comic other than the awesomeness of the cover.

Oh yes, maybe there actually is a reason to mention that cover. A perfect lead in to checking out the cover to WWE (2013 Papercutz) #11. Boy does that homage cover look familiar!

Thanos_Dale_Keown_InvestComicsSee you soon. May the force be with you.
