Just a quick note regarding something from the speculative market that needs to be addressed. I saw this and had to share my thoughts because I see too many being swindled out of believing something that is simply a falsehood being driven by a market that needs to get with it a bit. This is one of the many reason the InvestComics website switched gears over the years and eventually arrived to a Trending brand. Comics can trend, but making stuff up to upsell is simply not a vehicle anyone should drive. Maybe I can make sense of it for you a bit. Maybe not. Maybe we can have an open discussion, like grown-ups on one of our social media pages. Weigh in and see what other collectors may think about this. A quick reminder, this is an opinion for MATURE readers, not fanboys with emotions that cannot read without formulating a solid foundation for an adult debate.
Please share this with your friends and others that have a rational sense of thinking. Be sure to let them know you have seen the light because of Trending Pop Culture if you agree.
Recently arrived from the Orlando MegaCon show and saw on a dealers table the Scooby Doo/Harley Quinn Team-Up comic with a yellow sticky that read ‘Rarest Harley Quinn appearance ever’. Priced at $30. This comic bears absolutely no significance at all in the grand scheme of collecting. It does not….at all. Zero. Let me break this down to you this way. Realize the ridiculousness of this sell…every single superhero or villain has a ‘rarest appearance’ leading up to their 352+ appearance (more on that in a moment). Every. Single. One. Thanos does. So does Deadpool. So does Starlord. So does Nightwing. And so on. Any hero or villain ever put to print has a comic that was the shortest print run during their tenure. It’s a FACT, no getting around this. Why are their RARE appearances not a ‘get’? Is it that the Scooby book sold 10k and the rarest Deadpool sold 12k? Seriously? You see how absurd this is? Please, utilize your monies and maximize it to the best of your capacity for your collection to be filled with tangible books. Wasteful spending on a 352nd appearance of a character as a ‘RARE’ appearance is not a good investment no matter how anyone wants to sell this. Yes, through calculation, counting Regular Quinn, Animated Quinn and Post Flashpoint Quinn, up until the 2015 release of the Scooby Doo Team-Up comic, she appeared in approximately 352 comics (More not counting some hard covers, TPB, reprints or various other continuities) to that 2015 appearance. That’s a whole lot of Quinn. So, what exactly is it with this comic (and countless others) that have so many in a tizzy? $30 well spent someplace else if you ask a true speculator. The Scooby Doo Team Up #12 is at a ‘Buy it Now’ price of $7.99 in some places on eBay. So many stuck on the high end with this comic, it’s not using your best judgement but following the madness of a website(s) or word of mouth.

Ant-Man hits this week with a few number one comics. Two that will trend are Ant-Man And The Wasp #1 from Mark Waid and Javier Garron and Ant-Man & The Wasp: Living Legends #1 from Ralph Macchio and Andrea Di Vito. Must be an Ant-Man movie coming out or something. Within the pages of Ant-Man & The Wasp: Living Legends #1 comes the reemergence of Living Eraser. A third-rate villain that first appeared back in 1963’s Tales To Astonish #49. Which also happens to be Giant-Man’s first appearance. The character quickly fell through the cracks to be revived in 1992 by John Byrne in Sensational She-Hulk #35. The ‘New’ Living Eraser! The crowd gasps! No, they don’t, but hey a great book coming from creative team Ralph Macchio and Andrea Di Vito? We’ll take that. And a new series from Mark Waid and Javier Garron? Yes, we’ll take that too. Thank you Marvel.
The Dazzler character has always been one of those characters to be on the cusp of something, but not quite sure what. Sort of like with Moon Knight, but more wonky. She’s appeared in countless comics throughout her storied career, but never managing to go next level. With the influx of the female heroes/villains making a major impact on the industry within the last decade or past few years, it’s no wonder we go back in time and grab Dazzler to try and make it work….once again. First appearance raw copies on eBay have sold between $40 – $80. An Uncanny X-Men #130 graded CGC 9.6 sold for $130 two months ago. Not that much demand in the open market there. But, that doesn’t mean writer Magdalene Visaggio and artist Laura Braga will not take Dazzler X Song #1 to a new era of interest on new comic book day. It’s a different market these days for the female character. Let the interest spark you, buy a copy, check it out.
Deadpool #1 will be the sixth volume with a number one issue attached to it. Too many restarts? Probably yes, but fans eat this stuff up. Making a new Deadpool series with the number ONE in the upper left-hand corner someplace is like printing money for Marvel. Add in super creative talents like Skottie Young, Scott Hepburn and Nic Klein, you have more of a reason to want this comic upon its release. Some of the many, many variants are already sold out. Remember, as its been said on here for years and years. The guts are the same (inside of the comic), don’t overpay for ONE page that’s different (cover).
Mark Waid is a busy guy these days. A new Doctor Strange series. Doctor Strange #1 Writer Mark Waid artist Jesus Saiz.
For a long time, It was written on this site about the title ‘Totally Awesome Hulk’ as a big downer for the book itself as for any potential first time reader for the comic. The comic was good, but the title was atrocious. Eventually Marvel saw the harm this approach was producing and finally that title went away. This Wednesday, a more ‘mature’ approach from Marvel; The Immortal Hulk #1 from writer Al Ewing and artist Joe Bennett. This is good. Very good. And the comic will hammer out some fantastic Hulk tales with this creative team on board. Looking forward to this.

Superstar writer Scott Snyder brings his stardom to another Justice League relaunch. Justice League #1 with writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Cheung. A few variants of course accompany this release, but the Jim Lee Batman cover is just….okay. Nothing really jumping out here.
Speaking of Batman, Deathstroke and Bats keep up the fight in Deathstroke #32. Part three Batman vs. Deathstroke.
Have you seen the new Nightwing #45 cover? The John Romita Jr. cover will draw the ire of some. Maybe. We’ll see if this trends because of the graphic nature of it. Maybe it’s nothing too. We’ll see.

About Betty’s Boob

Click on the RED links, Images, comic covers/items to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay

Trending Pop Culture Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.
An interesting comic from Boom Studios this Wednesday. Not only for it’s interesting title (a snicker will occur when seeing it), but because of its content. About Betty’s Boob is a realistic/comic book approach unto a particular female (Betty) who loses her left breast to cancer, but also loses her boyfriend, her job, her will, but things are lining up for Betty as the day is lining up to become the best day of her life according to writer Vero Cazot and artist Julie Rocheleau. This hard cover will be an interesting read indeed and should be beckoned as a film if someone wants to make a movie about awareness, perseverance and the will to overcome any obstacle thrown your way in life. Hopefully a comic book form of this hard cover reaches stores someday, but this Wednesday, buy the hardcover and read About Betty’s Boob.
For some reason Spawn #286 will be arriving to local comic shops with eight (at last count) variant covers. All covers are Todd McFarlane team-ups with other industry artist. Most of the covers are sold out already. Why the influx of variants here is a bit perplexing. Is there a major storyline happening here? Something…? Anything? Either way, some of these cool covers will be trending across your social media page shortly.
Brother Nash #1 (Titan Books) from Bridgit O’Connell is sold out.
Vagrant Queen #1 (Vault Comics); Magdalene Visaggio and Jason Smith. Sold out.
John Byrnes Stowaway To The Stars #1 Special Edition (IDW); All John Byrne stuff and a new John Byrne story!
Halo Collateral Damage #1 (Dark Horse); Alex Irvine and Dave Crosland. Sword Daughter #1 (Dark Horse); Brian Wood and Mark Chater. Danger Zone’s Aberrant #1; Rylend Grant and Zsomber Huszka.
Cellies #1 (Lion Forge Comics); Joe Flood and Dave Scheidt.

Marvel Premiere #15 (1974) The first appearance of Iron Fist. The holy grail of Iron Fist comics. Writer Roy Thomas, Pencils and cover Gil Kane, and inker Dick Giodano.

When Marvel/Netflix get it together, Iron Fist will be a household name. If for some reason it doesn’t work out with Netflix, look for Marvel to want to hit the big screen instead. The mere fact that the Iron Fist character is mentioned so much these days shows a tremendous amount of interest on Marvel’s (Disney’s) part. So with that, Marvel will start the Kung-Fu entertainment revolution once again either way. This comic also features the first appearances of Ferocia, Harold Meachum, Nuan, Wendell Rand, Heather Rand. Shu-Hu, and Yu-Ti.

The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu #1 (1974) First appearance of Lin Sun, Robert Diamond, and Abraham Brown.

The Immortal Iron Fist #1 (2007) Writers Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction take Iron Fist to another level here. Although the series lasted only 27 issues, it’s a very respectable series.

Iron Fist The Living Weapon (2014-2015) Here’s the absolute, hands down best Iron Fist series to date. Creator Kaare Andrews handles the writing, art, inks, colors and cover art for all twelve issues. Each cover outdoes the previous. Kaare is the game changer to Iron Fist as Todd was to Spidey, Miller to Daredevil, Platt to Moon Knight, etc. Buy this series, it will not disappoint. Issue #1; first appearances of Pei and Brenda Swanson. Issue #2; first Sparrow. Issue #4; first appearance of The One. Issue #6; first appearance of Fooh.

Master of Kung-Fu #1 (2015) It’s just a matter of time after Iron Fist is a hit on television or the big screen with the fans that we get more Kung-Fu characters. Here’s a bunch of intro’s in one book. Cy, Laughing Skull, Rand-K’ai, Razor Fist, Red Sai, and Typhus.

The Inhumans movie will be arriving in 2019. By then, Infinity War part II will have hit the screen. A question one may ask here is, will the Inhumans pick up where the Avengers movies cease? Short answer, probably yes. Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man (additions Wasp, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision) will fill in the new Avengers team roster after the current team is dismantled in Infinity War I & II. The Avengers can and will continue with an all new lineup one day, but until then, the Inhumans will probably take the mantle for a while. It makes total sense here. Some of the Avenger stars have become way too big for their roles, commanding more money and are also getting “older” as the series progresses. Remember when the phase just started? Chris Evans? Chris Hemsworth? Scarlett Johansson? Robert Downey Jr.? And the list goes on. No one really knew if any of this would work. It did. Now that “it did” and the success has and will run its course, ending with Infinity War II (2019), the only logical monetary thing to do is…..start over. Enter the Inhumans.

Since we all know that Marvel does not own the rights to the X-Men, this will be their workaround. Their version of the X-Men and come hell or high water, Marvel will make this work. Just to drive home a point that they don’t need the X-Men, they have the Inhumans.

It’s all going to start the same way it all began back in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. Get that name everyone recognizes and get it to work. So with the Inhumans, the character that needs to be front/center and to work is Black Bolt. He’s the leader of the Inhumans. The King of Attilan. Who will be chosen to lead the way to another successful 11 year (more or less) run? Black Bolt will be the next “Tony Stark” because of the lead in to introduce the next phase. The character (the team) will play an intricate role in setting the table for everyone to follow.

The Avengers Infinity War parts I & II will probably (most likely) end many of the Marvel on screen careers. Our favorite characters will be gone. Marvel will set a new precedence in offing characters at a ridiculous clip. The reality is, Robert, Chris, Scarlett, Jeremy and all the others who have been around these movies for years are going to move on eventually to other roles other than superheroes. What better way to add finality to an unprecedented run than sending our heroes to sacrifice themselves against the greatest threat the planet and universe has ever seen, Thanos. Do not kid yourselves, there will be many deaths in the Infinity War parts I & II. In actuality, there has to be. The stadium is over capacity. There has to be closure so that the new blood can come in. That new blood being the Inhumans.

So in 2019, it’s all going to come to a head. 11 years to arrive to the greatest battle of all time. The greatest battle in cinema since dad and son went at it with their Lightsabers. It’s going to take every character fans have seen throughout the years and mash them into two movies. The Avengers cannot and will not defeat Thanos alone. Not happening. The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Winter Solider, Loki, Spider-Man, Warlock and so many more will probably appear in both films. Most will not make it to the next phase.

The comic book speculator has four years to compile their Inhumans comics library. What InvestComics has given the speculative community throughout our ten years is the ability to buy low and….sell high. This checklist is just that. Some of these books are movers right now, but their value in four years time will be immensely different. Tremendous upside here. Yes the first appearance of the Inhumans might be a bit pricey now, but it will not be anywhere near as close to the price it is now when 2019 rolls around. Think big. Think X-Men #1 (1963) or Giant Size X-Men #1 (1975). Marvel Studios’ version of the X-Men will become the next big franchise, do not miss this boat. Inhumans will be huge.

Most of these books if not all of them are extremely affordable…..for now. As time beckons, as news breaks, as announcements are made, as villains are cast, as the Infinity War movie starts coming into light, the Inhumans will become more and more of a household name and you will be very late to the party if you put things on hold until then. Be sure to thank InvestComics for throwing this early party now when the time comes.

As always, there will be missed books within the checklist below. We’re Inhuman, Ha! See what we did there?! There are many books listed. All kinds of first appearances, key issues and cool books in general. We simply do not know what the Inhumans movie will bring, so we tried to cover as many bases as possible for the speculator. If you have a comic you’d like to add, please help the fellow speculators in listing it below in the comment section. AND PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER on this site.

Thor #148 (1968) The first of three consecutive, most desirable comics to own (besides the first appearance) if one is collecting key Black Bolt books. The origin of Black Bolt starts here (in a backup story). Still very affordable right now, but this will in fact change. This is also the first appearance of the Wrecker. An absolute non-factor because this comic will triple in value in a few years because of the Black Bolt origin, not because of the Wrecker. Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.

Thor #149 (1968) The continuation of Black Bolt’s origin. Must own.

Thor #150 (1968) The Inhumans origin. Must own.

Marvel Super-Heroes #15 (1968) First solo Medusa story. Black Bolt appearance.

The Secret Avengers #1 debuts this week with much fanfare. The Secret Avengers line up as we know right now consists of Moon Knight, Black Widow, The Irredeemable Ant-Man, Nova, War Machine, Valkyrie, Sharon Carter, Steve Rogers and Beast. So let’s have a little fun (as Bob Ross would say) and take a look at the debut of these characters in the Marvel universe. The big dog Steve captainamericacomics1_1_jackkirby_joesimon_941_250k.gifxmen1_1963_jackkirby_25k.gifRogers we all know debuted in Captain America Comics #1 in 1941. Legends Jack Kirby and Joe Simon were the ones responsible for delivering one of the most coveted comics of all time. This comic could be obtained in the 175K to 225k range. Look for this comic to explode once Captain America debuts on film. This comic is an absolute gem to own if you could afford one. The first look at Beast came in Uncanny X-Men #1 (1963). Once again Jack Kirby had his paws all over this one too. Get this comic at around 25K – 30K.This comic is a beautiful gem here as well, although the Captain America werewolfbynight32_1stmoonknight_1975_125.gifnova1_1976_johnbuscema_marvwolfman_firstnova_30.gifComics #1 issue being the better of the 2. Moon Knight, one of the most underrated Marvel characters in the Marvel Universe showed off his white cape for the first time in Werewolf by Night #32 (1975). Find this comic for $125 or less and you own the potential of a big first appearance of a character that could explode one day. There is no risk factor to purchasing this comic, it has been steadily increasing or lying flat at times year by year and will continue to do so and is a great comic to own at this price. Nova debuted in his self titled comic back in 1976 and with all of the hype, sales and madness going on in the Marvel Cosmic Universe these days and Nova being right in the thick of it, Nova #1 (John Buscema and Marv Wolfman) for $40?? It’s insane not to have this comic in your collection. The Irredeemable Ant-Man (2006) showed up in his self titled comic as well. This issue was brought to you by creators Robert Kirkman and Phil Hester. It can be found at your local comic shop for cover price or $5. So what theavengers83_1970_1stvalkyrie_roythomas_johnbuscema_100.gifironman281_1stwarmachine.gifare you waiting for? …Someone to read this and buy it before you?? Valkyrie broke onto the scene in 1970, debuting in The Avengers #83. The comic sells in the $85 – $100 range. Not too sure where or what will become of Valkyrie though. The Avengers #83 falls into the risk category. A second rate character that doesn’t show that much upside. On the other hand, War Machine has always showed some upside though. He seems not to be utilized in a way that Marvel fans are attracted to. Not quite sure what is up with that. War Machine has a great back story, is related to the Iron Man family books, kicks butt, and looks totally cool, so what’s the problem here? War Machine’s first appearance is in Iron Man #281 (1992) and prices for just $4. The problem here is an oblivious tos75_1966_1stsharoncarter_agent13_125.giftos52_1964_1stblackwidow_1000_1500.gifone. Back in 1992, Marvel was overprinting, just like mostly everyone else and thus making this issue a very accessible one, thus driving the price down. Simple case of supply over meeting demand. Black Widow is one of the only 2 women in Secret Avengers.You could roll back to a few weeks ago to Hot Picks 4-28-10 (Iron Man Hot Picks Special) and see some coverage of the Black Widow there. Tales of Suspense #52 (1964) comes in at the $1000-$1500 range. Here again, the Black Widow falls into the puzzlement of why is it that this character just doesn’t “hit”? A very pricey buy at $1000 and a better Black Widow buy would be the Amazing Spider-Man #86 (1970) for $200. Why you ask? Well go to the Hot Picks from 4-28-10 and find out! Sharon Carter is the last of our covered Secret Avengers. amsm_86_1970_johnromitasr_200.gifcaptainamerica606.gifTales of Suspense #75 (1966) comes in at about $125. Jackson “Butch” Guice will be penciling Captain America #606. He’s an awesome talent and fans can’t wait for this veteran to show his Guice like style on Cap. If you want to find the first time Butch ever drew Captain America, you’d have to go into the back issue bins and pull out The Avengers annual #12 from 1983! The annual sports a great cover from Al Milgrom. $4 should make you a proud owner of the first Guice Captain America. How about Dazzler coming out with her number one issue? Who would have thought this? With names like Byrne, Austin, Claremont and Romita Jr. comes The Uncanny X-Men #130 (1980), which happens to be Dazzler’s first appearance. Look at those skates! Anyway, this issue will set you back about $55. A price tag that goes deep into the wallet for a first appearance of a third rate character, but theavengersannual12_1983_jacksonbutchguice.gifuncannyxmen130.giflet’s face it folks, you’re really paying for the 4 creator names just mentioned. If Lindsey Lohan could get her act together, she will probably be in the starring role in the Dazzler movie if there is one ever made. This will drive the comic collector’s interest thus making this book climb a bit faster, but for now the names associated with this comic as well as a first appearance makes it a nice slow progressive moving issue. Now with the above just mentioned, go exactly ONE issue prior to Uncanny X-Men #129(1980) and that brings us to X-Men Origins: Emma Frost #1 coming out this week. The SAME creative team brings the first appearance of Emma Frost in issue 129. This time, look to spend a bit more here, around $65-75. Why more money you ask? It’s only Emma Frost. Well this issue carries the first appearance of Kitty Pryde as well, so essentially you’re getting a uncannyxmen129_1980_80_1stkittyandemma.gifdazzler1_2010.giftwofer. Unlike issue 130 though, you’ll get more bang for the buck with this issue. So if Pamela Anderson was 20 years younger and could act, maybe she would be Emma Frost in the feature film? Lindsey and Pamela in a team up movie, Dazzler & Emma, wow wouldn’t that be lovely??

Staying with the pairing idea here, don’t forget to check out the debut of 2 new creators in one book! DC’s Teen Titans #83 introduces Rex Ogle and Ted Naifeh. DC bringing in new blood, always great to see the talent “before” they get real famous!

The Female Hero on the Big Screen

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hollywood has been missing the boat on an entire genre.

Where are all the women at???

(Originally published on April 1, 2008)

Hollywood seems to have either a discrimination suit waiting for them or they simply think that females could not draw the bucks at the theaters. We’ll take the latter. The track record unfortunately speaks for itself. Catwoman was an absolute disaster, Elektra was very surface driven with no character development, Supergirl is a cult favorite that fell flat on its face and do we really need to say anything about BarbWire?

InvestComics is about to give everyone a heads up. Sit back, relax and read on…..
Most comic movies coming out today are entertaining and are commanding fanboy’s attention. While the majority of the movies are good, some of them just completely miss. Directors are learning as they go along what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to putting those comic book  panels on the screen. We as fans get to either suffer or enjoy the end products. More often than not (lately) the comic movies are getting better. So if the scripts, special effects and commitments are getting better, why no big budget female heroes in their own solo film? Why is it that we as fans do not get our favorite females heroes (or villains) in solo movies?
The lists of possible female heroes/villains are endless as are the males and teams. Not everyone can agree on the lady they’d like to see, but you do have the usual suspects; Wonder Woman, Power Girl and Supergirl (hmmm…..DC rules this department). While these would make great films today, it’s just a wee bit difficult to ask our collectors to get any of the first appearances because of the price tag and no buzz, then again this would be the perfect time to get these books! So if you can afford these comics, without a doubt get them! It’ll cost a small fortune, but a very healthy BUY.
So lets have some fun and look at some possible females to take command of the silver screen. We’ll list the first appearances and the price tag attached to them. While some might be a bit high, all we can say is that when Hollywood finally realizes that there is another gender out there that does exist (given the right script) and backing, the female hero will be HUGE. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
InvestComics has compiled a very short list of some of YOUR request and our picks. These are some of the ladies you need to be looking out for before Hollywood wises up a bit.
It took Hollywood 70 years to realize that comic books can make for huge profits on the big screen if done right. We hope it won’t take another 70 to realize you have some awesome female characters that need screen time too.
