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).

silk-1

Click to Buy Now!

IC 100 Club Pick: Silk #1 (2015) 9.8. Okay so you’re all wondering, Silk?! Really?? There are a few reason why we would grab this for $99. First off, it’s a crispy 9.8 grade. We all like that magic number don’t we? Second, It has FOUR signatures on it. Skottie Young, Stacey Lee, Robbie Thompson and Ian Herring. That in itself is worth the $99!! Lastly, we here at InvestComics love the character Silk and have said from day one that this character will be used in a big way someday. Might not be tomorrow, next week, next month, or anytime soon, but she will be a force one day. This $99 comic will tenfold with any positive news regarding Silk. Even if no news (for now), this is an amazing amazing buy for only $99!!! Buy it before WE do! 

DC’s “Big 3” (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman) get back together for a new series. Trinity #1 will be a road trip comic for the trio. In search of their maker, leads them through Gotham, Metropolis and elsewhere. Fans get the awesome Francis Manapul writing and penciling here. Should be a good book to check out.
Teen Titan member Cyborg debuts his new series this week. Cyborg #1 written by John Semper Jr. and art by Will Conrad.
Another Teen Titan member will get their own book this week; Raven. Raven #1 will be written by legend Marv Wolman. Marv also helped give birth to Raven and Cyborg (and New Teen Titans) into the comic book world in 1980’s DC Comics Presents #26 (George Perez art/Jim Starlin cover). InvestComics featured this comic in one of our first InvestComics magazine’s back in 2003/2004. Boy oh boy was it a lot cheaper back then. Even now, It’s still a fantastic book to own.

Image Comics’ Seven To Eternity #1 will turn some heads. New sci-fi/magic book from creators Rick Remender (writer) and Jerome Opena/Matt Hollingsworth (artist). This fantastic line-up will attract fans for sure. Non fans will get wind of this comic and flock to it as well.
IDW debuts their major crossover storyline; Revolutions. Check out several of their comics this week with the ‘Revolution’ header and follow along. Revolutions #1 will be written by fan favorite Cullen Bunn. Rom gets caught up in the crossover with a Rob Liefeld variant of all things. Yes that’s correct, Rom Revolution #1 has a Rob Liefeld variant! And it’s awesome too. While we’re talking about Rom and ‘Revolution’, Rom #3 (a Revolution crossover) will have a simple, but compelling variant from JK Woodward.
A new Valiant Entertainment limited series coming out this week is must read material. Britannia #1; written by Peter Milligan and art by Juan Jose Ryp.

Captain Canuck 2 InvestComics

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 7/22/15

Cyborg #1 – Look for this series to do very well. The Cyborg character is on the cusp of really breaking out. More possible movie announcements forthcoming and the added creative team here on this comic adds a positive direction for Cyborg.

Enormous #1 vol 2 – Last year the Enormous comic from 215 Ink was huge (no pun intended). This week 215 goes back to the well with a new number one. Expect some of the same drive toward the book as the regular and variant copies are sold out already.

Book Of Death Fall Of Bloodshot #1 – The Book Of Death story line is doing very well. Valiant Entertainment has a hit on their hands.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) – A must already have or own comic book. No collector should be without the first appearance of New Teen Titans.

Captain Canuck #2 – Chapter House Comics has the Captain Canuck character in demand. Thanks to good story telling and great marketing. Be sure to make our neighbors proud, buy this comic and enjoy it.

A new series from writer David Walker and artist Ivan Reis/Joe Prado coming this Wednesday; Cyborg #1. Look for this series to do very well. The Cyborg character is on the cusp of really breaking out. More possible movie announcements forthcoming and the added creative team here on this comic adds a positive direction for Cyborg. His first appearance was in DC Comics Presents #26 (1980), as was it the first appearance of the New Teen Titans. And that book at any price is still a great book to own these days.

Last year the Enormous comic from 215 Ink was huge (no pun intended). This week 215 goes back to the well with a new number one; Enormous #1 vol 2. Expect some of the same drive toward the book as the regular and variant copies are sold out already. The first volume was well crafted and the potential television show made for more attractiveness from the speculator. If the speculation doesn’t pan out this time, you most likely still have a great read in your hands, which is as equally important if not more so.

Valiant Entertainment is firing on all cylinders these days with their Book Of Death story line. Book Of Death Fall Of Bloodshot #1 focuses on the ultimate demise of Bloodshot. A few visits to some comic conventions this year, I have run into quite a few fans regarding Valiant Entertainment and their product around their booth. The common thread among all of the fans is content. The story telling is the driving force behind Valiant’s success these days. I agree. This is what makes comic books fun, not the 57 variants of a new number one comic, not a 3D cover, not a gimmick, a good story drives a comic. 100% of the time and Valiant is all over this. If you are not familiar with Valiant and what they are offering, you really should check them out, you’ll be hooked.

Weirdworld #2 informs readers that a “Crystal Warrior” appears. Does this character have anything to do with the Crystal Warrior from 1983? Marvel Age #1 (1983 first appearance) and then a month later in Crystal Warrior #1 (1983) Ha! Both with Walt Simonson covers too! Probably way off here, maybe not, but either way man those Crystal Warrior books were fun.

Justice League Gods and Monsters Batman #1, a prequel to the DC animated movie. Buy the awesome DVD right HERE. The Darwyn Cooke variant is sold out. Also sold out, but across the board on this one; Archie vs Sharknado #1. It’s Sharknado man, come on gotta love it!

Captain Canuck #2 from Chapter House Publishing. An all new threat for the Captain in a backup story. The Captain is making a comeback!

Stan Lee’s Chakra The Invincible #1 (Graphic India). This character was spawned from new comic book day. Now a new new series. Pick it up for the kids, great stuff here.

Star Lord and Kitty Pryde #1 (Marvel) and Wolf #1 (Image Comics) are books to get your read on. Wolf #1 has the speculation edge here though if any.

InvestComics Hot Picks 371:

New Release Comics on 5/13/15 (And back issues)

It’s a huge week for Thor fans and speculators alike. Thor #8 will reveal who has been wielding the Mjolnir. Who is she? Is the question every comic fans wants to know. Thor #8 promises to reveal a shocking return as well. Which will be more shocking, the female behind the mask or the return? There will be a huge guest line up to help with the dramatics here. Everyone looks on as the mask is slowly taken off. Awesome storytelling to come here, very exciting.

Here is the bigger question for speculators out there regarding this book. Once the reveal happens, then what? Do you run and get the first appearance of that particular character? Do you hold onto the comic for longevity monetary gains? The answer is……no on longevity, yes on short term. Yes on the first appearance, yes on short term. Yes on short if it’s a non-female draw character. If it’s a Jane Foster character, that’s not a short term investment. Journey into Mystery #84 (1962) is the second appearance of Thor and first Jane Foster. You simply do not short term on that book.

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

Essentially what the speculator needs to do here is sell while the aftermarket explodes. Do not hold onto this comic thinking she will appear in a movie, a television show or her time as Thor will even sustain. Yes she’s been a kick as* Thor, but the love fest will lose momentum eventually. It’s extremely rare over the last 40+ years since comic companies have tried its hand in changing a gender does it ever work for long term. Maybe this character will. Maybe Thor-ette will break the mold and become a huge success. I certainly do not foresee this happening. Been wrong before! No one is perfect. So InvestComics’ speculation here calls for quick and concise sells, do not hold, you may get stuck with books that wind up in the dollar boxes. Will still be a fantastic read regardless of any speculation.

Secret Wars #2 is gearing up to completely annihilate the entire Marvel Universe to make room for a new one. Check out Battleworld in issue number two and what it basically is. The origin of a new Marvel Universe is upon us with a ton of variants for this issue. It’s going to be a long ride with this one, so strap in. We’ll see when all of the dust settles months from now what we are left with. In the meantime, be alert of any new characters popping up during the transition process.

And speaking of new characters. Darth Vader #5 will show some new Vader foes. You know how InvestComics feels about the new Marvel Star Wars books. Buy them all. Just ONE of them, be it a variant (more money to make), maybe not a variant or a graded/signed (even more money to possibly make) could pay for a few Bronze Age issues you really need in your collection. Just ONE, that’s all it takes. The first Aphra appearance (we gave you a heads up) in Darth Vader #3 did just that for some. Its since cooled off, but many speculators cashed in on it. Buy Marvel Star Wars comics. Read them, they’re great.

A few Image Comics to check out this week. Mantle #1 is a straight up superhero comic. Remember those? And right, it has nothing to do with Mickey. The Phil Hester variant is a get. Also from Phil this week is Mythic #1. He writes this magic/mythic comic. InvestComics said this quite a while ago, but as the Dr. Strange movie draws closer and closer, we’ll see more and more of these magic books. Not a bad thing, but remember when The Walking Dead was at its height? Too many zombie books, so expect the same here. A $1.99 price point makes for happy comic book buyers. Injection #1; written by Warren Ellis will see sellouts. This interesting story will appeal to fans and its Warren Ellis so its a win. A Great Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire cover helps too. Staying on topic of a great writer, Cullen Bunn will give fans a horror genre book; Harrow County #1. Probably looking at a sellout here too. Two followups this week regarding number one issues that sold well; Savior #2 (written by Todd McFarlane) and Runlovekill #2. Good starts, now lets read to see where these series are headed. And finally from Image, mythology fans will enjoy Five Ghost Special #1.

Look for Boom Studios to have a hit on their hands with Lantern City #1. Story by Paul Jenkins and Matthew Daley. Four variants are available at last count.

Injustice Gods Among Us Year Four #1 variant is sold out. What does this mean exactly? It means that the variant is sold out.

Quick lesson here (free for InvestComics readers). One way to always tell if something is not working out is by the way things look….literally. When a set on a late show is constantly changed, it means producers are looking for a fresh look, change things up because it’s not working out too well. Getting new advertising dollars in or keeping the current guy in is the game. New look, give us money! After a while, that marketing ploy runs its course and eventually bye-bye. DC comics has changed course how many times now with Superman’s costume, Wonder Woman, etc. It shows the chaotic means to maximize the dollar for them. We all see by the reaction to most fans that change isn’t always a good thing. Not a bad thing either by any stretch, but do it too often and you lose your audience (money). Maybe a case in point with the new Angela Asgard’s Assassin #6  issue. Angela gets a new costume. Already? How many times will this happen before readers don’t care anymore? Readers don’t care now! Marvel might be, not saying this as fact, might be trying to renew interest in a character that they just brought over to their universe because fans are tired of Angela already and sales are down? Maybe. Either way, who cares really?! New costume for Angela, enjoy the read.

…..And DC continues their marketing plan with more Convergence comics. As said almost each week here why we think this is a big marketing campaign for DC. In short, many characters and groups are being brought back from obscurity. Why? Maybe to test the waters to see if they have the potential of monies to be made on new product. Pure speculation here. Let’s get to the Convergence titles…..

Starfire Starfire oh how bright you will shine. This is an exclusive poem from InvestComics. We hope DC will pay us royalties once they use it. Starfire will shine very bright when her solo comic arrives. Expect big things with storytelling and the aftermarket when it hits. This week in Convergence Green Arrow #2, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palimotti will write a Starfire backup with art by Emanuela Lupacchino. This will be the exact creative team that will work on the ongoing Starfire series next month. This comic will be the first Starfire from this team, not the number one issue next month. So when the number one issue is exploding in the aftermarket as it will (please credit InvestComics when acting as though you knew it would), Convergence Green Arrow #2 should go along for the ride right? So a few things here. Buy Convergence Green Arrow #2, buy DC Comics Presents #26 (1980 – First New Teen Titans and Starfire) and buy Starfire #1 next month. And more thing, just for the record, artist Emanuela Lupacchino is the real deal. She flat out brings it. Watch out for her!

Thor_8_InvestComics_variantConvergence Batman Shadow of the Bat #2 will bring back the original Wetworks team from the Wildstorm days. That was fun back then. Wetworks first appeared in WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams #2 (1992). And the rest of your Convergence titles; Convergence #6, Convergence Aquaman #2, Convergence Catwoman #2, Convergence Green Lantern Parallax #2, Convergence Justice League International #2, Convergence Suicide Squad #2, Convergence Superboy #2, Convergence Supergirl Matrix #2, Convergence Superman Man of Steel #2.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 2/11/15

(Click the RED and buy or bid on your comic now)

DC Comics have announced their plans to end the New 52 and begin Divergence. The epic Divergence storyline will center on Darkseid. InvestComics covered Darkseid with a tremendous checklist that needs to be seen right HERE. Do yourself a favor and go there now. We posted the link on our Facebook page already and there was a great response to an already great article from 2013! The links on the Darkseid checklist link directly back to Ebay so that you can get those appearances in Legion of Super-Heroes, Batman and a bunch more at very affordable prices. Still not heading over there? How about a Darkseid appearance in a Batman book that only occurred ONCE?! And it’s a modern book. A cheap one at that…….for now! Better get over there before those Bat books are gone off Ebay. Remember, click the link and save the time of searching. InvestComics has already done it for you!

There are a few takeaways that speculators need to be aware of with the DC news. With the Divergence announcement came the first mention of some new series’ to emerge. There are a few standouts and InvestComics has your back here……

Starfire will be HOT. Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti will bring Starfire to the next level. Aftermarket happiness here. How about you jump on a few of these first appearances of Starfire? How about the very very affordable Silver Age first appearance in Teen Titans #18 (1968). Although it’s not really the same Starfire we all know and love, but who cares?!  Starfire #1 from 1976; Starfire #1. How about DC Comics Presents #26 (1980)? This is the first New Teen Titans, Cyborg, Raven and Starfire. This comic should have been in you collection 7 years ago when InvestComics told you about it, but we’re just saying. New 52 first right here; Red Hood and the Outlaws #11 (2011). We cannot stress this enough, Starfire is an uptick. That’s it.

Prez #1 will debut and you need to click this and buy it: Prez #1 (1973).

The awesome Omega Men will debut with their book. Get a comic that has been suggested several times over the years on InvestComics; Green Lantern #141 (1981). Only a few copies exist right now on Ebay. You should click that link and make sure they don’t go bye bye. Also check out the awesome Omega Men #1 (1983) because it was a great series and that book will also garner some attention soon. Plenty of copies available as great prices, click away and buy it.

And finally, how about Bat-Mite #1? Yep! We’ll take it! His first appearance is right here in the Golden age Detective Comics #267 (1959).

Plenty of great reads and speculative comics to choose from this week. Be sure to click the RED links when we are talking about comics to pick up. The Red link will bounce you right over to Ebay so that the reader/speculator can either bid or buy it right there on the spot. So if your local comic shop is sold out of a particular book or didn’t order that InvestComics Hot Pick, now you can get it without a problem. Well presuming it’s not so super hot already and you get outbid! That’s why sometimes it’s best to hit the buy it now option and be done with it. Be sure to click on those links because some of the recommendations go fast. There only may be 4 or 5 copies available and they go fast! Last week we told you about New Zodiax #1 and the four copies that were available at that time at cover price were scoped up. They are now going for at least $10 a piece. Grant Morrison’s Nameless #1 was a sell out and a local comic shop has a $10 price tag with a sign “one per customer”. The link here directs you to many of the regular issues at cover price still. The variants? Well those are within the $10 range. The Wytches #4 Babs Tarr variant is still available, but you better get your hands on this one before too long.

Darth_Vader_1_InvestComicsDivinity_1_InvestComicsA little while ago the Marvel Star Wars craze hit. It hit hard too. So hard that Marvel has announced a second printing of one of the biggest selling comics in a long while. So what does this all mean in the real world. The comic book world that is. Well for one, the Star Wars story was great, so that was a good thing! In the speculative world? ……..I will go Latino here; “no bueno”. For those of you who failed Spanish class, skipped it or didn’t take it at all, “no bueno” means “no good”. Simply put here, there are too many copies of Star Wars #1 to ever hold it’s value. There is absolutely no redeeming value, other than a good read that will let that book hold its current worth. I already explained this a bit when the comic was about to be released. There are no first appearances, no movie tie-ins, no revelation, just a good read. This said, unless you get a special Star Wars #1 blank cover sketch that is a one of a kind, then you have……well a one of a kind! This will sustain its core value because of the one of a kind factor. Getting a 1:500 ratio comic means that you and a whole lot of other collectors have that book believe it or not. Considering how many regular copies there are in total, yes there are a lot out there, but more people still possess the same exact book as you do. Nothing different, same book. A Star Wars #1 sketch cover done by anyone is a one of a kind. Never the same anywhere. Can’t be, it’s actually impossible. Like a snow flake.

Now we arrive to the second phase of Marvel and their new Star Wars toy. Marvel will go with the biggest bad ass of all time. Darth Vader #1 will see a ridiculous amount of variant covers just like Star Wars #1 did. They same applies here as did/does the Star Wars issues. If you’re in the market to cash in, you better get your variants and flip them quick. Put those signed/graded copies on a fast track and throw them on Ebay. Do not fall in love with your signed/graded copy thinking that your kids will reep any benefits later on in life. This will simply not happen with this comic. One factor would help the cause and that is the same that would have applied to Star Wars #1 but doesn’t. A first appearance, a movie tie-in or a major revelation. Otherwise you have a Darth Vader #1 that is just a great story here. Nothing wrong with that either! Get the variants because you enjoy them. You enjoy that cover because it strikes a cord in you. Art is subjective, what you may like someone else may not and that too is okay. Buy what YOU like, but do not go in thinking you will have a major spec book on your hands 10 years from now. Not Happening. That all said, there are some amazingly sick covers. Click the Vader links and check them out!

InvestComics has been saying this for months and months, get Spider-Verse comics. This week it’s all over. The best Spider-Man story to come out in years will end in Amazing Spider-Man #14. How will it all end? Will there be even MORE introductions of new Spidey characters? A re-introduction? Who knows how it will end?! This was a fantastic series and we all hate to see it end, but we wait with baited breath to see how it will tie up. And check out some of the variants on the link. Sweet!

Every end has a beginning right? Spider-Woman #4 will be a Spider-Verse epilogue. Seems Spider-Woman came out of the Spider-Verse with some major changes. Best keep an eye out to see what is going on.

Divinity #1 looks like a hit for Valiant comics. Empty #1 form Image Comics looks every bit as full as its title suggests otherwise. Only 4 copies floating on Ebay right now. Click the link if you want it now. InvestComics has always supported Action Lab Entertainment with its fun reads and this week we support Priceless Pirate Princess #1. No copies available on Ebay right now. Harvester #1 from Legendary Comics looks like a good read.

….And just in time for Valentines Day; Harley Quinn Valentines Day Special #1. This comic is showing some decent signs of uptick on Ebay. Best get in there and take a look!

Remember to click the RED links to get right onto Ebay. InvestComics does the work for you!

 

Invest wisely. Read comics.

Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 8/27/14

1973237

Ultimate Spider-Man #29

Wool was optioned for a movie. That prompted issue number to be sold out and with that, Wool (2014 Cryptozoic) #2 has sold out now too. Stay close to this series for now. Remember, just because a comic book was optioned does not mean anything will ever materialize. Many times the comic market has a knee jerk reaction to the news and then many are stuck with comics that are impossible to sell. The best we do get though are great stories to read.

This week Superman (2011 3rd Series) #34 sees the introduction of the villain known as Machinist. Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. are giving the fans what they want, some new life breathe into DC’s flagship title. Is this in fact a first appearance though or just a New 52 first appearance? The Machinist first appeared in Wildstorm #1 (2006).  Same dude? Probably not.

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast continues to garner attention. The latest edition; Outcast (2014 Image) #3 comes out this week. Issue one and two sold out. Look for issue three to follow that trend.

Last week I recommended Teen Titans #16 (1982), It’s the first appearance of Captain Carrot. I was having some fun and wanted to set a trend to make the book hot. This week I will revisit the wacky, but first let me make a point…….quite a few InvestComics Hot Picks ago I explained that Marvel’s Spider-Verse saga was all a basic ploy to see which solo spider books they can possibly get off the ground and sell. Spider-Verse will bring every single Spider-Man character ever front and center. I compiled a huge Spider-Verse list of the many faces of Spider-Man. It’s a list you’d probably want to keep handy given all of the new Spider characters we’ll see popping up or getting their own comic. Like the new Spider-Woman title. How about a new Peter Porker comic? Wait Peter Porker? Yes. Check out Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #29; Spider-Ham has taken over. So expect A LOT more Spidey books and take overs to occur moving onward towards Spider-Verse, before, during and after. Now let’s get back to the wacky stuff. Peter Porker first appeared in Marvel Tails Starring Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 (1982). The Ultimate Spider-Ham first appeared in Ultimate FF #5 (2014). Awesome! Let Spider-Verse begin! And click right HERE to check out that InvestComics Spider-Verse Checklist, some great hidden gems in there.

[scrollGallery id=368]

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #5 will focus on the character Cyborg. I have recommended DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) countless times throughout the years. This comic of course features the first appearance of the New Teen Titans and several new characters. It’s a very obtainable book, not scarce at all. The main reason for the prices to be where they are at. Cyborg first appeared in DCP #26 and he’s also going to be in the Superman vs. Batman film. Will we also get a Teen Titans spin off from this film besides the Justice League? Most likely yes, so buckle in and get ready for DC Comics Presents to become an even hotter book way down the line somewhere. It’s going to be a way for Warner Bros. to attract that younger core audience. The book is an absolute bargain right now with average RAW prices on Ebay going in the $60 range. A 9.2 graded sold for $135 and a 7.5 sold for $81. So here’s what you do. Buy yourself a high grade raw copy. Get George Perez and Marv Wolfman to sign it (get a witness). Grade it, and you have yourself a wonderful resale right now, but more so in the future.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) First Appearance of The New Teen Titans.

Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #16 will give a semi-Superman history lesson told by Kamandi. This history class won’t be a bore! Various artists contribute to the different Supermen throughout the years. Should be a great nostalgic look and read.

The Fox channel has a hit on their hands with the show Bob’s Burgers. Now that hit series will become a comic book for the first time; Bobs Burgers (2014) #1. Look for the Midtown Comics Exclusive for only $10. Get some of the cast to sign it. Have it witnessed of course and grade it. It’ll be a unique book to resell to a Bob’s Burgers fan.

Face Value #1 from Autism at Face Value brings the topic of autism front and center. Heroes with autism. It’s an important awareness comic that everyone should check out. If you’d like to learn more about autism and donate go right HERE to the Autism Research Institution.

Other comics you definitely need to check out this week are Wayward (2014 Image) #1, Pop (2014 Dark Horse) #1, Jaegir (2014) #0, Hero Cats (2014 Action Lab) #1, Brainstorm (2014) #1, Shinobi Ninja Princess (2014) #1, and Sundowners (2014) #1.

Most Valuable DC COMICS 1935 – 1999

Most Valuable DC COMICS published each year

Key investment comics and historically important issues

Compiled and edited by comic book historian Terry Hoknes

These are the 3 most valuable DC comic books published in every year (Overstreet 2013 guide NM prices)

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

DCMostValuable1938

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things. 

First of all it does truly highlight the major key books of every year.  It also shows quickly which titles seems to pop up the most often and are truly the most expensive series to collect.  Whether its Detective Comics, Action Comics or Batman some titles are just more collected than others and bring higher $ amounts even to non-key issues in a run. 

Note its easy to see when a new hero age begins and a bunch of key books stand out with very high price runs during the gold and silver ages.  

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are for their age a better investment. This can always be seen with most books from the 1950’s which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

Any books from 1977 to the present are much more common as comic book shops became more present and offered back issues.  For many more current years its scarcer issues of long running titles that rank highest even though they are not key issues.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 9-21-11 DC Comics Relaunch Special Part 3

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 9-21-11 DC Relaunch Special Part 3….

As we head into week number 3 of the new DC universe, many have taken notice, where’s Marvel? On a personal note, I have been reading, collecting, selling, and now involved within the industry and never have I ever seen Marvel take such a backseat to DC. It’s been a long time coming for DC, now if they could just figure out their market place on the big screen, all will be very well.

DC is coming around third base and heading home shortly as they bang out week 3 of the biggest move in the company’s history. Let’s begin from high to low (Values) as we have in the previous 2 weeks.

Batman #1 – Just like his counterpart Superman, and, no more underwear! Finally DC realized that the major selling point on everything in “Marketing” is “Eye Appeal”. The underwear on most all of the heroes/villains are gone. The undie’s on the outside of the costumes made the characters seem extremely dated. That’s the rant on underwear, now on to the more important stuff. If you’ve lived under a rock for the past 73 years you know that Batman’s first appearance happened in Detective Comics #27 (1938). It also sold for over a million dollars within the past year. You know this already, right? InvestComics has no surprise here like as in “well maybe you didn’t know this”. The bottom line here, if you can afford to pick up a copy of this comic, be it low grade or high, buy it. DC Comics is nothing without Batman or Superman.

Catwoman #1 – Speaking of Batman, 2 years after the intro of Batman, the first appearance of one of the greatest villains ever and the Catwoman happens in Batman #1 (1940). Again, you under that rock still? This comic is listed at $350,000. Same applies as above, low or high, buy it. Not a bad pick up at all for the number one issue of Batman and the first appearance of the Joker. Sorry Cat, no disrespect.

Wonder Woman #1 – Here we have one of the most revamped, redone, overdone, overhyped, misunderstood characters in the DC Universe. Countless times we have been witness to a dramatic “new beginning” or “nothing is the same” or “new costume” (insert your own drama tagline here). Let’s not forget the failed television pilot. So the question has to be asked, what in the world will make a difference this time?? Maybe writer Brian Azzarello, and artist Cliff Chiang will bring something different to the table this time. Maybe. Check out Wonder Woman’s first appearance in All Star Comics #8 (1941). Coming in almost $250,000 less than Joker and Catwoman’s first at $108,000, it’s an oblivious statement here that Wonder Woman is a good teammate, and not meant to be in her own book.

Supergirl #1 – Here is another shining example of a character that has been redone so many times it’s comical. So many restarts over the years, so many changes, it’s ridiculous. It seems as though DC is trying to capture a market that does not want to be captured. Most female heroes are not that strong to carry their own books (as MANY male heroes as well!) If they do, it’s for a short while before sales wane and they start the nonsense of the restart or new direction. Supergirl, as said before does not escape the stigma. If you want to seek out the first appearance, look for the “test issue” Superman #123 (1958) for $400. Otherwise get the original/origin in Action Comics #252 (1959) $6000.

Captain Atom #1 – This new series should do well as long as JT Krul remains on writing duties. Look for Cap Atom’s first in Space Adventures #33 (1960). This $620 comic not only features cap’s 1st, but it’s drawn by legend Steve Ditko. If you want “post” Crisis get Captain Atom #1 (1987) for only $2.50.

DC Universe Presents #1 – Here we have DC’s “tester” comic. It’ll feature a different hero headlining every now and again. So what happens here is DC sits back and waits for the demand of a hero in his own title steaming from THIS comic. Dig. First up, Deadman! DC couldn’t figure out, should we give DM his own title? Heck we’ll let the fans decide! DM’s first is in Strange Adventures #205 (1967). This comic comes in at $205.

Red Hood & the Outlaws #1 – a trio to look for from this comic. Jason Todd as Red Hood first appeared in Batman #635 $10. Arsenal’s first in The New Titans #99 $4, and Starfire’s intro in DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) for $34. Yes that’s $34 for the first New Teen Titans. That price tag is far and away for Starfire’s First. Just saying….

Birds of Prey #1 – (see Wonder Woman #1, Catwoman #1, and Supergirl #1 above). BOP’s first in Black Canary/Oracle Birds of Prey #1 (1996) $12.

Blue Beetle #1 – Jamie Reyes as Blue Beetle in self titled Blue Beetle #1 (2006) $3.

Green Lantern Corps #1 and Legion of Super-Heroes #1 – See last week’s Hot Picks 9-14-11 by clicking here. These comics are covered here. Go ahead click here, and then come back. We’ll be here…..go, go….it’s okay.

Marvel Comics has a couple of comics to check out this week. Yes Marvel. Remember them?

The delayed Brilliant #1 will feature Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley teaming up for the first time. As said in a previous article of Hot Picks, pick this comic up before it hits the big screen. Oh yes, it’ll get picked up. InvestComics has called quite a few of these in the past. Kick Ass, Grant Caloff’s H2O……just saying.
Daredevil #4 gets a new writer/artist in Marcos Martin.

Independent Comics to check out. IDW’s Star Trek ongoing #1, and Ghostbusters ongoing #1. Dark Horse Presents #4, and Image Comics Near Death #1.

That’s it for this week. Next week the DC madness ends. Will DC sustain the onslaught and domination of the comic book market? We’ll see……

DC #1 Covers below.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 10-1-08 Back Issue Special

thor_126.jpg A slow week for new releases brings us to the back issue bins. This would be a perfect week to pick up a few of those back issues that should be in your collection. Recommendations that have been discussed on InvestComics like New Mutants # 98, Iron Man # 193 and Watchmen # 1, which all should already have a firm place in your collection. Here are a few comics that are still surprising affordable and should be looked for in the long boxes at your local comic shop. However, there is just one ‘pricey’ gem that will fly under the radar for just a little longer. You must grab this comic very soon before it becomes unattainable……..

 

 

 

 

Thor # 126. This comic is truly the number one issue of Thor. Issue number 125 was named Journey into Mystery with Thor.  Released in 1966, this comic comes in at a price tag of only $275. Yes ‘only’ $275. Think about where this comic will be once that epic Thor film hits the silver screen. Thor will become a household name and Thor # 126 will probably receive the $450 price tag or more. A great Marvel character that will mark his place on the solo screen as well as marking his place in the Avengers movie, Thor # 126 should be looked at as a monster investment. You may spend some money now, but it will pay dividends in the years to come. An extremely recommended buy here with almost a guarantee return on your investment. If you buy a VF/F copy of this comic, you might want to think about getting it slabbed (CGC). Once this comic is through the stratosphere, buyers will be looking for those graded 7.0 and above and pay nice bucks for it.

thor_337.jpgSticking with The God of Thunder, Thor # 337 is a great buy. The comic marks 2 first, first appearance of Beta Ray Bill and first Walt Simonson writing/pencil duties on the Thor title. When this comic came out in 1984 it was huge. It was mega big to the point that comic shops at the time were selling it at $25 a pop. That’s a big deal in 1983. Nowadays the comic can be bought on Ebay for a mere $10. Beta Ray Bill has been in and out of the Marvel Universe and is in fact a huge part of the Thor gallery. Will Ray be a part of the Epic Thor film? No one knows just yet, but why wait around? Great character, great legend, 2 first make a right. The best advice for anything Thor (back issue speaking) is buy, buy and buy. The back issue market for Thor is extremely underrated and you need to get on top of it before it starts taking off. Buy any first appearance all key issues of the original run. Definitely get the Walt Simonson run, pure reading pleasure and a great investment.

cap_286.jpgInvest in some old Captain America runs. Particularly issue numbers 100-125. Also look out for issues 100,111 and 113. These issues are all Steranko art and are a rare find in good shape. Captain America is going to be a huge movie as the same already discussed about Thor. Captain America‘s solo movie will do things to the movie market that will probably match that of the latest Batman film. The same that applied for the Thor comics should apply here. Buy any and all significant issues of Captain America now while the market is lukewarm.

 

 

rom_1.jpgWith the ‘big 2′ reaching back into the vault of characters to bring readers the new and improved versions of whomever, here are a few that have had some rumblings, but have yet to make ‘the’ comeback. ROM, remember him? Well maybe you don’t. Showing my age here! Way back in 1979 Marvel and Mattel (Toys) teamed up to release the ROM toy line in sequence with the comic book. 132 issues later ROM finally overloaded and succumbed to the preverbal cancel button. Marvel had a falling out with Mattel over the rights to ROM.Thus hampering the attempts to ever bringing him back, in the recent years though ROM has been teased about from Marvel and clamored after by a cult following. Marvel knowingly is in business to make money, well what company isn’t?? Marvel’s Cosmic Annihilation story line briefly had mentions and appearances by the Spaceknights. ROM is in fact a ‘Spaceknight’. So one day when you’re beating yourself up deciding to get  that Variant comic that cost $15, put your money on this 7 dollar 30 year old comic book that will probably bring you more enjoyment in the reading column as well as your wallet. The wallet?? Who knows?! Stranger things have happened!

dccomics_26.jpgIf DC ever decides they really want to join the fray of making a comic movie other that of a poorly done Superman or an awesome Batman, look no farther that Teen Titans. 1984’s Teen Titans provides a backdrop to the possible movie that DC has been speaking of for years. Buy the number one issue at $6. Better yet, buy the Teen Titans first appearance in DC Comics Presents # 26 for $20. Now that is a bargain of all bargains. This comic is highly undervalued right now and once DC/WB realizes the magnitude of a GOOD well written Teen Titans movie, DC Comics Presents # 26 will be hard to get a hold of.newtteentitans_1.jpg

 

Hollywood has their eye on comic books, old and new, no secret here folks.  With the release of a poorly done Speed Racer and a new Voltron movie coming out starring Spider-Man himself Tobey McGuire, any comic is fair game in this market. Why not look at Starriors # 1, Micronaunts # 1, Atari Force # 1, Arakand the list goes on. These comics are very affordable, but yet hard to find in a NM condition. Find these in your $1 bins and have fun.

See you next week.

Invest wisely.
