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!

Capes 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

As all of the Creator Spotlights on InvestComics, each and every one of the creators have their own uniqueness. Rob Liefeld stormed into the industry back in 1987 and took the industry by the proverbial ears, starred into its eyes and said “I’m taking over.” So he he did.

He was one of the busiest creators in the industry at one time. The man was churning out comics at a ridiculous rate. That was good for the fans because they couldn’t seem to get enough.

Check out some of Rob Liefeld’s key books in his vast career thus far. Everything from Deadpool to Jada Pinkett Smith. Yes Jada….

New Mutants #86 (1990) First interior art by Liefeld on this title. McFarlane/Liefeld cover once again. A Cable cameo.

New Mutants #87 (1990) The first appearance of Cable. Pencils by Liefeld, cover art with McFarlane. A classic cover that still gets paid respect in today’s cover art.

Marc Spector, Moon Knight #19 (1990) A solo Rob Liefeld Moon Knight cover with Spider-Man and the Punisher.

New Mutants #98 (1991) Well here it is. The Holy Grail. Only fours years into his professional career, Rob hits on a character that will forever change his career and the Marvel character landscape. The cover alone has been paid respect to so many times throughout the years. Rob Liefeld introduced the world to Deadpool and Marvel had a character for the ages. Not much can be said about this comic and character that hasn’t been said already, but Rob is officially a superstar now.

X-Force #1 (1991) This comic was ridiculously hot back in the early 90’s. Too many copies released prevented it from gaining any substantial aftermarket heat. Rob pencils/inks and cover art. Many collectors these days go after the bagged issue with the Deadpool trading card. Claiming it’s an early appearance of Deadpool. It’s a card. Seriously, it’s a card, not a comic appearance.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 9-10-08

new mutants 98.jpg

New Mutants # 98. Deadpool Debut.

 

 

 

  (…)

darktowertreachery_01_midnightvariant.jpgDarkTower: Treachery # 1Midnight Variant.

The DarkTower series continues with this special midnight variant release edition. It features a special ‘revolutionary reverse gatefold cover’. What does this mean exactly? We have NO idea, but it sounds important doesn’t it?! If you’re a DarkTower fan, this comic is a definite pick up for you, if you’re not, this comic is a definite pick up for you. This comic is going to fall under the category of rare/hard to find variant. Find this comic and hold onto it. And what exactly is behind that key hole??

 

secret_invasion_6.jpg

Secret Invasion # 6  Secret Invasion has had some nice highlights throughout the series. Marvel is delivering with the promise of shaking things up. As the series winds down though this issue’s last double page spread promises to send a chill down your spine. No that’s not InvestComics saying that, it’s Marvel silly! Yes the hype machine rolls on with Marvel. Make sure to email InvestComics to let us know if you ever got that cold sick feeling Marvel is talking about. Send Marvel the doctor bill if necessary.

 

 

 

thestand_1.jpg

The Stand # 1 Wow, Stephen King fans rejoice! DarkTowercontinues with a real cool variant and we also get an all new King epic to feast on. The original 1990 The Stand hardcover clocks in at an astounding 1153 pages! That is a whole lot of story to tell! Stephen King is a horror genius and Marvel knows this. This series will take off just like the others have no matter how many pages there are. 

 

 

 

 

deadpool_1_variant.jpg

Deadpool # 1  What more can be said about this character that has notnew mutants 98.jpg already been said by InvestComics. We can not stress enough that New Mutants # 98 NEEDS to be in your collection ASAP. You could have a potential pair here that will just burn up Ebay once Deadpool gets going. The Variant # 1 cover (pictured here) plus the first appearance together will make for a great duo that lots of fans will want. Liefeld put his indelible mark on Deadpool 17 years ago!! Now he pencils him again on this variant. My O’ my have times changed.

 

 

Others To Watch For……. 

bighero_1chrisclaremontpencilscovervariantcoverbydavidnakayama.jpg

Big Hero # 1  Anime, Number 1 issue, a Team of heroes written by Chris Clearmont, a Variant cover by David Nakayama and it’s from Marvel. Nuff’ said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

epilogue_1steveniles.jpg

Epilogue # 1  Horror fans get a new treat with this new series from Steve Niles. Kyle Hotz provides the pictures. Never pass up an opportunity to pick up new material from Steve Niles.

 

 

 

 

 

dragonprince_1ronmarz.jpg

Dragon Prince # 1  Much like Big Hero # 1 here but in a different context all together. Fantasy, martial arts, wizards, dragons, magic, Ron Marz writes and a Stjepan Sejic variant cover. Can all this add up to greatness or just lameness? Tough call here, probably going to be a great read so pick it up anyway. 

 

 

 

 

 

See you next week.

Deadpool – Some Key Issues

(Originally published on March 20th 2008)

New_Mutants_Vol_1_98The new Deadpool comic is arriving on 9-10-08 from Marvel. Check out this article that was originally written on March 20th 2008 . It gives a few Deadpool comics you should be searching for before Deadpool makes his huge return into the Marvel Universe. Yes, The Merc with the mouth, Deadpool, is coming back and he’s going to become one of the hottest Marvel characters in quite some time. Remember how hot Wolverine was at one time? You remember The Punisher? We’re talking that hot. This article contains some KEY issues in the Merc’s ‘short’ career that you should be getting before it’s too late.

Marvel is starting the push of a character that they think will be a huge part of the MU. The likes of which might seem very innocence at first, but is going to turn into a, shall we say, a Wolverine type overkill. Remember how the Punisher was in what seemed to be every other Issue in the MU in the 80’s? Remember the same for Wolverine in the 80’s and 90’s and even now? Well here’s the scoop Investors, the character Marvel is going to throw at you for the next few years to come is…….(drum roll please)…..Deadpool!

Yes Deadpool will be a household name in a couple of years, bank on it. Here’s a few reasons why.

The first reason, the most oblivious one is that the character is extremely appealing. Ever since Deadpool was introduced to the comic word in 1991 the comic world has embraced him. Mr. Wade Winston Wilson has that certain quality in a character that fans absolutely love. His abilities, Healing factor, Superhuman strength, his marksmanship, martial arts and many more. These powers sound a lot like a hairy, attitude, claw ripping mutant? Basically Deadpool has what Wolverine has but without claws. The second reason is the fact that Marvel is going to give Deadpool his own regular monthly series in August. The best news comes from Editor Aubrey Sitterson at the most recent Comic Con in L.A. He says “”It’s not a Deadpool series off to the side; It’s in the center of the Marvel Universe.” Let us explain what this really means.

The new X-men Origins Wolverine movie is going to feature many MU characters, but the one that Marvel is keeping an eye on is Deadpool. Marvel has already stated that they are possibly looking at a Deadpool spin off from the Wolverine movie. That being said, Marvel is going to push Wade to front and center in the next year or so in the Marvel Universe. Why you ask? He’s not the Hulk, Wolverine, Spiderman, Fantastic Four that’s why. People in the general public just don’t know Deadpool. Hell some comic fans don’t even know much of him! He’s not iconic enough like the characters mentioned and Marvel knows this. Deadpool will get lots of airplay in the year to come, be ready! Here’s a few Issues you need to pick up for a minimal amount of cash now and cash out big much later on.
