Aaron Lopresti’s Power Cubed #2 (Dark Horse) follows up on the first fantastic issue. Doesn’t that look like Marvel’s Devil Dinosaur on the cover though? Guess any red colored T-Rex will look like Devil dinosaur right? Also coming from Dark Horse this week is Steam Man #1. That comic caters to the steampunk fans.

DC continues the deep origin the Arkham Knight in Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #3.

The Justice League team have new powers and are all “God like”. The new powered Justice League team appears in this weeks Justice League #45.

For those interested, Teen Titans Hunt #1 will focus on the secret origin of the team.

Some of the best reading source material comes from DC’s imprint Vertigo. This week Gail Simone writes Clean Room #1 from Vertigo. There’s not much else to say here, but this will probably be a very good read.

The Invincible title will dare to reboot itself? Check out Invincible #124 as everything in the comic starts from the beginning? Only Robert Kirkman would do this to us. This is probably a fantastic jumping on point too.

An Inhuman stars in his own book this Wednesday. Karnak #1 written by the awesome Warren Ellis. A pick up for sure. Also, Karnak first appears in a book InvestComics has been touting for years now; Fantastic Four #45 (1965). We’re still a bull on this comic.

The number one issue parade continues onward for Marvel Comics this week. Astonishing Ant-Man #1 looks like a decent book, but haven’t we all seen the movie though? And what’s with all the characters on the Mark Brooks cover? Secret Wars Agents Of Atlas #1 will throw a bunch of characters together in hopes you at least like one of them and buy the book.

Speaking of the Inhumans. The new Uncanny Inhumans #1 comic is very iffy. It’s an all new line up; Human Torch? Beast? We’re not really feeling the additions here. The old team is where it’s at. A great creative lineup could sway many readers and collectors alike that are not grasping the initial vibe here. Charles Soule writes and Steve McNiven does the art.

New Star Wars comic; Darth Vader #11. More fantastic Star Wars material from Marvel.

Sunflower #1 from 451 Media Group is sold out. Dark Circle (Archie Comics) will release their latest ongoing this week; The Shield #1. A bunch of variants with this one, Andrew Robinson’s is our favorite.

Valiant Entertainment rolls on with their epic Book of Death event. This Wednesday readers will get treated to Book Of Death Fall of X-O Manowar #1. If you’re not reading Valiant comic books, you need to get on it. You’ll be hooked.

Black Bolt – Inhumans Checklist

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.

Fantastic Four #36 (1965) The first appearance of Medusa. Black Bolt’s main squeeze. Brought to us by the creative team of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Fantastic Four #44 (1965) The first appearance of Black Bolt’s bodyguard (cousin) Gorgon.

Fantastic Four #45 (1965) First appearance of Black Bolt (cameo) and the first appearance of the Inhumans team. Lee, Kirby and Sinnott. A must own comic if you are truly in the speculative market. This comic also serves as the first appearances of Triton and Karnak. Must own.

Fantastic Four #46 (1966) First full appearance of Black Bolt. His first cover as well. Same creative team as the previous issues and the same speculative rules apply as well. A must own here.

Fantastic Four #47 (1966) Every hero needs an adversary. A sibling at that. In this issue, Black Bolt’s insane brother makes his debut; Maximus. This comic also has the first mention and appearance of the land called Attilan.

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.

Incredible Hulk Special #1 (1968) Hulk vs the Inhumans. Classic Steranko cover.

Silver Surfer #18 (1970) Black Bolt and the Inhumans appear in the Silver Surfer series.

Amazing Adventures #9 (1971) The first solo Black Bolt/Inhumans comic.

Avengers #95 (1972) Another important comic because of the Marvel cinematic universe. It’s going to take more than just the Avengers team to defeat Thanos in Infinity Wars parts I and II. Will the Inhumans join in the fight along side the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy? Maybe. Maybe not, but this comic here is the first Avengers book the Inhumans appear in. Neal Adams art, Roy Thomas writes and John Buscema provides the cover. It’s also an origin story on Black Bolt and Maximus. Another must buy here.

Iron Man #57 (1973) Black Bolt/Inhumans first appear in an Iron Man book.

Marvel Team-Up #11 (1973) First appearance with Spider-Man. John Romita Sr. cover.

InvestComics Hot Picks 370:

New Release Comics on 5/6/15 (And back issues)

 

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

With the release of the awesome Marvel Secret Wars this week, be sure to check out the two variant covers we are giving away, thanks to Infinity & Beyond Comics in the UK. Check out these gorgeous Greg Land variants below. Click on them to be directed to the contest page. Be sure to follow the instructions in order to be eligible! Good luck!

Some time ago Sensational Wonder Woman #1 was a big hit for DC and it looks like the latest Wonder Woman offering from DC will be a hit as well. Wonder Woman 77 Special #1 is well on its way to selling out. The Phil Jimenez variant cover is already sold out.

Guardians Team-Up #5 has Rocket Raccoon teaming with the Pet Avengers. The Pet Avengers first appeared in Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #1 (2009).

Suicide Squad will make an appearance in Flash Season Zero #8. Suicide Squad these days are a hot item these days in case you haven’t heard.

Secret_Wars_1_McKone Spider_Gwen_4_InvestComicsLast week the Silk #3 variant sold out while an awesome Spider-Gwen #4 NYC variant sits readily available this week. Not at all saying this means much of anything but……. InvestComics has been a huge supporter of the Silk character since day one and will continue to do so. Silk is the better long term.

If you haven’t heard the rant here on InvestComics regarding the Marvel Star Wars comics, here it goes again. Buy any and all Star Wars comics that are released. Not only are you getting some good reading material(s), but as far as the speculation side goes, you could be in the money rather quickly if a first appearance occurs. Especially if the character is to appear in the movie(s). Kanan The Last Padawan #2 comes out this Wednesday. A great read and possible speculative value.

Regular readers here at InvestComics know how high we are on the Inhumans team. A little reminder. Buy anything Inhumans. Anything. They will be the biggest team on the planet earth a few years down the road. InvestComics will put all their eggs in a basket and bank on the Inhumans being as big if not bigger than the X-Men franchise. Yes 100% they are going to take mutant teams to another level. You heard it here first, the Inhumans will be tremendous, huge, big, large, and any other verbiage you can think of to describe something blowing up in popularity. We’re talking huge here. Let everyone know that InvestComics said so! Inhuman Annual #1 comes out this week. Does it have any real significance? Not really, but it’s a number one Inhumans comic and having these signed and graded will probably sell at a premium later on. Granted the Inhumans are a ways off, but getting started early (as InvestComics has said here many times) Inhuman_Annual_1_InvestComics Wonder_Woman_77_Special_1_InvestComicsis a good thing. Buy early and often. It’ll pay off down the line. Buy Fantastic Four #45 (first appearance of the Inhumans). Buy it now. Buy, buy, buy. Buy it.

As first mentioned in this article, Marvel’s Secret Wars #1 will be coming out this Wednesday and wow this is going to be an epic story line. If you read any of the breakdowns onto how readers got to this point, it can get a bit complicated and you’ll get lost easily. The best, simplest way to put this is that the Marvel Universe will merge with the Ultimate Universe. That’s it really. Lots of craziness is to ensue, but we ready! Secret Wars comes with a nutty amount of variants, but the two we are admiring the most are the giveaways! Then there is the Mike McKone variant(s). Those are way cool.

Afterlife With Archie #8 has a very interesting variant this week. It’s from the movie The Shining. The very famous scene in which Jack Nicholson bust a hole in a wooden door with an axe. Sticks his head in the hole and says “Heeere’s Johnny!” Very intense and funny at the same time and the Afterlife With Archie #8 variant cover captures that exact famous scene of him doing that.

Dead Drop #1 from Valiant definitely looks like a winner. Look for sell outs here.

Must check out number one issues this Wednesday – Arcadia #1, Drone Fatal Error #1, Bodie Troll Fuzzy Memories #1, The Agency #1, Big Bang Universe #1 and Minimum Wage #1.

InvestComics Hot Picks 365:

New Release Comics on 4/1/15 (And back issues)

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

 

An extremely busy week as far as speculation/reading goes. So many comics on tap coming out this Wednesday, but before we get to all of that we want to quickly touch on some other things.

If you haven’t done so already, you must join the hottest comic speculation Facebook page right now. The page is called InvestComics: Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society). Click the link to go directly there and request to join. One of our admins will approve you and the gates of speculation heaven will open up. So many great discussions going on there daily. It’s so informative and a chill environment. Please read the simple rules for the thread before proceeding though. It is not a thread for any fanboy to just post a random picture of a comic book within their collection. It’s a comic book speculation page. A big boy page. So go there now and join, get more informed, and most of all have fun.

InvestComics was at London Super Comic Con a couple of weeks ago. There were several pictures featured on the InvestComics Facebook page as well as our other social media outlets. Our London team lead by Giles Hargraves and Jamie Wright were superb. There are more pictures and some video forthcoming from the show. InvestComics is in the Netherlands this weekend covering the Dutch Comic Con. There are a few pictures posted on the InvestComics Facebook page and our other social media outlets right now. You should check them out. There are many pictures sitting in our bay that will be released from that show shortly. Our Netherlands corespondent Andres Sandoval is killing it right now. Be sure to follow all of the InvestComics social media to get the maximum impact of our Worldwide assault. Here are just a few of our networks of many to Like and follow;

The InvestComics Hot Picks have been a weekly speculation source for 10 years now. There are so many newcomers each and every week. It’s very important that you read the disclaimers. This goes for the veterans as well. Please read the disclaimers.

So what is the InvestComics Hot Picks article about? Many think this is a place to just post about the latest hot back issue comic that hit yesterday or a potential comic down the road because news came out last week about some possible movie. This weekly article covers the new comic releases that are coming out on Wednesday. That’s it. We give readers and speculators the heads up on potential books to either monetize on or just to enjoy a good read regarding new comic book day. There have been many emails, messages, random post saying “what about this book?!” or “Jay you should include this comic in your Hot Picks.” While we love and appreciate the input, this is not what this article is about. Never was in all of its ten years. We sometimes feature solo articles regarding the “breaking news” books. We also post on the InvestComics Facebook page and our other social media outlets. This is why it’s so important for speculators to follow and or like our pages too. InvestComics broke the Thor Hulkbuster comic on our Facebook page and also we gave the scoop on the Black Panther sister book, the Captain America Crossbones book, the Inhumans first appearance (more on this book in a bit), and the list goes on. Don’t miss out anymore, get over there! Again, as far as the InvestComics Hot Picks go, this is strictly about the new comics coming out and then touching on the older comics that relate to the new ones. The real money is within the older books we have always recommended. If you were privy enough to capitalize on all of the back issues we have recommended, you are sitting on a beautiful collection. As always said here regarding the new books; buy new to buy old.

A NEW WEEKLY article will be hitting this week, so look out for it. The new article is going to be fun and we cannot wait to share it with everyone. Look for it before new comic book day on Wednesday. We also want to thank everyone for making the other weekly new article; InvestComics Top 5 a hit too. The response has been a great one. Continue to look for that before Wednesday too.

So let’s get to this crazy busy week…..

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

Another year, another big event. DC comics is promising to change things drastically (again) with their Convergence event. The event starts up with Convergence #0 this week. The event claims to cover the lifespan of the entire DC Universe. Sounds like fun! Probably going to be some awesome reading ahead here. Probably also going to be the potential of some first appearances too which is always nice. What we do know is there will be completely new looks for many of the characters. How well received will these costumes be? So far 50/50. Will it equate to a speculation rally? Potentially yes, but maybe not for that long. It really depends on a couple of factors. If the new looks will make its way to the big screen and or sustain the duration of its title and not changing it again and again, which tends to happen more often than not. Thus killing the spec market on the new costume deal. The new Superman duds seem to be the one drawing a lot of flack. Oh well, DC doesn’t care what the fanboy wants, they never did and rightly so. They shouldn’t cater to the few. The many pay the bills, not the screaming fanboy. So for now that’s what DC wants and that’s what they will stick with….for now. As for Convergence, great potential on a big storyline here, the spec side is a wait and see. One thing we will give you a heads on is the Adam Hughes Convergence variant is sold out already. A good book to possibly get signed and graded quickly to flip. A pricey $50 variant (now $100 already) makes for making real money a bit harder though. Must score a high grade here to max your return.

New 52 Futures End #48 will have possible ties to Convergence, so pick this one up if you are all in on the Convergence deal.

Harley Quinn #16 will feature the debut of the Gang of Harley’s. What more do you need here really? A Harley comic with an introduction? Yes, massive potential here. Two $15 variants are sold out. The Left hand variant and the right hand variant. No really, those are the variants. Be sure to click the red link to buy/bid on Ebay right now if you want this one. There is also a very cool WonderCon variant as well. We told you to click the Darth Vader #3 link last week when the variant there was $9.99, did you do that? Should have right?

Fantastic_Four_45_InvestComics Inhumans_InvestComics (3)

The Inhumans is one of those teams that InvestComics has recommended over the years time and time again. With Uncanny Inhumans #0 coming out this week, it’s time to strongly reiterate the absolutely, positively one of the best investments sitting out there right now. That investment is Fantastic Four #45 (1965). Could care less how high the price is for this comic right now. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it. This comic still has upside and will not stop for many many years. Here’s why and please remember to credit InvestComics with this information okay? Thanks. Fox Studios will not give up the rights to the X-Men over to Marvel Studios. What is the big mouse to do right? Well this is very easy. Go with their other team that is the closest thing to the X-Men and franchise. In come the Inhumans. Why do you think the title of this comic is “Uncanny” Inhumans? The Inhumans movie is going to be huge. So huge that the Inhumans will have their own movie flow as does the X-Men. Their own storyline, their own individual universe if you will. The Inhumans team will turn the comic book “team” concept movie upside down on its head as did the Guardians of the Galaxy. But the Inhumans will rival the X-Men and that is going to be some serious cash flow for Marvel Studios and more importantly the comic book speculators. Buy the Inhumans. Buy the Inhumans. Buy a low grade Fantastic Four #45 if you do not have the cash to buy a high grade. The low grade is better than NOT having that book at all. It must be in your collection. So go to your local comic shop and see what they have. Click on the red Fantastic Four #45 link to shop on Ebay. We cannot stress enough how much up side this book has. As for the Uncanny Inhumans #0 comic this week, it will focus on the leader of the group, Black bolt. A good pick up here, but a long wait time to make any real monies. The $50 Siya Oum is already sold out. This might be the better buy with a high grade and signature(s) on it. Fantastic Four #45 is where it’s really at.

Marvel continues their onslaught of new Star Wars books this week with Kanan Last Padawan #1. It seems with Marvel’s Star Wars these days, everything is hot. Will this comic be hot? Probably, maybe. Will it last? Maybe. Does it have big buy potential? Not really, but that can change rather quickly in the world of comics. All this character needs is an announcement of appearing in one of the new Star Wars movies and you have yourself a frenzy. That hasn’t happened. It may never happen. So what happens then? Well you then have an animated character making his solo comic debut. Actually an earlier appearance in print is in Star Wars Rebels magazine #2 from last month, but who’s paying attention to that? Ha! Click that red link if you want that magazine. But getting back, animated characters never equate to big dollar signs in comic books unless your name is Harley Quinn. A breakout will happen occasionally, but it’s a rarity for animation characters to bring a big return for speculators. Buy the Kanan Last Padawan #1 comic this Wednesday for a good read and a $4.99 risk. Maybe something will occur. Maybe the comic will get hot right out of the gate and you have yourself a hot book to resell. Anything is possible. The TV show variant ($10) and the Killian Plunkett variant ($15) are both sold out. So if you think the potential is there, buy them. Remember one thing (as said here quite often), sold out comics DO NOT mean there is money to be made. It’s just a heads up for the speculator to make a judgment call.

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

A couple of weeks ago InvestComics gave fans a running start on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 comic. The “death” of a character was the calling there. Turns out it was Donatello and it looks as though he will make it to issue number 45 after all. This week we present the storyline that will give readers the demise of long time character Snakeyes from G.I. Joe. Look for G.I. Joe #212 for the beginning of the end for Snake Eyes. The problem with death in comic books is that there is no death in comic books. No one stays dead. This storyline however will be a hot one. Lots of eyeballs will be on it. Lots of speculators on it. Do not look for long term here. This is going to be a great story, but Snake Eyes will come back eventually. Maybe as someone else, but the character will be back in some form. IDW will bring it as they always do, so definitely check out this storyline. The Larry Hama and Anthony Fuso variants are both sold out. If you’re in the market for these books, better it now if you want them at a lower price. There are currently no G.I Joe #212 comics on Ebay. Many speculators are holding of to see where the marketplace goes. Otherwise you’ll have to wait a while for the prices to come back down to a normal level after the frenzy dies down to purchase a copy.

GI_Joe_InvestComics Harley_Quinn_InvestComics (1) Spider_Gwen_3_InvestComics

Long time friends of InvestComics; Creature Entertainment have a hit on their hands. Check out Ravenous #1 this Wednesday. If you ever have the chance to get on over to the Creature Entertainment booth at a convention, do yourself a favor and do so. John Ulloa and Jose Navarro are great guys. Their product is superb too. Killer artist Jose Varese is part of the team and is the penciler on Ravenous #1. Support this Indie company Creature Entertainment and buy this already sold out comic. The variant is a beauty too.

Wonder Woman continues her torrid pace thanks to David and Meredith Finch. Wonder Woman #40 features one of those cool movie variants. InvestComics has touched on a few of the movie variants to have some fun with and either monetize on or to have a one of a kind book for your collection. Wonder Woman #40 features the 300 movie variant. Get actor Gerard Butler and artist for the cover Bill Sienkiewicz to sign this comic. Get it witnessed/graded and you have yourself an amazing book. Again, we don’t want to get fan mail or fanboys screaming “How do I get actor Gerard Butler to sign my comic??? He’s never at a comic convention!!!” Stop it. Really, stop it. This is all in F U N. The odds of running into ANY of the people we suggested to sign your movie comic variants in the last few weeks is extremely slim. You will probably never get Prince, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Tommy Lee Jones, etc, but the potential of ever getting an opportunity to get a signed/graded comic book movie variant by Prince is just flat out fun. Please calm down with the actual thinking that InvestComics is telling fans to actually find these celebrities and get this done. It’s merely an outside the box way of thinking to get a unique book in your collection or to sell. Oh and by the way, Wonder Woman #40 David Finch variant is sold out.

Avengers Ultron Forever #1 will fast forward 500 years into the future. Ultron has won and all humans are now extinct. Dr. Strange brings the Avengers from the past to try and defeat Ultron. Fun times! Superheroes fighting villains, we all love that right? The three part series is brought to you by the awesome artistry of Alan Davis. Two variants are extinct already; the Black Widow and the Captain America. Expect sell outs across the board here.

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

When talking about the return of comic book characters earlier and how they never really die, they return in some way or another eventually. Wolverines #13 will be just that. Wolverine is “dead” but Deadpool will bring him back in his own way. Yes there will be a Wolverpool? Deadvernie? However you want to call it, but this will be the debut of something. That something being Deadpool as Wolverine. A hot book as a novelty, nothing substantial to come of this later on.

And speaking on debuts, there might be one in Iron Fist Living Weapon #11 this week. Thumb through it to see what’s what.

Kanan_InvestComics Punisher_InvestComics Ravengers_1_InvestComics

Spider-Gwen #3 will guest star the Punisher. There are so many variants with this issue. Nice too though. Earth 2 Worlds End #26 has Darkseid winning it all. He’s a bad dude. And have you seen the cover on this one? Darkseid dangling the defeated heroes in the air like dead mice. So awesome. Sticking on topic about covers, the new Nailbiter #11 cover is as disturbing as the number one issue isn’t it? The Punisher #17 cover by Mitch Gerads is awesome too.

The new Puppet Master #1 will have 24 variant covers. Yes that’s 24, not a typo.

Two followups to sold out number one comics come this Wednesday. Blackcross #2 and Citizen of the Galaxy #2. Let’s see if readership keeps in stride and good word comes out that these series are for real.

Here is the long list of number one comics to check out this week; UFOlogy #1, Arkham Manor Engame #1, True Believers Age of Apocalypse #1, True Believers Marvel Zombies #1, Avengers Millennium #1, Sinestro Annual #1, Empire of the Dead Act Three #1, Rick and Morty #1, Gotham Academy Endgame #1 will have a possible introduction here, Poet Anderson Dream Walker #1, Guardians of the Galaxy Best Story Ever #1, No Mercy #1, Hoax Hunters #1, My Little Pony Fiendship is Magic #1 and Looking For Group #1. Wow that’s a lot of number one comics coming out. Better get those reading glasses on.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Comic Releases 11/27/13

One standout comic this week could be Nova (2013 5th Series) #10. Last week with the mention of Nova #19 (1978), many fans were very puzzled by this. I received a few messages on the board, Instagram, and personal email saying “Nova? Really?” Yes Nova, really. If you haven’t been paying attention, let me fill you in a bit.

Marvel Studios are about to embark on a whole new universe of pictures and change everything. Yes they are going to change the way movie goers watch “space/cosmic” films with the release of one film; Guardians of the Galaxy. What this particular film will do is open up the flood gates to introduce Marvel in space; their Cosmos if you will. Yes the film will have to fare well in order for the initial steps to be taken, to progress. If all goes well (which it should), Marvel Studios will be on their way to building a cosmic storyline on the big screen as no one has ever done before (besides Star Wars of course, calm down). Now there is one point though, which has been mentioned on InvestComics a few times, what about failure? What happens WHEN, not IF, When a Marvel Studios movie does not meet expectations at the box office? This will in fact happen, it’s inevitable. It will be very interesting to see how Disney reacts to the bad box office draw. One thing is for certain however, the comic book market will be affected to a degree. The prices will drop back into place where they probably should be and level off. The constant influx of various movies and television show announcements are driving prices batty for quite some time now. THIS will be the crash, NOT the variants, 3D covers, etc. The hyperbole will drive pricing back to reality if expectations are not met in the mainstream. Would you pay $10,000 for a Walking Dead CGC 9.9? Yes someone did. THAT is what you call a bad investment. $10,000 on a first appearance 9.9 of Green Goblin, Lois Lane, or even Wolverine makes sense. These characters are household names. Walking Dead is a hot zombie television show right now. It will eventually run its course and no longer be hot anymore. Granted, good story, good show, but its zombies….that’s it. Yes anyone can say “it’s about the character development and how we follow them” but in actuality, no zombies, no show. Not bashing the show, giving a dose of speculation reality here. Spending $10,000 on the number one issue is a bit of an oversight on that buyers part, but maybe, just maybe I’ll be wrong on this.

[scrollGallery id=321]

So back to Nova, as explained Marvel Studios will take the leap into space. It’s a risky one with Guardians because no one really knows of them. Rocket Raccoon will be the star in this one, so it’s best you stock up on him. Anyway, Nova has been mentioned in passing by Marvel and through some rumors. If Marvel is reaching out into the space universe, what’s not to think Nova won’t be a part of that? Same with Warlock, Silver Surfer, Death, and maybe Rom! Remember him? How cool would that be to have a Rom movie? Yes wrestling with that toy company can get dicey, but what Disney wants, Disney gets. What it all boils down to is making sure as a speculator that you have all of your Cosmic ducks in a row. Pick up the rare first appearance, those odd number one issues, the status quo change books, and the rare Thanos variants. It will pay dividends down the line IF the Guardians of the Galaxy movie does well. Nova (2013 5th Series) #10 will play pretend and solict this comic as the 100th issue. Gotta love the restarts, five of them for Nova to be exact here. The comic will come with all sorts of variants. The prize variant will be the JG Jones Incentive. A $60 book that can see some decent gains if handled properly. Nova #10 will star the NEW New Warriors (another potential space team down the road). Check out the first appearance of the New Warriors (“old team”) in Thor #411 (1989). A must own.

We like intros don’t we? Of course we do! Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #20 will introduce a new villain named Whirlwind, so check that out. Kick-Ass 3 (2013 Marvel) #5 will do some introducing themselves with a new villain team. Infinity Hunt (2013) #4 plants the seeds of Marvel’s next major event. Are we tired yet of these major events? And speaking of Infinity, Infinity (2013 Marvel) #6 will conclude with an oversized issue as Thanos fights everyone! And incidentally, Iron Man #55 is Still a must buy. Avengers Assemble (2012) #21 hints at the team Inhumans. The Inhumans are about to have a breakout year next year. Get on top of Fantastic Four #45 (1965) for the first appearance of the Inhumans. Staying on topic with the Avengers, Avengers Arena (2012) #18 will see its final issue this week. With more death and a launching pad for something else. Something major will be happening in All New X-Men (2012) #19 so be sure to glance through that book. Damian Son of Batman (2013) #2 is sold out for the most part on the retail level. The variants are completely sold out. The Andy Kubert black and white variant would be a nice CGC sig series flip book. Forever Evil Argus (2013) #2 will highlight Deathstroke. One of the baddest dudes in the DC Universe. If you’re a regular reader of this column each week, you already know that InvestComics is a huge Deathstroke supporter. I have always felt that the Deathstroke character is on the cusp of some serious play, but DC doesn’t know exactly what to do with him (i.e. Nightwing). Yes they finally put him on television (sparingly), but that’s not enough. Get this guy going already. Bigger role on the show, movie appearances, chop chop DC! A huge recommendation throughout the years on InvestComics has been The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) and it will continue to be in BUY mode with InvestComics. And for those keeping score at home, Forever Evil Argus #2 variant is sold out, which means absolutely nothing on the speculator side of things. Geoff Johns will be hitting all out on Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #25. The conclusion to the “Death of a King” storyline. The new Superior Spider-Man event begins this week; The Darkest Hour in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #22. Venom will have his first run in with Superior Spidey in this issue. This should be very interesting. In the “in case you missed it” department, DC will release Sandman Overture (2013) Special Edition #1. The issue will feature a bunch of useless extras if you’re interested.

IDW will bring back a cult favorite in Sam Keith’s Maxx Maxximized (2013 IDW) #1. A collector can buy the first appearance of Maxx in the overprinted Darker Image #1 (1993).

Black Science (2013 Image) #1 will be THE Image Comic to grab this week. Already sold out at the retail level, but the $10 Midtown Comics variant will be the one to get if this comic makes an impact in the aftermarket. IDW’s Mr Peabody and Sherman (2013 IDW) #1 variant is sold out. Never Ending (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Quest (2013 Zenescope) #1, and Sledgehammer 44 Lightning War (2013) #1 are all on the verge of selling out.

Invest wisely,
