Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 7/8/15

Click on any RED link or comic cover in the article to buy/bid on the comic right now. A new page will open, so you will not lose your place here.

 

After the explosions on July fourth this weekend, seems there is nothing that will resemble the output within the speculative market this coming Wednesday, but there are some potential comics and as always some fantastic reading gets.

There is no shortage of the ridiculous variant craze coming on new comic book day this week. If you would buy all the variants between Archie #1 and Star Wars Lando #1 you’d wind up in the neighbor of about 40 comics (probably more actually). That’s 40 comics on two comic releases alone. Absurd right?

But as many would know from reading the InvestComics article on a weekly basis, there is ONE exception. ONE reason that would make any of these variants worth exploring and buying, ONE reason. Anyone recall what the InvestComics rule would be? That rule will always be (from a speculative viewpoint), the guts. Yes the outside is fancy and new on every single one of the variants. Some catch the eye of the collector, they buy it thinking they got themselves the next big thing on Ebay. Maybe for a moment that holds true (see Star Wars #1), but in the long market (buy market), we see nothing but a trophy wife. Pretty on the outside, but no substance for your self being. If a comic upon its release carries an absurd amount of variants (Star Wars #1) and you’re looking OR thinking you’re to make any kind of speculative cash 25, 35, 50 years from now on that Star Wars #1 variant, you’re missing the entire point of collecting. A couple of rules here; remember to buy a variant first and foremost because you LIKE it, not because it’s going to be worth money. Secondly, if that very expensive variant is calling you out and the resistance is very strong, you have an option to buy it because you really really like it or you can not get it because you think it’s going to be worth a lot of money someday. Newsflash, it’s not. Unless that ONE thing….the guts. As InvestComics has taught readers time and time again, it’s the inside that matter. Always will be. Unless it’s some obscure 3D Deadpool cover. This does happen from time to time, where a variant breaks out on its own due to its “looks”. The only way a variant will truly stand the test of time is because of the story on the inside. There must be an introduction or a uniqueness about it. Either one of these two characteristics will carry a modern comic. Be it a variant or not. Once you put an introduction or something with substance inside of a comic book, you instantly have the potential of something greater when it comes to the “value” of it. There is nothing wrong with a great story. That’s what comic fans always yearn for first and foremost. That said on the flip side, the speculator has to understand that buying the Star Wars Lando #1 Alex Ross variant for $240 is a big gamble. There better be a good reason to buy a comic that literally came off the presses a few days ago and is being bought for $240. Yes the ratio factor, we get it, but better than that folks. That could have been $240 spent on a Bronze Age book that would have been a better way to go. If the Star Wars Lando #1 contains the introduction that warrants an aftermarket spike, then by all means buy a variant. It’s now when the speculator needs to figure out if this is a hyperbole or a true introduction that will pay dividends for years to come. It’s an easy task actually because if the market is hot, sell it. If you make a 35% or a 233% profit, you still make money on it. Move along. Never worry about what could have been, how much more you could have made. You made profit, move on. It’s the greed and love that kills. The speculator who holds on for an extra dollar, the market passes them by, the speculator that falls in love and can’t let go of their comic, those are the ones that lose. We’re on topic of the Star Wars Lando #1 variants more so than the Archie #1 variants because at least 24 or so of the Archie variants are cover price. Like an Archie cover, buy it, done. The Lando books are priced more on different levels. So with Archie #1 you have an all new start, an all new look, new all-star creators, and onward we go! This relaunch will pertain to anything Archie regarding the film or television market Archie Comics has spoken about for a couple of years now. Archie #1 is the beginnings of it all from here on out. If Archie is a hit on the big screen or television, which it will be, look for the vibe to be directly taken from the new direction of the company. Viewers will not see the campy Archie or Jughead, they’ll witness hipster style Archie and Jughead. Watch as Archie #1 literally comes to life in time. The uniqueness will carry Archie #1 because of its banking on breaking it to film or television the way it’s storytelling and edgy looks go. If there is an introduction of any kind and that comes to fruition via film or TV, then you really have a winner on your hands. Archie #1 will have more upside than Star Wars Lando #1 if both have solid storytelling and no introductions. Lando gets the edge with an introduction……for now. Be smart, pay attention to the market.

One more thing, if you’re a Lando fan. His first COMIC BOOK appearance (not magazine/graphic novel) was in Star Wars #43 (1981). It also happens to be the second appearance of Boba Fett.

It looks like our friends at Creature Entertainment have another hit on their hands. The Gun #1 from writer John Ulloa and artist Jose Varese looks like a solid offering. Both the regular cover and the Juan Navarro variant is sold out!

Image Comics reaches back into the vault this week. Rob Liefeld is back with Bloodstrike #1. Let the fun begin! And please refrain from the insults of Rob’s talent here on the site or on any of the InvestComics social media outlets. Seriously. You bought his Deadpool, X-Force, etc books back in the 90’s if you’re old enough to remember, right? You continue to insult? Can you do any better? Honestly? If so, why are you not a wealthy comic book creator yourself then? Stop it already, following everyone’s recourse of insults because you want to “fit in” is not the way to go anymore. You’re not breaking ground by insulting Rob Liefeld. Time to realize he’s created some neat characters (Deadpool and Cable) and right the ship to a better way then trying to bully just because you feel it’s your right. It’s not. Don’t like it? Change the channel, don’t buy it, move on. Get a hold of yourself. We’re talking about comic books here, relax.

Star Trek Green Lantern #1 from IDW Publishing. One of the oddest (in serious storytelling) crossovers in some time. Writer Mike Johnson and artist Angel Hernandez. Lots of variant covers to choose from here. The Francesco Francavilla cover is a simple but poignant one.

New villains Killer Mimes are introduced in Red Hood Arsenal #2. 1872 #1 from Marvel Comics gives readers a very different take on things. Sheriff Steve Rogers leads the charge in this town called Timely. Interesting take indeed. Starfire #2 looks to continue its success, the variant is sold out as is the Spider-Verse #3 Phil Noto Incentive variant. Spider-Island #1 will be a good read. Titans Comics; Home #1 and Minions #2 are both sold out. Tomorrows #1 (Dark Horse) with artist Jason Copland is one to check out.

Bloodstrike #1 InvestComics

Strange Fruit #1 from Boom Studios. Writers J.G. Jones and Mark Waid, with art from J.G. Jones. This extremely profound story regarding racism and human exploration is a must read from these two all-star creators.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 7/1/15

Click on any red link or comic cover in the article to buy/bid on the comic right now. A new page will open, so you will not lose your place here.

 

A very light week compared to the busy ones we’ve had for a long stretch there. Perfect time to catch up on those back issues you’ve been looking for. Go through those boxes at your local shop, there are probably a few gems sitting in there.

The biggest book to look out for this week has to be We Stand On Guard #1 (Image Comics). Not only will it probably be a fantastic read, but it’s written by Brian K. Vaughan. This deals with the invasion of Canada by the United States. Invasion with big robots. How much fun is this going to be? Lots! One key element pertaining to the speculative side that makes this comic very attractive is the no variant aspect to it. Just one cover release (as of right now) and this makes for less clutter in the market, thus making this comic a probable sell out more attractive.

Grant Morrison will have a creator owned book this Wednesday; Grant Morrison’s 18 Days #1 (Graphic India). All of the variant covers are limited to 1000 copies each and are sold out already. The regular cover is sold out too. You better grab this off the shelf if you want a copy, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

New Star Wars comics coming this Wednesday, Darth Vader #7 and Princess Leia #5. Buy any of the new Star Wars comics. The stories are great and for the possible speculative side as well. New movie will be hitting in December, who knows what possible character or villain could appear in the comic before the movie.

IDW publishing has a couple of books to look out this week. Onyx #1, a new sci-fi book from Chris Ryall with a very nice limited SDCC variant. And the new Mickey Mouse #1. Regular cover and variant sold out.

As InvestComics has matured over the years, it’s not very often that a book like Barb Wire #1 (Dark Horse) gets a mention. But when it’s Adam Hughes supplying the covers, well it has to be mentioned. Especially when the regular cover blows away the variant cover.

Groot #2 will have special guest star and an awesome jam cover by Declan Shalvey. The Francesco Francavilla variant is way cool too. Watch for Groot to possibly branch out (yep yep) over the years. He already has become a fan favorite in the theaters. A solo Groot short film, Netflix film, cartoon, is not that far out of the realm.

Check out these comics this Wednesday as well; 8house Arclight #1 (Image Comics), Bob’s Burgers #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Two sold out variants already. And Spire #1 (Boom Studios).

Let’s head on over to the 3D-less Hot Picks this week shall we?

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Releases 10-9-13

[scrollGallery id=311]

There are a few comics to really keep your eyes peeled to this week. Captain America (2012 7th Series) #12 will bring the character known as Dr. Mindbubble. Yes that’s correct, Dr. Mindbubble. Okay so what’s in a name right? Hey it’s a first official appearance here, so we must take a looksee. Always nice to have intro’s within the pages of a Cap book. Afterlife With Archie (2013) #1 has created quite the buzz around the comic book scene. With the award winning talents of writer Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla, coupled with a zombie apocalypse, this new ongoing series (not for the Archie “kid readers”) is going to sell out quick. There will be variants of this comic available, be sure to grab them. The variants by the way are absolutely gorgeous.

Superman and Wonder Woman begin their romance novel/superhero comic with the Superman Wonder Woman (2013) #1 release. DC has done the unthinkable here folks!! Where’s Lois? Well welcome to the “real life”. Man gets famous; he wants the hottest chick on the block. Men are dogs aren’t they? Just kidding of course. But DC may have actually found a little niche with their experiment here. Why not put the most powerful superhero with the most powerful female hero and let the romance ensue. It may, may, may peek the interest of a “non” female reader to come along and pick this comic up. Fangirls and fanboys will pick this up regardless if it’s a decent story, but what about the elusive female readership that so many comic companies are trying to cater to? Well DC, you may have something here. Awesome stuff. The relationship between Supes and WW is essentially 66 years in the making. Better late than never right? They first met up in All-Star Comic #36 (1947). Good luck trying to snag that comic right now at a decent penny with all of the WW talk of possibly appearing in the new Superman/Batman movie. Oh and by the way, pick up the scarce variant black and white cover if you want to make a nice return on your dollar.                  

Major revelations are revealed in Batman Zero Year. Origins and a big surprise hits us in Batman (2011 2nd Series) #24. Pick that up, see if it’s a “holy sh*t!” moment or a “meh” moment. Our guess it’s going to be a “holy Batman!” Moment.   

With every successful event comes the additional spin off books, case in point this week with Forever Evil Arkham War (2013) #1. Is it really necessary to have a separate Forever Evil campaign run through Arkham? Well maybe, but it kind of feels like a 3D moment doesn’t it? Cool, but why? Money that’s why! Duh! DC Comics striking while the iron is hot here with more Forever Evil comics. Probably a great, fun read, but unless there is a major wow moment going on in here or an intro, not much going on for this comic in the aftermarket.

Speaking of cashing in, this is great. Image Comics knows that the Walking Dead is their major moneymaker right? In Walking Dead (2003 Image) #115 Rick has declared “All Out War”, a 12 part storyline that starts this week. It’s one of the most dramatic event storylines to fill these pages in some time, if ever. That’s all well and good, right? So what shall they do to introduce a new major storyline like no other? How about 12 variant covers? That’s right, 12 covers…..wow. Cha-ching!

Image Comics comes at us with more great number one comics this week; Three (2013 Image) #1 and Rocket Girl (2013 Image) #1.

Coffin Hill (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 will be another fantastic Vertigo comic probably. Death Sentence (2013 Titan Comics) #1 from Titan looks like a very interesting comic. Looks like a movie to come out of that someday possibly. Cryptozoic Man (2013 Dynamite) #1, already covered on Comic Book Men season II, look for more coverage on this comic in Comic Book Men season III. Horror comics are making a mild comeback and this week the much talked about (positive) Department of Monsterology (2013 Renegade Arts) #1 will be hitting the shelves. A few cool/fun comics to check out this week; Shaolin Cowboy (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Multiple Warheads Down Fall (2013) #0, and Marvel Universe Hulk Agents of Smash (2013) #1.

That’s it for this week. Don’t to enter the contest, LIKE/Follow InvestComics. New York Comic Con bound, see you in 2 weeks!

InvestComics Comic Hot Pick 2-20-08

Make a sign of a $ instead of a Z

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zorro # 1 – Dynamite Entertainment 

The Hot Pick this week involves a character; an Icon if you will that has been around 89 years! Since 1919 Zorro has painted his trademark Z on anyone that dared try him.

Dynamite publishing is no stranger to the success of releasing Icon’s back into the Comic book world. Lone Ranger was a huge success, but with as much fanfare it received it quickly faded into obscurity.  

Matt Wagner gives this new “Year One” Zorro adventure a go. Matt is a legendary writer and with him you have the same artist that made the Lone Ranger come to life, Francesco Francavilla. Throw in a cover by John Cassaday and you have yourself a nice trio going here. 

InvestComics is going to recommend a quick buy/sell based on the initial sales of the first couple of weeks. The Variants are going to be a hot item very quickly. It’s  probably best if the investor get rid of these rather swiftly. While there is an obvious formula that Dynamite is following here, the end result is going to be the same. Hot now, cold sooner than later. 

A high risk in the long run. The immediate future is a better place to be thinking about with this comic.

Invest wisely.
