Happy holiday’s to all of our fans! You have continued our reign as the longest entertainment/speculative comic book website on the net. We appreciate every single one of you. Let’s get to this week’s comics….

Although we think Marvel is playing up the Phoenix return a bit too much, a new dedicated comic this Wednesday declares the big return; Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Leinil Francis Yu.
Star Wars fans will be happy campers this Wednesday. If you have seen The Last Jedi movie, you will have learned and seen a planet named Crait. A salt ridden planet in which the Resistance did battle with the First Order many years before. A new comic this week will focus in on that battle. Check out Star Wars The Last Jedi – The Storms of Crait #1. Creators Ben Acker, Ben Blacker and Mike Mayhew do the honors.
Amazing Spider-Man #793 continues the hot Venom Inc. (part 4) storyline.
Looks as though The Purple Man character is really making his presence felt lately. Jessica Jones #15; Return of The Purple Man part 3. Purple Man first appeared in Daredevil #4 (1964).

Buy/Bid – Amz Spm #793

Buy/Bid – Doomsday #2

Action Comics #994

Buy/Bid – Hawkman #1

Teen Titans #15

DC’s Doomsday Clock #2 arrives this week. Fans ate up the first issue with a mostly reserved opinion on whether or not they’ll like where writer Geoff Johns is leading us to, let’s see how the follow-up goes. We have great faith it will go just right.
A possible new villain appearance in Action Comics #994. “Booster Shot” part 2.
The “Super Sons of Tomorrow” story continues in Teen Titans #15.
Phoenix is back for Marvel this week, Hawkman will bid his return this week as well. Check out Hawkman Found #1 from Jeff Lemire, Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan.

InvestComics 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.
A new release from Scout Comics; Ghosts of Hiroshima #1. With Scout comics, two things are always guaranteed, good art and good storytelling. Creators; Jim Krueger and Luigi Borillo.
From interesting new release from Image Comics; Bonehead #1 from creators Bryan Edward Hill and Rhoald Marcellius.
Not sure how much of the new Cerebus comic is new material (if at all), but with creative names like Dave Sim and Frank Miller (Dark Knight homage cover) attached, no matter; The Vark Knight Returns #1.
Comix Tribe had Sink #3 on delay, so we’re not sure if Sink #4 will hit this week. It’s supposed to, so we’ll see. It’s a hot series for the Tribe, so hopefully they get back on schedule.

Scarlett’s Strike Force #1 (IDW); creators Aubrey Sitterson and Nelson Daniel.
Magika #1 (Red Giant); creators David Lawrence, Kevin Juaire and Sebastian Cheng.
Zipper: Cosmic Jungle #1 (Arcana Comics).

Dawn  (2)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

 

Wonder Woman has made her movie debut in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer (Pictured). Now the clock starts ticking as to when WW will get her own solo film, if ever. Can she, will this character be able to hold up in their own film? That’s the million dollar question. A great character with some serious history. There are many directions the Wonder Woman franchise can go, whether any of them work or not is the big question. Not doubting it cannot be done, just a little hesitant to call a WW solo film an absolute winner. For now though, there are plenty of comics to pick up within the 74 years of comic history here; first appearances and key books. Plenty of time as well. We won’t see a solo Wonder Woman title movie for a while. Look for these comics below in the mean time. Some are great pickups right now because the frenzy has not hit.

Dawn  (1)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

There are many Wonder Woman first appearances and key issues that did not make this list. With the rich history comes a lot of material. Also, the DC universe is a vast and convoluted place. There are too many Earth 2, Earth this, Post Flashpoint, Pre Crisis, Post Crisis, etc. So because of this, there will be misses in this checklist. You are more than welcome to list any comic we may have missed in the comment section below.

Also, many of the earlier comics are not available on Ebay right now. Just because they are not available now does not mean they wouldn’t be later on. Some are in fact available right now, like the very first appearance in All Star Comics #8. Be sure to check back to see if some of the comics you seek have been posted.

 

All Star Comics #8 (1941) First appearance of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor. Golden Age.

Sensation Comics #1 (1942) Second appearance of Wonder Woman. Origin. First appearance of the Invisible plane.

Well maybe a couple, but the main reason is the introduction of new ideas which in turn comes back to the reader/fan in the form of new characters and the return of old forgotten ones. This week in no exception with comics like Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #17 from DC. New villains will be hitting that issue. Earth 2 (2012 DC) #9 features the return of the new Wotan. Wotan first appeared way back in 1940 and comes with a $30,000 price tag. A first appearance of Wotan is worth that much you ask? Well yes and no. It is, but it also happens to be the first appearance of Dr. Fate. Avengers Assemble (2012) Annual #1 gives fans the return of Sunturion. Sunny first showed up in Iron Man #143 (1981). The creative team is enough for this collector to go searching for this book. John Romita Jr. on pencils and Mr. Iron Man writer himself Bob Layton. No need to second guess buying this comic for a few bucks. The issue also features a turning point for one of the most underrated characters within the Marvel library. Buy the Avengers #57 (1968) at any price you can and stash it away. When Vision finally makes it to the big screen you will kicking yourself that you did not pick this comic up at a reasonable price when you had the chance. Vision’s first appearance is a long term investment that has tremendous upside, do not wait. Fearless Defenders (2013) #1 is one of those comics that many of the comic book store owners will hear a collective sigh when the collector’s see it on the shelf. It features two second (third?) rate female characters; Valkyrie and Misty Knight. The ::sigh:: will be warranted. Most female lead comics have a very hard time sustaining long term interest. Birds of Prey were a great tandem, but that too grew tired with the fans. For some reason female leads do not tend to hold their own comics for very long. They make spectacular team players and there are very strong female characters out there. Some; most are even better than the men! Yes, Wonder Woman has succeeded in many ways, but how many relaunch’s, status changes, costume changes has she endured? Case in point. So will the Valkyrie (first appearance Avengers #83 -1970)/Misty Knight (first appearance Marvel Premiere #21 – 1975; Gil Kane cover) team up be any different this time around? Well this time….maybe. Remember a couple of weeks ago when InvestComics carried some news about some dude named Cullen Bunn of the Sixth Gun comic getting picked up for a pilot from NBC? Well that guy, he’s writing Fearless Defenders #1. So yes, maybe this time will be a bit different. Staying with the female theme here we also have Young Romance New 52 Valentines Day Special (2013) #1 coming out this week. This is DC’s very big attempt to test out the female market. Will the female fans buy into the comic book romance novel? Most men certainly aren’t. This isn’t a knock or anything, it’s just truth. Look at that awesome cover of Superman and Woman Woman in a make out session. Is this really geared towards men? If it were part of the storyline going through Justice League, yes, but a one shot of love story after love story pertaining to Valentine’s day? This is a fantastic way for DC to test the waters, but one possible fatal mistake they have made is a biggie. A $7.99 price tag is a bit steep guys. Having a two issue run leading up to Valentine’s Day next week would have made more sense. Now getting back to what some females may do to us men is driving us to be Madmen! Well not really, but it’s a silly lead in to Thunderbolts (2012 2nd Series) #4. This issue will focuses on the return of Madman. The Madman first appeared in the Incredible Hulk #363 (1989). Writer Peter David does the introductions here, so not bad for a quick search through some long boxes at the local comic shop or convention.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=221] Okay so we spoke about the GOOD that the new ideas from the New 52 and Marvel NOW! brings. On the annoying end of the spectrum we get books like Winter Soldier (2012) #15 and Iron Man (2012 5th Series) #6. Why are they on that side you ask? Well for the simple fact that we get the proverbial “new status quo” or “all new direction”. Really?? You’re 15 issues in and 6 issues in respectively. This is Marvel saying they are not really hitting the target they want to, so things need to “change”. No they don’t. Keeping up with a good story helps and or maybe, just maybe fans aren’t interested anymore. Don’t think so? How about learning on the recent InvestComics Podcast Breaking the 4th Wall Episode #3 with Shaun Cobble and Shaun Sorenson that Winter Soldier will be canceled. So what’s the new status quo matter now with the Winter book?

Justice League #1 – First Appearances

[scrollGallery id=222] Justice League #1 will be making its splash with 52 variant covers. The variant covers are extremely disappointing to say the least. The SAME cover with a different State flag? Wow, that is lame beyond lame. Why not have better planning here and have each state represented with its core city and its landmark? New York with Superman flying by the Statue of Liberty, Batman at the Arc in St. Louis, Wonder Woman hanging out at Fenway Park, you get the idea. This would have generated a tremendous amount buzz for each city, thus creating a big aftermarket blitz. Instead we get flags? Anyway, let’s focus on the team members for the first issue and their first appearances. We’ll go from high to low. Scroll through the covers below for a side by side of the new Justice book with the first appearance cover.

Catwoman: First appeared in Batman #1 (1940). If you need any explanation here, stop reading and go watch the Superbowl pre-game for 10 hours.

Green Lantern: All American Comics #16 (1940). See above.

Green Arrow: More Fun Comics #53 (1941).  This comic will garner more attention as the Arrow show continues to do well, also with the possibility of him appearing in the new Justice League movie.

Hawkman: Flash Comics #1 (1940). Refer back to the comment early regarding female leads. The same applies for a lot men character’s as well. Hawkman is a good team oriented player, not so much a solo character.

Martian Manhunter: Detective Comics #225 (1955). Justice League movie….buy this.

Katana: Brave and the Bold #200 (1983).

Stargirl: Starman #69 (2000). With recent interest, this comic has more upside to it.

Vibe: Justice League of America Annual #2 (1984).

There are quite a few number one issues that fans should take a look at this week. Don’t get caught sleeping on some of these. Dia De Los Muertas (2012 Image) #1, Fairy Quest (2013 Boom) #1, Snapshot (2013 Image) #1, Legend of the Shadow Clan (2013 Aspen) #1, Son of Merlin (2013 Image) #1 and Red Team (2013 Dynamite) #1.

The last order of business comes on the heels of Brian Michael Bendis recently saying this on Bleeding Cool.com: “Truthfully, if ever the day comes that Rom could legally appear in a Marvel comic, whatever story I’m in the middle of writing, Rom will crash into it. I don’t care who it is talking, Rom is going to crash into their head.” With that, the market on the Rom #1 enters into the Bull market (buy market). Marvel will get Rom in their books again and maybe even in the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I sound confident here don’t I? Well ask me the same thing BEFORE Disney bought out Marvel and most likely the tone here would be vastly different. With the talk of Rom came Rocket Raccoon too. InvestComics has told collectors time after time to pick up Marvel Preview #7 (1976), the first appearance of the rodent. The comic has gone from a $10 book to over $100 already. Here’s the good news bad news deal. Bad news, you missed out on getting a $10 book. Good news is there is more upside to this comic right now than anything else mentioned in this article. That’s right fans. You may be looking at the modern day Yoda, but in Raccoon form. As for Rom #1, you need to get this copies now! Get high grades at $8 apiece, send them off to CGC and reap the rewards when Rom comes back…..home.

That’s it for this week. Don’t forget to enter to win a FREE Signed copy of my comic Vincent Price House of Horrors #1 on the InvestComics Facebook page. Click at the beginning of this article to become a fan on the InvestComics Facebook page now!

See you next week, invest wisely.

JLA Movie gets a team roster

LATINO REVIEW has reported, and MSN has run with, a list of confirmed characters for WARNER BROTHERS’ upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie.

According to the article’s sources, the movie team roster will include DC’s “trinity” of SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN along with GREEN LANTERN and THE FLASH.  They also list potential cameos from Aquaman and Martian Manhunter, as well as slim chance for a Hawkman appearance.

While everyone has at least one favorite character not on the list (I still can’t believe Ted Kord and Vibe aren’t up there) it’s also noteworthy that there is no mention of even a cameo for CYBORG, who was retconned into founding member status in DC’s NEW 52 relaunch of the comics. This also means, that unless they go with John Stewart as GL or do some Marvel movie-worthy creative casting (Sam Jackson as Nick Fury) this is going to be a pretty vanilla team.

The villain, as has been previously reported, is set to be DARKSEID, and, at the time of the LATINO REVEIW article, they were still looking for a director.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 12-5-12.

Avengers (2012 5th Series) #1 from Marvel NOW! is so secret that the solicit for the issue says “Classified.” One thing we know is NOT classified is the first appearance of this team in Avengers #1 (1963), brought to you by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee of course. A graded CGC 9.4 sold for $185,000 recently. Only one grade higher than this out there and that’s a 9.6. The Avengers are a big draw/sell right now. Look for this comic to continue its upward climb with no limit in sight. 500K very soon is not that far off of the realm here folks.

Continuing with Marvel NOW! and their re-launch titles we get Thunderbolts (2012 2nd Series) #1. The original title debuted in 1997 with Busiek and Bagley at the helm. It was and still is a very popular series. The 1997 number one issue can be bought at a very affordable price these days. So much so that you may be able to find it at your local comic shop or convention in the dollar bins.

[scrollGallery id=203]

As mentioned in previous InvestComics Hot Picks, the best part of the re-launch titles is that we get to see/read about new heroes, villains, status quo, new directions and so much more. Iron Man (2012 5th Series) #3 however we get to check out the newest Stealth Armor in Tony’s repertoire. It’s so bad ass that Marvel says “it’s the most subtle Iron Man Armor of all time!” Looking forward to this!

DC Comics debuts a new number one issue into their restart world, New 52, with Human Bomb (2012 DC) #1. Human Bomb debuted in Police Comics #1 from 1941. A graded CGC 8.0 sold for $7,000 in recent months with only 1 9.4 graded copy sitting out there. Only a total of 25 of these comics have been graded to date. The issue not only features the first appearance of Human Bomb, but also Plastic Man and Phantom Lady.

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #7 figures into the equation with revelations of who the new Hawkgirl is within the new 52 Universe. Where there is girl there is man. The Brave and the Bold #34 (1961) was Hawkgirl’s debut as well as Hawkman. Both of these characters need an “Aquaman/Geoff Johns” treatment because they are simply put, lame. As cool as one may make them look at times, they never seem to catch on the right way. A 9.0 CGC Graded of this comic sold for only $3,000? Yes exactly, lame character(s) equals lower cost. There are 9 graded at the 9.0 mark with 6 more at the 9.4 mark. The TRUE mark on this book however is that the late great Joe Kubert is all over it!

Finally this week, check out Image Comics’ I Love Trouble (2012 Image) #1. Looks like fun.

More Hot Picks & Hot Chicks coming soon stay tuned! Videos from New York Comic Con 2012 are also coming as well!

See you next week, Invest wisely.

GEOFF JOHNS & DAVID FINCH introduce all new JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA in 2013

DC Comics announced at the DC Entertainment-All Access Sunday panel at Fan Expo Toronto that a new League will be forming.

(click to enlarge)
Launching in 2013, DC Comics will publish a new ongoing comic book series, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch.

“This is a very different kind of team book,” says Geoff Johns. “On first glance, people might think the heroes of the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA stand in the shadows of Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, but Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman thrive in the shadows. They’re underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose. They’re a team of unlikely heroes who will help one another discover they’re as A-List as anybody — yes, even Vibe. Though getting there won’t be easy. Why they’re formed, why each member joins, what they’re after and who the society of villains is they’re trying to take apart will all be clear in the first issue when it hits early 2013. David and I are really focused on delving deep into what it’s like to not be a member of the big seven and why, sometimes, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”

DC’s “NEW JUSTICE”

After announcing the post-FlashPoint relaunch of all DC books for September and the new Geoff Johns and Jim Lee JUSTICE LEAGUE, the internet was reeling. Today, DC announced a slew of new #1’s they describe as “historic new first issues spinning out of the pages of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s JUSTICE LEAGUE”
