IC 100 Club Pick – Avengers #234 – Click to Buy/Bid

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.

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: TWO CGC comics for $99. The Avengers #234 (1983) 9.8 AND 9.4. The Scarlet Witch is a mainstay (for now) within the Marvel cinematic universe. The Avengers #234 comic retells the Scarlet Witch origin. Both a 9.8 and a 9.4 priced at $99 is a sweet deal. This isn’t $99 for each, it’s for both. Two 1983 comics graded, with one being a 9.8 is a good deal. Better get this before it’s gone.

From Dark Horse comes a new Predator story; Predator Life And Death #1. Read the InvestComics review right HERE from filmmaker Ian Powers.

Image Comics’ The Discipline #1, written by Peter Milligan and art by Leandro Fernandez looks like a great read.

We love how the new Green Lantern #50 variant cover has Batman and Superman on it. No Green Lantern at all. Where’s Green Lantern? Get that money DC! But the Doug Mahnke cover is kinda sweet though.
Find out more about the new Batgirl villain in Batgirl #49. The conclusion of the Batman And Robin Eternal #22 story line will bring every single Batman partner into one book. His minions, his second fiddles, his pipsqueaks, his “you’ll never be Batman” peeps….you get the idea.

The Dustin Nguyen Batman Beyond #10 variant is quite awesome.
The $600+ Jim Lee Dark Knight III The Master Race #3 variant is still available at certain outlets. What a surprise right? A $600 brand new comic book is not sold out? Decisions Decisions…..should you go with that mid-grade first appearance of Black Panther or buy this book?

Mary Jane makes it onto another Invincible Iron Man cover; Invincible Iron Man #7. This cover is drawn by Kate Niemczyk. Marvel’s Women of Power covers are fantastic.
What’s behind the “classified” black-out section on the Deadpool #8 cover? Only cover artist Scott Koblish knows! The secret comic cover variant. Too funny.
The Black Widow title will work on its sixth volume number one issue. Mark Waid will write this volume.
The new Spider-Man series starring Miles Morales is doing very well. The Spider-Man #2 cover from Sara Pichelli will have non-fans pick this up and thumb through. More fans!
Avengers Standoff Assault On Pleasant Hill Alpha #1 (Party Cover) is sold out. Maybe is has to do with Gwenpool being on the cover?
The new Uncanny Avengers series is going to focus on the character Synapse; Uncanny Avengers #6. Her first appearance came in The Uncanny Avengers #1. The first EVER appearance of this character came in Daredevil #376 (1998).

Review – Gutter Magic #2

NOTE: The InvestComics site is BEST viewed on Google Chrome!

Gutter Magic #2

IDW Publishing
Writer:  Rich Douek
Pencils:  Brett Barkley
Color: Jules Rivera
Letterer: Nic J. Shaw

(Click on the comic cover or red link to buy/bid from ALL available Ebay sellers)

The books that are coming out of the new Comics Experience imprint with IDW are really hitting all the bases here, if Gutter Magic is any sort of indication of whats to come, I think we’re going to see some regular spaces reserved on the racks, and Gutter Magic#2  needs the space!  Right into the action, and picking up where we last left Cinder and Blacktooth, writer Rich Douek and artist Brett Barkley, continue to weave the spell that they cast on us in the completely sold out Gutter Magic #1. I hope you got your copy of that one!  But if you didn’t, be sure to pick up Number 2, because this one cranks the story up to the next level! It’s all too often you see issue one making this amazing splash, and then issue 2 drops off and lags, along with sales, but not so here, reader!  The wonderful cliffhanger that was set up in the last issue, was expertly resolved with one of the best hooks I’ve seen done outside of a first issue, and then our heroes are off on the rest of their adventure.  The plotting is solid, and the pacing is extremely well thought out. I read this one twice, once only looking at the art, and again with the full word/image experience, and the clarity of the visual information storytelling is on point, and nicely coupled with distinct character voices. Everything is clear, but you never know what to expect next.  Rich and Brett, expertly beefed up and exposed even more of the tantalising world they teased us with in #1, further deepening the mythos with compelling new characters and skyscraper scaling stakes in this instalment of their magical alternate Earth quest.  Keep your eyes on Rich Douek, he’s got the kind of storytelling chops that you see in people that end up being known as Mike Mignola or J.K. Rowling.  This little story has been breaking the internet with all the buzz, so if #2 sells out as fast as # 1 did, it’s going to be really hard to get your hands on these in the future. You might just feel like some kind of unlucky comic bastard missing out on the opportunity to pick this one up in the knowledge that fate had plopped you in a time when such sequentially artistic gold was being published. Grab it, read, put it in plastic, spray it with mom repellant, and lock it in a safe, because it might not ever be 2016 ever again!

Review – Exodus The Life After #3

Exodus the Life After 3

Exodus The Life After #3 – Click to Buy/Bid

EXODUS: THE LIFE AFTER #3
Oni Press
Writer: Joshua Hale Fialkov
Art/Cover Art: Gabo

(Click on the comic cover or red link to buy/bid from ALL available Ebay sellers)

This is the most absurd premise I have seen yet,  God reveals the secrets of the Universe to Earnest Hemingway.

I love it.  I want more,  I want to go back to the beginning and see where this little gem of a comic came from.  Stories like this one are why I got into storytelling.  I simply can’t tell you how much I loved this.  This art style by Gabo, puts you in the characters shoes, I could see the story as if I were Earnest Hemingway, and the scary part, is I really got the perspective of the character of God in this story too.  It was hypnotically told and expertly revealed.  Fialkov has a writing style that reminded me of Stanislav Lem in this one, he contrasted absurd circumstances with profoundly deep points of view that few of us ever consider.  This is comedic literature in the comics medium at it’s best!

Bravo!  Now, if you are offended easily, best steer clear, but if you are into good dialogue, and have a strong sense of Irony, you may be pleasantly tickled by this entertaining little collection of coloured paper.

Review – Conan the Avenger #22

Conan the Avenger #22 (Dark Horse Comics)
Writer:Fred Van Lente
Artist:Brian Ching
Letters: Richard Starkings & comicraft

Conan the Avenger #22 – Click to Buy/Bid

Robert E. Howards’ stories sure have legs, and Conan has entertained us in novels and film, animations and comics for quite some time now.  Most people are only familiar with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of the character, but there most certainly is more. The last time I read a Conan comic Roy Thomas was writing it and the character was still being published by Marvel.

Fred van Lente knows that every comic could be a readers first, as was the case for me with this one. This issue is just an example of damn good storytelling, and good comics craft. The book is well paced, and beautifully drawn by Brian Ching. Most notably is a splash page on pages 4 and 5 of a harem of lovely ladies that I am sure Mr. Ching took no smaller pleasure in drawing than I did in viewing.  The action is well done, with verve and great posing. The story is told in a third person narrative in the form of a letter warning of danger, revealing the underlying situation and moves the plot forward expertly and with beautiful language. I love seeing a creator employ the unique tools of the comics medium, and Van Lente uses a great dual narrative here, juxtaposing a beautiful visual story that goes between the macro plot of the current arc, and the micro story of this issue tying it all up expertly at the end.  I have not read other issues in this series, but this book will be going into my shopping cart on a regular basis from now on. If you love the comics form and good story you won’t want to take your eyes off this creative team, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too.

Review – Hangman #2

The Hangman 2

The Hangman #2 – Click to Buy/Bid

Hangman #2 (Dark Circle Comics)
Script: Frank Tieri
Art: Felix Ruiz, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Rachel Deering
Cover: Tim Bradstreet
Variant Cover: Mike Huddleston

(Click the Red link(s) or cover(s) to Buy/Bid from all available sellers on Ebay)

Winter may not be as cold as expected, but Comics veterans Frank Tieri (Wolverine, Batman, Red Sonja: The Black Tower”) and Felix Ruiz (“Wolverine: MAX, Halo) have clocked in the second instalment of their bone chilling new revival of “The Hangman,” at Archie Comics’ Dark Circle imprint to keep you cringing till spring.  First off, you should know, this book is F*&*ing Disturbing!  Which is exactly why I think I found a new book to follow, life needs a little disturbing fiction to give us an edge, and theres nothing like a spirit of vengeance sanctioned by heaven and beset upon the earth by the devil himself to give you a little guidance on which paths not to follow in life. So, if you like to have trouble sleeping at night, then pick this one up.

Frank Tieri does an amazing job introducing us to main character and anti-hero Mike Minetta.  Don’t worry if you missed issue #1,  newcomers will pick up the key info fast as Mike wakes up in Hell and comes face to face with all the people he’s sent there before him, finally to be made an offer he can’t refuse by Ol’ Scratch , himself. Harrowingly rendered by comics great Felix Ruiz, this is one book that just sticks to your brain cells.  Theres been, of late, a major trend in media, film and television with stories of reckoning with the lord of the abyss; I wouldn’t be surprised if this story turns out to get some extra attention, so invest some of your time and read The Hangman #2, it won’t disappoint.
