Disney buys Fox Studios and fans get some of their Marvel characters that have been M.I.A. for some time now. Besides the Fantastic Four coming back, so will Wolverine. Not the old guy, not the girl, the real Wolverine we all know and love. Check out Hunt For Wolverine #1 as the beginning and the return to some normalcy to the Marvel Universe. Speaking of normal, lots and lots of variant covers to choose from here. Writer Charles Soule and artists David Marquez and Paulo Siqueira. 
When Marvel set out on a 16 week, continuous Avengers storyline, many thought it would never be without a delay….somewhere. That delay never occurred and the result was nothing short of absolute praise from comic fans everywhere. Of course the naysayers and complainer’s will always be around, but for the most part, comic fans were very satisfied with the run thus far. The ‘No Surrender’ story concludes this Wednesday in Avengers #690. The issue will introduce readers to an all new Avengers team.
The Cosmic Ghost Rider trends seem to be leveling a bit. The first appearance in Thanos #13 still is sort after. With the character still in its infantile hot stage, Marvel strikes while the iron is hot. This week; Thanos Annual #1 features a narrative story from the Cosmic Ghost Rider himself regarding all of the ‘bad stuff’ Thanos has ever done. Bad, very bad Thanos. It’s safe to say this could be the most trending comic of the week. Writers; Kieron Gillen, Ryan North, Al Ewing, Christopher Hastings, Katie Cook, and Donny Cates. Artists; Frazer Irving and Katie Cook. Oh, one more thing regarding Cosmic Ghost Rider. Check out the Gabriel Hernandez Walta cover to Redneck #12. It’s a hysterical homage to the Cosmic Ghost Rider craze.
Over the years Marvel Comics have given Moon Knight fans countless origin stories on Marc Spector. Seems as though if they gave a retelling or a new angle on it, it would garner more attention to the character. Moon Knight gets another retelling or a spice up origin in Moon Knight #194. Realize one thing though. If, or when Moon Knight breaks out into his own Netflix series or film, the speculators will go nuts and the trends will hit hard on all Moon Knight issues. The first appearance in Werewolf By Night #32 will break out tremendously. Any issue of Moon Knight that resembles an origin, first appearance, a premiere issue, a number one issue, a rare variant, etc will trend big. Click right HERE and thumb through some Moon Knight comics on Ebay. Get these comics cheaper now, before the ‘big wave’ hits. You never know.

Amazing Spider-Man #797 – This comic will trend for some time. It’s the first Red Goblin appearance. “Full” appearance? Probably, he’s right there on the Ed McGuinness variant cover.

Buy, Sell, Hold – Iron Man #55

One comic is chosen to go under the scope. What is the best course? As a speculator, is it worth buying, selling or holding?
Here are the pros and cons, YOU decide.
(Note: This article was drafted a few months ago.)

Iron Man #55 – 1973 – First appearance of Thanos & Drax
Writer: Jim Starlin & Mike Friedrich
Art: Jim Starlin
Inker: Mike Esposito
Cover Art: Jim Starlin & Joe Sinnott

PROS: Thanos is a Marvel Studios villain 11 years in the making. The studio has been planting seeds since 2008 and will have the purple giant unleash his full power in the spring of 2018 – Drax from Guardians Of The Galaxy has helped this comic along in the last couple of years – Since the debut of Thanos in 1973, the comic has steadily increased in value over the years, obviously exploding beyond speculators expectations in recent years – The steady climb throughout the years had nothing to do with Drax (PRE Guardians of the Galaxy) – A CGC 9.4 graded sold a few days ago for $1,995.95 – One of the most popular Bronze Age comics within the collectors market – Early Jim Starlin professional work – Writer/Artist Jim Starlin, essentially began the TRUE Marvel Cosmo universe with this issue – First appearances of Drax, Starfox, Blood Brothers & Mentor – A legitimate Marvel villain with strong presence on film – Drax has more staying power than Thanos (see cons) – With Disney about to finalize a deal for the rights to the Fox comic book movies, Marvel Studios may step up the game with a team-up with Thanos and Apocalypse…years from now.      

CONS: According to the CGC census, there are a total of 2910 graded Iron Man #55 comics. Of that total, 829 are in near mint 9.0 and higher. Not a hard book to find in near mint condition – These totals do not reflect CBCS, as they do not have a census (yet). Which means there are probably well over 3000 of these comics graded out there. Maybe more than 900 near mint copies? – Thanos will appear in Infinity War and most likely in the next movie thereafter(?) That’s it folks. He’ll probably appear in TWO movies and Thanos is done (for now?). IF Thanos is used in more Marvel movies after these two(?), Thanos will become the modern-day Darth Vader, in which this particular con becomes a pro – Nothing is pointing in the direction that Thanos will be a main adversary within the Marvel Universe moving forward after Infinity War and after. Marvel loves to “move things along” as far as their villains go. Our speculation here is Thanos is either a one and done or a two and done – Does ONE or TWO major movie appearances warrant an (unsigned) Iron Man comic to fetch almost $2000? – Will the Drax character (help) really hold this comic at these levels? Although a character that may be around a bit longer than Thanos, the market may freeze up a bit once speculators realize Thanos is done – Marvel is rumored to really change things up after this phase is up. Possibly moving away from the cosmos – When the correction hits the market, this may take a hit due to the abundance availability of this comic and its “easy to find” near mint copies.  

What do you think? Is this comic a buy, sell or hold?

Comic Broker Report – November 2014

Here’s a small sampling of the comics I like this month and no I am not spending money on the insane cover price DC is asking for the Harley annual that smells like weed.

The Avengers 170,171

Looking for Ultron keys?  Scoop up these Perez Classics before it’s too late.

ssAvengers_Vol_1_171

Ultron doesn’t appear in the Avengers again until 202.

 

Fantastic Four 53 ( First Ulysses Klaw )

That sure looks like Klaw in the Avengers 2 trailer and he’s not the only reason to hunt down this key Black Panther book ( first Vibranium! )  The market is already wise to this one so prices are going to be high but it is a pretty safe bet.  Ya might be tempted to sell now with Marvel’s big phase 3 news but Black Panther key books are only going to rise in value  due to the broad appeal of this character.

ff 53 first u klaw

 

Fantastic Four 173, 174 ( First Counter-Earth )

Upcoming events from Marvel look to incorporate their own multiverse like story lines.  The High Evolutionary created one of those worlds here.

imagesff 174 first counter-earth

 

SUICIDE SQUAD:

Let’s get a head start on the Suicide Squad film speculation.  Here are the first appearances of some of the more obscure members:

First Multiplex

firestorm 2 first multiplex

 

First Mindboggler

I cannot believe how many Firestorm comics are fast becoming key DC books!

firestorm 29 first mindboggler

 

First Jaculi

first jaculi

 

First Vixen

God this is an awful cover!

action 521 first vixen

Other Key Suicide Comics:  Vol.1 1,23,49

 

And some other last minute comics…

 

Spider-Man Summer Sampler 2012 ( First Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel )

Are you looking for the spot where Carol Danvers appeared as Captain Marvel for the first time?  She appeared on the cover to this freebee months before Avenging Spider-Man 9 and issue one of the regular series.

567653

Silver Surfer 44 ( First Infinity Gauntlet )

With the announcement of the Infinity War films Marvel has thrown down the gauntlet for speculators!  While others are throwing away money on comics like the Infinity War 1-6 series ( which might just prove to have no connection the films other than the title ) I’m betting on cheap back issues like this.
