MAJOR SPOILER POSSIBILITY AHEAD. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED, SKIP THE FIRST TOP 5 PICK RIGHT NOW. 

Before Watchman #4 (2013) – Rumors abound regarding the new DC Universe Rebirth Special #1 comic coming this Wednesday is sparking MAJOR interest in this 2013 Watchmen comic. Total speculation is driving this comic a bit out of control in the aftermarket. Don’t get caught on the high-end of this move because when the dust settles, we’re looking at another ordinary comic that brings a major change within the DC Universe. Some may say, “well isn’t that important though?” Well yes and no. It’s important in the here and now, but who’s to say there isn’t another DC overhaul 3 years from now and that the major Watchmen involvement now is completely erased/meaningless. This Before Watchmen #4 comic, a possible $100 book soon, will be worth nil to cover price very fast in a few years time if DC gets tired of their “game-changing” idea. If you’re in the market for a long haul here, you want to NOT do that. Not saying there isn’t possible monies to be made here, but other sites won’t tell you this; they’ll go on the basis of how much money it’s making at the moment, which is fine, but a wise investor always looks 5, 10, 15, 47 steps ahead. Be that guy, not the fanboy.

DC Universe Rebirth Special #1 – A lot of hype surrounding this comic. A few other surprise nuggets in here that we won’t speak about, but it’s the above mentioned that’s gaining the most attention right now.

Deadpool #12 – Marvel introduces Zenpool 2099.

Scooby-Doo Apocalypse #1 – The new look Scooby-Doo series looks fantastic. Brought to us by superstar creators writers by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis, and art by Jim Lee. This will be a fun read and a dynamic change of pace from what fans know of Scooby-Doo.

Daredevil #7 Apocalypse – The Khoi Pham variant cover is simply awesome. Nuff said.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet.

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 is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Spider-Man #1 (1990) graded 9.4 – signed by Todd McFarlane and Stan Lee. This comic is signed by two of the industries most sought after signatures. The comic is listed at only $99. What a great piece to own.

DC begins their new take on their own universe this Wednesday……again. Haven’t we been here before? Maybe this time will be different and stick for a while. It’s always good to be an optimist. So the DC Universe Rebirth Special #1 comic will be THE comic to start the proverbial ball rolling. The solicit warns readers not to jump to the back of the story (comic). This reveals one thing (most probable/speculation) that there is a big unveiling about to occur. We’re looking forward to this, so should you. Don’t be a whiny fanboy, you’ll eventually read DC Comics if you’re on a strike campaign against them, so why not just pick this comic up and see where DC will be headed?

The Fearsome Five make their return this week in Teen Titans #20. Their first appearance was back in 1981; New Teen Titans #3. Written/drawn/cover by George Perez. And many other great talents as well!

Huge grand finale from DC coming this week. Check out the conclusion to the DarkSeid War in Justice League #50.

As we said with the first new look DC/Hanna Barbera release; Future Quest #1. We love the change, the risk of updating old, mundane, boring characters into modern times. Hear’s a message to the complaining fanboys, who don’t even READ the Scooby-Doo comics, who had a lot to say regarding the new look, new take, new mature theme of the Hanna-Barbera characters. Get over it, seriously. When was the last time you saw one of these fanboys actually buy a Scooby-Doo comic, read it, and then talk to their other fanboy friends about how great it was? Yes, we know that actually DOES exist in some cases, so please no emails or comments on our social media about the few we are speaking of. We’re not saying it doesn’t exist, just saying it’s far a few between that an all ages comic book is read by a 25 year old fanboy, but yet the ones that DON’T read it are the ones yelling the loudest. Simmer down. Scooby-Doo Apocalypse #1 will happen with or without you. Too bad. As for the route fans may use about not having any original material for kids to read regarding Scooby-Doo…..really?? Scooby Doo comics date as far back as 1970, plenty of comic material to pick up on before your child hits their teenage years. So it’s more about YOU than it is about them.

Now let’s get to the Scooby-Doo Apocalypse #1 comic. Written by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, and Jim Lee. The character designs are from Jim Lee. Keith and J.M. are veteran writers and always bring it. This comic has all the makings of a hit, but could fall flat on its face because sometimes things don’t always work out just because things “look cool” or have an all-star creative team. Hopefully the hype meets the readers and we get the hit we all expect. A plethora of variant covers will release on new comic day with this arrival. The Jim Lee regular cover is quite nice, but the Neal Adams, Ben Caldwell, and Joelle Jones covers are on point.

Okay, the Daredevil #7 Apocalypse variant cover is just crazy amaze balls. Khoi Pham absolutely killed on this one. Kudos to Khoi here. Kudos.

Another year, another Captain America number one issue. This time he has a new shield! Will this equate to more sales?! Probably not, but the return of Steve Rogers as Captain America in his own title; Captain America Steve Rogers #1 should peak some interest. Oh look at that, just an awesome legend giving fans a Cap cover. Mr. Jim Steranko everyone, step aside.

Another week, another Deadpool comic within the InvestComics Hot Picks article. Fans will see the return of Deadpool 2099 in Deadpool #12. We gave you a heads up on the first appearance of Deadpool 2099 (Warda Wilson & Wade) a few months back in Deadpool #6 (in which the cover completely mirrors the new release here). In the latest Deadpool issue, we’ll witness the first appearance of Zenpool 2099. Zenpool (without the 2099 attached) first appeared in Deadpool #36 (2014 – third volume). If you’re in the market for some cool Deadpool first appearances and key issues, check out the InvestComics Deadpool checklist right HERE.

The Squadron Supreme character Nighthawk manged to get his own solo comic this week. Kind of a random dude to get his own comic, right? Anyway, the Nighthawk #1 Bill Sienkiewicz/Denys Cowan regular cover would have sufficed (because it’s so awesome), but instead we get 4 other covers for an easy overkill. The first appearance for THIS particular Nighthawk was in Supreme Power #2 (2003).

Marjorie Lui continues her hit series this week with Monstress #6. If you’re not buying this comic by now, we’re not sure why you’re not. You should be.

All of Creature Entertainment’s Tommy #2 variants are sold out. Have you seen our giveaway we’re running for the ComicXposure Exclusives; Tommy #1 and Forgive Me Father #1? Click HERE to see how you can enter for a chance to win BOTH comics from InvestComics.

Top 200 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during EARLY JUNE 2014

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

This chart is styled like the old classic Wizard Magazine Top 10 Hottest Comic charts that were published every month in the 1990′s.

HotComics201406Early

 

This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

(If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know)

#97 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 (MARVEL 2014) 45 different variant covers led the biggest selling comic of the year with a release date of April 30th with 700,000 copies printed.

#98 BUNKER (ONI 2014) #1-2. Reports of a TV show in the works before #1 was even released made this a hot sellout instantly with sales for the regular cover and the 1:10 hitting record sales within days of release.

Many retailers were able to sell their copies instantly marked up. #2 was another instant sellout and quickly hit up to $10.00 per copy.

#99 THE LAST OF US (DARK HORSE) – 4 issue mini-series all issues instant sellouts and tie-in to video game. All issues are sold out and Diamond has sold out of #4 a month before its release.

Print run of #4 jumped way up and is a common book. Complete set of 4 issues hit high of $160.00 in early July. I sold a few sets at $100.00. Only #1 has had a reprint so far and that 2nd printing might be so rare that it did not chart which means likely a print run of less than 3,000 copies. Reprints were scheduled by Dark Horse for #1-3 and then cancelled but now just came out. Prices dropped down after the series was done.

Two versions of #1 exist as an early promo copy was sent out only to retailers with a print run of only 250 copies. Both versions sold out before release date at Diamond. Copies hit a high of $40.00 within first week of release. We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date. Prices cooled down after a few weeks.

NOWHERE MEN (Image) #1-3 prices had peaked at $40,25,15 in March. Set of #1-5 now sells for $60.00 #1 $30 / #2 $20 / #3 $10 / #4 $3 / #5 $3. Note the print run increases for #4 and then #5. #1 already has a 5th printing – with so many reprints of all issues on the market its hard to sell the reprints at any price currently.172 Nowhere Men 1 $2.99 Image 11815 2012 11 213 Nowhere Men 2 $2.99 Image 7368 2012 12209, Nowhere Men, 3, $2.99, Image, 7,421

AMAZING SPIDERMAN #700 DITKO VARIANT (MARVEL 2012) Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly was hotter than normal. It came out in December 2012 featuring the death of Peter Parker. But this rare variant was a 1:200 ratio which usually are worth about $100.00 but by January this comic hit a high peak of $1200.00 making it a record high sales price for any new comic in 2013.

DOCTOR WHO PRISONER OF TIME #1-12 Photo variants. Normally I do not include variants if they just have a predictable higher market value due to small print run but I am including this issue as its truly a hot issue climbing in value and selling way more than expected for the print run. Currently the 1:25 photo cover sells each month on average at about $60.00 instead of an estimated $15.00 for a 1:25 variant.

THE OTHER DEAD (IDW 2013) #1 of the regular and subscription covers sold as sets as high as $18.00 for the pair. The series was delayed in stores potentially due to the controversial 1:10 variant cover featuring President Obama with machine guns which sold way above a typical variant price hitting $40.00

THE MOCKING DEAD #1 (2013) New release comic that sold out instantly and went to 2nd print. Early sales online were all over the place with sales anywhere from $4 to $40 for the subscription cover. Currently a bit above cover for the regular cover and the subscription about $8.00

UBER #0-1-2-3 Sold out printings instantly. Originally I felt this title was being speculated on too heavily but many sales above cover have proven the demand for this series. I personally believe this is the single best looking comic of 2013 with glossy paper and amazing colors and artwork. Some amazing variant covers make it a big job to collect every cover version of each issue. The first issue was #0 and not #1. #0 is the rare ones to find. #0 has a 2nd printing called “enhanced edition”. Print runs on each individual cover are very low. There are 4 regular covers of each issue so when you take the worldwide print runs you have to divide it by 4 to get the real print run of each cover. This makes it more obvious how rare each individual cover is. In fact there are only about 2,700 copies of each cover of the first issue #0. Diamond monthly rankings for each issue and the combined print run of all the covers

3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #4 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #4 of the villains month campaign. Here are the highest prices achieved for each. Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online. Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices. Week Four Joker’s Daughter at $110.00 Doomsday at $20 Black Adam at $20 Killer Croc at $13 First Born at $13 Man-Bat at $13 Bane at $12 Sinestro at $12 Secret Society at $12 Ocean Master at $12 Parasite at $11. Joker’s Daughter is without the single most hyped up and hottest comic of the entire year and may have set world record prices for a pre-sale of a new release as collectors were paying up to $110.00 each for a copy of this book just to make sure they got one. That is paying almost 40x cover price before it even came out. Very few customers got a copy unless they were a regular file customer for Batman: The Dark Knight series. It was the hottest of all the 3D covers and the hottest comic of the entire year. However the downside I predicted is that prices could only come down and that has already started to happen.

SOLD OUT New #1 Comics for June 25 2014

Article by comic book historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com
This column is here to help promote every new comic book series debuting this week.
Pictured are the 3 new series that are selling out the fastest at Diamond !

NewComics20140625

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.
This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly so a book can easily sell out within minutes if the book gets some buzz and/or good response from readers!
So many comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.

This weekly article shows how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.
This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!
Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !
Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !
Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores if even just 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold instantly!

So any comics on the list that still have copies left are going to eventually all sell out.

Top 150 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during Early OCTOBER 2013

Top 150 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during LATE SEPTEMBER 2013

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

HotComics2013EarlyOctoberLogo

This list is updated every 2 weeks.  This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market.   I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month.     This list focuses on all regular edition covers.  (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs).   If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know.  Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold releases of the last few years online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price.  However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales.  Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

MARKET REPORT:

#1 AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #1 (ARCHIE 2013) 4 regular covers and 52 variant exclusive store covers made this the hottest new comic released recently and many sales as high as 3x guide for certain covers sold individually.

#2 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #4 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #4 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.       Week Four   Joker’s Daughter at $110.00    Doomsday at $20   Black Adam at $20   Killer Croc at $13   First Born at $13   Man-Bat at $13   Bane at $12   Sinestro at $12   Secret Society at $12   Ocean Master at $12   Parasite at $11.   Joker’s Daughter is without the single most hyped up and hottest comic of the entire year and may have set world record prices for a pre-sale of a new release as collectors were paying up to $110.00 each for a copy of this book just to make sure they got one.   That is paying almost 40x cover price before it even came out.   Very few customers got a copy unless they were a regular file customer for Batman: The Dark Knight series.  It was the hottest of all the 3D covers and the hottest comic of the entire year.   However the downside I predicted is that prices could only come down and that has already started to happen.

#3 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #3 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #3 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.      Week Three   Clayface at $20   Dial E at $46    Eclipso at $20   Deathstroke at $25   The Rogues at $15    Cheetah at $14     Penguin at $13    Ra’s Al Ghul at $13     Arcane at $13    Black Hand at $12   Scarecrow at $12    Shadow Thief at $12   Lex Luthor at $11    H’el at $7

#4 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #2 (DC 2013) 13 different 3D covers came out in week #2 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.  Week Two   Harley Quinn at $36   Mr Freeze at $31    Lobo at $31   Riddler at $20.50   Reverse Flash at $20   Court Of Owls at $18   Killer Frost at $17.50   Solomon Grundy at $13   Trigon at $13   Black Manta for $12   Mongul at $12   Brainiac at $10.50    Zod at $10

#5 3D VILLAINS MONTH WEEK #1 (DC 2013)   13 different 3D covers came out in week #1 of the villains month campaign.  Here are the highest prices achieved for each.  Some high sales actually came in pre-sales online.  Most prices have settled to about 50% of these listed prices.   Week One   Forever Evil #1 – $280 (1 per store variant cover).  Darkseid for $31  Poison Ivy for $27   Ventriloquist for $26.50    Joker for $25     Count Vertigo at $20    Creeper at $20     Deadshot at $16.50     Two-Face at $15     Relic at $14    Bizarro at $13.50     Grodd at $13    Desaad at $13    Cyborg Superman at $10

#6 CATWOMAN #23 (DC 2013) 1st appearance of Joker’s Daughter appears in the last page and is a prelude to her big appearance coming up soon in the 3D DC Villain take over month.   Prices hit $13.00 the day of release.

#7 FARLAINE THE GOBLIN #1 (STUDIO FARLAINE 2013)  New small print publisher – possibly smallest distributed comic of the year with print run of only 1350.   Two versions of #1 exist as an early promo copy was sent out only to retailers with a print run of only 250 copies.  Both versions sold out before release date at Diamond.   Copies hit a high of $40.00 within first week of release.  We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.   Prices cooled down after a few weeks.

#8 OUTLIERS #1 (2013) Indie comic self published with financing.  Highest ratings online for story and art.  Super small print run.  More and more hype every week and a print run of less than 1800 copies kept prices continually rising up and currently at $50.00.  We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.   Strong popularity kept prices high on this one after 2 months.

#9 MYTHOPOLIS #1 (ARRDEN 2013) #1 small print publisher printed 4 regular covers very limited.  Comic was delayed as the early variant covers came out 6 months ahead of time and the regular #1 shipped 3 months past original scheduling date.  Copies in first week of release sold as high as $20.00 each for regular cover #1A.     We helped bring awareness to this amazing book before release date.

#10 DAY MEN #1 (BOOM 2013) New ongoing series – #1 sold out instantly – kept rising during early August and then new movie news and the world went nuts for this book.  I received long distance calls for this book and so did other local comic shops as people wanted to buy this book in major multiples.  Hit a high of $20.00 and then online got flooded with too many copies and prices settled now at $9.00.

#11 X-FILES SEASON 10 #1 and #2 both sold out instantly (IDW) #1 2013 – brand new release sold out instantly and regular cover bringing a bit above cover constantly.

94, XFiles Season 10, 1, $3.99, IDW, 24,270

#12 ZOMBIE ANNIHILATION (SILVER PHOENIX 2013) #1 new Kickstarter small print book selling for double cover and some sellers asking 15x cover.

#13 SAGA #1-12    #1 still super hot at about $80 down from peak of $100 – all issues in demand even with high print runs.  #12 was hot for a moment when banned by Apple.  Print runs have gone up the last 5 issues in a row.  #12 has a much larger print run than #1. After The Walking Dead sensation Saga is always Image’s best selling title.

#36 THE LAST OF US (DARK HORSE) – 4 issue mini-series all issues instant sellouts and tie-in to video game.  All issues are sold out and Diamond has sold out of #4 a month before its release.  Currently all 3 1st print issues are selling for on average $23.00 EACH !  #3 hit a high of $41.00 the week of release.  Print runs of issues #1-3 are very low.   Print run of #4 jumped way up and is a common book.  Complete set of 4 issues hit high of $160.00 in early July.    I sold a few sets at $100.00.  Only #1 has had a reprint so far and that 2nd printing might be so rare that it did not chart which means likely a print run of less than 3,000 copies.   Reprints were scheduled by Dark Horse for #1-3 and then cancelled but now just came out.  Prices dropped down after the series was done.

#55 UBER #0-1-2-3   Sold out printings instantly.  Originaly I felt this title was being speculated on too heavily but many sales above cover have proven the demand for this series.   I personally believe this is the single best looking comic of 2013 with glossy paper and amazing colors and artwork.  Some amazing variant covers make it a big job to collect every cover version of each issue.   The first issue was #0 and not #1.  #0 is the rare ones to find.  #0 has a 2nd printing called “enhanced edition”.   Print runs on each individual cover are very low.  There are 4 regular covers of each issue so when you take the worldwide print runs you have to divide it by 4 to get the real print run of each cover.  This makes it more obvious how rare each individual cover is.  In fact there are only about 2,700 copies of each cover of the first issue #0.   Diamond monthly rankings for each issue and the combined print run of all the covers
