Reborn #2 – This series will continue to sell out for obvious reasons. Two fantastic creators and a great book, period. The variant is sold out already.

Jessica Jones #2 – Marvel promises something BIG in this comic.

Spawn #267 – Fans get a Spawn this week with new powers and a possible new costume. We love new outfits, don’t we? Written and drawn by the man himself, Todd McFarlane. Have you seen our Todd McFarlane checklist?

Thanos #1 – Thanos returns in his own series. Reading and watching the big purple guy destroy things is always fun.

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. 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. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!

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: Incredible Hulk #100 (CGC 9.8). We’ve been saying it for years and years. Planet Hulk will be a factor on the big screen and the comic book market (already has). This $99 higher grade comic will be double its value, easily, once Planet Hulk comes more into light as becoming a reality of a blockbuster movie. That is all. Buy it soon, a few collectors are watching it.

That David Lopez All New Wolverine #14 cover sure reminds us of the old Wonder Woman bondage covers way way back. Great cover regardless.
Namor is not dead after all! What an unexpected expected surprise. Fans get the comeback story of Namor that will probably lead into a solo comic to follow. Namor’s comeback begins in Squadron Supreme #13.
DC’s ‘I am Suicide’ story continues this week in Batman #11.

Deadpool gets a couple of slots in this week’s Hot Picks article.
Domino will take over the Deadpool And The Mercs For Money team. Not only will she take over the team, but she’ll debut a new team too. Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #4 features the addition of Ape-Man and Hit-Monkey. Since InvestComics gave readers a heads up on the original team in January, in which several branched out into their own books as we predicted. One actually branching out to a cartoon. (See InvestComics Hot Picks  #409 for the first appearance of those characters and see the InvestComics Facebook page on the cartoon debuting one of the characters we were so eager on in January). So with all that we give you Ape-Man’s first appearance (1); Daredevil #10 (1965). The second Ape-Man first appearance (2); Daredevil #157 (1979). And of course, Hit-Monkey first appeared in Hit-Monkey #1 (2010).

Marvel has found success in their mash-up characters in the last couple of years. A mash-up from 2008 makes it’s way back in a big way this week. Venompool will debut in his own series; Deadpool Back In Black #1. Boy will the variant comics be a biggie in the aftermarket. Fanboys will pay top dollar for that graded variant more so. As far as Venompool. This will not be the first time he’s appeared. He first appeared in Cable & Deadpool #50 in 2008. A comic to keep an eye out on being that Marvel may want to up the ante on the Venompool character, which it looks like they are already doing with the debut of this new comic. There are plenty of variants to go around too. So many to choose from, but some more scarce than others. Our favs; The regular Salva Espin cover and Rob Liefeld variant. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Salva Espin bring the mash-up of the week!

There are those rare times when a comic character actually equates better on screen (big or small) than it does on paper. Jessica Jones is that character. Yes yes we know about Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias, but that series hit the 28th issue and was done. Yes it won some Eisner awards, we get it, but truth be told, if the character was that strong, Marvel would have kept her series going to cash in, even if it was with some other creator. They would have started and restarted a Jessica Jones series like they do with so many other characters, but they never did. That says something. Marvel (Disney) loves making money and the money (interest) was simply never there for them to even care to notice and cash in. The Netflix show absolutely rocks and if you haven’t seen it, you should. Now with the new found interest in Jessica Jones Netflix series, Marvel will try to cash in now! See how this works? Enter Jessica Jones #1. The original team of the Alias comic series returns for this new series. Alias #1 (2001) was the first appearance of Jessica Jones. Brian Michael Bendis writes and Michael Gaydos pencils. This series will be great out of the gate, but will it lose steam once the honeymoon is over? Either way, it’s still going to be an enjoyable read right out of the gate. A definite without a doubt pick up comic this week. Read it, enjoy it. And the Mike Deodato Jr. variant cover gets a big thumbs up too!

Doctor Strange #12 brings back a villain that made his debut in 1962. He’s obviously made appearances since then, but we’re just pointing out that this character is an old one! Baron Mordo’s first appearance was in Strange Tales #111. Have you checked out the InvestComics Doctor Strange Checklist from June of 2015? Click HERE to get those last minute Doctor Strange books.

A slew of variant covers accompany the debut of Marvel’s Champions #1. A new ongoing team book. Marvel’s Champions originally debuted back in 1975’s The Champions #1. That team was old school and the team coming at us on Wednesday is for the millennial.
It looks a though another death may occur in a comic this week. This week it’s Amazing Spider-Man #19. Two cover standouts here too. One from Alex Ross and the other from Aaron Kuder.

DC will debut a new character in a new comic this week. Check out Shade The Changing Girl #1 debut in her own comic. This comic will be written by Cecil Castellucci and art by Marley Zarcone.
Deadman: Dark Mansion Of Forbidden Love #1 will begin a new bi-monthy mini-series. Written by Sarah Vaughn and art by Lan Medina.
It’s very hard to fathom for some reason that the character He-Man never crossed paths with the Thundercats team. Well this crossover actually becomes a reality this Wednesday with DC’s He-Man Thundercats #1. Written by Rob David and Lloyd Goldfine. Pencils by Freddie Williams II.
Speaking of team-ups, two characters get back together again for a new mini-series; Midnighter And Apollo #1.
A possible new villain may appear in Aquaman #8. Batman #8 continues the crossover event; Night of The Monster Men part 4. The story has been fun so far and the Tim Sale cover here is equally as fun.

A few number one issues to look for from Image Comics on Wednesday. Green Valley #1, Romulus #1, Cannibal #1, and Moonshine #1. The creative talent on Moonshine #1, Brian Azzarello (writer) and Eduardo Risso (artist) with a Frank Miller variant makes this comic….”shine” a bit from the others. See what we did there? Hmmm, yeah that was bad.
The cover of Spawn #266 reminds us of the 90’s. Look at that Erik Larsen cover. Spawn, Savage Dragon and Ant. Lovely.
Scout Comics has been killing it as of the past year. We’ve recommended every single Henchgirl comic since its inception and they have all sold out. If you have bought any of the early issues we recommended, you’ve made some serious cash back from these pick-ups in the aftermarket. You’re welcome! This week, Henchgirl #11 and the debut of the a new series; Girrion #1 from writer/artist Tom Lintern.
Speaking of an independent company bringing the goods, Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime Triggerman #1 comes out.
After-Shock Comics debuts Shipwreck #1 from writer Warren Ellis and artist Phil Hester. This has winner winner chicken dinner all over it. Why the Sheen reference? No idea!

Not only will Betty Boop be getting her own comic on new comic book day, but there will be at least 9 variant covers coming along with it. Does Dynamite Entertainment know something we don’t know? Betty Boop #1 has the appeal for a younger female audience, why do we need 9 variants again? Is that demo that large that they need to appeal to a young girl wanting to buy all 9+ covers? Just asking? No hate what’s so ever here at all! Just asking…..Oh and we didn’t even talk about the 5 variant covers (including a blank!) for Homies #1. No really, we didn’t make that up. Homies #1; coming to a comic shop near you on 10/5. If those two releases coming from Dynamite do not tickle your fancy, maybe the debut of an original Kung-Fu character/series Intertwined #1 will get your attention. Brought to you by writer Fabrice Sapolsky and artist Fred Pham Chuong.

Rounding out the week, Death Of Hawkman #1 (DC Comics), writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aaron Lopresti and Disney Kingdoms Enchanted Tiki Room #1 (Marvel).

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 2)

 THE COMIC BROKER’S REPORT – September 2014 pt. 2

Reaction to this month’s article has been about as hot as my sister skinny dipping with a recently diagnosed thyroid problem.  To make up for that I have decided to add some extra selections for this month.  An update would have sufficed but it ballooned with a bunch of new pics and since become a part 2.  Some of these may have already been spotlighted by others on the web and if that it true then those author’s are by far much better than me and should receive emails from any reader telling them so!  Enjoy your Labor day weekend folks!

The Flash: Iron Heights

Girder is an obscure DC villain who first appeared in The Flash: Iron Heights, an excellent prestige format book by industry greats Johns and Ethan Van Sciver.  The character has been cast to appear in the upcoming Flash TV show.

Flashpoint 1 2011

Farooq/Blackout is an even more obscure character than Girder.  Though he appears first in the well printed/underwhelming Flashpoint 1 (also by Johns ) the issue is rare depending on which version you seek out.

Jarvis will be cast for the Agent Carter show.  The famous butler to heroes first appeared in this classic series from Marvel.

Doctor Who Weekly 17 ( First appearance of Abslom  Daak )

Fan favorite and Dalek Killer, Abslom Daak could finally be appearing on screen.  His first appearance is really going to be tough to find in high grade though.

The Avengers 167 ( First appearance of Carina )

22628_20060115204329_large

In the comics she’s The Collector’s daughter but if you’ve see the GOTG film then you know that she’s not to happy with her position.  It’s great little role by an unknown.

The Flash 245 ( First appearance of the Floronic Man )

Del Toro’s Justice League Dark is going to feature many of DC’s best characters who deal in magic and mysticism.  The legendary director  has expressed a desire to include The Floronic Man.  This is his first appearance.

Note:  The Floronic man appears in The Atom 1 but he does not become the Floronic Man until this Flash issue.

Secret Six 7 ( first appearance of Komodo )

163826_20090305060803_large

Arrow is looking to feature a ton of DC characters in the upcoming season including Komodo!

The Flash Volume 2 Issue 28  ( First Linda Park )

1076829

Green Arrow 17 variant ( First Komodo DC new 52 )

This variant is going to be the one to collectors will want.  It also features Jeff Lemire’s writing debut for Arrow and that’s enough to make this reader buy!   Simon Lacroix is an expert archer in his own right and may turn out to be one of the more exciting TV characters if he is adapted well from the source material.

The Eternals 7 ( First appearance Eson the Searcher )

One of the more obscure appearances ( and my personal favorite! ) from the GOTG film!

index

Hulk vs. Iron Man 2  ( First Extremis Hulk )

first extremis hulk

Captain Atom ( First General Wade Eiling )

The General is rumored to play a significant role on Arrow!  This one may not see much in the way of market gains based on a higher print run but for fans of Arrow it’s a must own and can probably be found in a dollar bin.

first general wade eiling

Peter Parker, Spider-Ham 12 ( First Galactypus )

pps 12 first galactypus

If you haven’t been reading Ultimate FF then you need to start right after you finish reading this.

Superman Day of Doom 1 of 4

superman-day-of-doom-1

Man I sure hate mini -series and not because of the format.  For some reason collector’s frown upon them especially modern  buyers and sellers.  In this cases fans of the upcoming Gotham show and the Gotham Central comic should want this one.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

indexMarvel_Feature_1_(1971)Before heading right into this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, there are a few comics that have been highlighted over the past week or so on InvestComics that need some love. Well not love so much, but some undivided attention. I’d like to point them out in this article so that speculators can plan accordingly during a slower week like this one.

News from director Zack Synder confirmed that Nightwing (aka Dick Grayson) will in fact appear in the new Superman sequel yet unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman. Great news for the comic book fans, but not so much on the collectors/speculators side. How so you may ask? Well, Dick Grayson becomes Nightwing in Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) and the problem with this classic comic is the one thing no hobby enthusiasts likes to hear……overprint. This comic is so easily accessible it’s not even funny. While the overprint shouldn’t deter you to still own this comic (how do you not own it already??), do realize that the aftermarket will be inundated with the first appearance of Nightwing as it already is. Great comic, too bad there are too many copies are floating around. There is however a way to get a little more bang for your buck, but you should know how to do this already…..

InvestComics reported on Marvel teaming up with Netflix for their next venture onto the small screen. It involves Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage getting television shows and all leading up to a “Defenders” mini-series. How lucky can a comic book fan be these days?! A comic that must be in your collection and is a beauty is the first appearance of the Defenders team in Marvel Feature #1 (1971). There is nothing more to say……..buy this comic book!

With the recent success of the Arrow television show for the folks over at the CW station, they are once again looking at the DC catalog and have found iZombie. Zombies are hot for reasons that are obvious, but will it equate to the demise, the watering down of the genre? We’ll have izombiePreacher_1to wait and see. Until then, you already missed out by digging in the $1 bins at your local shop for the first DC/Vertigo iZombie #1 (2010) when InvestComics broke the news, so now the question is how much of a risk are you willing to take on this comic? You have two options here. Go for the first appearance of iZombie in House of Mystery Halloween Annual #1 (2009) which has sold for more than $50 on Ebay or the iZombie #1 comic that has sold for as high as $25. Big risk here because this series is no Walking Dead and the zombie genre will eventually settle down some. What if the television series craps out? Too many risk factors with this one here.

And possibly the best news to come out from television land came late last night on InvestComics. The once very hot Preacher series from DC/Vertigo will be considered for a pilot from AMC. A Preacher #1 (1995) CGC 9.8 sold yesterday on Ebay for $185. If you have this comic, I urge you to get it graded and sit on it. It’s going to be a big book. The comic series was a rousing success and there is no reason to think that the (possible) television series wouldn’t be either. Writer Garth Ennis brings his “A” game to everything he’s involved with. The highly successful Preacher series is evidence of this. IF the Preacher gets its own TV show, Preacher #1 will be a comic to own, big time.

In the “In case you missed it department”

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!! The comic is pictured here and can be yours if you share the InvestComics web page everyplace you can to help us reach 3000 Likes on the Facebook page. FULL details right HERE!! Share!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/30/13

[scrollGallery id=320]

Believe it or not A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #14 will lead the way this week. It’s with good reason of course. The issue finds Max Bemis conducting writing duties. Why and who is Max? Well he’s a comic book fan and is also the front man in a rock band called Say Anything. He’s also the co-singer in a band called Two Tongues. I have to admit, I have absolutely no idea who the bands are or who Max is, but the kids tell me they know him and them! So why exactly are we talking about this comic again? Oh yeah, this is Max’s first published comic book work. The last time a rock dude crossed over, all hell broke loose for a little bit. Let me remind you……Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)? Umbrella Academy? Oh yes that! You remember now. So check out A + X #14 and see if Max pulls off a keeper here.

Harley Quinn begins her quest this week in her own regular series; starting with Harley Quinn (2013) #0. We all know by now that Harley first appeared in the Batman: Harley Quinn (1999) soft cover graphic novel. That classic Alex Ross cover is forever etched in our minds. So that comic is probably already filed away in your Bat box someplace. This week however, the Harley Quinn #0 Stephane Roux variant cover is sold out. Buying this comic will set you back $30, but how long can Harley really hold her own though? Maybe we’ll get an answer to that question sooner rather than later.

Battlestar Galactica always seems to be that red-headed step child doesn’t it? (No offense to red-heads! My sister is a red-head!). It’s always been that show that just can’t seem to get out of its own way. The first television series back in 1978 lasted two seasons, the second series lasted a whopping 4 seasons, and the original Marvel Comics series lasted 23 issues. No major motion picture, no talks of ever taking Battlestar to another level. Very odd no? Well maybe not. Maybe it’s just not a strong franchise. Yes, maybe it’s time to accept that Battlestar is not Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Stargate; Space 1999 maybe, but not any of the aforementioned. The intention here is not to bash Battlestar, but to find an understanding as to why so many failed attempts at a space series that has such a huge following. Dynamite hasn’t given up on BG though! This week Battlestar Galactica Starbuck (2013 Dynamite) #1 is on the cusp of a sell-out. That’s right fans, there is still a core audience that demands BG and Dynamite is here to provide it! Looks like a fun read!

Forever Evil Rogues Rebellion (2013) #2 variant is sold out. It’s only a $10 variant and it’ll probably stay put right there. There is nothing special about this comic at all except an exceptionally weak villain in Parasite wreaking havoc. A fun story, but nothing for the speculator here.

Although Superior Spider-Man (2012) Annual #1 might be sold out by the next new comic book day, it still has that “Annual” stigma attached to it. The Marvel solict  says “this one counts!” Even they realize the stigma attached. It’s far and few between that any comic book annuals make an impact on the hobby. They do exist, but not on a level of any expectations that collectors clamor for. In the Superior Spider-Man annual #1 though, we see the return of Blackout. The Blackout villain first appeared in Nova #19 (1978). Will the debut of Blackout be a draw? Most likely no, but the Nova character on the other hand………buy Nova. Yes, buy Nova.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #7 brings back an old foe. Lady Deathstrike from Daredevil #197 (1983). That’s a nice book to have. Not a be all end all, but an okay book.

If you have children then you know about Ben 10. You know that Ben 10 is on your television set when you are getting the kids ready for school. Yes I get the explanation every morning on which alien Ben has turned into and what he can do. Fun times! IDW wants my boy to read comics too, which is a great thing. Check out Ben 10 (2013 IDW) #1 this week for your kids. Get them reading! DC Comics were the first to jump into the Ben 10 craze and now IDW is doing the same. Good times!

A few weeks back InvestComics asked that you’d get a beat on the Afterlife with Archie #1 comic. Boy did we hit that one! This week the initial offering of Afterlife With Archie (2013) #2 will be a bit different. It seems as though the zombiefied Archie interest has died down a tad quickly, but do not let this deter you from getting the second issue. There is still might be “life” in this zombie Archie.

If there is THE number one comic to get this week, it has to be Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #1. Check out why our girl Zoey hasn’t killed anyone in about 72 days. She’s a radio DJ too. Not much to go on right? Well it’s an Image Comic, they release great stories AND it’s sold out already.

Cataclysm Ultimates (2013) #1 $20 variant is sold out. Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Force War (2013) #1 will be one to check out and one more for the kids Scooby-Doo Team Up (2013 DC) #1!

Don’t forget, help us get to 3000 and you could win!!

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!!

Comic Broker Report – November 2013

Speculation runs rampant this week!  In today’s comic collecting world the TV/Film adaptation is king. If it’s rumored to be optioned or developed the online market can heat up quick ( see Alias #1 on Ebay ).

Iron Man 17 ( 1:100 Sketch Variant )

index

The reaction to Iron Man’s tweaked origin has been met with mixed reviews. Either way this book should prove to be key down the road especially if Marvel brings back a particular Iron Man from the near future.

The Avenger Magazine 1-24  Shadow Comics 2

The_Avenger_Coverindex

The CW looks to option everything they can. This long forgotten Pulp hero has some interesting powers and could make for an intriguing show.  Issues of the original series and appearances from Shadow Comics are very rare in any condition.

Batman Noel

index

Lee Bermejo’s over-sized GN is a good read and worth a look for any Batman fan. As rumors continue to pile up concerning the upcoming Superman Batman film collector’s are already starting to scramble for key comics. If you are wondering what Affleck’s Batman is going to look like this design is currently the frontrunner.

New Avengers 10 & Infinity 4 1:150 Variant

Infinity_4_CoverVariantStegmannew avengers 10 first thane

Thanos has a son and that means a first appearance that’s likely worth tracking down. Like Kamal Khan we won’t know for some time if he will spark the  interest of collectors but it’s a good bet. These days most things Thanos related are doing well ( See Avengers 157! )

Uber 1/2 ( Bleeding Cool Magazine )

BCM8-600x910

As much as I dislike this series one cannot deny it’s popularity amongst collectors. In the tradition of Wizard Magazine this 1/2 issue should appeal to many. Only available in the print publication of BC it’s going to be hard to come by.

Infinity Inc 20,21 ( Hourman 2 )

As stated above comic studio options are the flavor of the month but Hourman? Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy when almost any comic makes the leap to the screen but there are definitely more deserving characters. The other question is which Hourman will they use? The first appearance of the original Hourman is pricey but if they use his son these will rise fast.

Clint 8

mv6Ct_aUlBx-dJB1GYnNFfw

Last month I mentioned Who is Jake Ellis? and it’s impending adaptation.  The regular series issues will be tough to find so go and buy this over-sized reprint of the same title. It’s rare only available in this size here and a highly enjoyable read that features other impressive comics from Mark Millar!

Tales of the Teen Titans 44

index

Here’s a George Perez classic that’s already hot on the back issue market! Featuring the first appearance of Dick Grayson as Nightwing, this comics is sure to remain a highly sought after  issue for years to come. Like Batman Noel, if rumor’s of Nightwing’s inclusion in the next film are true this one will become the hottest comic in some time.

Green Lantern 21 Sketch variant ( first Relic )

index

When someone like Geoff Johns leaves a title like GL there is sure to be some fall off in readership but if you have been missing the latest event you should be ashamed of yourself. Relic and his quest to extinguish lantern light has been a fresh and original read, something hard to come by from DC these days. (excluding Batman and anything by Jeff Lemire)

Alias 1, Amazing Spider-Man 4, Amazing Spider-Man 601

Alias_Vol_1_1 background

Technically Alias 1 is the first appearance of Jessica Jones until Marvel retconned her via flashback in AMS 601 making her first appearance in AMS vol. 1 issue 4.

With a Netfix series on the way look for her appearances to increase in value.

House of Mystery Annual 1 ( 2009 )

house-of-mystery-annual-review

Mike Allred’s izombie has also been optioned for TV. This one might just be the sleeper of the month! It’s hard to come by and filled with great stories from other outstanding creators.

UPDATE:

Incredible Hulk 178 ( first appearance of the infinity gems )

2849141-hulk178

Here’s a rumor that actually may prove to be right.  Thanks Benicio Del Toro!

 

Sleeper

So Ben Affleck isn’t just the Caped Crusader, he’s also getting into the adaptation of wonderful espionage comics!  Sleeper is one of Brubaker’s best.  Look for these to blow up soon:

Point Blank 3: First Carver

Sleeper 1
