With the influx of female characters making their way into the comic book medium these days, with lots of thanks to Disney (Marvel) making it so that the female character shows more of a “character side” as they have never before, we wanted to make sure to recognize some of the keys players. We completely understand that female characters have been around since the inception of comic books (no need for a history lesson, stop typing that email or Facebook post), but there is a movement happening in the past few years to the likes we have never really seen in case you haven’t realized it. Disney put a female lead in its new Star Wars movie, now the next Star Wars movie (Rouge One) will ALSO be a female lead. They know what they’re doing and their comics are following the same guidelines. So as is everyone else in the comic book industry. Much like what always happens with InvestComics and everyone following us or emulating. We’re flattered though. Like Disney.

Listed below are some new comics, some old comics and characters WE like. This will be the first installment of more Female character checklist to come. Of course we will in FACT not have some of your favorites here, but all in due time. Relax. Just breathe. Deep breaths. No emails, no Facebook post, Tweets, Instagram notes. Breathe……breathe.

Empress #1 – This “Saga” like comic from Mark Millar will be sold out in no time. Watch for this Marvel imprint from Icon to take off. One of the key components to its success will be that it has to be consistent on its release. Millar’s Nemesis, also from Icon, was a semi-success, but lost many fans because of delays. It could have been a bigger book (should have been), but delays will kill things fast. Empress + on time = success.

Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 – Almost every week InvestComics preaches the gospel about Star Wars comics from Marvel. We say to buy them because they are fantastic reads and for the possible first appearance that may explode at any time. This week we have a character from the latest Star Wars movie making their first appearance in a Star Wars comic. What more do you want here? Okay, maybe have your wife/girlfriend or maybe read it with your kid? That would be cool too.

Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 – Darkseid’s daughter, Grail, will be making her indelible mark within the DC universe this Wednesday. DC might be priming her for bigger things to come. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #418 for more info on this and about Grail’s first appearance.

Harley Quinn And The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1 – One of DC’s all time greatest artist will grace us with his presence in this book. Jim Lee will pencil and do the cover art here. What more do you need? Refer back to the new Star Wars comic if you need more answers on that.

Superman #51 – A new story line begins; Super League. Be on the lookout for possible new villains or heroes in this epic Superman crossover event. We’ll probably say “told you so!”

Showcase #75

Click To Buy Now

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: Showcase #75 (1968) 7.0. This comic represents the first appearance and origin of Hawk and Dove. Story, cover and interior art from the legendary man himself, Steve Ditko. A 7.0 grade for only $90, with FREE shipping, gets this beauty in your hands. This a must in your collection.

Look for writer Mark Millar to turn things upside down with the debut of Empress #1 from Marvel’s imprint Icon. It’s already getting billed as Marvel Comics version of “Saga”. And we all know how Saga turned out. Mark will introduce fans to a whole new sci-fi world. Hollywood LOVES Mark Millar and we wonder if Marvel Studios would ever pick this up and run with it. Who knows? It could happen. Either way, this is an introduction comic in the vein of Saga, one to watch for here! This will be big.

The new Black Panther series makes its debut this week; Black Panther Vol 6 #1. The longest running Black Panther series lasted 62 issues. Many limited series, one shots, and team-up books over the span of six volumes for the character. Will this series ever make past 62 issues? We’ll see. But the first issue here is accompanied by an abundance of variants to choose from. Pointless, and the need for 13 different covers (at last count, probably more) is a bit excessive. The creative team makes for a must get though. Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Brian Stelfreeze will bring fans back again and again.

Marvel will introduce a new Star Wars character into their library. Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 will have the first comic book appearance of Poe Dameron. Poe appeared in the latest Star Wars flick and now he makes his way into the funnies. Regular InvestComics readers know how we feel about the Star Wars comics. Buy them all! This one here is so obvious that if you miss it, shame on you! Besides Empress #1, this is the other big Marvel book this week.

This week’s Justice League Darkseid War Special #1 will focus on Darkseid’s daughter Grail. A book simmering in the back issue bins on Ebay is Justice League #40 (2015), the first appearance of Darkseid’s daughter Grail. With DC maybe headed towards a Darkseid movie appearance, who’s to say they won’t take a page out of Marvel’s film franchise and include his daughter, a’la Marvel’s Nebula (Thanos). Right now JL #40 might be a gimme at $15….the same price as some worthless variant this week. Maybe getting Justice League #40 instead of a pretty cover makes more sense. Just saying.
There are plenty of DC comic covers by John Romita Jr. to choose from this week. DC is proud to have John Romita Jr. on their side instead of those “other guys”. Some may say or think this is the first time John is playing for the other side, but fans of InvestComics know we’re going to do our research! John Romita Jr. first drew some DC characters back in 1994. Not just “any” characters, he penciled Batman, Robin, Joker, among some others from the DCU. The comic was Batman/Punisher: Deadly Knights. Art by John Romita Jr. and written by Chuck Dixon. John also contributed to the awesome cover. Great comic, great story, Romita Jr.’s first DC work.

While on topic regarding DC’s past history. Bloodlines #1 debuts with writer J.T. Krul and artist Kenneth Marion at the helm. Bloodlines was a huge crossover storyline that took almost 6 months to hammer out back in 1993, spanning from August to December. The very first Bloodlines book was Lobo Annual #1 Bloodlines Outbreak. This comic introduced the Bloodlines Parasites.

Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #7 features the first appearance of the NEW Nightwing.
It looks like Superman #51 could possibly introduce some new characters within its major new storyline crossing over all of the Superman titles; Super League Part 1 begins here. Keep an eye out on this series for new characters and villains.
Green Arrow will battle Deathstroke in Green Arrow #51. Fantastic covers from Patrick Zircher (regular cover) and John Romita Jr. (variant).

Grizzly Shark #1 from Image Comics looks interesting. Grizzly Shark first appeared in Sea Bear and Grizzly Shark #1 (2010). This Origin debut comic is written by Robert Kirkman. Ever heard of him? Art from the 2010 and 2016 Shark books; Ryan Ottley.
A new Think Tank series will start this Wednesday; Think Tank #1 (Image Comics). The original series started in 2012; Think Tank #1.

Each week InvestComics will bring readers a few comics that have been long since forgotten. There is no redeeming value what so ever, but great reading value here. And that in itself is the best value any collector could get out of comics. So take a read about some of these once hot books and not so hot books back in the day. Happy hunting!

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now

Zot #1 (1984) – This series was a popular one back in the 80’s. It’s a Scott McCloud creation. It was from Eclipse Comics, which put out some great comics. Zot lasted about 40 issues or so. The first issue is a scarce get.

Jack of Hearts #1 (1984) – One of the best D level Marvel characters ever. Back in 1984, this limited series hit with little fanfare, but was still a great read. Writer Bill Mantlo brought Jack of Hearts to a new level here. So much so (insert sarcasm here) that Jack of Hearts went on to appear about 10 more times in various comics in the next 7 years. Jack first appeared in The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #22 (Cameo). His first full appearance is in the next issue; The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #23. Here’s a cool thing here. The creator of Jack of Hearts (Bill Mantlo) teamed with the great Keith Giffen on the cameo issue, then teamed with Legend Gil Kane for the first full appearance. That’s an impressive cameo and first right? Oh Jack of Hearts where art thou?

Six From Sirius #1 (1984) – An amazingly fun four part space epic from Marvel’s imprint Epic Comics. Writen by Doug Moench and pencils by Paul Gulacy. The series did well and spawned another limited series a year later. Rumors had this coming to the big screen a few times, but who knows if that will ever happen. A great story here nonetheless.

Vigilante #1 (1983) – Boy was this a great comic back in the 80’s. With Marvel’s Punisher character gaining more popularity, DC gave fans Vigilante and it was spectacularly fun. Brought to you by the always reliable great storyteller Marv Wolman and art by Keith Pollard. Vigilante’s first appearance was in New Teen Titans Annual #2 (Adrian Chase). The series went on to last only 50 issues, but what a fantastic action packed comic book run it was. Alan Moore and Gil Kane were part of this great series. Vigilante #50 was a controversial issue because Vigilante took his own life, thus ending the series of course. A scarce series ending issue. Low print run.

The Badger #1 (1983) – Speaking of fun action packed comics, The Badger was just that. Capital Comics had a few comics that are worth looks, this was one of them. They went out of business and Badger moved on to First Comics as of issue #5. Writer Mike Baron at the helm here. A great independent title that lasted 70 issues.

Blue Devil #1 (1984) – Here is a DC rated D character that first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm #24. An engaging character that never really caught on with many, but did have a following. The series went on to last 31 issues, but Blue Devil has appeared throughout the DC Universe on a regular basis despite the non demand for him thereafter. He recently showed up in one of the InvestComics Hot Picks (#369) Justice League #40. And this book is semi-hot right not. Not because of Blue Devil.

Jemm Son of Saturn #1 (1984) – Here is the first appearance of this character in a 12 issue limited series. Jemm goes on to make brief appearances, but never takes on a leadership role. Another D level character here. An interesting limited series featuring Superman in issues 3-6. Gene Colon pencils. Jemm also appears in the recent Justice League #40.

Have you seen the new contest going on? It’s a good one. Want to WIN the Exclusive Secret Wars variant comics below? Click on the image to be rerouted to the contest details/rules. Be sure to enter and then come back here.

Secret_Wars_1_InvestComics_Contest

Three issue finales should grab some attention of readers and collectors this Wednesday. Avengers #44 and New Avengers #33 both end to make way for the epic Secret Wars heading our way. Both of these comics are still available with variants as well. Nothing sold out as of yet. Batman #40 on the other hand is sold out across the board. Regular cover and variants are sold out at Diamond. It’s the Endgame storyline finale and it’s a biggie. The Andy Kubert variant is a beauty and the Mask movie variant is quite awesome itself. About that Mask variant; If the stars aline with the galaxy and the a moon sets in Jupiter under the Capricorn astrology sign, maybe if you happen to bump into actor Jim Carey and have him sign the book for you (as a graded witness or with a witness) you would own a very awesome comic. So please no emails or social media messages “How would I get Jim Carey to sign my comic?!” Please, we’re having fun here.

While the Convergence deal is going down (more on that in a little bit), DC is building on their big Justice League event called “Darkseid War” and it begins this week in Justice League #40. This story will be epic and awesome. For many years InvestComics has informed speculators to pick up the first appearance of Darkseid. InvestComics is still bullish (buy side) on this comic. Check out a more recent article on Darkseid on InvestComics from 2013 right HERE. Some very key issues that will probably bounce once DC gets around to their announcement that Darkseid will be the main bad dude in the Justice League movie. Maybe it’ll be Doomsday. Who knows really?!

Here’s a quick speculative lesson here. Darkseid is the better buy, even if Doomsday appears in a movie and Darkseid doesn’t. Yes I said it. Here’s a few reasons why; Darkseid has withstood the test of time and has always been a bad as* as Doomsday has been reinvented and appears in an abundance of overprinted comics back 20 something years ago. Try getting some solid 9.8’s in the Darkseid article mentioned above. They are scarcer. They are simply harder to find in better shape. Most of those comics in that article are cheaper than the first appearance of Doomsday right now. Doomsday will be a passing faze folks. The books will spike, then drop once the JLA kick his butt and kill him. No more Doomsday in movies, now what? Prices drop (hey Ultron fans you paying attention here?) and no one cares about Doomsday anymore. So back to Darkseid we go. He’s the long term money maker here. Not Doomsday. Lets say Darkseid appears in the movie. Many of you are saying “wouldn’t the same happen to the Darkseid character if he appears?” The simple answer is no. DC will not kill Darkseid in a movie (you listening Thanos fans?). DC knows that character commands the respect of ever going back to that well (villain) if need be. You see how this works? They would kill Doomsday, but not Darkseid. Darkseid is a bad as*, he’s money. Doomsday will probably make some very nice cash for many speculators, but many will get stuck holding onto them too long. So Darkseid vs Doomsday…….put money for long term on Darkseid and short term on Doomsday.

Disney is still very angry at Fox for not complying with their needs/wants and will now be getting rid of another one of the Marvel Comics character(s). The X-Men have all but disappeared from the Marvel lure, Wolverine is still dead and now the Fantastic Four comic will be ending; Fantastic Four #645. Take note: don’t make the mouse angry. So how will this triple sized $5.99 issue end everything for Marvel’s first family? Only four variants at last count for one of Marvel’s most prolific runs in their history. That’s the same amount of variants for the New Avengers #33 comic this week. That’s an angry rodent.

Speaking of variants. Silk vs. Black Cat this week in Silk #3. The incentive variant cover is sold out. It’s a nice speculative pick up for when Silk breaks out.

As InvestComics reiterates almost every week now. Buy the new Star Wars comics. No matter if you collect them or not. Princess Leia #3 will be hitting the new comic book shelf this week and you run the risk of missing a first appearance that will explode in the aftermarket due to either a character that will or MAY (speculative) appear in a new Star Wars film. Maybe one of them break out into a popular cartoon, maybe somehow work their way into the Marvel universe? Any of these speculative thoughts are a possibility, so why not read a good story(s) and stay on top of things?

Daredevil #15 will bring back an old villain. We look forward to who is showing up. By the way, anyone catching that Daredevil Netfix series? Good stuff!

DC’s very popular Injustice gets an annual; Injustice Gods Among Us Year Three Annual #1. Looking forward to a good read here.

Each week InvestComics has been breaking down some of the DC Comics Convergence comics. As said a few weeks ago, speculatively speaking here of course, but DC is running a marketing campaign to see what their next move will be for years to come. Do they make 2 separate universes in their convoluted confusing universe already set in place or are they just seeing which reintroduced characters or teams they will set forth with and give them more air time. Again, all speculative speaking here. If they are indeed doing their feeler marketing campaign, here are a few comics a speculator can look for…

Convergence Infinity Inc. #1 features Infinity Inc. of course. Their first appearance came in All-Star Squadron #25 (1983). Infinity Inc. then had their own series which featured the very first artwork (for DC) by a very well known artist today. A special “Carpe Diem” shout out goes to the first person who knows who this is.

The Red Son #1 back in 2003 was a big hit. As of today, it’s still a fan favorite. Check out Convergence Action Comics #1 as it touches on the popular Red Son story from none other than Mark Millar.

Back in 1989 Gotham By Gaslight was a well received story told by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola. DC brings back that story in Convergence Shazam #1.

The Qward Universe will make its way into the Convergence Justice Society of America #1 comic. The Qward Universe first appeared in Green Lantern #2 (1960).

Convergence Plastic Man Freedom Fighters #1 will bring the Freedom Fighters front and center. Check out their first appearance in Justice League of America #107 (1973)

The story from Convergence Worlds Finest #1 will be told by Scribbly Jibbet. Scribbly’s first appearance came in The Funnies #2 (1936). Also appearing in this comic is the group The Seven Soldiers of Victory. They first appeared in Leading Comics #1 (1941) and also Showcase #1 from 2000 (Silver Age).

Convergence #4 and Convergence Blue Beetle #1, Convergence Booster Gold #1, Convergence Crime Syndicate #1, Convergence Detective Comics #1 round out DC’s Convergence week.
