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: Secret Wars #1 9.8 (2015). Here is a neat modern graded under a hundred bucks. This high grade modern has three signatures on it, two of which are creators of Deadpool. The sigs; Rob Liefeld, Fabian Nicieza and Johnathan Hickman. All that for $99? Not too shabby.

Regular readers of the weekly InvestComics Hot Picks know how we pinned the title Deadpool And The Mercs For Money down and predicted the outcome of all the players in the previous series getting their own solo comics. Well, not only is Now Foolkiller #1 coming out this week, but Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #5 features the newest team, lead by Domino, getting their act together from the previous issue. We discussed some of the first appearances of Domino’s new team HERE. The old team’s first appearance’s were discussed HERE.
Foolkiller; Greg Salinger, first appeared in Omega The Unknown #8 (1977). Cover by legend Gil Kane. The Now Foolkiller #1 will be accompanied by many variants. The Rob Liefeld B&W Deadpool variant will garner much attention in the aftermarket.

Marvel begins their newest Avengers title(s) this week; Now Avengers #1 (written by Mark Waid) and Now Occupy Avengers #1. Not crazy about the ‘Now’ in the title in front of the Avengers, but it’s still better than a ‘Totally Awesome Hulk’ title. So many variants to choose from, but it’s the inside of the Now Avengers #1 comic you may want to check out too. Someone dies and you have a chance to find out who first……by getting to your comic shop earlier than everyone else. The Alex Ross Now Avengers #1 variant is a beauty.

If you think Marvel will keep away Wolverine or Thor or countless other original characters away from the fray, you’d be sadly mistaken. Now Unworthy Thor #1 begins the comeback(s) of Marvel’s original elite. Writer Jason Aaron and artist Oliver Coipel on Thor’s (possible) return.

On the topic of covers, Michael Choi Champions #2 white cover is an eye catcher. Death of X #3 cover from Aaron Kuder is amazing. Elektra on the cover of Spider-Man 2099 #17; by Francesco Mattina.

InvestComics has been saying it for years, even before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon. A Moon Knight movie! Right?? It’s right there on the cover of Moon Knight #8. No? Okay, we’re reaching, but maybe Marvel planted a seed here for the fans? Wishful thinking, but in the mean time, stock up from our Moon Knight checklist.

Superman #10 will be the comic everyone is talking about this week. The kids of Supes and Bats meet up for the first time. Boy of Steel and Boy Wonder, along with their daddy’s will make for an interesting read. The regular Patrick Gleason & Mick Gray cover is not only fantastic, but it tells the readers what we may be in for. The variant Andrew Robinson cover is very reminiscent of a now iconic Jim Lee Batman cover back in 2003; Batman #612. Looks as though Andrew gives us another angle of the choke hold. We love this cover.

DC Comics Bombshells #19 marks the return of the Batgirls. This team first appeared together in DC Comics Bombshells #7.
Batman #10 continues the ‘I am suicide’ story line. The story that has Batman putting together his own Suicide Squad team. Part two here.
Writer Meredith Finch and artist Shane Davis bring us Catwoman Election Night #1.

AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1 First Look

 One of These Heroes Will Become a Villain! Your First Look at AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1!

This March, ask yourself the question: If you were a teen superhuman and all the adult heroes failed you when you were kidnapped and tortured, would you switch sides and break bad? Marvel is pleased to present your first look at AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1 from Harvey Award winning writer Dennis Hopeless and critically acclaimed artist Kev Walker!

Damaged, broken, and forever changed by their experiences in Murder World, five conflicted young superhumans are out to prove to the world they can still be heroes. Now, Bloodstone, Hazmat, Deathlocket, Cammi, Anachronism, Chase, and Nico are going rogue and heading deep undercover with the Masters of Evil. And they’re going to take them down from the inside!

But the longer these teens spend undercover, the deeper they descend into darkness. And the line between good and evil blurs. Before it’s all over – a new super villain will be born!

“In many super hero comics, the series jumps from adventure to adventure, never taking the time to dig deep and explore how a traumatic event would truly effect the protagonists. AVENGERS UNDERCOVER turns that situation on its head by using this trauma as the starting point, “ says editor Bill Rosemann. “What happens after your teachers abandon you? Where do you go when you no longer fit in with your old life? When the world has rendered their judgment as to what lies in your heart, how to you prove otherwise? Dennis and Kev have the answers—and to get them you’ll have to follow our heroes down a rabbit hole of pure evil.”

“There aren’t any rules this time,” says writer Dennis Hopeless in an interview with Marvel.com. “The game is over and the kids who have survived have to go back to real life. AVENGERS UNDERCOVER is the story of what that feels like. We explore the PTSD of the thing.”

“What sorts of life decisions do these kids make once they realize that they don’t really fit into their old lives anymore?” continued Hopeless. “Can they get any of it back? If so, how? And if not, what’s next?”

Their time in Murder World prepared them for death. But nothing can prepare them for their new lives among the Masters of Evil. The longer they stay undercover, their path’s become more clear: Join up with the Masters of Evil for real, or be discovered and killed! If you thought Murder World was dangerous, you haven’t seen anything yet – and it all starts this March in AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1!

MOON KNIGHT #1 Brings ‘Weird Crime’ to All-New Marvel NOW!

This March, illuminate the dark corners of the Marvel Universe with MOON KNIGHT #1 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Warren Ellis and red-hot artist Declan Shalvey! Moon Knight #1 will continue the exciting wave of All-New Marvel NOW! series with a fresh and sensational take on Marc Spector and his vigilante alter ego Moon Knight!

“The touchtone for this book, for me, has been ‘Weird Crime.’ Both ground-level action and high strangeness,” says Ellis in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is a take on Moon Knight that unifies all the previous takes, making the character whole and taking him forward into a new kind of crime fiction.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have this book out in front of readers. Moon Knight is one the most fascinating characters in the Marvel library and the depths that Warren, Declan and colorist Jordie Bellaire are taking him to will guarantee this book fits perfectly alongside acclaimed books like Daredevil, Hawkeye and Black Widow,” says Editor Stephen Wacker.  “This is the comic you had no idea you were waiting your entire life for.”

As a mercenary turned super hero, Marc Spector has faced down everything from werewolves, super villains to his own fractured psyche. Fearsome foes and gruesome threats permeate the darkest corners of New York City. Is Moon Knight ready for NYC? Better yet, is NYC ready for him?

Don’t miss one moment of the action when Ellis & Shalvey kick off the newest noir/horror thriller this March in the highly anticipated MOON KNIGHT #1!

Your First Look at WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1

Back in Session! Your First Look at WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1!

 

This March, the smash-hit series begins a new semester in WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 – from critically acclaimed creators Jason Latour (Winter Soldier) and Mahmud Asrar (X-Men, Indestructible Hulk)!

 

Summer School is in session as world-famous mutants Wolverine, Storm, and more must educate and train the Marvel Universe’s next generation of X-Men! All-powerful inexperience mutants with the power to level cities. What could go wrong? Plus with Fantomex and Quentin Quire joining the staff – the Jean Grey School is in for a wild ride!

 

But with X-Men’s own lives riddled with deadly enemies and personal crises, how can they hope guide the next generation, when they can barely defend them! A new enemy lurks in the shadows, ready to strike at the heart of the Jean Grey School. And this new organization will test the faculty and students of the JGS like never before!

 

“Schools back for summer, and Wolverine, Storm and Quentin Quire are here to guide the next generation of mutant heroes,” says Editor Tom Brennan. “When the time came to find out who’d take the Wolverine & The X-Men story to its next chapter, Jason Latour was pretty much the only choice for someone who could continue this book’s legacy while charting new destinations.  Mahmud Asrar is the perfect partner for Jason, expanding on the world of the Jean Grey school and the lives and dangers of its students with breathtaking drama and scale.”

 

If you thought the inaugural year of the Jean Grey School was crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet! The X-Men of tomorrow have faced dangers unlike any other, but they’re not ready for what comes next. Get ready for the start of the bombastic new series when WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 hits stands this March!

First Look at MAGNETO #1

Protecting Mutants by Any Means Necessary – Your First Look at MAGNETO #1!

  He was once the deadliest and most feared mutant on the planet…and he will be again! Starting this March, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta weave a new noir/horror thriller featuring Erik Lehnsherr – known the world over as MAGNETO!                                                              “I think Magneto is definitely an anti-hero,” says series writer Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s fighting for the right thing, but his methods are far too extreme. He’s not above breaking the law, stretching the limits of what is moral and putting evil to work for good.”   But Magneto is not the man he once was. And the world is a different, more dangerous place for mutants. Once a member of Cyclops’ team of renegade X-Men, it’s time for him to strike out and defend mutantkind on his own terms. It’s time to wage a new kind of war. One that will not only ensure mutant survival, but restore the Master of Magnetism to his former glory! He’s not afraid to get his hands bloody to do it…and he’ll prove once and for all why you should tremble at the sound of his name.   The one-man-war for mutantkind starts this March in MAGNETO #1!   MAGNETO #1 (JAN140675) Written by CULLEN BUNN Art by GABRIEL HERNANDEZ WALTA Cover by PAOLO RIVERA Variant Covers by JOHN CASSADAY (JAN140676) MIKE DEL MUNDO (JAN140677) & SKOTTIE YOUNG (JAN140678) FOC –02/10/14 On-Sale -03/05/14

New Faces. New Threats – Your First Look at NEW WARRIORS #1!

Aw yeah! The triumphant return of THE NEW WARRIORS, featuring Speedball, Justice, Nova,  Scarlet Spider written by Christopher Yost and drawn by Marcus To!!?? What’s not to love?

 

Witness the next generation of the Marvel Universe this February in NEW WARRIORS #1 – an all-new action packed ongoing series from blockbuster writer Christopher Yost and red-hot artist Marcus To! New Warriors mainstays Speedball and Justice are getting the band back together with a new team of heroes the likes of which you’ve never seen before!

 

“They’re eight people from different corners of the Marvel Universe, coming together to do the right thing, to be heroes,” says writer Christopher Yost, in an interview with Marvel.com. “They’re not kids, they’re not seasoned heroes for the most part, but they’re idealists. Sometime it’s okay to be a hero for the sake of being a hero; to be with a team because they’re your friends, because it’s fun.”

 

“Sometimes the world just needs saving,” continued Yost.

 

Evolution has gone off the rails. There are super humans, mutants, Inhumans, clones, aliens, and more everywhere you turn. Humanity no longer exists as the dominant life form on the planet. And not everyone is pleased! The High Evolutionary has raised an army to combat these “superior” beings – through complete extermination!

 

Now, Speedball, Justice, Nova, Scarlet Spider, Sun Girl, Hummingbird and more must stand together against the rising tide. Don’t miss a fresh start for the heroes of tomorrow this February in the exciting NEW WARRIORS #1!

This February – Matt Murdock’s life comes crashing down in DAREDEVIL #36 – the fearless final issue from critically acclaimed storytellers Mark Waid & Chris Samnee! After the shocking events of last issue, there’s nowhere left for Matt to run. The Man Without Fear stands alone against the villainous hate group known as Sons of the Serpent.

Legendary Writer Chris Claremont Returns for NIGHTCRAWLER #1!

This April, an X-Men legend returns. Prolific and iconic X-Men writer Chris Claremont teams with fan favorite artist Todd Nauck for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – an all-new ongoing series starring the one and only fuzzy blue elf!

 

“He’s smart, tough, creative and daring, with an instinctive understanding of people and situations. He has a wicked sense of humor and a devastating charm,” says Claremont, in an interview with Marvel.com. ”His ‘normal’ is revolutionary to most people; throw him a problem, he’ll find a way to solve it that’s unique to him. He quite simply is the kind of man others trust; to know him is to have faith in him.”

 

“Nightcrawler has been one of my all-time favorite X-Men,” says artist Todd Nauck. “He’s a fun, cool character and he’s easy to care about. He’s a guy you root for.”

When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind, a hole was left in the X-Men’s ranks that has never been filled. Now, with his recent resurrection in the pages of Amazing X-Men, the world Kurt Wagner left behind has changed. Charles Xavier is dead. Scott Summers leads the mutant revolution as a fugitive. Wolverine guides the mutants of tomorrow at the Jean Grey School for higher learning. Deep schisms divide the X-Men, and his closest friends now find themselves bitter enemies.

 

Where will he go? What will he do? Don’t miss the start of a brand new adventure as Nightcrawler and Chris Claremont make their triumphant return to the X-Men fold for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – bamfing its way into comic shops this April!

Smash Into Your First Look at the All-New SHE-HULK #1!

Lawyer. Avenger. Hero. Friend. Jennifer Walters has been called many things – but to most, she’s known only as the She-Hulk! Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at SHE-HULK #1 – the all-new ongoing series written by rising star Charles Soule and drawn by fan-favorite artist Javier Pulido!  Savior of the world on more than one occasion, Jennifer Walters is embarking on a brand new, and no less dangerous mission – opening a new law practice!

“One of the big themes I’m going to play with is how in the world Jennifer is supposed to do everything she’s supposed to do,” said Charles Soule, in an interview with Marvel.com. “We don’t want things to be easy for our heroes—we want to see them overcome great difficulties. She-Hulk will battle one of the greatest villains of all: scheduling.”

“But She-Hulk will fight her share of giant robots and irradiated monsters, I promise,” he continued.

“Charles gets the humanity of this character – this book doesn’t just have superhero action, it has an emotional core that makes that action all the more meaningful,” says Associate Editor Tom Brennan. “And with Javier Pulido, we have a master storyteller who brings so much to the story and gives this series a texture and a pop of energy that defines All New Marvel NOW!”

But juggling her caseload and kicking bad guy butt might be a bit more complicated than she imagines. Not to mention the growing number of supervillains she’s making personal enemies of. Sure she can knock The Thing out in one punch, but this time she may have bit off more than she can chew! And that’s just the start of it. Don’t miss a new beginning for the jade champion of justice when SHE-HULK #1 smashes into comic shops this February!

PETER PARKER RETURNS IN AN ALL-NEW AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1

 

With Great Responsibility Comes Great…Resurrection

New York, NY (January 13th, 2014) – Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce the triumphant return of Peter Parker as everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man this April in an all-new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1. In 2012, the comic book world was shocked to find that Doctor Otto Octavius, aka Doctor Octopus, had switched bodies with Peter Parker and, in the process, left Peter Parker to die in Octavius’ cancer-ridden shell. Since then, Octavius has been fighting crime by his own dark methods in the pages of The Superior Spider-Man.

Teased throughout the entire run of The Superior Spider-Man, written by Dan Slott (The Mighty Avengers, She-Hulk), Peter’s presence never quite left his body and is now set to regain control and show the world who Spider-Man is – and no one could be more excited than Dan Slott himself. “I’ve been a Spider-Man fan since I was eight years old. Of COURSE I want to see Peter back! He is the one, true Spider-Man,” says Slott.

With Peter Parker swinging back into action in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1, Slott, including fan-favorite artist Humberto Ramos (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Pete Parker: Spider-Man), are returning readers to intense and highly kinetic web-slinging action. Senior Editor, Stephen Wacker says, “The entire creative team is incredibly excited to bring readers the next stage in Spider-Man’s life. And I can promise you that the plans for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, over the next year, will be the biggest Spidey epic yet!”

However, the question on everyone’s mind has not been the “when”, but the “how” Peter Parker returns from the dead and Slott is quick to tease just that. “In a strange and terrifying way. And… possibly… at a very great cost. Remember, nothing is ever easy for Peter Parker. It’s one of the reasons he’s a true hero,” says Slott.

Marvel To Launch ALL-New MOON KNIGHT Series Written by Warren Ellis

New York, NY (Nov. 22, 2013)  — This coming March, Marvel Comics will illuminate the dark recesses of the Marvel Universe as it launches a new monthly Moon Knight series by award-winning and critically acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (Iron Man: ExtremisAstonishing X-Men) and the outstanding artistic team of Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire (Venom; Deadpool). Moon Knightwill continue the Company’s popular All-New Marvel NOW! initiative with an all-new #1 that will be sure to redefine the mysterious vigilante and solidify him as one of Marvel’s most extraordinary heroes.

This gritty and bold era of Moon Knight’s history is orchestrated by Warren Ellis, who promises to introduce readers to the dark corners and unspoken fears of the Marvel Universe.

“The touchstone for this book, for me, has been ‘Weird Crime’.  Both ground-level action and high strangeness,” says Warren Ellis, in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is a take on Moon Knight that unifies all the previous takes, making the character whole and taking him forward into a new kind of crime fiction.”

“Moon Knight is one of Marvel’s most underrated characters we have and with ‘MK’ back in New York City, the book is going to be a reflection of its environment: filled with darkness, secrets and super heroes,” says Series Editor, Stephen Wacker.

Every FIRST ISSUE bearing the All New Marvel NOW! branding includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices.

Once again, the biggest creators bring you the biggest characters in the biggest stories…and it’s happening NOW!

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during Early JULY 2013

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during EARLY JULY 2013 – list by Terry Hoknes of HoknesComics.com

HotComics2013JulyEarlyLogo

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.     I did not focus on variants specifically as I can’t even keep track of them all.    If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know.  Sales were at a very weak point during late May and all of June but July sales have already started to pick up on many titles.    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.

#1 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 all 4 issues are very low.   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 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 but they cancelled at the last minute likely to help boost sales of the upcoming graphic novel.

Last of Us American Dreams, 1, $3.99, Dark Horse, 6,012

Last of Us American Dreams, 2, $3.99, Dark Horse, 4,991
Last of Us American Dreams, 3, $3.99, Dark Horse, 5,014
#2 TODD THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH (Image) #1 hit high of $20 immediately in January week of release and then settled down.    Smaller print run.  Mini-series #1-4 is sold out and will become ongoing soon from Image with #5 coming out in a month.  News of a new tv/movie reported on July 13th made the #1 a super hot comic instantly with sales as high as $40.00 each and sets hitting record highs.       #1 and #2 have a 2nd print which are both rarer typically in print run than the originals.
197, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, 1, $2.99, Image, 7,879
240, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, 2, $2.99, Image, 6,177

230, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, 4, $2.99, Image, 7,113
#3 INJUSTICE GODS AMONG US (DC) – the hottest DC title of 2013 with small print runs and 3rd prints selling out.  Peaked in May at $85.00 for set of #1-4      Many sellers with reprint sets that also sell well.   #1 2nd printing hit $12.00   #1 $40 #2 $25 #3 $8 #4 $5 #5-6 $4.   I predicted this could be a hit when I saw the initial print run numbers so low and yet featuring major characters Batman,  Joker, Superman, Wonder Woman etc.
 96, Injustice Gods Among Us, 1, $3.99, DC, 20,733
120, Injustice Gods Among Us, 2, $3.99, DC, 17,068

83, Injustice Gods Among Us, 6, $3.99, DC, 26,011.
#4 PETER PANZERFAUST (Image) #1-9 prices peaked in March.  #8 and #9 really hot but less demand for #4-6.  One season of the TV series seems guaranteed.   #1 hit high of $300 now around $200.00   Current prices #2 $60 / #3 $20 / #4-7 $10 each / #8 $20 / #9 $20.  Print runs for #6 7 8 were so low they did not even chart during the month.  Note the print run increaes for #10 and then #11.

#5 THE WALKING DEAD (Image) #108 1st app Ezekiel and #110 origin and battle of Ezekiel with Michonne.  All back issues #1-110 are sold out and bring above cover prices.  #92 and #93 extremely hot at  $30.00 each.   Retailers upped their orders yet again starting with #109 onwards after the sellout of #108.  This is the highest print runs have ever been (not counting #100).

#10 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

#11 THE SIXTH GUN (Oni) – All 31 issues sold out – many not even on ebay and low print runs.  Sold a #1 for $250 in Mid April.  #1 now at $90.00.   Prices have dropped by about 70% since their peak from April 2013 when the news of the potential TV show was at its highest hype.   Still some of the rarest comics to collect will keep prices and sales up on this title.  The image speculating boom peaked by April 2013 and orders were raised drastically on issues #30-32 which were the highest since issue #2 three years earlier.

Comics Best Selling First Issues 2013

The following massive chart is to be a basic index to all the new comic series that debut each month.  Its a quick look at the most ordered and best selling #1 issues of every single month plus a great reference to look back at and see what comics are likely to be future hot books.  As we all know the industry has always invested the most in #1 first issues  So now you have a list of all of them at your fingertips showing their print runs.  This list also includes one-shots, Annual #1’s and #0’s as well.

The first column is the comics rank for the month for #1 issues.  The second column is its overall rank for all comics that month.

Note so far this year Marvel has had the #1 – #1 issue of the month 4 out of 5 times.

Jupiters Legacy and Walking Dead:  Governors Special are the only #1 issues non-DC/Marvel to sell over 50,000 copies.

Only 11 #1 issues so far this year had sales of over 100,000 copies.

MARVEL reveals ARTHUR ADAMS variant for INFINITY #1

Nothing Lasts Forever – Marvel Unveils Arthur Adam’s INFINITY #1 Variant Cover

This August, the Marvel Universe prepares for the biggest battle it’s ever faced – but first, Marvel is proud to unveil the jaw dropping variant cover toInfinity #1 by Arthur Adams! Infinity, the six part blockbuster comic event of the summer, brought to you by the star studded creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena & Dustin Weaver, takes fans to every corner of the Marvel Universe, and beyond! Earth has been marked as an “Avengers World”, protected by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more from the deadliest threats facing humanity. A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos…because only with a united AvengersUniverse is there any chance of survival!

 

With our heroes at the other end of the universe, who is left to protect Earth? Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. The greatest threat to the Mad Titan’s work—and perhaps the universe’s greatest hope—is something he created leaving no world safe. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But can the fearsome leader of a race hated and feared by his world,  lead his people against Thanos? If they fall, so does the Earth—and the entire universe with it.

 

Every issue of Infinity includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on theMarvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue ofInfinity features special augmented reality content available exclusive through theMarvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

 

The Biggest Heroes.  The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Sacrifices. This is Marvel’sINFINITY.

Nothing Lasts Forever – The New Avengers Head Into INFINITY!

New York, NY—May 10th, 2012— This August, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman is joined by fan-favorite artist Mike Deodato to pit the Illuminati against their biggest threat yet  inNew Avengers #9! Tying into the blockbuster event of the summer, Infinity,New Avengers #9 shows fans what new threats lie beyond the edges of the Marvel Universe!

With the Avengers fending off an intergalactic threat on the edges of the Marvel Universe,Earth becomes the most vulnerable planet in the system! Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But is the combined might of the clandestine group of Avengers enough to push back Thanos and his deadly group of lieutenants – the Cull Obsidian?

“As with Avengers, Jonathan’s issues ofNew Avengers are a critical part of the overall Infinity story. There are elements that were set into place in the earliest issues of the series that he and Deo will be paying off on here.” explained Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort, Marvel Entertainment. “You could maybe enjoy INFINITY without them, but you’re really not going to want to.”

Every issue of New Avengers includes a code for a free digital copy of that same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue of New Avengers features special augmented reality content available exclusive through theMarvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

This August, the intensity ofInfinity is turned up a notch as Hickman and Deodato show the power of the Mad Titan inNew Avengers #9!

Marvel Reveals Joe Quesada’s All-New Look For ANGELA!

 

The Biggest New Heroine In Comics, Redesigned For Her Marvel Universe Debut!

New York, NY (May 9th, 2013)—She’s one of the biggest new characters to debut in the Marvel Universe in over 20 years, and today Marvel is proud to unveil your first look at ANGELA – redesigned by Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer & superstar artist Joe Quesada! Angela, created by New York Times Best Selling writer Neil Gaiman & industry icon Todd McFarlane, makes her dynamic debut into the Marvel Universe this June, in the star studded conclusion to the critically acclaimed event Age Of Ultron with Age Of Ultron #10!

“Angela is going to make her mark rather quickly. She’s going to hit the ground running and cut a large swath through the Marvel Universe – both literally and metaphorically,” explained Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment. “ We have huge plans for her, and the mystery of who she is and where she comes from is something I think Marvel fans are going to be blown away by.  Actually, I know they will!”

However, Angela isn’t the only one making her way over to the Marvel Universe as Neil Gaiman makes his long awaited return to Marvel in over six years! Starting this July, Gaiman teams with blockbuster writer Brian Michael Bendis and fan favorite artist Sara Pichelli to take the angelic bounty hunter to the outer limits of the Marvel Universe in an all new arc starting inGuardians Of The Galaxy #5! Alongside Star-Lord, Iron Man, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora & Groot – Angela must help the Guardians take down threats putting the galaxy at risk, showing why she’s one of the most feared women in the Marvel Universe!

“It’s no coincidence that Angela’s debut comes around a time when we’re reminding fans that there’s a reason we call the space our stories take place in, the Marvel Universe,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “What Neil and Brian have planned for the character in Guardians of the Galaxy is going to definitely turn some heads, and nobody can miss where it goes from there!”

The arrival of Angela to the Marvel Universe marks one of the most important moments in comics history! With a major player like the fearless warrior making her presence known – no fan can miss how her debut impacts the Marvel Universe and beyond! It all begins in the universe shattering Age Of Ultron #10 in June, and continues in the hottest new book of the year, Guardians Of the Galaxy #5!

INFINITY brings Skrulls back to forefront in MU.

 Nothing Lasts Forever – The Avengers Head Into INFINITY!

New York, NY—May 8th, 2012— This August, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman is joined by fan-favorite artist Leinil Yu to show fans what an “Avengers Universe” looks like in Avengers #18! Tying into the blockbuster event of the summer, Infinity, Avengers #18 shows fans what new threats lie beyond the edges of the Marvel Universe!

A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos…because only with a united “Avengers Universe” is there any chance of survival! But in order to do so, Captain America and the Avengers must join the Council of Worlds as they declare war on their cosmic invaders. And when the key to their success lies within the rebirth of the Skrull Empire, there’s no telling what may happen next!

“Moreso than any other tie-ins, Jonathan’s issues of Avengers and New Avengers are an integral core part of the Infinity story–absolutely essential to the reading experience,” explained Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort, Marvel Entertainment. “So these issues that Leinil is drawing are key to everything”

Spider-Man get (Zeb) Wells Soon!

Marvel sent another creator teaser, this one indicating that ZEB WELLS will be working on Spidey (apparently in the Wolverine/Spider-Man/Elektra mini-series) once again. The thing that can get internet fans to wondering is which Spidey this is, Doc Ock or Peter. The Blues seem that darker-grey/blackish (though admittedly, I’m color-blind) of Superior Spider-Man, but his fingers and toes lack the claws and ninja-toe, looking more like the Amazing Spider-Man.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 2-20-13

A couple of things to get to before we get started….

First order of business this week is the mentioning of the newest sponsor to the InvestComics family. Zap-Kapow! Zap-Kapow is an itunes comic book price guide app that gives you instant prices right in the palm of your hand whenever you need. It’s a fantastic app that should be on every collector’s phone. Zap-Kapow will also carry InvestComics on their website as a token of their commitment to InvestComics under the Comic News tab. Check out their website right HERE and also go HERE to get the app! Or go to the Zap-Kapow Icon on the top of this article and just click. InvestComics and Zap-Kapow! a perfect match!

Shaun Cobble and Shaun Sorenson are making waves with the new InvestComics Podcast Breaking the 4th Wall. Be sure to check out the show each and every week on Sunday’s. The boys have a lot of fun with it. Coming up shortly, InvestComics got a hold of Joe Harris to come on the show! That’s writer Joe Harris; Batman: Battle for the Cowl, The Fury of Firestorm, screenwriter on Darkness Falls, and much more. Look for that show coming up soon with Joe on. Fun to be had! And MORE guest announcements coming soon too. Look for them on the InvestComics Facebook page.

Now let’s get to this week’s chock full of number one issues. That’s 12 number one issues and one number zero. I can’t recall such a big week in which so many number ones have hit from different companies. Excluding the new 52 and Marvel NOW! of course.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=226]

Five of the number one issues come from IDW Publishing. IDW is simply killing it right now! In case you have been living under a rock, IDW has arrived. With the recent success of 2 titles, selling out, it’s not a surprise to see IDW go back to the well here. Star Wars #1 was a tremendous success, so IDW is giving fans Gi Joe (2013 IDW Volume 3) #1. Great move here because a restart of the Star Wars franchise is just what the collector ordered. G.I. Joe will be no different here. Look for fast sellouts and some quick jump in aftermarket pricing. G.I. Joe originally appeared in the Marvel/Hasbro launch back in 1982. The CGC market seems a bit inundated with this issue. A total of 1,296 graded copies to date. 277 which are sitting in the 9.8 range while 332 sit in the 9.6 range. This doesn’t really help your aftermarket cause. That said, pull out one of your 1982 Joe’s in your collection and pair it up with the new Joe from IDW that will sellout out, throw it up on Ebay and watch the bids come in. The sellout of Joe will probably occur with My Little Pony Micro Series (2013 IDW) #1 as well. With the successful launch of the My Little Pony comic, the new Micro series (a la TMNT) will focus on each pony. Granted this comic may not be for the average fanboy, but the aftermarket money should be! Be sure to put this comic in the middle of your stack and not on the top. Not because of embarrassment, because you don’t want to tip anyone off that you’ll be selling this on Ebay in a few days for $10 apiece. The other IDW number one issues not to be ignored this week are Vitriol The Hunter (2013 IDW) #1, Fever Ridge MacArthur Jungle War (2013 IDW) #1, and Kill Shakespeare Tide of Blood (2013 IDW) #1. IDW is rockin’ n rolling, be there or be square.

Marvel has some number one issues to offer up this week too. Alpha Big Time (2013 Marvel) #1 will be headed our way after a brief delay. Was there really a demand for this Alpha character to have his own book? Why is this happening exactly? Guess it never hurts to try something new right? Alpha first appeared a long long time ago in Amazing Spider-Man #692….um late last year. It’s probably still sitting on the new comic book shelf at your local shop. The main number one issue from the pair that are coming out will be Nova (2013 5th Series) #1. Why you ask? No really, you’re asking why? I’d spell it out for you with little dashes in-between the letters here but that will take too long. Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s it, that’s mostly what you need to know. With the debut of the Marvel Cosmo’s on the big screen, Nova would be a character to have in your collection. Nova #1 will be a quick sellout because after 5 tries of a series starring Nova, this time the interest will stay around a bit longer. Thanks in large part due to Marvel’s push of the Guardians movie. The new number one issue however is not the one collector’s should be clamoring after. The 1976 Nova #1, now this is the one you should have. You can get some VF- copies on Ebay for very affordable prices, but one should not settle for those. Look for some VF+/NM copies and grab them. Get those near mint comics graded asap. If you can pull off a 9.8, you’re probably in the money. 466 total graded copies and 70 at the 9.8 spot. Lots at the 9.6 slot. I’m telling you, get a 9.8 and hold on to this comic. It has tremendous upside.

We get introduced to a new villain this week from Marvel. Her name is Jet Black. Check out Captain America (2012 7th Series) #4 for her debut. The secret of Scorpio is revealed in Ultimates (2011 Marvel Ultimate Comics) #21. Scorpio’s first appearance is no secret to us though. Nick Fury’s sibling debuted in Nick Fury, AGENT of Shield #1 (1968) from icon Jim Steranko. Watch in the future for an originally signed Jim Steranko autograph for you to WIN from InvestComics’ video comic book review show FFFIC! Awesomeness indeed. Daredevil (2011 3rd Series) #23 begins a new storyline that claims to be a big one as well as a jumping on point. So jump! And Avengers (2012 5th Series) #6 will give us the origin of the Universe. See, Stan Lee is God.

DC comics Justice League of America (2013) #1 will debut with a variant cover, all of them with the same cover, but with a different flag for each state within the U.S. Very lame, sorry DC you dropped the ball again on this one. See the original tirade on this debacle on InvestComics Hot Picks #255, click HERE for that. In more lame news we get Justice League of Americas Vibe (2013) #1 this week. This comic falls in the same realm as Alpha #1 from Marvel. Is this comic necessary? Don’t look for much on this one, but Vibe’s first appearance is in Justice League of America Annual #2 (1984) if one feels so inclined to waste their time hunting for this. Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #17 is wowing us with a new status quo. Really? Why a new status quo? Wasn’t this what the New 52 was supposed to do in the first place? Okay, let’s buy into it, see where it goes. DC guarantee’s that Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #17 will be THE book to own in the new 52 universe. Why is this? An answer that only Grant Morrison knows and for us to find out. The DC comic to really keep an eye out on this week besides Action Comics #17 has to be Legion of Super-Heroes (2011 7th Series) #17. Paul Levitz teams back up with Keith Giffen on a Legion book. Cool stuff here fans. Back in the early 80’s Paul and Keith were tearing it up as fans were loving it. The tandem first teamed up on a Legion book back in 1982’s Legion of Super-Heroes #285. They worked together in a backup story called The Forgotten Future. Here’s a nice kicker too, Adam Kubert was the letterer on the story. How cool is that? Three legends on one story!

Todd McFarlane continues his magic and amazing marketing plan on paying homage to several comic book covers. This week he pays homage to the most famous cover of all time in Spawn (1992) #228. He does a tremendous job as always too. Thanks for the eye candy Todd! X-O Manowar (2012 3rd Series Valiant) #10 debuts the new X-O Manowar so check that out. With the recent announcement of the Sixth Gun pilot on NBC, it makes sense to grab a copy of the latest Sixth Gun installment Sixth Gun Sons of the Gun (2013 Oni) #1. We all know Sebastian Piccione from FFFIC will probably be very happy to read this comic!

Rounding out this week we have Dejah Thoris and Green Men of Mars (2013) #1 (take a look at some of the variant covers on this one! Parental Advisory!), Hellraiser Dark Watch (2013 Boom) #1, and Baltimore Widow and the Tank (2013 Dark Horse) #0.

That’s it for this week, watch for the new InvestComics’ newsletter coming soon with some very special BIG news!

Invest wisely.

The Future of Marvel NOW! Is SECRET ORIGIN!

 Normally the term “SECRET ORIGIN” is DC related, with the company having run several series and one shots with the title SECRET ORIGINS. But it looks like Marvel is giving it a go, most likely in IRON MAN’s ongoing title. Love the teaser image, though.

ONE OF THESE X-MEN IS A TRAITOR!

 ONE OF THESE X-MEN IS A TRAITOR! That’s all the information Marvel sent along with their latest teaser for Brian Michael and Bendis Brian Bachalo’s UNCANNY X-MEN #1. The idea of who is the traitor, and exactly what they are betraying, is an interesting one considering this is the rogue (no, not her) team of fugitive, renegade mutants, lead by former Phoenix wielding and Professor Xavier murdering Scott “Cyclops” Summer.  Plus, magneto rocking the all white look. What’s up with that?

The Future of Marvel NOW! Is THANOS RISING!

 The Future of Marvel NOW! Is THANOS RISING!

Superstars Jason Aaron & Simone Bianchi Tell The Story Behind The Son Of Titan!

ThanosRising_1_CoverNew York. NY—January 16th, 2013— This April, the true origin behind the most villainous force of the year is revealed inThanos Rising #1, kicking offthe all-new limited series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Jason Aaron (Thor: God Of Thunder) and artist Simone Bianchi (Wolverine)!As part ofMarvel NOW!, Thanos Rising joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Villains to deliver all-new series, great for new and veteran readers alike!

Prepare for a visceral tale of tragedy, deceit and destiny like you’ve never seen before as readers dive into the shrouded history of the most talked about villain of the Marvel Universe. Who is Thanos, and where did this demi-god of death and destruction come from? And how does this story set up one of the biggest events in Marvel history?

“The story of Thanos’ rise to power would make Shakespeare shudder,” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “The epic saga of a young boy, born in blood on a planet far, far away, who grows to become one of the most powerful and terrifying forces in the Marvel Universe, ‘Thanos Rising’ takes a cold, hard look at the eternal question: Are some people just born evil?’

Marvel NOW!is the culmination ofMarvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. WithThanos Rising, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective on the origin of Thanos.

“This is without a doubt one of the creepiest stories I’ve ever gotten to write for Marvel. It’s the origin of an outer space serial killer, the story of the universe’s weirdest romance and a grand cosmic tragedy, all wrapped up in one,” explained writer Jason Aaron. “This is me taking five issues to really dig into the head of a space-faring world conqueror, mass murderer and hopeless romantic. I love writing stories with villains as the main character, and this book is about Thanos all the way.”

Each issue ofThanos Rising includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue of Thanos Rising features special augmented reality content available exclusive through theMarvel AR app– including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 12-5-12.

Avengers (2012 5th Series) #1 from Marvel NOW! is so secret that the solicit for the issue says “Classified.” One thing we know is NOT classified is the first appearance of this team in Avengers #1 (1963), brought to you by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee of course. A graded CGC 9.4 sold for $185,000 recently. Only one grade higher than this out there and that’s a 9.6. The Avengers are a big draw/sell right now. Look for this comic to continue its upward climb with no limit in sight. 500K very soon is not that far off of the realm here folks.

Continuing with Marvel NOW! and their re-launch titles we get Thunderbolts (2012 2nd Series) #1. The original title debuted in 1997 with Busiek and Bagley at the helm. It was and still is a very popular series. The 1997 number one issue can be bought at a very affordable price these days. So much so that you may be able to find it at your local comic shop or convention in the dollar bins.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=203]

As mentioned in previous InvestComics Hot Picks, the best part of the re-launch titles is that we get to see/read about new heroes, villains, status quo, new directions and so much more. Iron Man (2012 5th Series) #3 however we get to check out the newest Stealth Armor in Tony’s repertoire. It’s so bad ass that Marvel says “it’s the most subtle Iron Man Armor of all time!” Looking forward to this!

DC Comics debuts a new number one issue into their restart world, New 52, with Human Bomb (2012 DC) #1. Human Bomb debuted in Police Comics #1 from 1941. A graded CGC 8.0 sold for $7,000 in recent months with only 1 9.4 graded copy sitting out there. Only a total of 25 of these comics have been graded to date. The issue not only features the first appearance of Human Bomb, but also Plastic Man and Phantom Lady.

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #7 figures into the equation with revelations of who the new Hawkgirl is within the new 52 Universe. Where there is girl there is man. The Brave and the Bold #34 (1961) was Hawkgirl’s debut as well as Hawkman. Both of these characters need an “Aquaman/Geoff Johns” treatment because they are simply put, lame. As cool as one may make them look at times, they never seem to catch on the right way. A 9.0 CGC Graded of this comic sold for only $3,000? Yes exactly, lame character(s) equals lower cost. There are 9 graded at the 9.0 mark with 6 more at the 9.4 mark. The TRUE mark on this book however is that the late great Joe Kubert is all over it!

Finally this week, check out Image Comics’ I Love Trouble (2012 Image) #1. Looks like fun.

More Hot Picks & Hot Chicks coming soon stay tuned! Videos from New York Comic Con 2012 are also coming as well!

See you next week, Invest wisely.

Marvel NOW! kicking into high gear with four number one issues coming your way this week. By comparison we are going to throw the original number one issue together with the new directional Marvel NOW! campaign. Just how long will the latest reboot, relaunch, reset or whatever you want to call it last this time around? We’ll see…..

We start off with a personal favorite of InvestComics’ that has graced this website numerous times. Thor #126 (1966) matches up with the new Thor God of Thunder (2012) #1 comic. Journey into Mystery with Thor #125 dropped the Journey title and became just Thor with issue number 126, so essentially Thor #126 makes for the number one issue. This comic has everything a collector could possibly want. The pencils and cover are by Jack Kirby and it’s written by Stan Lee. And reiterating it’s the true number one issue of Thor. A graded copy 9.8 sold for $13,000 and it will continue to hold its value. There is absolutely no downside here.

Uncanny X-Men #1 (1963) has climbed steadily throughout its collector career, so much so that it topped a whopping $500,000 for a graded 9.6. Investing in any key X-Men issue is almost certain to pay dividends down the line. The number one issue was done by the same tandem of Kirby and Lee. Look for this issue to continue its steady rise with a top very soon. The 9.6 just may be that, the top….for now. Look for the All New X-men (2012) #1 coming your way this week with the original team. Ah… everything old is new again.

 Although the weaker of the bunch this week goes to Fantastic Four #1 (1961), the price of a graded 9.4 says otherwise. How about a cool $300,000? Not too shabby for a subpar movie run and countless storyline changes. But that is just the problem of why this comic comes in as the weakest of the 3 Golden Age number one comics mentioned this week. By no means though is this comic NOT a buyable comic. It’s the mere fact that it seems the Fantastic Four cannot find its place anymore. Constant roster changes, costume changes, Status quo, death of Human Torch and so forth does not bode well for the investor. Yes other comics have done this too, but they continue to stay within the mainstream with movies, cartoons, etc.  Want a big positive on this book? Once again, Kirby and Lee are the main fixtures here! So when you check out the new Fantastic Four (2012 4th Series) #1 remember that Marvel’s first family have gone through some stuff and to cut them a break. This series might be the one that finally puts them back to some relevant standing within the Marvel Universe and the collectors market (Bronze Age).

The final comic of the new Marvel NOW! line X-Men Legacy (2012 2nd Series) #1has everything in common with the Thor #126 as discussed earlier, but fails in comparison at the same time.  X-Men Legacy began with X-Men Legacy #208 from the previously titled X-Men #207. The comparisons seize there because one can buy X-Men Legacy #208 in a 50 cent bin at your local comic shop. With a David Finch cover and John Romita Jr. pencils, it does make for an attractive book. Happy hunting!

While Marvel does their thing, DC Comics is on the second leg of their tour. The big storyline with DC is the Death of the Family. With some of the storyline spilling over into other books, it’s a usual sign that ONE of these comics will be short printed and thus sought after, thus creating a price hike. Will Suicide Squad (2011 4th Series) #14 this week be THAT book? Who knows? Be sure to stay on top of your crossover books not to miss anything.

DC Comics entire New 52 line will hinge on one comic and this week you will be able to know the secret history of the New 52 just like that! That’s right, Team 7 (2012 DC) #2 will tell readers exactly where, how and maybe why the New 52 got started. Seems like a big deal right? Wouldn’t really know that because of how low key this issue is. Maybe we’ll get an aftereffect on this one. Be sure to be there at the epicenter when this hits though. Don’t worry, you won’t be hurt. If anything maybe you’ll get a real good story here that won’t mean jack in another year.

Invincible fans rejoice. Invincible (2003) #97 will deliver the origin of Zandale Randolph. This will lead up to the much anticipated 100th issue.

Big Dog Ink continues to crank out some of the industry’s best comics to date. This week will be no exception with Joan of Arc From the Ashes (2012 Big Dog Ink) #1.

And finally, in recent days new Iron Man 3 action figures were coming out and a certain character may have made the cut. Rescue. Know her? She’s Potter Potts all dressed up in some hot Iron Man armor. All anatomically correct too! Is that really necessary though? Just asking. Anyway, if the Rescue action figure is an indication that we may see her in the movie, it’s a safe bet to pick up the Iron Man (2009) #10 issue which is Rescues first appearance. This comic could probably be found in that same bin as the X-Men Legacy #208. And while we’re at it here, since the new Iron Man 3 movie is based on the Iron Man #1 comic from 2005 (Extremis storyline), don’t forget to try and get your paws on that one. It ranges from $8 – $15 on Ebay right now.

That’s it for this week, invest wisely.

The Future of UNCANNY X-MEN Is Marvel NOW!

Superstars Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Bachalo Redefine Mutantkind!

New York. NY—November 9, 2012— This February, Cyclops is back in full force in Uncanny X-Men #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo! As part of Marvel NOW!, Uncanny X-Men  joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

The true flagship book of the X-Men returns. In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are – visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists? Whatever the truth, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik are out in the world gathering up new mutants and redefining the name Uncanny X-Men.

“What Brian and Chris have planned for Cyclops’ team in the post-‘Avengers VS. X-Men’ landscape is nothing short of its adjective, ‘uncanny’,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Mutantkind has been going through a reEvolution over the past couple years. The pressing question now is, who will lead them into the future?”

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Fearless Defenders, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective in the adventures of the Defenders.

Uncanny X-Men will be the one-stop shop for these very important characters in the mutant [corner of the] Marvel Universe and the Marvel Universe proper,” said writer Brian Michael Bendis in an interview with Marvel.com. “I’m very lucky that I get to write All-New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men at the same time. I can examine this fascinating part of the Marvel Universe from vastly different angles. I can’t think of a time where the mutant part of the Marvel Universe has been more exciting. Every character is so complex and there are so many characters interacting. Literally anything could happen.”

Each issue of Uncanny X-Men includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices). Additionally, each issue of Uncanny X-Men features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW! And want to make sure their voices are heard throughout this exciting time. Stay tuned for more news on how Marvel will be working directly with retailers to make sure our programs address their needs.”

An all-new direction! An all-new team! All-new threats! This is Uncanny X-Men NOW!

The Future of FEARLESS DEFENDERS Is Marvel NOW!

Superstars Cullen Bunn & Will Sliney Bring the Defenders to the Next Level!

New York. NY—November 9, 2012— This February, the Defenders come together again in Fearless Defenders #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the amazing creative team of writer Cullen Bunn (Venom, Sixth Gun, The Fearless)  and artist Will Sliney (MacGyver, Star Wars)! As part of Marvel NOW!, Fearless Defenders  joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Valkyrie trying to make amends for her mistakes—mistakes that put the entire world in jeopardy—is tasked with choosing a group of heroic women to fight by her side, not from the women of Asgard, but from the heroic women of Earth.  Circumstance will provide her with an unlikely partner in this task, as she is joined by private investigator Misty Knight. With very different points of view and very different approaches, they will both find their definitions of heroism and honor put to the test by the women they lead and the challenges they face.

“The Defenders has always been defined by a team roster that’s as unusual as the threats it faces, and we’re about to take it up several notches,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Whether, your problem is nasty Ninjas, murderous trolls or shambling zombies, there’s no one better suited to defend you that this all-new, all-female team.” 

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Fearless Defenders, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective in the adventures of the Defenders.

“Fearless Defenders will chronicle the adventures of the female heroes of the Marvel Universe. There will be a central team of characters that will form over time, but the cast will rotate to some degree from arc to arc. This will be a team like none other in Marvel NOW,” said writer Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “I think readers will have a good time speculating on who will be joining this version of the Defenders. The team up of Valkyrie and Misty Knight is probably unexpected for most people, and that’s just one of the surprises I have in store. This will be an offbeat team, and they’ll be facing some bewildering threats.”

Each issue of Fearless Defenders features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW!

The Future of AVENGERS ARENA Is Marvel NOW!

Teen Heroes Battle To The Death In New Series By Superstars Dennis Hopeless & Kev Walker!

New York. NY—September 13, 2012— This December, prepare for the deadliest game of all as Avengers Arena #1 kicks off an all-new ongoing series from rising star creators writer Dennis Hopeless (X-Men: Season One) and artist Kev Walker (Thunderbolts). As part of Marvel NOW!, Avengers Arena joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive?

“These kids were chosen carefully and with specific story beats in mind. We definitely plan on taking advantage of the broad personality spectrum we have in play,” explained Dennis Hopeless in an interview with Marvel.com. “Even the characters who die off early make their mark on the story. I didn’t throw anyone into the book as cannon fodder.”

“There is no safe base, no refuge, no cavalry to come charging over the hill. The contestants’ every moment is watched, manipulated and controlled,” elaborated Kev Walker in an interview with Marvel.com. “This is up close and personal, more intimate than any other book out there, because it’s just us and them.”

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Avengers Arena, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective on what it means to be a teen hero…and to survive!

Avengers Arena is one of the most exciting new launches in Marvel NOW!, really embracing the idea of giving fans a new look at the Marvel Universe and showing the deadly results,” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “Dennis and Kev have created a series that’s going to leave readers salivating for the next issue, with so many twists and turns that no one can predict where it’s going. They’re also introducing some all-new characters that we’re certain will become instant favorites, like the enigmatic Deathlocket and the mysterious Braddock Academy.”

“Extreme scenarios bring out the best and worst in everyone, especially when you’re a young adult still struggling to find out exactly who you truly are under your mask,” added Editor Bill Rosemann in an interview with Marvel.com. “When ordered to fight or die, which wins out, your morals or your survival instinct? How much are you willing to compromise–and how far are you willing to go–in order to live?”

Each issue of Avengers Arena features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW!

MARVEL NOW teases “Lightning”

When you hear “LIGHTNING” in terms of Marvel Comics, several people come to mind. Thor. Storm. Living Lightning. But, you also think THUNDERBOLTS, with their tag line, JUSTICE LIKE LIGHTNING.  Could that be what Marvel is teasing here? A new Thunderbolts? The old one did morph into DARK AVENGERS, and the old T-Bolts are being weened out of the title.  It has been said that Daniel Way will be doing a team book. It’s also been said that Punisher will be joining a team, and Dillon has a history with him. Plus, Day and Deadpool go ::ahem:: “way” back.  Thoughts?

Thrust into a bizarre, inhospitable world far from home, the all-new, high-adventure, mind-melting, tough-as-nails era of Captain America is NOW! With no country and no allies, what’s left for Steve Rogers to protect? The Saga of Dimension Z begins here! 

“Indiana Jones high adventure meets Lee & Kirby-flavored science fiction, as Captain America embarks on the adventure of two lifetimes,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “To survive a gauntlet of challenges so outlandish that only Rick and John could have concocted them, Cap will have to re-examine who he is and what he stands for, and confront an unexamined period in the life of a young man named Steve Rogers.” 

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Captain America, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective in the adventures of Steve Rogers. 

“This won’t be Cap getting orders and going off to serve S.H.I.E.L.D., this is going to be Steve dealing with threats he sees and at first he’s a bit reactionary,” explained Remender in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’ll be dealing with the day-to-day and doing his normal thing and when our story opens the inciting incident will change his life so dramatically that in ten issues he’ll be an entirely different person.” 

Each issue of Captain America includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. Additionally, each issue of Captain America features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost. 

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW! And want to make sure their voices are heard throughout this exciting time. Stay tuned for more news on how Marvel will be working directly with retailers to make sure our programs address their needs.” 

An all-new direction! All-new threats! All-new justice! This is Captain America NOW! 

This November, Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. redefine what it means to be a hero in Captain America #1
