She-Hulk is rumored all the time to hit the small screen. Here is a checklist that covers many first appearances and other cool books from the first appearance of the She-Hulk in 1980 to 1996.
Will we cover her appearances and some key books from 1996 and on? Of course we will (maybe), we just want you to enjoy these key books first. Too much of a good thing is never good!

The Savage She-Hulk #17 (1981) – First appearance of Man-Elephant. Yep. At least this character has about five appearances in their 35 year history. Disney needs to use this dude.

The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.

Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.

Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.

The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.

Marvel Graphic Novel #18 (1985) – John Byrne gets an entire book to draw and write on the She-Hulk. Not just any book, a Marvel graphic novel. That’s 72 oversized pages of awesome John Byrne She-Hulk.

Fantastic Four #291 (1986) – This cover pays homage to Action Comics #1. She-Hulk takes the place of Superman and holds the car above her head. This John Byrne cover is on point.

Fantastic Four #293 (1986) – Jerry Ordway provides this great cover of the She-Hulk.

Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.

Marvel Comics Presents #18 (1989) – She-Hulk story written and drawn by John Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely! 

Sensational She-Hulk #2 (1989) – First appearance of Weezi Mason.

Marvel Age #76 (1989) – As a growing trend for quite a while, Marvel or John Byrne loved putting Jennifer in a bathing suit on his covers.

Sensational She-Hulk #39 (1992) – And another awesome cover from Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back.  A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.  

Sensational She-Hulk #41 (1992) – The first time creator John Byrne appears (as himself) in the She-Hulk series.

Marc Spector: Moon Knight #41 (1992) – The first time Jennifer appears in a Moon Knight comic.

Sensational She-Hulk #50 (1993) – The 50th anniversary issue. 48 pager. John Byrne loads the book up with guest appearances from a number of Marvel characters. This issue would be the last Byrne issue as Jennifer looks for a new creative team to take over her comic series. John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.

Sensational She-Hulk #52 (1993) – This issue features an Adam Hughes cover!

Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.

Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

Strange Tales #126

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

IC 100 Club Pick: Strange Tales #126 4.0. This graded 4.0 is the first appearance of Clea and Dormammu. With the Doctor Strange movie on the horizon, and the possibility that Dormammu could be the villain, this comic at a 4.0 will be worth spending $99 on with FREE shipping. Fantastic all around buy here.

IDW captures the hearts of Micronauts fans from the 80’s this week. Check out Micronauts #1 from writer Cullen Bunn and artist David Baldeon. A bunch of unnecessary variants accompany the release, but it’s the original series artist from 1979, Michael Golden making the ultra rare $100+ variant that will capture the hearts of those old school Micro fans. A CGC graded 9.6 number one issue of the original series can be yours for only $39! That listing is right HERE. Only 3 days left for bidding. OR just get a Buy It Now for only $49.99 with FREE shipping right HERE. Some old school awesome comics that will probably make a comeback……maybe animation, movies…..who knows?
The nostalgia train doesn’t just bring the Micronauts from IDW this Wednesday, it’ll also bring Strawberry Shortcake #1. The original Marvel imprint “Star Comics” brought a 5 issue run of Strawberry Shortcake back in 1985. IDW will hit on one of these comeback books in a big way eventually. Maybe it’ll be Micronauts, or Strawberry Shortcake, or maybe neither. Maybe it’ll be a another book that will bring a character or a toy back from the doldrums of obscurity. Be ready when it happens because it will.

InvestComics gave fans a heads up on Harley Quinn #26 and that sold out. Now we will tell fans about Harley Quinn #27. It potentially could become scorching hot. DC gave fans a glimpse of a new character name Red Tool. Already being called a ripoff of Marvel’s Deadpool (probably suppose to be fanboys! It’s called satire). Now Harley Quinn #27 will be the first full appearance of Red Tool. Will this character ever materialize into some big? A bust? Who knows? But we say with confidence that this comic will be sold out by the time you get to the end of this article. Well maybe by the end of the next paragraph.

Delays have absolutely killed any momentum the Dark Knight III Master Race had. If you’re still interested in the story and its 9 variant covers anytime the comic does decide to come out, Dark Knight III Master Race #4 comes out this week. We think. Didn’t we also warn you about the speculative market on this series as well? Why yes, yes we did. 

Harley Quinn #27 is probably sold out now. Should have listened.

Batman #51 will be the last issue for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. The collaborative team have given fans quite the ride since 2011. Now it all comes down to what Scott Snyder is calling the “quiet issue”. Scott says they’ll be giving Batman the night off. It would be great to have a silent issue here wouldn’t it? Most likely not going to be the case, but Snyder and Capullo will deliver one last time, be there for the finale, it will be special we’re sure.
One of the most pleasing things about this last issue is that there is only two covers at last count. No 18 variant covers or super limited ridiculous covers, just two. Two beauties too! Greg Capullo and John Romita Jr..

Avengers Standoff Assault On Pleasant Hill Omega #1, Marvel exclaims “…the stage is set for Major upheavals all throughout the Marvel Universe!” Didn’t fans already go through “MAJOR” changes just a few months ago? Can Marvel relax with the dramatics? Seriously. The good thing about this comic is the possibility of a first appearance in it. Keep an eye out on the new “major event” for any introductions of a new character. Especially if it’s a female character. The Jim Steranko Captain America variant cover is awesome. Regular cover price too!

A ridiculously beautiful Bill Sienkiewicz cover on Daredevil #6. Marvel is already producing a poster of this cover.

Marvel and the female dominant characters this week…..
Doctor Strange Last Days Of Magic #1 will introduce a new magic character into the Marvel U. And guess what…..it’s a female character! What a surprise!
….And speaking of the Female comic character, a solo variant cover displaying Doctor Spectrum on Squadron Supreme #6. Doctor Spectrum’s (Great Society) first appearance was in New Avengers #16 (2014). A cover price comic for the taking.
….And one more take on the female character deal. Star Wars #18 will feature Sana, Princess Leia, and Aphra all teaming up to kick some as*. That’s a book on our pull list.

A quick look at some indie comics to grab off the shelf…..

This issue is a must have in your Steve Ditko collection.

Here’s a speculation article that will run periodically regarding which comics we feel should be the next to hit the movies, television or become an animated show. Will any of these comics see the light of day? Possibly. Possibly not. InvestComics throughout its years (10 years, longest running speculative website on the internet and the number one speculative website) has called a MANY comics (and characters) to hit the screen WAY before they were ever announced to do so. Guardians of The Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Warlock, Dormammu, Kick Ass, Thanos, Nemesis, Crossbones, just to name a few that have come to light and or will be coming. We’re not saying that these comics in these articles are guarantees to ever come to fruition, but these are our choices we feel deserve some airplay….in some form. Even a video game too.

Please realize that all of this is a speculative look at the hobby. Maybe some of these will become reality, maybe most of these won’t, but understand that this is pure speculation. Read the disclaimer. Read the disclaimer. Oh and read the disclaimer and please have fun.

Rom (Movie/Toon/Game) – Marvel Comics made the Rom toy a cult favorite comic book. Now IDW will pick up the mantle and start an entirely new race and galaxy realm without any Dire Wraiths (Marvel owns that). Although a Rom based movie would seem a bit campy probably to make, we thought that of the Transformers idea too, but that worked. Maybe an animated show would fair better here.
*Rom #1 (1979) Writer Bill Mantlo and art by Sal Buscema. Cover art by Joe Rubinstein and Fran Miller. 75 issues. Rom’s first venture ever outside of his book came in Power Man and Iron Fist #73 (1981). Cover by Frank Miller.

Power Pack (Movie/Game) – As InvestComics called this comic out back in 2010, who would have known Marvel Studios would report directly to Disney eventually? We did of course. Eventually Disney will take over complete creative control, so with that said we get Power Pack on this list. A made for movie comic book right in Disney’s wheelhouse. It’s probably a matter of WHEN this will get done, not a matter of IF.
*Power Pack #1 (1984) First appearance. Writer Louise Simonson and art by June Brigman. Cover art by June Brigman and Bob Wiacek. Lasted 62 issues.

Micronauts (Movie/Game) – This toy line went on to spawn a plethora of comic books from many different companies, but it’s Marvel Comics who got things started in 1979. A movie would seem a fantastic way to go here. Michael Bay?
*Micronauts #1; First appearance. Bill Mantlo writes, art work by Michael Golden. Cover by Dave Cockrum and Al Milgrom. Lasted 59 issues.

Moon Knight (Movie/TV/Game) – InvestComics has been on this character since the inception of the website 10 years ago. If there is one character we feel that will guarantee to breakout into its own movie or television series, this dude right here is it. (A rare thing to get any sort of guarantees here on InvestComics). Check out the ultimate Moon Knight checklist from InvestComics right HERE. You will not find a better list. We guarantee it.
*First appeared in Werewolf By Night #32 (1975). First solo comic; Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976).

Alpha Flight (Movie) – Canada’s bad as* team needs to get their due. An absolute breakout film if it would ever get done. This team is the real deal.
*First appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #120 (1979). Alpha Flight #1 (1983) was written by John Byrne, art by John Byrne and cover by Byrne and Terry Ausin. Lasted 130 issues. If Alpha Flight ever takes flight and makes it to the big screen, Alpha Flight #1 will be the equivalent of New Mutants #98 in the sense that although there is a major overprint run on the book, it’ll command big dollars in the aftermarket.

Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner (Movie) – No stranger to InvestComics readers here. covered a few times over the years (BEFORE Disney became the official bosses recently) that Disney has conquered land and space on the big screen. Just a matter of time before they hit one of their favorite places; water. So many successful films for the Mouse company taking place in the depths of water. How about that first live action water superhero movie Disney? It starts right here with Prince Namor. It has to.
*First appearance Motion Picture Funnies Weekly Volume 1 #1 (1939). Fantastic Four #4; first Silver Age Namor. Stan Lee writes, art by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and cover by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Sol Brodsky. Just like InvestComics informed buyers to buy the first Inhumans at ANY grade in the past few years, buy this comic book at any grade, doesn’t matter. Buy it. The Sub Mariner #1 (1968) comic is definitely one to have in your collection once the movie finally comes to fruition. No doubt here (another guarantee). The series lasted 72 issues.

The Pro – (Movie/TV) Here is an awesome movie or HBO/AMC television show waiting to happen. A prostitute superhero tries to find her way within the grand scheme of things with a baby in tow. A cable comedy series that would kill. This comic story is not suitable for all readers. If you’re easily offended, this book is NOT for you. A movie here would be good, but leaving audiences wanting more probably, so a television series would be the better route here.
*The Pro (2002) from Image Comics; Written by Garth Ennis, art by Amanda Connor and cover by Connor/Jimmy Palmiotti.

These articles focus on comics that no one is talking about or speculating on anymore. Sometimes for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but that said these are comics that have been long forgotten and simply not thought of anymore. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down and worth some extra cash in the aftermarket, but isn’t the hunt fun too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red links provided in this article or comic cover, that’s if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Or again? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Quasar #1 (1989) Mark Gruewald writes. Origin of Quasar. Last 60 issues.

Pitt #1 (1993) Dale Keown pencils, cover art. 20 issues. This would be a fantastic movie one day if ever made.

Iceman #1 (1984) Four issue mini-series. J.M. DeMatteis writes, Alan Kupperburg pencils. Mike Zeck/John Beatty covers. Lots of creative firepower here.

Love and Rockets (1982) This critically acclaimed series is often forgotten. Fantagraphics Books. The Hernandez brothers brought a different way of comic book reading and vibe. They were way ahead of their time. The series was nominated for multiple awards throughout its 50 issue run. An ultra rare B&W cover (number one) is a hard get.

Grim Jack #1 (1984) The creative team of John Ostrander (writer) and Timothy Truman absolutely killed it here in the first 19 issues. John went on to write the rest of the series with various artist at the helm and continued to give comic book readers a great read month after month. The series lasted 80 issues.

Starriors (1984) This long forgotten four issue series was a fun read back in the day. Written by Louise Simonson, art by Michael Chen, and all covers by Bill Sienkiewicz. Probably just a matter of time before the Starriors make a comeback.

Elementals #1 (1984) Talk about a great series. This team was Comico’s version of the X-Men. The first 25 issues; written, penciled, and cover art (most) by Bill Willingham. The series ended after 29 issues. The Elementals first appeared in Justice Machine Annual #1 (1983) Texas Comics. Bill Reinhold penciled and Michael Golden provided the cover. The Elementals were fabulous.

The new Dr. Strange movie will be hitting in July of 2016. That’s not too far off believe it or not. Dr. Strange will be all kinds of awesome when it hits. A new era of Marvel Studios magic will be spectacularly accepted by moviegoers. It’s going to be the first movie in which Marvel can display its CGI full tilt. Not saying they didn’t use CGI a lot in their other films, but we’re talking the mystics here! Yes Awesomeness will ensue, be prepared.

Dr. Strange will be a huge hit. Some of his key back issues have already exploded and we’re here to make sure you’re on point to join the frenzy.

Strange Tales #110 (1963) The first appearance of Stephen Strange (Doctor Strange). Written by Stan Lee and art by Steve Ditko. Buy this comic, own it. A Jack Kirby cover, but does not feature the Doctor on the cover. Also the first appearance of Wong, and Ancient One.

Strange Tales #115 (1963) Origin issue and first appearance of Eye of Agamotto. Also the second appearance of Sandman.

Fantastic Four #27 (1964) The first cover Dr. Strange appears on. Jack ‘King’ Kirby art and cover.

Strange Tales #126 (1964) InvestComics recommended this comic a few years ago; the first appearance of Dormammu. We were ahead of the curve (as we usually are) in the sense we were foreshadowing to buy this book if a Doctor Strange movie ever gets made. Dormammu will probably be the nemesis in the Strange film. Also the first appearance of Clea which is also a good speculative thought to appear in the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (1964) The first appearance with Spider-Man. Also with the Fantastic Four and a host of others. All art by Steve Ditko. First appearance of Sinister Six.

InvestComics HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=274]

There is one comic coming out this Wednesday that holds a possible nice uptick for a comic from 1984. Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #22 will give readers a new glimpse into an old villain. It is after all the “New 52” right? The villain is Wrath and there are some very good points that need your attention here. The first is the most obvious; his first appearance, Batman Special #1 (1984) written by Mike W. Barr and drawn by Michael Golden features our first look at Wrath (I). The fun begins for collector’s right here because Batman Special #1 could be yours right now for an average of about $10. Not too shabby right? There is however a bit of a pricey CGC 9.6 available for $69. The funny thing about the CGC grade is that it doesn’t list the first appearance of Wrath. Is the character THAT insignificant?? Here is another good factor to weigh in, Wrath (I) made only 9 appearances in all since his inception. Not used much at all, so it will be easy to find any of his early appearances. So what about Wrath II you may ask? Well his return came in Batman Confidential #13 (2008). Readers can thank writer Tony Bedard and artist Rags Morales for making this happen. BC #13 is available in any long box at your local shop or comic convention for $1. The prize here is Batman Special #1. If fans accept Wrath into the New 52 fold, look for the Special #1 to start churning in the aftermarket. There is more upside to this comic than there is down. Collectors should have their radar on this one. One potential downside does show its presence; CGC Censes shows that there are only a total of 21 graded (good thing), more than half of those 21 graded sit on top; 9.8 – 8 and 9.6 – 4 (bad thing), so not that difficult to get a good grade on this comics.

Trinity of Sin Pandora (2013 DC) #1 will put Pandora front and center. There will be light shed on the woman connected to the creation of the New 52. Do readers care? If you’re feeling like Pandora really may change things to the point of WOW, then check out her first appearance in Flashpoint Vol. 2 #5 (2011). Trinity of Sin Pandora (2013 DC) #1 will also lead into the much anticipated Trinity War. The last of the DC comics this week to check out; Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #22 brings in new aliens from outer space. Where else would they come from?

Marvel Comics throws a boatload of comics that will probably be “okay” this week. Seems the House of Ideas are waning a bit this week. But let’s mention these comics nonetheless. And the honorable mentions are (in rapid fire)……

Is there a need for another Deadpool comic? Why yes there is! Deadpool Kills Deadpool (2013) #1!

If you’re a long time comic book reader, you love the What If? Stories. Jimmy Palimotti writes the latest What If? Installment; What If AvX (2013) #1. While we all love Jimmy and the What If’s?, why are we getting a What If? comic so soon from a storyline that JUST ended?? What happened to the What If? Stories like What If Conan vs. Hulk, or What if Wolverine had killed the Hulk? Remember those? Now those were fun!!

The A.I. storyline has just about run its course right? No it hasn’t according to Marvel! Check out Avengers A.I. (2013) #1 this week!

And in the milking department we have, no not Deadpool, we already covered him. We have Guardians of the Galaxy Tomorrows Avengers (2013) #1. In the next few years readers will see an overkill of these Guardians dudes, so don’t think for a second we won’t see more of these ridiculous origin stories rehashed a million times. This said, you better have their first appearances in order! Especially Marvel Preview #7 (1976)! This comic (magazine) will see only upside until the Guardians movie comes out. Then when the movie is released, well then there will be more upside. The Raccoon is going to be a huge hit with the little ones, be prepared. Moving along here, with Superior Spider-Man, Marvel gives readers Superior Foes of Spider-Man (2013) #1. Oh joy!

An interesting choice for Marvel here, Dexter (2012 Marvel) #1. Why this television show? Very un-Disney like isn’t it? More along the Disney line would be the release of the new Oz tale Emerald City of Oz (2013 Marvel) #1. So which will you pick up and read? The comic with the Dorothy and Uncle Henry adventures or the comic about a crime fighting serial killer that plots out to kill murderers, rapist, and all sorts of bad people? Tough choice right?

And on the Independent circuit….

Brianna Floss (InvestComics comic book reviewer extraordinaire) gave the new comic Owl (2013 Dynamite) #1 some praise saying: “The Owl #1 is a promising start and a good approach to a revival.” Check out Brianna’s comic reviews coming tomorrow! Clive Barker continues his all new series this week with Next Testament (2013 Boom) #2. Satellite Sam (2013 Image) #1 gets a mild 6.5/10 from Brianna. Find out why tomorrow. Other number one issues to explore this week include; Human (2013 Human Comics) #1, Mercy Sparx (2013 Devils Due) #1, Steam Engines of Oz (2013 Arcana) #1, Catalyst Comix (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Absolution Rubicon (2013 Avatar) #1.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 5-29-13

(Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and entertainment purposes. Please use your own discretion when investing.)

This week for the first time in a long while, the InvestComics Hot Picks sees no regular issue numbers appear. Only number one issues this week fans, oh and one zero issue. Let’s jump right in.

First and foremost, personal friend and big supporter of InvestComics, colorist Jeff Balke will be displaying his amazing work in Asylum (2013 Storm King) #1 coming out this week. I learned about this book about a year ago and have seen the progression of a fantastic comic. This is some of Jeff’s finest work to date. Mr. Balke was tapped recently to be a guest speaker at the University of Texas Arlington! Yes Jeff is boss. If you ever see him at your local comic convention, be sure to stop by and say hello to him and to Brandon. Two of the finest people you will ever meet at a show. If you want to check out everything Jeff Balke, click right HERE to jump to his website. I’m not just saying this because he’s a friend of mine, but Jeff Balke is one of the top colorist in the industry today. Take a look at his work and judge for yourself, you will arrive to the same conclusion I did years ago. This guy rocks! You know what else rocks? “John Carpenter’s” Asylum #1; written by the one and only Bruce Jones, with beautiful artwork by Leonardo Manco. Pick this comic up fans, it’s a winner!

InvestComics HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=260]

Marvel Comics gives fans a $7.99 reprint comic this week called Captain Universe The Hero Who Could Be You (2013) #1. Captain Universe? Really? Okay cool…. we’re in! The comic covers at least seven different comics that the Cap has appeared in. You probably could get all seven issues out of some 50 cent long box, but who would want to go through that trouble right? So what’s the next best thing? What does this comic NOT cover? How about Captain Uni’s first appearance? Well lucky you have us right? Look for Micronauts #8 (1979). This once very hot series was at the forefront of many collectors’ pull list. With creator names like Michael Golden, Bob McLeod, and Bill Mantlo attached, it’s easy to know why now. Here’s the scoop with this comic, the Micronauts #8 issue. The CGC censes only has 33of these bad boys graded. That’s not a bad number right? Well with good, some bad sorry. Out of the 33 graded, 15 sit on the 9.8 scale. That’s a bit top heavy for only 33 books you may say. A couple of things to point out though, what if there are not that many 9.8’s left sitting out there? With the Marvel cosmic movies about to take center stage in the third phase (Yes the third phase will include the cosmic universe folks, you do know that right?) Who is to say that Captain Universe won’t be a part of it?? I personally will be adding this comic to my collection, because for a mere $9 book, it could pay large dividends down the line. Micronauts #8 is a comic you buy now and hold on to it for a while. Don’t expect anything big, until maybe Marvel announces Captain Universe will be a player on the big screen. And if none of this ever come to fruition, well then you have a nice first appearance to add to your collection from the creator’s mentioned earlier for only $9.

Staying on topic with legendary names like Golden, Mantlo, McLeod, Jones, and Carpenter, we also get Clive Barker into the mix this week. Check out New Genesis (2013 Boom) #1 and witness the new original series from Clive Barker that has nothing to do with Hellraiser. There is a limited signed edition (variant) and painted cover by Mr. Barker himself. See if you can get your hands on that. It’s a rare thing to get a signed comic from one of the masters of horror like Clive.

DC Comics has a bunch of number one issues to check out this week. There are six here on the InvestComics Hot Picks to be exact, 4 of which are annuals. One number one issue is a standout, but the quick list of annuals are: Red Hood and the Outlaws (2011) Annual #1, Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) Annual #1, Earth 2 (2012 DC) Annual #1 (New Batman Earth 2 debut!), and Catwoman (2011 4th Series) Annual #1. Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #1 round’s out five number one issues. Whew, that’s a lot huh? There is that ONE number one issue that you will need to get before it flies off the shelf. Wake (2013 DC) #1 written by Scott Snyder, this all new story will touch on horror, discovery, and the birth of human life. Yes Scott, we will buy, read and watch the demand go up in the aftermarket for this comic. True story, you’ll see.

Marvel Comics offers up the first ALL woman X-Men team book in X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #1. An all-female team in an X-“MEN” #1 comic, hmmm………female postal workers are called mail persons, not mailmen right? Just saying.

And wrapping thing up with our free-for-all number one issues this week are; Westwood Witches (2013 Amigo) #1 (don’t sleep on this one), King Conan Hour of the Dragon (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Adventure Time (2012 Kaboom) Annual #1 (remember what happened with the first issue of this series, won’t happen here though, but still a buy nonetheless), Realm Knights (2013 Zenescope) #1, and the lone zero issue from our friends at Action Lab Comics Pirate Eye Pirates Life (2013 Action Lab) #0!

That’s it for now. Be sure to sign up for the InvestComics Newsletter on the front page of the website, or below!
