Aside from the obvious success of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has amassed quite the career thus far. This Creator Spotlight will not focus on the Walking Dead comics Robert has done because InvestComics has already covered most of them throughout the years. We’re going to focus on his body of work besides TWD, which is quite impressive to say the least. A young career, but yet so vast.

 

Battle Pope #1 (2000) Robert’s first published work. From Funk-O-Tron.

Battle Pope #2 (2000) Here is the first rare pencils from Kirkman. A pinup page.

Battle Pope #5 (2001) Kirkman’s first story art.

Superpatriot America’s Fighting Force #4 (2002) The first work outside of the indie circuit (besides the Dark Horse 9/11 book) for a major publisher. Image Comics.

Thief of Thieves #1 (2012) This series was a boiling book at one time. Never mind a hot one. It still commands some money in the aftermarket, but has since cooled down because of the lack of non-movement regarding a television show. Speculators however still anticipate something to happen.

The InvestComics Wristband Contest At New York Comic Con 2015. #InvestComicsNYCC

Buy a $1 wristband (Below), wear it at the NYCC 2015, find a member of the InvestComics team and you will get to select a graded comic for you to keep.

This October (8th-11th) at the Javits Center in New York, InvestComics fans will seek out a member of the InvestComics team at the New York Comic Con 2015 (wearing their black wristband) in the greatest (and FIRST) comic book website manhunt ever; to win a graded comic book of their choice! Each day of the show will give fans 4 different days to win. Which means one wrist band equals four chances to win. The graded comics are listed below and are yours for the taking, but you’ll have to find us first amidst the drones of NYCC fans walking around!

IC BAND COMIC

Select One Of These Four

Amazing Spider-Man #11 (2015) Signed by Dan Slott. Graded by 9.2. Marvel Animation Variant.

Spawn #16 (1993) Signed by Greg Capullo. Graded 8.5 by.

George Perez’s Sirens #1 (2014) Signed by George Perez and April Hunter. Graded by 9.6.

Outcast #1 (2014) Graded by 9.6

Here’s how you participate: You can purchase your black InvestComics.com wristband at the website www.trendingpopculture.com for $1 each (plus shipping) AND at NYCC, more on that in a bit. Fans can purchase more than one wristband if they’d like. It doesn’t mean if you wear more bands you may find us better, it means you purchase more bands and give them to your friends to seek us out too! Wristbands will also be available at the NYCC for purchase for $1 each. InvestComics has partnered up with a few booths (maybe more, we’ll announce) at the show to carry the wristbands. They will be limited, so get there quickly if you need to purchase any. The booths will be; Comicxposure, Creature Entertainment, Cosmic Times, and Royal Collectables. Walk up to any of these booths and ask to buy a wristband for the InvestComics Manhunt Contest.

***The Comicxposure team says that if a fan purchases an InvestComics wristband at their booth, you will get $5 off any variant!

How to play: The InvestComics team will be at the show all four days; Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each day the Manhunt will begin at a different time. The coverage space equals anywhere INSIDE the NYCC.

Thursday October 8th: 4:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Friday October 9th: 5:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Saturday October 10th: 5:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Sunday October 11th: 4:00 PM (35 minutes to find us)

Once the clock strikes the particular time, the manhunt to find an InvestComics team member will begin. Each member will be wearing an official InvestComics t-shirt (like the one pictured below). Once a contestant finds a member, show us you are wearing your wristband, we will record the exact time (stop watches set together) and head back to base. We will call ahead to see if any other members are on the way back. If so, we will compare times to see who officially won the right to select their graded comic.

IC Crew

L-R Stan Lee, Jay Katz, Rafael Rosario, Greg Capullo, Taylor

 

 

 

 

 

 

As each Graded comic goes off the board we will send an alert via Social Media as to who won (The winners picture of course) and what comic they selected.

The Rules: As with every contest there must be rules.

  1. If you are caught trailing(following) us before the bell sounds on a particular day, you will be automatically disqualified and ineligible to participate in the contest on any given day(s) left.
  2. Once you choose a graded comic, your picture will be taken and blasted via social media. You cannot under any circumstance change your mind and want a different comic thereafter.
  3. You cannot win more than once. If you bought a band for a friend and they find us, then they get a picture and they can do with the graded comic as they wish (give it to you).
  4. The contest takes place ONLY inside the NYCC. Meaning if the time starts and you find an InvestComics team member outside the boundaries of the NYCC you cannot claim your prize.
  5. A claimant cannot claim their prize inside the press area or right outside of it.
  6. If a graded comic goes unclaimed, it will remain in the mix for a person to choose in the next phase (day). A person will not have an option of taking two comics.
  7. No affiliate or team member of InvestComics is eligible in this contest. This includes any involvement of parties in this contest.

*InvestComics reserves the right to alter the contest in any way from now until the dates of the actual show.

*We reserve the right to cancel the contest at any given time in which each participate will be refunded their monies spent in the contest.

*Cosmic Times, Comicxposure, Creature Entertainment, and Royal Collectables will possess absolutely no graded comics in this contest at their booths. They do not have any involvement/affiliation with InvestComics and nor are they responsible whatsoever of anything pertaining to the contest. Their main and only priority is to provide an outlet to purchase an InvestComics.com wristband. Any person(s) giving any sort of grievance to any of these companies of any kind will be automatically disqualified.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/24/14

Happy Holidays everyone!!

In the “In case you missed it” department. Check out the special InvestComics holiday comic covers article right HERE. The holiday article originally came out in 2011 right HERE.

Nova_InvestComics Superman_InvestComicsBe sure to check out the awesomeness of this Batman (2011 2nd Series) Annual #3 Wednesday. This story will be huge for a lot of readers according to DC. Too bad we don’t get the giant sized annuals anymore right?!

Grayson (2014 DC) Annual #1 will tell the secret origin of Helena Bertinelli (aka Huntress). Huntress first appeared in The Huntress #1 (1989).

DC promises some big changes for the Superman character next year. It may start in Superman (2011 3rd Series) #37 this week. Be on the look out for this one.

Superman and Wonder Woman will continue their battle with a new villain named Wonderstar in Superman Wonder Woman (2013) #14.

DC tops out their Hot Picks on InvestComics this week with Flash (2011) #37 and Robin Rises Alpha (2014) #1. Flash is a murderous one, which is awesome. And Robin is back with superpowers?! Put up some hot cocoa and sit at that kitchen table while everyone sleeps. Good reading here.

It seems as though Marvel may off someone again. Be sure to read Avengers and X-Men Axis (2014 Marvel) #9 to see who it might be.

Batman_Endgame_InvestComics Robin_InvestComicsIf you haven’t been reading Nova, now is a great time to jump aboard. Looks like Nova (2013 5th Series) #25; Nova is going through some changes and Marvel is making this issue an extra sized one and a jumping on point. There is an awesome Arthur Adams variant for only $20 available too. Maybe a book to get signed and graded. With the latest news that Nova will not see action in a Marvel movie, just means that it’s too early to speculate if that will hold up. Changes happen all the time in the movie business and I think we will see Nova in a movie eventually years down the line.

Image Comics this week will be busy on the speculative/readers side. Outcast continues its reign on the popularity contest. Just because Cinemax bought the rights from Kirkman, does not mean anything will ever become of it. Doesn’t mean the speculator should not be all over this comic, but it does mean to be wise. This holds true for ALL TV or movie developments or better yet, buyouts. Get Outcast (2014 Image) #6 this week and enjoy your story for what it is. Don’t bank on anything until you see more movement with Cinemax. Two must gets this week are They’re Not Like Us (2014 Image) #1 and Graveyard Shift (2014 Image) #1. Both look very promising on both sides of the spectrum.

Fathom_InvestComics Superman_Wonder_Woman_Wonderstar_InvestComicsThe late Michael Turner was one of the industries awesome talents. Gone too soon. One of his crowning achievements was the creation of Fathom. This week collectors get the first ever sourcebook of Fathom with a Michael Turner cover. Michael would have enjoyed the love Fathom still gets these days. Check out Fathom Sourcebook (2014 Aspen) #1. And speaking of Aspen, InvestComics hit on issue number one of Zoohunters as an interesting looking story. Check out Zoohunters (2014 Aspen) #2 coming out this week.

Just in time for Christmas is a comic by Cosmic Times. Not so much a Christmas story actually, but a “what if” story. A story about pondering ones own existence. This time of year, during holiday season, many of us do our own soul searching, our own reflecting from the the past year. InvestComics’ pondering says that in the future; What I.F. (one shot) will be at your local comic shop this Wednesday and should be bought.

Being a huge fan of sticker packs back in the 80’s, Garbage Pail Kids was one of everyone’s favorite. IDW will revisit the Garbage Pail Kids in their very own comic; Garbage Pail Kids Comic Book Puketacular (2014 IDW) #1. This is going to be fun!

What_IF_InvestComicsA cool softcover of Stan Lee will be hitting shelves this Wednesday. Look for Who Is Stan Lee? SC (2014 Grosset & Dunlap) BAM! POW!.

Marvel Comics loves to have that romantic X-Men cover every now and again. InvestComics had a funny checklist of all (most) of the romantic X-Men covers right HERE and HERE. We’ll have to add Cyclops (2014 2nd Series) #8 to the list!

Have a great holiday everyone.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 9/24/14

[scrollGallery id=372]

So how did you all like the short Baltimore Comic Con video? If you missed it, here it is….

InvestComics will have a full rundown of all of the comic shows that we were a part of this past year. Quite a few! Some great highlights and very few lowlights, but there was one particular lowlight that far exceeded anything we could have imagined, but you’ll have to read the wrap-up article to see exactly what I’m talking about. It’s something that all collectors should definitely be aware of. It’s an alarmingly disappointing find and very important too. With that, like I said, the good superseded the bad by a huge margin.

Some quick DC Futures End comics to touch on….

1346858_xl2017484A new Superman will be making an appearance in Superman Futures End (2014) #1. This dude has it right with a full facemask on. No one will be mistaking him for Clark ever. I’m really digging the new look. Check it out on the cover to the right.

A good amount of copies remain for the Harley Quinn Futures End (2014) #1 issue, kind of surprising figuring how hot Harley was or is. Guess the cool down continues to occur.

There is only one sold out Futures End book this week. That goes to Catwoman Futures End (2014) #1 3D variant. Why is this?

New characters, costumes, and villains will continue to pop up in the Spider-Verse story line, so be sure to stay on top on these books. Edge of Spider-Verse (2014 Marvel) #3 will be one of those books.

New Avengers (2013 3rd Series) #24 is an extra sized issue. It features a spectacular Gabriele Dell’Otto cover with Thanos. Beautiful work. It’s also a part of Marvel’s “In Eight months – Time Runs Out” deal.

Robert Kirkman continues his onslaught of sold out comics. Can this dude do no wrong right now? Be very sure to buy Outcast (2014 Image) #4 this week. Not only because it’s one of the hottest series on the planet right now, but because this issue introduces a major player into the fold. Let’s see, a mainstay character’s first appearance in a HOT comic series by Robert Kirkman? Uh yeah, buy this. Buy this comic regardless of the slight lull in the aftermarket. When the Outcast series picks up steam regarding a television show, you’re going to wish you had the back issues. Especially an early issue with a major intro like this one coming out this week. Did I mention it’s sold out?

…And another hot comic that has the comic fandom in a bit of a tizzy these days, sold out two consecutive times before and now this week marks its third sellout in a row; Wool (2014 Cryptozoic) #3. Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray continue to bring it.

Parallel Man (2014 Future Dude) #1 will be sold out in a week, should check that out. Roche Limit (2014) #1 will without a doubt be seeing a second printing very soon. It will be sold out by Friday my speculator friends, better get on this one. It’s a space opus, very interesting story, and a new Image comic……all adding up to the possibility of something special. Buy this comic. Town Called Dragon (2014 Legendary) #1 is on the verge of a sellout status.

IDW goes with their fourth volume in the G.I. Joe series with GI Joe (2014 IDW Volume 4) #1. The Cliff Chiang cover is selling very well.

 

That’s is for this week. See you soon.

Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 8/27/14

1973237

Ultimate Spider-Man #29

Wool was optioned for a movie. That prompted issue number to be sold out and with that, Wool (2014 Cryptozoic) #2 has sold out now too. Stay close to this series for now. Remember, just because a comic book was optioned does not mean anything will ever materialize. Many times the comic market has a knee jerk reaction to the news and then many are stuck with comics that are impossible to sell. The best we do get though are great stories to read.

This week Superman (2011 3rd Series) #34 sees the introduction of the villain known as Machinist. Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. are giving the fans what they want, some new life breathe into DC’s flagship title. Is this in fact a first appearance though or just a New 52 first appearance? The Machinist first appeared in Wildstorm #1 (2006).  Same dude? Probably not.

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast continues to garner attention. The latest edition; Outcast (2014 Image) #3 comes out this week. Issue one and two sold out. Look for issue three to follow that trend.

Last week I recommended Teen Titans #16 (1982), It’s the first appearance of Captain Carrot. I was having some fun and wanted to set a trend to make the book hot. This week I will revisit the wacky, but first let me make a point…….quite a few InvestComics Hot Picks ago I explained that Marvel’s Spider-Verse saga was all a basic ploy to see which solo spider books they can possibly get off the ground and sell. Spider-Verse will bring every single Spider-Man character ever front and center. I compiled a huge Spider-Verse list of the many faces of Spider-Man. It’s a list you’d probably want to keep handy given all of the new Spider characters we’ll see popping up or getting their own comic. Like the new Spider-Woman title. How about a new Peter Porker comic? Wait Peter Porker? Yes. Check out Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #29; Spider-Ham has taken over. So expect A LOT more Spidey books and take overs to occur moving onward towards Spider-Verse, before, during and after. Now let’s get back to the wacky stuff. Peter Porker first appeared in Marvel Tails Starring Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 (1982). The Ultimate Spider-Ham first appeared in Ultimate FF #5 (2014). Awesome! Let Spider-Verse begin! And click right HERE to check out that InvestComics Spider-Verse Checklist, some great hidden gems in there.

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #5 will focus on the character Cyborg. I have recommended DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) countless times throughout the years. This comic of course features the first appearance of the New Teen Titans and several new characters. It’s a very obtainable book, not scarce at all. The main reason for the prices to be where they are at. Cyborg first appeared in DCP #26 and he’s also going to be in the Superman vs. Batman film. Will we also get a Teen Titans spin off from this film besides the Justice League? Most likely yes, so buckle in and get ready for DC Comics Presents to become an even hotter book way down the line somewhere. It’s going to be a way for Warner Bros. to attract that younger core audience. The book is an absolute bargain right now with average RAW prices on Ebay going in the $60 range. A 9.2 graded sold for $135 and a 7.5 sold for $81. So here’s what you do. Buy yourself a high grade raw copy. Get George Perez and Marv Wolfman to sign it (get a witness). Grade it, and you have yourself a wonderful resale right now, but more so in the future.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) First Appearance of The New Teen Titans.

Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #16 will give a semi-Superman history lesson told by Kamandi. This history class won’t be a bore! Various artists contribute to the different Supermen throughout the years. Should be a great nostalgic look and read.

The Fox channel has a hit on their hands with the show Bob’s Burgers. Now that hit series will become a comic book for the first time; Bobs Burgers (2014) #1. Look for the Midtown Comics Exclusive for only $10. Get some of the cast to sign it. Have it witnessed of course and grade it. It’ll be a unique book to resell to a Bob’s Burgers fan.

Face Value #1 from Autism at Face Value brings the topic of autism front and center. Heroes with autism. It’s an important awareness comic that everyone should check out. If you’d like to learn more about autism and donate go right HERE to the Autism Research Institution.

Other comics you definitely need to check out this week are Wayward (2014 Image) #1, Pop (2014 Dark Horse) #1, Jaegir (2014) #0, Hero Cats (2014 Action Lab) #1, Brainstorm (2014) #1, Shinobi Ninja Princess (2014) #1, and Sundowners (2014) #1.
