Buy/Bid – Punisher The Platoon #1

Buy/Bid – The Punisher #52

Buy/Bid – Venom #155

Buy/Bid – Darth Vader #6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marvel’s Punisher The Platoon #1 is a direct take from the 1991 hit storyline ‘Punisher Invades Nam’. The two-part story was a speculative dream that began in Punisher #52. It was a hot book for a little bit, but then fizzled out. Doesn’t everything? The 1991 comic was written by Mike Harris and drawn by Roger Salick. The inker, maybe you heard of him, Jimmy Palmiotti? Yes, that DC Harley Quinn guy. And so much more! The current Punisher Platoon story will be from Garth Ennis and Goran Parlov.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Will there be a bigger book than Star Wars Darth Vader #6 this week? (update 10-1-17: this comic could be delayed this week) Probably not, if this happens to be the first appearance of a new Inquisitorius. Creators; Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli.
Iron Fist #73, ‘Reintroduces the savagery of Sabre-Tooth’. Marvel Legacy hype, love it!

Buy/Bid – Iron Fist #73

Buy/Bid – Spirits Of Vengeance #1

Buy/Bid – Venom #155

Buy/Bid – Venomverse #5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the big two push the reset button, lots of cool things tend to happen. Regardless of certain protesting silly fanboys, there are always great things to look forward to. One of those things from Marvel’s Legacy launch is Mike McKone’s cool headshot covers. Take a look at a couple of them displayed in this article.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
The new Venom #155, John Tyler Christopher trading card cover is superb. It’ll definitely make it to our Best Comic Book Covers Of The Week. Don’t expect this eye candy to stay on the shelf too long though.
Venomverse #5, Declan Shalvey variant cover, that red symbol in front of the Punisher……..Batman, no? It sure looks like it. At quick glance, it fools you for a second.

Buy/Bid – All-Star Batman #14

Buy/Bid – Batman #32

Buy/Bid – Batman White Knight #1

Buy/Bid – Harley Ivy Betty Veronica #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A week full of Batman comics is a good week.
The Joker as ‘White Knight’ in Batman: White Knight #1. Written and drawn by Sean Murphy.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Soap opera hits Batman and comic fans. The ‘answer’ everyone has been waiting for will arrive this week in Batman #32. Will Catwoman accept the marriage proposal (Batman #24) from Batman? If she says yes (which does not seem too likely), this comic will be very sort after in a hurry. If she says she’ll pass, this comic will not be very sort after. See, simple math is fun. All-Star Batman #14 will be Scott Snyder’s final issue.
A fantastic crossover arrives this week. Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1. Archie is the envy of every fanboy, now add two more to the list as Harley and Ivy vie for Archie’s attention/affection. That’s four hotties’ after one dude. Superstar creators all over this one too. Paul Dini, Marc Andreyko, Laura Braga and Amanda Conner.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks:
Eugenic #1 (Boom Studios). An InvestComics Top 5 candidate here. Writer James Tynion and artist Eryk Donovan.
The cover alone to Weed Magic #1 from Bliss On Tap is enough to make anyone’s head turn. It is fabulous and I absolutely love it. Paying homage in the ‘highest’ way possible to DC’s Action Comics #1. Cover artist Alex Cormack has this cover lit. Creators Brian Phillipson and Alex Cormack bring the tale of two stoner’s named Moe & Bunny. Yes, smoke em’ if you got em!

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 6-17-09

fpic61709.gif

 

 

 

 

It’s an early release for one comic this week. Monday is the biggest Captain America issue since #25. It’s already sold out. If it’s not on your pull list, too bad for you.

captainamerica600.gifdeathofcapimg.gifCaptain America #600 
Has it been 575 issues since Steve Rogers departed? No it hasn’t, but it sort of fells like a long time doesn’t it? This is where Marvel comics super exceeds DC by leaps and bounds. DC kills characters almost every other week it seems and every other week someone comes back from the dead. Marvel has kept Steve Rogers, yes “The” Captain America dead for about 2 years. That’s impressive by today’s standards. Not as impressive as keeping Captain Marvel
dead for all those years before tinkering to bring him back, but impressive nonetheless. Yes Marvel has had their share of bringing the dead back to life. Phoenix and  Elecktra have more lives than Pa Kent. Getting past that, Marvel has done this one right. How else could anyone explain that the Captain America title has done so well without Steve Rogers as Cap? One word needed here: Brubaker. Here’s a news flash fans, riveting storytelling will always win over anything else in the comic book
world. The mere fact that the Captain America comic has sustained its core audience and turned new readers by the droves to jump on board is a huge victory here for all. So what is the big draw here to number 600 exactly? Marvel’s hype machine will hit full throttle on this one. Like the release on Monday instead of Wednesday. The television coverage it’s gaining. Here is the million dollar question. Is Steve Rogers coming back? Not to sound too crass but hopefully he’s not coming back. Bringing him back now would just seem, well not real enough. Yes these are comic books and yes it’s not supposed to be taken so seriously, but tell that to the readers of the Cap series. It’s realism at its finest form. So real in fact we all saw Steve’s lifeless body on the gurney, super serum gone and all, we also saw his body drift away into the abyss. He’s dead right? How do you reverse this? How compelling or brilliant must a writer be to bring him back? Brubaker obviously has had a plan since day one as so Marvel has told us. This better be big Ed. You must make the fans gasp when the reveal happens. We really hope not to see Steve Rogers (Patrick Duffy) in the shower saying, “good morning honey”.  The funny thing about all of this is that Steve Rogers is probably not even coming back in this issue. The foundation might be set in this issue for the Cap’s Rebirth coming soon; Steve might not even show up in there! Well Mr. Brubaker
looks like you have a monumental task on your hands. You have all of us waiting to see the next chapter in the new Captain America era. There is no reason why we should all think that now will be the time you let us down. No pressure Mr. Brubaker, no pressure.

Dark Reign: Mister Negative #1  Here is a comic that you could have fun with
this week. Search for 5 villains and their first appearance from this ONE
comic. Scorcher in Untold Tales of Spider-Man #1, Speed Demon from Amazing
Spider-Man #222
, The Squid could be found in Peter Parker:Spider-Man #16, the sexy White Rabbit in Marvel Team Up #131 and last but not least, Mister
Negative could be found in the first part of the Brand New Day storyline, Amazing Spider-Man #546. All of these comics are under the $5 mark except for the first White Rabbit; she comes in at the $15. Happy hunting!

Here are a few first appearances you could look for this week. Romulus makes an appearance in Wolverine Origins #37. Find Romulus’ 1st ever in Wolverine #50 from 2007. X-Men Origins: Gambit #1 (One Shot) is coming at you this week. The Wolverine movie has sparked the interest of our favorite Cajun hero. Find Gambit’s cameo in Uncanny X-Men Annual #14 and his 1st full in Uncanny X-Men #266. American Eagle starts kicking butt in War Machine #7. Already featured on IC as a BUY, it’s a cheap first appearance of a character that has tremendous breakout ability as far as popularity goes.
