InvestComics Checklist – Deathstroke.

Since the inception of InvestComics 10+ years ago, we have informed speculators about Deathstroke. At that time, following InvestComics’ guidance, the first appearance of Deathstroke could cost been a mere $45 for a collector. Now it’s a bit more, but you still may have some upside. Yes he’s already been exposed into the WB Arrow televison show world, but this character still has yet to make it to one more place; the big screen. And he will eventually. When he does, that first appearance with double/triple in value. He’s Marvel’s Deadpool/Punisher rolled into one. The assassin for hire is a total bad as* and DC Comics knows this. The explosiveness of this character brings nothing like DC has on film anywhere. Marvel already has, DC doesn’t. A Deathstroke on the big screen would be a hit. It’s already a hit on Arrow, but television doesn’t always translate to the speculative point in the comics market. Movies usually have a higher impact. Although pricing is a bit high in various places for Deathstroke’s first appearance, it’s still a buy. As a speculator, do your research and your shopping around. The moment you feel you have a deal, go in for the kill and buy it. You’ll be happy you did.

Below is a checklist of many first appearances and more regarding Deathstroke. If this character ever gets his due, look for some of the books in this list to command attention in the aftermarket.

Some Key Deathstroke comics:

The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) The first appearance of Deathstroke. Art by George Perez, cover by George Perez and written by Marv Wolfman. A classic comic and still a bull market here.

The New Teen Titans #9 (1981) Deathstroke didn’t come back for his second appearance until 7 issues later. An extremely undervalued book here.

Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) Part 3 of the Judas contract. This timeless comic features the first appearance of Nightwing and an early appearance of Deathstroke. Classic Perez cover.

Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 (1985) Another timeless classic here. It wasn’t until the fifth issue of this amazingly awesome story we saw an appearance of Deathstroke. George Perez/Marv Wolfman.

Wonder Woman #61 (1992) The same as the Hawkworld Annual book. A War of the Gods crossover book. When will Deathstroke make a regular appearance in the DC Universe other than appearing with so many other heroes and villains?

Comic Broker Report – April 2014

It seems like every day there’s some new announcement for comic film and T.V. adaptations.  Today it’s Superior from Mark Millar!  No matter what it is critical that studios keep putting out films like The Winter Soldier.  As long as that happens studios will continue to harvest the back issues bins and extract things like Squee! and Dreadstar!  Here are this month’s recommendations:

Detective Comics 457

Detective_Comics_457

Is Holly Hunter playing Leslie Thompkins in Zack Snyder’s sequel to Man of Steel?  If she does go grab multiple copies of this one.  Not

Note:  This one is highly speculative.  Nothing has been confirmed.

RAVAGER!

Ok so Summer Glau is still being type cast but she looks good as Ravager/Rose Wilson, daughter of the mega popular Deathstroke on CW’s Arrow.  As far as I can tell these would be the issues to buy:

Deathstroke 15 ( first Rose Wilson )

55_33593_0_DeathstrokeTheTerminator15Exca

Teen Titans 1/2 Wizard ( first Ravager costume? )

BI_teentitanshalfv3

Teen Titans Vol. 3  # 8

j

On the show Summer plays Isabel Rochev who is also a major player in the current comic series and like the comic version, she takes over Oliver’s company.  But Rochev and Wilson are two different people in the comics.  It looks like Arrow’s Rochev is simply a cover identity to hide the Wilson name.  But if you are wondering where Rochev appears first, here ya go:

Green Arrow Volume Four  1B (  1:25 Ethan Van Sciver Variant )

Green_Arrow_Vol_4_1_Variant

Marvel Graphic Novel 3: Dreadstar

So by now it’s known that Dreadstar is getting the film treatment.  Epic 1,2,3 are all keys if you ask me but this one might prove to be very tough to find in high grade/first print.

This isn’t easy to find either!

Green Team 8

So DC announced the return of the Teen Titans.  This is why you are already seeing price jumps for DC Comics Presents 26.  So what does the Green Team 8 have to do with the Titans?  Read the last page of this underprinted DC New 52 title  for a shocker!

Runaways 1

f

Here’s one I would buy now.  Eventually this Marvel gem will make it to the big screen.  Oh and it’s written by an industry legend.

Dead Letters 1

$_35

Other folks on the web have already shed some light on this one.  There are variants for issue one but the print run for the reg cover was so low that I would buy it as well.  This is one you can find on shelves now if your LCS  orders a wide variety of titles.

New Mutants 25

background

The sequel to X-Men Days of Future Past has already been confirmed by Director Brian Singer.  Once we learned that the Age of Apocalypse story is central to the plot I am sure fans of Legion rejoiced.  Prof  X’s son plays a big role in AOA and if he’s a part of the next film look for this issue to explode.

Warrior 1 ( Signed Only )

Sometimes collecting comics for a long time can make one feel as though they have seen it all.  So when  a comic is released by the creator of the Walking Dead with some truly adult subject matter, collector’s should take notice.  In this case we also have a comic has a pretty low print run.  Demand for this book will climb over the next month but there just aren’t enough to go around.

Note:  I would grab issue 44 as well!

Sword of Azrael 1

sth

This one is cheap and well written.  Because the replacement Batman could end up in a film I suggest a little speculation here.   There’s also a DF signed edition and a Silver Series reprint.

Metal Hurlant 1

This one is impossible to find.    Corben fans should be pleased that this series is on T.V.
