The new Deadpool comic will introduce the Mexican version of……Deadpool! Meet Masacre in Deadpool #3.1.
Kanan The Last Padawan #9 will have Caleb Dume facing off against General Grievous.
We love the Silk character and we love the Mark Bagley variant cover to Silk #2!
Squadron Supreme #1 debuts on new comic book day. It should be a good team book. Written by James Robinson and art from Leonard Kirk. Squadron Supreme first appeared in Avengers #85 (1971).
An interesting Marvel title this week to check out; Starbrand and Nightmask #1. Pick up the first appearances of Starbrand (new) in Avengers #7 (2013) and the first appearance of Nightmask (character) in Avengers #6 (2013) for cover price or less if you believe in these heroes to advance to greater heights in the realm of the new Marvel universe. Speculators have been put on notice.
Ultimate End #5 will be the last issue. See how it all ends. We’re loving that cover with Miles looking back. *sniff sniff*
Marvel’s new Weirdworld series will introduce a new character named Becca. We like the direction of this new series. Stay with this one. Written by Sam Humphries. Art by Mike Del Mundo. The regular “Flash/Shazam/Black Adam” Lightning bolt cover is awesome as well. Be sure to pick up Weirdworld #1 Vol. 2.
…..And Marvel releases their first Darth Vader Annual this Wednesday.

What would be better than having Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti on the monthly Harley Quinn and Starfire comics? How about a totally creative controlled NEW comic character by the awesome duo? Yes it will happen and HER name will be Super Zero. Super Zero #1 will be written by Amanda and Jimmy. Dru Dragowski (Super Zero) will become the next big female hero to enter the comic book arena. After-Shock Comics once again, week after week continues to bring it. After-Shock Comics are not gunning for tremors, they’re gunning to split the foundation of the comic industry. ASC will be a force to be reckoned with.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

An all new Judge Dredd series from IDW comes out this week. Judge Dredd #1 Vol. 5 will have several variants available. The Archie variant is a neat one.
IDW will also start on a new Star Trek series. This has nothing to do with the Marvel title from 1996. Star Trek Starfleet Academy #1 will introduce new Star Trek characters so if you’re a Trekkie, you’ll want to get this. Speculators have been notified.
Also from IDW; Pinocchio Vampire Slayer Versus The Vampire Zoo. A fun looking book!

Kevin Eastman of TMNT fame will co-write a new series coming out from Dynamite Entertainment; Cage Hero #1.

Also from Dynamite, James Bond fans will have something to celebrate besides the movie coming to a theater near you. A new comic; James Bond #1. The last variant count we have is up to 10, so plenty of pointless variants to choose from. We’d love to say to get your paws on the Jock variant, but we’re very unimpressed with the cover. Eye candy is nil.

Shane Davis’ Axcend #2, now that’s an impressive variant. And a cool comic too!

If you’re a person that follows the political landscape and you love demons, then Citizen Jack #1 (Image) is for you. Check out this crazy off-beat comic from writer Sam Humphries and artist Tommy Patterson.

There are a few reasons why to love Monstress #1 from Image Comics. First and foremost, it’s written by the talented Marjorie Liu. Second, it’s drawn by X-23 artist Sana Takeda. Third, it’s a new ongoing series, and fourth, it contains 66 (yes 66) pages of comic story with no interruptions. All for a $4.99 price point. There are currently none of these comics available on Ebay right now.

Paper Girls #2 will follow up Brian K Vaughan’s hit debut issue.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

A gorgeous variant cover from Gabriele Dell Otto this week; Amazing Spider-Man (Vol 4) #3. Onward to volume five starring Deadpool in Deadpool (Vol 5) #1. Another relaunch within the new Marvel Universe. It is Deadpool though, so expect early price gauging on some of the variants, then back to reality. Lots of variants to choose from here.

Fans of the WWE will recognize the writer’s name in Drax #1. None other than CM Punk. He’s already done some work over at DC Comics (which we’ve covered), but this is the first time he’s doing creative work for Marvel Comics. The Ed McGuinness UFC cage variant would be a nice comic to get signed/graded if you’re a CM Punk fan. Thing is about the UFC gig, Punk announced he would be headed towards the UFC for some real deal fighting a long time ago (earlier this year?). Everyone is still waiting. That all said, a Drax solo comic should be a fun deal.

A new Hercules (Vol 4) #1 from Marvel arrives this Wednesday. The best of all volumes in the Marvel Universe came in 1982’s Hercules #1. The entire comic practically, creatively, was done by the awesome Bob Layton. It was a great four issue mini-series. In 2015, writer Dan Abnett and artist Luke Ross take a crack at it.

The biggest comic in all the land this week will be……brace yourself…..ready…..Howard The Duck (Vol 5) #1. I cannot believe I just typed that! And no we’re not drinking the Kool-Aid that some others may serve up. The mention of this comics has nothing to do pertaining to the character in this title. Simply because the latest craze in all the land; Gwenpool. And yes InvestComics gave speculators a heads up on her first appearance. (we’re awesome like that). Gwenpool will grace a variant cover and guess what? It’s sold out already! No surprise there. So the question here is not whether this will be a Scooby Doo #12 (which InvestComics did not talk about. Completed listings not sold on Ebay recently at $16.95/$14.95/$6.00) or a comic to buy and sell for a possible nice sum of money to buy a couple of weeks worth of your pull list. The answer is the latter. And here’s something for anyone really pushing the Howard The Duck character too. If you visit InvestComics on a regular basis, you will remember the Howard The Duck speculator clinic we put forth in March of this year. Remember, InvestComics is always in a business oriented mindset first and foremost when speaking about money for the speculator. We are looking out for your best interest. No fanboy stuff here, go elsewhere for that. So we are going to copy and paste the idea we put forth of why we think Howard The Duck will not come to fruition anytime soon on television or the movies.

..…..The Howard book will be a fun read though, so get it for at least that reason! Both are cool. So don’t get all hurt that I’m not that high on the Howard book. Speculation = opinion. Not that owning the Fear #19 (1976) book (first appearance of Howard the Duck) is a bad thing, but if you’re in the market to buy a good first appearance for $250 or $500 dollars, there are other books to seriously consider. Ask yourself this. Would Disney really want to jeopardize/replace the lure of Donald Duck with a wise cracking, cigar smoking duck? I highly doubt they want to throw Howard in our faces as the duck to really remember and constantly have questions from children to adults saying, “Is that Donald Duck?”. Um no. Disney would not want this. Why do you think there is no real talk about a cartoon or a movie pertaining to Howard? For this reason. Too close to Donald. Maybe someday Disney will bite the bullet and release a Howard cartoon or movie, but as for right now it’s not happening. Maybe a Howard the Duck comic book is a feeler to see what sort of attention it gets? Then maybe we’ll get some real news of something? This speculator doesn’t think we’ll see anything for some time. The Donald lure is way more important to Disney right now than destroying the very fabric of Disneyland or anything pertaining to Donald with people constantly mistaking Donald for Howard. Bycomparison, will we ever see a nasty mouse character created within the Marvel U that looks very similar to the Big Mouse with an attitude and possible cigar? The short answer is no. Howard will stay where he is right now and Disney is very content with that.

So there you have it. Lets recap shall we? Buy the Howard/Gwenpool variant this Wednesday, think about spending your $250-$500 elsewhere instead of his first appearance. Simple enough.

It’s just a matter of time before we see Nova appear in a movie or get his own thing going right? The Nova comics have always been entertaining, Nova (Vol 6) #1 will not disappoint.

A new Star Wars comic; Star Wars #11. An awesome Stuart Immonen cover here. We turned the comic horizontally so fans can really see it in its full glory. As always, any and all Star Wars comics; always a buy here at InvestComics.
A lot of creators from the comic industry contribute to Uncanny X-Men #600. Comic fans will want to thumb through this to see if their favorite creator contributed.
The new Vision (Vol 2) #1 looks very interesting. A definite pick up. A possible sleeper here. Take a look at that Ryan Sook variant as well, sweet.

451 Media Group seem to have a new hot book almost every week now. ExMortis #1 is sold out. Would you believe us if we told you that there will be a Santa Claus Year One type comic coming this week? How about if we told you that Grant Morrison will write it? Okay so this is Boom Studios’ premise to their new Klaus #1 comic. All set to a viking theme of course. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Others to check out; Hangman #1 (Dark Circle). Exodus Life After #1 (Oni Press). And just in time for Halloween, a story (sold out) from Space Goat Productions; Forty Coffins #1. Johnny Red #1 (Titans Comics) Garth Ennis writes. Another possible sleeper this week to watch out for; Niobe She Is Life #1 from Stranger Comics.

Captain America Elected President Of The United States of America!

Marvel sent out this Press Release and boy it’s a biggie! Scroll through the preview pages below!

Historic Story Begins in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, On-Sale Tomorrow

New York. NY—September 18, 2012—The people have spoken—and tomorrow Steve Rogers, the man known as Captain America, becomes President Elect of the United States of America! In Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, from rising star writer Sam Humphries and fan-favorite artist Billy Tan, Captain America’s made his dramatic return and publically saved America from an insidious new enemy in one of his most harrowing battles yet. But when all the dust settles, Steve Rogers is about to get the biggest surprise of his life—he’s won the special election for the Presidency via write-in! What does this mean for his future as Captain America? Can he be a President who fights on the frontlines? You’ll find out when this landmark issue hits comic stores, the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and the Marvel Digital Comics Shop tomorrow!

“This is one of those stories that could only be told in the Ultimate Comics Universe, where the only rule is simple—there are no rules.” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “We’ve seen Captain America fight wars and battle super villains, but running a country is a whole new challenge—but don’t worry, this isn’t about political speeches and closed door meetings. This is exactly the kind of high-octane, super powered thrill ride you’d expect from a book called The Ultimates!”

Then next week, in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #16, Humphries and artist Luke Ross, Steve Rogers accepts the position of President of The United States- and not a moment too soon! A deadly villain with a personal tie to the Ultimates is about to enact his endgame, one which promises to leave no hero unscathed. Now Captain America must find a way to safeguard this country both as a President and as a super hero—but can he do both?

“Captain America was created in 1941, but this is the first time he’s been made Commander in Chief. It’s an honor to write a landmark milestone for such an iconic character,” explained Humphries. “We’ve made a commitment in Ultimates to show how epic events have significant consequences. President Cap is no different. This will have a lasting impact on Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and the whole team.”

With its inception in 2000, the Ultimate Comics Universe reimagined the world’s most popular super heroes for a new generation and has been critically lauded for its bold, resonant stories. In particular, the reinterpretation of Captain America in Ultimates Vol.1 is considered a watershed moment for the character and remains one of Marvel’s top-selling collections. With the August 2011 introduction of Miles Morales, an African American and Hispanic character who became the new Spider-Man, the Ultimate Comics Universe again became a hot topic among media and comic fans alike. Now, acclaimed-creators Humphries and Tan begin the next major chapter in Ultimate Comics Universe history with the release of Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, giving readers a chance to see what happens when the Earth’s mightiest hero takes charge of the world’s greatest nation.

The biggest decision of Captain America’s life is coming tomorrow in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, the game-changing issue that fans can purchase at their local comic book store, on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop.

So seen any good movies lately? More on that in a week or so don’t want to spoil anything for those of you that have yet to see “it”. That said InvestComics has been calling “it” for about 5 years now. That’s what we do here, we say it, create it, and everyone else steals it!

Have you seen the latest InvestComics video comic book review show? It’s NOT for the faint of heart, there is a severe warning label that will be attached to each of these episodes. The show is called Booze, cooze and reviews; hosted by Amber. The basic premise of this hilarious take on comic book reviews is quite simple. Drink, drink, get annihilated, and review comics. The outcome is quite funny, the reviews are great and the video editing from Kristine is quite fun as well. There is a big warning label as far as language goes, PLEASE DO NOT WATCH/LISTEN TO THIS VIDEO IF YOU ARE EASLY OFFENDED. Go to the InvestComics You tube channel and check out the episode. OR click right HERE. If you’re looking for a “softer” side of comic reviews, FFFIC Episode number 43 is available too this week. Fantastic reviews as always from Shaun and Sebastian.

This week an Icon within the industry makes a return with the debut of Trio #1. IDW Publishing has nabbed John Byrne to lead the way with a new team. They are Rock, Paper and Scissors. Wow really? Okay let’s get beyond that for now. This doesn’t need to be said really, but we’ll say it anyway. John Byrne at one time was THE go to guy in the comic book industry. He was the one everyone was clamoring for. The big cheese if you will. Think McFarlane, Lee, Perez and you pretty much have an idea of how big Byrne was.

 

 

 

 

So where did it begin for our Iconic UK born penciler? Here’s the quick version. It began way back in 1973 with a little comic he did in college called ACA Comix #1. While a very nice collector’s item to own, it doesn’t account as his first published work. His first printed work would come in 1974 in Marvel’s giveaway called FOOM!, Issue number five to be precise. Later that same year, he did a 2 page story in Nightmare #20. His first color work was in Charlton Comics’ Eman #6. One year later John Byrne found himself within the clutches of the house of Ideas (no no, not InvestComics! The OTHER house of Ideas Marvel Comics.). Giant Size Dracula #5 was John’s first Marvel work. A backup story of course, but the rest is history folks! X-Men, Hulk, She-Hulk, Fantastic Four, Superman, Alpha Flight, Next-Men, all have the distinct indelible mark left from the legend known as John Byrne.

Moving from one legend to another, George Perez works his artistry on the cover of The New Teen Titans #21 (1982). This comic features the debut of a 16 page comic called Night Force. It also debuts the character Donovan Caine. He’s going to be making his first appearance in the new 52 in Night Force #3 this week.

A future legend Michael Bendis (which many may disagree about the legend status, but this is not a debate column, fight amongst yourselves!) has a new number one comic debuting this week. Takio #1 is aimed at the younger crowds. Lots of little tikes books coming out these days from both Marvel and DC. Check out the debut of Bendis’ (and Oemings’) Takio from the self titled original graphic novel from 2011.

Ultimate Comics The Ulimates #10 features a new creative team. Writer Sam Humphries is a part of the new team and one of his first works was from a free comic book day book called Mouse Guard (Archaia Comics).

Wolverine #306 marks the comeback of Dr. Rot. Where oh where have you been Dr. Rot? Doc first started his practice in Wolverine Weapon X #6.

DC’s Superboy #9 has a debut of an all new Warblade. Warblade first appeared in Image Comics Wildcats #1.

A couple of number one issues you should check out this week, IDW’s Night of 1,000 Wolves #1 and DC’s Vertigo Mystery Space #1.

….….and what’s up with Marvel’s solicit for Uncanny X-Force #25? “Landmark 25th issue”……Landmark? Really? That’s almost as bad as Rock, Paper and Scissors.

Invest wisely.

The Surprise Hit of the Summer Finds Its Perfect Match at Image Comics

Berkeley, CA – 16 August 2011 – You’ve read about it, you’ve heard about it, now it’s here. Up-and-coming writer Sam Humphries (CBGB, Fraggle Rock) and Steven Sanders (FIVE FISTS OF SCIENCE, Uncanny X-Men: The Heroic Age), provocative sci-fi one-shot OUR LOVE IS REAL is coming to Image Comics this November after capturing the attention of the comics industry over the summer.

Set in the not-too-distant future, OUR LOVE IS REAL is a bold story about the many odd forms that love can take. Originally self-published in limited quantities, Humphries and Sanders were eager to share their story with a wider audience following the torrent of critical accolades OUR LOVE IS REAL received from fans, the comics press and creators alike.

Here’s just a taste of what they’re saying:

“A splendidly-perverse and eye-poppingly gorgeous fistful of futuristic fun.”
— Jason Aaron, writer of Scalped, Wolverine, and Ghost Rider

“One of the funniest comics I’ve had the pleasure of reading in quite some time… 4 out of 5 stars.”
— Chad Nevett, Comic Book Resources

“One of the Top Ten Comics of July 2011…this is one of the most surprisingly original sci-fi stories we’ve ever read… a shocking, funny, and emotional read that will stick with you long after you put it down.”
— Alex Zalben, MTV Geek

“I strongly encourage you to check out this bravura creation from Steven Sanders and Sam Humphries.”
— Tom Pinchuk, Comic Vine

“It may shatter your doggone senses.”
— Caleb Goellner, Comics Alliance

“It is a social satire, as all the best science fiction is…it’s funny, it’s poignant, it’s clever, it’s intriguing…phones had been ringing off the hook and retailers have been desperately trying to order new copies…it’s a really fun comic book that could get quite a following.”
— Rich Johnston, Bleeding Cool

“A mix of neo-futuristic sci-fi with a love story that is both sexy and utterly heartfelt.”
— Casey Seijas, Wizard

“Already catching observers off-guard.”
— Albert Ching, Newsarama

“Impressive…dynamic.”
— Tim O’Shea, Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources

“It’s equal parts shocking and hilarious and the kind of out there thinking comics can do best.”
— Ryan K. Lindsay, The Weekly Crisis

“One of the more interesting comic book stories of the year…4.5 out of 5 stars.”
— Kyle Garret, Comics Bulletin


“The response to the book, even in limited release, has been nothing short of amazing,” said Humphries. “Image Comics has embraced our twisted little comic inside and out. We know we’ve found a great place to bring OUR LOVE IS REAL to a wider audience.”

“This is a unique book,” added Sanders. “We weren’t sure how it would be received. But we love it, and apparently a lot of other people do too! We can’t wait for everyone to get a chance to see it for themselves.”

In OUR LOVE IS REAL, the plantsexuals are rioting in the streets for equal rights, humans are falling in love with dogs, and crystals are much more than just jewelry! When a chance encounter on the job changes a riot cop’s life forever, he finds himself caught in a bizarre love triangle that blurs romance, crime, and lust beyond recognition.

OUR LOVE IS REAL (SEP110383), a uniquely formatted 8 x 8 24-page black and white sci-fi satire comic for $3.99, will be available for order in the September issue of Previews and goes on sale in stores November 2.
