Hillbilly #3 – Eric Powell’s Hillbilly series is on fire. The first two issues sold out upon release and now the third has done the same.

Vikings Uprising #1 – This debut issue has about six variant covers and they are all sold out. Titan Comics with another hit comic on their hands.

Surgeon X #1 – New Image Comics series could be a sleeper. Drink your coffee, stay up on this one. 

X-O Manowar #50 – This anniversary issue is busting out with 64 pages. Various creators contribute. An all new X-O Manowar could emerge from this comic. Many, many variants available. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #443 article to see our favorites.

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: Batman The Cult #1 (1998) 9.8. Here is a classic Batman story told in four issues from two of the industries best in the biz. Writer Jim Starlin and artist Bernie Wrightson have their hands on this series. They also have their hand in actually signing the cover of this fabulous comic. A MERE $79.99 price tag for two legends of the industry signing the cover here. This is a beauty at that price, for this grade. Buy this now, here, before it’s gone forever. This will be a sure fire collectors item 25 years from now. Jim and Bernie are comic book industry legends because of their styles and the way they told their stories. The industry has learned and follows these two giants because of their amazing talents. This is an amazing book to own. Period.

Marvel readers be warned, New Avengers #16 will bring some big time twist and turns within the pages of this book on Wednesday.

InvestComics has a serious influence on the comic book market and industry. Sorry haters, but the truth be told. We mentioned the first issue of Spider-Man Deadpool #1 as a no-brainer speculative/read comic quite a while ago. We predicted a sell out. Naturally (and obviously) this happened. It’s on its 8th printing. As each issue came out we told fans to keep getting each issue. Not only because the series was a well written, action packed book, but the fact that each issue kept selling out. We stated this phrase; “…..each book in this series keeps selling out, so get on top of this…” Well guess who now uses that line as part of their “up-sell” of this series? Yes you got it, Marvel does! You’re welcome guys/gals! So with all of our gloating and patting ourselves on the back out of the way, we arrive to Spider-Man Deadpool #9 this week. Itsy-Bitsy first appeared in the last issue, find out who or what she’s about this coming Wednesday. As for the series? We’re still in the bull market here (bullish). Hey Marvel…….”We’re still in bull market mode regarding the Spider-Man Deadpool series”. It’s okay, you can use it if you’d like, just some credit this time maybe?? And hey Image Comics, the same to you! C’mon guys! Relax fanboys, just having fun here. Save your thread messages and emails, we never listen to what you have to say anyway.

Doctor Strange And The Sorcerers Supreme #1 will debut in late October. It will feature the first appearance of some characters on the new team Doctor Strange will put together. Marvel clued fans onto this info a while back, but it looks as though fans may get the first appearance(s) happening a bit earlier in this week’s Doctor Strange Annual #1. The Sorcerers Supreme team may appear in this book before their ‘official’ debut a few weeks later in late October.
Deadpool Annual #1 will feature his ‘Insufferable Pals’. Those pals will be Firestar and Iceman. This annual is obviously spoofing on the Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends #1 from 1981, which happens to feature the first appearance of Firestar in Marvel’s continuity.
Spider-Gwen #12 pits Spider-Gwen against the Punisher. Should be a fun fight! Go Frank! (Did we say that out loud?). A very cool B&W Baltimore Comic Con variant exist of the regular cover on Ebay. Be sure to check that cover out too when you click the link. 
Cosplay guru Riki ‘Riddle’ Lecotey has sold out her Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #12 variant cover. Kudos Riki!

Writer Dan Jurgens and artist Ryan Sook bring fans the new Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 title. The delayed Blue Beetle #1 comes out this week. This book is brought to us by Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (pencils).
A few weeks ago, readers learned more about the villain Harley Sinn. Find out who Harley Sinn actually is in the revealing of her identity in Harley Quinn And Her Gang Of Harleys #6.
Deathstroke writer Christopher Priest continues to make his title a go-to book each month. Deathstroke #3 brings Rose Wilson (The Ravager) front and center. Rose Wilson (Ravager) first appeared in Deathstroke The Terminator #15 (1992). A very affordable first appearance…..at the moment. And check out the awesome Shane Davis variant. The Ravager looks fantastic. And also, have you seen our Deathstroke checklist that came out in May 2015 on InvestComics? It’s quite the extensive list.

Not only will Valiant Entertainment’s X-O Manowar #50 be a spectacular 64 page anniversary issue, but the variant covers that will accompany this issue are gorgeous. We’ve narrowed down to four covers we love the most, but readers should, without a doubt get a copy of X-O Manowar #50 this Wednesday no matter which cover! Here are the four covers we dig the most; Kaare Andrews, Chip Zdarsky, Shane Davis and Phil Jimenez. The Phil Jimenez variant cover is an Amazing Spider-Man #583 homage. A cover he actually did himself! Valiant Entertainments new team book Generation Zero is making some noise. Readers should definitely be on top of Generation Zero #2. This series will gain momentum as the issues come out, be on top of this one.
Eric Powell continues to destroy any hope in getting first prints of his new hit series; Hillbilly. It looks like Hillbilly #3 will sell out by the time you reach the end of this article. Actually, nope, sold out already. Best get your copy off the rack if you want one.

The John Watkiss cover from Surgeon X #1 will turn some heads on the new release wall. Then look for readers to love it because Sara Kenney will deliver a unique comic unlike anything else on the market. A possible sleeper hit, be sure to pull this one off the rack. The best part? No variants, just one cover!

Writers Marguerite Bennett/Cameron Deordio, along with artist Audrey Mok bring the new Archie Comics title Josie And The Pussycats #1. Archie’s new television series will bring the ratings and the fans (and new fans) along with it. We think the Archie series will do extremely well, so you better have those Archie comics in order. We put out an Archie Comics checklist back in January of 2015. You can click HERE to get an early start on your Archie collection. Below you will see the covers for Archie Pals N Gals #23 (1962); first appearance of Josie and Josie And The Pussycats #45 (1969); First appearance of Josie and the Pussycats. Click em’, buy them if they are within your price range.

It’s an election year, so American Mythology publishing has your back. Check out Three Stooges Red White & Stooge #1, featuring a “Vote For…” cover for each stooge.

Another sleeper cell this week will be Sentient #1 (Hermes Press). Writer M. Zachary Sherman and artists Emmanuel Xerx/J. Brown on this one. More of the same here as with Surgeon X #1. A different type of story will bring interest from fans once word gets out. A sci-fi/thriller type story that’ll have you coming back.
Vikings Uprising #1 (Titan Comics) is completely sold out.

All-Star Batman #1 – We’re going to love reading this new Batman book. And we’re loving that Jock variant too!

Superwoman #1 – The very talented Phil Jimenez will write and draw this new Superwoman series. It’s going to be fantastic.

Deathstroke Rebirth #1 – Writer Christopher Priest starts things off with the Deathstroke Rebirth comic. This series will be a definite get each month. You must get this on your pull list.

Spider-Man Deadpool #8 – Marvel’s solicit says the same thing we’ve been saying since issue number one of this series. Buy it. Every issue sells out and we’ve told speculators this series is a no-brainer. Two of Disney’s biggest characters in their library. Put them together in a monthly team-up book and watch it fly off the shelf. And we predicted a while ago, you heard this HERE first….wait until they do a Spider-Man, Deapool, Spider-Gwen, Gwenpool team-up. Those variants will go for a heavy aftermarket premium.

Justice League #40

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: Justice League #40 (2015) 9.8. This modern comic is more about the new Justice League trailer and what the potential it could carry. The new trailer has Bruce Wayne building a team to defeat an evil like no one has ever seen. That evil, we hope, could be Darkseid. If Darkseid is the main villain (we hope), this comic possesses the first appearance of his daughter Grail (cameo). If the female presence continues to make their indelible mark within the comic book industry like they have never before, expect to possibly see Grail on the big screen. This comic will leave that $99.99 price tag long, long, long behind if Grail makes that leap to the big screen. A speculative move here indeed. You make the call.

We start off this week towards the speculative side of the hobby……
All-Star Batman #1 from DC Comics is one of those tough call speculator books. Not all all a question this comic will be a tremendous read (we hope anyway!). The book itself will bring sure-fire creative super power. Scott Snyder writes and John Romita Jr. will pencil. There will be other dynamic creators attached to this comic, but those two will get top billing. Scott Synder will be re-imagining Batman villains as we have never seen them before. That according to DC of course, don’t hold us to that. First up will be Two-Face. With all of the changes going on from DC from the past 10 years or so, will this be any different really? It’s a good possibility it will be “different”, but therein lay one of the issues as far as speculation goes. Just because something is different and touches off some fanboy nerve in a good way, it may drive the speculation market to max status. Here’s a question you must ask yourself, what happens once the romance wears off?
In recent memory one of the only books to sustain a monetary value and marketability with absolutely no redeeming comic book collector substance (first appearance, death, new character look, gender change character, etc) is Scott Synder/Greg Capullo Batman #1. We have stated this before in numerous articles, if you look at a graded copy, upper right hand corner, it’s completely blank. No first appearance, no appearances, no new costumes, nothing. That book still commands some decent aftermarket prices and it holds a fantastic beginning of a storybook run by two unbelievably talented creators, we get it (we think). Think about this. There have been some amazing Batman stories told over many, many decades by legends in the industry. Amazing runs of their own. Some of their books couldn’t even touch the Synder/Capullo Batman books as far as aftermarket pricing goes. Is that Batman #1 (Synder/Capullo) graded 9.8, which just sold for $300 a few days ago REALLY worth $300?? That’s $300, essential for a…..”Batman story”. Before you fanboys start whining and crying, we’re fans of Synder and Capullo, so stop getting your panties in a bunch. You’re going to learn here, don’t worry about when the next Scooby Doo/Harley Quinn team-up will happen. There are plenty of story driven comics throughout history that command some aftermarket monies. Miller’s Dark Knight and Gaiman’s Sandman, come to mind right away, but those stories were industry changing stories. We’re not saying Scott and Greg didn’t bring their Batman run to another level, but did they really change things in the long term? We’ll actually have to wait and see about this. Five years does not qualify a $300 book (in OUR opinion. Fanboys please sit down. Adults, please speak if you want). Neal Adams, Frank Miller, Alan Moore and a few others have literally changed the Batman landscape that still reverberates in today’s modern era. This market is modern top heavy, been that way for quite some time now. Be weary of what you are putting in to get out. Many have put too much into these modern books and are getting torched with red numbers. The Batman #1 book (and some others) have paid off, but more often than not, that “big/obvious” book winds up not meeting expectations for speculators. Wytches (Snyder + Jock = WOW) comes to mind rather quickly. So many more though. 
Which brings us back to All-Star Batman #1 this Wednesday. The creative firepower is there and the amazing variants are there. The big questions; will the story be interesting enough to compel demand? Will interest wane after the first read? The second issue? Will this be all hype and no punch? Will delays in release happen? Will there be a large print run? How many times have we seen an all-star creative team assembled and it turns out to be just “okay” or “good” or even a flop. It’s when collectors aren’t counting on it, case in point Batman #1 (Synder/Capullo) that it becomes a huge hit. Yes we know, we know, sit down fanboys, they were fabulous creators when they were announced for that Batman book, but no one would have predicted a 9.8 for $300 in late July 2016. No one.
So going full circle here and back to the beginning, we are definitely without a doubt looking forward to the new All-Star Batman comic. More so as a comic book fan and not as a speculator. We could be completely wrong on this, we’ve been wrong before, we accept that. But we think this may be one of those creative all-star teams with a good story to tell and that’s it. Which, at the end of the day is the goal anyway. As for the REAL speculative side regarding All-Star Batman #1 this Wednesday, one word…….Jock.

With the influx of female comic characters dominating the industry these days, DC will go back to the well this week. Superwoman #1 will be written and drawn by the great Phil Jimenez. We’re so on board here. We expect the new series to do well and we urge collectors to check it out. Because we really like the potential of the new Superwoman book, you may want to click on the following comic to see what is available; DC Comics Presents Annual #2 (1983). This is the first appearance of Superwoman. Cover from legend Gil Kane and pencils by Keith Pollard.

The New Super-Man #1 fared well and now the follow up; New Super-Man #2. Be sure to check out the constant introduction of new characters during this series.
InvestComics had Deathstroke’s first appearance in the very first issue of the InvestComics magazine more than 11 years ago. Back when it was more obtainable. A 9.8 first appearance sold for a mere $550 a couple of weeks ago. Now this Wednesday, Deathstroke Rebirth #1 hits and we’re stoked. It won’t be a $550 book, probably ever, but the story will kick all kinds of as*. Writer Christopher Priest will deliver, get this on your pull list. The Stephen Platt variant cover is fantastic and it makes us reflect back to the early nineties when Stephen first tackled his first Marvel book; Moon Knight #55 (1993). That was a huge hot book back then. A 9.8 Moon Knight #55 just sold for $189 in early July. Definitely worth mentioning here too, the regular Aco Deathstroke Rebirth #1 cover is phenomenal as well, but InvestComics has always spoken about Stephen Platt thru-out the years. We’re huge fans.
Speaking of covers, a tremendous Rafael Albuquerque variant cover; Detective Comics #938. Rafael is making a habit of cutting right into the InvestComics Hot Picks almost every week with an amazing variant cover. Keep that up sir, we certainly do not mind.

A bevy of creators will have a hand in All New All Different Avengers Annual #1. See if your favorite creator(s) are in there. Nice Alex Ross linking covers too.
Accused #1 will feature a Daredevil Fiona Staples variant cover.
When InvestComics informed readers that the Spider-Man Deadpool #1 comic and series was going to be one to get and follow, we were kinda right. Well not kinda, we were. Spider-Man Deadpool #8 comes out with Marvel touting the same thing we have been saying, that every issue sells out and you need to be on top of this series. Spider-Man Deadpool #1 is headed to its seventh printing. The two biggest characters within Disney’s arsenal each month in their own team-up book, it’s a no-brainer here.

Here are some Indie comics and number one issues to definitely check out on Wednesday.
A new book from writer Jonathan Hicks (East of West) will be on the shelf. Check out Black Monday Murders #1 from Image Comics.
Want a dark and twisted retelling of the Peter Pan story? Sure you do! Check out 451 Media Group’s Nvrlnd #1.

We gave our readers an alert on Henchgirl (Scout Comics), which turned out to be a very nice aftermarket series. Now we have been telling readers about the Norman title from Titan Comics every month. Each of the previous two issues have sold out and Norman #3 has sold out before Wednesday’s new comic book day. The series has proven to be an interest to fans and you best be on it.
Sons Of Anarchy Redwood Original #1 (Boom Studios) has show creator Kurt Sutter on board to supervise the making of this comic series. He wants to protect his property and provide the best SOA book for his fans. We get it and that’s awesome.
Starring Sonya Devereaux #1 (American Mythology) features a Walking Dead #1 variant cover.
Blue Hour #1 (Action Lab Entertainment). Suicide Squad Most Wanted El Diablo & Boomerang #1 (DC Comics).

Uncanny Inhumans #11 – Well, we’ll say it. We told you so. This comic is sold out across the board and has its aftermarket burners on. Look for some high prices on Ebay for those who did not get it on their pull list at their local comic shop. That’s unless you read the InvestComics Hot Picks #430 article and clicked a buy it now on Ebay. Prices bidding around $8 – $16 already. We told you to pick one up…….

Grayson Annual #3 – We also alerted Harley Quinn collectors that she’ll be appearing in this comic this week. Guess what? It’s sold out!

Spider-Gwen Annual #1 – Setting up some future story lines for Spider-Gwen happens right here. Spider-Gwen fans be on alert.

Captain Marvel #6 – As we said in the Hot Picks article, Marvel Comics seems to be setting up Carol Danvers as the premiere character within their universe. It may all start here. Just a speculative thought.

Deathstroke Annual #2 – A new villain named Balkan joins the fray.

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: New Gods #1 graded 7.0. With lots of talk regarding the New Gods making a possible appearance in the new Justice League movie, this comic is a nice pickup. The first appearances of Orion, Lightray, Metron, Kalibak, Highfather, New Genesis and Apokolips. Also with a Darkseid cameo. Story and cover art from Jack Kirby. A fantastic book for your collection. A buy it now price tag of only $85.

There is a very big hyper-machine running behind a new character getting their own book in a few months. His name is Mosaic. Mosaic #1 is being pushed by Marvel as the next big thing (character) since sliced bread, but InvestComics is not going to give into the hype….just yet. A comic coming this week will be the first appearance of that “hot” Marvel character Mosaic. We are 99.999999% sure that other speculation sites and wannabe speculators will tell you to buy this comic it’s going to be so HOT! Maybe it will be, right out of the gate, but there are so many mitigating factors going into this week’s Uncanny Inhumans #11. Will Mosaic play a key role in the Marvel Universe for years to come? Anyone remember Sentry? Will Mosaic play a key role in another characters life? A brother, a son, a reincarnation? Will Mosaic ‘click’ with the fans long term? See Spider-Gwen or Gwenpool, but not Silk as much. Will the character actually have substance to make him interesting enough for fans to come back and or demand to see him more within the Marvel U? It has taken literally decades for Werewolf By Night #32 (Moon Knight) to earn some respect. Partial thanks to InvestComics for pushing that particular book for the last 12 years. The basic point here is not to go all in by paying premium prices for a first appearance of Mosaic if you have no idea where this characters’ future lies within the Marvel U. The easiest call to make these days is the new female characters Marvel introduces. They seem to jump out and kick major as* in the aftermarket quick. The female counter parts however are a bit more touch and go sometimes. Mosaic is the next Marvel character to be pushed in an aggressive way, to which does not always equate to speculator gold. Sometimes it equates to a huge bust. We’ll have to do a wait and see here for a bit, but for now, Uncanny Inhumans #11 has all eyes on it this week. Buy a copy and make your own judgment as to whether or not YOU want to dig in with Mosaic. Don’t think too long though or you’ll have to wait for a second print, thus missing that possible easy flip. This comic will be completely sold out before new comic book day Wednesday.

Fans of Spider-Gwen may want to keep an eye out on the Spider-Gwen Annual #1 comic this week. Marvel is setting up Spider-Gwen’s near future right here.
We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. We informed readers that the Spider-Man Deadpool series was going to be huge. We told readers to pick up that Spider-Man Deadpool #1 issue, it’s now headed to it’s sixth printing. Check out the all-star issue this week; Spider-Man Deadpool #6.
Last month fanboys got their panties in a bunch because Steve Rogers uttered two very bad words at the end of his debut issue. Lets see if Captain America Steve Rogers #2 brings some clarity or sends the fanboys into more of a tizzy. Maybe Marvel will add fuel to the fire and have the fanboys daring to stop buying Marvel comic books! Been there, done that. Deep breath dudes, breathe.

The Amazing Spider-Man And Silk Spider(Fly) Effect #4 story will have both Spidey and Silk reminiscing about that fateful day in the science fair where they were both bit by the same spider. Ah, good ol’ times! And that Ryan Stegman cover is killer.
It looks as though Marvel is trying to put Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) front and center in their universe. Good deal, we dig it. Captain Marvel #6 will feature Carol in a defining type moment in her hero career. Be there to witness it.

Harley Quinn appearance alert! Harley will make an appearance in Grayson Annual #3.
Deathstroke Annual #2 will introduce a villain named Balkan.
Disclaimer; we’re not crapping on this series, but just stating facts via the social media non-presence and the overall quietness of fans. We warned speculators from the outset. Do not get too vested in the third installment. The colossal failure/delayed Dark Knight III hits its fifth issue (Dark Knight III The Master Race #5). Maybe sales are good for DC with this series, but fans are NOT really talking about the third go-around here. Delays have killed any momentum the series may have had. All that said, a Midtown Comics Greg Capullo variant looks snazzy! And of course you have the Jim Lee variant coming in at $550. Unbelievable to us how JUST a cover, a NEW comic, with the SAME insides/story as ANY of the other 10 variants commands $550. **The fanboy screams** “but it’s a 1 in 300” (or whatever the ratio is), we don’t care. Spend your money by clicking HERE (Bronze Age Comics) instead.

It’s just a question of time before Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s Jupiter’s Legacy really takes off right? So much potential here it’s unreal. Jupiter’s Legacy #1 (vol 2) ramps up things once again and we’re all invited for the ride. And check out the Rob Liefeld variant. Very Deadpool’ish of Rob, we love it!

A lot to choose from regarding the indie market this week. So many, but here are a few to definitely check out!
Action Lab Entertainment books to check out this Wednesday; Zoe Dare vs The Disasteroid #1 and Vampblade #5 (Danger Zone). The Vampblade #5 cover is a hilarious parody of the Rom character. A must see. Fantastic job here by Winston Young.
The awesome Eric Powell writes and draws Hillbilly #1 (Albatross Exploding).
Black Mask follows up their hit book; 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank with the second issue. They also hit fans with Jade Street Protection Services #1. Written by Katy Rex and art by Fabian Lelay.

Swamp Thing 1

Top 5 Pick of the week – Swamp Thing #1 – Click to Buy/Bid

Amazing Spider-Man #611 (2009) – The first appearance by Deadpool in a Spider-Man comic. A fantastic book to own since both of these characters are so popular and are starring in their first monthly team up comic. Furthermore, with the Deadpool character becoming an obvious main staple within the Marvel universe, a first team up comic with these two is an easy decision purchase to make for your collection. And that Young cover is becoming a classic as the years go by.

Spider-Man Deadpool #1 – This is the team up comic many Marvel fans have been clamoring for. It’s going to be a great ongoing title. Wait until they bring the Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool team up into the fray as we are predicting. Wow will this be a huge comic. And the Liefeld variant to go along with that team up? Yes, it’s going to be big. Well, we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but that Gamestop Spider-Man Deadpool variant is creating quite a stir in the aftermarket itself!

Howard The Duck #3 – Speaking of Gwenpool, last week InvestComics gave fans a heads up on this variant. There was some kind of delay in putting these out for sale. Now that they go on sale THIS week, they’re sold out! Good luck finding a copy at your local retailer. Click the link, get it on Ebay.

Doctor Strange Vol 4 #4 – Deadpool wins! Wins the most appearances in the InvestComics Top 5 list that is. Here he is again appearing on a random Doctor Strange variant.

Swamp Thing #1 – Swamp Thing gets another redo. Seems many DC Comics these days are, but that’s a conversation for another time. As said in the InvestComics Hot Picks article, Swamp Thing has always fared well for DC as far as longevity is concerned. This title should be no different then past success with writer Len Wein and artist Kelley Jones at the helm. Get your read on here, this is going to be awesome.

IC 100 Club Pick – Nova #1 (1976) – First appearance of Nova – Click To Buy It Now

Before we hit the Hot Picks this week, we wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! To bring in the New Year we’re going to debut a new feature within the Hot Picks articles. It will be called “The IC 100 Club”. This new feature will post a comic book that will be click-able to buy/bid on Ebay and cost $100 (or $99). We do not own/sell the comics we post about. Every click-able comic is from any/all Ebay sellers on Ebay that have the particular comic we feature within their inventory (the same applies to all of our articles – please see our disclaimer). The idea here is to point out a comic on Ebay that is affordable and has some substance/value to it within the $100 mark. This is a trial feature and we will probably expand on this feature as time goes on. As of right now, the InvestComics Facebook page already features a random spot called “InvestComics Ebay Find”. The feature on Facebook gives fans an opportunity to check out random comics we see fit and sharing. Maybe our IC 100 Club will expand on there? Maybe we will have an IC 50 Club pick too? Maybe a featured article on InvestComics? All in good time friends!
The first IC 100 Club book is Nova #1 (1976) graded 9.0. The first appearance of Nova. Grab this for $100 with free shipping. InvestComics has written about the Nova character for years and this book is a beauty. Maybe get it pressed and bump up the grade a bit? Either way, a 9.0 for $100 is a fine purchase. It’s a “Buy It Now”, so good luck!

Four Eyes Hearts of Fire #1 will continue where Four Eyes (2010) left off. The new release will be from the original 2008 team; Writter Joe Kelly and Pencils by Max Fiumara.
Gotta love the disturbingly eerie cover to IDW’s The Eighth Seal #2 (cover at the bottom of this article). Kudos to Travel Foreman here.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday.

Swamp Thing comics have always fared rather well for DC Comics. Many restarts/volumes lasting many years. One of which lasted 14 years. That’s quite an amazing feat to have any comic last that long. The original co-creator, legend Len Wein (writer) will be given the task of making Swamp Thing relevant in today’s crowded superhero genre. Swamp Thing #1 features Len as the writer and art from the great Kelley Jones. We think Swampy will succeed here, not only because of the tremendous talent on this book, but maybe because of the craving of something “different” within the comic book selection on the shelf from one of the “big 2”. We’re not saying there aren’t any assorted titles from DC or Marvel to choose from outside the costumed hero lure, but Swamp Thing is not your average everyday superhero comic.
A fantastic comic to possess in your collection is House of Secrets #92 (1971). Not only is this comic the first appearance of Swamp Thing, but it’s also Len Wein writing with another legend on pencils; Bernie Wrightson. What is there not to love about this comic? Seriously.

A-Force #1 gets a new number one issue after 6 months of it’s previous number one issue. In the July 2015 number one issue release, Singularity was introduced. She leads the team in the 2016 number one issue this coming Wednesday. Whew, got all that? The coolest thing about all of this? The ridiculously awesome N.W.A. A-Force #1 cover. Ahh, the good ol’ days!

The Vader Down crossover story concludes in Darth Vader #15.
A Deadpool variant cover for the new Doctor Strange Vol 4 #4 comic? Yep. A bit random no? Slow sales??

InvestComics spoke about Howard The Duck #3 (Vol 5) last week as the Marvel Hot Pick of the week. Read that article right HERE if you’d like. It was delayed, it comes out this week and guess what?? It’s sold out.
Two other delayed comics already touched on last week that will release THIS Wednesday; Obi-Wan and Anakin #1 and Rocket Raccoon and Groot #1.

Here is a copy and paste directly from the InvestComics Facebook page (You really really should get over and like our Facebook page. A lot of individual comic picks, contest announcements and interesting things happening over there!) from November 30th………..
The Spider-Man/Deadpool team-up comic will put two very successful characters together in one book every month. We will most likely see a Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool team-up within these pages too. Probably a Rob Liefeld variant or two as well. With all of that cool stuff waiting in the horizon, here’s the first team-up with Spider-Man and Deadpool for mega cheap on Ebay. X-Force #4 (1991).”
Now granted there are probably enough copies of this comic to fill up Yankees Stadium, but it’s probably close to if not maybe a little more/less than say a New Mutants #98 (1991) comic. Maybe you’ve heard of that comic? And let us stress here, in no way are we comparing the first appearance of Deadpool to the first time Spidey and Deadpool appear in the same comic, but X-Force #4 is a significant issue in regards to the history of these two characters. Another comic to buy would be Amazing Spider-Man #611 (2009). This comic features the first time Deadpool appears in a Spider-Man title. It might be the better buy even though it’s 19 years after they first met up in the X-Force book! It’s the first Spidey book and it probably has a lower print run than the 1991 X-Force book. A bit astonishing actually that it took 19 years for Deadpool to make it over into a Spidey book. Crazy right? 
Writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuiness will absolutely kill it with the new team-up title. As we also mentioned in our Facebook post, wait until the first Gwenpool/Spider-Gwen team-up hits. The comic book internet will explode. Especially the Rob Liefeld variant or the Robbi Rodriguez variant. It’s going to be big and we predict it will eventually happen in this title. Anyway you slice it (no pun intended) Spider-Man Deadpool #1 will be sold out very soon. One last thing, that Gamestop variant (pictured at the top of this article) is an instant classic. Only one available on Ebay right now.Probably many more to come, sit tight. 
Staying on topic for a moment here. Did the aftermarket go out of your range regarding that first appearance of Deadpool? Fear no more! Behold True Believers Deadpool #1! A reprint of New Mutants #98. The same cover and all too. Neato! (AW). Bet there will be less copies of this comic than the original 1991 version! Not many of these appearing on Ebay at the present time, once again, sit tight. They will be coming.
