Alpha Flight #1

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: Alpha Flight #1 (1983) 9.6. This is the classic John Bryne Alpha Flight #1 from 1983. It features the first appearance of Puck and Marrina, as well as the origin of Alpha Flight. It has a buy it now price of only $46.75. Not a bad price at all for a 9.6. 

Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading.

Deathstroke #1 volume four begins this Wednesday. Look for Deathstroke fans to flock to this series as writer Christopher Priest will bring in new readers as well.
John Constantine will return this week; Hellblazer #1. Writer Simon Oliver and artist Moritat bring the new story.
Jaime Reyes, A.K.A. Blue Beetle will get his own series starting this Wednesday. Jaime’s first appearances as himself and as BB are very easy finds and extremely easy on the wallet too. Infinite Crisis #3 (2006) is the first appearance of Jaime Reyes. It takes Reyes two issues to get his gear together and in Infinite Crisis #5 (2006) he first appears as Blue Beetle. The creative team of Blue Beetle Rebirth #1 consist of legend Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (art).
A disturbingly awesome Steve Dillon cover on Sixpack And Dogwelder Hard-Traveling Heroz #1 peeks our interest on what the inside may bring. Writer Garth Ennis and artist John McCrea return to their Section Eight creation. Garth and John first created Six-Pack back in 1996 – Hitman #9. Dogwelder(2) first appeared in Convergence Harley Quinn #2 (2015).

DC warns readers to prepare themselves for the last page in Detective Comics #939. Check it out and no reading at the new release comics wall! Get out da way!
The H.I.V.E. Queen plans on getting under the Teen Titans’ nerves in Teen Titans #23. In a long line of new 52 characters and new female comic characters, H.I.V.E. Queen is kinda neat. Check out her first appearance in Superman #21 (2013). We’re not too sure if that issue is a cameo or not, so be sure to check out Superman #22 (2013) as well. The Superman #22 Kenneth Rocafort cover rocks too!

It’s always a good thing to be alerted that Spider-Man will fight Venom. So here’s your alert. Venom Space Knight #11; Spidey vs. Venom. Has Spidey fought the “Space Knight” Venom though? Is this a first?
Deadpool #17 features the villain Madcap. The Deadpool comics have a knack of reviving comic characters from the past no one either cared too much for or forgot about altogether. So with that said, Madcap’s first appearance was in Captain America #307 (1985).

InvestComics informed our readers about Scout Comics’ Once Our Land #1 a few weeks ago and it sold out right after our article was released. An immediate aftermarket sensation and Once Our Land #2 will be no exception. Watch as this issue goes into immediate demand as well this week.
From Chapter House Publishing this week comes Northguard #1. Coming from the pages of their other Canadian hero Captain Canuck. To find Northguard’s very first appearance though, you’d have to go all the way back to 1984’s New Triumph Northguard #1 from Matrix Graphic Series. There’s a few available on Ebay.

Comic book writer extraordinaire; Greg Pak, turns up a new western style comic; Kingsway West #1. Get this comic from Dark Horse Publishing. Art by Mirko Colak.

Netflix recently announced that Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher will make his way onto the Daredevil series. Good news for comic fans! The fans have responded well and we decided it was time for a Punisher checklist.

As always, there will be comics that did not make the list. No big deal. If you have something to share or add to the list, please free to do so below.

Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974) The first appearance and with the classic cover from Gil Kane, John Romita Sr. and Gaspar Saladino.

Amazing Spider-Man #134 (1974) The second appearance of the Punisher and the first appearance of the Tarantula.

Power Man Annual #1 (1976) Frank Castle is mentioned outside of a Spider-Man comic. Chris Claremont writes.

Amazing Spider-Man #162 (1976) The first appearance of the villain Jigsaw. He’ll go on to become one of Frank Castle’s main adversaries.

Marvel Tales #106 (1979) The very first comic reprint of Punisher’s first appearance with the original cover from Spidey #129. The first of many many Punisher origin reprints throughout the years.

Captain America #241 (1980) The first time Punisher appears in a comic other than a Spidey book in the Marvel Universe. An early Punisher appearance and classic too. The first comic cover the Punisher graces that is not Spider-Man related. Bob McLeod and Frank Miller cover.

Daredevil #181 (1982) The first appearance in the Daredevil title. This comic has it all. The death of Elektra, Bullseye appearance, Frank Miller writes, art, and cover. As explained in the Creator Spotlight: Frank Miller; Netflix already announced the Punisher will be making his way into the Daredevil series. This book here is all kinds of awesome already and any collector should already own one. Because of the characters and probable story line on the Netflix show, it would be wise to get one if you don’t have one yet……BUT that said, on the flip side, there are way way too many copies of this comic available. Being too accessible puts it in the “New Mutants #98” category. So many copies, way overpriced. Be smart.

SINISTER DEXTER Comes to IDW!

SINISTER DEXTER Comes to IDW!

2000 AD’s Deadly Duo Finally Comes to America!

tumblr_mn7natp7Cy1s0pt79o1_1280

San Diego, CA (May 24, 2013) –It was announced today that the exploits of 2000 AD’s Finnigan “Finny” Sinister and Ramone “Ray” Dexter will be hitting American shores when the long-running world of SINISTER DEXTER is reprinted by IDW in 2014! The pair of futuristic “gun sharks”—read: hit men—will be roaring in hot from Downlode, the European mega-city they call home, and they’ll be bringing an unbelievable cast of characters with them! From the original stories written by Dan Abnett and drawn by Andy Clarke, SINISTER DEXTER chronicles a vibrant, madcap world of futuristic intrigue and action. Deadly ninjas, acrobatic flying car chases, shape-shifting robot assassins, a devious Yakuza? All in a day’s work, dear reader. All in a day’s work.
 
‘”With its deft mix of black comedy and gritty urban action, the exploits of Sinister Dexter have remained a popular mainstay in 2000 AD for the past 17 years,” said 2000 AD’s Editor-in-Chief Matt Smith. “With IDW reprinting a selection of their tales, I hope a whole new audience is going to enjoy meeting the gun-lovin’ criminals.”
 
“I’m happy to expand our relationship 2000 AD,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “It’s been a pleasure working with the guys there, and even moreso because the books that we’re producing together are such fun things to expose to this market in an even grander way. Abnett and Clarke’s Sinister Dexter stories are gritty, crazy, and action-packed bursts of adrenaline and I can’t wait to set them loose among American comic readers.”
 
“IDW have demonstrated a real passion for 2000 AD’s stories and we’re delighted to develop our relationship with them further,” said Ben Smith, Publishing Manager for 2000 AD and Rebellion. “It’s fantastic to see the amazing work of two such significant creators as Dan and Andy set to reach even more readers.”
 
While specific plans have yet to be announced, it’s certain that between the thousands of pages of explosively excellent material, there are more than a few worthwhile collections to be had!

About IDW
IDW is an award-winning publisher of comic books, graphic novels and trade paperbacks, based in San Diego, California. Renowned for its diverse catalog of licensed and independent titles, IDW publishes some of the most successful and popular titles in the industry, including: Hasbro’s The TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY; Paramount’s Star Trek; Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; 2000AD’s Judge Dredd; The Rocketeer; Toho’s Godzilla; Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons; HBO’s True Blood; and the Eisner-Award winning Locke & Key series, created by best-selling author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. IDW is also home to the Library of American Comics imprint, which publishes classic comic reprints, and Yoe! Books, a partnership with Yoe! Studio.
IDW’s critically- and fan-acclaimed series are continually moving into new mediums. Currently, Warner Brothers and Barry Sonnenfeld are attached to adapt LORE into a feature film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Disney are creating a feature film based on World War Robot, with Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes and Sony bringing Zombies vs. Robots to film.

About 2000 AD and Rebellion

2000 AD is the Eisner-nominated, multi-award winning 32 page, British weekly anthology – an explosive cocktail of sci-fi and fantasy, infused with irony and wry black humour. Home of iconic characters such as Judge Dredd, Halo Jones, Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper, over the last 35 years it has launched the careers of some of the top names in global comics, including Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, Brian Bolland, Steve Dillon, Jock, and Peter Milligan.
 
2000 AD, its monthly sister publication The Judge Dredd Megazine, and its extensive range of graphic novels are available to buy online, through a dedicated iPad app, from major magazine retailers in the UK and Europe, and from all good comic stores in the US.

MARVEL NOW teases “Lightning”

When you hear “LIGHTNING” in terms of Marvel Comics, several people come to mind. Thor. Storm. Living Lightning. But, you also think THUNDERBOLTS, with their tag line, JUSTICE LIKE LIGHTNING.  Could that be what Marvel is teasing here? A new Thunderbolts? The old one did morph into DARK AVENGERS, and the old T-Bolts are being weened out of the title.  It has been said that Daniel Way will be doing a team book. It’s also been said that Punisher will be joining a team, and Dillon has a history with him. Plus, Day and Deadpool go ::ahem:: “way” back.  Thoughts?

The Future of Marvel NOW! Is Lightning.

Daniel Way.

Steve Dillon.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 1-02-09

Looks like Marvel is making the War Machine push a little early with the sequel to Iron Man not coming out for quite some time…… 

 

 

You can bet though that War Machine will be making his mark felt up until then. Jim Rhodes made his appearance in the first flick to set up for the War Machine to probably make his appearance in the second go around. 

War Machine #1

ironman_284warmachine.jpgHere are 2 comic books that have flown under the radar for a little while now. With the new War Machine # 1 issue coming this week, you should really already have these comics in your collection. InvestComics recommended these 2 comic books a while ago and is recommending them again! If War machine heats up, look for these comics to heat up fast! You should pick these up ASAP before the demand supersedes the supply. Don’t say IC didn’t warn you!

Punisher War Zone #4  Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon return to do a weekly 6 part storyline. The arc will be a sequel to the classic tale that they originally teamed up for ‘Welcome Back Frank’. Welcome back Garth and Steve, now make it worth our time.
