InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 8/27/14

1973237

Ultimate Spider-Man #29

Wool was optioned for a movie. That prompted issue number to be sold out and with that, Wool (2014 Cryptozoic) #2 has sold out now too. Stay close to this series for now. Remember, just because a comic book was optioned does not mean anything will ever materialize. Many times the comic market has a knee jerk reaction to the news and then many are stuck with comics that are impossible to sell. The best we do get though are great stories to read.

This week Superman (2011 3rd Series) #34 sees the introduction of the villain known as Machinist. Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. are giving the fans what they want, some new life breathe into DC’s flagship title. Is this in fact a first appearance though or just a New 52 first appearance? The Machinist first appeared in Wildstorm #1 (2006).  Same dude? Probably not.

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast continues to garner attention. The latest edition; Outcast (2014 Image) #3 comes out this week. Issue one and two sold out. Look for issue three to follow that trend.

Last week I recommended Teen Titans #16 (1982), It’s the first appearance of Captain Carrot. I was having some fun and wanted to set a trend to make the book hot. This week I will revisit the wacky, but first let me make a point…….quite a few InvestComics Hot Picks ago I explained that Marvel’s Spider-Verse saga was all a basic ploy to see which solo spider books they can possibly get off the ground and sell. Spider-Verse will bring every single Spider-Man character ever front and center. I compiled a huge Spider-Verse list of the many faces of Spider-Man. It’s a list you’d probably want to keep handy given all of the new Spider characters we’ll see popping up or getting their own comic. Like the new Spider-Woman title. How about a new Peter Porker comic? Wait Peter Porker? Yes. Check out Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #29; Spider-Ham has taken over. So expect A LOT more Spidey books and take overs to occur moving onward towards Spider-Verse, before, during and after. Now let’s get back to the wacky stuff. Peter Porker first appeared in Marvel Tails Starring Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 (1982). The Ultimate Spider-Ham first appeared in Ultimate FF #5 (2014). Awesome! Let Spider-Verse begin! And click right HERE to check out that InvestComics Spider-Verse Checklist, some great hidden gems in there.

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #5 will focus on the character Cyborg. I have recommended DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) countless times throughout the years. This comic of course features the first appearance of the New Teen Titans and several new characters. It’s a very obtainable book, not scarce at all. The main reason for the prices to be where they are at. Cyborg first appeared in DCP #26 and he’s also going to be in the Superman vs. Batman film. Will we also get a Teen Titans spin off from this film besides the Justice League? Most likely yes, so buckle in and get ready for DC Comics Presents to become an even hotter book way down the line somewhere. It’s going to be a way for Warner Bros. to attract that younger core audience. The book is an absolute bargain right now with average RAW prices on Ebay going in the $60 range. A 9.2 graded sold for $135 and a 7.5 sold for $81. So here’s what you do. Buy yourself a high grade raw copy. Get George Perez and Marv Wolfman to sign it (get a witness). Grade it, and you have yourself a wonderful resale right now, but more so in the future.

DC Comics Presents #26 (1980) First Appearance of The New Teen Titans.

Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #16 will give a semi-Superman history lesson told by Kamandi. This history class won’t be a bore! Various artists contribute to the different Supermen throughout the years. Should be a great nostalgic look and read.

The Fox channel has a hit on their hands with the show Bob’s Burgers. Now that hit series will become a comic book for the first time; Bobs Burgers (2014) #1. Look for the Midtown Comics Exclusive for only $10. Get some of the cast to sign it. Have it witnessed of course and grade it. It’ll be a unique book to resell to a Bob’s Burgers fan.

Face Value #1 from Autism at Face Value brings the topic of autism front and center. Heroes with autism. It’s an important awareness comic that everyone should check out. If you’d like to learn more about autism and donate go right HERE to the Autism Research Institution.

Other comics you definitely need to check out this week are Wayward (2014 Image) #1, Pop (2014 Dark Horse) #1, Jaegir (2014) #0, Hero Cats (2014 Action Lab) #1, Brainstorm (2014) #1, Shinobi Ninja Princess (2014) #1, and Sundowners (2014) #1.

DaredevilYou hear that? You hear the screams in the distance? The whining? The crumbling of the walls? The collective sigh?

The internet may have finally broken. Yes Ben Affleck will be the new Batman in the Superman vs. Batman film. The simple answer to this news? So what? The drama has gotten to such a fever pitch that there is actually a petition to sign to have Mr. Affleck removed from the film. Really?? Is this so important that it warrants this type of dramatic reaction? Everyone really needs to calm down, seriously……

With all of the negative publicity that the news has received, InvestComics has taken the “Team Ben” approach. We love the underdog! So with that comes a fun Facebook page that is called Affleck as Batman I’m with Team Ben. If you are tired of the naysayers and you support the underdog (Ben Affleck) be sure to JOIN the Facebook page that InvestComics created. Everyone can post various meme’s, articles, or just comment about their feelings about the Warner Brothers hire. Good or bad. Join by clicking right HERE. Remember, have fun! Why so serious?

On the heels of this news came the announcement of Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Many of the aforementioned fans weighed in with this news as well, this time with more of a positive outlook. Bryan is said from multiple reports to have signed a 6 to 10 film deal. That’s a whole lotta Lex!

The winner of the signed Jimmy Palimiotti Fury #1 was Mike Villegas. Congratulations Mike! Be sure to sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out the next contest. This one is sweet!!

This week Marvel fans are treated to an introduction in Captain America (2012 7th Series) #10. Meet Godzola! Hmm, not that keen on the name, but we shall wait and see. The possible return of Binary happens in Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #15. If you feel so inclined to find Binary’s very first appearance, you will find it in Uncanny X-Men #164 (1982). This is the part of the historic Chris Claremont/Dave Cockrum run. Fast forwarding some 7 years later with Chris Claremont still at the helm, Uncanny X-Men #251 (1989) strikes one of the classic X covers to date. Wolverine nailed to the X. How about this week’s Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) #11 striking a resemblance? Marc Silvestri killed it back in 1989 and John Cassaday does a superb job this week.        

Batman Incorporated Special (2013 DC) #1 variant cover by Ethan Van Sciver is sold out. It would be a good idea to try and get your hands on that if possible. Bat-Cow will also make her solo debut here! Bat-Cow’s debut was in Tiny Titans #17 (2009) in case you were wondering.

….And speaking of sold out number one issues, Overtaken (2013 Aspen) #1 is teetering on a second run soon, as is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Hundred Penny Press Edition – Cover A Dan Duncan, Quantum And Woody #1 (3rd Printing – 1st printing recommended on InvestComics Hot Picks), and Arcane Secrets #1 (recommended last week on InvestComics Hot Picks).

That’s it for this week! Be sure to stay close because this week (maybe) the NEW contest will debut. Win a modern number one comic book, Hot series, signed!! Sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out first!

See you soon, Invest wisely.
