InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 5/21/14

If you haven’t joined the InvestComics group on Facebook: Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society), you really should. There are some real collectors giving their advice on the market, giving new books to hunt down, and talking comics in general. Come join Gary, Aaron, Jeremy, Cliff, Paul, and many others as they sound off and help everyone get an edge on the spec market! Click the above link for an invite.

A few things you should check out on the InvestComics Ebay page. The sold out Walking Dead #127 is available; A CGC Signature Series (J. Scott Campbell) Variant Superior Spider-Man #29 has been reduced. Get this before it’s gobbled up. And a Superior Spider-Man #30, marking the return of Peter Parker. Go check out the auctions and bid away! Click HERE to go now.

There are a few comics for the speculator to definitely check out this week.

One of the first books that should be on your radar is MPH (2014 Image) #1. There happens to be a rare occurrence with this book. It was picked up by a Hollywood producer, who’s credits consist of the Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Red to name a few. This marks a time within the comic book genre that a comic book pre-release has been optioned for a movie. What does this mean to the collector? Well it probably means that MPH will be sold out and going for a few bucks on Ebay. So if you see it on the shelf at your local comic shop, get it and reap the benefits.

Invincible (2003) #111 will begin an all-new direction and Image Comics will let comic collectors know it. Look at all of the number one numbers sprawled out all over that cover. It seems more of a mock to the DC/Marvel guys/gals, but still a new direction nonetheless. A definite pick up because it’s completely sold out on the distributor level. So I guess the number one thingy works!  It’s also available in a super cool sketch cover. Do note too that InvestComics has been saying for years that Invincible will be huge one day. Be it a cartoon, movie, and or a television show, but this character will have a big breakout one day and you better be prepared.

The hot series Saga looks like it will heat up again with Saga (2012 Image) #19. All new characters and new storyline will bring renewed interest to this already hot title. This comic is not available for reorder, it’s sold out.

Marvel Comics will bring back a team from 1981 this week. Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends! Although it’s not solicited that way, it’s still the team from 1981. It does something about their “amazing friendship”, but we get it. The team consisted of Spidey, Iceman, and Firestar. Amazing X-Men (2013) #7 will star the team and if you’re interested, the first appearance of this team happened in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends #1 (1981). Deadpool (2012 3rd Series) Annual #2 will have Wade playing dress-up. Dressing up as Spidey. That’s always fun. Maybe he’ll make the ultra InvestComics Spider-Verse Checklist right HERE!

Justice League (2011) #30 will have all sorts of cool things going on in it. New team, new villain, and it feels like a fun read. The new Batman ’66 (2013 DC) #11 will feature just about every Batman ever. That should be fun too!

Indestructible (2013 IDW) #6 will introduce a new villain. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary Special (2014) #1 will be a nice book to pick up. It’s chock full of various artist contributing to the likes of TMNT. The thing to do with this particular comic is to get both Eastman and Laird’s signature on it (CGC witness of course) and grade it. It will bring many happy returns to you.

Warlord of Oz (2014) #1 will bring the Wizard of Oz unto another whole new level as only Zenescope can. It’s just about to reach the sold out status at the distributor. Although Zenescope puts out a fantastic product, the spec market is never too kind. The turnover value is never that good if at all actually. That said, they put out some great stories!

There are some Independent comics that you may want to pull off the new wall this week. Ordinary (2014) #1 is not only sold out, but it might be one of those that gets some Hollywood looks.  Two more comics to possibly look at the same way are Last Broadcast (2014 Boom) #1 and Henchmen (2014) #1. Henchmen #1 is already sold out.

The rest of the pot; Legend of Bold Riley (2014) #1 (sold out), Itty Bitty Bunnies In Rainbow Pixie Candy Land (2014) #1, and Littlest Pet Shop (2014 IDW) #1.

 

Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.
