Domino #1 – Gail Simone writes this bad as* new series for Marvel. Look for this comic to trend big within the social media outlets and the aftermarket on Ebay to pop a bit regarding the variant covers. Writer Gail Simone brings it every single time on any book she writes. Domino will be the answer to DC’s Harley, but an obviously vastly different character altogether. More in the vain of popularity. David Baldeon will take care of the art duties. It’s Domino’s time now…..
Haunted High-Ons  – This indie comic from Source Point Press is sold out on the distributor level. Writer Dirk Manning and artist Alessandro De Fornassari.
Champions #19 – A possible intro of a new hero. 
Exiles #1 – The first Exiles series from 2001 went a 100 issue run. Not too shabby. The number one issue here will introduce readers to the new Valkyrie. Creators Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodriguez.
Captain America #700 – Marvel introduces us to KING Captain America.

Despicable Deadpool #298 promises to carry a whole mess of villains in this action packed ‘go kill Deadpool, there’s a bounty on his head for $20 million’.
Champions #19 gives way to ‘the birth of a new hero’. This according to Marvel, so who knows what this may mean exactly.
If there was a spot here for the comic that’ll trend the most this week, Domino #1 would win that spot this week. Why? Well, three reasons. One, she’s a bad as* character. Two, she’s appearing in the new Deadpool movie. Three, she’s a bad as*. Well, maybe two reasons, but hey, get your own website if you want to list more reasons. Big collector dispute for a while as to where Domino first appeared. Was it New Mutants #98? X-Force #1? X-Force #4? X-Force #8? Marvel Age #102? Oh where oh where can art thou be? Well, the grading companies, not the hobbyist, settled the dispute and listed the ‘REAL’, yes, CGC actually lists ‘The REAL….’ On their upper right-hand notes, but that’s another chat some other time. So, the REAL first appearance of Domino is………(drum roll please!)…….X-Force #11 (1992). That long winded explanation was completely unnecessary, but fun nonetheless. Domino #1 brought to you by the writer Gail Simone and artist David Baldeon.
Marvel debuted the original Exiles #1 back in 2001. The series lasted seven years and 100 issues. That’s a nice run. Marvel will try their hand with a new run with Exiles #1 this Wednesday. This number one issue will introduce the new Valkyrie. Creators Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodriguez.

It seems every week now one of Marvel’s original characters is hitting a milestone issue. Considering the fact many of them came out at the same time and the original numbering coming back, so yea, makes some sense. This week Marvel celebrates Captain America #700. That’s some serious numbering. And of course, many variants to choose from here, but it looks as though Marvel wants to ‘crown’ Captain America with a new name. ‘KING’ Captain America. No seriously, no joke. April fools is long gone.
Is Star Wars Thrawn #3 the intro of Arihnda Pryce in comics?

DC introduces a new team to their library this Wednesday. Immortal Men #1. An all star creative team will keep interest on this comic this week. Watch to see if the word gets out on this being an interesting team to follow via social media and chatter at your local comic shop. James Tynion IV writes and Jim Lee handles the pencils.
Part one ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ in Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #42.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 7-14-10

1aasolarmanGet ready to look through the back issue’s and the wall of your local comic shop this week. Hot Picks has plenty for you to look for. Plus The Invest Network gives you a rundown of what you might have missed this past week.


Hot Picks 7-14-10 









This week, InvestComics Hot Picks will have you going to the back issues bins and the wall of your local comic shop. As you can tell by the Slideshow picture on top of the site for the Hot Picks 7-14-10, Solar Man of the Atom gets the top billing.







Anyone remember Valiant comics? Jim Shooter? Okay if you don’t, let InvestComics tell you that the 1aasolarman1Valiant brand back in the early 90’s was probably the hottest comics to get your hands on. Jim Shooter (Founder of Valiant alongside Bob Layton) created great storytelling combined with great art. It was an awesome time to be reading comics, but unfortunately, the speculative market crashed and took Valiant with it. Those were back in the days that certain investors thought they’d buy comics and sell them to put their children through college. Thank goodness those days are long gone, and a new, resourceful, wiser collector has come along. So with the New Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom #1 from Dark Horse coming out this week from none other than Jim Shooter himself, there stands to reason that this comic will be hot and sell out very quickly. Let’s go back in the time machine and check out some books that you should be picking up along with the Dark Horse #1 issue. The first obvious choice here is the Doctor’s first appearance which is from Doctor Solar, Man of The Atom #1(Gold Key 1962). The Comics Price has this comic at $300. An extremely nice bargain, when (not if) this Dark Horse comic heats up. Set your sights next on the 1991 Valiant comic that drops the ‘Doctor’ in its’ title. Solar, Man of The Atom #1 from Valiant goes for $10.

1aaTheMightyCrusaders1_1965_85Dark Horse will be setting the stage for more comebacks of the very popular Valiant comic line with Magnus Robot Fighter and Turok, Son of Stone. So why not get a jump here and get the original comics now?  1963 Gold Key, Magnus, Robot Fighter 4000 AD comes in at the $400 mark according to the Comics Price Turok, Son of Stone (Four Color 596 -Dell 1954) has a price tag (CBG) of $1000. Now the Valiant comics are less expense but not the bargain that the originals are set at right now. Here is a quick rundown of the Valiant’s that you should be seeking right now. Magnus, Robot Fighter #0 (1991) $50, Magnus, Robot Fighter #1 (1991) $10, Magnus, Robot Fighter #12 (1st Turok in Valiant) $12, and finally Turok, Dinosaur Hunter #1 (1993) $10. (NOTE) All of prices shown on InvestComics™ are current market prices courtesy of Comics Price So that’s the quick list that should be on your radar. Be warned, delay too long in getting any of these and the Valiant comics will become scarce again, and the older original first appearances will be a little further out of reach.

1aaMC11aaFlyman31_1stmightycrusaders_1965_25DC reaches back into the past as well this week. Mighty Crusaders #1 will be a new take on a team from the original Red Circle line. 1965 Fly Man #31 is the first appearance of The Mighty Crusaders. This comic in NM condition goes for $70. The Mighty Crusaders #1, also from 1965 is priced at $85. Although the new Mighty Crusaders will fare well in the market, do not expect a major increase of interest in the market for the older books. The better buy here are the Gold Key books previously mentioned. The Jim Shooter/Dark Horse comics will probably attract the interest of investors more so than the DC Crusaders.

1aaxforceSexandViolence11aanewmutants98_1991_80With the release of Marvel’s X-Force Sex and Violence #1, there is a character that will star alongside Wolverine named Domino. You have to go all the way back to 1991 (yes well it’s “way back issue” theme week, c’mon now) to catch a glimpse of this beauty. An issue that could arguable be one of the most sought after comics in recent memory. New Mutants #98, yes it has that 1st appearance of that Deadpool guy, but it also has a first look at Domino. Here’s the thing. Domino was portrayed by “Copycat” in that issue, so it’s not technically her first appearance. Okay so let’s move on to find her next appearance. X-Force #8(1992 – $2.50), there you go that’s her right on the cover (again). This too will not be her “first appearance”. You see, that was a flashback thingy issue, so no dice on that Domino. Okay so 1aaxforce8_flashback_1992_2501aaxforce11_1stdomino_FULL_1992_2501aaxmenorigins_deadpool1let’s try X-Force #11, that’s her (once again) in some deep stuff with Deadpool on the front cover this time. This, this would be her first full appearance. This comic could be yours today for only $2.50! Oh forgot to mention, a CGC 9.9 New Mutants #98 in November 2009 sold for $12,250. If you want to see the full story from Comics Price Guide, click right here. If you want to buy a copy at your local shop, you’d find one in the $80 range. If you think you have a 10.0, well do you really need to be told what to do?  Speaking of Deadpool, do check out X-Men Origins Deadpool #1. The issue promises to reveal a bit more on Deadpool. Even if it’s not the real deal origin reveals, it’s still going to be a great read.

1aauncannyxmen201_1986_INKER_1stmodernage1stbabycable_281aauncxmen2671aauncannyxmen1_whilceportacioUncanny X-Men The Heroic Age #1 will be brought to you by Whilce Portacio. Just in case you missed it, he did a 10 for the Pros™ spot for InvestComics™. Click here to check that out. Whilce is no stranger to the X-Men. His very first stint on the X-Men came 24 years ago. Yes that’s correct, 24 years ago. The calculation adds up to 1986 on Uncanny X-Men #201. The issue would become Whilce’s first work on an X-Men book, as an Inker only. This issue also happens to be the 1st Cable baby, as well as the first Modern Age X-Men comic. All of this adds up to $28 in today’s market. It wasn’t until 4 years later he got a crack at the inside of the X-Men book in Uncanny X-Men #267. Whilce does the cover art and the pencils here. Whilce went on to do countless X titles across the board, but these 2 X-Men comics are the crème de la crème when it comes to Portacio X books.

3 independents make the Hot Picks this week. The most fun will be found in America’s favorite comic book guy in Comic Book Guy The Comic Book #1. This will be the first of a five part series. It will be very surprising not to see this comic do well in the sales department. Cry for Dawn artist Joseph Linsner (who also has a 10 for the Pros™ spot, right here) gives us a new Dawn story; Dawn Not to Touch the Earth. And finally the police officer on steroids Officer Downe from Image comics looks like fun.
