Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for New Comic Releases on 10-2-13

The DC 3D madness is finally over! Rejoice and collect your monies in the aftermarket because interest will wane very quickly. In actuality it already has! Prices have been coming down at a rapid rate and if you haven’t sold yet, you may be late to the party. As already told here on InvestComics Hot Picks, you had to watch the 3D market very closely because of the hype surrounding the comics. The gimmick was going to be short lived as there will be a couple of those rare variant 3D’s that will survive the aftermath of the collapse. The best investments should be held for all of those first appearances pointed out during the 3D run here on InvestComics. Picking up a few of those first appearances should ensure that if a few of these villains bust out, make a comeback, a name for themselves, become the next ‘Bane’ or ‘Venom’ character for a major character, you will own that first appearance and be ahead of the curve!

Besides the sold out gimmick of the 3D covers, DC does in fact have a hit on their hands. Forever Evil is in fact hitting a home run with fans alike. Forever Evil (2013DC) #2 is completely sold out this week across the board. The prize this week will be the Black & white variant. Grab this; sell it on Ebay for a 25% return or possibly more very easily; immediately. Do not hold onto these comics folks. These are not life changing altering moments within the DC Universe, barring of course plotlines we are not aware of! There are some great storylines going on within these pages, but nothing is foreseen to change the market value or demand to sustain the trend upwards.

A trend in the comic book solicits market also continues however in Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #24 this week. The words uttered so many times “…nothing will be the same, WE MEAN IT!” have been spoken far too often, but we as fans eat it up! Check out what writer Robert Venditti will bring to the table. Oh yes and the solicit also makes another common reference; “Lanterns will die”. Looking forward to it!

Batman Black and White (2013) #2 will bring legendary artist Jim Steranko to a Bat book again. Mr. Steranko will provide the gorgeous cover for this wonderful new series this week. It’s amazing to note that this legend has never provided as much DC artistry over his career. He’s thought of more as a “Marvel” guy, but when he does pencil any DC hero/villain, people take notice! With Batman though, his first official Batman work came in 1998’s Batman Black & White hardcover. Hard to fathom that given the profound career, he added Batman to his resume in 1998! The Batman work came in form of a tip-plate within the hardcover. Awesome, amazing stuff here folks.

In wrapping up DC here, Movement (2013 DC) #5 will debut the group ‘Graveyard Faction-death for hire’. Two sold out Vertigo books come our way this Wednesday; Hinterkind (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 and Witching Hour (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1. The pleasant surprise here has to be the sold out Witching Hour #1. As a $7.99/70 pager’ all things point to the awesomeness of Vertigo. Even though the trend of a new book debuting with a $7.99 price tag, it usually tends to make some collectors/readers a little apprehensive, it doesn’t matter here though. Fans know this is going to rock! All 70 pages…..

Marvel Comics brings back a Marvel Knights Spidey book this week. Hooray! Check out the almost sold out regular cover Marvel Knights Spider-Man (2013) #1 this Wednesday (Variant cover sold out). The first Spider-Man Knights came in the 2004 by the same title and lasted only 22 issues. Maybe this time we’ll buck that trend and go longer! With writer Matt Kindt and artist Marco Rudy on board, it looks like a success already! And with a new Marvel Knights book, comes a new Marvel Max book too! What a great week! Take a look at Fantomex Max (2013) #1 miniseries at your local shop this week. It probably won’t disappoint. If this feeler goes over well, and fans demand more Fantomex, you better already own New X-Men #128 (2002). This would be the first appearance of Fantomex. Another three Marvel titles are on the cusp of sellouts and collectors should be put on alert. Captain America Living Legend (2013) #1 will be the highest alert. With writer Andy Diggle/artist Adi Granov on board and the introduction of a villain named Volkov, look for a possible aftermarket bump here. Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble (2013) #1 is based on the animated television show, but it’s the bonus Lego Marvel Comic within the extra sized issue here that has InvestComics intrigued. And finally from Marvel, any fan of Superior Spider-Man should probably take a look at All New X-Men Special (2013) #1 this Wednesday.

Here’s a quick list of sold out debut comics and number two comics coming your way this Wednesday. Bushido (2013 Image) #1, Shadow Now (2013 Dynamite) #1, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #2, Reality Check (2013 Image) #2, Grindhouse Doors Open At Midnight (2013) #1, Pirate Eye Murder at Ten Knots (2013) #0, Lady Rawhide (2013 Dynamite) #2, Occultist (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #2.

That’s it for this week. Check out some covers of the week below. Invest wisely.

  1. Glad Villains month is over, so hard to get any covers 3D or 2D here in Australia. I even had to help some of u speculators out by getting 2 covers I wanted for my personal collection off eBay lol

    Anyways as for this week, some books I like ain’t on this list.
    DC Comics Essentials Batman #1 for $1
    Star Wars #1 for $1
    And Walking Dead #1 in colour although its a little dearer then usual. (I kinda really like this one as a huge walking dead fan myself, I want to see it in colour)

  2. Hang on a minute 🙂 I just read a site before posting that last comment. Just finished reading a few others. I don’t think Walking Dead #1 gets released this week now.

What do you think? InvestComics would like to know.
