The DC solicit reads something like this ‘J. Michael Straczynski dives into the DC Universe at last.’ Well if DC was paying attention they would have realized that this is not the first time he has jumped into the pool. Although DC makes it seem like he hasn’t been here before, the fact is he has. 1987 was
the year J.M. made his debut with the DC Universe, not 2009. A book by the title of Teen Titans Spotlight #13 is not only his first DC work but his first comic book work. Grab this little nugget for only $5. Great buy and hold here.

We’ll focus on only 2 of them. Get Giant Sized Creatures Featuring Werewolf #1 for the first Tigra coming in at only $30. Not a bad price for a comic that is 35 years old. Marvel Team Up #95 is the first Mockingbird which comes in at only $3. 




The Marvels Project #1  Witness the origin of
the Marvel Universe brought to you by the creators who killed Captain America
(he’s back now) Steve Epting and Ed Brubaker. Do yourself a favor here and grab a variant or variants because they will be going for a premium for a while. Get them graded to make an absolute killing in return funds. A 9.8 or higher here will command some nice cash.


Batman & Robin #3  Red hot series continues
and shows no signs of slowing down.

Teams are rearranged, teams are no longer, a cosmic enemy to the likes we have never seen. All of this plus more! Oh yes and a western comic. Hot Picks Bangs away this week.

warofkingsascension4of4.gifdarkhawk1.gifWar of Kings Ascension #4  In this last issue of the Woka cosmic epic, Darkhawk manages to become the most hated cosmic dude out there. Since Marvel is making Darkhawk such a front and center character, why not get his first appearance in Darkhawk #1 from 1991 in a 1 dollar long box someplace? 



justicesocietyofamerica29.gifJustice Society of America #29  Lots of changes
happening in this issue to the JSA team as well as the Creative team. The new lineup looks a little like this, the writing duties are now Bill Willingham and
Matthew Sturges’ and the artwork gets handed off to Jesus Merino. A little
shakeup to the JSA team will take hold in this issue too. Sounds like a good
jumping on point.

The Kid rides again! Find the first Bronze Age in the original series with # 142 for only $20 and if you really feel liking spending some cash, get
