GI Joe #214 variant InvestComicsAmazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 – This comic are selling like hot cakes on Ebay right now. The variants are being bought up at a regular clip. The Pasqual Ferry, Adi Granov, and J. Scott Campbell variants are out favorite.

Groot #1 – The talking tree gets its own comic. Will the tree say more than “I am Groot” throughout? Look for awesome sales here as Groot gets his first solo series. Readers know from this past Friday; InvestComics Hot Picks, we pointed out to get Groot’s first appearance a year and a half before the movie. So that is way before any announcement of the team ever occurred. Fans that took note have cashed in. Do you still have a chance? Read the InvestComics Hot Picks #374 and find out.

G.I. Joe #214 – The death of Snake Eyes is causing quite a stir. Looks like Ebay sellers at the moment are holding off a bit from selling off. Look for a big supply and demand frenzy at first. Things will cool down rather quickly, so be a smart speculator here. 

Justice League #41 – Part one of the much anticipated Darkseid War. Yes there are epic story lines going on all over the place these days, but a Darkseid event is a must for any reader. A must. 

Nonplayer #2 – The number issue has already hit its fourth printing and is selling for as high as $60 for the variant. $120 for a graded 9.8. So what will issue number two do?

 

 

Be sure to check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #374 for more Hot Picks. Sometimes a list of 5 simply isn’t enough!

 

Invest wisely. Read comics.

A lot of number one issues coming out this week. Here are some of the DC books first;

Batman Beyond #1, this will be volume 5 number one. You know what that means? Five different times collectors have seen a number one issue pop up from Batman Beyond. That’s a lot. It kind of waters down the “premiere #1” issue deal a bit. That said, it doesn’t stop the high priced 1999 issue.  Anyways, Batman Beyond’s first appearance was in Batman Beyond #1 (1999). Bizarro #1, here’s an all ages book. Good to see DC is trying to get the little guys/gals back into comic books. Bizarro first appears in Superboy #68 (1958). And very funny variant here by Kyle Baker. Another all ages comic from DC; Bat-Mite #1. Count this reader in! And speculators, for you; Detective Comics #267 (1959). That’s the first appearance of Bat-Mite. One more thing, the variant is sold out. Midnighter #1 What will come of this series exactly? Who knows, looks cool though. Midnighter first appeared in Stormwatch #4 (1997).Written by Warren Ellis. Back in the 80’s the Omega Men team was awesome. Can they revisit that awesomeness with Omega Men #1? We will find out. Their first appearance is in Green Lantern #141 (1981). George Perez cover. Fantastic first appearance to have in your collection. Wonder Woman Annual #1 Check out what “old face” from the past shows back up.

Here is a rundown of some of the Marvel number one titles coming out on Wednesday.

With the new Marvel Universe on the horizon, we get more number one issues than we can handle. Or maybe we can handle them. Most would opt to just chill hitting the restart button, but we have Marvel and DC really shaking things up lately. All that said, Peter Parker will feel the wrath of the Secret Wars too. No one is safe. A safe bet is however, if there is a Spider-Man number one issue coming out, there will be a bazillion variant covers. That is so for the Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1 comic coming out this Wednesday. Marvel isn’t shy about these variant covers. Ten at last count. Probably more than that as you read this article. The standouts as far as variants go are; Pasqual Ferry, Adi Granov, and J. Scott Campbell. Yes they are all nice, but these are our favorites. Too many variants that will sell for an absorbent amount of monies and then taper off. It’s the same formula here. So what about the actual comic? The only thing that makes this or any crazy amount of variants worth chasing is if there is a major introduction (their daughter?) within the pages, otherwise what you have here is a bunch of hyperbole with no substance to sustain the pricing during the immediate aftermarket wave. So what about this daughter Peter and Mary have? Is this a new take on their lives? Certainly looks that way. Having a child in any relationship changes things a whole lot! Maybe that will be the sticking point on keeping this comic relevant 10 years from now. And from the looks of it, the daughter may possess some of daddy’s DNA down a few issues later. Are we surprised here really though? Lets see where Dan Slott and Adam Kubert bring us.

The popularity of a talking tree has reached epic proportions. Groot #1 gets its own series. Who would have ever thought that Tales To Astonish #13 (1960) would become an untouchable book? InvestComics of course that’s who! A year and a half before the Guardians of the Galaxy movie hit, InvestComics informed speculators to buy this book. Check out the article right HERE. This was even before the characters were announced to appear! These days it’s so high on the depth chart right now it’s insane. Does the book have anymore wiggle room (uptick) to warrant a profit if you’re a buyer? Possibly yes if you can somehow get a real good buy on one. Here’s why. Groot will appear in the next Guardians movie and possibly beyond to the Infinity Wars movies. The Avengers will need all the help they can get when it comes to dealing with Thanos in those movies, so it’s probably a safe bet that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be teaming up with the Avengers. So Groot could possibly appear in another 3 movies before all is said and done. Maybe the love affair with audiences gets Groot a solo movie? Who knows? Either way, all this means more upside for Tales to Astonish #13.

Armor Wars #1; This story originally ran back in Iron Man #225 (1987). The biggest difference between then and now is the Iron Gwen variant this Wednesday. Iron Gwen? Really? Future Imperfect #1 was an original story back in 1992. Writer Peter David, art/ink and cover art from George Perez. Peter David writes the story again this Wednesday, but pencils by Greg Land this time. Hulk extraordinaire artist Dale Keown lends a variant cover. The original X-Tinction storyline dates back to Uncanny X-Men #270 (1990). Jim Lee, Chris Claremont, and Scott Williams were all over this. Marvel brings back the story 25 years later in X-Tinction Agenda #1 with lots of variants and a beautiful Mike Deodato Jr. variant. Skottie Young fans rejoice, Skottie writes and pencils this new series based on the little marvel universe. Giant Size Little Marvel #1 will be a guaranteed fun time.

The next big death issue has arrived speculators. G.I. Joe #214 will be providing the aftermarket with some serious buzz. Here is the thing, do not hold onto this comic too long or you will miss the top of the sell here. Be mindful of the market, time it correctly, if you don’t you will be left holding a comic with a decreased value and no demand. The hype will mostly likely be a short lived one. Snake Eyes is a big character in the G.I. Joe circles, not in popular culture. This isn’t a Captain America death where you see some dude you’ve never seen at your comic shop buying five copies. Although this is more of a G.I Joe/comic book speculator book, it still will command attention. Be prepared, and be alert. 1 year from now this will be long forgotten. The story won’t be because it’s a fantastic one, it’s the hype that surrounds it right now.

Learn more about Darkseid’s daughter in Justice League #41 as the first part of the Darkseid War goes full throttle. And the introduction(s) of new villains may arrive in here. Be on top of this comic speculators! Great David Finch Joker variant too. DC has many “epic” things going on these days. Well, as does the “other guys” too, but this week sees the epic storyline “TRUTH” roll out in Action Comics #41. And oh yes, is that Superman’s new costume (Levi’s) on the cover? We forgot about that already. That’s not a good sign. That Green Arrow #41 Bill Sienkiewicz Joker variant is as stellar as is the Green Lantern #41 Joker variant by Ben Oliver.

InvestComics says this almost every week, but a reminder for the new readers coming on board; buy any of the new Star Wars comics. An introduction of any character sends the aftermarket into a frenzy and you stand to make a quick buck. Besides, the Star Wars comics are delivering some good stories anyway. Star Wars #6, Darth Vader #6 and Princess Leia #4 are due out.

As InvestComics has warned about Star Wars and new characters popping up, watch for the Secret Wars to do the same possibly. And what’s with Secret Wars #3 Dr. Gwendge variant cover? Yes, yes the Gwen craze that’s right. Has that not subsided some? Yet another female dominating character in the Marvel Universe; Superior Iron Man #9 sees Superior Iron Woman taking it to Stark. This intro can blow up quickly if the character has substance. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #6; the introduction of Girl Squirrel and the return of Hippo. Hippo first appeared in the ultra cool Dark Reign Sinister Spider-Man #1 (2009).

A new Image title coming this Wednesday from writer…..Rob Liefeld. The Covenant #1. Variant cover by Rob himself. Nonplayer #2 comes out with the first issue hitting its fourth printing already. This series is one to pick up and check out. Valiant has a hit on their hands with Dead Drop. The number one issue sold out, so expect good sales here for Dead Drop #2 as well. A well crafted comic with a great story and art.

Good to see that the Archie Comics crew is not superstitious at all. Archie #666 will be the last issue of its historic run and no fanfare of evil here, just “6” covers that all connect to make one “happy” image. The amazing talent of Dan Parent gets all of the cover credits too. That’s the right way to end the run. And Broken World #1 from Boom Studios looks like a good story, one to check out.

Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market, but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

 

Click the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on the books in this article.

Star Brand #1 (1986) Here’s a series that went no where fast. So fast in fact that issue number 19 was the last issue ; “number 19 in a 19 issue limited series.” Really?? Okay. This happened with almost all of the other titles as well when it came to Marvel’s New Universe imprint. Most  say “#32 of a 32 issue Limited Series.” on the top of the book. No lie, true story.

But even the creative firepower couldn’t save this series from its ultimate demise. John Romita Jr. does most of the art and a cover or two for about the first seven issues. Writer Roy Thomas on issue number seven, Keith Giffen art in issue number 9 with a Bob Wiacek cover, issue number ten features Mark Bagley Pencils, and then legend John Byrne takes over art and writing duties as of issue number eleven. And good luck finding that scarce last issue too.

Union Jack #1 (1998) Union Jack’s first solo series comic. Writer/artist and cover all by John Cassaday. When will a UK based character break out anyway? It will happen eventually (as InvestComics has said a while back), but here you have a great 3 part mini-series to read. One of the cool things about the Marvel Comics cover with issue number one is the wording “The Walking Dead”. That’s five years before the Kirkman book. Speaking of which…….

The Walking Dead #1 (1989) Are you aware there was a Walking Dead comic out 14 years prior to Kirkman’s Walking Dead? A four issue zombie horror comic. If you were, kudos to you. If not, now you’re in the know. The Walking Dead #1 from 1989 was put out by Aircel Comics and created by Jim Somerville. Issue number 3 features a Dale Keown cover! Sweet. Good luck finding any of these comics at your local shop.

Black Orchid (1988) Critically acclaimed 3 part series by artist Dave Mckean and writer Neil Gaiman.

Blade Runner (1982) With all of the talking going on regarding another Blade Runner movie, wouldn’t it be cool to get this comic in a 50 cent bin and have it signed/graded by Harrison Ford? A nice collectors item indeed. You’re welcome.

Deadpool meets Deathstroke

Click To Buy/Bid Superman/Batman Annual #1 Deathstroke meets Deadpool

InvestComics Checklist – Deathstroke.

Since the inception of InvestComics 10+ years ago, we have informed speculators about Deathstroke. At that time, following InvestComics’ guidance, the first appearance of Deathstroke could cost been a mere $45 for a collector. Now it’s a bit more, but you still may have some upside. Yes he’s already been exposed into the WB Arrow televison show world, but this character still has yet to make it to one more place; the big screen. And he will eventually. When he does, that first appearance with double/triple in value. He’s Marvel’s Deadpool/Punisher rolled into one. The assassin for hire is a total bad as* and DC Comics knows this. The explosiveness of this character brings nothing like DC has on film anywhere. Marvel already has, DC doesn’t. A Deathstroke on the big screen would be a hit. It’s already a hit on Arrow, but television doesn’t always translate to the speculative point in the comics market. Movies usually have a higher impact. Although pricing is a bit high in various places for Deathstroke’s first appearance, it’s still a buy. As a speculator, do your research and your shopping around.

Some Key Deathstroke comics:

The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) The first appearance of Deathstroke. Art by George Perez, cover by George Perez and written by Marv Wolfman. A classic comic and still a bull market here.

The New Teen Titans #9 (1981) Deathstroke didn’t come back for his second appearance until 7 issues later. An extremely undervalued book here.

Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) Part 3 of the Judas contract. This timeless comic features the first appearance of Nightwing and an early appearance of Deathstroke. Classic Perez cover.

Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 (1985) Another timeless classic here. It wasn’t until the fifth issue of this amazingly awesome story we saw an appearance of Deathstroke. George Perez/Marv Wolfman.

Wonder Woman #61 (1992) The same as the Hawkworld Annual book. A War of the Gods crossover book. When will Deathstroke make a regular appearance in the DC Universe other than appearing with so many other heroes and villains?

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

We begin this week with Infinity Gauntlet #1.The first appearance of Anwen Bakian and as the new Nova. Yet another strong female presence enters the realm of the Marvel universe. The original Infinity Gauntlet #1 took place in 1991. The 1991 Infinity Gauntlet was a fantastic read. As for the 2015 version, get the Adi Granov variant if you are speculating big on this character and want the most bang for your buck. Adi provides the new character front and center in this beautiful variant.

Here’s a quick free comic book speculating lesson from InvestComics regarding the influx of new female characters. Newsflash, not all first appearances (female OR male) will offer a large return within the aftermarket. Actually, some may not even have a return at all. Don’t be under this misconception that you will make money on every first appearance you buy. While we’re talking about the female character introductions, some of them are doomed to fail just like their male counterparts. Is there a possible quick buck to be made here? Maybe, probably so, but a short window may leave many stuck with a comic that everyone already has a heads up on. Don’t be misguided into believing that every single first appearance will be a hit in the aftermarket immediately following its release.

So the questions a speculator should be asking themselves regarding a first appearance of a character (female or male) are; What impact will this character have within the grand scheme of things? Will this character have a profound affect on another character(s)? Is there something completely different about them that we haven’t seen before? Does the character have a story to tell? Are they relatable? Is the origin too complex? Are they in for the long haul? Will this character get special attention with their own series? Will the company push this character too much where it seems desperate to push fans to like them, which in turn shows there is a lack of a fanbase not possibly existing really and more so just hype. Are they related to another hero/villain?; which could be a quick “wow who really cares moment?” (See Angela). Do they even look like a winner? There are so many mitigating factors that go into this, you must have the knowledge, expertize and presence in mind to be doing this for many years to get some speculating calls right on point.

The new Marvel way is the female character. They have made it abundantly clear that they want to make the female presence a strong one in their universe, which is absolutely fantastic. There will be ones that simply do not work folks, be prepared. But with all of the new female heroes being introduced, when will that big female villain be introduced and what will happen to the market then exactly? Will there be an influx of female villains coming in? Lets not kid ourselves here. Marvel likes money. So does DC. So do all companies. They should, they’re in business to put food on the table for their families. They will push the envelope as far as it needs to go to make the fanbase interested in buying their comics. If that means the new hot thing to do is hype up a bunch of new female based characters, then they will do so. Soon enough though, the female villains will arrive in droves too. Be prepared for that. Then it will become a common core overused marketing ploy. But again, not all will be successful. So any hyperbole from new speculators or inexperienced ones arriving on the scene remember this; true speculators do not lead to slaughter, they guide them to think. Know the difference here.

Click the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

Inhumans Attilan Rising #1 The first appearance of the Attilan land is in Fantastic Four #47 (1966). Important more so if you’re into first appearances of “land”. That said, Inhumans (as said here on InvestComics) will be huge in years to come. Does this mean that Attilan will gain some momentum in the aftermarket before the Inhumans become a household name in about 4 years? The way things are these days, probably yes. And only if Attilan is part of the Inhumans lure in the theater. But lest InvestComics remind you one more time, early Inhumans comics……buy buy buy.

The new Inferno comic hits this Wednesday. Inferno #1. The original Inferno story started (prologue) in Uncanny X-Men #239 (1988). It was a massive run in mostly all of the mutant books. It was a fun read then and it’ll probably be the same this time around as well.

The new Secret Wars 2099 #1 will be the first appearance of the new Avengers 2099. 2099 used to be a hot item back in the day. It ran its course and the whole love fest faded into obscurity. 2099 has appeared since yesteryear, but to no fanfare today as it once was. Maybe times will change and fans will except it once again. We’ll see.

Nova #31…….readers alert, surprise ending here. We love surprise endings!

Captain Canuck #1 was featured on the InvestComics free comic book day article in January 2015. Given the right creative team and guidance, Captain Canuck could be a hit. Having a David Finch variant helps to start things off too. There aren’t any of these variants available on Ebay right now. Hard one to get? Great variant though! His first appearance was in Captain Canuck #1 (1975).

Check out Fight Club 2 #1 from Dark Horse. At first glance, the Lee Bermejo variant looks like it has the Incredible Hulk on the cover. Seriously, check it out. Super cool right?

Indestructible Stingray #1; This IDW comic is going to be a good read. And just in case Stingray catches on, the first appearance was in Indestructible #1 (2013). Material #1 from Image Comics; a deep semi-political thought out comic. Very serious content in this book. Looks like an award winning Oscar movie put into comic book form. A new Avatar Press comic written by the legend/sometimes eccentric Alan Moore hits this Wednesday; Providence #1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #46 sold out variant by Alberto Ponticelli.

Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market, but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

 

Click the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on the books in this article.

 

Machine Man #1 (1984) This amazing 4 issue limited series was brought to us by the late great Herb Trimpe. Barry Windsor Smith handled all four of the “transformation” covers. Overall great comic.

Mephisto Vs. … #1 (1987) Mephisto wanted to fight everyone apparently back in the 80’s. So much so he got his own limited series. Each issue featured a different opponent. The battles included; Fantastic Four, X-Men, X-Factor and the Avengers. Al Milgrom writes. John Buscema art.

Akira #1 (1988) Akira was the first major manga series to ever hit at Marvel. 38 issues in all. Amazing storytelling and art in these comics. Writer Mary Jo Duffy lead the way here. Last 2 issues in this series (1996) had Contributors Dave Gibbons, Mark Texeira, Larry Hama, John Romita Sr., Joe Mad and Warren Ellis. Near mint copies of Akira books will run a little bit in the wallet, but well worth it.

Shatter #1 Special Edition (1985) The first all computer generated (Mac) digital print comic ever by First Comics (how appropriately named). Mike Saenz had all hands on deck with this “Mac” experiment. Art/inks/colors/letter/cover. When this comic came out, it was hot. Nowadays, well that’s a different story. One can purchase this comic for less than $2 on Ebay. Go ahead, click the link or comic, buy it, you’ll own a part of pop culture history.

Iron Man Crash (1988) Here we have the first all digital (Mac) graphic novel. This time from Marvel. Mike Saenz again had his hands all over the digital first, this time with William Bates lending a hand.

Batman Digital Justice (1990) As usual it seems, DC Comics took their time coming around. Joining the digital era 5 years after the first computer generated comic. DC went big though. 116 pages of computer generated mac art featuring Digital Batman. Batman in the digital world was the grandson of Commissioner Gordon. First and last appearance of Digital Batman.

Avengers #239 (1984) David Letterman’s 33 year run ended last night. What a run it has been. On a personal note; I still own recorded VHS tapes in my storage of this show back when I was going to school. I knew I couldn’t stay up that late so I set the VCR to record the show so I could watch it when I got home. What is a VHS tape and VCR? Google it. David Letterman’s first of many appearances in comic books happened right here. Written by Roger Stern, art by Al Milgrom. Cover collaboration by Milgrom and Joe Sinnott. A keeper for any David Letterman fan. So long Dave and thanks for making me laugh!

What more can be said about artist Jim Lee and his talent that hasn’t already been said? The same applies with Jim Lee as the previous InvestComics Creator Spotlights, his art is immediately recognizable. A style unto itself and many have tried to emulate since Jim blew up some 29 years ago. The man worked his way through the ranks at a quick steady pace. Only took him about 5 years to have complete creative control of one of Marvel’s flagship titles; the X-Men. With the release of X-Men #1 (1991), making that particular book the biggest selling comic of all time up until recently with the release of Marvel’s Star Wars #1 with a bazillion variant covers. Later on, he then went on to take over a couple of DC’s fanship characters; Batman and Superman. This dude is the real deal.

Take a look at the checklist below and buy this man’s work. It’s a thing of beauty as well as collecting a legend in the making.

Samurai Santa #1 (1986) First published comic work; Solson Publications.

The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition #17 (1987) First professional work regarding the big two. And it was with Marvel. Penciled one page, character Eel. This comic is NOT recognized as Lee’s first Marvel work because it’s not as sexy as the next book. Absolute nonsense.

Alpha Flight #51 (1987) This comic is dubbed as Jim’s first Marvel work when in actuality it really isn’t. The nonsense of “well he did only one character in the Handbook comic” is as bad as the “cameo” appearance of Wolverine. Wolverine was on a full page in #180 (his name is said too!) and Jim’s art is IN the Handbook comic. Let’s quickly analyze the ridiculousness of this. If Rembrandt painted a “small” picture and then painted another one that was “bigger” in size or “more” of a painting……which is his first work? Right?!

Alpha Flight #55 (1988) First cover art. Collaboration. With interior pencils.

For many years on this site, InvestComics has spoken about Marvel’s White Knight. Now he gets the Spotlight treatment. This checklist is the most extensive Moon Knight checklist on the internet. What you will find are many first appearances, key books, creator books, covers, etc. It’s absolutely a bookmark spot on your pc/phone.

So why Moon Knight? As said before, for many years InvestComics has spoken highly of this character and waiting for the moment that he breaks loose. InvestComics feels now is the time to give Moon Knight his due on the site and dedicate an entire article/checklist on him. We feel that MK is as close to breaking out as he’s ever been. A television announcement? A major motion picture announcement? Either way, it will be fantastic news for collectors and readers that follow Moon Knight.

A complex character that rivals DC’s Batman; hence “the White Knight”. Imagine if and possibly when Marvel Studios decides to go very dark, go in the direction of the Batman lure. They have their character right here. They have the history since 1975. The story is all there, the darkness, the emotion, the violence, the struggle. Let’s understand one thing here though. While the comparison is being made, he is not Batman. He never will be, so fanboys please relax. Batman is its own entity, we get that. What InvestComics is saying is Moon Knight possesses the dark ambiance as a character, just like Batman. And it would be amazing to see Marvel Studios take on a “Batman” like character. The grittiness of Moon Knight, that is like the Batman lure into moving pictures somehow. Be it T.V. or the big screen. It is time to get the Moon Knight character out there.

Marc Spector Moon Knight #50 (1993) Avengers appearance. First appearance of Manx.

Marc Spector Moon Knight #51 (1993) First appearance of Harlan Silverbird.

Marc Spector Moon Knight #55 (1993) The first definitive Moon Knight artist. Legend Bill Sienkiewicz was amazing, but Stephen Platt took the character look to a whole new level. This is the Miller Dark Knight, the McFarlane Spidey, the Simonson Thor, etc. The first defining artist moment in Moon Knight history is right here. The second comes later. Too bad Stephen wasn’t enough at the time to save this series from its demise a short time later. The first published work of Stephen Platt.

Avengers #501 (2004) Here is that “second artist” being referred to from earlier. David Finch first draws Moon Knight in this comic. He, like Platt will be looked at as the “go-to” when and if the Moon Knight makes it to television or the movies. Their art/style will be the foundation to which the character is based on. David Finch returns on this list again…..

Marvel Team-Up #3 (2005) Robert Kirkman, yes that one, writes a story here that includes Moon Knight in it (as filler). The headliner here is Dr. Strange. Kirkman writes a Dr. Strange story. Yep it happened. Let’s get back to Moon Knight……

Marvel Team-Up #7 (2005) In here, Robert Kirkman writes a Spider-Man/Moon Knight story.

Moon Knight #1 (2006) Artist David Finch begins the new series. That cover. Wow.

Star Wars #5  InvestComics is bullish on all Star Wars comics. Regular readers of this website already know this, but we are alerting all speculators to buy any of the new release Marvel Star Wars comics. An unannounced first appearance will cause a huge aftermarket frenzy due to speculation regarding the latest film(s) coming our way.

Spider-Verse #1 – The Spider-Gwen variant is hot right now on Ebay.

Secret Wars Battleworld #2 – This continuing epic Marvel event will be changing things in a huge way. As with Star Wars, be aware of possible first appearances here. It will have potential of a big aftermarket payday.

Deadpools Secret Secret Wars #1 – Deadpool’s movie is receiving good feedback with the leaked images and clips. This is a good thing for speculators to be able to unload their Deadpool comics. Fans are buying up the variants that accompany this book. 

A-Force #1 – A beautiful Adam Hughes variant has blown up on Ebay. Look for a short window to sell any A-Force comics. Potential of a good story/decent run will not equate to long term aftermarket friendliness. See InvestComics Hot Picks #372 for more details.

 

Invest wisely. Read comics.

Carpe Diem.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world.  Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty retailers may be included as well.

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

The New Titles Count Chart includes all titles that were invoiced by Diamond to retailers for the first time during the month and is not the official solicited title count for the month. Variant edition comic books and graphic novels at the same price point count as a single SKU. Variant edition comic books, lenticular covers, digital combo packs, and graphic novels at different price points count as separate SKUs for each edition.

New Release Comics on 5/20/15 (And back issues)

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on Ebay right now.

 

Marvel’s newest title will be hitting this Wednesday; A-Force #1. A much hyped all female Avengers team. With all of the female strong characters of late, this only seems fitting right? Here’s the thing, and this happens way too often. Whenever the big two (Marvel or DC) hit on something (characters/team) that works for them (monetarily), they go ahead and shove it down our throats. Deadpool, Lobo, Wolverine, Spider-Gwen, Ghost Rider, etc. It happens all the time. Appearances aplenty and number one issues as well. The  A-Force team will be shoved in our faces as “must like” material. Here’s newsflash, this A-Force love-fest is not going to last very long. Not being a negative Nancy, just a realist and a speculator. We hope to get proven wrong, but history is doomed to repeat itself here. Quickly, name one mega successful all female comic book team book. You can’t. You can probably rattle off a dozen female characters that are simply red hot right now though and have held their own for years and years. That’s where this all works. Just like some of their counterparts, they are fantastic solo acts or team players. An all female team is not what the fandom really wants. Yes some female comic character are out selling their counterparts easily and we get that the push to lure the girl into the hobby is possibly working, but it’s not going to work with A-Force. Again, prove us wrong, would love that. We want to see success here.
With all this said, the great part about A-Force #1 is we’re probably going to get an endearing story. An all female Avengers heroes team kicking butt should be a fun read. We also know we’re getting a ridiculous amount of variants too. The Adam Hughes variant is sold out.
So get this book because you like to read comics. You probably will not be able to speculate this book and make some serious cash on it. Maybe, possibly an immediate impact, but longer term? Simply don’t see it. Last time here, prove us wrong and sustain some readership/market value. Please. That Adam Hughes variant is nice though isn’t it?! Enjoy the great read.

More Secret Wars awesomeness with the release of Secret Wars Battleworld #2. Witness all of the knock em down drag them out fights in this comic. M.O.D.O.K. Evilness reaches new heights here. M.O.D.O.K.’s First appearance is in Tales of Suspense #94 (1967). Such a goofy looking character, and it’s brought to you by Stan Lee, Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Wow now that’s some firepower. For many years fans have clamored the presence of M.O.D.O.K. On the big screen and it just doesn’t seem feasible without looking completely goofy. Maybe, somehow Marvel figures it out, but seeing a huge head like that flying around would be a “jump the shark” type deal and not a productive one. More like a Dark Crystal or a muppet type feel, thus not taken seriously. Marvel Studios is probably aware of the possible vibe and this is why we’ll probably never see this character on screen.

The Marvel Ultimate universe is ending. What a ride is has been! Witness this tragic event in Ultimate End #1. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Mark Bagley. This is the same exact creative team that ushered in the Marvel Ultimate Universe 15 years ago with the first Ultimate comic ever; Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). Ultimate End #1 will be a story for the ages. No more Ultimate Universe. And we don’t really see it coming back from Marvel either. This won’t be a “take-back” from Marvel. We don’t see Marvel going back to the well anytime soon re-releasing Ultimate books or the universe. Marvel is merging the two universe’s in the Secret Wars/Battleworld story, so essentially they really don’t have a need to revisit the Ultimate universe later on down the line. Of course it can still happen because if Marvel wants it they’ll do it, but bringing back the Ultimate universe (ever) after the dust settles on this storyline would be a tremendous disappointment.

Planet Hulk #1 will be full of awesome this Wednesday. Regular readers here at InvestComics know that Planet Hulk and World War Hulk have been promoted here as enormous buys because of the movie speculation we were first on. No one else was informing speculators to buy The Incredible Hulk #92 (2006) back a few years ago, the first Planet Hulk. Also What If Planet Hulk #1 (2007). We still recommend these comic. Buy them. A surprise creative team backup story accompanies Planet Hulk #1, we look forward to the surprise!

Remember InvestComics informing everyone to buy anything Spider-Verse , and that first Spider-Gwen was in there which paid for all of your new comics and then some for a few months? Yeah, so now Spider-Verse is back; Spider-Verse #1 and this just means that there will be another chance for one of those first appearances or re-introductions to do well in the aftermarket. Stay close here with your ear to the ground. That all said, the Robert Rodriguez Spider-Gwen variant is sold out already. Best get your hands on one at your local shop or click on the link or comic cover here in this article to bid/buy now before the price escapes you.
