The Immortal Hulk #49 – This series is about to come to a close, next issue. It’ll be an 80-page comic book. When is the last time a Marvel Comics fan has seen an 80-pager? A rarity indeed. The Immortal Hulk series has been an unbelievable ride for both the reader and the speculator. So many ups and downs for the reader, and the speculator, well, they just cashed in. A variant from Joe Bennett pays homage to Todd McFarlane’s Amazing Spider-Man #328 cover from 1990 this Wednesday. That Spidey book was a hot item during the speculation boom in the 90’s. It’s an affordable comic these days. Raw copies on eBay selling around the $15-$25 range, while a 9.8 CGC sold for $197 on July 4th. Check out the side-by-side comparison of the original 1990 and 2021 covers. Who did it better?
Spirits Of Vengeance Spirit Rider #1 – Here is a Marvel character introduced five years ago, Kushala, in Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme #1, debuting in her own series. The first appearance here already goes for decent bucks. Look for an immediate curiosity for the new comic this week, thus a sell-out, creating an unwarranted buzz in the aftermarket. Validity has to factor in in order to sustain its asking price. If the character brings a dynamic/interest we haven’t seen before, expect things to stick for a bit. If we get a good story, but a weak character origin/background, we’ll see a short life for Kushala. Although, Although, with the current situation within the comic book modern market, anything and everything seems to be popping. First appearances that have no right for its asking price, so who knows really? This comic could take off and we’d be wrong. We’ve been wrong before!
Skybound X #5 – If you haven’t been paying attention, InvestComics has recommended the previous four issues of this series. Each one basically introduces a new character. In issue five, guess what? You guessed right! A new story/character from Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard, Secrets.
Joker Presents A Puzzlebox #1 – A new Joker story. Narrated by the Clown Prince himself.
The Me You Love In The Dark #1 – Here is the sleeper hit of the week. This one will hit hard, better be on top of it. Sneaking in through the back door while everyone is checking out the Joker, Spidey, Lasher, etc. Writer Skottie Young and artist Jorge Corona. This comic will sell out quickly. Collectors have a nice variant cover list to choose from too. A rare occurrence with the variants here, most of the covers are on point. No duds. Long titled books seem to be a thing these days and they all wind up becoming big hits. Something Is Killing The Children, The Nice House On The Lake, etc. The one thing in common with the long titled books is the genre it is hitting. The Horror genre. Is this the beginning of the horror comic speculation market regarding the back issues? Maybe. It was a hot market many years ago. Bernie Wrightson anyone? Oh, and here is the hashtag for this comic #tmylitd. Lots of letters.
Avengers #47 – The World War She-Hulk story continues and hints of her turning red are dropped. Does that mean she’s extra mad?
Silk #5 – More origin revelations from the world of Silk. Have you seen our Insta 5 interview with the writer of this series; Maurene Goo? Check that out right HERE. If that doesn’t work for you, head on over to our instagram page via your phone @trending_pop_culture.
Extreme Carnage Lasher #1 – Marvel is claiming the “birth of a new symbiote” in this comic. Do they mean Lasher? Because he/it first appeared in Venom Lethal Protector #5 in 1993. So, maybe fans are getting a NEW symbiote for real? If a new Symbiote is in fact introduced in this issue, best keep an eye on it.
Lucky Devil #1 – New Dark Horse Comics series from writer Cullen Bunn. A few years ago, Cullen was the Donny Cates of today. What happened with that clout? So strange how things shift in this industry.
Deadpool Black, White, & Blood #1 – So many of these three-color books coming out now. Here, Deadpool gets the three-color treatment.
Not All Robots #1 – A story of robots replacing humans in the workforce. A families robot named Razorball is building something in the garage that resembles something of malicious behavior. Something they think is made to kill them all. This story falls under the sci-fi satire comic department. New series from AWA Publishing. Writer Mark Russell and artist Mike Deodato Jr.
Trover Saves The Universe #1 – Rick and Morty fans are treated to a new series from writer Tessa Stone.
