Hot picks 3-10-10
A very cold winter here in Florida and a breezy week as far as Hot Picks go, but we forge ahead and find “some stuff” in this week’s cold front . As previously mentioned just a little while ago on InvestComics™ the week that was Peter Parker will be getting fired in Amazing Spider-Man #’s623/624. Look for this comic to garner a little bit of attention. Marvel knows how to tell a story and have it relate to the times we are currently living in. DC’s new Batman & Robin #10 has a blurb on the cover that says “The Return of Bruce Wayne Begins Here!” That with the sick Frank Quitely cover has enough to grab my attention! Wolverine: Mr. X will be a fun knock em’ down drag them out type fight comic. If you want to find Mr. X’s first appearance look for Wolverine #159 in the $1 bin at your LCS. Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #8 will be introducing a NEW hero into the Ultimate universe. Let’s see…New hero (check), Spider-Man comic (check), Brian Bendis attached to this book (check), Sold out on Thursday (check), Hot Pick of the week status (check).
Here are some more Hot Picks coming out this Wednesday……
See you all next week. Invest wisely.
