InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 2-4-09
Marvel releases a couple of comics this week that should have collectors going to the $1 bins as well as the showcase wall at your local comic shop.
Marvel’s also releasing their third installment of a red hot series, 2 Ultimate heroes go at it in a new number one issue, a new team book and they do the old swap of male to female gender on a character that has been around for quite some time. So it seems to be a busy week for Marvel while DC comics release’s only 10 comics this week. Also, check out some Independents making the list.
Astonishing Tales Vol 2 # 1 Marvel brings back a comic that had some success back in the early 70’s. It looks like some good old comic book fun coming back into the fold in 2009. With the second go around here, Astonishing will be brought to you in a double sized every month with various artist and writers contributing to the comic. Here’s the hunch though, way back in 1974 Astonishing Tales # 25 gave birth to a Marvel character that has not been around the Universe in a way that he deserves. Many times Marvel has given some sort of rumblings on how they’d like to see Deathlok come back in the mix. Marvel just never had the right time or storyline to do so. What better way than to‘re-introduce’ him in his own title he was created in some 35 years later? InvestComics has been big on Astonishing Tales # 25 for a long time and now might be the time to start on the Deathlok bandwagon again. This character is destined to be a huge force in the Marvel Universe, get the first appearance at a good starting bid right now, you’ll be happy you did.
War Of Kings Darkhawk #1 The same semi-scenario is playing out here with Darkhawk as previously explained with Astonishing Tales. Big difference plays out with Darkhawk being a character that is sort of established already within the Marvel Universe. The second difference is that you could actually find Darkhawk # 1 in the dollar bins in some comic shops across your way. Marvel begins the push right here with Darkhawk. Will he be a force as Marvel hope’s he will be one day? At a dollar a piece for his first appearance, who cares if he does?
