InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 4-8-09






Marvel goes to the future (2099) and red hot past (Noir) this week, as a Marvel character is about to break out in a very Cosmic way. DC brings some past back this week too. Click into this weeks Hot Picks! 


daredevilnoir11.gifDaredevil Noir #1  Marvel has a great series going here, so they’re putting all of their flagship characters into the Noir style comics. All success all the time with this series, so the problem begins when they put out the Ms. Marvel Noir comic. Watering something good down is not too far out of the realm for Marvel. If Marvel keeps to the flagships with the Noir deal, you’re good to go on a nice asset(s).



War of Kings: Ascension #1 (of 4)  Darkhawk has been featured a few times in the past few weeks. The number one issue from 1991 should be in your collection by now. If it’s not, you’re going to miss a good deal here. Darkhawk is about to break out in a very huge way. Marvel is about to make Darkhawk a colossal force in the cosmic universe. Why are they choosing Darkhawk you ask? Well why not?





Dark Reign: Hawkeye #1  Who doesn’t like Hawkeye? He’s everyone’s favorite archer! This week brings Hawkeye to his own four issue miniseries. This is not the first time the bow and arrow dude got his own mini. Check out his very first mini from 1983. It’s a fun mini and an affordable one too. 



spiderman209911992.giftimestorm200920991of4.gifTimestorm 2009/2099 #1 Back in 1992 Marvel introduced us all to the 2099 Universe. It was a fun deal. Now they bring back 2099 in 2009. Get on board with the first 2099 Universe release ever with Spider-Man 2099. If Timestorm decides to take off, you’ll have the first appearance all tucked away already. 




firstissuespecial8.jpgWarlord #1  When last year’s San Diego Con wrapped up, there was an article right here on InvestComics (it’s still on here in the Market Talk section) that spoke about this Warlord comic. So what I’m going to do is just bring you that short article right here for you to read. Sound good? Now read it and then buy it. Here’s the short snippet on from year…….Mike Grell is coming back to the DC fold. It was his imprint on the character Warlord that made the warrior stick around for 133 issues and 6 annuals starting back in the late 1970’s. In the spring of 2009 DC will be going back to Mr. Grell to create his magic once again with Warlord. Easy equation here, get Warlord’s first appearance with a pick up of First Issue Special # 8. The not so easy equation is finding a good copy of it. Warlord will be a hit once again and you do not want to miss out on this STILL affordable first appearance. 


exiles12001.gifExiles #1  Marvel goes back into the archives again, this time to the year 2001. Exiles first run can be picked up for very cheap.





Solomon Gundy #2  Nothing that special here except that 2 villians that have been around for an extremely long time in the DC Universe meet up and fight for the first time. Who doesn’t like a good fight? It’s Gundy vs. Bizzaro. Ding ding, Gundy wins! (It’s his comic, he should win right?) 




Wolverine Weapon X #1  Might be a bunch of the same old, but be prepared for this comic to sell out quickly. Fans love Logan. Maybe waiting on the Deadpool Weapon XI # 1 is going to be the better deal. No it’s not planned yet, but it will be. 




All New Savage She Hulk #1 (of4)  Not too sure why Marvel is doing this one. That red hair, those knee pads, the one shoulder pad……don’t think I get this one at all actually. On second thought, this has fail written all over it. I’ve been wrong before, but this looks outright silly. 









See you all next week.

Invest Wisely.
