Brian K. Vaughan will be returning to the comic book scene this week with a new ongoing series. InvestComics suggests that you check out You Tube’s Famous Faces & Funnies video’s regarding the new comic. Very funny videos featuring FFFIC’s very own Shaun Sorenson, Sebastian Piccione and Famous Faces & Funnies comic store owner Rick Shea.
Saga #1 from Image Comics will come with 40+ pages and no ads at a nice easy price of $2.99. Okay so you get all of these pages from a premiere writer in industry, a solicit that mentions “Star Wars action that collides with Game of Thrones”, written by Brian K. Vaughn, what more do you need here? This is a no brainer folks.
Brian K. Vaughn is well known for his epic comic series from Vertigo; Y The Last Man. If you’re looking for a nice collector’s item, the number one issue will cost you about $40. But buy the trade if you want to read the best written comic material in some time. A nice collector’s piece to own from Brian would be one of his first published works. Marvel’s Tales From the Age of Apocalypse #2 from 1996 would be the one! This comic should (unfortunately) be found in one of those 50 cent boxes at your local shop. Pick this up and brag to your friends that you own Brian’s first work.
Brian (unfortunately) was a part of one of the biggest errors to ever occur in comic book history back in 1998. Wolverine #131 had an anti-Semitism word that rocked the comic book industry. Brian did NOT have anything to do with this error, but Marvel quickly retracted the comic and reissued the correct wording. The comic commanded some serious cash in the aftermarket after word got out about the error, but cooled down tremendously over time. The error book is only $6 these days.Marvel Comics will milk the new Avengers movie for all it’s worth with a new Avengers title Avengers Assemble #1. Will the big “reveal” happen that everyone suspects in Battle Scars #5? If you don’t know what that may be, pick up a copy and found out!
DC’s Suicide Squad #7 gives the reader the origin of Harley Quinn. Her first appearance of course is in Batman Harley Quinn from 1999. Vertigo will offer up an interesting look into politics, intrigue, and aliens. Yes it’s an election year folks! Saucer Country #1, sounds like fun!
See you soon. Invest wisely.
