Welcome to InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 7-13-11.
Marvel – This week Marvel releases yet another re-launch in Captain America #1. Looks like this one will have somewhere in the range of 8 covers. Buy the Variant with the best ratio and sell it on Ebay next week when the movie hits. There will be a quick interest in the Cap books, but will die very soon thereafter.
Check out who Marvel’s hottest team is right now, Alpha Flight! Alpha Flight #2 with a great Puck cover will do well at the shops. If you want to invest in a great collector’s item, look for Uncanny X-Men #120. It came out in 1979 and cost only $100 (Comics Price Guide). The current “mini-series” will do one of two things. 1, it will go longer than the slated 7 issues (continue). Or 2, it will end at issue number 7 only to start up as a regular series with a new number one issue. Add this up with a very good possibility of an Alpha Flight movie coming one day and all of a sudden that $100 doesn’t seem like much does it?
FF #6 eyes the return of Black Bolt! BB’s first appearance is a very affordable $360 (Comics Price Guide) from Fantastic Four #45 1965. That beautiful Jack Kirby cover alone is worth the price of this book.
Black Panther The Man Without fear #521 debuts American Panther. That cover makes BP look like a bad as* so check out this debut.
Well the Ultimate Spider-Man is dead. Now one of the first elements within the grieving process begins. This part may fall into the denial or depression category, and money in Marvel’s pocket, which may leave you depressed! Ultimate Comics Fallout #1 focuses in on the end of Ultimate Spidey and the beginning of the New Ultimate Universe. Yes, acceptance.
DC continues their onslaught of Flashpoint with several more books to check out this week. Booster Gold #46, Emperor Aquaman #2, Deathstroke and the Curse of the Ravager #2, and Citizen Cold #2. Also on the path of DC’s onslaught, Green Lantern’s War of GL’s wraps up with Green Lantern #67 and check out some aftermath within the pages of Green Lantern Corps #61.
