InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 10/1/14

Fourteen number one issues crack the InvestComics Hot Picks list this week. Some are great reads to pick up, some are good speculation material, and some (two) leave us scratching our heads a bit.

The speculator better be on to a few books this week. Cutter (2014 Image) #1 is sold out at Diamond. This interesting story will turn a few heads and probably command a few extra bucks in the aftermarket. Critical Hit (2014 Black Mask) #1 Midtown Comics variant it sold out. Look for the regular cover to follow suit very quick. Li’l Depressed Boy Supposed To Be There Too (2014 Image) #1 will be hitting the presses again for a second printing. It’s already sold out at the distributor. Lil Depressed Boy first appearance is in United Front #1 (2001 – Cartoon Militia). None available on Ebay….which could mean there are no people selling it, or that it’s a hard book to get.

Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier (2014) #1 will be sold out before you know it. It’s accompanied by a slew of variants that don’t exceed the $15 mark. Not bad if you’re in the market for a nice inexpensive variant to possibly flip. The only way you make anything on the variant(s) here is to score a 9.8 signature grade from CBCS. Winter Soldiers first appearance is Captain America #6 (Vol. 5) and happens to be a very solid book to own these days.

Speaking on topic about the Captain, a new Captain America will emerge in Captain America (2012 7th Series) #25. This is another comic that has many options as far as the variants are concerned. The same applies here as does the Winter Soldier comic coming out this week. Get a 9.8 and signature, you’d be able to flip it for a decent profit. Not much, but something.

The old Guardians of the Galaxy, the original team from 1969 gets some love this week; Guardians 3000 (2014) #1 will have the entire cast of yesteryear. As you well know Marvel Super-Heroes #18 features the first appearance of the first GOTG team. And boy do they look good in the upcoming title.

Grayson (2014 DC) #3 will introduce a KEY player into the DC Universe. Silver Surfer (2014 5th Series) #6 will introduce a new villain. Spider-Man 2099 (2014) #4 Deadpool variant is sold out.

Here are some others to check out this week. Gotham Academy (2014 DC) #1, Men of Wrath (2014) #1 from Marvel looks quite intriguing, a rare Dynamite Entertainment comic works its way in this week; Sherlock Holmes vs. Harry Houdini (2014 Dynamite) #1, Fearless Dawn Eye of the Beholder (2014) #1, Brides of Helheim (2014) #1, Last Born (2014 Black Mask) #1, and Green Lantern New Gods Godhead (2014) #1, which reminds me of a Thanos deal for some reason, but with Darkseid instead.

Two comic new releases will have comic fans scratching their heads this Wednesday. Granted we did with the news of it, now reality is about to hit and it has us saying “huh?” again. Lobo (2014 DC) #1 will feature the look Lobo. Why did we have to change the entire complexity of this character is beyond me, but I will remain positive until we see what the new Lobo brings to the table. But that said, Omega Men #3 (1983) will always be a comic to grab if you could. The same positive nature will not carry on to the new Thor series. Thor (2014 4th Series) #1 will bring a gender change in the character. This never really works. The gender change of an iconic figure such as Thor will not work in the long run. It hasn’t before and it won’t now. Any gender change of any major character never works. You imagine if we had the male version of Black Canary? Or Wonder Woman? Or Dagger? It just wouldn’t work. It never does. Here’s a huge reason that I think even Marvel KNOWS it’s silly to have Thor as a female lead. Out of the bazillion useless Thor #1 variants that will release on Wednesday, one will be a $300 Alex Ross variant. Every variant is a “Thor #1” variant, but Alex Ross’ has the 75th Anniversary incentive cover that shows no female gender Thor on the cover! Granted it’s a “75th Anniversary” variant, but it’s still HER book now. Whoever “HER” is though. Stay away from the variants if you like your money.

That’s it for this week. Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.
