Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading. Go back to the other places selling you the farm. This is NOT the place for you. We’re here to have fun and not lie to you. Thank you and enjoy!

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details). 

IC 100 Club Pick: Swamp Thing #7 9.2 (1973). Last week we found a high grade Swamp Thing signed by legend Bernie Wrightson. This week we revisit Swamp Thing with issue number seven graded at 9.2. The highlights of this particular comic; The first meeting ever between Batman and Swamp Thing drawn by Bernie Wrightson. Fans of Bernie know that he is an amazing Batman artist. His Batman: The Cult series with Jim Starlin is a classic. A high grade first meeting done by a creative legend for only $99.

With all of the new DC Rebirth comics and Marvel relaunching so many titles as well, a collector has to keep on top of the number one books as far as first appearances go. It’s happening quite often. One of these new players can bust out in a big way, so as always, be on alert.

Wonder Woman fans and comic fans will be treated to an awesome book this week. Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1 will be a who’s who in the creative industry within these pages. Variants galore (Jim Lee! Sweet.), creators galore, new stories, and DC states that there will be creators that have never illustrated Wonder Woman in a comic before, but will do so for the first time here. A steep $7.99 price tag may keep some away, but a definite pick up for us.
Flash #9 cover pays homage to the classic Flash #123 (1961). Original cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson. The Wednesday cover is by Carmine Di Giandomenico. What’s the odds of having two Carmine’s like that? Probably slim, but obviously possible.
A new Batman Beyond #1 from writer Dan Jurgens and artist Bernard Chang finds its way to a shelf near you. This number one makes its sixth volume debut. That’s a lot of number one debuts right? How about another sixth volume number one this week? Teen Titans #1 is also entering that six time debut issue this Wednesday.

From a sixth volume we go to a second volume. Detective Comics #943 may have a first appearance. Be on the look out for that. Rafael Albuquerque supplies a great second cover (B).
Speaking of covers, check out the Aco cover on Deathstroke #5. We love it.
A new DC Vigilante comic will be one to read this week; Vigilante Southland #1. We can’t help but reminisce about the first Vigilante series in the early 80’s that started off with writer Marv Wolfman and artist Keith Pollard in Vigilante #1 (1983). It lasted fifty issues with writer Paul Kupperberg and penciler Steve Erwin ending the series with an amazing story. Comic readers should definitely check out this short fifty issue series. Be prepared for an ending to this series as to none other in Vigilante #50. Click HERE to check out all the Vigilante comics available from all sellers on Ebay. Great series. We hope this Wednesday Gary Phillips (writer) and Elena Casagrande (artist) deliver as much fun as that 80’s series did. We have confidence they will. So we’ll be picking this up on new comic book day.

We informed readers a few weeks ago regarding the new Doctor Strange team (InvestComics Hot Picks #443). Seems like everyone is getting a team these days right? Anyway, the Wednesday Doctor Strange Sorcerers Supreme #1 will “debut” the Sorcerers Supreme team. As so Marvel may say, but we all know they debuted a few weeks ago in Doctor Strange Annual #1 as we already tipped you off.
The Doctor Strange movie must be drawing nearer because fans will be inundated with Strange books and appearances everywhere. Hence TWO number one comics released in the same week. Besides his new team book, comic fans will get Doctor Strange Mystic Apprentice #1.

Punisher Ann #1 Ron Lim

Cover artist Alex Ross hits a home run with his All New All Different Avengers #15 cover. Stunning.
Marvel’s Civil War II is closing in on it’s final issue, so the battle intensifies. Civil War II #6; Check out that Marko Djurdjevic Spidey cover too. Caps in trouble!
The Punisher Annual #1 hits this week with one of the best Halloween covers from Marvel in a while. The cover is from Rahzzah.  Although the Ron Lim variant is awesome too. Wow on both.

Every month we will remind fans of the latest Spider-Man Deadpool release because we’ve told you time after time it will sell out. We’ve been saying this since issue number one. Spider-Man Deadpool #10 will be on the new release wall. It’ll probably….ah never mind, you get the idea.
Another one of our speculation calls comes to fruition. We called the Deadpool Mercs For Money characters to all get their own books soon back in January of this year. We provided everyone with their first appearances in the InvestComics Hot Picks #409 article and touched on these characters quite a few times thereafter. This week we see another one of those characters debuting in their own comic; Prowler #1.
….And Deadpool #21 this week debuts Shakespool. Need we say more on that one?

Ms. Marvel #12 will not only have a Red Widow 10 page story, but a Red Widow variant cover by Alessandro Taini as well. It’s quite awesome. We think this is the first Red Widow cover appearance since she first appeared in Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 late last year.

Image Comics releases two second print number one issues this week. Surgeon #1 and Seven To Eternity #1. Both of these comics bring their second issue this week as well; Surgeon #2 and Seven To Eternity #2.
Fresh off of a huge New York Comic Con 2016 presence, Valiant Entertainment debuts a new Bloodshot series; Bloodshot USA #1. All the variants covers are amazing. We like the Doug Braithwaite as our favorite. Also, with every release we remind readers and collectors about Generation Zero from Valiant. We think Generation Zero is the modern day team for the modern day comic reader. Check out Generation Zero #3 this Wednesday.
Eric Powell’s imprint Albatross Exploding publishing are reaping the rewards from their hit comic Hillbilly. This week they will reap rewards once again with their kids anthology series Spookhouse #1. A collection of scary stories from yours truly; Eric Powell.
Black Mask Comics, is a small publisher with big idea’s. We say it ALL the time, buy Black Mask comics. They’re always quality reads and sometimes pay dividends on the speculative side. Can’t go wrong here. This week from Black Mask Comics; Skeptics #1.

Put together one of the most popular video games of all time with a popular genre of today and you’ll get Call of Duty Zombies #1 comic from Dark Horse.
Here are some other great indie comics to check out this week. Markiplier #1 (Red Giant Entertainment). Wolfcop #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Inspector Oh #1 (Devils Due Publishing). Another Castle #5 (Kris Anka cover art).
