**Please, if you are a new reader or a regular reader of this article and have not seen or read the disclaimer, we urge you to read it (link provided above and tab on top of site).

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Thursday/Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet. Most of the time, some of the more obscure titles make their way onto Ebay later on in the week or right on/at/before new comic book day on Wednesday. Be sure to check back and click the links or cover(s) to see if the books you want have been listed on Ebay. They usually show up, so be sure to check back!

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: We have three CBCS graded comics to check out this week. Power Man and Iron Fist #119 (1985) 9.8. The retelling of Iron Fists’ origin for only $95. Free shipping. John Byrne cover. Nova #1 (1976) 9.0. The first appearance and origin of Marvel’s Nova character. On the cusp of something great in our humble opinion. This 9.0 graded comic is only $99 with free shipping. New Mutants #87 (1990) 8.5. This is the first appearance of Cable. It’s an 8.5 and with a press, maybe bump that grade up? Only $99.

We informed our fans back in January of this year regarding the Marvel character Slapstick. Check that out right here at this LINK. We spoke about all of the Merc For Money characters getting their own solo books before it was ever spoken about from Marvel. We especially hyper-focused on the Slapstick character. We thought and still think there is upside to this goofy Joker/Deadpool misfit character. Maybe even bigger things down the pike for him. This week the new Slapstick #1 will begin his newest journey onward and upward. He first appeared back in 1992’s self titled book Slapstick #1. We said it back in January and we’ll say it again, get his first appearance now. It was literally 75 cents when we mentioned it back 11 months ago. A NM copy ranges around $10 now in some outlets. Well worth it. Buy it now. The new Slapstick #1 Rob Liefeld variant(s) have Deadpool on the cover to make this a must get for variant cover collectors.

Speaking of giving fans a heads up, we helped fans make lots of money (flips) with Darth Vader #3, the first appearance of Doctor Aphra. Marvel continues their female dominate character run with their last(?) solo female book of 2016; Star Wars Doctor Aphra #1. Written by Darth Vader writer Kieron Gillen and art from Kev Walker. The solicit remains a secret as fans will get an in-depth look into the rookie Star Wars player in the Marvel universe. The Doctor is in and the prognosis is a good one.

Entering its seventh volume, Nova #1 from writer Jeff Loveness/Ramon Perez and art by Ramon Perez. Marvel promises a Nova comic as you have never seen before. Be there on new comic book day to check this out.
Marvel and DC have found a niche in the comic book market a while ago and of course are running it to the ground. With that said, meet She-Borg in her first appearance in Cyborg #6. You see, it’s Cyborg, but a girl version. Yes for real, no kidding.
Fantastic Frankenstein Superman cover by Doug Mahnke; Superman #12.
The identity of a new villain is revealed in Justice League #10.

Titan Comics will go back to well with their hit character Norman. Norman The First Slash #1 will begin a new series regarding the psychotic 9(?) year old boy. The first series sold very well as Norman #1 commanded some nice aftermarket cash before it settled off. If Titan Comics continues the restarts, that will demoralize the value a little bit of the number one issue. They should just have an on-going series and stick with it. That’s our two-cents, but Titan Comics and Norman will be awesome no matter what anyway.
Faith #6 from Valiant Entertainment will introduce fans to a new villain.
Dynamic Entertainment provides fans with a team up of epic proportions. A pairing that had fans screaming, demanding it happen. This Wednesday, because you demanded it, Wonder Woman 77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1. Odd pairing no?
A must read comic this week; Motor Crush #1 from Image Comics. Brought to you by the amazing creative team of Babs Tarr, Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart.
