**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: Here are four comics to BUY NOW at or under $99. No biding. Man-Thing #1 (1979) 9.8. A high grade bronze here and origin retold for only $66.49. DC Super Stars #17 (1977) 7.5. This is the first full appearance and origin of Huntress (Helena Wayne) at only $84. Forever People #8 (1972) 9.6. An earlier Darkseid appearance, Jack Kirby story, art and cover for $84.95. Marvel Feature #4 (1972) 5.5. First Bronze Age Ant-Man appearance and origin retold. Spider-Man appearance as well. All this for only $60.

DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1 will deliver the goods on new comic day. A ton of world class talent in this $9.99 special. DC is touting the return of Detective Chimp in this book as well. The last time we saw Detective Chimp in action was in 2011’s Zatanna #16. A hard to find/scarce comic and a fantastic Adam Hughes cover to boot. If you’re interested, Detective Chimp’s first appearance (modern) into the DC universe occurred in DC Comics Presents #35 (1981). Art from legend Gil Kane.
Deathstroke #8 concludes the ‘Professional’ story line as Deathstroke battles Superman. The Shane Davis cover is a keeper. More so if you’re a Superman fan….And that Jim Lee Suicide Squad #8 cover too. Wow.
Harley Quinn not only becomes more of a player, but will grace one of the variant covers of the new Batman TMNT Adventures #2.

Daredevil #14 puts the villain Muse front and center in the conclusion of the ‘Dark Art’ story line. Muse paints a dismal Daredevil cover here. A terrific Ron Garney cover. He’s been killing it with these unbelievable Daredevil covers hasn’t he?? Muse could be a villain that sticks in Daredevil’s side for years to come. Muse(2) first appeared a few issues ago in Daredevil #11.

It turns out (no surprise), after much muttering, moaning and complaining (instead of giving things a chance first, what a concept there), Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows debut was a likable first issue. The consensus is stating that fans actually dig the first issue and now Marvel needs to follow it up with more of the same to garner even more interest. Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #2 will have the new modern day Fantastic Four comic, but with three, different players, a family, well you get the idea, fighting their way out of an attack from the Mole Man. The J. Scott Variant family cover is a beauty. Speaking of Mr. J. Scott Campbell, his Red Sonja #0 variant jumps off the cover.
Kate Bishop begins her solo career this Wednesday, bumping off Clint in Hawkeye #1. Kind of like what Prescott did to Romo. (NFL fans only understand this reference, sorry non-sports fan). Check out Kate Bishop’s first appearance in Young Avengers #1 (2005).
Salvador Espin pays homage to Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man #1 (1990) with his cover for Deadpool Back In Black #5. Also, Chris Stevens pays homage Rob Liefeld’s New Mutants #87 (1990) with his cover for Guardians Of The Galaxy #15.

The battle begins for the ultimate supreme mutant team in the Marvel universe. IVX #1 pits the Inhumans against the X-Men. Lets revisit here, Disney is so perturbed with Fox Studios regarding the X-Men franchise and them not ‘teaming up’ with Marvel Studios that the original ‘X’ books and Wolverine have basically disappeared from their comic book universe altogether. Disney has announced the Inhumans will be starring in their own television show by next year. Now Disney realized a bit how insecure they have looked, so they are bringing back ONE X title(s) by early next year. So……our money is on the Inhumans. That’s until Fox relinquishes or lets Disney borrow Wolverine from their clasp. Then our dough will be on the X-Men. We can switch sides like that. So can you.
Marvel offers up one of their holiday comics this week; Gwenpool Holiday Special #1 Merry Mix Up.
