Buy/Bid – 1st Deadpool Duck

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!

Happy New Year everyone. We hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. We also wish you all a prosperous 2017.
InvestComics took its first ever holiday break in 13 years. A much needed and deserved break. We’re so happy to get back into the flow of things. Our batteries are recharged and we’re ready to go another 13 years without a holiday break. Well, maybe not that long, but we’re recharged and ready to go.
We’re first going to touch on a few comics from last week, then we’re going to give you the Hot Picks from this week. We actually had this Hot Picks semi-put together, but did not hit the publish button, vacation was calling, so we’re going to give you exactly what we wrote about last week before new comic book day…….and vacation.
A very short list ahead for last week and this week, but we’re quite sure it’ll get moving as the weeks progress. No guarantee of course, but we always want to provide the best comics recommendations for our fans.

Buy/Bid Now – Supergirl #1

A new Supergirl book from writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Joelle Jones; Supergirl Being Super #1. Looks like it’ll be sort of a Supergirl Year One book.
The last time Harley Quinn appeared in a Scooby-Doo comic book, the collectors market turned on their proverbial head as other sites made the comic out to be the rarest comic on mother earth. As those sites marveled over a Harley Quinn appearance in a cartoon dog comic, some of the aftermarket sellers made a killing on the book. We feel bad for all of those buyers being completely mislead. We wouldn’t hype a book just because it has the 2,328th appearance (exaggerating of course) of Harley Quinn in a cartoon dog comic that will be found in some dollar bin some day. So what it’s a short print run. Seriously, any real speculator would recognize it was and still is a huge waste of time. You made money on it, good for you, but a warning to collectors that may not know better, don’t succumb to the hype ridiculousness of an appearance in a book that is completely meaningless and pay top dollar for it. We all love the Harley character, but lets all keep ourselves in check with her appearance this week in Scooby-Doo Team-Up #21.

Jennifer Walters tries once again to carry her own series. This time however it’s a bit different. No more will the word ‘SHE’ be used in a She-Hulk series. No more will there be the word ‘Savage’. All of that will be bye-bye. The new Jennifer Walters comic title is Hulk. Hulk #1 debuts with writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Nico Leon at the helm, with a bazillion variant covers to choose from.
Marvel brings the character Chthon back to the forefront in Carnage #15. Chthon has appeared sporadically in his long history. Marvel going into their horror comics archives and pulling out a character from 1975, it’s a safe bet we’ll see more of this down the pike. Chthon first appeared in Marvel Chillers #1 (1975).
Fans love Rocket Raccoon and the Guardians of The Galaxy movie he appeared in. After the rodent appeared in the movie, Marvel inundated comic fans with Rocket Raccoon appearances everywhere. Very annoying after a while, but now Marvel is finally giving Rocket his own book. Rocket Raccoon #1 will be written by Matthew Rosenberg and art from Jorge Coelho. The Rafael Albuquerque homage cover to Bill Sienkiewicz’s Elektra Assassin #1 (1986) cover is our fave.
Looks like Marvel is trying to get readers right in the ‘feels’ with the latest Spider-Man #11 comic. Learn about the untold story of Miles Morales’ father.

Dark Horse gives AvP fans a new series to read. Check out Aliens vs Predator Life and Death #1.

If you’re a fan of the sometimes confusing DC Multiplicity universe, then there is a book for you this week. Superman #14 begins a new story dealing with all of the Supermen within the multi-earth universe. It’s like a who’s who of the Superman universe, but not.
A new Harley storyline begins in Harley Quinn #11, ‘Joker Loves Harley’.
And speaking of Harley, she graces most of the covers from this week’s Justice League vs Suicide Squad #3 issue. A good hearty comic book read and great covers to boot.

Marvel’s premise of mashing Deadpool with Howard the Duck sounds so out there and outrageous that it’ll probably catch on and become a mega hit. Deadpool The Duck #1 hit this Wednesday with plenty of variants for the fans to choose from. We’re fans of the Ron Lim variant. As a reminder here, if you’re not already in the know, Deadpool the Duck first appeared in Deadpool Kills Deadpool #3 (2013).
Moon Knight #10 promises to change things as far as the character is concerned. And that Whilce Portacio variant cover….wow.
Slapstick is back with Slapstick #2. This issue will focus a bit on the Bro-Man. He first appeared in the inaugural issue. We like Slapstick and so should you.
Marvel has officially entered the ridiculousness zone (again) with their U.S. Avengers #1 50 state variant covers gimmick. Psst Marvel…..psst… one cares about this, stop it. Fans are looking for a few variants and a good story, stop it.
