Comic Broker Report – October 2013

The slow market continues…

Here are ten tips for October:

1.  Do not invest heavily in DC 3D covers.

2.  If you find new 52 Batman issues in high grade at cheap prices buy and flip for decent money.

3.  Invest in Harley Quinn.

4.  Do not rent, purchase or recommend this film:  The Colony

5.  Eat at Dell Taco if possible.

6.  Convince your girlfriend or wife to dress as Mother Russia this Halloween!

7.  Give Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. your support.  It will only help more comic               properties get developed.

8.  Do not care what the fox says.

9.   Support my Kickstarter for Halloween candy is the shapes of razorblades, syringes, pocket knives, prescription medication  etc.

10.  Play Farcry 3: Blood Dragon if you have not already done so.

 

These are the comics I am recommending this month.

Marvel Two-in-One 42

Marvel_Two-In-One_42

Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered this week and the ratings were huge.  Reviews are mixed but most can agree that Agent Coulson stole the show.  Writers have set up some intriguing mysteries surrounding familiar Marvel storylines.  If  the Journey into Mystery name drop got you exited then so will Project Pegasus!

Ghost Projekt 1

Here’s one I may have missed the boat on!  A possible TV adaptation in the works usually meant back issue heat and in this case it’s an inferno.  Mini series don’t see the kind of price gains that regular running series often do but when big studios are involved and the printing is low few things can halt the frenzy.

The Avengers 158 ( first Graviton )

15555-2128-17336-1-avengers-the

Is he Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s  first super villain?  Buy this issue just in case!

 

Star Wars film speculation is only going to intensify each second we get closer to the new films from Disney.  The current rumors still center around Solo’s twins and if you read my articles you know right where to go for their first appearance.  Here are some of my favorites!

Star Wars 10 ( first Darth Krayt )

Star Wars 10 ( first Darth Krayt )

Star Wars Episode 2 Attack of the Clones #3 ( first Count Dooku )

Star Wars Ep 2 Attack Cones 3 ( first Dooku )

Star Wars: Jango Fett Open Season ( first Tor Vizsla )

Star Wars Jango Fett Open Season 1 First Tor Vizsla

 Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children

Have you seen A Blue Valentine or A Place Beyond the Pines?  Both films were critical successes and now the director is set to adapt what?  If you remember this twisted series from DC look for prices to jump real soon.  The keys are very hard to come by.  ( issue 13 has part 2 and is still cheap online )

Journey into Mystery 102 ( first Sif )

Journey_into_Mystery_Vol_1_102

Sif looks to have a much larger role in the upcoming film and that’s definitely a good thing.  Nothing should make fans happier than expanded character development for Thor’s supporting cast.

 

JOHN CONSTANTINE

An NBC show in the works =back issue raids across the country.  Swamp Thing 37 is still pricey but other early issue can be found for small money.

Swamp Thing  37, Crisis 4,  38

Rumors are swirling already  for Thor 3’s nemesis!

 UPDATE

Who is Jake Ellis?  Personally I don’t care but with movie speculation being what it is look for this rare series just not Online.  Issues have been swallowed up.

  1. 1. Doh! Well, I didn’t invest heavily, but I do have most of the covers. Not that I plan on selling them, but do you think the value will drop back down to near cover price?

    2. I noticed issues #5, 6, 8, & 10 of Batman vol. 2. Not quite sure why some of the early issues are just above cover price and others are 3 x the value.

    9. My Human Torch costume may be out in the garage. It’s a bag full of oily rags with a lighter…………………..

  2. some of those 3d issues are very rare but I don’t see value rising over the long term but I also have a thing against collecting modern variants. As for those Batman issues I actually see investment opportunity for later printings and the bagged digital editions as well!

What do you think? Trending Pop Culture would like to know.
