THE COMIC BROKER’S REPORT – September 2014 pt. 2
Reaction to this month’s article has been about as hot as my sister skinny dipping with a recently diagnosed thyroid problem. To make up for that I have decided to add some extra selections for this month. An update would have sufficed but it ballooned with a bunch of new pics and since become a part 2. Some of these may have already been spotlighted by others on the web and if that it true then those author’s are by far much better than me and should receive emails from any reader telling them so! Enjoy your Labor day weekend folks!
The Pulse 11,13
With A Jessica Jones show coming up on Netflix how long before Danielle Cage makes an appearance?
The Flash: Iron Heights
Girder is an obscure DC villain who first appeared in The Flash: Iron Heights, an excellent prestige format book by industry greats Johns and Ethan Van Sciver. The character has been cast to appear in the upcoming Flash TV show.
Flashpoint 1 2011
Farooq/Blackout is an even more obscure character than Girder. Though he appears first in the well printed/underwhelming Flashpoint 1 (also by Johns ) the issue is rare depending on which version you seek out.
Sketch variant, third printing, George Perez variant, SDCC and Canadian Expo edition
Tales of Suspense 59 ( First Appearance Jarvis )
Jarvis will be cast for the Agent Carter show. The famous butler to heroes first appeared in this classic series from Marvel.
Doctor Who Weekly 17 ( First appearance of Abslom Daak )
Fan favorite and Dalek Killer, Abslom Daak could finally be appearing on screen. His first appearance is really going to be tough to find in high grade though.
The Avengers 167 ( First appearance of Carina )
In the comics she’s The Collector’s daughter but if you’ve see the GOTG film then you know that she’s not to happy with her position. It’s great little role by an unknown.
The Flash 245 ( First appearance of the Floronic Man )
Del Toro’s Justice League Dark is going to feature many of DC’s best characters who deal in magic and mysticism. The legendary director has expressed a desire to include The Floronic Man. This is his first appearance.
Note: The Floronic man appears in The Atom 1 but he does not become the Floronic Man until this Flash issue.
Secret Six 7 ( first appearance of Komodo )
Arrow is looking to feature a ton of DC characters in the upcoming season including Komodo!
The Flash Volume 2 Issue 28 ( First Linda Park )
Green Arrow 17 variant ( First Komodo DC new 52 )
This variant is going to be the one to collectors will want. It also features Jeff Lemire’s writing debut for Arrow and that’s enough to make this reader buy! Simon Lacroix is an expert archer in his own right and may turn out to be one of the more exciting TV characters if he is adapted well from the source material.
The Eternals 7 ( First appearance Eson the Searcher )
One of the more obscure appearances ( and my personal favorite! ) from the GOTG film!
Hulk vs. Iron Man 2 ( First Extremis Hulk )
Captain Atom ( First General Wade Eiling )
The General is rumored to play a significant role on Arrow! This one may not see much in the way of market gains based on a higher print run but for fans of Arrow it’s a must own and can probably be found in a dollar bin.
Peter Parker, Spider-Ham 12 ( First Galactypus )
If you haven’t been reading Ultimate FF then you need to start right after you finish reading this.
Superman Day of Doom 1 of 4
Man I sure hate mini -series and not because of the format. For some reason collector’s frown upon them especially modern buyers and sellers. In this cases fans of the upcoming Gotham show and the Gotham Central comic should want this one.
