Buy, Sell, Hold – Werewolf By Night #32

One comic is chosen to go under the scope. What is the best course? As a speculator, is it worth buying, selling or holding?
Here are the pros and cons, YOU decide.

Werewolf By Night #321975
Writer: Doug Moench
Art: Don David Perlin
Inker: Howie Perlin
Cover Art: Gil Kane & Al Milgrom

PROS: The first appearance and origin of Moon Knight – The first appearance of right-hand man ‘Frenchie’ – An extremely valuable commodity in the aftermarket. An 8.5 CGC graded recently SOLD for $930+. This is an extremely high-priced sale for a character not considered to be an A-lister. A RAW copy sold for $700+ a couple of days later (see ‘cons’) – A constant rumored to be character from every television studio to movie studio to see live action (see ‘cons’) – IF Moon Knight ever does see the light of day, with SOLID news/confirmation of a live action, this comic will be aftermarket gold – A much revered cult followed character – A Gil Kane/Al Milgrom cover – Dubbed Marvel’s “White Knight” from comic fans – A part of the West Coast Avengers team at one point –  A Bronze Age comic – Constant upward ticks over years makes this comic very desirable. InvestComics recommended this comic 12 years ago and thru-out the years since. The comic was able to be bought in certain area’s for $100 at the time we first mentioned.

CONS: There are a total of 1873 graded copies (CGC Census). Out of those copies, 580 are graded 9.0 or higher. This is NOT including a CBCS Census (no data). NM copies are readily available out there and CBCS has not been factored in here – Rumors have been bound for a couple of years now, but have been getting particularly stronger more recently,  which means absolutely nothing – Rumors are not a stable environment for long-term investments. Markets need validity, balance and hard copy to proceed in the correct direction. If rumors continue, it will be a score for the seller. If rumors cease and or studios do not make a move (announcement), look for a possible major correction on this comic. RAW copies will take a major hit as graded books will wane away – As a non A-list Marvel character a $700 sale for a RAW copy is a bit of an aggressive stance for any speculator at this point.

What do you think? Is this comic a buy, sell or hold?

From the InvestComics Moon Knight Checklist

Werewolf By Night #33 (1975) Second appearance.
Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976) First solo book. Legendary writer Doug Moench on this book and long time penciler Don Perlin. A must for any Moon Knight collector here. Several first appearances in here.
Moon Knight #1 (1980) His first solo/self titled book. Bill Sienkiewicz art. First appearance of Bushman, Khonshu and Dr. Peter Alraune. Origin of Moon Knight  part 1. Also Sienkiewicz cover art.
Marc Spector Moon Knight #55 (1993) The first definitive Moon Knight artist. Legend Bill Sienkiewicz was amazing, but Stephen Platt took the character look to a whole new level. This is the Miller Dark Knight, the McFarlane Spidey, the Simonson Thor, etc. The first defining artist moment in Moon Knight history is right here. The second comes later. Too bad Stephen wasn’t enough at the time to save this series from its demise a short time later. The first published work of Stephen Platt.

Rom #61 (1984) – Steve Ditko art. Here’s a fun book to hunt down for only one reason. That black cover. See if you can score a 9.8 grade or higher. Might be challenging for a 32 year old comic. And besides, look at the creator names on this book anyway, Mantlo. Guice, Austin, Mazzucchelli, and Ditko. Not just any book to get graded.
Rom #62 (1985) – Steve Ditko art. Michael Zeck cover.
Rom #65 (1985) – Steve Ditko pencils ALL of these characters; Avengers, X-Men, West Coast Avengers, Soviet Super Soldiers, Dynamic Defenders (which includes Valkyrie, Beast, Iceman, Gargoyle, Angel, and Moondragon), Captain Britain, and many more. This issue is a must have in your Steve Ditko collection.

Hyperion #1 – Marvel’s latest Superman push. Maybe they want to eventually have a Superman type movie one day. Maybe Disney wants that. And what Disney wants, Disney gets.

Obi-Wan And Anakin #3 – Regular readers on InvestComics know we recommend ANY Star Wars comic. Not only for the fantastic story lines throughout Marvel’s galaxy far far away, but also the potential of a new major Star Wars character getting introduced. That said, Obi-Wan and Anakin visit a new world this Wednesday. A new world could mean a new character!

Venom Space Knight #5 – And speaking of new characters. Check out the new Panda character named Pik Rollo in this comic. That Ariel Olivetti cover kills too.

Delete #1 – The Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Justin Gray team is at it again. This time with a Devils Due Publishing release. A must read of course. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #56 – This comic is sold out across the board. Regular and variants. The solicit point to the first appearance of Leatherhead in this issue……..but that’s not the complete truth. Check the InvestComics Hot Picks article to find the true first appearance of Leatherhead.

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Avengers #154 (1976) Graded 9.4. there are two standouts here regarding this pick. Let us tell you what the other non-standouts are first. It’s a 1976 book graded at a nice 9.4. It’s the first appearance of Tyrax. Legend, George Perez with interior art. Now let’s hit on the two standouts. First, the cover art is by Al Migrom and comic book legend Jack ‘King’ Kirby. Second, this graded CGC comic is priced at a Buy It Now for only $59.99. Okay one more fantastic thing….free shipping. This must be in your collection. Avengers, George Perez, Al Milgrom, first appearance, and Jack Kirby?! A 9.4 for $59.99 with FREE shipping. No-brainer here. Better grab it before it’s gone.

IDW introduces Leatherhead in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #56. Leatherhead actually first appeared back in 1988’s Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #6 (Mirage Publishing).

Bruce Wayne is back as Batman in Batman #50. Here is Synder and Capullo’s final Batman comic. They’ve had a fine run to say the least. Does it equate to Batman #1 in their run costing so much money in the aftermarket? More questions; Does that comic contain a major first appearance? A death? A creators first work? A low low print run? If the answer was ‘no’ to all of these questions, then the answer to our original question was answered. Here’s another thing. Look to the right upper hand side of the graded Batman #1’s. It’s blank. Nothing there. Not even a new costume reference. Not hating, we absolutely loved the run. Just need to point out the obvious and separate the boys from the men. Long term…..be wise youngsters, invest wisely.
Also reach their 50th issue this week will be Wonder Woman #50.
An awesome fight will be going down in Deathstroke #16. Deathstroke vs. Red Hood. Ding! Ding! Fight!

The Howling Commandos Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 will have the team searching for ORRGO. ORRGO has been used sparingly over the last 53 years. Maybe a little over a dozen appearances? Crazy right? ORRGO’s first appearance was in Strange Tales #90 (1961). A book from Jack Kirby, Don Heck, Steve Ditko, and Stan Lee. Wow, what a line up.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.
Doesn’t Hyperion remind you a bit of Superman on a couple of his covers to Hyperion #1? Maybe Marvel is trying its hand again in trying to deliver their version of Superman. Marvel last tried back in 2000 with Sentry. Sentry was basically Marvel’s Superman at the time. They don’t really have that “Superman” type character. They really don’t need one. Fast forward to Hyperion #1. Marvel may be going back to the well again with the striking resemblance on those covers. Hyperion first appeared (cameo) along with Squadron Sinister in Avengers #69 (1969). His first full appearance was in the next issue; Avengers #70. Sentry (Robert Reynolds), first appeared in The Sentry #1 (2000).
Is The New Avengers #8 comic the first appearance of American Kaiju? It might be.
Obi-Wan And Anakin enter a new world in Obi-Wan And Anakin #3. You know what that means right? New world, new characters!

Totally Awesome Hulk #4 – Women of power variant from Meghan Hetrick for the win. But that Ultimates #5 Women of Power variant from Yasmine Putri is stellar too! Okay we’ll call a tie this week. That all said, we still think the title of the Hulk book is a bit silly, not changing our minds on that one.

Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Connor, and Justin Gray team up (once again) to bring us Delete #1 from Devils Due Publishing. Always a good time when these guys (and gal!) get together. And do you know that the ‘insert’ button on your keyboard is right next to the ‘delete’ button? Looks like Jimmy, Amanda, and Justin are using that subliminal stuff on us. ‘Insert’ this comic into your collection. See, see, we’re on to you! So we’re buying this comic, not because of a button, because we like you guys…..and gal.

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 in purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details).

IC 100 Club Pick: Avengers #28 (1966) Graded 4.5. This Silver Age beauty is the first appearance of the Collector and Giant-Man becomes Goliath. With legends attached to this book named, Lee, Kirby, Heck, and Giacoia, it would make a great addition to your collection. At a price tag of (only) $79.99 with free shipping. An early Avengers comic, a first appearance and 4 legendary creators…..what is there not to love here?

The Superman American Alien series continues to impress. Check out Superman American Alien #5 coming out this week.
Martian Manhunter #10 will contain the origin of J’onn J’onzz.
Poison Ivy Cycle Of Life And Death #3 cover by Clay Mann. Kudos!
Legends of Tomorrow #1 will have 4 separate stories of various characters from various creators. Firestorm from Conway, Hunter and Pansica. Metamorpho by Lopresti and Banning. Sugar & Spike (all grown up!) from Giffen and Evely. Metal Men from Wein, Scott, and Yildiray. As you can see, some super talents in this book. Fans should be up for a great read!
Both covers, the regular and variant for the Green Arrow #50 issue this Wednesday are awesome. Shane Davis on the regular cover and Aaron Kuder on the Batman V Superman variant.
Astro City #33 will introduce Fix-It Man.

IDW’s 3 Devils #1 from creator Bo Hampton looks good. Bo handles writing and art duties. Also from IDW, Ghostbusters fans will be treated to a new story; Ghostbusters Deviations. Sticking with the franchise stamp, Star Trek #55 will be the first part of a four part story line; Legacy of Spock.
Legend Alex Ross delivers as he does so often on the new Lords of The Jungle #1 cover from Dynamite Entertainment.

If you haven’t been keeping up with Monstress (Image Comics) from Marjorie Liu, well then you’ve been missing out. Catch Monstress #4 this week and go HERE for all available Monstress books on Ebay.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Infinty Entity #2 has Warlock running into the character In-Betweener. In-Betweener first appeared back in 1975’s Warlock #9. A Jim Starlin creation. Jim Starlin writes and draws that issue. Jim is also writing the Infinity Entity series.
InvestComics is still feeling the bull market with Deadpool And The Mercs For Money. Check out Deadpool And The Mercs For Money #2 and see why we feel this way. Good stuff happening here. All the first appearances of each group member right HERE.
A few things regarding the new All-New Inhumans #5 this week. First, there seems to be an introduction here, the Skyspears. Never heard of them, maybe you have? If not, this will be their first appearance. Second, a very cool Neal Adams variant! And lastly, a Spider-Man guest spot. An all around good comic here. Also good to know, the Marco D’Alfonso Sugar Hill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight Hip Hop cover is sold out.

International Iron Man #1 from Bendis and Maleev. It will be an interesting read because Michael usually takes us readers to places we’ve never gone. Lots of variants to choose from. We dig the Gabriele Dell Otto variant (sold out).
We love, love the regular cover to Scarlet Witch #4 from David Aja. Lovely.
Squadron Supreme #5 features a character being brought back from obscurity. Although featured in a few books late last year, he hasn’t appeared much of anywhere in his 41 year existence. Skull The Slayer makes an appearance this Wednesday. He first appeared in Skull The Slayer #1 in 1975. Written by Marv Wolfman and a cover by Gil Kane/Al Milgrom.

Valiant Entertainment has done it again. They have sold out of a comic and are releasing a second print with the first print on the same day. A&A #1 will have quite the variant of choosing when Wednesday hits, but our fav’s are the Kano and Phil Jimenez covers.

After a bit of a wait, Clandestino #2 (Black Mask) will finally get fans back in the mood.
Rivers of London #1 (Titan Comics) one variant is sold out. 
Steven Universe And The Crystal Gems #1 (Boom Studios) is sold out.

Click on the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid right now.

Here’s a speculation article that will run periodically regarding which comics we feel should be the next to hit the movies, television or become an animated show. Will any of these comics see the light of day? Possibly. Possibly not. InvestComics throughout its years (10 years, longest running speculative website on the internet and the number one speculative website) has called a MANY comics (and characters) to hit the screen WAY before they were ever announced to do so. Guardians of The Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Warlock, Dormammu, Kick Ass, Thanos, Nemesis, Crossbones, just to name a few that have come to light and or will be coming. We’re not saying that these comics in these articles are guarantees to ever come to fruition, but these are our choices we feel deserve some airplay….in some form. Even a video game too.

Please realize that all of this is a speculative look at the hobby. Maybe some of these will become reality, maybe most of these won’t, but understand that this is pure speculation. Read the disclaimer. Read the disclaimer. Oh and read the disclaimer and please have fun.

Rom (Movie/Toon/Game) – Marvel Comics made the Rom toy a cult favorite comic book. Now IDW will pick up the mantle and start an entirely new race and galaxy realm without any Dire Wraiths (Marvel owns that). Although a Rom based movie would seem a bit campy probably to make, we thought that of the Transformers idea too, but that worked. Maybe an animated show would fair better here.
*Rom #1 (1979) Writer Bill Mantlo and art by Sal Buscema. Cover art by Joe Rubinstein and Fran Miller. 75 issues. Rom’s first venture ever outside of his book came in Power Man and Iron Fist #73 (1981). Cover by Frank Miller.

Power Pack (Movie/Game) – As InvestComics called this comic out back in 2010, who would have known Marvel Studios would report directly to Disney eventually? We did of course. Eventually Disney will take over complete creative control, so with that said we get Power Pack on this list. A made for movie comic book right in Disney’s wheelhouse. It’s probably a matter of WHEN this will get done, not a matter of IF.
*Power Pack #1 (1984) First appearance. Writer Louise Simonson and art by June Brigman. Cover art by June Brigman and Bob Wiacek. Lasted 62 issues.

Micronauts (Movie/Game) – This toy line went on to spawn a plethora of comic books from many different companies, but it’s Marvel Comics who got things started in 1979. A movie would seem a fantastic way to go here. Michael Bay?
*Micronauts #1; First appearance. Bill Mantlo writes, art work by Michael Golden. Cover by Dave Cockrum and Al Milgrom. Lasted 59 issues.

Moon Knight (Movie/TV/Game) – InvestComics has been on this character since the inception of the website 10 years ago. If there is one character we feel that will guarantee to breakout into its own movie or television series, this dude right here is it. (A rare thing to get any sort of guarantees here on InvestComics). Check out the ultimate Moon Knight checklist from InvestComics right HERE. You will not find a better list. We guarantee it.
*First appeared in Werewolf By Night #32 (1975). First solo comic; Marvel Spotlight #28 (1976).

Alpha Flight (Movie) – Canada’s bad as* team needs to get their due. An absolute breakout film if it would ever get done. This team is the real deal.
*First appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #120 (1979). Alpha Flight #1 (1983) was written by John Byrne, art by John Byrne and cover by Byrne and Terry Ausin. Lasted 130 issues. If Alpha Flight ever takes flight and makes it to the big screen, Alpha Flight #1 will be the equivalent of New Mutants #98 in the sense that although there is a major overprint run on the book, it’ll command big dollars in the aftermarket.

Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner (Movie) – No stranger to InvestComics readers here. covered a few times over the years (BEFORE Disney became the official bosses recently) that Disney has conquered land and space on the big screen. Just a matter of time before they hit one of their favorite places; water. So many successful films for the Mouse company taking place in the depths of water. How about that first live action water superhero movie Disney? It starts right here with Prince Namor. It has to.
*First appearance Motion Picture Funnies Weekly Volume 1 #1 (1939). Fantastic Four #4; first Silver Age Namor. Stan Lee writes, art by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and cover by Jack ‘King’ Kirby and Sol Brodsky. Just like InvestComics informed buyers to buy the first Inhumans at ANY grade in the past few years, buy this comic book at any grade, doesn’t matter. Buy it. The Sub Mariner #1 (1968) comic is definitely one to have in your collection once the movie finally comes to fruition. No doubt here (another guarantee). The series lasted 72 issues.

The Pro – (Movie/TV) Here is an awesome movie or HBO/AMC television show waiting to happen. A prostitute superhero tries to find her way within the grand scheme of things with a baby in tow. A cable comedy series that would kill. This comic story is not suitable for all readers. If you’re easily offended, this book is NOT for you. A movie here would be good, but leaving audiences wanting more probably, so a television series would be the better route here.
*The Pro (2002) from Image Comics; Written by Garth Ennis, art by Amanda Connor and cover by Connor/Jimmy Palmiotti.

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 8/19/15

 

You have one minute to spare? 60 seconds?….

Host Salvatore Antithesis with Co-Producer/Camera/Editor Brenton Noon bring an all new comic book review show like you’ve never seen before. It’s impossible to get bored or click it off because it’s only one minute long! “Sal’s Minute Of Mediocrity!” No wasted time, down time, maundering, just getting to the point. And Sal definitely knows how to do this. Watch the trailer below which last 7 seconds more than the actual show! Will Sal’s Minute Of Mediocrity! ever go over the one minute mark? Will it be by 4 seconds or 8 or less?? Will he hit the one minute spot dead on? Will the internet explode if he goes over the one minute? Will fanboys find something to complain about regarding this video and fun concept? (yes of course they will), All of these questions will be answered soon with surprises in store! So sit back, grab one junior mint, no time for a drink and watch the Exclusive 67 second new teaser trailer debuting in theaters before the new Star Wars The Force Awakens movie right here, right now! Chewie said this was happening, maybe we misunderstood. Hard to catch everything he says sometimes.

Oxymoron 1 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

Star Wars 8 InvestComics

Click To Buy/Bid

Oxymoron #1 – As new comic book Wednesday rolls along, this comic will be sold out at Diamond soon enough.

Star Wars #8 – A new Star Wars comic this week. Buy it, read it and hold onto it. Each and every single Star Wars comic (until December and beyond actually) has the potential of a speculators dream. If one introduction in any of the Star Wars comics makes it to the big screen, you just paid for a few months of comics on your pull list.

Hip Hop Family Tree #1 from Fantagraphics is sold out.

Book of Death #2 – This event story line from Valiant Entertainment is all sorts of fabulous.

Archie #2 – Not as big a return as Star Wars, but the new Archie series will probably touch on a lot of introductions that will eventually appear in their movie release or television release. The relaunch of the Archie Comics line is an important one because it’s probably a direct link to anything regarding their media releases. An Archie movie or television production will be a big hit amongst the younger crowd. Not the kids, the Twillight/Harry Potter crowd. And that’s a loyal group following, which equates to popularity, which equates to money in your pocket.

Howard the Human #1 makes us scratch our head. Not sure what to expect here, but the title sure isn’t very appealing. But it’s written by Scottie Young. Let’s see where this goes.

House of M #1 will be a good read. Comes with lots and lots of variants. Why exactly? We must have missed the memo.

Marvel is really pushing that female readership envelope aren’t they? Almost every single new hero these days is a female one, previous male heroes are now women and now this Wednesday Secret Wars Secret Love #1 arrives. Nothing at all wrong with reaching an audience (making more money), just that a romance comic might be a bit too soon. Seems all forced here, as though they have to cater to an audience that is not within their demo. Don’t force the issue with reaching a target audience, let it happen on its own with product selling itself. If it does pop then great, if it doesn’t, well it doesn’t. It all seems a bit contrived sometimes.

A new foe (maybe) and a new artist (Stuart Immonen) on Star Wars #8 this Wednesday. A few variants available here. The sketch variant is sold out. Remember InvestComics’ word on all Star Wars books. Buy them.

Skull The Slayer makes an appearance in Weirdworld #3. He first appeared in Skull The Slayer #1 (1975). What a fantastic Bronze Age affordable book to own. Written by Marv Wolfman, pencils by Steve Gan and cover art by Gil Kane and Al Milgrom.

Archie #2 has a huge selection of variant covers to choose from this coming week. Did we miss another memo? Anyway, the regular Fiona Staples cover absolutely kicks major butt.

ComixTribe will have a hit on their hands with Oxymoron #1. Suggest you try and find this or you’ll be looking for the second print soon instead of owning the first. Absolutely none of these comics on Ebay as of right now (the publishing of this article).

Hip Hop Family Tree #1 from Fantagraphics is sold out. Welcome Back #1 from Boom Studios is a definite read.

Valiant Entertainment continues their event this week with Book of Death #2. Lovely Pere Perez cover. This is must read stuff here folks.

The Inhumans movie will be arriving in 2019. By then, Infinity War part II will have hit the screen. A question one may ask here is, will the Inhumans pick up where the Avengers movies cease? Short answer, probably yes. Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man (additions Wasp, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision) will fill in the new Avengers team roster after the current team is dismantled in Infinity War I & II. The Avengers can and will continue with an all new lineup one day, but until then, the Inhumans will probably take the mantle for a while. It makes total sense here. Some of the Avenger stars have become way too big for their roles, commanding more money and are also getting “older” as the series progresses. Remember when the phase just started? Chris Evans? Chris Hemsworth? Scarlett Johansson? Robert Downey Jr.? And the list goes on. No one really knew if any of this would work. It did. Now that “it did” and the success has and will run its course, ending with Infinity War II (2019), the only logical monetary thing to do is…..start over. Enter the Inhumans.

Since we all know that Marvel does not own the rights to the X-Men, this will be their workaround. Their version of the X-Men and come hell or high water, Marvel will make this work. Just to drive home a point that they don’t need the X-Men, they have the Inhumans.

It’s all going to start the same way it all began back in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. Get that name everyone recognizes and get it to work. So with the Inhumans, the character that needs to be front/center and to work is Black Bolt. He’s the leader of the Inhumans. The King of Attilan. Who will be chosen to lead the way to another successful 11 year (more or less) run? Black Bolt will be the next “Tony Stark” because of the lead in to introduce the next phase. The character (the team) will play an intricate role in setting the table for everyone to follow.

The Avengers Infinity War parts I & II will probably (most likely) end many of the Marvel on screen careers. Our favorite characters will be gone. Marvel will set a new precedence in offing characters at a ridiculous clip. The reality is, Robert, Chris, Scarlett, Jeremy and all the others who have been around these movies for years are going to move on eventually to other roles other than superheroes. What better way to add finality to an unprecedented run than sending our heroes to sacrifice themselves against the greatest threat the planet and universe has ever seen, Thanos. Do not kid yourselves, there will be many deaths in the Infinity War parts I & II. In actuality, there has to be. The stadium is over capacity. There has to be closure so that the new blood can come in. That new blood being the Inhumans.

So in 2019, it’s all going to come to a head. 11 years to arrive to the greatest battle of all time. The greatest battle in cinema since dad and son went at it with their Lightsabers. It’s going to take every character fans have seen throughout the years and mash them into two movies. The Avengers cannot and will not defeat Thanos alone. Not happening. The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Winter Solider, Loki, Spider-Man, Warlock and so many more will probably appear in both films. Most will not make it to the next phase.

The comic book speculator has four years to compile their Inhumans comics library. What InvestComics has given the speculative community throughout our ten years is the ability to buy low and….sell high. This checklist is just that. Some of these books are movers right now, but their value in four years time will be immensely different. Tremendous upside here. Yes the first appearance of the Inhumans might be a bit pricey now, but it will not be anywhere near as close to the price it is now when 2019 rolls around. Think big. Think X-Men #1 (1963) or Giant Size X-Men #1 (1975). Marvel Studios’ version of the X-Men will become the next big franchise, do not miss this boat. Inhumans will be huge.

Most of these books if not all of them are extremely affordable…..for now. As time beckons, as news breaks, as announcements are made, as villains are cast, as the Infinity War movie starts coming into light, the Inhumans will become more and more of a household name and you will be very late to the party if you put things on hold until then. Be sure to thank InvestComics for throwing this early party now when the time comes.

As always, there will be missed books within the checklist below. We’re Inhuman, Ha! See what we did there?! There are many books listed. All kinds of first appearances, key issues and cool books in general. We simply do not know what the Inhumans movie will bring, so we tried to cover as many bases as possible for the speculator. If you have a comic you’d like to add, please help the fellow speculators in listing it below in the comment section. AND PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER on this site.

Fantastic Four #36 (1965) The first appearance of Medusa. Black Bolt’s main squeeze. Brought to us by the creative team of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Fantastic Four #44 (1965) The first appearance of Black Bolt’s bodyguard (cousin) Gorgon.

Fantastic Four #45 (1965) First appearance of Black Bolt (cameo) and the first appearance of the Inhumans team. Lee, Kirby and Sinnott. A must own comic if you are truly in the speculative market. This comic also serves as the first appearances of Triton and Karnak. Must own.

Fantastic Four #46 (1966) First full appearance of Black Bolt. His first cover as well. Same creative team as the previous issues and the same speculative rules apply as well. A must own here.

Fantastic Four #47 (1966) Every hero needs an adversary. A sibling at that. In this issue, Black Bolt’s insane brother makes his debut; Maximus. This comic also has the first mention and appearance of the land called Attilan.

Thor #148 (1968) The first of three consecutive, most desirable comics to own (besides the first appearance) if one is collecting key Black Bolt books. The origin of Black Bolt starts here (in a backup story). Still very affordable right now, but this will in fact change. This is also the first appearance of the Wrecker. An absolute non-factor because this comic will triple in value in a few years because of the Black Bolt origin, not because of the Wrecker. Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.

Thor #149 (1968) The continuation of Black Bolt’s origin. Must own.

Thor #150 (1968) The Inhumans origin. Must own.

Marvel Super-Heroes #15 (1968) First solo Medusa story. Black Bolt appearance.

Incredible Hulk Special #1 (1968) Hulk vs the Inhumans. Classic Steranko cover.

Will the Inhumans join in the fight along side the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy? Maybe. Maybe not, but this comic here is the first Avengers book the Inhumans appear in. Neal Adams art, Roy Thomas writes and John Buscema provides the cover. It’s also an origin story on Black Bolt and Maximus. Another must buy here.

Throughout the years InvestComics has explained that there is something within the speculative/collectors market that is just as important as the first appearance of a character. Sometimes an overlooked nugget, but most are privy to it. A characters second appearance is not only a fun get, but sometimes very affordable. Sometimes not, therein is the chance to make your decision as an investor to jump in or not. We cannot make that decision for you, nor would we. We will simply guide you and the rest is up to you.

As all of the Creator Spotlights on InvestComics, each and every one of the creators have their own uniqueness. Rob Liefeld stormed into the industry back in 1987 and took the industry by the proverbial ears, starred into its eyes and said “I’m taking over.” So he he did.

He was one of the busiest creators in the industry at one time. The man was churning out comics at a ridiculous rate. That was good for the fans because they couldn’t seem to get enough.

Check out some of Rob Liefeld’s key books in his vast career thus far. Everything from Deadpool to Jada Pinkett Smith. Yes Jada….

New Mutants #85 (1990) Cover art with Todd McFarlane. Eventually these two along with a few others will get sick of Marvel and everyone else and start their own company. Thus changing the course of comic industry history forever.

New Mutants #87 (1990) The first appearance of Cable. Pencils by Liefeld, cover art with McFarlane. A classic cover that still gets paid respect in today’s cover art.

Marc Spector, Moon Knight #19 (1990) A solo Rob Liefeld Moon Knight cover with Spider-Man and the Punisher.

New Mutants #98 (1991) Well here it is. The Holy Grail. Only fours years into his professional career, Rob hits on a character that will forever change his career and the Marvel character landscape. The cover alone has been paid respect to so many times throughout the years. Rob Liefeld introduced the world to Deadpool and Marvel had a character for the ages. Not much can be said about this comic and character that hasn’t been said already, but Rob is officially a superstar now.

X-Force #1 (1991) This comic was ridiculously hot back in the early 90’s. Too many copies released prevented it from gaining any substantial aftermarket heat. Rob pencils/inks and cover art. Many collectors these days go after the bagged issue with the Deadpool trading card. Claiming it’s an early appearance of Deadpool. It’s a card. Seriously, it’s a card, not a comic appearance.

Teen Titans #27 (2005) Nice to finally get something other than an Image/X book. Here Liefeld does the artwork, inks and cover art. Gail Simone writes.

Deadpool #1 (2008) Variant cover art.

Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market, but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

 

Click the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on the books in this article.

 

Machine Man #1 (1984) This amazing 4 issue limited series was brought to us by the late great Herb Trimpe. Barry Windsor Smith handled all four of the “transformation” covers. Overall great comic.

Mephisto Vs. … #1 (1987) Mephisto wanted to fight everyone apparently back in the 80’s. So much so he got his own limited series. Each issue featured a different opponent. The battles included; Fantastic Four, X-Men, X-Factor and the Avengers. Al Milgrom writes. John Buscema art.

Akira #1 (1988) Akira was the first major manga series to ever hit at Marvel. 38 issues in all. Amazing storytelling and art in these comics. Writer Mary Jo Duffy lead the way here. Last 2 issues in this series (1996) had Contributors Dave Gibbons, Mark Texeira, Larry Hama, John Romita Sr., Joe Mad and Warren Ellis. Near mint copies of Akira books will run a little bit in the wallet, but well worth it.

Shatter #1 Special Edition (1985) The first all computer generated (Mac) digital print comic ever by First Comics (how appropriately named). Mike Saenz had all hands on deck with this “Mac” experiment. Art/inks/colors/letter/cover. When this comic came out, it was hot. Nowadays, well that’s a different story. One can purchase this comic for less than $2 on Ebay. Go ahead, click the link or comic, buy it, you’ll own a part of pop culture history.

Iron Man Crash (1988) Here we have the first all digital (Mac) graphic novel. This time from Marvel. Mike Saenz again had his hands all over the digital first, this time with William Bates lending a hand.

Batman Digital Justice (1990) As usual it seems, DC Comics took their time coming around. Joining the digital era 5 years after the first computer generated comic. DC went big though. 116 pages of computer generated mac art featuring Digital Batman. Batman in the digital world was the grandson of Commissioner Gordon. First and last appearance of Digital Batman.

Avengers #239 (1984) David Letterman’s 33 year run ended last night. What a run it has been. On a personal note; I still own recorded VHS tapes in my storage of this show back when I was going to school. I knew I couldn’t stay up that late so I set the VCR to record the show so I could watch it when I got home. What is a VHS tape and VCR? Google it. David Letterman’s first of many appearances in comic books happened right here. Written by Roger Stern, art by Al Milgrom. Cover collaboration by Milgrom and Joe Sinnott. A keeper for any David Letterman fan. So long Dave and thanks for making me laugh!

For many years on this site, InvestComics has spoken about Marvel’s White Knight. Now he gets the Spotlight treatment. This checklist is the most extensive Moon Knight checklist on the internet. What you will find are many first appearances, key books, creator books, covers, etc. It’s absolutely a bookmark spot on your pc/phone.

So why Moon Knight? As said before, for many years InvestComics has spoken highly of this character and waiting for the moment that he breaks loose. InvestComics feels now is the time to give Moon Knight his due on the site and dedicate an entire article/checklist on him. We feel that MK is as close to breaking out as he’s ever been. A television announcement? A major motion picture announcement? Either way, it will be fantastic news for collectors and readers that follow Moon Knight.

A complex character that rivals DC’s Batman; hence “the White Knight”. Imagine if and possibly when Marvel Studios decides to go very dark, go in the direction of the Batman lure. They have their character right here. They have the history since 1975. The story is all there, the darkness, the emotion, the violence, the struggle. Let’s understand one thing here though. While the comparison is being made, he is not Batman. He never will be, so fanboys please relax. Batman is its own entity, we get that. What InvestComics is saying is Moon Knight possesses the dark ambiance as a character, just like Batman. And it would be amazing to see Marvel Studios take on a “Batman” like character. The grittiness of Moon Knight, that is like the Batman lure into moving pictures somehow. Be it T.V. or the big screen. It is time to get the Moon Knight character out there.

Avengers #501 (2004) Here is that “second artist” being referred to from earlier. David Finch first draws Moon Knight in this comic. He, like Platt will be looked at as the “go-to” when and if the Moon Knight makes it to television or the movies. Their art/style will be the foundation to which the character is based on. David Finch returns on this list again…..

Marvel Team-Up #3 (2005) Robert Kirkman, yes that one, writes a story here that includes Moon Knight in it (as filler). The headliner here is Dr. Strange. Kirkman writes a Dr. Strange story. Yep it happened. Let’s get back to Moon Knight……

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 3-27-13

Okay back from last week’s Orlando MegaCon. And wow what a productive trip it was. Many things to show everyone (interviews), many signatures to giveaway, and a special auction that will be going on Ebay soon. More on that in the InvestComics Newsletter coming out soon. So if you haven’t done so yet, sign up to the newsletter to get an early bid on a unique item that will go to a good cause. It’s quite awesome.

Terry CroninAs for the interviews, check out the InvestComics front page to watch interviews with Terry Cronin (Students of the Unusual), Tom Mumme (The Accelerators/Comic Book Men), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), and many more coming down the pike. Coming up soon; Jimmy Palimiotti, Gil Gerard, Gail Simone, Eric Esquivel, Pat Broderick, and the Walking Dead zombie Michael Koske! ….Getting back to the King of all Indie Terry Cronin for a second. I inadvertently forgot to include the signed copy of the questions he answered with Brianna Floss on the video as a giveaway/contest. Check out the photo of the actual signed Terry Cronin questionnaire that can be yours to the right. All you have to do is sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter and you will be eligible!

A special thanks to a lot of people at this year’s MegaCon. Sebastian Piccione (Sunday Knight Comics), Brianna Floss (Awesomeness), Dirk Grobb (the BEST unknown artist that will be HUGE one day soon), Rick Shea, Shaun Sorenson (Famous Faces & Funnies – for just being cool guys and having a great booth), and Shaun Cobble/Kirstie Cobble (Breaking the 4th Wall). You all made this year’s MegaCon a lot of fun and I appreciate it beyond words.

And because of the chaos of last weekend, The Breaking the 4th Wall interview with Legend Norm Breyfogle (via Youtube) went up late. Click right HERE to hear Shaun Cobble spend almost 2 hours with one of the greatest Batman artist ever.

HOT PICKS

This week fans get Guardians of the Galaxy (2013 3rd Series) #1. As spoken about already in the InvestComics Hot Picks #258, one can get the lowdown on all of the characters appearing in this title as well as the movie. Click HERE to get the scoop and a head start on these sooner than later to be hot books. Note: Rocket Raccoon is the book to have, get on that pronto. FF (2012 2nd Series) #5 will give readers the mystery of our favorite fiery redhead Medusa. Find Medusa’s first appearance in another FF book, but this one from 1965’s Fantastic Four #36. Not only does this comic give us the first Medusa, but the first appearance of the Frightful Four! This comic is brought to you by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. This explains the $750 price tag for a CGC graded 9.2. On the complete opposite side of the spectrum; Fury Max (2012 Marvel) #10 brings us the origin of Barracuda. The big guy first appeared in Punisher #31 (Max -2006). Find this laying around in the 50 cent bins. Not a bad pick up for the modern day Kingpin. Another week another death. Robin a few weeks ago and now this week in Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) #5 we hear that a major character will take a dirt nap.

The new 52 presses onward with their reintroductions. Fury of Firestorm (2011-) #18 gets a redo with the villain Multiplex. Find Firestorm #2 (1978) and buy it. Not so much for the first appearance of Muliplex, but the team that involved with the incarnation is impressive. Gerry Conway, Al Milgrom, and Bob McLeod. And look at the awesome Milgrom cover! Yes this is a keeper. Another comeback occurs in Superman (2011 3rd Series) #18 with H.I.V.E. The first appearance of H.I.V.E. is Action Comics #513 (1980). Again, much like the previously mentioned, the creators on this book are the draw here. Marv Wolman and Curt Swan give birth to H.I.V.E. Having two creators like this on a first appearance comic is quite the find.

Mister X comes back for another round. Check out Mister X Hard Candy (2013 Dark Horse) #0. Mister X first appeared in Mister X #1 (1984 – Vortex Comics) and at one time was a very hot comic. Maybe the new number one issue will heat up the back issue market.

There’s a moderate amount of number one issues (and a zero) to check out this week, but there is one that will sell out quick and command bucks in the aftermarket. Don’t say InvestComics didn’t warn you. When you come across East of West (2013 Image) #1 this week, pick it up. That is all.

Here is the rest of the pack that should catch your eye and investment savvy. Time Warp (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1, Dragon Age Until We Sleep (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Honey Badger vs The World (2013 Antarctic) #1. Honey Badger still don’t give a sh*t.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for some very cool contest. And sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to be the first on the block to know about the auction!

See you soon, invest wisely.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 8-25-10

1aaaa1catscrfeverInvestComics has cat scratch fever! Also, check out 2 Bronze Age characters that should be on your radar. All that and more….

 

 

1aaaa1actioncomics8921aaaa1shadowlandmoonkight1This week we begin our focus group on 2 extremely underrated characters that have the potential to absolutely break loose in a huge way if ever used to the capacity they are capable of. Now granted, each one of them has had success in their own way, but “really” break out? Not yet. 2 comics come out this week that remind us that these 2 need to get their due. Action Comics #892 & Shadowland: Moon Knight #1.

Let’s start with Moon Knight, well we have six volumes of Moon Knight spanning from 1980 till 2010. Yes some were mini-series, but that just meant Marvel was testing the waters to see how hot the reception might be with the limited series. Instead they received a cool one and never went “live” with a regular ongoing follow up to the minis. Many have said that Moon Knight is a blatant rip-off of DC’s Batman. If you really look at the origins and into the character development of each, It doesn’t seem too much of a rip off at all. You want to talk rip-off? Look at Rob Liefeld’s “SMASH”, now THAT is ridiculousness at the height of just being flat out unholy. Getting back to the White Knight, the recent Vengeance of Moon Knight 1aaaaaa1werewolfbynight321stMOONKNIGHT_1975_GILKANE_ALMILGROM_1001aaaa1moonknight1_2006DAVIDFINCH_VARIANT_161aaaa1marcSpectorMoonKnight55STEPHENPLATT_1993_4series has been faring rather well, the problem is so did the other regular series and they ultimately meet their demise. Writer Greg Hurwitz is doing an amazing job of keeping Moon Knight relevant. As for the art, David Finch is to Moon Knight what McFarlane is to Spidey, Adams is to Batman, Keown is to Hulk, etc. When David draws Moon Knight, his style is immediately recognized much like the “other” Moon Knight artist that MUST get kudos, Stephen Platt. Take a look at Finch’s Moon Knight #1 from 2006 and take a look at Platt’s Marc Spector: Moon Knight #55 from 1993 and you will see exactly why these 2 guys OWN this character. Both of the comics just mentioned are the first Moon Knight work from both of them and can be bought for only $4 each. A nice book to have in your collection is the Variant Moon Knight #1 (2006) from David Finch. It’s the beautiful penciled cover. Here’s the thing fans, if Marvel ever gets Moon Knight firing on all cylinders, and also decides, since THEY have their own movie studios that a film is in order, it’s going to be big. Too long Marvel has clamored for that “dark, edgy” sort of character (Ghost Rider/Blade excluded). If Marvel were to ever go for a strong PG rating (no R here, Disney says so), THIS would be a perfect movie to start with. Speaking of a starting point, a nice place a collector should start would be Werewolf by Night #32 (1975). This would be the very first appearance of Moon Knight, and features a cover by Al Milgrom and Gil Kane. This alone should be worth the price of admission, but at a much undervalued $100, this 1st appearance should be stashed away in your collection.

1aaaa1newteentitans2_1980_GPEREZ_MWOLMAN_48Action Comics #892 features Deathstroke, and he too needs HIS due. Countless appearances and series runs are the makeup of DC’s number one assassin. With DC taking their time in the comic book movie market (lets go people, chop chop) it’s a crying shame we haven’t seen the likes of a Deathstroke on film yet. It’s a crying shame we haven’t seen much of anything from DC actually, but that’s for another time. The New Teen Titans #2 (1980), 1st appearance of Deathstroke from Marv Wolman and George Perez cost ONLY $50?? This is a steal of epic proportions. We all know that DC (WB) will eventually get their act together with the movie front. Why would anyone think that Deathstroke would not be a part of a film someplace, somewhere? He will be, so get $50 together and buy a nice copy of this extremely affordable comic now before Deathstroke becomes a force like he was back in the 80’s.

1aaaa1supermanbatman75Sticking with DC, Superman/Batman #75 hits your local comic shop and will most likely fly off the shelf. This anniversary issue features names such as Levitz, J.T. Krul, Hughes, Kelly, Tucci, and the list goes on. But one name that sticks out is a previously mentioned name in the Moon Knight spotlight in this article. David Finch will be writing and penciling a story for the first time in this issue. This is great news for Finch fans.

1aaaa1namorthefirstmutant1Marvel will be dipping their toe in the pool again, the ocean actually. Namor The First Mutant #1 will be another attempt for Marvel to get this fisherman going. Although a favorite among certain fans, and a very loyal following, do not look for Namor to break through this time. Yes the first issue will sell out (thanks to a sweet Joe Quesada variant cover), but the interest will die rather quickly. Look for this comic to sustain a moderate run, but nothing substantial.

Some very interesting Independents headed our way this week. Let’s do a quick rundown of them. Not too sure which ones are due out exactly. Diamond does not have some of them listed, but check out these titles if you see them on the shelf. Ani-Max #1 from Dynamite Entertainment, this one shot is set to be a cartoon series in the near future. Dracula The Company of Monsters #1 from Kurt Busiek and BOOM! Studios looks like a good old fashioned monster book. Not sure if this next comic has been released yet, but A-10 Comics Presents #1 looks very interesting and deserves a look. A sell out for sure. Scratch 9 #1 from Ape Entertainment Comics is an appealing take on the 9 lives of a cat. This cat will be a sleeper hit so watch out for this one. Bluewater’s Nanny and Hank #1 dives into the vampire fold with a twist. And the last of our Indie’s to check out is the continuation of One with issue #2. Yes that is One #2.
