DC’s New Age Of Heroes continues this week with a new debut; Sideways #1. This particular character, as every single “New Age Hero” from this line, resembles yet another Marvel character. Sideways looks strikingly similar to Spider-Man. NOT saying this comic is DC’s Spider-Man comic and that Derek James will be bitten by a sideways insect, just looking at the surface here. Breathe fanboys, breathe. The lead character is a high schooler though! The DC solicit says “….with that much power comes great liability….”. A New York City backdrop on the cover…hmmm…um okay. The premise (powers) of leaping from dimension to dimension at will creates the excitement that we won’t be sitting in one place too long as a reader, which is always a good thing. Dan DiDio and Justin Jordan write, Kenneth Rocafort pencils. We’re so on board with this comic, so is our 10-year-old YouTube comic book reviewer Jason Katz.
New Super-Man And The Justice League Of China #20 will start off a new story line “Seas of Change” and will debut a new character.
‘Hacked” part on in Suicide Squad #35. The villain known as Hack returns. First appeared in Suicide Squad #2 (2016).
Things are looking very bleak on the cover of Titans #20. Check out “Titans Apart” part one by Dan Abnett and Paul Pelletier.

Promethea makes her DC Comics Universe debut in Justice League Of America #24 this Wednesday. Formally an America’s Best Comics creation from Alan Moore. It was quite amusing reading all of the fanboy/nerd comments when DC showed off the cover art as it was revealed that Promethea was arriving into the fold of the DCU. Comic book fans could care less as life went on for them, but it was the “others” who were severally distraught over learning of DC’s move here. Well, Alan Moore was probably irked, so the fanboy/nerd had to tag along and act accordingly to try and fit in. Seriously, calm down. It’s DC’s property and they can feel fit to do whatever the heck they want with it. It’s comic books, not the Declaration of Independence. Relax. That all said, if you’re in the market for a good read, check out the original 32 issue series from 1999. Promethea #1 is the first appearance. Last sold on Ebay for about $15.
General Thrawn of Star Wars makes his Marvel Universe debut this week in Star Wars Thrawn #1. We think. Maybe he appeared in some other Marvel Star Wars book we’re not aware of. Maybe in the background on some monitor or a cell phone photo, who knows? These speculators are so desperate to  be the first to correct us or find that first appearance on a cereal box on some panel, so that’s why we’re leaving the door ajar a bit asking if this is indeed his Marvel Comics debut. Anyway, we can tell you that General Thrawn first appeared in a Star Wars Galaxy Magazine #5 in 1995 (Topps Comics). His first “comic book” appearance came in Star Wars: Heir To The Empire #1 (1995) from Dark Horse Comics. If you feel compelled to not recognize any of that banter as the first appearance, then this book here is the first Marvel Universe appearance. If that really means anything at all really. What really matters though are creators Jody Houser and Luke Ross bringing some great story telling.
Ms. Marvel #27, the debut of the Ms. Marvels team? No seriously, take a look.
In the “just saying” department, the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl solicits are the most pretentious, annoying, try-to-hard to sell a comic, drub you can read every month. Always a long diatribe, explaining and trying to be quirky. Stop already. Just sell the book without the added nonsense, sheesh. Okay, just saying rant over. Onward we go….

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.
What a long fun ride its’ been for Robert Kirkman’s Invincible character. Making his cameo in Noble Causes Family Secrets #3 (2002) and then his first full appearance in Invincible #1 (2003). A fifteen-year run is an amazing feat. Kudos to Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and the Image Comics/Skybound team as Invincible #144 will be the last issue this Wednesday. Now onto the small screen or the big screen, animated or live action, we’ll see.
Kick-Ass #1 begins anew once again. Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. are back at the helm to bring readers the mayhem they come to expect. A new Kick-Ass vigilante makes their debut, be sure to check out who it is. Is it someone we may know already or is it someone completely new. Either way, we can’t wait to see and hear Hit-Girl kick some booty!
AfterShock Comics next hit book; Cold War #1. Creators Christopher Sebela and Hayden Sherman.

Death Of Love #1

A twenty-five cent comic book? Yep! Aspen Comics Charismagic Primer One Shot is a quarter. This primer comic catches you up with everything Charismagic. After you spend your 25 cents and getall caught up, check out Charismagic Vol 3 #1 from Vince Hernandez and Harvey Tolibao (Mr. Tolibao, this is spelled correctly).
Death Of Love #1 (Image Comics); creators Justin Jordan, Donal Delay and Omar Estevez.
Stabbity Bunny #1 proved to be a big sell out as we informed you. Now Scout Comics will bring their follow-up; Stabbity Bunny #2. This issue will sell out just like the first did. Better get your hands on one before you’re stuck with a second print instead.
Athena Voltaire #1 (Action Lab); creators Steve Bryant and Ismeal Canales. Also, from Danger Zone come two awesomely crazy books; Baby Badass #1. This craziness is brought to you by D.E. Schrader and Tim Larsen. This looks like a fun ride. And Black Betty #1 from Shawn Gabborin and Michela Da Sacco.
From Silver Sprocket; No Gods No Dungeon Masters One Shot. Creators Rachel Dukes, Lo and Andy Warner.

Smosh #1 – We informed readers on Friday that this comic was definitely one to keep an eye out on. The comic is completely sold out across the board. Variants and the regular cover. Yes we did warn readers this was a book to watch for. We hate to say we told you so, but……we told you so.

Gwenpool #0 – The incentive variant is sold out. We spoke about this too.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on 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!

Superman #23.1

New to InvestComics? Please read the Disclaimer here before proceeding…

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: Superman #23.1 10.0 (2013). This comic serves as no significance in every day collectors life, but it does have the origin of Bizarro. We do feel that Bizarro will eventually make it to either the big screen or little screen one day, but that’s not really why we have this comic featured here. If you ever wanted to own a perfect gem mint comic book, a 10.0, here is your chance for only $89 and FREE shipping. Not a bad deal for a perfect comic book.

Midnighter #12 has Apollo, Suicide Squad and Midnighter himself squaring off against a dude as powerful as Superman and as smart as Midnighter. His name is Unified and his first appearance was in the previous issue; Midnighter #11.
Neal Adams is killing it with his Superman The Coming Of Supermen comics. And check out the cover to Superman The Coming Of Supermen #4!
Green Arrow #52 features a dead Green Arrow at the hands of Deathstroke. Not really dead, but still makes for some high drama! Fantastic Patrick Zircher cover.
The Super League storyline, part 5, will bring the team Great 10 on board. Check out Batman Superman #32 for that. And just to make sure you have it, Great 10’s first appearance was in 52 #6 back in 2006. Not that many appearances under their belt in ten years. 30 in all maybe?

Dynamite Entertainment is all in with their Kings Quest #1 release. Nine (noine) covers to choose from here. The Chris Ellopoulos cover and the Colton Worley cover are our favorites.
Okay so Dynamite has this interesting comic coming out on Wednesday and it’s going to be extremely interesting to see how it all plays out. The comic is Smosh #1. Smosh is a social media conglomerate. They have 22 million Youtube subscribers and millions more in other social media outlets. They are now releasing their first ever comic book. With social media driving so much marketing around us, will Smosh use this opportunity to benefit in promoting a different medium for themselves? Will they use their media brand to sell comics?  How will all this equate to comic sales?? Something to keep an eye out on if they decide to promote via their vast media audience. Better buy this comic for the rawness of its story, it sounds hysterical, and for the possible sell out due to supply not meeting demand.

Marvel releases it’s tenth volume Punisher #1 this week. You probably did the eye roll seeing that the Punisher has another number one comic coming out. What if we told you that THIS time is a bit different? He’s something to chew on. Out of the ten volume number one issues, never did one start with a name like Becky Cloonan. Becky will be the first female writer on the start of a new Punisher series. It will be quite refreshing to get a new take on this character from a female perspective. Becky Cloonan is an all-start and has been around since the beginning of the millennium. She’s no stranger as to how comics are written or drawn for that matter. Punisher #1 this time will truly have a new outlook. One more thing, the amazing Alex Maleev variant is sold out. As is the pointless Captain America Punisher #1 cover by John Cassaday. Nice cover, but we don’t care it’s a celebratory 75th anniversary Cap cover, makes no sense not to have the Punisher on the cover, period.

InvestComics gave readers a heads up on the first ever Gwenpool comic a while back. Fans listened and bought them up. She donned the cover of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 (the one we recommended). Now Marvel is re-releasing that particular comic along with other Gwenpool appearances. Gwenpool #0 collects a bunch of Gwenpool stories including her first appearance, but that variant new blood red pool cover (that original comic we recommended), yeah it’s sold out already.
So you want another first appearance on a cover? Sure why not?! How about Spider-Gwen #8 featuring Spider-Gwen Samurai. This variant cover is from John Tyler Christopher. How about Iron Spider-Gwen first appearance? Does that tickle your fancy? She appears on a Spider-Gwen #8 variant as well. We’re not too sure who that cover is from.
Jamal Campbell’s variant Amazing Spider-Man #12 cover is a beauty, wow.

Whenever a Daredevil/Punisher comic comes out, it’s a must get. These two characters make beautiful comics together. Blindspot will join Daredevil in Daredevil Punisher #1 to TRY and take down Frank Castle. Blindspot does not have many appearances since entering the Marvel Universe in All New All Different Point One #1 (2015), his first appearance. Daredevil and the Punisher first met up in that famous/classic Daredevil #181 (1982) comic.
A few months ago Marvel gave us a first ever look at the Mexican Deadpool in Deadpool Masacre #1. It was an all Spanish written book. Now we get the English version of that exact book this Wednesday.

Aquaman, seven series number one issues, two of which were limited series. None of the regular series made it past 77 issues. What does this mean exactly? Well it means that Aquaman was never a character taken very seriously. Always on the receiving end of the joke. Nowadays things are a bit different (many thanks to Geoff Johns), although the character still holds the stigma of being a lame duck in many circles, Warner Brothers will be going all in with a solo movie release. Rumor has it that he’ll first appear in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice first, then we’ll see the solo movie a couple of years later. It’s then we’ll see if the world is truly ready for a live action Aquaman movie.

It was writer Geoff Johns that vowed to make Aquaman a cool character. He’s achieved this feat with many naysayers saying it couldn’t be done. Now the transition to film will be the defining moment for the most powerful water character in the entire DC Universe.

Below are some key Aquaman appearances throughout the years. First appearances, number one issues, appearances in other comics, etc. Debuting from 1941, there are plenty of comics to look for here. Plenty of affordable books along the way here too.

Please remember as always here on InvestComics, read the disclaimer. With that said, there will in fact be books that are not on this list. They were probably inadvertently missed. No problem, list your favorite book below or in the comment section in one of our social media outlets. Also remember that the Aquaman movie comes out in 2018, there are no right or wrong answers here.

Inferno #1 InvestComics

Captain Canuck #1 – The Canadian Superman makes his way back to the states once again. Will this time prove to be the breakthrough the character so richly deserves? 

Infinity Gauntlet #1 – Here is the introduction of Anwen Bakian. She is the new Nova. Check out the InvestComics Hot Picks #373 for the full rundown of this character and the sudden influx of the female characters coming into the Marvel Universe. The Adi Granov variant is sold out.

Inferno #1 – Speaking of sold out Adi Granov variants. This one is a no longer available from the distributor. See this weeks InvestComics Hot Picks #373 for more info on Inferno.

Providence #1 – Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore begins a new “epic tale”. Avatar Press is praising this work as a game changer for the comic industry. Six variants are available, so that certainly doesn’t change anything. Look for either Moore fans following this comic, then collectors jumping on board and or a movie company to pick this up. Or all of the above.

We begin this week with Infinity Gauntlet #1.The first appearance of Anwen Bakian and as the new Nova. Yet another strong female presence enters the realm of the Marvel universe. The original Infinity Gauntlet #1 took place in 1991. The 1991 Infinity Gauntlet was a fantastic read. As for the 2015 version, get the Adi Granov variant if you are speculating big on this character and want the most bang for your buck. Adi provides the new character front and center in this beautiful variant.

Here’s a quick free comic book speculating lesson from InvestComics regarding the influx of new female characters. Newsflash, not all first appearances (female OR male) will offer a large return within the aftermarket. Actually, some may not even have a return at all. Don’t be under this misconception that you will make money on every first appearance you buy. While we’re talking about the female character introductions, some of them are doomed to fail just like their male counterparts. Is there a possible quick buck to be made here? Maybe, probably so, but a short window may leave many stuck with a comic that everyone already has a heads up on. Don’t be misguided into believing that every single first appearance will be a hit in the aftermarket immediately following its release.

So the questions a speculator should be asking themselves regarding a first appearance of a character (female or male) are; What impact will this character have within the grand scheme of things? Will this character have a profound affect on another character(s)? Is there something completely different about them that we haven’t seen before? Does the character have a story to tell? Are they relatable? Is the origin too complex? Are they in for the long haul? Will this character get special attention with their own series? Will the company push this character too much where it seems desperate to push fans to like them, which in turn shows there is a lack of a fanbase not possibly existing really and more so just hype. Are they related to another hero/villain?; which could be a quick “wow who really cares moment?” (See Angela). Do they even look like a winner? There are so many mitigating factors that go into this, you must have the knowledge, expertize and presence in mind to be doing this for many years to get some speculating calls right on point.

The new Marvel way is the female character. They have made it abundantly clear that they want to make the female presence a strong one in their universe, which is absolutely fantastic. There will be ones that simply do not work folks, be prepared. But with all of the new female heroes being introduced, when will that big female villain be introduced and what will happen to the market then exactly? Will there be an influx of female villains coming in? Lets not kid ourselves here. Marvel likes money. So does DC. So do all companies. They should, they’re in business to put food on the table for their families. They will push the envelope as far as it needs to go to make the fanbase interested in buying their comics. If that means the new hot thing to do is hype up a bunch of new female based characters, then they will do so. Soon enough though, the female villains will arrive in droves too. Be prepared for that. Then it will become a common core overused marketing ploy. But again, not all will be successful. So any hyperbole from new speculators or inexperienced ones arriving on the scene remember this; true speculators do not lead to slaughter, they guide them to think. Know the difference here.

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

Inhumans Attilan Rising #1 The first appearance of the Attilan land is in Fantastic Four #47 (1966). Important more so if you’re into first appearances of “land”. That said, Inhumans (as said here on InvestComics) will be huge in years to come. Does this mean that Attilan will gain some momentum in the aftermarket before the Inhumans become a household name in about 4 years? The way things are these days, probably yes. And only if Attilan is part of the Inhumans lure in the theater. But lest InvestComics remind you one more time, early Inhumans comics……buy buy buy.

The new Inferno comic hits this Wednesday. Inferno #1. The original Inferno story started (prologue) in Uncanny X-Men #239 (1988). It was a massive run in mostly all of the mutant books. It was a fun read then and it’ll probably be the same this time around as well.

The new Secret Wars 2099 #1 will be the first appearance of the new Avengers 2099. 2099 used to be a hot item back in the day. It ran its course and the whole love fest faded into obscurity. 2099 has appeared since yesteryear, but to no fanfare today as it once was. Maybe times will change and fans will except it once again. We’ll see.

Nova #31…….readers alert, surprise ending here. We love surprise endings!

Captain Canuck #1 was featured on the InvestComics free comic book day article in January 2015. Given the right creative team and guidance, Captain Canuck could be a hit. Having a David Finch variant helps to start things off too. There aren’t any of these variants available on Ebay right now. Hard one to get? Great variant though! His first appearance was in Captain Canuck #1 (1975).

Check out Fight Club 2 #1 from Dark Horse. At first glance, the Lee Bermejo variant looks like it has the Incredible Hulk on the cover. Seriously, check it out. Super cool right?

Indestructible Stingray #1; This IDW comic is going to be a good read. And just in case Stingray catches on, the first appearance was in Indestructible #1 (2013). Material #1 from Image Comics; a deep semi-political thought out comic. Very serious content in this book. Looks like an award winning Oscar movie put into comic book form. A new Avatar Press comic written by the legend/sometimes eccentric Alan Moore hits this Wednesday; Providence #1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #46 sold out variant by Alberto Ponticelli.

*****PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER BELOW Article*****

Each week InvestComics will bring readers a few comics that have been long since forgotten. There is no redeeming value what so ever, but great reading value here. And that in itself is the best value any collector could get out of comics. So take a read about some of these once hot books and not so hot books back in the day. Happy hunting!

Zot #1 (1984) – This series was a popular one back in the 80’s. It’s a Scott McCloud creation. It was from Eclipse Comics, which put out some great comics. Zot lasted about 40 issues or so. The first issue is a scarce get.

Jack of Hearts #1 (1984) – One of the best D level Marvel characters ever. Back in 1984, this limited series hit with little fanfare, but was still a great read. Writer Bill Mantlo brought Jack of Hearts to a new level here. So much so (insert sarcasm here) that Jack of Hearts went on to appear about 10 more times in various comics in the next 7 years. Jack first appeared in The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #22 (Cameo). His first full appearance is in the next issue; The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #23. Here’s a cool thing here. The creator of Jack of Hearts (Bill Mantlo) teamed with the great Keith Giffen on the cameo issue, then teamed with Legend Gil Kane for the first full appearance. That’s an impressive cameo and first right? Oh Jack of Hearts where art thou?

Six From Sirius #1 (1984) – An amazingly fun four part space epic from Marvel’s imprint Epic Comics. Writen by Doug Moench and pencils by Paul Gulacy. The series did well and spawned another limited series a year later. Rumors had this coming to the big screen a few times, but who knows if that will ever happen. A great story here nonetheless.

Vigilante #1 (1983) – Boy was this a great comic back in the 80’s. With Marvel’s Punisher character gaining more popularity, DC gave fans Vigilante and it was spectacularly fun. Brought to you by the always reliable great storyteller Marv Wolman and art by Keith Pollard. Vigilante’s first appearance was in New Teen Titans Annual #2 (Adrian Chase). The series went on to last only 50 issues, but what a fantastic action packed comic book run it was. Alan Moore and Gil Kane were part of this great series. Vigilante #50 was a controversial issue because Vigilante took his own life, thus ending the series of course. A scarce series ending issue. Low print run.

The Badger #1 (1983) – Speaking of fun action packed comics, The Badger was just that. Capital Comics had a few comics that are worth looks, this was one of them. They went out of business and Badger moved on to First Comics as of issue #5. Writer Mike Baron at the helm here. A great independent title that lasted 70 issues.

Blue Devil #1 (1984) – Here is a DC rated D character that first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm #24. An engaging character that never really caught on with many, but did have a following. The series went on to last 31 issues, but Blue Devil has appeared throughout the DC Universe on a regular basis despite the non demand for him thereafter. He recently showed up in one of the InvestComics Hot Picks (#369) Justice League #40. And this book is semi-hot right not. Not because of Blue Devil.

Jemm Son of Saturn #1 (1984) – Here is the first appearance of this character in a 12 issue limited series. Jemm goes on to make brief appearances, but never takes on a leadership role. Another D level character here. An interesting limited series featuring Superman in issues 3-6. Gene Colon pencils. Jemm also appears in the recent Justice League #40.

Comic Broker Report – October 2014 (part 3)

This month I am smashing together a selection of comics I believe are worth buying at cheap prices if you can find them.  As always suggestions are appreciated and I will attempt to answer any questions or make any necessary revisions.

Like any investments comics represent a risk if you are looking to resell for profit.  Read the disclaimer under Hot Picks if you need further information.

 

2000 A.D. 377 ( First Judge Fargo )

347577-19752-126846-1-2000-a-d

Here’s a way they can show Karl Urban’s face in a Dredd sequel and give the legendary Judge an origin within a sequel.  All they need to do is cinematically un- retconn the retconn of Judge Fargo’s face as show in this issue.  Fargo and Dredd’s DNA are the same.  As fans know it just ain’t cool to show Dredd’s face.  This is the only time it was done.

Essential Sandman 4

This hard to find reprint of Lucifer’s first has yet to make a blip on collector’s radars.  When it becomes clear that Sandman 4 is out of reach in both availability and price this one should rise in value.

Essential_Vertigo_-_Sandman_4

Notable addition:

848229

Youngblood 3 ( First appearance of Supreme )

So the infamous creator of Deadpool has recently teased a Supreme film on Twitter. It appears that studios are interested in another of his creations.  This overprinted issue features Supreme’s first appearance.  As we have learned from NM 98, overprinting doesn’t seem to matter in the marketplace if the character is in demand.

afec4cb9-3670-4b76-a87b-f460a00d39d3_tn

Notable additions:

The Moore issue has many reprints that are more rare than the reg edition I have pictured below.

GLA 1 ( 2nd Squirrel Girl )

Recently her first appearance has been quietly selling for decent money on Ebay.  She’s a fan favorite with few first appearances.  2nd appearances are all the rage right now so here is hers.

2nd squirrel girl

Marvel Graphic Novel 18 ( First Agent Dooley )

Marvel_Graphic_Novel_Vol_1_18

One of my favorite actors, Shea Whigham has been cast to play this obscure S.H.I.E.L.D  agent in the upcoming Agent Carter series.  To date this is his only appearance and it’s a tough one to find.

ASM 685b ( Fredzilla appearance )

Big Hero 6 alert!  Characters from the upcoming film have few appearances outside of the mini.  This is one and it’s a difficult variant to track down.

3548529-685-variant fredzilla

Star Wars Tales 4 ( First Ben Skywalker )

As the new film release approaches I will be randomly mentioning key issues that have had some movement on the back issue marketplace.  To my knowledge this is Ben’s first and only.

SWT 4 first ben skywalker

Here is some additional Deadpool speculation.  Supporting characters can drive up prices ( See X-Force 2 ).  These two guys are popular amongst Deadpool readers but there is no guarantee that they will ever be in the film.

Cable & Deadpool 38 ( First Bob Agent of Hydra! )

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 1/15/14

We all know the legal issue behind the whole Miracleman charater right? If you don’t, you can either Google it or click here for a quick synopsis into the legal mess. We’re not here to discuss legal matters so we’re going to skip that part and head straight into the speculative market. With that, Miracleman is back in the hands of Marvel Comics, thus Miracleman (2014) #1 will be coming out this Wednesday. Being a big deal for Marvel they are accompanying the number one release with a healthy dose of variant covers. Eight at last count. There are a few gems in here. The Joe Quesada variant, coming in at a price point of about $60, a Mark Buckingham variant at $75, and the prize variant from John Cassaday will cost you around $150. As always, grade these (shoot for a 9.8 or higher) as a CGC signature series to maximize your dollar.

[scrollGallery id=330]

The Marvelman character first appeared as Miracleman in the Eclipse Comics’ Miracleman #1 (1985). The series was written by legend Alan Moore until issue number 17. (Insert sarcasm here) Some other guy by the name of Neil Gaiman took over the series from there. It’s not too often these days you have creators of this magnitude like Moore and Gaiman doing a back to back. Moments to relish, and by the way if you are thinking about getting either of these books or some of the others within the series, you could check Ebay. There are still a few affordable ones for the taking.

Revolutionary War Dark Angel #1 will feature the return of Marvel UK’s Dark Angel. She looks extremely awesome as far as geek eye candy. Let’s hope the character lives up to her stellar appearance. If she does and takes a step toward stardom, you should have her first appearance in your long box. A step in the right direction starts with a sold out comic, which Dark Angel has done here.  Check out the 25 cent boxes at your local shop or convention for Hell’s Angel #1 (1992) for the debut of Dark Angel.

Dark Angel

DC knows a good thing when they have one. With their successful Injustice title comes Injustice Year Two (2013) #1. It’s almost sold out at the distributor, so you better grab it if you want it. The first series sold out quickly and commanded some nice aftermarket cash.

From Injustice we go to justice with Justice League 3000 (2013) #2. Issue two here will introduce the new villain group named Locus. Locus first appeared in JLA: Year One #1 (1998). Written by Mark Waid, and art by Barry Kitson….oh yes, fun times indeed.

Dark Horse brings us Skyman (2014 Dark Horse) #1 this week. An interesting Obama variant will coincide with the release of the regular cover. Aren’t we past the president variant covers? Guess what? The variant is sold out, so we aren’t over the president variants just yet. Also, did you know that the first Skyman character appeared in 1940’s Big Shot Comics #1? Awesome cover too.

The most overused story concept and character joins forces this week. Night of the Living Deadpool (2014) #1 will have Deadpool in yet another number one issue, and the storyline will focus on zombies.  So what does this equate to? An almost sold out comic, fans just can’t get enough apparently!

Be sure to check out the sold out variants and possible soon to be regular cover issues; Disney Kingdoms Seekers of the Weird (2014) #1, Curse (2014 Boom Studios) #1,  Lil Battlestar Galactica (2014) #1,  Black Dynamite (2013 IDW) #1,  EGOs (2013) #1, and Inhumanity Spider-Man (2014) #1.

See you next week. Invest wisely.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 7-31-13

(Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and more so for entertainment purposes. Any opinions or expression of investments should be used as a judgement upon the investor, not InvestComics. Please use your own discretion when investing and have fun.)

Last week was a fantastic time to pick up those back issues to build up your portfolio. This week it seems would be a great time to do so again. A limited amount of books covered this week means more time to sift through those long boxes.

A quick shout out goes to @GQComics for giving InvestComics a heads up to one of their Hot Picks Todd The Ugliest Kid, completely missing the story on Adult Swim putting Todd into development for a possible series. @GQComics asked if it would be wise to sell at this time. The answer is no, not just yet. The news is still too fresh to be dumping anything. If the comic falls into “development hell” and never sees the light of day, well then it truly is up to the speculator to make that call as early as possible to dump. That said like mentioned already, it’s just too early to dump. Be sure to track the progress, keep the ear to the ground here because the $50 comic can easily fall back to earth if you delay too long. So another Hot Pick finds its way to everyone’s bank account. Sure does put the non-collectors (non-believers) in check doesn’t it? Again, special thanks again to @GQComics for the heads up; make sure to follow GQ on Twitter.

Tom Strong finds his way back into the DC Universe/Vertigo line. Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 will find Tom Strong in a rough spot to start off his series. The original Tom Strong first appeared in 1999’s Tom Strong #1 under DC’s America’s Best Comic label. The series was written by one of the most enigmatic writers of our time, Alan Moore. The original series lasted only 36 issues. Mr. Moore bowed out by issue number 22, leaving the series to some of the most talented writers in the industry today. Names like Vaughan, Brubaker, and Casey. Even they couldn’t save the series from its ultimate demise. Alan Moore would return for the series finale in issue #36. The number one issue should be sitting in some one dollar bin at your local shop or convention. Not a hard book to find at all.

A few number one issues are coming our way this week with two standouts, the first being Captain Midnight (2013 Dark Horse) #1 and Skyward (2013 Action Lab) #1. Call this a gut speculation here, Interesting plot lines from two very good publishers. A recipe for possible good things to come! Another interesting book to check out is Collider (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1. This might be a sleeper. More government plots here, but these stories seem to be the “go to” these days. 3 Guns (2013 Boom) #1 will continue where the Denzel/Walberg movie 2 Guns left off. Great sequel name! How original!

Marvel feeds readers more Wolverine (coincidence with the movie debuting this week? Think not.). Wolverine In The Flesh (2013) #1 brings a tale with a Top Chef involved. Um, okay.

(Insert sarcasm here) Hey guess what else we get from Marvel this week?! A new status quo issue! Wow! Fearless Defenders (2013) #7 will “change things!” Thank goodness for that nice cover from Mark Brooks or no one would care. Was that thought said out loud?

A latest contest announcement will be coming in the InvestComics newsletter, so be sure to sign up for that to be the first to find out!

SINISTER DEXTER Comes to IDW!

SINISTER DEXTER Comes to IDW!

2000 AD’s Deadly Duo Finally Comes to America!

tumblr_mn7natp7Cy1s0pt79o1_1280

San Diego, CA (May 24, 2013) –It was announced today that the exploits of 2000 AD’s Finnigan “Finny” Sinister and Ramone “Ray” Dexter will be hitting American shores when the long-running world of SINISTER DEXTER is reprinted by IDW in 2014! The pair of futuristic “gun sharks”—read: hit men—will be roaring in hot from Downlode, the European mega-city they call home, and they’ll be bringing an unbelievable cast of characters with them! From the original stories written by Dan Abnett and drawn by Andy Clarke, SINISTER DEXTER chronicles a vibrant, madcap world of futuristic intrigue and action. Deadly ninjas, acrobatic flying car chases, shape-shifting robot assassins, a devious Yakuza? All in a day’s work, dear reader. All in a day’s work.
 
‘”With its deft mix of black comedy and gritty urban action, the exploits of Sinister Dexter have remained a popular mainstay in 2000 AD for the past 17 years,” said 2000 AD’s Editor-in-Chief Matt Smith. “With IDW reprinting a selection of their tales, I hope a whole new audience is going to enjoy meeting the gun-lovin’ criminals.”
 
“I’m happy to expand our relationship 2000 AD,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “It’s been a pleasure working with the guys there, and even moreso because the books that we’re producing together are such fun things to expose to this market in an even grander way. Abnett and Clarke’s Sinister Dexter stories are gritty, crazy, and action-packed bursts of adrenaline and I can’t wait to set them loose among American comic readers.”
 
“IDW have demonstrated a real passion for 2000 AD’s stories and we’re delighted to develop our relationship with them further,” said Ben Smith, Publishing Manager for 2000 AD and Rebellion. “It’s fantastic to see the amazing work of two such significant creators as Dan and Andy set to reach even more readers.”
 
While specific plans have yet to be announced, it’s certain that between the thousands of pages of explosively excellent material, there are more than a few worthwhile collections to be had!

Welcome to the InvestComics Comic Hot Picks for 9-26-12.

This week the new Judge Dredd film (Dredd 3D) opened and InvestComics wants to send out a little reminder to fans that may have missed this, but the composer of the film; Paul Leonard-Morgan was interviewed on InvestComics. It was an extensive/detailed Interview that covered everything in Mr. Leonard-Morgan’s career from music acts like Snow Patrol to composing a film. Fantastic stuff here folks. Click right HERE to read that interview.

DC Comics continue their rampage of Zero issues, so without any further ado……

[scrollGallery id=167]

The flagship character of DC gets his zero treatment this week. In Superman #0 Jor-El learns about the imminent destruction of Krypton. This may fall into the who cares category, but then again as these zero issues come out, there seems to be a lot more of the “eh’” factor coming in. Superman first appeared in…….well if you don’t know this, close the browser you’re reading this on and go watch some Adventure Time.

Savage Hawkman #0 and Flash #0 share a similarity this week, both of them first appeared in the same book. That comic is Flash Comics #1 from 1940. A cool book to own because you get a two for the price of one deal!

Teen Titans #0 main focus will be on the Tim Drake origin, but do we really care about Tim anymore? So let’s look for the debut of the Teen Titans instead. This happened all the way back in The Brave and the Bold #54 (1964). An investment worth looking into as oppose to the first Tim Drake.

Another nice affordable first appearance issue would be Firestorm #1 (1978) to coincide with the Fury of Firestorm #0 issue. The debut of Firestorm was accompanied by names like Al Milgrom, Joe Rubinstein and Klaus Janson. Imagine Firestorm on the big screen, how cool would that be? Warner Bros. really needs to jump on this superhero movie stuff, so behind it’s comical.

Back to creator Klaus Janson for a minute in relation with Batman The Dark Knight #0 coming out. Batman has always been the Dark Knight, but never did it culminate more so than the debut of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1 by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. The true history and debut of the “Dark Knight” happened in 1986.

Aquaman #0 will continue to show why Aquaman is a total badas* these days. Check out this zero issue for the first look at Atlantis. The water man’s first appearance came in 1941’s More Fun Comics #73.

DC Comics is dead set on proving that there is a place for old western style comics (see romance comics?). Although the western comics are holding up some, we await to see the true test here….time. All Star Western #0 is brought to you by Palimiotti and Gray. Having these two creators will always be a reason for these comics to sell! Learn how Johan Hex got that scar on his face in this zero issue. The first All-Star Western comic debuted in 1958; All-Star Western #58. A dynamic tandem on this book as well. Carmine Infantino on pencils and a Gil Kane cover. With legends like that on a book, who needs more of an excuse to get this comic?

Staying on topic of legends, Justice League Dark #0 gives the early day story of a character named John Constantine. John’s true early day story, or debut if you will happened in The Saga of the Swamp Thing #37 (1985). Penciled by Rick Veitch and written by legend Alan Moore.

Now going moving onto the modern day debuts we come to Red Lanterns #0 and Talon #0. The Red Lantern Corp first sprung up in Green Lantern #25(2007), much thanks to a creator building his own indelible mark on the industry; Mr. Geoff Johns. Scott Synder and Greg Caputo are putting their stamp on the New 52 Batman series. Churning out stories that are selling like hot cakes. Expect Talon #0 to sell out quickly. Talon was created in the New 52 Batman series in issue number two from this past year.

And rounding out the zero issues are these fillers, Batman Incorporated #0, Voodoo #0 and I Vampire #0. Sigh….

[scrollGallery id=168]

An interesting number one issue is headed this way from DC; National Comics Rose and Thorn #1. Look for Thorn or Rose, well it’s the same person in their her debut in Flash Comics #89 from 1947. Think she would have gone to find good help with this split personality disorder by now?

Quick shots: Mark Waid debuts his Steed and Mrs Peel #1 from Boom! Studios. Fine and Private Place #1 from IDW is brought to you by Peter S. Beagle. Happy #1 from Image Comics may be a sleeper. Fashion Beast #1 (Avatar Press) from Alan Moore! Godstorm #0 (Zenescope) and Westward #1 look to be interesting reads.

Check out the covers of the week below. Everything from Marvel, DC to Zenescope!

Until next week, Invest wisely.

This week InvestComics will be featured for the very first time on Comics Price Guide. Special thanks goes out to Tom Gordon III for getting this done and having InvestComics & Comics Price Guide join forces. More in the press release later this week about the team up.

InvestComics weekly Hot Picks will be featured on the front page of Comics Price Guide. The Hot Picks for InvestComics have been coming out for almost 2 ½ years now (web based) on a consistent basis before Wednesday’s NEW comic book day. The Hot Picks brings you up to speed on what comics are coming out that particular week that the comic collector should be looking out for. For example, comics with a first appearance, new costume, new creative team, first work of a creator, etc. Hot Picks also informs you the buyer of Golden/Silver/Bronze and Modern age comics to buy/hold or sell.

The key to remember while collecting is to always have fun and make wise choices when buying into the market. Not every comic will be a winner, and you won’t be able to retire collecting comic books. The speculative market is a market that does require some skill set in order to make some short term or long term investment’s, so always invest wisely.

InvestComics also has reviews, indie columns, fan films, press releases, movies, toy/video games, and so much more, including a very hot column called 10 for the Pros which is a rapid fire question session. Creators like Paul Levitz, Bill Sienkiewicz, Mike McKone, Rob Guillory, Whilce Portacio, Chuck Dixon, Frank Cho, Joe Jusko, and MANY more have already done the rapid fire, so check it out!

Okay more to come in the press release later this week, so keep your eyes open for it. Now on to the Hot Picks…..

Alan Moore will be coming out with his latest creation this week, Neonomicon #1 from Avatar . Alan Moore has a body of work that very few writers, if any could be matched with. His legacy will forever be known for Watchmen with Dave Gibbons. This classic happen to come out 6 months after Frank Miller’s Dark Knight classic, thus both Frank and Alan cemented their names in the comic industry within the same year of 1986. They single handily changed the way comic books are written, and comics were catapulted into a serious side never seen before in this medium. A beauty of a nugget sits out there for a mere $12. One of Alan Moore’s first published works is Doctor Who magazine #35 from 1979. Could anyone imagine that this comic is out there for only $12?? An absolute steal if found in NM condition….yes good luck with that. The Watchmen #1 comic goes for the same $12 price. Which would you rather own?

1aaaTrueBlood11aacharmed1One of HBO’s very hot series will be making its way to a comic book shelf by you. True Blood #1 will sell out so quick that you’ll probably here the announcement of a second print coming out before you see the first print. The biggest drawback to the release of True Blood #1 would be the 6 variant covers. Vampires, sex, blood……this smells like a fun time though! Want to have more fun? Buy the variant photo cover, CGC this comic and sell it on ebay to a True Blood fanatic. You’ll easily make twice your money on this one. Speaking of hot series, anyone remember Charmed?  Zenescope  Entertainment will continue the television series in issue number one.

1aaAMZSPM638Okay, so Marvel is going to finally reveal what was whispered into MJ’s ear 2 years ago! Or has it been longer than that?? Who cares, looks like we will be getting some answers that many of us Spidey fans have been clamoring for! Amazing Spider-Man #638 will start a 4 issue story arc that will all be double sized to explain lots and lots of things. Yes Joe Q, (Insert Rickey Ricardo voice now) you have some splaining to do! And we will be with you every step of the way, make good on this one.

1aaaMM23SILVERAGEbegins_25Miracleman Classic Primer #1 will catch everyone up to speed on the character. So now would be a better time than never to catch up on a couple of prime issues from the Eclipse series. Check out issue number one of course brought to you by….oh wait, weren’t we just talking about this guy? Yes Alan Moore helped reintroduce Miracleman to the comic book lure with much fanfare. That Miracleman comic was a very hot item back in 1985. Alan Moore was about to help change the landscape of comic book writing a year later with Dave Gibbons. We already went over this didn’t we? Anyway, issue number one is a gimme at only $10, but bounce over to issue #15 and now we’re talking. This Death of Kid Miracleman is a rare find and prices in at the $75 mark, “The” gem in the Eclipse MM run. 2 issues later another legend came along, Neil Gaiman. Thus began the Golden Age MM ($20). The Silver Age MM began in issue #23 ($25). That’s a quickie of some of the MM comics you should look out for, more to come in the weeks and months ahead on Miracleman.

Batman # 686  In case you might not have heard, but Batman is dead. Well that’s what DC wants everyone to believe; too bad Marvel released that Obama/Spidey book the same week Batman supposedly died. Not much play for Bruce taking the dirt nap (maybe it’s because we all know he’s coming back). Okay so DC dropped the ball (again) on this one, but they are back with a biggie. Anyone remember how big the Superman story written by Alan Moore called ‘Whatever happened to the man of tomorrow’ was? Yes it’s still one of the best Superman stories ever told. Now enter Batman. Alan Moore isn’t returning for this one, but Neil Gaiman is coming on board for the ‘Whatever happened to the cape crusader?’ 2 part story that promises to be a high-quality, well written, demandable comic book. Andy Kubert is on board to work his great illustrations into a comic that has mass appeal already. Kubert only helps the value of this comic. Do not miss this comic collectors, it’s going to be a sure fire hit with multiple printings to follow.

Masquerade # 1  Here’s a comic coming from Dynamite that has some potential. Good storytelling, good artwork and a virgin variant from John Romita Sr. The variant, if you could get it should be bought. A John Romita Sr. variant is a great treasure to have, a virgin variant is even better. Buy this one and hold on to it for a long time. Romita Sr. will be legend one day, or maybe he already is, whatever your opinion, hold onto that as well. It’s yours.
