Anyone notice how in the first issue of the new Captain Phasma series, ‘she’ never took off ‘her’ mask? When the unmasking does happen, maybe it’s not who you think it is. Maybe we’re wrong, just a hunch, but maybe we’ll find out in the latest issue this week; Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi – Captain Phasma #2. We know it’s almost near impossible to be someone else, but anything is possible in comic books.
Marvel claims Invincible Iron Man #11 as ‘a prologue to one of the biggest Iron Man stories in modern history.’ That’s a big claim considering how many great stories have been told thus far. Writer Brian Michael Bendis will be the one delivering on Marvel’s promise. If anyone can pull it off, BMB would be the one.

Buy/Bid – Vengeance #1

Buy/Bid – America #7

Some Venomized covers are still turning heads. Avengers #11 Venomized cover by Tyler Kirkham will do  just that this Wednesday. As will Julian Totino’s Aunt May Venomized cover; Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man #4.
Venom #154 could be the first ‘silent’ Venom issue. The story is a first of its kind because it looks at the perspective from the symbiote and not its actual host, in this case Eddie Brock. So just a guess here that it could be a ‘silent’ issue. Creators Mike Costa and Paulo Siqueira.

Frank Cho pays homage to Jim Steranko’s King Size Hulk #1 with his Totally Awesome Hulk #23 cover.
The origin of America Chavez in America #7. Brought to you by creators Gabby Rivera, Annie Wu & Jen Bartel. America first appeared in Vengeance #1 (2011). The subtle Bruce Springsteen Born In The U.S.A. cover swipe is a nice touch from Joe Quinones.
The hot Venomverse series continues this Wednesday; Venomverse #3 from Cullen Bunn and Iban Coello.
Marvel’s Generations this week…..Generations: Ms. Marvel & Ms. Marvel #1. Creators; G. Willow Wilson and Paolo Villanelli.

Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
La Muerta Vengeance #1 from Coffin Comics; Brian Pulido, Mike MacLean & Joel Gomez. Brian Pulido first started this La Muerta character as a successful graphic novel Kickstarter campaign and released the first comic book in 2016; La Muerta: Descent #1. We believe Brian will eventually get this character to be optioned for television or an animated series one day. It’s that bad as*.

Alterna Comics introduces a new character to their already fantastic line-up in Mr. Crypt #1. Brought to you by Troy Verasis and Aleksandar Jovic. In case you haven’t noticed, Alterna Comics has turned the comic biz upside down on its proverbial head with their ‘old style’ comic print comic books. It’s a hit and you should join in on the way of the future….past….well you get the idea. It’s only a matter of time before one of the big 2 gauge the success (and cost!) of these comics and start their own throwbacks. All thanks to Peter Simeti and his team of Alterna Comics. The best part of Alterna Comics throwback print style comics…..they’re creatively well done too. Get on it, enjoy the nostalgia before the two big brothers come by and ruin the fun by watering down the comeback concept.

Hot Picks Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #399 and new comics coming this Wednesday 11/25/15. Click the link to read the article now.

Here is the Hot Picks #399 video below:

Moon Girl 1

Hot Pick Of The Week – Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Click To Buy/Bid

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Here’s the first appearance of Moon Girl and an overall fun book to check out this week. A keeper here.

Dark Knight III – Huge expectations for DC and fans alike. Spoiler alert coming up in case you don’t know, so discontinue reading if need be……..Frank Miller said that Carrie Kelly will take the Batman mantle in this latest installment. Wow another gender change for a big character, how original.

Silk #1 – InvestComics has and will always be on team Silk. Originality within this character brings the cultural and gender into play making for a possible deeper character driven hero for years to come.

Henchgirl #2 – Scout Comics has done it again. A sold out number issue (short print run) and a sold out number two issue. Henchgirl is hitting a cord with fans.

Jacked #1 – Maybe Hollywood or a television studio will come-a-knockin’ with this story. Or maybe not, but a DC/Vertigo title written by Eric Kripke will be an interesting book.

Well we cannot avoid the elephant in the room this week, so lets get it out the way shall we? Dark Knight III. Yep Dark Knight III and it’s 48 variant covers at last count. Absurdity at its finest here. 48 covers, is this truly necessary? Of course it’s not, but money is important for business, so while not necessary, it’s business. Before moving on, we want to point out that what you’re about to read regarding all of the hype regarding DKIII you may have heard here before over the years, just some rehash, an observation, some added numbers…..

Here are some things to consider if you’re in the market for that rare rare crazy variant. The first and most obvious, well maybe not so obvious to the potential buyer, but if you spend a whole bunch of money on a “rare” DKIII variant, you just bought a comic book “cover” for say….$150. So now you have yourself a “nice” pretty cover with the SAME EXACT insides as probably 1 million other comic books. Absolutely NOTHING different within the confines of YOUR pretty expensive cover’s insides as opposed to the other million copies. So your options are one or two things after you make your $150+ purchase. Get it graded (9.8 or more) and quadruple your intake (poor sap buying that! Wow) or hold onto it thinking you’ll have a comic to send your children to college with, which will never happen. Here’s a wake-up call. First and foremost, Dark Knight III will probably be a great book, better than Dark Knight II, but NOT better than Dark Knight I. Let’s have a clear understanding of something here, if you are an avid collector you will not have to read ahead here, but this is for the newer collectors and the others that have been brainwashed by websites trying to over-hype 48+ covers. The Dark Knight Returns (1986) came out right before Watchmen #1 (1986). Whether you are a fan of either of these books or not, these were game changers. Fifty years from now, pop culture will refer back to 1986’s Dark Knight and Watchmen books. It will not refer back to 2015 Dark Knight III. It just won’t happen. So lets do a quick reminder before the hate mail, Dark Knight III will probably be a great read. Better than II, but it probably won’t be a game changer. A game changer will always be a reference, a shape, a starting point, a long term monetary gain. Here is the pricing of three recent graded copies of DKI (1986) and what they sold for; 9.4 $220, 9.6 $239, 9.8 $750. Don’t you feel the pricing should be just a bit higher here, considering the iconic attachment of this book right? Well it probably would be, but one slight setback, too many copies out there. According to the CGC Census there are 344 9.8 graded copies and 725 at 9.6 and 350 at 9.4. and so on…..that’s a whole lot of comics. This is the reason the pricing will steadily increase over the years, but will never bounce to ridiculous numbers quickly like DKIII will in the immediate interim. Now lets relate ALL of this to Dark Knight III. The other speculative sites will inform buyers that this will be a book for the ages. Newsflash, It’s not going to be, but most buy into it and will jump all over it. All of those crispy 9.8 rare variants of Dark Knight III will go out to the grading companies and now you will eventually far exceed the 344 copies from 1986 that grade at 9.8. They will sell at or ABOVE the last sold copy from 1986. Does this make sense at all to you? Oh yes yes, it’s a special cover that’s right. The inside is still the same right? Yes yes it is, we’ve already established that. But man is this a great money grab right? There will be over hyped buyers listening to these other sites and essentially making a bad purchase, but readers here will be smart and sell their books if they can double/triple their money. Do not let greed set in, you will eventually lose.

Dark Knight I (1986) contained the first appearance of Carrie Kelly. It was written Frank Miller. Art by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Dark Knight III this Wednesday will be written by Brian Azzarello and ….Frank Miller? Back to that in a sec. Art by Andy Kubert /Klaus Janson. So it’s said that Frank Miller had nothing to do with the story. DC attached his name as though Miller was an intricate part of the story, but he kind of wasn’t. Frank Miller did state though that he will be THE writer on Dark Knight IV. Oh joy, 80 variants for that one we hope!

Will Dark Knight III contain that all too important first appearance to keep its lure? Will the story be so groundbreaking that it changes the comic book medium? This is the only way in the comic collectors hobby that DKIII will sustain its long term monetary value in ANY way. Otherwise what you will have in that $600 Jim Lee variant cover is…..a pretty cover. Good luck with that. Invest that $600 on a Silver Age or Bronze Age book.

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

In closing regarding DKIII. Before anyone sends the hate mail we are not suggesting you do not buy DKIII or any of its variants. We are not down on DKIII. We’re not saying NOT to buy it. You absolutely should. It’s probably going to be a cool read, but what we are saying is not to get caught up in the hype and waste your hard earned money. If you dig a variant and it’s expensive, but YOU dig it, then by all means buy it. Buy what you like because you connect with it. We like to inform collectors of the reality of things and not the fantasy when it comes to speculation. Barring any major introductions or groundbreaking storytelling, this series at the end of the day will be just another good Batman story. Which is fine.

NOTE: To any of the Frank Miller fans, did you know we have a Frank Miller checklist on InvestComics? Yep. Right HERE. Have fun and click on those Miller books you either didn’t know about or forgot about altogether!

(insert sarcasm here) Oh my goodness! It’s Harley Quinn on the cover of a Deathstroke comic! Will Deathstroke #12 be just like the RARE Scooby Doo Team-Up #12 Harley Quinn comic that InvestComics did NOT recommend and sold for a whopping $5.99 on Ebay last week?! No, but it’s a bad as* team-up and should be checked out.

Check out Justice League 3001 #6 as a new race of New Gods make an appearance.

A must read new DC/Vertigo title this Wednesday; Jacked #1. We can see this “ordinary” character becoming a movie or TV series one day.

Image Comics informs their Black Magick readers that a major character introduction will come in Black Magick #2. Sticking with the tip-off deal here from Image, Rumble #9 is set to introduce two major characters into the fray.

WWE fans may want to be put on alert as Ringside #1 from Image Comics hits this week. A violent wrestling story from writer Joe Keatinge. No John Cena here….maybe that’s for the best?

Saga #31 will return its story line to real time.

Back in 2010 InvestComics pointed out a nice cheap Jack Kirby number one issue/first appearance. It was Devil Dinosaur #1 (1978) and a near mint raw copy was selling for about $9. King Kirby was the writer, artist, editor, and the cover artist of this book for most of the nine issue run. A graded 9.8 PGX graded sold last week for about $74. Still a bargain actually! Why the mention of Devil Dinosaur? Well a sleeper book may hit this Wednesday so don’t nap on it. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 will be a good book. A few variants available, but the regular Amy Reeder cover is our fav. Also a note here and maybe more important than anything we just said. Back in 1978 not only was Devil Dinosaur’s first appearance in the number one issue, but it was also the first appearance of Moon Boy. Guess who’s first appearance is in the 2015 number issue? Yep, Moon Girl.

Regular visitors to the InvestComics website know that we are big fans of Silk. Always have been. We have always felt there is more upside to her character than many other new female characters within the Marvel Universe. Silk #1 in it’s second volume already hits this Wednesday. Written by Robbie Thompson and art by Stacey Lee. You’re going to have to fight through a lot of the Silk #1 volume 1 to find Silk #1 volume 2 on Ebay right now. The popularity of the latest series should overtake the current 300+ listings of volume 1. Or after you click the link, you can input “vol 2” on the search bar! Some still come up differently on Ebay, so you’ll have to try different searches; i.e. Volume 2, Silk #1 vol 2, Silk vol 2 #1, etc…..

So what does Marvel do if they A: don’t want to pursue the Rom character back from obscurity or B: never cared enough to even think they want Rom back so they lost out to IDW Publishing in getting Rom back first even if they did in fact want him. Confused yet? We are. Anyway, comic fans know by now that Rom Space Knight is now at IDW Publishing. With that, Marvel will try to one up IDW this Wednesday with Venom Space Knight #1. No for real, no joke. No Amazing Spider-Man #300 Venom here, no this is Venom Space Knight! Marvel put writer Robbie Thompson and artist Ariel Olivetti on this book. They’re looking for a pop here. Will they get it? Hmmm…..maybe not? Maybe? But the Mike Deodato Jr. variant is awesome though isn’t it?

What happened to Fiona Staples on Archie?? Welcome artist Annie Wu to Archie #4. Fantastic Paul Renaud variant cover.

InvestComics gave you a heads up on Henchgirl #1 from Scout Comics. It sold out it’s short print run rather quick. Now the followup; Henchgirl #2. Will the second issue dictate where the series is headed? Will fans pick up on it? If you dug the first issue, show your support. Oh wait wait, we forgot to mention, Henchgirl #2 is sold out. Maybe the fans are speaking out already!

The creative team of Brenden Fletcher and Annie Wu will be on Black Canary #1. Writer Brenden Fletcher has turned things around for the Batgirl title and looks to make some noise with this title. A great read coming here.

Look for a quick sell out as Amanda Conner leads the way with Harley Quinn and Power Girl #1. Always a great book with all the girls; Amanda, Harley, and Power Girl.

Justice League of America #1 features superstar creator Bryan Hitch as writer/artist. A fantastic way to kick things off. Having over 9 variant covers is not. The over saturated variant cover market is taking a huge hit these days. There are too many variant copies with no takers. Too many times dealers are either left with them or the “want to be speculator” is left with them. There is an art to collecting the variant market. Not every single variant will produce an aftermarket buzz. Be vigilant in knowing the difference in a variant comic and a hot aftermarket variant cover. About 4 or so months ago, an $800 Spider-Gwen variant existed. That same 9.8 sold for $575 yesterday. All the other 9.8’s within the $550-$700 range last sold in either March or April. The same with all the Star Wars variants. Those were a hot ticket when it hit. The thing InvestComics pointed out with that comic was this; if the guts (inside) of the comic brings nothing relative to the market, be it an introduction, a new villain, a new plot twist, or anything pertaining to the possibility that it will appear in the new film, then you are dead. Too many copies having the exact same guts brings nothing to the speculative table except for those nice covers. Covers don’t sell books. At first they may, eventually there will have to be substance. Although a fantastic story is told in Star Wars #1, all 100+ variants are the same story. This is only one of the few factors in buying variant comics. And as for the Spider-Gwen, the market is correcting itself. While the inside offers the first appearance, the market is a bit out of its league right now. Don’t get caught up in the hyperbole. So let’s circle all the way back around, if Justice League of America #1 has something to offer on the inside of all of those pretty covers, then you’re on to something. If it’s just great storytelling from Bryan Hitch with no significant introduction or otherwise, you have yourself a nice variant for $50 that will be worth $10 in six months time. Be aware of what you are buying.

A new 12 issue series from DC; Prez #1 will be on the shelf this Wednesday. Last we checked, Prez #1 (1973) was a he not a she. Every new comic these days seems to be an introduction of a new female character or what was once a HE is now a SHE to some degree. Thor, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Iron Man, Nova, etc….

Writer Paul Levitz brings Doctor Fate #1 to life. Always a great read with Paul at the helm.

Finishing out the DC number one issues; Doomed #1 and Martian Manhunter #1

A speculative book to watch for this Wednesday will be Wonder Woman #41. A new villain is introduced. Must check this one out. The Brian Bolland variant (cover B) is quite awesome. Here is a perfect example of what was spoken about earlier regarding variants. The guts of this comic has something to offer. Although the variant is a cover B cover price, if it was a $15 variant, it may be worth the pick up. Something more to offer than a pretty cover. The print run is a huge factor in the variant market as well. Like I said, there are a few mitigating factors that go into purchasing a variant comic.

Marvel’s Deadpool Secret Secret Wars #2 will be part of the Spider-Gwen craze. How about Gwenpool? Spider-Gwen as Deadpool sounds like a match made in aftermarket heaven doesn’t it? Let’s see if Gwenpool ever gains traction, if she does, she first appears right on the cover as part of the Gwen cover variants all over Marvel’s books right now. Only one of these available on Ebay right now.

Squadron Sinister #1 looks like a great book. Probably looking at a second print here soon. Check out the first appearance “cameo” of Squadron Sinister in Avengers #69 (1969) (Last page). First full appearance in Avengers #70 (1969).

Marvel’s Runaways comic back in 2003 was a hot ticket at one time. Runaways will get their restart button pushed with Runaways #1 this Wednesday. First appearing in Runaways #1 (2003) with writer Brian K Vaughan. Many first appearances throughout all of the Runaway titles. The variant this Wednesday is sold out.

A real cool book with lots of different Thor characters. What’s not to love? Thors #1 will be a great read and as always with these new titles and relaunches, look out for the sneaky hot intro.

The Spider-Gwen craze continues with the Gwenverine variant (Cover B) on Old Man Logan #2. No really, we’re not making this up.
