DaredevilYou hear that? You hear the screams in the distance? The whining? The crumbling of the walls? The collective sigh?

The internet may have finally broken. Yes Ben Affleck will be the new Batman in the Superman vs. Batman film. The simple answer to this news? So what? The drama has gotten to such a fever pitch that there is actually a petition to sign to have Mr. Affleck removed from the film. Really?? Is this so important that it warrants this type of dramatic reaction? Everyone really needs to calm down, seriously……

With all of the negative publicity that the news has received, InvestComics has taken the “Team Ben” approach. We love the underdog! So with that comes a fun Facebook page that is called Affleck as Batman I’m with Team Ben. If you are tired of the naysayers and you support the underdog (Ben Affleck) be sure to JOIN the Facebook page that InvestComics created. Everyone can post various meme’s, articles, or just comment about their feelings about the Warner Brothers hire. Good or bad. Join by clicking right HERE. Remember, have fun! Why so serious?

On the heels of this news came the announcement of Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Many of the aforementioned fans weighed in with this news as well, this time with more of a positive outlook. Bryan is said from multiple reports to have signed a 6 to 10 film deal. That’s a whole lotta Lex!

The winner of the signed Jimmy Palimiotti Fury #1 was Mike Villegas. Congratulations Mike! Be sure to sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out the next contest. This one is sweet!!

This week Marvel fans are treated to an introduction in Captain America (2012 7th Series) #10. Meet Godzola! Hmm, not that keen on the name, but we shall wait and see. The possible return of Binary happens in Captain Marvel (2012 7th Series) #15. If you feel so inclined to find Binary’s very first appearance, you will find it in Uncanny X-Men #164 (1982). This is the part of the historic Chris Claremont/Dave Cockrum run. Fast forwarding some 7 years later with Chris Claremont still at the helm, Uncanny X-Men #251 (1989) strikes one of the classic X covers to date. Wolverine nailed to the X. How about this week’s Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) #11 striking a resemblance? Marc Silvestri killed it back in 1989 and John Cassaday does a superb job this week.        

Batman Incorporated Special (2013 DC) #1 variant cover by Ethan Van Sciver is sold out. It would be a good idea to try and get your hands on that if possible. Bat-Cow will also make her solo debut here! Bat-Cow’s debut was in Tiny Titans #17 (2009) in case you were wondering.

….And speaking of sold out number one issues, Overtaken (2013 Aspen) #1 is teetering on a second run soon, as is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Hundred Penny Press Edition – Cover A Dan Duncan, Quantum And Woody #1 (3rd Printing – 1st printing recommended on InvestComics Hot Picks), and Arcane Secrets #1 (recommended last week on InvestComics Hot Picks).

That’s it for this week! Be sure to stay close because this week (maybe) the NEW contest will debut. Win a modern number one comic book, Hot series, signed!! Sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to find out first!

See you soon, Invest wisely.

This column is here to help promote brand new comic book series beginning with a #1 issue.

Pictured are this weeks new comic series selling out the fastest !


This weekly article will also take a close look at how popular the titles are and how close they are to selling out at Diamond.

This will give retailers and collectors a heads up with a reminder of books you want to make sure you get immediately!!

Sometimes books don’t sell out immediately so its worth taking a look back at series that came out in the past few months !

Comics can sell out very quickly so some titles on this list will be more valuable instantly the day of release !

Keep in mind that with 1500 comic stores – if even 20% of stores re-ordered just 1 copy each that would be 300 more copies sold !
