It’s no secret Venom has dominated much of the Marvel universe within the last year or so. We’re not going to recommend to anyone to buy Amazing Spider-Man #300 (first full Venom) because not only is that an obvious book to try and have in your collection, it’s idiotic to recommend it. That said, Venomverse #1 will release this week and next week and maybe the week after with all of its reprints. Yes, it will sell out and no it won’t be worth jack in the aftermarket. Well, not really, lets explain. The regular Venomverse #1 cover will be the least of anyone’s interest. It’s the Todd McFarlane variant that will peak the interest, as it has in the past already when Marvel pulled off the McFarlane variant. It’s also the dozen or so ‘rare/ratio’ covers that will also peak the interest. Venom is hot right now obviously and if you didn’t know or see this coming, well you’re on the wrong side of the speculation business. You’re not a speculation guru if you were telling everyone to buy the first appearance of Venom……you should always buy the first appearance of Venom. Period.
Venomverse #1 also features the first appearance of ‘Poisons’.

The best part of the Venomverse series (event) is the heads up we have given our readers for months now. One of these Venom mash-ups are bound to break out and when it does, you should be on top of their first appearance. The recommendations from InvestComics for months regarding Edge of Venomverse may finally pay dividends down the line somewhere. Even the past Venom mash-ups must be on your radar, which we covered too.
Also from Marvel this week will be Venomverse: War Stories #1. This comic and series will be exactly what we just spoke about in the last paragraph, but better. Better because Marvel knows where to cash in and they’re taking full advantage of it. They know fans love Venom and they love mash-ups, so why not cook up some short stories on possible characters that have not been mashed with Venom yet? Marvel Venomize’s Rocket Raccoon in this issue. Has he been Venomized yet? We don’t recall, please let us know without being a fanboy about it. If not, this is a first right out of the gate.
…..And ONE more Venomized first; Venomized Omega Red on the cover of X-Men Gold #11.

Marvel will fill in a little time gap between Star Wars The Force Awakens and Star Wars The Last Jedi with the release of Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi – Captain Phasma #1. This will be the hottest Star Wars book since we first met Doctor Aphra in Darth Vader’s book. Captain Phasma’s first solo series will not be the last we see of the character, this will be only the beginning. Think modern day Boba Fett and you get the idea of the possible magnitude this character may have. So with that said, one may wonder where Phasma first appeared. That would be in Poe Dameron #2. This comic is cover price in the aftermarket and sitting in some dollar bins right now. Not for long……
The new Daredevil #26 comic may have a first appearance in it. Keep an eye out on this one. It will be hard to miss this issues Tom Lyle Typhoid Mary Venomized (first Typhoid Mary Venom?) variant though, so it won’t be that hard to ‘miss’ anything. The cover alone will have eyeballs on it. Typhoid Mary first appeared in Daredevil #254 (1988).

Ironheart meets with Iron Man in Generations: Iron Man & Ironheart #1. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Marco Rudy.
We don’t usually discuss any comic book covers in our Hot Picks (except for Daredevil #26 earlier), we save that for our ‘Best Comic Covers’ (eye candy) article, but once in a while we have to point out something cool. Ed McGuinness gives the fan a quick Wolverine history lesson on the Astonishing X-Men #3 cover. Ed’s cover sees a a young Wolverine, Weapon X, X-Men Wolverine, Old Man Logan and then his remains. Very neat and creative. Thank you Mr. McGuinness.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
There will be no doubt, the hottest indie on new comic book Wednesday will be The Walking Dead #171. The introduction/first appearance of ‘Princess’. This is called putting juice back into a book that needs it. Not saying Walking Dead is a dead (no pun intended) book, but it’s about that time this series need a jolt again. What’s been hot the last few years? The female leads, insert a NEW female character into a hot series and BAM, you have a hot book everyone is talking about.

Marvel Comics has brought the Star Wars comic lure to a new creative level ever since getting the rights back to publish. They have done such a great job bringing in new fans and satisfying old fans. However, this week IDW Publishing prints a new all ages Star Wars comic; Star Wars Adventures #1. Now if this was a new Marvel release, collectors would be all over it. Since this is an IDW print, we will see if the bar has been set too high and if IDW can/will reach it. We say give it a shot, it’s Star Wars, nuff said. Writer Cavan Scott and artist Derek Charm.

One certainty within the indie comics market is this; a debut comic from Black Mask, After Shock Comics and Oni Comics usually have a habit of selling out. This week Made Men #1 from Oni Press will do just that….sell out. Writer Paul Tobin with artist Arjuna Susini.
One of the hottest downloaded mobile games in history gets its own comic book. Fruit Ninja #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Will this equate to comic sales? Maybe. Will it equate to a sell out? Maybe. Will it equate to an aftermarket bump? Maybe. What we’re saying is that history has shown us that because a video game or mobile game sells billions, it does not mean the comic book will. 9.9 out of 10 times, it won’t. But it is Fruit Ninja and it does look bad as*. Written by Nathan Cosby and art by Ruairi Coleman.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 11-11-09






Mark Waid and Warren Ellis each have a number One issue coming this week. 2 Doctors also have number one issues. More inside…..

strangetales110_1963_1500.gifstrange1.gifIt’s sort of funny how Marvel basically said to Stephen Strange, ‘forget you you’re lame, we want a new Sorcerer Supreme.’ Then they say, ‘we’re sorry here is your own ongoing series for your troubles, no hard feelings.’ If I were Stephen, I would put some dark magic on someone’s as* at Marvel for making Doctor Voodoo the new Supreme, but that’s just me. Strange will be alright in the very capable hands of Veteran writer Mark Waid and newcomer artist Emma Rios. Strange #1 will be a quick sellout, so if you miss it don’t fret, a second print to follow soon. If you have some extra cash for a silver age comic this week, look for Strange Tales #110 from 1963. This comic will be cost around the $1500 mark, a comic that might be undervalued with such attention given to this character these days. Look for a VF copy or better and hold on to this comic. The upside is better than you might think with this one. With Marvel tapping into the movie entertainment side of their library so much these days, it’s just a matter of time before the name Dr. Strange comes up and it will.

vengeanceofthemoonknight3.gifmoonknight1_1980_9.gifwerewolf32_1stmoonknight.gifVengeance of the Moon Knight #3 guest stars an original cast member from his first series from 1980. Raoul Bushman first appeared in Moon Knight #1, which was the first solo series for Marvel’s white knight. It’s a real bargain at only $9. With Moon Knight doing so well these days with the ‘Vengeance’ series that 1980 comic is looking nicer at the $9 price tag. Writer Gregg Hurwitz is taking Moon Knight to another level (as mentioned in previous Hot Picks) and should be hovering on your radar screen. The same applies here that applied to Dr. Strange regarding the movie reference. The White Knight though has even more upside than Strange when it comes to value. Werewolf by Night #32 would cost you around $100. This is a tremendous buying opportunity if you can find yourself a nice copy. A purchase here should result in a hold position for quite some time with some great upside here fans.
batman693.gifbatmandocsavagespecial1.gifshadowcomics_1940_9000_1stdocsav.gifBatman #693 debuts a new Arkham Asylum as well as the debut of the Gotham Shield Committee and Black Mask’s Ministry of Death. The latter sounds like trouble don’t it? By the way if you have some cash left over after buying the first appearance of Strange and Moon Knight, take a look-see at the 1940 Shadow Comics #1. This is the first appearance of Doc Savage, which teams up with Batman in Batman/Doc Savage Special #1 this week. It comes in at a heavy $9000. 
punishermax1.gifsword1.gifastonishingxmen3.gifA few number one issues hit the Hot Picks this week
with 2 sleepers and 2 non sleepers. One of the non sleepers will keep you up because all of the heavy artillery he walks around with. The Punishermax #1
series promises to introduce a villain into Frank’s life that will cause more problems to his psyche than ever before. From the looks of it, the cover screams Kingpin and yes he really could be a pain in the as*. Another non sleeper this week will sell out quicker than these dots I have to put between these letters, S.W.O.R.D. #1. This team is a relatively new one, first appearing in Astonishing X-Men #3 a few years ago. So if you like this team and think they have potential, this is the comic to get. If not, well then this is not the comic to get. Your call here! Sleeper one has to go to Ghoul #1. Written by Steve Niles (30 days of Night) and drawn by the LEGEND himself Berni Wrightson. This is a team made in heaven, well in this case made in hell, but you get the idea. Avatar Press will be releasing SuperGod #1. Superheroes worshipped by humans as Gods…..okay Mr. Warren Ellis, you have my attention. This comic is going to sell out quickly so do not miss it.








Don’t forget the Blackest Night crossover’s this week. R.E.B.E.L.S. #10 and Booster Gold #26.
