With the influx of female characters making their way into the comic book medium these days, with lots of thanks to Disney (Marvel) making it so that the female character shows more of a “character side” as they have never before, we wanted to make sure to recognize some of the keys players. We completely understand that female characters have been around since the inception of comic books (no need for a history lesson, stop typing that email or Facebook post), but there is a movement happening in the past few years to the likes we have never really seen in case you haven’t realized it. Disney put a female lead in its new Star Wars movie, now the next Star Wars movie (Rouge One) will ALSO be a female lead. They know what they’re doing and their comics are following the same guidelines. So as is everyone else in the comic book industry. Much like what always happens with InvestComics and everyone following us or emulating. We’re flattered though. Like Disney.
Listed below are some new comics, some old comics and characters WE like. This will be the first installment of more Female character checklist to come. Of course we will in FACT not have some of your favorites here, but all in due time. Relax. Just breathe. Deep breaths. No emails, no Facebook post, Tweets, Instagram notes. Breathe……breathe.

IC 100 Club Pick – Bloodshot #6 – First appearance of Ninjak – Click to Buy it Now
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!
This week’s IC 100 Club Pick isBloodshot #6(1993) graded 9.8. This comic is the first appearance of Ninjak. Valiant Entertainment is on the cusp of breaking loose within the film industry. Is it possible we will see Ninjak make an appearance? Maybe. If so, here’s a book to grab for $100 with free shipping.
Creators Brendan Fletcher, Dustin Nguyen and a host of others usher in a new beginning for the Gotham Academy. Check out Gotham Academy #14 as the book starts its “Yearbook” story line.

The crossover with Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seems to have been receptive. Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2 brings together Shredder and the Penguin. As if that wasn’t enough to bring you back, Kevin Eastman does another variant.

Batman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2 – Click to Buy/Bid
Although the Joker’s Daughter has appeared in the previous 2 issues of Red Hood Arsenal, she gets the front cover this week onRed Hood Arsenal #8. It’s been a little while since we’ve seen her grace a cover in an almost solo capacity. With DC using the character a bit more these days, are they gearing up for a mega-push? It’s quite possible. The female hero/villain in comic books is a hot commodity for many comic publishers these days. DC might push for this particular female character to get going. GetCatwoman #23(2013) andCatwoman #24(2013) now before it’s way too too late. That is the cameo and first appearance of Joker’s Daughter. Some low rates for these comics on Ebay right now. Get em!
Wonder Woman fans will have a new series to check out this Wednesday. Legend Of Wonder Woman #1 will be a 9 issue mini-series. DC Comics over the course of the last couple of weeks have been releasing “adult coloring book” variant covers like Starfire #8. Although they do resemble sketch variants, these are ones that DC encourages us “adults” to color on. Why exactly? How many “adults” are really going to do this? Speaking of covers, we’re really digging the Robin War #2 incentive cover by Lee Bermejo.

The Walking Dead #150 – Charlie Adlard cover – Click to Buy/Bid
The Walking Dead #150 – Ryan Ottley cover – Click to Buy/Bid
The Walking Dead #24 – Tony Moore cover – Click to Buy/Bid
The Walking Dead reaches its 150th issue this week. There are so many variants it’s hard to keep up, but there is one we want to talk about. Besides the ultra cool Ryan Ottley variant cover, Tony Moore contributes a variant. Yes THAT Tony Moore. the co-creator of The Walking Dead. The last time Tony penciled a cover for the regular ongoing Walking Dead series was back in 2005; The Walking Dead #24. The Walking Dead #150 will be an obvious huge seller, but the Tony Moore variant is the prize. Did we mention it’s sold out already? Better get yours if you want one. Oh and one more thing, InvestComics may have a HUGE contest in regards to this comic in the works. Stay tuned to our Facebook page AND our Contest section on the site right HERE. It may happen, it may not, but IF it does, Walking Dead fans will love it!
The new Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 comic will be based on the television series. If you’re a fan of the television series, this comic is for you! If not, this comic is NOT for you! Simple enough right? This series has no chance on the longevity scale at all. The television series will not last as long as Bonanza did and the comic series will succumb before that TV series does eventually. We’re not hating on the series, but it will thin out as most of these types of shows do. Let’s face it, they’re not bringing it like the DC television shows are. Flash, Green Arrow, and Gotham. As we pointed out last week with the random Doctor Strange #4 Deadpool variant, must be some stalled sales going on there to throw Deadpool on a variant like that. Well within the plethora of Agents variants, Mark Bagley provides a Deadpool variant. Very random once again. Very unnecessary, but a great cover nonetheless.
Deadpool also appears on a very funny variant cover from Tom Raney. Check out All-New Wolverine #4. The cover is a take on the Batman slapping Robin meme that floats around all of social media.
Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.
Another Deadpool variant; Guardians Of The Galaxy #4 shows Deadpool riding on some sort of Mindcraft thingy. If you don’t know what Mindcraft is, Google it. If Marvel ever decides to take on the license of Mindcraft (maybe it already has it? Who knows?), this comic is the first Mindcraft Marvel. Maybe the first Mindcraft deal in all of comics? Haven’t seen other references, so help us out if you have. **(Update – apparently Deadpool is riding an Internet meme called a nyan cat. Thanks to Barry W for clarifying this).
Silk #3 J Scott Campbell variant cover is sold out.

Secret Wars #9finallyarrives. With it arrives a sentimental cover by Sara Pichelli. Peter giving Miles encouraging words.
If you’re in the market for an all out “magic” comic book, then IDW’s Gutter Magic #1 is for you. Witness an all out magic war set in New York City. Brought to you by writer Rich Douek and artist Brett Barkley. Great storytelling and great art. This will be a hit for IDW Publishing.
An original Kickstarter campaign starter becomes a regular monthly title from Dark Horse Comics. Leaving Megalopolis Surviving Megalopolis #1 is written by Gail Simone with pencils by Jim Calafiore. The original concept of the “heroes” in this book stop being good guys and become very bad. Writer Gail Simone will bring us a great tale because she can flat out write. And veteran artist Jim Calafiore is showcasing some of his best work ever. This looks like a great read, a must get.

It’s been a fantastic start of the week for InvestComics. That’s if Saturday and not Sunday is counted as the first day of the week on your calendar. For me, I’m counting Saturday as the first day because of the great things that happened and are on the horizon!

Saturday InvestComics visited an old friend with a dream and a passion coming to life for him. Martin Pierro of Cosmic Times Publications has done something that has been sorely missed in the West Palm Beach Florida area for quite some time. He started a comic convention appropriately named ‘Palm Con’ 3 years ago. The first 2 years were held in the American Polish Club in Lake Worth Florida. The show quickly outgrew the space needed in the first year, forcing to rent more space the second year, and now this year the show resided in the West Palm Beach Convention Center! Yes Martin is on to something here. In speaking with Martin for the brief few minutes we had at the show (he was a runnin’), you can see and feel the tenseness of the hard work he put into this show. He’s worked hard for this and it shows. In speaking with Andra Walt (mama), one can hear the proudness ooze off of every word, and justly so. Martin Pierro’s Palm Con has arrived.
InvestComics was invited to the event and came out with a few pictures and some video. Those will come out in the days to come. Overall the show had a nice crowd and people were really enjoying themselves. The guest list included Ethan Van Sciver, Deep Roy, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, Allen Bellman, Jose Delbo, Carlos Castellanos, Jeff Dekal, Jessis Melero, Vinnie Tartamella, Creature Entertainment, and a host of others.
As already said, Martin Pierro is obviously on to something here. The West Palm Beach area was in dire need of some sort of comic book entertainment forum and Martin will provide this to the genre for years to come. I personally am very proud of him and look forward to the years ahead. Thanks for the invite Palm Con, I had a blast!
There will be some more news on the horizon from InvestComics, so sit tight. It’s very exciting, but cannot speak about anything until confirmation comes in. Such a tease right?
Let’s head into the DC 3D books for this week. Seems like forever now with these books no? How’s that saying go? Too much of a good thing is bad for you? Well what seemed to be a fun idea is starting to run its course. The 3D covers are nice and all, but the 90’s are calling and they want real comic book covers back.
As InvestComics has done for the collectors each week regarding the 3D covers, we will present the comic and the first appearance of the villain takeover of that particular book. As the weeks pass, it looks as though the field is getting very thinned out. But this shouldn’t deter the collector, it only takes that ONE book to hit and you have chaos within the aftermarket. Be smart about which books to pick up as far as the speculation market goes, the story and the actual character (and print run sometimes) is what causes “that” particular comic to uptick. Not because of a pretty cover.
InvestComics – DC 3D Hot Pick Covers 9-25-13
Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #23.2 – Wonder Woman never really had the rouge gallery that stood out from most, and this week it’s a case in point with ‘First Born’ taking over the WW book. First Born debuted in Wonder Woman #12 (New 52).
Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – Metallo, another forgettable character takes on Superman in this takeover. Metallo makes his first appearance in Action Comics #252 (1959). Cover by Curt Swan.
Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.4 – Staying with the Superman talk we have another one of those huh? Characters. The much bigger purple blob thing names ‘Parasite’ visits Supes. Back in 1966’s Action Comics #340, Parasite wasn’t on the roids yet and wore green shorts. The big question is will Parasite wear his green shorts in the new Superman Parasite book?? The tension mounts!
Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #23.2 – Moving right along here, Ocean Master, yes Ocean Master will give Aquaman his problems in his own book this week. Ocean Master. Okay, just like saying that for some reason. OM first appeared in Aquaman #29 (1966). All joking aside, maybe OM will be Aquaman’s nemesis in a film or television show one day. Image that…?
Justice League (2011) #23.4 – The ultra-cool Secret-Society will have the rights to the new JL book this week. Look for Secret Society of Super-Villains #1 from 1976 for their first appearance.
Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – One of four Batman titles coming out this week. Overkill? Anyway, one of Batman’s biggest adversaries to ever come along after Bats was introduced all of those many moons ago was Bane. Just like Spidey had Venom, Bats has Bane. Not saying that the rest of their rouge galleries are a weak one, but to have a villain come out of the modern era and make such an impact like they have is a big deal. Bane has already been covered in two Batman films. Now granted the first one doesn’t really count, but it did happen and that accounts for something. It wasn’t until the second go around that Bane became the total bad as* that the character should have portrayed. The villain was spot on in The Dark Knight Rises, a fantastic film and a fantastic villain. Do yourself a favor, if you do not already own the first appearance of Bane in Bane: Vengeance of Bane Special #1 (1993), you need to. Although a big print run keeps the cost down a bit, it’s still a wonderful book to have.
Justice League Of America Vol 3 #7.4 – Just like the aforementioned, Black Adam is a total bad as*. This dude needs to appear in a film, stat! Check out Adam’s debut in Marvel’s Family #1 from 1945 (Fawcett Comics).
Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.4 – Too bad the Green Lantern didn’t get as much love as it did. Fans were not at all pleased with the film as box office numbers would show. Sinestro however will remain a main staple in the GL gallery. Look carefully through Green Lantern #7 (1961) and there you will see Sinestro’s first appearance.
Batman Superman (2013 DC)#3.1 – Speaking of movies fans are not receptive to, the new Superman/Batman movie seems to be getting dumped on because of the actor choice Ben Affleck playing Batman. Don’t forget that InvestComics supports Ben as Batman on the Facebook page: ‘Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben’. Click HERE to join the crusade against the naysayers! Any who, within this takeover issue we have the only “thing” to ever “unofficially” kill Superman. Doomsday first appeared in Superman: Man of Steel #17 (1992). Just like Bane and Venom for their respective rouge galleries, Doomsday has become “that villain” within the Superman gallery. A late, modern introduction that has caught on and never let go. Doomsday in the Superman/Batman movie? Hey you never know!
Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – One of the hottest “surprise” issues to come out recently is the Catwoman #23 (New 52) book. The aftermarket went bonkers when word got out that this comic contained the first appearance of the Joker’s daughter. This week the Joker’s daughter will make here “second appearance”. Don’t miss this comic, it’s definitely a sellout book.
Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.4 – The last of the Bat books has Man-Bat gracing the 3D cover. Sometimes a simple switching of a word can create a new character! Although not a recognizable, oh my God I need to buy the issue with Man-Bat in it, it’s the first appearance that’s more appealing than anything. Check out the debut of Man-Bat in Detective Comics #400 (1970). A story drawn by legend Neal Adams and a classic cover by Neal to boot! Good stuff here.
InvestComics Hot Picks 9-25-13
Marvel Comics debuts the new Sun-Girl in Superior Spider-Man Team Up (2013) #3. Sun-Girl is a great looking 70 year old character. Check out the first appearance from back in 1948’s Sun-Girl #1 from Timely Publications! That’s pre-Marvel folks.
Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles and recent Back Issues during LATE AUGUST 2013
Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – firstname.lastname@example.org
This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot titles/issues of the last 5 years please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold releases of the last few years online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.
Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!
This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.
#1 OUTLIERS #1 (2013) Indie comic self published with financing. Highest ratings online for story and art. Super small print run. More and more hype every week and a print run of less than 1800 copies kept prices continually rising up and currently at $50.00. We hyped this book first and helped bring the book mainstream attention for this amazing book.
#2 DAY MEN #1 (BOOM 2013) New ongoing series – #1 sold out instantly – kept rising during early August and then new movie news and the world went nuts for this book. I received long distance calls for this book and so did other local comic shops as people wanted to buy this book in major multiples. Hit a high of $20.00 and then online got flooded with too many copies and prices settled at $10.00.
#3 CATWOMAN #23 (DC 2013) 1st appearance of Joker’s Daughter appears in the last page and is a prelude to her big appearance coming up soon in the 3D DC Villain take over month. Prices hit $13.00 the day of release.
#4 CLONE (IMAGE 2012) On July 15th 2013 it was announced that the new TV series was official and that drove up prices on #1 even though it has a larger print run over 23,000. Diamond still had copies in warehouse up to this news announcement and then sold its last 1,000 copies within days. #1 currently at $10.00 – all issues selling better now and sold out at Diamond. Note how the print run has dropped drastically. Issue #1 has almost 500% the print run of #9.
#5 TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #1 (DC 2013) New mini-series inspiring the Trinity DC crossover storyline for summer 2013 sold out and quickly went to 2nd printing and copies selling as high as $11.00 for regular edition.
#6 WILD BLUE YONDER (IDW) #1 and #2 both sold out instantly 2013 – brand new release sold out instantly and regular cover bringing above cover quickly.
184, Wild Blue Yonder, 1, $3.99, IDW, 10,840
#7 THE LAST OF US (DARK HORSE) – 4 issue mini-series all issues instant sellouts and tie-in to video game. All issues are sold out and Diamond has sold out of #4 a month before its release. Currently all 3 1st print issues are selling for on average $23.00 EACH ! #3 hit a high of $41.00 the week of release. Print runs of issues #1-3 are very low. Print run of #4 jumped way up and is a common book. Complete set of 4 issues hit high of $160.00 in early July. I sold a few sets at $100.00. Only #1 has had a reprint so far and that 2nd printing might be so rare that it did not chart which means likely a print run of less than 3,000 copies. Reprints were scheduled by Dark Horse for #1-3 and then cancelled but now just came out.
Last of Us American Dreams, 1, $3.99, Dark Horse, 6,012
Last of Us American Dreams, 2, $3.99, Dark Horse, 4,991
Last of Us American Dreams, 3, $3.99, Dark Horse, 5,014
Last of Us American Dreams, 4, $3.99, Dark Horse, 7,138
#8 SKYWARD #1 (ACTION LAB ENTERTAINMENT 2013) Originally a one-shot in 2010. Summer 2013 a new ongoing series and all ages friendly from small publisher sold out instantly. Many copies sold between $20 and $25 online. I helped publicize this book online myself helping it achieve higher prices.
#9 WATSON AND HOLMES (NEW PARADIGM 2013) Small print run of 3,800 copies between 2 regular covers sold out instantly and brought sales of up to $50.00 each in first week and then cooled off. Print run was so small that it did not even rank in the Top 300 of the month. Currently #1 sells at above $10 and #2 sells at $7.00
#10 X-FILES SEASON 10 #1 and #2 both sold out instantly (IDW) #1 2013 – brand new release sold out instantly and regular cover bringing a bit above cover constantly.
94, X–Files Season 10, 1, $3.99, IDW, 24,270
#11 INJUSTICE GODS AMONG US (DC) – the hottest DC title of 2013 with small print runs and 3rd prints selling out. Peaked in May at $85.00 for set of #1-4 Many sellers with reprint sets that also sell well. #1 2nd printing hit $12.00 #1 $40 #2 $25 #3 $8 #4 $5 #5-6 $4. I predicted this could be a hit when I saw the initial print run numbers so low and yet featuring major characters Batman, Joker, Superman, Wonder Woman etc. Print runs peaked with #6 and are now leveling out.
96, Injustice Gods Among Us, 1, $3.99, DC, 20,733
120, Injustice Gods Among Us, 2, $3.99, DC, 17,068
118, Injustice Gods Among Us, 3, $3.99, DC, 18,068

98, Injustice Gods Among Us, 7, $3.99, DC, 25,731
#12 GRIMM FAIRY TALES: OZ (ZENESCOPE ENTERTAINMENT 2013) #1 has 5 regular covers – most sellers including myself sold these as sets. Selling for cover until it was reported they were sold out and then sets selling for double cover as of Aug 15th.
#13 STEAM WARS (ANTARCTIC PRESS 2013) Unique new series done in steampunk style but tells a new variation of the George Lucas Star Wars movie storyline featuring characters and storyline and artwork that is definitely borrowed and parodies from the original sci-fi movie. Small print and demand growing for #1 and #2. #1 did not even make Top 300 chart with sales less than 2400.
362, Steam Wars, 1, $3.99, Antarctic, 2,399
#14 IT CAME #1 (2013) Small print mini series issue – sci-fi oriented – Very few retailers ordered it – hit $12.00.
#15 DEXTER (MARVEL 2013) #1 and #2 sold out with small print run based on the violent TV show. Immediate increases on #1.
#16 TODD THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH (Image) #1 hit high of $20 immediately in January week of release and then settled down. Smaller print run. Mini-series #1-4 is sold out and will become ongoing soon from Image with #5 coming out in a month. News of a new tv/movie reported on July 13th made the #1 a super hot comic instantly with sales as high as $60 in July but then cooled down again. #1 and #2 have a 2nd print which are both rarer typically in print run than the originals.
197, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, 1, $2.99, Image, 7,879

34, Lazarus, 1, $2.99, Image, 48,030
#18 EAST OF WEST (Image) #1 Hot as a pre-seller and now sells up to $12.00. 4th printing already and sets of #1-4 sell really well. This is a rare modern example of a comic with a huge print run that still sells out due to popularity and goes to reprints on every issue. It’s the “2013″ version of Saga in terms of popularity. All 5 issues have gone to 2nd prints.

#33 UBER #0-1-2-3 Sold out printings instantly. Originaly I felt this title was being speculated on too heavily but many sales above cover have proven the demand for this series. I personally believe this is the single best looking comic of 2013 with glossy paper and amazing colors and artwork. Some amazing variant covers make it a big job to collect every cover version of each issue. The first issue was #0 and not #1. #0 is the rare ones to find. #0 has a 2nd printing called “enhanced edition”. Print runs on each individual cover are very low. There are 4 regular covers of each issue so when you take the worldwide print runs you have to divide it by 4 to get the real print run of each cover. This makes it more obvious how rare each individual cover is. In fact there are only about 2,700 copies of each cover of the first issue #0. Diamond monthly rankings for each issue and the combined print run of all the covers
#34 THE SIXTH GUN (Oni) – All 31 issues sold out – many not even on ebay and low print runs. Sold a #1 for $250 in Mid April. #1 now at $90.00. Prices have dropped by about 70% since their peak from April 2013 when the news of the potential TV show was at its highest hype. Still some of the rarest comics to collect will keep prices and sales up on this title. The image speculating boom peaked by April 2013 and orders were raised drastically on issues #30-32 which were the highest since issue #2 three years earlier.
#35 SIX GUN GORILLA (BOOM) New on the list. New #1 issue of mini-series based on golden age character quickly sold out and selling at $10.00 within a week of release.
