DC Comics is at it again. Changing things up and all. Marvel did their bi-yearly cleaning a little bit ago, so now it’s DC’s turn. One thing the big two are not afraid of is change. Superman, to wear red underwear or not to wear red underwear, this is one of the burning questions in all of comic book fandom. The red underwear chronicles, this is the name of an epic event coming up in the new Superman title. Important stuff here! Jim Lee lays the claim down that the red underwear were to always come back after he designed them to not appear on the new costume. Okay Jim. Now the return was met with the answer; “It’s a temporary return”. Everyone does realize we are talking about red underwear, right? Is this topic that important in the grand scheme of things relating to the actual character development here in the future? The answer is quite simple, no. But, this said, there is a reason regular civilian automobiles do not look like mini-tanks or eat up tons of fuel anymore, there is a reason why logo’s for billion dollar corporations change things up, a reason for phones not flipping open anymore. The natural progression of evolution and aesthetic look. It’s ‘normal’ to want to move along and bring things up to date a little bit. Comic fans need to chill a bit when it comes to change. Could you imagine if Superman still actually appeared the way he did in Action Comics #1 today? It wouldn’t sell any copies. Maybe a few, but you understand the meaning here. And so with that long diatribe regarding ‘unimportant’ red underwear, DC Nation #0 is said to have sold (best Dr. Evil impression) one million copies. This according to DC Comics themselves. A million copies. That’s a whole lotta comic books. Granted at a quarter each, local comic shops probably ordered heavy, thus creating that million sales mark. A FREE edition, a 25 cents edition and some variant editions of DC Nation #0 will be available. DC cashing in on that FREE comic thing. Hey, it’s business. DC Nation #0 features all new stories that will CHANGE THE DC UNIVERSE as we know it! Yes, that’s sarcasm, but of course we’ll all check this comic out because we need to. Curiosity/interest will always win out.
Superman will also appear in Action Comics Special #1 this week. No red underwear though. Sorry underwear fans. This comic was originally slated for a 2017 holiday release but is just as jolly now. Dan Jurgens and Will Conrad lead the way.
Original Harley Quinn co-creator, Paul Dini returns to his beloved character for a two-part series; Harley Quinn Loves Joker #1. This mini will wrap up his back-up stories that were appearing in the regular Harley series. Art by Bert Blevins.
The battle of the century (not really, but still bad as*) continues in Deathstroke #31. Deathstroke VS. Batman part two.
Cyborg #22 features the first appearance of Mekkan-X.

A look into the future of Captain America in Captain America #701. The year is 2314. That’s way, way into the future. We’re talking grandson of Steve Rogers, grandson? But 300 years from now? Okay. Anyway, this comic features contributions from various all-star creators with Mark Waid and Leonardo Romero front and center. The Deadpool variant is sold out.
Avengers begins anew again. The seventh time for those keeping score at home. Avengers #1 from writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuiness. ‘Back to basics’ with this Avengers title. As though it seems.
More Wolverine returns stories. This week; Hunt For Wolverine Lost #1. Charles Soule and Matteo Buffagni.
An anti-climatic ending to Brian Michael Bendis’ Spider-Man run. He ends his seven year run with no extra variants and no fanfare. Maybe it’s because he went to the ‘evil empire’. These comic companies are funny aren’t they? Their ‘feelings’ are always the guidance to their not caring about sales or their fans. Hence X-Men, Fantastic Four and other things I cannot think of off the top of my head. So now this ‘quiet’ send off to a seven year writer that created a new Spider-Man (Miles Morales). Oh well. Spider-Man #240 will be Mr. Bendis’ last Spidey issue. Looking forward to what Brian brings to the table at DC. Good luck at the new digs!
Has anyone seen the new Venom trailer? Personally, not a fan of the visual of Venom. Very 90’s. Maybe they’ll clean it up a bit? Just an opinion here. Venom wraps up his series this Wednesday; Venomized #5.
And have you seen the latest Deadpool trailer? Now that looks like a trip and a half. Looking forward to this. Check out You Are Deadpool #1 from writer Al Ewing and artist Salva Espin. Not exactly sure how this comic will work out, but something about ‘fans’ deciding on what happens within the pages of the book. Sounds very Deadpool’ish and we’re in.

Trending Pop Culture 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.
Writer Gail Simone will do her thing; Red Sonja/Tarzan #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) with artist Walter Geovani. Several of the variants are sold out already. Look for this comic to trend and sell out completely.
Due to release last week, Scout Comics gets their soon to be sold out comic Cyber Spectre #1 going. Writer Richard Emms and artist Ale Garza.
Alien Toilet Monsters #1 is finally set for wide release. Creators Carol Zara and Eric Burnett. This comic was/is trending heavy within the social media circuits. Look for the same in wide release.
Writer Rick Remender and artist Bengal bring Death Or Glory #1 to the shelf this week. Super talents will equal a super book.
Coda #1 from Boom Studios delivered by writer Simon Spurrier and artist Matias Bergara. This sci-fi opus is sure to trend once word gets out.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Comic Releases 11/27/13

One standout comic this week could be Nova (2013 5th Series) #10. Last week with the mention of Nova #19 (1978), many fans were very puzzled by this. I received a few messages on the board, Instagram, and personal email saying “Nova? Really?” Yes Nova, really. If you haven’t been paying attention, let me fill you in a bit.

Marvel Studios are about to embark on a whole new universe of pictures and change everything. Yes they are going to change the way movie goers watch “space/cosmic” films with the release of one film; Guardians of the Galaxy. What this particular film will do is open up the flood gates to introduce Marvel in space; their Cosmos if you will. Yes the film will have to fare well in order for the initial steps to be taken, to progress. If all goes well (which it should), Marvel Studios will be on their way to building a cosmic storyline on the big screen as no one has ever done before (besides Star Wars of course, calm down). Now there is one point though, which has been mentioned on InvestComics a few times, what about failure? What happens WHEN, not IF, When a Marvel Studios movie does not meet expectations at the box office? This will in fact happen, it’s inevitable. It will be very interesting to see how Disney reacts to the bad box office draw. One thing is for certain however, the comic book market will be affected to a degree. The prices will drop back into place where they probably should be and level off. The constant influx of various movies and television show announcements are driving prices batty for quite some time now. THIS will be the crash, NOT the variants, 3D covers, etc. The hyperbole will drive pricing back to reality if expectations are not met in the mainstream. Would you pay $10,000 for a Walking Dead CGC 9.9? Yes someone did. THAT is what you call a bad investment. $10,000 on a first appearance 9.9 of Green Goblin, Lois Lane, or even Wolverine makes sense. These characters are household names. Walking Dead is a hot zombie television show right now. It will eventually run its course and no longer be hot anymore. Granted, good story, good show, but its zombies….that’s it. Yes anyone can say “it’s about the character development and how we follow them” but in actuality, no zombies, no show. Not bashing the show, giving a dose of speculation reality here. Spending $10,000 on the number one issue is a bit of an oversight on that buyers part, but maybe, just maybe I’ll be wrong on this.

[scrollGallery id=321]

So back to Nova, as explained Marvel Studios will take the leap into space. It’s a risky one with Guardians because no one really knows of them. Rocket Raccoon will be the star in this one, so it’s best you stock up on him. Anyway, Nova has been mentioned in passing by Marvel and through some rumors. If Marvel is reaching out into the space universe, what’s not to think Nova won’t be a part of that? Same with Warlock, Silver Surfer, Death, and maybe Rom! Remember him? How cool would that be to have a Rom movie? Yes wrestling with that toy company can get dicey, but what Disney wants, Disney gets. What it all boils down to is making sure as a speculator that you have all of your Cosmic ducks in a row. Pick up the rare first appearance, those odd number one issues, the status quo change books, and the rare Thanos variants. It will pay dividends down the line IF the Guardians of the Galaxy movie does well. Nova (2013 5th Series) #10 will play pretend and solict this comic as the 100th issue. Gotta love the restarts, five of them for Nova to be exact here. The comic will come with all sorts of variants. The prize variant will be the JG Jones Incentive. A $60 book that can see some decent gains if handled properly. Nova #10 will star the NEW New Warriors (another potential space team down the road). Check out the first appearance of the New Warriors (“old team”) in Thor #411 (1989). A must own.

We like intros don’t we? Of course we do! Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #20 will introduce a new villain named Whirlwind, so check that out. Kick-Ass 3 (2013 Marvel) #5 will do some introducing themselves with a new villain team. Infinity Hunt (2013) #4 plants the seeds of Marvel’s next major event. Are we tired yet of these major events? And speaking of Infinity, Infinity (2013 Marvel) #6 will conclude with an oversized issue as Thanos fights everyone! And incidentally, Iron Man #55 is Still a must buy. Avengers Assemble (2012) #21 hints at the team Inhumans. The Inhumans are about to have a breakout year next year. Get on top of Fantastic Four #45 (1965) for the first appearance of the Inhumans. Staying on topic with the Avengers, Avengers Arena (2012) #18 will see its final issue this week. With more death and a launching pad for something else. Something major will be happening in All New X-Men (2012) #19 so be sure to glance through that book. Damian Son of Batman (2013) #2 is sold out for the most part on the retail level. The variants are completely sold out. The Andy Kubert black and white variant would be a nice CGC sig series flip book. Forever Evil Argus (2013) #2 will highlight Deathstroke. One of the baddest dudes in the DC Universe. If you’re a regular reader of this column each week, you already know that InvestComics is a huge Deathstroke supporter. I have always felt that the Deathstroke character is on the cusp of some serious play, but DC doesn’t know exactly what to do with him (i.e. Nightwing). Yes they finally put him on television (sparingly), but that’s not enough. Get this guy going already. Bigger role on the show, movie appearances, chop chop DC! A huge recommendation throughout the years on InvestComics has been The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) and it will continue to be in BUY mode with InvestComics. And for those keeping score at home, Forever Evil Argus #2 variant is sold out, which means absolutely nothing on the speculator side of things. Geoff Johns will be hitting all out on Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #25. The conclusion to the “Death of a King” storyline. The new Superior Spider-Man event begins this week; The Darkest Hour in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #22. Venom will have his first run in with Superior Spidey in this issue. This should be very interesting. In the “in case you missed it” department, DC will release Sandman Overture (2013) Special Edition #1. The issue will feature a bunch of useless extras if you’re interested.

IDW will bring back a cult favorite in Sam Keith’s Maxx Maxximized (2013 IDW) #1. A collector can buy the first appearance of Maxx in the overprinted Darker Image #1 (1993).

Black Science (2013 Image) #1 will be THE Image Comic to grab this week. Already sold out at the retail level, but the $10 Midtown Comics variant will be the one to get if this comic makes an impact in the aftermarket. IDW’s Mr Peabody and Sherman (2013 IDW) #1 variant is sold out. Never Ending (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Quest (2013 Zenescope) #1, and Sledgehammer 44 Lightning War (2013) #1 are all on the verge of selling out.

Invest wisely,
