Sideways #7

The Fantastic Four will enter its sixth volume this Wednesday; Fantastic Four #1 Vol 6. That’s a whole lotta restarts (…at last count, thirty variant covers to choose from). Now though, it appears we could begin the longest run in quite some time. Not since John Byrne has there been such anticipation to grab a Fantastic Four book. Writer Dan Slott just finished off a ten-year Spider-Man run. Filled with happiness, sadness, changes and controversy. Either driving fans with glee or driving them insane, but at least he evoked an emotion. Fantastic Four needs just this, a swift kick in the as*. With writer Dan Slott and artist Sara Pichelli, it’s more than likely a kickstart to the heart will indeed happen here. The Four took a long hiatus to no fault of their own. Now they are back in a big way. Expect this new series to trend to a fever pitch.
Has anyone noticed lately, Mike Deodato Jr. has been putting on a clinic with his gorgeous covers. Absurdly beautiful. This week, yet another cover pops and turns those heads. Check out the homage cover; Old Man Logan #45. Back in 1982 (Daredevil #181), it was Bullseye stabbing Elektra in the pages of Frank Miller’s Daredevil run, now Bullseye is stabbing Old Man Logan. Mike Deodato Jr. nails it here. His sequential art or his cover art, he’s an amazing talent.
A new chapter begins in Miles Morales’ life. Witness the beginning in Spider-Man Annual #1. Writer Bryan Edward Hill and artists Nelson Blake II and Mark Bagley.
The Fortress Vader story begins in Darth Vader #19. Writer Charles Soule, artist Giuseppe Camuncoli.

In the ‘in case you’re missing it’ department, writer Dan Didio has been putting together quite the story in DC’s Sideways comic. Pick up the first six issues and then Sideways #7 this Wednesday. You’ll dig it.
Comic fans are always up for a good fight. It’s Batman vs. Red Hood in Red Hood And The Outlaws #25.
Suicide Squad #45 begins the Sink Atlantis story. It will continue within the pages of the Aquaman comic. Rob Williams and Dan Abnett write.
Fans of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman will be extremely gleeful this Wednesday as Sandman Universe #1 is released. Although it doesn’t really list Neil as a writer, DC (Vertigo) says ‘from the mind of’ Neil Gaiman. So, we’re going to assume he has some input here. Writer Si Spurrier is listed as the writer. Art by Bilquis Evely. Sandman Universe #1 will lead right into 4 new series from the DC/Vertigo imprint.

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.
The timing is impeccable….The InvestComics LLC website switches gears in March of this year (click here) after thirteen years due to SOME of the reasons related to Howard Chaykin’s new comic Hey Kids! Comics #1 from Image Comics. The cover alone is classic ridiculous fandom. Loving this comic already and we haven’t even opened it up yet. Artist Don Cameron at the helm here as well.
Erik Larsen continues his mind-numbing torrid pace on his Savage Dragon title. Every month, Mr. Larsen brings it. Paying homage to the classic Calvin and Hobbes comic strip in the last month’s issue, this week ‘Beware’ the villain Scourge in Savage Dragon #237. Seriously though, Erik Larsen is a master of his craft and any creator looking for a 101, inspiration, innovation, look no further, Savage Dragon is it. Also, you’d need to follow Erik on his Facebook page. There, you’d get some education about ins and outs of this genre. Fantastic insight that would lend to anyone’s craft either breaking into the business or anyone within the business already.

Learn more about the new villain (group); Power Elite in Captain America’s ninth restart. Volume 9; Captain America #1. The new series arrives with at least 20 variants, if not more. So, plenty of covers to choose from. And plenty of beautiful covers that will make their way around the social media circuit.
The Cosmic Ghost Rider character is a hit. Trending at an absurd pace right now. You sitting down? Okay, you sure? Well, recently a first appearance of the Cosmic one in a variant cover Thanos #13, graded CGC 9.8 sold for……..$771+. That’s correct, this is not a misprint. Almost $800 for a comic that is not even a year old yet. Six months old to be exact. Six months old…..let that sink in. Another reason why InvestComics had to move on. This is absurdity. Anyway, the first solo comic will hit with a fervor. Look for a tremendous interest in the variant covers as this comic sells out quickly. The trend will hit hard as fans show off their booty all over Instagram and Facebook. Writer Donny Cates and artist Dylan Burnett bring the new age Ghost Rider to comic shops this Wednesday; Cosmic Ghost Rider #1.
The question Marvel ponders, ‘What to do with the Inhumans television disaster?’ Simple, you kill them off in a comic book series. Well, they say they will and as the title states; Death Of The Inhumans #1, but we all know it will not really happen. But that said, with the likes of one of the hottest comic writers on the planet right now Donny Cates and renowned artist Ariel Olivetti, this comic will kick some major as*. And what’s with the variant cover with ‘VOX’? Is that a revamp Vox character from Avengers The Initiative #7 (first appearance- 2008) or a new VOX altogether? Either way, very appealing.

Learn some secrets regarding Peter Parker’s parents in Spider-Man/Deadpool #35.
Marvel’s revered Star Wars series hits a milestone this Wednesday; Star Wars #50. What surprises are in store here? A must get for Star Wars fans and collectors alike.
From our calculations, The Russian Winter Guard team was last seen in Monsters Unleashed #2 very recently. The time before this was in 2015, when Marvel was still in a bitter stalemate with Fox Studios over the Fantastic Four, X-Men, etc. Fantastic Four #643 in 2015 was the last scene appearance before their recent stint. The Winter Guard first appeared in Iron Man (Vol.3) #9 in 1998. Okay, now that’s out of the way, The Winter Guard make an appearance this week in Weapon X #20.
Marvel Rising Squirrel Girl And Ms. Marvel #1; Writers Ryan North, G.Willow Wilson and Devin Grayson. Artists Ramon Bachs and Irene Strychalski.

Batman #50 Cake Variant

The wedding of the century has arrived. Batman #50 brings fans, media and social media to a frenzy as Batman weds Catwoman. Will this marriage stand the test of time? We’ll have to wait and see, but for now we’re all invited to a wedding, so let’s all wish the couple a prosperous life together. As expected, lots and lots of variants accompany the release.
With the wedding comes something new correct? How about Catwoman #1 from writer/artist Joelle Jones. Yes, this is a great wedding gift for comic fans, thank you Joelle….and DC. We appreciate it.
Is Damian Wayne really Slade Wilson’s son? Or is he really Batman’s son? Find out what and who and possibly why in Deathstroke #33.

Marvel Comics still refuses to put the Fantastic Four back together in a comic book due to their little beef with Fox, but with the recent “almost acquisition” of Disney taking over the Fox Studios (characters), things will and could change rather quick. With that, in perfect synchronicity, Marvel joins TWO of the FOUR in Marvel Two-In-One #1 this Wednesday. Torch and Thing star. Writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Jim Cheung. The original 4 getting together again is not that far behind, especially with the new deal so close. As for the Marvel-Two-In-One series. The original series debuted back 1974 starring the Thing in every issue. Much like the Fantastic Four series, the series waned on (early issues) without much fanfare (except the Byrne run). The highlight of the 1974 Marvel-Two-In-One series came in Marvel-Two-In-One Annual #2 (1977). Thanos’ death, Avengers appearance, Spider-Man appearance, Infinity Stone and a Jim Starlin cover.
Loki is still Sorcerer Supreme and Doctor Strange is having all kinds of problems trying to contain him. In Doctor Strange #383, Strange summons for help when he goes to Asgard. Marvel wants to surprise us with the guest star; Loki: Sorcerer Supreme part 3.

A new X-Men series; X-Men: Grand Design #1 from creator Ed Piskor.

The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.

Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.

Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.

The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.

Fantastic Four #293 (1986) – Jerry Ordway provides this great cover of the She-Hulk.

Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.

Marvel Comics Presents #18 (1989) – She-Hulk story written and drawn by John Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely! 

Sensational She-Hulk #2 (1989) – First appearance of Weezi Mason.

Marvel Age #76 (1989) – As a growing trend for quite a while, Marvel or John Byrne loved putting Jennifer in a bathing suit on his covers.

Sensational She-Hulk #39 (1992) – And another awesome cover from Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back.  A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.  

Sensational She-Hulk #41 (1992) – The first time creator John Byrne appears (as himself) in the She-Hulk series.

Marc Spector: Moon Knight #41 (1992) – The first time Jennifer appears in a Moon Knight comic.

This issue would be the last Byrne issue as Jennifer looks for a new creative team to take over her comic series. John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.

Sensational She-Hulk #52 (1993) – This issue features an Adam Hughes cover!

Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.

Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

And besides, look at the creator names on this book anyway, Mantlo. Guice, Austin, Mazzucchelli, and Ditko. Not just any book to get graded.
Rom #62 (1985) – Steve Ditko art. Michael Zeck cover.
Rom #65 (1985) – Steve Ditko pencils ALL of these characters; Avengers, X-Men, West Coast Avengers, Soviet Super Soldiers, Dynamic Defenders (which includes Valkyrie, Beast, Iceman, Gargoyle, Angel, and Moondragon), Captain Britain, and many more. This issue is a must have in your Steve Ditko collection.

InvestComics Hot Picks – Top 5 New Comic Picks #8

Every Tuesday/Wednesday! Here are the Top 5 NEW comics to speculate/read from this Wednesday’s new comic book day.

From this past Sunday’s InvestComics Hot Picks #369

.

Batman #40 – The Endgame story line comes to a climatic conclusion. The last issue of this run is completely sold out. The regular cover and variants are no longer available at Diamond. The two variants are fantastic; the Andy Kubert and the Mask movie variant.Silk_3_InvestComics

Silk #3 – The Black Cat vs. Silk! The variant is sold out. Watch for books like this one to command some extra units once the Silk character hits it bigger. The Black Cat is already slated to appear in a Spidey movie eventually, maybe Silk too? Never know….

Princess Leia #3 – As explained on InvestComics quite often these past few months. Any new Star Wars comic holds the potential of explosion or possible long term investment. A first appearance may happen at any time and the speculation fever will hit. Maybe that first appearance will come to fruition. Maybe that first appearance will become a bigger story within the Marvel Universe. Maybe a cartoon appearance? Maybe none of this. Either way, you’re getting some good Star Wars stories to read!

Fantastic Four #645 – The last issue of Fantastic Four ever. That’s until the Mouse is not any anymore.

Mayday #1 – An odd offering from Black Mask Comics. A daring story line about Hollywood may have this comic fly under the radar.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 3/11/15

Howard_the_Duck_1_InvestComicsSo what makes Detective Comics Endgame #1 more of a standout than Howard the Duck #1 this week? Why even compare them really? No reason, just because. Well maybe because Marvel is pushing this C list character down our throats with ten variants at last count? And the Detective book has one awesome regular cover. Of course the comic book collecting life isn’t all about cover though, right? It is in fact though the first appealing thing one sees, so the marketing must captivate the eye and sell it first. Make that person WANT to pick up that comic. So I ask the question, one sees all bazillion of the Howard the Duck #1 variants and then one sees the Detective Comics Endgame #1 sitting on the shelf. Besides your shop having your books displayed in alphabetical order, in which the first book you probably will see is the Batman book, which would you be so inclined to pick up and thumb through first? Maybe some do pick up the Howard book first, but the majority will probably gravitate towards that awesome Rafael Albuquerque cover for Detective Comics Endgame #1. Well that’s all about the outside, what about the inside? One book is about a Private Investigator that is a umm….a duck and the other is about a new group of teenagers kicking some as* in Gotham to save it from being overrun by Jokerized victims. Maybe you still like the Howard book. The Howard book will be a fun read though, so get it for at least that reason! Both are cool. So don’t get all hurt that I’m not that high on the Howard book. Speculation = opinion.

Detective_Comics_Endgame_1_InvestComics Avengers_195_InvestComics

Not that owning the Fear #19 (1976) book (first appearance of Howard the Duck) is a bad thing, but if you’re in the market to buy a good first appearance for $250 or $500 dollars, there are other books to seriously consider. Ask yourself this. Would Disney really want to jeopardize/replace the lure of Donald Duck with a wise cracking, cigar smoking duck? I highly doubt they want to throw Howard in our faces as the duck to really remember and constantly have questions from children to adults saying, “Is that Donald Duck?”. Um no. Disney would not want this. Why do you think there is no real talk about a cartoon or a movie pertaining to Howard? For this reason. Too close to Donald. Maybe someday Disney will bite the bullet and release a Howard cartoon or movie, but as for right now it’s not happening. Maybe a Howard the Duck comic book is a feeler to see what sort of attention it gets? Then maybe we’ll get some real news of something? This speculator doesn’t think we’ll see anything for some time. The Donald lure is way more important to Disney right now than destroying the very fabric of Disneyland or anything pertaining to Donald with people constantly mistaking Donald for Howard. By Avengers_196_InvestComicscomparison, will we ever see a nasty mouse character created within the Marvel U that looks very similar to the Big Mouse with an attitude and possible cigar? The short answer is no. Howard will stay where he is right now and Disney is very content with that. Buy Detective Comics Endgame #1, looks like a winner. (Not that many floating on Ebay right now. Click the link and get yours if you want it!). Story sounds good, good creative team, possible intro to a new team and that cover……

Instead of paying so much for a Fear #19 comic, why not check out who Ant-Man is dealing with in Ant-Man #3. Although Taskmaster is not in comparison to Howard as far as notability and pricing as far as first appearances go, his (cameo) in Avengers #195 from 1980 is a nice book. Recommended by InvestComics a few years ago when it was a $7 book, it has since climbed into a decent area and is still very affordable at this point. His first “full appearance” is in Avengers #196. Rumors surround Taskmaster as a possible movie appearance from time to time as does the possible breakout ability he has as well. Nothing of either end really….yet? Either way, InvestComics is still high on this comic after years of recommending it. Be sure to click the RED link to bounce over to Ebay (it’ll open in a new window, leaving your page right here!) to throw a bid down or a buy it now. A George Perez book with upside here. Be forewarned, various grades and pricing on Ebay for Avengers #195 are very sporadic.

Bloodshot_6_InvestComics Ninjak_1_InvestComicsDepending on how long you’ve been a speculator, you will remember the Valiant comics craze. Ask a seasoned veteran about the ridiculous Valiant pricing at one time and listen to how many people lost a tremendous amount of money in these books. Now flash to 2015 and you will see that the speculator just ain’t going for that again! Many new Valiant comics have gotten a new life (relaunched) on the label, but the back issue market for these books from which these characters first appeared have done nil. So with that, Ninjak #1 will reappear in his own title. Ninjak first appeared in Bloodshot #6 back in 1993. If you click the red link here, that Bloodshot #6 (see the red link again!) can be yours, a NM for only $1.79. My my, how times have changed.

As there is most weeks, there is always an Image Comic to keep an eye out on. This week it’s Southern Cross #1. (Only 10 of these now on Ebay with a couple of variants). An interesting story with only one variant cover to show for. The variant is from Tula Lotay. She’s been around a couple of years, but is making her presence known. Watch for this newbie as she comes up the ranks with the Babs Tarr’s, Stacey Lee’s, Fiona Staples‘ of the world. Notice a trend here? Just saying. And very awesome.

Arkham_Knight_1.InvestComicsA video game adaptation comics really surmount to much within the aftermarket, but they are still great nonetheless. Check out the new Batman Arkham Knight #1 as it leads up to the new video game release. The Gary Frank variant is sold out already. It is a beauty too! Get it on Ebay right now if you want! That Red Link! Helping everyone out here!

The Disney spiteful demise of the Fantastic Four comic is almost here. The next to last issue promises lots of cool things. Fantastic Four #644; the end is near.

CLICK the RED Links and go straight to Ebay.Buy or Bid on the comics right now within this article!

Spider-Gwen will continue her “torrid” pace of popularity this week. Will number two sell out too? How long will the madness for Edge of Spider-Verse #2 continue for? (Insert sarcasm here) Only 230 listings at the present moment. Will Spider-Gwen be the next Harley? Will she be the Howard the Duck? Time will tell! And speaking of Spider-Verse, Amazing Spider-Man #16 name drops Spider-Verse within its solicit this week. Anything going to pop up here?Will Marvel ever let Spider-Verse go already? Spidey also has Amazing Spider-Man Special #1 coming out. Cool read here, nice Adam Kubert variant and who knows what can pop up here too?

Check out the pages of Ms. Marvel #13, may have an intro. Cool book anyways.

A few number one issues to definitely check out this week. Surface #1 from Image Comics. Spawn fans rejoice, Spawn Resurrection #1 will not only be a new beginning, but a Todd McFarlane variant will come along for the ride. The wildly successful Sixth Gun will begin anew with Sixth Gun Dust to Dust #1. Creator Cullen Bunn of this series also has another book coming this week; Hellbreak #1. Great stuff here. Bill and Ted’s Most Triumphant Return #1 from Boom Studios is a fun book. Bill and Ted originally made their comic book debut in 1989’s Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure Movie Adaptation #1 from DC Comics.

Postal #2 from Image hits this week with a very cool variant. Postal #1 showed some nice sales. Will the series pick up some more steam?

Comic Broker – January 2015 (part 2)

Star Wars Galaxy Magazine 2 ( Sealed )

There have been some rumblings over at Fox concerning the return of The X-Files starring the original investigating team.  If that happens the original series will start to get hot.  At one time the early issues of the Topps series were quite valuable.  Also I  have mentioned this SW mag  before.  Now is the time to buy cheap!

$_12856565

Notable issues: Hero illustrated 22 ( sealed only ) contains X-Files -1, X-Files Comic Digest December 1995 Photo Variant, X-Files 1,2,40 a & b,41 a & b

Alias 24

The Purple Man will be coming to TV.  His first appearance is in a pretty expensive comic but his first appearance is Alias is quite easy to find and that is probably where he will show up first.

901_20090813122538_large

Daredevil 4 ( First appearance of the Purple Man )

6819_20051104180230_large

The Incredible Hulk 100 ( Second appearance of Amadeus Cho )

Callsheet 66 puts a Doctor Cho in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Is he still the seventh smartest person on Earth?  If so Amazing Fantasy Volume 2 #15 is going to blow up.  The reason I have yet to mention it?  It’s already been hyped for a while and collectors have been holding for some time.  Below is his second appearance and this comic is hard to find because of the popularity of Planet Hulk.

69147_20061102095608_large

Iron Man: I am Iron Man TPB

Back in 2008 Walmart decided to include a special promotional comic in one of its Iron Man DVDs.  That comic just happens to be the first appearance of  Fan Favorite Agent Coulson.  There’s another problem.  It is impossible to locate a copy and the ones I have found are in horrible condition.  If you want to read Security Measures the only place to own it in print is in this forgotten trade.

Eternal Warrior 8

Have you been reading Archer and Armstrong?   Trust me when I say it’s worth a read and so is issue 1 of Ivar the  Timewalker.  This is his first appearance.

33058-4825-36910-1-eternal-warrior

Sleepwalker 8 ( JC Penny Reprint )

I cannot believe the recent hype for Sleepwalker.  He was referenced in BH6 an now he is slated to play an important role in the end of the Ultimate Universe!   But Sleepwalker already appeared in a film!  Issue 8 specifically was mistakenly used in the film True Romance.  This is the JC Penny Reprint and it is rare!

Notable Sleepwalker Comics: Issue 1 ( newsstand, high grade only ), Marvel Age 100, Sleepwalker 31,32,33

Comic Broker Report – November 2014

Here’s a small sampling of the comics I like this month and no I am not spending money on the insane cover price DC is asking for the Harley annual that smells like weed.

The Avengers 170,171

Looking for Ultron keys?  Scoop up these Perez Classics before it’s too late.

ssAvengers_Vol_1_171

Ultron doesn’t appear in the Avengers again until 202.

 

Fantastic Four 53 ( First Ulysses Klaw )

That sure looks like Klaw in the Avengers 2 trailer and he’s not the only reason to hunt down this key Black Panther book ( first Vibranium! )  The market is already wise to this one so prices are going to be high but it is a pretty safe bet.  Ya might be tempted to sell now with Marvel’s big phase 3 news but Black Panther key books are only going to rise in value  due to the broad appeal of this character.

ff 53 first u klaw

 

Fantastic Four 173, 174 ( First Counter-Earth )

Upcoming events from Marvel look to incorporate their own multiverse like story lines.  The High Evolutionary created one of those worlds here.

imagesff 174 first counter-earth

 

SUICIDE SQUAD:

Let’s get a head start on the Suicide Squad film speculation.  Here are the first appearances of some of the more obscure members:

First Multiplex

firestorm 2 first multiplex

 

First Mindboggler

I cannot believe how many Firestorm comics are fast becoming key DC books!

firestorm 29 first mindboggler

 

First Jaculi

First Vixen

God this is an awful cover!

action 521 first vixen

Other Key Suicide Comics:  Vol.1 1,23,49

 

And some other last minute comics…

 

Spider-Man Summer Sampler 2012 ( First Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel )

Are you looking for the spot where Carol Danvers appeared as Captain Marvel for the first time?  She appeared on the cover to this freebee months before Avenging Spider-Man 9 and issue one of the regular series.

567653

Silver Surfer 44 ( First Infinity Gauntlet )

With the announcement of the Infinity War films Marvel has thrown down the gauntlet for speculators!  While others are throwing away money on comics like the Infinity War 1-6 series ( which might just prove to have no connection the films other than the title ) I’m betting on cheap back issues like this.

Promoter of Connecticut ComiConn

InvestComics was granted press access to the Connecticut ComiCONN on August 15th-17th 2014. We are excited to attend this creator/star studded show. We caught up with the promoter Mitchell Hallock. Mitchell gave us a few minutes out of his busy schedule and we appreciate it!

Be sure to check out the Connecticut ComiCONN Facebook page right HERE for the latest additions to this already packed show. And go to the website to purchase tickets right HERE.

Jay Katz: The Connecticut ComiCONN this year looks like a big one. We’ll get into who’s going to be there in a minute, but how did you aspire to promote a comic book show?

ConneticutComiConn (2)Mitchell Hallock: It’s actually quite simple — I have loved comics since my Dad gave me my first Batman book when I was 4, that was 43 years ago! I was in love with them from the start. Gathered up about 25,000 over the years and would seek out any con around, but there was the problem. The last good size con in Connecticut was the early 1980s. So when the thought of doing a new and bigger one came around — it began anew. From 1 day hotel shows in 2010, to our new 3 day arena show this August 15-17 at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT.

(JK): How long has ComiCONN been around?

(MH): May 15, 2010 was the very first show at the North Haven Holiday Inn. So this will be our 5th annual show this year.

(JK): Did you ever dream it would be as large as it is? And what one guest(s) would you love to have at the show that you have yet to land?

(MH): Yes, I actually did see it growing. The proof was during Hurricane Irene in 2011, when more than 1200 fans braved a storm, closed highways, ferry and train and made it to the show. I said imagine if the weather was good….since then it has been and the crowds went from 3,000 to 6,000 for the 1 day event every August at a hotel.
My dream guest would be Harrison Ford – but that would never happen in a million years. The other one closer to reality is Stan Lee… so I better hurry up!

ConneticutComiConn (3)(JK): Speaking of guest! Who are some of your guest of honor?

(MH): This year we have several great guests filling that role – the art legends of George Perez, Neal Adams and a newcomer — David Finch fresh off the DC Comic hit book “Forever Evil”. We will also have greats like Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Klaus Janson, Denny O’Neil, Keith Giffen and others. As we are staying true to the idea of a con about “COMICS”.

(JK): The show is in August, can we expect to see more names added to this list?

(MH): Oh yes, I don’t want to show all my surprises too early. There are more comic greats coming to the show – artists mostly. And I have thrown in a few media guests like the Greatest American Hero, actor, William Katt and from The movies The Crow and Ghostbusters , Ray Park, Nicholas Brendon, SHIELD/HYDRA Agent Jasper Sitwell – or rather the actor who plays him on TV and the marvel movies – Maximiliano Hernandez. As we speak I am talking with a few other big comic actors. So stay tuned.

(JK): Do you encourage cosplayer’s to attend?

ConneticutComiConn (1)(MH): Absolutely! That has always been a HUGE [part of our show – kids and adults love seeing their costumed heroes in the flesh and the cosplayers NEVER disappoint! From 66 Batman to the modern Dark Knight, Poison Ivy to Mr. T, Iron Man to the Fantastic Four I have seen some amazing cosplayers and I cannot wait to see this year’s!

(JK): What is the one takeaway you hope visitors take with them after they leave your show?

(MH): That they had one hell of a great time at a great price — it’s all about value – this is not a “big city” wait in line all day show – or a money grab – it’s about getting together with like-minded friends, creators and fans and all sharing in the love of COMICS! ’nuff said!

Thank you Mitchell. InvestComics will see you there!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 4/16/14

Fifteen number one issues are featured in this week’s article. Some of course with an overload in the variant cover department, but hey no one is forcing anyone to buy them right?

Marvel Comics continues their version of the new 52 with the release of Hulk (2014 2nd Series) #1 and Ultimate Fantastic Four (2014 2nd Series) #1. Not a complete overhaul of their titles, but an abundance of number one issues. Which in reality is completely pointless, but that’s a debate for another time. The new Hulk series will do well, while the new Fantastic Four will border on mediocrity after its first few issues. The Hulk series is accompanied by six variants and FF only has two. See even Marvel knows the deal here. The GET comic in all 8 of these choices is the Mark Bagley Hulk variant. Mark is a stud, Hulk is a stud, CGC is a stud, and a signature from Mark would cap off your $25 variant investment.

Staying on topic with the variants covers, there is a prized variant to try to get your hands on. Superior Spider-Man (2012) #31 will have six variants, but it’s the Midtown Comics color and sketch variants that will fetch some aftermarket love. Be sure to check out InvestComics on Ebay for a chance to bid on those comics if you miss out. Oh yes one more thing. Superior Spider-Man #31 is sold out at the distributor.

Solar Man of the Atom (2014 Dynamite) #1 comes with twelve variants. Stuck in those variants someplace are two Rob Liefeld variants. Neat! Solar Man of the Atom gained huge popularity back in 1991 when the series was under the Valiant banner. These days, most of the characters are seeing resurgence. And if you missed the cool announcement coming out of the Sharp Comics camp, they are releasing limited edition variant connecting covers that include Turok, Solor, and Magnus from “Mr. Valiant” himself Bob Layton. Check out the full press release right HERE.

Batman Eternal (2014) #2 will introduce an old villain that has yet to be introduced in the New 52. Sinestro (2014) #1 will be a great read. His first appearance in Green Lantern #7 (1961) is always a nice book to keep in the collection.

A couple of comic covers this week pay tribute to yesteryear. Bad Ass (2014 Dynamite) #4 borrows from Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974). Godstorm Hercules Payne (2014) #1 pays homage to Action Comics #1 (1938). It’s nice to see a Zenescope Entertainment Ana_Alexanderbook that doesn’t involve any T&A on its variant cover.

IDW will release Transformers Windblade (2014) #1. Windblade first appeared this year in Transformers: Robots in Disguse #26 (2014). Did you know that the character Sheena is older than Superman? Sheena first appeared in the UK in 1937 and then in the states in 1938. Now in 2014, she appears again courtesy of Moonstone comics; Sheena (2014 Moonstone) #1.

A comic that may fly under the radar this week, but should be blipping on your screen is Porcelain (2014 Red 5) #1. Actress/Model Ana Alexander (Femme Fatales/Bones) is the creator/writer/star of this comic. It involves an assassin and it looks as though it’s done in a modern anime style. Be sure to check out this comic. Oh, in case you’re not too sure who Ana Alexander is, she’s pictured to the right.

Here are the rest of the number one issues to definitely check out this Wednesday. Mercenary Pig #1 from Aazurn Publishing is sold out at the distributor level. Got to love that title!  Translucid (2014) #1, Ghost Wolf (2014 Amigo) #1 (sold out), Time Lincoln Continental (2014) #1, Captain Action Cat (2014) #1, A Piggys Tale (2014) #1 (sold out),  and San Hannibal (2014) #1 (sold out).

 

See you soon. Invest wisely

Carpe Diem.

Within the speculators market there is one driving force behind it these day. Well actually three. One; movies, two; television, and three; rumors.

On this site throughout the years collectors would find some obscure character first appearances, their origin appearances, or maybe even their untimely departure issue. What about those whacked out characters? Got me thinking, with Hollywood and the television networks all vying for/searching for that “next” best thing within the comic book realm, why not put together a list of characters that could one day see the light of day? Well honestly, most of these dudes and dude- ette’s will probably NEVER see the light of day, but hey did anyone ever think 20 years ago that we’d see a gun touting manic raccoon on screen? There are also some very obvious suggestions in this article too. 

Before proceeding, not only will this article be all over the place, I need to point out that SOME of THESE comics hold absolutely no redeeming value other than my own meandering speculation views, personal favorite’s and just flat out fun of mere mentioning them. Take this with a grain of salt and please have fun along with me!

[scrollGallery id=341]

Let’s start with an obvious pick that has been eluding every comic book fan of its return since 1986. The series started in 1979. Rom ran for 7 years and boy was it a fun ride. So much so that there are petitions set out there asking for the return of Rom. The character most certainly has a very large appeal, but will the cult favorite ever make it out of doldrums of hiatus hell status from Hasbro? Here’s the thing folks, If Disney NOT Marvel ever decide Rom equals potential financial gain, it WILL get done. So can Disney wrestle away Rom from Hasbro? Disney will get their way if they want Rom…..they always do.

There are exactly 4 very key issues within the 75 issue run. Rom #1, Rom #’s 1718 (both X-Men appearance with Frank Miller covers), and Rom #75 (The final low print issue of the series). These are the 4 comics to grab within this series. Very affordable, very appealing, and it’s Rom.

In 2007, an unthinkable, unimaginable, the unfathomable happened. Captain America died! It made national news and it was a shockingly sad time within the comic book fandom. During his untimely death the rumors ran rampant as to who would take over the reins and don the shield. How many remember some comic fans bringing up Frank Castles’ name? Although a time for mourning, there were some funny suggestions as to who should take the mantle. One name in particular made the most sense, but Marvel didn’t give into to it. At the time of Rogers’ departure, American Eagle was appearing in the pages of a few comics. American Eagle is a native American and it would have made so much sense to have him don the shield for a while. Well it didn’t happen. Maybe one of the Captain America movies will have American Eagle become the next big Native American hero since……Tonto?? There is an influx of African American/female/foreign characters leading the way. Why not focus on an American Indian? Why not have a character that represents the foundations of America a mainstay within the Marvel Universe? Well if you’re a believer that Disney (who’s no stranger to the native American culture) will someday put American Eagle front and center then look for Marvel Two-In-One Annual #6 (1981) for his first appearance.

Staying on topic a bit here, there has been so much talk of a Black Panther movie but nothing concrete has solidified the rumors….yet. Although the talks of this movie happening has really sparked interest in an already collectable comic; Fantastic Four #52 (1966), Black Panthers first appearance, the collector still has some time to get this comic before the comic really takes off. The Jack Kirby comic is not only the first appearance, but it’s also the first African American super-hero ever.  Once the official announcement from Marvel Studios comes, Fantastic Four #52 will see an instant spike. Then the announcement of who will play him, another spike, then the first tease of the costume, another spike, well you get the idea. Buy this comic now if you can. You’ll be very happy you did.

How about some other very cool African American characters other than Luke Cage and Blade? One that  was talk of a television show that never panned out? Brother Voodoo! He first appeared in Strange Tales #169 (1973). How about Dagger from the awesome Cloak & Dagger team? How amazing would a Marvel film be featuring Cloak & Dagger? A collector can scoop up their first appearance for mega cheap if you shop around. Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (1982) gives readers a first look at this team. Check out the limited series from 1984 as well. 

Also on the movie front we have Doctor Strange rumored, but almost certain to be part of the next phase. Besides the Doc’s first appearance and
