Ms. Marvel #12 – The Red Widow Alessandro Taini variant is selling VERY well. We stated in the InvestComics Hot Picks #447 article that this issue features a 10 page story on Red Widow and we thought this could be Red Widow’s first cover appearance. Red Widow first appeared late last year in Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 and hasn’t seen much action thereafter. Well, looks like Marvel is making their move. Both the regular cover and Taini variant is sold out. 

Spook House #1 – New Albatross Exploding book. Eric Powell showed some muscle on his Hillbilly release. Will Spook House find the some success? There aren’t that many available on Ebay at the moment.

Skeptics #1 – The NYCC exclusive is having some good aftermarket success. The regular number issue comes out this Wednesday.

Seven To Eternity #2 – The number one issue exploded out of the gate. Issue number two comes this week.

Deadpool #21 – The introduction of Shakespool. To buy or not to buy?

Each week InvestComics seeks out a comic(s) on Ebay for $100 or less and then brings it to the attention of our fans. We call it IC 100 Club Pick. The idea is to get a great book at a great price. We do not own nor are we selling these comics. The comics are found by a random process. We do not know the ebay seller(s), nor are we promoting the Ebay seller. Any knowing from the Ebay seller of InvestComics or its affiliates is purely coincidental. (See disclaimer for more details). 

IC 100 Club Pick: Swamp Thing #7 9.2 (1973). Last week we found a high grade Swamp Thing signed by legend Bernie Wrightson. This week we revisit Swamp Thing with issue number seven graded at 9.2. The highlights of this particular comic; The first meeting ever between Batman and Swamp Thing drawn by Bernie Wrightson. Fans of Bernie know that he is an amazing Batman artist. His Batman: The Cult series with Jim Starlin is a classic. A high grade first meeting done by a creative legend for only $99.

With all of the new DC Rebirth comics and Marvel relaunching so many titles as well, a collector has to keep on top of the number one books as far as first appearances go. It’s happening quite often. One of these new players can bust out in a big way, so as always, be on alert.

Wonder Woman fans and comic fans will be treated to an awesome book this week. Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1 will be a who’s who in the creative industry within these pages. Variants galore (Jim Lee! Sweet.), creators galore, new stories, and DC states that there will be creators that have never illustrated Wonder Woman in a comic before, but will do so for the first time here. A steep $7.99 price tag may keep some away, but a definite pick up for us.
Flash #9 cover pays homage to the classic Flash #123 (1961). Original cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson. The Wednesday cover is by Carmine Di Giandomenico. What’s the odds of having two Carmine’s like that? Probably slim, but obviously possible.
A new Batman Beyond #1 from writer Dan Jurgens and artist Bernard Chang finds its way to a shelf near you. This number one makes its sixth volume debut. That’s a lot of number one debuts right? How about another sixth volume number one this week? Teen Titans #1 is also entering that six time debut issue this Wednesday.

From a sixth volume we go to a second volume. Detective Comics #943 may have a first appearance. Be on the look out for that. Rafael Albuquerque supplies a great second cover (B).
Speaking of covers, check out the Aco cover on Deathstroke #5. We love it.
A new DC Vigilante comic will be one to read this week; Vigilante Southland #1. We can’t help but reminisce about the first Vigilante series in the early 80’s that started off with writer Marv Wolfman and artist Keith Pollard in Vigilante #1 (1983). It lasted fifty issues with writer Paul Kupperberg and penciler Steve Erwin ending the series with an amazing story. Comic readers should definitely check out this short fifty issue series. Be prepared for an ending to this series as to none other in Vigilante #50. Click HERE to check out all the Vigilante comics available from all sellers on Ebay. Great series. We hope this Wednesday Gary Phillips (writer) and Elena Casagrande (artist) deliver as much fun as that 80’s series did. We have confidence they will. So we’ll be picking this up on new comic book day.

We informed readers a few weeks ago regarding the new Doctor Strange team (InvestComics Hot Picks #443). Seems like everyone is getting a team these days right? Anyway, the Wednesday Doctor Strange Sorcerers Supreme #1 will “debut” the Sorcerers Supreme team. As so Marvel may say, but we all know they debuted a few weeks ago in Doctor Strange Annual #1 as we already tipped you off.
The Doctor Strange movie must be drawing nearer because fans will be inundated with Strange books and appearances everywhere. Hence TWO number one comics released in the same week. Besides his new team book, comic fans will get Doctor Strange Mystic Apprentice #1.

Cover artist Alex Ross hits a home run with his All New All Different Avengers #15 cover. Stunning.
Marvel’s Civil War II is closing in on it’s final issue, so the battle intensifies. Civil War II #6; Check out that Marko Djurdjevic Spidey cover too. Caps in trouble!
The Punisher Annual #1 hits this week with one of the best Halloween covers from Marvel in a while. The cover is from Rahzzah.  Although the Ron Lim variant is awesome too. Wow on both.

Every month we will remind fans of the latest Spider-Man Deadpool release because we’ve told you time after time it will sell out. We’ve been saying this since issue number one. Spider-Man Deadpool #10 will be on the new release wall. It’ll probably….ah never mind, you get the idea.
Another one of our speculation calls comes to fruition. We called the Deadpool Mercs For Money characters to all get their own books soon back in January of this year. We provided everyone with their first appearances in the InvestComics Hot Picks #409 article and touched on these characters quite a few times thereafter. This week we see another one of those characters debuting in their own comic; Prowler #1.
….And Deadpool #21 this week debuts Shakespool. Need we say more on that one?

Ms. Marvel #12 will not only have a Red Widow 10 page story, but a Red Widow variant cover by Alessandro Taini as well. It’s quite awesome. We think this is the first Red Widow cover appearance since she first appeared in Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1 late last year.

Image Comics releases two second print number one issues this week. Surgeon #1 and Seven To Eternity #1. Both of these comics bring their second issue this week as well; Surgeon #2 and Seven To Eternity #2.
Fresh off of a huge New York Comic Con 2016 presence, Valiant Entertainment debuts a new Bloodshot series; Bloodshot USA #1. All the variants covers are amazing. We like the Doug Braithwaite as our favorite. Also, with every release we remind readers and collectors about Generation Zero from Valiant. We think Generation Zero is the modern day team for the modern day comic reader. Check out Generation Zero #3 this Wednesday.
Eric Powell’s imprint Albatross Exploding publishing are reaping the rewards from their hit comic Hillbilly. This week they will reap rewards once again with their kids anthology series Spookhouse #1. A collection of scary stories from yours truly; Eric Powell.
Black Mask Comics, is a small publisher with big idea’s. We say it ALL the time, buy Black Mask comics. They’re always quality reads and sometimes pay dividends on the speculative side. Can’t go wrong here. This week from Black Mask Comics; Skeptics #1.

Put together one of the most popular video games of all time with a popular genre of today and you’ll get Call of Duty Zombies #1 comic from Dark Horse.
Here are some other great indie comics to check out this week. Markiplier #1 (Red Giant Entertainment). Wolfcop #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Inspector Oh #1 (Devils Due Publishing). Another Castle #5 (Kris Anka cover art).

DC introduces a couple of new charters this week. Keep your eyes open for Batman & Robin #20 with White Knight, as well as Flash #9 with Hot Pursuit. Superman is introduced to the “new” Wonder Woman in Superman #708. The cool thing about this issue is that Superman thinks he knows her already; he just can’t quite place it…..yet. Green Lantern fans will be all over the new Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #7 this week. It’s the prelude to “War of the Green Lanterns”. These Green Lantern event storylines keep on coming! Speaking of Green Lantern, isn’t it wonderful to still see the rivalry between DC and Marvel? This past week comic collectors saw Marvel’s first cover to the Event story named “Fear Itself”. This week DC releases a reprinting of the Green Lantern Fear Itself graphic novel from 1999. Coincidence? No, just some good old fashion competition.

Marvel comes in with a very busy week. Starting with Amazing Spider-Man #654. Marvel promises that “Things will never be the same” theme with this Spidey issue. Maybe one of these days, we’ll all really be shocked and say, “wow, now THAT is changing things!” Will Marvel deliver? Let’s see on Wednesday morning! Switching from changes to secrets, see what Nick Fury has been hiding for decades? Marvel once again beating on the proverbial hype machine drum says this issue will SHOCK you. Well, on to Wednesday morning for another shocker. Make sure to bring your Xanax, it may be a rough morning. Back to Spidey for a second, Ultimate Spider-Man #153 is the beginning of the end for the Ultimate Spider-Man in what looks to be a prelude into the “Death of Spider-Man” story. An interesting blast from the past from Marvel with Power Man & Iron Fist #1 comes out this week. Whatever happened to Cloak and Dagger? Well that’s another story for another time. So with the number 1 issue, we naturally should find when the first time these two heroes hooked up. Look for Power Man (1974) #48. Check out these names attached this comic, ready? Claremont, Byrne, Kane, Sinnott, and Goodwin. Wow that’s some lineup huh? All of this for $14! This is a no-brainer collectors. Anyone remember the 90’s in the comic book world? Everything you bought was going to send your next kid off to college, set up for an early retirement, or buy that new car you wanted. Rob Liefeld was a one of the main reasons for the boom. Collectors either loved him or hated him. Rob seemed to introduce characters, create characters at an alarming rate. Whether it was for Marvel or Image, didn’t matter, collectors loved buying his stuff. Fast forward to 2011. Onslaught #1 will feature, not 1, but 2 covers from Rob Liefeld this week. Both essentially the same exact covers, but who cares?? It’s the 90’s….err wait it’s 2011. Nah, just have fun with it will ya! Onslaught’s first appearance was in X-Man #15 (1996). Buy this comic in some $1 bin at any local comic shop.  We’ll get back to the 90’s in a minute, but want to see a good fight this week? How about Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimate’s #1?

Independents this week feature the return of the 90’s for one book, that one book being Sonic Universe #25. This comic comes complete with a “shiny silver” cover! Cool! Can you say, sold out with the second print being a “shiny gold” cover? Yea, thought so. Tim Seeley, Dan Leister, and Erik Larsen begin the regular ongoing Hack/Slash Ongoing #1. If you missed Tim Seeley’s interview on InvestComics TV, go right here to check it out! Spawn #202 introduces a major new villain. This series is hot right now, so expect a quick sellout on this one. Last but not least, don’t forget to check out the new SpongeBob Comics #1!
