Happy holiday’s to all of our fans! You have continued our reign as the longest entertainment/speculative comic book website on the net. We appreciate every single one of you. Let’s get to this week’s comics….

Although we think Marvel is playing up the Phoenix return a bit too much, a new dedicated comic this Wednesday declares the big return; Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1. Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Leinil Francis Yu.
Star Wars fans will be happy campers this Wednesday. If you have seen The Last Jedi movie, you will have learned and seen a planet named Crait. A salt ridden planet in which the Resistance did battle with the First Order many years before. A new comic this week will focus in on that battle. Check out Star Wars The Last Jedi – The Storms of Crait #1. Creators Ben Acker, Ben Blacker and Mike Mayhew do the honors.
Amazing Spider-Man #793 continues the hot Venom Inc. (part 4) storyline.
Looks as though The Purple Man character is really making his presence felt lately. Jessica Jones #15; Return of The Purple Man part 3. Purple Man first appeared in Daredevil #4 (1964).

Buy/Bid – Amz Spm #793

Buy/Bid – Doomsday #2

Action Comics #994

Buy/Bid – Hawkman #1

Teen Titans #15

DC’s Doomsday Clock #2 arrives this week. Fans ate up the first issue with a mostly reserved opinion on whether or not they’ll like where writer Geoff Johns is leading us to, let’s see how the follow-up goes. We have great faith it will go just right.
A possible new villain appearance in Action Comics #994. “Booster Shot” part 2.
The “Super Sons of Tomorrow” story continues in Teen Titans #15.
Phoenix is back for Marvel this week, Hawkman will bid his return this week as well. Check out Hawkman Found #1 from Jeff Lemire, Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan.

InvestComics 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.
A new release from Scout Comics; Ghosts of Hiroshima #1. With Scout comics, two things are always guaranteed, good art and good storytelling. Creators; Jim Krueger and Luigi Borillo.
From interesting new release from Image Comics; Bonehead #1 from creators Bryan Edward Hill and Rhoald Marcellius.
Not sure how much of the new Cerebus comic is new material (if at all), but with creative names like Dave Sim and Frank Miller (Dark Knight homage cover) attached, no matter; The Vark Knight Returns #1.
Comix Tribe had Sink #3 on delay, so we’re not sure if Sink #4 will hit this week. It’s supposed to, so we’ll see. It’s a hot series for the Tribe, so hopefully they get back on schedule.

Scarlett’s Strike Force #1 (IDW); creators Aubrey Sitterson and Nelson Daniel.
Magika #1 (Red Giant); creators David Lawrence, Kevin Juaire and Sebastian Cheng.
Zipper: Cosmic Jungle #1 (Arcana Comics).

One of the most anticipated DC Comics in some time will arrive this Wednesday. Doomsday Clock #1 is being played out as must-see TV. Well in this case, must-read comic. Writer Geoff Johns has made mini video’s teasing the concept of this comic. DC has been touting the series as THE comic series to change ALL things DC. Okay, so we’re sold, get this book in our hands. Series artist will be Gary Frank.
DC’s Etrigan is back with Demon Hell Is Earth #1. Written by Andrew Constant. Art by Brad Walker. Demon first appeared in Demon #1 (1972). Written and drawn by Jack “King” Kirby. A seller on Ebay has a 9.0 graded with free shipping for only $220.45. Not too bad. Click HERE to check it out.

Flash #35 begins a new story; Black Hole. Creators Joshua Williamson, Michael Moreci and Pop Mhan.
Fall of The Batmen part one begins in Detective Comics #969. Creators James Tynion IV, Alvaro Martinez and Raul Fernandez.
In the middle of 2016, writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti came up with a new character. The new character was named Red Tool. A parody of sorts on the Deadpool character. It was an immediate hit with the fans. Red Tool first appeared in Harley Quinn #26 and Harley Quinn #27. Cameo/first “full” appearance stuff within the collectors market I still vehemently disagree with overall, but that’s a story for another day. This Wednesday, Harley Quinn #32 starts a secret origin backup story and it focuses on…….Red Tool!
A new DC/Vertigo book; Imaginary Fiends #1. Written by Tim Seeley and illustrated by Stephen Molnar. Yes, a Vertigo comic written by Tim Seeley. Definite reading material.
A possible cameo or first appearance in this week’s Action Comics #992. Dan Jurgens and Steve Pugh.

Click To Buy Now – Detective Comics #871

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: Detective Comics #871 graded 9.6. It’s kind of a rare thing these days to get a JOCK signature. Anyone that follows InvestComics knows how much we love the artist Jock. We have an entire checklist of our favorite works by him right HERE. So this comic is a graded 9.6 with a Scott Snyder and a Jock signature. For only $99, this is a nice book.

Hold on folks, here come the DC Rebirth books. Be on the look out for first appearances. It only takes ONE to breakout and cause quite a stir in the aftermarket. Be on top of these good stories as DC breaths new life into their Rebirth era. Here are some highlights; Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 puts writer Geoff Johns back with artist Ethan Van Sciver on a Green Lantern book. These two make Lantern poetry together. “Newer” Green Lanterns Jessica Cruz (first appearance in Justice League #30 – 2014) and Simon Baz (First appearance was in The New 52 FCBD Special Edition #1 – 2012. First origin was in Green Lantern #0 – 2012) lead the charge here.

A mega four issue comic crossover happens all in one comic this week. Where you ask? Only one comic could pull this off, Deadpool #13. Duh! That Khoi Pham variant cover though…….
Marvel’s Civil War II officially gets under way this week. Civil War II #1 is solicited as “CLASSIFIED”. More of the same with Invincible Iron Man #10. Boy we hate that. Now we have to wait another week before finding out what is so “classified”. The Rafael Alburquerque hip hop cover is dope though. We’ll just stare at that until Wednesday’s new comic book day.

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.

Aquaman, seven series number one issues, two of which were limited series. None of the regular series made it past 77 issues. What does this mean exactly? Well it means that Aquaman was never a character taken very seriously. Always on the receiving end of the joke. Nowadays things are a bit different (many thanks to Geoff Johns), although the character still holds the stigma of being a lame duck in many circles, Warner Brothers will be going all in with a solo movie release. Rumor has it that he’ll first appear in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice first, then we’ll see the solo movie a couple of years later. It’s then we’ll see if the world is truly ready for a live action Aquaman movie.

It was writer Geoff Johns that vowed to make Aquaman a cool character. He’s achieved this feat with many naysayers saying it couldn’t be done. Now the transition to film will be the defining moment for the most powerful water character in the entire DC Universe.

Below are some key Aquaman appearances throughout the years. First appearances, number one issues, appearances in other comics, etc. Debuting from 1941, there are plenty of comics to look for here. Plenty of affordable books along the way here too.

Please remember as always here on InvestComics, read the disclaimer. With that said, there will in fact be books that are not on this list. They were probably inadvertently missed. No problem, list your favorite book below or in the comment section in one of our social media outlets. Also remember that the Aquaman movie comes out in 2018, there are no right or wrong answers here.

These articles focus on comics that no one is talking about or speculating on anymore. Mostly for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but with that said these comics have been long forgotten and simply not thought of by many collectors. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down and worth some extra cash in the aftermarket, but isn’t the hunt always more fun? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red links provided in this article or comic cover, that’s if you don’t feel like hunting them down or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Or have a resurgence? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Warlock Special Edition (1982) Can’t afford or find the early Warlock stories from Strange Tales? How about an awesome six part reprint series? Jim Starlin provides new covers. And with Warlock rumored to debut in the Marvel Cinematic universe eventually, these books will be in demand even though they are reprints.

The Black Dragon (1985) This long forgotten sword and sorcery series was brought to you by writer Chris Claremont and artist John Bolton. Great stuff here.

Tigra (2002) Why hasn’t Tigra become an Avenger in the movies? Too campy maybe? But so cool though. This forgotten series was penciled by Mike Deodato Jr (and covers). Written by Christina Z.

Claws (2006) This series had smash hit written all over it. It did okay for its time, but no one remembers it today. Written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. Art and covers by Joseph Michael Linsner.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 7/23/14

Three very hot comics on the must buy list from the speculative side hit on Wednesday. Yes they will be great reads, but you may want to pick up an extra copy on each. On one though, you’ll have to do some very quick maneuvering. Life with Archie (2010) #37 is the quickie culprit here. This comic takes place one year after the death of Archie (Life of Archie #36). The death issue had close friends of mine, non-comic collecting, texting me about the death issue. So with that in mind, realizing that the death of Archie has reached the media and people who really don’t know the real deal about Life of Archie #36. It’s not really a death issue. It’s an alternate telling of his death. Archie will live on in the comic book world, in “real time” if you will. Again, keeping this all in perspective, the sold out Life of Archie #36 and the now Sold Out Life of Archie #37 will sell for a nice premium in the aftermarket…….but for an extremely limited time. Very limited. Cash out as quickly as possible with the fad of Archie’s death. Get the variants from names like Walt Simonson, Jill Thompson, or even Alex Ross to get the most bang for your buck. There are other very nice variants available, but these three just mentioned are good to almost guarantee a return on your money with extra to buy other significant comics coming out this week.

[scrollGallery id=361]

Significant like Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #4. Unlike the Archie book, this comic is a bit of a buy and hold pattern. It might be hot right out of the gate, or maybe not. Here’s the deal. Have we gone the route of other people bitten by THE radioactive spider? Sure we have. But these days things are a bit different. We get the attractive girl (look at that cover), we get a superstar Spider-Man writer at the helm (Dan Slott), we have Hollywood breathing down the neck of every possible character within the Marvel Universe right now (Black Cat IS coming), and simply put SILK looks bad ass. Maybe this will be an X-23 first appearance? NYX was not a hot book right away. Not until the collectors realized that X-23 was actually in that book that it went bonkers. The Marvel solicitations had no mention of X-23. The obvious difference with Silk’s first appearance is that we all know it’s coming. The key to this first appearance and how big it will be depends on Dan Slott. Will the writer build her up to be her own entity?…..Her own persona?…..Some serious character development to keep the attention of a reader? If all of these things line up there are a few things to consider here. A: She will eventually get her own comic, B: This will be the first appearance of any significant character HP72314 (2)out of a Spidey book in a while, and C: Amazing Spider-Man #1 a couple of months ago would be the first appearance of Silk. Well actually the girl that got bit by the Spider. Hang onto Amazing Spider-Man #3 coming this Wednesday; I see a lot of upside here with the new girl on the block, Silk.

The third must get this Wednesday is Ragnarok (2014 IDW) #1. Legend Walt Simonson brings fans a new epic comic. A sold out epic comic at that! The cover for some reason brings me back to Thor #337 (1983), in which Mr. Simonson was singlehandedly responsible for putting Thor back on the map. Jack Kirby….Walt Simonson. Get Ragnarok #1, if anything you have an awesome read ahead for you, but something tells me that this will fall in favor on the spec side.

….More upside, but in the reading department coming from IDW. Transformers vs G.I. Joe (2014 IDW) #1 is Sold Out across the board. Regular cover and variants! Not sure what all the fuss is about here. They first fought in 1987 (Marvel Comics) and they went  at it a few times after that. Some loyal fans looking for a good fight. Don’t expect aftermarket to be of any promise with this, but expect some butt kicking action!

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #4 features a secret origin story on Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Superman (2011 3rd Series) #33 continues the focus on Ulysses as Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. bring more mystery in the background of this issue.

Supreme Blue Rose (2014 Image) #1 is sold out at Diamond. Better take a look at that one. IDW pokes fun at Marvel’s Secret Wars, Civil War and DC’s Crisis with Super Secret Crisis War Johnny Bravo (2014) #1. Great stuff here.

Owlgirls (2014 Red Anvil) #1 is about sold out. Check out this one on the shelf. Tuki Save The Humans (2014) #1 from Cartoon Books is also one to check out.

…And rounding out the week with other books that look like fantastic reads; Zombie Tramp (2014) Ongoing #1, Monster Motors (2014 IDW) #1, Star Spangled War Stories G.I. Zombie (2014) #1 (a Jimmy Palmiotti/Justin Gray comic, definite awesome read here),  Victorian Secret Midwinter Special (2014) #1 (almost sold out),  and Storm (2014 3rd Series) #1.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 6/25/14

Everything you are about to read is All original material from InvestComics. 100% Authentic. No borrowed material ever, 100% InvestComics.

InvestComics has been posting some awesome pictures from Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con on its social media outlets. You MUST go there and check out the pictures that VP Rafael Rosario has been sending our way! He was also at the Special Edition New York Con last weekend and sent a boat load of pictures from there too! More pictures coming. Special thanks to Correspondent Stephanie Bloom, who reported back with some images from Wizard World Philly. Thank you Stephanie!

A quick note, the rumor mill is stirring about Moon Knight making his film debut. InvestComics has been all over this for YEARS with constant mentions of this. Here is a quickie from 2009 from InvestComics if you’d like to take a look; HERE

SupermanOne of the most anticipated Superman comics to come has arrived, Superman (2011 3rd Series) #32. Well, it’ll be here Wednesday, but it’ll be here. The new creative team of writer Geoff Johns and artist John Romita Jr. will be taking the reins. The folks at DC Comics are banking on this to be a huge hit. As well they should! This two are talents here! From all of the previews, it looks like it’s going to be a success. DC is billing the event as John Romita Jr.’s first DC work ever. While that may seem true to the masses, there is one thing that DC won’t tell you, but InvestComics will. Well, DC doesn’t have to say anything because maybe they didn’t give Mr. Romita Jr. a check back in 1994 or 1997 either. You see Mr. Romita Jr. penciled a book called Punisher/Batman: Deadly Knights in 1994 that featured that DC character in the title here. So what about 1997 you may ask? Well that one is a better book to discuss. You see, while DC, I guess didn’t give John a check for that 94 book, in 1997 he did a cover for a trade called Crossover Classics. That cover features a John Romita Jr. ……..(ready for this?)…….Superman! Cool right?! So not only is DC’s claim that the new Superman comic coming this Wednesday will be Jr.’s first DC work a bit tainted, but it’s also not the first time he’s drawn Superman professionally. What does this all mean? Well it means that if the new Superman comic heats up, the speculator could probably make a more attractive sale by offering his first true Superman work along with the hot comic. Now if you really want to make some nice cash, here’s what you do. Get either the incentive sketch variant or the incentive variant (the one he’s holding that big rock from crushing him), get them signature series/graded, couple the sale of the trade and your new 9.8 or higher signature series book and you have something very nice that a collector will want. Don’t forget to let them know that InvestComics helped you out with this one…….don’t be selfish.

[scrollGallery id=354]

death_of_wolverineSticking to the variant/signature series topic for a minute, Savage Hulk (2014) #1 will come with fanfare that seems a bit less than stellar. This shouldn’t deter the speculator from grabbing a possible gem here though. It’s an expensive grab, but one that could pay off. With the hyperbole of the new series comes a very scarce Alex Ross sketch variant. The variant could run you anywhere from $250 – $300 easily. Get an Alex Ross sig with a 9.8 or higher grade and you have a nice turnover here.

A funny thing I ran across while doing research for this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks article. Maybe someone can bring some clarification for me. Wolverine (2014 5th Series) #9 has two covers that appear to be the same, but one claw seems to be broken on one of the covers. The listing for the comic has the broken claw as the regular cover, but then the other variant cover (cover not shown within the solicitations) is done by another artist. It looks like the same artist, same cover, just a broken claw. Are there 3 covers to this comic? Take a look at the covers in this article and you’ll see it’s the same thing minus the claw. Strange……anyway, if anyone is gearing up for the whole Death of Wolverine comic, you may want to pick up the new Wolverine book this week. The end begins here for Logan.

If you know the current market, you know that there is a big comic coming from Image this week. Outcast (2014 Image) #1 is not to be missed. Even if you’re not a fan of Robert Kirkman, the Outcast #1 will be his first horror book since that zombie one that seems a tad successful. Buy this comic.

Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #3 will continue its hot streak this week with an appearance of the Black Cat and Silk. Who is Silk you say? She was mentioned a while ago in these here articles, but she’s going to bust out in a huge, big, large way by issue Punisher_Batman Superman_variantnumber four. That issue will be her first “official” appearance, but for now we get drips and drabs of her as a girl getting bit by a spider, shooting web, etc. in each issue. In issue number three, we see more of “this girl”. Silk will be a force when she arrives. Be prepared.

The Power Ring will be “all-new” in Justice League (2011) #31, the first appearance of the new Power Ring. The first appearance of Power Ring was back in 1964’s Justice League of America #29.

Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #14 will feature a Sugar and Spike back story. Sugar and Spike date all the way back to 1956 in their self-titled book, which happens to be their first appearance as well.

Back a year or two or three ago, Alien Legion was on tap to becoming a movie. These days, much of that talk has died down. This Wednesday however, Alien Legion will make its triumphant return in Alien Legion Uncivil War (2014) #1. Since much of the movie talk died down, Alien Legion is readily available for any of the speculators out there. Do yourself a favor and buy the Alien Legion #1 (1984) from Epic Comics because the new book will probably sell out and have all eyes set back on the Alien Legion franchise. In some cases, some of you can find the 1984 comic in the one dollar bins at your local shops.

InvestComics reported the Kickstarter campaign for Mighty Titan a while back. Now we can all bask in the awesomeness of Mighty Titan (2014) #1. Dealing with the harsh realities of cancer as the subject matter here comes a hero. This sold out comic will turn some heads.

Other definite about to be sold out or sold out comics to check out this week are; Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War (2014) #1, Saga (2012 Image) #20, C.O.W.L. #2, 64-Bit Zombie (2014) #1, and Spider-Man Spectacular (2014) #0.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

GEOFF JOHNS and JOHN ROMITA JR. new SUPERMAN creative team

On the latest DC ALL ACCESS Dan Dido, Geoff Johns and a special guest confirmed what BLEEDING COOL had leaked earlier today. Comic legend John Romita Jr., mostly associated with Marvel, where his even more legendary father left his mark on basically every character and title, will be coming over to DC and joining Geoff Johns on SUPERMAN.

DC had teased a snippet of a picture for this earlier. I have to say, the new 52 armor lends itself well to Romita’s familiar blocky style.  In fact, the image made me think of 90’s Superman artist Jon Bogdanove.

Big post FOREVER EVIL Changes for JUSTICE LEAGUE books

Changes, we knew they were coming; partly, because shaking up status quo has become the status quo in comics in recent years, but mostly because Geoff Johns has openly stated that changes were coming. That’s usually a good hint.

Well, today some of those changes have been revealed, and they’re doozies! On one hand, Jeff Lemire’s teased JUSTICE LEAGUE CANADA has been redubbed JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED. Fret not, oh neighbors to the north, JLU will still be based in Canada, but they’ve expanded their scope, patrolling all corners of the DCU, including space. Which makes sense considering Martina Manhunter and Adam Strange will amongst the ranks. DC shared the news with USA TODAY, including the starting roster of Animal Man, Supergirl (non Red Lantern variety, at least on the cover), Martian Manhunter, Star Girl, Green Arrow, and Adam Strange, whose wife, Alanna will play more of the hero role.

“Maybe the swashbuckling space hero we’re used to from Adam Strange would probably describe Alanna a bit more. Adam’s a bit more of a nerdy science guy. He’s not so much the swashbuckling one.”

JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED will eventually get a new teen member from Ontario area, and will interact with Hawkman and Thannagar in their second arc. The book will be drawn by fan fave Mike McKone.

JLU-Cv0-var

In even BIGGER news, Geoff Johns told Newsarama that there will be a shake-up to the JUSTICE LEAGUE roster in April. Brace yourselves…post Forever Evil, LEX LUTHOR and CAPTAIN COLD are joining the Justice League! Yup, check out the cover to issue #30, which shows Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Shazam, Lex Luthor and Captain Cold. Absent from the cover are Superman and Flash, presumable over irreconcilable differences.  It’s also interesting to note that there are no Green Lanterns on either team. Hal had left the JL awhile ago, and Guy, now a Red Lantern had the Justice League International dissolve out from under him. Which leaves us wondering where Simon Baz ends up.

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,

The Dawning #1

What’s next in TRINITY WARS and beyond?

So with writer Geoff Johns out of the Green Lantern picture, DC is shaking things up already. Check out what new Lantern writer Robert Venditti is doing in Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #21 this Wednesday. Hal Jordan takes center stage! And just in case you missed it, InvestComics did happen to land an interview with Robert about 3 months ago. You can check that out by clicking right HERE.

DC’s Batwing series will reveal the NEW Batwing in Batwing (2011) #21. Not only is this a cool thing, but it sports the best Batwing cover of its 21 issue run so far. The cover is done by Ken Lashley.

Astro City (2013 3rd Series) #1 will be a quick sellout this week. DC will not only bring Astro City back to the comic book world, but will make this an ongoing as well. It will also introduce the fans to some new characters as well, so some first appearances to look for in here. Astro City originally came out in 1995 from Image Comics. Kurt Busiek was all over that as he is in 2013. Don’t sleep on this third series attempt to get this Astro City thing going. Third time is always a charm.

Lee Weeks has to be one of the industry’s most underrated creators out there today. He’s been around this comic book stuff since the 1980’s. But his name never seems to come up in many conversations. Lee weeks’ most notable work is on Daredevil. So with that, Daredevil Dark Nights (2013) #1 this Wednesday showcases Lee’s Daredevil artistry talent. This man is boss with the Daredevil character. His first crack at Daredevil was in Daredevil #284 (1990), where he remained the regular artist for over 2 years. Yes, Lee was doing something right! Next time you see him at a convention, tell him he’s boss and that InvestComics said so too.

Anyone like Mark Millar or John Romita Jr.? How about some Kiss-Ass? Check out the “last ever” Kick-Ass story arc from these two starting this Wednesday. Kick-Ass 3 (2013 Marvel) #1 will be it folks! That’s it! No more after this! Well maybe until the next big payday comes up in a few years, but still.   

So not in the mood for some Kick-Ass? How about a Bad-Ass then? Thanos Rising (2013) #3 is the baddest villain in all of Marvel and he will prove his worth in some serious bloodshed this week. Be sure to check out Thanos ripping people new….urr…yea, beating people up real bad.

Borrowing from the shock value of titles from our friend Jeff Kaufman (Whore), Zenescope brings us Screwed (2013 Zenescope) #1. Will it be as good as Whore? By comparison, neither one of these books have anything remotely close to being alike in anyway, but let’s see if Screwed #1 lives up to the billing of Whore. Antarctic Press is attempting to bring the horror genre back in Macabre (2013 Antarctic Press) #0. Should be an interesting to see how fans take to this. And rounding out this week we have Herobear and the Kid Special (2013 Kaboom) #1. Looks like fun!

Be sure to SHARE this article and let us know (proof/link) that you have done so to WIN a Walking Dead autograph from Michael Koske!

This week in the InvestComics Hot Picks we have a combination of 9 number one issues/zero issues. But before we get to that, a comic book run like no other is coming to close to much of the dismay of many fanboys. Geoff Johns will end his run on Green Lantern this week with a double sized issue. Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #20 will be the issue that every fan will be talking about this coming Wednesday. The only thing we ponder is, why the hefty $7.99 price tag? Ouch. Granted a double sized, but throw a bone here will ya? Anyway, DC played it smart here because they will in fact get their $7.99 being that it’s the climatic final issue of Geoff’s run so kudos to them! (We’re in business here kids, don’t kid yourselves). So with the ending so near, InvestComics went searching for a beginning…..Geoff Johns first Green Lantern work. Well, you’d have to go all the way back to a backup story in 1999’s Green Lantern Secret Files #2. The backup story is called “Lost Pages: Haunting.” He wrote the backup that featured only one Lantern; Hal Jordan. So there you have it, the first and the last. The man single handedly responsible for the “Rebirth” of a character that was in the doldrums since the creative team of Neal Adams/Dennis O’Neil. He was also responsible  for the launching of a Green Lantern movie. So, want to cash in on this? Buy the final issue, couple that with the GL Secret Files #2 and bam! You’re welcome.

With the hit television series Arrow bringing its season finale to the table, It’s only fitting that Arrow (2012 DC) #7 this week brings one of his main adversary’s front and center. The origin of Deathstroke will be revealed. A cult favorite, Deathstroke is a breakout character that seems poised for the big screen someday. When this happens, probably not an IF here, but when it does, be sure to have your paws on The New Teen Titans #2 (1980). Already a collector’s book, this will continue to rise as the years pass us by. It will explode once he makes his appearance on the big screen. The New Teen Titans #2 comic appeared more than 8 years ago in the InvestComics magazine as a solid buy. This still hold true for today.

Ultimate Wolverine (2013) #4 will introduce a new villain, as Wolverine & Cap fight a villain “unlike anything we’ve seen.” In A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #8. Journey into Mystery (2011 3rd Series) #652 will bring back Beta Ray Bill!

Two sleeper issues coming at us this Wednesday. Deep Sea (2013 Dark Horse) #0 from the creative team of Jimmy Palimiotti and Justin Gray and Green Team (2013 DC) #1. Green Team looks like a very interesting read, definitely need to check that out.

Mike Mignola’s creation; Buster Oakley will star in Lobster Johnson Satan Smells A Rat (2013 Dark Horse) #0. Buster’s first appearance was in Hellboy: Box Full of Evil #1 (1999). Our friend Tom Mumme along with Blue Juice publishing bring Accelerators (2013 Blue Juice) #1 this Wednesday. Must check that out.

Rounding out the week (in no particular order) of MUST looks/reads/have’s; Solid State Tank Girl (2013 Titan) #1, Bounce (2013 Image) #1, DMC Devil May Cry Vergil Chronicles (2013 Titan) #1, Sex (2013 Image) #3, Half Past Danger (2013 IDW) #1, Jirni (2013 Aspen) #2, Akaneiro (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Werewolves Hunger (2013 Zenescope) #1.

GEOFF JOHNS leaves GREEN LANTERN with issue #20

Geoff Johns has announced that his nine year run as the writer of GREEN LANTERN will wrap up with issue #20.

He told DC COMICS’ Official Blog

So here’s the sad news: Doug Mahnke and I are closing the GREEN LANTERN SAGA that began with GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH #1 with this May’s 64-page GREEN LANTERN #20. As every storyline is coming to a head, it feels like the right time. The book is still doing great. The characters are as vibrant as ever. Let’s go out how we started – on a high note.

Counting up between the GREEN LANTERN monthly series, REBIRTH, BLACKEST NIGHT and the various one-shots and specials…that makes over 100 issues of GREEN LANTERN I’ve had the absolute privilege, pleasure and fortune to write.

He went on to tease his final issue and his continued work on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA.

So what will GREEN LANTERN #20 bring? The bizarre return of Hal Jordan, the final fate of Sinestro, the revelation of the First Lantern and an ending that I hope pays off everything we’ve ever done and ever created with GREEN LANTERN. It has art by Doug Mahnke, Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado and I’ve poured everything I can into the script.

I’m off to focus my energy on the JUSTICE LEAGUE universe as we head into what I hope is an exciting plan – Simon Baz and B’dg will be along for the ride in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA – and you’ll no doubt see Hal Jordan and some of the other Lanterns in the world of the Justice League before too long. And Sinestro…? You’ll have to read GREEN LANTERN #20 for that…

And, of course, he ended by saying

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night –

All Will Be Well,
Geoff

As yet, no word on who will be taking over writing chores for the series.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 12-5-12.

Avengers (2012 5th Series) #1 from Marvel NOW! is so secret that the solicit for the issue says “Classified.” One thing we know is NOT classified is the first appearance of this team in Avengers #1 (1963), brought to you by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee of course. A graded CGC 9.4 sold for $185,000 recently. Only one grade higher than this out there and that’s a 9.6. The Avengers are a big draw/sell right now. Look for this comic to continue its upward climb with no limit in sight. 500K very soon is not that far off of the realm here folks.

Continuing with Marvel NOW! and their re-launch titles we get Thunderbolts (2012 2nd Series) #1. The original title debuted in 1997 with Busiek and Bagley at the helm. It was and still is a very popular series. The 1997 number one issue can be bought at a very affordable price these days. So much so that you may be able to find it at your local comic shop or convention in the dollar bins.

[scrollGallery id=203]

As mentioned in previous InvestComics Hot Picks, the best part of the re-launch titles is that we get to see/read about new heroes, villains, status quo, new directions and so much more. Iron Man (2012 5th Series) #3 however we get to check out the newest Stealth Armor in Tony’s repertoire. It’s so bad ass that Marvel says “it’s the most subtle Iron Man Armor of all time!” Looking forward to this!

DC Comics debuts a new number one issue into their restart world, New 52, with Human Bomb (2012 DC) #1. Human Bomb debuted in Police Comics #1 from 1941. A graded CGC 8.0 sold for $7,000 in recent months with only 1 9.4 graded copy sitting out there. Only a total of 25 of these comics have been graded to date. The issue not only features the first appearance of Human Bomb, but also Plastic Man and Phantom Lady.

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #7 figures into the equation with revelations of who the new Hawkgirl is within the new 52 Universe. Where there is girl there is man. The Brave and the Bold #34 (1961) was Hawkgirl’s debut as well as Hawkman. Both of these characters need an “Aquaman/Geoff Johns” treatment because they are simply put, lame. As cool as one may make them look at times, they never seem to catch on the right way. A 9.0 CGC Graded of this comic sold for only $3,000? Yes exactly, lame character(s) equals lower cost. There are 9 graded at the 9.0 mark with 6 more at the 9.4 mark. The TRUE mark on this book however is that the late great Joe Kubert is all over it!

Finally this week, check out Image Comics’ I Love Trouble (2012 Image) #1. Looks like fun.

More Hot Picks & Hot Chicks coming soon stay tuned! Videos from New York Comic Con 2012 are also coming as well!

See you next week, Invest wisely.

CW’s Arrow gets digital comic, plus GEOFF JOHNS cowrites an episode!

Big news from DC about next month’s new ARROW show on the CW. The show will get a digital comic, much like it’s predecessor, SMALLVILLE has. I imagine that, again like SMALLVILLE, the comic will be released in instllments and later collected in print.

But that’s not all! DC writing guru, Geoff Johns has cowritten episode 107, “Muse on Fire”, with  Executive Producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg.

Johns says:

“I’m thrilled to be writing this episode of ARROW, and while I can’t give too much away, I think comic fans are going to like what we have in store for them – keep an eye out for the Huntress.”

He also tweeted the following:

The first episode of ARROW I wrote with @mguggenheim & @AJKreisbergstarts shooting today – keep an eye out for the Huntress this fall!

As comic fans eagerly await the October 10 premiere of the new CW show ARROW, we have news that will make the countdown even more exciting. DC Entertainment is producing a new, weekly digital comic book based on the show that will also debut on October 10.

 

The new digital comic series will take fans deeper into the world of ARROW, delving further into character back stories and often filling in the gaps between episodes. With ARROW Executive Producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg on writing duties – this comic is a must-have for fans of the show. On the art side, legendary GREEN ARROW comic book writer and artist Mike Grell is on board to draw the first two covers, with rising stars Sergio Sandoval and Jorge Jimenez tapped to do artwork in subsequent chapters.

 

“This is incredibly exciting for us.  For one thing, Andrew and I are not just television and comic book writers — we’re comic book fans.  We’re also extremely excited to be doing something that I don’t think has ever been done before:  a weekly comic which ties directly into a TV series with stories that fill in important gaps in the television narrative and written by the show’s writing staff,” said Guggenheim.

 

The first digital chapter of ARROW will go on sale for $.99 on October 10, followed by new weekly chapters each Wednesday.  The comic series will also be collected in print with three digital chapters on sale in one print issue for $3.99 starting on November 28.

 

About the Show

From executive producers Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe) and David Nutter (Smallville), hard-hitting action TV series Arrow reinvents the DC Comics hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and a very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime. The series stars Stephen Amell (Private Practice), Colin Donnell (Pan Am), Katie Cassidy (Supernatural), David Ramsey (Dexter), Willa Holland (The O.C.) with Susanna Thompson (Dragonfly) and Paul Blackthorne (The River). From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Arrow will air Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW this fall.

Justice League/Aquaman crossover for THRONE OF ATLANTIS

USA TODAY revealed that not only is the JUSTICE LEAGUE getting a new ART TEAM AND LINE-UP, but the book will crossover with AQUAMAN for THRONE OF ATLANTIS.

Geoff Johns, writer for both titles, told USA:

“There’s still questions of what Atlantis is like and what they do and what they’re capable of and why they exist and who sank Atlantis,” Johns says. “There’s all this mythology behind Atlantis that were not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we’re about to get the answers.”

Reis and Prado are working on designing Atlantis and the Atlanteans, and they’ve also created a new look for Ocean Master, the old Aquaman villain who’s also the hero’s brother and the leader of the Atlanteans’ world-spanning assault.

“Ocean Master’s an interesting character,” Johns says. “He doesn’t dislike his brother — he just thinks his brother is incapable of leading Atlantis and he’s proven over and over he can’t. He thinks his brother’s a little naïve on how it works.

“And if he’s in his way, he’s in his way.”
