InvestComics Wonder Woman Checklist – All Ebay Sellers – Buy/Bid – Click Image

DC Comics will begin two new storylines this Wednesday. Flash #25 ‘Running Scared’, written by Joshua Williamson and art by Carmine Di Giandomenico. This issue will give you more bang for the buck, it’s ‘extra sized’. Suicide Squad #20 begins the ‘False Flag’ story. Written by Rob Williams and art by Stjepan Sejic.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
DC’s Wonder Woman #25 extra sized issue focuses on every storyline since the Wonder Woman Rebirth era. That’s four major stories and maybe a few more sprinkled in. Writer Greg Rucka brings all of this together in one issue. Greg has been killing it on these pages of Wonder Woman, he will kill it here in this extra sized issue as well. Art from Liam Sharp and Bilquis Evely.
Out of all of the DC/Looney Tunes crossover comics from recent weeks, Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 seems to be the most interesting. The ultimate hunter hunts the ultimate darkness of night. This special is written by Tom King (no stranger to Batman!) and art by Byron Vaughns.

The ever so popular Venom character picks it up a notch in a new summer event starting in Edge of Venomverse #1. This series of books will create a bit of a frenzy as the next big breakout mash-up character will probably emerge. Who will it be? Will it be Venom Gwenpool, Venom Ghost Rider, Venom X-23, Venom Rocket Raccoon, Venom Doctor Strange, Venom Cap, Venom Deadpool, and the list goes on. So the best advice we offer here is to buy anything regarding the Venomverse so you don’t miss that boat on any mash-up that may breakout. First and foremost you’ll be getting a Venom story delivered by excellent writer Cullen Bunn, so it’s a win right there even if a character never does breakout into a spin-off or create a ridiculous speculative aftermarket surge.
Readers will learn more about the character named Malarus in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #16. The first time we saw Malarus was back in Star Wars: Poe Dameron #13.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
And speaking of Star Wars, if you like stories with very little dialog, then maybe Star Wars Droids Unplugged #1 will be for you. The comic drives on the concept of following three Droids and their adventures; R2D2, BB-8 and the Probe Droids. So with that synopsis, we assume there won’t be much story dialog getting driven here. Safe to assume this, no? They’re Droids! On the contrary though, back in 1986, Marvel went this route with Star Wars: Droids #1 from their Star Comics imprint. However, lots of dialog in this eight-part series. C3PO led the way with his talkative self, hence lots of dialog. He never shuts up! One of the true highlights of the first five issues has to be the legendary John Romita Sr. penciling all five covers and did the interior for the first four issues. That in itself is a reason to have this series in your collection.
The amazing writing skills of Greg Pak continues as his mash-up will come to life sooner or later; Hulk/Wolverine….or whatever they call ‘it’. Check out Totally Awesome Hulk #20 for part two of Weapons of Mutant Destruction. We really cannot wait for the title ‘Totally Awesome..’ to go away. It’s so silly and juvenile. It’ll happen, just need Marvel to realize how silly it really is and that will happen eventually. We guarantee it.

Spawn fans get a double dose of their favorite demon torn hero this Wednesday. Spawn #1 Encore Edition features lots of goodies from the original Spawn #1 issue 25 years ago. It’ll have art boards, McFarlane commentary and Image promises some surprises as well. Todd McFarlane’s cover is a direct homage to Joe Quesada’s Ultimate Spider-Man #1 (2000). We love it. Also, Spawn #275 sees the return of Sam and Twitch. They first appeared in Spawn #1.

Valiant Entertainment is about to release their latest comic to rave reviews. The comic is Secret Weapon #1 and it will sell out, thus leading to a second print by next week. The stories leading player is Livewire. She was first introduced into the Valiant Universe in 1993’s Harbinger #14. Livewire then was reintroduced into the NEW Valiant Universe in 2012’s Harbinger #3. We’ve said this before (lots of times before….lots), if you really want to READ a comic book and get 100% viable substance from a well told story(s), Valiant Entertainment is the way to go. We cannot stress this enough. Secret Weapon #1 is going to get comic fans talking, best be on it so you’re in the know and not the what.
Look for another sell out/hit from Black Mask Comics. Beautiful Canvas #1, written by Ryan Lindsay and art by Sami Kivela.
Two new comics to check out from Scout Comics this week. Tinkers of the Wasteland #1, writer/art by Raul Trevino. Scout Comics releases a second issue never released before with a hit number one comic, together. Super cool to read Necromantical Ultimate Collection 1 with that second issue this Wednesday.

Keenspot’s Softball #1 follows a YouTube series pulling in over 100 million views. That’s a whole lot of views! Writer/art Bill Blankenship.
Alterna Comics continue their torrid pace within the industry with the reintroduction of the ‘old comic print’ comics. This week they continue that onslaught with Scrimshaw #1. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this new (old) comic format, we suggest you do. It’s nostalgic to the older crowd and the newer crowds get to see how cool it was to read a comic book the ‘old’ way. The material inside the pages of all the Alterna Comics releases within this new format has been on point too, so you’ll be purchasing a good story/art as well. What else does a comic fan need? Scrimshaw #1; written by Eric Borden and art by Dave Mims.

The new Dr. Strange movie will be hitting in July of 2016. That’s not too far off believe it or not. Dr. Strange will be all kinds of awesome when it hits. A new era of Marvel Studios magic will be spectacularly accepted by moviegoers. It’s going to be the first movie in which Marvel can display its CGI full tilt. Not saying they didn’t use CGI a lot in their other films, but we’re talking the mystics here! Yes Awesomeness will ensue, be prepared.

Dr. Strange will be a huge hit. Some of his key back issues have already exploded and we’re here to make sure you’re on point to join the frenzy.

Strange Tales #110 (1963) The first appearance of Stephen Strange (Doctor Strange). Written by Stan Lee and art by Steve Ditko. Buy this comic, own it. A Jack Kirby cover, but does not feature the Doctor on the cover. Also the first appearance of Wong, and Ancient One.

Strange Tales #115 (1963) Origin issue and first appearance of Eye of Agamotto. Also the second appearance of Sandman.

Fantastic Four #27 (1964) The first cover Dr. Strange appears on. Jack ‘King’ Kirby art and cover.

Journey Into Mystery with Thor #108 (1964) First appearance with Wasp, Hank Pym, Iron Man, and Jane Foster. Also the first appearance of Beetle.

Strange Tales #126 (1964) InvestComics recommended this comic a few years ago; the first appearance of Dormammu. We were ahead of the curve (as we usually are) in the sense we were foreshadowing to buy this book if a Doctor Strange movie ever gets made. Dormammu will probably be the nemesis in the Strange film. Also the first appearance of Clea which is also a good speculative thought to appear in the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 (1964) The first appearance with Spider-Man. Also with the Fantastic Four and a host of others. All art by Steve Ditko. First appearance of Sinister Six.

*****PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER BELOW Article*****

 

Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market, but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

 

Click the RED links or comic cover to buy/bid on the books in this article.

 

Machine Man #1 (1984) This amazing 4 issue limited series was brought to us by the late great Herb Trimpe. Barry Windsor Smith handled all four of the “transformation” covers. Overall great comic.

Mephisto Vs. … #1 (1987) Mephisto wanted to fight everyone apparently back in the 80’s. So much so he got his own limited series. Each issue featured a different opponent. The battles included; Fantastic Four, X-Men, X-Factor and the Avengers. Al Milgrom writes. John Buscema art.

Akira #1 (1988) Akira was the first major manga series to ever hit at Marvel. 38 issues in all. Amazing storytelling and art in these comics. Writer Mary Jo Duffy lead the way here. Last 2 issues in this series (1996) had Contributors Dave Gibbons, Mark Texeira, Larry Hama, John Romita Sr., Joe Mad and Warren Ellis. Near mint copies of Akira books will run a little bit in the wallet, but well worth it.

Shatter #1 Special Edition (1985) The first all computer generated (Mac) digital print comic ever by First Comics (how appropriately named). Mike Saenz had all hands on deck with this “Mac” experiment. Art/inks/colors/letter/cover. When this comic came out, it was hot. Nowadays, well that’s a different story. One can purchase this comic for less than $2 on Ebay. Go ahead, click the link or comic, buy it, you’ll own a part of pop culture history.

Iron Man Crash (1988) Here we have the first all digital (Mac) graphic novel. This time from Marvel. Mike Saenz again had his hands all over the digital first, this time with William Bates lending a hand.

Batman Digital Justice (1990) As usual it seems, DC Comics took their time coming around. Joining the digital era 5 years after the first computer generated comic. DC went big though. 116 pages of computer generated mac art featuring Digital Batman. Batman in the digital world was the grandson of Commissioner Gordon. First and last appearance of Digital Batman.

Avengers #239 (1984) David Letterman’s 33 year run ended last night. What a run it has been. On a personal note; I still own recorded VHS tapes in my storage of this show back when I was going to school. I knew I couldn’t stay up that late so I set the VCR to record the show so I could watch it when I got home. What is a VHS tape and VCR? Google it. David Letterman’s first of many appearances in comic books happened right here. Written by Roger Stern, art by Al Milgrom. Cover collaboration by Milgrom and Joe Sinnott. A keeper for any David Letterman fan. So long Dave and thanks for making me laugh!

For many years on this site, InvestComics has spoken about Marvel’s White Knight. Now he gets the Spotlight treatment. This checklist is the most extensive Moon Knight checklist on the internet. What you will find are many first appearances, key books, creator books, covers, etc. It’s absolutely a bookmark spot on your pc/phone.

So why Moon Knight? As said before, for many years InvestComics has spoken highly of this character and waiting for the moment that he breaks loose. InvestComics feels now is the time to give Moon Knight his due on the site and dedicate an entire article/checklist on him. We feel that MK is as close to breaking out as he’s ever been. A television announcement? A major motion picture announcement? Either way, it will be fantastic news for collectors and readers that follow Moon Knight.

A complex character that rivals DC’s Batman; hence “the White Knight”. Imagine if and possibly when Marvel Studios decides to go very dark, go in the direction of the Batman lure. They have their character right here. They have the history since 1975. The story is all there, the darkness, the emotion, the violence, the struggle. Let’s understand one thing here though. While the comparison is being made, he is not Batman. He never will be, so fanboys please relax. Batman is its own entity, we get that. What InvestComics is saying is Moon Knight possesses the dark ambiance as a character, just like Batman. And it would be amazing to see Marvel Studios take on a “Batman” like character. The grittiness of Moon Knight, that is like the Batman lure into moving pictures somehow. Be it T.V. or the big screen. It is time to get the Moon Knight character out there.

Too bad Stephen wasn’t enough at the time to save this series from its demise a short time later. The first published work of Stephen Platt.

Avengers #501 (2004) Here is that “second artist” being referred to from earlier. David Finch first draws Moon Knight in this comic. He, like Platt will be looked at as the “go-to” when and if the Moon Knight makes it to television or the movies. Their art/style will be the foundation to which the character is based on. David Finch returns on this list again…..

Marvel Team-Up #3 (2005) Robert Kirkman, yes that one, writes a story here that includes Moon Knight in it (as filler). The headliner here is Dr. Strange. Kirkman writes a Dr. Strange story. Yep it happened. Let’s get back to Moon Knight……

Marvel Team-Up #7 (2005) In here, Robert Kirkman writes a Spider-Man/Moon Knight story.

Moon Knight #1 (2006) Artist David Finch begins the new series. That cover. Wow.

Incredible Hulk #180 – First Wolverine PAGE Appearance Ever Up For Auction

Many comic book collectors know that Wolverine’s first appearance is in The Incredible Hulk #181. Then on the other hand, many TRUE collectors know that Wolverine first appeared in the issue prior and not in #181. Why issue #181 commands the money it does and not issue #180 is a debate for another day…….

So now issue #180 will finally get the respect it so deservedly ask for. The original page that features the FIRST ever Wolverine appearance will be up for auction to raise money for Hero Initiative. The page was drawn by Herb Trimpe, written by Len Wein with inks by Jack Abel.

This will be huge and maybe just maybe this will help bump up The Incredible Hulk #180 a bit too!

Teen Titans #44 (1)Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

…….15 days to get to 2000 Likes on Facebook. Getting to 2000 Likes means that if you share any InvestComics social media you become eligible to win a signed George Perez Tales of the Teen Titans #44, which just happens to be the first appearance of Nightwing. January 20th is the cutoff date, let’s get there!

There are certain characters within the realm of the comic book world that simply do not have the guns to hold their own monthly series. These characters are fantastic supporting heroes/villains, but simply lack that certain something to appeal to the masses. Ghost Rider, Vision, Namor, Supergirl, just to name few. Let me reiterate, these characters are awesome, they have found some success in their own way, but have either been short lived or became a flavor of the month type deal (See Aquaman). Do they deserve a better fate? Sometimes yes, and sometimes not. If you are a regular reader around here you will know that this speculator is still very high on one of these “b/c rate” characters; Moon Knight. With the influx of the movie and television comic lure, it’s very easy to say that any of the background music characters can breakout at any time (see Vibe). Moon Knight in my opinion will breakout eventually, so watch him. Been saying it for years and I warned you on Deathstroke years ago as well. So pay attention here.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 1/8/13

[scrollGallery id=329]

The same certainty cannot be said for this week’s new flavor; Black Widow. Although our Russian bombshell will debut with her own solo series this week; Black Widow (2014) #1 I will point out one certainty that will make a speculator cringe a bit. The Black Widow has starred in over 14 self-titled projects, either by way of limited series or solo series. This is of course not counting the dozens of team-ups she’s been involved in. So what does this tell us? Exactly what I explained a couple of minutes ago. BW lacks something to have her own thing on-going. Great limited series character, great teammate, but not a solo artist. She needs a band and she needs to be the backup singer. The movie appearances have spiked her first appearance a bit, and interest in the character, but not enough to warrant a solo series. Will the series do well at first? Yes it will. It will come out like gangbusters, but will succumb to mediocrity. It happens all the time with these types of characters. Even my breakout character pick Moon Knight. The difference however is that Black Widow will not eventually have her own film and compete with DC’s Dark Knight. Moon Knight will do just that, BW will not. Yes that’s right, been saying this for years and years, Moon Knight will be Marvel’s answer to Batman on the big screen. You’ll see. Anyway back to Black Widow. As stated before, the series will be a hot one out of the gate. There is no denying it. With writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Phil Noto at the helm, it will be a hot book. That’s also not discounting the variants accompanying the debut issue. The prize variant goes to the amazing Scott J. Campbell. You can get the variant and flip this graded bad boy for a few bucks in your pocket. Please do so quickly. The series will not sustain its interest long enough with speculators to shell out big bucks for this variant. BW’s first solo comic came out back in 1990’s graphic novel: Black Widow: The Coldest War. Her first appearance came in Tales of Suspense #52 (1964). The TOS comic will always be the one to have. You simply cannot go wrong with names like Lee, Kirby, and Heck attached to a first appearance.

In the midst of all the hoopla surrounding the “ALL-NEW NOW” absurdity there will be a nice little nugget hidden away in A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #16. This comic debuts the writing talents of Jeff Loveness. Jeff is the writer of the highly successful late night Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show. Does this mean anything in the grand scheme of things? Not really. What if though Jeff hits the right chord with fans? Well, this will be where it all started for him in the comic book world!

Now back to the “ALL NEW NOW!” ridiculousness. I will refrain from making this a long dissertation, but ALL NEW NOW!? This is the equivalent of having DC Comics pull an ALL NEW 52! Absurd. What happens when Marvel decides they need to change things up again? ALL NEW NEW NOW!? Anyway…..

All New Marvel Now Point One (2013) #1 features many of our beloved Marvel heroes/villains in a new way. Is this really necessary? Don’t matter, sales from the sold out Steve McNiven variant states differently from my thoughts here. All New X-Factor (2014) #1 has sold out across the board. Every variant is completely gone. The All New X-Factor will be a successful book, not only because it’s X-Factor, because Mr. X-Factor writer himself Peter David will be on board. This isn’t the first time Peter David has done an All New X-Factor comic. Back in 1991 he revamped the team in issue number 71; the caption on top reads “The All New….” Not only is this comic the first TRUE All New X-Factor, but it’s also the team that will probably appear in the movie. X-Factor #71 will be the go to book in the long run. The variants coming this Wednesday are great flip books to stock pile on the 1991 issue. The first appearance of X-Factor comes from this series in 1986.

Avengers World (2013) #1 is also a sold out comic this week. Look for the Arthur Adams’ variants to maximize you dollars on this one.

Cataclysm Ultimates Last Stand (2013) #3 will feature a death. Keep your eyes peeled for any surprises. It can be one of those books you see on the local news. Doubt it, but you never know.

The most interesting comic this week has to be Marvel’s Revolutionary War Alpha (2014) #1. It’s the first time in a long time that many UK Marvel heroes will be banding together to fight a threat. Captain Britain would make a spectacular hero on the movie screen wouldn’t he? Maybe Marvel/Disney will someday explore the possible international heroes they have at their disposal one day on film (now watch how many articles come out regarding a wish list of Marvel/Disney international movies. InvestComics leads I tell ya!). So with the ultra-cool Revolutionary War Alpha (2014) #1 coming out this week, it’s always fun to take a look at who is on the team and where they debuted. Below is a quick list and gallery showing who will appear in the comic and their first appearance. From the speculator side, I would without a shadow of a doubt pick these comics up. From a pure gut here, I think Marvel/Disney may be testing the waters with interest to the International scene. Will it deem worthy that they pursue a Captain Britain movie? Who knows?  Happy hunting though!

[scrollGallery id=328]

Captain Britain – First appeared in Captain Britain #1 (1976). Writer Chris Claremont and artist Herb Trimpe! A newspaper print comic cover to cover. Hard to find in Near Mint shape. The Marvel Team-Up with Spider-Man is also dubbed the first appearance of the UK Cap.

Death’s Head – Some controversy surrounds the first appearance here, but many say that the Transformers (UK) #117 from 1987 is the first appearance of DH.

Pete Wisdom – Debuted in Excalibur #86 (1995). Writer Warren Ellis, nuff said.

Motormouth and Killpower – Both debuted in Motormouth #1 (1992). Art by Gary Frank.

Warheads – This team has 10 members in it. All 10 first appeared in this comic. Some died (which means nothing these days really). So the debut of all of these dudes and an appearance from Wolverine. Nice huh?

Get your hands on the Revolutionary War Alpha #1 incentive variant, get some creator signatures (witnessed of course), grade it and sit on in for a while. It could be more valuable later on down the line when Marvel/Disney decide on to crossing international lines.

So what about DC Comics this week? Lots of Marvel Comics talk! Batman Superman (2013 DC) #7 leads the way with a cool sideways issue. Yes this is not a ground breaking gimmick at all, but still very cool nonetheless. InvestComics covered the sideways comic issue in the IC Hot Picks #293 article when DC decided to do the sideways thing with Batman Superman #5. Nothing like killing a unique thing now is there? Fantastic Four was the first major comic to be published in this format. Fantastic Four #252 (1983) is still the mecca of all sideway comics. The X-Factor sideway comic was pretty neat too.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #27 is an extra mega-sized anniversary issue with a who’s who guest list of creators. Check out the debut of a new storyline “Gothtopia” and a retelling (for the umpteenth time) of Batman’s origin from two heavy weights Brad Meltzer and Bryan Hitch. All this for a hefty $7.99….ouch.

Vampire Diaries (2013) #1 photo variant is sold out. Get the stars of the show to sign this cover and grade it. That’s a nice sale to a Vampire Diaries fan!

Check out the rest of the new comics coming your way this week. All nearing sell outs or sold out at the distributor already. Fracture (2013) Volume 2 #1 from Action Lab Entertainment. Kudos to Action, they have been doing very well with their sell outs. Lil Vampi (2014) #1 (Dynamite Entertainment), B.A.R. Maid (2013 Zenescope) #1, Cavewoman Labyrinth (2013) #0 (Amryl Entertainment), and Minimum Wage (2013 Image) #1.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 7-17-13

THE mecca of all comic pricing, the Overstreet comic book price guide hits this week. It’s the single most recognized source (besides the internet) comic book guide of its kind. One can find out virtually any information they need about a specific comic in there. Although the pricing of the comics were always on the “lower end”, it’s a fantastic reference book. So pick up your Overstreet Price Guide (1970- ) #43 this week with your choice of either the hardcover (Mike Deodato Jr cover) or the softcover (Andy Kubert cover) and go through it with the magnifying glass as I did as a young boy. You will be amazed at some of the references that you were never aware of. A collectors dream all in one place……

InvestComics HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=279]

Most/sometimes in the aftermarket when it comes to the big 2, many collectors are caught by surprise on a hot book. Not such the case in the Todd McFarlane/Erik Larsen Spidey days and thereafter. Todd had Venom, Erik had Cletus Kasady, and Mark Bagley had Carnage. Amazing Spider-Man #361 (first appearance of Carnage) at one time was a very hot sought after comic. Nowadays, it’s still a book that collectors clamor for, but the pricing has come down significantly. So with the recent success of “Superior” Spider-Man, readers will now see Superior Carnage (2013) #1 this week. Remember when the “Noir” titles were a hot thing? Readers were bombarded with Noir titles up the ying yang. Well maybe we’re headed down the same path here? Superior Deadpool, Superior Daredevil? Ugh, we hope not. The success of Superior Spider-Man will water down its uniqueness if the word “Superior” supersedes every title. But with all of the Debbie downer stuff out of the way, Superior Carnage #1 does in fact look like a fun ride. Be sure to check it out this week.

Red Sonja has made her presence known in the comic book world quite often, countless number one issues from Dynamite Entertainment as well as countless appearances within the Marvel Universe. This week however from Dynamite Entertainment will release Red Sonja (2013 Dynamite) #1 and this one is one to watch out for. It’s not like others that have come before. This number one issue brings the awesome creative talents of writer Gail Simone to the table. Yes, this will be good. Yes, you should pick it up. Brianna gives a 7/10 rating in her reviews (appearing tomorrow). And just in case the Red Sonja decides to breathe a second life, be sure to have Conan the Barbarian #23 (1973 – first appearance) in your stash. This comic is already a collector’s item anyway.

Avengers (2012 5th Series) #16 asks the question “What ever happened to Starbrand and Nightmask?” Guess we will find out right?! What we do know is that these two individuals originally appeared in their own titles under the New Universe umbrella before being rebranded into the Marvel Universe today. Both Nightmask #1 and Starbrand #1 from 1986 can be found at your local comic shops bathroom magazine rack or the giveaway boxes. Not saying they are bad stories or bad comics, just saying they are very accessible.

IDW will bring back a comic from extinction – Dinosaurs Attack (2013 IDW) #1. Dinosaurs Attacks originally appeared as an Eclipse comic graphic novel from 1991. The best part of the IDW release is that they bring back the same creative team that brought us the 1991 story. Herb Trimpe, Gary Gerani, and Earl Norem.

Green Lantern New Guardians (2011) #22 introduces the beginnings of Lantern’s next major foe. It’s always a great thing to get on the ground floor with a new storyline. Fans of the 1966 Batman show will have some fun this Wednesday with Batman 66 (2013 DC) #1. For the first time ever, DC covers the campy show in comic book form. BAM-POW-ZANG! Fun times ahead!

Here are a few independent comics to get onto your radar this week. A new take on the Watson & Holmes story – Watson and Holmes (2013 New Paradigm) #1, this looks very promising. Numbercruncher (2013 Titan) #1 also looks very interesting, Dark Horse offers up two new number ones to check out; Strain The Fall (2013 Dark Horse) #1 and Blood Brothers (2013 Dark Horse) #1. And BOOM! Studios gives us Day Men (2013 Boom) #1.

That’s it for this week. Sign up for the InvestComics newsletter below or on the front page of the website.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 1-18-12

Welcome to InvestComics Hot Picks 1-18-12 

Jumping right into this week’s books, Uncanny X-Force #20 begins a 4 part saga “The Trail of Fantomex”. The first part features guest Captain Britain. The character was first introduced in the UK (naturally right?) in 1976. Captain Britain #1 debuted with writer Chris Claremont and artist Herb Trimpe. A beautiful creative combo here to say the least. You would be hard pressed to find this newspaper weekly in Near Mint condition, but that shouldn’t deter you from owning the first appearance of Britain’s “Captain America”. A mere $30 could get you ownership of this book. Not bad at all considering the possible upside to the character. Upside pertaining to all of the re-launch possibilities, the movie possibilities, and the fact that Marvel hasn’t really had a breakout overseas of a “non-American” character in a while. Why else would Marvel throw out Captain Britain if they weren’t seeing what the potential market value is on him? If the demand is there, we may see more CB, if not, maybe Marvel is planning on putting forth the initial steps to try and break him out…. (again). Excalibur anyone? Cap’s first U.S. appearance came along in Marvel Team-Up #65 (1977). This comic (a reprint from the UK, redone) could be found in the 1 dollar long boxes at your local comic shop or Convention.

The British run on CB has one very interesting issue if you’re not aware of it. Captain Britain #8 features the first appearance Betsy Braddock. Who’s Betsy? Well if you’re an X-Man fan, (or a comic fan) you’d know that Betsy is also Pyslocke. This issue is the bigger prize (monetarily) within the CB run at $50, although the better value probably may lie in the number one issue. Maybe the British invasion will happen one day in the Marvel Universe, if it does it’ll start with Captain Britain.  

Staying with Marvel for a couple of more books here, Uncanny X-Men #5 introduces readers to a NEW Marvel universe, and that’s always a lot fun! The new abode is called Tabula Rasa. (And by the way, Tabula Rasa is not a fictionally made up “word, place, thing” in case you’re wondering. If you want to impress some of your friends click HERE to get the meaning and win prizes by betting with them! Thank us later!). The thing about new universes within a comic book company and or story opens up a broader possibly of bringing in new characters, new villains, etc. That said however, it usually does not equate to a collector’s item. Case in point Planet Hulk, Greg Pak did a divine job introducing an entire new universe with not much fanfare afterward, but he did open that proverbial door.

The last Marvel comic this week to cover is Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #6. This one introduces the NEW Ultimate Scorpion (for the second or third time, but who’s counting?). 

DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes #5 brings a Legend on board for a single issue. Artist Walt Simonson graces us all with his amazing style. If you’re in the mood to have some fun you can look for Legion of Super-Heroes #94 from 1997, that’s the first Simonson Legion. He penciled 2 issues. Issue number 94 and 100. Yes they were both collaborating efforts, but a Legion book nonetheless.

Supergirl deals with a villain named Maxima in her 5th issue. Find Maxima’s first appearance in Action Comics #645 (1989) from another legend George Perez. 

…..On the topic of George Perez and legends. George will be appearing alongside Paul Levitz and Alex Saviuk in a Hero’s Initiative event at Tate’s Comics in Lauderhill Florida. InvestComics will go down and bring back some footage for you. Be sure to check that out. Questions for the legends anyone? Don’t be shy….

For more details on this big event, visit Tate’s Comic shop right HERE

Below are the covers of the week! 12 in all, wow pictures!

 

See you next week.

Invest wisely.
