Happy New Year everyone. We hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. We also wish you all a prosperous 2017.
InvestComics took its first ever holiday break in 13 years. A much needed and deserved break. We’re so happy to get back into the flow of things. Our batteries are recharged and we’re ready to go another 13 years without a holiday break. Well, maybe not that long, but we’re recharged and ready to go.
We’re first going to touch on a few comics from last week, then we’re going to give you the Hot Picks from this week. We actually had this Hot Picks semi-put together, but did not hit the publish button, vacation was calling, so we’re going to give you exactly what we wrote about last week before new comic book day…….and vacation.
A very short list ahead for last week and this week, but we’re quite sure it’ll get moving as the weeks progress. No guarantee of course, but we always want to provide the best comics recommendations for our fans.

Buy/Bid Now – Supergirl #1

A new Supergirl book from writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Joelle Jones; Supergirl Being Super #1. Looks like it’ll be sort of a Supergirl Year One book.
The last time Harley Quinn appeared in a Scooby-Doo comic book, the collectors market turned on their proverbial head as other sites made the comic out to be the rarest comic on mother earth. As those sites marveled over a Harley Quinn appearance in a cartoon dog comic, some of the aftermarket sellers made a killing on the book. We feel bad for all of those buyers being completely mislead. We wouldn’t hype a book just because it has the 2,328th appearance (exaggerating of course) of Harley Quinn in a cartoon dog comic that will be found in some dollar bin some day. So what it’s a short print run. Seriously, any real speculator would recognize it was and still is a huge waste of time. You made money on it, good for you, but a warning to collectors that may not know better, don’t succumb to the hype ridiculousness of an appearance in a book that is completely meaningless and pay top dollar for it. We all love the Harley character, but lets all keep ourselves in check with her appearance this week in Scooby-Doo Team-Up #21.

Jennifer Walters tries once again to carry her own series. This time however it’s a bit different. No more will the word ‘SHE’ be used in a She-Hulk series. No more will there be the word ‘Savage’. All of that will be bye-bye. The new Jennifer Walters comic title is Hulk. Hulk #1 debuts with writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Nico Leon at the helm, with a bazillion variant covers to choose from.
Marvel brings the character Chthon back to the forefront in Carnage #15. Chthon has appeared sporadically in his long history. Marvel going into their horror comics archives and pulling out a character from 1975, it’s a safe bet we’ll see more of this down the pike. Chthon first appeared in Marvel Chillers #1 (1975).
Fans love Rocket Raccoon and the Guardians of The Galaxy movie he appeared in. After the rodent appeared in the movie, Marvel inundated comic fans with Rocket Raccoon appearances everywhere. Very annoying after a while, but now Marvel is finally giving Rocket his own book. Rocket Raccoon #1 will be written by Matthew Rosenberg and art from Jorge Coelho. The Rafael Albuquerque homage cover to Bill Sienkiewicz’s Elektra Assassin #1 (1986) cover is our fave.
Looks like Marvel is trying to get readers right in the ‘feels’ with the latest Spider-Man #11 comic. Learn about the untold story of Miles Morales’ father.

Dark Horse gives AvP fans a new series to read. Check out Aliens vs Predator Life and Death #1.

Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.

If you’re a fan of the sometimes confusing DC Multiplicity universe, then there is a book for you this week. Superman #14 begins a new story dealing with all of the Supermen within the multi-earth universe. It’s like a who’s who of the Superman universe, but not.
A new Harley storyline begins in Harley Quinn #11, ‘Joker Loves Harley’.
And speaking of Harley, she graces most of the covers from this week’s Justice League vs Suicide Squad #3 issue. A good hearty comic book read and great covers to boot.

Marvel’s premise of mashing Deadpool with Howard the Duck sounds so out there and outrageous that it’ll probably catch on and become a mega hit. Deadpool The Duck #1 hit this Wednesday with plenty of variants for the fans to choose from. We’re fans of the Ron Lim variant. As a reminder here, if you’re not already in the know, Deadpool the Duck first appeared in Deadpool Kills Deadpool #3 (2013).
Moon Knight #10 promises to change things as far as the character is concerned. And that Whilce Portacio variant cover….wow.
Slapstick is back with Slapstick #2. This issue will focus a bit on the Bro-Man. He first appeared in the inaugural issue. We like Slapstick and so should you.
Marvel has officially entered the ridiculousness zone (again) with their U.S. Avengers #1 50 state variant covers gimmick. Psst Marvel…..psst…..no one cares about this, stop it. Fans are looking for a few variants and a good story, stop it.

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).

Ms. Marvel #1

Buy Now

IC 100 Club Pick: Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) 8.0. When Marvel Studios hits theaters with their first female lead comic book movie, it’s going to be huge. It will make movie goers and comic fans forget about the Wonder Woman flick very, very fast. How can we say this? Well first and foremost, it’s an opinion. Secondly, Warner Bros. has not yet had an answer for any of the Marvel movies as far as the “level” goes. Will the Wonder Woman movie be good? Probably, but Marvel will out-do DC with their female lead movie Ms. Marvel. It will be set in modern day and appeal radically to the younger and older female audiences as Disney KNOWS how to do. It will happen. Disney KNOWS marketing. So with that confidence stated, this week’s IC 100 Club Pick is Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) graded at a low 8.0 and the low price of $79.99. This low grade will not matter once the movie hits and the popularity of Ms. Marvel is at its peak. This movie will be huge. This first appearance of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel will be untouchable.

As Warner Bros. is a bit late to the superhero movie party, DC is a bit late on the variant cover theme too. Justice League Of America #9 has a Batman v Superman Dawn Of Justice Cover. Who cares right? Well not only is the cover bad as*, it’s drawn by (insert sarcasm) some artist named Jim Lee. $3.99 cover price. We’ll take one please.

The “new” female comic character is still a hot commodity. Mostly hot for a minute, then cools off, but then there are ones that catch on. Will the first appearance of the female Electro in Amazing Spider-Man #17 be a hot ticket? We’ll have to wait and see for about a minute…..or maybe longer.
Marvel will go to the well once again regarding their success with Gwenpool and Spider-Gwen. In All-New Wolverine Annual #1 we’ll see Wolvergwen and Spiderine. Newer mash-up’s here but this time with the all-new Wolverine character. Although the Wolvergwen character looks like a first appearance, a “Gwenverine” character popped up on a variant cover back in August of 2015. Old Man Logan #2 gets the dubious distinction of being that first appearance issue. Seems to be much like the first appearance of Gwenpool, cover only. So is Gwenverine and Wolergwen the same character? We don’t make this stuff up, we just report it. 
We’re loving the cover to Silver Surfer #6. It’s the 200th overall issue of Surfer comic book issues. The cover shows many awesome past Silver Surfer comic books surrounding him. It’s neat.

Dark Horse Comics offers fans two number one comics written by two fan fav’s of the industry this week. Witchfinder City Of The Dead #1 will be written by Mike Mignola and World Of Tanks #1 will be written by Garth Ennis. World Of Tanks #1 will be based on a game that has an audience of 110 million players. That’s a whole lot of possible built-in audience to reach! Two debut Dark Horse Comics to pick up. That’s some nice debut reading material here.
IDW Publishing’s Jill Thompsons Killer Inside Me #1 is sold out. A lot of buzz surrounding this book. Look for a possible bounce in the aftermarket as readers latch on to this classic story put into comic book form. They’ll be delighted and the bounce may happen.
It looks as though IDW has an answer to DC’s All-Star Batman. It’s called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #1. Various A-list creators will contribute to this new on-going TMNT series. Look for possible introductions in this first issue and as the series progresses. This first issue features a back-up story from Kevin Eastman and Bill Sienkiewicz. Now that’s some serious duo firepower. Count us in on this series and especially this first issue.
Spawn #265 will introduce a new character and will also have Ant make an appearance. Ant was introduced in Ant #1 (2012) from Arcana Studio. HER last known appearance of Ant was in Savage Dragon #180 (2012). Will Erik Larsen bring back Ant for good? Hopefully we see more. We’ll wait and see.

Comic Broker Report – February 2013

The Comic Book Broker’s Report ( February )

By Topher Seal

     I just cannot believe the online market for current comics.  People are throwing down some serious cash during poor economic times for unproven, highly speculative books.  Now I won’t recommend that you go and spend nearly 200 dollars for Peter Panzerfaust 1 or Saga 1 or any Thought Bubble or Hastings Variant but I do suggest you think about the future and put your money in wise investments.  Just because a comic property has been optioned by Hollywood or has a print run under 5k doesn’t mean it belongs in your fireproof long box.  A wise investor studies the market relentlessly and can recognize a bad deal when he/she sees one.  

Don’t Buy: Thor 344, buy this instead:

Thor 347  ( First appearance of Kurse )

images

Kurse will be in the next Thor movie and while collectors are already hoarding 344 this issue might be the sleeper.

Note: Kurse also has one of the greatest deaths in comics and that issue is very affordable!

Don’t Buy Justice League of America 183-185,

1

buy this instead:

The Forever People 1 ( First full Darkseid )

i2

So a JLA movie will be coming out to set up the future of the DC Universe’s film franchises and there is already massive speculation as to who will be in the film and what storyline it will follow.  Many are buying up issues 183-185 assuming that elements of this story will be the basis for the film.  That’s too risky to drop the kind of money these books are demanding.  Plus the moment that info was released Darkseid became the new Thanos and appearances have quadrupled in price.  Guides list Darkseid’s first appearance as Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen 134 and his second as 135 but both appear to be cameos.  His first full appearance is in The Forever People 1 and I would also scoop New Gods 2.

Don’t buy The Sixth Gun 1,2,3,4,5,6,……

Buy this instead:

The Sixth Gun FCBD 2011

onise_45

This wonderful comic by Cullen Bunn has been optioned and is set to film for TV.  Here is an example of a property worth investing in.  If it’s done right it’s a sure hit.  Cullen Bunn is a superstar writer in the making and this is his best work to date.  Issue 1 is fast becoming a 50.00 book but eventually people will realize that the first appearance of The Sixth Gun was in the 2011 FCBD issue.

More Cullen Bunn,

Immortal Weapons 2

imawges

Early works by this amazing writer are sure to see significant gains in upcoming months.  This comic is part of a 5 issues limited series written by a variety of the industries best.  Mr. Bunn wrote issue 2.

Deadpool 1000, The Damned ( good luck finding these! ), Captain America 616 Variant and his first published comic work in…

Futurequake 4

Future Quake 4 Cullen Bunn First Pro Work

Buy:

American Vampire 1 ( 2010 Diamond Retailer’s Summit Edition, cover by JIM LEE )

Scott Snyder has quickly become the hottest writer in comics. His resume may be short but it’s full of quality writing.  In an era full of talented writers it can be very difficult to stand out but Mr. Snyder has done it.  Collectors are flocking to his Detective Comics run and they should but there are few other comics he wrote worth picking up.  Iron man noir 1-4 is a good place to start and those books can be had for pennies. I have previously mentioned the Human Torch 70th Variant One-Shot ( his earliest pro work ) and now this issue variant with a Jim Lee cover!

I would also buy issues 2-5 and the 2nd print for issue 1

Buy: Iron Man 10 ( 2nd Print )

InvincibleIronMan_10_SecondPrintingCover

Another film rumor about the appearance of Pepper Potts Rescue Armor appearing in Iron Man 3 has been circulating the web.  Will it happen? If it does this is the one one to buy!

Buy: Masters of the Universe 1 ( 2nd Print )

images

Another great second print that’s tough to find and worth every penny!  Look in back to find out why Invincible collectors!

Sell: Peter Panzerfaust 1,2,3,4

This over hyped comic is well written but poorly illustrated. With a TV show from the BBC in the works Image has created a nice big bubble! Trust me when I say it’s not the next WD so sell high!

Hold: Green Wake 7

ww

The true first appearance of Peter Panzerfaust  will have no ceiling if the show is a hit and it will cost you between 2-10 dollars instead of 200.

Sell: Revival 1 and all issue 1 variants

Hold: Image FCBD Sampler

1173347

Sell: Fatale issue 1

Buy: The Walking Dead 92 ( First Jesus )

iemages

It seems this new character is going to be a major player and we have all seen the value of key WD first appearances.  Oh and Fatale first appearance is here too.  Even if you have to pay out it’s worth it in this case.

Buy:  Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth, Nowhere Men 1, Non-Player, Multiple Warheads & Prophet 21 ( variant only ).

BLUE CHIP BOOK OF THE MONTH

Tales of Suspense 50 ( First Mandarin )

ima44ges

Personally I think the Mandarin is a terrible villain but movies from Marvel turn crud ( whiplash ) into back issue gold and this book will be no different. His first appearance is not mired in confusion like Darkseid and the actor playing the master of the rings is one of Hollywood’s best!

THE TITANS gear up for “THE METHUSELAH IMPERATIVE”

Over on DC’s THE SOURCE blog, TITANS writer Eric Wallace discussed the new storyline, THE METHUSELAH IMPERATIVE, that begins in TITANS ANNUAL #1 and heads to the main series as of issue 37.

According to WALLACE (and the covers) we’ll see the JLA, witness how ROY HARPER’s encounter with DICK GRAYSON helps or hurts his chances at redemption, and see a shift in OSIRIS and ISIS’ relationship as Osiris continues his quest to restore BLACK ADAM. Plus, we’ll see the story fans have been waiting for, as the original ATOM, Ray Palmer, finally catches up with the team that killed RYAN CHOI, the new, now late, Atom. Here’s some of what Wallace had to say:

First of all, this is our biggest story yet since Deathstroke took over the team. Some of the action in the TITANS ANNUAL (part one of “The Methuselah Imperative”) is pretty intense. Readers are going to love when they see what artist Cliff Richards has accomplished. The only way to describe it is “epic.” It’s exactly why we all love it when big superhero teams like the JLA meet up with a group of nasty villains like our current roster of Titans. You just know carnage will ensue.
