Thanks to writer Chuck Dixon, he gives these characters their long overdue in this issue and next. The four issue Code of Honor series was a good one too.

The Supernaturals #4 (1998) – An appearance in this comic with artist Ivan Reis, writers Brian Pulido and Marc Andreyko.

InvestComics gave our fans a heads up regarding Smosh #1. It sold out immediately. Smosh #2 will hit Wednesday from Dynamite Entertainment. Look for Smosh fans to come back and maybe bring their friends too.

Writer Joe Hill along with artist Gabriel Rodriguez will release a comic book form T.V. show that never made it to T.V.; Tales From the Darkside #1. This comic is an adaptation of a television show that Joe Hill wrote and never saw the light of day on television. So what to do? Bring it to another medium! In comes IDW to scoop up the rights and along with artist Gabriel Rodriguez, we witness that would be television show come to life. And for those of you who don’t know, Joe Hill is the son of masterful writer Stephen King. Joe Hill’s first comic book work can be found for cheap in some dollar bins. The book to look for is Spider-Man Unlimited #8 from 2005.

Are you a Space Knights fans? Even if you’re not (you should be), check out Guardians of Infinity #7 and find out more about the mystery regarding the Space Knights.

Aaron Lopresti’s Power Cubed #2 (Dark Horse) follows up on the first fantastic issue. Doesn’t that look like Marvel’s Devil Dinosaur on the cover though? Guess any red colored T-Rex will look like Devil dinosaur right? Also coming from Dark Horse this week is Steam Man #1. That comic caters to the steampunk fans.

DC continues the deep origin the Arkham Knight in Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #3.

The Justice League team have new powers and are all “God like”. The new powered Justice League team appears in this weeks Justice League #45.

For those interested, Teen Titans Hunt #1 will focus on the secret origin of the team.

Some of the best reading source material comes from DC’s imprint Vertigo. This week Gail Simone writes Clean Room #1 from Vertigo. There’s not much else to say here, but this will probably be a very good read.

The Invincible title will dare to reboot itself? Check out Invincible #124 as everything in the comic starts from the beginning? Only Robert Kirkman would do this to us. This is probably a fantastic jumping on point too.

An Inhuman stars in his own book this Wednesday. Karnak #1 written by the awesome Warren Ellis. A pick up for sure. Also, Karnak first appears in a book InvestComics has been touting for years now; Fantastic Four #45 (1965). We’re still a bull on this comic.

The number one issue parade continues onward for Marvel Comics this week. Astonishing Ant-Man #1 looks like a decent book, but haven’t we all seen the movie though? And what’s with all the characters on the Mark Brooks cover? Secret Wars Agents Of Atlas #1 will throw a bunch of characters together in hopes you at least like one of them and buy the book.

Speaking of the Inhumans. The new Uncanny Inhumans #1 comic is very iffy. It’s an all new line up; Human Torch? Beast? We’re not really feeling the additions here. The old team is where it’s at. A great creative lineup could sway many readers and collectors alike that are not grasping the initial vibe here. Charles Soule writes and Steve McNiven does the art.

New Star Wars comic; Darth Vader #11. More fantastic Star Wars material from Marvel.

Valiant Entertainment rolls on with their epic Book of Death event. This Wednesday readers will get treated to Book Of Death Fall of X-O Manowar #1. If you’re not reading Valiant comic books, you need to get on it. You’ll be hooked.

Vet Tix: Eddie Rausch

Vet_TixWho and what  is Vet Tix? Their Mission:

Giving Something to Those Who Gave.

Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) provides FREE event tickets to family members of troops Killed In Action (K.I.A.), our Military and Veterans to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities. Attending these events reduces stress through entertainment, strengthens family bonds, builds life long memories and encourages service members to stay engaged with American life and local communities. Giving free event tickets is an expression of appreciation, acknowledgement and an enduring symbol that we, as a nation, honor the service of our troops today and long after their tour of duty has passed. Helping our veterans attend events provides positive family and life experiences after their years of service to our country.

….And with that, a one on one chat with the COO of Vet Tix, Mr. Eddie Rausch. (Please note: Click on any of the covers in this article to see a full image)

Jay Katz: Thank you so much for stopping by Eddie. With great humility Eddie, I want to tell you that InvestComics supports Vet Tix and your cause with great respect.

Eddie Rausch: Thank you for the kind words Jay. Vet Tix appreciates the support you and InvestComics provides our mission.

JK: Why did you decide to start Vet Tix? What compelled you to begin such a tremendous project?

ER: It all started at the 2008 Super Bowl. Two of our other Founders were attending (one U.S. Navy Veteran and the other USMC Veteran) and had a buddy that was part of the pre-game color guard. They learned that once the pre-game ended the color guard were not able to stay and watch the Super Bowl…they were escorted out of the stadium. The entire game the seat next to them sat empty. This seat, this ticket could have been donated so that one of the members of the color guard could have enjoyed the game. The idea was born right there. As soon as I was asked my thoughts about it a day later I was “IN”…thought it was an amazing idea. We have been moving full speed ahead ever since.

JK: Who has come on board to contribute to Vet Tix so far?

ER: If you asking about sports teams then pretty much all of MLB with the exception of 2 teams. Each year we partner with more and more Universities and Bowl Games…last season we distributed tickets to 26 Bowl Games including Fiesta Bowl, Sugar, Bowl, Orange Bowl, Chick-fil-A and AT&T Cotton Bowl. The list really goes on and on including other sports (NBA, NHL, MLS, Minor League Baseball), concerts such as Kenny Chesney, George Strait and a number of music festivals, family events like Disney on Ice and Ringling Brothers, to Broadway plays and even seasonal events like haunted houses and the Polar Express train. If there is a ticket to an event we will accept it and get it distributed to our veterans for use with their families. Later this month we will hit ticket number One Million!!

Lady Death Vet Tix Blank CoverJK: Recently many comic book fans learned about comic book artist Brian Pulido teaming up with Vet Tix. How will Brian contribute?

ER: Brian is absolutely awesome in his support of Vet Tix! Lady Death is his baby…in all reality she is his daughter and he has allowed Vet Tix to be a special part of her 20th Anniversary. He has given Vet Tix permission to reprint issue #1, the one that started it all, and put a blank cover on it stating this is the “Vet Tix Edition” with our logo on the rear cover. We are now working off of a list put together by Brian and myself to secure artists that will create their vision of Lady Death on these 50 covers.

JK: Which creators have come on board so far? Can you share any covers yet or are they still a work in progress?

ER: We have a great list going with more to come…names like Marc Silvestri, Whilce Portacio, Brandon Peterson, Frank Cho, Leinil Frances Yu, Jay Anacleto, Philip Tan, Carlo Pagulayan, Clayton Crain, Kenneth Rocafort, Arthur Adams, Ivan Reis, Humberto Ramos, Mark Brooks, Agnes Garbowska, Billy Tucci, Tim Vigil and Peter Steigerwald. We also have some great new artists that are really turning in some amazing work as well. Artists like Sajad Shah, Dawn McTeigue, Siya Oum, Mike Krome, Jesse Winchman, Jenevieve Broomall, Jaime Tyndall, Mike DeBalfo, Jonathan Marks, Jason Metcalf, Conny Valentina, Sarah Giardina, Alan Quah, Thony Silas and Rian Gonzales. I do not evny the fans that will need to choose between all of these covers…they truly are incredible!!

JK: Brian Pulido is an extremely approachable creator. Any fan that visits a convention knows this. He’s a tremendous talent. What was Brian’s initial response when you approached him regarding a possible project for Vet Tix?

ER: I have known Brian for some time now and for the past few years he has reached out to me/Vet Tix to see how he could support. He has donated back issues to be shipped to our deployed troops and he has started a “Tip Jar” at his table. He will sign all the books a fan wants all he asks is that they donate to the tip jar. These funds at each convention will go to either Vet Tix or Heroes Initiative.

Leinil Francis YuWhen this idea for a blank cover project came up he thought it was perfect timing to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Lady Death and loved the idea. As much as this is an AMAZING way for Vet Tix to raise funds and grant “Hero’s Wishes” I think Brian also enjoys seeing how each artist sees his character. Who knows, maybe we will see more Lady Death from some of these artists now that they have had a chance to draw her and Brian has seen what they can do!

JK: Okay so all 50 comics will be CGC Signature Series graded. Besides being completely awesome, how did you get CGC on board too?

ER: Things just seem to fall in place with CGC. One of our followers on the Facebook event page has a connection high up with CGC. He reached out to me and suggested I call this contact. I did, explained the project and it was a done deal. I was told to send all the completed covers in at once and to mark them to HIS attention and CGC would make certain this books would be made a priority in turn around time. It helps to have fans that also believe in your mission!!

JK: Where can collectors bid on the CGC Lady Death Artist Project once they are done?

ER: Vet Tix has an eBay seller’s account. We have gone through the process of being vetted by them so we can auction the items and any fees that would normally be charged are returned to us due to our status as a 501c3 non profit organization. I would suggest anyone interested add “vet-tix” to their favorite sellers list.

They may also join the event page on Facebook, search Lady Death Artist Project benefiting Vet Tix – Hero’s Wish. On this event page we will post work in progress pics, completed cover pics and add the live links to the eBay auction for each and every cover!

Jay AnacletoJK: Do you have any other creator projects after Brian Pulido’s Lady Death Project that you can tell us about?

ER: WE do!! On the heels of the Lady Death project we will also be doing a similar blank cover project with Billy Tucci for the 20th Anniversary of “Shi, Way of the Warrior”. Our goal is to be able to collect these completed covers and display at either Baltimore or New York Comic Con this fall. There is also an event page on Facebook for this project.

Clayton CrainJK: Are you a comic book collector??

ER: I did collect comics for a number of years, have long box after long box in my collection. I still do a little now, trying to put together a run of Amazing Spider-Man and X-Men 1-100 together, but in 2008 things changed for me when Michael turner passed away from his long battle with cancer. I realized I collected the comic books for the art and began collecting Original Art from those artist I admire.

JK: Please tell everyone where they can go to make a donation, contribute, or become part of the cause.

ER: It is simple, go to www.VetTix.org. Here you can donate tickets and/or money, become verified in our system if you have served or are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or if you are primary next of kin to killed in action and begin making use of the service we provide.

JK: Thank you so much for your time Eddie. Your foundation is an amazing tribute to the men and women who serve this great country of ours. It was an honor. Thank you.

ER: Thank you Jay. What we do here at Vet Tix is a true pleasure and an HONOR. Not many people get to do what they love on a day to day basis but I can tell you the staff here at Vet Tix absolutely loves being able to create opportunities for our veterans to make memories with their families that will last a lifetime. Some of my strongest memories from my childhood are from going to baseball games with my father when he was on leave from his service in Vietnam and I want to be able to give Jenevieve BroomallMike Krome

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 7-31-13

(Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and more so for entertainment purposes. Any opinions or expression of investments should be used as a judgement upon the investor, not InvestComics. Please use your own discretion when investing and have fun.)

Last week was a fantastic time to pick up those back issues to build up your portfolio. This week it seems would be a great time to do so again. A limited amount of books covered this week means more time to sift through those long boxes.

A quick shout out goes to @GQComics for giving InvestComics a heads up to one of their Hot Picks Todd The Ugliest Kid, completely missing the story on Adult Swim putting Todd into development for a possible series. @GQComics asked if it would be wise to sell at this time. The answer is no, not just yet. The news is still too fresh to be dumping anything. If the comic falls into “development hell” and never sees the light of day, well then it truly is up to the speculator to make that call as early as possible to dump. That said like mentioned already, it’s just too early to dump. Be sure to track the progress, keep the ear to the ground here because the $50 comic can easily fall back to earth if you delay too long. So another Hot Pick finds its way to everyone’s bank account. Sure does put the non-collectors (non-believers) in check doesn’t it? Again, special thanks again to @GQComics for the heads up; make sure to follow GQ on Twitter.

Tom Strong finds his way back into the DC Universe/Vertigo line. Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 will find Tom Strong in a rough spot to start off his series. The original Tom Strong first appeared in 1999’s Tom Strong #1 under DC’s America’s Best Comic label. The series was written by one of the most enigmatic writers of our time, Alan Moore. The original series lasted only 36 issues. Mr. Moore bowed out by issue number 22, leaving the series to some of the most talented writers in the industry today. Names like Vaughan, Brubaker, and Casey. Even they couldn’t save the series from its ultimate demise. Alan Moore would return for the series finale in issue #36. The number one issue should be sitting in some one dollar bin at your local shop or convention. Not a hard book to find at all.

A few number one issues are coming our way this week with two standouts, the first being Captain Midnight (2013 Dark Horse) #1 and Skyward (2013 Action Lab) #1. Call this a gut speculation here, Interesting plot lines from two very good publishers. A recipe for possible good things to come! Another interesting book to check out is Collider (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1. This might be a sleeper. More government plots here, but these stories seem to be the “go to” these days. 3 Guns (2013 Boom) #1 will continue where the Denzel/Walberg movie 2 Guns left off. Great sequel name! How original!

Marvel feeds readers more Wolverine (coincidence with the movie debuting this week? Think not.). Wolverine In The Flesh (2013) #1 brings a tale with a Top Chef involved. Um, okay.

(Insert sarcasm here) Hey guess what else we get from Marvel this week?! A new status quo issue! Wow! Fearless Defenders (2013) #7 will “change things!” Thank goodness for that nice cover from Mark Brooks or no one would care. Was that thought said out loud?

A latest contest announcement will be coming in the InvestComics newsletter, so be sure to sign up for that to be the first to find out!

The Future of FEARLESS DEFENDERS Is Marvel NOW!

Superstars Cullen Bunn & Will Sliney Bring the Defenders to the Next Level!

New York. NY—November 9, 2012— This February, the Defenders come together again in Fearless Defenders #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the amazing creative team of writer Cullen Bunn (Venom, Sixth Gun, The Fearless)  and artist Will Sliney (MacGyver, Star Wars)! As part of Marvel NOW!, Fearless Defenders  joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Valkyrie trying to make amends for her mistakes—mistakes that put the entire world in jeopardy—is tasked with choosing a group of heroic women to fight by her side, not from the women of Asgard, but from the heroic women of Earth.  Circumstance will provide her with an unlikely partner in this task, as she is joined by private investigator Misty Knight. With very different points of view and very different approaches, they will both find their definitions of heroism and honor put to the test by the women they lead and the challenges they face.

“The Defenders has always been defined by a team roster that’s as unusual as the threats it faces, and we’re about to take it up several notches,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Whether, your problem is nasty Ninjas, murderous trolls or shambling zombies, there’s no one better suited to defend you that this all-new, all-female team.” 

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With Fearless Defenders, Marvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective in the adventures of the Defenders.

“Fearless Defenders will chronicle the adventures of the female heroes of the Marvel Universe. There will be a central team of characters that will form over time, but the cast will rotate to some degree from arc to arc. This will be a team like none other in Marvel NOW,” said writer Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “I think readers will have a good time speculating on who will be joining this version of the Defenders. The team up of Valkyrie and Misty Knight is probably unexpected for most people, and that’s just one of the surprises I have in store. This will be an offbeat team, and they’ll be facing some bewildering threats.”

Each issue of Fearless Defenders features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW! And want to make sure their voices are heard throughout this exciting time. Stay tuned for more news on how Marvel will be working directly with retailers to make sure our programs address their needs.”

An all-new direction! An all-new team! All-new threats! This is Fearless Defenders NOW!

This February, Cullen Bunn and Will Sliney bring together a new chapter in the team’s life in Fearless Defenders #1!
