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.

Spider_VerseWith the recent announcement of the new Spider-Man Event called “Spider-Verse” it got us thinking; how long will it take us to compile a list together for our fans. Well it took a little while, but it was well worth it. In case you’re out of the loop a little bit, Spider-Verse will bring together every single different form of the Spider-Man character ever in a Spidey event series. Sounds like fun!

For fans alike, this should be an absolute thrill ride. The readers will be in eye candy heaven. So what does this mean exactly for the speculator? Well they too will have a joy ride ahead of them. The math is not hard on this one at all. Here is how it will probably go down. Spider-Verse will release and there will be a mad frenzy for many of the Spidey characters. Be it in a suit/Spidey-Armour/power or anything for that matter. Marvel will get wind of the public outcry for say…..the Iron Spider-Man (one of our personal favorites) and they will respond. Bottom line folks, expect some branching out of the Spider-Man Universe for years to come. Be on top of some of the ridiculous ones and the stellar ones before you’re caught without a copy of that NEW popular Spidey character with their own series.

Iron_Spider_ManNow InvestComics fans can search out just about every single different Spider-Man (and female) that pretty much exist right here……on one page.

As we mentioned earlier, one of our favorite Spidey creations has to be the Iron Spider-Man. The late Michael Turner still has one of our favorite modern day comic covers of all time. Civil War #3 (2006) Variant is an absolute beauty (pictured right).

So in no particular order, welcome to the InvestComics: Spider-Verse/Spider-Man Checklist! The list compiles not only the different variations of Spider-Man, but it also includes some of the Spidey villains that have emulated him over the years as well.

(Of course there will be some comics left off or some errors made here. Please speak up if you think you got a good one that was inadvertently left off or if there is a mistake. Also, please keep in mind that some of these characters will never see the light of day in the Spider-Verse event, but having fun here is more important.)

Spider-Verse/Spider-Man Checklist

Amazing Fantasy #15 (1962) – First original Spidey costume.

Amazing Spider-Man #529 – The first Iron-Spider-Man suit. This Bryan Hitch cover really pops. The cover shows the suit in its full glory.

Maybe this would be a way for Marvel to sneak in Spider-Man into the Marvel Studio movies. Check out when Spidey goes power cosmic for the first time right here. Erik Larsen at the helm once again.

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man #66 (1982) – Spidey is having all sorts of issues with Electro in this comic. So he builds an Electro suit.

Amazing Spider-Man #425 (1997) – The “return” of the Electro suit. Much different (so cool!)

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 9-23-09

Many Hot Picks coming at you this week. So get ready to sift through some back issue bins as you pick up your new comics this week.

spiderwoman1.gif
marvelspotlight32_firstspiderwoman1977.gifSpider-Woman # 1 
The highly successful team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev team up to bring an all new ongoing. Yes, you’re probably saying ‘how many failed attempts will we go for with this character?’ Marvel has a knack for trying to revive certain characters over and over, but it seems that if you get a good writer on a book these days, you’ll have success. Iron Fist seems to fit this bill so does Ms. Marvel and Deathlok will fit this bill as well when his ongoing comes out. Comic collectors are an extremely smart bunch these days and are not going to be fooled by pretty pictures anymore. There has to be a deep substance to go along with the awesome display of artwork that is hitting every Wednesday. So when you’re checking out the awesomeness of the new Spider-Woman book, check out the awesomeness of Marvel Spotlight #32. $30 will get you this first appearance of Jessica Drew from 1977. This is a Bronze age comic that is
waiting to explode. The new Spider-Woman book coming out will be a sell out and collectors will take note to try and find the first appearance. Marvel Spotlight #32 is a buy all the way here, collectors, you’ll be left on the outside looking in if you don’t pick this one up.

Dark Reign Vol 1: Made Men  – Here we have one of those comics with a plethora of characters that need some attention. Find these first appearance if you will……Spymaster has 3 different first appearances. His very first appearance would be Iron Man Vol 1 #33. An easy $35 will score you this one. Then you have Spymaster 2 in Iron Man Vol 1 #254 ($3) with a great Santa Claus cover! The latest Spymaster comes out of Ironman Inevitable from 2006 (cover price). This would be the first Sinclair Abbot Spymaster. The Enforcer makes his first appearance in Ghost Rider Vol 1 #22 ($7). This is a Bronze age Jack (King) Kirby cover! Then you have Jack O’ Lantern’s first appearance in Machine Man #19, penciled by Steve Ditko and a cover by Frank Miller. Great buy here for only $18. Last but not least, Attuma first appears in Fantastic Four #33. This comic will cost you about $400. So there you go, a lot of characters in this book with a lot of hunting for you. 

theweb1.gifarchieandfriends107katykeenestory2007theweb.gifWeb # 1 

A few weeks ago, InvestComics jumped the gun again! Man this place is eager! Anyway, here is the original weekly Hot Pick from a 8-19-09:

The Red Circle: The Web # 1  This is another installment of J. Michael Straczynski  returning some old heroes to the DC mix. This hero like last weeks Hangman have appeared in many Archie comics as well as DC’s Imprint Impact. Although this really isn’t  J. Michael Straczynski return to DC (see Hot Picks Week Of 8-5-09 for more of an explanation on the ‘return’ of Mikey to DC) The Web will be an interesting comic book to check out.  With J.M. at the helm on these books it’s easy to say it should be worth a look from anyone that is a collector. Looks like it’ll probably be another sleeper for DC. So if you would like to look for the last time The Web made an appearance in an Archie era comic look no further than Archie and Friends # 107 and look for the Katy Keene Story within the comic. There you will find hero The Web. DC’s Imprint The Web with Impact isn’t really worth a look because they changed the Web hero into a team. 

supermansecretorigin1.gifSuperman: Secret Origin # 1  Gary Frank and Geoff Johns get together again
to crank out the next hottest series for DC. The Superman origin has had many
different takes over the years, but never with a talent or respect since John
Byrne’s Man of Steel mini from 1986 has a Superman origin story garnished so
much attention. Geoff Johns and Gary Frank will take Superman to new heights
with this one.
 

 

uncannyxmen515.gifUncanny X-Men # 515 
Marvel says ‘the effects of Utopia are felt here’ and it looks like someone from the original Mutant pack is leaving on a jet plane. Well maybe on foot, maybe by subway, maybe by boat or maybe you should just stay put and read it!

 

 

Here are some other Hot comics coming at you this Wednesday……
