www.trendingpopculture.com – NEW InvestComics Comic Hot Picks every Sunday!
Back to regular business after a 3 part Dark Knight Hot Picks special last week. Let’s get right into this week!
Michael Avon Oeming and Brain Michael Bendis first released their much beloved Image Comics Powers series in 2000. Now the powers that be (pun intended) have taken this series to its first new spinoff number one issue. Powers FBI #1. Not so much a spinoff actually, but a new title name. Either way this is quite awesome for all comic book fans and they should eat this up. Expect sellouts quickly. The Powers #1 from 2000 will cost only $12 to buy, not a bad deal at all.
Desconsecrator is causing all sorts of havoc within the pages of The Mighty Thor #17 this week. Catch this characters first appearance two issues prior in The Mighty Thor #15.
….and wrapping up Marvel here, the newest X-book X-Treme X-Men #1 debuts.
DC’s Flash #11 re-introduces fans to Heat Wave. Heat Wave first appeared within the pages of the Flash #140 back in 1963. The legend Carmine Infantino graces us with the cover to this beauty. A cool $300 gets you this first appearance.
Fans find out secret origin of Pozhar in The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #11 this week. Check out Pozhar’s debut in The Fury of Firestorm #62 from 1987. The wonderful talents of John Ostrander (writer) and the late great Dick Giordano (inks) are on this comic for only $3.
Kid Eternity returns this week. National Comics Eternity #1 (what’s with the title?). If you’re in the market for a first “slow trending” first appearance comic, this would be the one. Hit Comics #25 from 1942 will hit your wallet for only $2000. A first appearance of a character from 1942 for only $2000? It’s not like we all don’t know who Kid Eternity is, apparently not much of a demand for the Kid. And indecently, the first post crisis Kid Eternity appears in Kid Eternity #1 from 1991. You could probably find this comic (along with The Fury of Firestorm #62) hiding out in some one dollar boxes at your local comic shop.
…And staying on the backup story theme here, All-Star Western #11 introduces Terrence 13 in a backup.
Superman #11 introduces fans to some sort of new alien that will be a thorn in his side for a few issues.
Image Comics’ Superman; Supreme is making a little bit of noise with his comeback. Supreme #66 comes out this week and his first appearance is in the overprinted 25 cent bins Youngblood #3 (1992). Rob Liefeld all over this comic…
Also from Image this week a new number one issue to check out; Debris #1.
Mad Magazine Batman collects all of the craziness of their Batman stories in a special. If you’re a Mad fan this is for you. If you’re not a Mad fans, well you’re missing out.
