We usually cover the independent comics after the Marvel and DC Hot Picks, but this week we’re going to lead with an indie that needs your attention. Archie Comics relaunched many of their Archie comic series’ back a couple of years ago with the thought in mind to bring the ‘realistic’ type feel into the books. Gone away is the campy vibe. Many of the Archie comics in the past few years have not been for the younger audience, but they still do have their digest and other kid friendly books. However, this Wednesday’s Archie #22 will tell the tale of a death in the family. A Riverdale character will leave us. This isn’t Archie dying in some dream sequence, this is a character getting written off. Expect media coverage of this book and an immediate bump in the aftermarket here. More importantly, expect a somber, well thought out story from Mark Waid (art by Pete Woods). Get this comic quick, it’ll head to a second printing in a hurry.

Will readers finally get a little more insight into Harley’s parents in Harley Quinn #24? The last (and only) time we visited the family of Harley was back in Gotham City Sirens #7 (2010). That issue was the first appearance of Harley’s mother, dad and brother. This comic is only $10 on Ebay right now. Now that we mentioned it, expect it to bounce a bit again. And how long before DC capitalizes Harley’s brother as a bad guy that teams up with his sister or better yet, a super-hero going against his sister. Maybe a whole family affair with mom and dad too. The Harley Family…..the possibility of any of this is there and will probably come to fruition someday. Just give us credit for giving you a heads up, don’t be knucklehead and take credit for this.

Alpha Flight #1

Click to Buy Now

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).

IC 100 Club Pick: Alpha Flight #1 (1983) 9.6. This is the classic John Bryne Alpha Flight #1 from 1983. It features the first appearance of Puck and Marrina, as well as the origin of Alpha Flight. It has a buy it now price of only $46.75. Not a bad price at all for a 9.6. 

Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading. Go back to the other places selling you the farm. This is NOT the place for you. We’re here to have fun and not lie to you. Thank you and enjoy!

John Constantine will return this week; Hellblazer #1. Writer Simon Oliver and artist Moritat bring the new story.
Jaime Reyes, A.K.A. Blue Beetle will get his own series starting this Wednesday. Jaime’s first appearances as himself and as BB are very easy finds and extremely easy on the wallet too. Infinite Crisis #3 (2006) is the first appearance of Jaime Reyes. It takes Reyes two issues to get his gear together and in Infinite Crisis #5 (2006) he first appears as Blue Beetle. The creative team of Blue Beetle Rebirth #1 consist of legend Keith Giffen (writer) and Scott Kolins (art).
A disturbingly awesome Steve Dillon cover on Sixpack And Dogwelder Hard-Traveling Heroz #1 peeks our interest on what the inside may bring. Writer Garth Ennis and artist John McCrea return to their Section Eight creation. Garth and John first created Six-Pack back in 1996 – Hitman #9. Dogwelder(2) first appeared in Convergence Harley Quinn #2 (2015).

DC warns readers to prepare themselves for the last page in Detective Comics #939. Check it out and no reading at the new release comics wall! Get out da way!
The H.I.V.E. Queen plans on getting under the Teen Titans’ nerves in Teen Titans #23. In a long line of new 52 characters and new female comic characters, H.I.V.E. Queen is kinda neat. Check out her first appearance in Superman #21 (2013). We’re not too sure if that issue is a cameo or not, so be sure to check out Superman #22 (2013) as well. The Superman #22 Kenneth Rocafort cover rocks too!

It’s always a good thing to be alerted that Spider-Man will fight Venom. So here’s your alert. Venom Space Knight #11; Spidey vs. Venom. Has Spidey fought the “Space Knight” Venom though? Is this a first?
Deadpool #17 features the villain Madcap. The Deadpool comics have a knack of reviving comic characters from the past no one either cared too much for or forgot about altogether. So with that said, Madcap’s first appearance was in Captain America #307 (1985).

InvestComics informed our readers about Scout Comics’ Once Our Land #1 a few weeks ago and it sold out right after our article was released. An immediate aftermarket sensation and Once Our Land #2 will be no exception. Watch as this issue goes into immediate demand as well this week.
From Chapter House Publishing this week comes Northguard #1. Coming from the pages of their other Canadian hero Captain Canuck. To find Northguard’s very first appearance though, you’d have to go all the way back to 1984’s New Triumph Northguard #1 from Matrix Graphic Series. There’s a few available on Ebay.

Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #1 – The introduction of the new villain; Arkham Knight!

S.H.I.E.L.D. #9 – A double size issue, never before published Jack Kirby and Jim Steranko work and some past history of Shield. All the variants are sold out.

Deathstroke #9 – Superman vs Deathstroke! What more do you need to know?

Batgirl #43 – This comic, Batgirl deals with the mysterious Velvet Tiger. She was first introduced in Detective Comics #518 (1982). This comic also happens to be an early Deadshot appearance with a fantastic Jim Aparo cover.

Flash #43 – In the solicit we are told a deadly new villain comes into the fray. His name is Folded Man. Well since DC is still living in this New 52 world where a “new” character is not really new, Folded Man was actually introduced back in Flash #153 in 1965. This comic also happens to have an early Zoom appearance.

Batgirl #43 deals with the mysterious Velvet Tiger. She was first introduced in Detective Comics #518 (1982). This comic also happens to be an early Deadshot appearance with a fantastic Jim Aparo cover.

The Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #1 comic is one of those video game comic books. All the covers look absolutely stunning. Stjepan Sejic, Jim Lee and the Incentive cover (no name listed). In which the incentive cover is the best of the bunch in our humble opinion. The introduction of the new villain; Arkham Knight! Awesome comic here.

Superman vs Deathstroke in Deathstroke #9. This looks like a fun fight! In all actuality it should last a shorter time than a Ronda Rousey fight, but we’ll read and watch anyway.

Aquaman, seven series number one issues, two of which were limited series. None of the regular series made it past 77 issues. What does this mean exactly? Well it means that Aquaman was never a character taken very seriously. Always on the receiving end of the joke. Nowadays things are a bit different (many thanks to Geoff Johns), although the character still holds the stigma of being a lame duck in many circles, Warner Brothers will be going all in with a solo movie release. Rumor has it that he’ll first appear in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice first, then we’ll see the solo movie a couple of years later. It’s then we’ll see if the world is truly ready for a live action Aquaman movie.

It was writer Geoff Johns that vowed to make Aquaman a cool character. He’s achieved this feat with many naysayers saying it couldn’t be done. Now the transition to film will be the defining moment for the most powerful water character in the entire DC Universe.

Below are some key Aquaman appearances throughout the years. First appearances, number one issues, appearances in other comics, etc. Debuting from 1941, there are plenty of comics to look for here. Plenty of affordable books along the way here too.

Please remember as always here on InvestComics, read the disclaimer. With that said, there will in fact be books that are not on this list. They were probably inadvertently missed. No problem, list your favorite book below or in the comment section in one of our social media outlets. Also remember that the Aquaman movie comes out in 2018, there are no right or wrong answers here.

Dawn  (2)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

 

Wonder Woman has made her movie debut in the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer (Pictured). Now the clock starts ticking as to when WW will get her own solo film, if ever. Can she, will this character be able to hold up in their own film? That’s the million dollar question. A great character with some serious history. There are many directions the Wonder Woman franchise can go, whether any of them work or not is the big question. Not doubting it cannot be done, just a little hesitant to call a WW solo film an absolute winner. For now though, there are plenty of comics to pick up within the 74 years of comic history here; first appearances and key books. Plenty of time as well. We won’t see a solo Wonder Woman title movie for a while. Look for these comics below in the mean time. Some are great pickups right now because the frenzy has not hit.

Dawn  (1)

Dawn of Justice – Wonder Woman

There are many Wonder Woman first appearances and key issues that did not make this list. With the rich history comes a lot of material. Also, the DC universe is a vast and convoluted place. There are too many Earth 2, Earth this, Post Flashpoint, Pre Crisis, Post Crisis, etc. So because of this, there will be misses in this checklist. You are more than welcome to list any comic we may have missed in the comment section below.

Also, many of the earlier comics are not available on Ebay right now. Just because they are not available now does not mean they wouldn’t be later on. Some are in fact available right now, like the very first appearance in All Star Comics #8. Be sure to check back to see if some of the comics you seek have been posted.

 

All Star Comics #8 (1941) First appearance of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor. Golden Age.

Sensation Comics #1 (1942) Second appearance of Wonder Woman. Origin. First appearance of the Invisible plane.

Wonder Woman #605 (2011) First appearances of Anann and Bellona.

Deadpool meets Deathstroke

Click To Buy/Bid Superman/Batman Annual #1 Deathstroke meets Deadpool

InvestComics Checklist – Deathstroke.

Since the inception of InvestComics 10+ years ago, we have informed speculators about Deathstroke. At that time, following InvestComics’ guidance, the first appearance of Deathstroke could cost been a mere $45 for a collector. Now it’s a bit more, but you still may have some upside. Yes he’s already been exposed into the WB Arrow televison show world, but this character still has yet to make it to one more place; the big screen. And he will eventually. When he does, that first appearance with double/triple in value. He’s Marvel’s Deadpool/Punisher rolled into one. The assassin for hire is a total bad as* and DC Comics knows this. The explosiveness of this character brings nothing like DC has on film anywhere. Marvel already has, DC doesn’t. A Deathstroke on the big screen would be a hit. It’s already a hit on Arrow, but television doesn’t always translate to the speculative point in the comics market. Movies usually have a higher impact. Although pricing is a bit high in various places for Deathstroke’s first appearance, it’s still a buy. As a speculator, do your research and your shopping around. The moment you feel you have a deal, go in for the kill and buy it. You’ll be happy you did.

Below is a checklist of many first appearances and more regarding Deathstroke. If this character ever gets his due, look for some of the books in this list to command attention in the aftermarket.

Remember to click any RED links or comic cover to buy/bid the comic you want on Ebay. Don’t worry if you click a link or comic cover, you won’t lose your place. The click will open a new window for you on a new page, thus saving your spot.

Some Key Deathstroke comics:

The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) The first appearance of Deathstroke. Art by George Perez, cover by George Perez and written by Marv Wolfman. A classic comic and still a bull market here.

The New Teen Titans #9 (1981) Deathstroke didn’t come back for his second appearance until 7 issues later. An extremely undervalued book here.

Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) Part 3 of the Judas contract. This timeless comic features the first appearance of Nightwing and an early appearance of Deathstroke. Classic Perez cover.

Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 (1985) Another timeless classic here. It wasn’t until the fifth issue of this amazingly awesome story we saw an appearance of Deathstroke. George Perez/Marv Wolfman.

Capital_Kevin_Eastman

As mentioned a few weeks ago. InvestComics will be going through some major changes. This will change the landscape in ways that will have other major comic websites following suit. As they do now anyways! Again stay tuned….

Wonder Woman (2011 4th Series) #36 will be a huge book this week. Besides having the amazing superstar David Finch take over the creative duties on the series, there will be major introductions of characters and villains appearing. With a Wonder Woman movie coming in a few years, it’s a safe bet to assume that there will be some hot WW comics along the way. This one being one of them. It won’t have any affect on the movie what’s so ever because the script has already been handed in. But, that said, last minute changes happen often and maybe they borrow from the new direction here? Highly unlikely, but this doesn’t matter. WW books will heat up if DC continues to breath new life into the character and the series. With the Awesome David Finch at the helm and the new characters/villains in the mix, yes this is a very very big start. Buy this on Wednesday. Buy it.

So with Wonder Woman making her noise this week in a big way, how would the other guys answer the bell? With Spider-Woman (2014 5th Series) #1 of course. Not only will readers and collectors alike receive the return of the best Spider-Woman ever in Jessica Drew in her own series, but another character that InvestComics, yes that’s right InvestComics called quite a while ago to stock up on; Silk. I informed everyone here that Silk will be a force to be reckoned with within the Spidey universe. Well so much so, that not only will she appear in the hot number one issue here, but Silk will be getting her own series down the road. How does InvestComics do this? We are the best that’s why. Reiterating the past InvestComics Hot Pick(s), I tell you now, Buy Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2014) and Amazing Spider-Man #4 now before it’s too late. Get the variants signed and graded as also for the aforementioned comic above and flip them. Money to be made here with both Wonder Woman #36 and Spider-Woman #1 variants if done quickly and concisely.

Planet_Venom_InvestComics Spidey_VenomPlanetSuperman Wonder Woman (2013) #13 will feature the New 52 return of a villain group. Look at this comic and see if the story holds as this could lead into something else down the line for the group.

Two female lead books debut this week. Sinergy (2014 Image) #1 and Punk Mambo (2014) #0. Of course the Image comic is sold out already, while Valiants Punk Mambo is showing some very strong sales. And another sold out Image comic; Intersect (2014 Image) #1 looks very interesting. A must for collectors and readers.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2013 3rd Series) #21 will feature the Venom Planet. Gotta love that. The first time readers ever got a glimpse of the symbiote planet was in 1995’s Amazing Spider-Man Super Special #1. Fun times…..fun times indeed.

Batman_Superman_InvestComics Amazing_Spider_man_1Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #10 continues the Spider-Verse saga. You know what InvestComics has been saying about this, so no need in repeating. But if you’re new here, just scroll back to the previous weeks InvestComics Hot Picks and a few months ago as well to catch up. Yeah, that’s how we roll, we give you a heads up way before.

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #16 welcomes new series artist Ardian Syaf. This dude is on point.

Image Comics Goners (2014 Image) #2 is a sold out. And Epochalypse (2014 Legendary) #1 from Legendary looks like an interesting book. Check that one out.

See you soon. Invest wisely.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 6/18/14

Important note here first:

ALL InvestComics material within the weekly Hot Picks is 100% authentic and original. If you see anything mentioned on the internet or on social media that is written here, it came from HERE. This article is from a pure speculation vantage point and is not researched, read about, and or borrowed from ANY website or social media outlet. Every thought, every recommendation, every prediction, every gain, every loss, everything is InvestComics. So when I inform you to buy up Namor comics a few months ago (In January – InvestComics Hot Picks #304), I had no idea that an article(s) would pop up regarding a possible Namor movie recently. Read the reasoning behind the speculation and you’ll understand that I am as authentic as they come. And then in the InvestComics #316 article it reads “…….Like Namor, yeah Namor. He’s going to be some sort of a factor. Be it now or in the not so distant future, but watch out for him. I’ve mentioned this before. This is a gut. Who knows…….?”  Namor was recommended a few more times after that and even before that too, so for those who ignored it, no biggie, you still have plenty of time before Marvel makes the official announcement whenever that may be (years).  You see, InvestComics is setting trends, breaking ground, making the “big guys”…….the “big” comic book websites take notice. Would they ever give credit where it’s due? No way. That would be too noble and unfortunately not everyone is as honest as I am. The aforementioned character is only a recent example of a plethora of characters I have speculated on and many, many of them have come to fruition, thus making some serious profits for speculators that have followed the website since its inception in 2005. More often than not these days there is another website or person taking credit from this article. Give kudos, give references, give the credit where it is due.

InvestComics is bucking the trend, setting the trend, altering the market if you will.  Even the latest Facebook group we are generating buzz – Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society) – right HERE. Speaking of buzz, we are on BuzzFeed, Yahoo, GPAnalysis (On site rss feed/Membership email blast), MyComicShop (weekly email blast), ComicWow, and countless others.

So what is the moral of this rant? Know that the source material you read week in and week out from THIS weekly article is coming from an ORIGINAL place; InvestComics. We truly are leading the way. And thanks to YOU.

Have you heard that Daredevil will be coming to a television screen near you soon? That’s if you’re buying into Netflix of course. And of course you knew about Daredevil, but what about his rouge gallery? He has a few you should definitely have those in your collection by now. Typhoid Mary is still affordable and that should without a doubt be picked up. She first appeared in Daredevil #254 (1988). On the more expensive side you can and should always buy Amazing Spider-Man #50 (1967) whenever you have a chance. Never pass up the Kingpin’s first appearance. Especially since Marvel/Netflix just announced the person for that role on the television show. No matter really, Amazing Spidey #50 is a winner with or without that show coming on.  So then you have Daredevil (2014 4th Series) #4 coming out this week. This issue will focus on the all new villain The Owl. This villain will probably and most likely appear on the Netflix show as well. Check out the Owl’s first appearance in Daredevil #3 (1964). The new Daredevil issue this Wednesday will also bring Foggy Nelson into the equation. Will Foggy be a part of the new show too? Probably, but you’ll have to fork down some serious dough to get his first appearance because it just so happens to be the first appearance of Matt Murdock himself in Daredevil #1 (1964). Like in the case of the Amazing Spider-Man #50 issue though, Daredevil #1 will always be in the buy market.

Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #32 will bring Nocturna front and center in the new 52 universe. And just in case you’re wondering; Nocturna’s first appearance is in Detective Comics #529 (1983).

There is one knockout punch coming from Image Comics this week that you need to get and have fun with in the aftermarket; Wicked and Divine (2014) #1. The comic is completely sold out across the board. Regular and variants are sold out. So get em’ while they’re hot. MPH (2014 Image) #2 variants are gone. Look for second prints on this comic to follow soon.

InvestComics Hot Picks – Single Issue – Superman Adventures 4

index

033

In the world a comic collecting we love it when a character takes the market by storm.  Though the jury is out on Livewire she definitely has a shot at becoming the next big thing in comics.  At first glace she doesn’t seem to have much going for her, like a weak origin and a first appearance in Superman Adventures 5 which is by no means a favorite amongst comic fans.  But like HQ she has a killer costume and sometimes that’s all it takes.

If her introduction into the New 52 blows fans away then look out, her small list of past appearances will see  value increase similar to early HQ appearances.

Currently Superman Adv 5 and Action 835 are hot.  With recently sales of 40 and even 100 for Superman Adv 5 no one can deny her electric rise in popularity.  Unfortunately for people who paid a lot for those comics they might be upset to learn that her image appeared first at the end of the previous issue, Superman Adventures 4!  That’s not to say that issue 5 isn’t valuable.  It is her first cover and first appearance in a narrative. It’s just not a first appearance and in comics that is often the most important thing to collect.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 4/30/14

NOTE: Please excuse the functionity and look of the website at the moment. There is a lot going on behind the scenes right now and it’s messing with a lot of the site right now. Thank you for your patience as we work through this.

Amazing Spider-Man will relaunch this upcoming week with Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #1. The relaunch of this third SpideyHP43014_Covers (6) series is due to the lack of success the previous two series’ have had. With 100% sarcasm attached to the previous comment, Marvel’s relaunch here is their way to cash in on Sony’s new Spidey movie coming out this week…..and of course grab as much money from the collector pockets as possible too. Nothing wrong with a company wanting to make money, but watering down things quite a bit aren’t we with 16 variants? But money to be made nonetheless! So what should you do? Stick with the usual rules. Get the variants with the best ratio. Get the variants signed and graded. That’s it. Or get a variant you really dig, get that signed and graded. Either sit on it for your own love of it or sell it very quick. The Amazing Spider-Man #1 variant craze is going to be short lived.

More variant cover madness hits with Rai (2014 Valiant) #1. At last count with this one there are 10. So between the Amazing Spider-Man #1 and Rai #1 there are 26 variants in total. That’s 2 comics, and 26 variants. Wow. Anyway, Check out Rai’s first appearance in his self-titled book from 1992. Also brought to you by Valiant. And the total number of variants for Rai in 1992? Zero.

HP43014_Covers (5)There are 2 DC Comics to check out this week. First one, the more important one too is Adventures of Superman (2013) 2nd Series #12. An introduction of an all new character named Demolisher. Introduction of new characters are always a 100% pickup on new comic book day. Know this. The other DC Comic; Flash (2011) Annual #3 will reintroduce Wally West into the New 52 realm. Aftermarket will take more to the Demolisher intro in the long run IF the character is a recurring one.

Sold out number ones to keep your eye on this Wednesday. Dream Police (2014 Image) #1, written by J. Michael Straczynski. Southern Bastards (2014) #1 with the team of Jason squared; Jason Aaron and Jason Latour.  V-Wars (2014) #1 (IDW Publishing) has a Kevin Eastman variant. Two comics from Red 5 have the sold out sign at the distributor; Bad Dreams (2014) #1 and Haunted (2014 Red 5) #1.

And finally, Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) Annual #1 will have the first look at a new team. The Avengers of the Supernatural. Hey, I don’t make this stuff up, I report on it.

HP43014_Covers (1)Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.

Comic Broker Report – April 2014

It seems like every day there’s some new announcement for comic film and T.V. adaptations.  Today it’s Superior from Mark Millar!  No matter what it is critical that studios keep putting out films like The Winter Soldier.  As long as that happens studios will continue to harvest the back issues bins and extract things like Squee! and Dreadstar!  Here are this month’s recommendations:

Detective Comics 457

Detective_Comics_457

Is Holly Hunter playing Leslie Thompkins in Zack Snyder’s sequel to Man of Steel?  If she does go grab multiple copies of this one.  Not

Note:  This one is highly speculative.  Nothing has been confirmed.

RAVAGER!

Ok so Summer Glau is still being type cast but she looks good as Ravager/Rose Wilson, daughter of the mega popular Deathstroke on CW’s Arrow.  As far as I can tell these would be the issues to buy:

Deathstroke 15 ( first Rose Wilson )

55_33593_0_DeathstrokeTheTerminator15Exca

Teen Titans 1/2 Wizard ( first Ravager costume? )

BI_teentitanshalfv3

Teen Titans Vol. 3  # 8

j

On the show Summer plays Isabel Rochev who is also a major player in the current comic series and like the comic version, she takes over Oliver’s company.  But Rochev and Wilson are two different people in the comics.  It looks like Arrow’s Rochev is simply a cover identity to hide the Wilson name.  But if you are wondering where Rochev appears first, here ya go:

Green Arrow Volume Four  1B (  1:25 Ethan Van Sciver Variant )

Green_Arrow_Vol_4_1_Variant

Marvel Graphic Novel 3: Dreadstar

So by now it’s known that Dreadstar is getting the film treatment.  Epic 1,2,3 are all keys if you ask me but this one might prove to be very tough to find in high grade/first print.

d

This isn’t easy to find either!

Marvel’s 1985 Dreadstar Patch

572791

Green Team 8

GreenTeam8

So DC announced the return of the Teen Titans.  This is why you are already seeing price jumps for DC Comics Presents 26.  So what does the Green Team 8 have to do with the Titans?  Read the last page of this underprinted DC New 52 title  for a shocker!

Runaways 1

f

Here’s one I would buy now.  Eventually this Marvel gem will make it to the big screen.  Oh and it’s written by an industry legend.

Dead Letters 1

$_35

Other folks on the web have already shed some light on this one.  There are variants for issue one but the print run for the reg cover was so low that I would buy it as well.  This is one you can find on shelves now if your LCS  orders a wide variety of titles.

New Mutants 25

background

The sequel to X-Men Days of Future Past has already been confirmed by Director Brian Singer.  Once we learned that the Age of Apocalypse story is central to the plot I am sure fans of Legion rejoiced.  Prof  X’s son plays a big role in AOA and if he’s a part of the next film look for this issue to explode.

Warrior 1 ( Signed Only )

2675f578bc504c81402b2453ffbf7f73

Death of a WWE great leads to quick monies.

Invincible 110

th

Sometimes collecting comics for a long time can make one feel as though they have seen it all.  So when  a comic is released by the creator of the Walking Dead with some truly adult subject matter, collector’s should take notice.  In this case we also have a comic has a pretty low print run.  Demand for this book will climb over the next month but there just aren’t enough to go around.

Note:  I would grab issue 44 as well!

Sword of Azrael 1

sth

This one is cheap and well written.  Because the replacement Batman could end up in a film I suggest a little speculation here.   There’s also a DF signed edition and a Silver Series reprint.

Metal Hurlant 1

h

This one is impossible to find.    Corben fans should be pleased that this series is on T.V.

I feel Sick 1,2

dd23dd8c9d103cae30c2e3048352ea6455

It’s not just Squee that’s hot!  I suspect all this creator’s comics will continue to set fires for the foreseeable future.

DMZ 14

th

So Scalped has been optioned ( Thanks to this webpage for informing me! )  Similar to Y the Last Man 37, this issue had a preview of the series most just don’t know about!

GEOFF JOHNS and JOHN ROMITA JR. new SUPERMAN creative team

On the latest DC ALL ACCESS Dan Dido, Geoff Johns and a special guest confirmed what BLEEDING COOL had leaked earlier today. Comic legend John Romita Jr., mostly associated with Marvel, where his even more legendary father left his mark on basically every character and title, will be coming over to DC and joining Geoff Johns on SUPERMAN.

DC had teased a snippet of a picture for this earlier. I have to say, the new 52 armor lends itself well to Romita’s familiar blocky style.  In fact, the image made me think of 90’s Superman artist Jon Bogdanove.

SUICIDE SQUAD #27 Preview

DC has offered up a peak at today’s SUICIDE SQUAD #27.

SUICIDE SQUAD #27 finds Deadshot and the Squad struggling to survive the deadly trap that one of their own sprung on them. It doesn’t matter which Amanda Waller – the real one stuck in the bowels of Belle Reve or the holographic stand-in manipulated by the Thinker – sent them all after O.M.A.C. If the Squad can work together to dig out from underneath the mountain of rubble they’re under, they each now have a singular payback mission: Waller!

Written by Matt Kindt and illustrated by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona and Roger Robinson, SUICIDE SQUAD #21, a FOREVER EVIL tie-in, arrives in stores 01/15/14.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 9-4-13

(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.)

HUGE Hot Picks List. DC Comics runs the table this week with their 3D extravaganza, but more on that in a bit……

Okay don’t mean to rehash, but there is a reason here. Stick with me…..A couple of weeks ago when Warner Brothers announced the signing of Ben Affleck as the latest man to don the cowl, the internet basically broke in pieces of whining fanboys. I can say honestly, I haven’t witnessed an outcry like this in a while. Well since the last major announcement of a superhero casting. Say Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and on and on. I could not believe that I read about a petition being set up to have Ben Affleck removed as Batman. It’s an absolute travesty that fanboys will go this far, or even complain as much as they have in the first place. This is what Warner Brothers decided. There is no changing it. Get a grip, move on. The out lash was so compelling to me that I decided to create a new Facebook page called Affleck as Batman – I’m On Team Ben. If you are a supporter of Ben Affleck as Batman, you should get over to that page and tell any of your friends as well. If not, well that’s fine! You’re entitled to your opinion, but please do not make a fool of yourself. So why do I bring this up today you may ask? I had a few moments to put together a fun 52 second video regarding fanboys that feel compelled to cry about everything. It was done out of fun, no malicious intent here so chill. Watch the video and pass it around. Maybe it will give that whiny fanboy a wakeup call that the world is not going to collapse around them because of a casting for a superhero movie. Get over it.

InvestComics has booked their flight to New York Comic Con 2013! This trip will include a first. An InvestComics team! Rafael Rosario of Ratchet City Comics will be accompanying InvestComics as a Press member. This is a big deal folks. This means more interviews, more coverage, and best of all….more prizes!

….And a couple of news items are coming down the pike from InvestComics soon so stay close to the vest via the InvestComics Newsletter and InvestComics Facebook page!

Let’s be honest here, DC Comics is doing a tremendous job with their money grab. Give them credit here. One thing many have to have to understand is that DC Comics is a business and they do not care what fans think. They really don’t. This is a business first business. Do not kid yourselves into believing that the fans make an iota impact in their decision making. If it did, well the New 52 would never have been. Case in point this week with the 3D cover gimmick. Most readers and collectors haven’t seen the likes of this type of gimmick since the 90’s glow in the dark covers. Fun stuff! So the question here is, does the gimmick destroy the content on the inside? Well that’s for each individual to decide for themselves. What is known about this gimmick is that fans are eating it up like candy! Every single 3D cover is SOLD OUT! That’s right folks! SOLD OUT!

So what does this mean to you? Well this means that if you want to make some serious cash, this would be a fine time to do so. Two things to do here to make the most bang for your buck. One; grab the most popular 3D “character” cover and get it graded by CGC. A high grade is extremely important here. Two; after you get the most “popular”, try to figure out through the numbers game (Diamond Distributors) which comic received the lowest print run. This will be a quick sale for you right now, but in the long haul, you should hold onto one because when the aftermarket settles down, it’s the “rare” book everyone loves. Again, the only way you maximize your monies here is with a very high grade.

Here at InvestComics, I decided to have some fun and look at each individual 3D cover and pair it up with the first appearance of the villain takeover. Scroll through the covers and see them side by side, pretty awesome. So without further ado in alphabetical order………

DC 3D Comics 9-4-13

[scrollGallery id=293]

Forever Evil #1Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 features a Cyborg Superman takeover. Cyborg’s first (not Hank) is in Adventures of Superman #466 (1990).

Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Joker cover, and his debut of course came in Batman #1 (1940).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Two-Face cover, his first is in Detective Comics #66 (1942).

Batman The Dark Knight (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 has a Ventriloquist takeover – her first; Detective Comics #583 (1988), with art by Norm Breyfogle and cover by Mike Mignola, very nice.

Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #23.1 – Poison Ivy cover – her debut; Batman #181 (1966).

Earth 2 (2012 DC) #15.1 – Desaad cover – First appearance; Forever People #2 (1971), Jack Kirby nuff’ said.

Flash (2011) #23.1 – Grodd – Debuted in Flash #106 (1959).

Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #23.1 with Count Vertigo; first appeared in World’s Finest #251 (1978).

Showcase #73Green Lantern (2011 4th Series) #23.1 – Relic. First appearance in Green Lantern #21 (2013)

Justice League (2011) #23.1 – The BEST of the 3D bunch right here. The villain of all DC villains – Darkseid! Refer back to the InvestComics article ‘InvestComics Hot Pick: Single Issue – Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134’ to better understand just how important Darkseid is in the DC Universe.

Justice League Dark (2011) #23.1 – The Creeper first appeared in Showcase #73 (1968). Created by Legend Steve Ditko!

Justice League of America (2013 3rd Series) #7.1 – Deadshot first appeared in Batman #59 (1950). A highly underrated character.

Superman (2011 3rd Series) #23.1 – Bizarro debuted in Superboy #68 (1958).

So that’s all of the 3D madness this week for you. The one comic that will claim responsibility for the villain takeover this week would be Forever Evil (2013 DC) #1. Although with Geoff Johns at the helm here, probably talking a great storyline folks, but as far as monetarily in a few years? Forever Evil #1 will not command much at all, neither will many of these 3D books. Do not hold onto these for long term investments, you will get burned. This is a gimmick upswing; the collector needs to monitor the aftermarket here to make the most on their profits. Stay close to the market, check often and dump when the time is right.

InvestComics Hot Picks 9-4-13

[scrollGallery id=294]

So what else is going on in DC land this week? How about Batman Black and White (2013) #1? All variants for this particular comic are SOLD OUT. With various star artist and writers on this book, and coupled with some spectacular variant covers these comics will do very well in the aftermarket. Get your hands on these. Also from DC we get a royal rumble of sorts; DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe (2013) #1. There are plenty of copies available still, but boy this is going to be a fun comic.

With DC Comics running the table this week, there are a few Marvel Comics to check out and an Indie book NOT to be missed! More on that Indie book in a little bit.

Marvel will bring Spider-Man 2099 back this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #17! Spidey 2099 first came onto the scene in Spider-Man 2099 #1 (1992). However, this week with Superior Spider-Man #17 making the 2099 comeback a big deal, the variants have SOLD OUT. Once again, get your hands on these beautiful variants. They have upside here. Spidey 2099 will be popular once again, so don’t miss the train.

A major X-Men crossover event begins this week (coincidence I think not). Check out X-Men Battle of the Atom (2013) #1 and guess what? Every single variant here is SOLD OUT! ….While the covers are gorgeous, no longevity here in the aftermarket. This is just another crossover event that will probably get many fanboy panties in a bunch anyway.

Venom (2011 Marvel) #40 will focus on the new character Mania. Check HER out. And rounding out Marvel this week; Avengers A.I. (2013) #3 will debut a new world named The Diamond.

Speaking of diamond……..

Anyone remember what happened when Star Wars #1 was released a few months back? Yes, it went nuts in the aftermarket. How about Dark Horse going with Star Wars (2013 Dark Horse) Lucas Draft #1 this week? All variants on this comic are SOLD OUT. This comic is the “rough draft” of the original screenplay of the movie. Seems like a little bit of fluff here, but we’re in! This will be an Indie book not to be missed this week! Here are a few more Indie’s to check out this week; Invincible (2003) #105 solicit reads that this is a big jumping on point if you’d like, Codename Action (2013 Dynamite) #1 (All variants SOLD OUT), Reality Check (2013 Image) #1 (Lots of copies left here, but Image Comics has been of fire as of late), Hit (2013 Boom Studios) #1 (Not many copies left to be had), Mocking Dead (2013 Dynamite) #1 (Same here, not many copies left), and Love Stories To Die For (2013 Image) #1 (Cover A sits with only 9 copies in the warehouse while there are plenty of cover B’s).

Whew!! That’s a big week!

Jeff Lemire takes JUSTICE LEAGUE north for JUSTICE LEAGUE OF CANADA

Fan favorite writer, and Toronto Native, Jeff Lemire will be taking over the full writing reigns (he’s been co-writing with Geoff Johns) on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA in spring of 2014, but with one significant change. The JLA becomes the JLC as the team 9and title) moves to Canada.

Justice League of CanadaAfter the dust settles from the JL vs JLA vs JLD in TRINITY WAR, and the heroes return from the events in FOREVER EVIL, some of the current memebers of the various Justice Leagues, along with some new faces, will head to Canada, fed-up with the U.S. Government, particularly Amanda Waller and A.R.G.U.S. and their less than above-board treatment of the heroes.

The team will be based out of the James Bay and Moosonee are, though much of the action happens nearer to Toronto.

“This is like my ultimate dream job,” Lemire says. “It sounds like a joke and something like this would never happen, but it is actually happening, and I couldn’t be happier.”

Lemire goes on to tell THE TORONTO STAR,

“I do want to create a cool, rural Northern Ontario headquarters for Justice League Canada, and I don’t want to spoil it yet. And it’s not a hockey rink, I promise. Although, of course, it did cross my mind,” he says with a laugh.

Lemire proceeds to discuss the nature of the book, and how strongly he feels about doing Canada proud.

“It’s not really like Alpha Flight, as we’re not creating a bunch of very Canadian characters,” Lemire says. “Like those characters are all almost clichéd Canadian archetypes. This is still very much set in the regular Justice League universe and the team will still have some of the bigger named superheroes, but they will actually be located in Canada now, and there will be a couple of new members who are Canadian. So obviously as a Canadian, and as a Canadian storyteller, it’s something I’m very proud of.”

As for the line-up, Lemire teases that after the current storylines wind-up, the various Justice League teams (League, America, and Dark) will have a shake-up to their rosters, and those that join upwith the JLA will opt to make the move north and become JLC. He says the line-up will consist of a mix of A-listers and some of his favorite odd-balls.

There will even be two “new” Canadian characters joing the team. One, the worl spanning, zeta-beam traveling,  ADAM STRANGE is a fairly major DC character, making his NEW 52 debut, with the slight origin tweak that he is now Canadian. The other will be a totally new character, a teenager who Lemire hopes will  “reflect a real part of [Canadian] cultural identity.”

DR. PHOSPHORUS joins the ranks of the NEW 52

He may not be as big a name as some of the characters DC has recently teasedfor getting the NEW 52 treatment, but DOCTOR PHOSPHORUS is on his way, and it looks like he has his sights set on Catwoman.

For those of you who help put the INVEST in InvestComics, you may want to check out Detective Comics #469 (May 1977), which features the characters first Pre-New 52 appearance.  he also featured in the UNDERWORLD UNLEASHED storyline, where he got better control of his powers in exchange for selling his soul to Neron. And here is a LIST OF HIS APPEARANCES in Starman, where he was a recurring villain, responsible for the cancer that killed original Starman, Ted Knight.

Are these going to put your kids through college? I’m guessing “no,” but they’re all pretty decent reads, and a decent boost to any collection.

Here’s what EIC Bob Harras had to say,

A few weeks ago, we showed you the design for Joker’s Daughter and teased that something evil is lurking under Gotham City.

Today, the treacherous underworld of Gotham City expands with the New 52 debut of Dr. Phosphorus. And if you happen to be a skilled jewel thief in a feline costume, I’d be extra careful about crossing paths with this guy …

DC (re)introduces BRONZE TIGER and CHESHIRE into the DCU.

On DC’s blog, they’ve teased images of the new BRONZE TIGER and CHESHIRE. DC EIC Bob Harras tells us they’ll be appearing in RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS, and that they are a part of Jason Todd’s past. IN pre-New 52 continuity, Bronze Tiger was a regular in THE SUICIDE SQUAD, and CHESHIRE was the villainess that was also the mother of Roy Harper’s ill-fated daughter, Lian. Considering Roy is a part of THE OUTLAWS, one would imagine the seeds could be planted for sparks to fly between the NEW 52 versions of these two, but only time will tell.

CYBORG SUPERMAN to make NEW 52 debut

On the DC website, EIC Bob Harras teased this image of CUBORG SUPERMAN by Kenneth Rocafort.  IN the original DCU, Cyborg Superman was Hank Henshaw, originally a Reed Richards analogue who became one of the four replacement Supermen after Doomsday “killed” the original.  In the NEW 52, henshaw (non-cyborg-ified) has appeared in the pages of the all-too-brief series TEAM 7. Will this Cyborg be Henshaw? Someone new? Harras doesn’t say, but he does tease the following:

Some of you might remember the last time a Cyborg Superman showed up. Would we dare revisit such a classic storyline? Hmmm. Well, never say never, right? As I’ve been telling you, all bets are off. Everything’s on the table.

Sorry to make your head explode on a Friday, but enjoy Kenneth Rocafort’s lovely sketch in the meantime. We’ll be in the conference room discussing … oh, never mind.
Happy Friday,
Bob
