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).

First, we just want to ask, have you seen our exclusive interview with the president of CBCS; Mr. Steve Borock? We ask him about the recent big news surrounding CGC getting exclusive rights to the entire building at C2E2 and ECCC and not allowing CBCS to have representation of their own booth at either of those shows. See what Steve Borock has to say about this right HERE.

If you’re a collector seeking new blood in the industry, a reader looking for a new edge of storytelling, then DC has a book for you this week. New Talent Showcase #1 will ‘showcase’ some of DC’s new talent. This comic is definitely worth a look, but that $7.99 price tag may keep some away. Don’t let it deter you too much, it’s not often fans get a comic full of new talent showing off their craft. Maybe one or two or many break out and become a superstar in the industry. Maybe this is their first work. So don’t pass this one shot. DC is probably testing the market here to see if there will be more books like this in the near future. Be sure to make lots of noise at you local comic shop(s) if you want to see more down the road. The last time DC Comics had a New Talent Showcase title was in 1984. Here are some of the names associated with that series as either early work in their career or their first work.
Steve Lightle, June Brigman, Javier Saltares (Early first work; The New Talent Showcase #10 -1984), Norm Breyfogle (Early first work; The New Talent Showcase #11 – 1984), Graham Nolan (Early first work; The New Talent Showcase #14 – 1984).

Check out three DC annuals this week; Batman Annual #1 with writer Tom King and art from David Finch. This annual, as DC Comics puts it, will have a ‘showcase of top talent’ within these pages. We love Batman, we love beginnings (number one issue), love the regular creative team, and we love that there will be a load of other talent in here too. Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five Annual #1. Three separate stories going on in here. One that features fan fav Harley Quinn. She dons the cover too. Superman Annual #1; Written by Peter Tomasi and pencils by Jorge Jimenez. Guest starring the Swamp Thing.

On the coattails of the popular appearance on the Agents of Shield television show, Marvel begins an all new series starring Robbie Reyes as Ghost Rider in Ghost Rider #1. We’re really digging the variant covers, but there is a solid reason to buy this comic on Wednesday. The first appearance of a new villain in a backup story. Here’s a quick fact, did you know that no solo Ghost Rider comic has ever reached issue number 100? Maybe this series bucks that trend. We’ll see.

Ivx #1 sets the wheels in motion for the upcoming comic series Inhumans vs. X-Men.
Marvel’s Deadpool Back In Black #4 Ron Lim cover sure is an eye catcher.

Black Mask Comics releases a new comic series and we all know what that means right? In case you’re a new reader or one of the few who do not know, most new Black Mask Comics sell out fairly quick and the aftermarkets love them. So this week fans get No Angel #1. Written by Eric Palicki and art from Ari Syahrazad. A story about a Hannah Gregory as a possible mistaken identity…..being a alien from space. Looks as though she takes matters into her own hands (see cover). The preview book of No Angel #1 is selling for a premium in the aftermarket. Jump on this comic. Invest wisely. Read comics.

Valiant Entertainment introduces a new member into their family this Wednesday. Savage #1 debuts the new character in his self-titled book and we think it’s going to be a warm welcome on new comic book day. With talents like writer B. Clay Moore and art by Clayton Henry and Lewis LaRosa, this comic is a no-brainer to check out. Look for early sellouts and demand bringing multiple printings down the pike.

Mask Mobile Armored Strike #1 from IDW Publishing should satisfy the need for all of the 80’s fans of the original MASK Series. The Paul Pope variant cover is stellar. A 50/1 ratio. The original DC series; MASK #1 debuted in 1985. IDW also debuts a new Transformer series; Optimus Prime #1. Looks as though an introduction may occur. Artist Kei Zama and writer John Barber bring us the action.
Revolution #5 brings everything together for the IDW universe. An important issue if fans want to see the birth of a continuity universe.

The Savage She-Hulk #17 (1981) – First appearance of Man-Elephant. Yep. At least this character has about five appearances in their 35 year history. Disney needs to use this dude.

The Savage She-Hulk #18 (1981) – How about one more ridiculous first appearance of a fourth rate character? Grappler. Looks like he may have also appeared in five comics in 35 years.

Fantastic Four #254 (1983) – As with most comic book characters, there is always one creator that defines the character to the point that the majority of collectors will associate that particular character with “them”. Batman/Miller, Spider-Man/McFarlane, Green Lantern/Adams, Nick Fury/Steranko…..you get the idea. We’re not putting She-Hulk on the scale of those characters, but the creator is the one we’re talking about here. This comic is the first time John Byrne writes and draws She-Hulk in a comic book. Byrne/She-Hulk.

Avengers #233 (1983) – John Byrne fill in issue. It also happens to be part of his Fantastic Four #254 story. John writes and John draws. He doesn’t do the next issue and he didn’t do the previous issue. What John wants, John gets.

Thor #334 (1983) – Jennifer first appears in a Thor comic, with her Avengers team of course. Three issues later though, The Thor character will never be the same. Going from a B-lister to an A-lister, but that’s another story for another day.

The Thing #5 (1983) – John Byrne writes. She-Hulk appears in several issues of the Thing, starting here. Appearing in a solo role.

Marvel Graphic Novel #18 (1985) – John Byrne gets an entire book to draw and write on the She-Hulk. Not just any book, a Marvel graphic novel. That’s 72 oversized pages of awesome John Byrne She-Hulk.

Fantastic Four #293 (1986) – Jerry Ordway provides this great cover of the She-Hulk.

Thing #36 (1986) – She-Hulk vs Ms. Marvel. No not THAT Ms. Marvel, the “new” Ms. Marvel (Sharon Ventura) that appeared a few issues prior in Thing #27. Sharon last appeared in a comic book in 2007, but this checklist isn’t about Sharon.

Marvel Comics Presents #18 (1989) – She-Hulk story written and drawn by John Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #1 (1989) – Origin retold. John Byrne start the second series. Writer/artist here. Awesome Byrne cover here as well. Actually, from here on out every single John Byrne She-Hulk cover in this series is stellar. The number one cover here still remains as one of the most iconic She-Hulk covers of all time. This series acted as the modern day Deadpool series does today. Breaking the fourth wall and complete zany-ness. John Byrne’s run here was simply a work of art in every sense of the word. If a television show ever hits, this comic (series) might be the place to go as far as speculation is concerned. We feel that the TV series (total speculation here) would be based more from here and not the first series. Again, we’re speculating and could be completely incorrect. No one knows. Invest wisely! 

Sensational She-Hulk #2 (1989) – First appearance of Weezi Mason.

Marvel Age #76 (1989) – As a growing trend for quite a while, Marvel or John Byrne loved putting Jennifer in a bathing suit on his covers.

Sensational She-Hulk #39 (1992) – And another awesome cover from Byrne.

Sensational She-Hulk #40 (1992) – The first appearance of Marvel Editor at the time Renee Witterstaetter as herself. Renee has done a ton of writing and coloring on top of her editorial work. She’s often seen at Michael Golden’s booth at your local convention. The cover here….wow. Why was John Byrne so into sexually exploiting the She-Hulk on so many covers?? They must have sold well to the fanboys. This issue is the most expensive aftermarket comic in the entire Sensational She-Hulk. More than the corrective color issue a few issues back.  A scarce book here drives up the price and one of the last sexual innuendo covers in this run. John Byrne officially runs into the “political correctness police”. Pushed the envelope too far according to Marvel standards we guess.  

Sensational She-Hulk #41 (1992) – The first time creator John Byrne appears (as himself) in the She-Hulk series.

Marc Spector: Moon Knight #41 (1992) – The first time Jennifer appears in a Moon Knight comic.

John Byrne appears in this issue and says that this comic should die (be canceled) due to the fact he’s not on it anymore.

Sensational She-Hulk #52 (1993) – This issue features an Adam Hughes cover!

Sensational She-Hulk #54 (1993) – The first official appearance of Jennifer’s momma into the Marvel universe; Elaine Ann Banner Walters.

Sensational She-Hulk #60 (1994) – The series ends here. It was a good ride. 60 issues. 14 years later. Penciler and Cover artist Pat Olliffe pays homage to John Byrne’s number one issue cover. Fantastic job here from Pat. Sorry to see you go Jennifer!

Terminus At Fenton’s Green an original graphic Novel by Markosia!

BookCover……..From our friends at Markosia!

“Terminus At Fenton’s Green” is an original graphic Novel published by Markosia and will be launching with an exclusive hard backed cover at the London Super Comic Convention on March 15th and 16th 2014.

It will also see a 3 part digital release culminating in the collected works being released for comixology during March.

The story is about a Victorian London gentleman that receives a mysterious offer of employment and is lured to the town of Fenton’s Green. He is trapped in an inescapable nightmare and must fight for his freedom and sanity. But he may be the greatest evil of all.

The book respectfully nods to “Lovecraft” and “Hammer House of Horror” in equal measures and plays with art styles in a “Wizard of Oz” way to maximize impact!

The book has been written by Adam Cheal (Toxic Storm, British Showcase Anthology) and Pencilled and Inked by Russ Leach (British Showcase Anthology, Unstoppable Comics, Indifference Engine 2). Colours are provided by Mike Summers and letters by Mindy Lopkin.

Comics industry star Sean Phillips (Batman, X-Men, Marvel Zombies) has provided the foreward and the book already has great DigitalCoverreviews from sites such as “comicsandcookies.com” and “curiosity of a social misfit”. Comicbooked.com will be running a review prior to the books release.

Ari Carr of comicsandcookies.com said of the book “this graphic novel is dark, disgusting, and above all else, brilliant!”
And Sean Phillips wrote… “This comic has it all, murder, monsters, mayhem and mammaries! What more could you want?”

The book can be picked up at the LSCC signed by Russ and Adam at the Markosia stand and all those people pre-ordering or buying on the day will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two pieces of original artwork in pencil that appear in the book. Markosia are also giving away selected books with purchases and Russ will be their sketching on the day.
The book is also on general release as a paper back and hard back through Markosia’s site as well as all good book sellers.

Markosia was established in 2005 and has become one of the UK’s leading publishers of graphic novels. Based in London, it has gained a reputation for producing a diverse range of comic books and graphic novels that cover almost all genres, with the highest possible production values.

Some of the creators that have worked on Markosia titles include ‘Midnight Kiss’ artist Ryan Stegman (Superior Spider-Man), ‘Starship Troopers’ artist Neil Edwards (Fantastic Four), ‘Of Bitter Souls’ artist Norm Breyfogle (Batman), ‘Dark Mists’ artist Lee Garbett (Batman), exclusivesposter‘Scatterbrain’ artist Szymon Kudranski (30 Days of Night) and many more.

Their varied range continues to impress as the company goes from strength to strength. 2014 promises to be the most exciting year to date for this dynamic company as they embark on a range of thrilling new ventures designed to take them to even greater heights as they strive to take their stories to the masses.

There is an exciting new range of titles coming in 2014, with many more in production for the future.

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.

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!

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 3-27-13

Okay back from last week’s Orlando MegaCon. And wow what a productive trip it was. Many things to show everyone (interviews), many signatures to giveaway, and a special auction that will be going on Ebay soon. More on that in the InvestComics Newsletter coming out soon. So if you haven’t done so yet, sign up to the newsletter to get an early bid on a unique item that will go to a good cause. It’s quite awesome.

Terry CroninAs for the interviews, check out the InvestComics front page to watch interviews with Terry Cronin (Students of the Unusual), Tom Mumme (The Accelerators/Comic Book Men), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), and many more coming down the pike. Coming up soon; Jimmy Palimiotti, Gil Gerard, Gail Simone, Eric Esquivel, Pat Broderick, and the Walking Dead zombie Michael Koske! ….Getting back to the King of all Indie Terry Cronin for a second. I inadvertently forgot to include the signed copy of the questions he answered with Brianna Floss on the video as a giveaway/contest. Check out the photo of the actual signed Terry Cronin questionnaire that can be yours to the right. All you have to do is sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter and you will be eligible! Sign up to the Newsletter either below (end of this article) or on the front page of the website. Write on the comments below that you signed up. It’s that simple! Winner will be chosen at random. And don’t fret, if you don’t win this time, there are many autograph contest coming your way! Sorry, U.S. residents only.

A special thanks to a lot of people at this year’s MegaCon. Sebastian Piccione (Sunday Knight Comics), Brianna Floss (Awesomeness), Dirk Grobb (the BEST unknown artist that will be HUGE one day soon), Rick Shea, Shaun Sorenson (Famous Faces & Funnies – for just being cool guys and having a great booth), and Shaun Cobble/Kirstie Cobble (Breaking the 4th Wall). You all made this year’s MegaCon a lot of fun and I appreciate it beyond words.

And because of the chaos of last weekend, The Breaking the 4th Wall interview with Legend Norm Breyfogle (via Youtube) went up late. Click right HERE to hear Shaun Cobble spend almost 2 hours with one of the greatest Batman artist ever.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=236]

This week fans get Guardians of the Galaxy (2013 3rd Series) #1. As spoken about already in the InvestComics Hot Picks #258, one can get the lowdown on all of the characters appearing in this title as well as the movie. Click HERE to get the scoop and a head start on these sooner than later to be hot books. Note: Rocket Raccoon is the book to have, get on that pronto. FF (2012 2nd Series) #5 will give readers the mystery of our favorite fiery redhead Medusa. Find Medusa’s first appearance in another FF book, but this one from 1965’s Fantastic Four #36. Not only does this comic give us the first Medusa, but the first appearance of the Frightful Four! This comic is brought to you by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. This explains the $750 price tag for a CGC graded 9.2. On the complete opposite side of the spectrum; Fury Max (2012 Marvel) #10 brings us the origin of Barracuda. The big guy first appeared in Punisher #31 (Max -2006). Find this laying around in the 50 cent bins. Not a bad pick up for the modern day Kingpin. Another week another death. Robin a few weeks ago and now this week in Uncanny Avengers (2012 Marvel Now) #5 we hear that a major character will take a dirt nap.

The new 52 presses onward with their reintroductions. Fury of Firestorm (2011-) #18 gets a redo with the villain Multiplex. Find Firestorm #2 (1978) and buy it. Not so much for the first appearance of Muliplex, but the team that involved with the incarnation is impressive. Gerry Conway, Al Milgrom, and Bob McLeod. And look at the awesome Milgrom cover! Yes this is a keeper. Another comeback occurs in Superman (2011 3rd Series) #18 with H.I.V.E. The first appearance of H.I.V.E. is Action Comics #513 (1980). Again, much like the previously mentioned, the creators on this book are the draw here. Marv Wolman and Curt Swan give birth to H.I.V.E. Having two creators like this on a first appearance comic is quite the find.

Mister X comes back for another round. Check out Mister X Hard Candy (2013 Dark Horse) #0. Mister X first appeared in Mister X #1 (1984 – Vortex Comics) and at one time was a very hot comic. Maybe the new number one issue will heat up the back issue market.

There’s a moderate amount of number one issues (and a zero) to check out this week, but there is one that will sell out quick and command bucks in the aftermarket. Don’t say InvestComics didn’t warn you. When you come across East of West (2013 Image) #1 this week, pick it up. That is all.

Here is the rest of the pack that should catch your eye and investment savvy. Time Warp (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1, Dragon Age Until We Sleep (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Honey Badger vs The World (2013 Antarctic) #1. Honey Badger still don’t give a sh*t.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for some very cool contest. And sign up to the InvestComics Newsletter to be the first on the block to know about the auction!

See you soon, invest wisely.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 2-29-12

Welcome to InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 2-29-12

Orlando’s MegaCon last week pushed back the Weekly Hot Picks, so let’s dive back in! But before getting to that, InvestComics has a lot of footage to release to you guys from the Con and will be getting that out soon, including the Stan Lee Interview!! Stay tuned as we will get all of the goodies out to you as soon as possible. There is no time sensitive material regarding the videos so you won’t be hearing any creators talk about a release of something that’s already been out there for 3 weeks. It’s just fun stuff!

Also, right before the last Hot Picks article there was a promise to cover an Avengers Villains list. That will happen, but just not this week. It’ll be here soon!

….Now a quick look at a few books to check out this week.

Image Comics has a little book out that has flown under the radar to some capacity for a while now. Not saying this book doesn’t get the credit it deserves, but the pure collector value will continue to grow as each issue hits. Invincible is conceivably the best, consistent Image title on the market today. It’s purity and its “early” Spider-Man like feel has makes this a must read. You also must own anything early Invincible if you’re a collector. Why the focus on this character you ask? We’ll get to that in a moment. First and foremost, a comic collector should definitely own Invincible #1 from 2003. This $100 book right now will give a huge return 10 years from now. Not suggesting one should even sell this book in ten years, in fact if you buy this book for a measly $100, hold on to it for a long long time because this character is poised for some greatness.

Back on April 2011, Image Comics released a teaser that InvestComics posted that included an African American as Invincible. The bottom tag read “2012”. Well 2012 is here and that same teaser is now the cover to Invincible #89. Just like Marvel’s Spider-Man introduced Miles to us, we have a new Invincible now too as an African American. Yes Invincible is the modern day Spider-Man, so you best jump on board before you miss the train here.

The best collector appearance comic to own as far as Invincible goes is the self titled number one issue from 2003. But as many may already know, that was not really his first appearance. The first preview happened in Tech Jacket #1 (2002) and his first cameo came in Noble Causes Family Secrets #3 (2002). Both of these comics are extremely affordable within the $3 to $10 range, although most collectors are jumping on the first full appearance which in the 2003 self titled book. Buy this comic folks, it’s a strong buy at $100 and once it’s in your possession it becomes a strong hold.

DC Comics’ Batman Beyond Unlimited #1 will be a quick sell out this week. Any new Bat book usually is, but with Norm Breyfogle at the helm here, it makes for a no brainer. Norm was responsible for bringing Batman in the late 80’s/early nineties to another level. Bottom line here, Norm Breyfogle is a badas* Batman artist as well as a badas* artist period. Check out Norm’s first Bat book in Detective Comics #579 ($3).

FF #15 continues on with Power Pack. Power Pack first appeared in their self titled book Power Pack #1 (1984).

Okay that’s it for this week! The Hot Picks will be back with that Avengers Villain Special soon! Check 2 cool covers coming at you this week below.

See you next week, Invest wisely.

Witness the birth of the first Black Lantern. Witness a new artist for a Hot title. Witness Archie go through changes! Witness Hot Picks this week with one click…

batman688.gifbatspiderbagleyfirstbatman.gifBatman #688  The new Robin gets his first training session in this issue. Is this the reason this comic made the Hot Picks list? No. The villains in Gotham made a new discovery about the ‘new’ Batman. Is this the reason this comic made the Hot
Picks list? No. Artist extraordinaire  Mark Bagley  takes over the Bat title for a 4 issue run. Is this the …..maybe. So with that ‘maybe’, look for a 1995 special one-shot from a Marvel/DC crossover called Spider-Man and Batman (cleaver title huh?).  The title of the comic on the inside says ‘Disordered Minds.’ Would your mind be disordered for picking up a $5.95 comic? Fun read from J.M. Dematteis and oh yea pencils by Mark Bagley. This is his first Batman work. Buy Bats 688, pair it up with the 1995 comic and
enjoy a cool selling combo.

Geoff Johns has brought Green Lantern to new heights. This week Lantern
fans are Introduced to the birth of the first Black Lantern! What more do you
need? This will be a hot book in the weeks and months to follow. Buy a few
copies of this comic. Sell a couple quickly as the series reaches fever pitch.
Hold on to a couple for a long time. Maybe sell when the sequel to the Lantern
movie comes out!
 Yes this would make for a great follow up to the first (origin) movie.

Archie Comics is making their move. They are beginning a crisis or event of their own. Archie Comics is stepping up the game and putting the Riverdale gang through the biggest challenge ever. Archie is leaving Riverdale and the first part of this event takes place right here. Norm Breyfogle will bring the look of Archie to another level for the emotional event. The crisis begins here and Riverdale will never be the same!
