Buy/Bid – Amazing Spider-Man #790

Buy/Bid – Thanos #12

Buy/Bid – Daredevil #28

Buy/Bid – Captain Marvel #125

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s no secret that InvestComics has informed comic readers time and time again that writer Charles Soule is bringing the Daredevil character to a new place in storytelling. This week Daredevil #28 promises to rock your world on the last page. We wait with bated breath. Ron Garney illustrates. Ron too….Ron too. Man these guys are fantastic.
It’s Thanos vs his son Thane in Thanos #12. The finale.
A NEW Thor story that does not star Jane Foster as Thor. The original Thor makes it into a new comic book. Thor: Where Walk the Frost Giants #1. Creators Ralph Macchio and Todd Nauck.

Buy/Bid – America #8

Buy/Bid – Silver Surfer #14

Buy/Bid – Marvel Boy #1

Buy/Bid – Thor Frost Giants #1

Buy/Bid – Moon Girl #24

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep an eye out on all of the new Marvel Legacy books. A lot of first appearances popping up and one is bound to break out. Amazing Spider-Man #790 may have a first appearance, so check that one out.
Captain Marvel #125 reveals the secret origin of Carol Danvers. Great Dan Mora Hulk homage cover too.
Marvel Comics solicits America #8 as the first appearance of Exterminatrix. Hmmm….that isn’t right. Maybe it’s the NEW version of this character. Exterminatrix first appeared in Marvel Boy #1 in 2000. This book was written by Grant Morrison. Art by J.G. Jones. That’s some creativity fire power there. America #8 from creators Gabby Rivera and Joe Quinones.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #24 features an appearance of the X-Babies team. It’s been two years since we last saw them together. The last time we saw them together was in Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX #4. Guess who the writer, artist and cover artist was for that issue……yep, Skottie Young.

Jughead Hunger May 2017

Buy/Bid – Suicide Squad #28

Buy/Bid – Jughead Hunger #1

Buy/Bid – Gotham City #2

Buy/Bid – House of Horror #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suicide Squad #28 will bring back two long lost DC characters.
As already said here, the new Gotham City Garage comics will be a direct take from the DC Collectible statue line. Keep close to this series as we could see an introduction or two of a new character. Gotham City Garage #2 will be here Wednesday.

DC Comics releases a horror comic, just in time for Halloween, from a plethora of comic creators; DC House of Horror #1.
The Ruff & Reddy Show #1 comic looks as though it’s more of an adult themed take on the two Hanna Barbara characters. Ruff & Reddy were first introduced into the comic book world back in 1958’s Four Color Comics #937. The current series will be written by legend Howard Chaykin and drawn by Mac Rey. Should be a good read with good visuals.

Buy/Bid – Heavy Metal #284

Buy/Bid – Iron Maiden #1

Buy/Bid – Sink #2

Buy/Bid – Spawn #279

Buy/Bid – Taarna #1

 

 

 

 

 

 

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
Writer Frank Tieri and artist Michael Walsh return to their hit Jughead Hunger one shot they were a part of back in May. That book sold out, quick. Not only will this creative team be coming back, Jughead: The Hunger #1 will be a regular ongoing. Yes They’ll bring it and Frank will do it his way. Not Sinatra, Tieri. He’ll do it…..never mind. InvestComics is team Tieri. Always. Brooklyn sticks together.
Keep a close eye on Spawn #279 as it teases the ‘evolution’ of a new character.
Hack/Slash: Resurrection #1. Creators Tini Howard, K. Michael Russel and Celor.
The follow up to the sold out number one issue; Gasolina #2 hits.

Scare Tactics #7

Santa vs Dracula

Mazscara

Gasolina #2

Eternity #1

Ash AOD #4

Buy/Bid – Sink #2 – JOCK

InvestComics usually reserves comment on a comic cover because it’ll probably end up in our ‘Best Comic Covers Of The Week’ post. Unless we feel it deserves a mention here because it’s that intriguing. Artist Pasquale Qualano pays homage to Todd McFarlane with his cover; Ash vs The Army of Darkness #4. Many artist have swiped the Amazing Spider-Man #316 cover, but we just wanted to point this one out. Okay one more cover to mention, Silver Surfer #14, Jack Kirby cover. It looks as though it’s on its way to a sell out too.
One of InvestComics’ favorite publishers graces fans with a great ‘fight comic’ this week. Check out Scout Comics’ Santa vs. Dracula. Tis the Halloween/Christmas season! Creators Ed Power and Melissa Dejesus. Also, Solar Flare, Season 2 #1; James Haick III and Branko Jovanovic.
Valiant introduces new worlds, new characters, new origins and more in Eternity #1. Creators Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine.
Heavy Metal releases three number one comics this Wednesday. Taarna will make her comic book debut after first appearing forty years ago in Heavy Metal Magazine #284. What took so long? Taarna #1 from creators Alex De Campi and Stephane Roux. Alex Ross covers. Eddie, from the heavy metal band Iron Maiden makes his comic book debut in Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast #1. Well, it’s sort of his debut. DC Comics featured ‘Iron Maiden’ in Scare Tactics #7 (1997). They never referred to Iron Maiden as ‘Eddie’, so yes/no on that first appearance. Look for Eddie and Taarna to continue their comic book lives after their debuts. Also from Heavy Metal; 1985: Black Hole Repo #1, creators Michael Moreci and Seth Sherwood.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
Comix Tribe follows up their sold-out Sink #1. Sink #2 from John Lees, Alex Cormack and Ryan Lee. The Steven Wilcox JOCK homage cover is red hot right now in the aftermarket.
Sugar Boogarz #1 (Cosmic Times); Michael Duron. This comic could be on delay this week.
Mazscara #1 (Red Anvil); Gary T. Becks.
Gao #1 (Antarctic Press); Alfred Perez.
No Room For Magic #1 (Keenspot); Adrian Ramos.

Ted McKeever, a main staple within the comic industry has been around since 1987. A tremendous talent with many books under his belt as well as industry stories apparently. This Wednesday fans get treated to a self created/character title called Pencil Head #1 from Image Comics. The comic is a semi-biography based on the comic book industry from Ted’s view. Some awesome stories to read in here we’re sure! InvestComics has been around for 10+ years and boy do we have some stories to tell too. Maybe someday……someday.
Symmetry #1 (Image Comics) received a nice welcome, now the hard part. Keeping the fanbase around after Symmetry #2. Check out the second issue this week. We have faith you’ll be looking for issue #3.

Who knows if Marvel will ever really get to that Captain Marvel movie in 2018. With a flop or two, the comic book movie landscape will change dramatically. You do know this will eventually happen right? It’s inevitable, there will be failure to some degree someday. If Disney hits a bad spot and then another bad spot, the game will change in a big way. Even after the first bump in the road, Disney will pump the breaks big time. Do not be naive to the fact that comic book movies will be around forever. Don’t get us wrong here either, comic book movies will be around for a while, for years to come, but to what capacity is the question.
IF Marvel (Disney) ever makes it far enough to get Carol Danvers going, it’ll be the first major female comic character to ever have a huge budget behind them to succeed. Don’t bring up Catwoman or Supergirl or Elektra, you know what we are saying. What Marvel is doing as far as their continuing and connecting movies is cinematic history. Never been done before. A Captain Marvel movie will be made to succeed (obviously). Succeed big while grabbing the young girls and teenage girls as new Marvel’ette’s. Disney knows what they are doing, they really really hope to get to 2018 with no bumps in the road. There is an untapped comic book audience that they will market. They’ll kill. Like they always do.
Now that we have your attention, let’s get back to Carol Danvers comic books. Carol Danvers first appearance was in Ms. Marvel #1 (1977) as Ms. Marvel. Her first appearance as Captain Marvel was in Captain Marvel #1 (2012). Then you have the first Carol Danvers in Avenging Spider-Man #9 (2012) as Carol Danvers, but she’s on the cover as Captain Marvel? It’s a bit confusing the way some of these grading companies do things, but we just follow along like everyone else. Anyway, these comics should find a home in your collection sooner rather than later. If we get to 2018 with no issues and Disney is full steam ahead, these comics will be sitting in a different place monetarily. Major upside potential here. Major.
Oh yes almost forgot, there’s Captain Marvel #1 coming out this Wednesday. Check that out too.

We really wish the Deadpool movie would come out already. Every week fans have to endure another onslaught of Deadpool variants or the character appearing on random covers. We get it Marvel, we really do. Stop already. So with that said, Deadpool #6 will introduce fans to Deadpool 2099. And a big surprise here, ready for it…? Ready?…..the new character is a female. You’re surprised right?! Right?! No you’re not. Neither are we!
And as long as we’re on topic with the female character, how about checking out the New Avengers #5 this week? The introduction of a “new” Avengers team will make their first appearance. By “new”, we mean new characters; Iron Mariner, King Hulk, Marvel Woman, Collapsar, and Captain America. By the looks of it, Captain America, Iron Mariner, and Marvel Woman (obviously) are all female. Interesting no? We dig it. They look awesome.

There’s a very annoying unnecessary number one issue coming out on Wednesday. Silver Surfer #1. Written by Dan Slott and art by Mike Allred. What’s so irritating about this one may ask. The same writer and artist that started Silver Surfer #1 from 2014 went 15 issues and ended their run last month(?) and will be starting anew with a number one issue. Why not just continue with issue #16 THIS month? It makes no sense really. None. The only obvious reason would be to sell more comics by slapping the number ONE on the cover. It’s ridiculous really. We’re quite sure Dan and Mike will provide tremendous entertainment, but this starting from a new number one stuff is flat out silly. Yep, we said it.

Mr. Bloom seems to be causing all kinds of problems for Batman in Batman #48. Not too sure if this story is in fact leading to the final Synder/Capullo Batman book (number 50). Probably so, but an end of an era is coming for the best creative team on Batman in years.

Dynamite Entertainment makes the Hot Picks article this week with Devolution #1. Rick Remender writes and a Jae Lee cover. That’s enough in itself to check this out.
Pathfinder Hollow Mountain #3 paying homage to the iconic cover from 1958’s Adventure Comics #247 by Stan Kaye, Ira Schapp, and Curt Swan. This comic is the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
451 Media Group continues to sell out every week. Sunflower #1 and #2 sold out, look for Sunflower #3 (with lots of sunflowers on the cover) to possibly continue the trend.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 7/23/14

Three very hot comics on the must buy list from the speculative side hit on Wednesday. Yes they will be great reads, but you may want to pick up an extra copy on each. On one though, you’ll have to do some very quick maneuvering. Life with Archie (2010) #37 is the quickie culprit here. This comic takes place one year after the death of Archie (Life of Archie #36). The death issue had close friends of mine, non-comic collecting, texting me about the death issue. So with that in mind, realizing that the death of Archie has reached the media and people who really don’t know the real deal about Life of Archie #36. It’s not really a death issue. It’s an alternate telling of his death. Archie will live on in the comic book world, in “real time” if you will. Again, keeping this all in perspective, the sold out Life of Archie #36 and the now Sold Out Life of Archie #37 will sell for a nice premium in the aftermarket…….but for an extremely limited time. Very limited. Cash out as quickly as possible with the fad of Archie’s death. Get the variants from names like Walt Simonson, Jill Thompson, or even Alex Ross to get the most bang for your buck. There are other very nice variants available, but these three just mentioned are good to almost guarantee a return on your money with extra to buy other significant comics coming out this week.

Significant like Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #4. Unlike the Archie book, this comic is a bit of a buy and hold pattern. It might be hot right out of the gate, or maybe not. Here’s the deal. Have we gone the route of other people bitten by THE radioactive spider? Sure we have. But these days things are a bit different. We get the attractive girl (look at that cover), we get a superstar Spider-Man writer at the helm (Dan Slott), we have Hollywood breathing down the neck of every possible character within the Marvel Universe right now (Black Cat IS coming), and simply put SILK looks bad ass. Maybe this will be an X-23 first appearance? NYX was not a hot book right away. Not until the collectors realized that X-23 was actually in that book that it went bonkers. The Marvel solicitations had no mention of X-23. The obvious difference with Silk’s first appearance is that we all know it’s coming. The key to this first appearance and how big it will be depends on Dan Slott. Will the writer build her up to be her own entity?…..Her own persona?…..Some serious character development to keep the attention of a reader? If all of these things line up there are a few things to consider here. A: She will eventually get her own comic, B: This will be the first appearance of any significant character HP72314 (2)out of a Spidey book in a while, and C: Amazing Spider-Man #1 a couple of months ago would be the first appearance of Silk. Well actually the girl that got bit by the Spider. Hang onto Amazing Spider-Man #3 coming this Wednesday; I see a lot of upside here with the new girl on the block, Silk.

The third must get this Wednesday is Ragnarok (2014 IDW) #1. Legend Walt Simonson brings fans a new epic comic. A sold out epic comic at that! The cover for some reason brings me back to Thor #337 (1983), in which Mr. Simonson was singlehandedly responsible for putting Thor back on the map. Jack Kirby….Walt Simonson. Get Ragnarok #1, if anything you have an awesome read ahead for you, but something tells me that this will fall in favor on the spec side.

….More upside, but in the reading department coming from IDW. Transformers vs G.I. Joe (2014 IDW) #1 is Sold Out across the board. Regular cover and variants! Not sure what all the fuss is about here. They first fought in 1987 (Marvel Comics) and they went  at it a few times after that. Some loyal fans looking for a good fight. Don’t expect aftermarket to be of any promise with this, but expect some butt kicking action!

Secret Origins (2014) 3rd Series #4 features a secret origin story on Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Superman (2011 3rd Series) #33 continues the focus on Ulysses as Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. bring more mystery in the background of this issue.

Supreme Blue Rose (2014 Image) #1 is sold out at Diamond. Better take a look at that one. IDW pokes fun at Marvel’s Secret Wars, Civil War and DC’s Crisis with Super Secret Crisis War Johnny Bravo (2014) #1. Great stuff here.

Owlgirls (2014 Red Anvil) #1 is about sold out. Check out this one on the shelf. Tuki Save The Humans (2014) #1 from Cartoon Books is also one to check out.

…And rounding out the week with other books that look like fantastic reads; Zombie Tramp (2014) Ongoing #1, Monster Motors (2014 IDW) #1, Star Spangled War Stories G.I. Zombie (2014) #1 (a Jimmy Palmiotti/Justin Gray comic, definite awesome read here),  Victorian Secret Midwinter Special (2014) #1 (almost sold out),  and Storm (2014 3rd Series) #1.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.
