There are many new story lines coming up on new comic book Wednesday…….

The Flash comic hits its 700th issue all-time this Wednesday. This anniversary issue will be numbered The Flash #39. The Tony Daniel variant boasts this milestone right on the cover like the other recent DC milestone issues have. Issue 39 or 700, whichever you choose to say, starts “The Perfect Storm” story from creators Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico.
Will this be the week Rorschach pulls the mask off? Maybe, maybe not, but one thing is certain, Doomsday Clock #3 moves forward, revealing more to its eager fans, probably leaving even more questions along the way.
Teen Titans #16; A “one shot” fill-in issue written by legend Marv Wolfman.
“The Power of Zod” part one; Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #37. Writer Robert Venditti and artist Rafa Sandoval.
New mini-series; Raven: Daughter of Darkness #1. Legendary writer Marv Wolfman along with artist Pop Mhan.

The Marvel solicit for X-Men: Blue Annual #1 states they will provide the team-up that fans have been demanding; Venom and X-Men Blue. Is this fake news? Could be, but Venom sells comics no matter where or why or how he gets into a particular comic. And with Cullen Bunn writing and Edgar Salazar penciling, therein is another reason for a must-read book. That isn’t fake news.
Writer Chip Zdarsky chips (no pun intended) away at Reed Richards secret origin(?) in Marvel Two-In-One #2.
The Amazing Spider-Man #794; “Threat Level Red” part one. Creators; Dan Slott and Stuart Immonen.
Legion #1 from writer Peter Milligan and artist Wilfredo Torres.
Inhumans: Judgment Day #1; Al Ewing and Michael del Mundo.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.
Last week writer Frank Tieri took over the writing duties for the Harley Quinn series. Frank killed it and this week Mr. Tieri brings the fight in Jughead: The Hunger #3 (Archie Comics). It’s Werewolf Jug vs Werewolf Hunter Betty. Writer Frank Tieri brings the goods as always. As does artist Tim Kennedy. That Adam Gorham cover is sure to make the “InvestComics Best Covers Of The Week” list too.
Writer Marjorie Liu Monstress comic is spot on. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check this series out, pick up the new Monstress #13 (Image Comics) this Wednesday. It’s a new story with more pages then usual.
Most comic readers and collectors have the knowledge of how the debut of a new sci-fi Image comic works. Everyone buys it and it sells out. This week’s debut offering is Dissonance #1. Creators; Singgih Nugroho and Sami Basri.
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny – Rose & Paige #1 (IDW); creators Delilah Dawson and Nicoletta Baldari.
Vinegar Teeth #1 (Dark Horse); creators Damon Gentry and Troy Nixey.
Abbott #1 (Boom Studios); Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivela.

Comic Broker Report – January 2015 (part 1)

 

Secret Warriors 11

Secret_Warriors_Vol_1_11

I was expecting Hydra to cause Agent Carter all the problems a secret agent can handle. But it appears the secret organization  Leviathan has taken  on that role.  So who or what  is Leviathan? Leviathan’s are the Chitauri ships first seen in Nova and the  Avengers film. But there is also an evil organization from Secret Warriors called Leviathan. Are they connected? Time will tell. Buy this now though. It’s cheap and if Quake become a fan favorite on TV, how long do you think it will be before more of her early appearances dry up?

Justice League of America 10

Justice_League_of_America_Vol_1_10
Constantine continues to impress and now it’s been announced that the villainous Felix Faust will be making his TV debut. Here is his first appearance.

Tales of Suspense 46

index

Agent Carter was surprisingly good. With nods to The Whizzer and Roxxon, the writers seem set on using Marvels rich history to fill episodes. Even Anton Vanko ( father of Whiplash!) makes it into the mix. This is his first appearance as Crimson Dynamo 1!

The Sword of Shannara

1165955

To date this is the only comic adaptation of any work from Brooks epic fantasy series, soon to be an MTV show.

The only other adaptation was a serialized comic strip by Gray Morrow from February to April, 1978. Unfortunately it’s hard to tell what papers printed the Best Seller Showcase. At this point I can confirm the Birmingham News and Chicago Tribune as publishers. The Best Seller Showcases were syndicated comic versions of novels by some renown authors. It didn’t last. To date they are the only comic version of The Sword of Shannara but it’s  likely that any newspapers that are found will be in poor condition. It is interesting to note that the original art for Morrow’s work was auctioned off in the mid 2000’s.

Trip Comic Book 12, 1978

index

Overstreet actually lists these so they do exist. Apparently issues ( 12-19? ) collect Chicago Tribune comics. If this does exist it would be the only reprinting of The Sword of Shannara in comic book format.

Note: Heavy Metal printed excerpts from The Sword of Shannara in early issues with art by Hildebrandt!

A recent post within an online speculation community inspired this next group. EC comics continue to rise in value as high grade copies become increasingly more difficult to find. Though the next few works are not comics they are key for both collectors and comic historians.

Ladies Home Journal November 1943

LadiesHomeJournalNovember1953Cover

Frederick Wertham is a historical enemy of  Sequential art. His book, Seduction of the innocent ( a comic collectible in its own right ) set comics back for decades. The mass hysteria it caused pretty much gave EC the knockout blow. There were a few publications that predated his novel and they are bonafide comic collectibles.

Reader’s Digest May 1954

ReadersDigestMay1954

Readers Digest August 1948

ReadersDigestNovember1948

Taking from Seduction of the Innocent we begin to get an understanding of Wertham’s misguided view comics.

Saturday Review of Literature May, 1948

SaturdayReviewOfLiteratureMay291948

To my knowledge this is Wertham’s first publish work on Comics.

The Adventures of Snake Plissken

Who would have thought that Marvel holds the honor for the first comic appearance of Snake Plissken?

Fox remake is coming.

  Other notable comics:

       Snake Plissken Chronicles Preview            Escape From New York 1:100 Variant

103552_20070826001551_large2403800

Fantastic Universe January 1956 ( first Minority Report )

first minority report
With a Show based on PKD’s powerful sci-fi masterpiece coming soon it’s inevitable that collectors will seek out early publications.

Rumors surrounding the upcoming Dr. Strange film have hinted at the possibility of the introduction of parallel universe into the Marvel films universe. Since Reed Richards is locked up by another studio how else would they possibly introduce the Negative Zone and why is the zone important? In Civil War Reed creates a prison for unregistered heroes called Prison/Project 42. As Cap 3 is titled Civil War it’s time to start thinking about important comics related to the event. Key issues concerning the prison included:

Civil_War_Front_Line_Vol_1_5

and Fantastic Four/Foes 5 ( first appearance of the prison )

64366-11090-97363-1-fantastic-four-foes

X-Women

X-Women_Vol_1_1

It must be the Milo Manara effect because this one has become a tough find.

 

Dread 10 ( Fan Newsletter )

index

This rare item has the distinction of Being the first publication to print John Bolton’s cover for Army of Darkness 1 by Dark Horse.  With a show coming it may prove to be the first appearance of Ash.  The only other contender is Dark Horse Insider 6 which I have mentioned before.  At this point it looks like they came out at the same time.

Ghost in the Shell Speculation

Wizard Magazine 44 ( bagged only ), 61

Let the film spec begin!

Issue 44 has the rare Ghost in the Shell mini comic and issue 66 is a later cover!
