This feature will focus on comics that no one is talking about. Sometimes for good reason though. There are some hidden gems among the non-elite here, but that said these are comics that have been long forgotten and simply not thought of anymore. Most of the comics in the article here are comics to be found in long box sales, but so much fun nonetheless. Some are actually a little tough to hunt down, but isn’t that the fun of it too? If interested in any of these comics, most can be found by clicking the red Ebay links provided in this article or comic cover if you don’t feel like hunting or you simply cannot find it. Will any of these comics ever be of monetary value? Probably not, but with the influx of television and movies these days you never know. Here are a few InvestComics oddities to check out. Enjoy and happy hunting/reading!

Atari Force (DC 1982) – I recall getting these super cool insert comics in my new Atari game that my mother bought for me. Not only did I have a new video game, I had a mini comic to boot! 48 pages too! Are you kidding me?! Heaven. Surprising so, these inserts are not exactly that scarce on Ebay. The mini freebie comic was written by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway, crazy right? Art by long time Spidey artist Ross Andru. Cover of issue number 1 by the late Dick Giordano. Issue number 3 and 5 cover by Gil Kane?! Wait it gets better. Gil Kane penciled issue #5 (Last in the series). A failed attempt to make it a regular ongoing series in 1984 lasted only 20 issues. A John Byrne cover for a feeler Atari Force Special #1 went by the wayside. And that was that, into obscurity they went.

Cloak and Dagger (Marvel Limited Series 1983) – This one time hot commodity way back in the early 80’s is not so hot these days. It’s a sad thing too. A unique team setup and potential to translate onto the big or small screen. Maybe some studio executive will wise up and see what a fantastic brand this could be. Or maybe not. The fans back in the 80’s sure did love them some Cloak and Dagger stories though. Top to bottom great creators on this mini-series. Terry Austin, Rick Leonardi and Bill Mantlo.

Sun Devils (DC Maxi-Series 1984) – Ah the good ol’ “maxi-series”. In the 80’s, not only did the “Limited Series” rule the roost, the maxi-series did as well. This fun story was brought to us by Gerry Conway and Dan Jurgens. 12 issues and done. Last known location was in 2007.

Camelot 3000 (DC Maxi-Series 1982) – When this comic hit in 82, boy was it big. If you were an aftermarket buyer here, you paid a premium. This series was so very hot. It was one of the first DC direct market comics. Nowadays, it’s that big tumbleweed passing by your television screen when Clint is about to put a cap in someone. The most puzzling thing here has to be why DC never capitalized on bringing it back for more. The fans craved it, but it fell on deaf ears. Probably a lot has to due with artist Brian Bolland maybe? Or writer Mike W. Barr? Maybe they only wanted to work together again on this project and it never came to fruition. It doesn’t matter at this point, but what does matter is this ridiculously fabulous story. Buy this series if you do not own it yet. Amazing writing and art here, an absolute winner.

Gargoyle (Marvel Limited Series 1985) – Nothing more here than a cool story here from team member of the Defenders; Gargoyle. Writer J.M. DeMatteis and art by Mark Badger. Oh yes and issue one features a Bernie Wrightson cover. Awesome.

Foolkiller (Marvel Limited Series 1990) – This fun 10 issue limited series was from the creator of Howard the Duck; Steve Gerber. Issue number 8 featured a Spider-Man appearance and cover. A good around 10 issues here with a cool character.

X-Men and the Micronauts (Marvel Limited Series 1984) – Not that anyone has really forgotten this series, but when was the last time you heard anyone talk about it? Exactly. An all-star creative team comprised of writers Chris Claremont/Bill Mantlo and artist Jackson Guice. Covers by Guice and Bob Wiacek. This too was a hot book back in the 80’s.

…Each and every week the IC Hot Picks brings the fan an almost certainty. A book that will breakout or be on the verge of a major or sometimes minor uptick in the aftermarket. Whether it’s a Bear market (sell) or a Bull market (buy), InvestComics has your back. Hopefully many of you heed this professional advice and pick up the recommended comics at your local shop. Yes the digital age is nice, but your local comic shops are the reason we all love comics. Support your shops fans, it’s important. There is room for everyone on this ship.

So what certainty does the InvestComics Hot Picks have this week you may ask? How about Invincible? If by some strange non-apparent reason you have been living under a rock for the past 10 years or so, Invincible is essentially the modern day Peter Parker. You talk about Xbreakout potential? This character; Mark Grayson is it. With that said, the release of Invincible Universe (2013) #1 this week will prove once again that this Robert Kirkman character is to reign supreme. How much longer before we see Robert’s character on the big screen? Television? Not so much. Invincible would not bode well on the tube. On the big screen is where he belongs and WHEN he does, look out. Yes, look out for Tech Jacket #1 (2002) for his first appearance to explode in the aftermarket when Grayson finds his way to the movie theater.

On a much smaller scale this week fans will see X (2013 Dark Horse) #0 sitting on the new release shelf. Although Killer X from Dark Horse is not as well-known as Invincible, the character stands to be a bad ass if he catches on. His first appearance was in Dark Horse Comics #8 (1993). In 1994 X appeared in his own self-titled book which lasted only 25 issues. The number one issue featured Rick Leonardi on pencils and Jimmy Palmiotti on inks. Don’t let this comic slip through your hands this week; Dark Horse’s version of Batman is here.

InvestComics told you about sex. No not the birds and the bees, but Sex #1 from Image Comics. Was it the lure of the title that made the first comic sellout so quickly that it’s now going to a third printing? Well all indicators’ point to this NOT being the case. Crappy stories in today’s market do not go back to the printer that often. The 90’s maybe, that’s a different story. In today’s market, fans and collectors are much wiser; they’re not going to be fooled with the prism/die-cut cover anymore. It’s about substance, about what is in the middle of your ears. Any of the hype issues; death or the president on the cover will eventually wane. So are you in the mood? Feeling frisky? Don’t miss out on more sex with Sex (2013 Image) #2 out this week. Remember, the story must sustain here to remain a hot book. No reason not to think that will not happen though.

Avenging Spider-Man (2011) #19 has its attention on the Sleepwalker character. The appearance of this hero will not boaster sales at all for the Avenging Spidey title, but it will add to an interesting story. We hope. If one feels so inclined to look for Sleep’s first appearance; one can find it in the 25 cent box at your local shop or comic convention. Look for Sleepwalker #1 (1991). Sweet dreams!

With the Iron Man 3 movie hype fast approaching, Marvel brings us Secret Avengers (2013 Marvel) 2nd Series #3. Why is this relevant to the new movie? Why it’s the “deadly new secret” of the New Iron Patriot. Yippee! Iron Patriot first appeared in Dark Avengers #1 (2009). And you already own that book…..right?

Rounding out the InvestComics Hot Picks this week are DC Batman Lil Gotham (2013) #1, Colonized (2013 IDW) #1, Kiss Solo (2013 IDW) #1,andG.I. Joe Cobra Files (2013 IDW) #1.
