It’s no secret Venom has dominated much of the Marvel universe within the last year or so. We’re not going to recommend to anyone to buy Amazing Spider-Man #300 (first full Venom) because not only is that an obvious book to try and have in your collection, it’s idiotic to recommend it. That said, Venomverse #1 will release this week and next week and maybe the week after with all of its reprints. Yes, it will sell out and no it won’t be worth jack in the aftermarket. Well, not really, lets explain. The regular Venomverse #1 cover will be the least of anyone’s interest. It’s the Todd McFarlane variant that will peak the interest, as it has in the past already when Marvel pulled off the McFarlane variant. It’s also the dozen or so ‘rare/ratio’ covers that will also peak the interest. Venom is hot right now obviously and if you didn’t know or see this coming, well you’re on the wrong side of the speculation business. You’re not a speculation guru if you were telling everyone to buy the first appearance of Venom……you should always buy the first appearance of Venom. Period.
Venomverse #1 also features the first appearance of ‘Poisons’.
Click on the RED links, Images or the comic cover to buy/bid from All available sellers on Ebay.
The best part of the Venomverse series (event) is the heads up we have given our readers for months now. One of these Venom mash-ups are bound to break out and when it does, you should be on top of their first appearance. The recommendations from InvestComics for months regarding Edge of Venomverse may finally pay dividends down the line somewhere. Even the past Venom mash-ups must be on your radar, which we covered too.
Also from Marvel this week will be Venomverse: War Stories #1. This comic and series will be exactly what we just spoke about in the last paragraph, but better. Better because Marvel knows where to cash in and they’re taking full advantage of it. They know fans love Venom and they love mash-ups, so why not cook up some short stories on possible characters that have not been mashed with Venom yet? Marvel Venomize’s Rocket Raccoon in this issue. Has he been Venomized yet? We don’t recall, please let us know without being a fanboy about it. If not, this is a first right out of the gate.
…..And ONE more Venomized first; Venomized Omega Red on the cover of X-Men Gold #11.

Marvel will fill in a little time gap between Star Wars The Force Awakens and Star Wars The Last Jedi with the release of Journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi – Captain Phasma #1. This will be the hottest Star Wars book since we first met Doctor Aphra in Darth Vader’s book. Captain Phasma’s first solo series will not be the last we see of the character, this will be only the beginning. Think modern day Boba Fett and you get the idea of the possible magnitude this character may have. So with that said, one may wonder where Phasma first appeared. That would be in Poe Dameron #2. This comic is cover price in the aftermarket and sitting in some dollar bins right now. Not for long……
The new Daredevil #26 comic may have a first appearance in it. Keep an eye out on this one. It will be hard to miss this issues Tom Lyle Typhoid Mary Venomized (first Typhoid Mary Venom?) variant though, so it won’t be that hard to ‘miss’ anything. The cover alone will have eyeballs on it. Typhoid Mary first appeared in Daredevil #254 (1988).

Ironheart meets with Iron Man in Generations: Iron Man & Ironheart #1. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Marco Rudy.
We don’t usually discuss any comic book covers in our Hot Picks (except for Daredevil #26 earlier), we save that for our ‘Best Comic Covers’ (eye candy) article, but once in a while we have to point out something cool. Ed McGuinness gives the fan a quick Wolverine history lesson on the Astonishing X-Men #3 cover. Ed’s cover sees a a young Wolverine, Weapon X, X-Men Wolverine, Old Man Logan and then his remains. Very neat and creative. Thank you Mr. McGuinness.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
There will be no doubt, the hottest indie on new comic book Wednesday will be The Walking Dead #171. The introduction/first appearance of ‘Princess’. This is called putting juice back into a book that needs it. Not saying Walking Dead is a dead (no pun intended) book, but it’s about that time this series need a jolt again. What’s been hot the last few years? The female leads, insert a NEW female character into a hot series and BAM, you have a hot book everyone is talking about.

Marvel Comics has brought the Star Wars comic lure to a new creative level ever since getting the rights back to publish. They have done such a great job bringing in new fans and satisfying old fans. However, this week IDW Publishing prints a new all ages Star Wars comic; Star Wars Adventures #1. Now if this was a new Marvel release, collectors would be all over it. Since this is an IDW print, we will see if the bar has been set too high and if IDW can/will reach it. We say give it a shot, it’s Star Wars, nuff said. Writer Cavan Scott and artist Derek Charm.

One certainty within the indie comics market is this; a debut comic from Black Mask, After Shock Comics and Oni Comics usually have a habit of selling out. This week Made Men #1 from Oni Press will do just that….sell out. Writer Paul Tobin with artist Arjuna Susini.
One of the hottest downloaded mobile games in history gets its own comic book. Fruit Ninja #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Will this equate to comic sales? Maybe. Will it equate to a sell out? Maybe. Will it equate to an aftermarket bump? Maybe. What we’re saying is that history has shown us that because a video game or mobile game sells billions, it does not mean the comic book will. 9.9 out of 10 times, it won’t. But it is Fruit Ninja and it does look bad as*. Written by Nathan Cosby and art by Ruairi Coleman.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy will make millions of dollars and Marvel Comics will be jumping in on some of that cash. A solo Rocket Raccoon comic debuts; Rocket #1. This rodent is so cool that he gets a ‘first name’ self- titled comic. No longer referred by his raccoon name, Rocket will blast off with comic fans. Written by Al Ewing and art by Adam Gorham.
This week’s Deadpool #30 comic is 80 pages(?). We’re not too sure if that’s a true statement from Marvel or it’s just a Deadpool goofy joke thing. If true, this is fantastic. It’s always a treat getting more comic book pages to read. A Rob Liefeld variant will be hitting with the 80 page giant…..maybe 80 pages, but Rob is on board. The 80 page giant size issue (maybe) is written by Gerry Duggan, art by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

It looks as though Marvel is trying to work Wonder Man back into the Marvel Universe fold, more so. The character has appeared sporadically throughout many years and now maybe is ready to branch out once again? Maybe. Check out this weeks Uncanny Avengers #23, WW leads the story. The first appearance of Wonder Man is still at a very reasonable price point. Check out Avengers #9 (1964). We think Marvel will be giving the character Domino the same treatment. Although she’s appeared in many books over the last few years, not nearly enough as an A-lister. As Deadpool 2 draws nearer and Domino’s stock continues to rise, look for Domino to start appearing more often in the Marvel Universe as she appears in this weeks Weapon X #3. Domino will be getting her own solo series sooner rather than later. You’ll see. Her first appearance is in X-Force #11 (1992) (so says the graded comic book world). That makes X-Force #13 (1992) her second appearance…….on Ebay right now for 99 cents and your local comic shops one dollar box.
A new Star Wars series; Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel #1. Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Marco Checchetto.
Marvel adapts the Zombies Assemble Manga into English. Writers Jim Zub and Yusaku Komiyama (art).  A Tony Moore semi-zombie cover too.

Batman #9 – The beginning of the new Batman made Suicide Squad team. It all starts here.

Deadpool Too Soon #1 – Deadpool puts together his own team this week. Not of the villain psychopath kind though. His team consist of Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon, Howard The Duck, Ant-Man, Groot and the Punisher. Maybe not the most sane bunch, but a team only fitting for Deadpool.

Archie #13 – The arrival of the new Cheryl Blossom.

Mighty Thor #12 – Think you know anything about hammers? Well maybe you do, maybe you don’t, but this Wednesday you’ll get an origin story of Thor’s hammer; The Mighty Mjolnir!

Green Lanterns #9 – This issue begins the epic story line involving the newest Lantern ring that first appeared a few issues prior in Green Lanterns #6. ‘The Phantom Ring’ part 1 starts this week.

NOTE. Please understand that when InvestComics releases the Hot Picks article on Friday that many of the independent comics may not be available on Ebay yet.

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: Swamp Thing #6 CGC graded 9.0 (1973). Anytime a collector is able to purchase a 9.0 signed book from a LEGEND such as Bernie Wrightson, there should be absolutely no hesitation in buying that book. Here, case in point is a Swamp Thing #6, CGC graded 9.0 for $99 Buy It Now with a Bernie Wrightson signature. There is no question that a collector must have this in their collection. Then check out one of our first InvestComics Creator Spotlights; Bernie Wrightson (click image below). We released this back in early 2015 with the release of our new site, so don’t mind the messiness in the article, just buy things from this creator, he’s a LEGEND. That’s it. Nuff said.

Once in while on new comic book Wednesday there is a comic that we know we’re about to tout with great glee. This week is one of those times. A story line that will aim to please and will have speculators peeking in as well. Batman #9 is the book that collectors need to check out this Wednesday. It’s the first part of a story line named “I Am Suicide.” We love that title. This title is a prologue on what is to come. Batman has to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve one of his greatest adversaries ever; Bane. The reasoning is to recruit a few of his foes to form his very own Suicide Squad to rescue Gotham Girl and Psycho-Pirate. The modern day Batman Suicide Squad team starts right here. You really need to get in on the ground floor and that ground floor starts in this issue.

Green Lanterns #6 debuted the most powerful ring of all; the Phantom Ring. This Wednesday in Green Lanterns #9 “The Phantom Ring” part one!

So many delays, puts the Dark Knight III series into the “oh is that coming out this month? I didn’t know that.” phase. Dark Knight III The Master Race #6 makes it to the new comics shelf this week with the tag line “Is Gotham ready for the new Batgirl?” Here’s a better question “Does anyone care at this point?” Delays and too much time between books kills momentum and interest.

What is it with the names of some of the new comics these days? Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #1? Okay. Why not just Cave Carson #1? So pretentious, no?

Marvel will put out an origin story about a hammer. Not just any hammer of course. Thor’s hammer: The Mighty Mjolnir. Check out the hammer story in Mighty Thor #12. We bet no one (most no one) at Home Depot or Lowes knows about this hammer.

The latest Marvel Comics sensation is Deadpool Back In Black. This week, Deadpool Back In Black #2 comes out and it will sell out like the first issue did. There will probably be a lower print run (obviously) of the second issue, so get on this if you want a first print. The Ron Lim Venompool cover is solid, but it’s the Salva Espin homage cover of Amazing Fantasy #15 with Power Pack (and a clown!) that wins. Anyone remember what InvestComics has said about Power Pack over the past few years?? Since 2010. We actually touched on it more recently; InvestComics Hot Picks #437 (August). Yes it will probably happen eventually, you’ll see. Just remember to give us credit and not to be such a nerd and take the credit. Thanks!

Sticking with Deadpool, he seems to be following in the footsteps of Batman in the gathering/assembling of a team in Deadpool Too Soon #1. The difference between him and Bats’ team is that his team does not consist of a bunch of adversaries. Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon, Howard The Duck, Ant-Man, Groot and the Punisher join forces. Like we always say, we don’t make this stuff up, we just report it.

Captain America Sam Wilson #14 features the villain Flag-Smasher smashing things up! A ridiculously beautiful cover by Marcos Martin adds to the awesomeness here. The hash tag movement Marvel is trying to start is right there on the cover for fans to see, #TakeBackTheShield. So what are you waiting for?? Start the hash tag movement! Oh and the most recent Flag-Smasher character first appeared in Deadpool #43 (2015).

Fans will learn more about Alice in A-Force #10. Alice first appeared in the previous issue; A-Force #9 and made a photo cameo in A-Force #8. That’s your Alice roundup!

Doctor Doom becomes Iron Man for the first time in Infamous Iron Man #1. Lots of pointless variants accompany this one.

Here’s some Marvel Civil War stuff;
Marvel’s Civil War II #3 is labeled ‘Classified!’ We need to read it now. What’s going to happen within these pages that Marvel is so secretive about? C’mon Wednesday, get here!
And speaking of secrets, Civil War II Amazing Spider-Man #2 will reveal a person to turn on Peter that he’d never expect. Who will it be?
Civil War II Gods Of War #2 will introduce the team; Gods Of War.

The InvestComics Hot Pick of the week goes to DC’s New Super-Man #1. Many fanboys cannot wrap their heads around the fact that Super-Man is an Asian character in this series. The ridiculous notion that fanboys actually think their opinions matter is comedic onto itself, but some of the uproar shows how far off some of the actual thinking is from fanboy comic fans. Adult comic fans accept the change and or just go with the flow. They’ll give it a shot, they like it, they like it, they don’t, they don’t. Some fans need to booster up a bit and try new things once in a while and stop judging a book by its cover, or in this case; race. Which is even worse.

This total new take on “Super-Man” is a refreshing one. Buy this comic and give it a shot. Writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Viktor Bogdanovic are the creators and that in itself is enough to make us want to give this comic a try.

DC’s successful Rebirth line continues. It’s such a hit that many comic book stores are limiting their customers to one one copy each. Here are two to look out for this week. Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps Rebirth #1 will bring back fan favorite Ethan Van Sciver to a Green Lantern title. Nightwing Rebirth #1; creators Tim Seeley (art) and Yanick Paquette (writer) are going to be responsible for making Nightwing a major part of the DC Universe once again. The Babs Tarr variant will be a sold out comic.

Any new Image comic proves to be a great story. Horizon #1 is no exception. Follow the story of Zhia Malen, her first appearance, and the invasion of her planet…..from planet earth.

Sabrina #6 from Archie Comics will give us the origin of Salem. Yes, the cat! Awesome!
Best selling author Sarah Fine starts on her 4 issue series; Reliquary Mayhem & Magic #1, from Jet City Comics.
Aspen Entertainment readers get ready for Aspen Universe Revelations #1! This comic will start the new look Aspen Universe and combine all of their characters. It’s Marvel NOW! And DC Rebirth, but from Aspen Entertainment.

With the release of the awesome Marvel Secret Wars this week, be sure to check out the two variant covers we are giving away, thanks to Infinity & Beyond Comics in the UK. Check out these gorgeous Greg Land variants below. Click on them to be directed to the contest page. Be sure to follow the instructions in order to be eligible! Good luck!

Some time ago Sensational Wonder Woman #1 was a big hit for DC and it looks like the latest Wonder Woman offering from DC will be a hit as well. Wonder Woman 77 Special #1 is well on its way to selling out. The Phil Jimenez variant cover is already sold out.

Guardians Team-Up #5 has Rocket Raccoon teaming with the Pet Avengers. The Pet Avengers first appeared in Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #1 (2009).

Suicide Squad will make an appearance in Flash Season Zero #8. Suicide Squad these days are a hot item these days in case you haven’t heard.

Secret_Wars_1_McKone Spider_Gwen_4_InvestComicsLast week the Silk #3 variant sold out while an awesome Spider-Gwen #4 NYC variant sits readily available this week. Not at all saying this means much of anything but……. InvestComics has been a huge supporter of the Silk character since day one and will continue to do so. Silk is the better long term.

If you haven’t heard the rant here on InvestComics regarding the Marvel Star Wars comics, here it goes again. Buy any and all Star Wars comics that are released. Not only are you getting some good reading material(s), but as far as the speculation side goes, you could be in the money rather quickly if a first appearance occurs. Especially if the character is to appear in the movie(s). Kanan The Last Padawan #2 comes out this Wednesday. A great read and possible speculative value.

Regular readers here at InvestComics know how high we are on the Inhumans team. A little reminder. Buy anything Inhumans. Anything. They will be the biggest team on the planet earth a few years down the road. InvestComics will put all their eggs in a basket and bank on the Inhumans being as big if not bigger than the X-Men franchise. Yes 100% they are going to take mutant teams to another level. You heard it here first, the Inhumans will be tremendous, huge, big, large, and any other verbiage you can think of to describe something blowing up in popularity. We’re talking huge here. Let everyone know that InvestComics said so! Inhuman Annual #1 comes out this week. Does it have any real significance? Not really, but it’s a number one Inhumans comic and having these signed and graded will probably sell at a premium later on. Granted the Inhumans are a ways off, but getting started early (as InvestComics has said here many times) Inhuman_Annual_1_InvestComics Wonder_Woman_77_Special_1_InvestComicsis a good thing. Buy early and often. It’ll pay off down the line. Buy Fantastic Four #45 (first appearance of the Inhumans). Buy it now. Buy, buy, buy. Buy it.

As first mentioned in this article, Marvel’s Secret Wars #1 will be coming out this Wednesday and wow this is going to be an epic story line. If you read any of the breakdowns onto how readers got to this point, it can get a bit complicated and you’ll get lost easily. The best, simplest way to put this is that the Marvel Universe will merge with the Ultimate Universe. That’s it really. Lots of craziness is to ensue, but we ready! Secret Wars comes with a nutty amount of variants, but the two we are admiring the most are the giveaways! Then there is the Mike McKone variant(s). Those are way cool.

Afterlife With Archie #8 has a very interesting variant this week. It’s from the movie The Shining. The very famous scene in which Jack Nicholson bust a hole in a wooden door with an axe. Sticks his head in the hole and says “Heeere’s Johnny!” Very intense and funny at the same time and the Afterlife With Archie #8 variant cover captures that exact famous scene of him doing that.

Dead Drop #1 from Valiant definitely looks like a winner. Look for sell outs here.

Must check out number one issues this Wednesday – Arcadia #1, Drone Fatal Error #1, Bodie Troll Fuzzy Memories #1, The Agency #1, Big Bang Universe #1 and Minimum Wage #1.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 2/4/15

This week InvestComics will begin a new way to help fans get the comics they want to buy either before they sell out or is featured in our Hot Picks article. With each recommended book featured in the article, fans will be able to click the link to be directed to Ebay. The link will automatically narrow down to the specific comic on Ebay, weeding out all of the nonsense that may come along within a regular Ebay search. By being able to click and be directed right to Ebay, fans can now either use the buy it now option or place bids if they so desire. It’s a great option to have this feature because now if you forgot to tell your local shop or your favorite on line comic shop is out of a book, you now have the option to buy it or bid on it right away via the InvestComics link. It’s also fantastic for InvestComics fans because you now can click that first appearance, reintroduction, variant, graded comic, or anything we write up and buy it/bid on it right away before other fans buy it up. So if InvestComics has a link in RED, click it and buy it!

Have you seen the new Star Wars #1 blank variant cover that InvestComics has on Ebay right now on consignment for Capital Grading Services? The picture is below and here is the description:

Star Wars #1 Blank Variant – CBCS Graded, Signed and Sketched by 6 Creators! Here it is. A One of a kind! Star Wars # 1 Blank Variant sketched and signed by 6 different creators. Each creator did a sketch and signed it. The creators are; Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, Charles Soule, Tim Seeley, Frances Manapul, and Ann Nocenti. This comic is CBCS Graded 9.6. A true one of a kind here! 
Here’s the link right HERE to the auction.

There are a few must check out places InvestComics fans need to be as far as social media goes. The InvestComics Instagram page is blowing up with various cool pictures. So much eye candy to check out. The InvestComics Investing in Comic books 101 (IC Poet Society) Facebook page is really the place to be these days regarding getting the latest dish on speculative comics. The page is blowing up with various members dishing dirt on some big books that have really taken off before the initial pop. If you are a speculator, you need to be there and weigh in. A lot of intelligent, wise, people in there. Fanboys not need apply. The official InvestComics Facebook page has fans coming by every day to check on some article posting’s and news, on a regular basis. So come by there too. Recently our sister company; Capital Grading Services came back from a show in Florida. The books that were witnessed can be found on the Facebook page right HERE and on the Instagram account. One book in particular is a winner, well two, but fans will see one for now. Stay tuned for the other “One of a Kind” book….

Star_Wars_1_InvestComics (1)

Star Wars #2 heads our way this Wednesday with some very nice variants. Not as many as its previous issue so that’s a good thing! Will Star Wars continue its hotness with their new home at Marvel? We’ll see.

Spawn_250_InvestComics Star_Wars_2_InvestComics Superman_38_InvestComics Wytches_4_InvestComics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few variants that speculators may want to get this Wednesday to do a little flipping with. Get all of this comics signed and graded (as always, must be a 9.8 or higher), then sell them. Simple stuff here. First, there are so many pluses that accompany Spawn #250. It’s a mega-sized issue that features the return of the original Spawn, there is a rare Scottie Young variant, and then there is the Todd McFarlane/Greg Capullo variant. Get a double shot with both sigs; McFarlane/Capullo and you have a great book. Superman #38 seems to have made very little noise considering what its bringing this Wednesday. The comic will be double sized and have the following; Superman with new powers, Introductions/first appearances (or maybe re-introductions), New enemies (again, maybe reintroductions), and ready for this…? A new costume. Yes, Superman will don a new costume. Click the Superman #38 link now and buy your regular and variant copies on Ebay now before your local comic shop starts hoarding them or putting a $10 price tag on them. Wytches #4 will feature a variant cover from new upcoming superstar Babs Tarr. You must visit and like her Facebook page right HERE. Thanks to the VP of InvestComics on the heads on Tarr! “She’s the next Fiona Staples” as the VP said. Yes indeed. And while on topic about the great Fiona Staples, be sure to check out her special wraparound cover on Saga #25. Fiona will be the artist who catapults Archie Comics into the stratosphere when their relaunch occurs. Be ready for Fiona to bring it. You’ve been warned already on these pages about her and Archie Comics. You’ve been warned…..

Weird and funny thing about Avengers #41 this week. It features the same cover as Ultimates #1 from 2002. So with that, we get a sold out comic? Yep. Be sure to be on top of this one. It smells like one of those hot books to bust out. Not much of an explanation as to why the same cover, which means something very cool may be happening inside of that comic. Be sure to hit the links to buy your copies of Ultimates #1 for 99 cents before it may be too late and also the sold out Avengers #41. And awesome Noto variant. Check it out!

Guardians_of_the_Galaxt_and_Xmen_Black_Vortex_1_InvestComics Legendary_Star_Lord_3_InvestComics_ Postal_1_InvestComics The_Ultimates_1_InvestComics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another group(s) will make waves this week. Check out Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men Black Vortex Alpha #1. This story sounds like it’s going to be some fun. It features the main villain named Mr. Knife within the arc. Mr. Knife’s first appearance is right HERE in Legendary Star-Lord #3. Looks like another 99 cent book to be had. If the story heats up, well then we all know what happens to that 99 cent book right?

New Zodiax #1 from Astronaut Ink is showing signs of great sales. A good looking story with a short print run makes for some nice possibilities no? Click the link to buy your copies now!

Valiant will have a hit on their hands with Imperium #1. Some great variants to choose from here. The book will sell out, so be on top of it. Another sold out comic on the horizon will be Postal #1. A great read and a fantastic Linda Sejic variant to get. Look for Grant Morrison’s Nameless #1 to hit the ground running. The very creepy/dark Rat God #1 from Dark Horse will hit the shelves this Wednesday. Read that with the lights very dim in bed at night. Then good to sleep. Report back what you dream about! The one time red hot Enormous book will hit this week with Enormous #6. The streak will continue with sellouts for that book though.

Imperium_1_InvestComics New_Zodiax_1_InvestComics Night_of_the_Living_Deadpool_1_InvestComics Rat_God_1_InvestComics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cluster #1 from Boom Studios looks like a great read as does Stray Bullets Sunshine and Roses #1 from Image Comics.

Return of the Living Deadpool #1 has a funny Ryan Stegman variant. And All New Captain America Fear Him #1 will be a good read.

Remember to click any of the comics in RED to be linked directly to the Ebay page of all the comics available of that issue. It’s a great tool to buy exactly what you want right away instead of hunting it down when it’s too late!

InvestComics was recently accepted as press for the first big Florida comic con of the season. Be sure to check out Shock Pop Comic Con and all their cool guest. Go HERE to their Facebook page and then go HERE to their website. Be sure to follow ALL of InvestComics social media to get live coverage of the show.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/17/14

As stated in previous weeks, there are big changes coming to the InvestComics platform. Changes that will benefit the collector in all ways possible. It’s been a 9 year run (going on 10 years) that InvestComics has giving the speculator/reader a platform like no other web site on the internet. There are a lot of sites that have popped up over the past few years/months/weeks that have tried to duplicate the InvestComics lure, but fall short because we have the library of information provided for so many years. If you don’t take yourself so seriously, enjoy the modern/bronze age speculative/reading aspect of collecting, then you will enjoy what is to come. Stay tuned.

Coming up on the holiday season here. A very busy life calls for a less busy InvestComics Hot Picks! This doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of comics to read and speculate on for your own liking. Check out what made our list though…..

All New Captain America #2 will continue to focus on the character Nomad. It’s just a matter of time before we see this dude in a movie right? Probably not, maybe, who knows?! Anyhow, here is a small checklist (you know InvestComics has LOTS of checklist too!) on the character Nomad.

Nomad_First_Appearances_InvestComics

Nomad’s first appearance was in Captain America #180 (1974) as Steve Rogers. Captain America #261 (1981); Edward Ferbel, Captain America #1 (2013); Ian Rogers. And Jack Monroe; Captain America #282 (1983). So the question to ask yourself now is, should I buy these? Well, all of these first appearances are very affordable. You won’t lose any money and Captain_Marvel_10_InvestComics Ms_Marvel_1_InvestComicsyou’ll get great stories to boot. The answer to your question is simple. Yes.

Another Captain to look out for this week is Captain Marvel. Ever since the Captain Marvel movie announcement, Captain Marvel has been extremely hot in the aftermaket. Captain Marvel #10 will have a very cool cover that pays homage to the original appearance of Carol Danvers from Ms. Marvel #1 (1977). Marvel is celebrating the 100th solo issue with the tribute cover. The best part of this “very cool cover” is that it’s not a variant. Regular cover here!

And speaking of variants and homage covers, how about Spider-Woman #2? The obvious money grab from Marvel is stated right on the cover! Stay classy Marvel. Anyway, this “nothing to do with Spider-Woman” cover borrows from the famous Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974) (Punisher’s first appearance of course). This variant will be cover price on Wednesday. Will it stay that way for long? Maybe not given the fact Rocket Raccoon is so popular these days and Amazing_Spider-Man_129_InvestComics Spider_woman_Rocket_raccoon_investcomicsit’s a great tribute cover.

Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #8 promises a mind blowing event. Readers will find out what is behind the Miles Morales legacy and who Miles’ daddy is.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #37 will reveal the secret history of Roy Harper and Oliver Queen, so fans of those two will want to check this out.

The speculative market does not remain all that quiet with new releases from Image Comics. The red hot Wytches will continue its torrid pace with Wytches #3 and Rumble #1 looks to be a nice pick-up. Ray Fawkes’ Intersect #2 will see some awesome sales. All of these Image titles will be sold out very soon. Titan Comics will have three number comics coming out on new comic book day. Check out 13 Coins #3, Mono #1 and Captain Stone #1. All of Titan’s new number ones are sold out or just about there. If you want em’, grab em’.

Titan_Comics_investcomicsSee you soon. Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/12/14

Wytches_InvestComics Spider-Verse_InvestComicsBe sure to stop by the Capital Grading Services website for new updates. Like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. An announcement on the first exclusive signing coming soon!

Not each week does the opportunity present itself that a surefire hit will surface, that one book that will be an instant aftermarket success. This week however, there is that book (and another, but more on that in a bit); Wytches (2014 Image) #2. The success on issue number one was so great, that it will indeed spill over to the second issue, I guarantee it. Get your copy quick because it’s already sold out at the distributor. The reason for the success here? Put Scott Sndyer on writing duties, put Jock on art and cover duties, which equates to a fantastic story. Add to the mix of a possible movie deal and you have instant speculation gold.

A book that may take some speculators by surprise this week is Kitchen (2014 DC/Vertigo) #1. A reverting story line coupled along with the great DC imprint of Vertigo makes for a possible sleeper. The $10 variant is already sold out, so pay attention to this one.

New_Mutants_Annual_1_InvestComics Captain_Marvel_InvestComicsIt’s not too often that an IDW comic cracks the InvestComics Hot Picks list. The aftermarket never acts too kindly to certain independent publishers, this being one of them. That said, not to take anything away from them! They put out an outstanding publishing line. This week IDW gives us a rarer original content comic instead of a licensed one. Check out Bigger Bang (2014 IDW) #1 this week. Looks like a winner.

Drifter (2014 Image) #1 is sold out at the distributor, but is still available at some of the on line outlets. If you are afraid you may miss it at your local shop, you should probably buy it on line before that becomes a non-option for you.

What more can be said on here that hasn’t already been said about Spider-Verse? I have been alerting you for months about how important this saga is. Gave you a heads up on the Gwen Stacy issue too a few weeks ago. It begs repeating though just in case you haven’t been listening. This Spider-Verse story line is one of the most important speculation Spider-Man series to come out in quite some time. This isn’t “One More Day”, or “The Clone Saga”, this is a story line that will introduce and re-introduce every single Spider-Man costume, person, metal armor, and even an animal BACK into the fold of the Marvel universe all at one time. So to reiterate for the millionth time here, what does this Django_Zorro_InvestComics Rocket_Raccoon_Variant_InvestComicsmean for the speculator? It means that there are going to be an abundance of breakout characters here. Old and more importantly NEW! If you are a reader or a speculator, you need to get on every single Spider-Verse book. Anything Marvel throws at us, get it. There will be introductions (and reentries) in books that you were not expecting and BAM the book will blow up because the character(s) suddenly are at the forefront of a new book, or appear in another thus creating a mad frenzy to find that first appearance. I said it from the beginning, the Spider-Verse story line is a huge marketing monster with tremendous potential to explore and introduce new Spider characters. Do not sleep on this specs. So with all of this stated, Spider-Verse (2014) #1 will do all of the above mentioned. The team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos begin the awesome series. There are two separate stories introducing two new spider characters. Yes this book, better yet, this series is one to get without a doubt!

And speaking of reintroduction’s, check out Silver Surfer (2014 5th Series) #7. There will be characters reintroduced into the Marvel lure that promise’s to blow readers away. Be sure to take a look and make an executive decision on whether or not to pursue this issue and the first appearances of our old guest. Oh and the best best part of this comic.Want to know? Dan Slott is the writer! So pulling double duty here with the reintro’s.

Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #7 will focus on the question; who is Katie Bishop? Maybe she is going to play a major role in the Ultimate Spider-Man universe. Maybe not. Either way, her first appearance was in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #12 (2012).

All New Captain America (2014 Marvel) #1 will be accompanied with 9 variant covers at last count. This gimmick will be short lived because most likely Steve Rogers will be back in given time and Sam Wilson will be out. A “new” CaptaiJon_Sable_Freelance_1_InvestComics Superior_Iron_Man_1_InvestComicsn America is not “new” anymore and it’s grown a bit, become tiresome and non-eventful. It may sell out, but don’t look for record breaking aftermarket numbers here. The $200 variant is the only outstanding book sold out book at the moment. More of the same with the other new book the “new” Captain America will appear in this week; Captain America and the Mighty Avengers (2014) #1. There is a very nice $3.99 Rocket Raccoon variant to check out though.

Guardians 3000 (2014) #2 will introduce a new Herald to Galactus.

A new Iron Man book will turn some heads. Check out Superior Iron Man (2014) #1.

Captain Marvel has been in the news lately. Have you seen that? Something about a movie. Anyway, in this weeks Captain Marvel (2014 8th Series) #9 all eyes will be on Lila Cheney. She guest stars. Lila first appeared in New Mutants Annual #1.

Hero_2014_InvestComicsThe new Hero Initiative comic Hero Comics (2011 IDW) #2014 will feature a new Maxx story from Sam Keith. Mike Grell will provide a new story on his character from 31 years ago, Jon Sable, Freelance. A hot book for a little bit back then. Check out Jon’s first appearance in Jon Sable, Freelance #1 (1983) from First Comics. And incidentally, First Comics are making a comeback with their new release Badger comic coming soon. They were great back in the 80’s. I’m sure they will put out some great reading material this time around as well.

An odd pairing from Dynamite Entertainment this week. Django Zorro (2014 Dynamite) #1. Yes that’s right Django and Zorro?! Sounds like fun! Here’s the most awesome part of this comic release. It’s written by Quentin Tarantino! Get a CBCS witness signature on this comic, score a 9.8 and you have yourself a nice book. We’re on the saddle with this comic. The variants are fantastic too. The favorite is posted here, Nice.

A couple of other number one comics to take a peak at this week; Deep State (2014 Boom) #1 and Resurrectionists (2014 Dark Horse) #1.

Don’t forget to check out the updates on the Capital Grading Services website (www.capitalgradingservices.com).

See you soon. Invest wisely.

Promoter of Connecticut ComiConn

InvestComics was granted press access to the Connecticut ComiCONN on August 15th-17th 2014. We are excited to attend this creator/star studded show. We caught up with the promoter Mitchell Hallock. Mitchell gave us a few minutes out of his busy schedule and we appreciate it!

Be sure to check out the Connecticut ComiCONN Facebook page right HERE for the latest additions to this already packed show. And go to the website to purchase tickets right HERE.

Jay Katz: The Connecticut ComiCONN this year looks like a big one. We’ll get into who’s going to be there in a minute, but how did you aspire to promote a comic book show?

ConneticutComiConn (2)Mitchell Hallock: It’s actually quite simple — I have loved comics since my Dad gave me my first Batman book when I was 4, that was 43 years ago! I was in love with them from the start. Gathered up about 25,000 over the years and would seek out any con around, but there was the problem. The last good size con in Connecticut was the early 1980s. So when the thought of doing a new and bigger one came around — it began anew. From 1 day hotel shows in 2010, to our new 3 day arena show this August 15-17 at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT.

(JK): How long has ComiCONN been around?

(MH): May 15, 2010 was the very first show at the North Haven Holiday Inn. So this will be our 5th annual show this year.

(JK): Did you ever dream it would be as large as it is? And what one guest(s) would you love to have at the show that you have yet to land?

(MH): Yes, I actually did see it growing. The proof was during Hurricane Irene in 2011, when more than 1200 fans braved a storm, closed highways, ferry and train and made it to the show. I said imagine if the weather was good….since then it has been and the crowds went from 3,000 to 6,000 for the 1 day event every August at a hotel.
My dream guest would be Harrison Ford – but that would never happen in a million years. The other one closer to reality is Stan Lee… so I better hurry up!

ConneticutComiConn (3)(JK): Speaking of guest! Who are some of your guest of honor?

(MH): This year we have several great guests filling that role – the art legends of George Perez, Neal Adams and a newcomer — David Finch fresh off the DC Comic hit book “Forever Evil”. We will also have greats like Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Klaus Janson, Denny O’Neil, Keith Giffen and others. As we are staying true to the idea of a con about “COMICS”.

(JK): The show is in August, can we expect to see more names added to this list?

(MH): Oh yes, I don’t want to show all my surprises too early. There are more comic greats coming to the show – artists mostly. And I have thrown in a few media guests like the Greatest American Hero, actor, William Katt and from The movies The Crow and Ghostbusters , Ray Park, Nicholas Brendon, SHIELD/HYDRA Agent Jasper Sitwell – or rather the actor who plays him on TV and the marvel movies – Maximiliano Hernandez. As we speak I am talking with a few other big comic actors. So stay tuned.

(JK): Do you encourage cosplayer’s to attend?

ConneticutComiConn (1)(MH): Absolutely! That has always been a HUGE [part of our show – kids and adults love seeing their costumed heroes in the flesh and the cosplayers NEVER disappoint! From 66 Batman to the modern Dark Knight, Poison Ivy to Mr. T, Iron Man to the Fantastic Four I have seen some amazing cosplayers and I cannot wait to see this year’s!

(JK): What is the one takeaway you hope visitors take with them after they leave your show?

(MH): That they had one hell of a great time at a great price — it’s all about value – this is not a “big city” wait in line all day show – or a money grab – it’s about getting together with like-minded friends, creators and fans and all sharing in the love of COMICS! ’nuff said!

Thank you Mitchell. InvestComics will see you there!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 7/2/14

Everything you are about to read is All original material from InvestComics. 100% Authentic. No borrowed material ever, 100% InvestComics.

First order of business is to reiterate something that InvestComics has touched upon quite often, but maybe some new comers to the site are not aware of. Although InvestComics is in fact the best speculation comic book website on the planet, another fact is that THIS article each week and many others on the site recommend that you read comics too. While I do realize that speculation is not for everyone, I am a true believer of bringing collectors and fans alike together. No matter what, comic book fans can relate to each other like no other medium can. Whether you are a fan of the speculation side or a fan of the storyline, one thing is certain; we will always debate questions like “Who would win in a fight, Superman or Thor? Who is the bigger bad ass, Deathstoke or Deadpool? Is Moon Knight as comparable to Batman these days than ever?” The list of debates goes on, but you get the idea.

So many times during the course of an InvestComics Hot Picks article I will be sure to point out that there are probably some good “reads” coming out that Wednesday and that even if the spec market doesn’t equate to monetary gain, you still may gain the awesomeness of a great story. Yes money is fantastic, reading this article every week will help your aftermarket sales, but sitting down in a quiet room, dining room table, the living room, on your bed and reading a great story is in fact immeasurable. We as comic book fans and speculators can coexist together. The InvestComics Hot Picks has always made a point to inform readers that there are books that need to be checked out for the mere fact of a great read. So if you read, collect, or merely speculate, we all have one common thing. We all love comic books.

15901_20051209091407_largeshazam1Now let’s talk about a recent DC Comics announcement. The announcement touched on a few movie possibilities for several characters/books. There was one standout……..Shazam. Some may not see the brilliance in the possibility that lay before them within the spec market here. Not only would the character fit perfectly on the big screen, but it would make for a new franchise that would correct any mistakes on any of the Superman stumbles. It gives DC/Warner Bros. a chance to really expand on a character that many know and many don’t know of. Everyone knows Superman. There hasn’t been another character to challenge anyone with a cape that can fly, minus a hammer, a batarang, etc. on the big screen. The time has come to get another dude with a cape that can fly and isn’t a “boy scout”. Although many fans will say differently about Superman being a boy scout regarding the last flick, but don’t get that twisted because when Batman vs. Superman comes out, Clark will be the good boy and the friction will ensue between them. Back to Shazam, DC will have an open season with this character. Just like Superman, he has been redone in so many ways that you can essentially pick and choose which Shazam will best fit for the big screen. There is no set tone for him because the Shazam character has never been taken that seriously. Superman however has always been reverted back to the boy scout for the screen (minus the last movie). So when it comes to Shazam, it will be extremely interesting on which route they will take. I personally think that Shazam will be a very big deal. A huge one in fact. I’ve said this about so many characters on this site and a lot of them have come to fruition. Shazam is a lock. Besides owning Whiz #2 (1940), the first appearance of Captain Marvel, if you can afford that book, you need to get the very easy accessible (for now) Shazam! #1 (1973). This comic is the very first time DC’s Captain Marvel goes by the name Shazam. A recent graded 9.8 sold for only $487.50. There are some Near Mint raw copies available within the $30/$40 range. An absolute bargain right now. You heard it here first, on the greatest speculation web site on the planet, InvestComics.

[scrollGallery id=355]

There are three sketch variants that really need to be on your radar as possible signature series books for your collection and turnovers. Rocket Raccoon (2014 2nd Series) #1 will be accompanied by a few variants, but the Midtown Comics J. Scott Campbell sketch variant is a winner. Get this $20 variant CGC Signature Series and you’re looking at a nice payday. Buy it raw even; flip it in a couple of weeks. You’ll make some cash on this comic easy.  A ridiculously gorgeous Jim Lee sketch variant on Superman Unchained (2013 DC) #7 will sell for a premium if you can score a signature and a 9.8 or higher. And speaking of absolutely gorgeous, a  $300 Alex Ross sketch cover for Captain America (2012 7th Series) #22 would be a nice turnover if a sig/9.8 is attached.

1365253_ful 1365244_ful 1361417_fulThe cash cow, a.k.a. Marvel Comics will cashing in on the Guardians of the Galaxy frenzy with new comic series featuring Rocket Raccoon (mentioned earlier) and Star Lord in Legendary Star Lord (2014 Marvel) #1. A bazillion variant covers on this one is quite the overkill here, but the Midtown Comics variant would be a nice pick-up only to flip quickly. While the Raccoon will see much success, Star-Lord will probably see a hot out of the gate presence, but will fall flat eventually. Then you have Guardians of the Galaxy Galaxys Most Wanted (2014) #1 which features a story with Rocket Raccoon and Groot. It’s essentially a Marvel Team-Up comic with the Guardians name attached instead.  The cover alone will have heads turning on this one.

Hey InvestComics told you about Figment #1 and now Figment (2014) #2 is already sold out. Not only is it sold out, but a major on line comic store is limiting ONE per customer.

Fearless Dawn Hard Times (2014) #0 will sellout by this weekend. If you want to search for a comic that probably has a very limited print run and features the first appearance of Fearless Dawn; look for The Bomb #1 (2006) (Atom Bomb Comics).

DC Comics’ Earth 2 (2012 DC) #25 will feature a new Superman. An African American Superman that isn’t Steel or President Superman.

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #12 will have a character “with great strength”, but have no idea who they are. Intro? Pick it up, find out. And who is Gruesome George? Find out in Batwing (2011-) #33.

InvestComics Radar love; Scum of the Earth (2014) #1, Enormous (2014) Ongoing #1, Oz Age of Darkness (2014) #1, 100th Anniversary Special Fantastic Four (2014) #1, Tom Clancy Splinter Cell Echoes (2014) #1, Deadpool vs X-Force (2014) #1, and Hack Slash Son of Samhain (2014 Image) #1.

Read and Invest Wisely.

Carpe Diem.

Rocket Raccoon – Checklist

Rocket Raccoon is set to make Disney a lot of money.  If they can pull it off there is no ceiling for this wise ass, gun toting animal.  But unlike many other Marvel properties that have been translated to the big screen there are few appearances of the furry outlaw prior to 2006.  The time to hoard these comics was 6 months ago and now comics like Marvel Preview 7 and Hulk 271 are nowhere to found.  Since the first GOTG trailer certain comics have tripled in value.  There is still time to find some of these for very little money and even if you don’t collect comics you might be surprised to learn where RR has appeared in the past!

Quasar 15

The RR 1980’s mini is finally seeing the  internet sales action its deserves.  So why no love for this comic especially with a Mignola cover?  Note:  Mignola also did the mini-series.

Contest of Champions 3

hhhh

This odd formula has since become a favorite of writers.  Series like there are usually full of both popular and obscure characters which might be why he’s said to be in this issue.  So far this one is not confirmed.

Rocket Raccoon in She-Hulk?!  What’s next, Dazzler?  This isn’t the last time RR appears in a She-Hulk comic either!

Incredible Hulk 272

Ok so 271 is a monster, we all know that.  High grade sales are now well over 100 on Ebay and only look to go higher but did you know RR also briefly appears in issue 272!

GOTG ( 2008 ) 1,1 2nd print

imagesguardians-of-the-galaxy-1-2nd-second-print-variant-2008-marvel-comic-book-5085-p[ekm]190x300[ekm]

In 2008 Marvel gave us the greatest incarnation of the GOTG to date.  All this happened on the heels of one of the best cosmic crossovers ever done in comics.  If you go back and read Annihilation and others you will not be disappointed  and it’s no surprise that Marvel has based it’s current cosmic plans around these characters.

Annihilation Conquest 6

Debate is already raging over this one.  Is it the first appearance of the 2008 GOTG or not?  Whatever the market decides this comic is a key origin issue and leads directly into issue one of the 2008 series.

Annihilators 3 Variant

f

This one is starting to see some heat but is still affordable enough to buy cheap and hold.  It features Rocket’s origin and is a tough variant to track down.

This issue is important as it relates to Rocket’s relationship with Groot and other members of the team and their origin.

Exiles 73 ( newsstand only ) Note: I could only find the Direct Edition for a photo so do not use the picture below if you actually go looking for this comic.  Newsstands will NOT say direct edition next to the barcode.

exiles73

There is a significant market for collectors of alternate reality comics.  Exiles was once considered to be one of Marvel’s finest comics.  Though there are few issues which hold any real value there are some yummy nuggets if you know where to look.  Take this issue for example, a rare RR appearance lies within.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 2/19/14

[scrollGallery id=335]

The New Warriors will make their triumphant return this week in New Warriors (2014 5th Series) #1. The series is on its fifth volume and maybe the fifth time is a charm? Well the original series from 1990 did last 75 issues, then the 1999 series went to 10, then in 2005 they made it to 6, then in 2007 they made it to 20 issues. So what does this all mean? Well it basically means the obvious right? Don’t expect a big run from this team. Although stranger things have happened, but one thing is for certain, this series will start off on absolute fire. Its best as a speculator to jump on this early and reap the most out of the market before the series begins its inevitable freefall. So where to start? Well for starters you should have Thor #411 (1989) in your collection by now; the first appearance of the New Warriors.  This very easy obtainable issue can be found anywhere at any time. The New Warriors (2014 5th Series) #1 features High Evolutionary. His first appearance is in Thor #134 (1966), an issue written by Stan Lee with art from Jack “King” Kirby. Thor #134 features a stunning 6 first appearances including High Evolutionary. A must book for your keepsake collection.

Four variants accompany the new release. The most bang for your buck will be either the $65 or $125 variant. Get either one CGC signature series’ (9.8) and flip them. Do it while the iron is hot though because as previously mentioned, the series will probably cool off quite a bit sooner rather than later.

Staying on topic with the New Warriors, the leader of the group Nova may have an intro of a new character in Nova (2013 5th Series) #13. It also features Beta Ray Bill. Another one of those comics that should be in your stash, but just in case; The classic Thor #337 (first appearance of Beta Ray Bill). Check it out.

Here’s the bottom line with the New Warriors folks. If there is success with the Marvel Cosmic Universe release of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, look for an expansion within that realm for Marvel. InvestComics has been saying it for years now, but the cosmos awaits the Marvel film universe and if it hits big, it’s going to be huge, Star Wars big. Rocket Raccoon will be the modern day Yoda with a serious chip on his shoulder. Marvel will seek to expand of the cosmos and will probably take a look at either Nova or the entire New Warriors team. More likely Nova here, so be on top of this.

Justice League (2011) #28 will have to be checked out for the same reason Nova #13 is getting looked at. A possible intro within the pages, have a look.

Jamal Igle will be pulling art duties on an all new Terminator book; Terminator Enemy of My Enemy (2014 Dark Horse) #1. Jamal is a talent, must check on this comic.

Undertow (2014) #1 from Image Comics will be sold out soon. Be sure to possibly jump on this comic for some aftermarket goodness.

Speaking of aftermarket goodness, check out X-Files Conspiracy Teengage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) #1. There will be a regular priced variant cover from Michael Walsh and a $25 variant from Joe Carroney. Get these CGC signature Series from both Eastman and David Duchovny; you will have paper Gold my friend.

More aftermarket goodness lies in Savage Dragon #193. The cover sports the “1st issue bold new direction” nonsense, but it’s the $10 variant that can produce some nice payback for you. The variant cover is a team-up of Erik Larsen and Todd McFarlane. Get the both of them to sign this cover (CGC Sig Series) and you have yourself a nice CGC book to resell.

Other number one comics to check out this week are Iron Man (2012 5th Series) Annual #1, Nancy Dragon In Hell One Shot (2014) #1, Loki Ragnarok And Roll (2014) #1, and White Suits (2014) #1.

….And finally, Dynamite Entertainment’s follow up this week to their successful hit series; Bad Ass (2014 Dynamite) #2.

Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Comic Releases 11/27/13

One standout comic this week could be Nova (2013 5th Series) #10. Last week with the mention of Nova #19 (1978), many fans were very puzzled by this. I received a few messages on the board, Instagram, and personal email saying “Nova? Really?” Yes Nova, really. If you haven’t been paying attention, let me fill you in a bit.

Marvel Studios are about to embark on a whole new universe of pictures and change everything. Yes they are going to change the way movie goers watch “space/cosmic” films with the release of one film; Guardians of the Galaxy. What this particular film will do is open up the flood gates to introduce Marvel in space; their Cosmos if you will. Yes the film will have to fare well in order for the initial steps to be taken, to progress. If all goes well (which it should), Marvel Studios will be on their way to building a cosmic storyline on the big screen as no one has ever done before (besides Star Wars of course, calm down). Now there is one point though, which has been mentioned on InvestComics a few times, what about failure? What happens WHEN, not IF, When a Marvel Studios movie does not meet expectations at the box office? This will in fact happen, it’s inevitable. It will be very interesting to see how Disney reacts to the bad box office draw. One thing is for certain however, the comic book market will be affected to a degree. The prices will drop back into place where they probably should be and level off. The constant influx of various movies and television show announcements are driving prices batty for quite some time now. THIS will be the crash, NOT the variants, 3D covers, etc. The hyperbole will drive pricing back to reality if expectations are not met in the mainstream. Would you pay $10,000 for a Walking Dead CGC 9.9? Yes someone did. THAT is what you call a bad investment. $10,000 on a first appearance 9.9 of Green Goblin, Lois Lane, or even Wolverine makes sense. These characters are household names. Walking Dead is a hot zombie television show right now. It will eventually run its course and no longer be hot anymore. Granted, good story, good show, but its zombies….that’s it. Yes anyone can say “it’s about the character development and how we follow them” but in actuality, no zombies, no show. Not bashing the show, giving a dose of speculation reality here. Spending $10,000 on the number one issue is a bit of an oversight on that buyers part, but maybe, just maybe I’ll be wrong on this.

[scrollGallery id=321]

So back to Nova, as explained Marvel Studios will take the leap into space. It’s a risky one with Guardians because no one really knows of them. Rocket Raccoon will be the star in this one, so it’s best you stock up on him. Anyway, Nova has been mentioned in passing by Marvel and through some rumors. If Marvel is reaching out into the space universe, what’s not to think Nova won’t be a part of that? Same with Warlock, Silver Surfer, Death, and maybe Rom! Remember him? How cool would that be to have a Rom movie? Yes wrestling with that toy company can get dicey, but what Disney wants, Disney gets. What it all boils down to is making sure as a speculator that you have all of your Cosmic ducks in a row. Pick up the rare first appearance, those odd number one issues, the status quo change books, and the rare Thanos variants. It will pay dividends down the line IF the Guardians of the Galaxy movie does well. Nova (2013 5th Series) #10 will play pretend and solict this comic as the 100th issue. Gotta love the restarts, five of them for Nova to be exact here. The comic will come with all sorts of variants. The prize variant will be the JG Jones Incentive. A $60 book that can see some decent gains if handled properly. Nova #10 will star the NEW New Warriors (another potential space team down the road). Check out the first appearance of the New Warriors (“old team”) in Thor #411 (1989). A must own.

We like intros don’t we? Of course we do! Ultimate Spider-Man (2012 Marvel Universe) #20 will introduce a new villain named Whirlwind, so check that out. Kick-Ass 3 (2013 Marvel) #5 will do some introducing themselves with a new villain team. Infinity Hunt (2013) #4 plants the seeds of Marvel’s next major event. Are we tired yet of these major events? And speaking of Infinity, Infinity (2013 Marvel) #6 will conclude with an oversized issue as Thanos fights everyone! And incidentally, Iron Man #55 is Still a must buy. Avengers Assemble (2012) #21 hints at the team Inhumans. The Inhumans are about to have a breakout year next year. Get on top of Fantastic Four #45 (1965) for the first appearance of the Inhumans. Staying on topic with the Avengers, Avengers Arena (2012) #18 will see its final issue this week. With more death and a launching pad for something else. Something major will be happening in All New X-Men (2012) #19 so be sure to glance through that book. Damian Son of Batman (2013) #2 is sold out for the most part on the retail level. The variants are completely sold out. The Andy Kubert black and white variant would be a nice CGC sig series flip book. Forever Evil Argus (2013) #2 will highlight Deathstroke. One of the baddest dudes in the DC Universe. If you’re a regular reader of this column each week, you already know that InvestComics is a huge Deathstroke supporter. I have always felt that the Deathstroke character is on the cusp of some serious play, but DC doesn’t know exactly what to do with him (i.e. Nightwing). Yes they finally put him on television (sparingly), but that’s not enough. Get this guy going already. Bigger role on the show, movie appearances, chop chop DC! A huge recommendation throughout the years on InvestComics has been The New Teen Titans #2 (1980) and it will continue to be in BUY mode with InvestComics. And for those keeping score at home, Forever Evil Argus #2 variant is sold out, which means absolutely nothing on the speculator side of things. Geoff Johns will be hitting all out on Aquaman (2011 5th Series) #25. The conclusion to the “Death of a King” storyline. The new Superior Spider-Man event begins this week; The Darkest Hour in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #22. Venom will have his first run in with Superior Spidey in this issue. This should be very interesting. In the “in case you missed it” department, DC will release Sandman Overture (2013) Special Edition #1. The issue will feature a bunch of useless extras if you’re interested.

IDW will bring back a cult favorite in Sam Keith’s Maxx Maxximized (2013 IDW) #1. A collector can buy the first appearance of Maxx in the overprinted Darker Image #1 (1993).

Black Science (2013 Image) #1 will be THE Image Comic to grab this week. Already sold out at the retail level, but the $10 Midtown Comics variant will be the one to get if this comic makes an impact in the aftermarket. IDW’s Mr Peabody and Sherman (2013 IDW) #1 variant is sold out. Never Ending (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Quest (2013 Zenescope) #1, and Sledgehammer 44 Lightning War (2013) #1 are all on the verge of selling out.

Invest wisely,

The Dawning #1

Foreign Comics – Checklist

Collecting both original and reprint foreign comics can be a daunting task.  Editions are as rare for Moebius prestige format comics as they are for key 2000 A.D. issues, Grant Morrison’s first published work or high grade copies of Warrior Magazine.   Beyond this list there are a considerable number of collectible foreign comics.  Currently these are my recommendations:

Disclaimer:

Remember, the internet comic collecting community feasts on the slow and there is also no guarantee that any of what follows will be worth anything more than a damn to you.  Though there is a viable marketplace for the buying and selling of sequential art collectibles,  do not forget that it is a competitive and volatile realm.

Click on any of the RED links within the article to buy/bid on the comics directly from Ebay right now. From ALL available Ebay sellers.

 

Transformers Weekly Magazine 7

92038_20070707231354_large

If Age of Extinction incorporates the Dinobots look for rare appearances to dry up on the back issue market.  Their first appearance is in issue 4 ( March 1985 ) of the Marvel US series.  This issue predates that one but features the same cover?  I have yet to confirm if this is the earliest appearance of the Dinobots.

Titans 5

2113757-700970

Reprinting GOTG’s first appearance, this long running series represents the gold standard in foreign comic printing:  This French comic series collects Skull The Slayer (1975) #1,  Doc Savage (1972)  2, Super Heroes (1967) 18 and The Champions (1975) #2.  The Guardians also appear in other issues from this series.

Titans 155

titans 155 deadpool

There may be some of these still available on Ebay but it’s going to be tough to get in high grade. The Ultron cover is just another reason to buy and hold this printing of New Mutants 98!

Transformers 113

91609_20100216065045_large

 

Death’s Head has seen his ups and downs in popularity over the years.  In the mainstream Marvel U he has recently reemerged with some upgrades.  Time will tell if his first appearance will rise in value but with his cult-like following this issue will always be worth owning.  Issue 117 is worth a look too!

Captain Britain 8 & Super Spider-Man and Captain Britain 243

Captain Britian 8 First Psylocke103664_20111029103429_large

There is some debate as to when Psylocke first debuted but Betsy Braddock first appeared in this issue of Captain Britain.  I have included this issue of SSM & CB because is holds a rare early appearance of Betsy and is scarce in its own right.

Mighty World of Marvel 197,198

Mighty World of Marvel Uk 198 1st Wolverine

We all know how much Wolverine’s first and cameo are worth.  The MWOM reprinted those momentous issues and like others on this list have become nearly impossible to track down.

Star Wars Weekly: 73,94,95,96, 117 ( last before change in title ),

2288891-sw1172288819-sw73 2288847-sw94 2288849-sw95 2288850-sw96

These over sized comics  should appeal to fans of  both the galaxy far, far away and the Guardians of the Galaxy!   With low print runs, and appearances by other Marvel characters  such as Warlock and the Micronauts,  these comics may be harder to find thanks to a more broad demand.

L’Incroyable Hulk 130/131

Rocket Raccoon app

This French printing of The Incredible Hulk collects both issues of the regular Marvel series 271,272.  Why is this important?  Issue 271 is the first appearance of Rocket Raccoon in color and in a comic ( see Marvel Preview 7 for his first appearance ).  Unbeknownst to many Rocket also appeared in issue 272 via flashback.  This issue collects those two issues but oddly is printed in black and white.  To my knowledge it is the only publication that prints the first Rocket Raccoon color pages with no color.

Empire Strikes Back Monthly: 151,154,155,156, 159

TESBMonthly156

Alan Moore’s incredible Star Wars tales were originally printed in these amazing UK comics and later collected in 2 regular size editions from Dark Horse.  They remain some of the best stories from a universe that has seen its share of poor writing.

Click on any of the RED links within the article to buy/bid on the comics directly from Ebay right now. From ALL available Ebay sellers.

Batman Legends 13

066c3a53-0084-4a25-81fc-8d36a0ad149c

The UK Batman Legends series reprinted collected issues from Vol. 1 of Batman.  In America the 666 Batman issue is not that easy to come by and the same holds true for this UK version.

Daredevils 7

This one makes my list  twice this month.  The white cover and mag size make finding one  in high grade a tough task.   Time will tell if Marvel’s reprinting will reignite the popularity of the character.  If Miracleman were to ever be incorporated into the mainstream Marvel universe, enjoyed by both critics and the larger fanbase, and becomes a worthy marketing property-then this comic will explode in value.  The odds of all that happening are not good but this book is still super scarce.

Click on any of the RED links within the article to buy/bid on the comics directly from Ebay right now. From ALL available Ebay sellers.

UK price variants,  other overseas  price variants and Canadian pricing variants also hold value depending on rarity and issue #.  There is an extensive collecting community when it comes to these rare issues  much like Bronze age price variants and regional variants here is the states!

Good Luck!

Please donate to creator Bill Mantlo…..

Growing up in the 80’s was the absolute best time of my life as a teenager. It was Bruce Springsteen, vibrant neon colors, baseball, and comic books. I always seemed to revert back to the comics for the peace of mind, the escape if you will. There were the usual suspects as far as creator’s go. Perez, Starlin, Byrne, Zeck, and Bill Mantlo. Mr. Mantlo brought some of the most riveting comic book writing to the genre back then for me. Comics like Contest of the Champions, Cloak and Dagger, Micronaunts, The Incredible Hulk, and one of my personal favorites of all time; ROM. He also was the co-creator of a character that will probably become the next biggest character to come out of the movies in a long time; Rocket Raccoon. Mr. Mantlo had his hand in many many more creations and comics than I could possibly list here.

Rom_ #1_Cloak_and_Dagger_ #1_Rocket_Raccoon_#1

Mr. Mantlo suffered a debilitating brain injury when he was struck by a car while rollerblading in 1992. Bill’s caregiver Michael needs our help. Here’s the thing folks, I write this because I honestly feel a personal connection with Mr. Mantlo. He introduced worlds to me that I escaped to each time I read his stories. I am grateful to him for that. He needs our help now. The comic book community’s help, the fans, the creators, the collectors, it doesn’t matter.

Often times InvestComics speaks about the worth of a comic book, the value. This here is about quality and value as well. Bill Mantlo needs his quality of life. Thanks to a friend that pointed out an article to me that creator Greg Pak wrote on his blog about Bill Mantlo needing help, I can now help expand the awareness. Jump to the Greg Pak blog by clicking HERE to get more insight on this story, donate as well as Mr. Pak’s own words. Donating whatever you can would help tremendously.

Our thoughts are with you Mr. Mantlo.

Nova – Checklist

Nova Checklist.

Marvel’s cosmic epic The Guardians of the Galaxy is either shaping up to be the most ambitious comic film of all time or destined to be a rare mistep by Disney.   The truth is, it is hard to tell at this point which way it will all go down.  Recent news includes conformation of…

this guy as Yondu.  😀

Michael-Rooker

but this woman as Nova Prime???

f900c44c-282f-3542-b05a-96b192b94c87

So who knows?  But for purists some developments are signs of a troubled adaptation.  For every John C. Reilly as Rhomman Dey there is a Cosmo tease from the director that simply annoys or another WWE has-been cast as the muscle ( Drax the Destroyer ).

In the past I have highlighted some of the best GOTG comics to invest in.  With conformation of the Nova Corps ( FF 206,208 ) Nova appears to be a player and that’s great news.  Though his keys are limited here are some notable appearances.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Fantastic Four Annual 12

This one is Nova ( Richard Rider’s ) first appearance outside his own title.  Wolfman writing the Inhumans make it worth the price in high grade!

46903_20110516083936_large

Daredevil 142

Another Wolfman tale featuring Nova in a title you normally wouldn’t expect to see him in.

7068_20070206084253_large

ROM 24

If you have never read ROM I demand you buy the full run and spend the weekend making up for past mistakes.   Like the Micronauts there are a few keys in the series.  #75 ( last issue ) and this early Nova appearance.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

29859_20060406181248_large

New Warriors 74, 75

The last issue of this Marvel Series saw the sales of the once mighty team book drop sharply.  As usual low print runs for later issues of a cancelled series often leads to significant increases in value.  Expect these  to do the same when the film comes out.

31444_20060501221632_large     31445_20060315085408_large

Nova 7

Another last issues with a low print run and a Larsen Venom cover!  Buy buy buy.

42643_20060524043400_large

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

The Savage She Hulk 100

How many comics do you think are out there that have both Rocket Raccoon and Nova in them?  Oh and it’s written by Dan Slott with a Greg Horn cover!

22294_20060107100437_large

Annihilation Conquest 6

I will continue to recommend this one over and over again.  Collectors are fast realizing the importance of this issue.  The formation of this team has everything to do with the movie.  One can even argue that it’s importance far surpasses the first appearance of the original team which often sells for over 100 at auction.

125016_20080416224122_large

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Thanos Imperative: Ignition

This one-Shot has a breathtaking cover and is getting harder to find as are all Thanos appearances.  See my  report on the collectible Thanos some time before the movie hits.

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!

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.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 2-27-13

IC-Publication-LogoIf you haven’t seen the latest InvestComics Newsletter, you should check it out right HERE. Big news coming out of the InvestComics camp! More to follow….

The new Breaking the 4th Wall Podcast here on InvestComics will have the Joe Harris interview! Be sure to check that out!

One consistency you will find these days here on InvestComics and in the Marvel Comics world these days can be summed up in 4 words; Guardians of the Galaxy. This week Marvel begins their quest to shove this team down our throats until the movie comes out in 2014. Although it may seem like a long time from now; hell we’re into the third month of 2013 already! It comes quick and the word quick should be in your collector vocabulary when it comes to any of these characters destined to appear in the movie. Marvel’s “primer” if you will comes out this week by the name Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1. With creators Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven attached to this project, it’s very safe to assume here that there will be quick sellouts here with demand in the aftermarket. Although Marvel pulled out some heavyweights for this book, is the appearance of Iron Man in this book a little bit of an uncertainty factor? At least it’s not Wolverine!

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=228]

The team within these pages and the movie for the most part are still out there to be had as far as the collectors market is concerned. With that said, the longer you wait, well the harder it’ll be to get your bid in. Prices will be going up and up fans, no slowing down here…..for now. Bad publicly, delays, budget woes, and a bad trailer could change things very quick to the downside. Be wary here. Be a smart investor, know your market. Pay attention.

The following characters appearing in the new comic (and movie, not all characters, but we still don’t really know) are still readily available for the investor right now at some decent (affordable) pricing. At the forefront of your search should be Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon. Star-Lord (as mentioned numerous times already on InvestComics) first appeared in Marvel Preview Presents #4 (1976). There are only 29 of these comics graded by CGC right now. Three of which sit in the 9.8 slot. Do you really need more motivation here? Okay here’s some more for you. Rocket Raccoon first appeared in Marvel Preview Presents #7 (1976). There are an astounding 12 graded copies of this book out there. Highest grade is a 9.6 and only one sits there. Next grade sits at 9.2 with two sitting there. Get the drift here? Then you have Gamora and Drax. Both of these characters have a big similarity. That would be Mr. Jim Starlin. Gamora first appeared in Strange Tales #180 (1975) and Drax debuted in Iron Man #55 (1975) both are written and penciled by Jim. Now we all know that if you are a comic collector, one must own the first appearance of what is to become the modern day Darth Vader (Thanos) in Iron Man #55, which commands some big bucks in the aftermarket, but still a very strong buy at the high prices. Looking at the Strange Tales #180 though we see a trend like the previously mentioned, excluding the Iran Man book. Only 79 of these comics are graded. Ten hold the 9.8 position. Then we have Groot. Tales to Astonish #13 (1960) is the first look at Groot. Okay only 28 graded here. Highest grades available are one at 9.4 and one at the 9.2 position. Here’s the kicker with this comic. A debut from Groot and only 28 total graded?? This comic is a golden egg ready to explode IF Groot somehow makes it to the big screen and kicks ass. Not because he’s “groot”, because it’s a first appearance drawn by legend Jack “the King” Kirby. Nuff said. Well one more thing. Jim Starlin is one of the main reasons if not THE reason the Marvel cosmo’s being as consistent and brilliant as it is. Don’t kid yourself. He’s the Frank Miller Batman of the Marvel Cosmic Universe. Now, nuff said.

DC Comics tells fans that Flash #17 will introduce us to one of Flash’s greatest foes! Great! The Flash rogue gallery needs a kick in the ass! The Savage Hawkman #17 re-introduces the Shadow Thief into the New 52 Universe. The Shadow Thief first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #36 (1961). This issue comes with a Joe Kubert cover. Nice!

Uncanny Avengers #4 has Omega Skull in it. Is this the first appearance? Not sure, but wanted to throw it out there!

And another Uncanny book to look forward to this week with the word “skull” in it is Uncanny Skullkickers #1. Check out these books as well; Five Weapons #1 (Image), Amalas Blade #0 (Dark Horse), and Professor Frink Fantastic Science Fictions #1 (Bongo).

See you next week, invest wisely.

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 2-6-13

So what’s better than the actual football game on Superbowl Sunday you ask? Two things; the new commercials and InvestComics Hot Picks of course! Duh!

Humanoids!

HumanoidsIf you’re a regular reader of the InvestComics Hot Picks, you probably know by now that we love the New 52 and Marvel NOW! For one simple reason. Well maybe a couple, but the main reason is the introduction of new ideas which in turn comes back to the reader/fan in the form of new characters and the return of old forgotten ones. This week in no exception with comics like Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #17 from DC. New villains will be hitting that issue. Earth 2 (2012 DC) #9 features the return of the new Wotan. Wotan first appeared way back in 1940 and comes with a $30,000 price tag. A first appearance of Wotan is worth that much you ask? Well yes and no. It is, but it also happens to be the first appearance of Dr. Fate. Avengers Assemble (2012) Annual #1 gives fans the return of Sunturion. Sunny first showed up in Iron Man #143 (1981). The creative team is enough for this collector to go searching for this book. John Romita Jr. on pencils and Mr. Iron Man writer himself Bob Layton. No need to second guess buying this comic for a few bucks. The issue also features a turning point for one of the most underrated characters within the Marvel library. Buy the Avengers #57 (1968) at any price you can and stash it away. When Vision finally makes it to the big screen you will kicking yourself that you did not pick this comic up at a reasonable price when you had the chance. Vision’s first appearance is a long term investment that has tremendous upside, do not wait. Fearless Defenders (2013) #1 is one of those comics that many of the comic book store owners will hear a collective sigh when the collector’s see it on the shelf. It features two second (third?) rate female characters; Valkyrie and Misty Knight. The ::sigh:: will be warranted. Most female lead comics have a very hard time sustaining long term interest. Birds of Prey were a great tandem, but that too grew tired with the fans. For some reason female leads do not tend to hold their own comics for very long. They make spectacular team players and there are very strong female characters out there. Some; most are even better than the men! Yes, Wonder Woman has succeeded in many ways, but how many relaunch’s, status changes, costume changes has she endured? Case in point. So will the Valkyrie (first appearance Avengers #83 -1970)/Misty Knight (first appearance Marvel Premiere #
