Gwenpool continues her quest breaking that proverbial fourth wall in Gwenpool #17. Christopher Hastings writes, Gurihiru art.
Fans of the original Ben Reilly Spidey get their old school look back this Wednesday. He’ll revert back to his red underwear look……..wait, wrong dude. He’ll revert back to his blue hoody look. Yes that’s it, Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #3 puts Ben back in his original suit.

Hydra Deadpool on the cover of Deadpool #32. Fanboys may have to just walk past it at their local comic shop and breathe. Deep breaths, deep breaths. What if Deadpool becomes a bad guy too?? Will the revolt begin?? Oh wait, is that Spidey Hydra on the Secret Empire #4 cover? Boy what a hard week for the fanboy. Drink some warm milk, you’ll be alright.
The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #8; Mary Jane as Venom. This is for real, not a MJ cosplay cover. More on the MJ cosplay in a minute.

First Appearance Of The Defenders – All Available Ebay Sellers – Click Image

Marvel is calling the villain in Thanos #8 ‘bigger’ than the large Smurf guy himself. Is this an intro to a ‘more powerful’ or a new character altogether? Writer Jeff Lemire and artist German Peralta.
A new Defenders comic that correlates with the Netflix television show debuts this Wednesday. The same line-up that appears on the show appears in the comic. Defenders #1, written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by David Marquez.

Mary Jane will be back in the spotlight this week. Check out most of her cosplay outfits she dons on some of the Marvel covers within this article. As we said last week, maybe, just maybe one of these silly MJ cosplay becomes a Marvel Universe reality, in which case one of these covers would be her unofficial/official first appearance. Of course we need to point out this is pure speculation and has a slim chance of ever coming to fruition, but we like to give fans/collectors a heads up of the possibility of something like this happening. MJ Deadpool? That’s kinda neat. We really wouldn’t visit this idea if these covers weren’t so darn good. All or most of them will make our Best Covers Of The Week post. We suggest you take a look at that article when it hits for the cover credits.

The big DC summer event starts this week; Dark Days: The Forge #1. DC brings out the big guns here. Snyder, Kubert, Romita, Lee, Williams and Tynion IV.
Two new Looney Tunes specials debut; Legion of Super Heroes – Bugs Bunny Special #1 and Martian Manhunter – Marvin the Martian Special #1.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks;
As we have done here time and time again (and been correct), we inform collectors that the new Aftershock comic coming out will sell out by the time you reach the end of this article. This week it’s Jimmy’s Bastards #1 from the amazing writer Garth Ennis, with art by Russel Braun. About a UK super-spy. A modern day take on some other spy we all know. Will this, can this be a film one day? We like to think so, but the name hampers it a bit from a lot of the political correctness these days. Who knows really? Thing is, this has the potential of movie or television status.
Scout Comics follows up their debut hit comic Mindbender; Mindbender #2. James Pruett writes, Federico De Luca art.

Comic Broker Report – Modern Variant Special

These days variant comic covers are the chase cards of the comic market.  Personally I don’t seek them out unless I can find them for cover or at a reasonable price.  This rarely happens.  Most comic stores make a lot of their weekly profit from selling these issues to their local customers or online.  Whatever your collecting/investment strategy, you cannot deny that publishers who limit the availability via print run do so because it helps them sell comics.  I know many dealers, store owners and collectors who wish they would just go away but that will never happen.

The following variants are the ones I would invest in:

BATMAN 12 ( Limited 1 for 100 Variant Cover by Greg Capullo )

This issue by Snyder and Capullo features the third appearance of Harper Row ( Batman1,7 ).  A lot of folks are betting heavy on earlier issues featuring Row thinking that she’s the next Robin.  Until her true first appearance is agreed upon I can’t recommend either issue 1 or 7 which both have extremely rare Sketch variants of their own.  This issue is intriguing because of its rarity along with it being the first appearance of Harper’s brother Cullen.  Cullen seems a bit unstable to me and who knows how much of an effect a vile, neglectful father may have upon him.  Cullen is also a homosexual teen who has experienced hate crime.  Little is known about him but Snyder has given him a complex background and that’s a good start when it comes to purchasing.
Value:  40

BATMAN INCORPORATED 5 ( Limited 1 for 100 Variant Cover by Chris Burnham )

Grant Morrison returns us to the 666 universe where Damian Wayne is the Batman!  As one of the more popular dytsopian futures in comics, it’s no surprise that this issue is on this list.  Burnham’s cover is one of my all time Batman favorites! Though I love the fact that issue 666 of Batman Vol. 1 has no variant and is highly sought after, I can appreciate the value of this work, which stands out amongst many other DC titles.

Value: 45

2725134-screen_shot_2012_11_28_at_6.22.31_am_super

 

Thor God of Thunder 2 ( Limited 1 for 50 Varaint Cover by Daniel Acuna )

One of my favorite new comics, Thor God of Thunder continues to impress with great art and storytelling.  If I were writing the Thor films I would make sure to factor Gorr the God Butcher into any future Phases.  If you read comics long enough you can sometimes feel as if you have seen and read everything so it’s a pleasant feeling when something fresh comes along!

Value: 25

th

 

Thor 617 ( Limited 1 for 15 Tron Variant Cover by Brandon Peterson. )

Loki will go down as one of the earliest and most successful Marvel Films characters so when he was killed of it puzzled me until they brought him back as Kid Loki in this issue of Thor!

Value: 20

Thor617TronVar

 

Batman 655 ( Kubert 1:10 Variant )

Ok so recently I have been trying to convince people who care that Damian Wayne’s first appearance is NOT in this book but in issue 656 of Batman.  You see Damian only appears in shadows in this issue.  We don’t see his face until the following issue.  With his death making national news it’s become clear that Bruce’s son has resonated with readers and collectors.  Until the masses agree that 656 is his first this is the one to buy and it features an outstanding variant cover by an industry great!

Value: 15-20

batman-655-variant

 

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two 8  ( Thanos Variant Cover )

Thanos is the big bad villain in the room over the next few years and with a GOA film coming in 2014 any combination of the two equals a wise investment.  These can still be found lurking in back issue boxes.  It’s an undervalued comic with lots of growth potential.

Value: 15

745369-guardians_of_the_galaxy_08__2009___thanos_variant__super

 

Avengers 5  2010  ( 1 for 75 John Romita Variant Cover, First Mention of the Ultron War )

Captain America Reborn 6  ( Limited 1 for 25 Variant, Cap sees the Age of Ultron Future )

So earlier this month I recommended these two in another article and here is why-It’s still unclear how the Age of Ultron will turn out but we all know the recipe for success in sales can easily lie in how well you construct your final act.  Rumor has it there is a super surprise ending to this series penciled by Joe Q.  If it pays off then these are back issue gold.  If not well…..

Value 50

Injustice Gods Among Us ( Limited 1 for 25 Variant Cover by Jheremy Raapack )

Last month I said to grab issue one while cover was still an option.  Did you?  If not then you are now paying triple cover.  This one has legs as the game looks to be a hit and the comic is amazing.

Value: 70-100
