Top 5 Hot Picks #126

Every week before new comic book day, InvestComics provides our fans with the Top 5 Hot Picks for new comics coming out on Wednesday. This list is pulled straight from the latest (weekly) InvestComics Hot Picks article. This week’s Top 5 based on InvestComics Hot Picks #488 and new comics coming this Wednesday 8/16/17.

Totally Awesome Hulk #22 – Three weeks ago we gave fans a heads up on this comic. On our Facebook page and within the InvestComics Hot Picks #485 article. Now this comic commands 3 times it’s value before its release on Wednesday. You could have been on this comic at cover price three weeks ago, but maybe we should act like all of these sites that have completely emulated us and scream about how you can send your children to college if you buy 500 copies of this comic. We’ll pass on that behavior and leave that to the amateurs. How is that rare Scooby Doo Harley Quinn book doing? Anyway, the first ‘full’ appearance of Weapon H right here.
Dark Nights: Metal #1 – Duke gets a superhero name and a new costume. We’re not going to scream about this either. With creator names like Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Danny Miki, do we really need any other reason to not check this comic out? The answer is no. We check it out because we have talent on this book.
Superman #29 – The first Yellow Lantern Superman within DC continuity.
Sheena #0 – If you’re looking to make some quick cash, follow these steps. Step 1, buy this limited J.Scott Campbell variant. Two, track down J.Scott Campbell at a comic convention. Three, get him to sign this comic (pay J.Scott Campbell). Four, send this to your favorite grading company and score a 9.8 or higher (must score a 9.8 or higher). Be sure to get 2 day on it, do not do snail grading (unless you like losing money or making very little to breaking even). Five, when you receive your 9.8 or higher, sell it. Six (optional), send a percent of your earnings (‘a thank you’) to either paypal.me/InvestComicsLLC or the InvestComics LLC PO Box. You’re welcome.
Divinity #0 – Another Valiant Entertainment kick as* book. A jumping on point. Should have leaped a while ago, but Valiant is allowing for jumpers now……so jump.

Buy/Bid – Dark Nights Metal #1

Buy/Bid – Injustice #11

Buy/Bid – Superman #29

Buy/Bid – Awesome Hulk #22

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A possible big introduction within the continuity of Superman and the DC Universe this week in Superman #29. Yellow Lantern Superman may debut. The Ryan Sook cover shows Superman in full Yellow Lantern garb. Could it be? Obvious, yes, but who knows really. Let’s all check this comic out and see if this really is what we think it is. Yellow Lantern Superman did first appear in Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #11 in 2014. This story was outside of the realm of continuity and Superman #29 will be inside the DCU, so you make the call as to which you feel is the true first appearance.
Another ‘devastating, push to their limits, never seen, etc…’ event from DC Comics this Wednesday. This time is under the name Dark Nights: Metal #1. We’re almost certain this comic (and series) will be a great read (Scott Snyder) with amazing art (Greg Capullo/Danny Miki), but can we ease up on the throttle a bit with the hype ‘THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING’ rhetoric? Let readers decide. We’re smart. Well, some of us are, but still. A new Duke costume and superhero name does not account for all of the hype. Relax. Dial it back a little.

Buy/Bid – All-New Wolverine #1

Buy/Bid – Generations #1

Buy/Bid – Secret Warriors #4

Buy/Bid – Wolverine XMen #19

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Comic fans have waited patiently for the new Hulk with Wolverine claws to debut. The wait is over this week. Totally Awesome Hulk #22 introduces Batch H/Weapon H in his first FULL appearance. InvestComics gave fans a heads up on this comic a few weeks ago and even provided an Ebay link to buy this comic early. Well now….sold out across the board and Ebay has this comic at $20 or more already. Writer Greg Pak and artist Robert Gill bring fans a new Hulk character that could be around for years to come if there is a positive response and from the looks of it….Weapon H may have arrived.
While a new Hulk character is introduced this week, an older one could be meeting his fate in U.S. Avengers #9. Will Marvel off the Red Hulk to make room for the Hulk with claws?
Marvel continues their ‘Generations’ books this week. In some cases, pitting the ‘old’ verses the ‘new’. Although it seems we are getting more of a team-up comic this week; Generations: Wolverine & All New Wolverine #1. Creators, writer Tom Taylor and artist Ramon Rosanas. Contrary to the promotions (a bit) from Marvel, this is not the first, real official meeting between these two. They met way back in 2016 (insert sarcasm); All-New Wolverine #1.
One of the strangest characters to arrive in a long time gets a ‘focal’ book this week. Generation X #5 ‘focuses’ on the character Eye-Boy. In case you really dig this character and you’re in the market for the first appearance, find Wolverine & The X-Men #19 (2012).
Manifold will join the Black Panther team in Black Panther & The Crew #5. Manifold first appeared in Secret Warriors #4 (2009).

Norman #3 – Each of the previous two comics sold out before this one. This one has sold out too! Titan Comics has a hit on their hands.

All-Star Batman #1 – We’re going to love reading this new Batman book. And we’re loving that Jock variant too!

Superwoman #1 – The very talented Phil Jimenez will write and draw this new Superwoman series. It’s going to be fantastic.

Deathstroke Rebirth #1 – Writer Christopher Priest starts things off with the Deathstroke Rebirth comic. This series will be a definite get each month. You must get this on your pull list.

Spider-Man Deadpool #8 – Marvel’s solicit says the same thing we’ve been saying since issue number one of this series. Buy it. Every issue sells out and we’ve told speculators this series is a no-brainer. Two of Disney’s biggest characters in their library. Put them together in a monthly team-up book and watch it fly off the shelf. And we predicted a while ago, you heard this HERE first….wait until they do a Spider-Man, Deapool, Spider-Gwen, Gwenpool team-up. Those variants will go for a heavy aftermarket premium.

Justice League #40

Click to Buy Now

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: Justice League #40 (2015) 9.8. This modern comic is more about the new Justice League trailer and what the potential it could carry. The new trailer has Bruce Wayne building a team to defeat an evil like no one has ever seen. That evil, we hope, could be Darkseid. If Darkseid is the main villain (we hope), this comic possesses the first appearance of his daughter Grail (cameo). If the female presence continues to make their indelible mark within the comic book industry like they have never before, expect to possibly see Grail on the big screen. This comic will leave that $99.99 price tag long, long, long behind if Grail makes that leap to the big screen. A speculative move here indeed. You make the call. 

Before reading ahead, we feel we need to warn you that our articles contain very harsh truths in them. Not vulgar language, just a good solid dose of honesty. They always have, they always will. If you are easily offended, cannot come to terms that other people have opinions too beside yourself and especially if you’re a fanboy, discontinue reading.

We start off this week towards the speculative side of the hobby……
All-Star Batman #1 from DC Comics is one of those tough call speculator books. Not all all a question this comic will be a tremendous read (we hope anyway!). The book itself will bring sure-fire creative super power. Scott Snyder writes and John Romita Jr. will pencil. There will be other dynamic creators attached to this comic, but those two will get top billing. Scott Synder will be re-imagining Batman villains as we have never seen them before. That according to DC of course, don’t hold us to that. First up will be Two-Face. With all of the changes going on from DC from the past 10 years or so, will this be any different really? It’s a good possibility it will be “different”, but therein lay one of the issues as far as speculation goes. Just because something is different and touches off some fanboy nerve in a good way, it may drive the speculation market to max status. Here’s a question you must ask yourself, what happens once the romance wears off?
In recent memory one of the only books to sustain a monetary value and marketability with absolutely no redeeming comic book collector substance (first appearance, death, new character look, gender change character, etc) is Scott Synder/Greg Capullo Batman #1. We have stated this before in numerous articles, if you look at a graded copy, upper right hand corner, it’s completely blank. No first appearance, no appearances, no new costumes, nothing. That book still commands some decent aftermarket prices and it holds a fantastic beginning of a storybook run by two unbelievably talented creators, we get it (we think). Think about this. There have been some amazing Batman stories told over many, many decades by legends in the industry. Amazing runs of their own. Some of their books couldn’t even touch the Synder/Capullo Batman books as far as aftermarket pricing goes. Is that Batman #1 (Synder/Capullo) graded 9.8, which just sold for $300 a few days ago REALLY worth $300?? That’s $300, essential for a…..”Batman story”. Before you fanboys start whining and crying, we’re fans of Synder and Capullo, so stop getting your panties in a bunch. You’re going to learn here, don’t worry about when the next Scooby Doo/Harley Quinn team-up will happen. There are plenty of story driven comics throughout history that command some aftermarket monies. Miller’s Dark Knight and Gaiman’s Sandman, come to mind right away, but those stories were industry changing stories. We’re not saying Scott and Greg didn’t bring their Batman run to another level, but did they really change things in the long term? We’ll actually have to wait and see about this. Five years does not qualify a $300 book (in OUR opinion. Fanboys please sit down. Adults, please speak if you want). Neal Adams, Frank Miller, Alan Moore and a few others have literally changed the Batman landscape that still reverberates in today’s modern era. This market is modern top heavy, been that way for quite some time now. Be weary of what you are putting in to get out. Many have put too much into these modern books and are getting torched with red numbers. The Batman #1 book (and some others) have paid off, but more often than not, that “big/obvious” book winds up not meeting expectations for speculators. Wytches (Snyder + Jock = WOW) comes to mind rather quickly. So many more though. 
Which brings us back to All-Star Batman #1 this Wednesday. The creative firepower is there and the amazing variants are there. The big questions; will the story be interesting enough to compel demand? Will interest wane after the first read? The second issue? Will this be all hype and no punch? Will delays in release happen? Will there be a large print run? How many times have we seen an all-star creative team assembled and it turns out to be just “okay” or “good” or even a flop. It’s when collectors aren’t counting on it, case in point Batman #1 (Synder/Capullo) that it becomes a huge hit. Yes we know, we know, sit down fanboys, they were fabulous creators when they were announced for that Batman book, but no one would have predicted a 9.8 for $300 in late July 2016. No one.
So going full circle here and back to the beginning, we are definitely without a doubt looking forward to the new All-Star Batman comic. More so as a comic book fan and not as a speculator. We could be completely wrong on this, we’ve been wrong before, we accept that. But we think this may be one of those creative all-star teams with a good story to tell and that’s it. Which, at the end of the day is the goal anyway. As for the REAL speculative side regarding All-Star Batman #1 this Wednesday, one word…….Jock.

With the influx of female comic characters dominating the industry these days, DC will go back to the well this week. Superwoman #1 will be written and drawn by the great Phil Jimenez. We’re so on board here. We expect the new series to do well and we urge collectors to check it out. Because we really like the potential of the new Superwoman book, you may want to click on the following comic to see what is available; DC Comics Presents Annual #2 (1983). This is the first appearance of Superwoman. Cover from legend Gil Kane and pencils by Keith Pollard.

The New Super-Man #1 fared well and now the follow up; New Super-Man #2. Be sure to check out the constant introduction of new characters during this series.
InvestComics had Deathstroke’s first appearance in the very first issue of the InvestComics magazine more than 11 years ago. Back when it was more obtainable. A 9.8 first appearance sold for a mere $550 a couple of weeks ago. Now this Wednesday, Deathstroke Rebirth #1 hits and we’re stoked. It won’t be a $550 book, probably ever, but the story will kick all kinds of as*. Writer Christopher Priest will deliver, get this on your pull list. The Stephen Platt variant cover is fantastic and it makes us reflect back to the early nineties when Stephen first tackled his first Marvel book; Moon Knight #55 (1993). That was a huge hot book back then. A 9.8 Moon Knight #55 just sold for $189 in early July. Definitely worth mentioning here too, the regular Aco Deathstroke Rebirth #1 cover is phenomenal as well, but InvestComics has always spoken about Stephen Platt thru-out the years. We’re huge fans.
Speaking of covers, a tremendous Rafael Albuquerque variant cover; Detective Comics #938. Rafael is making a habit of cutting right into the InvestComics Hot Picks almost every week with an amazing variant cover. Keep that up sir, we certainly do not mind.

When InvestComics informed readers that the Spider-Man Deadpool #1 comic and series was going to be one to get and follow, we were kinda right. Well not kinda, we were. Spider-Man Deadpool #8 comes out with Marvel touting the same thing we have been saying, that every issue sells out and you need to be on top of this series. Spider-Man Deadpool #1 is headed to its seventh printing. The two biggest characters within Disney’s arsenal each month in their own team-up book, it’s a no-brainer here.

Here are some Indie comics and number one issues to definitely check out on Wednesday.
A new book from writer Jonathan Hicks (East of West) will be on the shelf. Check out Black Monday Murders #1 from Image Comics.
Want a dark and twisted retelling of the Peter Pan story? Sure you do! Check out 451 Media Group’s Nvrlnd #1.

We gave our readers an alert on Henchgirl (Scout Comics), which turned out to be a very nice aftermarket series. Now we have been telling readers about the Norman title from Titan Comics every month. Each of the previous two issues have sold out and Norman #3 has sold out before Wednesday’s new comic book day. The series has proven to be an interest to fans and you best be on it.
Sons Of Anarchy Redwood Original #1 (Boom Studios) has show creator Kurt Sutter on board to supervise the making of this comic series. He wants to protect his property and provide the best SOA book for his fans. We get it and that’s awesome.
Starring Sonya Devereaux #1 (American Mythology) features a Walking Dead #1 variant cover.

Click To Buy Now – Detective Comics #871

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: Detective Comics #871 graded 9.6. It’s kind of a rare thing these days to get a JOCK signature. Anyone that follows InvestComics knows how much we love the artist Jock. We have an entire checklist of our favorite works by him right HERE. So this comic is a graded 9.6 with a Scott Snyder and a Jock signature. For only $99, this is a nice book.

Hold on folks, here come the DC Rebirth books. Be on the look out for first appearances. It only takes ONE to breakout and cause quite a stir in the aftermarket. Be on top of these good stories as DC breaths new life into their Rebirth era. Here are some highlights; Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 puts writer Geoff Johns back with artist Ethan Van Sciver on a Green Lantern book. These two make Lantern poetry together. “Newer” Green Lanterns Jessica Cruz (first appearance in Justice League #30 – 2014) and Simon Baz (First appearance was in The New 52 FCBD Special Edition #1 – 2012. First origin was in Green Lantern #0 – 2012) lead the charge here.

Batman Rebirth #1 begins a new chapter for DC’s iconic hero. Scott Synder and Tom King write. Calender Man will be the adversary Bats has to deal with in the first issue. And in case you’re wondering, Detective Comics #259 (1958) was the first appearance of Calender Man.
The latest issue of Batman Beyond examines the intricacies of the character Rewire. Check out Batman Beyond #13 for the scoop. Another scoop; Rewire first appeared in Batman Beyond #2 (2013).

A mega four issue comic crossover happens all in one comic this week. Where you ask? Only one comic could pull this off, Deadpool #13. Duh! That Khoi Pham variant cover though…….
Marvel’s Civil War II officially gets under way this week. Civil War II #1 is solicited as “CLASSIFIED”. More of the same with Invincible Iron Man #10. Boy we hate that. Now we have to wait another week before finding out what is so “classified”. The Rafael Alburquerque hip hop cover is dope though. We’ll just stare at that until Wednesday’s new comic book day.

Hyperion #1

Hyperion #1 – Click To Buy/Bid

Hyperion #1 – Marvel’s latest Superman push. Maybe they want to eventually have a Superman type movie one day. Maybe Disney wants that. And what Disney wants, Disney gets.

Obi-Wan And Anakin #3 – Regular readers on InvestComics know we recommend ANY Star Wars comic. Not only for the fantastic story lines throughout Marvel’s galaxy far far away, but also the potential of a new major Star Wars character getting introduced. That said, Obi-Wan and Anakin visit a new world this Wednesday. A new world could mean a new character!

Venom Space Knight #5 – And speaking of new characters. Check out the new Panda character named Pik Rollo in this comic. That Ariel Olivetti cover kills too.

Delete #1 – The Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Justin Gray team is at it again. This time with a Devils Due Publishing release. A must read of course. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #56 – This comic is sold out across the board. Regular and variants. The solicit point to the first appearance of Leatherhead in this issue……..but that’s not the complete truth. Check the InvestComics Hot Picks article to find the true first appearance of Leatherhead.

IC 100 Club Pick: Avengers #154 (1976) Graded 9.4. there are two standouts here regarding this pick. Let us tell you what the other non-standouts are first. It’s a 1976 book graded at a nice 9.4. It’s the first appearance of Tyrax. Legend, George Perez with interior art. Now let’s hit on the two standouts. First, the cover art is by Al Migrom and comic book legend Jack ‘King’ Kirby. Second, this graded CGC comic is priced at a Buy It Now for only $59.99. Okay one more fantastic thing….free shipping. This must be in your collection. Avengers, George Perez, Al Milgrom, first appearance, and Jack Kirby?! A 9.4 for $59.99 with FREE shipping. No-brainer here. Better grab it before it’s gone.

IDW introduces Leatherhead in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #56. Leatherhead actually first appeared back in 1988’s Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #6 (Mirage Publishing).

Bruce Wayne is back as Batman in Batman #50. Here is Synder and Capullo’s final Batman comic. They’ve had a fine run to say the least. Does it equate to Batman #1 in their run costing so much money in the aftermarket? More questions; Does that comic contain a major first appearance? A death? A creators first work? A low low print run? If the answer was ‘no’ to all of these questions, then the answer to our original question was answered. Here’s another thing. Look to the right upper hand side of the graded Batman #1’s. It’s blank. Nothing there. Not even a new costume reference. Not hating, we absolutely loved the run. Just need to point out the obvious and separate the boys from the men. Long term…..be wise youngsters, invest wisely.
Also reach their 50th issue this week will be Wonder Woman #50.
An awesome fight will be going down in Deathstroke #16. Deathstroke vs. Red Hood. Ding! Ding! Fight!
The Harley Quinn character faces a new direction in her life. Witness it in Harley Quinn #26.

The Howling Commandos Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 will have the team searching for ORRGO. ORRGO has been used sparingly over the last 53 years. Maybe a little over a dozen appearances? Crazy right? ORRGO’s first appearance was in Strange Tales #90 (1961). A book from Jack Kirby, Don Heck, Steve Ditko, and Stan Lee. Wow, what a line up.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.
Doesn’t Hyperion remind you a bit of Superman on a couple of his covers to Hyperion #1? Maybe Marvel is trying its hand again in trying to deliver their version of Superman. Marvel last tried back in 2000 with Sentry. Sentry was basically Marvel’s Superman at the time. They don’t really have that “Superman” type character. They really don’t need one. Fast forward to Hyperion #1. Marvel may be going back to the well again with the striking resemblance on those covers. Hyperion first appeared (cameo) along with Squadron Sinister in Avengers #69 (1969). His first full appearance was in the next issue; Avengers #70. Sentry (Robert Reynolds), first appeared in The Sentry #1 (2000).
Is The New Avengers #8 comic the first appearance of American Kaiju? It might be.
Obi-Wan And Anakin enter a new world in Obi-Wan And Anakin #3. You know what that means right? New world, new characters!

Totally Awesome Hulk #4 – Women of power variant from Meghan Hetrick for the win. But that Ultimates #5 Women of Power variant from Yasmine Putri is stellar too! Okay we’ll call a tie this week. That all said, we still think the title of the Hulk book is a bit silly, not changing our minds on that one.

Looks like Jimmy, Amanda, and Justin are using that subliminal stuff on us. ‘Insert’ this comic into your collection. See, see, we’re on to you!

Hot Picks based on new comics coming this Wednesday 8/12/15

 

Click on any RED link or comic cover in the article to buy/bid on the comic right now. A new page will open, so you will not lose your place here.

 

A potentially light week as far as the speculation side goes, plenty of great reading ahead. Although there is one speculation comic that will make up for the entire week this Wednesday…..

There will not be a bigger book this week. Batman #43 is where it’s at. Guarantee it. No way. Scott Synder and Greg Capullo introduce a new villain into Batman’s life this Wednesday, Mr. Bloom. We all know what happens when these two creative minds get together within these pages right? The villain is right there on the cover too. No cameo, little panel, a hand, no this dude is right there in plain sight. Although there are two other variants, the Mr. Bloom cover makes for an attractive collectors piece. He only graces the regular cover and not the others. A better resell with the character on the cover like that. Bottom line here, Mr. Bloom will be blooming in the aftermarket on Wednesday and thereafter. A seriously big book this week.

Superman may have the same scenario brewing. DC says Superman faces a new threat lurking in the shadows in Action Comics #43. Let’s all read and find out who or what it is.

Another sold out Darwyn Cooke variant comic this week; Justice League Gods and Monsters #1.

Comic fans get a first this week. Adam.3 #1 will be the first for creator Scott Kolins. A first in his very own creator owned character starring in a new series. Thanks to Dark Horse this is happening. Comic fans win! Be sure to check it out and support Scott. He’s a cool dude.

Independent publisher Action Lab Entertainment making some noise this Wednesday. Archon Battle of the Dragon #1 and F1rst Hero Fight For Your Life #1 are both sold out. Speaking of sold out, but not sold out….YET, From Titan Comics, Doctor Who Event 2015 Four Doctors #1. Doctor Who fans will be all over this.

There will be no shortage of number one comics to check on this week. Two very good stories await us from IDW; String Divers #1 and Boy-1 #1.

Click the red link or comic cover and see what those packages are selling for. Sheesh. Yankee #1 is not a baseball story, rather a unique story from Alternative ComicsGuardian Knight Comics‘ Gears And Bones #1Americatown #1 from Boom Studios, Dark Horse’s King Tiger #1, and rounding out the InvestComics Hot Picks week is DC’s DC Comics Bombshells #1.

InvestComics will head up to NYCC for the fourth year straight with press badge in tow, and this year with cohort Rafael Rosario of Ratchet City Comics!

BULLETIN*****An important announcement will be forthcoming before we leave to New York, so stay close folks. The “Dawning” of a new era is coming……

Let’s head on over to the 3D-less Hot Picks this week shall we?

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Releases 10-9-13

[scrollGallery id=311]

There are a few comics to really keep your eyes peeled to this week. Captain America (2012 7th Series) #12 will bring the character known as Dr. Mindbubble. Yes that’s correct, Dr. Mindbubble. Okay so what’s in a name right? Hey it’s a first official appearance here, so we must take a looksee. Always nice to have intro’s within the pages of a Cap book. Afterlife With Archie (2013) #1 has created quite the buzz around the comic book scene. With the award winning talents of writer Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla, coupled with a zombie apocalypse, this new ongoing series (not for the Archie “kid readers”) is going to sell out quick. There will be variants of this comic available, be sure to grab them. The variants by the way are absolutely gorgeous.

Superman and Wonder Woman begin their romance novel/superhero comic with the Superman Wonder Woman (2013) #1 release. DC has done the unthinkable here folks!! Where’s Lois? Well welcome to the “real life”. Man gets famous; he wants the hottest chick on the block. Men are dogs aren’t they? Just kidding of course. But DC may have actually found a little niche with their experiment here. Why not put the most powerful superhero with the most powerful female hero and let the romance ensue. It may, may, may peek the interest of a “non” female reader to come along and pick this comic up. Fangirls and fanboys will pick this up regardless if it’s a decent story, but what about the elusive female readership that so many comic companies are trying to cater to? Well DC, you may have something here. Awesome stuff. The relationship between Supes and WW is essentially 66 years in the making. Better late than never right? They first met up in All-Star Comic #36 (1947). Good luck trying to snag that comic right now at a decent penny with all of the WW talk of possibly appearing in the new Superman/Batman movie. Oh and by the way, pick up the scarce variant black and white cover if you want to make a nice return on your dollar.                  

Major revelations are revealed in Batman Zero Year. Origins and a big surprise hits us in Batman (2011 2nd Series) #24. Pick that up, see if it’s a “holy sh*t!” moment or a “meh” moment. Our guess it’s going to be a “holy Batman!” Moment.   

With every successful event comes the additional spin off books, case in point this week with Forever Evil Arkham War (2013) #1. Is it really necessary to have a separate Forever Evil campaign run through Arkham? Well maybe, but it kind of feels like a 3D moment doesn’t it? Cool, but why? Money that’s why! Duh! DC Comics striking while the iron is hot here with more Forever Evil comics. Probably a great, fun read, but unless there is a major wow moment going on in here or an intro, not much going on for this comic in the aftermarket.

Speaking of cashing in, this is great. Image Comics knows that the Walking Dead is their major moneymaker right? In Walking Dead (2003 Image) #115 Rick has declared “All Out War”, a 12 part storyline that starts this week. It’s one of the most dramatic event storylines to fill these pages in some time, if ever. That’s all well and good, right? So what shall they do to introduce a new major storyline like no other? How about 12 variant covers? That’s right, 12 covers…..wow. Cha-ching!

Image Comics comes at us with more great number one comics this week; Three (2013 Image) #1 and Rocket Girl (2013 Image) #1.

Coffin Hill (2013 DC/Vertigo) #1 will be another fantastic Vertigo comic probably. Death Sentence (2013 Titan Comics) #1 from Titan looks like a very interesting comic. Looks like a movie to come out of that someday possibly. Cryptozoic Man (2013 Dynamite) #1, already covered on Comic Book Men season II, look for more coverage on this comic in Comic Book Men season III. Horror comics are making a mild comeback and this week the much talked about (positive) Department of Monsterology (2013 Renegade Arts) #1 will be hitting the shelves. A few cool/fun comics to check out this week; Shaolin Cowboy (2013 Dark Horse) #1, Multiple Warheads Down Fall (2013) #0, and Marvel Universe Hulk Agents of Smash (2013) #1.

That’s it for this week. Don’t to enter the contest, LIKE/Follow InvestComics. New York Comic Con bound, see you in 2 weeks!

Disclaimer: all comic recommendations are from a speculative vantage point. Not all comics are to guarantee a return on your investment. This article is used as a guide for investments and more so for entertainment purposes. Any opinions or expression of investments should be used as a judgement upon the investor, not InvestComics. Please use your own discretion when investing and have fun.

So InvestComics received a bit of a facelift. Pretty cool huh? And with change there are always A LOT of bugs to figure out, so please be patient as we work out the kinks. Otherwise, it’s looking snazzy! Thanks for everyone’s kind words and support, you guys/gals rock.

Be sure to check out a ton of new material going up on InvestComics these days. Lots of cool new articles popping up daily/weekly.

The current contest on InvestComics will be coming to a close this week. Many people have entered to win a signed Fury #1 from writer Jimmy Palmiotti. All you have to do is share the InvestComics Facebook page and or the Twitter page and you become eligible. This of course is very cool, but if you don’t win this time, don’t fret because there is another contest coming up and boy is it nice!

Let’s move on to the ever “changing landscape” of the Marvel and DC Universe. And oh yes and the Hot Picks.

InvestComics Hot Picks 8/14/13

[scrollGallery id=287]

DC is making this new 52 a long lasting relationship isn’t it? Understanding that DC has restarted everything, it all just seems very muddled at this point. There is so much going on each week, so dramatic, so epic, so….tiresome. This week readers get to that point where Bruce Wayne becomes Batman in Batman (2011 2nd Series) #23. The DC solicit reads as though it’s the biggest thing to happen since sliced bread. Again, understanding that DC is in business to make money, they need to churn that hyperbole up, but haven’t we all been here before? No matter how much a great writer like Scott Snyder spins it as Batman’s first ever sequence of becoming the Bat, we all really know in the back of our minds that this really isn’t new to us. This isn’t a bad reflection on the great series Scott has done, but in the end folks, it’s more of the same here. The tagline for Marvel and DC these days should read The more things change, the more they stay the same.

More curiosity will succumb with Superboy (2011 5th Series) #23 this week as well. This comic promises the debut of a major threat to the DC Universe.

Marvel enters the ever changing of things this week too with Wolverine (2013 4th Series) #8. The tagline on that solicit reads “The biggest Wolverine event in years!” Really?? But we all know that curiosity will get the best of us right?

(Insert sarcasm in the brain for the majority of this paragraph, until the speculation part comes in). In closing with the flare for dramatics this week, Marvel gives us Infinity (2013 Marvel) #1. Not only will this be the return of the biggest bad ass in the Marvel U (Thanos), not only will this be an oversized comic (what is that exactly? Oversized? Why not be double sized? It’s probably not double sized. Maybe just oversized), this number one issue is so big (hype wise) that it will have TEN variant covers. Oh and here’s the best part, this series will “change the way you look at the Marvel Universe!” Really??? Well if you want to make some REAL change in your pocket, pick up the lowest ratio variant, get it witnessed signed (CGC) by Jim Starlin, grade it, hold on to it for a bit until Avengers 2 movie comes around and then dump it. You’ll triple your money. Still won’t be able to afford Iron Man #55 (First appearance of Thanos) at that point, but you’ll have a decent down payment.

IDW Publishing seems to have their ducks in a row. They don’t use the constant flare for dramatics to sell their books. It seems books like Star Wars #1 speak for themselves in the aftermarket. This week IDW brings back a team that debuted way back in 1966’s Dynamo #1 (Tower Comics). The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents have been well used over the years, and this week THUNDER Agents (2013 IDW) #1 will be again by the IDW team. With Todd McFarlane recently calling out Hollywood to check out the Independent circuit more, there is no telling where Hollywood may look next. Will this team be called upon? Dynamo #1 is one to pick up.

A couple of other comics to check out this week are Resident Alien Suicide Blonde (2013 Dark Horse) #0 and Fubar By the Sword (2013 Alterna) #1.

That’s it for this week, be sure to sign up for the InvestComics Newsletter. It will announce the next contest!

Welcome to the InvestComics Comic Hot Picks for comic releases on 8-29-12

It’s all about DC Comics this week. Seven number one issues to cover here! Now granted the majority of these are Annuals, but this is InvestComics, so we got you covered from yesteryear to present of course! Throughout history of comic collectables, “Annuals” never garnered the monetary value of other comics. The biggest reason for this is because most of the time the annuals were just “fill ins” or reprints of stories within the regular series put in the “Annual” with a new cover slapped on it. Some Annuals of years past and today do command ones attention, but the Annuals of today (DC especially) are incorporating major storylines within their pages. Let’s be clear here though, DC is not breaking ground with including their storylines within their Annuals, but they may have a first with releasing so many Annuals within the same week!

Superman Annual #1

Let’s start with the greatest superhero of all, (mostly voted by public court of opinion, so fight amongst yourselves)…..Superman! Superman Annual #1 comes in with a lot of fanfare. DC is pushing this comic as a must get comic. There are surprise cameos, a new Green Lantern, Aliens and 5 different artists on this comic. Not that highly unusual to have so many artists on one annual book, but what is unusual is the creative changes on this comic from the original solicit. This annual was originally written by Keith Giffen, but now is written by Scott Lobdell. DC also is pushing only one of the artists very hard on this book and that creator is Pascal Alixe, who incidentally did not appear on the original solicit. What’s going on DC? So on to more important things here, anyone know when the first Superman Annual appeared? Let’s see now, the original Superman #1 issue came out in 1939, so that would mean that the first Superman Annual came out 21 years later in 1960, correct? Yes. What exactly happened with the timeline here? Why 21 years for the first annual? The only guess is the oblivious one, DC didn’t think of “annuals” until then. The 1960 Superman Annual will cost a collector only about $1800. Not too shabby for the first Superman Annual. The saving grace for this annual that basically has no intros or first appearances is the artistry of legend Curt Swan! Oh yes and it also has a map of Krypton! Maybe that’s a first?!?

Green Lantern Annual #1

Next up; Green Lantern Annual #1. Much like all of the Annuals coming from DC this week, this particular annual feature’s a major plotline (conclusion) involving the Black Hand. DC says “Everything Changes Here. EVERYTHING!” Okay so you reeled us in DC, good job! Green Lantern’s first Annual came out in 1963. Two superb artists bring this annual to life; Alex Toth and Gil Kane. A very nice story in these pages finds Gil Kane teaching us how to draw Green Lantern. How cool is that?? And look at that beauty of a cover by Gil Kane too. Funny to look at the side by side comparisons of the 2 Green Lantern Annual covers isn’t it? Gil captures the essence of “fun” in comics, while the latest captures the doom and gloom that seems to have overtaken most of the comic covers these days. Oh well, c’est la vie!

Detective Annual #1

Detective Comics Annual #1 this week features the fight of all fights. No not Rob Liefeld and Scott Synder, but Batman vs. The Black Hand Mask. Great cover here, but an even nicer cover from the 1988 Detective Comics Annual #1 from the awesome Klaus Janson. The issue also features the writing talent of legend Denny O’Neil! A five dollar pick up for this one.

It looks like The Rouges will have their way with the Flash in Flash Annual #1, but according to DC’s solicit, something worse than The Rogues waits to attack the Flash! Yea for the reader! Bad for the Flash! 1963 was a very good year (sing that sentence in your best Frank Sinatra voice please) for DC annuals. The Flash Annual #1 debuted with art from “Mr.Flash himself” Carmine Infantino. This $800 comic brings origin stories along with Carmine Infantino. Not much else you need now is there?

Justice League International Annual

Justice League International Annual #1 ties onto Justice League #12 this week. The first Justice League International Annual happened in 1988 with names like Joe Rubinstein (cover), Bill Willingham (Art) and with writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis. Now that’s a lineup! With the tie in here though, the comic to pay more attention to is Justice League #12. They’re fighting a new villain and DC claims that the ending (last page) is so shocking it will have the comic community talking. Bring it!

The Outsiders #1 Looker #1

DC also has some regular number one issues coming out this week. National Comics Looker #1 brings Emily Briggs in her own solo comic. Check out the Looker’s first appearance in The Outsiders #1 from 1985. A new mini-series debuts from DC, Phantom Lady #1. Phantom Lady first appeared way back in Police Comics #1 in 1941. Her first appearance goes for a whopping $10,000! Well it also happens to be the first appearance of Plastic Man. He may have something to do with driving that price up! Phantom Lady doesn’t fly solo in this mini-series. Her partner in crime is Doll Man. His first appearance is in Feature Comics #27 from 1939. He’s not as worthy as Plastic Man, um we mean Phantom Lady’s first appearance. He gets only $4000 for his first.
