InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 3/4/15

Princess_Leia_1_InvestComicsSpider_Woman_5_InvestComicsMarvel Comics is wasting no time with their favorite new toy. That new toy being Star Wars of course. With a boatload of Star Wars #1 variants, then a Darth Vader #1 release and now a Princess Leia #1 release this week. A bit of Star Wars overkill here maybe? A Star Wars fan will say no way! There could never be enough Star Wars right? Anyway, the Princess takes center stage within the suddenly strong female leads in the Marvel Universe in some time. Silk, Spider-Gwen , Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman (more on her in a little bit), Thor, A-Force, Angela, and a few dedicated “variant woman of Marvel covers” appearing this week. So yes the women of Marvel are making some serious noise. About time! Now back to the Princess. Leia will bring a ridiculous amount of variant covers as has Star Wars #1 and Darth Vader #1. There is one very cool variant i recall with Leia holding Luke a’la Amazing Fantasy #15 cover that came from the Star Wars #1 variants I believe. Very neat. Cool book to have Stan Lee and the Princess herself to sign, get graded. You can check out that variant on Ebay right HERE. Lots of activity on that book. So is there anything making the speculator really keep an eye on this comic this Wednesday? Well one thing to note is that since Leia debuted in Star Wars #1 in 1977 (Marvel), she’s never had a self titled solo book. Crazy right? So that’s a nice plus. Which leads into the bigger reason here on why the speculator should really think about getting this book. Since Princess Leia never held her own title we never got a full story dedicated just to her on a level to which Marvel is about to take it. This could possibly mean an introduction or two without an announcement anywhere of it coming. Will it be a character that appears in the new film(s)? Will it be a spinoff of another Marvel title? Who knows? Thing is, the speculator needs to keep a close tab on this one.

Detective_Comics #32_InvestComics Blackcross_1_InvestComicsNew_52_44_InvestComicsMarvel really wants readers and non-fans alike to pay attention to Spider-Woman. In Spider-Woman #5 it’s all new everything going on here. New costume, new powers (last issue), new cast member and new status quo. A few variant covers display our girl in her new duds, but it’s the Kris Anka design cover that comes in as the most interesting. However, it’s the Siya Oum $30 variant that is sold out already. Will Marvel ever get the Spider-Woman character right? Will the new everything and a new cast member after only four issues do the trick? Maybe. Maybe not.

So what do you do when you have a fan favorite title of a b character, a character like Hawkeye? Well you end it and start over right? Huh? Yep, when you’re Marvel you can do things like that. All New Hawkeye #1; There are possible hints that there could be new things happening in the way of a new character or maybe not. Either way, the Hawkeye character solidified himself as a character that fans will back if the right story and art comes with it. We shall see what comes of this series and if it becomes as hot as its predecessor.

DC Comics start their new gimmick this week with the movie variant covers. There is nothing really to gain monetarily here unless you really want to work for it. First off, if you see or want a movie variant you like, buy it! If you like the way the movie variant looks or it’s a homage to a favorite movie of yours, buy it! They are all cool looking covers. That all said, if you want to get some unique comics to sell then do this. Get the Detective Comics #40 this week; a Matrix homage, and get it signed by Keenu Reeves, Brian Stelfreeze and Francis Manapul. The latter two are the easy gets. Getting Keenu would be the hard get and the prize, but hey nothing is impossible. Be sure to have that witness verify your signature, get a 9.8 grade and you have a very nice flip variant for yourself. Good luck!

All_New_Hawkeye_1_InvestComics Blackcross_1_InvestComics Citizen_of_the_Galaxy_1_InvestComicsAnd DC’s Convergence is right around the corner. Check out Earth 2 #32 as Darkseid is kicking some major as*. Only a few copies of this one being sold on Ebay right now. And New 52 Futures End #44 will lead directly into the Convergence story line. And the cover is absolutely surperb! Only two copies of this one on Ebay. Better grab it! Click the RED link before it’s too late!

As Convergence is taking shape, Marvel’s Secret Wars is shaping up too. Check out another prelude issue in Avengers #42 and Avengers World #18 revels some answers for fans following that story.

An interesting Marvel team-up book will have fans very happy this week. Check out Guardians Team-Up #1. Not only will the Avengers be teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, but the creative team will be Brian Michael Bendis and Arthur Adams. Sweet. Did you know the old Guardians of the Galaxy team first appeared together with the Avengers in Avengers #167 in 1978? (Click that RED link if you want to bid/buy that comic right now). The newer team appeared together with the Avengers in the War of Kings Saga #1 (early 2009). The new GOTG also appeared together with the Avengers in late 2009 in Guardians of the Galaxy #18.

A bunch of number one issues to check out this week. CLICK the RED Links and go straight to Ebay. Buy or Bid on the comics right now within this article!

IDW’s Citizen of the Galaxy #1 is sold out already at Midtown Comics. Although it’s not too often IDW really commands big bucks in the aftermarket, they put out some great stuff for the fans. Just a heads up too, there are only two issues of this comic up on Ebay at the present moment. You may want to grab one in case your local shop doesn’t have any. Click the RED link and buy/bid on one now if you really want it.

Descender #1 looks like a hit right out of the gate for Image. The team of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen sure does help. Couple that with an interesting story and you have demand. So much so that the variants on Ebay are selling wildly. If you’re in the market for one of these, you better click the RED link to get in early here. Looks like we may have a hot book here. That said, remember one thing. Sitting on a modern hot variant does not always equate to money a year from now. Studies, graphs, charts and indicators reflect a severe decline in many of the hot modern variants. If you can make money on your purchase, then do so. Waiting is a sure sign of two things. Greed and you possibly losing money. Be a speculator and not a fanboy that falls in love with a comic you intend to flip. And the other rule, fall in love and buy comics to read because you love the comic and never intend on flipping it too. Simple.

Avengers_42_InvestComics Avengers_World_18_InvestComics Guardians_Team_up_1_InvestComicsThe awesome talents of Eric Powell delivers Big Man Plans #1 from Image Comics. This comic is showing a few of the regular covers on Ebay, but only one variant at the moment. Seems like a distributing story to read to yourself and not the kiddies.

Speaking of awesome talents, Warren Ellis steps to the plate with Blackcross #1 (Dynamite Entertainment). Quite a few very nice variants hit with this release. None of the covers are covers that doesn’t turn the eye. Lets hope the inside is as good as the outside. With Warren Ellis at the helm, it’s probably, most likely going to be a good inside.

…..And more great talent with a debut issue this week. Con Job #1 by Jimmy Palmiotti and cover by Amanda Conner. A very unique story that centers around comic conventions. Jimmy knows a thing or two about doing conventions, so inspiration was probably not a hard find here for Jimmy with this story. Sounds like a fun comic and one to definitely pick up.

Nailbiter and Hack Slash meet up in the same comic; Nailbiter Hack Slash #1. Nailbiter #1 was a big deal for a little while there. If you click the RED link you’ll see there are still plenty of Nailbiter #1‘s signed/graded copies being watched. Funny thing here is that there are no Nailbiter Hack Slash #1 comics available on Ebay at the time of this article. I’m quite sure there will be plenty in due time, just not right now.

CLICK the RED Links and go straight to Ebay. Buy or Bid on the comics right now within this article!

Vampirella will venture into new alternate universe stories in Altered States Vampirella #1. Looks like she’ll encounter some zombies for the first time on a zombie planet. No copies on Ebay at this time.

Descender_1_InvestComics Earth_2-32_InvestComics Nameless_2_InvestComicsGrant Morrison’s Nameless #1 received high praise from fans and sold out quickly. Will the trend follow this week with Nameless #2?

Pussycats #0 is one of those gratuitous covers that will catch a fanboys eye to pick up and look at. Although this is probably very true, the story does seem intriguing. A sexy thriller put out by an independent comic company called E-Comix. No copies on Ebay available at this time. A rare comic that if it gets hot, like it’s cover, we could see some price spiking here.

A few more number one comics to check out this week are; Neverboy #1 (Dark Horse), Winterworld #0, Halogen #1 and Monster Motors Curse of Minivan Helsing #1.

Finally, remember Mad Libs? Those were fantastic and still are. They are always coming out and are a fantastic cursor in helping develop command of the English language. Nouns, Verbs, Pronouns, etc. Anyway, pick up a copy of DC Comics Super-Hero Mad Libs #1 and have hours of fun with the kids while they learn! A great way to spend time with your older friends and family too. Use your own adult “action words” to make your super-hero do “special things”.

Invest wisely. Read comics.

Some quick reminders from InvestComics coming up. Reminders on how to be a true modern speculator. InvestComics has covered this area quite a few times over the years, but a refresher course is always helpful isn’t it?!

Fantastic_Four_Vol_1_52 Gwen_Stacy_1_InvestComics New_Teen_Titans_Vol_1_2 Iron_Man_Vol_1_55

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Spider-Gwen craze will hit its pinnacle pitch this Wednesday. Well maybe not it’s monetary/speculative peak, but the craze will be at it’s all time high. Spider-Gwen #1 will be released with a ridiculous amount of variant covers. Not Star Wars #1 ridiculous, but ridiculous enough. The variant cover chase has become a huge fad and any true speculator buying them should be doing so for one reason. To sell it. Sell it sooner rather than later. This site has been saying for years that if you are a true modern comic book speculator that you do not fall in love with your comics. Preferably your moderns. Fall in love with the ones you enjoy reading or you just dig for your own reasons, but don’t fall in love with that Edge of Spider-Verse #2 Greg Land variant 9.8 graded that recently sold for $849. There is no way in the comic God’s creation that comic will be $849 one year from now. Do you honestly think this comic has more staying power than a 7.0 Thanos first appearance? A 6.5 Black Panther first appearance? A 9.8 Deathstroke first appearance? All of these books just mentioned, in those grades are cheaper than the first appearance of Spider-Gwen on Ebay right now. Again. Do you honestly think Spider-Gwen can hold a mantle to any of these characters? The realist will say no. The fanboy……well that’s a different story. The point here really is to sell your modern books when they reach stratosphere status as EOSV #2 has done. If you bought the comic for cover price and could make $800+ on it, sell it now. You can get a bunch of first appearance Deathstroke’s with your $800. Any true speculator in their right mind will buy a raw New Teen Titans #2 NM for $120 and hold onto that book. Deathstroke has staying power and has earned the right to command that type of money. Greed and bad speculation right now is driving the 9.8 first Spider-Gwen close to $900. It’s absurd to pay that type of money on a modern book that is only a few months old. Are there some modern books that are worth spending a little bit of money on and holding onto it? Sure there are, but no one is going to just “give” you a New Mutants #98 for $50 or $100. That’s a high priced modern that has too many copies available out there. Not saying it’s not worth the asking price, but you ever see that showoff on Facebook that is displaying 8 graded/signed copies of Deadpool’s first? Yes we all have and guess what? It’s not the same person showing them off. Too accessible for such a high priced book. This spells for a bit of a collapse later on for a book like that. “Well Jay isn’t this a speculation site?” Well yes it is, but it’s also a site that will always inform you of a bad deal too. We’re not salesmen here. We tell it like it is. Be smart investors, don’t think any variant or high priced modern that sells for an absorbent amount of money today will sell for the same thing 365 days from now. I almost guarantee it won’t in most cases. Star Wars #1 variants….you think those variants will be the same price one year from now? Simply answer, no. The first rule of the InvestComics speculator 101 is not to fall in love with the modern book you bought to flip. Holding onto it too long will put you in the red. Many years of Wall Street experience has showed me how clients lose a lot of money because they hold and hold and hold and hold. I cannot stress enough to regular readers of this column (which you know already) and new readers (which will learn now), when you have a chance to make that profit. Take it. Maybe the market will go higher after you sell, but you know something? It’s not your commodity to sell anymore, you don’t own it, stop following it. Move on to something else. If the market collapses after you sell? Tell yourself “good job”and move along. Too much self rewarding will catch up with you. These are some rules to follow. Enjoy what you do. Never showboat, never look back, never look too far ahead, look to the immediate future and determine what is the right time to sell or buy.

Avenging_Spider_Man_19_InvestComics Fantastic_Four_Sleepwalker_InvestComics Sleepwalker_1_InvestComics Sleepwalker_5_InvestComics

The new Deathstroke series is kicking all sorts of as* lately. Tony Daniel continues to pull double duty as writer and artist. Deathstroke #5 will have the biggest fight the New 52 has seen. Deathstroke vs Batman with Harley Quinn caught in the middle of it. Awesome stuff here.

Fantastic Four #643 will feature the return of Sleepwalker. Seems he’s a big deal in the back issue market these days! Sleepwalker has appeared sporadically throughout the years within the Marvel Universe. At one time disappearing off the Marvel radar for 9 years without appearing in a book. Marvel didn’t deem him very important at one time. Things are about to change a little bit though. Sleepwalker last appeared in Avenging Spider-Man #19 (2013) and 3 years prior to that in 2010. So coming up in this weeks Fantastic Four #643 will be his welcome back party, although he did appear in the previous issue. However, this issue he appears on the cover. It seems Sleepwalker will play a vital role in the new Marvel Universe coming up. His first appearance is in Sleepwalker #1 (1991). His first team-up with Spidey occurred only a few issues later in Sleepwalker #5 (1991). What a fantastic Bert Blevins cover to boot!

Big changes for the Marvel Universe will begin in New Avengers #30. A prelude to the Secret Wars. A must get for fans waiting for that epic adventure to begin.

It seems we’re not quite done with Spider-Verse. Check out Amazing Spider-Man #15 to witness the repercussions of what took place in the Spider-Verse saga.

The secret origin of Teen Abomination will take place in Superior Iron Man #5. Teen Abomination first appeared 4 issues prior in Superior Iron Man #1.

Endgame part 5; Batman #39. The next to last issue of this great story line. Check out the backup story as the prisoners learn the truth about the Joker. A ridiculously unbelievable cover by Greg Capullo here.

Batman_39_InvestComics_New_52 Deathstroke_5_InvestComics Secret_Origins_10_InvestComics Thor_Annual_1_InvestComics

WWE fans have a Marvel comic to look forward to this Wednesday. Well let’s correct that, UFC fans have a Marvel comic to look forward to this Wednesday. CM Punk will write a Thor story in Thor Annual #1 along with art from Rob Guillory (Chew). For those of you who don’t know, CM Punk “was”a very big WWE star (according to both of my younger boys) and I know him as a dude that is leaving WWE to fight for real in the UFC. Fun times for UFC fans! Anyway, this is CM Punks first comic book work. A backup just in case he cannot fight for real? Just kidding CM, go get em!

King Prince Valiant #1 from Dynamite Entertainment will have not one, not two, but three Rob Liefeld variants. Liefeld fans rejoice!

D4VE #1 (IDW) will feature a Fiona Staples cover. IDW comics do not usually sustain aftermarket status, but this Fiona Staples gal, she’s got skill and will be killing it for years to come. Get this interesting comic because the story looks like a good one and it’s a cool Fiona cover.

Mister_X_1984_InvestComics Mister_X_2015_InvestComicsWhen Mister X #1 came out in 1984 from Vortex Comics, it was a hot comic. Fast forward to 2015 and we get Mister X Razed #1 from Dark Horse Comics. Incidentally, the 1984 number one issue was Mr. X’s first appearance.

IDW will try a spinoff series from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles books. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutanimals #1 will follow an oddball cast of 5. The Mutanimals first appeared sporadically in several TMNT comics, but they did manage to get off their own series back in 1991’s Mighty Mutanimals #1 (Archie Comics). The new series will be a fun read, check it out.

Firestorm is a hot commodity on the Flash show right now. That dude is total bad as*! His back issue market is moving just a tad as Firestorm begins his popularity role once again with the fans. So with that said, Secret Origins #10 on Wednesday has Firestorm’s secret origin by Dan Jurgens! Only ONE copy of this comic available on Ebay right now. Better grab it if you want it.

They’re Not Like Us #3 from Image Comics will continue its great storytelling and good sales.

Suiciders_1_InvestComics Superioir_Iron_Man_1_InvestComics Superior_Iron_Man_5_InvestComics Thor_Annual_1_InvestComics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suiciders #1 will be a fantastic Vertigo title. Check out that awesome Jock variant cover too. Only one available on Ebay right now. Click the link…

Speaking of cool variants to check out, look at the photo variant available for Orphan Black #1. Great job by IDW here. And Archie Comics makes their move into the serious superhero fray with Black Hood #1. This comic is accompanied by a few variants. Nice ones too.

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY JANUARY 2015

Top 100 Hottest Comic Titles during EARLY JANUARY 2015

HotComics201501Early

Bi-weekly column and list compiled by comics historian Terry Hoknes of www.HoknesComics.com – hoknes@hotmail.com

This chart is styled like the old classic Wizard Magazine Top 10 Hottest Comic charts that were published every month in the 1990′s.

This list is updated every 2 weeks. This list is compiled from my non-stop research of the current market. I believe these were the most demand and growing in value books this month. This list focuses on all regular edition covers. (Variants are not listed otherwise they would likely dominate the entire list due to instant high prices and calculated small print runs). If you think I have missed any hot MODERN titles/issues please let me know. Here are my picks of what I believe are the hottest comics at this very moment from all sold out releases of MODERN comics online based on back issue sales ABOVE cover price.

Note these are all the “hot” recent sold comics that your comic shops will not have still on the shelf for cover price. However many speculators will hunt their local comic shops looking for that “hot” book that is still on the shelf – sometimes you find them!

This market report is based on very current constant online sales. Number of sales online above cover and the amount above cover price are the criteria I use for ranking books highest on the list.

(If you spot an error or a forgotten book/price please let me know)

MARKET REPORT:

#1 EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2 (MARVEL 2014) 1st app of new Gwen Stacy Spider-woman had a high print run of 50,000 but yet still sold out with sales continuing 3 months in a row now up as high as $60.00. 1:25 ratio variant cover now up to $250.00. A new ongoing series debuts Feb 2015. 2nd printing released in October also sold out instantly with sales also up to $15.00 each for Marvel’s hottest new character of 2014. 3rd printing in Nov 2014 sold as high as $15.00 each. 4th printing also sold out and up a bit. Literally thousands of copies sold instantly above cover of the hottest Marvel comic of 2014.

#11 STAR WARS #1 ACTION FIGURE VARIANT (MARVEL 2015) Huge buzz created a sellout of 980,000 copies of the return of Star Wars to Marvel in January 2015 – many variants did very well but the action figure variant was so popular it started a series of action figure variants that have all doubled in value quickly.

#12 THE WALKING DEAD (Image) With the current season of the TV show airing speculators are continually jumping on the original comics that tie in to new episodes which are now currently up to about issue #69. #127 was the first truly hot key issue since #108 a year earlier. #127 began a new storyline with new direction and new character and up to $13.00 a copy a week after release with 2nd printing on the the way. #53 is super hot with the introduction of another comic character into the TV series. #108 1st app Ezekiel and #110 origin and battle of Ezekiel with Michonne. All back issues #1-110 are sold out and bring above cover prices. #92 and #93 extremely hot at $30.00 each. Retailers upped their orders yet again starting with #109 onwards after the sellout of #108. This is the highest print runs have ever been (not counting #100). By May 2014 the more recent issues #100-108 had doubled in price with #108 now at $22.00. Demand in spring of 2014 grew strong on speculation for issues #60-70 as the TV series approached those issues.

#14 SPIDER-WOMAN #1 (MARVEL 2014) Manara 1:50 variant sold up to $125.00 copy with tons of pre-press scandal about the porn artist drawing a risque female sexy variant cover. Sold out quickly even the regular cover.

THE SIXTH GUN (Oni) – All 31 issues sold out – many not even on ebay and low print runs. Sold a #1 for $250 in Mid April. #1 now at $90.00. Prices have dropped by about 70% since their peak from April 2013 when the news of the potential TV show was at its highest hype. Still some of the rarest comics to collect will keep prices and sales up on this title. The image speculating boom peaked by April 2013 and orders were raised drastically on issues #30-32 which were the highest since issue #2 three years earlier.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 2/11/15

(Click the RED and buy or bid on your comic now)

DC Comics have announced their plans to end the New 52 and begin Divergence. The epic Divergence storyline will center on Darkseid. InvestComics covered Darkseid with a tremendous checklist that needs to be seen right HERE. Do yourself a favor and go there now. We posted the link on our Facebook page already and there was a great response to an already great article from 2013! The links on the Darkseid checklist link directly back to Ebay so that you can get those appearances in Legion of Super-Heroes, Batman and a bunch more at very affordable prices. Still not heading over there? How about a Darkseid appearance in a Batman book that only occurred ONCE?! And it’s a modern book. A cheap one at that…….for now! Better get over there before those Bat books are gone off Ebay. Remember, click the link and save the time of searching. InvestComics has already done it for you!

There are a few takeaways that speculators need to be aware of with the DC news. With the Divergence announcement came the first mention of some new series’ to emerge. There are a few standouts and InvestComics has your back here……

Starfire will be HOT. Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiotti will bring Starfire to the next level. Aftermarket happiness here. How about you jump on a few of these first appearances of Starfire? How about the very very affordable Silver Age first appearance in Teen Titans #18 (1968). Although it’s not really the same Starfire we all know and love, but who cares?!  Starfire #1 from 1976; Starfire #1. How about DC Comics Presents #26 (1980)? This is the first New Teen Titans, Cyborg, Raven and Starfire. This comic should have been in you collection 7 years ago when InvestComics told you about it, but we’re just saying. New 52 first right here; Red Hood and the Outlaws #11 (2011). We cannot stress this enough, Starfire is an uptick. That’s it.

Prez #1 will debut and you need to click this and buy it: Prez #1 (1973).

The awesome Omega Men will debut with their book. Get a comic that has been suggested several times over the years on InvestComics; Green Lantern #141 (1981). Only a few copies exist right now on Ebay. You should click that link and make sure they don’t go bye bye. Also check out the awesome Omega Men #1 (1983) because it was a great series and that book will also garner some attention soon. Plenty of copies available as great prices, click away and buy it.

And finally, how about Bat-Mite #1? Yep! We’ll take it! His first appearance is right here in the Golden age Detective Comics #267 (1959).

Plenty of great reads and speculative comics to choose from this week. Be sure to click the RED links when we are talking about comics to pick up. The Red link will bounce you right over to Ebay so that the reader/speculator can either bid or buy it right there on the spot. So if your local comic shop is sold out of a particular book or didn’t order that InvestComics Hot Pick, now you can get it without a problem. Well presuming it’s not so super hot already and you get outbid! That’s why sometimes it’s best to hit the buy it now option and be done with it. Be sure to click on those links because some of the recommendations go fast. There only may be 4 or 5 copies available and they go fast! Last week we told you about New Zodiax #1 and the four copies that were available at that time at cover price were scoped up. They are now going for at least $10 a piece. Grant Morrison’s Nameless #1 was a sell out and a local comic shop has a $10 price tag with a sign “one per customer”. The link here directs you to many of the regular issues at cover price still. The variants? Well those are within the $10 range. The Wytches #4 Babs Tarr variant is still available, but you better get your hands on this one before too long.

Darth_Vader_1_InvestComicsDivinity_1_InvestComicsA little while ago the Marvel Star Wars craze hit. It hit hard too. So hard that Marvel has announced a second printing of one of the biggest selling comics in a long while. So what does this all mean in the real world. The comic book world that is. Well for one, the Star Wars story was great, so that was a good thing! In the speculative world? ……..I will go Latino here; “no bueno”. For those of you who failed Spanish class, skipped it or didn’t take it at all, “no bueno” means “no good”. Simply put here, there are too many copies of Star Wars #1 to ever hold it’s value. There is absolutely no redeeming value, other than a good read that will let that book hold its current worth. I already explained this a bit when the comic was about to be released. There are no first appearances, no movie tie-ins, no revelation, just a good read. This said, unless you get a special Star Wars #1 blank cover sketch that is a one of a kind, then you have……well a one of a kind! This will sustain its core value because of the one of a kind factor. Getting a 1:500 ratio comic means that you and a whole lot of other collectors have that book believe it or not. Considering how many regular copies there are in total, yes there are a lot out there, but more people still possess the same exact book as you do. Nothing different, same book. A Star Wars #1 sketch cover done by anyone is a one of a kind. Never the same anywhere. Can’t be, it’s actually impossible. Like a snow flake.

Now we arrive to the second phase of Marvel and their new Star Wars toy. Marvel will go with the biggest bad ass of all time. Darth Vader #1 will see a ridiculous amount of variant covers just like Star Wars #1 did. They same applies here as did/does the Star Wars issues. If you’re in the market to cash in, you better get your variants and flip them quick. Put those signed/graded copies on a fast track and throw them on Ebay. Do not fall in love with your signed/graded copy thinking that your kids will reep any benefits later on in life. This will simply not happen with this comic. One factor would help the cause and that is the same that would have applied to Star Wars #1 but doesn’t. A first appearance, a movie tie-in or a major revelation. Otherwise you have a Darth Vader #1 that is just a great story here. Nothing wrong with that either! Get the variants because you enjoy them. You enjoy that cover because it strikes a cord in you. Art is subjective, what you may like someone else may not and that too is okay. Buy what YOU like, but do not go in thinking you will have a major spec book on your hands 10 years from now. Not Happening. That all said, there are some amazingly sick covers. Click the Vader links and check them out!

Spider_Woman_InvestComics Harley_Quinn_Valentines_InvestComics Empty_1_InvestComics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

InvestComics has been saying this for months and months, get Spider-Verse comics. This week it’s all over. The best Spider-Man story to come out in years will end in Amazing Spider-Man #14. How will it all end? Will there be even MORE introductions of new Spidey characters? A re-introduction? Who knows how it will end?! This was a fantastic series and we all hate to see it end, but we wait with baited breath to see how it will tie up. And check out some of the variants on the link. Sweet!

Every end has a beginning right? Spider-Woman #4 will be a Spider-Verse epilogue. Seems Spider-Woman came out of the Spider-Verse with some major changes. Best keep an eye out to see what is going on.

Divinity #1 looks like a hit for Valiant comics. Empty #1 form Image Comics looks every bit as full as its title suggests otherwise. Only 4 copies floating on Ebay right now. Click the link if you want it now. InvestComics has always supported Action Lab Entertainment with its fun reads and this week we support Priceless Pirate Princess #1. No copies available on Ebay right now. Harvester #1 from Legendary Comics looks like a good read.

….And just in time for Valentines Day; Harley Quinn Valentines Day Special #1. This comic is showing some decent signs of uptick on Ebay. Best get in there and take a look!

Remember to click the RED links to get right onto Ebay. InvestComics does the work for you!

 

Invest wisely. Read comics.

Carpe Diem.

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:

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 1/14/15

This Wednesday, comic book collectors will probably witness record breaking history (or an extremely close second). Not so sure a record breaker one could be proud of, but it’s a first. This InvestComics Hot Picks contains the most questions ever posed in one article, so get ready for lots of answers too!

InvestComics_Star_Wars_2015_Marvel

Star Wars (2015 Marvel) #1 will have the most variant covers ever released with its debut. As a regular reader of InvestComics, most of you know we feel about variant covers. A little reminder; variant covers are an awesome addition to the hobby. You go on Wednesday to your local comic shop, see a cover (eye candy) you like and you buy it. No one is forcing you to buy it, but you have an option to purchase it if you’d like. Continuing; are variants really necessary? No they are not. That said, as mentioned, they not only give the customer an option, but it also gives the possibility of an investment. The investment part is where many speculators fail miserable in building their collection. Speculators need be reminded as InvestComics has spoken about time after time that most modern variants will not hold their value. There is however a way to make some very good cash flow on some of them. InvestComics readers know this by following this article each and every week for 9 years now. Buying random variants for $50 or $100 or more because they look pretty will probably have you in red. Getting in the black actually requires some thinking and knowledge when you’re buying modern comics, especially the variants. InvestComics has been here for you regarding these guidelines and we’re going to be here again when the record breaker hits this Wednesday.

Another thing that is said on InvestComics repeatedly is the ridiculousness of the variants. It really is not necessary to have so many variants for any comic book, but here’s the thing. Marvel Comics (Disney) and any other comic company are here to make money and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Money is what keeps the machines rolling. The artist, writers, inkers, colorist, printers, etc all need money. Most comic companies want to deliver the best product they can to their consumer. Another way of reaching a wide audience, creating hype and to make money is to give consumers variant covers. The comic companies are not making $500 on that Joe Quesada Star Wars variant, but they’ll make it on the back end by getting the store owners to order more of the regular variant covers, thus creating the more expensive variant the consumer wants so bad. So in the end, the house always wins and the speculator is left guessing what to gamble on. The question; should I pluck down $200 for a Star Wars #1 variant or shouldn’t I? Long term? Short answer, no way.

What about Star Wars #1 should the speculator know? Well let’s get the first and most important thing out of the way. Buy this comic no matter what because it’s going to be a fun story. It picks up after Star Wars Episode IV The New Hope. We’ve all been down this road before as far as a story picking up within this time frame, however it’s a new spin. Artist John Cassaday and writer Jason Aaron are bringing their A-game. Have you’ve seen the previews? Very impressive.

Now the “other stuff”. When you arrive to your local comic shop you’ll probably notice that one entire section of wall or space where the new comics are will be dedicated to Star Wars #1. The option to purchase one of the gazillion variant covers will be available to you. So many choices, what to do what to do the speculator will ask himself/herself. Well the answer lies within the old expression back on my Wall Street days; Buy low sell high. But in this case it’s going to be a bit of the opposite. Why you ask? Because if you’re going to want to make any sort of money here, a few hundred bucks, you’ll have to buy the more expensive variant, get it signed and graded (must be a 9.8 or higher. MUST) and flip it. You’ll have to flip the comic so fast that the comic grading company’s plastic will still be warm. Can this also be done with the “cheaper” variants? Yes, but there will be very little money there because you and every other speculator will be doing those comics. It’s the $200+ variants that will bring the most for your buck during the crazy short lived aftermarket. Supply will exceed demand.

Why is it that the aftermarket will be short lived? Well, first the supply and demand issue will be a huge factor. Also, the hype of this comic will be the driving force (no pun intended) behind the book. Once the dust clears and speculators realize that this particular Star Wars comic bears no redeeming value, it’s a dump fest. By redeeming value I mean that there is absolutely nothing holding on the INSIDE of the comic to keep its value. Is there a first appearance? Is there a major story plot line that will appear in the new films? Is there an error on a certain variant and recalls will occur? Is there a lawsuit pending for any reason on this comic? Did John Cassaday sneak in a DC character in the background someplace? None of these do not seem likely right? So ask yourself, where does the true value (besides a fantastic read) come in?

So where does the value lie then if any? As already stated, one of the values will be in the more expensive variants. The true value in this lies in the past though. 1977, 1980, and 1986 to be more precise. Here’s the thing. If judgment prevails for the speculator they will take most of that extra money they want to spend on a pretty variant and buy a Marvel Comics Illustrated: Empire Strikes Back (1980). This would be the first true appearance of Boba Fett. How about you get a Star Wars #42 (1980) too? The first appearance of Boba Fett in an actual Star Wars comic. Or even still, how about a Star Wars #68 (1982)? The origin of Boba Fett. The original Star Wars #1 (1977) from Marvel? And how about the RARE last issue (we like rare don’t we?) Star Wars #107 (1986). There are so many other Star Wars comics to invest in for long term as well, do your research, speculate. Here is the thing this speculator is leaning towards, If you feel so inclined to buy a Star Wars Variant, buy a Boba Fett one……

So why the mention of Boba Fett so much? Rumor has it that in-between the new Star Wars films will be a possible Boba Fett film. So why not cash in on this now? Yes the film would be 3 or 4 years out from now if it ever does happen, but buying the first appearance(s) of a character as popular as Boba Fett is always a good thing. Better than pouring money into a variant that will probably meet the same fate as the Death Star.

Buy what you like. One lesson InvestComics will always preach as well. If you like a certain variant and it cost $300, then buy it. If you are tired of seeing the variant covers, stop buying them. It’s your will and right to do so. If you think that variant will sustain its value, then it’s your right to think that too. This speculator will look at the other wall this Wednesday at the comic shop, you know the one. The one with all of the cool Bronze age back issues on it. Boba Fett will be pointing that gun at me daring me to buy that issue for $75. Yes Boba, lets dance for a while. The 2015 party will be short lived.

Doctor_Strange_InvestComicsFor weeks and months InvestComics has given the speculator a heads up about the entire Spider-Verse platform. A great story accompanied by a boatload of introductions and reintroductions. So many that it’s almost impossible to keep up with.Spider-Verse (2014) #2 will be another crazy issue with a ton of things going down inside of it. We cannot stress enough, buy the Spider-Verse comics, cross-overs and all, just like the Gwen book, another character will break-out. The Spider-Verse story is Dan Slott at his finest.

Amazing X-Men (2013) #15 will have Cyttorak as a focal point in part one of The Once And Future Juggernaut. With Dr. Strange being so hot these days, this comic gives us all a great excuse to buy a Doctor book! Check out Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #44 (1992) for the first appearance of Cyttorak. Although earlier mentions and a stone figure of Cyttorak exist in other comics, this is his first true appearance.

DC Comics will compete with Marvel this week and have their own huge number one debut with Mortal Combat X (2014 DC) #1. Just kidding of course. Seems DC is staying out of the way of Marvel this week. But they forge ahead nonetheless with the release of a Mortal Combat comic. History shows us that Mortal Mortal_Kombat_InvestComicsKombat has always been spelled with a letter K as opposed to a letter C in the word Kombat. A DC solicit error? What gives here? Anyway, DC gave the Mortal Kombat lure a crack once. That occurred in 2008. Now they are back at it again 7 years later. Why? It’s to hype the new game coming out and why not really? Everyone loves a good butt kicking comic don’t they? And just for the record, the first Mortal Kombat comic debuted in 1992 from Midway. It’s a hard get in NM condition. $60+ on Ebay.

Marvel continues their hyperbole with All New Ultimates (2014) #12. A comic that guarantees the “Marvel Comics to end all Marvel Comics”. Check it out! Awesome read here probably.

Secret+Wars_Spider_Man_WWE_SpiderMan_InvestComics….In issue number eight we learned that Miles is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Learn more in Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #9! Look at that Dale Keown cover to Avengers (2012 5th Series) #40. Thanos is awesome right? No reason to mention this comic other than the awesomeness of the cover.

Oh yes, maybe there actually is a reason to mention that cover. A perfect lead in to checking out the cover to WWE (2013 Papercutz) #11. Boy does that homage cover look familiar!

Thanos_Dale_Keown_InvestComicsSee you soon. May the force be with you.

Invest wisely. Carpe Diem.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/18/13

If you were a comic book fan back in the 90’s you will remember the fun that followed the Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man run. A fellow by the name of Erik Larsen took over the reins for a while and the ride was just as superb a ride as from McFarlane. So many characters introduced and one of which will be returning this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #24. Check out Cardiac in his first appearance by the stellar Mr. Larsen in Amazing Spider-Man #344(1990). Before Cardiac was his villainy self he was Dr. Wortham in Amazing Spider-Man #342(1989). Fun times those 80’s/90’s Spidey runs were. Fun times…….So in closing, with the recent Spider-Man 2 trailer coming out, it’s a safe bet to think we will see more Spidey coming our way. Actually it’s a sure bet, Sony pictures said so. The question remains. Who is to get the tap on the shoulder to get in there next? No one knows, but maybe, just maybe Cardiac will be answering that call. You never know!

[scrollGallery id=325]

A return appearance and an end for a Spider-Man book this week. Check out the last issue of Scarlet Spider (2012 2nd Series) #25 as many questions are answered with some surprises as well.

The new Lobo shows up in the latest Supergirl book. Check out Supergirl (2011 5th Series) #26 for that. If you are one that pines for the old Lobo, don’t forget that his first appearance is in a very affordable comic; Omega Men #3 (1983).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #26 will give readers the retelling (new 52 style) of Two-Face’s origin. Batman’s foe first appeared in Detective Comics #66 (1942). He’s a great villain, but doesn’t deserve the cash that some dealers/sellers ask, but they’ll get it nonetheless. Staying with the Batman theme here. The successful Harley Quinn #0 leads into Harley Quinn (2013) #1 this week. Expect sellouts on this one. Harley is a popular one……for now. Do not put all of your eggs in one basket here. Harley is a cool character, but she will not sustain an uptick in the long run. That said, the Adam Hughes variant looks like a sold out book with nice profit potential there. Signature Series would be a nice way to go with this one. As always, high grade too!

Sinister Dexter (2013 IDW) #1 will make its U.S. Debut. A popular comic strip in the UK, now comes to IDW. If this comic hits right, you may want to look for 2000 A.D. #992 (1996) as the earliest first appearance found. Probably nothing to get your hopes over, so don’t go ga ga over this.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #8 will feature the debut on Monet. It’s always nice to catch a first appearance in an X-Men book, so be sure to check this out.

A recent fan of InvestComics reached out to thank me for some Hot Pick advise. InvestComics recommend Voice in the Dark #1 (sold out, second print already printed) as he flipped the comic for $12. This Wednesday Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #2 will hit the shelves. What will this comic bring? The speculator always has to be careful with the second issue. The number two issue (and 3) are essentially the most vital in a series as far as the speculation market goes. Why is that? The follow-up issue to a number one issue must be met with the same interest as the first or the series will fall flat in the aftermarket. Word of mouth will get around as a YEA or Nay on this series after Wednesday. You must keep a pulse on what the fans are saying as well as the aftermarket. Being on time is another huge factor, but we’re talking about interest in storyline here right now. The story has to captivate the interest of the fan in the second issue. If it does not, the aftermarket is nil.

All New X-Men #20Locke and KeySome number one issues to check out this week; Teen Titans Go (2013) #1 will be a “go” to book this week. Look for tremendous interest here. A cool storyline hits Illegitimates (2013 IDW) #1 and check out the Bill Willingham variant on this one, another zombie book 8-bit Zombies (2013 Antarctic Press) #1, an interesting plot line in Midas Flesh (2013 Boom) #1, another Star Wars comic Star Wars Darth Vader and Cry of Shadows (2013) #1, Ghost is back Ghost (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Lisa gets her own book Wonderful World of Lisa Simpson (2013) #1.

Also check out the awesome variant cover from Locke and Key (2013 7th Series) Alpha #2. Dave Sim pays homage to Spidey.

Rounding out this week we see the cover to All New X-Men (2012) #20. Every so often I link fans back to the InvestComics special I ran over a year ago called Romantic X-Men Images. It’s a collection of X-Men covers that depict various X-Men team members in the act of public displays of affection. Why this particular team has so many covers like this is a bit mind boggling really. So I will add the cover of All New X-Men #20 to this collection of Romantic X-Men Covers. If you missed the original article with the covers, click HERE.

Thanks again for your patience everyone. See you next week!

Invest wisely.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/11/13

Just a couple of weeks ago, InvestComics were making a statement on how important the Marvel Cosmic Universe will be in a very short while. Actually, InvestComics was reiterating what we have been saying for 7 years now. The particular comic and character we were speaking of was Nova. This week Nova comes into the fold once again. Nova (2013 5th Series) #11 promises to give readers of the Cosmic likeness a very very big surprise in this issue. Not sure what it is, even if I did know, I wouldn’t spoil it. The Marvel Cosmic Universe will have the Marvel U feel the effects, so buckle in tight fans. This is the beginning of what InvestComics has warned you about for years. The Marvel Cosmic Universe is about to take center stage. You best be on top of your Cosmic game.

[scrollGallery id=323]

Uncanny X-Men (2013 3rd Series) #15 will be an Inhumanity tie in with a “new comer” on board. The name is Kris Anka. One of the earliest works of this fine artist can be found in the Image graphic novel PopGun (2007). His earliest comic work came in Guarding the Globe #6 (Image Comics 2011).

Staying on topic with new creators in new places, check out Marvel Knights Hulk (2013) #1 with writer Joe Keatinge and artist Piotr Kowalski. If you are in the market for first works of newer creators, InvestComics can help you out with this one. Joe Keatinge’s first professional work as a colorists came in Masters of the Universe #4 (MVCreations 2004). His first writing duties came in Image Comics’ Ant #8 (2006). As for artist Piotr Kowalski; his first creative output came in his native country Poland in a book by the name Wiat Komiksu #4 (Egmont Polska 1998). His first American stint came in 2011 with Boom Studios’ Malignant Man #1 (2011). So not only do you get a great read with MKH #1 this week, but you get the inside scoop with the creators too from InvestComics. Mighty Avengers (2013) #4 Inhumanity tie in brings readers the New Ronin. The original Ronin first appeared in New Avengers #11 (2005) with that beauty of a David Finch cover. Huntress will be trailing a new villain in Worlds Finest (2012 3rd Series) #18. Check out who that will be. Looks like Owlman has some plans for Ultraman this week in Justice League (2011) #25. In the “in case you missed it department”, Justice League of America #29 (1964) gives us the first ever Ultraman. Doc Savage will get another crack at his own book this week in Doc Savage (2013 Dynamite) #1. The Doc may be appearing on the big screen as rumors do swirl all the time. Will it ever happen? If it does, look for a quick bump and then a quick flat line in his first appearance; Doc Savage magazine #1 (1933).

Comedy break; Two very funny solicits hit this week that have to make the reader/collector smile. First there was Superman Wonder Woman (2013) #3. The verbiage here reads “the ending of this comic is so shocking that it could mean the end of Superman and Wonder Woman together.” Really??! Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries may trump these two? We’re only three issues in DC please don’t threaten us with this already. Stop it, please. Too funny. Then you have Wolverine (2013 4th Series) #12. The verbiage reads like this “…the storyline the will change Wolverine as we know him forever!” Really??! Okay.

Now that we had our laugh, let’s get back to some other comics to check out this week. Three must get number one comics this week are sold out and will definitely see second prints following shortly. Krampus (2013 Image) #1, Lunita (2013 Amigo) #1, and Dead Body Road (2013 Image) #1. And for anyone keeping score here, Dead Body Road #1 will be written by Justin Jordan of the highly successful Luther Strode comic. A bit of a surprise with the almost sold out (will be probably by Friday/Saturday) Legends Dark Knight 100 Page Super Spectacular (2013) #1 this week. The reason for the surprise is the $9.99 price tag that accompanies the 100 page of goodness here. Fans are excited about the 100 pager for only $9.99 I guess. Way to go DC! Batman Black and White (2013) #4 brings in some fantastic talent once again. A must get every time it comes out. The future is now with Justice League 3000 (2013) #1. For no other reason than the super talents of Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis on this book, it’s a must check out comic. Uttering the words “new hero” or “new villain” is music to InvestComics’ ears. Check out Cataclysm Ultimate Spider-Man (2013) #2 for the sweet sounds of a new hero. Origin issues are fun too. Check out Astro City (2013 3rd Series) #7 for the origin of Winged Victory.

Here’s a quick list of sold out or about to be sold out number 1 and number 2 comics from this upcoming week (Special thanks to Terry Hoknes for drawing this list up every week!!): Steampunk Cinderella (2013) #1, Code Red (2013 Zenescope) #1, Protectors Inc (2013 Image) #2, Day Men (2013 Boom) #2, Indestructible (2013 IDW) #1, Drumhellar (2013 Image) #2, Halo Escalation (2013) #1, Sherlock Holmes Moriarty Lives (2013 Dynamite) #1, Grimm The Warlock (2013) #1, and Brain Boy (2013 Dark Horse) #0.

That’s it, see you next week. Remember the contest! Let’s get InvestComics to 3000!

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

Allow me to reminisce a bit; I need to inform everyone on something very spectacular and drive home a point, if there is one…….

There comes a certain time within a startup business that one can be very proud of their personal achievements. Although there have been several for InvestComics (my fourth child), the ones that stick out are the ones I will cherish and tell myself “Hey you CAN truly make this happen”. Meeting and interviewing the mecca of all comic book legends; Stan Lee, twice! That’s one. Having Mr. Lee utter the words of “InvestComics” on video, forever captured, encapsulated in time, that’s two. Meeting and interviewing my late father’s artist hero (which he never met); Bill Sienkiewicz, that’s three. Starting the InvestComics Publishing Company, that’s number four. Watching the traffic numbers climb to a number you’ve envisioned, and then exceeding it each and every year, that’s five. If I continue I will run out of Microsoft paper, but you get the idea here.

Yesterday one of those pinnacle moments happened again. InvestComics was accepted to write articles for Yahoo!. It’s one of those moments like the aforementioned you pinch yourself and say “wow” this is kinda awesome. I will post on Facebook and the InvestComics website the links to check out. They will be Exclusive articles on Yahoo! From InvestComics. These articles will ONLY appear on Yahoo! and no place else. So be sure to click on the links when they are provided so you can bask in the glory with me. Also, I ask to please share them. The articles are very simple now, but will be enhanced; as did everything else with InvestComics when first started. Here are two links to the very first articles on Yahoo!. InvestComics Top 10 – New Comic Releases and Back Issues for 10/30/13 and InvestComics Top Ten – New Comic Releases and Back Issues for 11/6/13. As stated, these articles will be more in-depth with the next releases. Baby steps…

Thanks to you……the fans…. for making this happen. Thank you for all of your support, none of this is possible without you.

Christmas is officially 24 days away. The InvestComics/Ratchet City Comics giveaway is still on, but we need to get to 3000 LIKES on Facebook in order to award the prize! The winner will receive a CGC Signature Series graded 9.8 Star Wars #1 (2013) Dark Horse comic signed by Brian Wood! Click HERE and SHARE the InvestComics Facebook page everywhere! Be sure to let us know so that you can be entered to win!! Let’s get to 3000!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Comic Releases 12/4/13

Just like last week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, not much in the back issue department to check out, but plenty of new issues to check out.

[scrollGallery id=322]

We start the week off with some first appearances that you may want to check out. Avengers (2012 5th Series) Annual #2013 will introduce Zamira. It’s always nice to make sure as a collector to pick up a first appearance in an Avengers book. Knowing full well that annuals don’t usually account to much, but the way things are rolling these days, you never know. So basically, I don’t care that it’s in an annual. Especially that it’s in an Avengers title. The speculator needs to get this comic. The Arrow series on CW is doing quite well for itself these days. The Green Arrow comic is faring okay though. With the release of Green Arrow (2011 4th Series) #26 this week, look for the introduction of some new villains in these pages. In the bizarre first appearance world of comics this week we have Longshot Saves The Marvel Universe (2013) #3. Check out Hulkvengers, Cosmic Carnage, Wolverine King of Vampires among others. Silly, yet once again you never know!

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #6 has our heroes dealing with Mongul. This big ol’ Thanos/Darkseid wannabe first appeared in DC Comics Presents #27 (1980). Check out that Jim Starlin Cover too! Oh of course Jim Starlin is involved with this cosmic character, hello?!

Having a name like Man-Bat is the equivalent of having the name She-Bat, right?? Well anyways, this week in Detective Comics (2011 2nd Series) #26, John Layman brings the She-Bat to the forefront. Here’s a quick trivia question, you must know the answer in 4 seconds flat. Ready? Where is the first appearance of She-Bat…..1,2,3,4 BZZZZ! Time’s up! The first appearance is in Detective Comics #407 (1971) by legend Neal Adams. Now that’s at least a reason to own the book, right?!

If you’re a fan of any Spidey comic these days you will realize that anything is possible with the way a storyline can twist and turn. There may be a similar path this week with Superior Spider-Man (2012) #23. Marvel promises to have the most “cringe-worthy moment is Spider-Man history” happen in this comic. What is worth a statement like that? Well you’ll have to buy the comic to find out. “….In history”, that’s very mighty of them to say isn’t it? Superior Spider-Man #23 is a definite pick-up this week.

Amazing X-Men (2013) #2 features a fan fav Dale Keown variant that’s sold out at Diamond. Possibly a nice CGC Signature Series opportunity here. It’s a $40 variant, so score a 9.8 or higher.                

Inhumanity (2013) #1 variant by Nick Bradshaw is sold out. Inhumans will be a hot commodity for a bit, so be on top of them. Check out last week’s InvestComics Hot Picks #296 for more on the Inhumans.

The popular on-line video game Hawken will get its own comic book this week from Archaia Studios Press; Hawken Melee (2013) #1. It’s almost sold out at the distributor, so be sure to check in on it.

Want to follow the story of three dogs surviving the extinction of the human race in Rover Red Charlie (2013) #1? Sounds a bit over the top right? With proven talent like writer Garth Ennis on this book, one cannot help but see what this is all about.

The latest installment of the Terminator hits this week; Terminator Salvation Final Battle (2013) #1 and the Pete Woods Variant is sold out.

Another zombie book finds its way to the new release shelf this week; Deadworld Restoration (2013) #1. The zombie genre is going to die soon (no pun intended) with too many storylines focusing on dead people that walk around. See last week’s Hot Picks #296 for more on the zombie genre.

What’s not dead on arrival is the new red hot Noir comic from Dynamite Entertainment. Noir (2013 Dynamite) #2 is sold out at the distributor. Look for second prints to follow shortly.

A new creative team will be taking over on Valiant’s Shadowman (2012 4th Series) #13. Be sure to check that out.

There is a “thing” Dynamite Entertainment is doing that is kind of perplexing (not really, they’re making extra cash with these “rare comics”), but maybe cool for the collector/speculator? It’s a question because there is no reasoning behind why they continue to do this to certain comics (other than the cashflow) and they are extremely limited, but we’ll point out a few of them this week. Red Sonja Unchained #4 Cover D High-End Mel Rubi Blood Red Ultra-Limited Cover. There are only 25 of these in existence. The “number” in existence is the running theme here, so check out what applies here for these comics; Dejah Thoris And The Green Men Of Mars #5 Cover G High-End Jay Anacleto Risque Color Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), Lords Of Mars #5 Cover D High-End Mel Rubi Risque Red Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), Black Bat (2013 Dynamite) #7 Cover D High-End Ardian Syaf Black & White Ultra-Limited Cover (50 Copies), and Shadow Green Hornet Dark Nights #2 Cover E High-End Alex Ross Sketch Art Ultra-Limited Cover (25 Copies). I do suppose that if you want to spend a $100 on any of these comics you can, but how exactly do you make your money back on these “investments”? (If you want to call it an investment). Graded CGC Signature Series? How would one sell something that isn’t really in much demand? Getting an Alex Ross sig series on the Shadow Green Hornet Dark Nights #2 is a good start.

Sticking with the Dynamite Comics here, be sure to check out Legends of Red Sonja (2013 Dynamite) #2 with the Frank Thorne exclusive cover. It’s a much cheaper route than the above mentioned. A $3.99 comic limited to comic subscribers at their local comic shops and an initial limited print run. All that for $3.99, not bad.

And finally, from Archie Comics Archie #650 Cover B Variant Fiona Staples World Tour Cover. This awesome variant comes from the red hot series artistry of Saga; Fiona Staples. A $3.99 easy, no brainer pick-up.

Invest wisely,

Jay Katz

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks

indexMarvel_Feature_1_(1971)Before heading right into this week’s InvestComics Hot Picks, there are a few comics that have been highlighted over the past week or so on InvestComics that need some love. Well not love so much, but some undivided attention. I’d like to point them out in this article so that speculators can plan accordingly during a slower week like this one.

News from director Zack Synder confirmed that Nightwing (aka Dick Grayson) will in fact appear in the new Superman sequel yet unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman. Great news for the comic book fans, but not so much on the collectors/speculators side. How so you may ask? Well, Dick Grayson becomes Nightwing in Tales of the Teen Titans #44 (1984) and the problem with this classic comic is the one thing no hobby enthusiasts likes to hear……overprint. This comic is so easily accessible it’s not even funny. While the overprint shouldn’t deter you to still own this comic (how do you not own it already??), do realize that the aftermarket will be inundated with the first appearance of Nightwing as it already is. Great comic, too bad there are too many copies are floating around. There is however a way to get a little more bang for your buck, but you should know how to do this already…..

InvestComics reported on Marvel teaming up with Netflix for their next venture onto the small screen. It involves Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage getting television shows and all leading up to a “Defenders” mini-series. How lucky can a comic book fan be these days?! A comic that must be in your collection and is a beauty is the first appearance of the Defenders team in Marvel Feature #1 (1971). There is nothing more to say……..buy this comic book!

With the recent success of the Arrow television show for the folks over at the CW station, they are once again looking at the DC catalog and have found iZombie. Zombies are hot for reasons that are obvious, but will it equate to the demise, the watering down of the genre? We’ll have izombiePreacher_1to wait and see. Until then, you already missed out by digging in the $1 bins at your local shop for the first DC/Vertigo iZombie #1 (2010) when InvestComics broke the news, so now the question is how much of a risk are you willing to take on this comic? You have two options here. Go for the first appearance of iZombie in House of Mystery Halloween Annual #1 (2009) which has sold for more than $50 on Ebay or the iZombie #1 comic that has sold for as high as $25. Big risk here because this series is no Walking Dead and the zombie genre will eventually settle down some. What if the television series craps out? Too many risk factors with this one here.

And possibly the best news to come out from television land came late last night on InvestComics. The once very hot Preacher series from DC/Vertigo will be considered for a pilot from AMC. A Preacher #1 (1995) CGC 9.8 sold yesterday on Ebay for $185. If you have this comic, I urge you to get it graded and sit on it. It’s going to be a big book. The comic series was a rousing success and there is no reason to think that the (possible) television series wouldn’t be either. Writer Garth Ennis brings his “A” game to everything he’s involved with. The highly successful Preacher series is evidence of this. IF the Preacher gets its own TV show, Preacher #1 will be a comic to own, big time.

In the “In case you missed it department”

In association with Ratchet City Comics, InvestComics will be celebrating the InvestComics Hot Picks #300 in a BIG way! The 300th InvestComics Hot Picks will be coming out the same week as Christmas, so on December 25th, Christmas day, we will be giving away a Star Wars #1 (2013 – Dark Horse) CGC Signature Series graded 9.6 Signed by writer Brian Wood!! The comic is pictured here and can be yours if you share the InvestComics web page everyplace you can to help us reach 3000 Likes on the Facebook page. FULL details right HERE!! Share!!

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 11/30/13

[scrollGallery id=320]

Believe it or not A Plus X (2012 Marvel Now) #14 will lead the way this week. It’s with good reason of course. The issue finds Max Bemis conducting writing duties. Why and who is Max? Well he’s a comic book fan and is also the front man in a rock band called Say Anything. He’s also the co-singer in a band called Two Tongues. I have to admit, I have absolutely no idea who the bands are or who Max is, but the kids tell me they know him and them! So why exactly are we talking about this comic again? Oh yeah, this is Max’s first published comic book work. The last time a rock dude crossed over, all hell broke loose for a little bit. Let me remind you……Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)? Umbrella Academy? Oh yes that! You remember now. So check out A + X #14 and see if Max pulls off a keeper here.

Harley Quinn begins her quest this week in her own regular series; starting with Harley Quinn (2013) #0. We all know by now that Harley first appeared in the Batman: Harley Quinn (1999) soft cover graphic novel. That classic Alex Ross cover is forever etched in our minds. So that comic is probably already filed away in your Bat box someplace. This week however, the Harley Quinn #0 Stephane Roux variant cover is sold out. Buying this comic will set you back $30, but how long can Harley really hold her own though? Maybe we’ll get an answer to that question sooner rather than later.

Battlestar Galactica always seems to be that red-headed step child doesn’t it? (No offense to red-heads! My sister is a red-head!). It’s always been that show that just can’t seem to get out of its own way. The first television series back in 1978 lasted two seasons, the second series lasted a whopping 4 seasons, and the original Marvel Comics series lasted 23 issues. No major motion picture, no talks of ever taking Battlestar to another level. Very odd no? Well maybe not. Maybe it’s just not a strong franchise. Yes, maybe it’s time to accept that Battlestar is not Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Stargate; Space 1999 maybe, but not any of the aforementioned. The intention here is not to bash Battlestar, but to find an understanding as to why so many failed attempts at a space series that has such a huge following. Dynamite hasn’t given up on BG though! This week Battlestar Galactica Starbuck (2013 Dynamite) #1 is on the cusp of a sell-out. That’s right fans, there is still a core audience that demands BG and Dynamite is here to provide it! Looks like a fun read!

Forever Evil Rogues Rebellion (2013) #2 variant is sold out. It’s only a $10 variant and it’ll probably stay put right there. There is nothing special about this comic at all except an exceptionally weak villain in Parasite wreaking havoc. A fun story, but nothing for the speculator here.

Although Superior Spider-Man (2012) Annual #1 might be sold out by the next new comic book day, it still has that “Annual” stigma attached to it. The Marvel solict  says “this one counts!” Even they realize the stigma attached. It’s far and few between that any comic book annuals make an impact on the hobby. They do exist, but not on a level of any expectations that collectors clamor for. In the Superior Spider-Man annual #1 though, we see the return of Blackout. The Blackout villain first appeared in Nova #19 (1978). Will the debut of Blackout be a draw? Most likely no, but the Nova character on the other hand………buy Nova. Yes, buy Nova.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #7 brings back an old foe. Lady Deathstrike from Daredevil #197 (1983). That’s a nice book to have. Not a be all end all, but an okay book.

If you have children then you know about Ben 10. You know that Ben 10 is on your television set when you are getting the kids ready for school. Yes I get the explanation every morning on which alien Ben has turned into and what he can do. Fun times! IDW wants my boy to read comics too, which is a great thing. Check out Ben 10 (2013 IDW) #1 this week for your kids. Get them reading! DC Comics were the first to jump into the Ben 10 craze and now IDW is doing the same. Good times!

A few weeks back InvestComics asked that you’d get a beat on the Afterlife with Archie #1 comic. Boy did we hit that one! This week the initial offering of Afterlife With Archie (2013) #2 will be a bit different. It seems as though the zombiefied Archie interest has died down a tad quickly, but do not let this deter you from getting the second issue. There is still might be “life” in this zombie Archie.

If there is THE number one comic to get this week, it has to be Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #1. Check out why our girl Zoey hasn’t killed anyone in about 72 days. She’s a radio DJ too. Not much to go on right? Well it’s an Image Comic, they release great stories AND it’s sold out already.

Cataclysm Ultimates (2013) #1 $20 variant is sold out. Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi Force War (2013) #1 will be one to check out and one more for the kids Scooby-Doo Team Up (2013 DC) #1!

Don’t forget, help us get to 3000 and you could win!!

Welcome to the InvestComics Hot Picks for new comic releases on 2-20-13

A couple of things to get to before we get started….

First order of business this week is the mentioning of the newest sponsor to the InvestComics family. Zap-Kapow! Zap-Kapow is an itunes comic book price guide app that gives you instant prices right in the palm of your hand whenever you need. It’s a fantastic app that should be on every collector’s phone. Zap-Kapow will also carry InvestComics on their website as a token of their commitment to InvestComics under the Comic News tab. Check out their website right HERE and also go HERE to get the app! Or go to the Zap-Kapow Icon on the top of this article and just click. InvestComics and Zap-Kapow! a perfect match!

Shaun Cobble and Shaun Sorenson are making waves with the new InvestComics Podcast Breaking the 4th Wall. Be sure to check out the show each and every week on Sunday’s. The boys have a lot of fun with it. Coming up shortly, InvestComics got a hold of Joe Harris to come on the show! That’s writer Joe Harris; Batman: Battle for the Cowl, The Fury of Firestorm, screenwriter on Darkness Falls, and much more. Look for that show coming up soon with Joe on. Fun to be had! And MORE guest announcements coming soon too. Look for them on the InvestComics Facebook page.

Now let’s get to this week’s chock full of number one issues. That’s 12 number one issues and one number zero. I can’t recall such a big week in which so many number ones have hit from different companies. Excluding the new 52 and Marvel NOW! of course.

HOT PICKS

[scrollGallery id=226]

Five of the number one issues come from IDW Publishing. IDW is simply killing it right now! In case you have been living under a rock, IDW has arrived. With the recent success of 2 titles, selling out, it’s not a surprise to see IDW go back to the well here. Star Wars #1 was a tremendous success, so IDW is giving fans Gi Joe (2013 IDW Volume 3) #1. Great move here because a restart of the Star Wars franchise is just what the collector ordered. G.I. Joe will be no different here. Look for fast sellouts and some quick jump in aftermarket pricing. G.I. Joe originally appeared in the Marvel/Hasbro launch back in 1982. The CGC market seems a bit inundated with this issue. A total of 1,296 graded copies to date. 277 which are sitting in the 9.8 range while 332 sit in the 9.6 range. This doesn’t really help your aftermarket cause. That said, pull out one of your 1982 Joe’s in your collection and pair it up with the new Joe from IDW that will sellout out, throw it up on Ebay and watch the bids come in. The sellout of Joe will probably occur with My Little Pony Micro Series (2013 IDW) #1 as well. With the successful launch of the My Little Pony comic, the new Micro series (a la TMNT) will focus on each pony. Granted this comic may not be for the average fanboy, but the aftermarket money should be! Be sure to put this comic in the middle of your stack and not on the top. Not because of embarrassment, because you don’t want to tip anyone off that you’ll be selling this on Ebay in a few days for $10 apiece. The other IDW number one issues not to be ignored this week are Vitriol The Hunter (2013 IDW) #1, Fever Ridge MacArthur Jungle War (2013 IDW) #1, and Kill Shakespeare Tide of Blood (2013 IDW) #1. IDW is rockin’ n rolling, be there or be square.

Marvel has some number one issues to offer up this week too. Alpha Big Time (2013 Marvel) #1 will be headed our way after a brief delay. Was there really a demand for this Alpha character to have his own book? Why is this happening exactly? Guess it never hurts to try something new right? Alpha first appeared a long long time ago in Amazing Spider-Man #692….um late last year. It’s probably still sitting on the new comic book shelf at your local shop. The main number one issue from the pair that are coming out will be Nova (2013 5th Series) #1. Why you ask? No really, you’re asking why? I’d spell it out for you with little dashes in-between the letters here but that will take too long. Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s it, that’s mostly what you need to know. With the debut of the Marvel Cosmo’s on the big screen, Nova would be a character to have in your collection. Nova #1 will be a quick sellout because after 5 tries of a series starring Nova, this time the interest will stay around a bit longer. Thanks in large part due to Marvel’s push of the Guardians movie. The new number one issue however is not the one collector’s should be clamoring after. The 1976 Nova #1, now this is the one you should have. You can get some VF- copies on Ebay for very affordable prices, but one should not settle for those. Look for some VF+/NM copies and grab them. Get those near mint comics graded asap. If you can pull off a 9.8, you’re probably in the money. 466 total graded copies and 70 at the 9.8 spot. Lots at the 9.6 slot. I’m telling you, get a 9.8 and hold on to this comic. It has tremendous upside.

We get introduced to a new villain this week from Marvel. Her name is Jet Black. Check out Captain America (2012 7th Series) #4 for her debut. The secret of Scorpio is revealed in Ultimates (2011 Marvel Ultimate Comics) #21. Scorpio’s first appearance is no secret to us though. Nick Fury’s sibling debuted in Nick Fury, AGENT of Shield #1 (1968) from icon Jim Steranko. Watch in the future for an originally signed Jim Steranko autograph for you to WIN from InvestComics’ video comic book review show FFFIC! Awesomeness indeed. Daredevil (2011 3rd Series) #23 begins a new storyline that claims to be a big one as well as a jumping on point. So jump! And Avengers (2012 5th Series) #6 will give us the origin of the Universe. See, Stan Lee is God.

DC comics Justice League of America (2013) #1 will debut with a variant cover, all of them with the same cover, but with a different flag for each state within the U.S. Very lame, sorry DC you dropped the ball again on this one. See the original tirade on this debacle on InvestComics Hot Picks #255, click HERE for that. In more lame news we get Justice League of Americas Vibe (2013) #1 this week. This comic falls in the same realm as Alpha #1 from Marvel. Is this comic necessary? Don’t look for much on this one, but Vibe’s first appearance is in Justice League of America Annual #2 (1984) if one feels so inclined to waste their time hunting for this. Batwoman (2011 2nd Series) #17 is wowing us with a new status quo. Really? Why a new status quo? Wasn’t this what the New 52 was supposed to do in the first place? Okay, let’s buy into it, see where it goes. DC guarantee’s that Action Comics (2011 2nd Series) #17 will be THE book to own in the new 52 universe. Why is this? An answer that only Grant Morrison knows and for us to find out. The DC comic to really keep an eye out on this week besides Action Comics #17 has to be Legion of Super-Heroes (2011 7th Series) #17. Paul Levitz teams back up with Keith Giffen on a Legion book. Cool stuff here fans. Back in the early 80’s Paul and Keith were tearing it up as fans were loving it. The tandem first teamed up on a Legion book back in 1982’s Legion of Super-Heroes #285. They worked together in a backup story called The Forgotten Future. Here’s a nice kicker too, Adam Kubert was the letterer on the story. How cool is that? Three legends on one story!

Todd McFarlane continues his magic and amazing marketing plan on paying homage to several comic book covers. This week he pays homage to the most famous cover of all time in Spawn (1992) #228. He does a tremendous job as always too. Thanks for the eye candy Todd! X-O Manowar (2012 3rd Series Valiant) #10 debuts the new X-O Manowar so check that out. With the recent announcement of the Sixth Gun pilot on NBC, it makes sense to grab a copy of the latest Sixth Gun installment Sixth Gun Sons of the Gun (2013 Oni) #1. We all know Sebastian Piccione from FFFIC will probably be very happy to read this comic!

Rounding out this week we have Dejah Thoris and Green Men of Mars (2013) #1 (take a look at some of the variant covers on this one! Parental Advisory!), Hellraiser Dark Watch (2013 Boom) #1, and Baltimore Widow and the Tank (2013 Dark Horse) #0.

That’s it for this week, watch for the new InvestComics’ newsletter coming soon with some very special BIG news!

Invest wisely.
