Superman will be making his return to the big screen this Friday June 14th. This movie will be either the beginning or the end of the DC Universe on the big screen as we know it. It must do well in order for Warner Bros. to justify bringing aboard the rest of the DCU. If the movie fails to meet expectations, fans of DC will have a long wait before they ever see another character from their library take to the screen. If it exceeds expectations (which I think it will), we all get to enjoy the start of something bigger. The Justice League of America? Flash? Wonder Woman? Nightwing? Who knows what could come next, but something WILL be next because the Man of Steel will single handily bring the DC Universe to the next level. So why didn’t the recent Nolan Batman movies do this with the successful run it’s had you ask? Simple answer, because Superman is Superman and not Batman that’s why.

 

….And now the Superman Checklist.

The following list is a quick guide as there are MANY Superman comics that will be left off this list (not by choice, but a simple miss). Please do not hesitate in writing below some of the books that you may deem important.

The InvestComics Superman Checklist Special will list only comics from the Action Comics/Superman/Adventure Comics series’ as well as some team-up books. Enjoy, remember to have fun and as always, invest wisely.

Superman vol.2 #73: Listed as another first Doomsday cameo.

Superman vol.2 #75: The Death of Superman. Boy oh boy was this comic a big deal back in 1992. The Death issue here isn’t worth as much as it was back in 92 (a’la Death of Captain America), but still a nice comic to have (in the plastic bag). A significant price difference occurs with the Death of Superman Platinum edition. The Platinum edition fetches about $40 more.

Superman vol.2 #204 (penciled cover): The previous issue #203 is Jim Lee’s first Superman pencils on his Superman run, but it’s this iconic cover that is very gets all the attention.

We’re off to the races this week. Well not really, but Superboy and kid Flash are! More on that in a bit. Last week InvestComics Comic Hot Picks mentioned that Martin Pierro of Comic Times was going to appear on InvestComics TV. Instead Letter extraordinaire Jaymes Reed appeared! So THIS Wednesday, guess who is appearing on InvestComics TV? That’s right Martin Pierro of Cosmic Times! Great company, great comics, and a great guy.

DC has a race going on this week. It’s Superboy vs. Kid Flash. It’s the first time they will ever race. And from the looks of the previews pages on InvestComics, right here, it looks like it’s going to be a blast. DC first had a famous race back in 1967 in Superman #199. This classic issue is the 2 fastest heroes in the DC Universe going head to head in the very first race ever, Superman vs. Flash. The famous issue and race will cost you about $600, a beauty of an issue to have within your collection.

Marvel’s hostile takeover of CrossGen Entertainment finally comes to light this week. No it wasn’t a hostile takeover, just sounded cool. Marvel bought the rights to all of CrossGen’s property. This week Marvel tackles their first CrossGen character, Sigil. All of the CrossGen characters first appeared in CrossGen Genesis. That nifty little comic is only $8, while Sigil’s first solo comic, which first arrived as a customer review copy as Sigil #1 goes for $5. With Marvel at the helm, and with these strong character backgrounds that CrossGen put together, IF Marvel maintains the strength of this line, Sky’s the limit here. Look for an expansion into cartoons and even movies. So for $8 you receive full ownership of the first appearance of every CrossGen character. Not a bad buy at all.

More secrets abound in New Avengers #10. Don’t miss it! And everyone’s favorite black costume is back. Venom #1 comes out this Wednesday. Does he deserve his own book? We’ll see…..

That’s it for this week…..And this Wednesday, Martin Pierro of Cosmic Times on InvestComics TV. Check it out!

Flash gets the top billing this week and speeds back to the year 1967?? Click ahead to see why you should be time traveling to the year that brought us the birth of Pamela Anderson, Super Bowl 1, Sgt Pepper’ Lonely Heart and the greatest comic book race of all time…

flashrebirth3.gif superman199.gif

Flash Rebirth #3  Way back in 1967 the greatest comic book race took place. Legend Curt Swan did the penciling while Legend Carmine Infantino gave us that classic cover to Superman #199. This week,
superstars Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver bring the timeless classic to the modern era. The race back in 67 was a fun comic and the way Geoff and Ethan are bringing it these days, this too will be fun. The Rebirth series is obliviously a Red Hot one and this particular comic will spark the interest of the original
race. Superman #199 clocks in at about $500. An awesome investment for a
classic comic.

warofkingsskaar.gif

War of Kings: Savage World of Skaar  Another week, another Skaar mention. Yes InvestComics is drinking the Skaar Kool-Aid again. What more is there to be
said about Skaar that hasn’t been already been said?   Until Skaar meets up with his daddy and settles some emo issues he’s dealing with, IC will keep the buy sign up on World War Hulk #5. Although something tells us that Skaar will have issues for a long time. Good because there is nothing better than a 12 foot child with emotional problems and a big sword!

Batman #587
Well it looks like there is a new Batman in town and his name is Dick,
Dick Greyson that is. After all of the ridiculous fanfare DC ‘tried’ putting
up, the death of Batman, the battle for the Cowl, it came down to the exact
ending (for now -Bruce will be the other ending) that every fan expected. Dick has become the new Batman, so when is that Bruce coming back? Unlike Marvel, DC will bring back Bruce sooner than Steve. Is Steve coming back in Issue #600? Probably not, but that’s another story for another week. So here is the latest rundown on this debacle that DC has created for one of their flagship characters. Dick is Batman, Damian is Robin, Tim is Red Robin and oh yes, almost almost forgot ….Jason Todd fell to his death. Um, yea and Batman died too right? DC……..A Death In The Family (Robin) yes, Infinite Crisis (Supergirl) yes, these worked! ‘Death’ is NOT, NOT a selling point anymore! Is it possible to make a death in a comic book of a major character (Batman) completely irrelevant? Yes apparently it could be done, thanks DC. Someone needs to stop watching the Novelas (definition in a moment for you non-Spanish speaking fans) and get back on track here. Only real saving grace on this issue will be Judd Winick jumping on board. Now Judd, make everything better and stay away from those goofy Spanish
soap operas.

betaraybigod1.gif thor_337.jpgBeta Ray Bill: Godhunter #1  Not sure if anyone has noticed this, but has Beta Ray been around a lot these days? Or maybe it seems that way, doesn’t it? Well with the rumblings of Thor getting a cast for the movie together, it
really wouldn’t be a surprise to hear of Beta being a part of it. Maybe this is why he’s getting so much pencil time? Well a few weeks ago, IC recommended getting the first appearance of Ray in Thor #337. With another comic book coming out bearing his name on it, it probably would be wise to get the Walt Simonson classic run at deep discounted prices right now. Issue #337 comes in at only $10. Great Buy here fans.

Here are some other interesting Comics to look at this Wednesday…….
