Gamora #1 – The first solo series from the female muscle of the Guardians of The Galaxy group. Sales are off to a great start. Some variants are already sold out.

Captain America Sam Wilson #16 – Misty Knight picks up the shield. It looks like a good fit. More of this in 2017? Maybe…..

Deadpool And Mercs For Money #6 – The Rainbow Deadpool Squad make their return. Another prediction, we’ll probably see more of them in 2017.

Justice League Suicide Squad #1 – Two DC Comics teams go head to head. Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Mighty Captain Marvel #0 – Another Captain Marvel relaunch. This series (how many issues??) will be written by novelist Margaret Stohl. This will be Margaret’s first written comic book series. We’re in.

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: We have three comics this week under $100. Shazam #1 (1973) 8.5. First appearance of Marvel Family in DC Universe. Origin of Captain Marvel retold. Press this and possibly get a 9.0? At $79.99 buy it now, that’s a buy….it….now.  Not too familiar with these Michael Turner Aspen DC Comics, but this one looks nice for only $59.99. Harley Quinn #1 (2016) 9.8 Michael Turner sketch variant.  Amazing Adventures #1 (1970) 5.0. First solo Black Widow story. Cover by Jack Kirby and John Romita. Art from Jack Kirby and John Buscema. All this for only $84.

Gamora gets her first solo series ever. Gamora #1 will have writer Nicole Perlman and artist Marco Checchetto see Gamora off to begin her solo career. She has a strong presence on screen, but will that equate to a strong showing in the funny books? We’ll have to watch and see on this one. We have confidence that Nicole and Marco will keep things interesting. Strange Tales #180 (1975) is the first Gamora appearance. The cosmic master, Jim Starlin is all over this one too. Story, art, inks, colors and cover art. An obvious classic. A Gamora #1 variant pays homage to New Mutants #1 (1983). Cover by Bobby Rubio. There is also the sexy (what a surprise) J. Scott Campbell variant. That one seems to be in much demand (what a surprise). Oh and Star-Lord #1 comes out too. There is a variant that pays homage to Uncanny X-Men #138 (1980). The variant is done by Chris Stevens.

Over many years, there have been several characters to have taken the Captain America mantle. So many in fact, it’s too many to list here. There have been a few women to run with the shield, but most or all the time within the alternate Marvel universe. It’s no secret that Disney has set out on a mission regarding their comics as far as gender and their demo reach is concerned. The female hero/villain has a very large presence in today’s comic market and now Marvel branches out once again (possibly) to switch the gender tables on one of their characters. It seems as though Misty Knight is borrowing that Captain America mantle from Sam Wilson in Captain America Sam Wilson #16. And judging from the Paul Renaud cover, she is not playing around. Will this become a ‘thing’? Will she keep the shield? Star in her own title with a shield of her own? Misty Knight first appeared in Marvel Team-Up #1 (1972). Her First full appearance was in Marvel Premiere #21 (1975).

Number zero comic issues are silly. There, we said it. They make no sense, but sometimes comic companies insist on doing the silliness of a zero issue before their number one issue. Such is the case for Marvel’s Mighty Captain Marvel #0. We’re not saying any zero issues aren’t good or this particular zero issue won’t be good, just saying there is nothing that cannot be done in a number one issue that can be done in a zero issue. Count up from number one and that’s it. Have a prologue issue with no number if need be instead……why zero? Anyway, let’s get back to the new Mighty Captain Marvel #0. Zero……….okay okay we need to get back on track, we apologize. Totally having fun here, we really don’t care that much. At all actually. The new Captain Marvel comic will be the first ever regular comic series from writer Margaret Stohl. She made her comic book debut introducing us to Red Widow in Mockingbird Shield 50th Anniversary #1. So check out the new series from Margaret Stohl and artist Ramon Rosanas.

Deadpool And Mercs For Money #6 will feature the return of Rainbow Deadpool Squad. The Rainbow Deadpool Squad first appeared earlier this year in Deadpool #4. Just like we predicted spinoff series’ for the original members of the Mercs For Money team, we’ll say to watch out for a Deadpool Rainbow Squad team book somewhere down the line eventually.
Riri Williams continues her quest, read her story in Invincible Iron Man #2.

DC is calling Justice League Suicide Squad #1 the start of the first major storyline within the realm of Rebirth. Brought to us by writer Joshua Williamson and artist Jason Fabok.

We don’t care, give us a well written story with action and we’re on board.

InvestComics Comic Hot Picks 5-5-10

hp5510fp.gifDC comes with firepower this week, releasing 2 big number one issues. And Thanos has arrived! Plus the week that was….

 

 

 

Hot Picks 5-5-10

Well it’s no secret how much of a fan InvestComics is to the character Thanos. This week Thanos will be starting his dominance of the Cosmo’s once again in The thethanosimperativeignition1.gifsupermanwarof_supermen1.gifbrightestday1.gifThanos Imperative Ignition #1. This comic will sell out quickly, so if you want a crispy first printing pick it up in the first couple of days after its release. Thanos will be a force in the Cosmo’s again, be there for his return.

DC has a couple of very soon to be hot books heading our way this week, Brightest Day #1 which is an absolute no-brainer to pick up, as is The War of Supermen #1. The artist on the WOS #1 book, Jamal Igle appears in a 10 For The Pros spot that just went up a couple of days ago. You can check it out by clicking here. Much like the Thanos comic this week, both of these DC books will see second printings very soon. An exceptional cover homage from our good friend shadowhawk1.gifshawdowhawk1_1992.gifyoungblood2.gifGeorges Jeanty comes out this week. Check out the Buffy the Vampire Slayer #35 that pays tribute to The Uncanny X-Men #138 done by legends John Byrne and Terry Austin. Awesome job Georges!

Shawdowhawk returns this week in a new self titled number one issue. Way back in 1992 Jim Valentino drew the first appearance of his creator owned character in Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood #2. You could find this comic at your local comic shop in the 25 cent boxes. They made a bazillion of these so it certainly will not be hard to find. Another number issue that has a character’s first appearance that could be bought for cheap (cover price on this one) first appeared in the Invincible Iron Man #10. Rescue is her name, and that Iron Man cover is a beauty, brought to you by Salvador Larroca. So when you’re checking out the Rescue #1 comic this week, go to the back issues and grab the Iron man #10 for cover price the_invincibleironman10_salvadorlarroca.gifrescue1.gifwolverine900.gifas well. With a comic like Rescue #1 coming out, why can’t Marvel make a deal already and get new Rom #1 out??

Marvel’s Wolverine #900 comes out this week with a host of creators jumping on board to take a crack at a Wolverine story. Guess Deadpool is getting too much airtime and Logan is getting a bit jealous. Collaboration comics usually don’t fair too well in the aftermarket unless it has a first work or something that attracts attention to it. Your call on this one, it’s sure to have some great stories in it though. Dan Parent recently stopped by 10 For The Pros. Now he has his anniversary veronica200.gifcomic coming out; Veronica #200.

Well it’s Free Comic Book Day! Awesome, free comics for everyone!! There are a few free comics you need to try and get before they disappear. The BEST free comic of all has to be G.I. Joe #155½. Larry Hama continues his Joe story from the original Marvel series from 15 years ago!! That’s a keeper! Also pick up the War of Supermen #0 and Images newest upcoming event Artifacts comes out with a #0 comic.
