Top 5 Comic This Week

Amazing Spider-Man #800Writer Dan Slott’s last Spider-Man issue after a long run. This milestone issue promises to deliver with all kinds of dips and curves as only Slott can do. Possible death, a possible intro, possible new status quo, but one thing is guaranteed here is a big dramatic going out party from Dan Slott. Many pointless variants accompany this one. Pick your favorite, but read the inside, that’s where the true treasure is delivered.
The Last Siege #1New Image comic series from writer Laudry Q. Walker and artist Justin Greenwood. The solicit states this comic as being a spaghetti western cross with Game of Thrones. Wow, this should peek the curiosity of readers.
Stabbity Bunny #5This Scout Comic series continues to roll on. Selling out and commanding everyone’s attention.
Doomsday Clock #5Doomsday Clock is back! After a few delays (not good), DC hopes to get back on track with this once HIGHLY anticipated series. One way to grab the attention of readers again is to feature the Joker on the cover of the Watchmen driven story. That’ll turn some heads.
Pestilence Story Of Satan #1Writer Frank Tieri and artist Oleg Okunev revisit the massively successful AfterShock comic Pestilence with Pestilence Story Of Satan #1. This followup will trend just as well as the first series did, because writer Frank Tieri will deliver a story that’ll rival the series before. Period.

There are many new story lines coming up on new comic book Wednesday…….

The Flash comic hits its 700th issue all-time this Wednesday. This anniversary issue will be numbered The Flash #39. The Tony Daniel variant boasts this milestone right on the cover like the other recent DC milestone issues have. Issue 39 or 700, whichever you choose to say, starts “The Perfect Storm” story from creators Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico.
Will this be the week Rorschach pulls the mask off? Maybe, maybe not, but one thing is certain, Doomsday Clock #3 moves forward, revealing more to its eager fans, probably leaving even more questions along the way.
Teen Titans #16; A “one shot” fill-in issue written by legend Marv Wolfman.
“The Power of Zod” part one; Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #37. Writer Robert Venditti and artist Rafa Sandoval.
New mini-series; Raven: Daughter of Darkness #1. Legendary writer Marv Wolfman along with artist Pop Mhan.

The Marvel solicit for X-Men: Blue Annual #1 states they will provide the team-up that fans have been demanding; Venom and X-Men Blue. Is this fake news? Could be, but Venom sells comics no matter where or why or how he gets into a particular comic. And with Cullen Bunn writing and Edgar Salazar penciling, therein is another reason for a must-read book. That isn’t fake news.
Writer Chip Zdarsky chips (no pun intended) away at Reed Richards secret origin(?) in Marvel Two-In-One #2.
The Amazing Spider-Man #794; “Threat Level Red” part one. Creators; Dan Slott and Stuart Immonen.
Legion #1 from writer Peter Milligan and artist Wilfredo Torres.
Inhumans: Judgment Day #1; Al Ewing and Michael del Mundo.

InvestComics Indie Hot Picks; Indie comics do not always show up on Ebay right way. Please check back on a regular basis, some of the smaller print indie books usually list after new comic book release day or a few days after.
Last week writer Frank Tieri took over the writing duties for the Harley Quinn series. Frank killed it and this week Mr. Tieri brings the fight in Jughead: The Hunger #3 (Archie Comics). It’s Werewolf Jug vs Werewolf Hunter Betty. Writer Frank Tieri brings the goods as always. As does artist Tim Kennedy. That Adam Gorham cover is sure to make the “InvestComics Best Covers Of The Week” list too.
Writer Marjorie Liu Monstress comic is spot on. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check this series out, pick up the new Monstress #13 (Image Comics) this Wednesday. It’s a new story with more pages then usual.
Most comic readers and collectors have the knowledge of how the debut of a new sci-fi Image comic works. Everyone buys it and it sells out. This week’s debut offering is Dissonance #1. Creators; Singgih Nugroho and Sami Basri.
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny – Rose & Paige #1 (IDW); creators Delilah Dawson and Nicoletta Baldari.
Vinegar Teeth #1 (Dark Horse); creators Damon Gentry and Troy Nixey.

Starting this week off with a statement/rant…….an OPINION. No hate mail, no fanboy ridiculousness please. Not trying to instill values here. A simple opinion is all. In NO WAY do we not LOVE the indie companies, we’re just making a simple (opinion) point. Indie companies are amazing and do their thing each and every single week with quality. We will ALWAYS support the indie community as we have done since 2005. The opinion below is speaking about the big 2 and how much of a REAL stranglehold they truly have on the comic book industry. One may want to beat Walmart, Microsoft, Exxon, etc., but realistically it’s not happening anytime soon. That’s all we’re saying.
Many comic collectors have witnessed over the past few years with the ‘big 2’ are major changes within their character structure, their universes and origins. While many fanboys do not understand why this is happening, we do. We see the comic shops closing down on a regular basis, we see sales are down, we witness it all like everyone has. Then the ease from SOME comic shop owners to boast about how great they are doing in their business and how dumb other store owners are for not ‘having a pulse on things’ or ‘over ordering’ or whatever feeble excuse they can come up with to make themselves feel bigger and better, instead of picking up a person that is down. Here’s an obvious newsflash for those who boast and those who think they are the smartest business persons on the planet, comic books have become a very niche market. Kids do not dominate the sales (which is a very bad thing), heck most kids don’t even care that much about comics. It’s honesty, don’t get your panties in a bunch. Children are not going to ‘come around’ and buy comics. Some may, most won’t. Why you ask? Well, do you have children? There are simply too many distractions for them. Here are the biggest culprits; mobile phones (games/Youtube/chat), PC (games/Youtube/chat), Video games (Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo, etc). Those are the strongest assets driving kids AWAY from reading a comic and another other hobby at the moment. Newsflash again, times are a-changing (thanks Bob). Times HAVE changed. Comic books are becoming a cornered market for a dying niche group. Not saying comic are going away anytime soon, but the landscape for comic books are completely different than they were 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years ago. The fanboy or that boasting comic store owner does not understand the concept that it wasn’t because of ‘over ordering’ or ‘not having a pulse’ or anything to this nature that made that store close down, it’s simply a matter of the market correcting itself to have the right number of stores for the right amount of collectors. If anyone thinks that 18 year old card collector will continue to play with Pokeman cards for the duration of their lives as a lifer, you need to check yourself. It won’t happen. So the next question is, well, why not just teach the younger crowd to play cards or collect comics like WE do? Well, some of that may work, most of it won’t. Distractions, remember? Like it or not, technology will and is winning. Heck it already has won. Less stores, less sales, more discount sales happening all the time all around us. I know many are reading this in a fit of nerd fanboy rage and disagreeing, which is fine, but come up with a more plausible cause for ALL of the stores and the industry as a whole showing no significant gains what so ever. Oh wait, now the store owners (SOME) and fanboys will cry out ‘The Indies! The Indies are taking over!’. No they’re not, relax. Been hearing that since 1992. Yes they do have a market share, not enough to overthrow the big 2, so chill with that. The big 2 run the show, everyone still falls in third place and beyond. The indies release their Saga’s and Walking Dead’s while Superman and Spider-Man are and will always be, Superman and Spider-Man. The indie’s have more freedom to do certain stories that catch with fans (the dedicated indie crowd) and they do well, but this crowd will always want their Batman story too. Again, panties in a bunch, just an opinion here. The room is big enough for all companies to do their thing, but let’s not kid ourselves here, that indie writer, artist, colorist, inker, editor would jump at the first chance to work for Marvel or DC if offered the opportunity. Why do you think that is?? They are the big boys, they pay well and offer maximum exposure. That’s why.
With the landscape ever-changing as it has, DC and Marvel have tried desperately to change with it. Let’s remember, they are in the superhero business, not the Rat Queens, Henchgirl, Saga, Strain business. Although they are completely capable of doing comics like that, they don’t. Which they will eventually (complete confident speculation here). Yes that’s right, eventually Marvel and DC will eventually go off the beaten path of releasing non-superhero type comics MORE SO than they will superhero comics. They’re in business to make money and the superhero genre will take a back seat to more realistic, indie type stories. Yes they see the indie companies in the rearview, not worried so much they’ll take over as much as it is that they will eventually dominate the independent story making vibe. The superhero movies will run their course and this is driving some (most) of the interest for the big 2 right now. What will be next for them? Yes, the offbeat sci-fi story or those kids in a bank or that southern country story, you get the idea. They will once again run the table as they are doing right now. Why do you think the Power Pack movie news came out? (InvestComics did in fact predict this would happen too. Take a look at the excerpt we posted on our Facebook page more than two years ago regarding Power Pack #1.) Power Pack is the beginning of something different from Marvel (Disney). Yes they are superheroes, but they are kids as superheroes. A new era is creeping upon us, be ready for it folks. Hate all you want, but the big 2 have the most toys. Say how you will ‘protest’ once again because Peter and Mary aren’t married anymore or Captain America is hailing Hydra. Protest DC for their massive changes in-house regarding their universe for the umpteenth time, Marvel for doing the same……like this week….again. But you’ll be back, you’ll read and you’ll secretly like it. You can’t show your fanboy friend (who secretly likes the changes too) that you like the new Marvel Legacy idea, no way. Nope. Not happening. But it is happening because Marvel will take the lion share sales for the month(s) of September and October, so someone is buying this stuff and someone is reading it. Why not just fess up that you will in fact buy the new Marvel Legacy comics? It’s okay, you’re entitled to like them. It’s your money, your mind and your time.


Here is the bottom line. Marvel and DC make their changes because the profits are floundering. Everyone has the answers though! Everyone that isn’t a part of the board has the answers. The reasons for so many changes as in any business is to change things up and bring in new revenue. Did you know that one can tell if a late show on television is struggling just by looking at a desk placement? Moving the hosts desk is an actual sign of trying to change things up, bring a new vibe/feel to the show, get more revenue for its commercial spots. It’s absolutely true. So, is it the host fault? Maybe it’s Tom Cruise fault? A bit fell flat? Businesses try to figure out ways to spice things up, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s okay. Have YOU succeeded in everything you’ve ever tried? No of course not. The Marvel diversity fell flat after a strong showing, it’s failing now and now they are adjusting. It’s okay people, it’s okay. No one died, no one got injured, your family is safe. And guess what, this is the best part, if you don’t like it, don’t read it. Now is the time to give Marvel Legacy a shot. This may work, it may not. Who knows? Either way, it’s still a product we all love, comic books. There are still plenty of stories to be told, whether you like them or not, no one is forcing you to read them. Marvel is picking up the pieces. They tried something and now it’s time to try something again. A dose of reality, Marvel and DC do not care about your opinion. They will do what THEY want to do. So, knowing this, why the uproar each and every time they want to do a makeover? Ford motors, Microsoft, Boeing, Walmart, AT&T, FedEx, etc. do not give one iota of what your opinion is when they make changes, recognize your place and act accordingly, stop embarrassing yourself and the comic community. Embrace change for what it is. Stressing over something you have no control over or does not affect the health of you or your family should never matter. It’s all entertainment, remember this.
Marvel Redux (Legacy) hits this week. Everything you knew about Marvel from yesteryear will fall back into place….mostly, with some new additions and twist. Except Peter and MJ? That’s an odd thing for Marvel to say about their total recall line, but do not fret, it will happen. A big grandiose 137 variant cover event will happen when this baby arrives, wait for it. Marvel likes money and attention, it will happen. And speaking of a lot of variant covers, Marvel Legacy #1 will have just that, lots and lots of variant covers. There are a couple of them that’ll appear in our weekly ‘Best Comic Covers’ post coming out soon. So, what to make of this Marvel Legacy? Nothing really. Nothing in the sense we go back to the drawing board once again and rid these new flagship characters as focal points. Jane is cool, as is Sam, Kamala, Miles, etc., but basics are better. Those characters do have a place in the Marvel U, just not front and center. Peter, Steve, Carol, Odinson, etc. belong front and center. Again, opinion here, save your hate mail and messages unless you can speak from an adult vantage point and not a fanboy. Definitely going to give Marvel Legacy #1 a shot here and so should you. You will, you know you will.

Buy/Bid – FOOM #1 1973

Buy/Bid – FOOM #2

Buy/Bid – FOOM #1 2017

As Marvel Legacy debuts this Wednesday, they’ll bridge the gaps for Spidey and Cap in the same week. Generations Captain Americas #1 and Generations Miles Morales & Peter Parker Spider-Man #1.
Fan favorite character Spider-Gwen will see a transformation of some sort in Spider-Gwen #24. Be it a psychical, exterior, status quo or a mental change, not too sure. Keep an eye out on this one because any big (acceptable) change can mean a book in demand (ComicsInDemand.com). If the collector(s) give it a ‘meh’, no dice for the speculator. The reader gets rewarded either way though.
Many fans will try to make something of all the comic covers behind Deadpool on Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe Again #5 cover. Some sites will make a whole meaningless write up about it. Although there are some key books on that wall, which is not news, the best part of this Dave Johnson cover must be Cable’s head, which is also not news, but funny. He had to do this on purpose, right? Last issue of this great mini. Cullen Bunn and Dalibor Talijic.
And speaking of covers, Rob Liefeld provides the Venomized cover for Cable #5. Looks fantastic Rob.
Ben Reilly The Scarlet Spider #8 may have an introduction.

Buy/Bid – Action Comics #988

Back in 1973, a free Marvel magazine named FOOM provided fans with all sorts of goodies in it. Puzzles, pin-ups, interviews, photos, previews, etc. Some collectors even try to pass FOOM #2 as the true first appearance of Wolverine because it predates Hulk #181. While it’s a pricey get, it never materialized as the ‘go to’ for the first appearance. However, this week Marvel brings back the free FOOM #1 magazine as it coincides with the whole Marvel Legacy deal. “Speculators” will keep an eye out on this freebie as it may contain that panel/headshot/leg shot/hand shot/shadow of a hot new character that debuts in a regular comic someplace down the line. Silly speculators and other silly speculative websites these days will jump all over this one and make sure this one counts as the Wolverine ‘first’ does not. Just to have something to write about and feel important. It will become this; first appearance ever and first appearance in a comic book. Yawn.

Buy/Bid – Wonder Woman #31

Buy/Bid – Justice League #50

Buy/Bid – Murder Machine #1

Buy/Bid – Flash #31

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wonder Woman #31 has the potential of being a hot commodity on Wednesday. This is the second appearance of Jason. Jason is Wonder Woman’s twin brother. The new WW issue begins the search for her brother Jason; “Children of the Gods” part one. He’s probably all grown up already and a total bad as*. That’s just speculation of course. He first appeared as a baby (birth) in Justice League #50 (2016).
DC claims that Detective Comics #965 will be the biggest story in the Rebirth Era. This is their semi-answer to Marvel Legacy coming this Wednesday. Part one ‘A Lonely Place Of Living’. The story will focus on Tim Drake. Buckle in!
Writer Frank Tieri continues his Metal tie-in stories this week with Batman The Murder Machine #1. Frank is really turning it up on these tie-in books. Check them out.
Okay so what is up with Nightwing on the Dan Mora Batgirl #15 cover? That left hand. Get a room guys…
DC Comics changed the Lenticular Cover for Action Comics #988. (Spoiler alert) It depicts the shadow image from the Watchmen comic as they meet their demise with the explosion. This comic also continues the big reveal from last issue. Mr. Oz is ______?! But how?!
The ‘Bloodwork’ storyline continues in The Flash #31 this week. The second appearance of Bloodwork. Joshua Williamson & Neil Googe.

Welcome to the InvestComics Comic Hot Picks for comic releases on 8-15-12

One comic you should definitely look out for on the new comic shelf this week is Michael Avon Oeming’s The Victories #1. An absolute “gimme” here as an InvestComics Hot Pick. Will this comic sell out quickly? Yes. See a second print? Yes. Does the main character look remarkably like a character that has been around for quite some time? Yes, but we will get past that when reading this book….right?

Marvel Comics makes a couple of promises this week (as they do often, but who’s paying attention?).  Amazing Spider-Man #691 is a MUST GET issue according to Marvel because it’s leading up to that number 700 issue. Marvel says that you will regret not buying this comic now because it’s going to mean so much later. Okay so you reeled us in, thanks Marvel! More Marvel Comics promises lie within the pages of Avengers #29. The promise here is to witness a “tie-in experience like you have never seen before!” What does this mean exactly?? Oh well, guess we’ll have to pick this up and see.

Marvel Comics are in pairs this week. Two promises, now two first appearances. Captain Marvel #2 introduces The Banshee Squadron while Daredevil #17 introduces the villain Coyote. You think Coyote is that old Epic character McFarlane drew? If you remember that, you’re showing your age. Wait a sec….

DC Comics Presents #12 introduces Kid Flash. The Kid’s first appearance is in Flash #110. DC’s Before Watchmen continues with Rorschach #1. And of course Rorschach’s first appearance is in the Watchmen #1. 

IDW goes back to the vaults and collects Dave Gibbons’ old Doctor Who comics in Doctor Who Dave Gibbons Treasury Edition #1. This is very neat for Dave Gibbons fans and Doctor Who enthusiasts alike. If you’d like to search for those original comic books from the legend, check out his first Doctor Who book from 1979’s Doctor Who Magazine #1.

IDW continues with their vault visits with Classic Popeye #1, collecting the original Popeye comics from 1948. It’s funny how IDW didn’t change a thing regarding the original number one cover to the reprinted edition, all but changing 2 things. But one fact that is not going to change is that the 1948 Popeye #1 is around $600.

Number one independent comics are aplenty this week. Homecoming #1 from Aspen Comics. A creation from the late Michael Turner. The Adventures of a Comic Con Girl from Antarctic Comics looks like a fun read. Dan The Unharmable #1 is from the awesome creative mind of award winning David Lampham. And finally from Arcana, check out Curse of the Cortes Stone #1.

A quick little going away note here…..

Bob Heske, screenwriter, author and of Heske Horror AND major contributor to InvestComics has a movie project in the works. It’s called Blessid. The IndieGogo project needs some funding and has some major talent attached to the project. Reader’s can find a fantastic interview right HERE with the Director Rob Fitz. Check out more information on this fabulous project with the full cast right HERE. Contribute as little as $10 to get this project off the ground!

That’s it for this week fans! Be sure to scroll through the InvestComics Covers of the week below! What covers do you think should have made the cut? Let’s hear it!

Welcome to InvestComics Hot Picks for 6-13-12.

As comic book fans we all knew this was going to happen, although it happened in a quicker manner than initially thought. Its Amazing Fantasy #15 meets Ultimate Fallout #4. Peter Parker will meet Miles Morales this week in Spider-Men #1. What will this bring exactly? Probably some cool reading, but nothing as far as long term collecting goes. You’d have to pick up the variants if you’re looking for a collectors value at all to this meeting of the minds between Parker and Morales. There are only 2 variants (only 2? Thank goodness!) to this “historic event”. One featuring the talented Humberto Ramos while the other is a comic shop dealer variant done by another great talent Mark Bagley. Where will Miles fit into the Marvel Universe is the question that we all ask…..

As for the Spidey story, we all know it right? Way back when Stan Lee introduced us all to Spider-Man back in 1962, Stan said he was inspired by the idea of Spider-Man from the Pulp magazine The Spider. The Spider #1 from 1933 in G/VG condition on EBay has a Buy it Now price of $699. There are some comics worth having in your collection, and then there is the “inspiration” comic that began the wheels turning for one of the most iconic Superheroes of all time. Yes a nice addition indeed.

Switching gears dramatically here, there are two first appearances you can hunt for this week along with your new stack. DC’s Before Watchmen have started their arrivals upon your local shop. This week we get Silk Spectre #1. If you are one of the few that do not own the original Watchmen series, simply put you should. Forget the trade here, get the original set. Within the series, issue #2 features the first appearance of Silk Spectre.

The second of our two searches comes off of the new IDW comic this week Kiss #1 Dressed to Kill. Anyone rememberwhen that Dressed to Kill album came out? Yes showing the age here, time goes quickly! Anyway, as many of you know or may not know Kiss’ first appearance came within the pages of Howard the Duck #12. The 9.8 CGC copy on EBay right now has a Buy it Now price of $89.95. Or you can buy a “Near Mint” copy in the $40 to $50 range from some Top Rated sellers. Although the first appearance of Kiss is a decent comic to own, it’s the Marvel Comics Super Special Kiss #1 that draws blood here…..literally. For those of you who don’t already know about this comic here’s the short story. Before the comic went to print, each member in the band Paul, Gene, Peter and Ace drew blood and proceeded to mix it in within the ink. Either really gross to some or very cool. The coolness here has to be the price the CGC 9.8 is fetching on EBay. $1250.00! That’s some rich….*ahem* blood.

Batgirl #10 brings us an introduction of a new villain, while Uncanny X-Force #26 greets us to the Omegas and Image Comics Planetoid #1 looks like an interesting book to not pass up.

This was one of the lighter weeks we have had here on InvestComics Hot Picks in a while, but never fret there are always busy ones lurking ahead!

In the meantime, scroll through some beautiful artistry in the best of the best below – Covers of the Week.

See you next week. Invest wisely.

InvestComics Comic Hot Pick 2-27-08

This comic will probably be a movie someday…. 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

Kick Ass # 1 – Marvel

Marvel this week will be releasing its first highly anticipated book of the year. The promotion for the comic calls the comic book fan idiots if they don’t buy this book. Marvel has a lot of nerve saying this with a title of “Kick Ass”. This is one of the lamest comic book titles to come out in quite some time. (Yes we know Marvel was joking-calm down everyone, but we’re not!)

With a star studded team of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., this promises to be a great read as well as great eye candy. Remember though, great teams don’t always add up to a great comic. Although the previews are proving that Kick Ass does not seem to be breaking new ground on storytelling, it does seem very interesting. Marvel is cranking up the old hype machine on full tilt. 

So Is this comic a Frank Miller Dark Knight game changer? No way. Is this DC’s Watchmen? Nope. Is Hollywood going to put their bid on this series to make for a possible film? Now this is a possibility.

The Boys just got picked up by Hollywood last week. Yes Hollywood has pimped itself out and is grabbing anything that has readers buzzing. If enough buzz about this comic gets out with these top two creators attached to it, Hollywood is going to be a knockin’. The only investment side potential with this comic is the potential movie that might come of it. Otherwise, read it, enjoy it, put it  away……you never know.

 

Invest wisely.

Watchmen

If you do not own this already, you’re not a comic collector…
Orginally published in InvestComics #1  June 2007 

Current price $8.00

 

Watchmen #1

If you’re a comic book enthusiasts, there really is no need to explain just how important this mini series is to the comic book world. Just in case you have been living in a bubble for the last 21 years, this mini series came out the same year Frank Miller’s Dark Knight came out. It’s safe to say DC was setting precedents for the industry. The series is written by Alan Moore and penciled by Dave Gibbons. Here is the deal, Watchmen is in production to be a major motion picture by 2008. The movie is set to be written by Zack Synder. Whose Zack you ask? He directed a movie called 300. So if by some reason unbeknownst to any comic collector you don’t already own this book, get it! Even if this never returns a profit for you, the story alone is worth the cash you’ll spend for this series. Put back the 4th printing of Captain America #25 and buy something you will cherish.

 

Both Watchmen and Dark Knight were game changers.

 

Invest wisely.
