InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 5/7/14

[scrollGallery id=349]

We hope that your Free Comic book day was a good one. If you were lucky enough to grab a few free comics, good for you! One free comic in particular may turn out to be a nice keeper. The free comic named Epic (ComixTribe) has massive potential written all over it. This Wednesday; Epic (2013 ComixTribe) #1 arrives on the shelf with a sold out sign on it. If you were lucky enough to snag a copy, hold onto it because there might be some movement in the aftermarket on Epic’s first appearance.

The new Maxx comic this week; Maxx Maxximized (2013 IDW) #7 has an appearance from Pitt. Pitt was an awesome Dale Keown character back in the 90’s. Good to see he’s back! Look for the overprinted Youngblood #4 for Pitt’s first appearance.

A couple of sold out/almost sold out comics from Image Comics arrive this week. Check out Nailbiter (2014 Image) #1 (sold out) and Madame Frankenstein (2014 Image) #1 (on the verge of the sold out status). Two unique books….limited quantity. Good luck.

Garfield actually makes the Hot Picks this week. This may be a first! Well America’s favorite cat makes it this week with good reason. Garfield (2012 Boom) #25 will be an anniversary issue, which will also be accompanied by a George Perez variant.  So if you have $25 to splurge, this would be a nice comic to get signed and graded. Don’t wait for an immediate return on your monies. This comic would be one to sit on for years to come. It’s a long term investment.

Iron Fist continues his origin this week in Iron Fist Living Weapon (2014) #2. I said this once on here, and I’ll say it for the hundredth time now too. Buy Marvel Premiere #15 (1974). This is Iron Fists’ first appearance and should have be archived in your collection  from years ago. Iron Fist is a good television episode (Netflix) or movie away from becoming huge. You’ve been warned….

Apparently the New 52 is threating to “change things!” The question we all collectively ask is “so soon??” Batwing (2011-) #31 will possible involve a NEW Batwing, while New 52 Futures End (2014) #1 sets everything in the not too distant future amok. What’s wrong with the present DC?

Batman Superman (2013 DC) #10 looks like a good standalone issue read. Superman has to shrink and go inside Bruce’s body to fight a germ or something. While in there, he discovers something unfathomable. Could it be that dreaded “C” word? Who knows, but must read comics here!

A few years ago I got my first ever story published by BlueWater Comics. House of Horrors #1 was the title, and the artist on my story was Stefano Cardoselli. Check out the original cover (in the scroll gallery) to Vincent Price Presents #36 (which later became House of Horrors #1 instead) by Stefano. Stefano brings it in everything he does. That’s why Necromantical (2014 Ardden) #1 is just about sold out. Stefano gives his best and it shows.

Chaos (2014 Dynamite) #1 is just about sold out at the distributor. Along with Burn the Orphanage Reign of Terror (2014) #1 and Woods (2014 Boom) #1.

After all of the Amazing Spider-Man #1 hoopla from last week we get Amazing Spider-Man (2014 3rd Series) #1.1. Now is this really that necessary? 1.1? Really? The same goes for Cyclops (2014 2nd Series) #1. Who is asking for a solo Cyclops book?? Once more here, Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man (2014) #1………okay……..

Invest wisely.

Carpe Diem

Welcome to the InvestComics Comic Hot Picks for comic releases on 7-25-12

Back to regular business after a 3 part Dark Knight Hot Picks special last week. Let’s get right into this week!

Michael Avon Oeming and Brain Michael Bendis first released their much beloved Image Comics Powers series in 2000. Now the powers that be (pun intended) have taken this series to its first new spinoff number one issue. Powers FBI #1. Not so much a spinoff actually, but a new title name. Either way this is quite awesome for all comic book fans and they should eat this up. Expect sellouts quickly. The Powers #1 from 2000 will cost only $12 to buy, not a bad deal at all.

Desconsecrator is causing all sorts of havoc within the pages of The Mighty Thor #17 this week. Catch this characters first appearance two issues prior in The Mighty Thor #15.

….and wrapping up Marvel here, the newest X-book X-Treme X-Men #1 debuts.

DC’s Flash #11 re-introduces fans to Heat Wave. Heat Wave first appeared within the pages of the Flash #140 back in 1963. The legend Carmine Infantino graces us with the cover to this beauty. A cool $300 gets you this first appearance.

Fans find out secret origin of Pozhar in The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #11 this week. Check out Pozhar’s debut in The Fury of Firestorm #62 from 1987. The wonderful talents of John Ostrander (writer) and the late great Dick Giordano (inks) are on this comic for only $3.   

Kid Eternity returns this week. National Comics Eternity #1 (what’s with the title?). If you’re in the market for a first “slow trending” first appearance comic, this would be the one. Hit Comics #25 from 1942 will hit your wallet for only $2000. A first appearance of a character from 1942 for only $2000? It’s not like we all don’t know who Kid Eternity is, apparently not much of a demand for the Kid. And indecently, the first post crisis Kid Eternity appears in Kid Eternity #1 from 1991. You could probably find this comic (along with The Fury of Firestorm #62) hiding out in some one dollar boxes at your local comic shop.

Batman Incorporated #3 debuts the New 52 Matches Malone. Find his first appearance in a backup story from Denny O’Neil in Batman #242 (1972). A $100 comic and a nice buy here.   

…And staying on the backup story theme here, All-Star Western #11 introduces Terrence 13 in a backup.

Superman #11 introduces fans to some sort of new alien that will be a thorn in his side for a few issues.

The Savage Hawkman #11 Introduces a villain named St. Bastion.

Image Comics’ Superman; Supreme is making a little bit of noise with his comeback. Supreme #66 comes out this week and his first appearance is in the overprinted 25 cent bins Youngblood #3 (1992). Rob Liefeld all over this comic…

Also from Image this week a new number one issue to check out; Debris #1.

Looks like Boom! Studios will try out a “Spider-Man” “Invincible” type of genre with Michael Midas Champion #1. Check it out to see if they nail it.

Mad Magazine Batman collects all of the craziness of their Batman stories in a special. If you’re a Mad fan this is for you. If you’re not a Mad fans, well you’re missing out.

Be sure to scroll through the covers of the week below!

That’s it for this week! See you next Sunday with an all new InvestComics Comic Hot Picks!

Invest wisely.
