March Hit List Part Un (1)

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AMAs a continuation of the “week of” posts heres a new article trend I’m going to start. The Hit-List, A rundown of a few books heating up on and off ebay. Detailing a book or two you should be on the hunt for.

During the Guardians of the Galaxy movie hype the first appearance of Groot became a very hot topic. Was both Tales to Astonish #13 and Incredible Hulk Annual #5 significantly heating up. Another book that sold well and still sells well is Where Monsters Dwell #6 (1970) – reprinting Tales to Astonish #13 (1960). Based on this – another book that has a lot of potential for growth is Shazam #8. Shazam #8 reprints Marvel Family #1 – the first appearance of Black Adam – with the first “modern” appearance of Black Adam appearing 20 issues later. With Dwayne “the rock” Johnson as the only signed on actor for the upcoming Shazam film, playing Black Adam, this book has a lot of potential.

On Thursday (March 5) – another character was cast in the Lucifer TV-Show – The character “Maze”. This has largely been speculated to be DC’s Mazikeen. Mazikeen’s first appearance is Sandman (Volume 2 – Neil Gaiman) #22 – this book on ebay has completed sales from $5 – $20 – but can still be found in back-issue boxes for around $5.
It all depends on how this character is executed – but right now easy money can be made on the quick flip with this book.

Word?!?! Pussycats #0 E-Comix

This week a new book has come out from a new publisher (E-Comix.net) and has already sold out at Diamond and most online retailers. Currently its selling for $15 – $25 on ebay.

This book is based on three porn actors past and present and is very dirty. Which could be why some stores didn’t order any copies resulting in such a low print run. If you can find copies, this is a good buy as prices seem to just be going up and no one is really talking about it.

Arrowed: CW Looks to expand the DC Tv-Show on-going series: PART 2

The characters so far set to appear in the new CW show are, an older Firestorm, Captain Cold, The Atom and Black Canary. Speculation wise there arn’t a lot of books that havn’t been spoken for, however, here are a few that might have slipped through the cracks.

First appearance of Modern Black Canary – Black Canary in Arrow is a character named Sara Lance. There are two Black Canary’s in the DC Universe Laurel Lance and her mother Dinah Drake Lance. The CW’s Black Canary is most likely the younger version, so they can add a plotted back story with flash backs and other nonsense. Her First appearance is Justice League of America #75. A Reasonably findable book. (also, notice who is on the cover, Green Arrow AND the Atom. Hm)

With Captain Cold being put into his own TV-Show and the other cast announcement trends on Arrow and the Flash, it is only a matter of time before the Rouges become an integral part of the CW Universe. The Rouges is a super Villain team made up of Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, The Trickster and the Mirror Master, just to name the inaugural members. The Rouges first appeared in Flash #130 (Volume 1) – THis book has a lot of potential – the Rouges team could be a rubric on other possible characters to be added in the universe.

Also, another character to keep an eye on is the Vixen. With her own CW Universe animated series being released later this year, her first appearance, Action Comics #521 at $50 is a bargain. Plus she was just added into the Downloadable content of the Lego Batman game. What does this mean? Vixen isn’t going anywhere for the time being and has a lot of potential moving room.

SOON: CW Flash Trickster Speculation

Arrowed: CW Looks to expand the DC Tv-Show on-going series: PART 1

Last month Deadline.com started the Atom TV-Show rumours – that the CW producers behind Arrow and Flash were looking to make a new on going series based around the Atom. (With Brandon Rooth reprising his role from Arrow).  Today more rumblings have come out about another CW / DC TV show and all signs are pointing to the Atom, with Brandon Rooth, Victor Garber, Wentworth Miller and Caity Lotz Star. The confirmed casting adds clout to the Atom TV-Show rumours.

In Part one of this article I’m going to focus on the Atom Character.

urlThe Atom, Ray Palmer, first appears in DC Showcase #34. For the past year or so this book has been climbing in value. Hitting $100 – $300 is fair to good condition, with graded copies fetching much higher numbers. This book still has moving potential but is very hard to find within a speculation driven market.

Atom_Vol_1_1Published a year after Ray Palmer’s first appearance, the Atom #1 (1962) is the first on-going series based around the Atom. This book is very hard to find under $200, and again, has a lot of moving room, featuring the first appearance of not only infamous villlian the Plant Master but Ray Palmer’s girlfriend Maya first appears in this book. If there is a CW series, Maya WILL appear in it.

Ray Palmer was recently brought back into the DC universe after a few years of inactivity and lack of popularity by Jeff Lemire in a Giant-Size One Shot “The Atom” from 2011 – being published out of the Blackest Night Storyline. This book became such a hit that the story was continued as an Action Comic back up story. Ray Palmer was also added into the NEW 52 through his appearance in Jeff Lemire’s Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. First appearing in the first issue. Both of these books should have a good shelf life based on how the character is used.

Part 2 – including write ups about the other actors optioned in according to this article.

Supergirl Starz: Cyborg Superman

A few weeks ago there was a “bombshell” announcement that Jimmy Olsen would be appearing in the upcoming CBS Supergirl tv-show as a black man trying to date Supergirl’s alter ego. This was in the comic website news for a few days but quickly went away.

Today two more actors were cast in the Supergirl Tv-Show – the characters Hank Henshaw and Alex Danvers. This brings two books into the comic book speculation picture.

The Adventures of Superman 500 - Hank Henshaw becomes Cyborg Superman – This book has so many variants and arguably started the 90’s comic collector’s trade, with the death of superman storyline. This book should be largely ignored in reference to Supergirl speculation.

Adventures_of_Superman_466-1

The Adventures of Superman #466 – This book features the first appearance of Hank Henshaw – and sells for around $20 online. This book can still be found in long boxes for under $10 – but it takes some digging. This book has the most potential out of all the books so far to explode in value – depending on how this character is used in the series. So far he’s stated as a villain which is great news!
