The Weird Catch Up: Another Valiant Post

Screen shot 2015-03-30 at 3.40.18 PM

This has been a pretty weird last two weeks.

– Common announced to have signed some kind of DC Movie deal where he will appear in the Suicide Squad as an unconfirmed character – my money is on John Stewart. Imagine the race politics of a black Daily show host!

– a “Miles Morales” Easter Egg has been found in Daredevil.

– There was a $20 presale for a C2E2 exclusive that is no selling for $80 and is no longer a C2E2 Exclusive.

– A “fake” Age of Ultron end of movie Spoiler video

– Weird Ms.Marvel Speculation that has resulted in blue label CGC 9.8 First appearance of Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel selling for very close to the same as the First appearance of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel. Its Crazy.

And with the Avengers Age of Ultron coming out at the end of the month you know there are going to be some crazy easter eggs / speculation articles coming out of it.

But I’m going to talk about the Valiant Movie Franchise because I didn’t really touch the surface with my last post, so here is a run down and update of the Valiant Universe Movie Keys.

So Valiant and Sony have announced a five movie partnership with Bloodshot coming out in 2017 , this has resulted in Eternal Warrior #4, the first appearing of Bloodshot to explode in value.

The Valiant movie schedule is Bloodshot, Harbinger, Bloodshot 2, Harbinger 2, Harbinger Wars.

So here are the books to be looking for,

Eternal Warrior #4 – first appearance of Bloodshot

0-1
Rai #0 – (as pointed out by OCguy72) the first FULL appearance of Bloodshot, currently selling for $15 – $25.

Harbinger #1 – first appearance of Harbinger  – This book has been selling well for the past two years, but its currently hitting the $150 mark in raw condition!

harbinger2

Harbinger #2 has a lot of potential as its the first appearance of ROCK, (and Swallow and Sparrow) a founding Harbinger foundation member, who should be appearing in the films. Harbinger #2 – 16 all different first appearances and signficance. However, Rock should play an important role in any Harbinger film.

Screen shot 2015-03-16 at 10.00.22 PM

Solar Man of the Atom #3 is very undervalued at the moment. Currently selling for $30 to $50, it is the first appearance of Toyo Hardara, who is the end all bad guy in the Valiant universe. This character was also very prevelent in the Valiant relaunch of 2012.

Did I miss a book that you think is going to be important in the Valiant Film Universe? Comment below!

FCBD Speculation 20

Screen shot 2015-04-20 at 11.50.46 PM

Free Comic Book Day is coming up in two weeks, May 2nd and its a great day for all things comic books. Most stores hold sales, contests, signing AND they give away free books. I am a big advocate of going to comic book stores BEFORE the FCBD and offering money for the FCBD books. Currently full sets of 50 are selling for $70 on ebay! But here is a run down of a few of the individual books you should be looking for.

Here are three books that have sparked my interested, I’ll update this list if I find anymore. If you have any suggestions comment below!

divergence

DC 2015 Convergence FCBD #NN
This first book had already had one or two presale sales of $10. This is one of the highest print run books of FCBD so tread lightly. However, it is the first appearance of the new Batman – this book has potential, but it really only prints up a preview of Batman #41. This could be like the Rocket Racoon book from last year, but again, tread lightly.

STK666879

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IDW 2015 FCBD #1
Here is another book that has been selling for $10 already! However, this book has been steadily selling for $10 on ebay presale for the last two weeks! This book includes the “Is Donatello dead?!?” story that everyone’s been waiting for. The creative team arn’t publicly speaking about Donatello’s status, but maybe this entire book will? Based on what happens, this book could have long term potential.

STK666533Fight Club FCBD 
This book is the continuation of the Fight Club movie storyline! This book has a lot of potential because of the Movies success and popularity. This book should make non comic book fans come into comic book stores looking to continue the story!

STK666538Hip Hop Family Tree Three in One
Back for more? Following the massive popularity of last years Fantagraphics Hip Hop Family Tree Two in One comes a Three in one. The 2014 FCBD edition is the first Hip Hop Family Tree book that can be CGC graded and it started selling for $10 – 20 last year! Now that Fantagraphics have announced an monthly on-going Hip Hop Family Tree series – this book has a lot of potential for long term demand.

If you’re just going to stores to pick up free books, please spend money on something, even if its the latest My Little Pony Comic. This event only happens by continued support of retailers! Again, go to your favourite retailer before the event and tell them you will pay for copies if need be. 

Is there a book I didn’t mention that you think has potential? Mention it below!

Valiant Comic Watch: Sony Confirms the Bloodshot Movie

Screen shot 2015-03-16 at 10.11.34 PMThis has been speculated and rumored on for the last few months and more so these past two weeks but it has been confirmed by Sony and Valiant today that the two companies have joined a five movie project bringing the Valiant universe to life.

Sony and Valiant also confirmed that the first film to be released will be Bloodshot in 2017. Bloodshot’s first appearance Eternal Warrior #4 has already been trending upwards as of this week. This book has been selling for $30 to $40 by itself on ebay. Right now this is the book to look for, and it has great holding potential.

$_57
Valiant and Sony have two directors already tied in for the Bloodshot film so the likelihood of it actually happening is very high. Plus the new Jeff Lemire, Bloodshoot Reborn title is a great read! Bloodshot is coming back baby!

xAnother thing that happened this week is Iceman comes out as gay in All New X-Men #40. Its really a comical panel where the information is revealed. The Market wasn’t very responsive to the Northstar wedding issues, but when it comes to Marvel you never know.

Holly-weird : Preacher Speculation

Screen shot 2015-04-20 at 10.46.19 PM

First and foremost, big shout-out to Simon Payne. Check out his Speculation from the UK article on Comicbookinvest.com! 

It was announced on Sunday that Elizabeth Perkins would be playing Vyla Quincannon a meat factor owner. A Character name that does not appear in the Preacher comic book. However the last name is familiar.

Simon Payne was quick to point out that the character description for her character is very similar to that of Odin Quincannon – the owner of a meat processing plant.

2033004-42

The Quincannon name first appears in Preacher #42 a book where all the ebay buy it nows below $10 have dried up in the past day or two, with a single CGC 9.8 selling ofr $60 after multiple relistings. This book has a lot of potential and is one you should be looking for now, before more news comes out about the TV-Show.

Week in Review: April 20: Batman Endgame

Screen shot 2015-04-19 at 9.59.36 PMThis was brought up on the Comic Book Invest website earlier today. So this post is a summary of whats happening with the Batman Endgame story line leading into Batman: Convergence.

Scott Snyder has said for the past few months to expect big things to happen in the Batman Universe. Batman Endgame has been getting rave reviews and has been selling well in both comic book stores and in the comic book after market. The final part of the storyline comes out on April 29 and the story is continued directly after in the DC FCBD book that comes out on May 2 2015. As with all FCBD comics, the books are shipped to retailers weeks in advance – this is to account for shortages or damages allowing the distributor company to send replacements – so that more customers get the books they want on FCBD.

As revealed in the linked article, the FCBD book explains that Batman and Joker died in the previous issue never to return – and the issue is continued in Batman Convergence. Solicitations for Batman #41 suggested that Bruce Wayne would be replaced as batman but now it is confirmed that in Batman #41 Bruce Wayne is dead and commissioner Gordon will take on the reign as a new Batman.

So here are the books you should be looking for.

Gordon of Gotham #1 – This is the first Commissioner Gordon solo book

51fv3mnmPKL
Batman #35 Endgame Part 1
There are convention variants and a rare combo-pack edition for this book. All covers have a lot of potential. Depending on how long this Batman lasts, the Batman Endgame storyline is going to have legs for years to come, with the possibility of becoming another staple Batman Storyline.

Batman #40 is going to be a big book since it is going to be the Death issue. The covers to look for are the 1:25 AND HIGHER variant covers and the digital copy variant which is already selling at presale auction for $15+!

BATMAN-40-
Divergence DC FCBD is going to be a new beginning for Batman. So Already this has the potential for being the 2015 FCBD Speculation winner. (But there is another HIP HOP Family Tree that looks good! (I know, I’ll talk about FCBD Speculation before FCBD I hope.))

Image Display Program – FAQ and Variant List

Screen shot 2015-04-13 at 10.35.27 PM In November of 2014 Image Comics started a promotion where retailers would sign up and receive copies of select books. The retailer is able to return all unsold copies and only pay for copies they sell – This helps bring Image Comics into markets and stores that might otherwise not order Image, it also allowed retailers to give there customers a taste of what the publisher had to offer. Starting in November these books had unique covers feature the new Image Comics Logo, the program is still on-going however the unique variant covers were discontinued, announced by Image on March 25, 2015.

Holly-Weird?! Adam Beach to play Slipknot in Suicide Squad?

Screen shot 2015-03-30 at 3.40.18 PMThree days ago the Winnipeg Press (Adam Beach’s home town newspaper) ran an article that said Adam Beach was rumoured to play Slipknot in the new Suicide Squad film. This was after the David Ayer Cast tweet. There has been some speculation on who Adam Beach would play in the film, however, there still isn’t a definite answer.

With Slipknot currently making the comic book website rounds, it is time to start buying up his first appearance, still readily available on ebay for under $5.

Slipknot first appears in Fury of the Firestorm #28 – this is the second volume of the book, published in 1984.

$_57
If this rumour proves to be true this book should see a very clear increase in demand.

Happy Speculating!
