March Hit List 5 – March is Over

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AMThis is the last March Hit List – You know what they say “all goods things come to an end” – well that counts with mediocre hit-lists made on comic book speculation blog. Heres two books that have recently started to heat up.

Screen shot 2015-03-30 at 4.15.26 PMNew 52: Futures End #47 – the first appearance of Tim Drake as Batman Beyond. This book has been steadily selling for $10 – $12 on ebay for the last few days. This book can still be found at your local comic book store, but brings up two other books you should be looking for that should be effected by this long term, the first appearance of Tim Drake – and the first appearance of Batman Beyond.

imagesBatman_Beyond_v.1_1

Tim Drake first appearances in Batman #436 – CGC 9.8 copies can sell for $300+ – but raw copies sell for around $10 all day on ebay. This book can still be found while long book hunting for a few bucks.
Batman Beyond’s first appearance is Batman Beyond #1 – its a character that first appeared on the animated batman television show before crossing over into the comic world. This book has been steadily rising over the last two years based on Batman Beyond’s use in DC’s New 52. This book still holds a lot of potential.

It was announced this week that Psylocke would be appearing in the new X-Men Apocalypse film. This was kind of expected but now its been made official. While her first appearances are out of the grasps of most speculators due to their current values and over speculation (New Mutants Annual #2 / Captain Britain #8) – one book that still holds a lot of potential is Psylocke’s first series bearing her name from 2010 and the earlier series X-Men Sword of the Braddocks #1 the first Psylocke focused series. on her on. Pyscloke #1 from 2010. This is a book to be looking for.

Image Display Logo List UPDATE

All good things have to end. I was just informed that the Image Display Logo Variants or the “Image Comics Floor Display” are being discontinued in its current state. Here is an exerpt from the e-mail recieved by participating retailers,

Dear Retailer,
From this title on, there will no longer be separate covers for the floor display consignment copies. Instead you will receive additional copies of the regular cover. We sincerely hope this helps with your ability to track sales and minimizes any unnecessary complications when it comes time to process your returns.
The title you will be receiving in the Floor Display Program for 04/01 is:
NO MERCY #1

So this could very well be one of my very last posts about the Image Display Variants. This week we have one new Variant. The MASTER LIST can be found at the link.

Invincible #118 (March 25, 2015)

Valiant Comic Watch Hitlist PART 2

Screen shot 2015-03-16 at 10.11.34 PM

To continue my previous Valiant post (found here), here are some other books you should be looking for.

Rai is on fire. Rai #0 had a pretty high print run, higher than most pre-unity Valiants, but its still averaging $20. Rai #1 2 3 4 5 in NM seem to be commanding more than #0, selling for $30 – $40.

$_57-3 $_12

Magnus Robot Fighter #7 – First appearance of the X-O Manowar armour. Averaging $8 to $10 on ebay.

$_57-2

Eternal Warrior #4 – This is the first appearance of Bloodshot, and it has been steadily selling for $25 – $40. A character with many rebooted on-going titles, this character has a huge history with Valiant.

$_57

Bloodshot #6 the first appearance of Ninjack sells for $8. This book has a lot more potential then some of the other mentioned books as the new on-going title by Matt Kindt should be an indicator of what Valiant has planned for this character.

ICO003335_1Harbinger #1 is selling for $150 in Near mint raw condition. Which is crazy. CRAZY.
Another Harbinger book to look for is Harbinger #10 the first appearance of the H.A.R.D. Corps. This book has been selling for about $8, and has always been dollar bin stuffing.

March Hit list Part QUATRE (4) Part 2

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AM

March Hit-list part Four continued!

Crash_Ryan_Issue_1_CoverCrash Ryan, first published as a four part mini-series by Epic Comics / Marvel Comics in 1984, the story later continued in Dark Horse Presents. The production options of Crash Ryan has been purchased by a Producer with the intentions of making it into a feature film, as reported by Variety. The four part mini-series can be found largely in dollar bins and for under $5 – however online, the complete four part mini-series has been averaging $40! with Crash Ryan #1 commanding around $20 on its own.

It was announced recently by a CBR interview (and by Comics Heating up) that Steven T. Seagle was writing a pilot episode for American Virgin. Steve T Seagle is a co-creator of Ben10 and has branched out from his comic book work to television and animation storyboarding. So thats a good sign. I spoke with Becky Cloonan (American Virgin artist) at the Toronto Comic Con presented by Fan Expo and she said that something was defintiley happening but couldn’t confirm anything. There were also suggestions that are leading me to think YOU SHOULD BUY Southern Cross #1. The Fan Expo variant was limited to 1000 copies, are selling for $20, which will be regarded as a steal in a few months. American Virgin never had great sales, so many American Virgin #1s ended up in bargain bins.

Thor God of Thunder #12 (2013) 
First appearance of Roz Soloman. This book ties in with the new female Thor Jason Aaron movement, which has resulted in this book selling in the last few days for between $24 and $29.99! This is a book to look for with a lot of future potential.

Word?!? X-Men Apocalypse – Jubilee Cast

Yesterday it was announced that Jubilee would be appearing in the new X-Men First-Class sequel, X-Men Apocalypse. It feels like every day there is a new announcement resulting in a book getting hot and this one was rather Predictable when you look at what Marvel has been doing the past few months pushing towards more female published characters, so Jubilee having a front role in the new X-Men film makes sense.

This has resulted in Jubilee’s first appearance Uncanny X-Men #244 to start heating up astronomically. Currently Near Mint copies seem to be selling for $30 with Fine and Very Fine condition copies hitting $15. This is big news for a book that has largely been neglected for the past twenty years.

Uncanny_X-Men_Vol_1_257 Uncanny_X-Men_Vol_1_244

Another book that should see some movement based on this news is Uncanny X-Men #257 – the first appearance of Jubilee’s new costume.

My March Hit list 4 Part 2 Post got knocked into tomorrow.

Week in Review: March 25

Today is new comic book day and two new books are coming out that are already heating up on ebay. These two books have sold out at diamond and are going for second prints.

IMG_0002 IMG

Star Wars Darth Vader #3 -This book introduces the character Aphra and is her first appearance. This book has been heavily discussed on many comic book news websites, so this is just a reminder to pick up as many copies as you can. Many retailers are reporting they were allocated only receiving 50-70% of their initial order from Diamond for
this title. Its currently selling for $10 – $15 with the 1:25 variant going for $60 and up.

urlWe Can Never Go Home #1 Black Mask. This is another Black Mask title from Matt Rosenberg, writer and co-creator of Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Ways to Die, title. This book sold out at Diamond a few days ago and has been averaging $6 to 8 on ebay. This book has a lot of potential. And very soon, the limited edition variants will be offered on Matt Rosenberg’s Ashcan Press website. 

IMG_0001
Lazarus was picked up by Legendary TV yesterday. Resulting in Lazarus #1 selling online for upwards of $10! Which is big news for a dead book that retailers could only sell at cover last week! There are a few variants for this title still available for very reasonable prices. The most reasonable being the CBLDF.

ikillgiants01_coverAnother book to look for is I Kill Giants #1, the 2008 Image Series. This week it was announced this book was in development to be a film resulting in a full #1 to 6 first print set ebay auction with four days left at $80! I Kill Giants #1 first and second prints are quickly becoming hot commodities.

March Hit list Part QUATRE (4) Part 1

Screen shot 2015-03-06 at 2.25.20 AM

You can check out March’s Part 1 list here, Part 2 Here, Part 3 (Valiant Watch to be continued) Here.
A lot of Hollywood announcements happening recently so this post is a lot of catch-up.

dcendgame1_54fdaa9adeae75.80599748A book that just hit the shelves hitting $10 on ebay, Batman Detective Comics Endgame #1 One-shot. Will the Batman Endgame be important after the DC universe restarts again? Will this storyline lead into the universe restarting? If this book is an indicator of anything, these new 52 first print Batman titles are ones to hold onto.

Screen shot 2015-03-23 at 11.09.16 PM

Chrononauts #1 – This book has seen a lot of news articles springing up lately. Mark Millar is very good at promoting his creator owned works, a lot of different news websites (non-comic related) have been reporting about the optical illusion that appears on the cover for issue #1. It was also announced a few days ago that Universal had bought the rights to Chrononauts with the intentions of turning it into a film. Unlike Nemesis and Superior which Millar stated many times he would produce with FOX under his Creative Consulting role at Fox, which largely relies on the success or failure of Miller’s first project Kingsmen: The Secret Service.

Rachel-Rising1b

Terry Moore revealed this week via Twitter that he was writing a pilot for his Abstract Series Rachel Rising. Rachel Rising #1 has been going up in value for the past three years, with subsequent printings of issue #1 also commanding cash. This makes up ask one question – Will Terry Moore write Jeff Branget, OFG member who appears and dies in Rachel Rising #26 into the TV-Show? And who will portray him? I always pictured him as a Ving Rhames type. At 2014 SDCC Terry Moore announced Alcon Entertainment had partnered with him to make Rachel Rising into a tv-show. TIme will tell if they are still in the game working with Terry however, now is a good time to be holding on to Rachel Rising #1s.

This post will be continued in a Part 2 which will be posted tomorrow! And remember to Tweet @TerryMoore with the Hashtag #BRINGBRANGETTOTV
