Speculation: investment involving high risk but also the possibility of high
I have always believed that the icing on the cake of comics is the fact that sometimes they are worth money. They’re entertaining and potentially valuable. I’m a reader first, but have always played the market a bit.
I love investing in modern comics, It’s an endeavor I began in 1988 & enjoyed incredible success along with horrific losses. It’s an exciting emotional roller coaster that starts a new ride every Wednesday. It’s one of my favorite things in this world.
Here are my speculator-y picks of the week:
HUMANS #1 (MR)
(W) Keenan Keller (A/CA) Tom Neely
Apart, they are nothing…deemed by society as outcasts, misfits, losers, no good punks! But together, they are THE HUMANS! The HUMANS is a high-octane, no-holds-barred, ape-biker-gang chopper ride into ’70s exploitation genre bliss. Follow Bobby, Johnny, and all The HUMANS as they fight and fly down the road to oblivion on a ride filled with chains, sex, leather, denim, hair, blood, bananas, and chrome.
WHY take a chance?
It’s pretty a pretty alternative book even for Image.
The creators have already built a counter-culture, fan base self publishing a #0 & posting hilarious anti-collecting rants on Facebook.
Hipsters are going to be drawn to it like really tight jeans & goofy chin hair.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9
(W) Dan Slott (A) Olivier Coipel, Giuseppe Camuncoli (CA) Olivier Coipel
SPIDER-VERSE BEGINS HERE!
* Superstar artist OLIVIER COIPEL (THOR, SIEGE, HOUSE OF M) joins DAN SLOTT to bring you the biggest spider-event ever!
* When a force of evil threatens spider-characters throughout the multiverse, EVERY SPIDER-MAN EVER is needed to save the day!
WHY take a chance?
It’s the second appearance of Spider-Gwen. It’s the first appearance of Spider-Gwen in the 616 Marvel Universe proper.
Buy for five & sell for ten.
There goes the Spider- Gweeeen!
