Top 60 Most Valuable Comic Books from the Modern Age (1992-Date)Find previous columns here. This August has been very plentiful with hot comics. The Superman and Supergirl issues that were shipped to stores were supposed to not be available for sale. Replacement copies are being sent. The "official" reason is the two comics have nothing to do with the Year of the Villainwhich is stamped on the cover. Though as Bleeding Cool has pointed out Catwoman which came out on the same day also had the Year of the Villain banner on her cover, though it also had nothing to do with Year of the Villain. I actually read Catwoman to see. It was a decent issue. Though it did indeed have zip to do with Year of the Villain. House of X and Powers of X were bi-weekly making it tougher for stores to increase their orders to meet demand. The two titles are red hot currently. Will the rest of the series be as hot once all the stores have had time to get their increased orders in for the rest of the series? Time will tell. Unbelievably, as I was working on this a person bought a collection that had Tales of Suspense 57, the first appearance of Hawkeye and had me check them out. I knew it was the issue because I had it listed as part of this week's 25 hot comics. It was a rough copy and it was part of an all or nothing deal. Buy this whole box or none of it. The box had 90s Superman comics in it, which I wish was in heavy demand because we have tons of them. Along with the Superman comics were Tarzan comics that for me at least would be tough to sell currently. It was quite the wide selection of comics with too many that I would have trouble moving so I passed. Though I would love to say we have the first appearance of Hawkeye, even in rough condition. I have started reading other websites more and more that deal with back issues.

With so many superhero movies on the horizon, it can be easy to forget that the stories actually originate from an artistic medium: comic books. While most people may think about costumed crime fighters when someone mentions comics, there are numerous genres and types of stories worth exploring. Before dumps even more enjoyable comics onto your pull list, consider smoking a bowl and diving into some of these adventurous reads. In the span of just 12 issues, Moore weaves an intricate narrative while thoroughly breaking down each character, giving readers a unique look into the psyches of various heroes as they face the biggest challenge of their careers. After being the star of continuous comic series for more than 70 years, it can be hard to pick out a definitive Batman story. Long before Brian K. After a mysterious disease wipes out every male creature on Earth except for Yorick Brown and his pet capuchin Ampersand, the survivors have to restructure their lives and move forward. Instead of focusing on Spider-Manthe six-issue arc follows Kraven the Hunter, a. Sergei Kravinoff, after he has supposedly killed and buried Spider-Man. Rather than gloat and spread his success around the supervillain community, the egotistical hunter decides to don a makeshift Spider-Man costume and begin his own war on crime to prove that he is a superior hero. From the bonkers creative team of Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky, the series focuses on Suzie and Jon, two individuals who end up going home together after meeting at a party. What should have been a normal hookup quickly goes off the rails when they realize they both have the ability to stop time when they orgasm. As their relationship develops, so does their thirst for danger as they begin robbing banks and venturing into the outside world as time remains frozen. Chock-full of dirty Easter eggs, the series is one of the most entertaining and funny comics released in recent years. More than almost any other franchise, X-Men, in particular, can be hard to follow due to so many universe-altering stories that constantly leave their timeline convoluted and complicated. Packed with classic concepts like Sentinels, mutant cures and the Hellfire Club, this classic run is considered essential reading for anyone trying to become more familiar with the X-Men. The four Horsemen of Apocalypse are back and slowly manipulating certain global leaders as they try to bring about the rapture. All of the major characters are interesting and have understandable motivations, but the most engaging character is likely Death himself. A cross between Dirty Harry and the Thin White Duke, Death and his posse are trying to stop the remaining horsemen from bringing about the end times. Some people think that Superman is too powerful and nice to be interesting. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
