Comic First Appearances for 2019 – Comics To Invest

Sometimes I am super frustrated I wasn’t alive during the bronze or the silver age of comics. Being right there into the action and the beginning of so many great comic series, heroes and villains, seeing the world of comics involve right in front of my eyes with the likes of Stan Lee, Otto Binder, John Broome, Arnold Drake and so many more super talented people.

Then sometimes I am just bummed I wasn’t there to stockpile Action Comics #1 which has a record sale at a whopping $3,207,852.

Somewhere between my adolescence that was the only thoughts I had. I need to find and collect the extremely rare, extremely expensive comics. But that’s just it. They are extremely rare to find and extremely expensive to buy once and if you find them. I hate to break it down do you but you probably won’t be finding Action Comics #1 in a flea market for a buck.

Thankfully though you don’t need to find those in order to get some valuable comics in your hands for cheap and make some profit from them later in the future.

First appearances are happening quite more often than people think.

Yes, Superman’s first appearance is a very lucrative comic to hold in your hands but in the off chance you are not Ayman Hariri then you might want to accept it and move on to something that you can actually obtain.

So here’s a list of comics to invest I think you might find extremely helpful if you are into collecting comics either for your personal collection or as a potential future investment.

Female Furies #1

Female Furies #1 Cover

Talent

Writer: Cecil Castellucci
Artist: Adriana Melo
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: February 6, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

All their lives the Female Furies have been raised to be the meanest, most cunning and most ruthless fighting force on all of Apokolips. So why are Granny Goodness’ girls left behind every time the men go to war? With the might of New Genesis hanging over the planet, and the Forever People making mincemeat out of Darkseid’s army, Granny thinks it’s about time that changed.
And so, Big Barda, Aurelie, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth and Stompa set out to beat the boys at their own game. Little do they know the game is rigged-and one accidental murder could spell disaster for them all!
FEMALE FURIES is an exciting new miniseries starring some of Jack Kirby’s coolest Fourth World characters by the writer of SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL and the artist of PLASTIC MAN!

Not an easy read mostly due to its story and not an easy recommendation for pretty much any audience yet it contains the first appearance of Aurelie so we decided it was right to add it to the list.

Female Furies despite the amazing Kirby like art lacks pretty much everything else the character development is probably by far the worse we’ve seen in a while.

Justice League Dark #7

Justice League Dark 7

Talent

Justice League: Dark has been one of our favorite DC Comics of 2018 and they certainly keeping things up for 2019. With issue seven of the comic series, DC is partially introducing us to The Otherkind: The Soup, The Rip and The Offspring who make their (partially) 1st appearance.

People have been talking about The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl since issue one and with good reason that is. It’s a humorous, witty and with unparallel art.

DC Comics Solicitation

Old Lady Harley #3

Old Lady Harley #3

Talent

Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Inaki Miranda
Cover Art: Amanda Conner
Publisher: DC Comics

Harley Quinn fans have been going nuts for Old Lady Harley. Early still in the story of the series we find that Old Lady Harley is one of the best key comic series for 2019 since it introduces not just one, not just two but three different “new” characters.

Old Lady Harley #3 gives brings out the first appearance of Bane Twins (descendants of Bane) as well as the first appearance of Old Man Bane and the first appearance of Old Man Joker as a cameo.

If you are collecting comics for value then this is one you need to get your hands on right away.

Harley Quinn #57 Variant

Harley Quinn #57

Talent

Writer: Sam Humphries
Artist: John Timms
Cover Art: Guillem March
Variant Cover Art: Julian Totino Tedesco
Publisher: DC Comics

It seems that Harley Quinn is a gift that keeps on giving and right after the Old Lady Harley that we talked above comes the first appearance of Mirand’r at Harley Quinn (2016) #57 as well as the amazing Variant cover art by Julian Totino Tedesco which is almost impossible to find anymore.

If you get your hands in one of those, trust me, it’s a keeper.

Action Comics #1006

Action Comics #1006

Talent

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Ryan Sook
Cover Art: Ryan Sook
Variant Cover Art: Francis Manapul
Publisher: DC Comics

I shouldn’t probably explain Action Comics all that much and how fans loved it for decades. I will explain though that in Action Comics #1006 a new antagonist makes her first appearance.

Leone is the leader of an underground mob. The puppetmaster of crime in Metropolis.

Also it’s a pretty damn good comic issue to get for your collection anyway.

Winter Soldier #2

Winter Soldier #2

Talent

Writer: Kyle Higgins
Artist: Rod Reis
Cover Art: Rod Reis
Publisher: Marvel

I instantly loved the story of the Winter Soldier comic series. I atoned Bucky that helps people leave their previous criminal lives the same way he did. Yet this proves difficult. Especially when Hydra sents people your path to murder you.

In Winter Soldier #2 R.J., a teenage assassin is making his first appearance. He’s been sent to kill the man he’s been modeled after: the Winter Soldier

Don’t think about this one. Buy it.

Avengers #12

Avengers #12

Talent

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Ed McGuinness & Cory Smith
Cover Art: Alan Davis
Publisher: Marvel

As I previously mentioned first appearances are happening quite often nowadays but team-first appearances? Not so much. Also, teams that include Black Panther, Ka-Zar and Zabu, Gorilla Man, Odin, Wasp, Okoye, and Rosalind Solomon all as one? Well, this might be indeed the most bizarre team in the Marvel Universe.

This extremely rare team up is happening at Avengers #12 and it one comic issue you’ll need to buy because it has potential.

Also at this issue, we get our first glimpse of the Shadow Colonel and his Shadow Colonel and his squad of undead revolutionaries.

This is a wonderful comic issue with some amazing art inside and out. By far one of my favorite covers in series.
