Comics to Invest In 2014 Part 9


Welcome to Part 9 to this comics to invest in 2014, and we've got more key issue comics to spotlight. These are the ones from this past year that were the best comic investments to snag, or still are some good ones to seek out as the year closes in.

If you're wondering or looking to invest in comics, this list covers a lot of keys and first appearances that may soon be sought out as well. Definitely some good stuff in this series.

Missed Part 8? Just click this Part 8 link to go back and read up. If you're ready for this part, let's get on with more these comics to invest in 2014.




Strange Tales #178

Adam Warlock has been the hot topic for a while now, and having his cocoon glimpsed at the end credits of Thor 2 The Dark World and then shown in Guardians of the Galaxy with his cocoon broken and empty has many fans expecting the inevitable for this character's future career in Hollyweird. However, if you have Adam Warlock is it safe to say that Magus is primed to walk the red carpet also?

Lots of comic investing fans think so, and the first appearance of Magus in Strange Tales #178 is getting attention in the market for sure. The alternate future version of an Adam Warlock gone insane has already had many rumblings from fans pretty much soon after the rumors of Adam Warlock began. 2014, however, did see the first appearance of Magus heat up and pretty quickly.

eBay - Limited selection at the moment for unslabbed copies, and no CGC so far.

mycomicshop - Only raw copies here as well. Highest is a low FN and the other is a readers copy.




Amazing Spider-Man #50

Daredevil Netflix TV series already has it's Kingpin and none other than Vincent D'onofrio will be playing the Kingpin of Crime for the series. D'onofrio's casting happened earlier this year and I approve since D'onofrio has proved himself to play the villain role quite well.

The first appearance of Kingpin in Amazing Spider-Man #50 is already one of the most sought out keys in the Amazing Spider-Man title and quite valuable already as well. This book may get another jump in demand once the TV series hits Netflix for streaming.

Nevertheless, it is an ASM investment comic regardless, and you can't go wrong with Silver Age Amazing Spider-Man keys.

eBay - Lots of copies for raw unslabbers. Quite a few CGC copies at the moment also. Highest graded copy is a 9.2 low NM Signature Series and quite a few 8.5 VF+s as well.

mycomicshop - Slabbed goodness here for this issue as expected. Highest is a PGX 9.4 NM, but it is a restored copy. The highest non-restored is a CGC 8.0 VF. Two very low raw copies also here at the moment.

ComicConnect - A whopping CGC 9.8 goes up for auction 11/10/2014. It's a regular Universal as well. Two other CGC copies go up for auction as well. Only one CGC copy is available for immediate sale and that's an 8.5 VF+

ComicLink - Four CGC copies and the highest is a 9.2 low NM followed by a 9.0 VF/NM. If you're more on a budget, there's a 7.0 FN/VF CGC copy as well. Only two lower grade raw copies are available.




The Infinity Gauntlet #1

Surprise move with this one, but it has seen heat this year and is still heating up. Why? It's because everyone is speculating that Phase 3 of Marvel's cinematic experience will lead up to a movie that will borrow heavily from this Infinity Gauntlet storyline.

9.8s are on the move and dropping around the $150 mark already. This also is one of the most beloved cosmic comic series by Jim Starlin and a huge fan favorite! This is definitely one to get this year, and still is. I'm predicting this one will heat up even more when it reaches 2015.

eBay - Definitely not scarce on eBay and there's no problem finding raw copies to snag. A few 9.8 CGCs but all are Signature Series, a few 9.6s as well.

mycomicshop - Quite a few copies here as well and the only graded copy is a CBCS 9.8. The rest are raw and the highest grade for unslabbed comics concerning this issue here is a VF/NM.

ComicLink - Highest CGC copy is a 9.6 NM+, and it's a Signature Series slab. Two 9.2 low NMs with one of them being an SS copy as well. Last option is a 9.0 VF/NM. All copies so far are CGC.




Iron Man #54

The first appearance of Moondragon and since director James Gunn has expressed interest in adding two more female Guardians of the Galaxy members in the future, the rumor mills have already been churning. There have been a few names, but Moondragon does seem to be a strong choice as the character is strongly linked to many characters that already appeared in Phase One and Two.

In the comics, she is the daughter of Drax the Destroyer, as well as found by Thanos' father, the Mentor. Her character has been linked to Thor, and she does have a beef with Thanos. Not really known whether or even if they can use the daughter of Drax info in a Guardians of the Galaxy movie or not.

Moondragon's first appearance is in Iron Man #54 but not as Moondragon. No, she first appears under the name of Madame MacEvil in her first introduction into the Marvel Comics Universe. Later in the comics, she would also join the Guardians of the Galaxy as well.

Moondragon has a good chance of being a new addition to a future Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This one is being over-looked by most on a grand scale currently!

eBay - Limited selection for this issue. Not many unslabbed copies at all, and zero CGC at the moment.




Amazing Spider-Man #51

We talked about the first appearance of Kingpin in this Part 9, well, here's the 2nd appearance of Kingpin. Wilson Fisk has always been a popular villain and he's become the main nemesis for such characters like Daredevil and the Punisher.

Amazing Spider-Man #51 is already one of the more sought out key issue comics from the ASM first series, but the Daredevil Netflix TV series may see even more interest in this book as well as Wilson Fisk's first appearance in the issue before this one. Actually, this comic is a good one to snag as a comic investment for any year.

eBay - No problem finding unslabbed copies for this 2nd Kingpin appearance. A few CGC options with the highest grade being a 9.4 NM followed by a 9.0 VF/NM and an 8.5 VF+. Other graded copies available also for now.

mycomicshop - Only one raw FN/VF copy here at the time of this writing.

ComicConnect - Seven copies here and all are unslabbed except for one. Slabbed copy is a 9.0 VF/NM. Highest raw copy is an 8.5 VF+.

ComicLink - Only three CGC copies here with the two highest both being 8.5 VF+s. Third slabbed copy is a VF 8.0. One raw copy here at the same grade.




Daredevil #105

Okay, if we're gonna go with the first appearance of Moondragon as Madame MacEvil, then we should cover the first appearance of the character as Moondragon. Daredevil #105 is the first appearance of the character as Moondragon, and also has the detailed origin of her character.

This one is not that widely known just yet. That means it's being highly over-looked in the current market, but that may not be for long.

eBay - Limited selection but there are some raw copies. Some of them are in comic lots as well. No luck when it comes to CGC copies for this issue on the mighty eBay at the time of this writing.

mycomicshop - Only one low VG 3.5 here so far. It's also a raw copy too.




Alrighty, we're done with Part 9, and there's been a few speculations on this particular list in terms of Marvel's upcoming cinematic plans. We still have some more to go through for sure.

If you missed Part 8, just click the PREVIOUS link to see all about that.

Part 10 this comics to invest in 2014 is ready with more comic investments that would've ideally been best to get this year and others that still are or will soon be. Actually many are going to be heavy hitters. Just click the PART 10 link to continue and enjoy!
