WHY BLACK ADAM IS ON THE BEST SELLERS LIST

Black Adam. Marvel Comics.

THE CREATIVE TEAM

Namely, the creative team on the movie is star-studded with director Jaume Collet-Serra at the helm. In a few words, superstar Dwayne Johnson stars as the titular anti-hero, Black Adam. In the ranks of the Justice Society of America, are two brilliant actors: Pierce Brosnan stars as Doctor Fate and Aldis Hodge stars as Hawkman.

Already, anticipation is building to an incredible world premiere on October 21st.

SHAZAM! SPIN-OFF

After the success of Shazam!, Warner Bros. is releasing Black Adam as a spin-off and the 12th installment in the DC Extended Universe.

To begin, the plot is about Black Adam being released from his prison after five thousand years. Importantly, he sets out to exact his brand of justice on the world. Originally, the movie received an R-rating from the MPAA. Now, the movie has a PG-13 rating.

 

VISIT THE COLLECTOR’S SHIP!

SALES, SALES, SALES

Boxoffice Pro forecasts that Black Adam’s three-day total is going to be 55-65 million dollars. Moreover, the domestic total is projected to be 135-163 million dollars. In order to celebrate the Black Adam movie, here are five ideas we suggest.

FIVE IDEAS TO CELEBRATE BLACK ADAM

Number 5. Collect the Action Comics (2005) #831 single issue. It showcases the best Superman vs Black Adam battle in the Modern Age of comics.

Number 4. Watch the Shazam! (2019) movie. Since Black Adam is a spin-off, you can get a background on the movie’s plot and its continuity.

Number 3. Since anticipation of a Superman vs Black Adam showdown is high, watch the animated original short-film titled Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam on a potential Superman/Shazam duo against the anti-hero.

Number 2. Collectors love the McFarlane Toys titled the DC Direct BLACK ADAM by Jim Lee 12” Statue. And we can believe why. It’s iconic! Visit our link to buy it on Amazon.

Number 1. Our best idea is self-explanatory. Go to the theaters and watch the movie. Visit the Release Info for international release dates.

RECOMMENDATION:

Watch the Black Adam movie and celebrate the DC Extended Universe.


And that’s our best seller!

*To commemorate the 60 year anniversary of Fantastic Four #5

In our new hotness, we have The Best Sellers List. Here, we cover the greatest battles of a particular character in a comic or series, and how it made it a best-seller. In our new hotness for August, is Invisible Girl in Fantastic Four #5.

First, let’s reveal a poll on Twitter. Then, let’s show how it was a success.

A FAN OF FANTASTIC FOUR AND MARVEL COMICS? CLICK ON FANTASTIC FOUR (1961-1998) #5 (FANTASTIC FOUR (1961-1996)) BELOW TO BUY THE KiNDLE & COMIXOLOGY ON AMAZON.

WHY INVISIBLE WOMAN IS ON THE BEST SELLERS LIST

'Fantastic Four' (1962) #5. Marvel Comics.
Fantastic Four (1962) #5. Marvel Comics.

THE CREATIVE TEAM

Namely, the creative team on the story arc is legendary talent. In a few words, late legendary writer, editor Stan Lee and the incredible artist Jack Kirby collaborate on the story arc. For his part, the legendary writer has created popular Marvel characters and teams such as Spider-Man, X-Men, Daredevil and yes, the Fantastic Four!

When both superstars collaborate on this work, you expect a classic. In fact, the creative team took the world by surprise!

“THE WORLD’S GREATEST GRAPHIC BOOK”

When Stan Lee created the Fantastic Four, it was promoted as “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine!” Though DC Comics was ruling comicdom during the Silver Age, the Fantastic Four sought to change societal attitudes with regards to race, and even, gender roles.

With a team of four super-powered heroes, the FF sported a female figure that over time played a prominent role in many of their adventures. And when Doctor Doom makes his terrifying first appearance for the first time, the female is initially singled out!

Now, the heroes must stop the villain’s raving plans before it is too late. Witness why Invisible Woman may have been the Most Important Hero in the battle.

 

VISIT THE COLLECTOR’S SHIP!

THE BATTLE THAT SOLD THE STORY ARC

Importantly, the battle in Part #5 sold the story arc. When the Fantastic Four (minus Invisible Girl) return from their mission, they must rescue Sue. Comically, Mister Fantastic actually tricks Doctor Doom with a treasure chest containing a chain, and not treasure.

With the trickery, the hostilities are engaged. After a brief scuffle, they discover the villain was a Doombot and that the mastermind and Invisible Girl are in another room. However, it is too late. Wickedly, Doctor Doom activates the switch that empties the room of oxygen.

In Fantastic Four (1962) #5, Mister Fantastic tricks Doctor Doom with a treasure chest containing a chain. Marvel Comics.

Heroically, a captive Invisible Girl springs into action. Quickly, she turns invisible and short-circuits Doom’s machine causing it to explode. Even more, she heads to the room where the heroes are about to breathe their last, and unlocks the door. Soon, air returns and the heroes are saved.

Definitely, this comic changed the damsel-in-distress trope on its head by showing that women could be heroines. And we recommend this comic for its humor, classic feel and intrigue.

Indeed, buy this comic to witness Mister Fantastic stretch over a mile at sea to offer passage between two boats for pirates. In the end, the comic answered why it was touted as “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine” and entertained fans for generations.

SALES, SALES, SALES

Really, Fantastic Four #5 significantly boosted sales for the story arc. In fact, according to Rare Comics, at Number 4, it was the top Fantastic Four comic that year. Let’s compare to the other Top 10 Fantastic Four comics that year.

Number 5. Fantastic Four #4: Features the first appearance of Namor the Sub-Mariner in the Silver Age.

Number 6. Fantastic Four #2: Features the first appearance of the Skrulls in Marvel continuity.

Number 9. Fantastic Four #6: Doctor Doom and Namor team-up against the Fantastic Four.

Number 10. Fantastic Four #3: Features the first appearance of Miracle Man.

RECOMMENDATION:

Definitely, collect Doctor Doom’s first appearance in digital format on Kindle & Comixology.


And that’s our best seller!
