My guess would be the image series "Sex" starting in March. It looks like the kind of thing that would start to get hot

Speculation exists that "Pretty Deadly", written by Kelly Sue DeConnick & illustrated by Emma Rios, would be one of the next hot Image titles:

I agree that Sex is one to look for but Image has a couple other titles coming up that could potentially be hot in the next few months. I would also keep an eye on these upcoming releses from Image:

East of West
Five Ghosts: The Haunting of Fabian Gray

and the upcoming story arc from DC, The Wrath of the First Lantern. The first appearance of the First Lantern fueled the uptick in price of Green Lantern Annual #1. The current arc, Rise of the third Army, is set to end in Green Lantern Corps, Annual #1, which will also be the jumping off point of the new arc. Might be a good time to revisit Green Lantern Annual #1which was a good book, before this arc kicks off. The price has cooled considerably and you should be able to get it at cover price. That said, how they work The First Lantern in the upcoming arc may revive GL Annual #1.

Marvel I still need to look at. After Spider-man, I'm not sure what Marvel has up their sleeve. For sure, back issues of Guardians of the Galaxy are heating up and a new Marvel Now edition will be hitting the shelves in time for the movie release. But I'm not sure what else to look for.

One other title that might be something to look at is The Strain from Dark Horse Comics. If you're not familiar, it was released in Nov. 2011. The original story was from a trilogy of NY Times bestselling books by film director Guillermo del Toro and writer Chuck Hogan and consists of The Strain, The Fall, and Night Eternal. It was adapted to comics by Eisner winner, David Lapham. It will be a series on FX in 2014.

With the recent announcement of Dr strange being made into a movie you can expect those back issues and first appearances to spike before long

Doubt it. Gerard butler is playing Dr. Strange.

East of West, Pretty Deadly will both be hot. Five Ghosts could be but unfortunately its a mini as of right now.

I don't remember seeing a solicitation for Pretty Deadly. I'll be looking for that one now though.
