She-Hulk, Angela, and Lobo were on the shopping lists for many collectors in the past 30 days. It’s time for your Trending Comics fix!
The Hottest Comics rank the top 100 single issues based on sales volume. Here at GoCollect, we take a closer look at the last 30 days’ worth of transactions. While it is easy to get lost in the flashy numbers and the big climbers, it is to your advantage to take a closer look at the budding trends to help you stay ahead of the curve.
15. SAVAGE SHE-HULK #1 (+9)
With so much happening in the comic world this week, She-Hulk may have gotten lost in the shuffle.
Marvel revealed the first teaser for the company’s first legal comedy, and audiences got a glimpse of the green-skinned, superpowered attorney. The trouble was that there was tough competition for attention.
Still, buyers were on the hunt for that first appearance of Jennifer (definitely not Jessica) Walters, and it is on its way into the top 10.
36. SPAWN #9 (+32)
Buyers had Angela on their minds over the past month. Her first appearance in Image Comics’ Spawn #9 made a splash, gaining more than 30 spots to crack the top 50.
As the legend goes, Angela was originally created by prolific author and comic writer Neil Gaiman. After he and Todd McFarlane settled their legal dispute over the character’s ownership, Gaiman sold the rights to Marvel.
Now the wait is on for Angela to appear in the MCU, and that may be why collectors were on the hunt for her debut.
45. OMEGA MEN #3 (+34)
Sooner or later, Lobo will become a star in the DCEU. The proverbial writing is on the wall. The market has been shifting his way for years.
After the splash that Deadpool and his R-rated humor have made for Marvel, not to mention this year’s The Suicide Squad, the time is right for “the Main Man” to come to the big screen.
That potential will keep buyers on top of his first appearance in Omega Men #3.
66. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #121 (NEW TO TOP 00)
There’s a new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer that is pushing all the right buttons.
One key moment shows MJ falling in slow motion, which is clearly meant to conjure memories of Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy from Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Where did that infamous death scene originate? ASM #121, which explains why it made a sudden appearance inside the top 100 this time around.
84. PUNISHER #1 (NEW TO TOP 100)
Here is a surprise entrant into this week’s top 100 and trending comics list: the Punisher’s first comic in an ongoing series. His first limited series premiere is normally the bigger seller, so it is refreshing to see the 1987 Punisher #1 get a piece of the spotlight.
What could be the reason behind its surge over the past month? The hot gossip is that the upcoming Echo series on Disney+ will serve as a finale to Netflix’s Daredevil. While nothing has been made official about DD, that could spawn new rumors of Frank Castle making his live-action return as well, not that there hasn’t been plenty of talk of a Punisher return already.
