121622A-1024x536 Trending Comics: ASM #129 Climbs the Hottest ComicsSome holy grails were picking up steam in the secondary market in this week’s Trending Comics.

The Punisher, Wolverine, even Deathstroke, Echo, and Knull showed their faces on the Hottest Comics rankings. It’s all about that live-action gossip, and the rumor mill is churning the waters at a blistering rate. Lately, things are so hot that it’s pushed even the highest-priced keys up the ladder. 

22. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #129 (+25)

When holy grails are selling in large quantities, it’s time to take notice. Here we have one of the most popular moving back into the top-25 Hottest Comics: ASM #129. If you don’t know why this issue is so amazing to own, why are you even on this website?

Seriously, it’s The Punisher’s first appearance never goes out of style, and the numerous theories and rumors of Frank Castle returning to the MCU are more of an incentive to get your hands on a copy.

34. INCREDIBLE HULK #181 (+36)

Wolverine was clawing away at the Hottest Comics once again. When you consider the ridiculous prices for a complete Hulk #181, it’s always notable when it climbs the rankings, especially by more than 30 spots.

Even if there’s no movie news to report, buyers always want Wolverine’s first appearance in practically any grade, with or without the Marvel Value Stamp. Still, it’s fun to see this one getting attention.

With James Gunn making huge waves across the DCU fandom this month, it’s no wonder that the rumors and speculation are at an all-time high. Despite our collective heartbreak about Henry Cavill not returning as Superman, it leaves every DC story and character wide open for a much-needed reboot.

In light of that, we have a new wave of Deathstroke movie rumors. It’s not the first time we’ve heard these, but it’s nonetheless tantalizing, hence the increased sales for New Teen Titans #2.

It’s been a few weeks since we talked about Venom #3, and buyers gave me a reason to put it on the list. It bounced back into the top-100 best sellers this time around despite there being virtually nothing happening with Knull as of late. Still, he’s much too interesting—and popular—to leave on the shelf for too long.

Will the God of the Symbiotes make it into live action? I expect he will at some point, but I can’t see it happening anytime soon. Let’s be honest, no one wants to see Sony ruin Knull by tossing him into yet another awful Venom movie.


Daredevil-9-194x300 Trending Comics: ASM #129 Climbs the Hottest Comics

With all the excitement over Daredevil: Born Again, the Echo talk has been relegated to background noise. However, this could be a sign that buyers are beginning to renew their interest in the character.

We’ve known since last year that Daredevil will be part of her show, and that should be a segue into the DD revival. Odds are, we will see her cross between both series, and that will inevitably raise her collecting appeal.

I believe ” Holy Grails” are selling because the comic book market is soft and prices are dropping like boat anchors. Its a buyers market.
