The last few weeks there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Wolverine / Hulk Batch H story line. The first print copies of the books appear to have been under ordered by retailers resulting in most of the books selling for above cover. Most of the Totally Awesome Hulk title cross-over books are currently selling for $10 to $15.
We’ve already been introduced to the “beta” version of the Hulk / Wolverine mash up character but in this weeks issue of the new Hulk comic , Totally Awesome Hulk #22, we see the “alpha”. One spoiler I will reveal is that the Beta version (as predicted) dies and the Alpha versions takes over. This is the Alpha’s first appearance and will be regarded as the first appearance of the Batch H Character. Over the last few days this book has been selling for $8 to $15, the book is sold out at diamond and can currently be found on ebay for $10. I’ve read the issue and It looks like Marvel is planning to revisit this character in future Totally Awesome Hulk – expanding the story line and this character, which means this is a book to be buying and holding onto.
Totally Awesome Hulk #22 is not a book you want to be sleeping on.
Another book that came out last week heating up. This book was overshadowed by the TMNT. Did the purple mutant turtle, Donatello die? Is he coming back? as the discussion grew and people started examining preview snippets, interviews with the creative team have not resulted in definitive answers. More on that later.
Hulk #13 has sold out at diamond and a second print is imminent. The book guest-stars Deadpool and for some reason caught retailers by surprise, largely because the Marvel Now Hulk series doesn’t sell in droves and isn’t a book most comic readers look for. This book has a relatively low print run when compared to other marvel titles from last week. This was first pointed out by Simon Payne on Google + (IN JANUARY)
Hulk #13 has been selling for $7 to $10 and still has some potential to grow. Its a pretty cool Deadpool Cover. Hulk #14 will finish the Deadpool part of the storyline, but based on what happens in that book it could drive up the price of issue 13.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 seems to keep going up. With Cover A and B hitting $25 and the 1:10 variant steadily selling for $100, Donatello, dead or live, this book is on fire. There is a variant cover being released at the TriCon Comic Con in West Virginia. The book is first come first served with VIP ticket holders getting first crack at the opportunity to buy the books. They seem to be preselling for $40 and will be offered at the convention for $10. If you’re within transit distance, this is a show to check out.
