Good question. I have been wondering this myself. Will it remain a sought after future key, or will it drop when the heat is off a little? I hesitated when they were going for $20, and now people are asking 50 and 75 now that the 2nd printing is out. I could see it holding at 20, but 75?

It will drop. High print run and lots of people who bought multiple copies. In a month, it'll be cover price when people need to dump them. Only the long haul speculators will hang onto them.

Batman 24 is doing the same thing, along with the Artgerm cover of Supergirl 12.

A few reasons that hulk 22 is priced as I is are a) it came as a bit of a surprise - a lot of ppl missed out on it and b)there are no variant covers!

I was lucky, didn't have this on my pull list but was following the story anyway and managed to get the last one at my LCS for cover.

Well...

1a) It is the first appearance of "Weapon X" as a team.
1b) Nobody currently cares because they are not Weapon H.

2a) It is the first appearance of Weapon H, a Wolverine/Hulk hybrid.
2b) People bought the issue for the hype this helped establish.

So based on the conclusion that they are marketing on the idea that Weapon H will fill in the gaps that both Logan and Banner left...

I have to also say "No." And add a "give it time" since this Marvel we are speaking about.

Well I'm sorry I didn't buy it newsstand so I can profit massively off this but I am not at all upset that I don't own the book lol. Give me a REAL new character and I go ape shit and sell my bottom favorite 20 books to have it. Nope, let's take a completely rampaging overpower character that is, with out sounding dumb, totally awesome, and gimmick off of our already gimmicked character NYX3! Totaly Awesome works as a description not a title marvel!

I hate being like this. I for one think you have to go through the bad to find the good, but that doesn't mean I will lie and say it's good right now!

I picked one up for $30...and then was able to snag most of the other issues I the story arc off the stand. I figured $30 was worth the risk in case this takes off like NYX #3...you never know. I like the covers so it's nice to hold onto for that reason.

I'm also interested in the story...so it's more than just an investment for me too.

Hoping my $30 is 9.6/9.8 quality...otherwise I paid waaaay too much.

As for Batman 24...need to see what happens still...dragging this out...not much longer though! I think she says "yes"....but that doesn't mean they're getting married. So my guess is that it'll drag on a year before any wedding plans are made...gotta get past the watchmen thing and Action 1000 first...then the wedding of the millennium will start being planned.

As for Supergirl 12...It's just a cover...comic that is only a cover and no content is rare to hold value unless its truly rare. Going to dump my copies this week to compensate for paying $30 for Hulk 22.

Batman proposed to Catwoman in Batman 24. There are A, Newstand A, and B cover first printings, then there are A cover 2nd (added Mary Me word balloon), 3rd (black and white) and 4th (red) printings plus an exclusive foil version from SDCC.

Batman 25 started "The War of Jokes and Riddles" which is a flashback, so we don't know what Selina's answer is yet.

Wait....but he's already married to Batwoman!!! and then had a child out of wedlock with Talia.

Damned - good to be rich to keep up with all those alimony/child support payments.

I think Hulk will be different. Unlike a few other books recently, there are some die hard Hulk fans out there, and he doesn't always get the respect he deserves.

Short term I believe the price will drop a bit.

Long term, say ten years, it will go up.

Those are just MY speculations.

Was it really a high print run? I thought it was relatively low, mostly because of the lack of variants. Where can I find print runs on comics? Curios to see how it compares to batman 24, or supergirl 12 or any other recent popular comic...

What makes you say this book had a high print run?

Whatever it is, you are mistaken.

The print run on TAH # 22 is reported to be 23,000.

Cominchron.com will verify the print run soon enough, if they haven't already.

23 K for a mainstream Marvel title, with no variant covers, is pretty low, not high.

The Weapon X storyline is one of the most popular Wolverine storylines that exists, it is mentioned, or has been a focal point ( in Wolverines solo films) in every X-men and Wolverine movie that has been made.

Wolverine made his debut in Hulk # 180-#182....remember how Wolverine fought the Hulk in that storyline?

The cover of Hulk #181 ringing any bells?

What do you see on the cover of Hulk #181?

Hulk fighting Wolverine.

Since Wolverine was inroduced into the MCU, Wolverine versus the Hulk has always been a widely popular theme with Marvel collectors.

To take a classic storyline like Weapon X, which is arguably the definitive basis for the modern age Wolverine, and to combine Wolverine's' introductory foe (ummm,the Hulk) into an amalgamation of the two characters ....you have something that fans of *both* characters have wondered about for years.

Now, you have Wolverine AND Hulk collectors who want the book.

Arbitrarily, call that a 200% increase in a fan base, between the 2 characters.That is a conservative figure, I will add.

23,000 copies...Supply vs. demand.

I slept on this book, I have 3 copies left.

I sold one via auction a few days ago, the others will be on their way to Sunny Florida for grading on Monday.

Despite my offer on this board, of $40 for raw NM to $55 for raw 9.6/9.8 candidates....PLUS the costs of boxed, insured USPS Priority shipping....NO ONE has offered to sell a single copy to me.

"

To be fair, I've been a fan of both of those characters for maybe as long as you've been alive and I've never "wondered" about that.

Aside from that I can't argue much with what you wrote above.
