Batman Leads Off the CBCS Hot List
After a few weeks off, not by design mind you, we’re back with a new CBCS Hot List. If you recall, the last two lists have been very Marvel-heavy. However, this time around we have some variety, and that’s a good thing. So, without further ado, let get started with book number one.
Batman #475 – June 1992
We’re excited to see Batman #475 here in the top spot on this week’s CBCS Hot List. This book saw a sales increase of over 2800% with the news that Renee Montoya was announced for season three of Batwoman. Montoya, who goes on to become the second question, makes her first appearance in this otherwise forgotten book from the ’90s.
Faust #1 – January 1989
Here we are at the number two spot on the list, and still no Marvel. We did it. Well, kind of. Faust #1 lands here at the second spot with a strong push from the news that an animated series is in the works. In fact, this David Quinn/Tim Vigil series jumped over 2300%. I honestly know nothing about this series, but it looks gory, so I’m sure the kids will eat it up.
Avengers: The Terminatrix Objective #1 – September 1993
Our run of non-Marvel books had to come to an end sometime, and here it is. With a sales increase of nearly 1500%, Avengers: The Terminatrix Objective #1 lands in our third spot this week. Readers will find the first appearance of Alioth, the end all be all of the Timespan, on the pages of this book. Alioth appeared in episode five of Disney+’s Loki, hence the heat up. Oh, and as my guy Joker would say, “Dope Cover”.
Amazing Spider-Man #656
So, this is a first for me, but I’m sure it’s nothing new. Here in the fourth spot on the list is Amazing Spider-Man #656, which jumped almost 1200%. Why you may ask? Well, toys. Yes, that’s right, toys. Long story short, this book features the debut of Parker’s MKII armor, which, get this, is even more bulletproof than the MKI armor???? Either way, flippers noticed that it resembled the design on the toys, and there was a sales increase. Good job comic book world. Good job.
Avengers #2 – February 2017
The final book on this week’s CBCS Hot List is Avengers #2. The Alex Ross cover gives depicts many different versions of the next Marvel Big Bad. As Kang draws ever nearer in the MCU this cover is a perfect tease for what may be on the horizon. With a sales jump of over 1100%, I would say that everyone is preparing for his arrival.
