2018 MARKET UPDATE: NO SIGN OF TASKMASTER IN THE MARVEL CU
Another year has passed without any news of Taskmaster appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Until there is concrete news, this 1980 book will continue to be a speculative purchase, which is why it's so low in the 100 Hot Comics list.
2017 MARKET UPDATE:
You can sum this book up like this: go high grade, or go home.
Practically every grade below CGC 9.6 is stone cold. Meanwhile, 96 is holding its own, and 9.8 is still on the rise.
The rapid rise in value of this book can be attributed to strong movie rumors.
With the Deadpool movie in theaters, and a sequel confirmed to star Cable, the value of New Mutants #98 is assured, and lesser characters, heroes and villains who might appear in that movie are being speculated on.
Taskmaster is one of the most likely to feature.
