Happy #1
 
[URL="http://www.midtowncomics.com/store/dp.asp?PRID=Happy+%231+Variant+Mike+All_1231708"]Midtown now has it available for order[/URL], including the [url=http://i934.photobucket.com/albums/ad181/rwaring11/Happy_1_Variant_zpsd39e4dcf.jpg]variant cover[/URL]!! This could be a hit. Grant Morrison rules.

Get in on one or two if you can. Might be a great story!

Note, it is a 4 book mini series, but don't think for a second mini-series don't do well in aftermarket sales. Most recently 2nd printings of Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe are [URL="http://www.ebay.com/itm/sketch-variant-set-DEADPOOL-KILLS-THE-MARVEL-UNIVERSE-1-2-3-4-J-SCOTT-CAMPBELL-/130748534164?pt=US_Comic_Books&hash=item1e71384d94"]selling for $50.00[/URL], FOR 2nd Prints! (Granted, he's a more popular character, but the print run on this Image title should be much lower)

I have plenty of they Happy #1 Variants on Pre-Order so if you want one graded, I'll be sending in an order, just PM me if you want to get in on it.

IndySportsCards 09-21-2012 01:17 PM

Happy #1 Variant SOLD OUT at Midtown. They still have some regular issue #1's though.

Scrogg27 09-21-2012 01:31 PM

Looks like I forgot to add to my cart. Hopefully my Lcs has them. Anybody have an idea what the variant cover will look like.

They've keep a closed lid on it. As soon as I find out I'll post it here.

There's also a super exclusive Morrisoncon variant only available at Morrisoncon in Vegas.

Scrogg27 09-21-2012 02:07 PM

Even though super exclusive sounds better for sale purposes, I really like that first variant.

Same here, it looks funny and HAPPY! The 2nd looks more disturbing and creepy.

mma138 09-21-2012 05:31 PM

i prefer the creepy one

[QUOTE=mma138;3352897]i prefer the creepy one[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I'm thinking it's going be a pretty twisted story. Can't wait to read it next week!

JWMcComas 09-22-2012 06:04 PM

it must be pretty exclusive...Morrisoncon is super pricey to even get in to. if i recall its like $500 to attend or something staunch like that

All this talk about Grant and I haven’t mentioned the flawless pencils of Darick Robertson, who shows that whatever issues prevented him from working on The Boysare put to bed and he’s in fighting form, no, actually, he’s past fighting form, he’s in nation conquering form. From trashed Santa’s to stoned serial killers to bloody hitman to flying, talking blue horses, Robertson is drawing with the versatility and passion of an artist who’s still out to make a name for himself. He’s drawing like he hasn’t already done pencils on ground-breaking, genre defining comics. He’s drawing like an artist who’s had all the rest he needs and is now back and ready to work. And are we ever ready to have him back.

Don't forget, I'll be sending in a Happy #1 variant or regular cover (up to you, same price!) Grading Order if you want to get in on it, LMK soon.

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 12:41 PM

Okay, these are in hand and going out today for grading. If you still want in on one graded, PM me by 5pm today otherwise this order is shipping out to CGC.

[URL="http://ifanboy.com/articles/advance-review-happy-1-spoiler-free/"]Happy #1 Review (Spoiler Free)[/URL]

After reading an advance copy of Happy #1, I questioned my own snap judgement as to just how good it was. This crime noir meets cartoon animals story is like a sinister version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. Is that a good thing? After reading this a second and a third time, I can definitively say yes, yes this is.

----

Indy " I have not read it yet, dying to read it though, but don't dare open any of these copies as they're going in for grading. I have a reading copy coming in from Midtown "

FWIW, my comic shop owner said the comic was "Brilliant" as did the employee working there.. They're not just trying to sell comics either, they always give me brutally honest opinions on new books, if it sucks, they'll tell me it sucks.

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 01:32 PM

FYI Guys (and gals) Happy #1 sold out at the distributor level!!

Scrogg27 09-26-2012 01:55 PM

After missing out on the midtown order, I was able to get 3 copies of each at my LCS. Had to get there when the doors opened but was worth the trip.

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 02:01 PM

I only have 1 Happy #1 Variant left that I can send in on this order today. I have more on pre-order but they won't be in my hands until next week.

I might have to cruise onto the other side of town and see if they have any grade-able copies left.

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 03:17 PM

Pending a few payments coming in, I am currently OUT of Happy #1 Variants.

I do have more on pre-order coming in next week, but this order will be going out this afternoon and I'll start up a Happy #1 Grading thread for you all to track your order and status.

Good luck to everyone on grades! These are very sharp books with no spine flaws, or noticeable tear spots, etc.. and nice crispy corners.

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 03:46 PM

Ran back to the comic store to get me a reading copy, just read it, and love it. The last panel was awesome! I LOL'd..

IndySportsCards 09-26-2012 10:43 PM

[URL="http://deerinthexenonarclights.com/2012/09/26/happy-1/"]I just finished reading said first issue[/URL] and I have to say… how the hell is Grant Morrison popular as a writer? This book is everything that he’s ever been accused of come to life: it’s creepy, crazy and confusing and I loved it.

packers04 09-26-2012 11:35 PM

Just about to order it from TFAW now. That's the one nice thing about having one close. I can have it shipped to my lcs without having to pay a cent for shipping and plus I pay below cover price. Can't wait to read! Thanks

IndySportsCards 09-27-2012 01:30 AM

The Variant is already hitting [URL="http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?_sop=1&_sacat=0&_nkw=happy+%231+variant&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc"]$13 on Feebay[/URL]
