Default Book to pickup next week: Catwoman #13

This week we saw the low print run, under-ordered Batgirl #13 sell out in shops almost immediately. Catwoman #13 is already sold out at the distributor level, and I think it's a good book to flip if you want to make a few bucks in the next few months. This is another book that's part of the Prelude to "Death in the Family" and if you find it, or a couple of them, GET them! Just look at BatGirl #13 completed sales on Ebay and the book is only 1 day old. Batman fans who MUST HAVE the entire span of books for this series will want this book.

Note: I DO NOT think this is a book worthy of grading unless you plan on doing the entire series. Imagine what a Death in the Family 9.8 set would go for?! All books in 9.8.. now THAT would be an accomplishment. Then again, if someone is buying them to build a set, then yes, it would be a good one to grade.. I take that back.. I don't think Batgirl on it's own is worthy of grading due to the smaller fan base, but as part of this storyline, could be worthy.. it's a toss up, depends on your intentions of aftermarket.. I myself will not be grading my copies.. I don't think.

Just in case my shop doesn't get enough, I just ordered a few from Midtown. I JUST WENT back to get the link for you guys and guess what? IT'S SOLD OUT!

Wish I would have stocked up, but I just got a couple.

Interesting: It's the ONLY regular series comic that's sold out so far. Demand must be pretty high, which is a good thing. Get it in your Local Comic Shops next week if they get any.

Graham Crackers has them but they limit you to 1
Comic Oasis Sold Out!

Buy them at cover,read them,then sell them IMO
Spoke with a die-hard DC fan and he says "Seems like another early zerg like Blackest/Lightest,with a floundering flop months later"
I mean...it's Comic books. No one dies and stays dead who is key,so no matter how raw it gets, someone will be back alive or replaced by a cousin's niece's uncle's roommate

if it's about flipping,ride it while ya can. Me...I assumed the run would be big,Joker always draws numbers,but I think I will stick with Silver/Gold/Bronze and issues that I think have a good story and buy them just for the story.

I still say Happy is a shitty story and stand by that Regardless of what Ex-Rapper wants to make a movie of it ;P

The story in batman 13 was great. My favorite read so far this year. I picked up two of that one as well. I'd like to make two sets. I can't wait for the rest. Uncanny avengers was a great read too

I agree. This is the most insane I've ever seen the joker. He's quite terrifying and the cliffhanger makes me want to pick up #14 asap!

Wow...they are out everywhere!!

I found them at forbidden plant. I bit the bullet and am hoping they get shipped ok. At 1.95E a piece worth a shot.

I'm not convinced because from all the comic forums I visited everyone is talking about picking up Catwoman #13. I would suspect the orders will be easily filled and if anything there will be a bump in price for a day or two and then it will flatline. Just my 2 cents though.

Sales Numbers from last month would indicated that Batgirl and Catwoman are not nearly printed in the same quantity as Batman. The people who want the entire series with all crossover titles are what are gonna drive up value on the shorter printed Catwoman and Batgirl. As you can see from last months print runs, those two books are generally less available, and with this event and demand, they will be tougher to find. Catwoman is even less popular than Batgirl. So it would seem it'll be tough for even 1/3rd of the regular Batman readers to find the entire series with all crossover books, unless they up'd the print run, but from what I've heard from Retailers, Catwoman and Batgirl were not ordered heavily.

September 2012 Sales
Batman - 156,561
Batgirl - 50,441
Catwoman - 39,117
