You take them to conventions and have artists do unique drawings on them, get them signed and graded by CGC. Those go for BIG BUCKS.. just look on ebay for completed sales.

And yes, give it a few months and those will go for $10 a pop.. at least.

Indy, when you click on the "invoice" link in your order history page, does the invoice read

"SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1 LIMITED EDITION COMIX EXC CVR - LIMIT 2 PER PERSON @ 4.95 each" under the item description?

I don't remember seeing this earlier, but then again I wasn't paying close enough attention.

Thanks!

It does now, they could have changed the database after orders though and it would show up that way. My QTY still says 7

Thanks. Mine still says 5, so fingers crossed. I got in pretty early, but possibly after they left for the day. Still says payment pending.

The actual comic you view to order from now says Limit 2 per person, it didn't say that when I ordered, so perhaps they're going to honor any sales before they did that. Crossing my fingers they do.

The status on mine now says: Payment Collected

I see that now. Hopefully they do. I think they cancelled the one order for over 100. Your order may have shipped. I found this in their faq section...

Q. When does my credit card get charged for the items I have purchased?

A. We only charge credit cards on dispatch of goods unless you have asked us to debit the card each week you order your imports from us.

Question// Out of all the Superior Variants, which do you guys think is best? (Graham has images for all of em if anyone is curious)

I seriously think that the Adi Variant is the best hands down (imo). Now the next question is, which would be the best to flip?

This is from the CGC boated regarding the LSCC variant.

. Hi Guys. Just popped in to hopefully clarify the situation regarding the Limited Edition Comix/LSCC Superior Spider Man 1 variant.

This is uncharted territory for us, having never done this before and although we thought demand would be strong, it has been a bit of a shock to see the extent of interest this has generated, due in no small part to the superb job Adi Granov did with the art on this cover.

here are some faq type answers;

1. All orders placed prior to 12.00am yesterday (midnight) G.M.T. will be honoured in full.
2. All orders after that will be for 2 copies per customer and orders for larger quantities will be auto cancelled.
3. All books will be bagged and boarded and sent in a stiff comic book mailer.
4. You should email Midtown for details of availability and price from them, that is strictly a matter for them.
5. We intend to have a minimum of 1,000 copies available at LSCC for customers to buy exclusively at our booth.
6. Dan Slott & Adi Granov will sign copies for no extra charge exclusively at our booth.

I hope that answers most of your questions. Feel free to pm me if you do not see your query answered above and thanks for your interest.

Nice!! I try not to sell books before I have them in hand, but I'm thinking of grading my sketch if it's worthy.

Same here, there is NO way I can pre-sell comics because I am very condition sensitive whether buying for myself or to resell.

Yes, comic buyers, as we should know by ourselves, are very picky in regards to condition, the last thing I want to deal with are charge backs and re-shipping. I guess I'm lazy too.

Yeah, and if you don't mind doing that, it's fine, I just don't like spending the time unless I have to.

Well I recently pre-sold a bunch of baby variants and my large shipment was damaged. I couldn't send the books out and it took a long time to get an agreement with my distributor, so in the mean time I had to buy the books again to send out, so it ended up costing me a lot of money, so that's why I no longer pre-sell on books, I'd much rather wait, so would my wallet

Limited Edition Comix just posted an update on Facebook

"UPDATE : Superior Spider-man #1 Limited Edition Comix Exc cover

OK, right then... for those people who ordered over 2 copies via the website we are now going thru an cancelling the orders. 25 here, 50 there and another order for 75! We'd LOVE to take your money but seriously -- it's LIMIT 2! If you're in the USA you can get them from Midtown Comics next week. I'm sure they have enough!"


Man I wonder if they're sticking to their word about orders placed today with the limit of two will be cancelled?

1. All orders placed prior to 12.00am yesterday 1/4/13 (midnight) G.M.T. will be honoured in full. (Note, London is 6-7 hrs ahead of us, so that would have been around 6pm our time EST)
2. All orders after that will be for 2 copies per customer and orders for larger quantities will be auto cancelled.
