That is for the normal cover. Ratio on the sketch is much lower.

That's the entire print run including all variants. Sketch print run should be anywhere from 3K-4K depending on if it was 1:3 or 1:4

G-mart was up last night....usually they start at cover, and go up from there. But not on Uber, they started right at those prices.....

I just finish reading it and i must say this title might not be for everyone.

The material is dense and the excessive blood might turn some off.

Half the copies are probably owned by CGC board members. Everyone i know didnt order just the regular covers, but multiples of all the covers.
Its crazy to think what the print run of #1 and 2 will be.

So, the wrap cover was a 1:1 variant (meaning, no more rare than the 'regual' cover)?

Ditto, sometimes I think they put out one or two of the "hot" titles at a time.

I'm almost sure of it.

My shop had all but the Sketch, so I got a Wraparound cover as my reader.

Nobody asked. I typically only do books you guys want to get graded.

I have some Sketch Variants coming in, I could always set one up for those, but I don't have many coming in. If anyone would be interested, PM me and I'll get one setup.

Any reviews so far?

I have seen plenty for Polarity #1 but surprising very little on Uber.

I was confused reading this...it jumped all over the place and I had to re-read a lot of the pages just to get the storyline. Good story just very long-winded!

What I've read so far is a bit disjointed. Hopefully it makes more sense over the long run, but it seems like they tried to cram too much into the first issue, but I'm not done with it yet.

Fully agree with the comments.
That was what I mean when the I say the story is dense. You can't just finish in one sitting as there are so many references and details that might confuse the reader.

I am not sure if this type of material will be appreciated by most.

sorry to be negative seeing as how im the one that started this thread but i have to be honest. I just read issue 0 and it didnt impress. The art was ok but the story was blah. Maybe it will get beter maybe it wont.

I wasn't blown away by #0. I'll try #1 when it hits, but I hope it gets better. The Nurse/Doctor Lady/Whaterver is a bitch.
