Pro-tip: PayPal has a MasterCard you can get linked to your account for free. Helps in situations like that.

I have one and use it as a credit card or a debt. Funds are taken out of my account.

I hesitated for quite a while as USD50 for 2 copies seems expensive.

Why do u guys have so much confidence in this variant?
Are baby variants doing well in general?

I'm getting the issue cuz I'm a Katie Cook fan. It's cheaper then trying to get one of her sketch cards from various products.

First of all it's KATIE COOK. I'm a big fan of hers, and on top of that it's a growing title with limit print run, especially on this variant, only 400 to the General public, and we can only get 2 each.. If/when this book takes off, these variants will be highly sought after.. Plus, it's a great series and I don't mind supporting it.

This reason swaps it for me. I liked the series and I just want to own all the covers

Now, to buy the 2nd print of issue 2. Killer cover as well.

I just love the story so much.

I like this cover because it is almost a crossover of mlp with helheim plus a limited print run is just really awesome

Man only 400 copies available to the public. Talk about rare! Hopefully they arrive in decent shape from Oni Press for everyone.

still haven't pulled the trigger on this. 50 bucks is steep with no track record on this comic. i also find it suspect that this has been shared both here and on cgc, and the lurkers haven't gutted stock of this supposedly super limited to 400 print run yet. to me this says either one of two things.

#1- lurkers are also spooked by the high price tag, and the fact that they don't know if this is a flippable comic, so it isn't selling out instantly.

or #2 which is far more nefarious. that this print run is actually higher than the 400 they are reporting on the website.

either way something about this is just throwing me off and keeping me away, and i'm not a big fan of this art to just pick up for pc.

just my 2 cents.

I bought one..I like the cover..But like you Burt I am leary about spending 30.00 on one comic.. I could buy hoax hunters 0,1 for that online

I think it's still there because of the limit. It's not like anybody could buy 20 copies of each and finish the supply right away


It's a nice crossover variant and when this is officially announced to be ongoing, the rest is history... but hey..it's just me..

Just really love the story and art and will support it personally

I think the price is spooking a lot of folks. You can read the reactions here and in CGC. USD30 or USD25 is a bit too much for a variant. The fact that you can order 2 means most flippers can't make money off in volume. So, risking USD50 for a quick turnaround of maybe USD10 to USD20 isn't that attractive.

Those who are buying it now probably aren't flippers. Either long term investors or real fans.

The worst part is you figure after buying 1 or 2, and getting them graded..Hoping for a 9.8 your in already with shipping about 92.00...Hopefully it doesn't dump like nwm graded did..I just got a 9.8 SS #1 for under 80.00..

Yeah, I put 2 of these in my cart yesterday but still haven't checked out. I just keep thinking of the Silver Age books I could put that money towards. Also, I think Katie Cook does great work but I'm not a fan of the style either so it's not something I'd normally grab for the PC.

Once it's announced as an on going I bet it will be flipable in the 40 ish range. I really don't think that guy will get the 84 he is asking.

So an investment of 50 for a personal copy and a copy to sell isn't bad.

Just my 2 cents
