Why not take a small $50 risk? Worst case you can cash out and get your money back. Best case these end up being $200 apiece since they are about as limited as it gets. I sincerely doubt you will have trouble getting the $25 apiece to break even back if it doesn't take off.

Thanks for the heads up, BBT. I sat on this for a day hoping it would sell out so I wouldn't have to spend $50, but finally pulled the trigger just now (yes, I know that it not selling out fast means it's not as great a deal, but I just couldn't help myself). This cover is pretty cool, and regardless or not of whether it appreciates in value I think it's a great pickup.

I usually just lurk this forum (but only b/c I don't usually add a lot of value and don't like to randomly post just to 'hear myself talk') but needed to come out of my shell to say thank you to you and all the other guys that make this forum a great place to hang out!

Alright, I finally went ahead and grabbed my 2 copies. I know there are a lot of Katie Cook fans so the more I thought about it (and reading some posts from you guys) the more it made sense. Didn't want to be kicking myself if they caught fire!

I wouldn't say $85 is too low. Just wait until you guys flood the market. That one sold but was also the only one available. It is a zero risk situation though as comicsbooksgo said "I sincerely doubt you will have trouble getting the $25 apiece to break even back if it doesn't take off." Ultimately I think it's a great deal to get a copy for your PC and sell the other to cover the total cost. Or just be the first one to list.

Also just an fyi, packers04, it was 500 print run not 400. Just because 100 was given to creators doesn't mean that zero of those are on the market. Not meant in a passive aggressive way, just saying.

The way I see it the reason why it hasn't sold out yet is because Oni changed their rules. It used to be 2 per customer and they changed it to 2 per order and address so they will cancel any other orders. Cutting down on multiple orders will take longer for the 400 supply to run out. This book is a good bet for 20 and I heard Oni's table at stumptown had better condition ones than at jones table.

At the convention they actually were telling people it was only 400. I just saw on the website that it was different so in the future if I get more I'll change it to 500.

The fact that they are still in stock on the Oni site, tells me that I should get in while the gettings good.

And don't get me wrong $20 is the best deal you will ever see for this book. It is very likely the cheapest it will ever be. If you want a copy for your PC you should 100000% get it now.

Got mine as well. Both had dings and nicks on the bottom left spine corner to!

They were packaged better thought not just lose in the box.

Looks like we ate the bear this time, sounds like Indy got some pretty good copies. I'm hoping to get mine signed someday with a big stack of pony books.

It was pretty solid packaging, must've happened before then.

Got mine today. Each book was packed in its own bag and board sealed inside a bubble mailer in a box. I'd say one is 9.8 worthy while the other has a small spine tick. I'm pretty happy with the delivery.
