I have 3 cases pre-ordered. It looks like the artists did a great job based on the previews.

Like with the DC 52 set, I'll probably stick to single sketches that catch my eye.

It looks like the quality of sketches is higher than for the DC52 set, so I want to buy a case. However, I will probably wait until I see some actual breaks to pick up a case. But the previews on Cryptozoic's facebook page look great!

Along with sets and inserts.

Good luck to all ordering this one. While CZ has sone a great job with their sets, the DC brand just does not sell all that well. That is the ONLY reason that I am staying away as some of the new artists' work is quite nice.

Cards look great can't wait for it, and Batman sells better than the 1000 different DC characters you can get I'll bet you that.

I'm bumping this as the release is coming up. Have you guys seen any of the preview sketches/redemptions? I'm sorry no original art pages were offered this time around. Still looks fun tho.

I saw some of your sketches posted on scoundrel and your hard work payed off, they look awesome.

Many of the artist as well started posted there sketches on scoundrel and the quality does look like they are putting in max effort.

Thank you, the scanner I used sucked and the quality of the cards look shoddy. Plus the scans you see from me are not the final product. If my signature is not on the artwork it was an in process scan.

I saw the Glebes' sketches, and they look amazing. Plus it's amazing that they did 50 sketches, since they only did 20 for the DC New 52. I wonder how many cases Cryptozoic is making, think you might hit a Glebe 1 in every 5 or 10 cases?

Wow, those are incredible. They're probably doing like 700 cases, which would still make it like 1 in 14 cases tho. This set does look 100000000 times better than DC tho.

Check their pre-sells, they have both boxes and cases available. Although I would suggest comparing prices to make sure you are getting a decent price.

I would expect Batman cases to sell out before DC New 52 When it comes to superhero popularity Batman may be #1. I base this on the number of movies, cartoons, tv shows, etc... Superman, Spider-Man, X-Men, Avengers... they are all very popular but I think Batman wins the gold metal and I think that will show up in sales for these cards.

For me, there is just too much going on right now in non-sports cards. I may pick up some Batman if they are still around in February, but I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't.

The sketches look AWESOME and I expect them to get better with each Cryptozoic sketch. I get the impression that the artists prefer working with them over some of the competition. But maybe that will fade with time....

I've got a case on the way when they release. I know that previews are going to be the best examples of the artwork, but this one feels pretty good overall.

I am still busting DC New 52 cases as I find them cheap. I am going after one card from every artist. Dang Acar will be the death of me. I have many of the rarer artists already pulled.

Just bought 2 boxes, stuff looks nice, and Batman characters are all pretty cool. Previews look nice too, crossing my fingers on this one!
