I think the "cart" button is in white font and very difficult to see.

Wow! I'm so glad I didn't miss this one. I was certain I would have to skip it, but was able to pick up a red book. Very excited!!

50 blue didn't seem like a lot but now that they are still for sale I am beginning to wonder about this. $400 and $125 is a heck of a lot of money.

Even though there are quite a few really great artists, I'm not certain I'm willing to pay over $100 for a sketch card from them (with a few exceptions, like NAR!). I don't think they were priced to flip. I think the chances of pulling a card you can sell for significantly more than you paid is quite a gamble. I assume the reason they haven't sold out yet is because people didn't buy them by the case with the intention of flipping them.

I think hardcore Mars Attacks fans will be really happy with their purchase. Everybody else is taking a pretty serious gamble.

I agree with Spider. These will be great for collectors. The chance at a super sketch and then the very nice book that goes with it?? Easy decision. BUT not so sure on those who think they'll just easily flip.

I agree with you guys saying these aren't priced to flip. I think that's a good thing too.

Well, they *are* $400 each... which isn't an insignificant amount of money.

EXACTLY! And its 4 sketches from the same artist. I think the $125s will sell out sooner even though there are much more of those.

I just hope at least one of them sells out soon lol. I mean who cares if they are flippable the demand for them just isn't there if they are this limited and have yet to sell out...Sure the price point is high but there are probably a lot of mars attacks collectors that have pretty large bank accounts and deep pockets

Not to mention they also did the through email presell with these...and still they aren't gone...

Unless you are trying to flip them... I don't understand the concern about them selling out.

For these high priced items, a lot of people wait until they release. They want to see other people's breaks to increase their confidence in spending that amount, or they are hoping it will go on sale or something and they'll be able to get it a little cheaper than the pre-sale price.

I hope these stay available. I'm dying to pick up a blue book on top of the red book I've go coming. I really like John Layman's writing. Chew is one of the few comics I still read, and this Mars Attacks is going to be bad ass.

I think they'd want to pack that one out or you guys who bought in might get angry

I've been wondering about that. The don't have Mr. Dastick listed as an artist for the red books, only the blue books with 4 cards puzzles. What are they planning on doing with all those other solo sketches? Maybe they will just mail them directly to me for the sad loss of my Mars Attacks AP by Ted

I don't believe that every single blue book is a 4 card puzzle.
