If anything, mass producing the second print and not increasing the print run of the first print will only serve to increase the value of the first print even more.

And why are people paying between $40-$102 on ebay now when that one guy is selling 100 of them for $29.99 each? Crazy.

Even though I called and was told it was o.k. to order separately I had my other orders cancelled. It was worth a shot. The only shame of it was I ordered two of them for friends. Oh well, can't win them all.

Default Sales

Well I have not sold any yet but going form the past sales will see how these sell down the road. The books can easily be picked up for 29-35 on ebay. There are many not getting any bids and those are people that don't have comics or comic in there user name. I gues if you don't have comic or comics in your name there getting no bids..

Yeah, I got my confirmation emails. The demand may pick up again tomorrow once they officially hit newsstands, even though not many, if any variant 1st prints, will actually hit a comic store.

1st printing variant has a blue background on cover, 2nd printing has a yellow background.

I presold 5 copies for $200 and a couple issues for around $30 each.. doing pretty well so far. I have 5 left. Might get one or two graded.

I called my LCS and asked again if he was getting any in and he put name in for one copy at. I'm getting it for cover price. I'm hoping that he'll have extras and I'll snag those too. Cover price is usually $3.....I may get my discount of the cover price as well......

No email from Midtown yet for me. But my LCS will have them for sale tomorrow, with a limit of 1 per person. I'm going to try and snag a few of them when I get there though. Think they are selling them at around $4 each.
