They're $3.99 cover price. Just bring a few friends with you and have them each buy a copy too.

Oh I planned on it But the guy likes me...and owes me for overcharging on a box I bought a while back, so I'm sure he will hook me up.

just checked the site and the status is shipping in process for my order, you would have got the confirmation the day or day after you ordered

Just checked that. Mine says shipping in process. So hopefully I get it by the weekend. I'm like 20 min away from them, but its media mail, so who knows how long it will take...

Default Well

Well, Midtown has cancelled orders for Spiderman Obama Variant for people who tried to order more then 1. It still says shipping in process but money has been reversed and refunded. You will still get your 1 copy but, I guess they really were cracking down on poeple trying to order more then 1.

Last ebay sales:

59.95-89.00

Looks like average is in the $70's

Getting hotter though with the ones ending shortly closer to $100.

Man, that's unreal. When i went to the newest listings I noticed that more and more of the second print run editions are being listed. You guys think the first run will get a little scarce in a couple of weeks? Could be good.

Mine is also showing shipped. Hope this shows up soon as this could be the easiest $$ I've made all year. I think the 1st editions will hold their value, but obviously right now this is a high ticket item. I can't see prices staying this high, but even if I can get 75 for it I'll be very happy. I'm just not selling it until its in my hand.

Had one end today on feebay, final total $81.99

This was a one day auction, started at .99cents. And here's another I put up yesterday that has both the regular cover and the variant, it's up to $51 so far and ends in a few hours.

Here is a good question? Are most of these Direct Issues or News Stand issues????? If they have a barcode on them DON'T BID ON THEM!!! You can tell the difference easily. Direct Issues usually have a picture in the "barcode" area. Just an FYI!

Hey has anyone not had theirs shipped yet? I chose ups ground and have heard nothing about it yet. I ordered mine last week, and even emailed them, and have not heard back. Just wondering if I am alone.

As said above, check their site. I didn't receive email notification that it shipped, but my order status shows that it shipped on their site.

Wow. I just thought that they sent out an email like Blowout does. I must be very lazy. Found it was shipped. I feel quite dumb now. Thanks guys.

Threw mine up on eBay for $100 to see what happens. Amazing what this one comic is going for - even with the Obama hype factor. Good luck all.
