I may jinx myself here, but Batman Beyond #37 A is doing pretty well already.

Yep! But don’t be surprised if there’s an 800% swing “ + or - “ ...by November 1st ( of this year :gossip: )

FINALLY :acclaim:got one of the books mentioned in this thread, from My typically ‘Sold Out in 5 seconds’ LCS!   Here is the previously mentioned Batman Beyond 37 - Cover A ( the better of A and B :insane: )

they’re coming out of the gate on eBay at about $20-$25 a pop.( I like my $3.99 a lot better :gossip: )

Not surprisingly, Bloodshot books are selling pretty fast the past 24 hours.

Went down to midtown comics Times Square tonight and they had both over A and B behind the counter, and were only allowing customers to choose one copy of ONE OR THE OTHER.

i don’t mind the 1 per customer limit they throw out once in a while, but I feel like not allowing me to buy a set of both covers is going a little far.

got a nice copy of cover A. Looked at about two dozen copies and all but the one I pulled had multiple color breaking spine dings. Unsurprisingly as I’m sure they’ve been gone through all day by grubby hands

Do you have a sub there?  Regular customers sure, casual flippers that don't buy anything other than the latest hot book....

While I like midtown comics and support them (alongside forbidden planet) I NEVER go there to get trending books

Damn - I’ll have to go back there today ( mid town grand central is the closest for me at work) I grabbed IH#25 yesterday ( the only current modern I get religiously now that the House/ powers of X mini series is done) and was debating if “ the Superman who laughs “ was worth my time

No, I don’t have a sub there. I do go somewhat regularly. I wasn’t looking for the book to flip, and even if someone is that’s why they limit to one per. Which is Totally fine. But I’ve never seen them not allow people to buy one of each A and B cover.

Yeah that’s odd - I did have a similar issue where at my LCS where Captain Marvel #8 came out with the Star storyline - they only gave out the Carnage cover - which turned out to be better or at least equal in hindsight

Yep. I dunno. I didn’t want cover B, so it didn’t impact my buying at all. *shrug*

It's possible they don't have a lot of extra copies around relative to who wants one.  It's better business for them to be able to have sales of 3 books to 3 customers than to 1 customers.  I'm sure they have their reasons.

Yes that’s fine. One copy of each cover per customer. I can’t agree with limiting customers to one OR the other on a cover price, non exclusive. This is midtown comics, they still had dozens of each behind the counter at 11 pm.

Ha, not surprised, if we didn't already know it was Bloodshot, there'd be absolutely no way to tell it was based on the Bloodshot comics property. Figures.

I have a feeling that he's not wearing a shirt like that throughout the movie.

Saw the trailer ... getting a slight “memento” Vibe from it , also having Guy Pierce as the villain may add to that :blush:

The comic Rai 0 went up 31 slots on gocollect.com popular book list and reduced $10.00 in value on the same list.

I'm not sure I posses the intellectual capacity to comprehend this market.

It’s not you, and it’s not the Market - it’s the way that particular site ( although I do love it ) displays the info it gathers — you have to put all the pieces together - they don’t do that part well
