Regular cover or 1:100?

 

both.. for some reason multiple sellers are placing them in lots

There are 7 variants not including the 1:100 and a 1 per store foil of the Spawn cover.

This is why.

No description available.

Ellie is holding a different comic in each one and they have varying ratios from 1:4, 1:8, and 1:25.

There is 5 covers I want of this now.  The standard Spawn cover, the Walking Dead cover, the Spawn comic cover, the Crossover comic cover and the foil.

We shall see what I can find at the LCS tomorrow..... :foryou:

They did something similar with #1, there was a roughly 1:10 variant mixed into the regular cover that the person was holding a different cover of the same comic.

That Walking Dead is especially cool because the back cover of Issue 1 was the cover of Issue 2 👍

Any expectation that Young Avengers 1 will take another big leap?  Saw the Patriot announcement.

Whats with the high republic adventures book, did they forget to provide colour? Or maybe it is a colouring book?

Definitely. I thought 200k-250k due to Covid and current state of the industry, and then just before FOC 150-200k. This low of a number is totally unexpected. My guess is that Marvel printed 40k copies of each cover - 33k to 36540 were distributed of each and then 10% overprint for damage returns since their printer's production quality has been spotty over the past year. 

Most stores missed on this one, but I guess you really can't blame them for being hesitant since print runs on the other SW books are relatively low AND Marvel/Disney did nothing to promote this until after FOC. Makes me wonder if each of the five main writers had a case or two of each cover written into their contracts......... 

Woah, very interesting - that's a pretty low run ...

But yeah, I'm curious what High Republic Adventures is like now

I'm really unsure if it's just a variant - as there's a colourised one too ~

They just didn't have the full color version yet is what I understood. It will be in color and there isn't a B&W version.

I was the first inside my LCS today. All of the High Republic copies were marked up, even the regular cover. Not a good practice IMO.

In a couple hours it's now believed to be over 200k. I can't believe BC may have reported something incorrectly.

https://bleedingcool.com/comics/100k-marvels-star-wars-the-high-republic-1-has-200k-orders/

That 200K includes 2nd prints........ 

I think someone at Marvel may have gotten in sh it over the initial report of 100k for the first print run and they are trying to make it look better now. Maybe someone in accounting said "we sold 945,000+ copies of SW 1 in 2015, and you are excited about 100K now?"  lol 

And, it sounds like some stores are cancelling pre-orders now. That 200K will include a lot of orders that are not going to be filled. :eek:
