Issue 1 due in March. I'll add to my pull list and give it a shot for reading, but  from a speculator standpoint, do you think it will hold long term value, or will the print run be too excessive?

Also, the collector's edition:  http://www.midtowncomics.com/store/dp.asp?PRID=OBLIVION+SONG+BY+KIRKMAN+_1711230  retail $200, midtown preselling for 150.  Anyone going to take a gamble on it?  1000 piece run.

I thought about that collector's edition.  If the book gets hot, that statue could go right along with it.

Got this from DCBS this morning:

As stated in the description, this item was limited to 1,000 copies for the direct market. There are over 1500 direct market retailers so orders for this title were heavily allocated by the publisher. We are only receiving 1 copy out of our whole order and it will go to the customer who ordered it first. We will not be able to fill any other orders for this title unfortunately. All orders that we cannot fill have been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Not likely, they are selling instantly for like 350 on Ebay, not really feeling it....

What is the print run on this?  Sounds like they are overprinting... so I doubt this will be a repeat of WD or Invincible

It's got some weird print run where they stated there would not be a 2nd printing, so I think it's going to be pretty high IIRC

anyone know if the advance copy TPB can be graded by CGC? It is very thick, not sure if can be slabbed. I haven't seen any show up which surprises me as it would be the true first appearance of any characters that appear in issue 1-4.

I believe they still slab trades so I would think they could do it.

They don't slab trades.
Maybe you're thinking or prestige editions, like Harley Quinn #nn, Dark Knight Returns, etc...?

They used to grade them. I wonder why they don't now ?

Nope. Thinking of trades....(but again they might not do it any longer)

Maybe it’s the new case. My trade was graded and sits in the old case.

Why would anyone slab a trade?  o.O

When I started the graded run I have with East of West I graded everything. At one point the  registry gave points for graded trades. 

Only reason I did it.

Some trades are rare. Predator vs Magnus comes to mind.

I picked one up to read today from the LCS. Doubt it will really rise in value given the news mentioned above that they're going to print a LOT to ensure no 2nd printings... This one isn't taking anyone by surprise, but hopefully it's a good story!
