I recently came in to a ton of newsstands from someone who worked pulping them for B&N so this has been all super informative as a lot of info is hard to find on them. Are you still trying to complete your set? I’d be happy to check my stuff. There was a ton of DC

Yeah I pulled those out unaware the IDW ones held some value. I put in a huge order on BCW when I started going through the boxes and realized what was in them. They’re all getting bagged and boarded.

These clearly weren't pulped.  Did B&N allow the purchase of books that should have been pulped? hm

It's likely that there's something not completely legal about the circumstances. Publishers issue credits for "pulped" newsstands which are unsold and the ownership of the books returns to the publisher.  The publisher can burn them, trash them, donate them to charity, or whatever, as long as it is the publisher's choice what to do with their property.  If the publisher believes the books to be removed from the market, then without the publisher's permission, I believe it is illegal to create any profits with their property.

That said, I'm glad the books were rescued... just... be aware.

Well, I bought books off a guy with a good story. Can’t actually verify the provenance so I feel like I’ll get by.

 

Either way I got a really interesting collection

Definitely a good collection, and I doubt if any publisher is going to care about this volume of books.  The industry, however, does have a history of bigger problems related to similar situations... supposedly "pulped" books turning up in warehouses by the pallet load.

No.  Chuck turned them into his empire.  But even he had to admit it was legally dangerous, and he got "permission" from the VP of Publishing at Marvel.
