It went up to a crazy high of $170 settling in the $120 range for now. Basically, ComicTom’s YouTube video of Hot Books of the Year listed this book as #1. Not sure why, but it has led to this feverish buying of this book. Flip them if you have them. This book will probably keep tumbling down.
I have a customer that is some sort of traveling jobber or inspector for Walmart … on this info, I asked him to keep an eye out and I would pay a bounty on each book he could deliver … he’s hit at least 10 Walmarts in the last 3 days or so with no luck at all …
There aren’t any 1st appearances in it or anything. I think what makes it key is that there were so few copies printed. According to Key Collector there was only 56 stores that received 60 copies each for a total of approximately 3360 copies in existence.
I don’t know . I’m just repeating what I read on Key Collector. I searched Google and they’re the only website that has any information for why this comic went parabolic. Bleeding Cool had an article but they had no idea why.
Thank you for the response. I’m now curious to know how that app got a hold of Walmarts ordering information. Idk, for a book of mostly reprinted stories, the current market prices do not add up to me. Maybe you should sell at these high water marks. I can not see the book holding that value for very long, given its contents.
Yeah it is curious how they got the info from Walmart. I hope they didn’t just make it up. I try to collect every Batman comic I can so I’ll keep it for my collection and if it holds it’s value then that’s great and if it doesn’t that’s ok with me too.
Makes absolutely no sense when all the other giants are released in most stores. What makes even less than absolutely no sense is having 50-60 copies sitting in each of those stores when many of the giants are just sitting on shelves or repackages into 3-packs and offered at a discount. Why would Walmart agree to such a poor sales strategy?
No chance in hell that the krap collector guy got his hands/eyes on the Wal-Mart national purchase order for a comic book, or anything.
This is Nick being Nick. Dishonest, opportunistic and loves to make shit up and over pump said made up shit.
The fact that KrapCC changed numbers is clear proof that they had no concrete data to begin with. KCC giving more cud for it’s sheep to chew on.
The funny thing is, even if it’s 3000 or 1500, which I’m certain it is neither, it is a nothing book full of, mostly, reprinted stories. Every single Marvel store variant has a print run of 3000, and I believe DCs to be 2500. A nothing reprint book, with an okay cover, with 1500-3000 print run is not worth much, to me.
