    More people thinking their copies will put their kids through college. This is X-Men #1, Death of Superman, and Death of Cap all over again. Six months from now those issues will be selling for $10 a pop.

    If I were you I'd sell my copy while the getting is good.

    I was looking for a copy at the local comic shop but no luck. :(  I wanted to put it next to my Spider-Man Colbert variant cover issue at work.

    Yep. Probably only 5 bucks. Well they needed to do something to increase the falling Spidey sales. I can't believe this sold better than the death of Batman. (That'll probably hit the news tomorrow)

    He's killed in Final Crisis 6 after shooting Darkseid with the same bullet used to kill orion. Superman comes down from the sky kicking all kinds of ass then it ends with superman holding up Batman skeletal corpse.

    Try to engage brain before busting out spoilers - TT

    I've had all kinds of people who've never come into my shop before expecting me to have the issue for them to buy and then walking away pissed at me when I told them I didn't get any of them.

    Like I needed the grief. One woman in paticular went nuts on me and outright accused me of being one of the "Pricks" online who are selling the $2.99 comic for $100.00 rather than selling it to her for the cover price. To which I told her I'm not one of those guys, that if I had them, I wouldn't sell them for $100.00 online... I'd sell them for $80.00 and moved them out faster than the guys she thought were Pricks. :D

    You sir are a dick. :D 

    I remember when Superman 75 came out and it was all over the news. people were scooping up copies for the hell of it. Not comic readers like ourselves. But because the news said it was coming, there it was. Well what they forget to mention is that it's a VARIANT and thus only 1:whatever number get printed. I really really think the news needs to say this as well as the people at Marvel who tell the press the story. (I'm looking at you Joey Queersada)
