So that went about as well as could be expected! Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding as we sorted through the unfortunate mess that was DC’s handling of their 3D cover month. We thought we’d take a quick second to let you know where everything stands.
First and foremost, we did our best to ensure that our regular weekly customers and pullfile customers got the books they were looking for, in the format they were looking for. We feel pretty good about that!
Secondly, the following books are available right now, 3D versions, at cover price of $3.99. They are no longer one per customer. First come, first served:
ACTION COMICS #23.1 CYBORG SUPERMAN
ACTION COMICS #23.2 ZOD
ACTION COMICS #23.3 LEX LUTHOR
BATMAN #23.2 RIDDLER
BATMAN #23.3 PENGUIN
BATMAN #23.4 BANE
BATMAN SUPERMAN #3.1 DOOMSDAY
GREEN ARROW #23.1 COUNT VERTIGO
JUSTICE LEAGUE #23.1 DARKSEID
SUPERMAN #23.1 BIZARRO
SUPERMAN #23.3 HEL
SUPERMAN #23.4 PARASITE
SWAMP THING #23.1 ARCANE
In addition, we have counted up all of the copies of the 3D books that were pulled for customers that did not want 3D covers or did not want the villain issues. We will be making those issues available as sets, and individually.
Complete Sets: We have been able to make up several complete sets of all 52, 3D, first printing Lenticular covers. This includes all of the 3D Lenticular releases in September (except Forever Evil #1). The set goes for $220.00.
Individual Issues: In addition to the titles listed above, we do have some of the other books that sold out on week of release, in small quantities. These are priced between $8 and $25 each, depending on title (most are $8). Yes, this does include Harley Quinn, Joker’s Daughter, etc. These are also first-come, first-served, and you can buy as many as you like.
Unfortunately we are not able to take requests to “hold” any books. Books must be purchased in store. Please don’t call for availability, we estimate it will change rapidly.
So, we thank you for your business these past 4 weeks as we’ve sold these hot ‘collector’s items’ at cover price or less. We sincerely hope that you’ll continue making us your regular comic book store the other 11 months of the year. 🙂
