Peter's Comic Book Ramblings

Tuesday, August 19, 2008


You know how Watchmen 1-12 is selling like gangbusters on Ebay right now? Everyone screaming: Near Mint! Rare! First printings!

Okay folks - come on. They're not that rare. Before the trailer hit you could sell your run for $12 if you were lucky. And I could be wrong on this, but other than the first issue, there have never been second prints of any of the issues. Technically, there wasn't a reprint of the first issue either - just one of those DC Millennium editions from 2000 or so when they were reprinting classic issues in their line. So putting in bold FIRST PRINT is stupid and misleading. Because that's all there ever was!

So if you didn't know that, and that's important to you, just know that first printing is all you can actually get anyway.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

(And nothing irks me more than an auction going for over $300 plus and the seller, apparently a comic store that is selling multiple runs, listing in the description: Alan Moore writer and art by Steve Dillon! Way to go moron.)
