    Wonder how long the New 52 Batman run can hold up. I’ve seen some pull back in Combo pack prices and some of the other variants. Right now there are 258 issues in the present run counting the multiple printings, newsstand, variant covers, and con covers.

      I was thinking something along those lines also…..but I am not sure we will see it coming down at all. I believe it is the best written DC book now (and has been a while)….Bat will have new movies coming out….always great artists….just not sure we are going to see any let down.

      I think these prices are sustainable unless they do a reboot/renumbering. I just can’t see that in the near future though, as the Snyder/Capullo pairing has been solid.

    Very cool list, I know batman 1:200 has around…..200-350 printed, those are the numbers i can remember, and i believe the 5th print had a run of 1,500 or so, theyre rarely ever on ebay so im sure people tried to snatch it up as quickly as possible.

    1st gwenpool is out of control right now, it makes me wonder the print run on this issue because i have a strange feeling the hype brought in a few 50-100,000 extra copies in pre orders, time will tell i suppose – heres to hoping we get additional cover prints with an eventual black and white variant
