Batman 608-609 Double Feature – February 2003
This week I give you a comic that just doesn't seem to get enough love! It is the Batman 608-609 Double Feature, with a Jim Lee cover not released anywhere else! This oversized comic reprinted Batman 608 and 609, the beginning of the amazing Hush storyline. You really cannot go wrong with picking up a copy! It was released in February 2003, at the same time Batman 611 was out.
Ok, so now we are on-to the two most important items here, print run and cost! At the time, the Batman print runs were approximately 140,000. Some of this was due to the success of the Hush storyline, and it caused Batman to be the top seller and most printed comic of the year. BUT, this comic only had a print run of 9,200. Most stores did not order this. In terms of price, right now, your PC and your wallet will love you if you get a copy. Average prices are approximately $10. I do believe eventually, this comic will catch on, and some Batman completionists will want this comic.
Happy Hunting Fellas!
