Batman Adventures #12 Comic Con Box
The most sought out character who was going to appear in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, the fine respectable folks at Wizard (yes, please note that is all sarcasm that last sentence) had the brilliant idea to do a variant cover for their Comic Con Box monthly mailer service. The book chosen was a Batman Adventures #12 with a new cover in both a color (black) and black and white sketch (more pricey)
A year ago, if you were lucky to secure a high grade copy which is always an adventure with gorillas packing monthly subscription boxes, you could’ve sold the black cover easily for over $50+. The book was so hot that it made it to the TOP 10 (again, the top 10 only reports hard data / facts / sales and is no
way speculating). Sure, it was Harley Quinn’s first appearance, but a REPRINT, and the cover was new but kind of creepy with sexual overtones.
OK, now 52 weeks, and let me know if you read this before, gee, the hype has DIED down. There has been a TON of new Harley Quinn covers this past year and Suicide Squad covers with some epic new exclusive covers for the Rebirth launch. Needless to say, the Comic Con Box BA #12 has taken a nosedive in price.
Looking at the Bay, copies in NM condition are listed at $30 … This book is now yesterday’s news and ICE COLD. Needless to say, the One Year Later Watcher has to give this a thumbs down.
Thank you for all the comments (I read every one) and be careful of super exclusives because, as you might have noticed (it’s NOT a secret), there seems to be a super exclusive every month!!!! Proceed with caution!
