Hello my fellow agents. Last week we took a look at Marvel omnibuses. In an attempt to balance our intelligence, this week I found it fitting to delve into DC Archive Editions.
This series of classic reprints is ultra-high quality and retail priced ranging from $49.99 to 59.99.
Years ago I ran across a large collection at a local shop. I got my hands on a few of the under printed copies for 25% off.
Below is a break down of the issues that sell for a premium. I have included the latest sell figures.
If you can score a discount on any of these, you will find yourself with a great deal or profitable flip (if you are so inclined).
I found a copy of this Batman Dark Knight just last week. It reprints Batman #26–31. The store had it priced at $19.99. After my discount and sales credit, it cost me $5. I’m holding on to it for now. I think it will only become more scarce .
Last and certainly not least is Legion of Super-Heroes volume 13. This collection of Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #224–233 was the last of the Archive Editions to be printed. As I understand it, the print run was lower than normal. You can pay full retail for this one and still make out like a bandit!

Happy hunting my fellow agents and as always be careful out there.
