Limited to 500 copies and sold out on the floor almost instantly. That was the story of the Wytches #1 NYCC variant – selling out of each days allocation in a few minutes of being available to the public. This book is selling for $100+ in raw condition on ebay and as mentioned is limited to 500 copies and not 1000 like the other variants.
Will this book perform as well as the Saga RRP? Which was up to $200 in raw condition for the first two months of it release?
One variant for this book that hasn’t been released yet and hasn’t had a print run announced is the CBLDF cover – only available to membership stores – this book will be available in the coming weeks as CBLDF ships them out. This will be the hardest to find variant cover, more so than the Hastings Variant, which is already selling for $25.
News also came out this weekend that Wytches is being developed into a movie by New Regency film company. Big Surprise said nobody.
I would also avoid the I for Image book as a first appearance of the story. the I for image books are the first appearance of a lot of stories, however, this book is printed in the tens of thousands. Images comic’s Whats Next #NN was actually sold at the Image Expo’s so its a totally different bag of cats. – even though it doesn’t perform well – first appearance of Black Science, Deadly Class, Rat Queens, and more!
UPDATE: CHECK OUT THIS LINK: FORBIDDEN PLANET IS OFFERING NYCC WYTCHES – IS THIS A REAL LINK? WORTH THE GAMBLENEVER MIND: 99% of orders have been cancelled!
Thanks Simon Payne and Indy for the heads up
Crossed is being turned into a live-action webseries written and directed by Garth Ennis. Personally I stopped reading Crossed because I couldn’t deal with the change in writers and universe in every new story arc. This with the already hilarious news that Alan Moore is going to be writing an arc of Crossed will only drive up the prices of Crossed #0 (first appearance – 0.99 cover price) and Crossed #1. Even if it is only into the $10 book arena.
