  1. here are the print runs you missed that were hot books or speculated titles
    133 Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman 4 $3.99 DC 16,573 – Hughes cover highly speculated.
    248 Dawn of Planet of Apes 1 $3.99 Boom 6,569 – new series tieing into the #8 movie of the year – fairly small print run
    296 Alice Cooper 3 $3.99 Dynamite 5,292
    298 Rush Clockwork Angels 6 $3.99 Boom 5,257 – latest issues of 2 rock star themed comic books had fairly small print runs compared to number of worldwide fans – these will have long term interest and I sell lots of these.
    394 Epochalypse 1 $3.99 Random House 3,316
    407 13 Coins 2 $3.99 Titan 2,964 – these last 2 indie books are high profile but yet very small print runs – books to watch out !

    1. Yeah, my local shop had it. He wasn’t sure if he sold it but I could not find it in his variants box. I was gonna pick it up today as I knew he was selling it for $8.99 I think which wasn’t a huge mark up price.

    1. All i could find in the godkillers was the one number. If they were split, the other cover would be below 1500 copies. So at max if they did the two covers seperately would be a print run of max of 3500 copies. Also. I had a hard time finding a nm copy. A lot were ragged.
