From time to time a book will sell for multiple times cover price for no real reason. No movie tie in, no TV show coming, not a first print. These are all characteristics that Poison Ivy Cycle of Life and Death #2, but that hasn’t stopped the book for selling up to $19.
You will not be able to find these online at TFAW, Mycomicshop, Midtown, or Graham Crackers, they are all gone.
While an adult Ivy has been cast for Gotham, this is not her first appearance by a long shot. However, Poison Ivy Cycle of Life and Death #2, as the rest of the series does, features great art and story telling. The art could be the key as Ivy hasn’t looked this good in a while. The print run on the issue is about 27,000 copies (based off sales through Diamond.)
Recently closed sales on eBay have been all over the $10 range, which is not really that bad for a $2.99 book.
Several CGC graded copies went up for sale, all 9.8’s, for under $40 (very tempting. Overall the book is showing growth, slow but organic growth. Since copies can still be found in many local shops, it is really worth keeping an eye out on.
