Inexpensive Variant Alert (UK Edition): The Magic Order #1 A Place in Space Exclusive

We have been spotlighting inexpensive variants for a while now. Sadly, our friends in the UK usually get the short stick on it due to shipping costs. Here is one for you guys. A Place in Space is doing an exclusive for Mark Millar’s upcoming comic and Netflix show, The Magic Order. Check out the details below:

The Magic Order #1 A Place in Space Exclusive is £6.99 plus shipping. A little over £10 total. Not bad. And the details:

DUE TO BE RELEASED ON 13th JUNE 2018

We are thrilled to announce our first exclusive Store Variant. This is only available from us. Limited to 250 copies online.

The cover is by a new artist chosen by Mark Miller and showcased in Millerworld Annual – Ozgur Yildirim.

We live in a world where we’ve never seen a monster, and The Magic Order is the reason we sleep safely in our beds. Magic meets the mob in THE MAGIC ORDER, as five families of magicians-sworn to protect our world for generations-must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day, they live among us as our neighbors, friends, and co-workers, but by night, they are the sorcerers, magicians, and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness…unless the darkness gets them first. MARK MILLAR’s first NETFLIX comic book, drawn by the incredible OLIVIER COIPEL

    Awesome cover! Bought one for the pc. Anyone else think his “arms” may be a bit too long through?

    250 online how many avaliable total . these damn company’s are freeking liers.

    • Anthony says:

      The print run on single shop Image books are between 500-750. So they are selling 250 on eBay and the remainder at shop or at cons.

      It irks me to no end too. If your product cant sell without misleading advertising, then you have no faith in your product as it is, and probably shouldnt be in business.

      • Stephen Matthew Hale says:

        I agree. I have inquired with other places too that say 1000 released online. Multiple occasions I have asked Unknown Comics what total print run is and they never respond.

      • JayClue says:

        Thats the real sketchy thing. Even if you ask. They refuse to tell. Shady as shit.

      • JayClue says:

        What are they hiding? Whatever it is, they can hide it without my money in their pockets.

    My favorite ebay store…banned me from buying comics because i didnt use the basket.

    • Tweed says:

      Then they banned my g/f for association because we use the same address. Joke

    • agentpoyo says:

      Didn’t use the basket? I’m confused.. you mean the virtual shopping basket? What’d you do, buy multiple items separately instead of lumping them altogether?

  4. Bill says:

    Limited to 250, offering 20 9.8 CGC graded, and from the UK! Had to have one! Now, hope all the shipping doesn’t trash the book…..

    • JayClue says:

      Not limited to 250. Limited to 250 online. Tonys right that they usually do 500-750 issues for small press exclusives. It is concerning to me that use the Ltd verbage in order to mislead consumers into thinking its a 250 print run. Smh.

      • agentpoyo says:

        Just marketing gimmicky words at best. Just like seeing those who sell their books on eBay that throw the “rare” in the title when there’s dozens or hundreds of others listing their’s for sale as well. A 1909 Honus Wagner is what I’d consider rare. A comic with less than 10 copies being sold online I’d say is scarce but when there’s plenty of choices to buy from, I try to sway away from using such terms in my own listings, just doesn’t seem right.

        But one could claim this is limited in comparison to the regular cover more than likely which I’m sure will be 40-50k or more since it’s a Millar book, at least my local shops seem to load up on Millar books initially.

    I’m gonna pass like usual. I’m gonna wait for the trade, that’s if I ever get around to reading it.

      • agentpoyo says:

        I can’t find myself ever paying over cover price for a Mark Millar book. There is no spec play with his books. Everyone already knows his entire intention is to just get media deals, most of his books already have a deal before hitting the shelves.

        Millar books hold zero long term value with almost every title he’s put out. With that said, if and when I want to read a Millar book, I’ll just wait when the Trade goes on sale, save me some money and keeps my long boxes from accumulating worthless books. 🙂
