  1. What are you expecting the DCeased 250 Qty RATIO Variant to start at? $75?

    I’m not sure it’s different enough to have people wanting it. They’re definitely going to oversaturate the market with #1’s unless there’s something extra added to the “Special edition” that’s not in the original 5 variants.

    It sounds like they’re closing the window for us to be able to sell #1 by October. Only bright side is it may noticeably increase demand for #2 when people are looking for copies to follow up the free one with.

    1. Is it too much to ask for it to only be a partial reprint of #1 that requires purchasing a copy of #1 to find out the rest of the story? No description yet to go with the name. Just “Special Edition.”

  2. #2 is still in stock at Diamond right now if you want to stock your shelves a little deeper on #2’s to pair with the #1’s or if you think #2 might jump later due to a shortage to pair with those Free #1’s. If you want to roll the dice your local store can get you more A’s and B’s right now if you ask. I just ordered another 30 of each just in case!!


  3. Never mind, I just bought out #2 Variant cover and kicked it into back order for the next 24 copies that turn up. A Variant had to split to fill so it’s probably about gone also.
