I've been trying to get a Fantastic Four Omnibus Vol 2 but they routinely list for over 200$... (a reader lot would probably cost less...)

I remember when Alias TPB Vol 4 was OOP and was selling for insane prices then it got reprinted and the prices tanked, it's risky game

Take notice also of the Marvel Premiere Classics HC line with the banner style cover. They have the print runs listed on the back and some are below 1,000 copies, just sayin. I currently think the #9 Demon in a bottle with the yellow banner cover with only 1400 copies or so printed is a good one. There are none on eBay with that cover, just the all black cover is listed many times..and only one on Amazon listed with the limited cover.

There surely is, but just don't pay a ridiculous price for something as it might get a reprint. Buy low and let someone else pay high.

Number 3 re-reprint is due next year, but the original TPB line never finished, AFAIK. I'd love to be wrong. Loved that series, very underrated.

Tommy vomiting on Batman was one of the few comic book sequences that have ever made me laugh out loud.

What about the GI JOE Vol.1 TPB by IMAGE?

I too don't really understand the prices on rare TPBs/HCs as they are nothing more than reprints, but then again I'm not that type of collector. The capitalist in me is more interested in this than the fan part of me, so thanks for the info!

And yes the MIRACLEMAN TPB is a pricey one. I learned that the moment I sold it for full cover (only?!?!?) at a show years ago thinking I did well. The buyer thought I was kidding and then snatched it up when he realized I wasn't kidding. That's when I learned that some TPBs are worth much more than cover and that some people are willing to pay more, a lot more, for them....

You win some, you lose some. doh\!

The real question is, what will people think of them 20 years from now? If they aren't really being collected and saved in high grades, how many of the lower print ones will survive in HG down the road. Add some demand and BAM! it's the next collecting craze.

+1

It almost has to happen. The way the publishers are going now, there is no way they will be able to keep their whole backlists in print.
