When speculation and hype get involved yes!!!

My LCS recently changed owners and I missed this TT12 but Metal 2 was pulled for me - going to wait it out myself.
I expect an initial spike with people overpaying and then priced to level off.
If this character really has staying power I won't mind picking it up then.


Yeah, "speculation" took a little bit longer in the past, since we had to do a bit of guess work on our own, reading Previews, looking at the books on the shelves weekly, Comic Shop News, Wizard when it came around, what Wizard said (after it came out) month-to-month was hot, trending, etc... So, it was a hip-shoot mentality until something could confirm, "ok, yes, this is hot," and give an actual price.

Now, we have ways to let us know ahead of time, "this book is sold out at the distribution level," news warning us of new appearances, sites selling out before books are "officially" released, eBay helping to set pricing based on supply and demand instantly, and are not at the mercy of base-line inflated retail demand prices... It's a new world!

Some of us have been around watching the world change through the conversion.

I have to say I'm pretty shocked on how TT#12 has jumped in price. My LCS has #12 priced at $50. I thought that was pretty high. Then I checked ebay and most are in the $50-$60 range with most ending at $39. As crazy as it sounds, I think this issue will continue to rise in price, hitting the $100 mark (just a prediction) by summer. With a print run less than 60,000 and a high demand in the character, I think "The Batman Who Laughs" is our next Venom.

It looks like he first appeared in The Lord of the Rings as The Mouth of Sauron.

Anyone know who's offering the Mattina variant of Metal #6? Can't find it anywhere, yet pre sales are showing up on ebay...I do believe i like this better than the dell otto cover.

I usually don't go for the virgin covers as they seem disproportionate to me (leaving empty space where the title is removed), but is one seems that the title is blocking part of the artwork focus...may have to take a shot at it...

I’m not a terribly huge Batman fan, but these Metal covers are fantastic. I’m having a metal shop laser cut a piece of stainless steel diamond deck in the shape of the bat-symbol & mounting the graded & framed Metal comics to it. Fantastic man-cave Wall-hanger.
