JLS recently posted something that got me thinking...

One book I've recently noticed dropping was the Harley Quinn Rebirth Dell'Otto pink cover, which originally retailed at $50 but soon jumped to $200+ and was became the most expensive Harley book to come out of the Rebirth launch.


I'e noticed that book cooling down quite a bit recently, even seeing some BIN listings below $150 and one copy go for as $70 in the past week. I'm glad to see this one cooling off. I missed it at retail but the novelty of being colored slightly differently from the Dell'Otto color variant was hardly enough for me to pay an inflated price for it.

What other books have you noticed, are glad to see, or expect to see taking a price hit?

B&W variants in general are due for a correction. It's getting to be as gimmicky as foil, embossed, chromium covers.

Also that Harley Quinn cover does not look good to me in ANY color.

Any book that shoots up as fast as New 52 Batman 1 was bound to come down.

It certainly wasn't my favorite cover of the bunch but I picked up a copy.

I'm not a fan of B&W covers when they're just taking the finished art and desaturating it, which is exactly what they did with this Harley:




That said, I'm more accepting of inked covers and actual sketch covers where you can see the rough pencil work since I like to see the process. Unfortunately a lot of places like to use "sketch cover" interchangeably to refer any of the three.


I was excited that we might've gotten one of these "in the process" covers for the Dell'Otto Harley since Bulletproof was using the following art in its listing but it ended up just being desaturated art.

Waiting on Batman Adventures #12 to slide back towards me. 2000 seemed to be the cooling off point. I've seen 9.8s offered at 15 and 1600 in the last couple weeks.

@Darkga I feel the same way about all these three pack orders. Regular, negative and black and white? I feel like it's just a cheap way to make fast cash. Just flooding the market with so many variants.

Oh man, negatives are the worst. They look like they're made by some teenager that just discovered photoshop
