They were part of a special promotion for a hardcover "DETECTIVE
COMICS: 80 YEARS OF BATMAN" book...$5.00 each if you bought the $29.00 book...regular price if you just bought the comic.

Open question for @kaptainmyke or anyone else that ordered the Alex Ross variant directly from his shop. I was too late and ordered mine from a seller off eBay. He is now telling me he has yet to receive the copy he ordered, hasn't been getting responses from the Alex Ross shop, and never received any details regarding shipping. I find all of that very difficult to believe and think the seller realized what the copies are selling for now and is hoping I just give up and ask for a refund. What was your experience with your order?

Check the sellers sales. See if there are any other presales of this or any other of the Ross Tec 1000 covers by this seller and if he has gotten any feedback. On them.

I wouldn’t give up. Price will likely drop once the hype dies down, so if they are Don’t let the seller off the hook and if he is scamming you at least don’t allow him to relist and get the current prices. Keep monitoring his sales to to see if he throws one up on eBay. Might catch him in the act.

I ordered from the Alex Ross store directly so I couldn't tell you, sorry.

@kaptainmyke My main question for you though is how communicative was the Alex Ross store with respect to your order? I basically don't believe the seller when he states the Alex Ross store has had no contact with him with respect to the order.

@Drogio Thanks for the advice; I did indeed check that, but mine was the only copy he has posted. I agree, and do not intend to let him off the hook on this and check his listings every now and then. Maybe everything he is saying is true, but I just have my doubts as my experience is these shops usually keep their customers in the loop regarding order status.

I have a few mutual friends who said they ordered but did not get the confirmation email after it sold out. Could have timed out the second they ran out of copies?

That happened to me as well. The page came up that said order processed, but my paypal account was never charged and never got an email from the Alex Ross site. I only noticed the issue a few hours later....long after they sold out.

Oh, that's interesting and unfortunate. That very well could be the source of the problem.

Hard to say if the price will go down on the book. I don't see it, but thats just me...do we know the print run of it yet?

I thought I came across a print run of 500 at some point. Not sure if that is correct or not though.

Walked into a local comic shop for the first time in years.





Seems like all new books have all reverted to low number issues. Think I only saw a handful of titles in the double digits.

Just had a quick look. Alex does the artwork on one of the stories.
Met him years ago at a comic book convention in Brisbane Australia and got him to draw me a pic of the Sub-mariner.

Yeah, watch this carefully. If you got it at a significant discount to the current price, he is probably hoping you will relent. Just be patient ... whether he's scamming you or not, he'll have to eventually produce some communication from Ross's store. Then you can decide how to proceed.

@obrie2tm You may want to contact your seller again. I checked facebook. People started selling them on April 6th. These pictures are from Alex Ross' facebook page.

How much was the Alex Ross variant selling for on his website?

I was lucky enough to get the signed Frank Miller variant from Midtown Comics but that Alex Ross looks AMAZING!

I pre-ordered the Ross variants along with variants from a few other retailers, and all I can tell you is that the Ross books shipped first out of all the retailers I ordered from. Whoever sold you them on EBay should have had them by now unless something went wrong with the order, but that doesn't excuse the seller from not communicating that with you.

Am I missing something? I thought the prices had calmed down after a couple of days after release. This is insane.

I’m not sorry you’ve missed out on that item. The only people I feel sorry for are the ones paying $100s of dollars for a new release just for a cover.

But it is a first appearance!!

@Drogio I bought it from Alex Ross’s site for regular price. I just don’t know why it sold for that price when just a week ago it slowed to around 250

Ps. I just like watching certain comics I have to see what the sell for.

@Tedsaid it’s to much for those covers. I could maybe see if they were signed but nope. Just regular variants.

@poka Thanks, that is what I was figuring with respect to communicating with the Alex Ross shop. I understand some delay with any response, but find it hard to believe the seller I bought the book from would have contact the shop multiple times to no avail.
