Random Question - Duck Knight Returns #1 SDCC9346

Collector Paulbg2000 private msg quote post Address this user
Ok, so I was at the Local comic Shop digging through the bins and I snagged this book (not this exact copy, but it's a NM copy looks like it's never been opened) for $4...I figured it's worth a blind buy...

I can't find much on it, I know it's the San Diego Comic Con Exclusive from 2010...price guide lists it as about $13...but there's copies going for $150 and even one nutty listing of $250 US

What am I missing here?!

That whole series had low print runs and are pretty hard to find. This one hovers around the $100 mark, from what I see on eBay. I was a huge fan of the cartoon when I was a kid, so I've been collecting this series and snagging the variants when I run across them. The Batman homage covers were pretty cool as well.

Thanks for the info, I found that it had a 500 print run on this cover...which could speak to the price. I could only find the one listing on e-bay, which does tell me it's a harder to find cover...but man, $250?!

Yea, that does seem a big much. There is also this version and a 2nd print variant of the one you asked about where is is struck by lightning.

The second link at $149.99 says "Out of Stock"...

Wondering if I just throw it up on Ebay for Sh*ts and giggles at $150 and see what happens...maybe I can turn my $4 purchase into something bigger! LOL

Last few eBay sold sales are between $80-100, might be worth a shot...I got a copy of the 2nd pic I put up for $100 a few months ago. The guy had it at $150 for the longest time, he dropped the price and it still didn't sell, so I offered $100 and he accepted. It was a CGC 9.8.

If you're gonna sell it, try selling it here first imo.

Book sold today for about $90 Canadian after conversion...not bad for a $4 bin find.
