I got lucky and pre-ordered mine for $350.00.


I would say so, I sent in my request the day they notified me it was coming but still they were gonna make me pay for their order. It would almost be worth it to turn that around and make some quick cash lol.

Are you guys for real?! $3500 and $350 for a variant cover?! INSANE!!! You guys realize that Peter Parker won't stay gone forever, just like Superman didn't stay dead forever, right?

While I would love to get a 1:700 variant cover, I could put that kind of money towards a nice low number ASM issue to help complete my collection.

Shop at My Store
It's still going to be one of the rarest Spider-Man comics EVER.

And who would sell theirs for $350? I think that shop owner needs to hire a new accountant.

It isn't stupid if you collect all appearances and variants and actually enjoy collecting. I'm just not as negative as most.

Plus there's the fact that I don't pay for my weekly comics and most variants since I work at my LCS. This is a rarity for me....and no I didn't buy this from my store.....we're not that stupid to order this.

*scratches head*

"we're not that stupid to order this"

yet

"I got lucky and pre-ordered mine for $350.00."

*eyebrow raised*

The thosuands of dollars price some are quoting is absolute insanity for most. I suppose if you're loaded, it's not that big of deal. Even at the $350 pricetag, it seems way out of line. You do know it's the exact same book inside as the $7.99 one, right? I suppose I'm a bit skeptical about 'variant covers'.

Meh. Mid-stream I realzied that it doesn't matter what I'm writing Laughing

You got it exactly (not sure about the confusion). We aren't dumb enough to throw over $2,000 away to get this book. I am smart enough to get the book for $350 while someone else throws their money away. Laughing

Holy crap, variants aren't different on the inside too? Big Grin

EDIT: Mind you I also have all of the Amazing Spider-Man #666 Covers too. I collect all Spider-Man books!!!

Don't they (Marvel) know that only the mega-places are going to order enough to get the 1 variant? Isn't that a case of making the rich richer? I thought that their discount was the 'reward' for buying so many books.

Yeah, one would think there was some special extra character info inside variants, with the prices they charge for some of them Silly

You have all the #666 covers? Wasn't that specialized for each comic store they were sold to? Isn't that like 100s if not thousands of covers?

It was 144 covers in total. It was fun getting them all and contacting all of the different stores. Some were much harder to get than others. Mostly the foreign ones (Japan and Scotland were the toughest).

Oof, not as many as I originally thought but still.. I guess if you've gone that far, then $350 ain't that big of a deal Applause

I am still impressed that you got it for 350. The store that is selling it to you must not know what they have or they have so much money they can sell those that cheap.

So I wonder if Marvel will now pull a DC ( referring to Armegeddon 2001) and do a last second switch?

I thought they already said he wasn't the guy in the costume? Though if he is - hoo boy! I've been waiting for someone to bring him back for real (I *loved* PAD's series). And a nice time-travel story would be in Slott's wheelhouse, Dr Who fan that he is.
