Was at my local comic shop today setting my pull list as I haven't been able to get there as often, I was browsing around and saw one copy of the Batman Inc #8 issue with the R. I. P, picked it up to buy it and saw the price tag of 75.00.

Ridiculous, haven't seen a book with such a quick price jump in a long time Phone Post

I guess this is another selling point for digital. There should be no reason for digital prices to ever go up. Phone Post

I don't pay premiums for books. Just new releases. I like my store though, guy that runs it has been in the biz 30 years. Really good customer service. I can email them and have a response in 20 mind. Phone Post

I would only pay that much if there were 4 different covers, sealed in bags with foil embossed designs. Those are the things that made comics great.

It's probably some variant, I'm guessing? $75 is still hard to swallow considering how many prints they do of shit nowadays.

Perhaps, guess I didn't look that close. Still even autographed by Grant it shouldn't be that much yet Phone Post

Unless it's the sketch variant there is no way you should be charged that much.

I have all the covers except the sketch and none of them are running at that price. Hell you can still get the first print copies at cover price online from Midtown Comics website. They have the digital copy and the regular RIP covers.

It was under ordered by the comic shops as nobody was told what would happen until the orders had been sent to Diamond. That might be the variant though, b&w?

MrMead - Regular cover is going for $30-49.99

No. It is still selling for retail unless you go to Ebay.

Midtown is huge so they might have bought a ton of copies. Is that the first printing? I know the second print came out last week. If it is first print, I would buy one just for the option to sell it on ebay. In the last few weeks I have looked at the prices of certain newer comics I have and the going price for them is outrageous. Have a copy of Peter Panzerfaust that is going for $400 and is only 6+ months old. I never bought comics to try and make a buck on, but looking at what I have and the going price on ebay, I might just sell them and buy the trades.

The sketch and white background covers on Midtown are 1st printings. They initially sold out and a few days later announced that they had received the rest and it hasn't sold out since then.
