Bleeding Cool has confirmed that a CGC 10.0 slabbed copy of Batman Damned #1 with the Jim Lee variant cover, signed by Brian Azzarello, Jim Lee and Lee Bermejo has sold on eBay for $2500.
It was listed with a Buy It Now price of $2999.99but the seller accepted the reduced price. This is the highest sum that the comic published a couple of months ago has sold for.
But for those complaining at MCM London Comic Con that Brian Azzarello was charging £40 for signed Batman Damned #1 copies going to CGC, this might explain a) why and b) why so many dealers were still willing to line up with multiple copies at that price.
I suggested to Brian he should consider adding a '1' to the front of the Damned signature fees…
Batman Damned #2 will be published on December 5th. Final orders from retailers are due a week today.
