Batman/Fortnite Comic Gets 3rd Print As 1st Print Hits $117 On eBay

Bleeding Cool has been reporting on the insanity that has been the sales of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book in comic stores these last two days. With retailers under siege from new customers discovering a fast sell-out, no retailer having ordered enough, and the Fortnite code in each copy downloading an exclusive (for a couple of months) Harley Quinn Rebirth skin. 

Indeed, right now there is a copy of a bagged and sealed Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 on eBay right now for over $117 with 31 bids and five hours to go. That is insanity when the print run was still the largest of the week and a second print is due in a couple of weeks with the same Fortnite code. But that is the way of the world.

Well, in an attempt to calm things down, Bleeding Cool can confirm a third printing is ready and waiting for retailers to order and scheduled for the 1st of June. Retailers can order as many of them as they want and readers can order them for $4.99 each. A second printing of #2 will also be made that day, and a second printing of #3. Retailers also got the chance to up their orders of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #4 today. No one should be going without…
