Welcome back to more back issue madness. Here in store back issues have been doing very well. I just gave a customer credit for Teen Titans #12, the first Batman Who Laughs and put it on the back issue wall here. Sold another copy of Venom Lethal Protector #1 for $14.99 yesterday. I have sold more copies of Venom Lethal Protector that came out in 1993 than some of the various current issues published by Marvel. The shiny cover with Mark Bagley artwork is a hit.
Learning that Lady Killer #1 from Dark Horse is going for over $40 was quite the surprise to me.
Ultimate Fallout #4 sat in our back issue bin for quite a while for cover price. Now it goes for triple digits.
Spawn current issues and his back issues has seen an increase in demand. People are excited about the upcoming issue of Spawn #300.
Iron Man back issues from his first ongoing series have been getting picked up.
