Consider this an irregular feature looking at comic books that have gone to second prints or more. Now, it is worth remembering that some publishers plan second prints automatically, whether they are needed or not and will often just run extra first print copies in the initial run, set them aside and put a second print cover on them. It can be a marketing strategy, showing that there is confidence in the performance of the book, get a headline or three and use it to persuade retailers to up their orders of subsequent books. And comics news reporting sites become implicit in that market distortion every time we run them as a story.
But hey ho, away we go. In for a penny…
We told you that Inhuman #7 would be getting a second print ahead of the double shipping of Inhuman #8. And here it is.
Basically, a different back colour. Death Of Wolverine #2 gets a third print cover…
While Legendary Star-Lord #1 goes to a fourth printing, and Edward Scissorhands #1 sells out and gets a second print too.
And while we're at it, let's have a Cover Variance guest special… a new 1:25 Simone Bianchi cover for Rocket Raccoon #7.
