Rick Remender And Matteo Scalera's Black Science #2 – Speculator's Delight
Sometimes a comic book gets hot for no known reason. It's like magic, it's a mystery.
And right now a copy of Black Science #2 has sold for $26 on eBay, with others going for over $20.
It only came out the other week.
It seems to be a combination of a big launch for Black Science #1 by Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera, made returnable if retailers ordered 110% of their numbers of the big selling East Of West #1, but no similar promotion for issue 2, only a variant cover available if a store ordered twenty copies.
But people really liked Black Science #1 and bought it in their droves. And now they want the much lower ordered issue 2. But because there was no after market effect on the still widely available at cover price issue 1, the drive to increase orders on issue 2 wasn't there as much.
And now there just aren't enough to go around. The second print will be out on January 22nd..
