As a result, retailers are returning to their conservative ordering policies. Which is why, a week after publication, Southern Bastards #1 is now a twelve dollar book, with exclusive variant covers going for more.
Meanwhile the Forbidden Planet variant goes for more than $20, and CBLDF, DCBS and Third Eye variants do pretty well as well.
Meanwhile Nailbiter #1, only out this week, is also already selling copies for $10, while variants such as the selfie-taking Phantom variant hit $17 with others coming close behind. And Ghosted #9 which featured a preview of the series is also now a $15 book.
Looks like speculators, even without the drive of a movie deal, are looking further afield…
