The Wachowskis Bring Matrix Comics Back To Print After $200 eBay Sales

The Matrix Comics are a group of short stories, comics and pin-ups set in the Matrix universe. Originally published in 1999 on the Matrix website, ahead of and alongside the original The Matrix movie, a selection of which later published in a series of print volumes published by the Wachowskis' company Burlyman Entertainment. The comics aimed to expand the history and impact of the world on its dreaming population.

Three years ago, a 20th-anniversary hardcover collection collected almost all of them, including some strips that had never been seen before, 400 pages worth. The Matrix Comics: 20th Anniversary Edition was a big seller at $40, sold fast and went out of print. Copies have sold recently on eBay for over $200. Well, in August, to follow the new movie, the Wachowskis are sending The Matrix Comics: 20th Anniversary back to print for $50 each. Though they do say that limited copies are available, so you might want to have a word with your local comic book shop sooner rather than later, if you don't want to miss out this time.
