    Default Amazing Spider-Man #700 To Bring In Two Million Dollars, Avenging Spider-Man #15.1 Not So Much.

    I understand that after Final Order Cut Off, the order numbers for Amazing Spider-Man #700 stands at a quarter of a million copies, at $7.99 each. Which works out as two million dollars retail. It used a number of tiered variant covers (including a 1:200 version) but nothing like, say Uncanny Avengers #1 or the deep discounting of... well, also Uncany Avengers #1.

    But as we've mentioned before, also shipping on the same day, and the only two Marvel titles available, and a direct sequel to Amazing Spider-Man #700, is Avenging Spider-Man #15.1. I understand orders have been a tiny fraction of the Amazing Spider-Man #700 ones. As a result, demand may well outstrip supply on December 26th.

    This feels like one for a future Speculator's Corner, no?

    For all his shameless shilling, I really hope Rich is earning a cut of the sales.

    The speculator stuff is the only thing I don't like about this site, to be honest. And I'm not sure why Rich seems to be obsessing over a random, clearly-not-essential "point one" issue of a secondary title unless he's trying to create the demand he keeps speculating on.

    I'm honestly wondering if I should even bother reading this site any more. Rich does post some genuinely interesting things on a fairly regular basis, but with the sheer amount of frenetic, even slightly desperate hyping of inferior projects (this, Before Watchmen, Crossed, etc.), I'm discouraged from being a regular, so I miss genuinely interesting and important things such as Tony Harris' meltdown.

    That's 2 million $ of retailer's budget tied up in stock that maybe won't sell. Well done Marvel.

    So dont order it, pass the problem on to other retailers. Do the same with JLA #1 with its 52 variants.

    I suspect there might be a little bit of short-term, speculator demand for this issue on Ebay, but once Superior Spider-Man's got several underwhelming issues under its belt (and especially when things are eventually back to the status quo), the price will drop as rapidly as the interest in it.
