How To Make Money Fast In Comics by Rich Johnston #2: Yellow Rage

Posted by November 8, 2009 4 Comments

There are lots of Yellow Rings as part of the Blackest Night promotion available. Those who couldn’t get one because their shop wouldn’t order 25 copies of Doom Patrol #4 can buy them for a buck or two online. Everyone should be able to get the ring they want.



Unless you want an Error Ring.

Error Rings are Blackest Night promotion rings of one colour with the wrong lantern logo. Such as this Yellow Ring with the emblem of the Red Lanterns on it by mistake.


This was discovered by Jay Bardyla of Happy Harbor Comics in Edmonton, Canada. And here’s one with a Violet Lantern logo on it, the Star Sapphire…

I’ve heard reports of a couple of other Error Rings. But these are on the rare side. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear offers in the low three figures. There’s something about these rings that drives a man nutty…

So check your rings. Check your logos. When picking out a ring from a bag at the shop, look through all of them. You never know, that Yellow Ring may be golden…
