Prints Charming – More Comics Sell Out And Get Second Prints – Transformers Vs GI Joe, Avengers, Big Trouble In Little China, X-O, Ragnarok, Unity, Turtles And Star Trek

Consider this an irregular feature looking at comic books that have gone to second prints or more. Now, it is worth remembering that some publishers plan second prints automatically, whether they are needed or not and will often just run extra first print copies in the initial run, set them aside and put a second print cover on them. It can be a marketing strategy, showing that there is confidence in the performance of the book, get a headline or three and use it to persuade retailers to up their orders of subsequent books. And comics news reporting sites become implicit in that market distortion every time we run them as a story. Also your store may still have the first prints in stock, but this will let your store order a few more

But hey ho, away we go. In for a penny…
