Spinning out of the ComicsPRO presentations in Portland comes the sly bit of news that Amazing Spider-Man #794 is going to a third printing.
The original issue sold out fast and went to a second printing using the cliffhanger page from that issue as the new cover, Norman Osborne receiving the Carnage symbiote, as everyone suddenly realised what the Red Goblin teasers meant. Every issue since has smashed through multiple printings as prices have soared on the aftermarket in the run up to Amazing Spider-Man #800, out in May.
I’m not sure yet what they’ll use for the third printing. But currently the first printing of Amazing Spider-Man #794 sells for up to $15, the second print for up to $14.
Also going to second print is Avengers #682, a week ahead of the release of the first print, and Marvel Two-in-One #3, which had the temerity to be published last week before selling out.
