This is, appropriately, rampant capitalist forces in action. Four days ago, Bleeding Cool broke the story that DC Comics had sent a cease-and-desist notice to Devil’s Due and the NY Collector Cave over a retailer exclusive variant cover of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & The Freedom Force: New Party, Who Dis? #1 over its resemblance to Wonder Woman. The story got picked up across the media, including Fox News, and a speculator feeding frenzy ensued on those copies that made it out before the C&D was imposed. And a limited run of 250 copies became even more limited.

Yesterday, an eBay store named drewbizz sold two copies for $799 each. But that’s only the beginning, they were both listed as ‘Buy It Now’. An auction for another copy being sold by knightkk19802012 has had eight bids to bring it to $1,000 with 6 days on the auction still to go.

Meanwhile, the print run for the rest of the run, even though it hasn’t been affected by this legal demand, is also picking up attention. Here’s a run down of recent online sales for the title:

Washington Warrior Variant $100 – this is not the banned Wonder Woman variant but enough people think that it is to repeatedly pay $100-$130 for dozens of copies. This may be because the New York Post and Fox News used the wrong cover when illustrating their story. It may also be worth pointing out for any numbskulls that this variant is currently still available from the Devil’s Due website for $10 – or $15 signed by the writer/publisher Josh Blaylock.

Sanctum Sanctorum Captain America variant sells for $70 on eBay.

Midtown Comics variant sells for $33 on eBay.

Legacy Comics variant sells for $30 on eBay.

Beyond Comics Gene Ha variant sells for $25 on eBay.

Photo variant sells for $25 on eBay.

Mad Max Wonderworld Comics variant sells for $25 on eBay.

That last one – still being sold by Wonderworld Comics for $20 – also raises the issue… will a lawyer at Warner Bros realise they own Mad Max as well as Wonder Woman?

Also… Warners is the company that owns and published MAD Magazine. Can they not see a slight hypocrisy here?
