Printing: Sinestro is sporting something like an anime sweat bead on certain Green Lantern #1 covers thanks to a printing error. Somebody on eBay is trying to sell one as a variant for $10. Cool speculation, bro.
So, Walletpop recently did a podcast about the world of comic book speculation with "Astonishing X-Men" artist Phil Jimenez, the VP of CGC, a buyer at the enormous NYC-based retail store Midtown Comics, and me!
Listen! To me being a huge wet blanket about the profitability and wisdom of investing your money in comics! Thrill! To me taking a dim view of the future of comics as purely collectible objects!
It's actually a video, where you won't see me because I called in by phone, and I don't really have much to say until about sixteen minutes in when we start talking about Obama comics and variant covers. I go back and forth with Jimenez about fans who ask for signatures and put comics on eBay later this evening, and why consumers drive so many megacrossovers.
