    just like the death of cap variant, people going apeshit for a comic they can get MONTHS later for nothing.

    dunno, but apparently SF got the shaft on these issues, cause my lcbs was making a huge deal out of it. I got my non variant cover, and I see it on ebay for $30. dunno if I should capitalize when it's still hot or wait it out.

    Fuck that shit- my lcs didn't help me out at all. I lent two of my rare comics to them for use in the local paper to promote Spiderman 3 and Iron Man and the motherucker tells me he wants 20 bucks for the Obama version? Fuck that bandwagon and my lcs.

    True, but the death of cap had a big overprint (not reprint) at the beginning. It seems like lots of retailers didn't get the variant, or definitely not enough for demand. So it'll probably go down in price, but by how much :dunno:

    It's already going to go into a 3rd printing, with the same cover but reversed.

    Naw. First black president is some historic stuff. Surely it'll be worth more than 50 cents.

    Well thats just your LCBS being a bunch of faggots and trying to take your money. They don't get charged anymore for the variant covers, so why should we pay up to $50 for them?
