  • Hmmm, that sounded a lot like "We are going to kill our most popular character." See how long that death lasted in most cases... Wink
    The joy is in the journey, not just the destination.

  • All the companies are money hungry so it is no surprise to see them pushing out multiple prints.

  • It could be that image was trying to do this in order to curb the growing speculator market. Perhaps, remembering the last crash that was created by the market, they thought that if they limited printings to just one, people would order more initially, curbing the growth of the secondary market somewhat, and potentially avoiding a foreseeable crash.

    The rise in great independents lately has really created an enhanced speculator market that is much bigger now than usual. Books like Saga, Panzerfaust, Walking Dead, Thief of Thieves, etc have prices shooting through the roof in less than a year. Potentially, this could lead to another crash like in the 90s...

    Its possible that Image was trying to head this off before it happened, as responsible publishers....
