  • I have a copy on my desk. 🤷‍♂️

  • More info on this...

    Apparently the book I picked up was actually recalled, and is being referred to as an error variant. Retailers were supposed to pull it from shelves but my LCS was slacking.

    They re-released the book as a non-error variant 2 weeks later.

    I'm not really sure what the error is. I've been trying to figure that out, but not a lot of luck so far. Should there be a second line entry for the error variant though?

  • Added. Speculation seems to be due to dark printing. Can you confirm with your copy?

  • Sure, I can take some pictures of my copy... is the dark printing on the inside, on the cover, or where? Happy to do whatever, but no idea what I'm looking for.

  • Do not know. I would think it would stand out seeing it was bad enough to be recalled.

  • So when I went to my LCS today, I tried to pick up a new #2 copy to compare it to the one that got recalled, but they unfortunately still only had the recalled one up on the shelf. Laughing

    I have no idea what was too dark with this print. All of the interior pages looked really good to me. I took a few pictures, but I don't think they'd be helpful at all unfortunately.

  • My LCS went page for page between the recalled and replacement issues and didn't spot anything glaring. It must be pretty subtle.

  • It's possible that not every book from the print run was affected.
