  • Does anyone know print runs for UK editions of American comics? Bought a Tomb of Dracula 12 with the 6p instead of 20cents in the price corner. Just curious if anyone can shed light on numbers. Thanks!

  • From what I've read on the subject, the UK edition was usually around 5-10% of the total print run. Unfortunately the price on the comics do not reflect the rarity. In most cases you can usually find the UK variants for 50-75% of the US prices.

  • One other thing I have read, is that the UK editions were printer prior to the U.S. versions. I pick them up when I can, especially at reduced prices (high grade silver age). Only a matter of time before collectors come around to the fact of the print run etc, and the demand and values rise.
    People want to know. How can I live like this? The risks? The times I've descended into madness? The times I've died? How can I live like this? How could I live any other way?

  • Unfortunately i dont think thatll be the case here spector...kinda like the Canadian editions which the only reason there was a surge was because people were posting them as price variants when they were essentially 1st print CAN eds...and has since cooled back to normal.
