That was me since I won’t be able to get a copy here in Singapore.


Okay, I suspected it might have been you, but hadn't gone through my messages yet. I got my order in today, so I should have them in about 2 weeks.

Thank you. I just picked up Isola out of curiosity and now need to track down back issues.

Is that photo your weekly haul? :roll: :lol:

Since a lot of the first run arrived damaged, some stores returned most or all of their exclusives and awaited a second run. Apparently the second runs were all damaged like the first, so IDW allowed some stores to reduce their orders for the third attempt, so a few of these are now super limited:

Legends Comics and Games - 144 (some with minor damage, so probably wouldn't grade as a 9.8 or 9.6) from an initial run of 500
Slab City - 200 from an initial run of 600
Vault - 150 from an initial run of 500

I can't believe there are still copies available of Stan's Slab City variant.

Maybe this is one small reason why IDW is having financial woes? I wonder if it happens with other titles?

We should buy them all and horde them for 30 years.

Yes, the printing issues did affect some of their other titles, including one variant for TMNT.

Nice, just got mine today as well. It's one of my favorite covers.

By the way, welcome to the forum!

Waiting on my copy..........

They still have 46 copies available. If you act now you can own 25% of the entire print run. :wink:
