That's why I started a public list with notes rather than doing it all through PM. It gives me a place to keep my lists and details so I know where I am in the process and also publicly visible so people can correct me if I miss something. I have a separate Word document with the same info + a few other details I didn't want to make public (such as how much people have paid me so far) because with the Dojo being weird there for a few weeks, I wanted to have the data redundant in case something happened to the forum or my post. And then I back up that document in the cloud, just in case my computer takes a dive. I'm all about lists and redundancy, mostly for my own sanity. 8)

I just read on Bleeding Cool that UY#1 will be going back to print for a second printing
https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/07/09 ... ird-canto/

Does this mean there will be another/different UY#1 cover to hunt down or just a minor printing change?

Has an issue going back for a second printing ever happened before?

I know it is a different publisher now but I'd love for Dark Horse to do a second UY Saga #1 hardcover printing, it is the only saga hard cover I am missing and my shelf looks unbalanced but my wallet is too thin to pay current collector prices.

Although to carry on from above, the cover was the same for both printing (well, almost in the case of #10). First time Usagi has a new cover image for a second print.

Whew! Nice! Thanks for letting us know, Kyle. I love Vess's art so I'm especially grateful for your work to secure these for us. Peace, maka

Just be thankful we aren’t collecting vampirella.

“The record-breaking Vampirella #1 from Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke) and Ergün Gündüz is set to release on July 17, and fans can expect no less than a whopping 84 covers to honor the Daughter of Drakulon on her 50th anniversary.”

I'm glad you were able to get them.

Did you see the slabbed copies on eBay with Vess and Sakai sketches? Cool, but not $700 cool. :lol:

Picked up the Dogu Chibi covers today for our order. If you requested the signatures/remarques on the back (and this includes me), sorry, but they're all on the front. I think that's just how they do them.

I also purchased all the Signing Tour requests for SDCC and the IDW SDCC Exclusive 2-pack virgin covers.

Ha! We all had the same idea.

EDIT: Just to be sure, I decided against signatures and remarques because I wanted to keep the cover clean. I'll survive if you bought me a signed copy. I can't find my wishlist. :lol:

Disgusting. That is a blatant attempt to rip off collectors. Also a new winner for most covers of a first print (by about 4) but not if second prints are included
