Did you like DC's 3D covers? (NOT the idea... the covers)

This is the main board on The Outhouse, where Outhousers talk about everything. No topics are off limits, and it doesn't have to be about comics. All the topics from the other boards also show up in The Asylum, so you never have to leave1

Like the covers themselves (NOT the idea or implememntation)

Yes, they were great!

Let me know. I'm going hunting tomorrow for a Harley at some of the local shops. I got the 2D but the 3Ds are purty.

About 10 minutes after the books hit the shelf one store in Calgary was charging $20 for the Harley cover. When the nice lady asked me if I wanted one I said there was no was I was paying 5 times cover price for a comic less than 10 minutes old.

I went to another store and bought it at cover price.

Two things.

1) a comic shop selling the book the day it's out for more than cover price isn't actually a case of comic book "speculation". It's more like what you would call price-gouging. For a legitimate comic book shop with regular customers, kind of a dick move. But then, DC it the one who set them up for it.

2) it's mainly collectors and/or people who couldn't get the covers they wanted, again thanks to DC, who are paying over-cover price for them. There really isn't any secret cabal of speculators who imagine 3D covers will be a good long-term investment, most especially not if they're already paying 10-50 bucks for them. All you have to do to realize that is look at the price of most New52DC #1s now as opposed to when they debuted with more demand than supply.

From what I saw, about 30% of comics shops marked them up to some degree, even just a $1, on the day of release. These covers appeal to the collectors.

I'm willing to spend more for the 3d cover just cause they're neat but not in much more than $10. I figure it'll go back down when the eBay speculation wears off.

I've had to spend to fill in some blanks (Suicide Squad 6 when I added the title to my regular pull, Catwoman 13 when I found out it was DotF)

What's been blowing my mind is how my Detective Comics #1 is still going for? That book was crap.

I'm going to wildly speculate here that Arion didn't actually read this issue :lol:

I placed an entire small press comics order off of two Harleys.

Joker's Daughter is already around $50 before release.

Were Harley's tits always so massive? It's not the 3D, they are way bigger than a D cup on that cover. I'm not trying to make titty jokes, semi-serious question. I would have pegged her for a 34 C.

There will likely be none of these in shops, I dunno if I'll even be able to find one.

It'll be $15 next month. That is definitely someone snorting something.
