They'll never be in the dollar bin, unless you mean the 2D covers. There aren't enough to go around, and the people who buy them will hang onto them (or resell them).

you numbskulls are always stuck in the '90s, these (Joker's Daughter 3D) weren't made in numbers to end up in dollar bins. A few of the 3D covers were printed in bigger numbers, not this one. But they still won't be in dollar bins.

Jude, you could fund the rising costs of The Outhouse website if you would only abandon your stupid and worthless digital comics. How many Joker's Daughter 3D covers would it take to cover a year? $130x?

You could probably cover the whole year for a $20 investment.

You're forgetting another key factor. After they melt they will. :P One trip to a convention? Darn heat will make those covers bend like they've never bended before.

Reminds me of all the vinyl records (or vinyls, as the kids call 'em) sitting out in the sun at the flea markets.

Yeah.
I hate the gimmick, and the idea, the mandatory DC art style, and the fact that like only three characters have visible feet (especially glaring on the Harley Quinn cover). But the quality of the 3d itself?

.... I've got to admit that was pretty impressive.

Some of them are kind of sharp in 3D, the same images look terrible in 2D though. I still have to admit, the thing I liked the most was having a real, substantially-thick cover stock instead of that wavy-gravy shit same-cover they usually do now.

I was kind of fascinated by the effects of lenticular 3D as a kid, they were all over in cracker jack or in mexican candle stores as plastic-framed Last Suppers and Black Jesuses.

I think I still have a Last Supper one, but Black Jesus was stolen at a party. One reason I don't have parties anymore.

Yeah, that's the reason. :cry:

:lol:

I had some 3D Tazos (pogs) that came in chips. They sucked when you were playing though.

I can imagine that texture being terrible for that!

The guy at the comic shop calls them corduroy comic books because on top of one another they make that vip-vip-vip-vip sound.

You know what the truly sad thing is? The Cyborg Superman is the most cheapest of the bunch proving not only what a crappy foil cover with an equally crappy story. WTF?! :smt013 :smt011

And thus the 3D horror cometh to an end.
