Okay, expecting resounding response rate of 1...so here goes...

...can anyone tell me what the print-run of the 1st Variant printing was like? I'm seeing about 6 versions of this book, regular, 5 variants....not including foreign issues.

This is the cover I mean...



I missed out on it when it was released and I'm seeing high prices for it so I just want to know if it's a good buy...and if it's the most collectible ish of ASM since #300?

More advice...I have a choice between

Ultimate Spider-Man 1 DF
Amazing Spider-Man 100

Both high-grade..

On another note, I've been mortified that Ultimate Spider-Man issues from 2up are nosediving on eBay...when a #2 (swinging cover) sells for $6.51 in NM - which was unthinkable from 2001-2006 or so, one wonders if only issues #1 and #5 are worth it anymore.

Mile High comics are sellling issues from 100 up for barely over a dollar... when they go so cheap one wonders what happened to this series. And I detest those variants from 104 up...

Since the total sales of all printings and variants went over 350,000, my guess is the first printing was close to 100,000. Note this is a lot for a Modern Age book. Anything over 50,000 is huge for a Modern Age book. You'd be shocked how low the numbers are for some titles. Stuff like Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, and Archie, sell around 3,000 per month. Certainly not enough to pay the bills, so someone with a heart (and some extra money) must be keeping these titles alive.

About Archie, #600 sold about 54,000 copies according to the August sales estimates on CBR.

Perhaps if Greg Horn did the covers, they can keep it that way
