I was two weeks late picking up my copy of Batman No. 13, and I don’t keep up on the comix news that much. Thus I was a little dismayed to see the die-cut cover.
“I hear that’s selling for $20 bucks on eBay,” said the lady behind the counter.
I smiled and nodded, but inside I thought, “Cripes, are we doing this again?”
I read the comic on the bus ride home. It’s well-constructed, and I’m on record as a fan of Scott Snyder’s. But the whole Joker-with-face-cut off is just a little too “Se7en” for me, and I am a little short on cash.
So I put it on eBay.
It was on eBay for a week, with a reserve price of $10. No takers. Part of me is sad it didn’t sell, but part of me is a little relieved.
