That Didn't Take Long...
Rich over at Bleeding Cool has the scoop. A 8.0 copy of Detective #27 (first Batman) has topped the Action #1 8.0 price of just a few days ago.
I knew it was going to happen, but holy shit, really? That frickin fast? The real question is, is it the same buyer as the Action #1? If so, how much money does this guy have, and how can I get him to shop at my store? (Yes, yes, I know, if I had a stack of 8.0 key Golden Age books, he would be camping out on my doorstop I'm sure).
There is a recession, but I guess people with piles of cash still have piles of cash, just a few less piles, but still plenty of piles to make purchases like this possible.
Wow. This is just nuts. What will happen come next week? How much more money can be spent on single, slabbed, comic books? You can't even read these babies, or even think about reading these books. I can't conceive of spending this much money on something big, like a house, but one book? We have entered a whole new arena here, and something tells me it's just going to get crazier.
