Venom trade paperback

Post by kleaners » Wed Nov 15, 2017 12:44 pm

Why is Venom: Toxin with a Vengeance nearly $100 on Amazon? It's a trade paperback, not original issues. Were there really not enough printed and now they're in high demand?

Probably, yeah. Think Marvel often just do a one-off printing of a book when it comes out and then never go back to press, especially if it's not the sort of thing that's going to be wanted for ages due to perennial demand. So yeah, later volumes of low-to-mid selling series often don't last long, especially once the series is over and there's less likelihood of people going back and jumping on. Or collections of old stuff that's only of interest to a smaller niche market.
Read Hobson & Choi - my comedy-mystery webserial - right now.
More available on my blog and Twitter. Form an orderly queue.

Thanks. It's probably cheaper to buy the individual issues. And here I am trying to save on space.
