Days before its official release, the Batgirl series had already been ordered for a second printing. It also became one of ten DC titles with print runs of more than 100,000 copies. Now with that second printing sold out again, Batgirl is going for a third printing! Barbara is rocking the town!
Batgirl is not the only one selling out at every comic book shop. With orders higher than originally anticipated -and A LOT were anticipated,- and becoming a hard-to-find book, Batwoman #1 has also been ordered for a second printing! Great news for the Bat-ladies' fans, comic book creators, and the industry.
A few days ago, the cover for Birds of Prey #4 surfaced, not without its share of controversy. Batgirl will guest-star in the issue, but there was confusion regarding her costume, which was all miscolored. A DC Forums member by the name windbegantohowl re-colored Batgirl's armor, and now it looks a lot better. I wonder if the miscoloring was intentional; I can't believe it was just overlooked.
Finally, remember that San Diego Comic Con bag featuring the new Justice League I talked about a few weeks ago? Well, I found one on eBay for $12, and let me tell you... it was worth it! I was positive it was a tiny little thing like those Green Lantern bags they are giving out at Subway -and I still wanted it,- but what I received yesterday in the mail was a HUGE, sturdy, expensive looking, well done bag. I am not lying to you, it is the size of a standard pillow case and twice as wide. It is humongous, and a great collector's item. Not that I can do anything with it, but a great finding, nonetheless!
