Yeah, but on the other hand if they released too many of the Archive Editions it would flood the market.  $50 a pop is a lot for the average fan to spend.

My hope is that if the BATMAN CHRONICLES is successful that they will do the same with Superman.

I have yet to pay $50 for any of my archives. Most of they can be had for the price of a normal TPB.

Lucky you.  Most of the places around here have them for the cover price.  Of course I haven't tried Ebay yet, where I have seen some cheaper prices.

Thanks for the tip.  I keep meaning to get around to checking out Amazon.com.  I actually managed to get the first two volumes at a used book/comic book store for about ten bucks a piece, but that was a fluke.

I'm planning on buying some late 80's superman comics from e-bay, I have asked the seller if they are first prints and he has said "I think so". How can I tell if they are reprints or not? thanks

The best way to find out if a comic from that era is to look at all the little legal mumbo jumbo at the bottom of the splash page and see if it says second or third printing.  Usually it written in a different font than the rest of the wording.

Around 1988/1989 DC released reprints of their books in three packs that were mostly sold at toy stores.  The interesting thing about these printing is that the ads and the back cover all matched books published years afterwards.  So one of the copies of Superman (vol. 2) #3 I owned and a copy of a Batman book published in 1987 had ads from 1989, strange as it sounds.

Later on DC would put roman numerals to denote what printing the book was.

My suggestion is to ask the seller if any of the comics have 2nd printing listed in the places listed above.
