Now this is just getting out of hand.

This auction is for the first issue of Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles with a starting bid of 99 cents, but a "Buy it Now" price of $6.99. That seems a little unreasonable.

But this auction ... well ... it's the whole enchilada -- all five issues -- for $99.99. Good gravy! Is anyone crazy enough to pay that much for that series? Apparently someone thinks so.

They may well be right. Looking back at completed auctions within the past couple of weeks, I see the first three issues selling for $20.50, the first issue on its own selling for $8.20 and $10.50 in two different auctions, and the whole lot going for a whopping $56.00. Wow!

The point: it seems there's actually demand out there for the series, and not enough supplies to go 'round. I guess the Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles DVD has reignited some people's interest in ROBOTECH, and those folks willing to sell Prelude over the internet are reaping the benefits.

  • Wow! This is amazing news considering I had to practically beg my comic shop owner to order me these issues when they originally came out!

  • It was incredibly difficult to find all five issues. I searched 5 of my local comic stores to find them all. Most of the copies were very beat up and some were even in the $1 bins. Well, let's hope the interest will boom into something more and revitalize the series.
