Upcoming DC Comics Facsimile Editions

Hey all, does anyone know what issues DC is going to be releasing in its Facsimile Edition range? I’m really looking for Batman #1 from 1940. Any insight would be greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Happy Sunday!

Previewsworld.com lets you preorder from your local comic store or if you dont have one then you can order from Mycomicshop.com and get a 30% discount but still have to pay shipping.
I’m bookmarking this. I am collecting the facsimile editions.

The next facsimile issue will be Jason Todd’s first appearance from Batman #357. It’ll be out in March. This week we should be getting some info about the April solicitations and what is coming next.

I saw that it is a vengeance of bane in april. So that raises the question, do i save money and get the facsimile, or do I go all out and get the original? If there is a facsimile will the fmv go down on it? I am trying to collect knightfall, so thats on the list.

If you’re looking to collect with an eye to sell the collection later for a profit, then you want to get the original if you can. But if you plan on holding onto the collection and enjoying it and possibly passing it down to children/grandchildren, then the facsimile edition is just as good as the original, probably even cheaper to purchase :slight_smile:
