Welcome to the first pre-order price list round-up, advising you on the upcoming releases.
Firstly, August’s Acts of Vengeance Crossovers is available at Amazon.co.uk for the excellent price of £27.65. In comparison, the two Forbidden Planets are selling it for over £50. It’ll probably only be of interest if you’ve got the first Acts of Vengeance omnibus, so Forbiddenplanet.co.uk has it for a reasonable £50.25. This is also the pre-order price of Amazing Spider-man By Michelinie and McFarlane and Wolverine By Jason Aaron.
Amazon’s price for The Dark Tower Slipcase Edition is just terrible at the moment (£93.50), so if you really want to pre-order it, go to Forbiddenplanet.co.uk (£73.70). Its release date is still a few months away, so it might be best to wait for the price to (hopefully) drop a bit.
X-Men By Claremont and Lee Volume One is sure to be popular, so if you want to ensure getting a copy, Amazon.co.uk has the best price of £52.50. There’s also going to be a lot of buzz over X-Statix, which can also be bought off Amazon.co.uk for £57.16. They continue their great prices with Fantastic Four By John Byrne at just £45.72.
Finally, Amazon.co.uk has the earliest prices on The Avengers (£45.72) and The X-Men By Claremont and Lee Volume Two (£61.73). Considering that they’re not expected to be published until 2012, it’s probably best to wait until closer to next year for better prices. I would argue, however, that it’ll be hard to beat Amazon’s price for the 728-page Avengers omnibus.
It seems that Amazon is the place to go for pre-orders!
