Spider-Man Reprint Price Increase: A Taste of Things To Come?

2 Comments

A few days ago, I bought you news of the latest batch of Marvel Omnibus Reprints being reduced in price by Amazon UK to just £46.50. The first of these reprint, Amazing Spider-Man: Volume One, was released yesterday, and Amazon has put the price up…

… To £75.

Of course, this might just be a brief mistake and the price might drop down again. Or it could be a taste of things to come. At the moment, other reprints – including Daredevil by Frank Miller, Uncanny X-Men: Volume 1 and Fantastic Four: Volume 1 and 2 – are still up for pre-order for £46.50.

But will those prices increase when they’re released?

We have to wait until 17th September, when the Uncanny X-Men goes on sale, to find out.

Also of note: despite being a brand-new book, this Spider-Man omnibus is only dispatched within 1 to 3 working weeks. Seems a bit lax, don’t you think?! Are they just covering themselves – and if so, why this product specifically?

Otherwise, head to Forbidden Planet.co.uk, which lists this book at £50.25.

UPDATE: Thanks for everyone who either commented – here’s looking at you, Eamon – or emailed me to let me know that, thankfully Amazon UK has dropped the price back down to £46.50. My copy (from Forbidden Planet.co.uk) was delivered a few days ago – and I love it. Let me know if you’ll be buying this beaut of a book!
