Spider-Man: The Special Inauguration Day Edition

Remember the collectible Spider-Man issue #583 that teams the webbed hero with now President Obama? When I mentioned it in a January 12th post,  The Christian Scientist Monitor was predicting a jump in value from the $3.99 face value to $20.00 on the day of issue alone.

Well…according to a post¬† on the LA Times blog To Live and Buy in LA, unsigned copies of the comic book are now selling for up to $200 on eBay.

A third printing is planned as pre-orders for the second printing sold out.

Want to add even more value to your Inauguration Day comic? If you’re in the LA area, drop by The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach tonight between 6 and 8 p.m. (PT) because Zeb Wells, the writer of issue #583 and Todd Nuack, the artist will be there for a free book-signing.
