Duplicate Comics

A symptom of fanboyitis is owning multiple copies of the same things. In Ash’s case, he sometimes has the same book in hardcover and soft shell. Other times, he might have a CD and a vinyl record. However, I was a little surprised when I saw that he had the exact same Legion comic twice. Did he think Superboy in a hair net was really funny and he needed an extra copy?


  1. They've begun to breed and multiply, like cockroaches. Destroy the infestation now, before it's too late.

  2. I have three copies of the new Daredevil 1, one is a variant cover but two are identical. Why? I'm wondering that too...

  3. Fans buying multiple copies probably artificially inflate sales figures and make a comic seem more popular than it is. That is, a comic sells 100, 000 copies, but that's because 50,000 customers each bought two. And that includes speculators who only buy comics as an investment.
