2nd, 3rd, etc... VEI trade paper backs

Post by bobby97801 »

Hi everyone,
I was going through my extra tbs today (embarrassing how many I have). While going through them, I found several second printings and one third. Does anybody have a list of all the printings? I plan on getting the ones I don't have and getting rid of my extras.
Thanks,
Bobby

I don't think there are many 2nd/3rd/etc. Printings? But I'm only getting floppies and hc's to be honest.

Here's the TPB variants and printings I know of:

Archer & Armstrong (2012) Vol. 1 - 1st (white), 2nd (yellow arc title; 2015)
Armor Hunters - 1st, 2nd (silver title)*
Bloodshot (2012) Vol. 1 - 1st (white), 2nd (grey arc title)*
Bloodshot Reborn - 1st (red), 2nd (dark dot)*
Death-Defying Doctor Mirage - 1st (white), 2nd (black title)
Divinity - 1st, 2nd*, 3rd
Eternal Warrior (2013) Vol. 1 - 1st, 2nd
Faith Mini -- 1st, 2nd, Fried Pie Variant, Hastings Variant
Harbinger (2012) Vol. 1 -- 1st (red), 2nd (yellow bird)
Harbinger (2012) Vol. 2 -- 1st, 2nd???
Ivar, Timewalker Vol. 1 -- 1st (white), 2nd (black title)
Livewire Vol. 1 - 1st, 2nd???
Ninjak (2015) Vol. 1 - 1st (white), 2nd (dark title)
Q&W (2013) Vol. 1 - 1st (white), 2nd (dark title)
Rai (2014) Vol. 1 - 1st (red), 2nd (white title)
Shadowman (2012) Vol. 1 -- 1st, 2nd
Unity (2013) Vol. 1 -- 1st, 2nd
The Valiant -- 1st (clean cover), 2nd (quote on cover)
X-O Manowar (2012) Vol. 1 -- 1st (Ribic; bright yellow), 2nd (Ribic; dark yellow)*/**, 3rd (Aja; bright orange), 4th (Aja; orange)
X-O Manowar (2012) Vol. 2 -- 1st (black), 2nd (yellow arc title; 2015)*

*mycomicshop.com list them as "2nd and later printings" but I can't find any information about add. 3rd/etc. printings except for Divinity.
**mycomicshop.com already lists the Aja cover for the 2nd Printing, however, on eBay people offer the Ribic cover as 2nd Printings.


Most VOL 01 TPBs have just been re-solicited in JUL 2020 but they're "offered again" and probably just leftovers of the most current printing (instead of brand new printings).


Comics Bento's mystery box from June 2016 came with TPBs of Armor Hunters, Faith, Harbinger: Renegades, HW. I have no idea if these were special printings. The information and pics that can be found online are quite confusing here. As if some people received the regular prints and some other people received edition with golden and silver titles.


HARDCOVERs (just in case):

Divinity Complete Trilogy - 1st (JKD), 2nd (Hairsine)
Harbinger (2012) Del Ed Book 1 - 1st, 2nd
Q&W (2013) Del Ed Book 1 - 1st, 2nd (solicited as New Printing in 2018)
Secret Weapons Dlx Ed - Regular (Allen), LCSD (Mack)
X-O Manowar (2012) Dlx Ed Book 1 - 1st, 2nd
X-O Manowar (2017) Dlx Ed Book 1 - Regular (Rocafort), LCSD (LaRosa)

X-O Manowar: Classic Omnibus Volume 1 - Regular (Quesada/Palmiotti/Mounts), DCBS (Layton)


For the following Dlx Ed hardcovers there are limited copies that were officially numbered and signed:

Archer & Armstrong (2012) Dlx Ed Book 1 (100 copies)
Bloodshot (2012) Dlx Ed Book 1 (100 copies)
Harbinger (2012) Dlx Ed Book 1 (500 copies)
X-O Manowar (2012) Dlx Ed Book 1 (500 copies)
X-O Manowar (2017) Dlx Ed Book 1 LCSD (1000 copies)


Hope it helps. Also hope it's accurate? It's probably not 100% accurate.

A few comments questions:

1) Did Bloodshot (2012) Deluxe have a second print? I thought only Harbinger, X-O Manowar and Quantum & Woody (2013) did? I have not seen a Bloodshot Deluxe second print. If it exist I will need to track it down.

2) If we are including both covers of Secret Weapons and X-O Manowar (2017), which we should, we should also include both covers for the X-O Manowar Classic Omnibus. There was a regular cover and a DCBS exclusive (although I doubt few people would be as OCD as me to buy two copies of an omnibus just because the dust jacket is different.

3) When taking a look at my Bloodshot (2012) deluxe to confirm the printing it has this glued on to the first page:

What is the story behind this? Did any other deluxe books have these tip in plates inserted?

My bad. I'll remove that.

You're correct!

More Dlx Ed were numbered and signed; not just Bloodshot. See my updated post.
