|Your next Catwoman, ladies and gentlemen.|
See, word has it (from what authority, I can't say) that the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, will be based at least in part on "Prey." eBay sellers are now hocking complete sets of the five issues for ~$30. It stands to reason that the majority of those willing to pay these inflated prices are the same fanboys who live and die by the latest speculation gossip peddled by Ain't It Cool News. How many of them are out there remains to be seen. I'm of course irritated because it's a temporary speed bump in my filling in the holes of my library. I'm tempted to be bitter over Hot Topic shoppers who weren't even born when those issues went to print being responsible for all this, but the truth is that they're simply being manipulated by sellers who are leaping at the brief opportunity to finally unload these 20 year old issues and actually (finally) make some money off of them. In any event, it's only my own fault I never got around to buying the issues by now.
