New 52 1:200 Sketch Variants:
DC Comics, November 2011.
Following on from
Justice League #1, which launched DC's "New 52" re-boot, the rest of the titles appeared and four of the more popular ones
came with retailer incentive 1:200 sketch variants:
As these limited sketch editions hit the auction sites back in 2011, some went for over $250 as buyers were caught up in the initial adrenaline rush of DC's re-launch. As the revised
titles settled in, the prices then stabilised but were still going for 40 to 60 times the cover price and more in 2012. However, by 2014 all but the Batman sketch had dropped in price considerably
making the other three more affordable.
DC were not content with 1:200 limited sketch covers for just the initial issues, these continued to be produced for the many following issues as well. The prices for the subsequent
issues are tens of dollars less but they do have smaller print runs hence will be harder to get hold of.

 Most publishers don't disclose actual print run data and they may not know the exact numbers in any case due to inaccuracies of the printing process leading to overage/underage (it has also been common
practice to add 3-10% to the print run as cover against underage, spoilage and other damages). As well as distributed copies, there may be pre-press proofs (may differ from the main print run), spoilage (which
can lead to some error variants or comics being pulped), file copies, complimentary copies and other stock that is not distributed at the time. Any disclosed distribution data should be treated with caution as
this may not be totally accurate; note also limitations of the data: since around 2009, Diamond North America included most variants they distribute within its disclosed distribution data along with the standard
copies as one figure; also the data excludes distribution of the same English language copies outside North America (so, for example, UK distribution via Diamond UK is excluded). Estimates on this site are just
that and should be treated as a very rough guide only.
 Prices are just a guide and may be out-of-date so best to check other guides and realized sales from both auction sites and comic shops as well
for a more accurate measure of current value.
 Information is as accurate as possible at the time of publication but there may be some mistakes; if you note any problems with the
