People are going crazy over this. I haven't bothered checking ebay but I'm sure the first printing is going for a decent amount. The second printing went on sale yesterday. A third is already on its way but it seems that's still not enough. I would hope the demand is more out of a sense of owning a piece of history rather than an attempt at an investment. With so many copies in print and the different printings, it won't be hard to find a copy. It's just too bad that the main story didn't have a little more oomph to cause more readers to continue reading Amazing Spider-Man.
I haven't seen what color scheme this printing will have but it most likely won't be blue, yellow or green.
To meet the continuing, unprecedented demand, Marvel is going back to press with Amazing Spider-Man #583 Fourth Printing Variant. A record three sold out printings in three weeks will now be surpassed with a record fourth printing arriving in stores February 4th. Now’s your chance to experience the story uniting Barack Obama with the character that, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he named his favorite super hero!AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583 FOURTH PRINTING OBAMA VARIANT (DEC088033)
