Why is the New 52 so expensive? I've seen multiple auctions on ebay for 1-12 of Batman go for 50 bucks+. That's more than the cover price for goodness sake. Are New 52 printed in small quantities? As a new comer to comics I can get huge lots of runs on ebay and other comic sites for 20 bucks in NM condition, usually from 1990-2010. Why would I blow that ridiculous amount of money on 12 issues which are 3-4 bucks freshly printed never read which will probably be worthless in twenty years? What's going on here?
