The Walking Dead Comic Book Issues #31 – 40 Values

Welcome to our price guide for Walking Dead comic books #31 – #40. A note about the values is that they come from actual online auction sales. The graded “CGC” values are from comic books that are already graded, which is an added cost if you don’t have your book graded/authenticated already. If you are selling your book, expect dealers to offer you towards (and below) the low end of the comic books value because they need to re-sell it. Additionally, the values don’t reflect ebay/paypal fees which run about 20%.

When issue #35 was first printed, it was messed p, and it was my fault. I downloaded the proofs and didn’t look at them right away. Image contacted me the next day to see if I had looked over the proofs and thinking back, I remembered downloading them, and I USUALLY look at the right away, so I figured I must have looked at them, and I didn’t REMEMBER there being a problem … so I approved the book. So then, when the book came in and was f**ked up (page 21 printed twice instead of 22) I couldn’t really do anything. The printer wouldn’t reprint it free of charge since it wasn’t their fault. So I reprinted the issue on my dime, eating the cost of an entire separate print run.

I’m still kicking myself for doing that.

But we participate in a retailer first look program, where retailers get copies of book a week early so they can show customers and adjust orders if they think they need more copies. I thought it’d be neat to let some of the BAD copies leak out in that program. It’s only 1500 copies or something. I figured they’d be collectors items, or a neat variant version for people to hunt down.

But I didn’t exactly announce this, so maybe it wasn’t the best idea.

Anyway, the vast majority of the print run 25,000 or so are completely fine. So you should have no trouble returning that copy to a retailer and getting a good one.
