AE Format Out Of Print Sales September 2021

Luckily for most Artist’s Edition readers and collectors, almost all of these books are still available for their cover price from Diamond through your local comic shop. For the full list with Diamond order codes please see the AE Index.

The following are those volumes not available from Diamond or Lunar, either out of stock or on backorder, and most likely out of print, sorted by publisher. We’re only tracking standard editions on eBay, sold worldwide listings, and don’t track damaged books. If there are no sales for the reported month the previous month’s average will be used. Once a book makes this list I don’t remove it if it becomes available again through Diamond or Lunar.
