Green Lantern (New 52)
#1 Error (Recalled)
DC Comics, November 2011.
On September 15th (2011), DC received reports of a printing error on the front cover of some copies of Green Lantern (New 52) #1 (ref: JUL110218). The flaw appears to be an irregular
green loop ("tear drop" shape) and seems to have affected 10-15% of the initial print run.
DC recalled the copies with the printing error and replacements were available through Diamond on October 5th (2011) a week before #2 was due for delivery.
The error issues are widely available and can be picked for a couple of dollars over the cover price.
 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 Prices are just a guide and may be out-of-date so best to check other guides and realized sales from both auction sites and comic shops as well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
content of any pages please get in touch. Many thanks!
