The Matrix: Comic Book Preview
Warner Brothers, March 1999.
This comic was specially printed for the U.S. cinema audience for the film of the same title. However, the content was deemed too mature for that
audience and it was withdrawn and pulped.
Copies are fairly easy to obtain from auction sites such as ebay and a high grade raw copy could be purchased for less than $10. High grade CGC copies (over 120 are graded) have seen some upward price movements
recently and a CGC 9.8 copy could cost over $100.
 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 Prices are just a guide and may be out-of-date so best to check other guides and realized sales from both auction sites and comic shops as well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!
