    Default PLEASE help me determine the printhing on my Dark Knight Triumphant!!

    Hello everyone, I'm new here. I created this account to ask a question and I just don't know where else to go.

    I've scoured the internet and have been unable to find any definitive examples of the differences between Dark Knight Triumphant (DKR book 2) 1st print or 2nd print.

    I first heard about it on a a youtube video but the video is pretty worthless cause there doesn't seem to be any difference between the two books he used as an example.

    According to the video (and internet lore perhaps?) the only way to determine the printing of DK book 2 is the inside cover.

    A first printing's gray will "match" the gray of the opposing title page.

    A second printing's gray will be "darker."

    That's all I have to go on. It's driving me absolutely crazy. I took some pics of mine. In some lighting, the gray looks the same. In other pics, it looks different. I'm gonna be crushed if I ended up with a 2nd print cause I actually had Frank sign it, and there's no way I'll ever ever be able to replace it with a first print if it turns out I was sold a second print.

    If anyone can help me I'll be eternally grateful.

    Here are the pics I snapped last night of the inside cover of my book. Man, I hated doing it too cause I never wanted to take it out of the bag in the first place, but I just had to know.

    Thank you!!

    I was about to tell you to just look for a "second printing" in the indicia, but decided to research it a bit. Turns out the second print of DKR #2 isn't marked that simply. Look it up at MyComicShop.com. According to them, almost matching grays mean first print, while the second print has inside covers "a good bit darker". Looking at your pics, they seem to almost match. My vote is on first print.

    If MyComicShop had any in stock, you could order a second print and compare/contrast for peace of mind. Can any long term collectors who actually bought the first print hot off the press post pictures for comparison? (I bought my copy as a back issue.)

    Guess this thread will die off. Even the OP is silent.

    I'm still following, just have nothing to add yet. I only have one copy of each book. 1, 3, and 4 are definitely 1st prints. I'm still unsure about 2 but I got a reply on another message board that based on the pics it's almost certainly a 1st.

    I'd really love to see side by side pics so we all know conclusively though.
