I’ve given up believing I understand anything about the comic book market anymore. If people are happy though, who am I to complain.
It's like trying to understand 21st century music trends.
Well to further your confusion I am a 45 year old father of two married 23 years and am listening to Shawn Mendes while I do my work in the office today.
And ... I like the Bob Dylan version and my wife likes Guns and Roses. Which until meeting her and talking about music I never even knew they covered the song.

That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing." -- Charles Bukowski
Someone maybe panicked and undersold this for $60, so I swooped in and grabbed it. This is the rare Patreon print of Rags #1, it was only available to Patreon subscribers and not in stores (which subsequently got the watered down Antarctic Press variant). This one had an estimated print run of 200 or so copies. My namesake comic.
It's still pretty hot, I flipped it for $250 24 hours later. Not too bad, it was fetching $300 during the boom.
