Does anyone know why that book over on the right, Batman Adventures: Dangerous Dames and Demons, a collection of Paul Dini's stories from the various Batman animated series inspired books, is so hard to find? Since it came out a few years ago I've asked for it in comic stores only to be told it was back-ordered, tried to order it on-line only to be told it wasn't available any more, and just looking for it now saw that on-line prices for used copies start at $80, more than five times the cover price. What up with that? Isn't the point of tradepaperbacks that you keep them in print, that they're easy to find? Is there some reason this was seemingly allowed to fall out-of-print so fast? With Paul Dini coming in as a writer on one of the regular Batman books shouldn't they get this back in print?
